Media Warns Excessive Forgiveness Could Set Back Outrage Narrative Hundreds Of Years

(Satire)
(Or, is it?)



U.S.—Media outlets are issuing warnings that excessive displays of forgiveness and mercy could wreak havoc on hundreds of years of outrage progress. The warning comes in response to a high-profile case this week in which former police officer Amber Guyger, who is white, was found guilty of the murder of Botham Jean, a black man, in his Dallas home. Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Brandt Jean, Botham’s younger brother, made a victim impact statement, saying he forgave her, setting back race progress hundreds of years. Brandt then asked the judge if he could give Guyger a hug. The judge foolishly allowed it, setting back race relations hundreds more years.

"What people have to understand is, if we keep toying around with all this grace and mercy stuff, this whole racial divide could come toppling down," explained Brad Hunter of CBS News. "Are people really ready to say goodbye to that? I must say that, as a journalist, I, for one, am not."

"What Brandt Jean did in that courtroom sets black people back hundreds of years. If I had to put a number on it, I'd say it sets us back about 2000 years," said Janelle Taylor of ABC. "What year does he think this is? 33 AD?"

"This deals a heavy blow to the progress we have made toward peak outrage," said Jenson Hughs of CNN. " We have a lot of work to do in the wake of this mess."

Many reporters say that, while it is true that the Bible calls for forgiveness, there are no scriptures that say black people should ever forgive white people. "I don't know what Bible they are reading," said Hannah Corley of the Washington Post. "I've searched Bible.com for the term 'forgive white people' numerous times and nothing comes up. Sounds like bad Bible-ology to me."

"We will rebuild," said Roy Mathis, CEO of the LA Times. "Progress may have taken a hit today, but we've recovered from worse. We will survive."

You're no journalist. You're a scab, a worthless scumbag.

Just like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, these assholes NEED a racial divide to keep in business. They NEED an agenda of made-up racism, white supremacy, and a Bad Orange Man.

These people are sickening.

Turn up the gain on your satire detection circuit.

Take a breath, oddball, and read the source. It's satire.

Got it.

Guess I did not read the word "satire"in the title. But the story is believable, that is how insane the state of the news media is nowadays.

You are forgiven, oddball.
After all, with today's social situation we can consider your initial response as a "conditioned response".
It wouldn't surprise me if the left took this and ran with it.

It took less than a week for that satire to become reality. Vanity Fair published the linked op-Ed two days ago. Yup no room for forgiveness or tolerance - that is just not “reality”.

They were responding to the Ellen - Bush friendship, but same sentiment. Fascists.

Ellen cannot be friends with bush

Wow, that Vanity Fair article sure does play fast and loose with history. It pretends that Bush was solely responsible for Iraq (Congressional resolution, 9/11 anyone?), and that he purposefully allowed the Katrina suffering. Prior to Katrina, FEMA supported the state response, a response that was bungled by the Democratic government of Louisiana.

These people really are Nazis, right down to the rewrite of history.
