The AP as Big Brother


August 23, 2016

Who put that picture of the elephant up there? That’s disgusting! Get me out of there!

Talk about unfair. Yesterday the AP ran a story about my paid campaign staffers’ negative social media comments about Muslims, Mexicans, African-Americans and John Kerry (someone said he should be hanged). I think someone at the AP should be hanged for invasion of privacy. Americans have a God-given right to be bigoted, as I should know.

One of my former Florida workers thought that Muslims were out to establish a totalitarian theocracy in the U.S. Which would be a bad thing, right? I mean, who would be for that? So after the AP outed this guy—Scott Barrish—he complained. He told the AP that “the liberal media, yellow journalists are really grasping at straws with their ad hominem circumstantial logical fallacies!”

Is it just me or does that sound a lot like Dr. Ben Carson?

After trudging through that word jungle, do you understand why I stick to simple words any idiot can understand?

Thank you.
