John Fleming (R- obviously - La.) links to Onion story on Facebook -




Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) has deleted his Facebook post linking to an article in The Onion about a fictional Planned Parenthood “Abortionplex.”

In a Facebook status on Friday, Fleming alerted his followers to The Onion’s May 18, 2011 article, “Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex” and wrote “More on Planned Parenthood, abortion by the wholesale.” Fleming’s spokesman Doug Sachtleben confirmed to POLITICO the post has since been removed from the congressman’s Facebook page and said the office had no further comment.

The blog Literally Unbelievable — which posts Facebook statuses from users who think Onion articles are real — picked up Fleming’s status before the congressman removed it from the social networking site. Four users liked the post and eight left comments, with one person writing, “The Onion is satire. How exactly did you get elected?”

The May 2011 Onion article details the opening of a “sprawling abortion facility that will allow the organization to terminate unborn lives with an efficiency never before thought possible.” The fictional Abortionplex includes more than 2,000 rooms dedicated to the procedure, as well as “coffee shops, bars, dozens of restaurants and retail outlets, a three-story nightclub, and a 10-screen multiplex theater — features intended not only to help clients relax, but to foster a sense of community and make abortion more of a social event.”

8. Unfortunately.

After encasing my computer and myself in a full hazmat suit, I took a trip over to his facebook page. To answer your question, yes, his constituents are as dumb as him.

On a secondary note, I was sickened by the tone he takes on his page. Nearly every single post was negative toward Democrats and President Obama. Not once that I could see did he give the president the same respect for the office that was demanded of us from 2000-2008. As an elected official, I feel it is part of his job to present a respectful example. To blatantly be as disrespectful toward a sitting president as he is, is to further create the divisiveness that is slowly chewing up our country.
