Here are just a few words and phrases I would use to describe social media: garbage, hateful, vile, a waste of time, mind-numbing, IQ-lowering, mental-illness causing, to name a few.
The latest example is what happened in the aftermath of the alleged dustup involving a few boys from Covington Catholic School at Friday’s March For Life. Full disclosure: I was there and saw nothing but exemplary behavior among the hundreds of thousands in attendance. As usually happens with this sort of thing, some brave keyboard commandos set out to identify, scourge, threaten and harass the most prominent figure in the video. Trouble is, as is also common, they got the ID wrong. This led to an innocent teen and his family to be subject to harassment, intimidation and even death threats. These leftist gutter-dwellers should be ashamed, but they have no shame. Ends justify the means. Frankly, nobody who is threatened in this manner has to worry since the people doing it are gutless cowards.
