So this is a quote that’s been going around Tumblr today after The Daily What (of all fucking publications for you to get your news from) made a post about it originally appearing on The Daily Currant, a “satirical” news site and that word is in quotes because I’m using it very, very loosely
It’s just so sad to see people in such a state of panic and anger about politicians they don’t like that they will take anything that bashes them at their word
This quote is 100% fiction and there are so very many things about it that should have tipped you off about it but they didn’t and it’s because you’re scared and angry and easily convinced if what you read appears to agree with you
On top of that, what the fuck was The Daily Currant’s angle? What is the inherent satire in pretending Bill Nye uses “retarded” as a pejorative? I don’t see it at all? Maybe that’s why I’ve never heard of The Daily Currant before today?
