Jackson Launches Into Tirade Over Fake News Article

Jackson Launches Into Tirade Over Fake News Article July 8, 2014

Victoria Jackson launched into a tirade on her website on Thursday over an article in the National Report, which is an Onion-style satire site, that said President Obama was going to spend the 4th of July at a mosque and entertaining Muslims at the White House.

Obama will visit a mosque and host Muslim leaders at the White House on the 4th of July. Obama continues to slap America in the face and spit on her. I am outraged. If you’re not, you are uninformed. Releasing 5 top Muslim terrorists from Gitmo?!!!

ACT for America writes, “White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest announced today that President Obama will be visiting a Washington D.C. area Mosque on the morning of July 4th as a goodwill gesture to Muslim Americans. The name and location of the Mosque are currently being withheld for security reasons.”

“The President has long been criticized for being sympathetic towards Muslims and has even been accused of secretly being Muslim himself. His announcement to visit a Mosque on the morning of America’s most patriotic holiday will likely add to this criticism.”

“According to Earnest, following his visit to the Mosque, the President will host the traditional White House July 4th cookout. Several influential Muslim leaders have been invited to attend the cookout, as a further gesture of goodwill.”

If you’re not outraged over this, you’re uninformed! Or, ya know, you’re not a moron. The comments at the National Report site are also full of enraged wingnuts who fell for the story.

It is time for our Muslim President to be taken out of office. He will be the down throw (sic) of the USA…

ARE YOU F——-g KIDDING ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On the 4th !!!!! He’s going to a mosque of the religion that killed almost 3,000 Americans !!!!!!!! OMG, Beyond insane & cruel !!!

This is a SLAP IN THE FACE to the American soldiers who are right now in danger in the middle east , serving under his leadership. Worshipping and eating and fellowshipping with Muslims on the 4th of July! Why aren’t you worshipping and fellowshipping with your veterans or soldiers, Mr Commander and (sic) Chief!!!! Do you honestly think that “sucking up” to them will make them hate America less, or stop trying to destroy us??

WE DON’T WANT ANY MUSLIM’A IN OUR COUNTRY. THEY ARE ISLAMIC JEHADIST. THEY WILL STOMP OUT ALL OTHER RELIGIONS THAT DON’T ABIDE TO THE CORAN. WE NEVER HAD JEHAD MUSLIMS IN OUR COUNTRY LIKE THEY ARE SO MANY HERE SINCE OBAMA TOOK OFFICE. HE WNATS A ISLAMIC AMERICA. HIS WIFE IS A TRANNY AND HE IS A FAG. I FEEL SORRY FOR HIS KIDS. THEY MUST BE REALLY BRAIN WASHED AND FUVKED UP.

And it goes on and on like that. Funny stuff, really. Or it would be funny if those people didn’t vote.

    Is that where that came from??? I heard a caller on Michael Savage exploding over this & ‘Doctor’ Savage supported his outrage completely.

    Apparently as long as something is a lie then the REthugs automatically believe it.

    A cook-out during Ramadan.

    Yeah…what are they serving? Pulled pork?

  • Synfandel

    I’m not surprised that she was taken in by the National Report article, which is a pretty subtle Poe, in part because there were would actually be nothing wrong with President Obama hosting some eminent Muslims on July 4th. That being said, Ms Jackson’s reaction is hilarious. It makes me wonder whether she’s Poeing us. After all, one could reasonably imagine her having some familiarity with satire.

  • chilidog99

    Kevin, a ham is a leg, so pulled leg would be about right.

  • Releasing 5 top Muslim terrorists from Gitmo?!!!

    I bet she’s never even seen an episode of Top Muslim. Halal’s Kitchen, either.

  • Kevin Kehres

    @3: Sadly, it’s very clear that Victoria Jackson is that stupid.

    White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest

    I thought that name was part of the joke until I Googled and discovered the Josh Earnest is the name of the White House Press Secretary.

