Stop The Insurgents

The media, if it were doing it's duty would start referring to the thugs roaming New Orleans as 'insurgents'. They won't of course for fear of being labled 'racists'.

Let's look at the facts though. You've got armed thugs roaming the streets, shoot at rescuers, medical convoys etc. and the media is still referring to them politely as 'refugees'.

There are refugees, but those that would rescue them are being held off by the insurgents.

Let's start calling these people what they are.

**Note: I don't believe we should be calling them terrorists. Terrorists engage in organized campaigns of death and destruction for political or religious ends. These punks roaming the streets are not even close being terrorists.
