At the end of February, two 16-year-old black boys followed a 13-year-old white Allen Coon as he walked home from his Kansas City, Missouri, school.
When Allen reached his house, one of the black boys grabbed him and pinned his arms behind his back while the other poured gasoline on him and set him on fire, saying,
“This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.”
Thankfully, Allen had the presence of mind to pull his shirt up over his head and snuff out the flames.
Police say they are investigating if this might be a hate crime.
Riiiiiiiiiiiight. This “might” be a hate crime … and the media might be reporting this as fairly and accurately as they are reporting the Trayvon Martin killing.
Even the local Kansas City news that reported the incident only selectively reported the racial elements:
- Fox4KC left out any mention of race in the boys’ descriptions, inexplicably leaving the “white boy” part off the assailant’s quote.
- KCTV5 reported the races of the three boys, but also inexplicably left the “white boy” part off the assailant’s quote.
- KMBC reported the entire threat, but never mentioned the races of either the victim or his assailants.
This bias is nothing new. Still, it needs to be pointed out every time it happens. And it especially needs to be pointed out this week as the Laughing Stock Media and the race-baiting Democrat machine froth over the killing of Trayvon Martin.
Reverse the colors on the Allen Coon assault.
Can you imagine the hue and cry if two 16-year-old white boys set a innocent 13-year-old black child alight while saying,
“You get what you deserve, black boy”?
The story wouldn’t be reported in bits and pieces in one city’s media, but coast-to-coast in neon.
Al Sharpton would be glowing in the dark with delight at the chance to once again cast Whitey as EEEEEEEEEEEVIL.
And Democrat politicians and talking heads would be pulling chins, shaking heads, and wagging fingers over how it was all the RAAAAAAACIST Tea Party’s fault.
The articles below are all very well worth reading. I hope you’ll take the time.

Afterburner with Bill Whittle: Merchants of Despair [7:20]
Watch this. Then pass it on. Please.
Media Matters claims it is dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the media.
But they don’t stop at fact checking. They work at trying to silence conservative news and talk outlets altogether.
They recently organized professional activists to punish businesses that advertise on The Rush Limbaugh Show.
These people tied up phone lines and bombarded websites, Facebook pages and Twitter accounts to try and keep real customers from getting through.
Mark Stevens appeared on the Fox Business Channel on Varney & Co. to describe how he’s being targeted by Media Matters for America and related groups for advertising on Rush Limbaugh’s show.
He said that this is not a boycott. It’s terrorism. It’s a small number of people trying to make themselves sound like a large number of angry customers who are never going to patronize the business again. But they’re not. They’re Democrat operatives.
Stevens reported he received 40,000 e-mails about his decision to continue advertising his business on Rush’s show. Thirty-eight thousand of them were supportive. Two thousand were critical.
RUSH: “You ever notice, folks, when a conservative does not like a talk show, they change the channel. They don’t watch. That’s why these left-wing networks don’t have much audience. But when a leftist doesn’t like a talk show, they scream, “Racism, elitism, bigotry, homophobia,” and then they start demanding censorship. That’s exactly who they are and what they do.”

Rush Limbaugh: Media Matters is Like Jock Itch – March 26, 2012
If you’re looking for bias, you don’t need to travel far into Media Matters background. They are supported by progressives connected to the Democratic Party, including Hillary Clinton, George Soros, MoveOn.org, the New Democrat Network, and the Center for American Progress.

Why are we even bothering with a legal system? The Left Stream Media seems to think it’s quite capable of sifting the evidence and convicting criminals all by itself. After all, they picked our current president for us and we all know how well that’s working out.
