Inhuman Humans

RT Ian Goodrum ‏ @isgoodrum

"When expected North Korean fatalities increased from 15,000 to 1.1 million, preference for using nuclear weapons increased from 38 to 49 percent."

We need to come to terms with the fact significant portions of the US population are demons made flesh.

Maybe I saw a somewhat different article when I followed the link a bit later, at "2019-06-25 19:00:32.285224+00", because I found only a different version of the text you quote (from Ian Goodrum's tweet?)

'"When the number of expected North Korean fatalities increased from 15,000 to 1.1 million, preference for using nuclear weapons among respondents who favor the death penalty increased from 38 percent to 49 percent (although this is not a statistically significant change)," the report found.'

The difference being 'among respondents who favor the death penalty'.

It's still pretty horrible if you don't hate North Korean babies:

'"For example, while 'only' 33 percent of the US public prefer a US preventive nuclear strike that would kill 15,000 North Koreans, 50 percent approve."'

Of course, I'm assuming that newsweek.com won't change that quote before you get a chance to look at the article again.

Thanks: The Twitter quote could also have been wrong, and I missed that when I skimmed the article.

It does make me think that people who support the death penalty are even more misguided.
