Conservatives routinely outright lie about the positions of liberals because they stand no chance in an honest comparison between conservative and liberal beliefs. Conservatives also tend to concentrate on scare tactics with their lies, knowing this is often effective with the low-information types of people who tend to vote for conservatives. Today Sarah Palin came out with a real whopper. AP reports:
Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said during a speech Friday that President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies would ban guns and ammunition if they could get away with it.
The former Alaska governor said in a speech to the National Rifle Association that political backlash is the only thing stopping Obama from gutting the Constitution’s right to bear arms. Palin said the public needs to stop Democrats in their tracks, starting with the November elections.
That’s half the argument. How much longer until she also warns that Democrats like Obama will not only take away their guns but take away their bibles?
