In a predictably paranoid propaganda puff piece published on page A15 of today's national edition entitled "In An Ocean of Firearms, Tucson Is Far Away", the reality shapers at Amerika's newspaper of record sneer at the people attending the "Shot Show" in Las Vegas, the largest gun show in the country and, indeed, in the world.
From the article:
"Throughout the day, the lively crowd - overwhelmingly male, representing gun shops, the military, and law enforcement - traipsed through fields of booths that displayed... rifles, ammunition, silencers, camouflage gear, knives, bulletproof vests, night goggles, holsters and, of course, pistols, including pink and in lavender."Hey, night goggles sound cool to me. But I digress...
Note the way the Times points out who was at the gun show: "overwhelmingly male." As if that is a crime.
You know that the mental patients of 42nd street were dying to write: "overwhelmingly white male;" I would wager that the original draft of this article by veteran Times communist Adam Nagourney did in fact say that, but Nagourney's editors nixed it, saying they had to keep the propaganda a wee bit more subtle.
But the Times quickly makes up for this lack of subtlety by printing the following large-format photo in the second part of the article on page A19:
