The Left’s Benghazi Comedy Show

klDemocrats “absolutely must boycott this absurd, insane, sickening, repulsive, shameful, and at the same time shame-less circus,” read an article at the Daily Beast last Wednesday. While you may be forgiven for assuming that the author was referring to the Obama administration, he actually was describing the upcoming hearings on the Benghazi investigation, which the article bluntly calls “bullsh*t.” That’s because progressives are rallying now in a desperate effort to dismiss Benghazi as a joke and the hearings themselves as a waste of time.

From the beginning, when four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens were killed in a terrorist assault in Libya in 2012, the administration did its level best to downplay the attack and divert responsibility for the murders to a scapegoated “Islamophobic” filmmaker and his hilariously inept, obscure YouTube video dramatizing the life of Islam’s prophet Muhammad.

But unlike the lapdog media, the right refused to accept the administration’s whitewashed narrative, so now that the left is feeling the heat from hearings to be chaired by bulldog South Carolina Republican Representative Trey Gowdy, they are naturally going on the offensive (when has the left ever gone on the defensive?). That means reaching for the most effective weapon in their arsenal: ridicule. Remember, this administration’s guru Saul Alinsky counseled that “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” It is simultaneously a defensive and offensive strategy.

Political commentator and consultant Donna Brazile, for example, mocked on Twitter that “The Republicans are hyping the Benghazi hearings like they are about to launch a new TV series: what should we call this?” One Twitter respondent called her tweet “a horrifying display of arrogance and disrespect for the dead.” Another jabbed back that the show should be called “Truth and Consequences.”

Missouri Democrat Representative Stacey Newman got into the act, sending out the cutesy tweet that she was “thinking of saying ‘Benghazi’ while debating tomorrow on the House floor. Just to see what happens.” This is a woman who asserts in her Twitter bio that she is most “obsessive” about “saving lives due to gun violence” – unless they are American lives and Islamic guns, apparently. Then it’s just funny.

Mississippi Democrat congressional hopeful Trish Causey, another candidate in a crowded field for the title of Least Classy Comedienne, tweeted this hilarious nugget to her 1,325 social media followers: “As part of National Masturbation Month, Republicans like screaming the name of their fluffer, Ben Ghazi, when they orgasm.” It’s hard to imagine how anyone of any political persuasion could take a candidate seriously after such a disgusting, flippant public remark regarding American deaths, but then again, Causey admits on her website that she is “not a politician. I am an ActivistArtist [sic].”

CNN contributor, Daily Beast columnist, and now would-be standup comedienne Sally Kohn tweeted this smirky joke: “Little known fact: Monica Lewinsky is how Republicans pronounced Benghazi in the 90s.” She’s actually trying to claim that the unanswered massacre of Americans abroad, and the administration’s ensuing coverup is no more consequential than what the left considered Clinton’s harmless sexual indiscretion.

Here’s a little-known fact for you, Ms. Kohn: the Lewinsky affair rightfully ended in Clinton’s impeachment, and if the Benghazi hearings get to the truth, they could result in Obama’s. Kohn’s Twitter bio describes her as someone who “works for justice” – except justice for the Benghazi victims and their loved ones, because that might embarrass presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the woman who angrily shouted “What difference does it make?” when questioned about the attack. The woman who looked the victims’ family members in the eyes and promised them that a lone anti-Islam filmmaker would be brought to justice.

Other Democrats got into the act, insisting that Americans don’t care about Benghazi. Corrupt, race-baiting New York Democrat Representative Charlie Rangel declared last week that Americans aren’t “going to lose sleep” over Benghazi. Host and commentator Cent Uygur, who was actually asked by his former bosses at MSNBC to tone it down, exploded on his show The Young Turks in an anti-Benghazi rant so obscenity-riddled that it’s impossible to quote from it. Suffice it to say that Uygur considers Benghazi to be microscopically insignificant.

