Sharpton, Jackson, Media Silent About Hate Crime in S.C.
New American ^ | 4-2-12 | Cort Kirkwood

Six black men assaulted a white man outside a restaurant in Seneca, S.C. on March 17 after insulting him with a racial remark. Such was the severity of the beating and obvious racial motive that local police have referred the case to federal officials. However, contrary to their usual reaction in such matters, the national media have yet to jump on the case, and civil rights leaders have said nothing about it. The leftist media’s and “civil rights” groups' silence on the subject stands in sharp contrast to their handling of the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida. The media have provided non-stop coverage of that case, often distorting the truth about it, and black leaders are demanding justice — perhaps without knowing all of the relevant facts — for the young man.

The Beating in Seneca

According to the Anderson Independent Mail, “police say they are referring the case to federal authorities to see if the men might be charged with hate crimes. Seneca Police Chief John Covington said the investigation indicated that race was a factor in the attack, so the case file would be transferred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”

The trouble for Terry Moore, a 32-year-old resident of Macon, N.C., began at about 12:50 a.m. outside the Applebee’s in Seneca.

“According to a statement given later by Moore,” the newspaper reported, “he had been fishing with friends in Oconee County all day on March 16 and the group capped the day by going to the Applebee’s.”

As the group left, Moore said, he went to the restroom while his companions went to their vehicles. When he went into the parking lot, Moore said, he was taunted by members of a group of 15 to 20 blacks who called him names such as “tree honky” and “cracker.”

One of the group hit him, Moore said, and as he reached for the alleged assailant, “everything went black.”

According to one of Moore’s companions, one of the assailants used a stun gun on Moore.

Moore said that he recalled being on the ground surrounded by feet and being beaten. According to one of Moore’s companions, one of those around Moore appeared to try to protect Moore's head from injury.

Police officers found Moore lying in the restaurant’s parking lot, the Mail reported.

Fox [News] Carolina offered more details about the police report describing the savage assault:

The report said that a woman told police that there were several black men attacking the 32-year-old white man, whose identity was redacted.

Upon exiting the restaurant he was jumped by a mob of individuals, and severely beaten about the head and torso,” said John Covington, the Seneca police chief. "The report was that racial slurs were being used toward the victim."

The man told police that he didn’t know what happened, didn’t remember coming to the restaurant and didn't know why he was attacked, according to the report.

Fox interviewed the victim, who has two black eyes and a swollen face. “He told us he was leaving the restaurant when a group of black men near the door called him a “tree honk,” the affiliate reported.

He said he had never heard that, but it “tickled” him, so he turned to ask them what it meant. He said that is when one man hit him, and another hit him in the head with a stun gun; he fell, and others began kicking him in the head.

Curiously, one witness stepped forward to claim Moore “was overhead inside the restaurant making racial comments about black people and using the “N” word,” Fox Carolina reported. Law enforcement officers could not confirm the report. “The person refused to give their name or a statement,” the police chief said. “Therefore, it remains uncorroborated.”

The six black men, who range in age from 18 to 25, are charged with assault and battery by mob.

All Quiet on the Media, Civil Rights Front

Searching for “Seneca,” “South Carolina” and “beating” did not return hits on the websites of the New York Times, the Washington Post, Fox News, CBS, NBC, or ABC.

MSNBC, the main site for NBC News on the Internet, carried yet another two stories about the Trayvon Martin case and ran teasers about it on their homepage. The network did find the time to edit the recording of Martin's alleged assailant’s phone call with police to make Zimmerman appear to be a racist. It has since launched an investigation into the matter to find out what went wrong.

But observers have noted that the media’s voice isn’t the only one that seems stilled in the quest for racial justice. Nothing on the South Carolina case has been heard from, for instance, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others, who bill themselves as “civil rights” leaders.

On the other hand, they have been pushing the Trayvon Martin story nonstop for weeks, while members of Congress are flatly accusing George Zimmerman, who shot Trayvon, of murder, a crime with which he has not been charged. An example is leftist Representative Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.): “I want America to see this sweet young boy who was hunted down like a dog, shot in the street, and his killer is still at large," she declared.

Other Cases the Media Ignored

The Seneca beating isn’t the first vicious crime with racial overtones that the media have ignored.

The media have also been silent about the racial attack against a boy in St. Louis last February. As The New American's Selwyn Duke reported, the attack against Allen Coon, 13, was undoubtedly racial. “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy,” Coon’s black assailants told him before dousing him with gasoline and setting him ablaze.

