Two Sons (Which does the media report on?)
Founding Ideals ^ | 04/09/2012 | Aaron Gee & Steve Graff

The traditional media’s story of the moment is the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. That incident was initially reported as potentially a white on black racially motivated shooting of an innocent unarmed teen. The media’s response was to go into hyperbole overdrive. Editing 911 tapes to make it appear as if Zimmerman was racist and having “audio experts” declare that a racial slur could be heard on the same tapes.

The racial demagogues Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackon descended on Sanford and lynch mob mentality ensued. The demagogues accused the local police of playing favorites due to race. Politicians rushed to speak out on the tragedy. President Obama said “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon”.

The Florida Governor assigned a special prosecutor to review the case and unlike others asked that the investigators be given time. The 911 tapes as well as video and other evidence has been released to the public.

Then some facts starting coming out that weren’t so convenient to the MSM story line. The shooter was a self identified Hispanic that had fought to have the local police disciplined for beating a black homeless man. Trayvon Martin wasn’t a 12 year old boy scout. The MSM, confronted with their malfeasance and the alternate media’s relentless digging for facts has caused the narrative to change. The MSM now calls Zimmerman a ‘white Hispanic’ and the story is ‘complicated’ in an effort to hold on to the narrative.

Two sons dead. One at the hand of a private citizen, one by the incompetence of our government. The press has decided that the death of a border patrol agent and the continuing cover up afterwards barely rates a mention. They are too busy going after Florida's stand your ground law when not stoking the lynch mob mentality for ratings.

Thank you sir. We keep trying to remind folks what is at stake. The only way we’re going to change anything, if enough ‘independents’ understand the consequences of keeping dishonorable people in office.

That’s a powerful picture, if one has a basic understanding of both situations.

Thankfully most freepers have a basic understanding of just that. I think that image is one of the best that Steve has done; it is simple, powerful, honest, and true.

The MSM now calls Zimmerman a ‘white Hispanic

I am white and my wife is Mexican from Mexico. She does not call herself white, she does not call herself Indian. With very rare exceptions Mexicans are a Mixture of White and Indian blood. However, she does call herself Hispanic. The only thing we do not know about her blood is what percentage is white and what percentage is Indian.

Personally I do not give a damn. She is my wife and I love her.
