I’ve Got a Few Words for These Moronic Anti-Hillary Clinton “Shoe Truthers”

Most of the time when I write about something, I try to maintain a decent amount of decorum.  Then there are those topics that are so ridiculous I just put my fingers on the keyboard and rant away.

This is going to be one of those topics, because these “shoe truthers” are some special kind of stupid.

How much of an idiot do you have to be to really believe that Hillary Clinton staged a woman throwing a shoe at her during a speech she was giving in Nevada?  If you’re going to stage some kind of spectacle to accomplish a “goal” of some sort, a heckler shouting something to set you up for a witty political response would make a heck of a lot more sense than some random woman throwing a shoe.

Then again, these are the people who believed a few months back that President Obama staged a fainting woman standing behind him while he was giving a speech about the Affordable Care Act.

The amount of conspiracies these people believe Democrats orchestrate is astounding.  Fake “Obamacare” enrollment, jobs numbers, fainting women, birth certificates, Benghazi and IRS coverups, Fast and Furious and now a woman throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton.

Rush Limbaugh somehow tried to tie this “staged” incident in with Benghazi (something about trying to make Benghazi people look crazy) and a Fox News columnist suggested Clinton staged it to seem more “presidential” considering Bush had a shoe thrown at him while he was in Iraq.

You know, because if you want to seem “presidential,” George W. Bush would definitely be the one you chose to mold some incident around.


This is why I just can’t take conservatives seriously.  They actually believe this ridiculous nonsense.  Because the ones pushing these idiotic conspiracies aren’t fringe right-wing blogs which most people have never heard.  Oh, no.  They’re mainstream conservative figures like Rush Limbaugh and random blowhards on Fox News (you know, the “most watched” cable news channel in the country).

But accusations like this remind me of the cheating partner who constantly accuses their significant other of cheating because they’re projecting what they’re capable of onto others.

Conservatives are so petty, so small minded and childish that they know they’re capable of staging such pathetic nonsense, so they believe others would as well.

While they continue to push conspiracy theories, trying to create stories out of nothing (Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS), they think Democrats will do the same thing by trying to fabricate a story by staging a woman throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton to accomplish some agenda that only makes sense in the minds of those ignorant enough to believe it.

You know, like conservative voters.
