Armed and ready for what, exactly?

The New York Times told me that the 9/12 march was about jes' folks protestin' big government.

The article mentioned the fact that some signs compared Obama to Hitler, but no photos of any such signs made it into the NYT's slideshow of the event.

They also managed not to notice any of the confederate flags and other expressions of racism on full display.

I don't know why the Times feels it is helpful to the country to use its reporting to soften the image of these dangerous, paranoid radicals.
