So It Must Be Right ? Right?


This past Sunday...a rumored 150 armed White militia men took over a Government owned Wildlife preserve...

Think about the Meme above and imagine if hundreds of Black Lives Matter activists or Muslims or Mexicans took over a Federal Building and threatened war with the American Government..

Fox  News Talking heads would be labeling them domestic terrorists and screaming for their heads!

They wouldn't make it through the week alive...And you're extremely naive if you think otherwise...

Hell,A Black child can't brandish a tou gun without getting blown away...

Here is the really funny thing though...I would have never of heard of this seige had it not been for Facebook and Twitter....CBS,NBC,ABC and FOX have all been mum....CNN and MSNBC are silent...

They cover Mass Shootings and events like San Bernadino ad nauseum around the clock for days and yet...nary a peep about this...

Even the White Right Wing is baffled as to why they aren't getting any coverage...

This Oregon standoff has reignited an already intense debate on social media about policing, race and terrorism.
 
On Saturday, an armed group of antigovernment protesters took over buildings on a remote federal wildlife refuge in Oregon and warned that they would not leave without a fight. The authorities have held back rather than use force to end the occupation.
 
On social media, that led quickly to questions about a double standard, particularly from liberals and the left, who asked: What if the armed men were Muslim or black? (Many or all of them appear to be white.) Another theme was about the religion of the protesters. At least one activist has made reference to a prominent Mormon figure.
 
Some have speculated that the police would have used violent force to remove the activists if they were Muslim or black.There is nothing to speculate...They would have.
 
Some wondered why the news media and the authorities were not calling the takeover a form of terrorism.
 
People used the hashtags #YallQaeda, #YeeHawd, and #VanillaISIS to challenge a widely held perception that terrorism applies only to crimes carried about by minorities and non-Christians.
 
The leader of the armed group in Oregon is Ammon Bundy, the son of Cliven Bundy(Remember him?), a rancher in Nevada who last year engaged in an armed standoff with federal officials, gaining the support of leaders in the conservative movement, and then losing it after declaring that black Americans would be better off as slaves.
 
As expected...many conservatives on Twitter criticized the debate, and said it was a step too far to call the men terrorists, and pushed back against memes that perpetuated stereotypes about white people.
 
Others objected to the criticism of the lack of force used by the authorities by drawing comparisons to past deadly standoffs between the federal authorities and armed groups that harbor antigovernment sentiments.
 
Worth recalling lessons of Waco and Ruby Ridge before suggesting FBI should simply go to war with Oregon militiamen,” an observer wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
 
In 1993, a gun battle erupted in Waco, Tex., ending a 51-day standoff between federal authorities and members of a religious sect called the Branch Davidians. The fighting resulted in the deaths of four federal agents and half a dozen members of the sect.
 
A year earlier, a confrontation in northern Idaho between the authorities and Randall Weaver, a white separatist, led to the fatal shooting of his wife and son. A federal marshal was also killed during the conflict, which came after an 11-day standoff. In 1995, the government awarded $3.1 million to Mr. Weaver.
 
Hmmph...The government should award some money to the mothers of Trayvon Martin,Tamir Rice and Sandra Bland among others...And police should learn some lessons from these killings like the Feds have supposedly learned from the Waco and Ruby Ridge affairs...
 
But those involved White People...So I guess that makes it different!
 
Go Figure!
