WATCH: Juan Williams Fights Hannity & Allen West Over Zimmerman: The Case Was All About Race

by WeAreTheSavageNation

Published on Jul 23, 2013

July 23, 2013 – Sean Hannity tonight brought up the “rise in racial tension” after the George Zimmerman trial ended and asked Allen West and Juan Williams why the country appears to be so divided on racial lines. Williams fought Hannity’s assertion that it makes no sense since the decision was not about race, firing back that of course it was about race; from the very beginning all people talked about was race.

West slammed the push by some black leaders “stoking… racial division,” and the media for going right along with it, while ignoring many other cases and cherry-picking issues to keep the separation in place. Williams declared that the trial led to a “higher level of distrust between people in this country,” not just on racial lines, but on party lines. Hannity confronted Williams over whether President Obama’s comments on the trial mean he has any blame in the division that’s sprung up. Williams started to talk about race when Hannity piped up to say there was “no race in this case.” Williams shot back that the entire conversation, from the time when the public first learned about the case to the present. He said the case only first got attention because the local cops didn’t prosecute. Hannity insisted this was due to lack of evidence.

He and West found it outrageous how the media and major civil rights leaders seemingly don’t care about other issues of crime and punishment in the black community. Williams agreed on this point, saying the media has completely ignored the “carnage” of black-on-black crime, and said gangster rappers ought to be called out for “corrupting our kids.”

Real vs. Politically Manufactured Priorities – What is the legacy for the next generation in the black community?
This week we have seen our nation become enthralled with last weekend’s news of George Zimmerman being found “not guilty” in the Trayvon Martin trial. There has been monumental media coverage of this case, trial, and now in the aftermath of the jury verdict.

This was a tragic event; a young man lost his life.

I ask if all this media attention is part of race-based politics resulting from misguided priorities?

Race Baiters Weighting the Court of Public Opinion
Perhaps, if there had been less external influencers advocating for their warped vision — or version — of social justice, the legal system could have proceeded and done what was expected. But when the race baiters become engaged and place their demands upon the system, the system cannot operate objectively.

Was a young unarmed man shot and killed?

Yes.

Was there undo pressure to create charges that created stipulations and conditions that would be difficult for the prosecution to present?

Yes.

It is clearly evident that with all the media, advocacy groups, and government involvement, this case was being tried not in a courthouse but in the arena of public opinion even before it reached trial. Then when the case finally went to trial it became transparently clear, at least to some, that “legally” this was going to be a heavy lift.

The outside voices pushed this to be a second-degree murder charge, a charge that puts a much higher burden upon the prosecution. Or perhaps, in certain circles in America, we have come to a place where we do not believe in “innocent until proven guilty.” The responsibility of the prosecution was to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt; they were unable to do so.

The Federal Government as Pawn of Special Interests
Now, in the aftermath, we see the external actors not learning their lesson but pressing their case. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid prodded the United States Department of Justice to take a look into the case. “This isn’t over,” Sen. Reid told NBC’s Meet the Press.

The NAACP immediately asked the U.S. Department of Justice to file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. Funny, they were really silent when former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams wrote that the prosecution was triggered by threats from the head of the New Black Panther Party.

The Congressional Black Caucus released a statement saying Trayvon Martin’s civil rights were violated. Where is the evidence?

Does it concern anyone other than myself to hear politicians and advocacy groups seeking to use the federal government to guarantee their desired outcomes, their version of justice?

If we are a constitutional republic that regards the system of federalism and states’ rights as preeminent, then should we be using the federal government as a battering ram? Yes, there are times when the federal government should intercede and those instances are outlined clearly in the U.S. Constitution.

Just as we see cherry-picking of laws to enforce by the federal government, the last thing we need is for the federal government to cherry-pick which cases deserve its attention.

General Holder & Booker T. Washington
This week Attorney General Holder made several references during speeches to the predominantly black Delta Sigma Theta sorority and NAACP conventions expressing sympathy for the Trayvon Martin’s parents. I find it interesting that Holder was not so concerned for the parents of deceased Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry as a result of Operation Fast and Furious.

The Justice Department has set up a website for “tips” on the issue of a civil rights probe after the FBI conducted an extensive investigation and found no animus of racial hatred, and even the prosecution in the trial stated it was not about race.

