Hogs in the stream

To think people were sitting at home watching football when they could have been at Bennett College listening to the TRC panel debate whether or not the Klan-Nazi shooting were in Greensboro or of Greensboro.

“We’re not about the truth. We’re about hiding things and spinning the story you want to spin, and if anyone stands up and says, ‘Hey, that’s not right,’ we crucify them.”

Anyone else see the irony in that statement?
