On that “mistake” about a massacre
So about KellyAnne Conway and her ability to lie and then make more lies to defend the lie.
She said, on Thursday in an Interview with Chris Matthews that lasted an hour (something no Obama Administration or Bush 2 administration figure had been given at this point in their first terms), she was defending the “Muslim Ban” and said this:
“There was very little coverage. I bet it’s brand new information to people that Obama had a six month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and then were the masterminds behind the bowling green massacre.”
“I misspoke one word,” Pretendent iDJiT’s campaign manager-turned-presidential adviser told Fox News’s Howard Kurtz, according to a preview of a yet-to-air interview. “The corrections in the newspapers that are attacking me are three paragraphs long every day.”
She whines: “I misspoke one word.”
Conway was trying to refer to two Iraqi citizens living in Bowling Green who were arrested in 2011 and eventually sentenced to federal prison for attempting to send weapons and money to al-Qaeda in Iraq for the purpose of killing U.S. soldiers, according to a statement from the Justice Department.
Their arrest was widely covered.
The reason no coverage was given on a six month ban on Iraqi refugees by the Obama Administration was that there *never was a ban on Iraqi refugees* that was put in place for six months by them.
But she says she got one word wrong. She meant to say Terrorists.
Meaning that they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green Terrorists — or that they were the masterminds of their own effort even though she herself also notes that they were not radicalized until after they had been here — something that happens when people are significantly oppressed and maltreated, say by overt and rampant anti-immigrant sentiment and islamophobia with racism.
Which means that someone else radicalized them — the people who would really be the masterminds here. Meaning Al-Qaeda. Who are from Saudi Arabia.
So she was really trying to say that people from countries that the ban does not apply to were the masterminds behind terrorism that hasn’t happened yet.
Wait, she means terrorism that has happened already, which is why these nations, where no terrorist that has ever caused any harm to anyone in the US as an act of terror, were chosen.
So she did not misspeak by only one word. Because the statement makes no sense when you use the word she claims she was trying to use.
So she is, factually, defending two lies with another lie, which creates two additional lies she did not cover for in the process of using it.
She’s not very good at this.
Seems to be a trend for this administration: not being good at their jobs.
It is with grave sadness and absolute seriousness that I have to mark myself as killed at the Bowling Green Massacre.
unfortunately, I am now both undead and amortal, and I have a hunger for orange hued things.
