Democrats “absolutely must boycott this absurd, insane, sickening, repulsive, shameful, and at the same time shame-less circus,” read an article at the Daily Beast last Wednesday. While you may be forgiven for assuming that the author was referring to the Obama administration, he actually was describing the upcoming hearings on the Benghazi investigation, which the article bluntly calls “bullsh*t.” That’s because progressives are rallying now in a desperate effort to dismiss Benghazi as a joke and the hearings themselves as a waste of time.
From the beginning, when four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens were killed in a terrorist assault in Libya in 2012, the administration did its level best to downplay the attack and divert responsibility for the murders to a scapegoated “Islamophobic” filmmaker and his hilariously inept, obscure YouTube video dramatizing the life of Islam’s prophet Muhammad.
But unlike the lapdog media, the right refused to accept the administration’s whitewashed narrative, so now that the left is feeling the heat from hearings to be chaired by bulldog South Carolina Republican Representative Trey Gowdy, they are naturally going on the offensive (when has the left ever gone on the defensive?). That means reaching for the most effective weapon in their arsenal: ridicule. Remember, this administration’s guru Saul Alinsky counseled that “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” It is simultaneously a defensive and offensive strategy.
Political commentator and consultant Donna Brazile, for example, mocked on Twitter that “The Republicans are hyping the Benghazi hearings like they are about to launch a new TV series: what should we call this?” One Twitter respondent called her tweet “a horrifying display of arrogance and disrespect for the dead.” Another jabbed back that the show should be called “Truth andConsequences.”
Missouri Democrat Representative Stacey Newman got into the act, sending out the cutesy tweet that she was “thinking of saying ‘Benghazi’ while debating tomorrow on the House floor. Just to see what happens.” This is a woman who asserts in her Twitter bio that she is most “obsessive” about “saving lives due to gun violence” – unless they are American lives and Islamic guns, apparently. Then it’s just funny.
When there is so much 'back-lash' about a congressional hearing . . . .

I was watching MSNBC the other day to get a feel for how their political talk shows report events. Interesting, and disgustingly, what I heard was all one sided to the left filled with half truths, and outright lies. The "moderatori" functoned not to moderate, but to steer the propaganda I was listening to. The subject was Benghazi. The comments made were that ALL documents about Benghazi have been turned over and inspected, and that the Republicans were only making his a political move. The speakers failed to mention that any documents with applicable information to clarify the subject had been blacked out so that the only thing readable were the names and e-mail addresses of the person receiving those e-mails. The group hammered away about how dishonest the Republicans are, when in effect, the group were the people lying. Then I began wondering about how many people watching that show would be stupid to believe these idiots? Must be a lot because they keep voting for the very people slowly destroying this country.
msnbc is a bunch of libtard sheeple minions. I can't stand to even see anything on it when I'm flipping channels. The biggest losing scum like sharptonian and softball are being paid big money to cry and be olblameas useful idiots. I give you credit for being able to hold your stomach to watch it, because I can't stand any of em!
