The Political Class + Media Are Geniuses In Manipulating And Exploiting Useful Idiots

"Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize, half of them are stupider than that."  The late George Carlin

  • As Eric Holder ponders whether his Justice Department will pursue federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, he said nothing about whether his department will pursue civil rights actions against all of the people threatening Zimmerman's life and the lives of his family members.
  • And that gets to my point. While all those protesters march against the Zimmerman verdict (as they have every right to do), they don't even realize they are being played by the likes of Holder, Sharpton and many in the media.
  • Just as disturbing, many of these people don't even understand why they are protesting.
  • I never directly wrote about the trial because I wasn't at the trial. I wasn't with Zimmerman and Travon when their altercation took place. Yet, many of these knuckleheads presume they know what happened at the trial and at the scene of the tragedy.

  • Many of these very same people actually believe what the likes of Al Sharpton is telling them. This from a guy that ran the Tawana Brawley hoax. This from a thug who has a long history of inflaming racial tensions and violence. As Stuart Stevens of the Daily Beast wrote recently: "Sharpton is hardly alone in having spent decades in vomiting hate." This is the same guy who Pres. Obama invited to the White House to talk about taxing the rich more while Sharpton himself owed millions in back taxes (NY Post +NBC News). This is the same guy a Memphis hotel reported Sharpton failed to pay an $88,000 hotel bill for a convention he hosted there (Village Voice).
  • So forgive me when I can't take all of this nonsense seriously certainly not as thousands of African Americans are murdered each year and these so-called civil rights protesters say or do nothing about it. Just last year, the NYPD reported 97% of shooters in NY were black or Hispanic as were 96% of its shooting victims.
  • And remember the "Million Man March" in 1995? That too was a march about civil rights and focused on the issues facing black America. Well, since that March, over 140,000 African Americans have been murdered---mostly by other African-Americans. In fact, in America, murder is the leading cause of death of African-American males ages 15-34 (FBI).

  • While there were 72 shootings and 12 fatalities in Chicago over this past July 4th weekend, I challenge Sharpton and his fellow protesters whether they even know the name of one of the black victims. One of the only reasons we know Travon's name now is because the media wants us to know his name, and the president interjected himself into the incident.
  • As Thomas Sowell, a very well respected black journalist, wrote this week: "You don't send people to prison on the basis of what other people imagine."
  • When some of these misguided protesters claim Travon was a victim of a lynching, it's actually the opposite. Zimmerman is now a potential victim of a lynching by the useful idiots led by Sharpton, the media and their enablers.
  • While I'm not equating Zimmerman with Jesus in any way, shape or form, I do recall similar protests 2000 years ago when many shouted, "Crucify Him!" Jesus was an innocent man and so is George Zimmerman.
