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.

Every day is a Cornucopia of Fail at the website of the Internet’s Dumbest Man, and today he’s got an EXCLUSIVE BREAKING NEWS BOMBSHELL about the evil Michelle Obama and her associations with terrorists!
Oh wait, actually, it’s not a terrorist. It’s that Saudi national who was injured in the Boston bombings, the guy who had absolutely nothing to do with perpetrating them. He’s in the hospital, and Michelle Obama visited that hospital to support the wounded victims, and since he’s a wounded victim Michelle Obama visited him too.
He’s not a terrorist. He’s a victim of terrorism. And he was only one of many people visited by the First Lady.
Yet somehow, in the dank murky swamp of Jim Hoft’s alleged mind, this is supposed to be incriminating evidence of … something.
But it gets even worse. This … something … goes all the way to the top, people. Jim’s BREAKING NEWS: someone with the same name as the non-terrorist Saudi student took a TOUR OF THE WHITE HOUSE … not once, but SEVERAL TIMES!
Saudi student Abdul Rahman Ali Issa Al-Salimi Al-Harbi was injured in the Boston Marathon Bombings.
He was once a “person of interest” in the bombings. He was put on a terror watch list after the bombings.
Michelle Obama visited al-Harbi in the hospital last week.
He posted pictures on his Facebook page
Then there’s this…
Abdul Rahman Al-Harbi has visited the White House several times since 2009.
Of course, the White House will say it was another “Abdul Rahman Al-Harbi.”
Probably just a coincidence.
Jim Hoft, like many right wing bloggers, loves to paint himself as the best friend of Israel — or to be more precise, the best friend of the Israeli far right. But his loud support for Israel doesn’t seem to include spelling the name of the country correctly: Former Isreali Ambassador: North Korea Needs to Be ‘Wiped Off the Map’ (Video) | the Gateway Pundit.
And yes — he also misspelled it at YouTube:
That big bold spelling mistake has been posted at the right’s premier blog for more than 6 hours now. Winner of the “Accuracy in Media” award at CPAC 2013!
To make this even more derpalicious, here’s Dim Jim last July, bashing President Obama for a printed invitation that … you guessed it … misspelled “Israel:” FAIL. Team Obama Invites Jews to Big Synagogue Campaign Stop - Misspells Israel (Updated) | the Gateway Pundit.
With anyone else, you’d probably think this is a joke. But Jim Hoft, the legendary Dumbest Man on the Internet, is not kidding. He honestly believes that President Obama is causing long lines at Reagan Airport, just to hassle people like him.
Paranoid right wing derangement, combined with epic stupidity. An award-winning combination!
