Once again the Left reaches down and scratches the bottom of the slime barrel…

There’s been outrage on the left over Michele Bachmann asking “Who likes white people?” at a recent appearance – except of course she didn’t actually say that:

Michele Bachmann made a campaign stop at the Midwest Spirit Christian Music Festival on Aug. 5 in West Des Moines to give a speech about her Christian faith. It was raining during her  appearance, so when Bachmann took the stage, she asked, “Who likes wet people?” referring to the still-damp masses who stuck around for her talk.

“Yeah, that’s right. Because we have the God of the winds and the rain don’t we?” she said immediately after — a key phrasing that was edited out of the shorter clip. “We serve a mighty God.”

But someone took the video of the event and added a subtitle with the fake quote.

Even though it wasn’t what she said and made no sense in context, Ken Layne of Wonkette ran with it proclaiming Bachmann to be a crazy racist. But when it was shown to be a blatant hoax (with the original poster apologizing) he refused to make any corrections.

Liberals are scum.
