"The Fair Work Commission didn't find that unfriending someone on Facebook constitutes workplace bullying,"

It's sad that news needs to have a title that's sensational and completely wrong only to be corrected by said article at the very end.

I've noticed that seems to be the case in a lot of articles I read (many of which are posted here!)-- that the title is sensational and eye-catching, but the facts contained within the article are much more mundane.

I try to post little news blurbs or paragraphs rather than titles: I think that gets the gist of the article across better than click-bait.

I honestly have no words for this bullcrap.

Trigger warning, blatant Anti-Semitism and SJW-isms.

I mean, the declared message of being anti-circumcision is decent enough. It sounds like they had an alright idea that was overshadowed by all the anti-Semitic crap that's too apparent to ignore.

Well, bad news all around.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/george-zimmerman-solidifies-his-lowest-life-form-status-by-retweeting-photo-of-trayvon-martin%E2%80%99s-dead-body/ar-AAeSp5F?ocid=mailsignout

I don't know if this is true or not, and I'd recommend waiting for more information before flying to your keyboard in a rage.

George Zimmerman. Who you may remember as the man who shot Treyvon martin (allegedly in self defense). Apparently retweeted a photo he took of Treyvon's dead body.

Perhaps an attempt at posthumous Revenge on the person he believes ruined his life?

What's he really got to lose anyways? A large segment of the population has already demonized him and the rest have moved on from yesterday's news, so this may just be a misguided attempt at getting back at all the people who have had it in for him the past few years.

I don't feel like I'm in a position to determine whether he was innocent or guilty of the charges levied against him, but this is still a pretty stupid move bringing all this back up to the surface. He just needs to change his name and go live in Alaska or something at this point.

Zimmerman's recent pastimes also include hawking Confederate flag paintings in support of a "Muslim-free" gun store.
