The Onion Wins The Internet

I'm not going to post a link because I don't want to be banned.

Just go to theonion.com and search for No One Murdered Because Of This Image is it isn't still on the front page.

Since when does posting a link to a story get you banned?

Look for the story, and you will see why! Personally I think the satire was spot on. But yeah, one of the Onion's more graphic pieces!

Yeah, you would not want to post the graphic, but the point is well taken. As the facts have come out, though, I am not sure if anyone's death was really as a result of this latest film, either.

It isn't the root cause, but it was used to create a protest to provide cover for the ambush.

Of course the film was the cause of the riots , looting , arson and murder , if it wasn't these people would have to be held accountable for their actions.

There have been arrests. It is too soon to know who will be accountable for actions.
