Skip to comments.Teen Set on Fire in Racial Attack; Media Silent
Posted on 03/21/2012 11:07:54 AM PDT by NoLibZone
This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy. So spewed the attackers of Melissa Coons 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 Im investigating whether the media is biased and if hate-crime law is applied equally. Ill 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 Childrens 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, isnt translating into national media coverage or honest coverage anywhere.

Story not picked up by any of the Soros media.
Gosh, I'm really going to have to think about the 'hate crime' aspect of this for awhile.. Hmmmm.. I just don't knowwwwww../sarc
Time for reverse censorship laws. The media needs to be forced to cover such stories.
The MSM is a political entity that weeds through stories and reports those that promote its ideological goals. Those that do not, like this one, are minimized or simply ignored.
Of course in the process of promoting their political aims they are fomenting virulent hatred and racism, but the collateral damage caused by that does not matter to them in the least - the ends justifies the means doncha know.
Sorry kid, you gotta break a few eggs if you want to make an omelette.
“They that sow the wind, ...”
Same reason the story from Oklahoma about the elderly couple being attacked and robbed in their own home is not getting MSM coverage (but picked up by UK media). The dear woman (about 85 years old) died; the husband, who is about 90 years old, is in the hospital. They’d been married 65 years! Such animals running amuck anymore! What in the world is wrong with people! Such ugly, awful, disgusting, hateful behavior!
What is the story?
The communist utopian goal at the end of all the misery justifies ANY means necessary to achieve it.
Yes, they DO believe this.
“The media needs to be forced to cover such stories.”
Nope. You can’t do it like that.
What Murdoch discovered, after Rush basically showed the way for 10 years, was that conservatives were an UNSERVED market for news in the US.
Rush notwithstanding, conservative newsers in the US is still an UNDERSERVED market. We have Fox - that’s it - and lately that’s pretty weak magic right there. Axelrod was on with Brett Baer last night bumbling and stumbling.
Breitbart found this market too. If that’s your passion, news for conservatives, and you have a little capital, you can make a boatload of money even at this late date.
I’d love to see what Drudge lost from backing Romney. Coulter too. I don’t get it. They wouldn’t have done it if there wasn’t a buck to be made in there somewhere. Maybe they’ve seen something we haven’t.
I don’t know.
I know the answer isn’t curtailing one of my freedoms in the pursuit of ‘equity in reporting’. That’s essentially the root of the ‘fairness doctrine’ which like all other Orwellian-named bills in Congress does the opposite of what the title suggests.
It’s not my people who got hurt, carry on, nothing to see and to our propaganda machine called the MSM, “don’t cover it”
“Such animals running amuck anymore!”
These kind of animals need to be put down.
And, you won’t see 5,000 loudmouth, ill-mannered white people chanting hate and flailing away with signs while the national media cameras froth at the mouth in an effort to further inflate and inflame their hatred. Until white people become as loud, mean, filthy and low-life as the Sharpton/Jackson entourage, whites will continue to be treated as soccer balls.
You should read the comments at the source. Some fool calling himself “Afotey” claims (after maligning white people for all their transgressions) in his initial post that it is “white guilt” to take him at his word that he was blaming white people...
Here’s his first post...
Sucks, Doesn’t It?
Terrible crime, for sure.
Pales in comparison to what Whites have done for millenia to people all over this planet, but still terrible nonetheless.
Oh, and that anger you’re feeling? Welcome to what Black people go through EVERY DAY in America.
Hopefully, you’ll now have a modicum of understanding when one of us (yeah, I’m Black) gets soooo pissed off about some egregious injustice carried out upon our backs.
Maybe one of the kids friends yelled to him by his last name and the feral’s got offended.
Yeah. We’d have to go to Burger King or Mickey Ds and jump up on the counter and throw feces around like monkeys while we chimp out.
