Can we get an Attorney General, a protest, or hoodie for this guy?



That was the edited down version of an incident that took place during St. Paddy day in Baltimore. The entire video ends with the guy getting his watch, cash, and car keys ripped off, along with his clothes. But this is a family blog, and the nudity seemed gratuitous. So a very drunk, not particularly bright white guy ends up in downtown B'mo. Clearly this guy is out of his element, an out of towner who was so wasted he doesnt even recall the incident. I'm including these details because I wasn't able to get a picture of him at 12 during his first communion. So I work with what I've got. A drunk white guy in an unfortunate Mt. Dew t shirt, which is what he should have been drinking instead of Jameson and green jello shots. That said, he wasn't breaking any laws, just standing there, swaying, trying to figure out why some strange hood rat was doing the booty grind on him.

He gets clocked, then they swarm on him like a pack of wolves.

Keep that video in your mind, let it play on a continuous loop.

Suppose the video had taken a different twist. Lets say the dude gets knocked ass over tea kettle. just as the crowd swarms him he comes to his senses. Draws a gun. Puts a few of them down. Not down wounded. Down as in done.

Would it have been justified?

What if the victim had been black? His attackers white. do you think that this video would have received more play beyond the local Baltimore stations and the internet?

I've got a point, other than the one atop my bulbous misshapen white dome.  So stick with me and try to keep up. 

There is a vast expanse that divides the two camps in the Trayvon Martin case. On the one side, you have a whole lot of pissed off black folks. Add to this already volatile mix, a generous helping of liberal, white guilt laden apologists. Shake and serve with a sprig of irony. Serve to anyone dumb enough to drink it. The original cry was Justice for Trayvon, and by justice they meant an arrest. Now that Martin has been arrested, there will be a new call for justice. Justice this time will mean a conviction of 2nd degree murder. Anything less, and there will be hell to pay. The media will continue to do it's best to misrepresent, misinform, and polarize.

On the other side of the expanse, you have a group of white folks who are scratching their heads, wondering why THIS case is so important, so egregious that the Attorney General of the United States has not only weighed in, but is actively steering it. Holder recently spoke in front of a group founded by Al Sharpton. He promised the audience the feds would pursue charges if at all possible. I'm paraphrasing, but that was the gist of it. Why the AG would be speaking or associated with anything related to Al is as perplexing and disturbing as any element in the Trayvon/Zimmerman case. The President has added fuel to the fire. He stuck his nose into the Police vs. Gates debacle. Called the cop stupid, sided with Gates. Then along comes this most recent mess. Obama does not disappoint. He says if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. His imaginary son might also look like the hoods in the video above. The stunner is why  the AG or the President feel the need to comment on  the case, yet have remained mute about the bounty and dead or alive comments from the new and improved Black Panthers.  Neither Holder nor Obama have bothered to comment or take action regarding the racially motivated crimes like Knockout King or Polar Bear hunting. They have not commented, at least not that I recall, on the inordinate number of crimes committed by and against a small minority of this nation.

Nothing in the Trayvon Martin case passes the smell test, which is not to say that Trayvon deserved to die, or that Zimmerman was or was not justified in the shooting. The problem is that the media has spoon fed and misinformed. They edited a tape on MSNBC to make Zimmerman appear to be focusing on Trayvons race. They still continue to post Trayvons photo from several years passed. A smiling young boy from the past, not the 6ft plus young black man who tweeted under the moniker of no limit nigga.

There won't be any clear cut, untainted justice in this case. The die has been cast.  any juror who finds Zimmerman Not Guilty will be subjected to public outrage, maybe a bounty, maybe death threats, maybe more than threats. The very same people who claim they only sought an arrest, justice, will be in that courtroom, outside the courtroom,  protesting/marching, pissing and moaning. They will force a guilty verdict. Should Zimmerman manage to be found not guilty, Holder, the Potus, and the justice dept. will come after Zimmerman for violating Trayvons civil rights. This case ends badly for Zimmerman, guilty or not. It also ends badly for this country, guilty or not. We are miles apart, the distance growing greater with the selective outrage over a single killing, while ignoring the ongoing killing and violence perpetrated on a daily basis by young black males that would look just like our Presidents son, if he had one.

    What happened in Florida? Only two people know and one is dead. But everybody who wasn't there is ready to beat down or beatify the shooter.

    The media put up old pictures of the two and it sure wasn't an oops moment. The capped-teeth-and-hairdo bunch had the case solved before the commercial break.

    The Florida Stand Your Ground law is pretty obtuse. On principle it sounds like common sense. Why does a victim have to give ground to someone they "know" is out to harm them? But the unintended consequences show up with a lot of questionable shootings. A cop shoots his wife during a divorce, in her house and that is that as far as the law is concerned.

    I have no idea what happened. My lil' mind says when a police official advises you not to follow someone, it is probably a good idea to back off.

    When Sharpton gets involved, that means folks are looking for a big payout.

    It is an ugly situation and there are plenty of people lining up to make a score on it.

    Something doesn't smell right about the whole incident. Fresh air and sunshine cure most ills but it looks like smog and rain for the future.

  3. Was it just me or was the Special Prosecutor acting nothing short of gleeful during her announcement of the murder charge?

    You're right ... things don't add up but who to believe? You sure can't believe the media and there's a zip on the evidence, so guess we'll have to wait for another Casey Anthony circus trial.

    One thing is clear though and that is Sharpton and Jackson have found a way to pay their outstanding bills aided and abetted by the administration of Eric Holder who I truly believe hates white people.

