Unbeatable villains and perpetual despair
What passes for “leadership” in the modern “civil-rights” community has frequently compared the shooting of Trayvon Martin to the brutal murder of black teenager Emmett Till in the 1950s. One of the people who did this is billionaire Oprah Winfrey, fresh from nearly destroying the life of an innocent Swiss shop clerk by falsely accusing her of racism. Asked about Winfrey’s comparison on MSNBC Friday | Read More »
Trayvon mythology and anti-civilization
The “Justice for Trayvon” crowd is perpetuating a number of myths that have nothing to do with the facts of the case, beginning with the fashionable new notion that “justice” was not served at George Zimmerman’s murder trial. On the contrary, the law was bent and warped out of shape to allow that trial to exist at all, leading celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz to say | Read More »
Zimmerman, Martin and The Failed American Melting Pot.
I hope the Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman Fiasco has given The House of Representatives something to think about before they even consider bringing The Gang of Eight Bill to the floor of the House of Representatives for a vote. We should stipulate as an obvious given that the American Melting Pot has recently failed at making our nation more peaceful and prosperous. Like the Late Roman Empire prior to its disaster at Adrianople in AD 378, we assimilate diverse cultures no better than The Emperor Gratian could assimilate the Goths.
Unassimilated minorities in America typically hate the place. They frequently have valid and legitimate gravamen for their hatred. Anyone who looks at the rates at which African-Americans are aborted, shot, fail out of school and wind up either jobless or incarcerated couldn’t be entirely blamed for believing that most of the rest of America is attempting to eject them from our culture the way a white blood cell attacks a hostile bacteria. Absent any back-story, I really can’t blame them for hating my guts as a nameless, faceless White Man on a visceral level. Now quit being shocked. I only differ from the herd by being proudly uncultured enough to state the obvious and unpalatable truth.

Mr. President, Can We Please Move On?
I have said and will say again — the death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. A jury of six in Florida has determined it was not criminal, but George Zimmerman will forever be the man who killed a 17 year old. No one can be happy about what happened other than, for Zimmerman and his family, that a jury believed him. Now the NAACP | Read More »
There is Only Tragedy Here
There is only tragedy in the Zimmerman trial. There are no sides but Justice to root for, but a Justice that will leave one side unsatisfied and still empty. Both sides made mistakes in this awful mess. George Zimmerman may not be guilty of either murder or manslaughter, but he killed Trayvon Martin. A seventeen year old is dead. A family has lost a son. | Read More »
A Self-Inflicted Hubris Shot to the Head
Mike Wallace is dead. Growing up, I’d spend the summer away from Dubai at my grandparents’ home in Louisiana. Sunday nights were back to back Murder She Wrote and 60 Minutes. Many conservatives would accuse Mike Wallace and 60 Minutes of a liberal view point and shading stories to match their world view. Growing up, 60 Minutes was, to me, journalism done right. They asked | Read More »
