Facebook Liberals Are Strangely Silent
Vanity | HIDEK6

Posted on 09/12/2012 4:00:05 PM PDT by HIDEK6

You all surely have liberal Facebook "friends" who constantly spam you with news of obama or criticisms of conservative principles.

Well, my liberal weenie "friends" have been strangely silent about the muslim escalation of the war against Christianity evidenced by the murder of our ambassador in Libya and the sacking of our embassy in Cairo.

Don’t worry, they’ll be back as soon as they get their DNC talking points, on how to blame it all on Bush.

I have one self-claimed “Ron Paul fan” (actually a liberal if you read everything she posts) who was shocked and horrified that Romney made a statement before Obama did- claimed it was “disrespectful to the office of the President” for a challenger to dare speak before Messiah Obama did.

Maybe they are finding out that this whole mess was pre-planned and a manufactured crises.
Come to find out ? that Mohammad movie has been on YouTube since July.
Also ? it was a screening on Eygptian TV.

All this was coordinated and pre-planned by the Muslim protesters, the main stream media and God knows who else to try to achieve the desired effect by it has badly backfired on them.
Now they are running for cover hoping not to get caught.

Noticed how all of this was coordinated ? even the trap that the media tried to spring on Romney in that News conference making Romney look bad being critical of Mr. Obama.

Main Stream Media lied and some people actually died.

I asked my most liberal FACEBOOK friend what he thought of all of this. he said, “I am waiting to hear all the facts.”. I responded “They MURDERED THE US AMBASSADOR. What else would you like to know?”

Liberalism is a mental illness of loathing and self-hatred.

They are very quiet.
After I posted some very harsh stuff, this particular “friend” said the president was right to apologize.
I let my other FB friends rip him a new one for about a dozen posts when he deleted his reply.
Otherwise a nice guy, yet he is the most ignorant political person I know.

My experience is that liberals are to be scorned, shunned and minimized, bot empowered and justified by continued ‘friendship’ on FB or IRL.

My experience also tells me that people doing so should either reevaluate their ‘friendships’ or admit they are part of America’s current problem.

Yeah, Obama’s Arab Spring has certainly won us a lot of new friends in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Hussein the Moron continues to blow the razzberry at Israel, our only true and long-time ally in that part of the world.

If this weren’t so serious, we might start looking for Abbot and Costello to play a role.

I am still waiting for my liberal FB friends to weigh in.

I think they are waiting for the DNC to get its talking points in line before they start spouting off.

I think they’re quiet for obvious reasons.

But 4 years of liberals getting their asses kicked has to get old. Sometimes I wish I didn’t have a FB but it allows for a kind of grass roots debate that I think liberals can’t handle in the long run.

I love these self proclaimed liberal Ron Paul fans.They only like him because of pot.

I was always quick to remind, if he got his way,he was going to dismantle a big portion of the gov’t and I fully supported it.It shows how single minded these people are.

If that’s all we need to do then we should legalize pot for 20 years and let them get stoned while we dismantle this beast.

Well, she’s not here, but Frantzie was right. Her scream was for everyone to quit watching the news and toss the cable $$ back into the household budget.

I liked Frantzie. Great financial commentary. Had relative(s) that fought at Lepanto.

"that Romney made a statement before Obama did"

Except, IIRC, he didn't. He waited, then made his statement.

A couple of local blogs I frequent are usually rife with liberals supporting anything opposite of conservatism.

Today, it’s crickets.

You may be correct. It looks like Hillary made the first statement 'received by The Associated Press at 10:08 p.m.,' then 'at 10:24 p.m., a Romney spokeswoman lifted the release restriction on the Republican's statement, and it was widely published,' followed much later by 0's first statement at '7:21 a.m. Wednesday, the next morning.

One question should be: why did 0 wait so long before even making his statement to begin with, and why no mention whatever of the Cairo incident?

"I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens," Obama said in his first statement at 7:21 a.m. Wednesday, the next morning.

They also have been strangely quiet about the movie 2016. I figured that they would be screaming from the rafters about it. But then it is what they would like to have happen to the U.S. so perhaps that is the reason for their silence.

I don’t have any liberal FB friends. I do, however, have a few uber-liberal family members who, for the past 6 months have chosen to remain silent rather than attempt to defend their socialist hero. I imagine they are quite busy with private messaging among themselves but their refusing to even attempt to defend Zero speaks volumes.

I’m even more surprised that none of the Hollywood liberals are defending the filmmaker’s right to artistic expression. They sure were all for free speech when that documentarian made that movie about killing Pres. Bush.

Good point about the lack of a statement on Cairo.

It's as though they are allowing the Embassy's statement to stand.

As far as I can tell, 0's only statement on the Cairo incident was the one distancing the WH from the statement made by the embassy; as of yet there appears to be no actual statement about the Cairo incident itself, only one about the incident in Libya.

Maybe he'll say something on the Letterman Show...

The left is keeping the google hits down.

every time someone writes GO SEE 2016 it registers on google bing etc.

it is shunning and search engin manipulation.

The AP does it by goebling the headlines.

I think (though I could be wrong) that the only thing the WH said regarding Cairo was that the statement hadn't been cleared by Washington.

I don't think he said if he agreed or disagreed with it. Thus, it stands.

I'm not sure that Hillary Clinton made a statement about Cairo either.
