We’ve all been hearing about the college admissions cheating scandal, each time it is mentioned ( which has been pretty much on a daily basis ) we hear the names Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin. I don’t condone the wealthy buying all of the advantages they can in life, a hell of a lot of young people want to go to college but can’t afford to do so and so they never get the opportunity. That being said though have we learned nothing from the Covington uproar that condemned school kids before having all of the facts, or the Jussie Smollett scandal, which fueled the already touchy racial issues in society as well as making the MAGA supporters look like nothing but haters!
Here’s a novel idea, why not wait until all of the facts are in before passing judgment and throwing stones? It’s disgraceful how quick people are to condemn others based on loose facts reported by press that we’ve all come to learn is one sided and always supporting only ONE SIDE of any story they see fit! I’m not saying that these people aren’t guilty of what has been reported about them, I’m saying that no one should form an opinion until ALL of the facts are in. Sadly, if there was any mistake in accusing these people or they if should be found innocent, the damage has already been done to them, a load of people have already played judge and jury and have locked them up and thrown away the key.
I can’t help but wonder how fair the justice system is ( or is not ) in this country, if a court must find 12 impartial people in any trial where there has been extensive media coverage, already tainted media I might add, to give the accused a FAIR trial, how can they find even twelve in a society so quick to base their judgments on only a fraction of the facts? It’s a terrifying thought isn’t it, if you were the one being accused of a crime?
In spite of all of this, Smollett’s life will never be the same after this even if by chance he is found innocent, Huffman and Laughlin will find it difficult to escape the damage done to them (especially in their line of work), guilty or not, and the Covington teen will also never be able to forget the ordeal he went through because of snap judgments. Bullying and ruining lives is never okay, especially when someone is not guilty of what they are accused of. Buying an education/degree is never okay just because a person has more money than the majority of folks and are probably of the mindset that any and every thing can be bought! And it is particularly disturbing that there were those people that had the audacity to say that people of color are still being abused and that the MAGA supporters are ones doing most of the abusing, taking the Pelosi and her henchmen approach and aiming potshots President Trumps way! In the usual Democratic, blue, zealot fashion blame Trump for everything, everyone else’s bad behavior (including their own), the flooding in the west, the avalanches, the snowstorms in the north, the democratic following psychos that lose their marbles and go nuts and the epidemics we’re already seeing because of all of the illegal immigrants flooding the country that Trump has tried six ways to Sunday to stop, yeah, blame Trump! It’s all his fault right?
It’s interesting that Trump has been saying all along that the news reporting agencies are full of falsehoods, constantly staging stories and reporting fake news when they are supposed to be neutral and only report the facts. Which I’m sure is why FOX NEWS is the highest rated news channel, they report without bias only stating facts. Scary to think that if there was ever a national threat headed immediately for us, the democrats would undoubtedly want us kept in the dark to avoid panic and avoid us knowing how little they care about any of us, incase any of us survived, Trump would stand alone with FOX NEWS in wanting to inform the masses! It’s a scary society we live in that’s for sure and seeing how quick society is to judge any given situation without having all of the facts, it’s even worse. It brings to mind the witch hunts and the lynch mobs doesn’t it, the media and inter-net are like modern day versions which don’t only have Trump in their sights, and proves to all of us that if they dare to go after Trump the way they have, not a soul in this country is safe, not a soul!
