Huffington Post's 'Nightmare' Story: USA Loses to Belgium in World Cup
With all the calamities going on in the world, on the afternoon of July 1, The Huffington Post found a "nightmare" story in the loss of Team USA to Belgium at the World Cup, or so said the liberal website's headline Tuesday afternoon.
Clearly, Team USA's loss is not a pleasant story, but there are certainly other stories that seem to better qualify as a "nightmare" than a soccer game.
For instance, with the report that three innocent young Israeli teens were murdered and tortured by radical Islamists in the Middle East still fresh in the news, calling a soccer game a "nightmare" might seem just a bit flippant.
Perhaps the story of tens of thousands of illegal aliens flooding the U.S. borders, bringing disease and a humanitarian crisis, all due to loose immigration policies and the Democrats' push for amnesty, might be more of a "nightmare," especially since an unaccompanied minor alien from Guatemala has been found dead in Texas. This further denotes the disaster--or nightmare--this immigration mess has become.
But the story of Belgium beating the U.S. in the World Cup with a 2 to 1 final score, eliminating the Americans in round 16 of the international tournament...I guess that is a "nightmare" to HuffPo.
