Please? Don't Feed the Meme. It Hurts My Head.

Last Sunday I read this;
"A crackdown by Mexican immigration officials along the nation's southern border appears to have yielded major results before the U.S. 2014 midterm elections"
 "The federal report admitted that a significant draw for Central American minors to come to the U.S. was the fact that 98 percent are ultimately not deported. "
We get lied to, the problem is papered over and press moves on ?! nothing new. moving on.
"New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and 17 mayors from Seattle to Atlanta pledged to share expertise on implementing President Barack Obama’s executive order providing relief for undocumented immigrants."
New York...; de Blasio...;  ?! moving oh
That is on top of him warning his kid and retraining the police with the understanding their racist and just need to lean to talk to the community better ?!

Maybe the Feds will calm. Obama:
“Beyond the specific issue, that has to be addressed – making sure that people have confidence that police and law enforcement and prosecutors are serving everybody equally – there is a larger question of restoring a sense of common purpose.”
 ?! Ferguson mayor James Knowles III on DOJ
 “I mean, I think it was really just trying to get people to understand what that [white privilege] means, because the average white person wakes up and says, if you’re just a middle-class white person, you say, What privilege do I have?”
 white privilege = cop shooting... ?!

Then on top of the "yes means yes" nonsense, the UVa case turns out at best to be really bad journalism. Then you get this:
 Ultimately, though, from where I sit in Charlottesville, to let fact checking define the narrative would be a huge mistake. “These events undoubtedly do occur here,” first-year Maddie Rita told me. “And while this report has clearly had factual flaws as well as rhetorical missteps, there are plenty of other fully corroborated accounts not only at this university, but at every university around the country.”
Use...; one of them?!

That's just feeding the misogynist rape culture meme for the sake of feeding the meme. Step back and please Don't Feed the Meme?! Please?!
A conspiracy or cabal if you like.

Then the Feinstein interrogation report. Feinstein:
"There will be those who seize on the report to justify evil actions to incite violence," she said during remarks Tuesday on the Senate floor. "But history will judge us on our commitment [as Americans] and our willingness to face an ugly truth and say 'never again.'"
Granted that was from Tuesday. You knew it was coming Sunday. 
"Ugly truth" should be reserved of ISIS!? This was the less "than pretty truth". 
Only after warping reality for years do you get this. 
Geneva Convention says;  um oh we lost this fight already ...?!
Gohmert said most members had no idea what they were actually voting for when 219 members—216 of which were Republicans—approved a measure, H.R. 5759
Pro amnesty GOP leadership...; trick their own...; even behind closed door....?!
That's when my brain  stopped.
None of this is new. It was a reminder not to stare at the whole mountain at once.

note: the links where pulled via my recollection and aren't all where I got information from.
