In an MSNBC news story titled “Police allege Michael Brown was involved in robbery before shooting“, it quotes Civil Rights icon Rep John Lewis as stating the following DoubleThink:

“…The U.S. Attorney General’s office launched a civil rights investigation into the circumstances surrounding the 18-year-old’s death. The FBI is also investigating.  Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights icon, said Obama should declare martial law to federalize the Missouri National Guard to protect people as they protest...”

Martial Law, Federalize, protect…to USE the Police State apparatus as a protector of civil rights?  This is a perfect example of diametrically opposing terms that slap the face of cognitive thinkers everywhere…
