This is a video of my friend and blogmother Jane unleashing fury upon an ignorant rightwinger. Somehow Jane’s interlocutor thought a surefire way to discredit the contention that health care is a basic human right would be to call it as absurd as the contention that food is a basic human right. ThinkProgress’s Matt Corley beat me to reminding her that the right to food is enshrined in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It remains alarming and distressing that there are those in this country who will never go hungry and who find it impossible to recognize that for the privilege it is.
