Twitter, the mosque shooting, fake news and bias

  1. A lot of people live on the edge at the best of times……hate talk tips them over.

  2. Obama dropped over 26000 bombs and drone missiles in seven Muslim countries during his presidency. That is a lot of dead Muslims, and a lot of dead innocent Muslims who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

  3. Why is blaming Trump, and those like him, “without merit”? That’s not blaming all people of a race, sex, religion, or anything. That’s blaming those spouting bigotry and hate. We’d blame ISIS leaders for spreading their bigotry and hate, wouldn’t we?
