This is the definition of fake news:

On paper it looks good. A bunch of assholes are going on a hunger strike, thus saving taxpayer valuable resources that could go to law abiding citizens. Of course a great way to go on an involuntary hunger strike is to just live in the shitholes they illegally immigrated here from.

The headlines got everyone all riled up and probably led to a lot of clicks and ad revenue for Masslive and WBZ. Except this is the last line of the story:

The organizations say the detainees sent jail officials a list of their grievances Feb. 10. A jail spokesman confirmed the detainees are refusing set meals, but are still eating their canteen food and drinking fluids.

LOL. Cool “hunger strike.” Except they’re not going hungry. They’re just being selective in what they eat. Kind of like my 2 year old.

Masslive didn’t even put that at all. They literally kept out the most important part of the story – this hunger strike involves eating. By the very definition then it is not a hunger strike. But fake news is gonna fake news. Anything for the clicks.

Here’s a list of their hilarious grievances they are demanding while they eat food, but not their first choice of food.

Lt. Cockley:

1. He has no respect for us. He’s very abusive and uses expletive language with us, such as the F…. word

Oh no!! Not the f word!! However will you survive?

C.O. Wilson:

3. Abusive treatment from other C.O.’s like Wilson. He makes fun of the detainees by using mockery and sarcastic remarks.

Stop the fight!! Sarcasm? Holy shitballs!! Thank God he wasn’t smirking!!

4. Food is always bad. There is no energy. Most of the time, the food is bland and there is no condiment such as salt and pepper. The food portion is very unbalanced. One tray might have a very small portion while others might have a very ridiculously big portion. There is no fruit.

Can we get a gourmet chef in here? What’s a prisoner gotta do to get some ranch sauce? And some prisoners get bigger portions than others!! No fair!!

8. The three TVs in the dayroom don’t work properly. They make weird sounds. It’s hard to watch them without getting annoyed. The cables are worn out.

Outrageous!! All three televisions should be at least 70 inch plasmas and have free HBO. You think these people illegally crossed an international border for basic cable? Madness!!

The bottom line is that Massachusetts and Rhode Island police officers do not collaborate with ICE. Every single illegal immigrant sitting in that jail right now is there because they broke the law, despite already being here illegally, and got arrested. Then during processing the cops realized they were undocumented so ICE got involved.

Here’s an idea – come to the United States legally. Or if you do come here illegally, try not to break more laws. Then you won’t end up in jail doing a bootleg hunger strike.

    If they claim hunger strike status, toss their cells and remove all but the most basic items to prevent suicide attempts and damage to state/county property. Bag up all of their canteen in the process because they could block a toilet and flood their cells with it.
    Be careful what you wish for, scumbags. Us screws have more games than Milton Fucking Bradley that we’ve been playing and winning at for a lot longer than you fucks have been down.

    Like illegal aliens, TB reports the news American media can’t be bothered reporting. If we hadn’t read this here we’d never know the details.

    And I’m sure each and every one of these illegals is a halo wearing angel. None of them deserve this terrible treatment…..this country needs an enema.

    Masslive is such a biased, bullshit “news” source it is ridiculous. Thank you TB for calling them out.
    Conservative commenters on Masslies regularly have their comments disabled or are completely banned for simply stating fact, or opinion that does not fit the liberal agenda. I have had to change my username three times for simply stating facts or anti-liberal opinion. Don’t piss on me and call it rain by telling me “it’s just the AI” Bullshit. I have made comments-no profanity, no racism, no threats, no bad, etc. and have them deleted because they did not tow the line/fit the narrative. AI my ass, it’s the ultra-liberal “journalists” and their moderators intentionally trying to stifle the conservative/independent commenter on Masslies.

    That said, let the border jumpers starve. In fact if they are claiming “hunger strike”, decline all food and water so as not to interfere with their protest.

      Not to mention all the fucking assholes who post there day long, day after day. And the motherfuckers who have a different screen name every couple of hours. A great journalism piece for TB would be to find out who those fucks are behind the nonsense that plays out there every fucking day!

        No shit. I love how certain (liberal) commenters can actually threaten others, threaten the POTUS, belittle and condescend…….but are not “banned”. My panzer9811 got banned because someone was being a douche to me, like really mean spirited and ignorant, and I asked them, “Don’t you have some cardboard and crayons? Shouldn’t you be making flimsy Commie signs? I’m sure there is a protest tomorrow somewhere, sometime about some fake outrage. You better get busy!” Something like that.
        I was banned for “personal attack”. Like not temp ban…permanent. Fuckin’ ridiculous! (I believe it was an Offred personality). I believe that person works for ML.

        In contrast, I have been called (by Off et.al)a Nazi, a racist, a white supremacist, stupid, dumb, ignorant, a misogynist……(I’m a chick BTW -lolololol ), a Putin supporter, a supporter of abuse of women (lol) and on and on. Mysteriously, all that all flies past the “AI’ Unfuckingbelievable.
        I would LOVE it if TB investigated and CALLED OUT the extreme bias of Masslies.
        This article is, hopefully, a beginning.
        Nice to be able to speak with you in an uncensored manner Z06VETTE. Thank you, my friend.
        Thanks Turtleboy!!!! <3

          Amen to all of that! I am ok with a news site having a slant; the bottom line is most do. It’s a sign of the times. But, when they use that slant to ban people and remove their posts because it doesn’t fit their ideology, that is a problem. I also have seen offred, Luke, et al make comments that are disparaging to people, even threatening (like you said) and they continue to make other screen names to continue the bullshit. TB is great at getting to people’s shadiness and Masslive would be a great story if they can find out what the fuck is going on over there.

          See you on the other side!

    Seriously? If an American was detained in some country not only for being an illegal alien (right….what American in his right mind would do that?) and for committing an additional crime, what kind of conditions would they be held under?

    Puhleeze….

    And it’s not even a hunger strike, just a ‘selective’ hunger strike? Give me a break. But, it supports the agenda, right? I’d love to hear Dan Rea on WBZ Nightside talk about this.

    ‘What part of ‘ILLEGAL’ do you not understand?’

  • I love ICE
    February 18, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    I have Zero sympathy for any ice detainee or their american advocates. I don’t care if they’re from mexico, canada, ireland, syria, etc. Their country of origin or the color of their skin makes no difference. If you are illegal, get the fuck out. Build the wall and lets really crack down on these visa overstays.

      You’ll still be called a racist even when mentioning Canadians + Irish.
      Maybe if you are Asian it might be.

      You here legally?
      Yeah. Good for you.
      Nope. Then leave.

    I’m so sick of these illegal aliens bitching. Clinton flew 20000 of them back to their countries. That needs to be done again
    The media is a joke now with these stupid stories about hunger strikes and abuse. It’s not factual and continues the liberal agenda

    Feed them Soylent Green.

    I posted something on MassLive about it and it went to moderation in about 2 seconds.
    I’m a fucking glutton for punishment.
    I do admit that I try oh so hard to be on the edge of banishment.
