If you don’t know that the headline in the image above from the propagandists at YourNewsWire.com is untrue, there’s probably no point in reading any further. You’re hopelessly ignorant and can’t be helped at this point.
This obviously fake news story is spreading far and wide today. A Facebook friend posted the above link today. I knew they were conservative as well as Trump apologists and I know they hate “mainstream” media, but I had no idea their ignorance rose to this level. This is akin to believing that the Sandy Hook Massacre was staged as part of an effort to round up your guns.
We shouldn’t have to explain to people that there is not a child sex ring at the bottom of a D.C. pizza joint. We shouldn’t have to explain to people that NASA does not have a child slave colony on Mars. We shouldn’t have to explain to people that the Earth is more than 6,000 years old. We shouldn’t have to explain to people that James Fields, the 20-year-old white supremacist moron who drove the car in Saturday’s deadly Charlottesville attack, is not a Hillary Clinton supporter nor a pawn in some grand scheme to keep right-wingers from having freedom of speech — as the fake news story purports.
And unlike President Trump, who leveled blame on “many sides” Saturday, these kinds of baloney stories come primarily from one side — the far right. Ironically, they also come primarily from those who scream “fake news” at legitimate media while sharing easily disprovable propaganda as “evidence” against accurate reporting. These people are anti-science and anti-reason.
Unfortunately, these gullible people also vote — apparently in surprisingly large numbers based upon what happened in November of 2016.