But Eleanor Clift, yet another Daily Beast columnist, won the prize for diminishing Benghazi Sunday when she stunned the other talking heads in an episode of The McLaughlin Report with the assertion that Ambassador Chris Stevens “was not murdered. He died of smoke inhalation in the safe room in that CIA installation” – as if his death were a mere workplace accident and somehow completely unrelated to a terrorist attack. She too insisted that the Muhammad video was responsible for everything, as did Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, a program built on satire and ridicule which has become a trusted news source for young progressives. He dismissed the Benghazi controversy last week and asserted ridiculously that “there is no dispute that this situation was spawned by the release of a video. I don’t think there’s any question.” Stewart must be confused, because there is actually no dispute that the “situation,” by which he means the slaughter of American citizens, was not spawned by the release of a video.

Dismissing/joking about Benghazi is nothing new. A year ago for example, former DNC chairman Howard Dean announced in a televised discussion with RNC communications chairman Sean Spicer that “Benghazi is a laughable joke.” When Spicer countered that “With all due respect, governor, when four Americans die serving this country, that’s not a joke, sir,” Dean interrupted with “Oh, stop it,” and proceeded to use the words “ridiculous,” “silly” and “nonsense” in regard to the Republican pursuit of the truth.

But this recent flurry of irrational reactions confirms that Benghazi is not merely a minor incident of workplace violence “that was, like, two years ago, dude,” to paraphrase former White House spokesman Tommy Vietor. After all, you draw the most fire when you’re directly over the target. Benghazi is a potential Achilles heel for the left, and they are acutely aware of it.

    The amount of bluster spewing from Obama’s and Clinton’s MSM protectors and fanatical Progressive Democrats can only mean the tide is turning and they are very afraid the American People will finally see what they have been doing and why they’ve been doing it.

          Yeah, well, I thought that the last election would tell but then too many Americans are willing to sell their vote for a free cell phone and food stamps.

          • herb benty

            That sadly has been the case, however, many had not really noticed that Pol Pot has been President, hopefully, even these will switch their vote this time. If not, many States will separate from America. I can’t see America allowing itself to be transformed into Cuba.

    The Democrat party makes me proud I am not an American. If I were an American how would I explain our government and the deceitful lying career mooches who assemble there for their obese pay checks every two weeks?

    Four Americans who were in Libya for good intentions ended their lives being sodomized and dragged on cement before, during and after. Not the first time Americans have been slaughtered by Muslims while the American media closes their eyes. This happened in Somalia and 240 Marines were killed when a Mohammedan detonated his truck after entering the Military area (Beirut ).

    Although I wish to see the entire Democrat party dragged in the street after having been sodomized I doubt I will ever see such an event. The American people will forgive, will forget and make bows to Killary in 2016 like the good electoral puppies You are. Americans can laugh at the French but You are not better.

    • Davros11

      As an American I have to give you Kudos! You are correct we deserve all we get for allowing a piece of $hit like Obama and his dummycrate allies to conspire against us. We are going downhill fast and will only have ourselves to blame!!

      Americans can laugh at the French,German or anyone else,but as you said they are worst than the French,in fact fact as the whole world sees them,worst than any other nationalities.It pains to say,but they are the laughing stock of the world and starting to be despised.

    • Chipsie

      I don’t know if you are French or Palestinian, and it doesn’t matter to me. However, I do not appreciate your criticism of the United States. First of all, every other nation in the world has scandals to match that of the US as well as other egregious acts that typically are far worse than anything occurring in America. Furthermore, the very fact that Benghazi IS a scandal, is because of the patriotism of Americans who are still using their First Ammendment right to criticize their own government and to express as well that we do not accept the status quo. If America was as bad as you have made it out to be this whole thing would be forgotten. You are correct however if you are criticizing the mainstream media or the democrats who are responsible for the turmoil of our nation at present, but the American spirit of true patriotism wil prevail, and that is something we will fight for until we die. This is what being an American is to most of us and while we may be ashamed of the media and the failures of democrats and liberals, we are proud of America and the courageous fighting spirit of those who fight for our nation even today. Glen Dohery, Sean Smith, Ty Woods and Ambassador Stevens are not and will not be forgotten.

      • sundance69

        If the American voters don’t get off their duffs and vote these criminals out of office in the next 2 elections there will not be an America to save. Most young Americans that have gone through the government school system could not tell you who the 1st President of our country was let alone what American patriotism is. I ask you how can you be proud of a country when you know nothing about it. Wake up America the progressives have systematically removed all traces of American history from our schools and have spoon fed our young populace’s minds the joys of socialism. Our country was built and founded on the principals of hard work bringing success to our lives because of personal achievement. Today half of the country lives off of government assistance in one form or another. When one is better off financially on unemployment and food stamps something is wrong with the picture. We were successful in winning WW I & II but this fight may very well be for the soul of our nation.

