Once in a while we get an absolutely perfect picture of how utterly deranged the Republican Party has become. Today’s picture of degradation comes from Greg Abbott, governor of Texas, who is actually tweeting a link to the Dumbest, Most Racist, Most Dishonest Man on the Internet… Jim Hoft. Yes, the blogger who frequently links to white supremacists, makes up stories out of thin air and hatred, and never corrects an error. The guy who originated the completely false story that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson suffered serious facial fractures in a struggle with Michael Brown.
I’d better stop recounting Hoft’s crazy dishonest posts now, because I’ll be going on forever. He’s horrible beyond belief. And he’s the go-to blogger for the Republican governor of Texas.
(Hoft’s post is exactly as moronic as the title implies, of course.)
