Piling On!

In football, piling on is a penalty.  Not fair, the rules say.  I’ve been noticing how piling on is a staple, voiced by those who comment on what’s going on in the world.  It doesn’t matter what side you’re on – it’s still piling on.  For example:

The evil Koch brothers are spending a fortune to promote their political agenda.

Belichick and Brady are doing bad things to innocent footballs.

Republicans are more anti-Obama than pro the good of the country.

Obama doesn’t have the personal political touch that Bill Clinton had.

Russians, and especially Putin, are bad guys.

Iranians can’t be trusted.

Our government is gridlocked.

Health care costs are out of control.

Lobbyists and unrestricted spending control politics.

Income inequality, the cause du jour, will destroy America.

Global warming will destroy humanity.

Etc., etc. . .

Choose your poison.  It doesn’t matter what you’re talking about.  Say it loud enough and long enough and you will be believed.
