Opposed to Obama’s Healthcare Reform? Guess You’re a Racist

By Kiran Aditham 

Since this pretty absurd ad about Obama’s health care reform really has no discernible origin, it’s hard to tell whether it’s real or fake. While looking for sightings of Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig or hell, even a Fox News logo to no avail, we were flabbergasted by the “Guess I’m a Racist” mantra repeated over and over again by its sullen protagonists (including a Dubya lookalike!). The ad’s basic message verbatim: “If a person is racist just for opposing Obama’s government health plan, then apparently a lot of people in this country are racist!”

Gawker’s Foster Kamer, who offers more in-depth analysis of the spot, put it best: “This is the worst thing telling me what’s racist and what isn’t since Crash.”

Update: A commenter alerts us that, sadly, it is kinda sorta real and comes from here.
