Buzzfeed features liberals’ tweets to portray conservatives as stupid

http://twitter.com/#!/BuzzFeedAndrew/status/218363542347321347

Yesterday, Buzzfeed ran an article, “People Who Say They’re Moving To Canada Because Of ObamaCare, featuring 17 people who claim they are moving to Canada to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Affordable Care Act. The snarky subhead: “I’m sure they’ll like the healthcare just fine there.”

Shorter Buzzfeed: Stupid conservatives! So very, very stupid!

Needless to say, the Buzzfeed article has gotten lots of play on the left side of the Twitter-sphere:

Mad about #SCOTUS? Mad enough to move to Canada? Where they have single payer? http://t.co/e25IDUSf h/t @ProducerGuy1

It makes me laugh people claim they are moving to Canada because of Obamacare….uh, have you people heard of Canada's healthcare system?

if you're angry about #obamacare, and you say or post that you are moving to canada, you are too stupid to live anywhere on this planet.

Even “Slutty Slut Slut” joins in on the mockery:

Just one little problem: Some of the tweets featured by Buzzfeed are obviously not supposed to be taken seriously:

I'm moving to Canada, the United States is entirely too socialist.

— Walter Weldon (@WallyWeldon) June 28, 2012

#SCOTUS holds up free healthcare for everyone?! Screw this commie country, I'm moving to #Canada #whoswithme

— Van Summers (@VanSummers) June 28, 2012

The supreme court upheld Obama Care. That's it. I'm moving to Canada!

— Lucas Dargis (@LucasDargis) June 28, 2012

A few minutes of research reveals that at least one-third of the “stupid conservatives” featured by the sarcasm-challenged Buzzfeed reporter aren’t conservative and don’t oppose Obamacare:

@nahUSN The point is, it was a joke, a ruse. I am a liberal Democrat. (I would love Canada.) The internet is safe. Go smash the right wing.

— James (@15c3PO) June 29, 2012

@chrispeck97 I don't really have a strong opinion. I was just making a joke. Guess the joke's on me!

— Lucas Dargis (@LucasDargis) June 28, 2012

@KyroDCK Yes, as would have been explained 1,000 times if you would have read my feed. I made a joke and morons couldn't contextualize.

— Walter Weldon (@WallyWeldon) June 29, 2012

@BraunBraun Meaning the tweet was a joke, I don't think the US is a socialist country, and I support the law in large.

— Walter Weldon (@WallyWeldon) June 29, 2012

@elderJess I was. But if anyone asks…I'm on my way to Toronto now

— Van Summers (@VanSummers) June 29, 2012

People who got pissed that I said I wanted to go to Canada. It's. a joke. obviously people for understand sarcasm.#someonesmissingabrainlego

This woman who was featured in the Buzzfeed article wasn’t even talking about health care:

Looks like the joke’s on you, Buzzfeed.

Update: 24 hours later, the Left is still laughing at all those stupid conservatives.
