Jackson comes to save the foreigner…

MyFoxDFW: The Rev. Jesse Jackson was in Dallas Tuesday to make sure Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan is getting the best medical care possible.

Rev. Jackson said Duncan’s family asked for his help. He recently tweeted that “he should not be shunned” and to “kill the disease and not the person.”

Thomas deserves the love and the best medical treatment American can afford as has happened for all the other Americans who have contracted this terrible disease,” he told FOX 4. “He must be treated as a patient with all the human rights deserved, not as a criminal.”

Duncan moved to Dallas from Liberia about a week before he got sick. Although Liberian officials said he lied on his travel forms when leaving the country, Jackson believes he did not know he was exposed.
The reverend said Duncan simply tried to help a dying woman and then came to Dallas to get married.

Doctors at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital gave Duncan the experimental drug brincidofovir after his conditioned worsened over the weekend. But, Jackson believes the hospital has been slow at getting him the best medicine.
“Now there’s such a national concern about it he’s getting an experimental drug. We’re gonna hope and pray that it is successful,” he said.

He pointed out that Duncan was sent home from the hospital despite having symptoms “maybe because he didn’t have insurance.”

Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price chimed in at Commissioner’s Court that what happened to Duncan at the hospital was the “elephant in the room.” He said when “people who look like me show up at hospital with no insurance, they’re treated differently.”

Rev. Jackson met with Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and about 100 local pastors Tuesday morning. He prayed with Duncan’s family and plans to organize a prayer vigil for them later in the day.

Jackson shared a story about Jesus praying over the lepers in quarantine.
“He was firm in his love for the person fighting the disease. We must have that same sense of love for Thomas, to embrace him and fight this disease,” he said.

Meanwhile, health officials are closely monitoring 48 people who came in contact with Duncan before he was admitted to the hospital. Ten of those people are considered “high risk.”

“This is a very important week. We need to be prepared in Dallas for what could happen. If any of the family members God forbid becomes ill, we need to be ready,” said Dr. David Lakey, Texas State Health Commissioner.

Concern about of the deadly disease spreading in the United States and other countries continues to grow. On Monday a Spanish nurse was diagnosed with Ebola and President Barack Obama said the government is considering ordering more careful screening of airline passengers arriving from West Africa.

Gov. Rick Perry called on the federal government to stop Ebola at the borders.

“Customs officials and border patrol at all points of entry should immediately be directed to conduct enhanced screening procedures,” Perry said at a press conference Monday. “Those steps may be something as simple as taking a temperature. These much needed screening procedures will necessitate fully prepared quarantine stations.”

Shocking! FBI finds no evidence Zimmerman’s a racist!

Trayvon Martin (l); George Zimmerman (r)

From Reuters, via NewsMax.com, July 12, 2012:

FBI interviews of dozens of friends, coworkers and neighbors of George Zimmerman found no evidence that the accused murderer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was a racist, according to new documents released on Thursday.

The reports from the FBI were among a new collection of evidence, including crime scene photos, bank surveillance videos and other documents, that were released by Florida’s state attorney’s office in the racially charged case.

Zimmerman, a 28-year-old Hispanic white man, is charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Martin, a 17-year-old black teen.

Zimmerman claims he killed Martin in self defense after the unarmed Martin attacked him and slammed his head into the sidewalk during a confrontation in a gated community in the central Florida city of Sanford.

He is currently living in an undisclosed safe house after being released on $1 million bail last week.

FBI agents investigating whether race was a factor in the shooting spoke with Sanford police officers, Zimmerman’s bosses and work colleagues, friends, neighbors and others to determine if he had ever shown any racial prejudice.

In one interview detailed in the evidence, Sanford Police Detective Christopher Serino, the lead investigator in the Martin case, told the FBI he did not believe Zimmerman’s shooting of Martin was motivated by race.

“Serino believed that Zimmerman’s actions were not based on Martin’s skin color rather based on his attire,” according to a report.

Serino told investigators that members of local gangs, who called themselves “Goons,” frequently wore “hoodies,” or hooded sweatshirts, and he believed Zimmerman “took it upon himself to view Martin as acting suspicious.”

Martin was wearing a hoodie and returning from a convenience store when Zimmerman called a 911 dispatcher and said the teen looked suspicious and then followed him.

Serino described Zimmerman as “overzealous” and having a “little hero complex.” He submitted a report to Sanford police officials and the state attorney’s office saying there was sufficient probable cause to arrest and charge Zimmerman with manslaughter.

Martin’s killing drew national attention after police and prosecutors initially declined to arrest and charge Zimmerman, citing Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law and his claim that he used deadly force because he believed his life was being threatened.

The documents do not provide any blockbuster evidence but include additional details about the shooting.

A former law enforcement officer who said he taught Zimmerman how to shoot told investigators that Zimmerman told him he made eye contact and yelled for help when two neighbors came outside at different times during the scuffle, according to the evidence.

The claim that Zimmerman made eye contact with neighbors shortly before shooting Martin is at odds with statements released so far by prosecutors.

Many witnesses told investigators that it was too dark to identify the two people wrestling on the ground or to determine who was on top or on bottom or who was yelling for help.

The name of the former law enforcement officer was blacked out in his statement, but the person was described as a Zimmerman friend and former Seminole County deputy.

The witness, who was interviewed by agents of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI, said he was called to the scene the night of Martin’s killing by Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, and waited with her at the police department while Zimmerman was questioned.

The witness also accompanied Zimmerman when he recreated the shooting for police and a subsequent police interrogation.

Two weeks after the shooting, Zimmerman contacted a gun seller with whom he had done business before, according to the statement of another unnamed witness.

The witness stated that Zimmerman wanted to purchase a new firearm because “his life is in danger and he needs more guns.”

Wow! Hot Diggidy Damn!

You mean all the media insinuations; and the incendiary rhetoric of black politicians and self-appointed black spokesmen, such as Jesse Jackson calling Trayvon Martin a “martyr” and hysterically proclaiming “blacks are under attack”; and the President of the United States fanning the flames by saying that “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”; and Blacks across the country demonstrating in outrage like that incident in North Miami Beach where a mob numbering 80 to 100 used their sense of aggrievedness as an excuse to loot a Walgreens store….

You mean all these race hustlers are wrong???

I’m shocked! Just shocked!

Media Pundit Named in Jesse Jackson Lawsuit
Cliff Kincaid — May 16, 2012Tamara Holder, a Fox News contributor, is accused of having an affair with Jesse Jackson, Sr. in a lawsuit that alleges the illegal use of a gay Jackson employee to facilitate the relationship.
The accuser, Tommy R. Bennett, was Jackson’s personal travel assistant and ran the legal clinic at Jackson’s organization, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. He says he was eventually fired for protesting his treatment by Jackson and other PUSH employees and is seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

 

Et Tu Tamara?

Et Tu Tamara?

Holder has not responded to repeated requests for comment from Accuracy in Media, but Jackson’s press representative, Lauren Love, says the allegations are false and will be proven so.
Bennett attorney Thomas V. Leverso says that Jackson and PUSH have been stonewalling a legal response for many months but that investigations and the case are moving forward. Leverso tells Accuracy in Media that witnesses have come forward to verify the allegations against Jackson.
Jackson, a minister and Democratic politician who served as an aide to Martin Luther King, Jr., suffered a major embarrassment in 2010 when he admitted to an extramarital affair that produced an illegitimate child.

For the rest of the details of this man of Honor, Justice and Integrity. Oh wait that was the post on George Washington.  OK the rest on Slime Ball HERE!!

Ya just can’t make this up folks.

Young Americans are not buying the black race hustle

Despite the constant, incessant, pervasive portrayal by the media, schools, and  cultural and political elites, that blacks are the eternal victims and white people are unregenerate racist oppressors, there is evidence that the indoctrination and brainwashing have failed.

More and more Americans, including young Americans, are just not buying the victimology fairy-tale — not any more. The shameful behavior of the MSM and black race hustlers like Jesse Jackson, the New Black Panthers, and Barack Obama (“If I had a son, he’d look just like Trayvon!”) in the Trayvon Martin case — before the judicial system even has a chance to deal with the shooting — will only alienate even more Americans. (See “Doing the Trayvon race hustle.”)

Kevin “Coach” Collins reports for the Western Center for Journalism, May 2, 2012:

Recently released results from the Public Religion Research Institute hold seriously bad news for the long term viability of the Democrats and Barack Obama’s chances of reelection.  The pollsters spoke to adults between the ages of 18 and 24 about their views on race relations, and their findings were surprising.

One of the questions they asked these young people centered on whether they thought the government paid too much attention to the complaints of blacks and minorities in general. They were asked about the existence of reverse discrimination and if it was a problem in their view.

