As the National Media, and Our President Remain Silent...

Liberty -vs- Tyranny

Mathew Owens, brutally beaten lies in a Alabama hospital in ICU fighting for his life. He was beaten by a gang of approximately twenty with pipes, paint cans and chairs. The gang left him on his front porch presumably to die.

Tonight, as I read the sketchy reports of this brutal beating by a gang of approximately twenty I can't help but wonder just where the national mainstream media is hiding. I can't help but ask when Our President, who not too long ago weighed in heavily on a circumstance that resulted in the loss of life, might have some remarks on this incident. Along with words of kindness and support for Mathew Owens family. Perhaps Our President, like NBC, ABC, and others are too busy to be concerned.

It has been reported by a witness that as the gang walked away someone said "Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”

The Daily Caller - Hey, that’s what he gets for having a similar skin color to someone we’ve all been instructed to hate.

Well done, Spike Lee. Nice job, NBC. Keep up the good work, ABC. And to everyone else who’s been using a shooting in Florida to foment hate and divide people by the color of their skin, kudos. Don’t let this attack, and similar attacks across America, bother you. If you had a conscience, we never would’ve heard of you in the first place.

As Thomas Sowell points out, Winston Churchill once said, "If the past sits in judgment on the present, the future will be lost." He wasn't talking about racial issues, but what he said applies especially where race is involved.

I am waiting patiently as well to see exactly how left blogistan reacts to this one. Anybody want to bet?

  1. This poor slob will probably get about as much sympathy from the bleeding-hearts as Reginald Denny got 20 years ago after the King riots. Bubkas, in other words.

  2. I fail to understand why every violent crime has to addressed by the President of the United States. He has better things to do. It's the medias job to sensationalize violent crimes.

    1. I agree Anon. However, if the POTUS felt it appropriate to do so for one should he not do so for all? There is something to be said for consistency.

      The President has put himself in this spot in my mind (and I suspect many others). Now he gets to ride it out. Not that he cares most likely.

  3. RN, the president didn't feel it was "appropriate" to comment on the Trayvon Martin case.

    Mr. Obama WAS SPECIFICALLY ASKED A QUESTION BY A REPORTER during a question and answer period after having given a talk with a visiting head of state!

    All of you who dislike the president conveniently ignore that point.

    Mr. Obama did NOT DELIBERATELY insert himself into the Trayvon Martin discussion, THE MEDIA did! And the reason the Trayvon Martin case is so sensational was because a young, unarmed kid was shot and killed and the perpetrator walked away from the killing with no inquiry to determine if he was justified in shooting the kid.

    Anonymous is correct. It is not any president's job to comment on each and every incident of violence whether it's black on black, white on white, black on white, white on black.

    RN, you appear, from this post, to be accusing Obama of deliberate racism because he didn't make a nationwide comment on this horrible case.

    Do you or anyone truly believe a president has to comment on all violent crime even if a reporter doesn't bring it up? That's all he'd be talking about at his pressers!

    This is just another whine by people on the right to try to prove Mr. Obama is an insensitive racist who cares only for crimes committed against African Americans.

    Can we let up on this nonsense? Because it'S a colossal waste of time.

    1. Shaw, pitifully weak argument.

      Where did I say I dislike the President? Must you liberal make EVERYTHING personal?

      I believe the President should be consistent where and when appropriate. CONSISTENT.

      Whining? LMFAO!! Mirrors Shaw are a useful toll, when used.

    2. He could have said, "No comment."

    1. Yeah, it is likely not even in his vocabulary.
