This is what my cousin posted on FB.  I don't agree but he gets so many in complete argreement and one person gives and opposing thought and gets blasted with nobody else stepping in to offend him.  Your thoughts on the comments below and article?


From time to time I peruse Breitbart to see what kind of trash they feed their following.  This one is a gem.  The article conflates Trump's firing of Comey, to Obama's firing of General McChrystal during the war in Afghanistan.  Problem is, they are totally different.  Trump fired Comey while his administration was being investigated for colluding with the Russians to fix the election.  Obama fired McChrystal  because he made public comments that contradicted Obama's directives in Afghanistan.  This is the type fake news that has caused all the problems in our country recently, like getting Trump elected.

Well snowflake the so called news story you referenced was not a "news" story but an op ed! Right or wrong it isn't being passed as news but rather someone opinion! This is hardly the same as a News reporter reporting on hearsay, innuendo and questionable secret sources as fact with no evidence it is factual!

I'm glad someone made heads or tails out of this, I was at a loss following his point.
So in summary, someone got upset over an opinion piece? :lol:

Your calling me a snowflake?  I'm just posting how most of my relatives and friends think.  It seems I'm in the minority unless I come here.  I am not the one who called Breitbart news trash that was what I copied and pasted from my cousins thread.

You left a lot of room there by referencing someone who is NOT present and NOT saying what you say in the post I quote here. Too late with too little!

As for opinions, see the dictionary for something else we all have: anus. From which they pulled the piece you submitted.

I feel your pain, family members, God love em, can be some of the stupidest people, even when they were raised under the same roof as yourself. I've yet to understand how I came from the same tree as my brother, yet he got hit by the "Stupid Limb".
I quit Breitbart when Bannon betrayed Andrew Breitbart and turned it into a propaganda mouthpiece for the Lib.

This isn't true.
