Start a GoFundMe account to rebuild his house.
this would have to be one reason I don’t have myself a Twitter account
Nobody does that anymore.
There’s a tombstone in Tombstone AZ “Here lies George Johnson, hanged by mistake 1882. He was right, we was wrong, but we strung him up and now he’s gone”
The one’s who believed the story was true in the first place wouldn’t believe the apology anyways. They’ve already heard what they want to hear.
It always seems to work this way.
(Satire disclaimer) This all the liberal right-wingers’ faults! How dare they!
What? So GoComics ISN’T dropping “Non Sequitur”?
This reminds me of the U. of Arkansas professor who was misidentified online as a white supremacist. He got hate mail for months just because he looked like some guy who attended the rally in Charlottesville.
In their haste a lot make waste ….
MSM: “Here. Let me fan that for you.”
So Rat follows FAUX on Twitter?
So Rat and Pig follow Washington Post reporters?
Haha looking at the comments right above me, the Left hates “FAUX” and the Right hates the WaPo. Then you have people like me in the middle who wish you all would shut the heck up already and use common sense.
Did you also offer to buy him a new house?
amazing … you actually apoligized? Thats a new one.
Twittiots rule! (unfortunately)
Washington Post. Except that they don’t apologize.
Twitter in a nutshell including the Antifa-like rage and violence.
People believe what they want to believe.
Some people believe every thing they read…..I don’t THINK SO! Especially in today’s political landscape!
Or me, a face meme, snap dragon, etc etc
Never drink and Twitter!
If we stopped reading all this stuff we would hate each other less. Just sayin’.
Apology is one sentence, in a small box, buried at the bottom of page 3.
The twitsters are due on Maple Street.
Why can’t people just have civilized discussion
Technology isn’t driving humans crazy. It has amplified and speeded up everything. The speed at which rumors can travel has overwhelmed the reasoning capabilities of humans. Once someone starts getting bombarded by a ‘news’ from multiple sources, it is easy to start believing in it. Also, realize that there are active bad actors who are creating false information for political or financial gains. We are back to lynching and witch-burning on just rumors.
“A lie can run round the world before the truth has got its boots on.” – Terry Pratchett.
“Falsehood will fly, as it were, on the wings of the wind, and carry its tales to every corner of the earth; whilst truth lags behind; her steps, though sure, are slow and solemn” – Thomas Francklin (1787).
Oh, social media….the steroids to the game of telephone.
I am SO offended.
Nailed it, Steph!
Current US politics leave out the fifth panel. Sad.
Obviously from that famous house on Pennsylvania Ave., D.C.
And there we have a fine example of our marvelous media.
Too bad Nick Sandmann didn’t get the same courtesy of an apology.
A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest, lie la lie..
This is too real to be funny.
Thank you Mr. Pastis for calling out the mob mentality that is tearing us up as a nation. It is time for the propaganda artists to stop feeding the useful idiots.
It is time for people to stop acting like a mob and to start turning on thier brains.
Sadly, our government run schools and the liberal media continues to produce these conditions. The result..ferguson on fire, covington School kids attacked, Twana brawley hoax, Kavanaugh railroaded. All while the elitists protect thier own from the same treatment.
A population that thinks less is easily manipulated by a political class who seek to control them. They turn people into a mob-weapon and point the mob at their political opponents. Classic tactic of collectivists around the world. Alinsky and his mentor Lucifer are very proud.
Here is the question….will Americans wake up before it is too late? Maybe the Smollett fiasco indicates a turning point.
That guy in the white t-shirt seems to have stolen the yellow-shirted guy’s sign.
Exactly. Thanks for writing it all out, just in case there’s still some people who don’t know the Covington kids were the victims of haters, not the other way around. Everything you said is spot on.
“good morning” is what sets Rat off. And he’s got followers.
If it’s in print that means it’s right, right?!
Twitter is Satan’s promiscuous handmaiden. How many homes of innocent, wrongly-accused people must we burn down before we start to feel remorse?
And shame on you, Pig, for acting like a sheep!
Now we know how Wiley feels.
Libel and slander laws need to be applied to Twitter twits and severe consequences laid down. Let’s start with the original video poster in the Covington Catholic students’ fiasco.
Good slam on the current state of Mainstream Media
This is giving me major 2020 vibes…
