Carney: ‘Protests not directed at US, Obama or policy’; blames film!/ByronYork/status/246641814105374720

Yes, he is. Press secretary Jay Carney fully exposed his cuckoo pants delusions today.

Seriously, how recklessly incompetent can an administration be on so many levels? "Carney: Protests Not Directed vs US"

Carney: This is in response to a video, a film, that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting…this is…

That’s right. Press secretary Carney claims that the attacks on our embassies, growing in number every hour and already resulting in deaths, are not actually attacks on the United States. Nor the administration, of course! Obama is perfect and the raging radical Islamists totally get his nuance-y nuance. It’s all about a month old crummy movie, you see.

Can someone remind @Presssec that this "movie" or, "offensive video" as he puts it, was released months ago…

That's why they're chanting against Obama while they attack?|RT @DRUDGE_REPORT: WH: Protests not directed at US…

Huh. Weird. Truth is so hard!

More from The Washington Free Beacon:

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the violent protests throughout the Middle East are not directed at the United States or U.S. policy but are a response to a YouTube video:

CARNEY: We also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.

Again, this is not in any way justifying violence, and we have spoken very clearly out against that and condemned it. And the president is making sure in his conversations with leaders around the region that they are committed as hosts to diplomatic facilities to protect both personnel and buildings and other facilities that are part of the U.S. representation in those countries.

Obviously not a response to Obama. Obviously. The world loves us now and stuff! Except for, you know, when they want us to die.

It’s a response to a video. That the administration has judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. Icky, old free speech! Eww!

Citizens swiftly give Jay Carney the business.

Right. Because it's an *attack*. RT @NRO Yes, seriously: Jay Carney says, “This is not a case of protest directed against the United States"

— Razor (@hale_razor) September 14, 2012

According to Jay Carney, not having evidence that it was a pre-planned attack makes it OK to blame it on a film. #idiots

. @PressSec Carney: If this is not an attack on #America, why are they burning our flag?

— FN_BOOT (@FN_BOOT) September 14, 2012

WH Jay Carney 2day: MidEast eruptions not abt America, abt film. Romney MUST explode this charade. Weakness& apology EMBOLDENED Islamists.

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) September 14, 2012

Yes. And what about the weakness from the U.S. embassy in Cairo from which the administration is frantically trying to distance itself?

Carney says Muslims are not protesting Obama or the US. #delusional

— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) September 14, 2012

Carney is such a hack. RT @freddoso Did @presssec just really say this? We're ruled by idiots.

— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) September 14, 2012

shorter @PressSec: all those shouts of "Death to America" are absolutely not directed at America.

— Prudence Paine (@PruPaine) September 14, 2012

.@PressSec is repulsive. Our embassies are burning, our diplomats are being murdered, & he turns it into yet another campaign talking point.

— Jim Treacher (@jtLOL) September 14, 2012

Maybe Carney is skipping briefings to hit up Vegas, too.

Hey Carney @PressSec, if this is not an attack on America, what in the name of Allah is?!

— THT (@tarheeltroll) September 14, 2012

Carney: I know at least three American embassies in Tunisia. @presssec

— ن Miké Ramoné ن (@ThePantau) September 14, 2012

Dear @PressSec, if Mid East protests are not directed at US, why are 4 Americans dead and our flags being burned. Is the admin OUT OF TOUCH?

— Sean O (@Sean_for_3) September 14, 2012

@PressSec Jay stop being such a Dolt! This Islamic Violence has nothing to do with that video! It is all about FREEDOM! Stand up & be a man!

— Truckster1 (@truckster1) September 14, 2012

@presssec Jay, Jay, Jay! It wasn't the silly video. Don't insult our intelligence. You're supposed to be WH Press Secretary, not Dr Seuss.

If you believe @presssec, I never want to see you looking down your nose at birthers again:

"Death to America" is a dogwhistle code for "Peacefully protesting against YouTube!" – Carney

— el Sooper (@SooperMexican) September 14, 2012

GET A GRIP! Carney @presssec Global Protests Directed At Offensive Video, Not U.S. Policy Or The Obama Administration. #obama is a FAIL!

— Peni Basse (@pmbasse) September 14, 2012

To be fair, @PressSec doesn't place sole responsibility for these riots and murders on "Innocence of Muslims." He also blames @MittRomney.

— Jim Treacher (@jtLOL) September 14, 2012

Yep, he does!

Carney says criticism by Mitt Romney on embassy attacks has been "factually wrong and poorly timed"

— Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) September 14, 2012

Media lapdogs are at the ready to keep pushing that, too.

Carney claims “We have managed those situations.” As riots spread all over the world. #insane

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) September 14, 2012

Managed? Is that Newspeak for dangerous incompetence? Not surprising, coming from an Obama spokesperson. They heart propaganda and lies.

But, hey. Let’s keep blaming the film and stick our heads in the sand. That’s helpful.
