Leftist collectivism fulfills the dreams of the segregationists

Over at Just One Minute, Tom takes a look at a couple of articles on the Zimmerman trial, and finds an astonishing admission from a black pastor.

If you’ve been paying attention to the trial, you know that it’s almost over, and every observer with a shred of objectivity thinks Zimmerman will get a “not guilty” verdict.

Problem is, the local black community was convinced from the beginning that Zimmerman was guilty. The media led them right to that conclusion with misleading reporting. For at least one outlet, NBC, it went beyond misleading into outright fraud.

Naturally, those craven journalists will never take responsibility and set the record straight. They even continue to fan the flames with race-baiting articles like the one Tom cites from the New York Times, which included this quote:

Mr. Oliver, the Sanford pastor, said he remained optimistic. “You can feel a little sense that anger is re-emerging,” he said.

You don’t have to be a trained sociologist* to know what that means – possible civil violence, maybe on the scale of the Rodney King riots.

Why anger? Isn’t an innocent man walking free a good thing? Ah, but we’re back to the world of post-modern narrative. Truth doesn’t matter, only narrative matters, and narrative doesn’t have to have any relationship to truth. In the black community, the dominant narrative is that Zimmerman is guilty. As that race-baiting article put it:

Still, black pastors, sociologists and community leaders said in interviews that they feared that Mr. Martin’s death would be a story of justice denied, an all-too common insult that to them places Trayvon Martin’s name next to those of Rodney King, Amadou Diallo and other black men who were abused, beaten or killed by police officers.

That paragraph only makes any sort of logical sense if you assume from the outset that Trayvon is innocent and Zimmerman is guilty.

Out in the real world, where people are watching the trial, there is a dawning realization that the media got it wrong in the first place, and Zimmerman deserves acquittal. Some of us actually went beyond the fraudulent reporting of the major media and realized that months ago.

But the local black community, and others like it across the nation, sounds like it is not prepared to accept that message. They’ve been told for too long how they are victims and Trayvon is just another one.

Despicable race baiters such as the author of that New York Times article, and the sociologist quoted in it, carefully nurture that attitude. Local leaders pick up the tune, amplifying it. The local educational system, mostly dominated by left-leaning teachers unions, reinforces it while simultaneously ensuring that the locals are handicapped in trying to ever break out of that cultural matrix.

The end result is a community culturally isolated from its larger society. It’s members reinforce each others prejudices, and nurture old grievances. They find themselves unsuited for life outside their local community, because they lack the education to fit in anywhere else. This becomes yet more evidence that the outside world has it in for them.

Thus is fulfilled the dreams of the southern white segregationists. Blacks are encouraged to stay in their own culturally isolated communities.** They are encouraged to believe they are somehow different and cannot mix with outside communities. Their poor education marks them as second class citizens.

Who would have thought that government dependence programs, corrupt Democratic city politicians, and a biased leftist media would accomplish what the white segregationists could not?

For me, it’s one more reason to despise the American left. I hate what they have done to my fellow citizens. I despair when I realize that a typical inner-city resident has no reasonable hope of social mobility, and is stuck in a cycle of government dependence, generation after generation. I shake my head at the nonsense peddled to them by the left and by the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Barack Obama.

I hate that one of the more likely outcomes of the Zimmerman trial is that, like the Rodney King affair, black neighborhoods will end up getting torched and looted – by blacks.***

Hey, New York Times and all your “compassionate” leftist race-baiters – does this make you happy?

 

* Like the race-baiting one in the article, who complained that the non-credible, borderline illiterate star witness for the state was “mammyfied”.

** As one of the effects, just look at how many wealthy suburbs of major American cities are lily-white.

*** I hope it doesn’t happen, and my incurable optimism says maybe the evidence is so clear in this trial that it won’t. But lately, my pessimistic side has a better track record than my optimistic side.

  • Making the Black community “victims” is the ultimate “DIS”

  • “does this make you happy?”
     
    Yep, it’s what they are after – Front page news and a drum to beat about inequal societies that must change to fit their view how the country SHOULD be.  Keeps the ‘majority’ from voting for racist conservatives and refusal to redistribute their wealth according to the diktats of brie and wine set at the NYT (whose wealth is probably off limits in these plans).

  • Remember the implications of “Critical Race Theory”.
    We can NEVER be one American people.  EVER.  It is GRINDINGLY segregationist.  It also implies racial superiority.
    I personally spit on that.

  • I am sick to the back of my teeth hearing about Rodney King.
    All one has to do is take a look at the complete video and what you see a very large, very intoxicated, very much out-of-control man violently confronting several police who were rightfully arresting him for DUI.
    When I first witnessed the scene in it’s entirety, I was astounded that this was even a controversy. Rodney had to have been high as a kite; he picked a fight he was never going win. Cops are obligated to get drivers who represent a clear and present danger to the motoring public off the roads. Race doesn’t enter into that equation.
    As a nation, if we can’t get beyond acknowledging right and wrong, what’s left is anarchy. That fact alone makes me think that just might be the goal for some.

    • Every officer involved in that chase had had King offer to kill them, too.  You don’t engage in a high-speed chase…in any role…without having your animal brain telling you that you are in danger.
      I guarantee you those cops…and LA cops are notoriously thinly stretched…would have beaten the dogsnot out of me, too.
      I had a friend in WOFT who was a CHP officer in real life (he was taking pilot training as a reservist) who told me that for a time, ALL LEOs in the LA area were making “open holster” (guns drawn) traffic stops.  Cops often work scared.

  • “southern white segregationists”

    Also known as, Democrats. Is should be noted the South isn’t anything like what it was when Democrats ran the governments for the first 70 years of the 20th century. See, “Bull” Conner, George Wallace, et al.

