Anger, Alcohol, Social Media And Video Cams Make For Dangerous Exposure (GRAPHIC LANGUAGE VIDEO BELOW)

twitter-logoThat little blue birdie looks so harmless and cute.  It’s not harmless and cute.  Today it’s Rupert Murdoch, who for whatever reason, recently sent out a Twitter tweet which said, in part, “how about a real black president” – for which he is now apologizing.  Used in haste, without carefully weighing one’s words before left-clicking that mouse, that Twitter gizmo can be very dangerous to one’s reputation.

It’s not too smart to send social media messages in anger or while drinking heavily – tweets for the entire world and all its people to see.  I have no idea if Mr. Murdoch was drinking when he sent the tweet out to the world.  With thanks to Drudge, here’s part of the report on his apology from The New York Daily News:

Rupert Murdoch on Thursday apologized for his controversial tweet a night earlier in which he said America could use a “real” black person in the Oval Office.

The media mogul said he meant no harm with the tweet, in which he praised 2016 Republican candidate Ben Carson and took a thinly veiled swipe at President Obama.

“Apologies! No offence meant. Personally find both men charming,” Murdoch tweeted Thursday morning, following a massive backlash to the original tweet.

“Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black President who can properly address the racial divide? And much else,” the 84-year-old tycoon tweeted a night earlier.

The incendiary swipe at the commander-in-chief sparked outrage from celebrities like Star Jones and actor Harry Shearer.

“The day I start allowing @rupertmurdoch to define what it is to be #black …is the day I turn in my #blackcard,” Jones tweeted…

Well, that just does it.  Celebrities are angry!  You can read the entire NYDN report by clicking here.

I don’t care what color the President is.  I would like to have a President who places the interests of America first on his priority list.  The last four presidents we’ve elected were globalists.

Speaking of social media, phone cams, YouTube and too much alcohol to drink, here’s some footage from the New York Post via Michael Savage of a young University of Connecticut student who got himself arrested while on a macaroni and cheese tirade inside the campus food court.  He just didn’t know when to quit and go home, where he’d have been safe:

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
