Wingnuts Furious Media Ignored Huge Crowds at Romney Rallies That Are Actually Obama Rallies

News

Matt Barber is an asshole, that is not "news." He tweeted the above famous photo of a Portland rally (which at the time, we recall, some Foxers claimed the huge crowds had turned out not for Obama butfor The Decemberists) and was quite miffed that the media is ignoring these huge, er, Romney rallies? The good folks at Good As You noted this, and Barber was forced most unwillingly to change his complaint from "media ignoring giant Romney rallies" to "now Obama's rallies are so small!" But Barber seems to have gotten his ridiculously bad information from the crazy person after the jump.


"Maggie" is a poll truther.

Can't read the crazy?

Obama Packed 18,000 Into Area Holding 5,000 – Just Kidding – The Media Lied

Actually, the venue holding only 5,000 was almost full, but stories put out by the Wall Street Journal, Politico and the AP said 13,000 stood outside in a drizzling rain, and they knew it was so because the Obama campaign told them it was so. No one counted. No one took a pic. None of the “media” eyeballed it. No evidence at all.

Here’s a crowd – Romney Ryan 2012 in Ohio – in August 2012 – before anyone was paying attention!

What is Maggie's evidence for the media's lie? Oh, none. Except the "Romney rally" picture above. Which, again, is a picture of an Obama rally in Portland in 2008. Jesus.

Who are the people who sit around and paste Romney's name on Obama rally pictures, and painstakingly go through email forwards of actual stupid Dan Quayle quotes and change them so they say Al Gore? Are they Americans for Prosperity interns doing the usual intern scut work before AFP or Crossroads or whatever sends their Disinformation campaigns into the tubes? We are going to assume, "probably."

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.

We feel like we say this a lot during these dark days of the Trump era, but WHAT IN THE HOLY MOTHERFUCKING FUCK DID WE JUST WATCH? And how in the hell can anyone who claims to give a shit about this country be OK with the public tongue-bath Donald Trump just gave Vladimir Putin on live TV?

The reviews are starting to roll in:
