Democrats Say Talk Radio Killed Black Florida Teen
Investor's Business Daily ^ | March 23, 2012

Posted on 03/23/2012 7:19:31 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

On MSNBC last week, Democratic Party strategist Karen Finney blamed talk radio king Rush Limbaugh for the fatal shooting last month of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch captain in a mixed neighborhood in Florida.

Limbaugh, along with Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, "reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance," Finney said.

In the Trayvon Martin incident, Finney claimed "those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences."

One might ask how Finney knows that Martin's half-Peruvian killer, George Zimmerman (whose photo suggests he's a person of color himself), listens to Limbaugh or has been affected by the candidates' speeches.

As in ex-Rep. Gabby Giffords' shooting last year, this is a case of a Democratic mouthpiece accusing foes of their big-government schemes of murder. So much for President Obama's call for civility in political discourse.

But Finney is just one manifestation of a new war aiming to silence Limbaugh and like-minded talk radio hosts. After Limbaugh several weeks ago used rude words to describe a Georgetown law school feminist activist who wants taxpayers to finance her contraception, the Los Angeles city council last week entered the realm of government censorship of the airwaves.

By 13-to-2 vote the L.A. City Council called on "management of radio and television stations in Los Angeles to do everything in their power to ensure that their on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs over public airwaves in the City of Los Angeles."

Do you have a link for the photo? If true, it’s 180 degrees from the depiction of Martin as this boyish-looking, gangly shrimp of a teen.

Well the only way people will find out that he is half latino is if the media reports it, ABC 7 here in LA actually reported on Zimmerman being half hispanic so I was shocked..but you can bet that MSDNC and CNN won’t mention it, doesn’t fit into their “Gotta get Obama elected no matter if we have to destroy this country to get it done” agenda

The only thing preventing Detroiters from blaming “those people” in the suburbs is that Detroit hasn’t had a Republican in office in over 40 years.
These murders are probably the only crimes they’re NOT blaming on whites.

Yet.

Of course, everything can be blamed on talk radio.

Sarah, you know full well that the EPA has strict regulations concerning the introduction of untreated human waste into the water supply.

Ed Schultz is is a complete and total waste of a human. He is also so filled with his own waste that his eyes are a dark brown and his ears probably leak.

Have you considered the effect on the fish?

No, clearly we cannot encourage him to jump in a lake. An outhouse, septic tank or sewage treatment facility is clearly the proper place for him...and then he’s still pollute it.

;)

“That’s what Jesse Jackson did when he admitted he was relieved to see the kids following him were white.”

I remember that; think he’ll even admit he ever said that? He also used to call abortion “genocide”; I think he was much more sincere back then.

“Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are hoping and praying for a black on white war.”

They wouldn’t benefit from that; their whole scam is pretending that they are protecting whites from black anger (imagine that!). In the event of such a conflict (which will never happen), whites would simply deal with the armed blacks, and wouldn’t need “ministers” to do it.

In the end, along the lines of Stalin’s quip about the Pope, how many hoodies do Jackson & Sharpton have?

The answer? 0

“This kind of crime happens in and around Detroit every *WEEK.*”

Newark NJ had gotten pretty bad, too; Mayor Booker was p!ssed off because the teachers union had plastered “STOP THE KILLING” all over billboards & buses when they set new murder records a couple of years ago - it didn’t fit the perception he wanted to present that it was safe for whites (or anyone) to be in Newark after dark. Some of the shooting were in broad daylight anyway; people in the suburbs around Newark know it isn’t safe any time. Mass police presence makes some parts safe some of the time, but it is sketchy and usually based around entertainment events.

I assure you there will be an election in November; even Lincoln had to run for re-election during the Civil War.

Any attempt to cancel elections would be justification for Americans to shoot any government representative on sight (including law enforcement).

“The girl said that, during the phone call, she heard someone ask Martin what he was doing and heard Martin ask why the person was following him, Crump said.”

