Sure, the Bowling Green Massacre Is Fake, but That Doesn’t Mean We Can’t Mourn Fake Deaths

It isn’t funny. Thousands of fictional people lost their lives! Fictional families are still in mourning trying to pick up the fictional pieces that have been scattered since the fictional Bowling Green Massacre!


And it is disrespectful for us to collectively make fun of this fictional tragedy just because it didn’t happen.

Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, who is a real person made up of lies, told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: “I bet it’s brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green Massacre. It didn’t get covered.”


Conway is right; it is brand-new information. It’s called lying, and I think it’s way too bogged down in facts right now. I’m with you, Conway. Let’s continue to make up shit to blame Muslims for so that we can justify treating them in a fucked-up way.

Below are a list of other fictional deaths for which radicalized Muslims are responsible:

The Mufasa massacre:

The Thelma and Louise massacre:

The Ponyboy massacre:

The Red Wedding massacre:

The Jack-from-Titanic massacre:

I have more of a problem with Chris Matthews. Why did he let so many lies go unchecked?Allowing bold face lies just for access isn’t worth it, especially this time around. PEETOUS isn’t going to act right, ever. So just inform the public on his/their bullshit.
