Story not picked up by any of the Soros media.




White Teen Set on Fire by Blacks in Racial Attack; Media Silent


by Selwyn Duke Thursday, 01 March 2012
thenewamerican.com


“This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.” So spewed the attackers of Melissa Coon’s 13-year-old son, as they doused him with gasoline and set him alight.

Police, they say, are “investigating” whether this is a hate crime.

Yes, and I’m investigating whether the media is biased and if hate-crime law is applied equally. I’ll get back to you on that — in about two paragraphs.

The attack on the boy took place on the east side of Kansas City, Missouri. Fox 4 Kansas City provides some (sanitized) details, writing, “The victim is a student at East High School and regularly walks home after class. When he reached his porch, two older teens grabbed him, pinned his arms behind his back and then poured gas from a gas can on the boy. They then set the boy on fire.”

Thankfully, the teen victim had the presence of mind to pull his shirt up over his head and snuff out the flames. He was treated at Children’s Mercy hospital, having suffered first-degree burns to his face and head. And police said they were concerned about possible damage to his eyes and lungs.

The concern, however, isn’t translating into national media coverage — or honest coverage anywhere.

Of course, if you scrutinize the few local outlets reporting the story and cut and paste, you can piece the picture together. The Fox article I excerpted above provides only the vaguest hint of the attack’s racial nature by quoting Mrs. Coon as saying that her family was told “it’s a hate crime.” KCTV 5 did a bit better, reporting that the victim was white and the assailants black; however, while they quoted the attackers as stating “This is what you get,” for some reason they omitted the “white boy” part. Then there was KMBC.com, which presented the latter but neglected to explicitly identify the race of the criminals, leaving the reader to wonder if the attackers were self-hating Norwegian immigrants. But I’ve played the game and figured out that Colonel Mustard did it in the library with the candlestick.

But we’ve seen this bias before. It’s much as when Muslims rioted in France a couple of years ago and burned thousands of cars, and the media reported the rioters as “youths.”Yes, just teen angst, I suppose.

Some may say that the media are reluctant to stir up racial unrest, but this never seems to stop them when the races of the victim and attackers are reversed. Could you imagine the hue and cry if two older white teenagers had set an innocent black child alight while saying, “You get what you deserve, black boy”? The headlines coast to coast would be cast in neon, and the media would love it — it would give them another chance to agitate for more hate-crime legislation.

This is exactly what happened after the horrible dragging death of black victim James Byrd by three white men in 1998; it was headline news for months and led to the creation of a Texas hate-crime law. Meanwhile, when three “youths” beat a cab driver and his passenger while shouting racial epithets in Philadelphia recently, D.A. spokeswoman Tasha Jamerson said that hate-crime charges wouldn’t be forthcoming “because there was no evidence that the assault had been motivated by the race of the victims” (no, just the racial hatred of the assailants). Also in 1998, there was the murder of homosexual Matthew Shepard, which became an even bigger story and likewise was used to justify hate-crime law. Yet what about the brutal death of 13-year-old Jesse Derkhising, who was sexually tortured by two homosexual predators in Arkansas a year later? Oh, you don’t know what I’m talking about?

Exactly.

WorldNetDaily.com reports that a Nexis search shows a disparity in the story counts between the Shepard and Derkhising cases of 18 to 1.

Of course, any time you report on a crime motivated by group hatred it can foment unrest, as hate begets hate. But if some think this a justification for suppressing truth, they should note that peddling only half of it can be far more dangerous. As Jack Cashill observed when commenting on the refusal to report politically incorrect “hate crimes,” “The cumulative effect of such routine suppression leads minorities, especially blacks, to think themselves uniquely victimized.” And when you thus believe, you’re more likely to lash out.

Obviously, the job of the media is to report what’s newsworthy. This means not just picking the relevant stories, but also the relevant facts within them. If “people” are attacked for going to school in Afghanistan, it is absolutely relevant that all the victims happen to be female and all the assailants male fundamentalists; this lends the story perspective. Likewise, if virtually every one of thousands of rioters is of a specific group or a victim’s attackers are of a different race and shouted racial epithets, these facts are relevant, too.

The refusal to reveal such facts makes a mockery of journalism. And if we won’t report that rioters are Muslims, why state that they’re youths? If reporting the race of an assailant is out of bounds, why disclose that he's male? Why expose any groups to possible ridicule? Maybe a rape should be reported thus: “Sentient biped accuses other sentient biped of undocumented-lover status.”

Perhaps the worst violence here is the kind that hate-crime laws do to the principle of equality before the law. Because besides being an effort at thought control, they’re never applied equally. They’re not about eliminating hate, but are just vehicles through which the Left can express its hate through law. With hate-crime legislation, leftists now have the latitude to discriminate legally as they cherry-pick sentient bipeds for harsher punishment based on sexual inclination, race, creed, or color.

