This is just one example of how the rift between Trump supporters and Cruz supporters has come between people who used to be friends. We all called ourselves “conservatives” and supposedly believed in the same smaller government, lower taxes, strong military and so on. But then the 2016 presidential election intruded. People chose sides. That’s normally not a big deal, but this time it’s different – very different.
The Trumpanzees have taken on the demeanor of Donald Trump. They lie, disparage, insult and ridicule Cruz supporters as if we were ignorant rubes who couldn’t tie shoes without help. But, the truth is that they are the ones who have been brainwashed by Donald Trump’s aura. They believe what The Donald says and immediately slam Cruz’s statements as lies because they’ve adopted Trump’s characterization of Cruz as “lying” Ted Cruz.
I just happened to stop by one of the blogs that I used to think of as a “friendly” site. I thought that we were friends and I can recall commiserating with her when her husband passed away. I always thought highly of her, but now, without my saying anything against her, she’s become a detractor of our Pesky Truth blog. Calling it Pesky UnTruth and such. That’s ok, we’re not likely to have any common audience anyway, but some of the miscreants that she’s gathered around her look like a Who’s Who of the Animal Farm.
It appears that they like to visit here to see what we’ve got to say about Trump and then they go back to the “Farm” and do their best to ridicule us. Apparently Pesky Truth is living “rent free” in the meager confines of the collective brains of these Trumpanzees – so be it.
That’s fine, but there’s only one thing: they’re posting LIES right there and holding them up as TRUTH. When I saw this one, I knew that I had to show people what their tactics are – selectively pick ONE item from a complete report and embellish it so that it appears damming. Here’s what she posted:
Firstly, you’ll note that they mention only ONE true statement. That’s pretty fancy slicing of what the report really says. You’ll also note that they provide no LINK to the PolitiFact site (so you can’t immediately verify the statement) and you’ll also note that they show no comparable number of “true” statements made by their Lord and Master, Donald Trump. Wonder why? It’s because Trump comes off being PROVEN the LIAR that he truly is – the point here is that you shouldn’t use something like this unless a comparison to your candidate comes off looking good. Following are screen captures from PolitiFact (as of 4/12/16) of both Ted’s report and Trumps – and I’m confident enough to post links to both so what I show here can be verified as TRUE.
COMPARE THEM FOR YOURSELF:
Isn’t it only FAIR to COMPARE the two gentlemen? Isn’t Donald Trump always whining about fairness? Why would someone show only a reference to Cruz having made only ONE truthful statement? That thing that they posted notes 51 statements – it must be quite old – the rating today (4-12-16) shows 105 statements. Could it be that they wanted to give a (FALSE) impression that Cruz is a liar? Well, wonder of wonders, if one looks at the above ratings, one sees that Trump is far and away the bigger LIAR of the two. Why wouldn’t someone supposedly interested in honesty want the TRUTH known? Here are links to both so you can verify that what I’ve posted here is TRUE. Here is Trump’s LINK. And here is Cruz’s LINK.
And one more little measure of which of the two candidates is the REAL LIAR is this: FactCheck.org awarded Donald Trump their “King of Whoppers” award. Here’s what they had to say about Donald Trump:
“It’s been a banner year for political whoppers — and for one teller of tall tales in particular: Donald Trump. In the 12 years of FactCheck.org’s existence, we’ve never seen his match. He stands out not only for the sheer number of his factually false claims, but also for his brazen refusals to admit error when proven wrong. But this year the evidence is overwhelming and, in our judgment, conclusive. So, for the first time, we confer the title ‘King of Whoppers.‘”
Now you’ve seen the results of two fact-checking organizations looking into which candidate is the bigger liar. The results are clear. The LIAR IS DONALD TRUMP.
The most satisfying thing about this is that the readers of Pesky Truth know the TRUTH, those that frequent that other blog don’t. They’re so pumped full of Trump’s lies they’re oblivious to the truth – let’s let them stay that way – after all, “ignorance is bliss,” so they’ll remain blissful in their ignorance.
