A school bus of illegal immigrants reportedly pulled up at a Walmart in North Carolina and shopped with EBT cards. The woman in the video says the immigrants could not speak English and were reportedly staying in China Grove.

Oh noes, Wingnuts in a dither! LOL This is exactly the type of article that gets the Wingnuts all wound up.

But every day there's a new thing comin'
The ways of an oriental view
The sheriff and his buddies
With their samurai swords
You can even hear the music at night

And though it's a part of the Lone Star State
People don't seem to care
They just keep on lookin' to the East

Talkin' 'bout the China Grove
Oh, China Grove

(Doobie Brothers)

Welp, it turns out that Jim Hoft, owner of Gateway Pundit, and also THE...STUPIDEST...MAN...ON...THE ...INTERNET(S) has done it once again. Jim Hoft reposted the story which this thread is based upon verbatem from something called Mad World News - because in crazy Wingnut world, if your brown and don't speak English and shopping at Walmart with an "EBT card" - you're an "illegal" alien on walfare. Thanks NO BAMA!

Jim Hoft obviously thinks if you have an Internet connection and the ability to post and/or rework a few stories - you're a journalist.

As CBS reports, the people are actually legal farmworkers on H2A temporary work visas, employed by Patterson Farms in China Grove NC:

Quote:
"The film that is on the Internet is our actual workers, we take them to the store every Sunday to get their supplies for the week," Doug Patterson told WBTV. "These are hardworking legal workers from Patterson Farm.”

...and oh, those "EBT cards" are actually prepaid cash cards that the workers put their own wages on. But they are plastic cards, and they do go into the same machine. Wonder if the workers bought any King Crab legs. lobster tails and filet Mignon. coffee (chai tea)

thanks Rick

A few more details of note on this story


The original posting site has added a small disclaimer at the bottom of the story saying that the story is apparently not entirely accurate

But of course they leave the inaccurate story up and provide no link to what would be an accurate update of story
And that original story is not so much inaccurate as it is totally false

So the way things work on the Internet this website will continue to get traffic and revenue from leaving up this false story

That is not exactly a model of integrity is it?

Also interesting to look down below the story and see the comments from people who read this story

Overall it appears that the people who dialogue in the conservative blogosphere have a pretty large portion of people who appear to have little integrity and abundance of misinformation and hysteria

There are certainly samples of liberals whom I disagree with. But almost none of them appear to have bat s*** loony quality that is so pervasive among vocal conservatives

And this is yet another reason why I distance my self from Republican candidates. I really abhor the company that they keep

At the reposting site, Jim Hoft didn't add that disclaimer until he had to, to save face. Notice there is no date for the "Update." No link, no corrected information, no nothing. Just that, and an updated headline that lets the reader decide whatever reality they prefer: “Update: Not True??”

Wow. So truthy. But, by the comments posted, it was done today.

So much for being a "journalist" there Jim Hoft and verifying before you go with a story. Run with scissors much Jimmy? LOL

Jim Hoft takes spousal goat on honeymoon.

Update: The above not entirely accurate.

Hmm See how that works?

There it is, the proper replacement description for the term "sociopath" that I was looking for - bat s*** looney!

BSL Personality Disorder. I like it, sounds official. Thanks, Ardy! Bow

The whole point of sites like Gateway Pundit and Mad World News is no more than to whip up the Wingnut howler monkey brigade’s lowest passions into a foamy, frothy, spitting mess.

In other words, to stimulate the BSL Personality Disorder functions of the bat s*** looneys?
