We are working out way through the hours of footage we gathered at the How To Take Back America Conference and editing it down for easier consumption.
Below is audio from the workshop called “How to Stop Socialism in Health Care,” featuring Larry Huntoon, former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, Frank Rosenbloom of Oregon Right to Life, and Dr. Allen Unruh.
Huntoon, representing the AAPS (which bills itself as a conservative alternative to the AMA), argued that any governmental “interference” in the practice of health case is unconstitutional, and that the Obama administration is really only interested in power. “Just like the fraud and deception of socialism itself,” he said, proposals for reform have more to do with government gaining control over the lives of individuals than of health care.
Dr. Allen Unruh, whose speech was largely a series of quotes and quips, warned that “we either live in freedom or in servitude, there is no middle ground” and claimed that Obama’s health care plans would result in dismantling the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th, 10th, and 13th amendments, stating that it would turn all doctors into “slaves of the state” and result in “slavery reenacted by our first black president.”
For his part, Rosenbloom lashed out at President Obama’s policies and at suggestions that opposition to his administration reflected racism, oddly joking that even though his wife was not white, he loved her anyway. Obama, he said, is a supporter of Planned Parenthood and therefore responsible for genocide against black children. “Liberals are the true racists in this society,” he proclaimed. But he was just warming up. Rosenbloom compared Obama to Adolf Hitler, saying “fascism is happening here and now.” Recalling President Obama’s statement that if his daughter mistakenly became pregnant, he would not want her to be punished with a baby, Rosenbloom said that is the sort of “moral sewage that is running our country.”
Among Rosenbloom’s other statements:
- For President Obama, he said, “it’s not about health care, it’s about subjugation and control.”
- “Obama’s not stupid. I’m sorry, but he’s just evil.”
- “He is a statist. He believes in control by government and its dear leaders, fascism by any other name.”
Rosenbloom called for an end to Medicare and Medicaid, saying that people could be provided for through tax subsidies for buying insurance. “We must oppose this diabolical change for government of the people, by the people and for the people will perish from the face of the earth.”
Finally, during the Q & A, an audience member asked what they could to do prevent the government from setting up quarantines or forcing vaccinations in order to try and stem a swine flu epidemic, to which the panelists suggested “maybe the Second Amendment is a good thing to think about:
