This is pure, unfiltered White Privilege. There is no other explanation for this. Here is what a CNN law enforcement analyst, Art Roderick, had to say about the white
terrorists militia group in Oregon.
Roderick told CNN host Brian Stelter on Sunday that law enforcement should not react with force to end the militia’s occupation of the federal building.
“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.”
Stelter pointed out that many activists had complained if the militia members were “Black Lives Matter protesters or if these were peaceful Muslim Americans [then] they would be treated very differently by law enforcement.”
“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.”

Just to recap. Roderick said that just because these armed white men, who have taken over a federal building, have not looted anything, there should not be any force shown by police. Hello! They have taken over a Federal building. It’s not their building! They do not own it! Plus, they are armed!!! If these people were non-white, this place would be bombed and on every news station.
Welcome to America. The hypocrisy of our democracy.
