Neil Bourgoin of Jay, Maine

Post by T on Sun Mar 15, 2015 10:48 am

It's scary and sad that so many people believe this sort of drivel.  Right-wing, Tea Party wackos, like Candy, perpetuate it.  They twist and turn, make bold, outlandish statements with so much confidence, that their lock-stepping followers believe them without question.  I learned long ago if you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.

Here's an example:


Neil Bourgoin, Jay, Maine: "President Barack Obama and his administration deliberately distort and often try to make the public believe that the United States is a democracy. Obama also said, "We are not a Christian nation." Both are deceivingly untrue."

President Obama never said, as Mr. Bourgoin wants you to believe, "We are not a Christian nation."  Here's what Obama actually said on June 28, 2006 (as delivered): "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.".

The right-wing wackos and the Tea Party nuts have been spreading a chain e-mail since 2006 that drops the key word "just" which changes the entire meaning of what Obama actually said.

Apparently, Neil Bourgoin of Jay, Maine received the e-mail (or only watches Fox News), and never bothered to check for its accuracy.  Why would he?  It came from his fellow Tea Party/Republican brothers.  Anything they say regarding Obama is the absolute truth, and he must stay in lock-step.

BTW, the United States is a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy.  I hear the right-wing use the term "Democracy" far more often than the left-wing, especially when attacking Obama with regard to his use of executive powers.
