Wingnut Wrapup

Today's Wingnut Wrapup is dedicated to Jim "Dim Bulb" Hoft, widely recognized as the Dumbest Man on the Internet, and also a perpetual finalist for the most dishonest too.  Here's Jim's contribution to the Ferguson situation:

This is an x-ray showing an injury called a "blowout fracture" of the eye socket.  Hoft published this photo on Tuesday, being very clear to imply that this was an actual x-ray of injuries sustained by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, in the course of killing Michael Brown.

But wait! There are two pictures shown here.  The one on your left is what Hoft originally ran with, before notiicing that, in the lower right hand corner, it said "University of Iowa."  An hour later, he switched to the second picture, in which you can see that the phrase "University of Iowa" has been crudely blotted out.  The original x-ray can, in fact, be found at a number of medical websites explaining this condition, and has nothing to do with Officer Wilson, any more than anything Jim Hoft says has anything to do with reality.

For your information, here is a photo I found of a person suffering from this injury:
Pretty distressing, huh? Photos of Officer Wilson walking around the dead body of Michael Brown show no injuries of any kind.  Despite this, Hoft keeps coming up with unnamed (but of course totally trustworthy) sources that confirm that Officer Wilson was injured- at last count he was up to six, all unidentified.

CNN has confirmed, by the way, that no such injury occurred. Here's more about this nasty story from someone you can trust, if you care.

So, what is the result of this sort of lying, race baiting smear?  Of course it was picked up without question by the Drudge Report, and has now been featured on the Conservative Tribune, Washington Post, right wing news, New York Post, Opposing Views, New York Daily News, Legalinsurrection, Fox News (of course), Red State, Free Republic, Breitbart. Lucianne Goldberg's website, and on and on.  Hoft's original post has over 8,000 comments.

And that's how the right wing works.  Well, on with the rest of Wingnut Wrapup:

Ransom Notes Radio:  "Democrats Commit Child Abuse on Southern Border"

It being a clear case of child abuse to try to take care of them, whereas it is an example of responsible adult behavior to send them back home to little more than war zones, which our "war on drugs" and our sponsorship of Central American dictatorships is largely responsible for creating.  Any Republican knows that.

Larry Kudlow, Town Hall:  "Secular Stagnation Is a Cover Up; Failed Keynesian Policies Have Blocked Growth"

If we just repeat this lie for enough decades, it will magically become true!  -A helpful suggestion brought to you by one of the Kings of Being Always Wrong.

Michael Schaus, Town Hall:  "Blame the Racism-of-Liberals for Ferguson, Missouri... If liberals truly cared about the plight of today’s black community, they wouldn’t be “standing in solidarity” with hustlers of victimhood."

"Hustlers of victimhood" in this case being those who don't think white policemen should be allowed to murder black people without the fear of consequences.   There is so much from this miserable article I could quote, but let's leave it with one more excerpt:

"The truth is, this story isn’t really about racism, police brutality, or even tragedy… This story is about the failure of Liberalism."

Sure it is.  Sure it's about the failure of liberalism.  It's certainly about the failure of liberalism to turn one Missouri cop into a decent human being.

Michelle Malkin, Town Hall:  "Meet the Cops Who Gave Their Lives...If you've been watching cable news, reading Hollywood celebrities' tweets and listening to race-hustling opportunists, you might think that every police officer in America has a finger on the trigger, hunting for any excuse to gun down defenseless youths."

This article makes the very cogent point that, since police behave themselves some of the time, they should have the right to gun down a black guy every once in a while.  I mean, who could argue with that?  Fair is fair- no one gets it all their own way.

Katie Pavlich, Town Hall:  "Hundreds More Criminal Illegal Aliens With Brutal Records Released Onto American Streets"

Maybe they could get jobs with the Ferguson, Mo. police department.

Kevin Fobbs, Renew America:  "Riot, rage, rampage and rebellion - Obama's legacy on fire in America!  Ferguson protesters claim that this was the match that lit the fuse for this summer's riotous rampage.  This is not civil rights but out of control criminal conduct."

You know, some times it's hard to make fun of malicious claims like this, particularly when they come from a black man like Kevin, who accepts his thirty pieces of silver to tell lies like this.  A white cop murders a black teenager- of course it's Obama's fault.  Everything is.

John Ransom, Town Hall:  "What if we had a president who has some gonads and some sense of proportion?"

Yeah, like George W. Bush, right?  That worked out great.  Here is this infantile warmonger's solution to the Ukraine situation:

"What would I do now? 

I’d commit a division of troops, say the Third Infantry Division, to the parts of Ukraine not currently involved in the fighting. I’d speed up war material and aid to Ukraine including training in counter-insurgency operations. I would order the shootdown of the next Russian military aircraft that “accidently” penetrates into US airspace probing our North American defenses."

And how about when Russia sent a division of troops to Cuba or Mexico?  What would you do then?  And when Russians shot down a couple of our planes?  Having sent our troops to the Ukraine for something that didn't affect us at all, what would be your response then?  Wouldn't you have to use those troops?

John Ransom's answer to Russian attacks on the Ukraine?  Start World War III.  I'll stick with Obama.

But this jackass isn't done yet:

"If I had a million dollars I'd pay a million dollars tomorrow for a reporter to ask Obama if he even still has a set of balls."

