First, not every white on black crime or black on white crime … is a hate crime, but this Administration has raised the rhetoric to put that term into play. (Keep in mind there are other races, cultures, genders and sexual preference crimes that also fall into this discussion.)
The President played the “race card” by linking himself to Trayvon Martin and made the whole focus of the Zimmerman case — a hate crime … with the prodding and pushing of black activists and Liberal media. The tsunami surged forward as Attorney General Holder started a special investigation involving the FBI.
All of this promoting “hate crime” when Zimmerman wasn’t even white — but to make him fit the profile, his ethnic background was reclassified as White-Hispanic.
So now, we have an 89 year old WW II veteran beaten by two teenagers in Spokane, Washington.
Delbert Belton was white,
Surveillance photos of the suspects show young African American males … ages 16-19.
Mr. Belton, known as Shorty by his friends, served in the Army and was shot in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa. He could have died on a foreign battlefield for the freedom and rights of his attackers, but instead, he died in an America street under their fists and feet.
At this time, police have no motive and are calling this: a random attack.
I’m not second guessing police on this story because they have more facts — but I want to drive home this point: If two white teens had beaten a black Veteran to death … Sharpton, Jackson and the rest of the mob would have been on the streets of Seattle within hours.
For now, let’s accept this is “random” … not a “hate crime”.
Now consider the recent Oklahoma killing of Australian student Chris Lane.
Another “random” crime?
Lane was white; two of the teenage suspects are black and one is white.
Police say the suspects admit they were bored and killed Lane just for the excitement and to “watch someone die”.
How about the Twitter account linked to one of the black suspects.
It is filled with graphic language about killing, smoking and hating white people.
In one post, the suspect claims he “knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court.” The word “woods” is also a derogatory term used to describe white people
Clearly, those attacks were a direct response to the Zimmerman verdict — which would make them “hate crimes”.
In another tweet, the suspect wrote: “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATETHEM.”
Those claims and those words say one thing: Lane was not just a random target — he was a victim of a hate crime.
There will be those who insist it was a random crime … that Lane was in the wrong place at the wrong time. They might say if Lane had been black the same thing could have happened.
Some can make that argument, and while at this time, neither of us has definitive proof — I want them to consider this point.
As much as many tried to paint the Zimmerman case as a “hate crime” … there was nothing in his background to support that theory.
What if … what if … Zimmerman had been posting Tweets like: 90% of black ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM?
Those words would have been added to every news story and Jackson/Sharpton and their mob would have been screaming those words as “evidence” of a hate crime.
So in this case, I expect …
No. I DEMAND that Jackson/Sharpton and the mob go to Oklahoma and protest and demand justice for Chris Lane and call this a “hate crime”.
I DEMAND that Jackson/Sharpton and the mob go to Seattle and protest and demand justice for Delbert Belton and call his death a “hate crime”.
Jackson/Sharpton and the mob …won’t do either.
The cases don’t fit their agenda.
They will wait for the next case where a black is killed by a white — and then rush in with their voices and cameras … proclaiming “hate crime”.
One other thing I demand … is that the man who truly escalated the Trayvon Martin case to a perceived “hate crime” … speak out.
I demand that President Obama speak up for Lane and Belton and damn the “hate crime” against them.
It won’t happen.
President Obama has nothing in common and likeness with these victims.
As Obama said, “You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said this could have been my son. Another way of saying this is, Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago.”
The President won’t see himself as a war veteran. The President won’t see himself as a college student just out for some exercise.
No, President Obama sees no commonality, no purpose to be served by getting involved in these cases.
But I will say … President Obama’s silence … is deafening.
