More Trouble

First we had race riots in France, now we're having them in Australia.

What did you expect in an increasingly polarized world where the "have-nots" see less and less reason to believe they will ever receive fair treatment and the "leader of the free world" has been heard to make remarks indicating he sees himself as leading a religious crusade against Islam?

In this country, the current administration has no qualms about whipping up fear or hatred around religion or skin color. Looks like we're "leading" the "free world" down the path of bigotry, violence, and repression.


Update: For an interesting view of how Fox(not)News covered the Paris riots, see this story.