We should not have certain media commentators with a very questionable past becoming the leading voices that only use inflammatory language for their own personal relevance.

In 1911 Booker T. Washington stated, “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

The class to which this great leader refers is maintaining the media spectacle at the expense of the major concerns of the black community.

What Are the Real Crises in the Black Community?
While tragic, Trayvon Martin’s death should not be the reason that the black community is marching in the streets. Black unemployment, gang crime, health problems, and abortion rates are plagues upon black people across the country.

Let’s first look at the shooting murder of 16-year-old Darryl Green who last Thursday was found lying facedown in an abandoned house in Chicago’s south side Englewood neighborhood. It seems this young man refused to join a gang … And what do you hear?

Chirping.

In April, De’Marquise Elkins, 17, and Dominique Lang, 15, both pleaded “not guilty” to theMarch 21st shooting of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago during a robbery of his Mother in Brunswick Georgia. And what do you hear?

Chirping.

The unemployment rate for blacks is at an all-time high and the black teenage unemployment rate is epic. Yet when a group like the Black American Leadership Alliance stands up against the current Senate immigration legislation (S.744) articulating its adverse affects on the black community in letters to the Senate and Congressional Black Caucus and by holding a rally in DC this past week, what do you hear?

Chirping.

Since 1973 Black American deaths have emanated from*:

AIDS: 203,695
Violent Crimes: 306,313
Accidents: 370,723
Cancer: 1,638,350
Heart Disease: 2,266,789
Abortion: 13,000,000

*All figures are based upon cumulative statistics by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC)

Please watch our Next Generation.TV video on this. 

The incidence of abortion in the black community has resulted in a tremendous loss of life, but you will only get chirping from the Congressional Black Caucus or the NAACP unless you go to websites like BlackGenocide.org or the National Black Catholic Congress.

We are talking about a black community that could be close to 36 percent larger. I do believe in research for ovarian, cervix, uterus cancers and treatment for fibroid tumors that promote better reproductive health for women.

So what are the real priorities in the black community? Politically manufactured crises, as pushed by the race-baiting, faux leaders in the black community, propped up by progressive socialists and the complicit media?

Just take a walk through any inner city neighborhood and ask yourself what is the legacy for the next generation in the black community.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

Allen West “The NY Times is at it again, calling the GOP in disarray and racist”

westfoxsm

by Allen West via Facebook Status Update

It seems some writer at the NY Times is at it again, calling the GOP in disarray and racist. Perhaps this gent needs a little history lesson. The Democrat party gave America slavery, secession, segregation, and socialism. Jim Crow laws, poll tax, literacy tests, and providing women checks for having children out of wedlock are further examples of Democrat policies. President Lincoln broke the chains of physical bondage. President Reagan broke the chains of economic bondage. The writer thinks the GOP is in disarray, but it’s thanks to liberal progressive policies emanating from the Obama administration that America is in disarray. The demise of our economic, energy, and national security are evident and the State of our Union is horrific. I would much rather be a member of a political party that rewards my individual industrialism, than one which promotes my individual subjugation.

 

Help ensure we keep Rep Allen West in Washington to restore honor and integrity to government

Dear Friend,

Bill Maher and liberals like him are gravely threatened by a black conservative willing to stand up to their reckless agenda.

This week, Obama’s million-dollar Super PAC donor and “comedian” Bill Maher leveled racial smears against Allen West and the “Party of the Apes.”

Maher went on to say that when fellow Republican representatives greet Allen in Washington, they probably say, “‘Word, Allen. Word.’ Because that’s how they think black people talk.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Bill Maher has made racist and sexist remarks. He has a history of offensive, misogynistic attacks on women as well.

  • In one 11-day period in 2011, Maher repeatedly assaulted Sarah Palin, calling her a “bimbo” and hurling two sexist epithets during his stand-up “comedy routine.”
  • He has repeatedly leveled insults at Bristol Palin as well, saying just this past May that Bristol would “name her next kid Colt 45 after what she’s drinking when she gets pregnant.”
  • And in April, Maher attacked Ann Romney saying she has “never gotten her ass out of the house to work

President Obama and Allen’s left-wing opponent won’t speak out against these racist and sexist attacks. In fact, they’ll likely circle the wagons. Help us fight back by donating today! Help ensure we keep Allen West in Washington to restore honor and integrity to government.


