60. No argument here

"He is a fucking homophobic bigoted antisemitic holocaust denying asshole !" <- This is true

I never disputed that, in any post. His own words prove that.

BUT he has never threatened to strike Israel. Ever. That is a flat out lie. A dangerous one because it can be a pre-text for instigating war. A lie that has been debunked by reputable press, but not before the right-wing noise machine passes it around. Just the other day, Reuters tried it again with some editorial shenanigans before CBS stepped in and put the kabosh on it.

"But while Reuters quoted Ahmadinejad as calling for Israel to be “eliminated,” the official translation of his remarks indicated that he steered clear of the fiery rhetoric he is best known for."

Even Obama carefully avoided claiming that in his UN speech. He chose his words wisely for a reason. It wasn't just semantics. Our president is not a propagandist nor a liar. It's not unlike the "you didn't build that" meme he had to deal with a while ago. Except this is more dangerous because we are talking about war.
