So, if there’s one thing you learn when you interview students over the death of Osama bin Laden… it’s not to interview students over the death of Osama bin Laden.
Still, a NY1 reporter went to a Brooklyn school, and found out that students were “not worked up” over binny’s death – but more interested in “weekend gossip.” Apparently, bin Laden doesn’t mean too much to teens, for they were too young to absorb “the impact of his terror.”
Meanwhile, Yahoo says that 66 percent of those searching for “who is Osama bin Laden” were ages 13 to 17.
I guess that beats “what was 9/11?”
Which brings me to some recent tweets, from various teens.
Groydis writes: “Who is Osama bin Laden, and why should i care?”
Asteriot adds, “Who is Osama bin laden? is he famous? am i the only one who don’t know who he is?”
Apparently not you idiot – since Corey-ealtman ponders, “who is osama and why is it important we killed him?”
God help us all.
But, hey, at least they have an excuse. They’re teens.
Unlike Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall, aka Captain Jackass.
Babbling ON Twitter, the dope sneered at the joy expressed over bin Laden’s death, while questioning what really happened on 9/11.
“It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak.”
So, I guess gleefully taking credit for the murders of Americans isn’t enough reason to hate someone?
But hey, maybe if the loved ones of 9/11 victims heard bin Laden speak, they’d find out he’s a great guy!
Anyway, needing to flaunt his own moral superiority, Mendenhall belittled the pain suffered by millions.
Rashard, thank you for keeping the “dumb jock” stereotype alive and kicking.
You’re a role model for our inquisitive youth.
