111. It's the same sleazy smear tactic Fox News uses

They play a clip of President Obama saying something like "Americans are lazy". But then later you see it in context and find out in context he really said "Nobody thinks Americans are lazy". Oops they didn't show what was said immediately before. Same with that sleazy screenshot of the person supposedly claiming to be a cop.

Take a look at what came right before:

Context makes all the difference.

The people who took that screenshot and are spreading it around understand they are taking it out of context, but they don't care, because they are having a good laugh at someone else's expense. There is a small group of pathetic losers who are overly fixated on this one poster because they get a kick out of harassment I guess.

Your question might have been sincere, but if it seemed like you were part of that group, that could be why it was ignored.

Anyway did it even warrant a response? Certainly President Obama would not owe Fox News a response to why did he say "Americans are lazy", because it was taken out of context to begin with. This is similar.
