This is from the Onion. Notice the Onion-SPAN in the lower right corner of the video. As a previous poster said this is a joke.

How can you objectively demean the validity of a thread if you refuse to examine the material that thread is based on? Why bother commenting on the thread at all?
....to display his ridicule of others, along with doses of pompous snobbery, and liberal elitism?

I wish they would make it a little more obvious. I didn't have a CLUE what that little symbol meant.

LOL I am relieved that this is a joke. Although, in my experience, the Onion often is not too far from the truth, in their satire.

Whew

The classified issues are justified assaults on classified targets which is US...QUICK RESPONSE TEAM NEEDED AT MAIN STREET [BREAK] MAN IS PUTTING BIG MAC IN MOUTH [BREAK] USE LETHAL FORCE.

QUICK RESPONSE TEAM NEEDED [BREAK] LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE EXHALING CO2 AT TIMES SQUARE EXCEEDING U.N. MANDATES ON CO2 [BREAK] USE LETHAL FORCE WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

Maybe this is what Obama meant about shovel ready projects?

Part of the joke in satire is that it's presented in a credible manner. It's meant to draw you in, to better appreciate the point the satire is trying to make. The Onion is masterful in the art of the satire.