Liberal policies have failed. They are cornered and desperate. Clearly, the liberal left will stop at nothing to maintain their grip on power. Help ensure they don’t! Donate/Volunteer today

Rep Allen West Editorial “Mr. President, please don’t play the race card in 2012”

by Congressman Allen West

Mr. President, please don’t play the race card in 2012

Congressman Allen B. West

I was born in the inner city of Atlanta in 1961, when segregation was still rife, at a time when I would have been barred from visiting the very beaches that make up part of the congressional district I so proudly represent.

Just two years after my birth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. momentously described his dream that one day his children would “live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.”

How proud he would have been on that November Tuesday in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States. Clearly, Dr. King’s dream had come true. White voters across America had judged our President by the content of his character, not the color of his skin, and elected a man of color, whose very lineage with a black African father and white American mother, was a literal manifestation of the figurative melting pot of these United States.

The inauguration of our first black President, the highest office in the land, and perhaps the world’s most powerful office, clearly demonstrated to the world that race need not be a hindrance to success and achievement in America. The fact that Barack Obama won the largest share of white support of any Democrat in a two-man race since 1976 indicated the lion’s share of these voters made their decision based on his character, his vision of hope and change, and his ability to relate with everyday Americans.

Still, let us not ignore that white Democrats aren’t the only voters who are capable of making a decision based on character rather than color.

In the 2010 election cycle, 42 black Republicans were vying for seats in the House of Representatives, and 14 of them made it to the general election. Two of those candidates, myself as well as Tim Scott from South Carolina, carried that success all the way to the House of Representatives. I represent a Congressional District where more than 90 percent of my constituents are not black. A powerful movement of respect for black conservatism is brewing in this country, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be proud of it.

With all of this progress, why is it that we continue to hear charges of racism emanating from the left, and most disturbingly, from the White House itself? It seems anytime there is criticism of the President or any of his black members of his administration, such as Attorney General Eric Holder, that criticism is decried as racist.

Mr. Holder recently said of his critics, “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him, both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.” In other words, he insinuated Republicans — along with Conservatives and Tea Party members — are incapable of judging anyone solely by their character, something I take very personally.

Mr. Holder and others need to know, the criticism of the President is not of his person, but of his policies, which have clearly failed our nation–and most tragically of all in this supposedly post-racial period –have failed the black community.

As of December 2011, black unemployment remained in double digits, nearly double the national average for men at 16.4 percent, and 14.1 percent for women.

According to a Washington Post poll in September 2011, the proportion of black Americans with a “strongly positive” view of President Obama has slipped from 83 percent to 58 percent. It would obviously be absurd to say the black community’s changing view of President Obama is racially biased, so how can one make the same claim about white members opposing his policies?

As we proceed into this general election cycle, it would be a disgrace if Mr. Holder’s comment is the first salvo in the upcoming campaign to deflect honest assessment of the President’s performance in office. This campaign must be about ideas, policy and the direction of this country, and the President must not hide behind a curtain of so-called racial bias.

All Americans, black or white – and every shade in between – must be allowed to voice their opinions, level their criticisms and engage in candid discussion without fear of being labeled “racist” simply because of the color of their skin. This is precisely what Dr. Martin Luther King spoke of so eloquently, and what we celebrate today.

My message to President Obama is this: “Mr. President, your very presence in office demonstrates Dr. King’s dream has indeed come true. But how devastated would Dr. King be to know the Americans who are still fomenting racism at the highest levels are the very people for whom he fought for and died?”

Audio interview Rep Allen West – NRA – Disgusted with Holder and the Race card

In an interview with the NRA, West slammed Holder for his use of the race card in his defense of Fast and Furious:

Presidential Race 2012: Imperfect Conservatives Need Not Apply – Lloyd Marcus

By Lloyd Marcus

The criteria embraced by the liberal media, Democrats, and some conservatives for selecting the 2012 Republican presidential nominee are quite clear: imperfect conservatives need not apply.  Conservative presidential candidates must have been born yesterday, not having lived long enough to break any of the Ten Commandments, make a mistake, or say or do anything stupid.

However, in their short time on the planet, our conservative candidate, along with possessing a “perfect past,” must display a masterful expertise of all topics foreign and domestic.  Anything less means that our conservative guy or gal is an incompetent idiot.

