CNN Analyst: White Militiamen Aren’t a Threat Like Black Protesters Because ‘They’re Not Looting Anything’
CNN law enforcement analyst Art Roderick demonstrated the blatant media bias and racism that exists in current news coverage when he discussed the recent armed takeover of a government facility in Oregon.
A group of armed militiamen seized the Malheur Wildlife Refuge headquarters on Saturday.
Roderick asserted that the militiamen weren’t a threat like black protesters because they didn’t resort to looting everything.
“The last thing we need is some type of large confrontation because that’s when stuff goes bad,” Roderick explained. “And I think in this particular instance, if we just wait them out, see what they’ve got to say, then eventually, they’re all going to go home.”
“This is a very rural area,” Roderick replied. “It is out in the middle of nowhere. What are they actually doing? They’re not destroying property, they’re not looting anything.”
“I mean, there’s a whole separate situation going on as to exactly why they’re there and that will be worked out through the legal process,” he continued. “But I think now that they’ve taken over this location out at the fish and wildlife, this brings in the federal side. And I know the federal government has learned over the years how to deal with these types of incidences.”