Adult policy discussion at its finest.

Repair Man Jack, Red State:  "Citizens, Looters, and The Police – Why We Need The 2nd Amendment"

Because if the police won't shoot the n*****s when they have the chance, we'll just have to do it ourselves.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "BLACK PANTHERS Lead Massive March in Ferguson"

BLACK PANTHERS!!!!  Both of them!  Run for the hills!!!  Really, two of them!  Out of their current membership of about eight.  Oh my God, our country is defeated!

Clarice Feldman, American Thinker:  "Ferguson, Missouri, to Gaza, Damascus and Sinjar...In the Middle East, Hamas and ISIS share much with the rioters in Missouri."

Yeah, that's the ticket.  Murderous religious savages who have brutally killed thousands are just the same as American blacks who are protesting one of their own being murdered.

Of course, it's all Obama's fault.  And the fault of the culture of violence among Black people which obviously is the cause of a black teenager being shot in the back by a white policeman.  Face it, the wronger white right wingers prove to be about everything, the more they are going to angrily defend their sickening beliefs, because all the brown people in the world dying is not as bad as one white cracker being forced to admit to himself that he has been suckered into being an evil little prick.

Lloyd Marcus, American Thinker:  "Once again, Sarah Palin has proven herself to be a true leader, a powerful voice, and a consistent advocate for We The People"

The stupid, it burns.  Lloyd continues to quote Mahatma Gandhi, a well known Republican pundit:

"Gandhi said, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

In your case, Lloyd, it never gets beyond the laughing.  After all the years you've been carrying the White Man's baggage, you'd think you would start to figure that out.

Bob Barr, Town Hall:  "Have We learned Nothing in the 23 Years Since the Rodney King Riots?"

Apparently not very much.  If by "we," you mean white racists, Bob.  On the other hand, everyone else has learned a lot.  It used to take a city of 10,000,000 to produce what happened in Ferguson, population 21,000.  Think about that, and think about all of the people in this country that have reached the end of their tolerance for people like you.  Think hard enough and maybe you will learn something too.  If not, don't worry. A couple of more situations like Ferguson, and they will teach it to you for free.

Cortney O'brien, Town Hall:  "Unbiased: 'SNL' Team Calls Sarah Palin 'Ridiculous'

Imagine that!

Jack Cashill, American Thinker:  "Trayvon's Death Taught Liberals Nothing"

And what was it supposed to have taught us?  That black teenagers are drug-addled thugs that are fair game for white people to gun down any time they want?  I couldn't even read all of this article, but believe me, the gist of it was that the two teenage black kids murdered deserved their fate, because they were walking around where a white guy with a gun didn't want them to be.  End of story.

Russ Vaughn, American Thinker:  "Just what is an unarmed man?  I’m a white man who many decades ago was a military policeman – one who had frequent encounters with unarmed young black soldiers who all too frequently vigorously resisted arrest.  Except that they weren’t unarmed for the simple reason that they were young and strong and possessed quick fighting reflexes honed on the hard streets where they were raised. "

See?  They were armed with their black skin!  That's a deadly weapon, so they don't count as unarmed, and therefore white guys have a perfect right to kill them.  I guess you pantywaist liberals never thought of that, huh?

Deborah C. Tyler, American Thinker:  "Obama's Rage"

This is an a article about one of the rarest commodities on earth, something on the order of those trans-uranium atoms that, if they exist at all, apparently only exist for millionths of a second before disappearing- something that no one has ever seen in real life.  Man, if someone could only get hold of a couple drops of Obama rage, they'd be as rich as the Koch brothers.

Bryan Fischer, Renew America:  "High school senior Kendra Turner was suspended for saying "Bless you" when a fellow student sneezed in class. Not for saying "God bless you," mind you, but simply "Bless you."  Her enraged teacher aggressively informed her that there would be "no godly speaking" in her classroom and sent her to the assistant principal's office when Kendra took her stand on the Constitution. You know, the document that talks about our right to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion."

I'm sure you can spot a wingnut tall tale by now, particularly when it comes from Bryan Fischer, America's chief Liar for God.  No, of course this didn't really happen this way.  And no, she wasn't suspended.  She was sent to the Principal's office when she wouldn't stop babbling away about her religion in class, creating a disruption.  That's the end of the story, except in wingnut word, where it will never die, and will probably soon morph into a tale in which the teacher and principal had her sent over to ISIS to be crucified.

Dan Popp, Renew America:  "What does "militarization of the police" mean?"

Dan does not seem to be able to figure this out, so I thought I would help him with these pictures:

Police, 1950:


Police today:


There, Dan.  Did that help you out?

Well, let's just go out with the one person who belongs at the bottom of anyone's pile of garbage:

Jonah Goldberg, Town Hall:  "Does the president think the world is a TV show?"

No. If it was, it would have been cancelled a long time ago.

RE: The Black Panther thing.

Reminds me of an old, old joke whose punch line is, "Sir! Sir! It's a trap! There're two of them!"

Quite a quotable post overall. We'll done.

Just because I don't have time to post very often, don't think you are not being appreciated. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the compliments. I appreciate them very much. Weird Dave, what it reminded me of was the W. C. Fields line "Yeah, but she had another woman with her."
