Domestic Terrorist

18 Aug

It’s amazing how the tone of a news story can change when the face of the “terrorist” changes. According to this article on CNN.com, a man showed up to an Obama protest rally in Phoenix openly carrying an AR-15. He also had a pistol on his hip. About a dozen others in the group were also armed.

There was no blood running in the streets and nobody made threats. They were simply exercising their 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms, in accordance with local laws.

Wait, that doesn’t sound right. The GFW’s at CNN would normally have run the story thus: Gun owners are a bunch of racist rednecks who hate the President because of the color of his skin, rather than the content of his character, right? A dozen of them got together and peacefully demonstrated, without violating any laws? How can that be?!!!

So, why was this news story so forgiving? Why weren’t there screams of “racist” and “domestic terrorist?” Well, for one thing, the gentleman was in a shirt and tie. Oh, and he is black. Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Go check it out.
