Shout The relentless rising tide of angry speech

Quote:
Then there is the relentless e-mail beat of ugly little morality tales, dozens of them like the one about the Budweiser employee who was making a convenience store delivery on 9-11 when he came upon "the two Arabs who owned the business whooping and hollering to show their approval and support of this treacherous attack."

Naturally, the Bud man pulled his products with "an incredible grin." Soon all the other area vendors did the same.

The kicker? "At last report, on June 26, 2009, Fareed Katib closed the store and filed bankruptcy! A good old American Passive-Aggressive A$$ Whoopin!"

It's also a good old American lie (See www.snopes.com/rumors/budweiser.asp) told and passed on endlessly for what reason?
