Is it me or is it every time there is some disaster facebook turns into the politically correct olympics? Let’s be honest here, previous to today you were pretty used to the instabillity in the middle east, and you didnt really care too much. But now there’s some coverage of an event on American turf (by American/western media), everybody jumps on the god damned band wagon with “omg biased media only cares about america not the iraqqqq”. Of course western media is going to cover it, its a western issue that is relevant to the people who would be reading said media (ie having a much higher chance of knowing somebody involved). In Iraq im willing to bet that they dont cover the boston bombings as much as the one’s on their soil, and there probably isnt a ton of attention seeking retards spamming facebook asking why. Posting a status about how you’re thinking about people’s struggle, is not political activism, its just a cry for attention and likes. #2edgy4u #picrelateditsmyfacewhen #facebookwhiteknights
