Super-Creepy Yet Effective Anti-Obamacare Ads Target College Students (VIDEOS)

Hey ladies, can you imagine a clownish-looking Uncle Sam doing your pap smear? Or guys, how about that Uncle Sam examining your bumhole for a prostate exam?

Not the greatest image, right? Exactly.

The folks at the conservative Generation Opportunity have harnessed those yucky, disturbing images into political meme videos that are quickly going viral. The videos target college students and are part of a larger attempt to convince them to opt out of the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, with a tagline “don’t let government play doctor.”

“Generation Opportunity, a national, non-partisan youth advocacy organization, is launching #OptOut, a digital and grassroots campaign designed to highlight alternatives to expensive and creepy Obamacare exchanges,” the group’s website states.

“Later this month, the group will begin a tour of 20 college campuses, where they plan to set up shop alongside pro-Obamacare activists such as Enroll America that are working to sign people up for the insurance exchanges,” Yahoo news reports.

Some of the information they’ll tout includes the fact that “Obamacare will force Millennials to pay more to cover costs for  the wealthier. Rates will increase by an average of 169% for the young while older people will pay about 22% less,” Generation Opportunity’s website states, adding the loss of privacy and exemptions for politicians and their staff will also be explained to college students.

And now … for the videos.

The first one is aimed at women, the next one’s for the men:
