Obamacare's "Freaky" product-placement: illegal slaughterhouse edition


FreakyObamacare has freaky bad luck.

It's still unpopular (despite recent good news), has played a role in Democratic mid-term woes and now it appears in the most-unfortunate of places: On the T-Shirt of Raul “Freaky” Fernandez, caught on video at an "illegal West Miami-Dade slaughterhouse where pigs destined for Christmas dinner tables were shot, stabbed, beaten with sledgehammers and gutted and boiled while alive," according to this Miami Herald story on a new arrest.

"We support Obamacare," Fernandez's shirt says.

Animal rights? 

Not so much.

The video is enough to make you think hard about being a vegetarian. Fernandez, 53, and Yonisley “Pipe” Garcia, 28, were arrested as part of "Operation Noche Buena," named after the Christmas Eve "good night" celebration that often involves a roast pig. And, in the process, Obamacare's ox gets gored in the freakiest of coincidences.
