Wrong Again, Mike Bara

Last night, as the unspeakably awful story from Dallas was unfolding, Mike Bara tweeted:
"Just gonna stay up until they tell us the Dallas snipers were Muslims"
Hope you've got plenty of coffee, Mike. In this case, prejudice is its own punishment.

From BBC News today:
"Micah Xavier Johnson, who was involved in the killing of five US police officers in Dallas before himself being killed by police, was a US army veteran who had served in Afghanistan.

The 25-year-old was a private who did a nine-month tour of duty from November 2013 after serving in the Army Reserve for six years, the US military said.

Johnson acted alone and had no known criminal history or ties to terror groups, authorities said."

Well, after all, we ARE talking about a man who sees ancient cities on the moon. This guy makes his living by jumping to conclusions. I seriously wonder if anything he says anymore could ever embarrasses him anymore.

Embarrassment would require a level of self-awareness that Mikey is incapable of. The difference between him and Hoagland is that Hoagie knows he's full of shit, Bara doesn't. To put it another way, if ignorance is bliss, Hoagland's former coauthor is the happiest man on Earth.

Well, if you believe everything the BBC tell you you might as well believe Bara....

Don't agree. The Beeb is a far more reliable source. But thanks for the comment.
