Trump Adviser’s Wife Tweets Fake Photo of Hillary Clinton “Working for Fidel Castro in Havana”

The conspiracy candidate

NH Rep. Al Baldasaro and wife Judy on their heavily armed wedding day

You may recall Donald Trump’s co-chair of veterans’ issues, New Hampshire Representative Al Baldasaro, from the time he publicly called for Hillary Clinton to be “shot for treason,” then refused to back down or apologize, claiming the “liberal media” was smearing him by accurately reporting his actual words, verbatim.

Well, Baldasaro’s wife Judy (seen above in their charming wedding photo) tweeted a Hillary Clinton conspiracy meme today that I hadn’t seen before (and I thought I’d seen most of them!) — that Hillary Clinton traveled to Havana in 1968 to work with Fidel Castro’s “Venceremos Brigade.” She included a photo in her tweet, and addressed it to Fox News:

OMG!

The first thing you’ll notice about this photo is that the woman on the tractor (if it is a woman and not a man with long hair) looks nothing at all like Hillary Clinton, and there’s nothing to indicate it was even taken in Cuba. For comparison, here’s a picture of Hillary in 1968:

The fact is that Hillary Clinton was elected president of the Wellesley College student government in 1968 and served through the winter of 1969, and never went to Cuba.

Googling for more information on this conspiracy theory, I discovered that it’s been bubbling under the surface in various far right discussion dungeons for years, and that’s probably where this fraudulent photo originated. Here it is in February 2015, along with another photo that also looks nothing like Hillary Clinton.

I tweeted to Judy Baldasaro shortly after she posted the fraudulent photo, letting her know it was not Hillary Clinton.

Baldasaro responded by immediately blocking me on Twitter, and then deleting her tweet with no correction or retraction, of course. Then she posted another tweet accusing people who called her on this fake photo of being “sent out” by Hillary.

These are the people next to Donald Trump, folks.

For those of you unfamiliar with that particular case, it was a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1989.

27 years ago.

That held…

Two ways of looking at it: with respect to the individual spouting said bullshit, no there’s no real point; with respect to everyone else, yes, not calling out the bullshit allows people only barely paying attention to believe it.

The Big Lie seems to have become the preferred form of ‘communication’ for RWNJs.

It can be on any subject, and has two main purposes

1) to signal membership in the RWNJ tribe and

2) to try to prevail by force of numbers independent of any reality other than the number of ‘believers’.

One of my sisters actually did go ‘pick coffee for the Sandinistas’, which she acknowledged was one big photo op for them because the regular pickers were 5 times faster.

For this and many other reasons, she will not be running for president.

That original “gop briefing room” post has a second photo alleged to be HRC in Cuba. But while the tractor woman has long curly hair, the second alleged HRC woman has shorter straight hair, and additionally looks nothing like the tractor woman (or HRC of course). That poster was just trolling people, right?

That assumes there is a difference between trolling and normal RWNJ signaling that may not be present in real life. It’s hard to consistently keep all the implications of the total indifference of RWNJs to truth and reality in mind.

re: #10 Stanley Sea

Since I taught in public high schools in the South for over 30 years, when I read about this yesterday, I figured the chickensh*t principal and superintendent would suspend or fire the teacher. It’s what high-level officials do in many southern states rather than take the time to explain to the whiners that they’re wrong. Stomping on the flag was a perfectly valid addition to a lesson plan on Texas v. Johnson. Our GOP, Gov. Nathan Deal and RW lawmakers in the state legislature, wimped out a few years ago when a group of white females began complaining about Common Core and calling it “something created by the federal government and President Obama.” Instead of informing them that it was a plan created by state governors before this president entered office, Deal, pressured by the lawmakers, issued an executive order stating that the state of GA would follow no mandates handed down by the U.S. Dept.of Education under this administration. If I were this teacher, I’d hire a good lawyer and sue the pants off the woman who started the mess, the district, the superintendent, and the school administrators. If he’s a member of a teachers’ union or professional association, he can sue them. Even though we couldn’t bargain collectively in GA, I was a NEA member. I remember that at the time, NEA provided $1 million in coverage that each member could use in legal cases. If I were him, no way I’d let them make me look like I was in the wrong when I wasn’t. Too many parents don’t realize how they’re harming their own kids’ education when they decide to throw an unnecessary hissy fit about something they know nothing about. The officials in the school system are more interested in placating one woman/small group of persons than they are in making sure their social studies students understand and remember the material teachers cover. I retired in June 2009, and now, I’m glad that I did because since then teachers have become the prime targets of know-nothings and people who chose not to teach.

That is what I’ve been saying. The media is the one painting the picture. I’ve just been trying to figure out how you trigger them to stop showing her bashing Trump, which is what they seem to like to do. So the blog post is saying what I’ve been trying to say.

One exception…I’ve never tried to paint myself as any kind of an armchair expert that thinks he knows better than anyone in her campaign. I’m just a fool that is more concerned with the outcome from the media’s handling of how they show her.

And I can’t really address the media, I have no standing! ; )

Charles Pierce cuts to the heart of this election:

I can’t recall as unstable an election in my lifetime. There have been no reliable guideposts to its course, no consistent ideological or political landmarks to navigate by. Ever since the nominations were decided, the whole thing has been tossed into a runaway blender. I can accept that campaigns are no longer high-minded exchanges of ideas, even though God knows we need more good ones—ideas, that is. But this ungainly critter is stomping around like an elephant dying a frenzied death with a bullet in its brain.

I will grant you that a lot of this has to do with the fact that the Republicans have nominated an, ahem, unconventional candidate. The forces that have been unleashed in the country have shaken up the conventional political alliances and shattered the false veneer of propriety that keeps us from noticing that there is a lot in American politics (and in American life) that is angry, greedy, reckless and violent. My main problem with the Clinton campaign is that it doesn’t seem to realize the depth at which the political landscape has destabilized.

re: #29 majii

It has taken me a long time to realize how totally the Republicans oppose public education. Perhaps 20 years ago they would still accept the idea of it, as long as blacks etc. were excluded, but even a return to explicitly segregated schools would not satisfy today’s GOP.

Now they want public education gone, completely. Fiscal conservatives love that idea because only the well-off will be able to afford education, thereby further entrenching economic classes in the US. Social conservatives stand opposed to education in toto, preferring instead a crude indoctrination of children in proper beliefs.

Did she carry a purse while picking like the pictured woman on the tractor? That could have slowed her down. Nothing screams “authentic field worker” like a shoulder bag.
