I certainly think the media is getting a wake-up call with what is happening in Ferguson. They’re being arrested, called the n-word and threatened with being killed. On live television!

You know, when people are that delusional and hostile to their fellow humans, I’d say the labels fit. I’m not saying we should all be turning the other cheek; just not flying into outrage, because it doesn’t work.

And we are just going to have to disagree about police: I think police CULTURE is the problem now–not just training–and we need national policing reform to curtail it.

We need especially to ‘work the refs’ in the mainstream media with the same vigor that the Tea Party extremists do. We need to shame the MSM from perpetuating false equivalence that in effect legitimize the tactics of the Neo-Confederate wing. Why do these guys walk away, claiming victory after pointing heavy weapons at Federal agents at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, while a young woman at a NYC Occupy protest does jail time for reflexively giving an elbow to a cop who grabs her breasts from behind unexpectedly? We’re not going to change the really toxic right-wing types, but we need to de-legitimize them as a force in politics.
