TEA Partier arrested after shooting at GLSEN offices in DC

If my headline was yesterday's headline, do you suppose NBC Nightly News would devote just 17 seconds to the story? Do you suppose CBS Evening News would offer 20 seconds on the story? Do you think 24 hr cable news channel CNN would take almost 3 hours to offer any kind of reporting?

Jim, we are all so very tired of the double standard displayed constantly in the big left wing Corp media. It's obvious for all to see and yet nothing is done. Our only apparent recourse is to avoid the left's mouthpieces and look for alternate sources of news and information. With so many people turning away from the old media outlets and to the internet, eventually the advertisers will go where the money is.
As far as the leftist hatred being displayed, it's not given more emphasis by the press because dems and liberals controlling the press feel it's OK to discriminate, bash and assault Christians and conservative citizens...they are the last politically correct targets of the left's bigotry and intolerance. No one would tolerate this type of treatment of gays or illegals, but we're not part of the protected class (of dem voters).

Yes, it is a terrible tragedy that this violence had to happen. But the real tragedy is that people somehow erroneously link gun violence with the people who lobby to promote Americans' rights to commit violent acts with guns. It is a point of the utmost truthiness that most shootings are done by tofu-eating, library-browsing, wicker-weaving pacifist commies, and not by the gun-wielding, war-glorifying, Ted-Nugent-listening saints, heroes and patriots of the far right.

Luckily, people are turning away from the news that denies such truthiness. I hear, for example, that Loser Salon has been effectively shut down by a single tweet from Donald Trump, so there's hope in that, at least. However, radical leftist "fact-checkers" at Atlantic have pointed out that under the Ryan budget, Romney would pay an effective tax rate of .8%, so clearly Fox News and Weasel Zippers still have a lot of work ahead of them.

With luck--and especially with prayer!--we may one day be free to choose from an array of news outlets that tells us what we want to hear, rather than the elitist facts of the lamestream.

Booyah con Dios, mijos!

CF from 'Old Town', you really need to take your ADHD meds before posting. You're all over the place, running circles around the subject at hand, only vomiting up dem talking points about their pet demons (gun elimination, vilifying patriots, class warfare, etc.).
You really should have these rants tattooed on your forehead, then just submit a link to a picture of yourself and we'll get just about as much of your perspective as we can tolerate.

So, to recap: Queer supporter arms up (presumably adhering to all the gun laws the dems can dream up) shows up at Christian organization supporting a moral environment and decides to kill those that don't profess the same twisted beliefs that he does. (typical tolerant liberal who can't provide a logical rebuttal to opposing views). The MSM ignores the story except for an occassional footnote on page 17 next to the numerous Planned Parenthood ads promoting baby extermination.
That covers it...

By the way, I almost agreed with your carefuly worded opening sentence: (Yes, it is a terrible tragedy that this violence had to happen.). Except it didn't 'have to happen'---even someone with spark plugs attached to the side of their neck can't condone this type of violence. You liberals need to find another outlet for your frustrations.

"(Floyd Lee) Corkins was given a license to shoot an unarmed man by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center that have been reckless in labeling organization hate groups because they disagree with them on public policy," - Family Research Council president Tony Perkins

"Clearly, they are inciting this environment of hostility toward religious organizations," Perkins said. "And it's dangerous. We've now seen this gone beyond the rhetoric and passing of words to actually almost taking the lives of individuals."
