Madison Protesters. Libya
A Tale of Two Protests
My hometown newspaper, a loyal leftist propaganda
arm of the Tribune Company, has recently started hiding
all important “Nation and World” news several pages deep
inside each day’s paper.
Call me suspicious, but with the “Nation and World”
falling apart these days, I can’t help but wonder if
maybe they’re trying to avoid having to print a banner
headline that just might shed some light on who’s
responsible for the entire mess.
So today, with the Mideast on fire, and the malignant
fury of government unions spreading throughout the
American Midwest, my once highly respected hometown
paper led with yet another article about this area’s
proposed minor league hockey arena.
Again, call me suspicious, but if John McCain were
actually President right now, I have a feeling I’d really
have to dig to find out about that hockey rink.
Once I finally found today’s “Nation & World” section I
noticed on pages 10 and 11, directly across the fold
from each other were two similar pictures. One of
anti-Ghadafi protesters in Libya, the other of anti-Walker
protesters in Wisconsin.
Honestly, I compared these two photos for quite a while
and I’m still not sure which photo features the most
gruesome, vicious, facial contortions of the screaming
protesters, But one person in the Libya photo does
appear to be smiling.
Being suspicious, it appears to me that these photos
are side by side purposefully. I’m sure the editor wanted
readers to conclude that these two groups were in
solidarity against similarly evil repressive regimes. read more »