  4. Dear MM: Thanks for this posting!! To Al Sharpton Zimmerman's guilt or innocence is as irrelevant as Leo Frank's guilt or innocence was to the Georgia demagogue Tom Watson who incited his lynching in 1915. This is simply a convenient issue on which to inflame public opinion. One thing people in the KC-area should keep in the back of their minds: Black on black violence in KCMO has surged since the Police Board meeting of April 11, 2008 on the Salva tragedy--afer that meeting every cop in the KCPD knew that the idea of "due process" did not extent to white cops accused of racism--out of sheer self-survival, the cops abandoned serious efforts to fight black on black crime in KCMO's black neighborhoods. Now, the stakes have been raised for the men and women of the KCPD--next time you will be lucky if all that happens to you is dismissal--you may be brought up on civil rights charges--and your chances of getting a fair trial are about as good as George Zimmerman's. What the Sharptons of the nation may have done is set off a further escalation of black-on-black violence in KCMO. Take care--pray for the Republic. Sincerely, Respectfully and In Christ, Ernest Evans

  6. For me, in my opinion and in my experience, that video from Baltimore (By the way, there are 2 videos and they are found on line if you want to see the whole thing from two different angles.), is the personification of Black malevolence toward whites, that has been understated and dismissed by the 4th estate and our politicians for 30 years.

    You don't have to work very hard to find US Dept of Justice and FBI stats which show a level of Black on White violence so galactically dissproportionate to the per capita population that a newcomer from Mars would think indeed, that war had been declared on a White population, too cowardly or unable to defend itself.

    Keep in mind, when you see the stats, that the US Dept of Justice and the FBI lumps Latinos in with Caucasions for the express purpose of mitigating the horrific facts.

    Black on White rape is 565 to 1. Murder is 50 to 1. That is just the tip of the iceberg. This in no way, reflects the unreported, rapes, assaults and the intimidation that accompanies the African American sub culture.

    Eric "My People" Holder, racist hater of all things Judeo/Christian/European has said that it is impossible to have a Black on White hate crime.

    http://araceagainsttime.blogspot.com/2009/06/attorney-general-holder-whites-not.html

    I agree with everything that Mark has stated here, and, in my opinion, there is no solution to the incessant attacks on whites by blacks.

    The police will not only look away, they will arrest and prosecute you for resistance unless there is a video or more than 2 witnesses (G Zimmerman.) Politicians, pusillanimous by nature, are cowed and diminished by the voices of the "protected class" and the threat of civil unrest. The Media, is a full on participant in the destruction of all things Judeo/Christian/European.

    Seriously, do any of you think that the thugs in that video knew each other? Some maybe, but it is like we walk amongst an army, with orders to maim and kill, who are know by the color of their skin and act accordingly.

    Black people don't need a plan, they just need to be present, recognize the odds and attack.

    I realize that there are exceptions to the rule and we should not judge all black people the same.

    Then again, why take the chance?

    White folks will continue to flee, cower and shrink from Black violence. They will move to beter neigborhoods, go to better schools and find a way to avoid Blacks. Many whites will participate in this migration, while wering "I Am Trayvon" T Shirts.

    The fact is, me personally, I respect Black violence, intimidation and intent. You would be stupid not too.

    Each of us now, in our own way, must find a way to keep our families and our friends safe and clear of that African American bedrock of hate, that will, if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, kill you.

    Neighborhood watches, are no longer part of that equation.

    Good luck, your on your own.

  7. By the way, there are so amny videos (You Tube will take a lot of them down, but you can still find plenty.) of whites being beaten by blacks, on busses, at sports events, in fast food restaurants EVERYWHERE that I wouldnt want anyone to think that this video is an anomaly.

    The tens of thousands of attacks that take place every year in America are a disgusting and disgraceful example of what this country has become.

  8. At some point in time, George Zimmerman will end up in prison, and then, eventually, in general population.

    He will be a dead man.

  9. I agree he ends up in the can, regardless of the evidence or lack there of. But he never makes it to general population. Probably does his time somewhere other than florida. Frankly, after a few years in administrative seg, he will long to take his chances in gen pop. 23 hour lockdown will mess your head up after a few years.

  10. Mark,

    This is probably the best piece you've written in some time. Good to have you back on your game.

  11. I am pretty sure this will get railroaded, but I wonder how does that justice by protest thing works. If they have enough people who want a person arrested, will that work in every case?

  12. Zimmerman won't have a problem inside. Whatever clique' is calling it for the latinos in the joint he ends up in will claim him as a hero, and he will have shower shoes and coffee wating on his bunk when he gets his cell assignment.

    Face the facts, People...not only is the Zimmerman/Martin mess gonna end badly, the entire Black/White thang is getting ready to go. And guess what? All those doofus' in L.L.Bean shoes n Dockers? They've all been buying weapons and ammunition for years. It's gonna be a real party this time.

    MM, glad you kicked out of some of that White guilt trip, but you know, you're an evil racist now!!!

  13. Miscreant,

    Thanks for noticing just a little of what's been going on for years now. Black on White violence has seemed to escalate after Barry was elected to office.

    Someone said that there isn't a solution but I think there is a solution or solutions. For starters, the brain washed mass of sheep that make up a lot of our White population need to wake up and smell the Hate and Rage wafting towards them and Drop White Guilt. Also, I understand that any White person who defends their loved ones or themselves will be crucified like Christ if caught or charged but for awhile that might be what some of us have to do...here's a thought though if you do have to defend and can make a break for it then do it. Don't be there when the police come. They wouldn't protect you anyhow, they'd only be there to draw an outline on your body or the body of the you loved. We need to stand up and say no more. This Black on White Violence happens because too many of us Allow it to and are now scared to even stand up for ourselves. Time to Raise the Bullshit Flag people. Ha, once our people were warriors too Celts, Vikings, Roman's Stand UP!
