Healther

The political term “healther” follows similar terms, such as “truther” (9/11 truth movement follower) and “birther” (presidential citizenship skeptic). “‘Birthers’ are not a threat to the USA. The threat comes from supporters of #Obamacare, otherwise known as #HEALTHERS” was posted on Twitter on July 24, 2009. This definition of “healther” meant someone supporting the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"). Ben Cohen, editor of The Daily Banter, used “healthers” on August 7, 2009 to describe people opposing Obamacare. This use of “healther” was clearly inspired by “truther” and “birther.”

Health concerns about presidential candidate Hillary Clinton surfaced in May 2014 and again in August 2016. Those questioning Clinton’s health were dubbed “healthers.” “New birth certificate #birthers #healthers RT @TPM: Fox guest: Hillary could end health speculation by releasing her records” was posted on Twitter on May 14, 2014. “The new birthers: Debunking the Hillary Clinton health conspiracy” by CNN’s Gregory Krieg on August 22, 2016 stated:

“Much in the way ‘birthers’ (Trump was among the most prominent) sought similar ends by questioning President Barack Obama’s citizenship, the ‘healthers’ are using junk science and conspiracy theories to argue that Clinton is suffering from a series of debilitating brain injuries.”

Fear of Healthcare or Fear of Black People? Introducing the ‘Healthers’

I think we should come up with a new term for the Healthcare nuts - the ‘Healthers’ in homage to the ‘Birthers’. They are equally as crazy, equally wrong, and at the end of the day, equally racist.

That is why I am proposing calling those opposed to a public insurance plan “Healthers.”

The Healthers exhibit familiar tendencies to Birthers. They have no interest in civil debate, cannot be swayed by fact, display psychotic, child like behavior in public, and have a deep seated fear of black people.
