Just because you choose to believe a random facebook post for no other reason other than how it aligns with your personal political beliefs and fears -- over contradictory facts with actual validatable sources. . .

. . . Doesn't remotely mean those facts are fake. It just means you are making a personal choice to believe what you want.

Facts matter. Even if you choose to put your hands up to your ears and go "la la la la la" when you hear them

The number of people who have told me lately either:

"Yea, I know you're telling me this political talking point meme is false and can prove it through multiple easily validatable sources -- but. . ."

1) ". . . I think/feel/believe it's actually true so it doesn't matter what you or your validatable sources are saying. . ."

-- or --

2) ". . . It doesn't matter that it's not true because I believe (insert loosely related complaint). . ."

. . . is all very deeply disturbing.

Facts matter. Doesn't matter what side of any political argument from which you happen to be screaming. Facts matter.

And when you willfully choose to throw crap instead of speaking with authentic truth -- you just as willfully choose to devalue both your passionate position and your personal credibility to speak on its behalf.

If you still choose to believe some random facebook meme EVEN after being presented with a clear and logical counterpoint explanation that's backed by multiple sources which can be identified with 5 seconds of simple google searching (presenting additional source results which themselves can be just as well and easily validated). . .

. . .You don't want to know about whatever topic you're complaining about. You're just angry for the sake of being angry.

And you need to accept some personal responsibility for your own emotions and personal political bias.

Be better than that. It matters not what side of the topic you happen to choose to position yourself. Nothing will get done unless people choose to have intelligent conversations to identify what is true, and discarding what is not as the bs distractions they are intended to be.
