Bernadette Loesch engaged in paradoxical, progressive reasoning in her reply to my letter about the left clinging to a 1950's, 1960's race mentality. I provided a variety of examples of how the media used quotes and photos and took them out of context in an effort to convict Zimmerman prematurely, in the court of public opinion. Her reply to those examples was to ask me why I took them out of context. How does one respond to such a Yogi Berra like reply any better than the AFLAC duck's reply, "whaaaaa?"
So let me ask Bernadette to explain the actions of the left as I offer some more examples of extreme liberal bias. Why would prominent Democrats like Gov. Jennifer Granholm and congressman Bobby Rush don hoodies while Jamie Foxx walks about wearing a T-shirt with Trayvon's picture on it, if they are not promoting a fallacy that white on black crime is still omnipresent in this society and without proper lawful prosecution? Why would Hassan Adeeb, a Maryland teacher, use a "current affairs" lesson plan which compared the killing of Trayvon to the killing of a 14 year old black boy, Emmitt Till for allegedly flirting with a white girl? The lesson included information from "Think Progress", a far left think tank and the commentary from former MSNBC attack dog, Ed Schultz. Why let students follow the trial first, ask questions and come to their own conclusions using objective, critical thinking skills? Because that would interfere with the indoctrination of students into their activist agenda on racialism. One can almost envision MSNBC host and race baiter, the Rev. Al Sharpton, nodding his head in approval.
Where is the outrage by compassionate, understanding and tolerant modern day liberals, ideals that Bernadette decries we all should live by, with regard to black on black crimes in places like Chicago, Detroit and DC? Why does the decaying mainstream media not even bother to mention that there is far more black on white crime than vice versa and ignore it as though it no longer exists?
I'll bet you dollars to donuts that Bernadette has never even heard of George Thomas. Until a couple days ago, I had never heard of him. Thomas is black and he and four other blacks including one woman, carjacked, abducted, tortured, raped and murdered a young white couple, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, in the most horrific way imaginable. If you have the stomach for it, you can read the gut wrenching, heart breaking details in Jack Kerwick's July 3rd column at frontpagemag.com.
Hey Bernadette, do you suppose that virtually every living, breathing person in this country would be aware of this sickening case if Christian and Newsom had been black and their assailants white? And please, no more progressive, paradoxical poppycock answers if you please. Racialism is a core component of the progressive disease that is "political correctness". It's the kind of secular humanism and moral relativism that causes blood to shoot out of ones eyes. It is how modern day liberals can ignore the acts of the George Thomas types of the world and still sleep with a clear conscience. How's that for "perceived injustice", Bernadette? Do me a favor and go read Walter William's "Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon". It just may cure you of your apparent "white guilt" and allow you to have that open mind that you want conservatives types like me to have.
