Douchebag Of The Day: Kelly Keisling, Moronic Fear-Mongeron August 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm
Awarded to Tennessee state Representative Kelly Keisling for sending out an email to his constituents, from his official state email account, detailing a conspiracy theory that President Obama and DHS were going to stage a fake assassination attempt and other events in order to declare martial law and postpone the election.
Not only are these rumors conveniently unprovable but they serve no purpose other than to scare people who are already living in a bubble of paranoia and ignorance. Oh, I forgot mention what party Keisling is affiliated with. But I don’t really have to, do I?
It’s garbage like this that sets borderline people off. For example, Glenn Beck’s Tide Foundation would be assassin and the numerous other killers that thought Obama was coming to get them because someone in authority told them it just might happen ANY MINUTE NOW!
So keep whipping your mindless followers into a terrified frenzy, Keisling. It’s not like you’ll take any personal responsibility when one of them snaps anyway. In the meantime, Congratulations! You’re a douchebag!
