Social Media Pearl Clutching and CNN's Iranian Retaliation Pregame Show

I am still trying to wrap my head around all the crazy reactions from dropping one on Iranian General Soleimani this past weekend. Whether it’s the hilarity of comparing Ilhan Omar’s comments about 9/11 as “some people did something” against her calling a drone strike on an Iranian who trained troops to carry out terrorist operations in foreign countries an “outrage” or seeing the reactions on the other side clutching their pearls because any military action obviously means we are going in to a full scale war, there is literally no in-between.

Now that social media has taken over is obviously having the effect that everyone feels a need to have the most emotional and least rational reaction possible and the hotter the take, the better.  I think in large part, my biggest problem is that I just can’t bring myself to even pretend to care as much as these people do.  I don’t care that some Iranian general got splattered on an Iraqi street, Iran is an awful country that finances terrorism worldwide, good riddance to anyone involved with their regime.

Democrats have decided that the woke take would be to repeat Iranian propaganda.  It is a fascinating situation since the Democrats claimed to be so concerned over Russia’s influence on elections, they were ready to start WWIII because of Facebook memes following the 2016 elections, but are sounding the alarm about Trump putting down like a rabid dog an Iranian general because they view it as unnecessary escalation.  Consider that for a moment, the Democrat party accuses Trump of directed policy that only benefits him politically, but they wanted war with a country who made fun of them on Twitter, and released true emails they wrote which disgusted the American people, but killing a man who lead militias that attacked our U.S. embassy was a bridge too far.

What I don’t get is how the Democrats actually think it’s a good idea to shill for Iran to “get Trump”.  There must be a certain point where these people would look in a mirror and realize just how ridiculous they sound.  The first thing you should realize is how many times since Trump has been President that the mainstream media has promised us we were heading in to WWIII.

It was supposed to happen when we launched missiles into Syria, it was supposed to happen when Trump called Kim-Jung Un “little rocket man”, they probably even said it was going to happen because of the Southern border at some point so I would advise anyone who suddenly thinks that the leftist media is speaking in good faith when they talk about WWIII that they reevaluate how much credit they should be giving to them.  The past week has given us abundant examples of how the media  hate Trump with such burning intensity that they are willing to lionize and mourn a man who was responsible for the deaths of at least 600 Americans, as well as for a great deal more terrorist activity.
