How to talk back to Factlessicans

Are your children Republicans? Do you feel oppressed in the checkout line at Safeway? Does your neighbor have a Trump sticker on her car? Does your co-worker speak Faux News at you? Are you tired of the media telling you what they know that isn't so?

LaMonte Fowler, at the Huffington Post, comes to your rescue and says to your tormenters Read This Before You Say Anything Else About ‘Taking Back America’

Here are just a few examples.

Speaking of facts... there actually is a difference between facts, opinions and propaganda. You should learn the difference. (Another opportunity to show off your mad reading skills.)

Science is real. We know things because of science. Don’t be afraid of it. You have an iPhone and Facebook because of science. It’s your friend.

Be nice to the people who teach your children. Don’t send them nasty emails or yell at them. Their job is 10,000 times harder than your stupid job. You are not a professional educator so just shut your mouth and be thankful someone is willing to teach your offspring.

ISIS is not an existential threat to the United States. We do not need to rebuild our military. Our military is the strongest, scariest, most badass killing machine the world has ever seen. So stop being afraid and stop letting politicians and pundits scare you.

Now prepare for your next interaction with the Factlessicans: Read This Before You Say Anything Else About ‘Taking Back America’
