Reprinted with permission from TomDispatch

If you still follow the mainstream media, you're probably part of the 38 percent of registered voters who knew something about the op-ed Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) published in the New York Times early in June, exhorting the president to use the Insurrection Act to "restore order to our streets." This was in response to what he called "anarchy" but others saw as peaceful Black Lives Matter protests.

Well!
