Awash in a Sea of Progressive Lies

These past few days have been incredible, literally incredible. We have been subjected to a concentrated barrage, nay, a flood, a tsunami, hell, an ocean of progressive lies. Really quite remarkable.

So many lies, so hard to know where to start (Note: I am having trouble with the LINK function, so this will be a no-footnote rant--but the material on which it is based is not hard to find).

Let me start with Michael Brown. The evidence presented the grand jury has been released. How can any rational human being read that stuff and not conclude that the policeman, Darren Wilson, was plainly within his rights to use lethal force against the rampaging giant thug Brown? The whole story of "hands up" was as false as false can be. Made up. It, however, fit the endless movie loop running in the heads of the progressive mountebanks who dominate our media and entertainment industries, and fit in nicely with the narrative of the race hustlers and corruptocrats who comprise this misadministration in Washington. The truth doesn't matter. It could have been true, and besides, we all know this happens all the time and is not reported, so what if it didn't happen this time? The innocent citizens brutalized and ruined by rampaging Democrat incited lynch mobs? Well, they are the collateral damage produced by an unjust society. Next time, officer Wilson should let himself be killed for the greater good. The lie serves the truth, don't you know?

Then we go to the University of Virginia gang rape case. Rolling Stone ran a lurid and detailed account of a gang rape on the UVa campus carried out by a gaggle of good ol' frat boys in keeping with a long-established initiation ritual which had been kept secret for decades. Right. Unfortunately for the progressives, the new media is not in the grips of those progressives, not yet, and a thousand beams of light were cast on this horrid little tale, and guess what? The story is not true. In the meanwhile, however, the politically correct authorities at UVa had shut down the fraternities and a hunt was on for the horrid frat boys who had committed this horrid crime. The story is not true? Oh, but that doesn't matter, you see, because rape is rampant on US campuses, and greatly under-reported, so the truth in this instance does not matter, because it could have happened, and it provides a teaching moment for reflexion. (How do we know rape is rampant and under-reported? Well, uh . . . You hate the victims!)  The suspension of due process, the smearing of dozens of innocent men, and whole organizations? Well, that is just the collateral damage produced by an unjust society, you see. It is all for the greater good. The lie serves the truth, don't you know?

Onward we go to the absurd actress Lena Dunham who has long been held up as a role model for progressive girls and women: This age's Amelia Earhardt, Marie Curie, Mary Shelly! Ok, so she's an admitted pedophile and practitioner of incest, but isn't she so daring in revealing her innermost thoughts and dark secrets? OK, she, too, claimed to have been raped, this time by a Republican (nice touch, that) named Barry while she was at Oberlin. How brave of her to come forward! I am woman, I am strong! Oops . . . the story is not true? The Barry who was at Oberlin is putting together a lawsuit? Well, the story could have been true. So what if it didn't happen this time? Suspension of due process? The smearing of an innocent man? Collateral damage produced by an unjust society. All for the greater good. The lie serves the truth, don't you know?

It goes on and on.

We see the outgoing Democratic Chairman of the Senate Intel Committee, the absurd Diane Feinstein, release an wildly inaccurate report on CIA "torture." Blame Bush! Can't get enough of that! A report drafted exclusively by left-wing Democratic staffers, who never bothered to interview anybody, or acknowledge that the Democratic Congress was briefed on all of this years ago, is hailed as a "bomb shell"! It rehashes old and discredited stories of the suffering by the poor AQ terrorists at the hands of the CIA and friendly services. My heart bleeds for them, I tell you. The same Senate that seems eager to denigrate those who did the tough job of protecting our country, is not at all interested in investigating the outrageous Fast and Furious scandal which saw hundreds of Mexicans and at least two US federal agents killed by guns deliberately supplied by the Obama DOJ to the drug cartels in furtherance of the anti-second amendment narrative. Mexican lives matter! Well,  only if they are on this side of the border and voting Democrat. The lie serves the truth . . .

The Feinstein report, of course, got released at the same time that the Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was getting grilled by the House, especially by the remarkable Trey Gowdy. Gruber is a liar who participated in one of the great lies of our time, Obamacare, which is bringing economic devastation to millions all in the name of helping millions. So what if the premises of Obamacare weren't true? They could have been. The lie serves the truth . . . you can fill in the rest. I am going outside to sit with my dogs and watch them tear apart some new and expensive "indestructible" plush toys I just bought them.

So many lies . . .

  1. Indestructible plush dog toys...my dogs seem to delight in ripping their eyeballs off first. I've never been able to figure that out. The last one was a marmot and in less than 10 minutes it looked like it had been through a chipper. We can't even find one of the eyeballs. So now they wait for the Gruber plush toy but they grow impatient...we may have to find a Pee Wee Herman for the interim, they do sound the same.

