Today at the site the Dumbest Man on the Internet built, Jim Hoft’s idiot pal Andrew Marcus is doubling down on the derp with yet another hilarious attempt to deny Jerad Miller was a wingnut with views very similar to theirs: SHOCK VIDEO: Vegas Cop Killer Ranted in YouTube Clip Like Crazed Leftist | the Gateway Pundit.
Videos are surfacing of one of the terrorist Las Vegas shooters.
Dressed in Joker face, Jerad Miller rails against “incarcerating innocent Americans and holding them indefinitely.”
Despite attempts on the left to paint these terrorists as conservatives, the truth is they would’ve blended right in at a Code Pink rally.
They were so radical, they were BOOTED from the Cliven Bundy protest camp.
In the video, Miller rants about FEMA camps, the government taking away his guns, his dread of the “One World Government,” and his fear that Obama is instituting tyranny.
Sure, that sounds exactly like a “crazed leftist.”
Here’s a photo of this “crazed leftist” at the Bundy Ranch:

I’d make fun of this some more, but it really is self-mocking. These morons have entered a realm beyond parody.
There’s a reason why Jim Hoft, fabled Dumbest Man on the Internet, wins awards from right wing groups for “accuracy,” and it has nothing to do with accuracy. He’s a wingnut hero because he’s the most shameless attack dog in the right wing kennel, willing to say anything at all, no matter how patently ridiculous, to defend the “cause” (whatever that is).
Today’s case in point: Las Vegas Police Shooters ID’d: Married, Meth-Using Neo-Nazi Socialists | the Gateway Pundit.
Yes! He’s actually claiming that since they were “neo-Nazis,” this makes them “socialists.” You can’t make up this kind of idiotic wharrgarbl.
The Las Vegas police shooters were identified as two Neo-Nazi socialists.
Neighbors said “Jared” and “Amanda” had talked about killing police officers then going underground until the time was right to come out and kill some more.
They were also meth-heads.
The conspiracy nuts were drug addicts.
The couple was using meth.
It’s like free verse written by a sub-literate idiot.
And by the way, Las Vegas officials announced today that the Millers were not neo-Nazis at all — they put a swastika on one of the policemen they murdered, as a statement that cops are like Nazis.
Neighbor of Las Vegas shooters Jerad and Amanda Miller says they planned to put a swastika “on every cop we kill” http://t.co/mFVWCuURnW
So Hoft’s entire premise (if you can call it that) was stupidly wrong, right from the get-go.
Don’t expect a correction — that’s not how right wing attack dogs roll.
Fox News loon Todd Starnes is one of those right wingers so deranged that all you can do is laugh when he pens one of these incredibly stupid “opinion” pieces: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to a Ham Sandwich.
Starnes is so consumed by his paranoid persecution fantasies, he can’t even go to the grocery store without encountering imaginary repression. I almost feel sorry for the guy; it must be miserable to be this obsessed.
I was about check out when I suddenly remembered that I needed some cheese.
So I made a beeline for the dairy aisle and that’s when I made a startling discovery. I brought my three-wheeled shopping cart to a screeching halt. I came face to face with a massive sign bearing giant letters.
It read: “HISPANIC CHEESE.”
I stared at the display for quite some time. I found myself drifting into an imaginary conversation with a store clerk…
“Do you need some help, sir?”
“Yes. Could you tell me where you keep the Caucasian cheese?”
“I’m sorry, sir but we don’t carry Caucasian cheese - although, we do have a rather nice selection of white cheddars.”
I was tempted to purchase some “Hispanic” cheese, but I feared retribution at the checkout counter. What if the clerk confronted me about trying to purchase a cheese that was contrary to my ethnicity?
Definitely the dumbest thing you’ll read this week.
Here’s the half-governor of Alaska, with another of her wonderfully classless statements, lovingly crafted to appeal to the lowest common denominator of the right wing base: Sarah Palin: Barack Obama Known for ‘Mom Jeans’.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a man known for wrestling bears while President Barack Obama is known for wearing mom jeans.
“People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil,” Palin said to Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday night. “They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”
This stupid, obviously faked “foreign student ID card” for Barack Obama has been debunked for years, but continues to circulate in the Birther dungeons of the far right — and no dungeon is deeper, darker, or dumber than the place where Mr. Jim Hoft hangs his very small hat: Making the Rounds: Barry Soetoro’s Columbia University School ID | the Gateway Pundit.
