Austin Miles Falls for Fake News Reports

Rev. Austin Miles isn’t very bright. In fact, he’s something of a dullard. And like most wingnuts, he’ll jump on any story that makes Obama look bad, even if it’s completely false and even if it comes from a site that does satirical stories. So he passed on this bit of bullshit:

The best 4th of July celebration of all was the one held on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol. And how good it was to see shared patriotism, something we need more of.

While America was watching this tribute to our country, Obama, according to news reports, spent his 4th of July at a Mosque and invited Muslims to be with him at the White House.

Oh yes, according to unnamed “news reports.” Actually, according to satirical website the National Report. But don’t let that stop you from passing it on as if it were true. After all, it makes Obama looks bad. That’s all that really matters, amirite? And then he does it again in the same column:

What did Joan Rivers mean when she called Obama Gay and Michelle Trans on national TV? Actually that idea has been bandied about for some time. There will no doubt be more to come. It is interesting to Google the name, Michael LaVaughn Robinson who was born in Chicago along with Michelle Obama.

The world gets nuttier every day.

The ONLY way we will come out from this slush pile of evil pouring over us is to make God the center of our lives, and consider Sunday (Sabbath) Church Services a vital part of your week. There you will be strengthened in the faith that our country was founded upon and might spur us on to share our patriotism.

Oh yes, the only way to escape the completely false claim that Michelle Obama is really a man is to turn to God, who will then presumably make us as credulous as Rev. Austin Miles.

    There is nothing too satirical or stupid for aRethug to take as true.

    I expect they’ll be quoting Alfred E. Newman soon.

    Austin Miles is the author of Don’t Call Me Brother (1989), which was a blistering exposé of the hypocrisy-riddled Assemblies of God. (It was published by Prometheus Press, well known to humanists and skeptics.) Poor Miles, however, did not learn the larger lesson. Instead of discerning the scam at the heart of religion in general, he merely denounced one sect and departed from it. Underachiever. :-(

    I’m pretty sure these “satirical” web sites are being secretly funded by the Republican party for the express purpose of starting hysterical rumors about Obama to be spread by chain e-mail. Snopes is full of them.

    Amazon.com: Don’t Call Me Brother (9780879755072 …
    www. amazon. com/Dont-Call-Brother-Austin-Miles/dp/0879755075

    Setting the Captives Free by Austin Miles Hardcover $16.54 …. Miles was a famous circus ringmaster, as well as a minister in the Assemblies of God for 10 years.

    Now that you mention AofG, I remember that name.

    Miles was one of those rare people who thought xians walked their talk.

    LOL, sure fooled him. Yeah, AofG is pretty corrupt. So is the RCC. And the JW’s. One wonders about the rest of them. (Not really, it is like turning over a rock. Lots of creepy crawlies and you just want to put the rock down and forget what you saw.)

    Austin Miles: What did Joan Rivers mean when she called Obama Gay and Michelle Trans on national TV?

    I think I know what Joan Rivers meant when she called Barack Obama gay and Michelle Obama trans: she meant to get laughs. She’s a comedienne, after all.

    I mean, how long has she been doing this kind of thing? Longer than Austin Miles has been alive, I’ll bet.

    Translation:
    The big bad world is full of boogeymen, but if you come to church every week and give me at least ten percent of your wages, then I will look after you for ever and ever.

    That idiot from Saturday Night Live that lives around here, what’s her name, Victoria Jackson. She fell for the same story and posted it on her website.

    She still never took it down even though every commenter called her a dumbass.

    caseloweraz @8,

    That damn Jon Stewart has a lot to answer for, the simplistic mind of the wingnut is now having a hard time trying to figure out news from comedy.

  9. throwaway, never proofreads, every post a gamble says

    Synfandel @ 9:

    After all, it makes Obama looks bad.

    Oh? How so?

    My take on that is that it makes Obama look bad to the self-selected audience, not in general.
