‘Network’ was a documentary
And a reminder from David Cole that “fairness” is for children…
There are many examples of incidents that disprove the meme that the Oregon occupiers would have been immediately slaughtered had they been “of color,” and this one’s my personal favorite: In March 1995, a bunch of thugs took over the downtown L.A. office of the L.A. Conservation Corps, a government-funded “community service” nonprofit created by Clinton administration secretary of commerce Mickey Kantor. The LACC paid inner-city youths to “plant trees, remove graffiti, and clean up after disasters.” Naturally, the youths in question decided that those jobs were racist, since none of the available employment opportunities were fit for the descendants of African kings and Aztec emperors.
After one month of trying to wait out the occupiers, you know what the authorities, with the LACC’s blessing, decided to do? They gave the entire building to the protesters. Yep—they just handed it over, and the thugs turned it into a “peace and justice center,” and a performance space for the band they formed during the occupation…a band that is currently signed with ICM, one of the largest and most prestigious talent agencies in the world.