"This is exactly what happened after the horrible dragging death of black victim James Byrd by three white men in 1998; it was headline news for months and led to the creation of a Texas hate-crime law."
It's funny you should mention this. I pulled my two 9th graders out of East High (this young man's school) on 02/17 of this year because the advanced class English teacher (who is African-American) showed an explicit film about lynchings, then in front of the class attacked my daughters, (who are white) telling them that "everybody from Texas is ignorant rednecks" and that they were "responsible for Jasper because [their] skin is white." We moved to KCMO from Texas, where they were born, so the girls took that very personally. They were confused, though, how Ms. M___ knew about our dog Jasper and why she blamed them that he died when he got hit by that car. I had to explain the Jasper, TX atrocity to them. I also explained to them that people with dark skin are just like people with light skin. Sometimes they perpetuate hateful things because that's what they learned from their parents. I don't really understand it, though. We worked so hard as a nation to put an end to Jim Crow laws, and "back of the bus" laws, and all the other hateful trappings of a shameful past, yet here we are today, with the same nonsense being spewed by people who should frankly know better. Today's incident is common here, in various forms, and it is rarely, if at all, commented on by the media.

Judge orders Christians to Apologize to Atheists


Judge orders apology from 2 Texas educators

March 21, 2012 | Associated Press
foxnews.com


A judge in San Antonio has ordered two educators to apologize to an agnostic family in a lingering school prayer dispute.

Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery on Monday orderedMedina Valley Independent School District Superintendent James Stansberry and band director Keith Riley to apologize. The judge declined to hold them in contempt.

The San Antonio Express-News reports the men allegedly made public comments critical of the family of ex-student Corwyn Schultz after a February settlement. The family had sued but failed to stop prayers at last June's graduation ceremony.

The district agreed school employees would not pray with students or elicit prayer in class, plus not disparage the Schultz family.

The district declined comment about Monday's order, which requires the Schultz family to accept the apologies.

“Palin-Power”: Bristol’s Post Melts Down Server at Patheos, Over 100,000 Shares, Over 1,700 comments,

Reported on by MSM and Hollywood …
March, 21, 2012 — nicedeb
patheos.com

Via Conservatives 4 Palin, NRO’s David French, who is married to the editor of Patheos, describes the server melt-down there, yesterday.

Nancy tweeted it to her few hundred followers (she and I have a rather pathetic contest for twitter followers; right now I’m barely in the lead with a whopping 776), and Bristol facebooked it. Within hours, it had been shared 8,000 times. Already it was taking off.

Then Sarah Palin tweeted.

Patheos’s server promptly melted down. One of the most-trafficked religious sites on the web, its server still spontaneously combusted. A small mushroom cloud was spotted over the server farm. Eleven additional servers had to be brought online to handle the traffic flow, and by the end of the day, 8,000 shares had turned into more than 85,000 (update: 100,000), and the story of Bristol’s challenge to the president had been reported not just in the political and mainstream media but also in the Hollywood media as well. Thousands of tweets, and tens of thousands more Facebook shares from Fox to the Huffington Post to the Hollywood Reporter took the post well beyond the familiar and comfortable enclaves of the conservative blogosphere.

That, in essence, is Palin power. No other name in the conservative movement can instantly break through the wall of separation between conservative punditry and popular culture. Bristol powerfully and concisely told the truth — and reached an audience so large it resides only in most pundits’ wildest dreams.

Bristol Palin’s well thought out and well written post at Patheos struck a chord with people because they’re disgusted with the gross double standards they see in public discourse. As Bristol says in her latest blog post, Responding to the Viral Sensation, Loving my Brother:

The very people who call out for “civility” in our conversations ignore the hatred that spills out of their friends, allies, and million-dollar donors.

She gets it.

Of course she does. She’s a Palin, and has thus seen her family jerked around the center of an institutional left-fueled sh*t-storm on too many occasions to count.

Incidentally, “Loving My Brother” is part of her latest headline as a response to the many vicious attacks on Trig that have been seen in the comment section of her viral post.

You can see that Bill Maher is not some lone comedian with a unique perspective on us. Rather, he taps into something evil and dark that resides in the hearts of many people who hate our family. Even after so many years, I’m still a little surprised when people make fun of my little brother. They, however, can’t silence me or my mom. In fact, they motivate us to keep speaking. Evil can’t win!

Responding to the “You’re comparing apples to oranges” argument, (” a comedian pretty much can say what they want. Limbaugh actually represents the Republican Party”), Palin says:

Bill Maher is much more than a comedian. He’s a big-time political player who hides behind the “comedian” label whenever he gets criticized. His guest list represents a huge chunk of the Washington establishment and sometimes even includes prominent Republicans. And as I said in my original post, he’s put himself straight in the middle of presidential politics by giving $1,000,000 to President Obama’s SuperPAC. Bill Maher isn’t just some guy behind a microphone in a seedy comedy club in the middle of nowhere. He’s a comedian and political commentator like Rush is an entertainer and political commentator. He’s a little bit less popular, but his professional failure compared to Rush doesn’t make him any less accountable for his vile speech.

See how neatly she stuck the shiv in Maher’s ribs, there, in ‘Cuda -like fashion? Clearly, Bristol Palin is more than just a pretty face.