This was the girlfriend that was on the phone with Martin. So why didn't Martin just tell Zimmerman what he was doing? and where his house was?

Talk radio? What a joke.

Google ‘Gangsta Rap’ and listen and watch a few videos if you can stomach them. There you will see and hear the reason these kids are killing and getting themselves killed.

I think the father needs to come clean about why his son was kicked out of school.

Answering your a.m. reply. Star Parker hit on something that I hadn’t thought of. She compared black conservatives to runaway slaves, and the reaction to them from other blacks stems from fears of the ostracism that comes with being conservative. The runaway slaves, when recaptured, were stripped naked and beat in front of the whole group of slaves as an object lesson. So if you dare to be a black conservative you will be treated like Clarence Thomas and nobody wants to go through that. That is why black conservatives are persecuted in public. Democrats make sure that the “slaves” understand the lesson that they dare not leave the plantation.

I’m sure that peaceful elections are what the majority of Americans want.

If violence breaks out to intimidate the older White population into staying home for their own safety, then violence should be met with violence and should be the reason to outlaw communism under any name or description.

We should throw them out from our schools, government including intelligence, military, etc. and put them in jail.

The bloodshed MUST have a price tag.

Yeah, well, President Clinton blamed Rush Limbaugh for being an instigator of the bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City, almost 20 years ago, and Rush is still on the air. These screeds will be just as effective.

If “Talk Radio” is responsible for the death of a black teenager in Florida, then liberals are responsible for:

1. Maryland — A video has appeared on Worldstarhipop.com of four black teenagers beating up a white trans-gender teenager to the point that she suffered an alleged seizure in a McDonald’s.

The video shows the manager and employees of the McDonald’s trying to stop the fight, but the group of black girls continued pounding on the white teenager.

The white girl began twitching on the floor a few minutes after the black girls left the McDonald’s.

2. A mob that has been described as dozens to 100 black teenagers ran through the Wisconsin State Fair at closing time last night, beating white people at random.

Witnesses said the group of African-American teenagers ran through the parking lot and banged on cars, attacking only vehicles with white people inside. One witness said the mob pulled a white kid from his bike and beat him in the street. Others said the black teens looted the Midway games and stole prizes.

3. SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) — 16-year-old Jerome Hamilton a black teen is one of three young black men now charged in connection with the shooting death of 21-year-old Catherine Solinski-Blain a pregnant white women. He was originally charged with first-degree murder. However, Assistant Oakland Prosecutor Robert Novy said Tuesday during a court hearing, “We've amended to open murder so that we can argue our theories.”

Solinski-Blain was pregnant when shot to death last October outside the Rib Rack restaurant in Lathrup Village where she worked as a manager.

4. May 19, 2010, two black teens were denied youthful offender status and sentenced to 6 years in prison for the gang assault charge that landed another teen in the hospital.

19 year old Brian Milligan a white man was kicked, punched, and hit with a rock last August at the corner of Genesee and Floss.

Milligan had just walked his girlfriend home and was returning to his grandmother's house when three (3) black teenagers, 18 year old Donte Lee, 16 year old Antoine Blackmon, and a 12 year old cousin attacked Milligan.

He suffered severe injuries to his head and jaw. His family originally wanted the attack investigated as a hate crime. They believe Milligan was beat up because he is white and his girlfriend is black.

5. White Girl Beaten On A Bus By Blacks, watch the video at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nb_HcZDuRBk

Liberals claim to empower blacks to go after whites, including the AFLCIO boss claiming at an Obumbum rally, “take the bastards out!” Liberals are responsible for the blacks attacking whites!

These attacks from the left over race are guaranteeing that if there was ever an election that every living white American will show up for, it will be this one.

New Yorkers are still waiting for Al Sharpton to pay the price for the racial incitement that led to the Freddy’s Massacre in Harlem in the 1990s.
