Bowling Green Massacre was Committed by Two Iraqi Refugees Obama Fast Tracked.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/03/politics/conway-bowling-green/index.html

"I bet it's brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. It didn't get covered."

Apparently we were all wrong.

I do hope that all our trumpsuckers will pray for the victims of this massacre. It's a disaster. Terrible. We should ALL be praying for the victims instead of focusing on this silly stuff like repealing Dodd-Frank.
Let us bow our heads.
So Cheato can cut them off, ISIS-style.

Seriously, folks - the "high road" has been closed by an avalanche of scumbaggery. It's time to start creating our OWN "alternative facts".
Have y'all heard about Cheato's payments to Joseph Kony for 8 year old male sex slaves?

NO???

You better share it, tweet it, shout it from the rooftops, so people can KNOW!!

It is as if the Republicans are looking to undo everything from the last 8 years... of course, it'll take longer to lose those jobs back to a bad economy, but they are working on it.

"As if"?
It's "as if" they think their base is so abysmally stupid that they won't notice their wages going down, billionaires getting richer and jobs getting more scarce.
Of course they're probably right about that...

Are we at a point where American media is so devolved and propaganda so prevalent that a significant number of Americans have no concept of reality? I think so.

Seems there was no such thing as far as we can see called the Bowling Green Massacre. However would someone be so stupid as to make something up that is so false and could backfire within seconds? Strange indeed.

Backfire? How?

Right now, if you Google "Bowling Green massacre," all the hits are for pieces calling it out as fiction. But just wait a year. It will soon become an article of faith on the conservative email network that hundreds died in the Bowling Green massacre, complete with before-and-after pictures from Google Earth of the Baptist church that was left a smoking crater in the aftermath.

Do not for a second think that this wasn't deliberate. Conway knows that millions will hear about the Bowling Green massacre, but only thousands are likely to hear that it was just made up. And those thousands will all be liberals who read the New York Times and are never going to vote for Trump anyway.

Since when has making stuff up about Obama ever backfired on Republicans?

Apparently it didn't get covered. Because we've never heard of it before... including the families of the "victims". We are two weeks into this Admin and it is already out of hand. The Electoral College was created to prevent this. Thanks partisan fuckholes!

I'm curious Alex Jones' take on the "Bowling Green massacre". He says Sandy Hook was faked. Would he support a "fake event" as real?

Apparently she confused an attack with the arrest of two Iraqis in Bowling Green for supporting Al Qaida.

Two Iraqi refugees in U.S. charged in terrorism-related case

Former Iraqi Terrorists Living in Kentucky Sentenced for Terrorist Activities

Kentucky Terror Case: Two Iraqis Charged With Supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq
ABC News said:
They were indicted for allegedly providing assistance to Al Qaeda in Iraq and attempting to send weapons overseas. The men were living in the United States and had been granted refugee status, despite their insurgency activities in Iraq and their role in attacking U.S. troops.
So indeed, these were Iraqi insurgents cum terrorists, and they did come to the US as "refugees". So the much touted vetting process for those who claim refugee status is not that airtight after all.
I mean, how the hell do insurgents who attacked US troops get granted "refugee status" to begin with? Too bad Conway misspoke, because she did point to the real problem with the refugee resettlement program.

You should try reading those articles you linked.

From the first one:

Alwan was admitted into the U.S. in 2009 even though his fingerprint was found in 2005 on an unexploded roadside bomb that was set to blow up a U.S. convoy in Iraq, according to court documents. His print was loaded into a Defense Department database. But when he applied for U.S. refugee status, a search of that database was not yet a part of the application process.

So they got in through a hole in the net that has already been corrected, with the feds keeping tabs on them since they arrived. The article also points out that in light of this hole, most of these refugees have undergone a second vetting just in case. At no point was America threatened by unknown Islamic terrorist sympathizers.

Very understandable. FOR A FUCKING PAID SERIAL LIAR.

Never. That's why I'd appreciate it if everyone here would post as much as possible about
Cheato's child-sex payments to Joseph Kony.

