    Knew the background of these people or organizations. When i read you comment, right from the first sentence I thought, why is wiseacre assuming people just KNOW this? I didn't. Not before this diary. Maybe if I'd read the comment on the others I'd have learned then. But the story didn't interest me.

    Nevertheless, if you say "people don't seem to understand why it's a bad idea to...bigots and antisemites..." and that it's "indefensible", you assume that people knew. But I think many didn't. And now we do. Sometimes people are just not being antagonistic or hateful or callous or whatever. There's tons of people who are not informed.

    I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.

    •  It's called checking your sources...... (2+ / 0-)

      ....and in this case it would have taken about twenty seconds.

      •  People tend NOT to check sources when a story (0+ / 0-)

        fits too well into something they already believe. Why go to the trouble, when they "know" what the truth is?

        This is a problem that is not found only among the wingnut fringe, unfortunately.

        If it's
        Not your body
        Then it's
        Not your choice
        AND it's
        None of your damn business!
