Adopt socialized healthcare, America. It's just what them Chinamen want!

Sorry for the slur in the headline, but how else would you describe the key message of this political ad?

Mother Jones posted this ad by"Citizens Against Government Waste" whose mission is to "eliminate waste, mismanagement, and inefficiency in the federal government." This includes ongoing lobbying against "Obamacare".

Calling for political debate is one thing. But race-baiting right with Americans with fears of a Chinese planet is uncalled for. Besides which, it was the decidedly non-socialist Nixon who opened the gates to trade with China to begin with.

The best (and by that I mean "most appalling") part of the video is when the menacing professor shows the lecture hall full of Communist automatons what evil geniuses them Chinese really is. I was almost expecting an "ah-so"...

He would, however, make an awesome Bond villain.