No error. Cheato's mouthpieces lie upon command. And it works.
We don't see a lot of commotion about Cheato trying to get church money into his party coffers, do we?

No. What Kellyanne said are the alternative facts. You have your marching orders. Why are you disputing them?

The very least we can do is send our Thoughts and Prayers for the victims of this terrible event.

"Our Father with cars in heaven
Hollow be thy frame
Thy sinkhole come
Thy wheels be spun
On asphalt at 7-11.
Vrooomen!"

No. She made an error. It would be scraping the barrel to suggest she deliberately lied on this.

Nope. It was overt and intended just like the lie about Obama banning Muslims, made at the same time. Every time she and Spicer open their mouths with another lie at Cheato's direction, there is something of actual import from which they are attempting to distract the press. If you have not listened to her delivery of those lies, you should do so - then come back here and explain how you reached such a stupid, counter-factual conclusion about it.

Are you sure? I don't think Kellyanne has told you what to think yet, so you may want to avoid climbing out on that limb, lest you have to offer a retraction when she does get around to providing further marching orders.

What? We are expected to believe that a person with a history of propagating outrageous lies was, for once, merely making an error?

An error is saying six times nine is forty two; or that Mombassa is the capital of Kenya.

One does not accidentally make a public statement about a recent massacre in ones home country that never actually happened. It's a bare faced lie, and your attempt to dismiss it as a mere error is laughable, as well as being both sad and stupid.

No. She made an error. It would be scraping the barrel to suggest she deliberately lied on this.

Her quote was:

"President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered," Conway said.

And now she claims she meant to say "Bowling Green terrorists." But her statement wouldn't make sense if "Bowling Green Massacre" was replaced by "Bowling Green terrorists." But even allowing that the statement was an unintentional mistake and that her excuse was just clumsily stated, she still is wrong/lied that Obama put a ban on refugees.

...and ya gotta love how she used her fabricated alt-fact to slam the media; "it didn't get covered".
Now WP, I know it's a strain, but try to visualize; she knew about the two Iraquis. She knew that the massacre they committed wasn't covered AT ALL by the media. She knew that there was no kefuffle about a massacre not being covered by the media. What, in your orange, fevered imagination could make you think she actually thought there had been a massacre, and that Obama had put a ban on refugees? Are you drunk, or do you thing Kellyann Con-way has been reading too many of her own alternative facts?
I guess the question is this:

Do you, whichphilosophy, think that
a) she's an inveterate liar-for-hire, or
b) that she is a bumbling incompetent ignorant fool who is also Cheato's advisor?

Yeah, forgot that one. She was also wrong/lied that there was no news coverage, even if we allow she meant the actual story. She even tweeted a link to a story that covered it!

Massacre verses no massacre. That is an error in the sense of saying the Cleveland Browns won the Super Bowl in 2013. While mass killings are not uncommon enough in the US, it hasn't gotten to the point where mistakes about whether a massacre happened or not can be considered an honest mistake.

To put it simply, there are no "masterminds" if there is no event.

Plus it is worth remembering that President Mussolini ran on the platform of "everything the Obama administration did is wrong and destroyed the country," making their excuse of "well Obama did it so it must be okay" an odd choice.

Then there is also the chance that what they're doing is lying to people about how refugee bans are perfectly normal and they're not doing anything extraordinary.

:hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical:

So what's your take, Swizzle?
a) she's an inveterate liar-for-hire, or
b) she is a bumbling incompetent ignorant fool who is also Cheato's advisor?

Please do share. :)

She said "massacre" instead of "terrorist".
She also said "masterminds".

"the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre"

There is no such thing as a mastermind of an attack that never happened. She didn't misspeak, she had no clue that nothing actually happened.

Meet John Bluman, the mastermind of the greatest novel never written.

Again, she said:

Now let's fix that by swapping out that one word:

"President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green terrorist. Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered," Conway said.

Most people don't know about the masterminds behind the Bowling Green terrorist?
