Occupy Freak Arrested After Threatening To Murder Governor Nikki Haley

I'm sure you remember an alternate reality we lived in, not much more than a year ago, in which the media were extremely fond of reporting on political movements' tendencies to incite or perpetrate violence.

But it was all a dream.

Wait, what's this rose doing on my pillow...?

It was all a dream... or... Was it...?

When 26-year-old Nathan Shafer heard about the arrests of 19 Occupy Columbia members outside the State House last Wednesday, he did what lots of people do when they get angry — he vented about it on the Internet. He saw Gov. Haley’s Facebook post about the arrests and Haley’s comment that she “appreciate[s] freedom of speech,” and that’s when authorities say Shafer crossed the line.

“I hope someone murders you before I do,” Shafer said he commented on the post. “How’s that for freedom of speech?”

It is one of the most breathtaking not-even-hiding-it double-standards and unambiguous proof of profound bias that the media has not done any comparable coverage on this. A stub story here, an obligatory news blotter piece there; but none of the magazine cover, flood-the-zone linking of the Occupy movement to violence.
