Remember when President Obama won his second term and citizens were signing petitions for their states to secede? The mainstream media were quick to lecture and condemn the signers. Never mind that those who signed the online petitions were merely trying to send a satirical message knowing full well that a petition directed at Obama could never possibly get anything more a curt response from an Obama minion.
So now unions in Michigan -- good friends with Obama and facing new laws that give workers a *choice -- respond with a violent assault on conservative film maker Steven Crowder. A Michigan state representative threatens there will be blood. And Jimmy Hoffa predicts civil war.
All of this makes the secession petitioners seem pretty tame. But the mainstream media want to ignore it, and the downstream media will follow their lead with Fox News the only one reporting what the networks ignore.
And once again President Obama will have out maneuvered his political opponents with the sun in their eyes and the media wind at his back.
*Choice -- a word loved by liberals in other contexts is now an unholy wrong when it gives workers a right to control their own paychecks.
