Angry White Guys with Guns, Feel Free to Terrorize the Country!!
Bundy et al., the perpetrators of the armed takeover in the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, have been acquitted today.
The message: You can be an armed terrorist, just as long as you’re a bunch of white guys.
As many have pointed out, had this takeover been perpetrated by ‘non-whites’, the result would surely have been quite different.
The treatment of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe‘s protest is a prime example of this double standard. Bundy et al were armed to the teeth, took over federal land and offices, threatening people with firearms, but were not bothered by the authorities, who decided to let the terrorist group operate as it saw fit.
Contrarily, the unarmed Sioux were immediately and violently imprisoned, even though they had no weapons, and were on their own land!
If that’s not a clear double-standard, i can’t figure out what is!
