Jim Hoft’s Monumental Fail of the Week: Tea Party Nazi Signs Were Real

Dumbest man on Internet retains his crown
Wingnuts • Views: 32,785

Yesterday, the Dumbest Man on the Internet, Jim “Gateway Pundit” Hoft, flew into a shrieking rage about a Democratic fundraising letter that said:

DERP

“At one Tea Party rally this week, mobs chanted “Waterboard Obama, Waterboard Hillary!”

At another, radicals waved signs with Nazi symbols.”

Hoft posted two rants about this fundraising letter, both claiming it was a “complete lie,” and actually offering a reward to anyone who could provide proof that teabaggers were waving signs with Nazi symbols:

Disgusting! Democrats Completely Lie About Tea Party in Latest Fundraising Letter …Update: TAKE ACTION NOW | the Gateway Pundit

REWARD OFFERED to DSCC for Proof of “Nazi Symbols” at IRS Tea Party Rallies This Week | the Gateway Pundit

“THIS DID NOT HAPPEN. ANYWHERE.”

And then … what do you know! The Wall Street Journal published a photo of that Tea Party rally, and guess what?

They were waving signs with Nazi symbols! I know, right?

So what does the Internet’s Stupidest Right Wing Parrot do with this information? Is he going to donate that money to Elizabeth Warren as he promised?

Of course not, silly! He’s just pretending he was right all along.

Busted! Guy Cecil and the DSCC Ought to Be Ashamed for Smearing Tea Party to Raise Cash - Joseph Goebbels Would Be Proud | the Gateway Pundit

Hoft’s excuse is so childish and transparently ridiculous, it almost beggars belief:

These signs at the rally in Cincinnati clearly show the denunciation of Nazism not the endorsement of Nazism as Guy Cecil clearly suggested.

He took the signs completely out of context.

This hateful bastard takes the denunciation of fascist tactics completely out of context to imply the Tea Party supports National Socialism!
Joseph Goebbels would be proud.

Of course, the DSCC fundraising letter said nothing of the sort. Having seen plenty of these Nazi symbols on Tea Party signs, I assumed — correctly — that these would be comparing either Obama or a government agency to Nazis. And sure enough, that’s exactly what happened.

You didn’t think Hoft would actually pay up when he was proven wrong, did you? That’s not how the right wing blogosphere rolls. Nope, he just digs in, welches on his promise, and gets even more vitriolic and hateful — and actually compares the DSCC to Nazi Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels.

Ah, right wing blogs. Never change! You’re too pathetically hilarious the way you are.

UPDATE at 5/27/13 1:54:39 pm

Predictably as clockwork, Hoft is now claiming victory, trying to welch out of his bet, and demanding apologies. My reply: Dear Jim Hoft, I’m Not Sorry.
