    Now we are up in arms about a dead elephant photo in a diary.

    I guess I'm just a heartless, evil person cause I don't get it.

    Priorities and context, two things progressives have a hard time handling.

    •  Yeah, and this is like the third fucking comment (9+ / 0-)

      that I've seen in this thread where you're chastising people who got pissed about the image.

      Instead of just letting people express themselves and rec whatever the fuck the want to rec, you're in here making a big fucking stink about what other priorities people should have, right this fucking instant.

      And no, YOU are the one with a "context" problem.

      Why?

      Because you can't manage to understand why a picture of a real poisoned elephant being used in in a political context might get people worked up.

      I'm normally pretty lax when it comes to contentious stuff, but this was truly in poor taste, and only distracted from those other topics you think others should be focusing on.

      Don't blame people for their reaction, change the fucking picture.

      And certainly don't make it one of the fp pictures used normally.
