In the interests of full disclosure, this image 👆 is Photoshopped.
Though Adam Schiff may be figuratively flipping the bird to the American people, he never once literally did it (on camera).
You can tell my image is Photoshopped because my PatriotRetort.com watermark appears within the image. It’s my little way of saying, “Yes, this image is altered.”
But since there are deeply stupid people out there who, despite the presence of a watermark on the image, will screech angrily as if I’m trying to hoodwink you, I feel it necessary to point out this “Adam Flipping the Bird” image is Photoshopped.
Or, in the parlance of the well-I-nevering pearl-clutchers in the news media: it is “doctored.”
The other day, someone took a screen grab of Congresswoman Elise Stefanik leaving Friday’s Therapy Session for the Disgruntled Former Ambassador and Photoshopped it to make it appear Stefanik was flipping off the camera. And yesterday, this image went viral on Twitter.
Maybe because I spent the morning watching video clips of Congresswoman Stefanik during the hearing in preparation for a post I did that I immediately knew the image was not authentic. See, the Photoshopper used the hand of a woman with deep, pink nail polish. Only, Stefanik’s nails in the video clips I watched were not painted deep pink. So I knew the image was not on the up-and-up.
But the Trump-hating ResistanceLOL on Twitter fell for it hook, line and sinker – including that vile gelatinous oaf George Conway.
Brian J. O’Malley (the genius who widely disseminated this Photoshopped image) was barraged with replies that included the unaltered image to show him his version was faked. But still he did not believe it was Photoshopped. People included photos of Elise from Friday’s hearing that showed her nails were not painted up like a Miami Beach divorcee, and still he doubted their word. The dimwit countered “I’ll check other angles, but as someone who uses Photoshop daily, I doubt it.”
He then went on a quickly-deleted Twitter thread explaining how, by pulling up the image in Photoshop, he was certain the altered image was not altered.
Sure, Jan. Elise Stefanik didn’t have deep pink nail polish and long-ass nails during the hearing. But then, PRESTO, as the hearing ended, her nails instantly grew and she quickly painted them deep pink on her way out. Then she flipped off the camera, left the hearing room, quickly applied nail polish remover and clipped her fast-growing nails so that when she did the press conference with the other Republicans her nails looked exactly like they did during the hearing.
Because Elise Stefanik is Magic!
Maybe she attended Hogwarts.
When it could no longer be denied that this guy and the gelatinous oaf got hoodwinked by a Photoshopped image, they both deleted their tweets. But only after the image went viral.
And you know what hasn’t happened? There’s been no all-hands-on-deck response from the news media to discover the identity of the person who made the Photoshopped image of Elise Stefanik.
Huh. How odd.
I guess they only snap into Seek & Destroy mode when a Photoshopped image or “doctored” video is created by someone on the Right.
I won’t be surprised if the media doesn’t say word one about this, despite the fact that an MSNBC paid contributor – that fat slob George Conway – was one of the people peddling this photo as if it was real.
And that’s the biggest difference between Photoshopped images by someone like me or Big Fur Hat from iOTWReport.com versus this Elise Stefanik image.
When we make Photoshopped images or video memes, we’re not trying to pass it off as real. We’re not trying to hoodwink people. That’s why our credits appear on the images.
But whoever made this image clearly wanted the Trump-hating Left to get hoodwinked.
And that’s exactly what happened.
The ResistanceLOL, who endlessly mock Trump supporters as stupid and gullible, gullibly ate this up with a spoon.
Because Elise Stefanik is their latest target. They want reasons to hate her and they want reasons to attack her.
The coordinated attacks against Elise Stefanik are truly a sight to behold.
The ResistanceLOL – both inside and outside of the news media – always let you know whom they fear by whom they attack.
This is something Rush Limbaugh has been saying for years about the Left.
And now it is Stefanik who is getting relentlessly attacked – so much so it’s like a digital wilding.
It’s even coming from former Hillary staffers like the loathsome Adam Parkhomenko.
What this amounts to is an intimidation campaign – an attempt to shut Elise Stefanik up through a full-scale barrage of attacks coming from every quarter.
They know she’s effective at destroying the Impeachment fantasy; and they want her cowed.
This is what they always do. They attacked Devin Nunes when he first exposed the plot to destroy Trump. Then there was the coordinated smear campaign against Jim Jordon financed by the same DNC law firm that financed the phony dossier.
And now they’re targeting Elise Stefanik.
These guys only have one play and they use it again and again and again.
And because the ResistanceLOL is so desperate to feed their hatred, these smear artists can even use Photoshopped images knowing they’ll be unquestioningly believed.
But as I always say, the Left pushes too hard and too far.
And this wilding of Elise Stefanik is going to backfire on them big league.
