I find it funny though, that Newsbusters is evidently the devil incarnate here, but when the left does the same thing, it is cheered. hmmm........

The left doesn't need to cherry-pick a single line out of an interview in order to invoke outrage.

They just have to sit there and let the conservatives do their thing. Rather like how Obama could just run unedited segments of the GOP debates without saying a single word...

And I told you that I pay through the, yeah, for health insurance, about $1,200 a month with a two hundred, a two thousand dollar deductible before the insurance company even kicks in a dime. So that stretches me to my limits, if you know what I mean. And I had something I needed to go to the doctor, but honestly I put it off because I still had to meet the deductible. And in a bit of a crying fit, I screamed out I hate this G**-damned country! How can I live in a place that let's people go broke because they get sick?! How is health care not a basic human right? Well, you know what? Last week we took a step towards making this country a better place. Burt we still got a long way to go, a long way to go.

Frustration is reasonable under circumstances like this, and his statement ended up being optimistic.

Last I checked, conservatives aren't whining about how much they hate America because of that gosh-darn Supreme Court decision on Obamacare.

ARE YOU farkING RETARDED?

Huh?

Nicole Sandler: "I Hate This God-damned Country!"
Newsbusters: "She said " 'I Hate This God-damned Country! ' "

There wasn't any twisting of the words. Their entire "story" is that Nicole Sandler (who?) said the words, "I Hate This God-damned Country! " (which she did). That's their only point. They'd have to write more of a story in order to be twisting her words. And considering that almost all of the text of their story is two paragraphs quoting exactly what she said, there's not really any missing context, either. It's just a red meat article--its sole purpose is to upset the Derpy Right, and apparently it riles up the Derpy Left as well.

The only question is why it was even worthy of the politics tab here. Well, that and why anybody cares that Newsbusters writes articles.

Trolling makes fark money though. The more outraged people get, the more clicks an article gets, the more ads are viewed.

The same thing happens all over the Politics tab. Nobody pays attention to this bullshiat like the people here. But folks swear that every new tidbit is going to bring down an empire. "Romney put his dog on the roof?!?!?! That does it! Obama will win in a landslide!"

Then, I go and speak with regular people and they say "Mitt Romney had a dog? He seems like a cat person. What ever happened to the pizza guy who liked to fark with women?"

Nope, they didn't twist her words at all.

They just cherry-picked her statement out of an entire paragraph that put the statement into a different context.

Her statement was one made out of frustration and anger over the current system of medical coverage, a cry of despair that people are forced to choose bankruptcy and financial ruination or 'die'.

And there are people in this country that think that this dilemma is an okay way of doing things.

Taking her statement, as it is, out of context, is damning.

Hearing the statement in context to what she was talking about, understanding her perspective, I can condone her frustration and anger.

But then Newsbusters wouldn't want that, now would they?

NASCAR? Check
Coca-Cola products? Check
Bloated sense of worth? Check
Despicable grasp of Math / Science? Check
Rampant attempts (and successes) at passing religiously-motivated legislation into law? Check
Polarized two-party system that has worse gridlock than US405 outside of Santa Monica at 5 pm on a Friday? Check

Don't hate the game, hate the players.

But as I pointed out, they included the full context of the quote, which they wouldn't have done if the context would matter to their point. Maybe you're missing their point--their point is that no conservative would say those terrible words in any context, so the context doesn't need to be hidden. They don't care if you see it. She said the magic words, and that's their entire point.

So no, there was no twisting and there is no context issue. They're just upset about the magic words, which prove that all Democrats are horrible.

Bullshiat. Fark will link to places like the Huffington Post, which leans left about as far as the Wall Street Journal or the Washington Times leans right. There's an ideological bias there, as I mention above, but it's within the bounds of sanity.

First off... Subby, your headline skills suck ass. I had to read that mess 3 times to figure out what you were talking about.

Second: This is really "news"? I've heard worse from the Right just in the last year. Hell, I've heard more in the last week.

Which brings us to:

"Last I checked, conservatives aren't whining about how much they hate America because of that gosh-darn Supreme Court decision on Obamacare."

Really? The Right Wing Butthurt Machine has been runnig nonstop. Morons are stating that they are heading to Canada(Which only proves that they are morons because Canada has both gay marriage and socialized medicine), and people are even calling for armed revolt. But yeah, the Right is handling this with grace and dignity.

Whatever. Either way, your blog sucks.

99.9% of Liberals do something offensive, it is not offensive since the 99.9% of data points are a crazy outlier that nobody pays attention to anyway.

/this is what liberals actually believe
