Here’s your daily dose of dumb people believe everything they read on Facebook….
So let me get this straight. Neil here goes to the Holyoke Mall food court to eat at a Japanese chain mall restaurant. He’s wearing a Vietnam jacket on so they tell him they don’t serve Vietnam Veterans. No word if it’s all vets or just those who served in Nam. And now this guy wants to call Maura Healy to file a discrimination complaint.
Obviously he’s making this up. Obviously. Smart people can figure that out on their own. Dumb people need it explained to them by Turtleboy.
As you can see the post has been blindly shared almost 500 times by morons who see random shit like this that fits their agenda and instinctively share it, not caring at all about the damage it can cause to a local business:
A must read? It’s a guy you don’t know telling an unconfirmed and quite frankly not believable anecdote. Pulitzer worthy stuff indeed.
The “article I was telling you about?” Are people really this dumb? Newsflash – this isn’t an article. It’s a Facebook post from a stranger.
A quick inspection of Neil’s Facebook page tells you everything you need to know about him. Prior to today’s post he had hundreds of posts. All of which were him spamming the world about his vast accomplishments:
He has one picture – his profile pic:
Not sure if that’s him, but that is exactly as I imagined he would look like, and exactly the kind of background I expected him to live in.
The other post was this:
I voted for Donald Trump and I regret nothing. But if you think for one second that his election was divinely sanctioned then you are a moron, and you’re not even really religious. No truly devout person thinks Donald Trump is even remotely a man of faith. He’s a con-artist, but he’s better than Hillary so YOLO.
Like I said, I voted for Trump, and like millions of other people I only did so because I was disgusted by the SJW climate endorsed and cultivated by Hillary Clinton and many more on the left. Lena Dunham and Michael Brown’s Mom spoke at the DNC. Nuff said. Had there been a normal democrat I would’ve voted for them.
But I HATE being associated with the Trump diehards. They are complete and utter morons, and the only true thing Hillary Clinton ever said was when she called them deplorables. Because that’s exactly what they are, and this was on full display in the comments:
They need to “get out of America.” Taxpaying business owners in the Holyoke Mall need to leave. Are they citizens? Doesn’t matter. They’re Asian, they smell funny, and they don’t like Trump. Support the troops or get the fuck out!!!
Oh good, a mob helping to destroy a hard working business, possibly owned by hard working immigrants, simply because a guy they don’t know wrote something on Facebook. That’s healthy.
Doofus McGee was encouraging them to as well:
He had to throw this in there too:
Yea, “after church.” He had to throw that in there because everyone knows that every respectable God fearing right winger goes to Church on Sundays. Support the troops!! Murica!!
Does it matter if they are citizens? Ummm…yea, it kind of does. But what really matters is whether or not this story is even true though. Spoiler alert – it’s not.
Next thing you know a mob of angry veterans was planning a protest there, but Neil wants to talk with Maura Healy first because he doesn’t want to screw up “a case”:
Because this is the kind of thing Maura Healy investigates. Random Facebook posts from delusional wingnuts who think God wanted Trump to be President.
Next thing you know people were going the whole, “call the media” route:
Oh for fuck’s sake. Someone tell Nancy that Masslive and the Republican are the same thing. They’d probably believe and pursue this story if Neil was a transgender Muslim in a wheelchair, but Neil is probably out of luck.
Shawn is totally not a racist either:
Yea, Japanese people moving to Vietnam. That makes sense. Because all Asian people are the same. Throw em in a pile and get em out of America!!
Pro tip – if your immediate response to a Facebook post like this is “are they illegal aliens?” you might be a racist:
Ya know who no one ever asks, “are they illegal” about? White kids who shoot up their high schools. Funny how that works.
According to Neil it wasn’t just one person, it was four employees who kicked him out. And their exact words were “you leave now”:
Which of course sounds like a stereotypical thing one might believe a random Asian person at the mall would say. According to Neil they are Asian, but he’s not sure what country. Apparently “Shoyu Japan” wasn’t enough of a context clue.
Finally another veteran showed up to bring some level of sanity to the conversation:
Oh look, the guy was lying after all.
This guy may or may not be a Vietnam veteran. He’s proven that he’s a liar, so we have no reason to believe he’s not capable of lying about being a veteran as well. Regardless, he clearly is not a fan of Asian people. Maybe it’s because he did serve in Nam and still has an axe to grind with them. Maybe some kid fresh off the boat in middle school beat him in the math competition.
Here’s what probably happened. He saw this place, didn’t even approach the counter, thought about how he could get some quick attention from his gullible radical right wing friends, along with the much coveted Facebook likes, and he went home and posted it. It’s no different from a SJW claiming someone wrote the n word on their dormroom door. The right can virtue signal just as well as the left when they want to. And it worked out exactly according to plan. Except for the part where Turtleboy finds it.