These young people – “millennials” as they are labeled by sociologists- don’t seem to be following the Democrats’ script on how they should think about racial issues. Almost half of them (46%) believe the government pays too much attention to the complaints of minorities, and 48% feel that discrimination against whites is a considerable problem.

When the responses from minorities were removed to count only the responses from white millennials (who represent 2/3 of the millennial population), a sizable majority  (56%) agreed that the government caters to the concerns of minorities too much. This is not good news for a Democrat Party that so heavily relied on “white guilt” to elect an unqualified black man as our president.

This is a hammer blow to the race-hustling world view of the Democrat Party and it’s main “white guilt” salesmen like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.  Young white people have been taught a conflicting message, and the framers of that message will reap the destruction it brings.

A lifetime of listening to baseless charges that they have somehow discriminated against minorities is apparently not being passively accepted by white millennials. They don’t feel guilty of discrimination toward minorities. Apparently, a majority of them are beginning to compare the devastating effect “Affirmative Action” programs have had on their innocent parents and older siblings to the unwarranted preferential treatment of minorities by our government and refusing to smile and accept their undeserved punishment.

A new book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, is also helping to expose the victimology race hustle. (H/t FOTM reader Wade)

Written by Colin Flaherty, an award-winning Washington Post (!) reporter, the book is subtitled “The return of race riots to America and how the media ignore them.”

This is the description of the book on Amazon.com:

Along with widespread racial crime and violence. In hundreds of episodes in more than 50 cities since 2010, groups of black people are roaming the streets of America — assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, even raping and killing. But local media and public officials are silent. Crime is color blind, says a Milwaukee police chief. Race is not important, a Chicago newspaper editor says. The kids were just blowing off steam, says a Philadelphia social worker. Thanks to YouTube, we now know the truth. This is the first book that puts it all together. “This is a challenging book. An interesting and powerful and ultimately persuasive book by a great American writer not afraid to look at one of the most thought about but unspoken features of American life.” — Dan Auld, award-winning journalist. “Magic. Flaherty speaks from his strength, which is understanding media. He links together abundant citations, all from mainstream media and many from African-American media, in order to illustrate his point. ” Houston Examiner

Get your copy of the book here and spread the word. This tsunami of black racial violence is domestic terrorism. Burying our heads in the sand and ignoring this reality will only put ourselves and the lives of our loved ones in danger.

I refuse to be intimidated and terrorized.  Join me!

Claiming self-defense, black shooter kills unarmed Hispanic

Claiming self-defense, a man, X, shoots another man, Y, dead.

No. This is not yet another rehashing of the Zimmerman fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, although there are important similarities.

You see, like Trayvon Martin, it turns out the victim, Y, was unarmed. Unlike Martin, Y was mentally disabled, with the mental capacity of a 12-year-old.

But in this case, the roles are reversed. The shooter is black; while the victim is part Hispanic.

KSAZ Fox 10 reports from Laveen, Arizona, April 4, 2012, that about 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday night, a man and his girlfriend ordered food at the Taco Bell drive-thru and were told to pull up while their order was prepared.

At the same time, 29-year-0ld Daniel Adkins stepped around a corner into the path of the vehicle and angry words were exchanged between him and the driver. They got into an altercation and Adkins was shot once by the driver. He died at the scene.

The unarmed victim Daniel Adkins

The driver, a 22-year-old black male whose name has not been released, called police.

Adkins’ grieving family members want that driver arrested, but he’s claiming self-defense, saying that Adkins had a metal pipe that he swung at them. But it turns out Adkins was holding a dog leash with his yellow lab on the other end. A metal pipe or bat was never located.

The dog, Lady, stayed by Adkins’ side until the Humane Society came.

According to Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson, an independent witness said Adkins had swung his fists in the driver’s direction: “He swung his fist towards the driver window, and at some point the driver shot him.”

Adkins lived with his mom and dad. He’s 29, but his family says he was mentally disabled with the mental capacity of a 12-year-old. He didn’t drive, and walked wherever he went. His sister Marina Reyes said:

“He [the shooter] needs to be behind bars. I’ll never see my brother again. If he felt that my brother was threatening him, he could have easily just rolled up the window and called the cops. This person is still on the loose and I don’t agree with that. So he’s saying self defense, then where’s the weapon? Where’s the pipe? They didn’t find anything on my brother. He [the shooter] was just too aggressive, you don’t need to go that far.”

