Media And Political Responses To The Bundy Militia (If They Were Consistent)

The Bundys are up to their shenanigans again, this time perpetuating a terrorist attack… er.. I mean, disgruntled second amendment public demonstration… against Oregon. Fortunately they just took over an abandoned federal building and nobody has been hurt yet. But I have really found it interesting that the media coverage about the situation seems a little biased. So I imagined what the headlines would look like if everybody was consistent in their coverage. Now I recognize that the situation is a different because nobody has been hurt yet, but these headlines are not too far off if our politicians treated Mormons the same way they treated Muslims or Black Lives Matter activists.

  1. Hello and don’t forget that the Mormon Church at one time didn’t want Black people in their church. And yet they send young people to the continent of Africa to preach and convert Africans. The irony!

    Thanks for the moderation.
