  • NBC, Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, Holder, Lee, et al, stoke racist flames

    "This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy." This is what two Kansas City black teens told a younger white child. The black kids poured gasoline on the white kid and set him on fire a month ago (see here also). Did you even know this happened? Do you remember the 2007, big "Jena 6" lie in which six black teens beat up a white kid in Jena, Louisiana, and Al Sharpton hailed it as "the start of the 21st century civil rights movement." The white teen who was assaulted in 2006 had nothing to do...

    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...

    Watch the video. The story doesn't mention the characteristics of the mob members. Wonder why not? Mpls. Police Ponder 8 P.M. Curfew After Youth Mob AttacksThere have been six mob attacks, in all, since February. Now, police are now wondering if an 8 o’clock curfew keeping anyone 17 and under from two downtown streets will stop the violence. Nicollet Mall is a destination for many. Outdoor patios where drinks and food are served are a draw not only to people who live here, but also tourist. Since February, when the sun goes down, later in the evening, mobs of teens...

    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?

    SANFORD, Fla. — The people who could end up paying the financial price for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin are, ultimately, the homeowners of the Retreat at Twin Lakes development, say specialists who deal with homeowners associations. If George Zimmerman, their crime watch program captain, is charged with and convicted of killing Martin, the community's association and property management company probably will be sued by the victim's family over the way the program was established and operated, said Donna Berger, a lawyer who specializes in homeowners association law. "They may wind up getting sued and getting hit with hundreds...

    On March 17th, three white men were leaving an Applebees restaurant after midnight in Seneca, South Carolina. One of the men, Terry Moore, 32, of Macon County, NC, went to the bathroom while his two friends went straight to their car. When Moore walked to the car alone, he encountered between 15 and 20 black men. The men allegedly yelled racial slurs at him like "tree honkey" and "cracker," then brutally attacked him. Moore's friends say that he was zapped with a tazer and then stomped on after he fell to the crowd. The victim suffered several serious head injuries...

    National Review Online ^ | March 25, 2012 | Heather Mac Donald
    The fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month by a neighborhood-watch volunteer was a sickening and — unless new facts come to light — unjustified loss of an innocent life. Unless Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, had reason to believe that Martin was armed, shooting him was a grossly disproportionate response to a fistfight, even leaving aside the fact that Zimmerman had initiated the encounter. If such a shooting is justified under Florida’s broad self-defense law, that law has licensed violence that goes far beyond legitimate self-defense. Every American shares the despair of Martin’s family over this heartbreaking tragedy...

    An analysis of media reports on the Trayvon Martin shooting reveals how a local crime story became a national racial outrage. The incident happened on Feb. 26, 2012, and was primarily reported in local outlets. The first major national news report was on CBS This Morning on March 8, and did not mention race. The story did not take on a racial dimension until later that day, when the AP mistakenly identified the shooter as white (George Zimmerman is of mixed Hispanic descent). The racial claims were then repeated and amplified by other media outlets, including Gawker, which claimed the...

    We all know how much Barack Obama likes calling people up to apologize or feign empathy with them after some tragedy. He called Sandra Fluke after the big, bad Rush Limbaugh called her mean names on his nationally syndicated radio show. Obama then called the family of Trayvon Martin this past week, several weeks after the young 17-year old African-American youth was shot and killed by a Hispanic man, George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Of course, Zimmerman claims he was being attacked and an eyewitness apparently is verifying that story. Oddly enough, about the same time of the Trayvon Martin...

C.L. Bryant said in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller. The conservative black pastor who was once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP called Jackson and Sharpton “race hustlers” and said they are “acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.”

Incredibly, one panelist urged people to be more "mature" and not "poison the atmosphere." I say "incredibly" because this panelist was none other than the race-hustling, anti-Semitic "civil rights activist" and MSNBC talk show host, Al Sharpton.

    Baltimore Jewish Life ^ | 8/20/11 | Al Sharpton
    Twenty years after the Crown Heights riots, the city has grown, and I believe I have grown. I'd like to share a few of my reflections about the choices I made, including the mistakes, with an eye toward advancing racial understanding and harmony. On the day of Aug. 20, 1991, I received a call from Carmel Cato -- who told me that he would like my assistance in dealing with the fact that his 7-year-old son had been killed in a car accident the night before in Crown Heights. His son's death had sparked violence throughout that night, with people...

    (JTA) -- The brother of Yankel Rosenbaum, the visiting Jewish scholar murdered in the 1991 Crown Heights riots, is decrying the participation of the Rev. Al Sharpton in a synagogue's panel discussion on the event's 20th anniversary. Sharpton is scheduled to appear on a four-person panel titled "State of Black-Jewish Relations: Twenty Years after Crown Heights" Sunday event at the Hampton Synagogue in Westhampton Beach, N.Y. The synagogue's rabbi, Marc Schneier, is hosting the event and will be on the panel. “Rabbi Marc Schneier should take a damn good, hard look at the videos of the riots over the three-day...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton may skip a panel discussion in the Hamptons on the 1991 Crown Heights riots after Jewish leaders blasted the organizer for inviting him. "I may or may not go. I refuse to play into their extremism," Sharpton said last night. "If it is not an event that will heal, it is not an event that I will partake in." Controversial rabbi-to-the stars Marc Schneier planned the Sunday confab to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the violence in Brooklyn between blacks and Hasidic Jews. Schneier defended his decision to invite Sharpton, saying the event will focus...

    REP. JERROLD NADLER (D), NEW YORK: First of all, you have to fight them, second of all, you have to educate the American people. And you have to define that there are two separate problems we are dealing with. And we`re putting the less immediate problems front and center with not dealing with the real immediate problem. SHARPTON: What is the less immediate problem? NADLER: The less immediate problem is the deficit. We can deal with that a couple years from now. Right now, we must do exactly what Secretary Reich are saying, we`ve got to deal with the jobs...

    Liberals:Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee: "All of the Republican candidates have made clear their allegiance to the Tea Party, supporting extreme policies that would hurt the middle class, seniors, and students. The only winner tonight was the Tea Party." One thing which you should learn about the left; whatever they accuse conservatives of doing, that is their modus operandi. Wasserman Schultz: "Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul represent the extreme right wing, which is the core of the Republican Party today." Again, almost every attack that they make is a description of themselves....
  • Will Comcast Reveal Ties to MSNBC Anchorman-in-Waiting Al Sharpton?

    "Al Sharpton, anchorman" - the phrase has an undeniably odd ring. Yet on MSNBC it's already a part-time reality. And his close relationship to MSNBC's parent, Comcast Corp., may enable him to become full-time permanent host of the cable network's 6 P.M. news slot. If Sharpton gets promoted - the announcement could come any day - it would be the ultimate coup in his ongoing campaign to obtain respectability to cover a long history of racial incitement. It also might be a conflict of interest. Comcast, the nation's largest cable owner-operator, this January completed a $30 billion purchase of...
