Sgt. Major Dan Page sees things in black and white. Them and us. Good and evil. There are no grays, there is no nuance. He is good. You are evil unless you believe, like he does, that all men being created equal does not mean affirmative action is good, or that black men fall into the realm of all men.
He was the guy that shocked me with his disrespect as he shoved CNN's Don Lemon around a couple of days ago.
Here is Mr. Page ranting for the benefit of what appears to be a group of Oathkeepers. Lots of anti-Obama, anti-government rhetoric tossed as red meat. Also, Mr. Page is a former
Army Ranger Green Beret. *
I've posted the entire video for now, but I'll try and mash up some of the better clips from it and post it later.

Black and white. Men and women. Government is not of, by, or for people. Them and us.
That's one of the guys policing in Ferguson's neighborhood. He's a St. Louis County cop, but this week he's been "helping" in Ferguson.
*About the correction: There's some confusion online, but a few minutes into the video he says he's a former Green Beret, so that should clear that up.
