I don’t know if these two things are related, but certainly it can’t be ruled out. Last week ABC News aired a heavily edited interview with Juror B29 from the George Zimmerman trial. You have to give them props, they sure were good at editing. The headline that got all of the attention was “Juror B29: Zimmerman got away with murder,” even though she only was repeating what her interviewer said. A few days later, a hate crime took place in Maryland. A white man was beaten and robbed and told “This is for Trayvon Martin!” Something tells me Eric Holder won’t be deploying taxpayer resources to investigate that crime.
The media went along with the race hustlers and turned a local crime story into the end-all, be-all case on race relations in the United States. I’m thankful that it didn’t happen during a Republican administration, or things would be even worse. We’d hear that “white Hispanics” are gunning down young black children in the streets thanks to the GOP. At least now we’re only hearing about “white Hispanics” gunning down black children in the streets. Either way, that meme is entirely wrong and doesn’t address the facts, just like ABC’s slicing and dicing of Juror B29′s interview doesn’t address the facts.
Just as a side note: The other day at work a coworker of mine, who is normally on the right side of things, snidely asked the biggest lib in the office “Did you hear that George Zimmerman saved a family from a car wreck?” The white lib, who got her job because her mom is the office manager, answered “They must have been white.” The one who is supposedly on our side laughed. She doesn’t get her news from blogs, she gets it from the MSN website. How long she’ll be on our side remains to be seen. In the meantime, she’ll probably continue sucking up to the lib who occasionally abuses her verbally. As for me, I just try to do the job I’m getting paid to do, but these conversations I can’t help but overhear sure are distracting. I had a lot to say, but it was neither the time nor the place to discuss these matters. I guess that’s why I have a blog. Maybe I’ll just suggest that she change her home page to Drudge, or any other website that isn’t in the tank for the Democrats and their man-made race war.
