“Stupid is as Stupid does.”
Maybe that saying from Forest Gump is the reverse but it matters not. I’m talking about the Main Stream Media, (MSM).
Across the news outlets the MSM is bloviating that the Ft Lauderdale shooter planned ahead to do his dastardly deed. That claim is pure crap. The MSM has a terrible track record on these kinds of statements. To name a few: Trump will lose the election; Hillary is a shoe in; Benghazi was because of a rogue tape; We never armed ISIS even indirectly; We have Israel’s back; The Clinton Foundation was purely a charity; Obama is the greatest President ever; there was no threat to national security from the Clinton Server; and the list could go on to near infinity.
I will not open a discussion about the shooter’s mental capacity but I do attack his “planning ahead”. The following would have been planning ahead.
Don’t fly from Alaska to Minneapolis and then on to Ft Lauderdale. Instead fly direct from Alaska to O’Hara in Chicago. There were more potential victims and when caught, he would have been charged with a typical Chicago weekend misdemeanor. In addition, Illinois is a “sanctuary” state and Chicago a “sanctuary” city. Because the shooter may have a Hispanic sir-name, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, (Obama’s close friend) would have used every legal resource to not only defend him but also protect him from Federal law enforcement under his Sanctuary City claims.
Yes, “Stupid is as Stupid Does” and the MSM have been suckered into the journalism cesspool once again. When it comes to “planning ahead”, the shooter is an idiot and the MSM is just as stupid by promoting that this guy “planned ahead” with other than a display of pure stupidity.
I thank God that his planning did not include this Sanctuary City in a Sanctuary County in a Sanctuary State.
And to you Right Wingers, look up the word satire before you attack me or you will appear as stupid as the MSM!
