Conservatives Steal Blogger's Photo For Anti-Obamacare Dirty Trick
March 26, 2014

As I've written many times, conservatives will create any lie as long as it helps their causes. Here's the latest case in point via Americablog

Helene isn’t having the best week. The Texas blogger was visiting Las Vegas for a bachelorette party this past weekend, and woke up on Saturday to find that she’d become the latest anti-Obamacare poster child.

The thing is, Helene never signed up for the job.

In fact, she told me yesterday that she’s quite happy with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and with the “affordable” health care it helped her find.

“Not only do I not agree with what the image is portraying,” Helene wrote me, “I actually have Affordable Healthcare!”

So, if anything, Helene is an Obamacare success story.

But that didn’t stop over 17,000 people on Facebook from sharing an image of her face, posted just days ago, with a caption complaining about Obamacare. To add insult to injury, the people who stole her image couldn’t even spell “conspiracy” right.

The typo says it all about these people, doesn't it? This is indeed a sick and twisted move by conservative ratf*&kers. It's too bad that Helene has been unwittingly used as a tool for tea party propaganda games when all she did was take a selfie after a bad hair day.

You might remember this picture from THIS POST when the guy at the hair salon dyed my hair way too dark and I was so upset I took a selfie mid cry. I also used the photo when I went through the different shades of my hair color throughout my hair dying years. Never did I imagine it would be swiped and used for propaganda.

I wish she could sue the pants off of these people.

If Obamacare is so horrible then why do conservatives have to lie so much about it?
