The Washington Post Slings Another Slippery Headline – Updated

Update: The article “That caravan of migrants Trump was tweeting about? Mexico stopped it.” refered to below appears to have been disappeared by the good folks at the FakeNews Washington Post.  The link from the old article go directly to a new one, “The caravan of migrants that’s alarmed President Trump stalls at a soccer field.”  They rewrote it, but failed to include an “Oops” we made an error correction.  Instead, they just made it go away.

That incorrigible Washington Post can’t resist serving up misleading headlines in an effort to try and diminish President Trump. For example, “That caravan of migrants Trump was tweeting about? Mexico stopped it.”

This misleading headline is one of the reasons the WaPo gets labeled so often as FakeNews. The headline – “That caravan of migrants Trump was tweeting about? Mexico stopped it.”

The ‘facts’, though, as reported in the story, belie the “Mexico stopped it”part of the headline. For example, the “annual caravan…is currently in the town of Matias Romero Avendano in the southern state of Oaxaca.” It’s still there waiting for something that may or may not happen.

Or how about, “A portion of the group …[is in] the neighboring state of Veracruz…but it is unclear whether that group has so far dispersed.” If it’s unclear that the group has dispersed, it probably hasn’t.

Or my favorite, “An official from Mexico’s National Institute of Migration told BuzzFeed News that Mexico plans to disband the caravan by Wednesday.” We have plans to, but as of yet we haven’t stopped anything at all. You know what they say, “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.”

Senator Tom Cotton Holds The Line On DACA Deal

Thanks Senator, Cotton. It’s too bad Senators Gramnesty, Snake, and Pot Grower decided to throw in the towel and be “Little Dicky” Durbin’s boy toys.

Lindsey.  Why don’t you put on your big boy pants (those legs are really hideous) and help Senator Cotton get a ‘real deal’ for America.

Can This Be Racist?

racist – Urban Dictionary Top Definition

If you’re a white man, this is what you are. It doesn’t even matter if your wife is black and you have an adopted child from India, or how many black friends you have, somehow you’re going to end up being a racist according to how the media portrays the white man as “racist whities”.

All of this is funny because the white man is the one that is stereotyped as being racist, which is hypocrisy at its best. It’s racist to assume that white men are racists.

If you don’t get offended by racial insults, then you’re apparently racist too, but an actual racist would get offended by it. When you hear a certain word too much (I’m sure we’ve all heard “cracka” hundreds of times thanks to standup comedy) then you become desensitized to it.

Well, that and the words white people get called sound stupid or non-offending. “cracker” came from cracking whips. Indiana Jones cracked whips too, and he was a badass. “honkey” sounds like some kind of gigantic sandwich, and “white boy” makes you seem like the lone white kid in breakdance movies that stands out amongst the other races and white kids. Most people only really think of rednecks when they think of “white trash” so they don’t get offended by it if they’re not rednecks.

My New Home Is In Chappaqua

When Trump gave a speech on terrorism and immigration and said,

We want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally, through a process…. No one has a right to immigrate to this country.

It seemed pretty reasonable to most folks, but not Hillary Clinton. She retweeted,

Hillary’s comment makes no more sense than me saying I have a right to move into this random house at 15 Old House Ln, Chappaqua, NY 10514. (Come on, Secret Service. Just joking. Using Reductio ad absurdum to argue the absurdity of Hillary’s comment.)
