Liberal Activists At People For The UnAmerican Way Fundraise Off "Phony Benghazi Scandal"

Hypocrisy strikes (Yahoo News).
It’s come to this: A liberal advocacy group launched a fundraising drive this week around the House select committee on Benghazi that criticizes Republican groups for launching fundraising drives around the select committee on Benghazi. People for the American Way, a D.C.-based nonprofit that promotes a range of liberal policies, sent a fundraising pitch to supporters this week that blasted Republicans for “exploiting the tragic deaths of four Americans” in order to “raise funds and rally their base.” The message ended with a plea for PFAW supporters to make a donation and renew their membership.

Last week, after House Republican leaders announced plans to launch a select committee to investigate the 2012 attack on an American compound in Benghazi, Libya, the National Republican Congressional Committee wrote a fundraising plea based on the new panel. "House Republicans will make sure that no one will get away from Gowdy and the Select Committee. This is going to be a national effort for a national investigation," the page read. "Help fight liberals by donating today."

In the story posted at Yahoo News, the DNCC's criticism of their liberal allies is muted compared to the feigned outrage toward the NRCC.

Never mind that, during the Bush Years, the Democrats were planning ads using flag draped coffins of those who gave their lives in the War on Terror in fundraising and campaign ads (Daily Caller). Whose idea was that? Rahm "Dead Fish" Emmanuel, who was the chief advisor to Obama in his first term.

The Daily Caller, in addition to noting the above fundraising, wrote how Democrats have also fundraised off the Boston Marathon Bomings and the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

Even worse, the People for the UnAmerican way dishonor the Benghazi Four by calling it a phony scandal.

Phony scandal? If it's such a phony scandal, how come the survivors of the attack have been silenced by the Obama Regime.

Remember how Democrats and liberal activists used a phony scandal during the Bush Years about Valerie Plame to call for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney?  They even went after Cheney's aide Scooter Libby for alleged perjury. Never mind that the "leaker" was Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, who never was punished.  Yet liberals claimed "Plamegate" was a bigger scandal than Watergate.

Excuse me! No one died because of Plamegate. That was a phony scandal and a waste of taxpayer dollars because the real leaker's identity was known, but Democrats who motivated by nothing but anger over the 2000 election wanted to find anything to get Bush out of office.
