'Liberal Media', Why Is This Not Domestic Terrorism?
And what is the media reaction to this event? Cricket chirping silence.
There has also been the laughable and credibility straining extremes that various media outlets like the AP and ABC News took to avoid calling the armed thugs terrorists or this a domestic terrorist incident.
The only reason it is even beginning to get any coverage at all is because people have been all over Twitter and on social media calling out the blatant hypocrisy of the initial coverage along with the silence of the major networks about it.
Still haven't heard the call for the Oregon National Guard or the local sheriffs to deal with this situation as was done in Ferguson and Baltimore.
And as you probably guessed, the Whiteness and White Supremacy Protection Brigade are rushing out to do their online defense of VanillaISIS and come up with every excuse to defend their actions of taking over a closed for the holidays federal building.
As a matter of fact, I suspected this would happen again after the 2014 Nevada standoff involving Cliven Bundy and friends, and the feds letting them walk in order to allegedly avoid bloodshed.
Guess when it comes to white lives, you'll do everything possible to do so. When it comes to non white peeps, we get no such considerations whether we're armed or unarmed.
Far from dissuading them from taking it to that level again, it has emboldened these vanillacentric privileged domestic terrorists to try it again. This time law enforcement and the feds need to drop the hammer on these thugs so they never even think about seizing another federal or attempting another action like this again.
But then again, the media and the conservative movement are desperate to cover up the fact that when it come to domestic terrorism in the United States, the face of it is an overwhelmingly white male conservative one.
We'll see how this latest incident plays out as the week progresses.
