So, the usual schtick

Right-wing conservatives can be hypocritics, idiots, torturers and perpetual war-mongers running for higher office just to set themselves up on life's grand buffet tour. But for the Left it always comes down to being dirty fucking hippies, the media -- even those mocking the media -- can portray them no other way. As Digby noted it has usually been that way, May 1970:
"Who do you think was primarily responsible for the deaths of four students at Kent State University?"

Eleven per cent placed responsibility on the National Guard, 31 per cent expressed no opinion, and 58 per cent put the blame on demonstrating students.
If another Kent State happened now FoxNews would make it into the greatest patriotic moment in history then they would move on to decrying whoever in the Islamic world is the protest crushing Monster of the Day.

Somebody needs to be hauled in front of Congress this afternoon to explain why DHS is busy coordinating suppression of legitimate political dissent. And somebody needs to ask 0bama what he knew and when he knew it.

Either that or just start cutting the DHS budget. They obviously have way too much money to spend.

Nasty knuckledragging fucktards then bred nasty knuckle dragging fucktards now.

O'Blowme should be impeached for financing and coordinating the attacks on Occupy.
