Posted on 02/20/2014 2:21:44 AM PST by IChing
Rabid race-agitator Soledad OBrien seems to have stayed on at CNN after all, close-cropping her locks and disguising herself as weekend anchor Don Lemon.
Lemon, his obnoxious guest Marc Lamont Hill, and a gaggle of other slobbering, bug-eyed maniacs made a mockery of the TV news reporting profession this past Saturday, shrieking and jabbering hysterically about yet another racially charged, high-profile Florida murder case as its outcome was being deliberated and finally announced.
While it became increasingly apparent that the jury in the Michael Dunn case was deadlocked over the murder charge against him, an especially vitriolic Lemon and his crack squad of hired, race-grievance hate mongers made it clear that they think juries should ignore the law, and instead just vindictively railroad & convict, on any given charge, all white (or sufficiently non-black) men involved in incidents wherein a young black male winds up deadregardless of whether the facts, evidence, and charges themselves warrant such verdicts.
Dunn, found guilty on 4 of the 5 charges against him, will be in jail for the rest of his life. But thats not nearly enough for the vituperative racists employed at the likes of CNN and MSNBC. Theyre collectively caterwauling for their version of justice because they say it wasnt done in the case of Dunn, a white man, who shot and killed Jordan Davis, a black teenager, in a confrontation in the parking lot of a convenience store in Jacksonville, Florida, over a year ago.
The Left wants to aggressively dovetail the controversy around the Dunn case into a double-whammy freak show follow-up to last years George Zimmerman extravaganza, and theyre milking it for as much malicious mileage as they can.
Dunns defense was that he retrieved his pistol from his car and fired out of fear for his life, claiming that Davis threatened him with what looked like a shotgun while hurling abusive language at him when Dunn complained about the loud rap thug music emanating from the other vehicle.
The jury was hung on the first-degree murder charge against Dunn, but they unanimously convicted him on three counts of attempted second-degree murder (based on the presence of three others who escaped harm, who were in the vehicle with Davis) and on one count of shooting a firearm at a vehicle.
Lemon and his guests were outraged. Never mind that Dunn will never see the outside of a prison again; the travesty, for them, is that the jury could not agree that Dunns actions rose to the level of premeditated, first-degree murder, or near enough to it for a lesser second-degree or manslaughter conviction.
Since the Don Lemons, Al Sharptons, and Jane Velez-Mitchells of this world were so crestfallen and furious about George Zimmerman being acquitted, they had really hoped and believed theyd get to royally lynch and pin the tail on the honky this time! To them, this case turned out to be yet another Florida court failing to deliver justice upon another white guy who wrongfully killed another black boy. Florida! Such an evil, racist state, what with that evil, racist stand-your-ground law and all, helping whitey get off! Never you mind that blacks are the ones who have benefited from the stand-your-ground defense disproportionately in the states which have it.
During Saturdays report, Lemon was particularly shrill and unprofessional, repeatedly yelling about how absolutely ridiculous!! (he used that phrase over and over again) it was in the first place that Dunn or anyone would even try to persuade another party to turn down their loud music at a gas station. The extremely upset Lemon screeched, You go over, you start the altercation, and then you cant deal with it and then you decide to shoot someone, and all of a sudden its someone elses fault that youre on trial for murder? Its absolutely ridiculous!!(the wild-eyed Lemon is thumping his hands on the table and gesticulating desperately)
Lemon loudly, frantically bellowed again and again that there should be a mind your own business law, and wailed multiple times about how there is a gas station on every corner in Florida, and that anyone who has a problem with loud, violent rap music at one location should just flee (you just move your buttyour you-know-what!!) to another, instead of asking for those playing the music to stop disturbing the peace. Lemon: I know people are saying Don Lemon is pissed on Twitter. Yes, I am pissed! I am absolutely pissed!
Going even further with the race-baiting, the CNN talking heads used the occasion of the prime-time weekend news program to repeatedly, abrasively bemoan some supposedly racially oppressive modern America where young black men are constantly harassed and victimized by evil, hateful white men, routinely detained, imprisoned, and even killed on the streets by them for no reason, without the white men having to face any penalty, blah blah blah blah blah of course, never in the slightest was the truth mentioned: That young black males are only about 3% of the overall U.S. population, yet by themselves commit over 50% of the violent crime and murder. Nowhere was it pointed out that black males are the ones who murder whites at an extremely disproportionate rate, compared to the other way around. Theyre just not interested in reporting the facts, at all.
Lets face it, the jury mostly did the right thing. Dunns highly dubious actions after the event gave the prosecution plenty to work with, but the state failed to prove premeditated first-degree murder. Beyond that, given that the jury had the option of convicting on lesser charges, they failed to find sufficiently clear evidence for those either, further enraging people like Don Lemon.
Dunns story was nowhere near water-tight, but the defense nonetheless had a minimally workable angle, a card to play: For four full days after the incident, police failed to even search for the gun Dunn claimed he saw, at least anywhere other than the vehicle in which Dunn rode. Dunns defense team said the gun could have been gotten rid of, hidden just about anywhere near the scene, by Davis friends immediately after the incident, and disposed of before the police searched nearby dumpsters, bushes, and so on. Zimmerman defense attorney Mark OMara points out that, curiously not raised by the defense, was the fact that a camera tripod (which one would think could have easily been brandished in the manner of an apparent firearm to scare someone) was found underneath the seat of the Dodge Durango occupied by Davis and his friends.
