So a well to do young man is impassioned against the “rich” and wants to make a statement to take down the “man”. He lies about his parents home being taken by some evil bank and his Facebook page is swarmed with high fives (internet kind of course) and he is a media darling. Now, a real journalist would have checked the background on this man, however, real journalists are only found on the internet anymore and it took The Blaze to find out the truth. I Am Sure His Parents Will Say Its Ok, Because Its About The “Struggle”
According to the Daily Kos, Robert should be commended as “a patriot” for spelling out the reason people are protesting. “If you can watch it without being affected, you are as heartless as Dick Cheney,” the site notes.
There’s just one problem: Robert Stephens’ story is (surprise!) completely bogus.
Phone inquiries into the county property records & taxpayer services office reveal that the Stephens family home is not and never has been in foreclosure, that property taxes had been paid in full this year and the remaining balance on their mortgage for the half-million dollar home is less than one year’s worth of tuition+fees at their son’s law school.
The nail in this empty protest‘s coffin is a delightful phone conversation I just had with Robert’s mother, Marquita, where she admitted Chase Bank indeed was not “taking” their home from them. Instead, due to a recent “reduction in income,” they’ve decided to hold a “short sale.”
When I asked Mrs. Stephens if she and her husband planned to stay in their suburban St. Paul, Minn., surroundings after the sale, she told me they weren’t too keen on the idea. The area is “a bit too conservative,” she said.
I am so sick of the theater that the leftists in this Country play on the minds of all Americans with the help of the media wing of the Democrat Party. They are destroying this great Country for no other reason then they are bored.