    I would have thought everyone got the story from this actual AP news story of the President visiting a Mosque in DC.

    Bush visits mosque, urges tolerance

    BY THE MICHIGAN DAILY

    Published September 17, 2001

    WASHINGTON (AP) President Bush visited a mosque and bought coffee for a cafeteria full of aides yesterday as he appealed to Americans to get back to everyday business and not turn against their Muslim neighbors. …

    I’m not surprised that a fake news article is being lambasted by a fake celebrity who uses fake intelligence to make fake points.

  • tbp1

    I will confess I was taken in by Andy Borowitz once before I got it that it was a satire. However, I’m pretty sure that before I went off on a public rant about whatever it was, I would have verified it from some other sources.

    After all, one could reasonably imagine her having some familiarity with satire.

    The more I see of her, the more I suspect she actually didn’t realize that SNL was comedy/satire. Supposedly Margaret Dumont didn’t realize she was the butt of the joke in those Marx Brothers routines.

    I blame the overuse of antibiotics. Clearly, Victoria has become victim of one of the several resistant strains of foot in mouth disease circulating around the country.

  • brucemartin@8:

    It’s totally different when Bush visited a mosque because after he left it, he was still white.

    As Molly Ivins would say, “Victoria Jackson is not bent over double with intellect.”

  • Conservatism is, at its heart, an intellectual movement.

    She got got. It doesn’t matter. She doesn’t care. It’s not about truth or fiction, it’s “Us verses Them”, where “Us” is “Good”, “Them” is “Evil”, and Obama is most definitely not one of “Us”.

    The closest you’ll get to an admission is, after a lengthy pause, “It’s fake…but it’s real”. And ten minutes later (or an hour, or the next day) they’re on to the next chain email and the cycle starts all over again.

  • I didn’t know anyone actually cared about her opinion. Her acting career seemed to be based upon the dumb blonde stereotype. I am not joking when I say that the first and last I had seen her was in UHF, and that was a long time ago.

    The more I see of her, the more I suspect she actually didn’t realize that SNL was comedy/satire. Supposedly Margaret Dumont didn’t realize she was the butt of the joke in those Marx Brothers routines.

    And Elizabeth Berkley thought Showgirls was a remake of All About Even and not the campy piece of trash that it was. However, I’d still trust Elizabeth Berkley to be a better political commentator than Victoria Jackson. Of course, Marcel the monkey from the first seasons of Friends would be a better political commentator than Jackson.

  • anubisprime

    Should not someone sort of like tell her it was a sort of like a spoof?

    Second thoughts..let’s not bother!

  • Where’s Emily Litella when you need her?

  • If you could harness the energy of the Burnin’ Stoopit that’s lodged between Vicky’s ears it would be one of our biggest “Trash to Energy” plants.

  • Trebuchet

    I think about 80% of the chain e-mails the wingnuts pass around originate with this “publication”. It’s probably funded by the Republican Party.

  • I don’t know which is more pathetic: that she launched a public tirade because she fell for a satire article, or that she actually thinks it would have been worth getting worked up about if it had actually been true. Independence Day is a holiday for *all* American citizens, regardless of their religion (or lack thereof).

    “If you could harness the energy of the Burnin’ Stoopit that’s lodged between Vicky’s ears it would be one of our biggest “Trash to Energy” plants.”

    In its way it’s a very polluting source of energy, unfortunately.

  • They fall for satires over and over again because they want to believe. Their critical faculties have been blunted by years of accepting stories over reality. so if a story says something that they want to hear, they don’t bother to do any fact checking.

  • vereverum

    The comments at the National Report site are also full of enraged wingnuts who fell for the story.

    How could they not know? I like National Report but always though the comments were part of the story i.e. generated by the NR people.

  • Next thing you’ll know, she’ll be outraged that LeBron James is announcing what team he’ll play for at a session of the UN General Assembly.
