Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Fake, phony, fraud

Treacher does a little comparing and contrasting:

Back in 2003, the left was astonished and dismayed that George W. Bush got such a warm Thanksgiving welcome from our troops in Iraq, even after he was evil enough to send our troops to Iraq. So what did our friends on the port side do? Oh, the usual: They concocted a controversy out of whole cloth.

“Hey, that Thanksgiving turkey Bush was carrying looked pretty fake. Wait a second, I know… It was plastic! What a perfect metaphor for this whole fake war! Plastic turkey, plastic president. Am I right, people?”

They weren’t right. They didn’t even bother to find out if they were. But that didn’t stop this weird, fact-free, too-good-to-check meme from oozing through the Internet until it finally dripped onto the desks of our finest bastion of journalistic certitude, the New York Times.

The NYT ws eventually forced to issue a retraction of the fake-turkey lie, but, as Jim points out, that hardly stopped them from subsequently bringing it up here and there anyway, proving for all time that for liberal-media liars, The Narrative trumps the truth every single time.

So what do you suppose those ever-vigilant adversary “journalists” at the Times and elsewhere will make of this, then?

Nevertheless, about that “surprise visit”.

It wasn’t. The visit was communicated a full 24 hours in advance and a small contingent of soldiers – not screaming hoards – were rustled into a meeting place at Camp Victory.

Got this email from a sergeant that was there.

“We were pre-screened, asked by officials “Who voted for Obama?”, and then those who raised their hands were shuffled to the front of the receiving line. They even handed out digital cameras and asked them to hold them up.”

Take a look at the picture at AP and notice all the cameras are the same models? Coincidence? I think not.

Of course it wasn’t. It was a sham, a propaganda set-piece. As to what the NYT and other Obamedia outlets will make of it: not one damned thing. They’re working hand in glove with the Obama junta, always have been, and always will be. Not a peep from the nutjob-o-sphere that worked itself into a foaming rage over Plastic Turkeygate, either, which should come as no surprise. Plenty more on the fraud here and here.

  1. While I find it entirely plausible, and even likely, that the troops were pre-screened, I took a look at the picture and they are most definitely not all the same model of digital camera. Unless, that is, he’s referring to a different picture, or the picture was doctored. Or they just handed them out to those who didn’t already have their own.
