A media double standard in Oregon

First, there is an absolute media double standard. When college kids take over a university administration building or when left-wing activists try to take over a state capitol building, the media treats them as conquering heroes echoing the sit-ins of the civil rights era. But when a group of people protesting federal land laws and policies take over an empty park visitors center, suddenly it is an invasion and the people must be stopped…

Second, just because there is a double standard does not mean any conservatives should be cheering the one when opposing the other. I’m pro-life, but I’m not going to cheer someone shooting up an abortion clinic. I support the sell off of federal land and giving priority water and land use rights to farmers. But I’m not going to cheer taking over a park visitor center or threatening marshals.
