Yeah, I am taking the cure and keeping away from wasting my time on wingnuts, but this one is just too good to pass up. It's from the unbelievably inappropriately named "American Thinker." It is a perfect example of two characteristics that seem to inevitably be associated with the right: An absolutely pathological ability to lie about even the clearest things on earth, and a really sick inability to face any responsibility for the consequences of their behavior. Here goes:
"In a recent CNN interview, the former commander-in-chief (That's Bill Clinton to the rest of us- GE) sounded a battle cry to the political left, press and pundits alike: Vilify the Tea Party, deeming its membership capable of the violent rampage of the Oklahoma City bomber. This stigma imperils the most influential grassroots movement in modern history. Nothing threatens to muzzle free speech more than being stereotyped a "Tim McVeigh wanna-be."
Then stop being Tim McVeigh wanna-be's. And, "the most influential grassroots movement in modern history. "- don't make me laugh. How about the Nazis or the Italian fascists? How about the secular Arab uprising under Nasser? My god, how about the Hippies? Compared to your pathetic bunch of manipulated, ignorant suckers, even the Hippies were giants.
"What I discovered shatters the Tim McVeigh mold as an "angry white male" who...crossed the threshold from peaceful discontent to wholesale mass murder. Instead, copiously researched evidence, as outlined in my book The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing, exposes McVeigh as the ultimate traitor, acting in collusion with al-Qaeda terrorists and hostile foreign governments such as Iran and Iraq. "
Oh, grow up, you sick asshole. Tim McVeigh was absolutely "an angry white male who...crossed the threshold from peaceful discontent to wholesale mass murder. " That's what he was. The evidence is overwhelming. But no, it's the Muslims' fault. Is there any tragedy in our history that you won't mangle with your lies, in order to hide from your responsibility for the hatred and violence you have unleashed?*
Even your idiot president and vice president, who were willing to tell any lie they could think of about Iran and Iraq to justify their aggression, never tried to tell that one. And when a lie is too big for Dick Cheney to tell, you know you have gone off the deep edge.
"Demented pride impelled the American terrorist to fire off letters to the press following my appearances on cable news programs. His ire inflamed as I announced to a nationwide audience that Osama bin Laden, Iraq, and Iran sponsored the Oklahoma City operation. My investigation demeaned the Army sergeant's status and relegated his role to that of a mule, or rather, a button-pusher. In the lexicon of the intelligence community, Timothy McVeigh was nothing more than a "lily-white" delivery boy"
Oh, I see. Demented pride. The truth was exactly the opposite not only of everything in Tim McVeigh's right wing history and his own statements, but of every piece of evidence turned up, but of course, you know better. It wasn't demented when he killed 160 innocent people, apparently. No, that was part of a carefully worked out Muslim plot. But McVeigh then became demented, as reflected in the fact that he won't admit that Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were behind his act, not good old fashioned American right wing hatred, and the lack of self control that traditionally accompanies those things.
"To this day, the FBI has failed to investigate the multiple sightings of Iraqi Republican Guardsman Hussain Al-Hussaini in the presence of Timothy McVeigh prior to the bombing, exiting the bomb-laden Ryder truck the morning of April 19, and escaping the ill-fated Murrah Building in a getaway vehicle pursued by the FBI in an all-points-bulletin issued for Middle Eastern terrorists. "
Sure. They have also failed to investigate the multiple appearances of Santa Claus ringing a bell on the streets of Oklahoma city the very December before the bombing! And that actually happened, instead of being a figment of your sick imagination.
"The time has arrived to exorcise the ghosts of Oklahoma City and bring to account the Arab terrorists who butchered innocent Americans and the officials who suppressed the evidence of their guilt."
Because the American right is perfect and moral and religious and this is the greatest country in the history of the world, and they love their country, except when it comes to paying to keep it afloat, or letting people who are not white have any part in it other than as gardeners and dishwashers. So, how could they be responsible for ANYTHING BAD EVER!!!!! So, the time has come. The time has come to tell another ugly, racist, hatemongering right wing lie. No news there, though. That time comes every day.
*The answer is no, in case you wondered.
