Lots of BSery going on.
@TKDMike pushed this image out on 07-16-16 at 1902 EST trying to portray that Cleveland is burning dumpsters tonight for the 2016 Republican National Convention.
That image looked weird to me.
So let’s look a little closer shall we?
A simple online search found this exact image used multiple times.
Once as a meme for protesters in the UK
Yep. That’s weird.
Then the same image, slightly better quality found on imgur from 10 months ago.
Again, double weird.
Then I found the original.
Game-7 from the Stanley Cup in 2011. Appropriate photo credit to Brian Neumann.
In the initial @tkdmike post from 07-16-16, he has embellished the image and added the Quicken Loans Arena logo and an RNC2016 logo to the dumpster. Additionally, behind the gal on the right is also a photoshopped sign for Trump2016. **Clearly against the orig photo by Brian CA Neumann on 06-16-2011 on Flickr. The sign should not read “Trump 2016”, it should read “Sunrise Kitchens” – also note the hockey jersey.
Doctoring images to push political agenda or incite fear = not cool.
Canada image from 2011 –> fake it to be a Cleveland image in 2016 = not cool.
It’s going to be a long NSSE.
