"was upset because she thought that President Barack Obama had signed into law this month a bill that would spend $20 billion to help the terrorist group Hamas settle in the U.S."There was never any such legislation, but Tina Stone believed it was the truth, according to her Facebook account."

No amount of factual evidence will dissuade a person from believing something so ridiculous. I'm sure they all believed Socialist Negro was coming for their guns too regardless of the fact that there has been more to the contrary passed with this administration than there has for years.

*headdesk* This was why (when they were alive) I'd reply with Snopes rebuttals to my right wing relatives every time they sent me something indicating that John Kerry sacrificed fetal bunnies to Beelzebub. I dunno if it had any impact, but they never joined a militia.

While the derp is strong regarding the email she belived.

I have to say it's not as bad as being part of a Christian militia plotting to murder people.

I finally got my Teabagger aunt to take me off her "ALL TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOTS READ THIS NOW!!!!" email list because of Snopes.

Although it took a few tries for it to sink in when Snopes reprints the original rumor, they're not confirming it, and you have to use that fancy scroll bar thingy to read their actual decision at the bottom.

Only in Texas.

And how is that internet rumor even remotely believable?! Maybe I overestimate people's intelligence or I underestimate their stupidity.

One of my Teabagger friends (*sigh* I'm ashamed to admit I have one, but I'm trying to bring her around) kept forwarding me those stupid emails all the time & I'd just send her a link to Snopes. Finally got her to stop by hitting Reply All, so all of her other friends would realize how stupid she was.

She stopped after that.

I love how she took that fake email, which was already absurd, and inflated the twenty million to twenty billion.

Yeah, that could happen. The U.S. could spend 20 BILLION DOLLARS on resettling Hamas members in this country and no one in the media would pick up on it. Fark, we could move all of them here for that money.

That's how much, $100,000 per Hama? We got to find out how many Hamas there are and if every Hama would even want be be relocated.

Call a spade a spade.

These people are part of the same group that thinks the First Amendment only protects a Christian's right to proselytize.

Interesting. Better than some of them, like the one idiot holding a anti-HCR rally/fundraising event for a kid who couldn't afford some procedure due to no insurance.
 
2010-03-31 07:25:25 PM  
So Obama didn't even do it in secret. He signs it right into law for all to see, and only these geniuses figured out it was to relocate a bunch of Hamas members?

Cognitive dissonance strikes again.

moops: all militia nuts should be killed as soon as they step out of line.

Traditionally, stepping out of a militia line has been a sign that they've already been killed.

No, you'll plan your "retribution" poorly, execute it horribly, and end up with a mess around you that looks like a war zone.

Y'know, just like Detroit...

Her Facebook posting about it:

"I'm peeved,,, when people in this country is getting kicked out of there homes everyday and our government passes a bill to spend more then 20 billion dollars to bring Hamas here and supplies them with food and homes that just wrong."


(Bolded words are my emphasis.)

This is what happens when people who didn't finish high school try to understand a complex political landscape while being bombarded by right wing propaganda messages.

I've seen a few of these laughable political emails floating around out there, and not one of them would survive if the people on the receiving end were actually educated and informed. But when you wear folksy know-nothingness like a badge of honor, you become an easy mark for manipulation. You get mad and hit the "forward" button because you don't know any better.
