Smear Merchants On The Left And Now On The Right

The truly talented smear merchants come from the Left.  The hive is running with the meme that Laura Ingraham, radio talk show host and a speaker at last night’s RNC Convention, did something grotesque.

The über-Left website Crooks and Liars noted:
“That thing did actually happen. At the end of her speech, Laura Ingraham appeared flew (sic) the Nazi salute in honor of her hero, Führer Drumpf.” 
“This will become more common in the next few months, I predict. Along with loyalty pledges and brownshirt armies.”
Known racist Tariq Nasheed, tweeted, “Earlier on my radio show I talked about how the RNC is like a Nazi rally. & tonight speaker Laura Ingraham does this.”
We’re familiar with these tactics but I’m having a difficult time reconciling why T. Becket Adams, a Staff Correspondent for The Washington Examiner, let this kind of evil creep into his Twitter feed.
The actual caption associated with the photograph reads:

Adams has written, “Don’t expect me to support Trump just to make you feel better about your decision to sell out liberty.”  Alright, Mr. Adams, your opinion is duly noted but stooping to the level of the smear merchants on the Left is classless.  Yours was not the act of a conservative.  It smacked of a hard-liner for the other side.  

Did you even see her speech?  She ripped Hillary and drew raucous applause when she eviscerated the press poodles for their anti-conservative bias.

“To all my friends up there in the press:  You all know why, in your heart, Donald Trump won the nomination. You know it. You know why he won it?” she asked. “Because he dared to call out the phonies, the frauds, and the corruption that has gone unexposed and uncovered for far too long. Too long!  Do your job!”
