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

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.—

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:
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.
