Read This! Mass Shooters ‘End Up Being Democrats’ - Snopes cite by Huffington Post

GOP Congresswoman Claims Many Mass Shooters ‘End Up Being Democrats’

Quote:
The fact-checking site Snopes found that an online list purporting to show that assassins are more likely to be Democrats was, in fact, wildly flawed: Among other errors, it simply ignored any mass shooting known to be committed by someone with Republican or conservative views, and it identified shooters who were not Democrats as Democrats.

I'm going to have both these statement fact checked by Snopes, as they seem to be fake news!

I dunno. With all those good guys running around with feathers, someone's bound to be knocked over who doesn't deserve it. Probably by a Democrat.

I'm concerned about all this feather talk. Feathers lead to tickling, people are tickled pink, and Communists were called "Pinkos".

It all fits.

Well, that's just the price of being able to defend yourself from bad guys with feathers.

Instead of good guys with feathers, we should get trained attack eagles. They have the most feathers, the best!

It's too early to talk about feathers.
