Teen Set on Fire in Racial Attack; Media Silent
the new american.com ^ | Thursday, 01 March 2012

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 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.

The “reverend” Jesse Jackson and “reverend” Al Sharpton couldn’t care less - when the victim of a hate crime is white.

They won’t zoom in on any case like that. They’re all about racial division and opportunism.

Time for reverse censorship laws. The media needs to be forced to cover such stories.

My first reaction is to call the media racist, but that wouldn't be entirely correct.

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.

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!

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.

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...

Afotey said:

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.

Every.

Single.

Day.

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.

Megyn Kelly LOL, what an elitist left wing kook she turned out to be since she came back after having her baby and having her show.

Is that airhead still pushing her cross dressing pro homosexual crap,still bringing on her pal Sally Kohn and the other left wing idiots and is she also still talking about her nana, her personal life like her house in VA is under water bal bla bla yada yada ?

I gave up on her last year after she got the Soros media matters homosexual activist stooge Sally khon the job at FOX and I’ve talked to quite a few off here who have given up watching her too.

Fox has turned left but WOW has she turned out to be another left wing ,elitist,snotty nosed, airhead

half the white population including conservatives just shut up and don’t see what the problem is along with white guilt put into them by their teachers at school or when they were at school .
A quarter sit on their butts and love what they see and thinks whites deserve it.
The other quarter speak out, mention this to family , friends, neighbors but are dismissed because of the other 3 quarters.

If anything is to change in this country then the MSM has to be changed first, they truly are the real enemy of the country because they control the message to the idiots who come home, put the TV on for the local news and think they are being told the truth.

In Obamaland, this is what's happening. As Rush stated this morning, the so called "silent majority" is just waiting for the spark that will ignite an all out political upheaval against the most vicious, evil, anti-Constitution, and most divisive President in the history of this Republic! When government continues to remove peoples' rights and they find themselves backed up against the wall, they have little to lose and will strike back with a vengeance!

I have always said that when a low-life uses a gun to shoot and either mame or kill someone, the media should be forced to report, in the article, as to whether or not the perpetrator was a member of the NRA. Can you imagine the media having to report that these murders are being committed by other than NRA members. That would get their collective panties in a bunch, would it not?

The doctrines of Critical Race Theory like the doctrines of the Democrats’ KKK is not without consequence. Whites should not sit for it. It’s deathly serious.

I seem to recall reading something about an incident with this child an a teacher in school over answering a question during a black history month lesson.

I’d appreciate anyone’s help in finding that.

TIA
