The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy… Really?


Former Clinton & Michael Moore Employee Warns About Right Wing Conspiracies 


Lehane_Formal_Photo.ColorThe Right Wing Conspiracy might well be worse off than ever but I have still not received my check for my participation.  I ran across this article by Chris Lehane on how the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is worse than ever.  What Chris Lehane seems to forgetting is that a quick Google Search can really take the nails out of the soap box one is ranting on.  
One needs to look no further at the description of Chris Lehane: Chris Lehane is an American political consultant who served as a lawyer and spokesperson for the Clinton White House. This article has been adapted from Masters of Disaster: The Ten Commandments of Damage Control, by Chris Lehane, Mark Fabiani and Bill Guttentag.

I do not need we need to listen to warnings from a former Clinton White House lawyer and spokesperson when his previous literary work include The Ten Commandments of Damage Control.  Say this 10 times out loud and see if you come to the same philosophical conclusion:

“Former Clinton White House lawyer and spokesperson writes a book entitled The Ten Commandments of Damage Control.”

Next he states:

Take, for example, Fox News’s non-stop coverage of the supposed cover-up surrounding the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, which at times has veered into self-parody—segments hyping shoddy reports produced by the very same people who believe Obama was born in Kenya. 


What Lehane neglects to mention, either out of ignorance or malevolence, is that the reports that Obama was born in Kenya were “birthed” in the very campaign of his former employer, Hillary Clinton.


The answer lies in Democratic, not Republican politics, and in the bitter, exhausting spring of 2008. At the time, the Democratic presidential primary was slipping away from Hillary Clinton and some of her most passionate supporters grasped for something, anything that would deal a final reversal to Barack Obama

Some right wingers were stupid enough to buy into this conspiracy theory, but that pales in comparison to many on the Left saying that Bush was behind 9/11.  #Macklemore 


On the subject of conspiracies, I don’t think that Lehane has the moral high ground to speak on this matter seeing as how his extracurricular activities tend to be consulting for Michael Moore movies.




Lehane is no stranger to Moore docs, having served as a press strategist for the release of the firebrand filmmaker’s anti-President Bush screed “Fahrenheit 9/11 in 2004. Lehane was Al Gore’s press secretary during his the 2000 presidential run and served as a White House spokesman and lawyer for President Clinton. He’s worked as an adviser and consultant to various Democratic candidates. He is a partner in California-based communications firm Fabiani & Lehane.

The late Christopher Hitchens dismantles Fahrenheit 9/11 in five minutes. 


Lehane speaking out against the Right Wing Conspiracy and how it’s getting worse is like Al Sharpton, or Don Sterling, making endless speeches about how racism in ‘Murica is not getting better.  It’s like Sandra Fluke doing a cover of Independent Woman by Destiny’s Child.

I am a partisan just like Lehane, but if I am going to denounce the ills of venomous conspiracies and corrosive corruption (#AlliterationAlert), then I better have not have had a hand in some of the biggest negative slanders in recent political history.

If there is an argument to be made on income inequality in America, then let’s base on ability to logically connect dots and why Lehane is in a higher tax bracket that I.  Surely with all that education he is able to see the blinding moral contradictions in his own statements.  That being said, Lehane does not have a smidgeon of credibility on the subject matter in his memo.
