Warning: The Internet Can be Dangerous!

Violent Clashes Erupt at "Unite The Right" Rally In Charlottesville

This morning, I got stung by a link I shared.  The story appears legitimate, but later when I went back to print for today’s show something caught my eye."anyone of us not familiar with a source could damage our public reputations by sharing a suspicious link"

In the right hand corner was a skull logo and some lightning bolts.  Ten days ago, I would’ve thought nothing of the logo.  But, it sure looks a lot like a symbol I saw in pictures from last week’s riot in Virginia.  Again, the story appears to be quite factual and I’m sure the writer is regurgitating it from another source and also sprinkling in some personal commentary.

The website is affiliated with the Nazi movement, I think.  Why did I remove it from my social media feed?  Because anyone of us not familiar with a source could damage our public reputations by sharing a suspicious link.  In this current political climate, we’ve got to be vigilant.  People are quite eager to tie their “enemies” to dangers real or imagined.

Originally, I saw the story on LinkedIn posted by a respected media professional who appears unaware of the source.  There is so much junk floating around the Internet unless you’re very familiar with origination, it may be best to leave it alone.
