'Why Does Organizing For Action Hate the Mentally Challenged?'


In their four years of covering Tea Party-related rallies and protests, the MSM has made their policy abundantly clear: when it comes to political protests, the one crazy outlier in whatever random mass of thousands of people show up at a particular event, the one nutter who carries the sign comparing Mr. Obama to Hitler, or waves the Confederate Flag, or openly brandishes a firearm, represents the views of the entire group.
