The king of disinformation, former President Barack Obama, is trying to convince you that it’s only his disinformation that you should believe. It’s not enough to call something untrue, but what Obama says has to be labeled as the only truth.
Obama may be charismatic, but you can’t trust everything he says. Obamacare failed largely due to the false information that was being pushed by Obama and the federal government.
Obama recently spoke and continued disinformation. Obama said, “People like Putin, and Steve Bannon for that matter, understand it’s not necessary for people to believe disinformation in order to weaken democratic institutions. You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage.”
In terms of information that the government, or anyone else, pushes out, the general rule is that whoever tells the story first is right. Most people don’t believe the secondary information that gets put out because people don’t want to believe that their government would be dishonest. In a lot of cases the government is honest, but the Ukraine situation is totally different.
The federal government has spewed information into the public and some of it may be true, but there are key details that are left out.
When former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) talked about biolabs in Ukraine, she wasn’t lying. But, the left painted Gabbard as a Putin apologist because she pointed out that Ukraine isn’t an innocent party in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
The lie that’s been told about Obamacare is that you won’t lose your doctor, but too many people have. One Twitter user responded to the partial Obama speech saying, “My doctor said the same thing before I couldn’t see him after Obamacare.” Even factcheck.org acknowledged that Obama wasn’t being honest about the “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan” claim.
The problem with Obama’s claim on Obamacare and other claims on Ukraine is that Obama’s claim encouraged millions of people to lose at least some sort of health care that they previously had. The claims about Ukraine are still speculation even if there are facts surrounding them and the influence of those claims aren’t going to affect people’s lives like Obamacare did.
Other Twitter users focused on Benghazi and the claim that the left made that it was caused by a YouTube video. That was verifiably inaccurate as well.
