Everly Brothers: Bowling Green
February 19, 2017
In remembrance of victims of the Bowling Green massacre, and all imaginary terror events across the world.
During a campaign-style rally on Saturday in Florida, Mr. Trump issued a sharp if discursive attack on refugee policies in Europe, ticking off a list of places that have been hit by terrorists.
“You look at what’s happening,” he told his supporters. “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?”
Not the Swedes.
Nothing particularly nefarious happened in Sweden on Friday — or Saturday, for that matter — and Swedes were left baffled.
Old Intel saying. “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action”.
However, there was no terror attack in Sweden on Friday. Perhaps, as some Twitter users suggested, the attack in Sweden happened in the same parallel universe as Kellyanne Conway’s fictitious “Bowling Green massacre.”
Press Secretary Sean Spicer was recently busted for citing a fictitious terror attack in Atlanta. When called on it, Spicer said that he meant to say Orlando.
With relatives and friends of the victims of the real terrorist attacks on 9/11 protestingthe Trump administration’s exploitation of the tragedy for political gain, perhaps members of the administration, including Trump himself, are feeling the pressure to create more “alternative facts.”
