From the Washington Post to The Atlantic to Buzzfeed to to Think Progress to Business Insider to veteran journalist Christiane Amanpour, the touching photo of former Rep. Gabby Giffordss handwritten testimony in favor of stricter gun control spread across social media like wildfire.
Just one problem: It wasnt her handwriting.

the childlike nature of Giffords's handwritten note is both beautiful and so so horribleLMAO!
All those using this woman, particularly her husband, should be ashamed of themselves.
Me n'my brother were little shrinky guys until we were about 11 or 12, so we had a long time of trying to fool the bus driver (whom I'm sure was more entertained than fooled), as my brother would take my hand (I was older by 2 ... maybe 7 or 8) and he would go up the steps one step at a time .. step up, bring the other next to it ... step up, bring the other next to it .. etc.) like he was brand new to walking and couldn't navigate the steps fluidly.
The bus was only a nickle, but we cheated anyway.
THAT'S what I reflected on as I heard Gifford's 'speech'
The haltingly slow read was painfully phony.
I know, I know .. she got shot in the head, but I remember she said a few words when she resigned her political seat and she spoke more fluidly then.
What the hell ... maybe the ride is only a nickle these days
It's OK because it "RAISED AWARENESS".
I wonder if they had any people appearing who had a loved one murdered by an illegal alien.
So we could call this, “fake but accurate.”
Simply disgraceful. he will use her to keep himself in the inner circle for the next 30 years. Disgusting.
Why? They've shamelessly done it before.
Once again, it wasn't about guns but evil people doing evil things.
I believe that "insanity" can never be a defense and that murder begets a sentence of execution or life without the possibility of parole.
Be aware...they are considering releasing Hinckley.
Perhaps some day the Left can come up with spokespersons who aren't brain-damaged, but then, they wouldn't be Liberals...
All these people are relentless and heartless bastards who are so maniacally driven by their need to control others, that there are no lows to which they will not stoop.
If they could find a way to get a surviving aborted fetus to describe the need for competent abortions, they would.
It’s exactly what you would see in the back rooms of communist propaganda workhouses...when I saw that interview - I disregarded it as genuine - liberals never are...
The pro-Obama MSM trotted out a fake photo claiming that it was Obama shooting skeet, but it was phony.
The Obama-phile state media will stop at nothing to circle the wagons around the usurper in chief.
The above image was published as genuine by New Republic.
But... I dare say, it looks an awful lot like this photo of him golfing...
We saw the newscast yesterday. They are parading around this poor severely injured woman like a trophy for their propaganda machine. It reeks of such evil I have no words to describe it.
Fauxtography at its finest!
I don’t really care that someone wrote it for her. What I found most interesting is the use of the term, “Now is the time”. Obama used the exact same phrase about 6 times in the first 2 minutes of his amnesty speech the other day.
Its a typical Alinsky style sloganeering dog whistle for the mush headed morons who support democrats and a direct descendant of “We can’t wait”.
I think he is disgusting!
At least she is still a responsible gun owner trying too keep guns out of the hands of the mentally impaired, just like her husband testified before the senate.
Yup, I make sure I have a golf glove hanging out of my pocket when I am shooting skeet. How STUPID does the SRM think we are in their love for 0 bummer.
fake but accurate
Stolen from Martin Luther King’s famous speech and the Emperor has used it many times in speeches. The man doesn’t come up with anything on his own. Everything about him is fake and/or stolen.
This is a case of the MSM building a cult of personality to further their goal of grabbing guns.
You could say "so what if she used notes". You would at least then be showing up the MSM hyperbole.
Except that under some of the proposed legislation, Gabby's own brain injury and medications might prohibit her from owning a firearm...
This was my point all along.
I need to work on my editorial skills.
LIEberals are, by definition, brain damaged!
Agree! Although the left thinks nothing of trotting out props for their propaganda.
Thought the same thing. Always wear golf shoes and carry a golf glove to shoot skeet....in 0Land.
Nobody is using her. She and him are both Democrats, that’s how Democrats operate.
I would agree did she not seem to have some possibly diminished capacities from being shot.
I got some good replies from the people I emailed those pictures to earlier.
