Diatribes and double standards: Unbelievable side-by-side tweets from Salon

A side-by-side image of two actual tweets from Salon is rapidly going viral.  It appears that Twitter user Kevin Schaffner put the original comparison together.

One was tweeted out in April 2013, and reflects the sentiments of a post by Wajahat Ali after the bombing of the Boston Marathon by the Tsarnaev brothers.

The other tweets out a post from Thursday (18 June), by Chauncey DeVega, about the massacre in Charleston.

The side-by-side comparison pretty much speaks for itself.

It is worth adding a tweet from Sarah Leah Whitson of Human Rights Watch, who seized on the Charleston killings to imply, with snide sarcasm, that white people are Islamophobic.


Never let a crisis go to waste.