But the shooter has not been arrested. Sgt. Thompson said  “Just because we don’t book a person immediately does not mean we don’t charge a person at a later date.”

The investigation is still ongoing.

So how come Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and their willing accomplices in the media aren’t up-in-arms over the killing of an innocent mentally-retarded man? How come we don’t see images of Adkins when he was an angelic 8-year-old and of his hulking shooter splayed all across newspapers and our TV screens? How come the New Black Panthers haven’t put a $10,000 bounty on the shooter’s head?

And why is it that Barack Obama hasn’t said “If I had a son, he’d look just like Daniel Adkins”?

Where’s the outrage?

Wait! I know, I know!

It’s because the victim is not black, but the shooter is black!

Did I get the answer right? [snark]

Media foment a race war over Trayvon shooting

The fatal shooting last February in Sanford, Florida, of a black teenager Trayvon Martin by a half-Hispanic neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, has inflamed racial tensions in the United States.

Blacks across the country demonstrated in outrage and, in North Miami Beach, a mob numbering 80 to 100 used their sense of aggrievedness as an excuse to loot a Walgreens store. Instead of calming racial passions, black politicians and self-appointed spokesmen pour fuel on the flames with incendiary rhetoric, such as Jesse Jackson calling Martin a “martyr” and hysterically proclaiming “blacks are under attack.”

None other than the President of the United States joined in the race hustle by saying that “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Imagine the hue and cry if a white President had said that about a white victim of a black shooting.

Instead of objectively reporting the news as the media are charged to do, mainstream media organs of television and newspaper, are resorting to tricks to make Zimmerman appear a rank racist and Martin an angelic child-victim.

Exhibit A:

NBC and the Dispatcher Call

NBC selectively deleted some of Zimmerman’s words to the 911 dispatcher on the night of the shooting, the effect of which is to make Zimmerman into a racial bigot. NBC’s deception was exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters.

NBC “Today” quoted a key part of the dispatcher call as Zimmerman saying, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black” — which makes Zimmerman appear a racist because he’s equating “looking black” with “looking like he’s up to no good.”

But NBC selectively left out many words Zimmerman had said. This is how the actual conversation went down:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

As pointed out by Erik Wemple in his blog for the Washington Post, March 31, 2012, there’s a vast difference between what NBC “Today” put on its air and the actual tape. In the “Today” version, Zimmerman volunteered that this person “looks black,” a sequence of events that would more readily paint Zimmerman as a racial profiler. In reality’s version, Zimmerman simply answered a question about the race of the person whom he was reporting to the police. Nothing prejudicial at all in responding to such an inquiry.

Exhibit B:

ABC and the Police Tape

Zimmerman told police he had shot Martin in self-defense, after being punched in the nose, knocked down and had his head slammed into the ground by the teen. ABC World News obtained and broadcasted a police surveillance video taken on the night of the shooting, showing a hand-cuffed Zimmerman being brought to the police station. Along with the video was this summary observation by ABC reporter Matt Guttman:

“A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman.”

Thanks to the scrutiny by The Daily Caller, it turns out the surveillance video does show Zimmerman had been injured. This still image from the video shows what appears to be a vertical laceration several inches long on the back of Zimmerman’s head:

Exhibit C:

Misleading with Photos

The media first used this old photo of a smiling Trayvon Martin taken when he was a child, instead of the 6′ 3″ adult-sized young man he was, side-by-side with a photo of a beefy sullen Zimmerman. Reportedly, some versions of this now-iconic photo duo had Zimmerman’s skin a lighter hue to make him look more white and less Hispanic.

Then the media fiddled with a photo of an older Martin in a hoodie to make him appear less negroid (an anthropological term) looking, with lighter skin, smoother complexion, higher forehead, and doe-eyed. The net effect of which is to make Martin appear less threatening and more like a kid.

The image on the left is the original unaltered photo, first published by the Miami Herald on March 22, 2012. The image on the right is the widely-published photo-shopped image that we’ve all seen.

If you think media manipulation of photo images is preposterous, think again. They’ve done it before. Remember this?

Time magazine shamelessly darkened O. J. Simpson’s visage to make him appear more menacing.

Then, more up-t0-date photos of both Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman surfaced. Imagine the public’s reaction if this photo duo had been used when the media first reported the shooting:

It is no wonder that the American people’s trust in the media is at an all-time low. That low reputation is well deserved.

H/t beloved fellows Terry and May