    • justquitnow

  • sundance69

    For all of you uninformed clowns out there that think this whole
    Benghazi investigation is a joke or a lie I ask you what would you do if
    this incident involved your son or daughter. The US populace seems to just lap up anything that this administration puts down for us to eat up as the
    truth. Today the term investigative journalism is an oxymoron, back in
    the days when Watergate occurred it was actual journalists that got to
    the truth finally and the truth finally came out. As for Bill Clinton he
    went on national television and lied to Congress and the entire nation.
    If the blue dress had not surfaced to make him out a total liar we would
    have never known the truth about that either. This committee was
    formed as a result of just 1-email that had been previously submitted
    and totally redacted and there are many more to come.
    Today the MSM are given their daily talking points and are informed by the Whitehouse whats happening on a daily basis, unfortunately it’s what they want to happen and how they want it to come down. When a Congressional Panel requests documents and it takes months to produce them and when they finally get them they are totally redacted how can you conduct a fair and
    honest investigation? This new panel has the power to get them and the
    subpoena power to request testimony under oath which none of the other
    dog and pony panels had. I ask you to read this article and see if you
    still think it is a joke, if you still do then this country is much
    worse off than anyone could imagine. The truth be told or is that the
    new hate speech.

    You can bet that the USA was running weapons to Syria.Those U.S. made rockets the rebels were revealed to be using just last week didn’t buy them at the Army Navy store down the street.

  • james connolly

    Yes, I can understand why the delusion and out-of-touch Left would get so apoplectic about the upcoming Benghazi hearings. After 20 months and countless lies, obfuscations, cover-ups, contradictions and deceptions, we still do not know the full truth about the needless killing of 4 apparently “disposable” men at the US embassy there. The American people are growing weary of all the stonewalling, because there’s quite a lot of evidence that there’s something colossally WRONG “there.”

    If there isn’t anything to this (not likely) then what do the extremists fear? Their blaming and making a mockery of the opposition is right out of Obama’s bible, Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” Discredit the opposition at all costs when under fire or backed into a corner. ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK to avoid any truth from coming out. Change the subject. After all, it’s those crazy Republicans who merely seek the truth who are really to blame. IT’S ALL THEIR FAULT! WHO CARES ABOUT THE TRUTH?

    The elections in 2014 and 2016 are another issue. After 5+ years of America’s dangerous decline (economy, military), empowering of extremist enemies worldwide, alienation of our Allies, and doubling of the national debt we will never be able to repay, Democrats know their future chances are abysmal. Too bad they don’t grasp that THEY BROUGHT IT ON THEMSELVES in their insane thinking that Utopia is achievable on earth. The chickens are now coming home to roost.

  • Lanna

      Legal memo to the idiot reporter: if you deliberately and unlawfully set fire to an occupied building and someone inside dies of smoke inhalation as a result, you have committed felony murder. If you intended your acts to kill one or more of the people inside, you have committed plain old murder.
      “He wasn’t murdered, he died of asphyxiation after someone wrapped a rope around his neck and pulled. Or he bled out after someone stabbed him. But hey, that doesn’t make it murder.

    Dear Speaker Boehner.

    The gang who is covering up Benghazi is totally busted now. Why would
    Chris Steven’s own gov’t set him up? One of 2 reasons: Guns to Turkey/Syria or
    to trade him for the blind sheik, in what became a botched kidnapping,
    resulting in Chris Stevens’ murder.

    Mr. Speaker, people forget the background of the summer of
    2012, in which Morsi kept whining about wanting the blind sheik to be sprung
    from jail. Here’s a link to a Wall Street Journal story from June 29, 2012:

    http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303561504577497053026356034

    and a quote from the article:

    …………………………………………………………..

    Egypt’s President-elect Mohammed Morsi made a nod to his
    base in a speech on Friday when he pledged to seek the release of Sheik Omar
    Abdel-Rahman from U.S.
    custody.

