Obama Health Care Logo Sparks Controversy

by at . Comments

Debate over the health care plan championed by U.S. President Barack Obama is turning rancorous, with figures on both sides of the discussion lobbing harsh criticism at the other and even the Obama health care logo coming under attack.

As we saw with this week's Obama Joker poster, which brandished the word "socialism" and likened the Prez to Heath Ledger's character in The Dark Knight, there has been vehement opposition to some of the President's policy initiatives.

Addressing some of the opposition she has encountered, the U.S. Speaker of the House and universal health care advocate, Nancy Pelosi, recently accused protesters at Democratic health care town hall meetings of carrying swastikas.

In response, the website Sweetness and Light likened the Obama health care logo to a swastika and compared Democrats to Nazis. Makes perfect sense.

Here's the Obama health care logo ...

Fairly innocuous, right? Not according to Sweetness and Light, which proves that if you look hard enough, one can find a swastika hidden in anything ...

Obama Health Care Logo 3

There you have it. The President must be a Nazi.

According to Sweetness and Light, which fashioned the controversial photo comparison seen above, the Nazis and the Democrats are both:

"Against big banks and capitalism, against big stores, against pollution, for two years mandatory voluntary service to the country, for make-work projects, against cruelty and to animals, against smoking, for abortion and for universal health care."

Just another day of modern American political discourse.

actually the image contains the sun rising over a newly plowed field which is the core Obama logo. When was the last time a US president had a "logo" ? What was bush's logo ? or Clinton's ? I'm not in any way a right winger but the Obama camp use of imagery has from the begining remined me of the Nazi use of imagery. Early nazi campaign posters were exactly a sun rising, with a swastica in it, over a newly plowed field. Many, Many nazi images and stamps etc were the sun rising over a new day on earth. Its just a new age thing i guess and both hitler and obama are stupid new agers, but i think its extreemly creepy and worth pointing out.

Most who are for this can't read the bill. They have a gov't education which denies them the ability to comprehend what they are reading.. Remember a gov't big enough to give you everything is a gov't big enough to take it away..
I do not want this gov't giving health care to anybody and the SCIPS program I believe should be recalled, if you can't afford the kids , don't have them...this country has turned into an enabler..
who is going to pay for all this?? we don't have enough rich people in this country, and the ones we do have are dual citizens with other countries.. do you think they will continue here if they are taxed to pay for all the people who have no desire to take care of themselves?? If you believe this is H.C. bill is what we need, then I have some COUNTRY OCEAN FRONT PROPERTY IN CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI, where unemployment is low, taxes are low, I will sell you for $50,000 7 acres and an old house..

To all of you that back Obamas health. HAVE YOU READ IT. I have.
Please read it. Every page has what the GOVERNMENT tells you you have to do. Dr. Blumenthal in Washington will "oversee" the choices your doctor makes about you. When you old and sick they will send you classes that show you how to end your life thats how they will save money.Pages 427-430. They will have access to your bank account. I have a friend in Belgium, it takes months to see a doctor ad then about 3 hours in his office to see him.
We do so need a reform but not this way.Expand Medicaid to all that don't have health insurance

Oh common, thats a joke. Whats has this to do with Nazi's people or Nazi symbols?! You guys just have tag along with each other instead of criticize each other and YOUR president. At least he's trying to do something for the normal people in the US instead of making the richer more wealthy. I think he wants only the best for you Americans(poor or rich) but i think the Republicans can't handle a normal status of health care for all b/c of their insurance companies will loose money and thats the simple case! Be glad the USA is back into the limelight in the world b/c of Obama. Just my 2 cents of course.

How about you get clever and spend your energy defend the folks attending those meetings exercising their CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.

Eagle imagery is fairly common in American iconography. The Obama logo has more in common with the back of a quarter than the Nazi symbol.

I like the way you completely gloss over Nancy Pelosi's comment about the town hall attenders carrying swastikas, which there is NO evidence of anywhere, and you don't bother to defend those poor folks. Instead, when someone responds to NANCY'S initial swastika comments (that started it all) you attack them. Bye by your credibility.

Has anyone looked at the medical symbol lately? I guess they are nazis also. Lets quit picking the president apart and start backing some of the reforms he is trying to enact.
