Oh no, self-reflection!

condemned the animosity toward “our traditional heroes,” institutions such as elections and law enforcement, the education system, the system of government, and “traditional values of fair play, free speech, and religious liberty

Maybe try not undermining literally every single one of those if you don’t want people questioning them? (Except maybe the “traditional heroes”, those live in hagiographic stasis on the right side of the political spectrum)

They definitely don’t want people questioning this:

“America is a fundamentally fair society with bountiful opportunity” whose “original sins have been honorably, if belatedly, repudiated.”

It all reads like this, “Sorry you got angry, but calm down because there’s no inequality, injustice, or oppression in this country. That was all in the past! We need to put statues back up on their pedestals, join hands, and pretend everything is perfect here - while we burn all the history books that led folks away from traditional ideas.”

Definitely quotes like this

our ancestor patriots

Should make the thoughtful USians question where they’re coming from and what they’re aiming for :unamused:
Those who haven’t already seen the writing on the wall, I mean.

The total number of injuries was not immediately unknown, nor was the identity of the shooter.

Videos posted to social media from different angles appear to show two bodies in the parking lot outside the supermarket surrounded by first responders.

In one video, a white man in army fatigues can be seen being taken into custody by police.

In another, an injured person is being wheeled on a gurney.

I’m honestly not shocked. There’s quite a few of the y’all qaeda types around here.

Gawd, Tucker is such a fucking illogical moron. Every time I see a clip of his I’m more disappointed in my fellow Americans that they swallow his garbage.*
So, what, Tucker? You want the government to give you a new bike? wth?
And, if you really want your vote to mean the most it can, move to fucking Wyoming. There you go. :woman_shrugging:t2:
(His “summer studio” isn’t a far drive from where I live, and I’d be happy if he never graced my state again.)
*But they are listening and it’s working, as this most recent tragedy shows.

carlson’s show apparently is often clipped and repeated on supremacist sites. and the “love” goes both directions

Fox News and host Tucker Carlson look closely at minute-by-minute ratings that show there’s an appetite among its audience for talking points embraced by white nationalists

Enter the “shocked, not shocked” gif.

Also:
“Nativist forces” ?

So, they’d be totally fine with improved tribal rights, I’m sure.

yeah. unless it was a call out to rage against the machine (/s)

Some of those who work forces, are the same that burn crosses

news hour did an interview with the reporter, and he seemed pretty straightforward about the hate that carlson has been knowingly stoking. so maybe/probably that’s the nyt editors at work again

So a white supremacist domestic terrorist drove three hours to go and kill Black people

Exactly what I’d guess Klye Rittenhouse was hoping to do, when he traveled far from home for a BLM protest.

Fucking hell.

I wonder what the press coverage would look like if, instead, he’d driven to a diner in Iowa and shot a bunch of agribusiness farmers actually getting that much in gov’t handouts every year.

from npr, nyt, abc/disney, etc (msm?)…
nada…
that would be a non-story in our media environment. “farmers getting welfare?” just does not register.

Oh, surely, but I mean if a violent young dude with a manifesto traveled over state lines to murder them. I imagine it would be like chicken little up in the news rooms. :roll_eyes:

hmmm. why does that sound familiar? oh, yeah… @milliefink said his name upthread.
but really, is your hypothetical farm subsidy recipient-murdering militia type a rittenhouse nazi, or a omfg! a blm/ antifa “terrorist”. (meaning, obvs, teh black)?
there’s your story breakdown in this stupid timeline and “both sides” media environment.
tl;dr - race IS the story and the media will play that for all the $$$ they can get.
i am so very tired of this bullshit.
i think we all are.
