The right-wing loons were right

A recent letter from Wayne Thorson enjoyed calling people on the right “loons.” Being the most visible loon, I’ll use Glenn Beck often.

Beck had warned early-on that Osama bin Laden would attack the US. On Sept. 11, 2001, loony Beck was proven right.

McCain, Beck and other loons warned of the mortgage crisis. Democrats like Barney Frank dismissed it and said that even if there were a problem taxpayers wouldn’t have to bail anything out. But in 2008 and 2009 the collapse hit and taxpayers got hit for bailouts. Loons were right.

Immediately after the Benghazi attack, Beck said the President Barack Obama administration was lying about it being about an Internet video. It has also been shown by military experts and special former special operations personnel that the administration lied about not being able to get help to Benghazi. This administration also lied when it said it hadn’t gotten any requests for more security. The loon was correct again.

Beck was laughed at when he warned this administration would target certain groups. Now we have learned the IRS targeted only conservative and Jewish groups, and any groups teaching about the constitution and Bill of Rights. To date, no progressives, liberals or Muslim groups were targeted. Loons correct again.

Loons warned that bureaucratic Obamacare could lead to unfair application of health services dependent on race, political affiliation etc. We now know the IRS has done just that, and it’s the IRS that will administer Obamacare.

Beck warned that this administration would try to silence critics. The Obama administration has gone after Beck, Fox, Associated Press reporters and has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other presidents combined.

Before Obama was elected the first time, looney Beck warned that Obama was far-left and would bring far-left individuals into Washington. Obama did indeed bring in leftists, with Van Jones (communist) being the most visible. The loon was right.

Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act prove that Attorney General Eric Holder and Thomas Perez and others in the Justice Department “do not believe that voting rights should be equally applied to all races, including whites.” A headline in Judicial Watch, “Inspector General Confirms Lies, Racism Rampant Inside Holder Justice Department.” Loons said this could happen.

Slightly off-topic, families of fallen SEAL Team VI heroes released video on how military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes. According to a certified translation, this cleric disparaged in Arabic these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. Loons have been warning of seeming favoritism of Islam over Christianity. If our fallen servicemen and women can’t be buried with the words of the God they believe in, then what are the fighting for?

Wayne also stated the U.S. is a democracy by blasting a previous letter that said the U.S. is a Republic. Wayne, take 60 seconds to Google the subject. Then ask yourself who the loon is.
