Huh? TPM editor claims conservatives created ‘Obama is weirdo Muslim dog eater meme’

As news of Dog Meat-gate was ruining the nation’s appetites Tuesday night, Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall decided to weigh in.

Ohhhh, of course. We’d be completely familiar with that right-wing meme … if it actually existed. But of course, when liberals have no valid argument, they try to distract by trotting out absurd claims like “wingnutty wingnuts all think the president is a sekrit Moooooslim!!11!!1!”

Conservatives pushed back immediately, calling Marshall out for inserting religion into the discussion. They also took him to task for attributing anti-Muslim motives to people having a little fun with the #obamadogrecipes hashtag.

So when will we see a retraction or apology?

Yeah, we won’t hold our breath. For the Left, it’s more important to promote false and ludicrous caricatures of conservatives than to tell—what do those wingnuts call it?—the truth.

    Romney abuses family dog is front page fodder but munching on snoopy is ‘Obama is weirdo Muslim dog eater meme’

       o.O There’s a world of difference between abusing or neglecting a dog and using dogs as a food item. The former is reprehensible, the second is subhuman cannibalism. Worse than cannibalism. Maybe after the Zombie Apocalypse we can trade #Obamababyrecipes

    I thought dogs were haram, for pets or meat.

    What does Obama do when his dog gets stuck? Uses a toothpick.

    THERE IS A SAYING, “THAT YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT” SO TRUE AND YET PUZZLING. I LIKE MY T-BONE STEAK MEDIUM TO RARE, BAKED POTATO/SOUR CREAM/CHIVES AND A SMALL SALAD, I’M ALREADY HUNGRY. EVEN THE GREASY SPOON DOWN THE ROAD WILL NOT HAVE DOG ON THEIR MENU, THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL REQUEST FOR ONLY THE ELITE DUMB ASSES

    It’s common knowledge that Moslem filth regard dogs as unclean, abuse them, and use dog references as insults. There’s the moslem connection in this “Scumbag Occupy WhiteHouse Protester Obama Ate Dog” story.

  • Hiraghm

    No, I wouldn’t put ANYTHING abusive toward dogs past Moslems. Moslems are like communists; if you’re not one of their approved groups, they can do anything they want to you. So that’s a double-whammy against Occupy White House Protester Obama.

    “Obama the Dog Eater”  Yeah, I like it.  Has a nice ring to it.

  • Randy Bock

    actually his eating dog, and currently owning one as a pet run contrary to Moslem directives of seeing dog as “dirty”, but occasionally useful for guard service. Indonesia is an interesting special case of East Asians’ eating dogs’ rubbing up against Muslim canine antipathy

    Why is putting a dog in a secure pet carrier on top of your vehicle torture?  how many of us have let our dogs jump in the back of a pickup? I wonder which is safer?

    Obama himself brought the Islam faith and eating dog to the fore when he wrote it in his book.  (He also ate snake)  He was raised that eat this stuff and he could take on their “powers:  Snake part sure worked.    from:   http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/04/obama-as-a-boy-ate-dog-meat/         “… I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted
    grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote. “Like many Indonesians,
    Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of
    more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on
    the powers of whatever he ate:
