Here is an all too typical example of the utter indifference to common decency which characterizes the right in this country. Consider the following rather distasteful photo:
Now, remember that, though Breitbart has established an extensive record of spreading false, malignant smears against Democrats and pro-Democratic organizations, he is still regarded as an acceptable news source by Fox, CNN and others in the mainstream media.
By this morning, two days later, it had been determined that the above photo had neither been sent by Congressman Weiner, nor received by the girl in question. In other words, it is a blatant forgery, by a well-known forger.
Nevertheless, this story was picked up and spread through the right wing world with lightning speed. Here are a few of the wingnut websites, some of them among the most read online sites in existence, which reported it as proven fact:
World Net Daily
Freak Out Nation
Angry White Dude
And believe me, I could go on and on- I'd had enough by this point. So this thoroughly sickening story has now been spread throughout the right wing world, and will remain an established fact among Republicans, like the death panels, the fact that Obama is a Muslim, and a thousand other such smears. And you know perfectly well that not one of these websites will have the decency to admit that they were wrong or publish one word setting the record straight.
And by the way...the totally innocent girl who is a victim of this smear? She has been subjected to a vicious campaign of abuse and threats by anonymous right wingers online.
Your Republican party at work.
