We’re rapidly approaching the anniversary of the infamous Bowling green massacre. On the 7th of February 2011 nobody was killed by ISIS terrorists, although two of them were arrested. Our sympathies go out to the non existent victims of this fake tragedy.
Seriously thought, this is taking “alternative facts” aka lying and deceit to a whole new level. Its ironic how so many of those who support populists claim that they do so because regular politicians lie, when the Trump team exists in a truth and fact free zone. Newsbiscuit have a take on this story here.
Of course, there was an ulterior motive to this, it was no simple slip up. An inconvenient fact for Trump is that the only Americans killed by terrorists during Obama’s watch, were home grown terrorists, not refugees. And the two deadliest of those three attacks took advantage of America’s lax gun laws. Quite apart from the regular massacres and spree shootings carried out by white male Americans on a daily basis.Something Obama did try and do something about, but Republicans blocked it.
And speaking of spree shootings we have have evidence that the attack carried out in Quebec city was a right wing gun nut and Trump supporter. And the response from the white house?….silence, they’ve scarcely acknowledged that it even took place.
Meanwhile in other news, the post-brexit UK government has just announced that the vegetable ration has been increased. Good growing conditions in Spain and the heightened value of the pound means supermarkets have been able to increase supplies to 3 items per person. All hail the dear leader!
