Phillies games run late, already planned post-game fireworks show runs late, idiots think like the idiots they are:
There aren't enough facepalms in the world for me right now.ONE PHILLIES doubleheader + one rain delay + six extra innings + one controversial court verdict = one fierce fireworks kerfuffle early yesterday morning. The Xfinity Fireworks Show lit up South Philadelphia skies about 1 a.m., the latest - or earliest? - such celebration many stadium neighbors could remember.
Bad weather booted Friday's Phillies game to the next day, prompting a doubleheader Saturday, with extra innings in both games...So the fireworks, which should have happened by 11 p.m. instead crept into the wee hours of the morning. Meanwhile, aghast newsies from Philadelphia and beyond who heard fireworks - those in South Philly and elsewhere - assumed they were sent into the skies by racists celebrating the Saturday-night verdict in Florida's George Zimmerman case.
Sana Saeed, a senior editor at Islawmix, a project of Harvard Law's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, tweeted: "People were afraid a guilty verdict would have resulted in riots," wrote Saeed, who is based in Canada. "Thank god #Zimmerman's verdict only resulted in white pride fireworks."
What a ma-roon. That's what happens when you're a Liberal. You have to see everything as race based or your entire philosophy, agenda and belief system breaks down.
