- In fact, it’s been a tough quarter-century for them. Reality keeps knocking the liberal media off its high horse. When they picked up the Trayvon Martin case, hordes of TV dupes donned hoods and said they, too, were all young black kids being murdered by racist vigilantes. Then we find out Zimmerman is some kind of Peruvian Jew and may have had his ass kicked by Trayvon before the shooting, so they drop it. They wanted Dharun Ravi to go jail for ten years for the hate crime of pranking his roommate, but the evidence left him serving 30 days for “colossal insensitivity.” When blacks are randomly assassinated in Oklahoma, the left quickly goes mute when they discover one of the shooters is Cherokee.
When a white couple is raped and dismembered in Knoxville, the media is suddenly deaf, dumb, and blind. When children get gang-raped but the bad guys are Muslim, even the police won’t touch it.
This kind of naiveté would be laughable if it wasn’t so deadly. In Louisiana, the Jena 6 were duped into pulverizing a kid based on a noose incident the media wrongly determined was about race. This fake story had a domino effect and years later we’re left with jail time and lawsuits. Countless violent attacks were committed on behalf of Trayvon, at least two of which left their victims (Dallas Watts and Matthew Owens) comatose.