    Sheik Abdel-Rahman, who is better known as
    the “blind sheik” is serving a life sentence at a federal
    penitentiary in North Carolina for his role in
    planning the 1993 bombing of the World
    Trade Center
    in New York City.

    Egyptian
    Leader Channels Revolution

    His detention has become a cause célèbre
    among hard-line Salafi Islamists whom Mr. Morsi counted on in his runoff
    against ex-regime loyalist Ahmed Shafiq.

    Dozens of bearded Abdel-Rahman supporters,
    many in religious vestments, have slept outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in a sit-in that
    has lasted the better part of a year. A full city block of downtown Cairo is festooned with
    banners bearing the blind sheik’s image—bearded, capped with a red tarboosh and
    1960s-era wayfarer sunglasses.

    When Egyptian authorities charged seven U.S. citizens,
    including the son of a cabinet secretary, with violating laws on foreign
    funding for nongovernmental organizations in the spring, Sheik Abdel-Rahman’s
    supporters lined up outside the courthouse calling for a prisoner swap.

    For die-hard devotees, Mr. Morsi has taken up
    a cause that proves his revolutionary credentials: ousted President Hosni
    Mubarak did nothing to seek the sheik’s release.

    “It’s wonderful. He did very good
    mentioning Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman,” said Hesham el Ashry, a sheik supporter
    and a preacher. ‘If America
    wants to be a real friend of the new Egyptian regime, they have to respond to
    the request of Morsi and release Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman.”……………………………………………………………….”

    And here is the brand new link,
    summarizing all that is gradually being found out about Benghazi

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56ADl6oT1fk

    This is the link you need. Hot off
    the press, from good old Montagraph, who as I told you months ago, found that
    the former firm of John Brennan, known as Stanley Inc., bought by infamous
    Obamacare firm CGI, was responsible for the name change of the infamous blamed
    Muslim movie, “The Innocence of Muslims”

    Mr. Speaker, Please, please, create
    a select committee on Benghazi.

    Nobody is supposed to be above the
    law.

    Here’s my old letter form Jan 1 to
    John Brennan to refresh everyone’s memory:

    January 1, 2014

    Dear John Brennan c/o The White House:

    Quote from Free Republic.com: “CGI, the designer of the Obamacare website
    and computer system, is the parent company of Stanley, Inc., whose employees
    (2) along with an employee of Analyst Corp, were investigated for the State
    Department passport breaches involving said passports of Hillary Clinton, John
    McCain, and Barack Obama.

    The Analyst Corp employee, one Lieutenant (his name, not rank) Quarles
    Harris, was reprimanded but not fired. Analyst Corp is a small company of
    approximately 100 employees at that time. It’s CEO was at that time John
    Brennan, now Director of the CIA.

    As a side note, Lieutenant Quarles Harris was murdered in DC in 2008.

    Though Brennan’s connection to CGI is tenuous at best, it is strengthened by
    the fact that the Stanley Inc co-conspirator Analyst Corp (in the passport
    breach matter) was a tiny company. “
    Next, quote from legal project.org:

    “President Obama last month began describing Benghazi as one of a number of “phony
    scandals” currently engulfing his administration. On Thursday CNN reported
    that the CIA had 21 or more agents in the embassy compound during the attack
    and is engaged in an “unprecedented” effort to conceal details of the
    incident.

    Former Green Beret Jack Murphy, bestselling co-author of “Benghazi: The Definitive Report,” has identified John
    O. Brennan, the then-chief counterterrorism adviser to the president, as the
    source of the decision to blame Nakoula’s video for the terrorist attack on Benghazi. When asked about
    Brennan on Twitter, Murphy described him as “Obama’s propaganda
    minister,” who “knows how to work disinformation very well,” and
    said he was “behind both the OBL leaks and the YouTube video as the motive
    behind the Benghazi
    disinfo.” Asked how he knew that, Murphy demurred, saying, “I didn’t
    find it in the NYC public library, that’s for sure.”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7os9D-EsFmM is the link in which you’ll find the avatar
    and hyperlinks that place Brennan’s former firm, Stanley Inc. as being a part
    of changing the name of “Innocence of Muslims” … Also, CGI ( of Obamacare contract fame) acquired
    Stanley Inc. http://washingtontechnology.com/articles/2010/05/07/cgi-buys-stanley.aspx

    So, Mr. Brennan, if guilty shouldn’t you confess your role
    in the deaths of Lt Quarles Harris as well as the Benghazi Four? Nobody is
    above the law. Goes for your boss, too.

    Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) turned the tables on the media and asked them questions about Benghazi. The silence was deafening.

    The questions he asked can be answered simply by the kidnap attempt/swap for the blind sheik. It makes sense on all points he brought up.
    If it was about the gun running, the storage or those military grade weapons would require more security not less and even a fool would see that.

  • http://batman-news.com Loose Willy

    They have more important issues to tackle — like “Bridgegate” where two lanes of traffic in New Jersey were blocked. There is more attention to this non-story (to destroy Gov Christie) than Benghazi, IRS abuses, Fast & Furious (over 150 killed), Solyndra, voter fraud, illegal aliens (not undocumented immigrants), the slow reponse to the BP oil spill (over 30 days yet bash Bush over Katrina which was 48hrs), The list goes on. If the MSM wants to put Fox News and other consvative media out of business, instead of ad hominen attacks, they only need to do their job instead of relinguishing and abdicating their responsibility to partisan politics.

As the the founder and prophet of Islam, Muhammad,it’s not so much the question “Was Muhammad a prophet?” It’s better stated “Was Muhammad a prophet sent by God or was Muhammad a false prophet sent by Satan to lead many people astray?” After all Jesus did warn “Beware of false prophet which comes to you in sheep’s clothing but are inwardly ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15. The Bible further warns that “many false prophets are gone forth into the world.” First John 4:1. To give the acid test if a prophet, teacher, or religion is teaching truth of falsehoods is if the prophet, teacher or religion has teaching and doctrines that are in according to God’s Word, the Bible. That if a person or religion has teachings and doctrines that are in contradiction to God’s Word then that prophet, teacher or religion is false. As Isaiah 8:20; explains “To the law of the testimony: If they speak not according to the word , it is because there is no light in them.” [KJV] Islam denies that Jesus is the Son of God. This is in contrast to the Bible which teaches that Jesus is indeed the Son of God, John 3:16, 17, and 36. First John 2:22, 23. Likewise. Islam denies that Jesus is God the Son. In contrast to Islam the Bible teaches that Jesus is God the Son. As seen in Hebrews 1:6-8 with emphasis on verse 8. Furthermore, Islam denies that Jesus is God. This is in strong contradiction to the Bible which teaches that Jesus is God. As shown, for example, in John 1:1-3. Romans 9:5. Colossians 1:15-17. First John 5:20. Second Peter 1; 1. Titus 2:13. Moreover, by comparing the Old Testament with the New Testament will further show that Jesus is God, As in by comparing Isaiah 45:22,23. With Philippians 2:5-11. Will show Jesus is God. Also by comparing Psalm 89:8,9. With Matthew 8:23-27 will further confirm Jesus to be God. Even by comparing the New Testament book together will confirm Jesus to be God. As in John 5:22 with Romans 14:12 will show Jesus to be God. The list can go on but this should be enough. The imams and mullahs will try to “explain” this all away by claiming that Christians had corrupted the Bible through time. This claim greatly underestimates the power of God to preserve His Word in time and keep it intact and away from the corruption of men. In conclusion, Muhammad was a false prophet and Islam is a false religion, Proverbs 14:12. John 14:6.

  • Gee

    I fail to see the joke. I spent many years in uniform protecting people that despised people like me and these are the same people stating that somehow the death of 4 Americans is some sort of joke.
    Disgust is not a strong enough term, but it is the only that I can post here

    For a group of people that claim Benghazi is a non-issue, they certainly seem to be trying really, really,really hard to make people think that.
    A very strong whiff of “there is no-one behind the curtain……I am the great and powerful Oz” seems to in the air. ;)

    Seven investigations, 250,000 pages of information released not enough? How much has all this cost, including 50 votes on the Affordable Health Care Act, not enough! Remember Pat Tillman!!

    • Rob Hobart

      Pathetic troll is pathetic.

