“Justice For Trayvon”: A Man Clings To Life in Alabama After Savage Beating By Black Mob Armed With Chairs, Pipes and Paint Cans

Are we seeing the beginnings of a race war?

Via Gateway Pundit:

WKRG reported:

Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he’s in critical condition.

According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.

Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.

As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said “Now thats justice for Trayvon.” Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Samford, Florida.

All of the local news broadcasts neglected to mention the racial component to the beating:

CBS 5 described the assailants as “a group of men”.

Local 15 described them simply as “multiple attackers”, but mentioned that “racial comments may have played a role” in the beating.

Fox 10 described the mob as “an unknown number of people”.

Remember how the MSM jumped at the opportunity to characterize Zimmerman as “white”, and then a “white Hispanic”?

At AoSHQ, Ace notes that this is the  third racially-motivated attack in which the attackers explicitly cited “Justice for Trayvon” as a motivation or excuse for the brutal attacks.

It’s also the latest in a series of horrifying black mob attacks on whites that have been occurring for the last few years.

Ace wonders:

Is Obama going to say anything? Call at least one of the victims? Attempt to bring calm? Attempt a “Sister Souljah” moment (which could actually benefit him politically) and call out violent black racists?

I don’t see it, but if he did – there would be some major caveat that would play into the left-wing racialist narrative – you can bank on that.

Video: Stop Pointing Fingers

Bankrupting America, a project of Public Notice, has released a new video showing the continued dysfunction in Washington.  The video is a call to action for Americans to get involved by calling their Senator urging them to ‘stop pointing fingers and do their job’.


FACT SHEET: The Budget Games:

The Last Passed Budget Resolution

The last time Congress completed the budget process was on April 29, 20091.

  • The House passed the conference report for the budget on April 29, 2009, by a vote of 233 – 1932.
  • The Senate passed the conference report for the budget on April 29, 2009, by a vote of 53 – 433.

Economic Snapshot

Today, 5.3 million Americans have spent over 27 weeks looking for work.4 Additionally, since President Obama took office in 2009, the public debt has increased nearly 45% as of this date, it has increased 47 percent to be exact.  (To be clear, we rounded down to 45 percent in the video.)5.

Yesterday, Bankrupting America  launched a  hashtag campaign calling on the Senate to pass a budget. The hashtag: #DuringTheLastBudget is  used to identify items or events that did not exist when the last budget was passed. Below are a few examples:

#DuringTheLastBudget

- The iPad had not been invented

- Bruno Mars had never released an album

- No one had ever heard of Rebecca Black

- Charlie Sheen was still on Two and a Half Men

We all know, the MSM will not hold their feet to the fire – it’s up to every day Americans to to get involved. If you have a Democrat Senator, call him/her and and demand an explanation.

Earth Day 2012 Fizzles — Badly

In what should be seen as a hopeful sign that global warming/climate change hysteria in the United States has finally, mercifully, all but petered out, none but the most die hard Gaia- worshippers convened on the National Mall, Sunday, for the big Earth Day festivities.  Organizers reportedly had expected “tens of thousands”, but in reality the event attracted only – tens.

Newsbusters reported:

Monday’s Washington Post gave the badly-attended Earth Day rally on Sunday a whitewash on the front page of the Metro section. “Earth Day stands up to the rain,” was the headline, as reporter Tara Bahrampour said rain “didn’t stop the die-hards.” Online, the headline was funnier: “Rains don’t water down Earth Day enthusiasm.” The Post offered no attempts at a numerical estimate.

But at Examiner.com, ‘DC Green Business Examiner” Douglas Canter was more straightforward: “Earth Day Networks, which sponsored the event, expected tens of thousands of people. By midafternoon, about 40 people, including [Frisbee-throwers] Nick, Antonio, and a CNN crew, hovered near the stage awaiting the remainder of a long list of scheduled speakers and bands, including the Reverend Jesse Jackson and R&B singer Ledisi.”

