Free Parking May 31 2018 -- 61% don't know about indictments

http://eureka.news/free-parking-34/

snip

Sixty-one percent of American adults are so ill-informed they don’t know there have been any criminal indictments in the Russian affair, much less 19 indictments and five guilty pleas. One perpetrator is already in prison and George Papadopolous is awaiting sentencing for conspiratorial and treasonous actions. Paul Manafort’s first trial is scheduled for July 24 and evidence of the many Trump cabal crimes could be exposed.

Memorial Day has come and gone; basically now a three-day weekend with mattress and car sales. A stunning number of Americans have little knowledge of WWII, that the Holocaust occurred, that millions of people were heinously murdered by Nazis and that millions more died stopping them.

In Germany, where the Holocaust occurred, it is a felony to deny the horror inflicted by their fellow citizens. What Holocaust memory remains in the US is the perverted, hated Nazi symbol proudly displayed by ignorant, hate-filled people.

Germany’s 1934 descent into inhumanity began much like our current depraved slide; blatant lies, demonizing the press, ritualized dehumanization and cruelty toward minority groups. In Rwanda, the 1993 genocide began with hate speech radio, imported machetes by hate-mongers and it ended with 800,000 Tutsi being hacked to death by their next-door Hutu neighbors.

that would be about 80 something percent? Scary, no?

I continually remind them to step away from the television and change that channel from fox and get some sunlight in that brain.