So, in the final analysis, the verdicts make sense, as does the hung jury on the most serious charge: There was sufficient doubt, to preclude unanimous agreement, about whether Dunn actually murdered/criminally caused the death of Davis, but his overall actions and pattern/volume of gunfire left jurors with the distinct conclusion that they amounted to attempted second-degree murder of the others in the vehicle.
States attorney Angela Corey (yes, the same Cheshire-cat see-you-next-Tuesday who orchestrated the attempted railroading of George Zimmerman) says she intends to retry Dunn on the first-degree charge.
As for why Corey went for first-degree murder in the first place, some experts speculate that it was specifically so that a twelve person jury would be impaneled; in Florida, juries of only six people (as in the Zimmerman trial) serve on cases where the charge is lower than a capital offense. Why would Corey so badly want a jury of 12 instead of a jury of 6? The reason, of course, again relates back to racial dynamics in our legal system: A higher number of jurors increases the likelihood that some of the jurors would be black, increasing chances of nailing the honky. Some experts also exclaim that everything having to do with our criminal justice system winds up being about race.
Its a shame about Don Lemons on-air meltdown over this case. Id been having hopes for him becoming a decent journalist in the months leading up to this episode because he had seemed to begin to transcend the usual full-time black victimhood-grievance; in one very bold segment a couple of months ago, he had actually called out blacks to put a stop to the gangsta-thug culture and so forth. Now he has plainly done a 180-degree full-speed reversal.
Now, those who call thug rap music what it actually isthug musicface the latest, freshest, absurd accusations of racism and bigotry, and so on, from the race-hustlers. Likewise when referring to young blacks who dress, speak, and act overtly thuggishcall them thugs, and youre targeted for the new reverse McCarthyism. Of course.
Kudos to Gregg Jarrett of FOX News, by the way, for his public reaction to Don Lemons extremely biased debacle.
Jarrett was so appalled by Lemons horrible lack of journalistic integrity throughout the report in question on Saturday that he basically went to war with Lemon on Twitter, in what he says is the first instance in his entire career where hes publicly criticized another news anchor. Jarrett, an experienced attorney himself as well as a news man, had choice words for Lemons juvenile and unprofessional on-air prolonged outbursts. Jarrett accurately said that Lemon wanted to act as judge, jury, and executioner of Michael Dunn, despite not having been privy to all the actual trial evidence, nor having any legal training or knowledge. Jarrett called Lemon a pompous, pretentious jerk and the Al Sharpton of CNN, who could use a measure of maturity.
Characteristically, Lemon replied in a Tweet telling Jarrett to mind your business, old man. On a later CNN segment, Lemon doubled down, saying that old white guys have an old mentality, which stereotypes and fears young black men. Lemon proceeded to rant wildly, at length, about old white guys in the media trying to claw their way back from obscurity by attacking other people while the other CNN panelists nodded enthusiastically, flared their nostrils, bugged-out their eyes, and egged him on with even more anti-white rhetoric.
This is what the news authority has become. A mockery.
It is BLACK KU KLUX KLAN RACISM, plain and simple...the Black KKK wants to take away white folks rights to self defense.
Scary is that we have some on here who thought Dunn was guilty right from the beginning
Remember the D party is the party of cousin marriage in Minnesota for our wonderful guests the Somali warlords, ain’t diversity grand.
Some facts for the “Kwanza Klux Klan” over at DNCNN
Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder,and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.
Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against
a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes
against whites than vice versa.
And yes, it is young black males committing these crimes. About 5% or less than the population, but they are committing over 50% of violent crimes and murder, yet the blacks on television are acting like they are little angels being picked on by whitey and being lynched.
Yet if whitey defends himself from these feral creatures, he finds himself in jail, in court and possibly in prison because he chose not to become a victim of their “Knockout Game” or whatever life-threatening hijinks they are up to.
Remember, dead perpetrators can’t testify.
And half of firearm homicides are caused by black males, so what do liberals law-makers want to do? Pass more laws that infringe upon our 2nd Amendment rights instead of reeling in the pavement apes that are committing half of the firearm murders. 5% of a certain demographic are engaging in 50% of firearm murders and these liberals want to chisel away at the 2nd Amendment until we have bullits that cost $5.00 each and guns that can only shoot one bullit at a time.
Meanwhile, the pavement apes will just hack each other to death with machetes like they did in Rwanda, killing over 400,000 people.
Liberals are neverendingly stupid.
Yeah, white on black crime is a real problem in the US, but the Knockout Game and black on white crime is “just a myth”
bullits = bullitts.
You and I both know we're living in a bizarro world controlled by white liberals and black racists who are trying to convince dubious Americans that the crime rates are the reverse of what they actually are. What all the denial of black crime rates will end up doing is to start a race war. Few whites, even most Dems, fall for the "racist whites gunning down innocent blacks" con that libs have foisted on the country for the past fifty years. A bloody day of reckoning will come soon I fear.
It was nice to hear from 1 of the 9 who voted guilty on that one count. It would be nice to hear from 1 of the 3 who voted for acquittal on that count. Just what exactly was the deadlock about??
Jordan Davis’s parents don’t seem to be upset by the mistrial. His mother who said that they have been in touch with the TrayvonMartins’ told ABC that justice will be served for her son when the law [SYG] is changed.
So then the trial was irrelevant??? She told us in so many words what this whole thing is about for her and it’s not convicting the man who shot her son but going after a law that had nothing to do with her son’s death.
Somehow I feel that she is taking delight in the mistrial, thus allowing her to claim victimhood and political prisoner status .
What a bunch of twisted b.s. No one will explain to her that blacks have been protected from wrongful prosecution the most where SYG defense has been applied.
