Could Have Picked a Better Date

I'm all for smaller government and gun rights, but today? Really?

The media is already painting the movement as a bunch of racist rednecks upset over having a black president, and then rallies are held on the anniversary of the OK City bombing?

That's serving up a big media "I told you so" on a silver platter, folks.

Gotta be smarter than that.

Unfortunately you are right. The OKC Bombing anniversary had more relevance on the news so far. The 2A March might be a weird 20 second footnote at the 6 O'Clock News.

That's what bugs me most. The media and the Democrats know full well that we chose this date because of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, but they deliberately slander us (and yes, it is slander) with the acts of a psycho, and of a tyrannical gov't. Of course, the media spin Waco as the act of a religious nut, who "deserved what he got", but this was the act of a tyrannical government who had been defied, and twisted as it was, OKC was revenge against the gov't for Waco.

Does the media narrative matter when a large portion of said media's audience doesn't think they're being fair OR accurate?

Unfortunately, pistolero, I fear that more of them believe the media narrative than disbelieve it.

I've been monitoring the TV since noon.... Unless I missed something during a bathroom break, there hasn't been a peep. Day Life website reports 500 people in attendance.
