Phoenix68: Why are you pushing a internet hoax meme of President Reagan...won't the truth work for you ?

Recommended Posts

From left leaning Snopes: 

 

A photograph shows Ronald Reagan meeting with Taliban leaders in 1985 and comparing them to the founding fathers of the United States. (Old Mack notes: The Taliban were not founded until 1994...5 years after RR was out of office.)

 

This enduring meme is wrong on more than one account. The group pictured here are not Taliban leaders, the photograph was not taken in 1985, and Reagan did not compare the pictured group to America’s Founding Fathers.  

 

According to the Ronald Reagan Library, the above-displayed photograph was taken in 1983, and it captures then-president Reagan meeting with Afghan rebel leaders to discuss the Soviet presence in Afghanistan. (Old Mack notes: The Mujahideen were not involved in terrorism.)

 

While the Reagan administration did help fund and equip the Mujahideen in Afghanistan....so that they could fight against the Soviet occupation, it is inaccurate to say that the former president met with the Taliban, as at that point that group did not exist.

 

The quote frequently attached to this photograph is a paraphrased version of something said by President Reagan, but he was not speaking about either the Taliban or Afghan opposition groups at the time. He made the comment about contra rebels in Nicaragua during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in 1985.

The agenda says...when face with irrefutable facts the dedicate must divert, clamor, be repetitious, equivocate or just totally ignore the argument. 

 

pho pho...thank you for not shunning me BUT I have offered verifiable facts to dispute your lying meme. 

 

As for Fox News...I have said it here before and will say it again: 

 

Fox New's agenda is all about the almighty dollar and they have turned News (which is suppose to be informative) into entertainment. 

 

This can also be said about MSNBC / CNN (same with 99.99 % of any other media outlets) and it you think they are the bearer of truth...you got more rocks in your head than I thought.

He actually compared the rightwing goon squads he hired with  money he got from Iranians in Central America. \

This was just as bad. They were a priest and archbishop murdering nun raping crew of goons

Not true unless you include internal terrorist acts ! Than it is kind of hard to nail down who is who and is muzz on muzz violence actually terrorism. 

 

When that PIC was taken the Mujahideen were concentrating on getting the Soviets to go home.  Once the Commies left...the Mujahideen renewed their tribal power struggles and fought amongst themselves.

 

Anyhow...how do you feel about pho pho posting a fake picture of President Reagan ?

 

As I have said before...facts don't matter to ultraliberals; only the agenda does.

 If it was “just as bad”, why don’t you just tell the truth and stop your lying ways? 

 

I’ve always said that lefties lie like breathing, they can’t help themselves
