Heads up! Newest manufactured Right Wing scandal.
OK Folks. Heads up (in case you hadn't heard) about the newest B.S. scandal being manufactured by the right.
Right wing sites have posted dozens of articles claiming Obama is calling for an end to Catholic schools or that he is attacking religion or that he wants to end religious schools around the world. You name it. They are claiming it.
Here's the quote from Obama they cite as evidence.
"If towns remain divided – if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can't see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden – that too encourages division and discourages cooperation."
The President was speaking about keeping a lasting peace between religious sects in Ireland and he was promoting the idea, already begun in some parts, to desegregate the schools, NOT end them.
Here's a legitimate news article with which to combat the right wing zombies. They won't give a crap anyway, but hey, at least you will be armed with the truth.
