On Friday night, Sean Hannity continued his look at the unprecedented “health care rebellion” that is sweeping America.

Watching this now-familiar “town hall” footage once again, anyone not blinded by ideology can clearly see that the anti-Obamacare protesters really are run-of-the-mill citizens expressing genuine concerns, as is their right (and, some would say, their duty.)

FOX News is one of the few media outlets presenting those attending these health care town halls as what they are: ordinary citizens.

Which is the heart of the “problem.”

The Left has spent decades romanticizing protesters, but only as long as they fit an an approved, predetermined stereotype: young, slender and attractive, colorfully clothed, and not quite sober.

Today’s “tea partiers” don’t look anything like that, of course. They aren’t “cool.” They wear un-ironic golf shirts. They look like they get their hair cut at the local mall and prefer Dunkin’ Donuts to Starbucks.

But the “tea partiers” also aren’t skinheads or wear white robes or Nazi armbands, or burn crosses. The Leftwing media simply cannot cope with this “cognitive dissonance” (which is just a fancy name for “finally being tripped up by one’s own stubborn ignorance.”)

An armed African-American man protesting an African-American president? “Why, that was never a Law & Order episode! Noam Chomsky never warned us about this!”

So MSNBC reacts by… disguising the man’s racial identity because he doesn’t fit their narrative — and hoping nobody notices:

But remember, America: journalists are your moral and intellectual superiors, and you are the gullible racist ideologues! Got that?