    • iluvisrael

      how much did all the watergate investigations cost?? and nobody died in that mess, nor did the administration tell the world it was ‘a video’

  • Donald J DaCosta

    “Benghazi is a potential Achilles heel for the left”
    Would that this be true but when you have the clout represented by that bastion of progressivism, the legacy media, this is anything but certain.

  • Hank Rearden

    We have to keep making the case. The Dems are never going to concede anything. As with Communists in the 1940′s and 1950′s, the Dems cannot comprehend, or at least admit, that radical Islam is dedicated to attacking us and wiping us out if possible. So all the evidence that they ARE doing that has to be ignored. But since it is reality that they ARE coming after us, that means ignoring reality. The MSM supports them in this effort.

  • vnamvet1969

    This is unraveling the entire liberal base and they are acting like school children. Would be funny but for the fact that those four men died and these jokes show the total lack of respect for their suffering. I am saddened by the direction that our Nation is going. And, since when does our President have to hide his location during this event? Obama is a disgusting little man, but his protectors are beyond despicable.

    the repubs better not screw this up… be professional and at the same time, shine the light on ALL the cockroahes!!!

    Liberals are mentally ill.

    To anyone who served, Benghazi is a dagger to the soul, to Democrats it’s a joke. I always ask anyone who defends the administration’s actions – “What would you have done if you were President?”. That is the question that gets at the root of the problem, that our President is culpable for the assassination of an American Ambassador through inaction. He is the only one who could legally authorize US military assets to cross a foreign border. The only action that the most powerful man in the world has taken is in covering up his own incompetence.

    I don’t even think Leftist comedianes are as funny as they used to be (left and right switched you know Nazis today are “Leftists:) Even Sarah Silverman lashed out at Islam, rare moment of repentance and purity. The funniest comedian going is Doug Stanhope and he is a conservative, listen to him ridicule Jenin Gerafalo.

  • Ellman48

    “Benghazi is a potential Achilles heel for the left, and they are acutely aware of it.”

    Moveon.org was created specifically to discredit the impeachment process against Bill Clinton for the Monica Alinsky affair. Circling the wagons is nothing new to the Leftists who are committed to silence and denounce any investigation of Democratic malfeasance, corruption, incompetence and downright stupidity.

    I still don’t get it. I would post the list of attacks and deaths under Bush, but FPM deletes it. It’s relevant, just like attacks under other Presidents because of the difference in reaction. How is the President “responsible” for these deaths anymore than a President is responsible for such things. He didn’t attack the compound…

    So someone make up your minds…is this a big deal because Obama lied (for whatever cockamamy reason) about the attacks (which is already disingenuous) or is it a big deal because no one is every suppose to die in our foreign installations and we can’t tolerate this single incident without unwrapping it to it’s core (which we already have done). People are calling it bs, because most of you don’t care which, just do something about the lawlessness!!! Freedumb!

    • reader

      No, it’s not relevant, because it’s not about an attack on Americans. It’s about what was the purpose of the Benghazi Annex in the first place (Tripoly is the capital of Lybia – for ignorant trolls out there); what was the US Embassador doing in this Annex; why his repeated requests for additional security were denied; why no assets were engaged over the course of the assault; what exactly Obama and Hillary were doing having been informed of the attack; and who exactly ordered to lie about the attack. Select Committee should put people under oath and ask them direct questions under direct threat of purgery charge.

      • justquitnow

        All your questions have already been answered in detail. I’ve never seen more people twisted up in internal dishonesty and cynical bs in all my life. FREEDUMB!

  • nacho475

    How about instead of focusing on the video- which gets mocked by the left… we hammer on about why security was cut even though there were repeated requests for more security. Why was security not reinstated after the British embassy was attacked? and I believe there was another attack on the US compound a few weeks earlier.

  • Christopher Riddle

    Apparently(according to some DemonRat operative or another),Ambassador Christopher Stevens Wasn’t”Murdered”;he died of”Smoke-Inhalation”?I want to smoke whatever it is they’re smoking!!I can’t drink anymore!!!!

  • Maynard

    I hope Gowdy will make all of them eat their stupid words

  • David

    Hasn’t the author ever heard of the healing power of laughter?

  • American1969

    If leftists are so sure that Benghazi is nothing, why are they so apoplectic over the whole thing? Methinks they protest too much.
