Remember When Ronald Reagan Was in Congress?… Yeah, You’re Not Alone

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, March 1, 2014, 1:10 PM

The Democrat Party tweeted this out yesterday.

They want to raise the minimum wage like when Reagan was in Congress.
Except that Ronald Reagan never was in Congress.

You know, sometimes, despite the intended message of the film “Idiocracy” some days it doesn’t seem that far from reality. It’s as if getting elected to a high office has a deleterious effect on your intellect.

Remember when Ronald Reagan shot a man in Reno?

Just to watch him die...?

No doubt that whoever sent out that tweet is a college graduate.

This is simply more proof that US History is being grossly neglected in favor of useless courses in things like gender studies, ethnic studies, and other pointless courses in social engineering that only worsens the problems they endeavor to ameliorate.

Isn’t it strange how these Democrats know so little about the president that they consider such a demonically evil man?

I guess it is easier to hate a man who you only know by hearsay and legend.

One can only ascertain it is as big as the coming day. Too bad, Music is her name. Ben was a bit more lucky with the ladies and rear he visited Music in France more than twenty times. That is according to Ben’s tweets. Twenty times ... Music must have been some more kind of a lady!

I did see this pretty depressing tweet from someone who shouldn’t be smarter than a politician but clearly is.

@DaveMustaine

A soldier in Afghanistan wrote me on a brown paper bag. Humbled, all I could think of was…he doesn’t even have paper to write home.

There is no intellectual difference in the logic behind “Brawndo makes plants grow” and “Global warming caused the “polar vortex”.

None.

But these are the people that took a fictional book called ‘1984’ and used it as a handbook for governance. Their whole state of being is based in one fantasy or another so Reagan being in congress is ‘their truth’ and thus ‘true’.

If it comes to a collapse, I am GREATLY looking forward to the feral libs enslaving the pajamaboys in a Thunderdome scenario.

It’s more likely than people want to admit. Look at Bosnia for what will happen to libs in that sort of world. And since they will be responsible for it, I will take extreme pleasure in their karma.

No. they are not retarded. They know their voters mostly have room temperature IQs, so they put out something stupid like this and the the low Information voters eat it up. Like Harry Reid calling all the folks that complained about losing their insurance liars. Outside of Fox (Greta), who is challenging him?

"If you’ve ever told your Republican uncle how Obamacare helps your community, replied to a nasty chain-email with a link to a well-researched article, or kept a picture of the President’s birth certificate on your phone to whip out at a moment’s notice, then you’re already a Factivist.

Democrats succeed when people on the ground are empowered with information (we’ll take care of that part) and are mobilized to get that information out to their communities (that’s where you come in). With the tools you’ll get here, you’ll be able to push back against Republican misinformation and defend our Democratic brand."

These days the truth is often just a mouse click away.

The problem is that the vast majority of liberals will never choose to click. Who knows what might happen if they stepped outside the liberal bubble?
