I can’t even.
Good to know that Fox News, Michelle Malkin, Dana Loesch (good job CNN!) and the rest of the denizens of Wingnutopia are getting their news from a bunch of neo-Nazis:
Over the weekend, a picture began circulating that claimed to show Martin in a less-than-flattering light: shirtless, sagging pants, and giving the finger to the camera.
The image quickly circulated across blogs and websites, with many claiming it as evidence that Martin was not as innocent as family and supporters claimed, as well as alleging media bias.
There is one problem to that claim: the picture is not Trayvon Martin.
(read the rest)
As I pointed out on Saturday, these images are coming straight from the Breitbrats via Stormfront.
People don’t kill people; hoodies kill people.
Well, this is a new twist on victim blaming. Usually we’re busy telling women not to wear such short skirts, or not to get too drunk lest they get raped. Now, apparently, we’re telling black and Latino youth not to wear hooded sweatshirts because it might-could get you shot in the chest by some lunatic vigilante who has a problem with those “assholes” who “always get away”:
GERALDO RIVERA: Well, I have a different take, Brian, on that. I believe that George Zimmerman, the overzealous neighborhood watch captain should be investigated to the fullest extent of the law and if he is criminally liable, he should be prosecuted. But I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.
History is rewritten by the winners.
Here’s a serious question for the assemblage: If President Obama’s record is so awful, why are the Republicans so eager to rewrite the history of what he’s accomplished? Greg Sargent:
Keep an eye on this one, too, because it will also be central to GOP efforts to rewrite the history of the Obama presidency.
In his big Wall Street Journal Op ed piece today attacking Obama’s campaign documentary and minimizing the magnitude of the economic crisis Obama inherited, Karl Rove also claims the killing of Osama Bin Laden was no big deal.
Yeah, stop for a sec. Rewind. Play back. The crisis was minimal, so it was really President Obama’s unnecessary efforts at government intervention that “created” the financial crisis and ramped up unemployment. And as far as our late former Saudi ally is concerned, well Big Dog would have made that call too, Rove says. How can this President possibly take any credit for that?
Dana Loesch is brain-deficient.
Dana Loesch, who is valiantly trying (and failing) to carry Breitbart’s torch, has done some digging into Sandra Fluke’s personal life because of course she has.
Loesch, after discovering that Fluke’s boyfriend is the son of an “entrenched Democrat,” and that Fluke and her boyfriend are currently on vacation in California, concludes that Fluke’s boyfriend should be paying for Fluke’s contraception. After all, it’s unfathomable that Fluke can’t fund her own sluttiness when she has a “Democrat” boyfriend and enough money to make the harrowing journey from one coast to the other.
Yes, really. Dana Loesch is that stupid.
Why is Dana Loesch on CNN? Her idiocy is much better suited for Fox News. Why doesn’t CNN bid her adieu? For an organization that is supposed to be a news network [insert derisive snort], CNN is not doing itself any favors by continuing to allow such a mental incompetent and pathological liar to further pollute its brand (such as it is.)
Stupid and sexist: That’s the Fox way.
UPDATE: Here’s what Fluke actually said:
Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, and the rest of the fail-clowns on the right are currently creaming their twinkies over video footage so shocking, that it very well might have been the cause of Andrew Breitbart’s untimely death.
In the video, a young President Obama (at the time, he was president of the Harvard Law Review) is speaking at a Harvard protest rally in support of then law school Professor Derrick Bell’s call for more diversity among Harvard faculty.
The big reveal (which Breitbart touted at CPAC as signaling the death knell for President Obama’s re-election chances) is that at the end of the video — you should probably sit down for this — BARACK OBAMA HUGS DERRICK BELL.
BLACK MEN HUGGING? The hell you say!
The nutbags on the right are losing their collective shit because they believe that The Forbidden Hug was hidden from the American public because JEREMIAH WRIGHT AND GODDAMN AMERICA AND ALSO, TOO BILL AYERS:
Rick Santorum recently told Fox “News” host Greta Van Susteren that “The president was willing to jump in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya and in Egypt….”
It’s true. President Obama actually was wrestling around between the sheets with the M.U.S.L.I.M. B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. long before he officially took office.
But who cares? What’s so bad about the “Moral, Unwaveringly Sane, Liberty-Inclined ‘Mericans who Believe Russia Offers Traitorous Hicks an Ominous Oasis away from Democracy”?
It’s not some evil socialist Kenyan Muslim thing. It’s a self-deportation program made specifically for negro-fearing bigots like Santorum.
He should Google it.
Oops! Here we go again…
And now we know.
Rising Republican star and well-known border hawk Sheriff Paul Babeu, who’s now running for Congress in Arizona, was hit Friday night with bombshell accusations from a Mexican immigrant who said he dated the sheriff for years and was threatened with deportation if he ever told anyone about their romance.
The Phoenix New Times newspaper broke the story on its website in a piece written by veteran journalist Monica Alonzo. The accusations came complete with text messages said to be between the two men as well as compromising photos purportedly of Babeu that are reminiscent of recent sex scandals that ended the careers of Congressmen Anthony Weiner and Chris Lee.

In keeping with the alternate reality created by Fox News and perpetuated by its minions like Rush Limbaugh, the anchors at Fox News are questioning the recent uptick in the number of jobs created in the private sector. They are pushing the idea that the books have been “cooked.” It is really astounding how obvious they are in their attempts to keep their alternate reality propped up. Alex Seitz-Wald at ThinkProgress spells it out pretty clearly.
If it weren’t improper to psychologically analyse strangers, one might think the Fox hosts are displaying a textbook example of cognitive dissonance here, a psychological phenomena in which people who hold a strong belief about something invent (sometimes far fetched) explanations for new evidence that conflicts with their existing views. Obama is bad for the economy, the jobs numbers show the economy is doing better, so there must be something wrong with the jobs numbers.
