WorldNetDaily’s Jack Cashill thinks Geroge Zimmerman is a heroic figure akin to Mother Theresa and Nelson Mandela who was a the victim of a media conspiracy that somehow started even before he shot and killed Trayon Martin.
He writes today that Martin is a “would-be knockout king” who targeted Zimmerman for an “assault.”
Amazingly, Cashill cites FBI reports that there are “three times as many anti-black hate crimes as anti-white ones” as proof that the Justice Department is conspiring against white people and ignoring black-on-white violence.
The media’s collective failure to acknowledge the racial nature of the Knockout Game enabled them to turn would-be knockout king Trayvon Martin into a martyr and his victim, George Zimmerman, into a racist vigilante.
If he had not had an audience, Trayvon Martin would likely have made it back safely to the townhouse where he was staying in Sanford, Fla., that rainy night in February 2012.
In sum, Martin saw Zimmerman not as the hulking vigilante the media did but as a vulnerable, possibly gay white man nearly half-a-foot smaller than he.
As to Martin, although the media chose not to let the public know, he was an aspiring mixed martial artist who had recently been disciplined both at home and at school for starting fights.
By the time of this incident, the Knockout Game was a well-established phenomenon among young black males, especially troubled ones like Martin, the product of a broken home and a broken culture. Martin’s assault on Zimmerman fit an obvious pattern.
The State of Florida, Attorney General Holder, President Barack Obama and the entirety of the mainstream media chose not to see that pattern.
Eric Holder’s Justice Department continues not to see it. In 2012, incredible as it seems, the FBI reported three times as many anti-black hate crimes as anti-white ones.
If nothing else, Holder’s perverse enforcement of the law shows just how absurd these laws are in the first place. What they punish is thought, not action, and in the Orwellian world of the DOJ thought is punished with wildly “disparate” selectivity.
