I’ve been waiting for this moment. With so much careening through the fan this week, the 24-hour news cycle was bound to provide us with some unintended gold eventually. I wasn’t sure on which direction I expected the disaster to come from, though. Was it going to be a caller going rogue? Perhaps something a little too edgy for national TV would be broadcast during one of the many protests and parades occurring across the country this weekend. The only certainty I was aware of was that one of the major news channels would shit the bed. That winner was CNN.
The men and women at CNN were busy reporting on gay pride celebrations around the world this morning when they came across what they thought was an ISIS battle flag. The fear invoked was understandable, especially after France, Kuwait, and Tunisia all felt the wrath of terrorism less than 24-hours ago. They scrambled the international reporters and a “national security analyst” to analyze what they believed to be a developing security scare story. They treated the picture as if the city was on the verge of a major disaster. Was ISIS bold enough to wave their battle flag in the middle of such a public celebration?
Nah, they’re not. In fact, ISIS wasn’t present at all. Instead, it was just a dude waving a flag covered in buttplug silhouettes.
Check this out.
The very effeminate, white male waving the flag among what appears to be at least hundreds of revelers was such an imminent security threat, not a single person in attendance thought twice about his massive flag. Lucy knew what she saw, though, and was sure to report it to the London police, which certainly saved thousands of Londoners from one helluva fabulous attack..
