Skip to comments.ABC and The Nation Of Islam Support Cold Blooded Killer Tookie (Debbie Schlussel Alert)
Posted on 12/12/2005 11:36:05 AM PST by goldstategop
We've been writing about the cadre of mindless celebs that are supporting clemency for convicted murderer of four (and probably many more) and extreme prison make-over supermodel, Crips co-founder Stanley "Tookie" Williams. He is set to die at midnight, tonight, unless Arnold Schwarzenegger commutes his death sentence.
Now, we're sickened to note the support for Tookie by two additional parties, ABC (yes, the broadcast network) and the Muslim hate group, Nation of Islam.
ABC & Nation of Islam Support Murderer Stanley "Tookie" Williams ABC & Tookie
First there's the un-American Broadcasting Company. For the past few days, as celeb shrieking for Tookie has reached a fever pitch, ABC has started running extended ads for a new show, "In Justice." Starring "Twin Peaks" has-been Kyle MacLachlan, the show is about the "Justice Project," which tries to get people falsely accused of crimes out of prison. But the promo ABC is running is not just about any accused criminal. It's about an innocent Black man on death row sentenced to death for murders he didn't commit, and about the eleventh hour attempts by attorneys to get his sentence commuted.
Sound familiar? Yup, it's the same line being towed by Team Tookie. So, is it just a coincidence that this promo--about an innocent Black man on death row--has been running repeatedly on ABC in the last few days? If you believe that, I have a broadcast network property to sell you (one that hasn't already sold out).
Nation of Islam & Tookie
Then there's the Nation of Islam. Rumors have run rampant that Tookie Williams has converted to Islam in prison, which would be no surprise. Other well-known Black prisoners have done the same (Mike Tyson, Tawanna Brawley, etc.).
But what's telling is that the Nation of Islam--whose leader Louis Farrakhan consistently utters the phony "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" and "take responsibility for your immoral actions" claptrap--is calling for the commuting of Tookie's death sentence. That gives us yet another reason why we are for the carrying out of the well-deserved sentence.
ABC and the Nation of Islam--You can learn a lot about a person by the company he keeps.
Question: If Scott Peterson writes some children's books, will the cacophony of celeb calls for clemency (plus ABC and NOI) come his way? Don't bet on it.
(Denny Crane: "I Don't Want To Socialize With A Pinko Liberal Democrat Commie.Say What You Like About Republicans. We Stick To Our Convictions. Even When We Know We're Dead Wrong.")
Tawana was never a prisoner.
Holy smoke, it's Arnold with an afro!
agreed. just as Capital Punishment is not about revenge, it's about retribution and that's just fine.
---Other TV stations should be showing the pictures of the victims non stop until this is over and give them the recognition THEY deserve instead of letting ABC and Louis Farrakhan, his minions and Hollywood nut jobs have air/press time to praise this murderer.
For me, it's partly the practical matter of preventing the killer from ever doing it again.
It's also about the principle that as with any other theft, if you deliberately and without just cause take someone else's life, you forfeit the right to keep your own.
I don't believe in it's claimed deterent effect(unless you mean deterring the individial from repeating their crimes
once they escape or are released)
I don't know of any executed murderers who were recidivist
That's exactly what I mean. I don't know how it could be interpreted any other way.
I don't know of any executed murderers who were recidivist murderers.
After all, it's kind of hard to kill again if you're dead yourself. It's the ones who HAVEN'T been executed and get out on the streets and kill again that are the problem. And there are plenty of those. The dead ones tend to behave like gentlemen.
Both of which are always "jolly on the spot" to support the poor destitute souls who have shown to be worthy of acceptance in the evolution of humanity.
