Collectivist Gift to Obama: Olympic Opening Ceremony Honors National Health Care!

Did you watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics on Friday night? I did. Yeah, we did. We watched. We gathered at the big 16-foot screen. I figured, if I’m gonna be assaulted and insulted by a bunch of British collectivists, I may as well go all in. So I fired up the big screen, the 16 foot. I didn’t want to look at the simple little five-foot screen. I fired up the big mama. I had Kathryn in there and her mom and dad are in town and we watched this. When her mom and dad are in town, I kind of dial back on the political commentary, but I couldn’t help it. I couldn’t help it when they started honoring the freaking National Health Service.

Now, the guy who put together the opening ceremony, Danny Boyle, who did Slumdog Millionaire, the movie, he’s a big leftist. They made no secret of this. They actually pulled working nurses out of the hospitals to have ’em participate in the opening ceremony. They honored the Industrial Revolution. They honored unions. This guy decided, okay, we’re gonna put an opening ceremony together of what is good and righteous about the United Kingdom. And, as we’re watching this, and I’m watching this re-creation of the Industrial Revolution, they had these giant smokestacks that came out of the ground. Ah, here we go, global warming, pollution. I started nudging Kathryn, I said, “Here we go. We’re gonna get preached to by a bunch of commie collectivists and so forth.” She said, “Shshshsh, no politics, no politics.”

So I dialed it back, and then the National Health Service thing came. Of all the things that you want to honor. I mean, the people of Great Britain don’t even like the National Health Service! And then it hit me, and then it hit me. It was actually done on behalf of President Kardashian. They did it for Obama. Nobody will convince me otherwise. I mean, they had the cover of doing this and honoring Great Britain, the opening ceremony, but we got a presidential election coming up, three checks away for you welfare recipients, and they honor the National Health Service, and we’re in the midst of a giant controversy. Here, listen to Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira, who they got back out of mothballs for this to help coanchor with Matt Lauer. Here they are as the National Health Service is being honored. This is how NBC covered it.
