Murdering Racists…

29 March 2012

A sad, sad commentary on racism

I was not going to comment on the current situation in Sanford, Florida. To be true, I was far too disgusted by the media’s response to it (no surprise there). I was far too disgusted with the knee-jerk attempt to immediately portray the dead youth as a victim of a heinous, racially-motivated, Republican-fueled hate crime.

As I sat being disgusted by this coverage, my mind couldn’t help going back a few years to an incident in Knoxville, TN. You recall the incident? Probably not. It received absolutely minimal coverage at the time. Let me refresh your memory:

A young couple, university students with bright futures ahead of them, went out on a date. They were carjacked, kidnapped, raped and tortured by four individuals. The torture, while alive, is beyond comprehension. They were beaten. The male was repeatedly sodomized while the female was forced to watch. The kidnappers then cut his penis off – while, again, he was alive and his girlfriend watched. They then dumped him on some railroad tracks, and set him afire. Sick bastards.

To cap their evening off, they repeatedly and variously gang-raped the female, cut her breast off, poured bleach down her throat – again, she was alive during all of this – and, finally and probably mercifully dismembered her and set her remains on fire.

Bright futures extinguished by four sick bastards who clearly do not deserve the lives within them.

Could you imagine this? Could you imagine enduring something like this? What kind of sick minds would do such an act?!

And not a peep from the press. Compare this with our current “victim” who allegedly beat the crap out of someone and got shot for his efforts – whether or not Zimmerman was justified in approaching him is not the point. This young man, according to recent accounts, broke Zimmerman’s nose and was engaged in smashing his head into the pavement when he was shot. Kind of puts the whole “who’s the victim” question into a new light, doesn’t it.

So, why no press of the former? Why no outrage from the jacksons, the sharptons, the farrakhans of the world? Why no egregious tweets from the likes of spike lee, or special investigations from the government? Because the victims were white, and the sick bastards who perpetrated this inhuman, ghastly crime were black. That’s why. At least that is the rationale of the press (www.youtube.com/watch?v=btdya9uOA8Q).

We, the People may be post-racial. But the racist whores which are the  jacksons, the sharptons, the farrakhans, the Øbamas of the world; the race-baiting media – they’ll never get beyond it. Not so long as there is power to be had from it; money to be made from it. They’ll never let it go.

Again: if you buy a newspaper – if you watch the evening news, you are providing aid and comfort to the enemies of this country.
