Caught your attention with that headline, right? But, why?
Because of it’s undeniable and blatantly racist connotation.
Problem is … That’s not an actual headline. Nor is it an actual news story. But this is…
Liberal group calls Romney too white for blacks to like
Bet your ass if that headline read the way the original does, it would be national news.
The message is delivered via video produced by a liberal group headed by an ex-Media Matters executive, and includes such gems as – Romney is so white, he makes Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel … or something.
As is typical, the message hides behind the facade of being a ‘satire’ or comedy. And they will get away with it.
In advance of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s speech Wednesday to the NAACP, a liberal group headed by a former New York Times reporter and ex-Media Matters executive have produced a video “satire” that claims blacks don’t like Romney, who they dub so white he makes “Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel.”
The YouTube from “The Message,” an online “media hub,” is described as a satirical video of Romney getting advice on what to say to the civil rights group. Or, as they said in a release, the video “lacerates Romney and his advisors as they prepare for his speech to NAACP in Houston on Wednesday.”
The lead “advisor” in the video is described as the brainchild of the 1988 Willie Horton ads and the 2004 swift boat campaign. He states bluntly that “blacks don’t like us and we’re about to give a speech to a whole lot of them.”
Here’s the video…
Satire or not, this video is meant to plant the thought that Romney is your typical rich, white guy who can’t relate to the average African-American.
Now imagine a Tea Party group trying to produce a rebuttal to this and see how it would be reported. Would they be able to call it satire? Or comedy?
Or would they be branded racists?
The autopsy of Trayvon Martin has revealed two injuries to the young teen – the fatal gunshot wound and bloody knuckles (video below).
WFTV has confirmed that autopsy results show 17-year-old Trayvon Martin had injuries to his knuckles when he died.
The information could support George Zimmerman’s claim that Martin beat him up before Zimmerman shot and killed him.
The autopsy results come as Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara continues to go over other evidence in the case.
O’Mara wouldn’t comment on the autopsy evidence, but WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said it’s better for the defense than it is for the prosecution.
Not only does this bolster Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense, but it deals a terrific blow to the media who has cast the man as guilty from the start.
But there’s more…
Additional medical reports show that Zimmerman had a fractured nose, two black eyes, and cuts on the back of his head the day after the confrontation with Martin.
One has to wonder if this new information will make the FBI rethink their strategy of possibly charging Zimmerman for a hate crime.
On Monday, WTFV had also reported:
Unless hate crime means you hate getting your face pounded into the concrete, the FBI’s pursuit of such a charge would be blind appeasement of race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
Remember a time long ago when people were considered innocent until proven guilty?
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous was in town on Wednesday for an event called, “Why Me? Racial Profiling in the Wake of the Trayvon Martin Shooting.” He took the opportunity to denounce racial profiling, but then immediately followed the event with some profiling of his own.
Via the Times Union:
Jealous spoke with reporters after the conference, and welcomed the news that George Zimmerman was now being charged with second-degree murder.
But while he may have denounced racial profiling in no uncertain terms when describing the Trayvon Martin shooting, Jealous tossed it around rather casually when describing the Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg.
Jealous added, “We have Mayor Bloomberg jacking up Syrian-Christians thinking that they’re Muslims in New York City because they run a bakery with a Middle Eastern name,” he said, “and jacking up Muslims because they’re Muslims, not because they’re criminals, and throwing young black men up against the wall probably because the police are afraid to go after young white men. Why? Because in New York City there ain’t no poor white men. No poor white people in New York City anymore. Those movies are about the Bronx or Brooklyn. Little Italy is a movie set at this point. And there are very few young rich black men, boys in New York City, walking home from school. And yet they get thrown against the wall, too.”
So Jealous believes that the police will only go after young black men because they’re too afraid to go after young white men – because there are no poor white men in the city. Really? Not one? Aren’t you kind of…. profiling?
