For a year, every day, Fox news has worked with the Republican Party on a conspiracy theory with made up stories about Obama wanting to take away guns by giving criminals guns to take to Mexico - "Very clearly, they've made a crisis and they're using this crisis to somehow take away or limit people's second amendment rights," Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Cali.) said on "Hannity" tonight."
Over the last month, the Republicans have tried to mainstream the conspiracy theory, taking it so far as having a vote on contempt tomorrow, against the attorney general. Sadly, the Republicans should have kept preaching to the sheep that view Fox, as real news agencies are discovering there IS NO SCANDAL.
Darryl Issa, the committee chairperson, has admitted he doesn't have any evidence, but still believes that it is a conspiracy by Obama to take away second amendment rights - on Fox News Sunday: "Issa was asked whether he had evidence of a White House cover-up. "No, we don't," Issa said."
As foolish as this sounds, it's all crazier than that. You have to steel yourself and watch Fox once in awhile to understand what kind of crazy they are indoctrinating their viewers with.
Colbert said it best.
COLBERT: Yes, very clearly, Obama started this gun tracking program in 2006, when he hypnotized George Bush. Then he secretly ordered Attorney General Holder to order the Justice Department, to order the ATF to order gun shops to sell guns to Mexican drug cartels, and then lose track of them, thereby panicking Americans to gin up support for the draconian gun control measures that Obama has never introduced.
"Today, Congress founder Holder in contempt"
Colbert: "Shocking, Congress found someone who doesn't already hold Congress in contempt." Web Link
The Fox story of 2,000 guns going from the ATF to Mexican gangs is wrong.
The Fox story of "millions of dollars" of guns going from the ATF to Mexico is wrong.
The posters who referred to this under other threads, about this fantasy theory are being proved to be just more Fox flunkies.
This was the congress that said they would work on jobs. How many jobs are being created with the vote on the Attorney General tomorrow?
Please all your congress person and demand they work on JOBS.
