The biggest hindrance to Democracy is untruth. Especially when we are supposed to be able to rely on human decency and our media for information and objective opinion. If liberals weren’t so sloppy at the lies they tell and tricks they pull, they could pose a real danger to our freedom.
The first example involved a “man” by the name of David Weigel who showed up at a political event held for Kentucky. He posed as a racist Republican who was a supporter of Rand Paul. But when the cameramen got word of his trick from the other side (members supporting the liberal actually bragged about what he was doing), the cameraman had a conversation with him both as a Rand Paul supporter and then caught him marching and chanting for the liberal later on that day.
With so much emphasis liberals have placed on the Tea Party (not to mention the NAACP), you would think this story would show up somewhere on CNN. Yes, I know millions of Americans are out of work, losing their homes, and Michelle is enjoying one heck of a taxpayer-funded getaway to Spain, but you’d think after all that has happened with regard to the Tea Party, they’d have time for such raw footage.
Rick Sanchez of CNN has the time to entertain a piece of “raw” video on Sarah Palin which was brought to light by an Alaskan blogger who has been obsessed with the Governor for the past three years.
The video — which Palin herself has responded to on Facebook today — depicts Palin “rolling her eyes” at a “teacher” by the name of Kathleen Gustafson. The “teacher” turned out to be a “theater tech” and sits on the Board of Directors of the town’s local “Family Planning Clinic.”
It’s funny knowing this and then listen to her begin by telling Palin she swore on her “precious Bible” to serve the state then implied that Palin left for personal gain. If she’s a board-member of a Family Planning Clinic and uses the Bible in such an angry context, I find it hard to believe Ms. Gustafson was a Palin supporter to begin with.
Then take into consideration that Gustafson lives in the same town of Homer, Alaska as Shannyn Moore does. Shannyn Moore is President of the Palin Derangement Syndrome Society. For years, she’s “investigated” the Governor (falsely said Palin was under investigation by the FBI and cried victim when Palin’s attorney threatened lawsuit for it) and has entertained Levi Johnston. We all know by now how credible he turned out to be.
C’mon liberals! Are we really supposed to believe that this woman — an unhinged lefty — was standing up and holding a sign that said “Worst Governor Ever!” and happened to be accompanied by her own cameraman and just happens to live in the same town as Shannyn Moore (population of Homer is just over 5,000) all by coincidence?
Immediately Shannyn Moore posted two articles on this, uploaded the video to youtube, copied and pasted her article to the Huffington Post (which drew over 10,000 comments from other lefties suffering from Palin Derangement Syndrome) and sent it to CNN.
This is the same woman who appeared on “Countdown” with Keith Olbermann where she was introduced to his regular 12 viewers.
The indignant “teacher” is not very impressive. It is a well-documented fact that Palin-haters in Alaska filed numerous ethics violations costing taxpayers $2M and Palin $500K in defense fees. She resigned to dis-empower them and give Alaska a Governor who could devote the time to them without those interruptions. Somehow the “teacher” is unable to comprehend this and yet she wants us to believe that parents trust her with guiding their children?
This was Shannyn Moore’s weakest attempt at investigative blogging as it took conservative bloggers about three minutes to solve this. The homely “Girl from Homer” is getting desperate.
CNN should report these developments but I won’t hold my breath.
As noted by “jerry” who I also believe is posing as “robert” on other conservative blogs, Gustafson does work for a school. Though the title is “theater tech” as I stated before (hardly the reading-writing-arithmetic type). And “jerry” denies Ms. Gustafson being President of the local family planning facility but does acknowledge she sits on the board.
Since Shannyn Moore fought so hard for her right to report rumors when she was going around telling others that Palin was being investigated by the FBI, I have appropriately changed the paragraphs which questioned Gustafson’s teaching credentials.
Lastly, she injected herself into the public arena by protesting and certainly should be subjected to the same scrutiny and specificity as Joe-the-Plumber was.
