You're OK
And now time to smile at people you hate, laugh at the jokes that aren't funny and listen to someone bitch about their best friend because that's what humans do.





once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them 
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing 
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it

also the term ‘riot’ in place of ‘protest’, which fox news used a lot

I remember when the protests over tuition hikes were going on in Montreal, the media reported that protesters threw rocks at police and then police charged them with riot shields naw started hitting people. The chronology was actually the exact opposite: some people started throwing things in response to the police charging the crowd.
Never trust what a reporter tells you about protests.

are we really fucking real right now