    I found the inherent racism of the media to be on display when so many jumped to the conclusion that Jentel’s inability to read cursive as indicative of her being illiterate. Sorry, but I’d bet there are a lot of 18-19 yr olds who can’t read cursive these day. It’s not like they get a lot of practice. Even notes in school are now texts.

    • I haven’t used cursive except for my signature for well over 35 years.   And if you saw the way some people WRITE cursive….it would have been interesting to see the snap shot of that letter to see how many of the rest of us could read it.
       
      I didn’t think Jeantel’s inability to read that had anything to do with her color, it had to do with her and the system that mis-educated her to the lowest possible standard.
       
      Yeah, I know, the apologists are trying to tell us she IS her color….and my failure to take her color into consideration is what makes me a RACIST!!!!!!!   Asshats.

      • The first day of college I wrote my notes in cursive.  When I looked at them that evening I couldn’t read them.
        I then printed all my college notes.  I had to learn how to print quickly, but it was all printing.

        SO I have to ask .. what does this say about my racial being ?

  • This just in:
    http://pjmedia.com/blog/disorder-judge-recesses-zimmerman-trial-excludes-damning-evidence/
    Ya’ know, except in rare exceptions, it used to be the thugs were the defendents, not the judges, prosecutors, DOJ, White House.

  • I hate that one of the more likely outcomes of the Zimmerman trial is that, like the Rodney King affair, black neighborhoods will end up getting torched and looted – by blacks.**

    >>>> I’m not sure why. It sure beats them ruining someone elses’ neighborhood. Anyone who wants to foul their own nest, I always 100% enthusiastically encourage it. Keep that idiocy away from people who actually care.

    But in answer to your question – OF COURSE it makes the NYT and their fellow travelers happy. It fills several story buckets:
    – Blacks as victims (albeit to “white hispanics” whatever that is)
    – Blacks as powerless children acting out – self control and responsibility aren’t expected from them
    – Obama will get a chance to make a speech and play peacemaker
    – Another chance to rail against gun laws, stand your ground laws and bash the GOP in general.

    I’ll simply note that if Obama had a son, he’d look a lot like most of the rioters.

  • So not only do they want to railroad an innocent man into jail to prove this is racist America, they want riots to help create a crisis that must be solved.  Either way if he was guilty, proof of racist America, if he walks, proof of racist America.
     
    ‘Racist’ is the new ‘Witch’ from the 1600’s.  Truth doesn’t matter.  Guilty until proven innocent and since racism is a motivation or a thought you can never prove your innocence.  At least when they tied you up, weighted you down, and you drowned as a test if you were a witch, you were exonerated posthumously. 

  • Why anger? Isn’t an innocent man walking free a good thing? Ah, but we’re back to the world of post-modern narrative. Truth doesn’t matter, only narrative matters, and narrative doesn’t have to have any relationship to truth. In the black community, the dominant narrative is that Zimmerman is guilty. As that race-baiting article put it:

     
    This reminds me of the analogy of a shame based society and a guilt based society.  Except that was too narrow a definition.  Its a society where you have truth by consensus vs. truth by reason.  And the Democrats and Friends want a world that goes by ‘truth by consensus’.  Because they control the majority of the media still.
     
    But now we’re entering a new era.  One that by a technological twist of events have put many Conservative or Libertarian messages at a far larger disadvantage.  Social media.  Cons & Libs on average don’t like communicating via social media.  The moderates, leftists, and the younger generation can’t get enough.  Its just how you’re wired.  20 years ago when I entered my first AOL chat room to see what the fuss was about, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough and never went back.  Twitter to me is just like those chat rooms.  Now some Cons. & Libs. are fine with social media, but I’ll say those are likely people who have job related uses for those media that first drew them into it.  The average C&L isn’t in that situation.  And I don’t think you can expect people to invade a space they’re wired against.
     
    So the Propagandist Left is poised to just completely dominate that space and hijack an entire generation via the appearance of consensus and a cultural change for us to go by ‘truth by consensus’.  And trust me, I say appearance of consensus because the space can be manipulated without much evidence that it is being manipulated.   Its why they can’t get iPads and smartphones into the hands of children fast enough.  Usually the Left is technophobic.  And usually you’d get warnings similar to ‘too much TV’.  ‘kids need to step away from the TV & Computers and get exercise’., etc.  You don’t get those types of warnings about tablet/smartphones anymore.  Even though people are such drawn into them they’ll walk straight into fountains.  What you get are programs trying to give every kid a smartphone or tablet.  Its because its a propaganda channel right into the brains of the young from the fact that liberals control the social media space.
     
     

  • let the media reap what they sow. riots will be good. if our system is corrupt as you say it is then it is natural to burn it down.

  • For me, it’s one more reason to despise the American left. I hate what they have done to my fellow citizens. I despair when I realize that a typical inner-city resident has no reasonable hope of social mobility, and is stuck in a cycle of government dependence, generation after generation.

    Interesting, isn’t it, this blatant primitive tribalism?
    So hilarious that the left calls themselves “progressive”, when in fact they are a throwback to a culture that existed 5,000 years ago. Same with the environazis and their desires to go “Back to the Pleistocene”.
    Well, they want US to live in caves; they’ll keep their Carmel mansions and Gulfstreams.

    • Well, they want US to live in caves; they’ll keep their Carmel mansions and Gulfstreams.

      Yes, but it’s for our own good. We’ll be happier there in the caves; they are sure of it.
      They’ve already explained to us that we just have too many choices, so many that they are making us unhappy. It is for our own good that they want to take our choices away.

      As for their mansions and planes, you don’t expect them to do the hard work of lording over us and determining our choices from a cave do you? Their work is much too important for that. They need the finer things in the life to reward them for all that hard work bossing the rest of us around.
