Friday Fictioneers: Spoon Fed

Marty considered himself a patriot. On September 11, 2001 when the planes flew into the World Trade Center in New York Marty stayed glued to his cable news show. He watched in horror as the drama played out.

He continued to watch and was again horrified when his fellow countrymen elected a black Muslim to the White house, and then, reelected him.

Marty worried about the fate of his nation as he watched the reports of blacks rioting in the streets and Muslims murdering innocent Americans.

As a true patriot Marty knew there was only one answer: make America great again.

  1. This is what happens when you get your information from Fox News, I suppose. They can turn a fundamentalist Christian gunman into a black Muslim in an instant. Engaging (and enraging) story. I had such hopes this time last year, too.

  2. I have to agree with J Hardy on the Fox News things. We can’t believe everything we hear on TV or neat slogans. We have to think, we have to look beyond ourselves and even our own points of view. Marty is a scary guy himself and he doesn’t even know it. Great write!

  3. I know a lot of Martys. They are good-hearted people, but easily follow the loudest voice in the crowd, trusting what others tell them rather than finding out for themselves.

    I’m very concerned about the future of our country. But for right now, I’ll reserved judgment and pray for the best.

  4. I don’t see many efforts to “bring the country together again”. I still see a lot of tweets and hear a lot of tall. Seeing is believing. I also have a bad feeling about all of it. Good writing, Dawn. Happy Holidays. —- Suzanne
