Dumbest Man on Internet Uses Infamous Fake Photo of Fonda and Kerry

Jim Hoft’s fail of the day

DERP

Yoda may have had The Force on his side, but Jim Hoft, the legendary Dumbest Man on the Internet, has something much more powerful: The Fail.

And today he’s workin’ that Hoft magic again, as he whips out an infamous, long-debunked fake photograph of John Kerry and Jane Fonda purportedly at an “anti-war rally:”

More Bad News for Generations X, Y and Z… It Looks Like You’re Stuck With an Aging Infrastructure, Too | the Gateway Pundit.

The Snopes entry for this hoax is dated 2004, and it includes the two photos that were merged together to create the fake. But as you can see, it’s still being recycled as truth in the closed environment of the Wingnut Echo Chamber.

Keep up the good work, Jim!

UPDATE at 2/9/13 2:19:13 pm

But wait, the derp continues! LGF contributor Gus points out:

Oops. Another mistake that he made. Jane Fonda was born in 1937 while John Kerry was born in 1943. Ding, ding, ding. Neither of them are baby boomers.

UPDATE at 2/9/13 2:40:06 pm

Hoft has now closed comments and apparently deleted all the existing ones for his post.

christ, a close look at the photo tells you its a bad cut-and-paste job.

Why would he use that picture? It has nothing to do with the story.

Oh, sorry, I forgot.

He has to create a boogieman to make the story appeal to his target audience, hateful little shits with no brains and even fewer morals.

Anything to go and smear Kerry now that he’s Sec. State. And by extension Obama = Evil.

Surprise, surprise. I wonder if that’s to quell the probable outburst of derp that his frothing wingnut readers would spew forth, or to prevent the truth from penetrating his little echo chamber.

He’s the depleted uranium of derp. I have to stop thinking there’s no way these freaks could be any more deranged, stupid, or just plain hateful. Every time I do they manage to outdo themselves. Lately that’s been every half an hour or so.

27 thecommodore  Sat, Feb 9, 2013 3:03:18pm

Well they were both against the war and Hanoi Jane turned in our POW’s to the NVA captors and John Kerry ran away from duty and lied about being in Cambodia as the Swift Boat guys said, so they actually had to have been together in that photo.

See?

The sheer dedication and energy they have for ensuring their own demise is impressive lol.

Wait, decaying infrastructure…when did this start being a wingnut concern and why is a wingnut blaming baby boomer conservatives (I assume at least some baby boomers are conservatives) for not raising taxes to pay to repair it? This is very confusing….

36 subterraneanhomesickalien  Sat, Feb 9, 2013 4:49:52pm

These mother fuckers are really something aren’t they?

Its seem as if the only things that in the fevered dreams of these people that the government is somehow qualified to take a lead in are materials for the use of bringing death to hostile foreign populations and making sure that they aren’t going to be left living in a pool of their own shit in some shanty town after they retire.

And I refuse to take seriously any one that bitches about anything infrastructural and then absolutely refuses to pay higher taxes for its implementation, or simply refuse to see it implemented out of spite because there is a chance a poor person of color might get to see the benefits of it as well.

There is something wrong with that generation. I’m hoping mine doesn’t turn out to be as irresponsible, callous, and self centered. Of course I’m not saying all of the baby boomers are like this, but it does seem as if a sizable portion are.

All I know is that they won’t give a shit when I am paying a fifty percent tax rate on my income after they all leave the workforce, even though it could have been avoided if they would had been willing to pay around thirty eight or forty when they were still working.
