Some advocates for liberal causes are simply naive but well-meaning people. They’re rather like the “useful idiots” of whom Soviet leaders spoke: they mean well, but their efforts are ultimately destructive.
But some of them are, bluntly, nothing but lying sacks of excrement who should be exposed as exactly that. For brevity, I’ll simply refer to them as “lying bastards”, or “LBs” for short.
Want an example? Take a look at “The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence”, for one.
It seems that this particular group of LBs has decided to go after Georgia Representative John Barrow. They’ve done so by selectively editing some of his former campaign ads to remove significant parts – omissions that significantly change the meaning of the original.
Here’s one example of what these LBs did. In the Congressman’s original ad, he says “I’m John Barrow, and long before I was born, my grandfather used this little Smith & Wesson here to help stop a lynching.”
In the LBs’ version, the quote is “I’m John Barrow, and long before I was born, my grandfather used this little Smith & Wesson here.” The rest – which is kinda pertinent, in my opinion – is omitted. And then the lying bastards cut to a video montage of coverage of the Sandy Hook school shooting.
Both videos are available in the article cited above. Take a look for yourself if you like.
Talk about a hatchet job. But that’s neither new nor surprising when it comes to causes supported by liberals. Remember NBC’s deliberate selective editing of the George Zimmerman’s 911 call in the Trayvon Martin case?
Being a LB isn’t limited to gun control advocates.
