Ludicrous right-wing lies

Postby ilikebeans » Wed Sep 19, 2012 10:59 pm

Ok, so we've had two big, fat, ridiculous lies in the past couple of days.

Ned Flanders wrote:
In the meatime, we've just had an ambassador kidnapped, sodomized, murdered and dragged through the streets by the 7th century throwbacks that Obama so loves to bow to.

Outside of "murdered," completely false. (To be fair to Ned, he did retract it.)

johnfajardohenry (John Henry) wrote:
That is $105,000.00 worth of overpriced champagne artfully arrayed, at additional cost by a famous designer, at Obama's fundraiser the other night.

...which was then revealed by Ducatista to be a permanent fixture at the bar.

Have I missed other huge propagandist lies lately? I mean something other than the standard "tax cuts for the wealthy will fix the economy" bullshit we all know.

Obama is hiding illegals in the White House basement.

He said he would if it was proven false. We are still waiting for that retraction.

So where is the "lie"? He was kidnapped, he was dragged through the streets, early reports did claim he was sodomized (though they appear to have been wrong), Obama does bow to Mid-East leaders.

So where is the lie?

So where is the lie?

Did I say that it was specially constructed for Obama?

Is this what it looks like when you party with Obama? (As I said)

Is it an example of piggishness? (That is an opinion so your mileage may vary)

Where is the lie?

I call BS, Beans.

"There is someone inside ... He is a foreigner, he is a foreigner. Take him out," said one man, shouting for help.

"Bring him out, man! Bring him out," another said.

"The man is alive. Bring him out, man. Bring him out," said a third.

"Alive, Alive! God is Greatest," the crowd cried. Someone called for a car.

"Make space, is there someone who is a medic around? Anyone who can get a car quickly?" another man can be heard saying.


The footage shows Stevens lying on the floor in a smoke-filled room after protesters had stormed the compound and set fire to its buildings.

Minutes later he was pulled out of the room through a window, and then placed on the courtyard's stone tile floor. A young man is seen putting his hand on his neck to check if he was breathing.

A protester wearing a white T-shirt who had carried Stevens out of the room was hugged by a fellow protestor in a traditional expression of gratitude.

Seconds after the protesters found Stevens was alive, a young man in the background can be heard shouting: "Take him to my car, bring him to my car."

A doctor on duty in the emergency room at the Benghazi Medical Centre that night has said local civilians brought in the ambassador at around 1 a.m. While the doctor performed CPR for 45 minutes

Still want to say he was dragged through the streets?

The piggishness was so bad that even Obama was embarrassed and there is supposed to be an embargo on photos.



Was there an additional cost? If the fundraiser were at the Bellgio in Vegas, would you comment on the large Chihuly sculpture in the entry way that has always been there. Did you even know this has always been at the club. Please point me to the quote where they said there was an embargo on the photos.

John Henry- I'm guessing you've chosen to respond on this thread instead of the one where you first stated these particular lies because I posted a link over there you'd rather ignore, explaining how said sculpture made no appearance at Obama's fundraiser at all, proving your continued insistence that there is anything resembling a story here has nothing to do with facts and everything to do with irrational, unsupported hatred.

Eh, there's no reasoning with the resident poop spewers.

"Here's the evidence that proves you were wrong."

"I see your evidence, and I choose to ignore it. That proves I was NOT wrong. Ha!"

Luckily, the worst offenders have elevated unlikeability to a high art, so I doubt they have much influence on anyone.
