If its on Facebook or MSM, assume its wrong.

Have you noticed your liberal friends on Facebook spotlighting some unbelievably shocking comments from Republican presidential candidates lately? Comments like Ted Cruz declaring on May 22, “While there may have been an age difference, Josh Duggar’s transgressions are far less an affront to God than what gays do to each other.” Or Dr. Ben Carson saying on May 10, “Mother’s Day is a sad, lonely day for women who aborted their babies. Even if they have a living child, they focus on the one they murdered. It’s why suicide rates are so high on Mother’s Day.” Or Marco Rubio asking on May 26, “Why wouldn’t I trust Josh Duggar to babysit my children? I’d rather leave my daughters alone with him than with Beyonce or Miley Cyrus or Taylor Swift.” Of course, all of these quotes are fake.


They come from a “satirical” Facebook page, “Stop the World, the Teabaggers Want Off.” But that hasn’t stopped more than a few liberals from enthusiastically sharing graphics featuring the imaginary incendiary comments, and stirring themselves into the attendant froth of outrage. The site declares itself to be “for entertainment purposes only,” and that may be true — if you’re the kind of person who devours made-up, outrageous quotes from conservative politicians for fun. But there’s nothing funny about it from the perspective of the politicians’ presidential campaigns, who are starting to see the fake quotes and positions permeate the world of actual news.


“It’s obviously frustrating for any campaign, because the point of these sites is not to inform the public, it’s to cause trouble,” says Brian Phillips, director of rapid response at Cruz for President, who deals with these sorts of stories all the time. “There’s a whole industry of anti-conservative reporters or sometimes just folks on the Left who don’t really care about reporting the truth, who have another agenda to make a candidate look extreme.”

I sent her the Ted Cruz one about the "gay jihad." Her reply was, "Will the gay jihad ride in wearing floral prints yelling " We're fierce y'all""

Are you going to let her in on the joke, or sit back and watch the comments?

Here's some Ted Cruz goodness: http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/ted-cruz-apologizes-making-joe-biden-joke-during-his-time-n369566

 

Taking pot shots at Joe Biden 4 days after 46 year old Beau Biden died from brain cancer. You stay classy, Ted Cruz.

It's so nice to suddenly see your softer side, Ethan. It's nice to know you have such empathy for our political leaders and I've always admired how you set aside politics and likewise chastise Dems for similar actions.

Listen, a narcsissitic sociopath shouldn't be the leader of the free world. This has nothing to do with me.

If anyone has the moral authority to be angry with Cruz for being insensitive and politically motivated at the wrong time, it's the people who edited the Zimmerman 911 call.

So much anger and hatred... Ethan is clearly on the path to the Dark Side.
