“Fake news” is the buzzword of choice for social justice warriors lately. Because they still can’t come to terms with the fact that their worst nightmare was elected President fair and square. So they need excuses, and “fake news” is the best they could come up with after “Russian hacking” didn’t catch on as they hoped. SJW’s have pressured Facebook to add a feature where you can report “fake news.” Of course we all know that this will be abused rather quickly by overzealous people from both sides of the aisle (but mostly SJW’s) who simply don’t like to see news and opinions that that don’t align with their worldview.
Of course all that’s gonna happen as a result of this is the censorship of real news. Because the fakest news out there is the mainstream media. And ironically they’ll be the safest. Check out this headline from “Boston.com,” (which is just a fancy way of saying the Boston Globe) about an ongoing dispute about a proposed Muslim cemetery in Dudley:
Here’s their story in its entirety:
A deal to allow a local Islamic group to build a cemetery in the small Massachusetts town may be off again. The chairman of the Dudley Board of Selectmen tells the Telegram & Gazette that he won’t sign off on the agreement when the board meets on Monday. Jonathan Ruda cites comments made to a local newspaper by a lawyer for the Islamic Society of Greater Worcester that appeared to question the town’s ability to further review the cemetery plan. Last month’s agreement would allow the society to buy a long-idle dairy farm and build a 6-acre cemetery. The group agreed not to expand the burial ground for at least a decade and drop a lawsuit against the town. The lawyer, Jason Talerman, says the society stands by all agreements in the settlement.
That’s the whole story. That’s it. It purposely omitted the most important part – the Muslim cemetery is a public health issue.
“Residents began protests in January, when the society sought a special permit from the ZBA to develop the cemetery. Of the many concerns aired during months of contentious public hearings, most prominent were the risks of polluting underground water supplies and increasing traffic on the narrow, winding country road.”
Abutter Mathew Dix told a reporter he and many of his neighbors object to turning the former dairy farm into burial grounds. “My first concern is what I’ve heard about their means and methods of burying. I understand there’s no vaults and no caskets,” he said. “People decay and the water table is right there and we all have wells here.” Muslim internment rites prohibit embalming and call for the immediate washing and shrouding of the body, which is, in some cases, buried without a casket. The underground water table, Mr. Dix said, flows through the farm and feeds area wells.
It’s also a narrow, curvy country road, and any neighbors in any town would probably object to a sudden influx of traffic that brought their town zero increased revenue. You’re not opening up a casino. You’re burying dead people near drinking water.
Oh yea, and the people trying to purchase this land aren’t from Dudley. They’re part of the Islamic Society of Worcester. The same organization that had a teacher on its staff who was arrested for a terrorist plot. Of course none of the people they’d be burying there currently live in Dudley, and they don’t have to drink the water there, so its not their problem. Boston.com could’ve mentioned all these things but they purposely chose not to. Ya know, because they’re “fake news.”
But of course we know the reason Boston.com came up with this misleading headline and purposely omitted relevant information – they were trying to make the town of Dudley look “Islamophobic” and bigoted. They’re feeding off of SJW’s fears of all things Donald Trump. Trump wants to ban Muslims, and so obviously Dudley is following suit.
And this was exactly the type of reaction Boston.com was looking for:
You’re right Beth, there is no mention of anything relevant in the article. Sure, you could’ve just researched it yourself, but it’s easier to call people names and toss up a couple hashtags instead. This is how social justice warriors make the world a better place.
There it is – “Trump people.” Because if people are concerned about their water, they’re automatically Trump supporters. But then again Patrick has a right to toss in his two cents about this issues. After all, he lives in town:
Oh wait, no he doesn’t. He’s just an asshole from Suffolk Law School who wants to make himself feel better by calling other people bigots.
Yea, that’s not how freedom of religion works. Shocking that this thing doesn’t understand how the Constitution works:
Of course the only voice of reason in the comments was an actual Muslim who knew what the fuck he was talking about:
Classic. It’s just so predictable. A bunch of uppity white people looking to feel warm and fuzzy inside label an entire town as bigoted because the people there are concerned about water and traffic. White people are the worst.
So why did the Islamic Society pick Dudley of all places? Oh yea, because Dudley voted pretty overwhelmingly for Trump in November. And if you voted for Trump then you hate Muslims due to your bigotry. The Islamic Society chose this town because they wanted to make a big scene and pick on a town that they believe was Islamophobic.
Of course Attorney General Maura Healey is doing what she does best – getting involved in something she knows absolutely nothing about:
“Genevieve Nadeau, chief of Healey’s civil rights division, told Dudley’s board of selectmen that under state law a community cannot “prohibit, regulate, or restrict the use of land or structures for religious purposes,” the Boston Globe reported.”
I know people will chime in with the usual about “libtards” and then liberals will respond with “bigots,” and the cycle will continue. But this is not liberalism. Liberalism is supposed to be about finding ways that the government can use a safety net to help the downtrodden become more self-sufficient. But instead modern day liberalism has been hijacked by social justice warriors whose primary concern is calling people white nationalists and accusing them of Islamophobia. But by all means, keep doing it. Worked out great in November.
