You can get away with saying anything these days.
Nasty innuendos have become so commonplace it's hard to sort out the bull pucky from the the truth.
It doesn't have to be true to travel on the Internet or social media/mainstream media.
Political hacks are having a field day during this election cycle. Innuendos and accusations are flying around like a flock of buzzards.
Look no further than our two major party candidates for president.
"Hillary Clinton has epilepsy, is autistic, and falls down repeatedly," Donald Trump and his Trumpettes claim without a shred of evidence to prove it.
It doesn't matter. Just hearing outrageous, sometimes oblique remarks about race, is enough to fan the fires of hate.
Because we have free speech in this country there's always people that want to see how far they can take that concept. There are those who want to tell lies without reprecussions.
By alluding to something such as - "I heard President Obama wasn't born in America" - you keep a lie alive. Trump has used that lie as a platform to attract hardcore Republicans since 2012.
Suggestive and disparaging innuendos should not be tolerated in any form. It's the tool of bullies and partisan hacks this year, much to the disgust of most Americans.
We must demand...
That all innuendos have to be backed up with verifiable facts.
FYI: Sexual Innuendos are a different subject altogether. Just not today's topic.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
