First, a “news” story:
Baton Rouge, LA – Louisiana Governor and GOP presidential candidate, Piyush “Bobby” Jindal, 44, spoke with Phil Hemmer via satellite on Fox News’ Happening Now this morning to discuss the ever-growing Confederate flag controversy. However, it wasn’t Jindal’s opinion on what states should do about the flag that had people talking afterwords.
While discussing the historic South Carolina Senate vote to have the flag removed from statehouse grounds, Jindal told Hemmer, “Like the same-sex marriage issue, I believe this should be decided on by the states, not the courts. Let the people’s voices be heard. Like many others who hail from the great Creole state, the Confederate flag is a symbol of my heritage, and that heritage has nothing to do with racism or hate.”
It would seem Bobby is once again trying to put mileage between himself and his family’s immigrant past. It’s no secret that Jindal, the first Indian-American governor in US history, is uncomfortable in his own skin. For years now he has tried to distance himself from his Indian roots, and his remarks this morning are just the latest in a long line of bizarre statements and actions.
Good luck finding the video of that interview because it didn’t happen. It’s a bogus story. 100% F.A.K.E. It’s not even satire, it’s just a made up lie.
Ta Nehisi Coates got suckered in. Then when he was confronted with the truth he deleted his tweet and apologized. But that didn’t let Jindal off the hook.
“Ha ha, Palin is so stupid she thinks she can see Russia from her porch!”
“She never said that. It was Tina Fey on SNL that said it.”
“Well she’s stupid enough to say it!”
Today’s Progressives live in a world of caricatures and strawmen. Republicans are all stupid, racist, sexist, homophobic bigots who hate poor people. Anything that fits that narrative is believed and repeated. Anything that doesn’t fit that narrative is ignored.
And Progs are always right. Even when they are wrong. Because shut-up you racist!
