What Do You Call White Guys With Guns?

Christopher Ingraham: “A bunch of heavily-armed white guys walk into a federal building, declare that they’re in charge of the place and say they plan to stick around indefinitely. What do you call them, exactly?”

“In the interest of clarity, here’s how 15 major media outlets are referring to the group as of Monday morning. To keep the tally manageable, I’m counting only the first reference to the Oregon group in either the headline or body of the main story on the standoff on the organizations’ websites.”

“Of the 15 outlets I surveyed, six are describing the group as either “armed activists” or “armed protesters.” That includes The Washington Post, along with all three major cable networks and two network news outlets.”

    Hoover, Director of the FBI, proclaimed the Black Panthers the “single greatest threat to the internal security of the United States.” So at a minimum that’s what they are being called right ?

    Rank hypocrites. These so-called patriots are receiving thousands every year in government largesse, paid for by US taxpayers. Ammon Bundy even got a $500+K loan from the Small Business Administration, which loans to citizens when the private market will not.
