Sometimes I really love right wing journalism. Where else can you find such amusing self-beclownment on a regular basis, written by people with marginal command of the English language and no fact-checking skills at all? It’s some of the funniest stuff on the web (if you ignore the sheer hatefulness of so much of it).
Today’s example of this fine tradition of idiocy comes through TruthRevolt, Ben Shapiro’s lowest common denominator propaganda site for dolts, where they’re hilariously trying to defend Sarah Palin by attacking (who else?) Ellen Degeneres: When Ellen DeGeneres’s Kid Stood on a Dog, There Was No Liberal Outrage | Truth Revolt.
When Sarah Palin posted a New Year’s photo of her 6-year-old son Trig standing on the family dog to reach the sink with the offering of an inspirational message of turning an obstacle into a stepping stone, social media erupted in vile attacks against Palin for allowing such an “atrocity” to take place.
However, when Ellen Degeneres posted the same photo of her daughter standing on their family’s dog to reach the sink back in July of 2014, no one cared:
TPNN [Tea Party News Network] points out that there were a few comments to Ellen’s talk show Facebook page that expressed disappointment and warned that the dog could become uncomfortable and possibly bite, but no one attacked the entertainer personally, and no one stooped to the level of pedophilia as they did in the instance above with Palin.
And the punch line to this inadvertent joke is … wait for it … Ellen Degeneres has no daughter! Boom! They just assumed the photo she posted at Facebook was of her own daughter. Fact-checking? What is that?
If you click the link to the “Tea Party News Network” (bwa haha!) you’ll see that they’re the numbskulls who originated this bone-headed error. TruthRevolt’s Trey Sanchez just parroted it like a good little wingnut propaganda spreader.
Look out, the truth is revolting! Clicking the link above now leads to this:
