African-American Lynch Mob

African-American Lynch Mob

David Horowitz

Is anybody else out there as sick and tired as I am of lynch mob racists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (vide: Tawana Brawley, the Duke Lacrosse kids) who don the mantel of the “civil rights” movement to indict non-blacks in advance of the facts, and incite racial rage against them? Yet that is exactly what they – and scores of black leaders — are doing to an Hispanic individual named George Zimmerman. Along with a cast of thousands, they are holding him guilty of racism before the fact, justifying a hatred, as inflammatory as the hatred once spewed by southern crackers against blacks.

There is no evidence whatsoever that race was a defining factor in the tragic death of Trayvon Martin. Notwithstanding the absence of evidence, this unhappy incident is now the occasion for school shut-downs, mass marches and public death threats by enraged African Americans, displaying behaviors reminiscent of the lynch mobs that were once a scourge of their parents’ generation in a now rejected past.

The facts surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin have not been investigated and are still uncertain. But the lynch mob has delivered its verdict: George Zimmerman is guilty of a race crime; Trayvon Martin was killed because he was black. “Trayvon is the Emmett Till of our generation,” said one mob leader, referring to the 12-year-old who was murdered by white racists in 1955 for whistling at a white woman.

There no verifiable evidence for this fact-challenged, inflammatory, claim. According to the lone eyewitness to come forward, it was Martin who attacked Zimmerman and was on top of him and beating him to a pulp when the fatal shot was fired. The fact that Zimmerman’s face was bloody when the police arrived, is an apparent corroboration of this version of the event. Is this what happened? We don’t know. But it is a claim that should get tested in a court of law. Unfortunately to a lynch mob the evidence is irrelevant, the conclusion foregone.

If the demonstrators were merely calling for an investigation that would be proper. But the cries for retribution, and the accusations of racism, which dominate the public demonstrations are not. And that goes for the statement of the President as well. Not willing to be separated from his racial constituency, even when they are behaving badly, Obama has lent his prestige to the insinuation that the crime was inspired by the victim’s race. Otherwise there would be no reason to mention the fact that “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon”? Everyone who has a son should be concerned by the loss of this life. By making it racial, the president is establishing guilt without evidence, and indicting non-black America as well.

The display of racial outrage over this case is a national disgrace. It is a throwback to the past and a shameful repudiation of the values the civil rights movement once stood for but apparently does no longer.

About David Horowitz:

David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine,Ramparts. He is the author, with Peter Collier, of three best selling dynastic biographies: The Rockefellers: An American Dynasty (1976); The Kennedys: An American Dream (1984); and The Fords: An American Epic (1987). Looking back in anger at their days in the New Left, he and Collier wrote Destructive Generation (1989), a chronicle of their second thoughts about the 60s that has been compared to Whittaker Chambers’ Witness and other classic works documenting a break from totalitarianism. Horowitz examined this subject more closely in Radical Son (1996), a memoir tracing his odyssey from “red-diaper baby” to conservative activist that George Gilder described as “the first great autobiography of his generation.”

One of the many good things about Free Republic is sooner or later someone will have your opinion expressed, and usually in a better form.
Horowitz has my opinion on this Trayvon Martin shooting death expressed rather nicely. - tom

I, for one, am becoming sick of the double standard. Take this for instance: “A 13-year-old boy who police say was doused with gasoline and lit on fire last week while walking home from school is recovering from first-degree burns to his face and head. The boy was just two blocks from his home in Kansas City Tuesday when two teenagers began to follow him and then attacked him, his mother, Melissa Coon, said. Police have described the suspects as black 16-year-olds, while the victim is white. “We were told it’s a hate crime,” Coon told KTLA.” From Free Republic article: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2862315/posts I must have missed the outrage expressed over this act by Sharpton, Jackson, Obama and most of the MSM. Their hypocrisy is appalling.

“Slut” episode - designed to energize women

Trayvon “murder” - designed to energize blacks and re-energize, “white guilt”

Just more evidence that The Left KNOWS how iffy it’s own base is about their boy and that they’ve abandoned working whites.

THIS IS 2012 ELECTION PREP.

It is not only a disgrace, it is a chilling, frightful, and demonic threat to our nation. The Black Panthers can put out an Alive or Dead poster and walk free with impunity? They can tweet the guy’s home address with impunity? There is no safety for non-blacks in this Administration? in the United States. This is very very bad.

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just last week?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
(She was most likely gang raped numerous times...but we will never know for sure)

Both the husband and wife were weak, having just gotten over the flu.

.

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage?

Where is the outrage?

There is just something about major elections that brings out racism in spades!

Dems play the race card to gin up the black anger vote. They do it every four years. And their shills in the MSM breathlessly cover it - every time.

FACT:93% of black murders are committed by black men. Murder is the most common way for young black men to die. The MSM, democrats, and poverty pimps to not care about the 93% of young black men murdered BECAUSE it doesn't further their agenda.

Dems do the 'hysteria over birth control' every four years too...

Without hate and fear, dems wouldn't have a trick in their bag. None of their ideas have worked - 40 years of proof showcases that fact.

Follow the link to see how the MSM helps them.. it's a hoot.

Horowitz always calls it right. An amazing man. It's depressing to me that the moment the hateful Al Sharpton entered this fracas, I lost all sympathy for the victim and his family. I don't think I'm the only one - just being honest about how much I loathe race baiters and how much they screw up the discourse. For shame!

25 years ago I had a belly full of minorities crying and alleging every wrong in their life was due to skin color.

It's now to the point, where the U.S. government kisses their butts so much, has emboldened them so much, (including Mexican illegals, legal Hispanics and blacks) they can literally murder someone who says something which they don't happen to like. Many times they'll murder someone, and just make up something like, "He said the word nigger", implying this would somehow give them the right to shoot, or beat someone to death.

It's insane and all an excuse to get what they want, or to do any damn thing they want. Like riot, murder, sue people/employers etc.

He sais he regrets voting for “that over-spending ass#### Obama.” And he won’t do so again.

Of course this leads to the question of whether whites will ever stand up as whites as say enough?

Otherwise these very dangerous Marxist race charades will go on unabated and in fact get worse.

Gee, I dunno, this may not set well with the hispanic vote, especially since they have referred to Zimmerman as white. Clearly he has a white name, and is of mixed race, but they can’t paint him white, just look at his face. I see 100% espanol. It may coalesce the black vote but what might it do to the hispanic vote; cut it by 25% and Obama looses in a landslide... dumb to the power of ten...

Ya see it over and over and over...Some white guy or someone gets murdered or nearly beat to death, and many times the suspect/suspects will say, "Ya but he used the n word or racial slur".

This is all just an excuse to get away with murder or minimize punishment, and the stinking government plays right along with this insanity.

This faux outrage over Martin can be boiled down to a very simple comparison.

Every day around the world, Muslims murder other Muslims by the dozens, if not hundreds, but no outrage from other Muslims. Muslims murder non Muslims and are cheered on by other Muslims. The only outrage expressed by Muslims of all stripes, is when a non Muslim kills a Muslim, then Muslims as a whole go berserker.

Now, compare that to blacks as a whole.

In addition to promoting black racist solidarity, Obama is also intent on provoking statements of white supremacy to “justify” the hate whitey division of our society. He is extremely successful on all counts.

To me it’s not a big uissue but obama and his media are beating the war drums.

Yet, we have these horrible black on white crimes and the drones out here see nothing, feel nothing. This is how people have been taught to react.

Always the Black man as the victim never the perpetrator.

Obama is exactly as white as Zimmerman, not that race should matter at all, but it’s telling that the media constantly refer to Obama as the first “black president” and Zimmerman as a “white hispanic”.

I agree, Jaz, but you're almost being too kind.

Obama wants division. Not only does it aid his true agenda of undermining and diminishing America, it distracts at least temporarily from his actual record of destruction.

I imagine he figures that if he can sustain fomented outrage through the summer and into the fall, he may just win re-election. It's beyond pathetic, it's somewhere between delusional and demented.
