Diane Campbell of Kingston, N.H., held a sign with Mr. Obama's face superimposed on a Nazi storm trooper, a sign, she said, that was made by her chronically ill mother.
Her mother's hereditary autoimmune disease is treated with expensive transfusions of gamma globulin, paid for by Medicare. Her sister, Louise, was born with no arms and one leg, and is also covered by Medicare, the government-run, health-insurance program for the elderly and disabled.
"Adolf Hitler was for exterminating the weak, not just the Jews and stuff, and socialism -- that's what's going to happen."
I'm really not sure what to think of Ms. Campbell. Maybe she is sincere in her belief that her mother and sister are going to be put to death after a death panel review. Because that is what she has heard on talk radio. Unfortunately, that is also what she has been told by Republican government (or ex-government in the case of Palin) officials.
Ms. Campbell has apparently trusted the government to take care of her mother and sister for years. Now all of a sudden she mistrusts government because they supposedly want to kill her mother and sister. Yet she trusts the lying words of various Republican government officials that this is exactly what is going to happen.
