NY Post: 2014, The Year Of The Liberal Lie
Of course, every year is the year of the Liberal Lie, because, let’s face it, liberals must lie to get people to believe them. Some years are just worse than others
(NY Post) Bowe Bergdahl. The IRS’s missing e-mails. Lena Dunham. “Hands up, don’t shoot.” Jonathan Gruber. GM and that faulty ignition switch. Andrew Cuomo and that anti-corruption commission. The Secret Service and that White House intruder. Rachel Noerdlinger and her “disabled” son. Rolling Stone and gang rape.
2014 was the year when truth was optional. 2014 was the year when convenient fabrication was the weapon of choice for celebrities, activists, big business and politicians. 2014 was the Year of the Lie.
In each case, the liars used their powerful positions to intimidate, harass, marginalize or just plain bilk ordinary people who lacked access to a megaphone with which to shout back.
Mostly the liars didn’t suffer any repercussions for spreading falsehoods, and most didn’t even seem particularly embarrassed when they were exposed.
Liberals are rarely embarrassed by their lies. They often shift their lies to “fake but accurate”, when they aren’t ignoring that the fact that they are lying. Like with “climate change”
Activists told us Michael Brown, who was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9, was a “gentle giant” who had his hands in the air and was running away when he was shot.
Video images later showed that he had robbed a convenience store shortly before the police confrontation. Then an autopsy report confirmed that Brown was so close to Officer Darren Wilson that he had gunpowder residue on his hand, and that all of the bullets that hit him came from the front, none from the back. Nor where Brown’s palms raised, according to analysis by forensic pathologist Dr. Judy Melinek.
Protesters shrugged at all of this, declaring they would continue to honor Brown’s memory by chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot.”
“Even if you don’t find that it’s true, it’s a valid rallying cry,” Ferguson protester Taylor Gruenloh told The Associated Press. If a few black-owned businesses get destroyed, and others are forced out of business by rising insurance costs, who cares? At least the protesters feel righteous.
The article goes on to discuss Lena Dunham, the UVA rape story, ex-chief of staff to the first lady of New York City, Rachel Noerdlinger (you’ll have to read the article for the full 411), GM and their ignition switch issue, BY Gov. Cuomo pulling the plug on an investigation, Jonathan Gruber, and, of course, the IRS
Where on earth could all of these people have gotten the idea that lying is acceptable? Maybe they’re all just marching to the cadence of the Liar in Chief.
Yes, then we get into all of Obama’s lies. And there are quite a few. Which is, quite frankly, expected. It’s one of the main things Obama does.
