Jim Hoft’s Idiotic Post of the Week: The ‘Occupy Rape’ That Wasn’t

Not just dim, dishonest

Channeling the spirit of Andrew Breitbart, Jim Hoft, the redoubtable Gateway Pundit, is hyperventilating and shrieking “Stop the raping!” He must have a Google News alert set up for “Occupy AND rape.”

Note that whenever Hoft slams the Occupy movement, he robotically inserts the phrase “Obama-endorsed.”

Another Day… Another Rape at an Obama-Endorsed #Occupy Camp | the Gateway Pundit.

DERPStop the Killing! Stop the Raping!

England Gamble, 53, of New Haven, is the latest #occupier to be charged with rape. …

The #Occupy movement may be winding down but not the raping.
NBC Connecticut reported…

If you’re reading a randomly capitalized blog post by Jim Hoft (something I don’t really recommend) and you see him link to a news article to back up one of his smears, it’s always a good idea to click through and read it yourself. Because Hoft is often lying about it.

In this case, breitbart.com star blogger Jim Hoft linked to NBC Connecticut: Woman Raped at Occupy New Haven: Cops.

Hoft quoted the first five paragraphs of the NBC article, but oddly stopped quoting right before paragraphs 6 and 7:

Gamble is on the state sex offender registry for a first-degree sexual assault conviction in 1991. The registry said he was released from prison in 1996 and did not register his address. 

Members of the Occupy movement said neither Gamble nor the victim are members of the movement. They said both are homeless and set up a tent nearby.

To sum up, the very article to which Jim Hoft is linking shows his own post to be a steaming pile.

Just another day in the vague, confused, but very very angry life of Jim “Dim” Hoft, the Internet’s Dumbest Wingnut.

UPDATE at 3/14/12 1:17:40 pm

Police confirm that the alleged rapist was not part of the Occupy movement.
