Leftist Blogger Smears Bachmann With Video Ripped-Off From Stacy McCain [Updated Twice Below]

30 August 2011 @ 08:18

From Stacy McCain, we learn:

This is so shocking I don’t know how to begin to describe it. Regular readers will recall that on Friday, Aug. 5, I covered an appearance by Michele Bachmann at the Spirit Midwest Christian Music Festival in West Des Moines, Iowa. It had been raining all afternoon before Bachmann arrived and gave her Christian testimony, which I recorded on video and posted the next day.

Some vicious monster ripped off my video and edited it, so that when Bachmann begins by jokingly asking the crowd, “Who likes wet people?” — because everybody was soaked to the bone, including me — instead there is a caption, “Who likes white people?”

Ken Layne of Wonkette then spread that smear all around the Internet.

The full details may be found by clicking here.

Stace has consulted with an attorney [Lawyers Instapundit and Roxeanne de Luca offer, I think, some damn good advice here and here].

According to various reports from fellow bloggers, this doctored video made the rounds of the Leftosphere yesterday.

As of this morning the video has been removed by the idiot who posted it. And On Knees For Jesus has issued a non-apology apology.

Nail the bastard to the wall, Stacy ― I’ll provide the nail gun.

Like I’ve written here before: gird your loins ’cause this is just a taste of what’s going to come.

UPDATE at 1759…

Stacy offers his thoughts here on the non-apology apology.

UPDATE at 2317…

Stacy reports that Perez Hilton has posted the doctored video — no surprise that the vile piece of human waste would — but so has CBS News.  As he writes:

If Michelle Castillo has the advanced journalistic skills necessary to click that second link, she will discover that, when informed that his copyright infringement was the subject of contemplated legal action, the video pirate had published an apology and deleted the video from his YouTube channel early this morning, more than 12 hours before Castillo included his piracy as the No. 1 selection in the CBS News ”Top 5 Viral Videos of the Week.”

As a veteran of 25 years in the news business, I promise you that if I were Michelle Castillo’s boss, I’d have several choice words to say to her, the mildest of which would be, “YOU’RE FIRED!”

Stacy has called his lawyer.

Nail the rat bastards — slowly.

    Interesting – it’s an admission that they don’t have anything better to attack Bachmann with. Sort of like how they had to make up “book burning” and “TaserGate” stories to hit Palin.
