Where are all the "I knew what face I would see as soon as I clicked on the link" posters? Awfully quiet.

A CNN host called the Dallas shooter "Brave and Courageous, if not stupid".

Your FB is blowing up
Are you a kid or something?
Is this really how people are getting their news through Facebook and Twitter?
If so, God help this country.

Unfortunately, yes. Many people will believe anything they read online. Katy Perry (celebrity) recently posted on Twitter and said something like, "When will America wake up?!" and posted a link to the Texas pool incident. That tweet was followed by hundreds of dumb teens yelling "YEAAHHH!H!!!!!OMGA!!!!". If Katy Perry tells them to be outraged, then by golly, they're outraged too. It doesn't matter that they're 13 years old and know nothing about law enforcement or the laws in Texas.

Just the other day, an acquaintance (I won't say "friend") on Facebook posted the same story with another outraged message bashing the police, and the link she posted was from that World Star Hip Hop website. What a great source. There are idiots among us, and most of them are Liberals.

Dallas is a Black / Democrat run city. Really was a surprise that he was a white guy.

Well that is very sad on many levels. Almost all young kids are on social media now days, so where will the future conservatives come from if they are all buying into the examples you give?

BTW - Sadly I know what the first 3 letters of the acronym stand for, essentially taking God's name in vain every time they say it. But what is the "A" for?
[or do I want to know]
