Snopes Is Wrong About Royal Wedding
SNOPES IS WRONG AGAIN
April 29, 2011
Snopes is the place to go to find the truth, right?
Snopes is run by a liberal husband
and wife tag-team. They have no staff, no education or credentials that would make
them experts in any area, no less investigative reporting or finding the truth about internet myths. One
glaring proof of their ineptness is they vehemently and rudely defended the Obama’s claiming there was no snub when they were not invited to the royal wedding of William and Katherine. I challenged them about their website information. You can read all about this incident and read the rude answer I received to my request to correct their incorrect information (I even sent them a few links to help them in their quest for the "facts" - facts they appear bent on ignoring) at the following link.
Remember, Snopes played it down as if few heads of state were going to be represented on the guest list.
Oops! Wrong again Snopes! USA Today made it quite clear that anyone who was anyone including a music star and a soccer star attended. Most importantly, the list of heads of state was so long, I could only offer a partial list here. Anyone and everyone did attend as it would appear, everyone except the Obama’s.
Just a “few” of the heads of state Snopes claimed wouldn’t be there:
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Ms. Miriam González Durántez
Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Hon. Mrs. George Osborne
The Prince and Princess of the Asturias, Felipe and Letizia
Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde of Belgium
The Sultan of Brunei and Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha
King Simeon II and Queen Margarita of the Bulgarians
The Queen of Denmark, Margrethe II
King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie of the Hellenes
Crown Prince Pavlos and Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece and Prince Constantine of Greece
Sheikh Ahmad Hmoud Al-Sabah of Kuwait
Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso and Princess Mabereng Seeiso of Lesotho
The Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg, Henri and Maria Teresa
The Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Raja Permaisuri Agong of Malaysia

Crown Prince Willem Alexander and Crown Princess Maxima of The Netherlands
King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway
His Highness Sayyid Haitham bin Tariq Al Said of Oman
The Emir of The State of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, and Sheika Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned

Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Yugoslavia
Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia
Gee Snopes, considering this is merely a partial list, my question to the Snopes "team" would be, just who wasn't invited? OH that's right, the Obamas!
reason they were snubbed, well…it’s ugly. The Obamas have treated our ally,
Great Britain, deplorably. Mr. Obama breaks protocol and bows like he’s licking
the boots of a Saudi Prince. Yet when he and Mrs. Obama have an audience with Her Royal Highness, The Queen of England, they break protocol and won’t bow. Almost as embarrassing, no one touches the Queen. I’ve known this since a child.
You would think someone would have
made sure the Obama’s got the memo. Yet regardless, Mrs. Obama managed to place
her hand on the Queen’s back, as if doting on her old Aunt Tillie. How
embarrassing. How internationally embarrassing that our country has a President and
First Lady who humiliate us overseas and almost everywhere they go it would seem.
Daily Telegraph tells us in grave detail why we should hang our
heads in shame at the behavior of the Obamas especially with regard to their
treatment of the UK and other allies. A good friend Gayle, alerted me to this article:
Mr. Obama is truly an international embarrassment. USA Today makes it clear, anyone who was and is anyone attended this wedding or in the very least, were invited. Snopes tried to make it sound the guest list would be tiny and there was absolutely no snub. Somebody ought to fact check Snopes, because this isn’t the first time they’ve erred on the side of liberal causes.
This isn’t the first time I wonder how we could have elected a President so terribly unsuited for the job.
