People couldn’t believe the picture and story that the Boston Globe tweeted the other day. It was a picture of a KKK party burning a cross and swastika like they’re at a fun loving family reunion. Then the Boston Globe made it seem like a normal everyday thing where groups of white supremacists were gathering to talk about how they’re going to unite and do great things together, basically normalizing “white power” groups.
Then the Boston Globe deleted the Tweet, which made them look even worse because then the entire Internet mocked them for it. Either leave your story posted and let the world have their way with it, or don’t post it at all. Some people are wondering if they were hacked, the editor was intoxicated, or they simply made a really stupid decision. Either way, the Internet ROASTED them really bad for it. The Tweets below make a bad tweet turn into a hilarious goldmine of laughs.
White supremacy and doing things in the picture below are not something that should ever be normalized. That would be the equivalent of saying it’s OK for Black Lives Matter to gather in neighborhoods and loot stores. None of that behavior is acceptable and should not ever be normalized as if it’s an everyday part of people’s lives that is acceptable. You don’t have to tolerate or enjoy the company of everyone, but burning crosses like the KKK or burning down stores like BLM should be things you try to avoid.
And maybe someone should relay that information to whomever posted this for the Boston Globe.