Another major crime the media ignored is the Wichita Massacre in Kansas. On Dec. 14, 2000, Jonathan and Reginald Carr wound up a week-long crime rampage by torturing five young whites and murdering four. The orgy of violence was so sadistic it nearly defies description. One victim escaped and helped bring the murderers to justice.

Yet another black-on-white murder case the major media left uncovered is the murderous frenzy known as The Knoxville Horror, in which a gang of black killers raped and murdered two whites in Knoxville, Tenn.

Covering Hoaxes

Aside from ignoring black-on-white hate crimes, the media also covers hate-crime hoaxes with remarkable intensity.

Three of the most famous shams involved what many observers have said the media should have known were preposterous charges. The first among them was that of Tawana Brawley, who claimed that white policemen in Dutchess County, New York, had raped her and covered her with feces. Al Sharpton, Brawley, and her attorneys even included the prosecutor in their list of perpetrators. The whole story turned out to be a fabrication, and the prosecutor won a defamation judgment against Sharpton, Brawley, and her attorneys.

A more recent example was that of the rape that did not occur during a lacrosse players’ party at Duke University. The case — which was given non-stop coverage by the media, particularly the New York Times — ended with the prosecutor being disbarred for prosecutorial misconduct.

Another hoax in which the mainstream media were involved with as the Jena Six case in Jena, La., which occasioned seven months of national news coverage, as the Weekly Standard noted, and mass protests in the small town. It was supposed to be, the Standard noted, quoting National Public Radio, the start of “America's next great civil rights movement.”

That cause célèbre fizzled when the facts proved that six black teenagers severely beat a white boy, and that its racial hatred component was on the side of the attackers.

Wikipedia notes: "Lady Justice, an allegorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems … has often been depicted wearing a blindfold."

Most Americans have traditionally believed that champions of justice should also be blind to the color of those accused of crimes, and render their verdicts accordingly.

They never report crimes that don't fit the narrative.

It’s not really a hate crime because they were “white-black” men.

This just illustrates what hypocrites those in the MSM really are. It also underscores their “selective outrage” meant to incite people for the purpose of furthering their political objectives.

Imagine if the media’s non-stop narrative was “golden retrievers are dangerous, pitbulls are harmless”

In time, the public would start having a very skewed look at dogs.

You don’t “get it”!

There can be no hate crime unless the victim is black and the perp is some other color!

Black on black doesn’t count either!

At some point, due to unequal treatment under the law, whites are going to take matters into their own hands if they perceive that the justice system is not as invested in solving racial crimes that are carried out by blacks on whites.

Eventually this is going to cause cities to burn.

And I am sure that the Feds will get right on this to make sure that there is never any publicity and no hate crime will be found... The Department of inJustice will drag out any investigation, silence and confuse witnesses and turn this into another payback mission by the Obama Administration.

You’ll never hear crimes minorities (including gays and women - unless they are conservative) commit. MSM can’t further their agenda if this happens.
Any statistics about per capita crime are shuffled to the back pages, or not even reported because of hyper-sensitivity to being labeled a racist/homophobe/mysogynist.
Our current crop of democrats will see that nothing will be done to change bad neighborhoods by breeding racism, class warfare and division with every statement they give.

If Jackson and Sharpton wanted to have any credibility at all they would be condemning all racial hatred.

But they are silent.

The total lack of consistency leads one to the inevitable conclusion that the “Reverend”s don’t know of or don’t believe in the 9th commandment since “...Bearing false witness...” is what keeps them in the one sided race hate occupation.

I don’t see the conservative media pointing out the obvious - the Leftists are setting the precedent that if Whitey uses a gun to defend himself against the growing flash mob marauders who have already killed and maimed, Whitey is gonna be lynched. These flash mob marauders will be the enforcers of the ‘new way.’ And redneck America better not even think about fighting back.

I have heard that a lot in the millitary are scared shiftless by the “Bubba Effect” caused by a cultural backlash to 30 years of Insane PC policies.

All it would take would be for some group of “Angry White Men” to take matters into their own hands and then the community to have an “I am Sparticus” moment and then all hell will break loose.

Of course if the Black Panthers do it (as they already did with Zimmerman) there is no one there to condem it on the National News Media, but should the inverse happen you bet there will be great pain.

