MoveOn Ad Fact-Checked & Found Very Untruthful

The Fact Checker frisks MoveOn for actual weapons and finds the usual ultra-left pinhead blather, half-truths, and occasional outright lies.

The Washington Post "Fact-Checker" goes sentence by sentence through the text of the obnoxious ad and points out the various mis-statements, exaggerations, and other departures from the facts.

Out of one to four Pinocchio rating-system, with four being "Whoppers," MoveOn is charitably given THREE PINOCCHIOS, or
Significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions.

As the ad ran in the New York Times, which will print any leftist tract verbatim, this would be around average for any fact-checker.

But since the ad DID run in the NYT, it should be rated in Durantys rather than Pinocchios. Not the big-nosed Jimmy Durante, but the Stalin-loving Walter Duranty who won a Pulitzer Prize from the Stalin-loving Columbia School of Journalism back in the nineteen-thirties for covering Stalin's infamous brutal Purge Trials as a Crusade for Justice.

MoveOn is probably equally Marxist, but must watch its back as the Cold War didn't turn out the way a lot of its member/followers wanted it to end.

But, as Dr. Sanity notes, that doesn't stop MoveOn and the ultra-left from pursuing the overarching agenda Dr. Sanity outlines on her blog, with the attendant mass psychosis necessary to con the American people to elect a socialist-manque as POTUS.

But as always with the ultra-left, the truth of their agenda doesn't lie in the details, nor in the big picture, nor even in the endgame.

Indeed, Truth, as Dr. Sanity's chart graphically demonstrates, has nothing to do with it.