Also, noticeably absent from Jealous’ comments was a letter written to the NAACP which killed the media-driven narrative that Zimmerman’s actions were racially motivated. Excerpts from that letter include:
“You will recall the incident of the beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer. The beating sparked outrage in the community but there were very few that stepped up to do anything about it. I would presume the inaction was because of the fact that he was homeless not because he was black. Do you know the individual who stepped up when no one else in the black community would? Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church-goers to get out of church so that he could hand them flyers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??
That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN.” — from a letter to Turner Clayton of the Seminole County NAACP written by “a concerned Zimmerman family member”.
But hey, that would ruin the narrative. Jealous is simply continuing the tradition started by his other race-baiting colleagues, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Their motto? Racial profiling for me, but not for thee…
50-Year-Old White Man Beaten Severely by Black Teens in Same Town as Trayvon Martin – Crickets Heard Chirping
Where, oh where, are the professional race-baiters now? Where is the national outcry?
Via Weasel Zippers:
The below story doesn’t mention the victim’s race but another local station’s newscast identifies him as white.
(Orlando Sentinel) — A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two men in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford.
Julius Ricardo Bender, 18, and Yahaziel Isaac Israel, 19, face charges of attempted first-degree murder, burglary with assault or battery and armed burglary.
The victim, a 50-year-old Winter Springs man whose name has not been released, is on life-support at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Deputies were called to the area of Lincoln Street and Beardall Avenue about 6:30 p.m. March 26 to investigate a report of a man being beaten, Seminole County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Heather Smith said.
They found the victim in the woods on the north side of Lincoln Street.
According to arrest affidavits:
A witness told deputies he heard someone screaming for help and saw two men pull the victim from his vehicle. He said he watched as one man held the victim and the other beat him in the head with a hammer.
After they dragged the victim into the woods, the men drove away in his sport utility vehicle, which was later found abandoned about a half-mile away on Garbo Jack Lane.
Divided States claims the attack happened at a very coincidental time:
A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two black teens in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford, Florida, the same city as the Trayvon martin case on the same day when Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and New Black Panther’s leaders rallied to protest a tumped-up racial profiling case with Trayvon Martin.
Making that leap in judgment seems a bit premature, and would make any declaration that the race-baiters fueled this attack no better than the mainstream media. But let’s see how many news outlets actually report this case. I’m taking odds that it will be far less than the Martin case.
But, but, I thought this was a white and black issue. Well, surely he’s a right-wing, gun-toting conservative. Right?
Via Free Beacon:
The individual at the center of the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting is a registered Democrat.
George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.
It is unclear whether he voted for President Barack Obama in 2008.
Some in the media have sought to blame Republican politicians and conservative activists for Martin’s death.
“[Republican politicians] reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African-Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance. In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences,” said MSNBC political analyst and Democratic fundraiser Karen Finney.
According to the document, Zimmerman’s race is officially listed as Hispanic. The son of a white father and Peruvian mother, he has been described as a “white Hispanic” in most media reports.
The entire media collective should be doing a facepalm right now.
Report: Trayvon Martin Tried to Grab Zimmerman’s Gun While Attacking Him, Witnesses Corroborate Story
The liberal media will never let the facts stand in the way of a really good race-baiting story…
The neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin said the Florida teen physically attacked him and tried to get his gun, ABC News reported.
The Orlando Sentinel reported Monday authorities said on the night of the Feb. 26 incident and in subsequent meetings George Zimmerman described and re-enacted what he said happened. He told police he had followed the youth because he was behaving suspiciously but turned around after losing sight of him…
… Zimmerman told authorities he was walking back to his sport utility vehicle when the 17-year-old approached him from behind. The two exchanged words, with the teen asking the Zimmerman volunteer if he had a problem and when the man replied no, allegedly said something to the effect “Well, you do now,” the Sentinel said.
Zimmerman said Martin knocked him to the ground with one punch, then jumped on him and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times so hard he was bloodied and battered, the Sentinel said. He said he then shot Martin, who was unarmed, once in the chest from close range in self-defense.
ABC News reported a police source quoted Zimmerman as saying the youth had tried to get his gun.
And then, there’s this…
Authorities told the newspaper much of Zimmerman’s account has been corroborated by witnesses.
