Cheerleading the lies of the left…
There has been so much propaganda and misinformation coming out following the events that took place in Paris just a week ago. Much of this coming right from
the horse’s our president’s mouth. Despite what several government intelligence experts have stated, Obama is insistent that we have a very stringent vetting process in place for the 10,000 Syrian refugees that he is unilaterally imposing on the American people.
Sadly, the mainstream media just blindly go along with Obama’s trail of lies and deception. There is no real journalistic effort to call any of what he has said into question. Much of the challenge is that Obama knows that the majority of voters and citizens in this country are these so-called “low information voters”. These are the people who watch the network news assuming the information they see is the result of journalistic integrity. Unfortunately, they are being misled. Obama has become a master of deceit. He knows that if he says it, the mainstream media will not only fail to challenge him, they will help spread his narrative. His presidency has relied on the Praetorian guard media to protect and help him. There are many examples of him doing this. This week he said the following:
“When I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which a person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution — that’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion.”
The problem with that statement is that we have had a history of using religious testing to vet refugees. As for the media response – crickets! Obama is also a master propagandist. He took the opportunity to mock Ted Cruz and other conservatives saying, “They’re scared of widows and 3 year old orphans.” It’s exactly this type of propaganda that he counts on to further his objectives.
Thankfully Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC) is not afraid to set the record straight:
Obama aside, we also see the liberal left extend their own reach of deception. Social media is a favorable avenue where you will often find them cheerleading their own lies. Here are a few examples:
According to Snopes.com: “Given this history, it is undeniably true that Steve Jobs’ biological father was a Syrian immigrant — but was he also a refugee? This is where the story becomes less clear. Virtually all articles detailing Jandali’s life describe him as a Syrian immigrant, not a refugee. In fact, we found no articles describing him as a refugee published prior to the November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris. While Jandali appears to have fled Beirut around 1952 due to the unrest occurring in that country at the time, we found no evidence that he could not have safely returned to Syria afterwards.”
Then there’s this one:
It is American to dutifully protect the citizenry of this country. It is American to ensure that any refugee allowed in this country has been properly vetted. It is American to be diligent and question the acceptance of refugees after seeing the failure of refugee practices in Europe. Congress passed a bill this week asking for more stringent and detailed vetting procedures before allowing refugees into the US. A reasonable bill that Obama has vowed to veto. Why?
It’s my hope that we have a new dawn in America. An America that is awakening and is fed up with these false narratives. But it’s up to each of us to make a difference. It’s time to hold this president and his media mouthpieces accountable. Let’s make that happen!
