See, Hannity made a tweet bashing Obama for his supposed hypocrisy on taxes, and was no doubt expecting a flood of agreement from his followers. It didn't exactly work out that way (click to enlarge):
Yes, instead of getting behind him, his followers turned their ire to Hannity himself for supposedly (I swear, you can't make this shit up) protecting the evil, socialist, Kenyan muslim by not reporting on Benghazi enough.
Let that sink in for a moment. Sean Hannity, no seriously, SEAN FUCKING HANNITY, for reasons that have yet to be clarified, is doing his best to somehow help Barack Hussein Bin Laden Obama! We're so far down the rabbit hole at this point that we've already passed China.
This wasn't limited to just Hannity either. His own colleague, Bill "Papa Bear" O'Reilly, also wasn't able to escape the wrath of these, for lack of a better term, "people":
I have to say, this must be a part of that 11th dimensional chess stuff I keep hearing about. Apparently, both O'Reilly and Hannity have worked diligently over the past 15 years to give the impression that they're immense right-wing assholes, only to suddenly turn around and switch sides to Obama right at the cusp of Benghazi-gate. This was a flimflam a decade in the making that could only have been orchestrated by a Macchiavellian mastermind like Obama.
Also, can I just say that it never ceases to amaze me how the right wing media is constantly able to rile up their dimwitted followers? The outrage over Benghazi-gate in particular is quite fascinating to me. They've managed to convince their viewers that there were some shady, underhanded things being committed by the White House. Whether Obama was laughing maniacally as he intentionally delayed assistance to the embassy, or hell, coordinated the attack himself, these right-wingers just know that he was doing something nefarious. It's gotten to the point that these people are more outraged at Obama's 9/11 than the original 9/11!
Sure, there were morons rampant at townhalls during the health care debate, constantly invoking Godwin's Law and telling the government to keep their hands off their medicare, but this is a bit different. At least with HCR, you could make the excuse that right-wingers were indoctrinated for years about the evils of government run health care. With Benghazi-gate, however, this is something that these fuckers wouldn't have given two shits about in any other context. I cannot think of any remotely similar phenomenon happening on the left, where our kingpins like Bill Maher and Rachel Maddow tell us to be furious about something that we otherwise wouldn't have.
Anyway, good job conservative media, on creating this (less coherent and eloquent) Frankenstein's monster.
