I hear so much from the right-wing talking heads about patriotism and truth-telling these days that it hurts my brain. I respect differences of opinion so long as no one is hurt, killed, or lies aren't handed out like bad checks. But there are times that the bullshit gets so deep, and the truth so stretched, you have to say something about it.
Take Sean Hannity, for example - the biggest liar Fix News has to offer. Sean's a lonely little man that can't help but attack the current president while fellating the former president every chance he gets. Sean banks his success on the hope that his audience is too stupid to do any real research that proves him wrong. As if attacking the president for recently ordering a cheeseburger with brown mustard wasn't lame enough, he continues to label Obama as a 9/11 sympathizer and a Muslim. There's no proof that Obama is any of this, but does Sean let that stop him? Hell no!
In the clip below, Sean attacks the president by claiming he "decided to give 9-11 sympathizers a voice on the world stage."
No, Sean, he didn't...
"He went on to imply to the foreign audience in Cairo that the U.S. is a nation that tortures."
Sadly, Sean, we do...
"Iraq was a war of choice."
It was a war of choice, Sean. Even the former veep finally admitted to this.
Watch Sean lie his arse off in the clip below. Hit play:
What the little coward isn't tell you is the rest of Obama's speech:
"The situation in Afghanistan demonstrates America's goals, and our need to work together. Over seven years ago, the United States pursued al Qaeda and the Taliban with broad international support. We did not go by choice; we went because of necessity. I'm aware that there's still some who would question or even justify the events of 9/11. But let us be clear: Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet al Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. They have affiliates in many countries and are trying to expand their reach. These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with."So where is the outrage from the right regarding Sean's lying, trashing of public schools, falsely claiming that Obama said we're a Muslim nation, and petty bickering about choice of mustard? Right-wingers, why you continue to get your news from a liar and racist who says to love our military (he really doesn't) but never set foot in it is beyond me. Listen - you can't have it both ways. Either you're honest or you're not. Either you call a spade a spade or you don't. I might disagree with a lot of your politics, but please - when is enough enough? When will you stop playing politics and join the rest of humanity?
Tell me, Sean - what part of lying makes you a great American? By the way, we're still waiting to watch you get waterboarded.
