Liberals have an uncomfortable relationship with reality and the truth. How else can you explain their top two candidates for president being “socialist wackadoo” Bernie Sanders, who’s promising everything for “free” on the one hand, and one of the great liars of our time, Hillary Clinton, on the other?
They get especially out of sorts when reality or the truth gets in the way of their liberal agenda.
So it’s no wonder liberals are out in force criticizing the new movie, “13 Hours,” which details what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, when four Americans were killed under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s watch.
Responding to critics, the movie’s director, Michael Bay, has just six straightforward words.
Via The Blaze:
“We were just saying the facts.”
Those were the six words “13 Hours” director Michael Bay replied with when asked Tuesday night on the Fox News Channel whether politics were inserted into the film which tells the story of the 2012 Benghazi attacks.
Host Bill O’Reilly was prompted to ask the question after Bay said on his program that the movie had received praise from those on both sides of the political spectrum.
“You didn’t even mention Hillary Clinton in the movie, did you?” O’Reilly asked after contending criticism the film is political was “unfair.”
“No, we did not,” Bay said. “We were just saying the facts.”
“Here’s the thing,” the director added. “The politics got in the way of this great human story that happened. And this is really to honor these type of men who do this every day, who put themselves in harms way — that’s what this movie is about.”
O’Reilly played devil’s advocate and pressed him.
“OK, but it makes the Muslims fanatics look terrible, villainous, awful, savages. And a lot of people object to that, you know?” he said.
“Well, they attacked. They attacked,” Bay replied. “This is the way I was told. This was the way it was written by the five guys on the ground.”
Yes, the facts Michael Bay recounts in “13 Hours” are inconvenient for Democrats, to be sure — especially when they don’t shine favorably on their presidential frontrunner or Democrat leadership in general, who are responsible for leaving Americans high and dry to die on their watch.
And yep, how inconvenient that the truthful portrayal of some Muslims in the movie is not favorable.
But hey, the truth hurts sometimes. Perhaps that’s why Democrat voters continue to choose to live in plain denial. SMH.
