Alan Grayson's Campaign of Brazen Lies

Posted by Dave Blount at September 28, 2010 2:06 PM

Democrats are going to miss Alan Grayson when voters rise up and throw him out of office. They've sunk to the point that without him, they may not be able to hit new lows. With Grayson around, that's never a problem. His latest outrage:

This comes straight from the Michael Moore school of telling lies by taking quotations out of context. Grayson took the "submit to me" quote from this:

"Find a verse. I have a verse for my wife; I have verses for my wife. Don't pick the ones that say, um, she should submit to me. That's in the Bible, but pick the ones that you're supposed to do. So instead, love your wife, even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it, as opposed to wives submit yourself to your own husband. She can pray that if she wants to, but don't you pray it."

That is, his opponent Daniel Webster was saying the exact opposite of what Grayson was trying to make it look like he said. This crosses the line between propaganda and flat out lying.

Grayson also brazenly lied about Webster's military service by claiming he dodged the draft because "he doesn't love this country." Actually, Webster was disqualified from service for medical reasons.

What can you expect of a guy who has proven himself to be an unhinged moonbat again and again and again and again and again and again?

Guy Benson floats the idea that there is a conspiracy afoot:

Part of me wonders if Grayson is actually living out an elaborate hoax. Might he be a brilliant conservative operative masquerading as a deranged, mean-spirited Left-wing creep who deliberately tailors his antics to offend moderate voters, discredit the TV and radio hosts who promote his over-the-top garbage, and ritually highlight the double standard conservatives face vis-a-vis the media's civility police?

Nah. Never ascribe to conservative cleverness what could better be explained by liberal psychosis. Hopey Change means the Left has a chance to show us all what it's really made of.
