Some rough language here, but it’s one of the funnier “Hitler finds out about….” videos I’ve seen. (For those unfamiliar with Breaking Bad, a “Walter White fugue state” refers to a time when White pretended memory loss to avoid trouble.
Do you remember how Progressives once identified themselves as “reality-based community”? The phrase “reality-based community” actually originated from George W. Bush’s team in 2004, but the Left swiftly co-opted it. For example, in that same election cycle, Al Gore, while campaigning for John Kerry, praised Kerry for being “a proud member of the ‘reality-based’ community.” Progressives even made buttons to show that, when it came to reality, nobody does it better than a Progressive.
That “reality-based community” label seems sadly tattered and faded, though, doesn’t it? It’s not just that their ideas, when finally put into effect, proved to be disastrous, with everything from economic ideas, to Obamacare, to national security failing to live up to the hype. It’s that the proud members of the reality-based community prove to be living in a series of outright lies.
What did we expect already from yesterday’s Prayer Breakfast? Obama long ago put the world on notice that he’s going full Bulworth (i.e., after six years in office, he intends, finally, to stop lying and speak the truth).
While before Obama just let out peevish little trickles of animosity, anyone paying attention could tell that:
(a) he’s profoundly ignorant about history — not just American history, but any history, including Muslim and Christian history;
(b) he hates Christians and Christianity;
(c) he hates America, no matter that this nation twice elected him as president (with a little help from the IRS, of course); and
Caped Crusader left a wonderful comment on my post about Brian Williams’ Stolen Valor lie:
He and Hillary should form “S(T)EAL TEAM 1”, for those who lack valor but still need some desperately to prove their worth to themselves, by stealing a little unearned valor. after living a lie all their lives.
I said “that ought to be a poster,” so both Caped Crusader and RaymondJelli took me up on that challenge. Here’s Caped Crusader’s poster:
And here’s RaymondJelli’s
Thanks so much both of you for giving such a sharp visual edge to Caped Crusader’s clever joke!
If anyone else feels inspired — go for it!!
Star & Stripes has the scoop:
NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.
Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.
We call that the “Hillary Clinton” excuse. Hillary, as you may remember, lied about sniper fire in Bosnia.
Leftists are narcissists. Narcissists do not have objective truth. The truth is always defined by their needs, whether emotional, professional, economic, or anything else. The Leftist’s reality is always bounded by the needs of the moment and Williams is a Leftist. Williams, a weedy little Leftist talking head, felt emasculated being around real warriors in Iraq (and being around some real reporters who actually went to the dangerous places). He needed to pump himself up, just as Hillary did.
UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has found the best Brian Williams quotation ever. Really. Ever.
That would be NBC’s Brian Williams you see making his graceful little homage to the King . . . er, the President:
During the feudal era, the structure was king, high nobles, knights, everyone else. Obeisance was expected from the person in the lower position to the person in the higher position. In this new era, we’re starting to get a feel for our new hierarchical relations: Media people bow to Obama, Obama bows to the King of Saudi Arabia. Welcome to the new Dark Ages.
