I’m tired of the knee-jerk uneducated and uniformed
opinions splattered all over social media and the
resulting mindless group exercise of the modern
day witch hunt. Half-baked news spreads like typhoid
infested waters with the pressing of Android thumbs
and everybody’s an expert. And everybody’s opinion
is as self-righteously correct as the texter’s before
them and the millions to follow.
We will show our solidarity, dammit, and you will know
our view is right and true by the signs we hold up on
the screens of YouTube or FaceBook or even on the
network evening news because the media wouldn’t
compromise truth for hits or ratings.
And should you dare to have an opposing opinion or
be reluctant to judge before all the facts are known,
you will be painted with the tar brush of blasphemy
on Twitter and labeled a heretic doomed to burn in
the wildfire called “sharing” by the social media righteous.
There is no quest for the real truth in internet addicted America.
There is only the cult of social media and its unquestioning followers.
