Tinfoil-Hat Lip Reading

A new Right-Wing Wingnut bit of hilarity is zipping around cyberspace.  It’s a clip from the National 9/11 Memorial Ceremony involving the American flag during a bagpipe tribute.  Michelle Obama leans over to her husband and says, “All this for a damn flag?”  Obama nods in a typical ‘Yes, dear’ bored husband response.


The First Lady disrespecting America’s flag?!  Well…er..there’s no sound in the video except the bagpipes.  And her lips are mostly covered by a post.  But some professor who supposedly reads lips said THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!

Oh my.  Well, I’ll let you decide if it’s true on the link below.  If you can’t quite see Ms. Obama saying that, add more tinfoil to your hat – lots more.

Typical Wingnut Objective Intro to the video.

    Prior to the mid-70s, the number of news sources was fairly low. You had the newspaper, maybe a weekly news magazine, and a half hour newscast. Unless you went to PBS, that was about it. Today you can immerse yourself in some type of news source all your waking hours if you’d like.

    Oddly enough, the average person was better informed in the old days. People tend to gravitate to sources that reflect their own personal prejudices and philosophy. Unfortunately, these sources have axes to grind; they withhold some information while spreading lies.

    More is sometimes less, and the ignorance of the average American compared to 40 years ago is a good example.
