Imagine If 2 EPA, Not ICE Offices, Had Been Shot At

Imagine if the offices of two federal agencies had been shot at after a sustained campaign of hate, intimidation and threats by political radicals backed by the entire weight of a political party and its associated media?

We don't have to imagine that one too hard after a second ICE office was attacked. The shooting was predictably buried in media reports.

But imagine if two gunmen had targeted EPA offices after sustained conservative protests and tweets by President Trump.

You know exactly what the media coverage would have looked like. It would have denounced, condemned and assigned responsibility. There would have been lots of talk about extremism.

Instead the media doubled down with attacks on ICE personnel for doing their jobs.

The gunmen going after ICE know that they can expect covering fire from the media.
