“Obama is a Muslim.” Except the right later uncovered some embarrassing flaws in his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, which they exploited on-air ad nauseam. Naturally, they made him a “Christian” to fit the revised lie. The inconsistency was irrelevant. Rightwingers’ hate runs so deep, they buy all falsehoods about their object of revulsion, including conflicting lies .
“Obama was born in Kenya.” Except the State of Hawaii has been verifying his birth records for years and Honolulu newspapers hold microfilm archives of birth announcements including his from 1961.
Rightwingers’ hate for Obama trumps truth. It doesn’t matter how many facts dispute their lies; they’re going to spread them anyway.
The latest lies are more proof the right has gone totally crazy.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney visited London where he attended a fundraiser for his campaign. Foreign political contributions are no problem if you’re a Republican.
If Obama had done the same, imagine the outcry from the right? What if Obama had flown to Indonesia or Kenya to attend a fundraiser? Impeachment would certainly be on the table. Republicans are unabashed hypocrites.
Not only is “Citizens United” undermining our democracy, but foreign political contributions. The floodgates are open. And who’s behind this corruption? Republicans.
Starting his British visit, Romney’s adviser addressed the English on behalf of the candidate: "We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he (Romney) feels that the special relationship is special," the Telegraph quoted the adviser as saying, "The White House didn't fully appreciate the shared history we have."
The religious right will again ignore these many ethical inconsistencies. By doing so, its motive is exposed. There’s nothing “Christ-like” about compromising principle. I guess situational ethics is okay if the desired final result is achieved. The end justifies the means.
The Christian right will continue to accept and tolerate lies because it’s in their best interest to do so politically. But spiritually?
This is the element that could push America off the cliff. Because there are over 100 million of them.
