Does anyone remember Bill Rice? I do. He was the Rethug who had his finger bit off by a health reform supporter after Rice sucker punched him. The incident was featured in one of the original posts I did here at RDT titled: “Pay or Die Supporter Gives Us the Finger – Literally”
Now Fake News’ Neil Cavuto has taken Rice out of mothballs as the anecdotal argument justifying the wave of right-wing terrorism incited by Republican propagandists – as if to say, “see! Liberals are violent too!” Too bad Repug whiners can’t seem to get their stories straight.
He’s had almost a year to rewrite the tale, and that’s how far Cavuto had to reach to find anything akin to the terrorism Rethugs perpetrate on normal America. Anyone who merely peruses today’s headlines can find Rethugs, not only inciting violence, but treasonously working to overthrow our duly elected President. Still, Cavuto does try rather pathetically to twist himself into a pretzel to make this one incident, where a liberal defended himself from a right-wing assault, seem comparable. Unsurprisingly, Cavuto also continues to cite the stray bullet that accidentally hit Eric Cantor’s office as if it were an intentional attack. No wonder independent studies revealed that Faux News viewers are hopelessly misinformed about reality – that is clearly by DESIGN.
In the incident’s latest incarnation, Bill Rice is an innocent passerby who only stopped to survey whether or not the Code Pink and MoveOn.com crowd was paying proper deference to his “hero” son who had just enlisted to fight in Corporate America’s oil wars. When satisfied with the going’s on, Rice was innocently making his way back towards his car when a crazed liberal, no doubt enraged by Rice’s unapologetic patriotism and completely hetero manly scent, locked in on Rice, hurling unprovoked pejoratives, and made a b-line through the crowd to assault him. Rice was forced to defend himself by turning his compassionate conservative hands into fists of fiscal fury and in the scuffle, the lunatic lefty bit his pinky off!
Pay no mind to the fact that when Rice first wove this yarn, he admitted he was a willing participant of the counter-protest and was the first of the two to escalate to violence and throw a punch. True to form, Republicans never let the facts, much less their own words, get in the way of propagating a good disingenuous meme.
Oh yes… as to be expected with these freaks who want government hands off their government sponsored health care, Bill Rice had his injury treated courtesy of Medicaid – the socialized health care system he currently enjoys.
Here’s the text from the original post, along with the video:
A Republican man who had his finger bitten off after punching a health care reform supporter in the face has had his injury treated courtesy of the socialized health care system he currently enjoys.
Bill Rice is a recipient of the socialized medicine system known as Medicaid, yet he is spending his golden years fighting to maintain the sickening profits of Insurance Companies who routinely kill 45,000 of his fellow Americans each year for lack of health care.
Bill Rice also believes that Insurance Companies should continue to force 1.5 million of his fellow citizens into a uniquely American “medical bankruptcy” so their CEOs (who don’t actually add any VALUE to our health care system, but simply collect money, pay or deny claims and add or drop their customers from their rolls based solely on profit) can continue to collect their exorbitant salaries and golden parachutes.
Although I don’t condone biting Republicans, if only due to their bitter taste, here we have another example of their utter lack of a sense of irony as they decry a life-saving health system while simultaneously sucking on it’s teat.
After the finger was treated courtesy of the public dole, the Republican hypocrite made a beeline to Corporate America’s propaganda outlet Faux News to join the chorus of paranoid whiners, crying about their victimization and decrying the audacity of a person who has the nerve to retaliate to a Republican sucker-punch.
