We’ve had some recent events which demonstrate a pathology of the left. They lie. Worse, they lie with an intention to besmear people and groups of people who resist their ideology.
Now, don’t get me wrong. There’s not a person on earth who hasn’t departed from the truth. People lie for many reasons…… to make themselves look good, to try to stay out of trouble, to profit from or scam people, etc….. However, the form of lying the left engages in, in a serial and pathological fashion is a bit more insidious than the reasons I listed. If there ever was such a thing as a hate crime, this would be it. They lie to vilify their ideological opponents.
We’ve again have had recent events which demonstrate this.
Recently there was a big hubbub at the University of Wyoming.
The kerfuffle began on April 24 when an anonymous posting was made to a Facebook page called UW Crushes. The page, which has since been removed from Facebook, was a forum for students to confess their desires for each other in secret.
In it, there was this post……
“I want to hatef*ck Meg Lanker Simons so hard. That chick runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its so hot and makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican b*tch.”
As you can imagine, this being on a university FB page and all, that the response was swift! As all good university students do, because they’re too insecure about their own thoughts, they held a rally!
A rally in support of Lanker-Simons ensued with signs declaring that “rape threats are not a joke” and the like. Lanker-Simons spoke at the event and denounced the anonymous UW Crushes poster, according to local radio station KOWB.
One rally organizer, Amy Pauli, alleged that some kind of menacing “rape culture” plagues the University of Wyoming campus.
“It’s not just about the page. It’s about the way rape culture becomes fostered among students,” Paul told KOWB.
Megan Selheim, who is employed by the University of Wyoming as a STOP Violence Coordinator, egged on the protesters.
“I think sometimes we feel when we challenge rape culture, when we feel like we’ve been targeted, we feel alone and feel like we’re in the minority,” she said
And on and on it went. But, guess what? Police investigated!
Police investigated the incident. By Monday, they had collected “substantial evidence” and determined that the posting was a hoax perpetrated by Lanker-Simons on her personal computer while it was in her possession.
Of course this isn’t an isolated incident. And when leftist lunatics aren’t hoaxing bs to fool the media, the media just makes crap up.
The most serial offender has to be MSNBC. And they got caught again. It was an odd one this time. Apparently the administration isn’t pushing the gun agenda hard or fast enough for MSNBC. So what did they do?
Friday MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts used selective clips from a speech by Vice President Joe Biden to make it look as though Biden was making a push for gun control. Biden’s speech had nothing to do with guns.
The speech was commemorating the four dead from Benghazi. MSNBC is so serially dishonest that they couldn’t even rerun one of Biden’s clips which pushes gun control.
Of course, climate warriors would be very familiar with this nonsense. The most recent example is a discredited paper written by Lewandowsky and John Cook. That paper will probably go down in the annals of history along side that nutter in Europe who wrote all of those invented papers, the one where trash make people racist and dozens of others. Lewdy and Cook did just as bad. They lied about the experiments, made up numbers, and drew their conclusions to fit their world view.
These aren’t new events. Idiotic citizens making crap up that gets seized by an uncritical media to advance their world view is all to familiar.
We remember Stripper Gate: Duke LaCrosse Case. That’s Noose to Me: The Plagiarizing Prof Cries Racism, that’s where Professor Madonna Constantine supposedly found a noose on her office door, which she put there. And who could forget Tawana Brawley
Of course no one could forget the case the helped Rev. Al Sharpton make his bones, in which 15 year-old Tawana Brawley was allegedly raped, smeared with feces and covered with racist slogans. [All a hoax] Chicago native Alicia Hardin, 19, an African American woman, was charged with a hate crime and disorderly conduct after confessing to sending three letters that contained racial slurs and threats against minority students at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois.
And the list goes on. But, as I said, when citizens aren’t making stuff up, the media will just manufacture lies, and then report them as truth.
Here’s just a few more examples from NBC…….
1. During last year’s presidential election, Andrea Mitchell was caught manufacturing a Romney gaffe where none existed.
2. During last year’s GOP primary, Ed Schultz edited video of Texas Governor Rick Perry to make him look racist.
3. In April of last year, the “Today Show” was caught editing audio of a 9-1-1 call to make George Zimmerman look racist.
4. In August of 2009, Contessa Brewer sliced and diced a photograph so it wouldn’t look like a black man attended a Tea Party carrying a firearm.
5. Just this week, NBC News maliciously edited video of a town council meeting to make it look as though Second Amendment civil rights activists heckled a parent who lost his son in Newtown.
As far as the climate lies, well, I can’t even begin to list all of them. Again, everyone has lied at some point in their life. But, what we’re seeing here is a pathology. And it presents itself with leftists. It occurs when reality doesn’t match their world view. It’s a form of immaturity, dishonesty, and intellectual vacancy, all rolled into one. And that, my friends, is the definition of a leftist.
