Speaking of ACORN, have these videos been debunked due to editing or anything?
lie that Tibbs was spreading was exposed because their were other tapes available. We didn't have to rely only on Tibbs and the liars whose lies he repeats. The liars who made the ACORN tapes have not been investigated, and by now they may have destroyed the originals. I still hope there is an investigation, with subpoena powers, but it may be too late.
Tibbs did us all a great favor by demonstrating that the Republican party depends upon lies
to make its points. This case only requires that you be able to watch two versions of a video, unlike the "death panel" and "infanticide" lies which require the ability to read and comprehend in order to expose their falsehood. Tibbs has devoted himself to spreading lies for years, and in this case, as in others before, he has been caught out.
Tibbs doesn't care, because most conservatives will only see the version which he presents, and because he has long ago abandoned any allegiance to the truth. But there may be honest people with a Republican heritage who have not realized that the Republican party relies upon lies
. By spreading such brazen and obvious lies, Tibbs may cause honest people to reject the Republican talking points trumpeted daily on hate talk radio and television.
Not that he meant to.
This disposition to admire, and almost to worship, the rich and powerful,
and to despise or at least neglect persons of poor and mean conditions,
is the great and most universal cause of the corruption of our moral sentiments.
