TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@mtracey) Two years ago, blaming the outcome of the 2016 election on Facebook memes and Twitter trolls would’ve been an outlandish joke. Today, it’s a core tenet of conventional wisdom, after countless Congressional hearings, media scare stories, and Official Reports™. Beyond disturbing. Tweet.
  • (@Education4Libs) I think it’s funny how the people who don’t know which bathroom to use are trying to teach us about climate change. Let me educate you. Climate change is a globalist hoax designed to exert more money & power towards a one world government. Anybody with half a brain knows this. Tweet.
