A shocking video making the rounds on social media claims to show a panicked crowd rush into the terminal at Kabul airport after Afghanistan fell to the Taliban — but the footage was shot in Texas.

The footage posted by several Twitter users, including by @Conflict_Zones, is actually a clip of anxious fans rushing into AT&T Stadium in Arlington for a 2019 game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks, Newsweek said in a report Thursday.

Pay attention to the dress and appearance of the “panicked horde.”

8. Eh, Kabul, Dallas, same thing.

Plus the "airport concourse" was completely empty until said horde rushed in all at once. I'm not familiar with airport transit in Kabul, but that seems unlikely.

3. So, some fantasy for the Cult45 horde desperate to exist in a fantasy universe?

Unsurprising, since there's a giant, apparently profitable industry peddling the fantasy-world crack to these delusional dead-enders.

7. What percentage of outrage Facebook and Twitter feeds are fake, and why is nearly 100%.

Talk amongst yourselves.

12. I've never forgiven Dallas for beating Detroit in a 1970 playoff game

Final score 5-0

I've actually gotten over it as I've stopped watching and following football years ago.

13. That's a real weird score...

I do still watch sports though. The only unscripted thing left on TV...

14. Read an article where it was said that was just one of 3 games with a 5-0 score in NFL history.

10. The baseball caps ought to be a giveaway

It's not like Americans and Afghanis dress alike.
