The ‘New School’ on CNN - If Rachel Jeantel is the future of America, we’re completely doomed.
American Spectator ^ | Robert Stacy McCain

Posted on 07/18/2013 11:17:06 PM PDT by neverdem

Becoming a teenage television star turns out to be surprisingly easy: Testify for the prosecution in the murder trial of an innocent man in a case that liberals want to turn into a carnival of racial hatred.

Rachel Jeantel’s appearance on Monday night’s Piers Morgan Live was a new low in the relentless dumbing down of American culture. Her claim to fame is that she was having a cell-phone conversation with Trayvon Martin shortly before the 17-year-old was shot to death by George Zimmerman. Having been discovered by Florida civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump and offered as “Witness 8” for the prosecution, Jeantel was undeniably the star of the Zimmerman trial — not in a good way. During the course of her testimony, she introduced the phrase “creepy-ass cracker” to the national vocabulary and embarrassed herself when she was forced to admit that she could not read a letter she allegedly wrote to Trayvon’s parents. Asked to read the letter aloud in court two weeks ago, the Miami teen confessed: “I don’t read cursive.”

Exactly what Rachel Jeantel does read is a mystery. She appears to be a typical specimen of the sub-literate youth warehoused within the Miami-Dade County school system. Anyone who has read the text-messages Trayvon exchanged with Jeantel and his other friends must despair for the future of the country. After watching Jeantel on CNN Monday, it’s even harder to be hopeful. The 19-year-old was asked by Morgan to react to a juror’s comments about the incoherence of her testimony.

“Well, the jury, they see their fact,” Jeantel replied. “None offense to the jury, they old. That’s old school people. We in the new school, our generation, my generation.”

God help us, she’s probably right: Rachel Jeantel is “the new school” — the emblematic star of an...

You only have to look at where Piers hails from. England’s illiterate youth are promoted in their films and TV shows like working class (or not-working, no class) heroes. Somehow the lowest common denominator is the sought after standard and those with a good education, like Piers, promote this ignorance.

Some days it makes me want to punch everything!

I have to admit...I had not heard that homophophic term before.

I believe the correct term is “creepy ass cracka’.”

“...and embarrassed herself when she was forced to admit that she could not read a letter she allegedly wrote to Trayvon’s parents. Asked to read the letter aloud in court two weeks ago, the Miami teen confessed: “I don’t read cursive.”

Curious, that.

Correct, and that's where the DOJ Civil Rights Investigation will collapse.

Zimmerman was 'profiled' as being gay and a Hate Crime was committed upon his person as a result. We have actual trial testimony (now public record) to that effect.

Wait until that hits the newspapers. Holder prosecuting a guy accused of being gay -- and was attacked for it!

Got popcorn?

Yes.

Travon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman, who was struggling to save his own life. (I just saw the vid showing the EDGE of the sidewalk on which Martin was trying to splatter Zimmerman's brains.) Some would call me a racist for saying that Martin was trying to kill Zimmerman. But in truth, what sentenced Martin to that fate, and thousands of other young blacks, to early deaths, are many of the very people who would claim to care about him / them. Worse, the cost of "the new school" Jeantel describes has only begun to be felt.

Fascinating look at what happens when two world views collide... but these world views do not have equal claim to objectivity. Funny how the liberals are often bawling that one should talk things out with prospective criminal assailants and yet never apply that standard to the Trayvons of the world. Even railing intemperately at GZ about how he was being a “creepy ass cracker” would have been infinitely preferable to the assault that Trayvon launched, and no it would not have gotten Trayvon shot. At least not by George Zimmerman... though when the police, already called, showed up and Tray put on a ‘tude then the results might have differed.

Over and over, CNN’s hosts and commentators brought up Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law,

Because that's what they were told to do by Eric Holder and the Department of Just Us. There's every indication that this was planned in the Obama Administration. Trying to gin up sentiment against gun rights is the real point; convicting Zimmerman would have been gravy.

Half of the FR threads “make fun of people because of how they look”, e.g., M. Obama, BH Obama, Helen Thomas, Jay Carney, Zimmerman trial judge, etc. Why give this anti-American mouth-breather a pass?

And a mere picture doesn’t impact perceptions about “how superior we are” to her. A single sentence out of her mouth verifies that fact. Picture: Just icing on the cake.

Hey! She says she has a 3.0 average and some talk show guy is offering her a scholarship to any historical black college. And they wouldn’t dare flunk her out just because she can’t read cursive. Or speak and write proper English. Or because she didn’t know the meaning of simple words. She new school!

The guy even offered her SAT tutoring, because deep down he knows she can’t even get in to any historical black, white, green or community college.

She's the new face of the Democrat party - well, of the part that props up the white liberal elites who run the democrat party... They have a place for her in the 'new school' nation - the "United States of Detroit"

Who is “we”?

RJ is demonstrative of HER culture, not those who wish to be successful, respected and respectable, and law abiding.

RJ was never more than ten seconds away from going “straight up ghetto up in here” and simply cannot STFU now that she has been given national media exposure. And her “handlers”, if she has any, are making no attempt to get her to. They are indeed encouraging this mental midget to spread her lies. “Cracka” isn’t racist, my posterior. Trust me, it’s racist, I have been called it enough.

“They” are doomed at present course, not the people that I share commonalities with.