He added: “About 50 yards away, several hundred people walked on the muddy grass and stopped under about 20 partially covered exhibits. Many were operated by companies that promoted their products.”

So let’s review: Earth Day organizers expected “tens of thousands” and drew 40. It received a large color photo (mother with child, avoid the “crowd” shot) and a front-page Metro story. In January, the March for Life turned out tens of thousands and it received two large color photos (one of an opponent) — one of and a front-page Metro story (and avoided a crowd shot). Post ombudsman Patrick Pexton nudged this quote from Post local editor Vernon Loeb: “In retrospect I wish we had given readers a better sense of the overall magnitude of the march. . .it was far larger than 17,000.”

Actually,  it was nearly 500,000.

The March for Life is always massive – and it’s always massively ignored by the MSM.

As Newsbusters reported, CNN barely Covered the March for Life, but hyped the much smaller Earth Day rally…

CNN prides itself on being a serious news network, but it submitted itself to being a simple megaphone for the Earth Day organizers. Correspondent Josh Levs admitted as much after airing a YouTube video that laid out the goals for the Earth Day movement.

“We have really stunning images to help you understand the extent to which the world has changed. So we want you all to know all about this. The kinds of things that they’re calling for on Earth Day, the kinds of things that are going on out there, and what the events are,” said Levs, who also directed the audience to links about the day on Facebook and Twitter.

One of the goals laid out by the movement, that CNN relayed to its cable news audience, was “trying to build a green economy and getting more green policies up there.” Such a goal could be considered a political agenda, but CNN had no problem carrying water for the movement.

“Earth Day 2012 activists want to pressure world leaders to address pressing issues like endangered wildlife, Arctic melting and air pollution,” noted anchor Don Lemon later on during the 6 p.m. hour.

Even with nodding approval and encouragement from the MSM, Earth Day Failed abysmally.

You get the full gist of how badly it failed from the Green-friendly blog, Freetaste: Celebrating Earth Day 2012 in Washington D.C. (photos) where you can view pic after pic of tens ones of people “mobilizing” to “save the earth” by building a “green economy”, etc. etc…

Always popular with environmental types, Captain Planet would have been a “crowd pleaser” if there had been a crowd.

Tents were set up but hardly anyone  was around to check out the Green wares inside.

“The wet weather may have discouraged people to attend,” the blogger speculates.

“A band performs despite the small turn out of audience at the National Mall,” he reports.

“Earth Day celebrants braved the cold and wet weather.”

Okay, ENOUGH. It’s APRIL. How cold can it be? If Pro-lifers can get hundreds of thousands year after year in January, what does it tell you about the excitement and dedication of enviros to their cause, that hardly anyone showed up for what was supposed to be a massive rally, because of a little rain. “April showers” are not wholly unexpected events, you know.

One Saturday, last April, in fact, I had the opportunity to tour DC with my oldest daughter, and guess what – it was raining cats and dogs for the whole day. Did that stop us? No, it did not. We just put on our rain coats and toured the Capitol in the rain – and had fun doing it.

Feb of ’09 saw the birth of a new conservative, grass roots movement in US politics – the Tea Party. It was in its infancy all across America.

In Kansas City, we held our very first tea party in a snow storm. The weather could not have been worse – really. And because we were conservatives, we’d never protested anything in our lives… but we believed in what we were doing.

I’ll never forget this grim faced girl:

History has proven us to be right. The Dems’ massive Stimulus did nothing to improve the economy, Obama’s spending on one boondoggle after another has been a disaster for this country. His “investments” in green energy  have been particularly egregious.

With  increasing numbers of people finally becoming aware of the Malthusian and Socialistic  nature of Climate Change fraud, coupled with Obama’s  massive Green Energy failures (at taxpayer expense),  it’s no wonder even Greenies allowed the rain to give them an excuse not to participate in Earth Day, this year.
