Remember Benghazi? Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi? It slipped off the radar this week, so you may have already forgotten about it, which would be healthy.

But not everybody’s healthy, and tonight at the reliably crazed breitbart.com, John Nolte’s feverish fantasies are feeding on themselves: BENGHAZI-GATE ENTERS NEW PHASE: THE COVER UP OF THE COVER UP!!!

“Obama’s Godless Thanksgiving” Fake Outrage Meme Spreads Rapidly Through Wingnut Media

Sure enough, Breitbrat Ben Shapiro’s moronic attack on President Obama’s Thanksgiving address was rapidly picked up by the rest of the right wing Fake Outrage Machine. The Daily Caller has this article based on Shapiro’s post: Obama Thanksgiving Address: Calls to Unite Behind WH, Doesn’t Thank God.

Watch how the Daily Caller’s Christopher Bedford blatantly slants the story against President Obama, saying he “urged the country to unite behind his administration” twice, even though the actual quote from Obama’s speech says no such thing.

During his fourth Thanksgiving presidential address, President Barack Obama referenced the recent, long and bruising campaign season, urged the country to unite behind his administration and, for the fourth year running, neglected to offer verbal thanks to God.

“As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy,” Obama said. “But it also required us to make choices - and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to.”

“Thanksgiving,” he continued, “is a chance to put it all in perspective - to remember that, despite our differences, we are, and always will be, Americans first and foremost.”

The president’s call to unite behind his administration follows a bitter election, in which his opponent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, won independents 50 to 45 percent, and whites 59 to 39 percent.

Notice that when it’s filtered through the Fake Outrage Machine, “we will always be Americans first and foremost” mutates into “you must unite behind my administration.”

And a bit further into the piece, another bizarre take on the President’s words:

The president’s mention of the freedom ‘to worship as we please’ could be seen as a challenge to conservatives and the Catholic Church, both of which have accused his administration of waging a war on religious freedom.

Here I was thinking that the freedom to worship as we please is a core American value, to be celebrated on Thanksgiving. What could possibly be wrong with that?

But at the Daily Caller, it’s a “challenge to conservatives and Catholics,” who are presumably opposed to the idea of worshipping as we please. Or something.

This turkey of a fake outrage also pops up at Knuckle Draggers Central, Fox Nation, with the charming headline: Obama’s God-Less Thanksgiving.

The comments are as stupid and vile as you might expect, of course. Just one example; I stopped reading after this one:

the Obama’s are still one seriously fügly family. Michelle looks like the diseased result of büttséx between a silverback and a warthog. Barf.

Time for the annual persecution complex

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we can look forward to Fox News’s annual Christian Persecution-fest — the “War on Christmas!” This year, expect them to be even more crazed and ridiculous than ever.
