When is the media going to address the RightWing's 'terrorist wing'?

Yet they jump all over a "left-wing" protestor who breaks a window. There is real and dangerous domestic terrorism coming from the right-wing and the media just lets them off the hook. Even today, where is the outrage?! A racist, right-wing, neo-nazi, white supremacist that was a Tea Party activist & Sen. Russell Pearce's good friend went on a killing spree! He even killed a 2 yr old girl, not to mention 2 men & 2 women.

Then there's this Tea Party leader, Oath Keeper, and all-around asshole Charles Dyer aka 'July4Patriot', who raped and sodomized his 6yr old daughter. Oh, and they found a grenade launcher in his house as well. He even spoke at many Tea Party rallies and his Youtube videos were adored by the right-wing:

And our side can't even break a window without having all of the media outlets calling us "violent".

The right-wing is literally KILLING this country. From abortion doctors, to random killing sprees, to racial beatdowns, to shooting congresspeople (Gabby Giffords). Media, address the terrorist wing of the right-wing! Enough is enough! They've ALREADY waged war on us!

5. its not like the media is unaware

remember a couple of years ago, the MLK day attempted bombing in Spokane? ... only Rachel Maddow covered that at the time.. it was completely ignored by the MSM.. and was only briefly noted later, when the bombers were caught in Idaho...

the only thing i can figure is that Janet Napalitano has put out the word, to tread lightly because of operatives in the field.. but speculation on my part nothing more.. in defense let me offer this observation, if we would have caught Mc Veigh, and Nichols before OK city, they would have appeared as bumbling as the Huteree Militia.. the difference between keystone cops, and tragedy is only timing..

3. At the risk of invoking Godwin's Law, the situation with regard to the media's

 

kid glove treatment of fascist thuggery today reminds me of German media's treatment of Nazi violence in the latter years of Weimar. German media routinely presented Nazi violence as 'distasteful but necessary' whereas Socialist and Communist resistance was depicted as 'hooliganism' and 'degeneracy.'

Right-wing violence suits the interests of the ruling elite, both then and now, which may explain why it often gets a 'wind and a nod' from MSM. Left-wing resistance tends to de-center the capitalist narrative and show up its many internal contradictions. Journalists (themselves mostly members of the 99%) have to provide for their families often on piss-poor salaries as is and the left does not have the media infrastructure (yet!) that will allow journalists with integrity to earn a living there.

4. the corporate media....

 

....is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the right-wing establishment....so Left-wing kids peacefully protesting become anarchists and right-wing fascist thugs become patriots....

....we need to recognize and patronize our own dedicated media outlets and ignore everything else....
