Do Conservatives Lie, Or Are They Just Misunderstood?

truth lies

Let's take a look at a recent news story first...

"Local News: Protesters Didn't Actually Chant 'Kill A Cop.' Sorry For The 'Misunderstanding.'"

A Baltimore Fox station had to apologize to Black Lives Matter protester, Tawanda Jones, after they were busted for deceptively editing a protest chant to say "Kill a cop."

"Sunday evening in Baltimore, with the nation still reeling from the shooting deaths of two NYPD officers the previous day, Fox affiliate WBFF aired a story claiming that law enforcement officials were facing increased threats amid nationwide, largely nonviolent protests against police brutality and misconduct. To make the point, WBFF included a clip of a local woman leading a protest chant allegedly urging others to 'kill a cop.' As WPYR reporter P. Kenneth Burns was quick to point out, however, this claim was completely inaccurate. (Gawker was also among the first to report WBFF's error.)


"The clip was taken from video filmed at the National 'Justice For All' March in Washington, D.C. earlier this month. Tawanda Jones is the woman in the video leading protesters in the following chant: 'We won't stop! We can't stop! Till killer cops are in cell blocks!' But when WBFF aired the clip -- or at least a version of it that cuts off midway through the chant -- this is how an anchor interpreted Jones' words: 'We won't stop, we can't stop, so kill a cop...'"

There are big lies...



...and there are little lies...



Some think that Conservative liars are stupid...



Others think they lie because they're crazy...



And by "crazy" we mean REALLY nuts...



Sometimes the fact-checkers have an easy time checking whether the Cons have lied...



...but at most times they just check to see if the Con's mouth was open.



With lies, the Cons know that the best defense is a good offense...



...and sometimes it's best that they just say nothing at all.



Because the truth shall set us free, and lies will take care of the rest of the Cons...



There are ways that Conservatives can make you think they're telling the truth...



And everyone knows that the American media are really our nation's truth-tellers...



...because there's no reason for the Cons to lie so much, is there?



After all, they have the RIGHT to lie!



So if you just know how to separate fact from fiction, you'll be better off for it...



But getting back to our original question, maybe we should just call this "misunderstanding" the New Normal...



********************


Conservative lies outnumber lies from others by a whopping margin, and Faux News is the best of the best when it comes to lying.

As the man says, "Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party," and the Republican Party has a lot of reasons to lie...because Conservatism is nothing more than a criminal cartel hell-bent on destroying our democracy as best they can...unless we stop them.

Criminalize Conservatism NOW! (Joyce, Jnr.)