  2. When she was talking to Wolf Blitzer Feinstein said:

    “We believe it should see the light of day. And let me say this. This is a 400-plus-page summary. It is not the 4,600 page documentary of all of the detail of what happened. That can be declassified and released one day at an appropriate time.”

    No wonder they are so adamant about publishing the executive summary. When a report is published, the first place the media, and commentators look to inform the public.

    How many times have parts of the executive summary not been reflected in the actual report. But it is too late. The public has been deceived by the initial flood of information.

    I doubt if Feinstein is in any hurry to declassify the remainder of the report. After all, then we would at least be able be able to fact check the executive summary. Of course by then it will be too late.

    1. Even more to the point, as far as Feinstein is concerned, if people die as the result of the report's publication, that's a darned shame, but the Democrats' partisan interests make it necessary.
      From her interview with Blitzer: "But if Americans are killed as a result of this report and they tell you that, I assume you would feel guilty about that,” Blitzer replied.
      “I would feel very badly, of course. I mean what do you think, Wolf Blitzer?” Feinstein shot back.
      “But we [Democrats] lose control. At the end of this year, the Republicans take control. And there’s some evidence that this report would never see the light of day,” she continued. “We believe it should see the light of day...."

    Didn't hear too much from Feinstein when Americans chose to leap twelve hundred feet to a splattering death rather than face incineration thanks to a bunch of jihado-marxist losers who flew planes into buildings.

    Guess she was busy that day cooking another deal with her husband and their chicom 'partners in prosperity'.

    Perhaps she could pass some more of her beloved gun control to scare off the head cutters and keep us safe.


    The Left is hate. Revenge is its pastime. Genocide is its legacy.

  11. You know what's missing from most of the media "reporting" about the SSCI report?

    The minority report and the CIA response.

    Lawfare is doing a great job of combing through them all and comparing & contrasting the information in each. This is a link to Part 2, which includes a link to Part 1.

    1. I suspect that the only readers who might find it useful are those interested in finding the truth of the matter (or at least as much as we are permitted to see). Most of the commentary today has rested solely on the SSCI summary. They even seem to have forgotten that much of this information has already been discussed over the years since ~2003.

      Lawfare is an interesting site.

    1. "Geneva Convention! I heard about it in a movie!"

      Your point is well taken. It is part and parcel of the left's deathgrip on academia from K-12 to college. People are ignorant, don't think critically, are too lazy to do any basic research, etc. Feelings have replaced facts.

  14. Feinstein has gotten around to finally showing she herself and the vicious vengeful Democrats true colors, and the depths of their nefarious creature beings, since they were caught by Gruber, effectively screwing their whole wasted devils brew of a regime, revealing the facts of their depths of deceit:

    http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/judicial-watch-most-corrupt-politicians-of-2007-obama-pelosi-reid/ This explains the company she keeps, quite well.
    And to see all the dirt we could find so far inside Feinstein's purse, and their is a hell of a lot, she's no doubt pissed she can't pull other tricks for money for her husbands company, read about it all here: http://www.judicialwatch.org/?s=feinstein It wreaks, it stinks, it's Democrats.....
    And by the way, "that's not who we are" is typical hussein lying obfuscate style BS, as we will fight like hell, as Americans, and it has never been our style in history, to do the enemies prime physical abuse directives, as shown daily in the media, and practiced by them for 1400 years without break, ever.

  15. And, to the meme that homosexuality is oh-so-wholesome, we have the big Dem. fundraiser and "human rights advocate" Terry Bean and his erstwhile homosexual lover facing charges of molesting a 15-year-old boy. But the report on Lena Dunham suggests that the Left's next step will be to gush about how kids in their early teens need to "experiment" and discover their sexual identities, blah blah blah--and Terry Bean will become a bold pioneer whom a "Puritan culture" crucified for "initiating the young into the beauties of sex" or some kind of gobbledygook along those lines.

    Still, the words of God declaring woe unto those who call evil good and good evil will stand forever, regardless of how many black-robed contemptibles on America's benches decide otherwise.

    3. Actually, guys, I was re-reading the prophets during this Advent season, and chanced upon Isaiah 5:20, which I quoted. I'm a primitive and backwards sort who laments the phenomenon I describe in my original post, but fear our society is heading in that direction like a swarm of lemmings heading for a cliff and thence into the sea.

      Anonymous, I get your facetious comment. I imagine that an awful lot of the world looks at our nation's ill-advised attempt to "normalize" the sin against nature with the utmost horror.
