Here’s how the final “Gigantic ***holes” conclusion was made.
Fact-Checking Republican Humor
PolitiFact’s fact check against Senator Cruz was the first piece of data used in our study.
For all the partisan reasons we’ve come to expect, PolitiFact’s W. Garner Selby published a no-win, reputation-damaging “fact check” against Senator Cruz over a joke that was obviously meant to be intentionally hyperbolic in order to illustrate a larger point.
Here is the Cruz joke PolitiFact rated as “mostly false”:
Here, we have Thanksgiving, we have Christmas, we have the 4th of July. Every year in Iran, they celebrate death to America day, which is the anniversary of Iran in the 1970s taking Americans hostage.
In order to come to the conclusion that Cruz’s morally clarifying piece of humor was a lie, PolitiFact scoured news archives and hassled no less than five “academic authorities” to see if there is an official “Death to America” holiday in Iran.
What PolitiFact discovered is that like that road-crossing chicken and that saucy farmer’s daughter, there is no official Death to America holiday in Iran.
At this point our study found only that PolitiFact was run by “pedantic left-wing gotcha trolls.”
Democrats Have Also Used ‘Mostly False’ Humor To Make Larger Points
Like Senator Cruz, Breitbart News discovered that Democrats use humor to make political points.
Like Senator Cruz, Breitbart News found that when fact-checked humor used by Democrats does
They had to fact check a joke?
Too bad they won’t apply the same diligence to the criminal activities of King Putt and his accomplices.
Crass, but brilliant.
Everyday is Death to America day in Iran.
And in every Islamic dominated country.
And in every Mosque in the world.
And in the White House! ValJar insists on it.
But the dems don’t like anyone to know that?
Tough stuff traitors!
Sounds like PolitiFart is having to scrape some barrels to come up with their digs.
Rookie mistake. If he’d just said “Death to America chant” he’d have been 100% accurate and not had to rely on someone “getting” his humor:
Methinks the good Senator is getting under someone’s skin...
These people just continue to prove how terrified they are of Ted Cruz even thinking about running for President.
It’s anything but factual.
But I must tell you that I have enjoyed both a saucy chicken and a road-crossing farmer's daughter.
“PolitiFact” is the trash spawn of the far left wing rag Tampa Bay Times, formerly the St. Petersburg Times.
Not hard to believe. American leftists have got to be the biggest bunch of whining biotches ever.
