    I am not so sanguine.

    There is a pure scum asshat who posts on the online site for my local paper. He has in the past posted his efforts tof ind out the actual names of other site users whom this asshat does not like.

    You think this is a false flag? I am guessing you are not a WI Walker Recaller.

      There are a couple of context clues that make this just seem...off...but again, we're both guessing and even if it is a false flag, it should be taken down.

      Today, strive to be the person you want to be.

        But this is too visceral a threat, all too very real, to have the slightest humor/satire content. That being said, human incompetence extends to all realms.

        It could be a very, very inept joke. For my money though, Occam would think not.

            where one side dresses up as the other team and commits some atrocity and/or provocation.

            In this case it would mean that some Democrats put up this FB page in an attempt to make the GOP look bad.

            I do not think that is true in this case.

            And I cannot for the life of me see how anyone would think that is more likely than it being a false-flag. A real site put up by real people who are really compelled by real hate would look like this.

            But someone pretending to be filled with hate?  Such a person would want real fathers and mothers to fear for their families safety?

            No sale.
