The Problem With Republican Talking Points

I am going to repeat myself again today out of frustration and maybe someone new will hear me, finally. This is the problem I see with the Republican talking points. They think they are so superior that they make themselves obvious as to how misguided stupid that they really are. Saying that they are misguided or misinformed is too kind now. I know better. I am not going to be kind. This sucks. Dick Cheney is trying to attack the president as if he has any credibility, after sending us to war in Iraq because of his old grievances with Saddam Hussein, based on the lies that A) Saddam was responsible for the 9/11 attack at the WTC and B) that Saddam was in possession of materials needed to build atomic bombs. We all know now, if we have been paying attention, that this was a definite LIE and that they had the intention of going to war and invading seven countries in 5 years before the attack ever happened. Anyone who doesn't believe this needs to watch this video:

This is the situation. They lie and repeat the lie. That is called "propagating" an idea. That is the heart of the word "propaganda". To all Republicans, I have some definitions that you need to know.

1) fact [fakt]
1. something that actually exists; reality; truth:Your fears have no basis in fact.
2. something known to exist or to have happened:Space travel is now a fact.
3. a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true:Scientists gather facts about plant growth.

2) fab·ri·ca·tion [fab-ri-key-shuhn]
1. the act or process of fabricating; manufacture.
2. something fabricated, especially an untruthful statement: His account of the robbery is a complete fabrication.
2. See fiction.

Okay, Republicans, do you see the difference?  WE DO!  I have tried to excuse your petty arguments by telling myself you were misinformed but given facts that refute your arguments and prove them to be what is synonymous with "fabrication" the word "fiction", then, it's simply a matter of either you are lying or stupid, you decide which it is. 
We are all tired of your "manufactured" crises that you try to say is a "scandal worse than Watergate", which have all been proved to be wrong and another fabrication. 
Repeating a lie doesn't make it true. Calling it a "talking point" doesn't make it true, it's still not the truth. And on the off chance that you are just stupid and haven't actually self deluded yourself into believing your own fabrications, then, you need to sit down and shut the fuck up because no one wants to hear you lie, again, and act confident about what you are saying. Lying while acting confident doesn't make your lie any more valid.
Now, one more time, if you actually are this stupid, then, I have a quote from you which I will repeat again. Please read it and understand what it signifies.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way though our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." Isaac Asimov
That includes rich white people, including the ones with manners and wearing expensive clothing that attend a religious organization's meetings. 
Those of you who are so afraid that the world we live in isn't going to become "Leave it to Beaver" land, where everyone is white and lives in a two story house with a mom who is perfect and a dad who is wealthy and principles that are just common sense with no violence or anger that ever becomes obvious, and the biggest problems their kids face is how to treat other kids who might not be as smart as they are and there are no gangs, drug problems, suicide, or crime, then you are delusional. 
Some people confuse that with the words "in denial". I will explain the difference. 
Being in denial is when you see a problem and say to yourself, "I don't want to face that", and turn away, refusing to see anything that makes you uncomfortable. 
Being delusional is when you look at a problem and don't see it as a problem. You believe that you can make it work for you without having to suffer the consequences that everyone else faces. Never going to happen! Give it up!