This picture is making the rounds on the internet today.
Young Barry Soetoro at Columbia University.
It’s so hard keeping up with this guy’s story.
One day he’s telling everybody he’s from Kenya.
Even writing it in a book:
Then you find out he’s Indonesian.
It’s all so confusing.
UPDATE: The ID is a fake. The book bio was reportedly a “mistake by the publisher.”
But wait — the estimable Mr. Hoft isn’t finished being an idiot yet! A new update passes on the views of his deranged Birther co-host, Mara Zebest:
UPDATE: More from Mara Zebest:
The bio is NOT fake NOR is it a MISTAKE. Whenever a book is published… the AUTHORS WRITE THEIR OWN BIO and present the bio to the publisher.
From there the bio (like everything else in the book) goes through extensive editors for grammatical errors and general reviews.
Next, the bio (or sometimes referred to as the front matter and back matter) are sent back to the author for what is termed an AR (Author Review) in which the author approves the final text statements (especially if there are suggested changes). Only after several eyes review everything and the author gives his/her stamp of approval — is all the book material then sent to production.
Production puts together a pre-press version of the book and guess what? The pre-press version often goes back out to the editors and the author to make sure no mistakes are present before the book goes to press.
So for Obama to claim that he knew nothing about his bio and to additionally claim that the bio information was a mistake is completely absurd.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the winner of the right wing’s Accuracy in Media award.

We should note that Bryan didn’t come up with this idiotic idea all by himself, though. Bryan is recycling a 2-year old conspiracy theory first floated by … YES! The Dumbest Man on the Internet, Jim Hoft.
In December 2011 this brain dead fantasy was a featured LGF post: Jim Hoft’s Idiotic Post of the Week: Obama Photoshopped Into Situation Room.
And so the circle of derp will be unbroken — from the febrile imagination of Jim Hoft directly to the religious fanatic ravings of Bryan Fischer. Conspiracies without end, amen.
If there’s one thing the Dumbest Man on the Internet is good at, it’s gloating: Doofus Charles Johnson Falls for Bogus Tea Party Rally Shot to Bash Conservatives | the Gateway Pundit
Poor Charles Johnson.
If he’s not trolling right-wing blogs or bashing conservatives he’s just not happy. Too bad for Chuck, he would be much more effective if he didn’t do such sloppy work. Take his latest post, for instance, where bashes the Tea Party for low turnout today in Washington DC.
Take a close look at the photo below.
The photo Charles posted is not from the Audit IRS Tea Party today in Washington. The picture he posted is from an immigration rally on the other side of the US Capitol today.
Here’s a shot from today’s Tea Party rally where between 10,000 and 15,000 turned out.
Once again, Charles Johnson is left looking like an idiot leftist.
Better luck next time, Chuck.
Why do wingnuts always sound like a badly-written Lex Luthor rant when they gloat?
Be that as it may, I do have a correction to make, because Jim Hoft is right. (This may be the first and only time I ever write that sentence.) Here’s the picture I posted originally:
This photo does not show the Tea Party rally; it is indeed a different rally.
So does that mean Jim Hoft is also correct that the turnout was “10,000 to 15,000?” (Notice that he’s now inflated it even beyond his original fantasy numbers.)
Of course not! Even when he’s right about something, the inestimably dim Jim Hoft turns it into a fail.
Hoft includes this photo of the rally, taken from a low angle, and claims it shows 15,000 people:
This is the same trick Hoft always tries to pull, and it really doesn’t fool anyone — but he does it every time.
Here’s another shot of the rally from The Daily Beast, showing the real size of the crowd:
Does that look like 15,000 people to you? The Associated Press caption for the photo:
Hundreds gathered on the grounds of the Capitol to protest. (J. Scott Applewhite/AP)
Yep, “hundreds” is more like it.
Jim Hoft really should post a correction too at this point, to revise his fantasy turnout numbers drastically downward, but we all know that’s just not how Hoft rolls.
This morning half-governor Sarah Palin took to the Internets to spread her signature dumbassitude, getting the IRS scandal confused with the James Rosen scandal and chirping:
The IRS is closed for the day, feel free to use your phones.
