3. <u>Obama is a Muslim/Socialist/Fascist.</u> Glenn Beck’s fantasy of the week -- one week Obama was a Socialist, the next he was a Communist, then a Fascist. Then it was on to Marxism and Maoism --

4. <u>Obama is going to take away our guns.</u> Well, the NRA managed to scare a whole lot of people into buying up every gun and piece of ammunition in sight the first year or so after Obama’s election.

5. <u>Obama is raising our taxes. </u>Reality: Obama lowered taxes for 95 percent of working Americans in his first year in office. But, you know, he’s a liberal Democrat – and for true-blue right-wing folks, that ALWAYS means a tax hike.

6. <u>Fascism is a left-wing phenomenon.</u> We can thank Jonah Goldberg -- with a big assist from Beck -- for the popularity of this one, even though Goldberg’s thesis has been demolished and angrily dismissed by academic historians. .

7. <u>Global warming is a hoax.</u> So Sean Hannity assures us, citing the Climategate brouhaha -- which was itself shown largely to be a hoax of its own. Meanwhile, the world’s ocean levels keep rising, and glaciers and the polar ice cap keep receding -- regardless of the endless words thrown up denying that they are.

8. Some 16,000 new IRS agents will enforce the new health care reform act<u> by throwing you in jail.</u>

9. <u>Two million people were at the 9/12 March on Washington.</u>


10. <span style='font-size: 20pt'>The Tea Parties are a <u>non-partisan, broad grassroots movement.</u> Sure, if by non-partisan you mean rabidly paleo-conservative, to the point of even dismissing Republicans, and by grassroots you mean fake populism organized and whipped up by the most popular cable-news network on television, with a heaping helping of corporate financing.</span> </div></div>


........and Glenn Beck is their hero. LOL

The fact that the majority of those are demonstrably true is an embarrassment to you ... other than you aren't capable of embarrassment when it comes to your Pavlovian defense of dearest leader and the party.

As was revealed in the book, What's The Matter With Kansas we have a segment of Americans who are so dumb, that they vote against their own best interests.

Blind followers, on the Fux Noise Kool Aid train.

They think they can create their own reality, by simply continuing to lie.

The list proves the vast vacancy between their ears. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif
