Grenier Slammed for 911 Instagram

We all know that Hell hath no fury of that of a woman scorned
Not as well know is the fury of a celeb believing that from a script wisdom is born
Adrian Grenier is not the first nor sadly will he be the last
Who believes his acting from a script makes him an expert on the future, present and past
The world has long since learned to the rants of Hyde Park orators discount
Even as more and more on soap boxes mount or are shouted at to dismount
But in the world of social media such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook “celebs” passing themselves off as wisdom seers
Can do so much damage beyond the proximity of a Hyde Park listener’s ear
Grenier posted a RIP for the victims of the 9/11 attacks
Then picked out of thin air sympathy for over a million and half victims who to their families will not be coming back
Reasonable men can the reasons for Iraq invasion to debate
In hindsight no WMDs and removing this tyrant lid would be violence for Iraqis to quickly await
But Obama chose to fulfill his campaign promises to our presence in Iraq cut and run
And today ISIS with all its beheadings and terror is Obama’s policy son
Iraqis, Syrians, Libyans, and Christians whose cheeks have been turned too many times
Are braving death and destruction to flee from growing Assad and jihadist crimes
Grenier faced a lot of flack for his Instagram and numbers picked out of thin air
But at least he suggested all lives matter, a belief that Black Lives Matter do not share
