Fake News Threatens Local Pizza Joint

I don't know if you folks have followed this well-publicized local story, but a bunch of alt-right Trumpsters peddled a fake news story that a local pizza joint was hosting a child sex ring run by Hillary Clinton. Anyway, some Trumpster asshole showed up today with an AR-15 and fired a shot or two announcing that he was there to do his own investigation. BTW, Trump's National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, helped peddle this ridiculous rumor that has resulted in hundreds of death threats and now an alt-right clown with an AR-15.

What a bunch of irresponsible assholes. They are their own worst enemies, which in the long run might be a good thing, provided they don't trigger WW3 in the process.

We had an idiot at work make the comment; "Well, I guess I don't have do the patriotic thing, now. I can unpack my shit."........This upon the news of Hillarys defeat. He later claimed it was a joke.

I always knew there were paranoid freaks in this country. I just didn't know there were so many until they all came crawling out of the swamp in the last quarter decade or so.

Before Joad, Whell and Nailer start bitching about how unfair it is to call this the action of Trumpsters, please explain what Michael Flynn, Trump's National Security Advisor in waiting, was doing helping to circulate this rumor concocted by alt-right websites.

The scary thing is Flynn seems to be the man right now for Trump's foreign "policy." That is one reason why Trump appears not to be able to get an A list candidate for State. I think Romney would be crazy to serve without demanding that Conway get the heave-ho, at the least. In fact it might be better to have Mad Dog at State than defense. The man appears to be well-read at least.

We are into the craziest days we have seen since the Day-care sex-abuse hysteria of the 80's. Remember the McMartin case?

Yeah, what in the hell is up with that? There is some kind of psychological thing going on with people when they see a singular incident of something in the news and immediately assume it's going on everywhere. "I heard they are molesting kids in daycare! (Somewhere, in another state 600 miles away.) That's it I'm going to get my kid out of day care because it's run by perverts!"..............

And they wonder why we think they're stupid.

The sociologists have, in their sociologist way, half a handle on it. These things are called "moral panics." See wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_panic

The real problem is that ignorant people do not realize they are ignorant.
