Watch the part where he compares Fox coverage of Portland with the Fox coverage of the Bundy’s taking over federal land.    It starts about 1:25 minutes.  Hugs

  1. WOW! The contrast is way too stark. I almost forgot about the Bundy incidents even though they were threatening local authorities. Not to mention in Oregon in 2016, Cliven and his militia AKA Yall Qaeda threatened cops and took over a federal building with barely a peep from Fox News and the cops didn’t even come until weeks after they occupied it.

    • Hello Ospreyshire. Yes, true. It is like when armed white men stormed the capital building in MI and got in the faces of the police yelling insults and threats. Yet no arrests were made. Yet unarmed people doing a peaceful BLM protest on the Governors lawn got arrested. There is definitely a double standard in policing isn’t there.

      Speaking of Portland, the feds did not come charging out and surprise the protest was peaceful. Pretty clear who was causing the trouble there doesn’t it. Hugs

      • Sure thing. Very good point about that protest and how soft the cops were there. That is a huge double standard.

        Exactly and it’s quite infuriating.

  2. Scottie, I read a good op-ed piece, I think in The Guardian, that said Trump knows he overplayed this hand. So, did Nixon when he sent the National Guard to Kent State University. Keith

    • Hello Keith. Interesting when the feds did not come out and attack the crowd the protest last night was entirely peaceful. So it is clear what was driving the violence. Hugs

      • Scottie, it tells me three things. The troops enflamed the situation. Some of the more violent prone protestors saw opportunity. And, it would not surprise me if there were a few wolves in sheep’s clothing from the right there to stir up trouble making it look like protestors. Anything is possible in the Age of Trump. Keith

        • It’s happened before … and there’s video proof. So you’re right-on in your assumption that “anything is possible.” 🙂
