The left demonizes conservatives over Benghazi, water remains wet

Written By | May 9, 2014

NEW YORK, May 7, 2014 — The announcement of a select committee to investigate Benghazi has liberals panicked. The walls are closing in as the truth slowly comes out. Top Obama assistant Ben Rhodes was recently caught advising Democrats on how to blame Benghazi on an internet video rather than a policy failure. Covering President Obama’s hindquarters weeks before his reelection took precedence over the truth.

With dogged prosecutor Congressman Trey Gowdy leading the select committee, Democrats are expected to get meaner, nastier and more defiant in an attempt to discredit the committee and save Obama and Hillary Clinton. The first leftist out of the gate is television host Jon Stewart. One of five people who tells most liberals what to think, Stewart blasted the GOP investigation in what can best be described as a liberal “circle-the-wagons” mode.

The gist of Stewart’s counter-attack is to bring up completely irrelevant events from a decade ago. This week’s “blame Bush” moment is straightforward. Republicans are demanding the truth about four dead bodies in Benghazi. They did not show outrage when Bush waged an illegal war in Iraq that led to 4,000 dead bodies. Therefore, Republicans are hypocrites only pursuing Benghazi to embarrass a Democratic president. At least Stewart did not make Obama’s race an issue, although that card will be played as soon as Republicans get closer to the truth.

The Daily Show

Stewart had his liberal say. In the spirit of free speech that many liberals continue to try and stifle, Stewart’s narrative needs to be shredded and replaced with one based on truth and facts. This requires dealing with the accuser and the accusations.

Start with Stewart. Radical Islamsists wage global Jihad in the name of protecting Allah. Stewart and his fellow leftists show equal passion in defending their holy one, peace be upon him, Barack Obama. Stewart is not a neutral observer. He is a leftist defending his fellow leftist in the name of their shared leftist religion. Stewart has a history of doctoring footage to humiliate conservatives and cast leftists in the best possible light.

Stewart publicly accused President Harry Truman of being a war criminal for bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Stewart backed down under howls of protests from supporters who reminded him that accusations of war crimes must only be directed at Republicans.

While Stewart fits the stereotype of a smarmy, effete leftist snob, his accusations have to be tackled. The messenger is flawed, but the message is even worse. Rehashing the Iraq War takes time, but the Cliff’s Notes version is cut and dry.

The Iraq War was the right war at the right time with the right President. George W. Bush told the truth. Saddam Hussein did have weapons of mass destruction. The WMD were hidden in Syria. A trace of WMD were found in 2005, and the rest will be found once Bashar Assad joins Saddam Hussein underground. Hillary Clinton and John Kerry had the same intelligence information as Bush. The world is better off without Saddam. The Iraqi people certainly are.

The Iraq War was never about WMD. For the right, it was about forcible regime change, which was proper. For the left, it was about liberals hating George W. Bush more than they love their country.

Liberals began their descent into madness during the 1998 Clinton impeachment hearings, which were also legal and proper. The descent turned into frothing insane rage with the 2000 election. Liberals still incorrectly claim that Bush stole the election. Anger over losing that election affects every politically liberal thought and action. Anything a conservative does is evil. Anything a liberal does is good. This ideological bigotry is based on a bloodlust for political vengeance.

This is why Stewart will attack Republicans for standing by a Republican president for doing the right thing that happened to result in wartime deaths. This is why Stewart will stand by a Democrat president for doing the wrong thing that resulted in deaths that never should have occurred. After all, the left says we are not at war, and refuses to call radical Islam out by name.

If liberals were fitted with dog shock collars, every time they blamed Bush for Obama misdeeds, they would be electrocuted in seconds.

That is why liberals despise the Benghazi investigation. It is the equivalent of having reality truth serum rammed down their throats. George W. Bush was an honest man liberals hated because they disagreed with him. Barack Obama is a corrupt man liberals worship because they agree with him.

Stewart and his weapons of mass distraction cannot alter the facts. The Obama administration’s incompetence got innocent Americans killed. The truth was covered up. The lies are beginning to unravel.

No amount of liberal spin will change the facts on the ground. Whether liberals choose to love America and the truth more than their failed ideology remains to be seen. With the left or without them, the truth about Benghazi will come out. The only partisan witch hunt is the one being conducted by Stewart and his fellow leftists. Their demigod is a false prophet. Their religious deity has been exposed.

All they have left is the screaming, ranting lunacy that comes from those who will back false prophets to the end, good or evil, right or wrong.

If four dead bodies interfere with their zeal, “What difference at this point does it make?”

The truth makes all the difference in the world. The left may not be able to handle it, but they will not have a choice. It needs to be told, it must be told, and it will be told.