The Dept of “Justice” didn’t clear this as a hate crime. Thus, no investigation.

Ah,yes. The white victim is ALWAYS guilty of using the N-word.

The attack on Allen Coon was in Kansas City, not St. Louis.

The victim of this attack is conveniently accused of using the "N-word" which makes the attack justified in the eyes of the media.

Same thing happened to Reginald Denny and the Michael Westerman. There is no way to prove a negative and all whites are constantly under suspicion of being racists. The author of Confederates in the Attic basically argued that Westerman's death was no loss to society.

Mass Shooting by Black Gunman in Miami –
Obama, Sharpton, Spike Lee & Farrakhan Nowhere to be Found

NORTH MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Fourteen blacks have been shot and two are dead in what may be one of the worst mass shootings in South Florida history and no one can seem to find Obama, Sharpton or Spike Lee to organize a rally, march on police stations, place bounties on the heads of the shooters or stage phony press conferences. This time it is fourteen innocent blacks shot, one a 5 year old girl! Two have died. Where’s the outrage?

The shooting took place around 9:30 p.m. outside the Funeraria Latina Emanuel funeral home at 14990 W. Dixie Highway Friday night.

One of the victims, a 43-year-old black man, died outside the funeral home, authorities said. The other, a 27-year-old black man, died at the hospital. Witnesses at the funeral home had said one of the two people killed was shot in the chest. Their names have not been released.

A 5-year-old girl, identified by her family as Mckayla Bazile, was shot in the leg and hospitalized at Jackson Memorial Hospital along with eleven other victims. The shooters were young black males.  So, for a moment, let me re-cap: A car full of  wicked men shot 14 black people for no reason whatsoever and Obama, Sharpton, Luis Farrakhan, Jessie Jackson, Spike Lee, and the New Black Panther leaders have not said a word! They have not organized rallies nor have they placed $10K or $1 million dollar bounties on the heads of the black cowardly shooters in that car.

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE? We know where it is. It doesn’t exist! None of these race-baiters give a damn about these 14 blacks that were fired upon for no reason, nor do they give one damn about Trayvon Martin!  Instead they are disgracefully using his death to advance their racial narratives. To advance their racist civil liberties issues. To advance their Liberal views on gun control, on Florida’s “Stand your ground” law and to further divide this country down racial lines.

They have to CREATE their own racism because without racism, they would have no purpose!

Mckayla’s grandmother told CBS4’s Maggie Newland that the girl has a bullet lodged in her leg bone that doctors do not plan on removing, however, she should fully recover. The grandmother said she was on the phone with Mckayla when the barrage of bullets began and the girl said, “Grandma, I’ve been shot.”

Aventura Police Sgt. Chris Goranitis told CBS4 News the funeral was for 21-year-old Morvin Andre who died on March 16th, one day after he jumped from the 4th to 2nd floor of the Aventura Mall parking garage in an effort to escape pursuit by Bloomingdale’s loss prevention employees.

The Medical Examiner ruled his death a suicide because he chose to jump rather than be apprehended, according to Goranitis.

Meantime, a senior police commander told CBS4 investigative reporter Jim DeFede that Andre had some connection to several South Florida gangs and some of those gang members were in attendance at his wake to pay their respects.

The commander said someone at the wake touched Andre’s body in the casket in a way that other gangs took as disrespectful. This led to an argument inside the funeral home which spilled out to the street.

Members of one gang retrieved an assault rifle and a handgun from a car and opened fire at other gang members in front of the funeral home, according to the CBS4 source.

Investigators believe that a white vehicle may be involved, according to Miami-Dade Police.

Pastor A.D. Lenoir Sr., who presided over the funeral service for Morvin Andre, said it was a chaotic scene after the shooting and he tried to calm everyone down.

“It was horrific, people were going crazy, screaming, running, just chaos.”

Pastor Lenoir was with the victim who died on the scene. “It’s horrible seeing someone pass on like that.”

Lenoir had a message to community following the shooting.

“It’s horrible the way our young people are responding to anger, to frustration, to their fears, to whatever issues they’re experiencing, it’s a low-down shame and I think it should quit. If you have problems, I think you should talk to your pastor, talk to someone that can help you, not to respond violently.”

Witness Jacques Leonet agreed.

“It’s more than crazy. They are destroying the community.”

No arrests have been made.

A total of 14 people were shot which makes it one of the worst mass shootings in the history of South Florida.
