War Footing



This is the lead image and headline at DR this morning.  Is this what we can expect from the right wing at the height of humanitarian crisis?  Of course, the wide angle and the viewers low vantage only makes this more imposing — and that’s without the drawn guns.

…And, did Matt realize all the soldiers are white?

UPDATE (4:30 pm PST): I happened to catch some FOX News today, and even watched FOX and CNN side-by-side for a while.  It was hard to believe these two outfits were looking at the same event.  CNN was focused on the logistics of emergency relief.  FOX was speculating on large scale civil disobedience.