A writer for Yahoo News, L. Vincent Poupard, applauded Palin for setting up the perfect “Catch 22? for the President.

Due to Palin’s blog, the ball is in President Obama’s court. If he calls her, it will appear to be due to the pressure by the right to treat her the same way he treated Fluke. The former vice-presidential candidate’s daughter made a statement in her blog about the president being the president of all Americans and not just Democrats.

If the president does not call her, it will solidify the thought he let Maher get away with the comments made due to the donation and the comedian’s political leanings. It will show a double standard of how it is OK for a public figure to say anything he or she wants as long as he or she is a liberal and makes contributions toward the Democrat reelection funds.

We might see the buddings of a political career in the young Palin. She was able to send a challenge and set a trap at the same time for President Obama. While many politicians try to do this on a daily basis, few can be as successful as the young reality star could be. Bristol wins no matter what happens.

On the flip side, Obama loses no matter what happens.

Well played, Miss Palin.

I for one, look forward to many more blog-posts from the budding star.

    There's no problem about Mitt Romney taking conservative positions during the primary that may upset the liberal media; come this fall, he can erase them and start all over again.

    That's the word from Eric Fehrnstrom, a senior campaign aide to Romney, who told CNN Wednesday that after his candidate's big win in Illinois Tuesday he can still change course.

    “Everything changes,” Fehrnstrom told CNN. “It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.”

    Fehrnstrom's comments, which tried to explain how former Massachusetts Gov. Romney could re-invent himself after a right-leaning campaign against Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, went viral across the web Wednesday.

    With the disclosure, conservatives found confirming evidence that their GOP frontrunner really doesn't believe those Reaganite, "severely conservative" positions he has been articulating in recent months.

    The Fehrstrom remark may have been dismissed if Romney didn't have such a long track record of flip-flopping on major issues like abortion, tax cuts, a national health mandate and other issues.

    Senior Romney aides, meanwhile, have offered policy plans that directly contradict their candidate's stated position, suggesting that a Romney administration may raise tax increases for high-income earners and that key parts of Obamacare will be kept in place.

    Romney quickly told a press gathering that he is not an Etch-A-Sketch toy, and promised to run and govern as a conservative.

    But his primary opponents aren't buying the denial.

    "We all knew Mitt Romney didn’t have any core convictions, but we appreciate his staff going on national television to affirm that point for anyone who had any doubts,” the Santorum campaign said in a statement.

    Gingrich sent out a message on Twitter: “Etch-A-Sketch is a great toy but a losing strategy. We need a nominee with bold conservative solutions.”

      Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush made his long-awaited endorsement in the GOP presidential race on Wednesday, putting his name behind Mitt Romney’s campaign.

      Bush, who many have touted as a possible compromise candidate if Romney fails to attract enough delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot, made it clear in his statement that the time has now come for all Republicans to stand squarely behind the former Massachusetts governor’s candidacy.

      He gave his endorsement within hours of the Illinois primary, where Romney crushed his nearest challenger, former Sen. Rick Santorum, by 12 percentage points.

      “Congratulations to Governor Mitt Romney on his win last night and to all the candidates for a hard fought, thoughtful debate and primary season,” said Bush in a statement, pointing out that it is time for party unity after 34 contests.

      “Now is the time for Republicans to unite behind Governor Romney and take our message of fiscal conservatism and job creation to all voters this fall,” Bush said.

      “We face huge challenges, and we need a leader who understands the economy, recognizes more government regulation is not the answer, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism and works to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed.”

      The candidates had courted Bush, the son and brother of a former president, hoping for his endorsement — especially because of his popularity in the key swing state of Florida and the clout he carries among Hispanics, who are seen as a crucial voting bloc.

      But he had held out. Many had attributed that to the thought that he still could become a key player at the Tampa convention in August. However, he maintained all along that he was not interested in the nomination this time round.

      Just last month, when asked about the Republican race, Andy Card, President George W. Bush’s chief of staff, told interviewer Charlie Rose, “I have the perfect candidate — Jeb Bush. But he’s not running.”

      Bush’s endorsement of Romney was not a huge surprise, especially as his delegate lead over Santorum continues to grow. Romney is now close to having half of the 1,144 delegates he needs and is 300 ahead of Santorum. Both of his parents, former President George H.W. Bush and first lady Barbara Bush already had endorsed Romney.

      And last month in a speech in Dallas, Jeb Bush — the second of the Bushes’ five surviving children — complained that all the candidates had to push to the right to win the GOP nomination but in so doing were alienating independents and moderate Republicans whose votes they will need if they are to defeat Obama in November.

      “It’s important for the candidates to recognize they have to appeal to primary voters, and not turn off independent voters that will be part of a winning coalition,” he said.

      The United States is facing a second recession because of soaring gas prices under the Obama administration's inept energy policies, one of the House's leading experts on energy policy tells Newsmax.

      And Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, the influential chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, says that President Barack Obama likely will look back on soaring prices at the pumps as the reason the American people sent him packing after one term.

      “If President Obama is not re-elected I think he will look back at this issue as the defining issue as to whether or not he actually made it,” said Upton in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.
