Are we seeing the beginnings of a race war?
Via Gateway Pundit:
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.
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.
Here is your “climate of hate”, media. And you are complicit.
