Daily social distance show with Trevor Noah today presented two arguments for federal law enforcement intervention.
In a montage depicting various actors talking about the presence of federal lawmakers in Portland, Oregon, the Daily Show showed the same group of people who debated federal intervention in 2014 a few years ago. In the case against Nevada ranch Cliven Bundy.
Bundy was an independent rancher who argued over whether he had the right to allow his cattle to graze in the federal states.
Oregon protesters are attacking federal buildings as part of a protest that began as part of George Floyd’s uprising, but has recently become a somewhat vague demonstration on Antifa Street that even the Portland NAACP president claims has distracted.
In Bundy’s case, the government confiscated his cattle, so his fellow ranchers and others supported him in opposition to the government’s perception when the two sides collided.
In the Portland case, lawmakers are trying to protect federal property from damage or destruction for those who oppose the system and want to change it.
Does the montage show media hypocrisy? Or a comparison of apples and oranges in two completely different situations? Watch the video and decide for yourself.
