Because Wingnuts Never Check Sources

Something reminded me today of this video I made back in those heady days of August. It was a response to this video (via) by some teabaggers that featured a Thomas Jefferson "quote" about welfare. I've always been struck by the disinclination of wingnuts to perform even the most rudimentary fact checking when the fact or quote in question confirms their biases. Obviously it's not exclusively a rightwing phenomenon, but it does seem to me that there's an asymmetry.

Keep threading!
