Many of our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left don’t want us to talk about the new information confirming what most of us crazy teabaggers have long suspected: The White House directly pushed the lie that the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was caused by an anti-Muslim YouTube video.
They knew it wasn’t true. They also knew that they had an election coming up in less than two months, the debates were looming, and this debacle threatened to overshadow Obama’s heroic act of single-handedly climbing through Osama Bin Laden’s bedroom window with a knife between his teeth.
With the help of their enablers in the mainstream media*, the Obama team was able to maintain this lie — and all their other lies about what happened before, during, and after the Benghazi attack — long enough for Obama to get reelected.
It was supposed to be over. It was supposed to be old news. What a sense of relief our lefty friends felt.
But now the dumb wingnuts have been proven right, and it’s not fair.
That’s why the #BenghaziDeniers are out in force, with the help of “Think” “Progress,” the guys at Media Matters who haven’t started striking yet, and the rest of their miserable ilk. They’re working very hard to convince you that this doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter that the White House lied to you about the murder of an abandoned U.S. ambassador by Islamic terrorists, due to Obama’s astonishing incompetence. It doesn’t matter that they think you’re stupid enough to believe pretty much anything. It doesn’t matter. Because it just doesn’t. Shut up.
I, for one, eagerly look forward to being berated, furiously and at great length, about how little this matters. I look forward to being lectured, by the same idiots who’ve turned “BENGHAZI!!!11!!” into a punchline, that we’re “politicizing” this by daring to talk about the evidence that this was a cover-up done for political reasons.
You dragged Obama across the finish line, guys. Now he’s holding a broken trophy, and all your spittle-flecked denial and deflection won’t fix it.
You’d better get used to the taste of your own medicine, because we’ve got plenty of it.
Open wide, #BenghaziDeniers.
Update: The thoroughly vindicated Sharyl Attkisson has more.