Then there is the Reelect Obama Liberal Media/Democrat multi-headed dragon, which is committed to completely annihilating any Republican challenger — the better to discourage all future challengers of liberalism. Our candidate is expected to flawlessly and masterfully battle this beast, winning every skirmish, lest we chorus that he or she is not quite presidential material.

Conservative presidential candidates unwilling to wear an “I heart Chaz” t-shirt are homophobic and vehement haters of homosexuals.  Conservative candidates not having at least one Kanye West song in their iPod are white supremacist redneck Tea Party racists.  Black conservative Republican candidates are obviously self-loathing traitors to their race suffering from Stockholm syndrome.

Meanwhile, the requirements for the Democratic presidential candidate are a bit less demanding.  The liberal media’s and the Democrats’ candidate can hang out with self-proclaimed America-haters.  Their candidate can say America has 57 states and mispronounce corpsman as “corpse-man” and still be considered a genius.  He can travel the world bowing to foreign leaders and apologizing for America.  He can wreck America’s economy, hostilely take over a private auto company, cram government-controlled health care down our throats, bully banks, and funnel money to his supporters via government bailouts.  A New York Times article reported that the Times‘s candidate has abandoned pursuing the white working class vote to target entitlement-minded, loser Occupy voters without anyone raising an eyebrow.

Liberal media and Democrats do not give a rat’s rear end about the character of their candidates as long as those candidates further liberalism.

Why I believe in the Tea party by Rob Rosasco (Allen West, Marco Rubio, Pam Bondi and more)

by Rob Rosasco – ROBERTAROSASCO@AOL.COM

America’s oldest political demonstration formed the roots of the tea party today. In 1773 American colonists, furious over a British tax on tea, dumped a shipload of British tea into Boston harbor.

Conservatives of both parties and Republicans in particular are part of the tea party movement because government spending and taxation are out of control. Spending and borrowing have created an unprecedented debt that threatens our nation. These are the driving principles of the tea party.

The tea party message has resonated across the country and in 2010 the election results were dramatic. Republicans took control of congress and most of the new members were tea party activists. In Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and U.S. Rep. Allen West won with tea party support. And across the country over 700 new conservative legislators were elected. Most were Republican.

The tea party has awakened thousands of citizens to the important issues facing our nation. These new activists are studying, learning about self-government and getting involved in the political process. They attend town hall meetings and are contacting their elected officials.

All this has alarmed the left, which is now using all their old angry rhetoric from the past. The left is angry because they love big government. They believe that government should make more decisions for us and that we are not capable of governing ourselves. Last Wednesday, Leonard Pitts stated the left’s position perfectly. “The new Republicans and tea party people are anti-government, anti-Muslim, anti-gay, anti-science, anti-tax, anti-facts and anti the new demographic represented by a dark skinned president (meaning blacks).”

These are angry, absurd and inflammatory statements. Republican and tea party people are not anti-government. To do away with government is anarchy and they believe in the Constitution and this excellent form of government. But they do believe that government must be reduced in size.

WORTH READING – “Violent racist teabaggers?” by Steve Macoy

That’s been the predominant shorthand for how the left feels about the tea-party movement: two lies and a pejorative. In reality, the tea party is neither violent nor racist (for evidence of its lack of racist tendencies, check out the ethnic background of tea-party heroes Herman Cain and Allen West). “Teabaggers” refers to a seriously deviant sexual practice most tea-party members, we suspect, have never tried and wouldn’t even know how to perform without the aid of a manual.

But let’s probe the “violent” part. Tea-party rallies tend to be energetic but well-ordered, and participants have acquired a reputation, grudgingly acknowledged even on the political left, for tidying up their venues (or “redding up,” as we used to say in Pittsburgh, I know not why).

If anyone can provide a confirmed, bona fide example of tea-party types making threats of violence or suggesting they’d relish some bloodletting, let me know. And never mind the Jefferson quote about the blood of patriots. That isn’t a tea-party staple, as far as I know.

On the other hand …

Wednesday night, I was driving on Interstate 84 between Southington and Waterbury, listening to the University of Hartford radio station (WWUHFM 91.3). What can I say? The radio in my car doesn’t work very well. The station, which often plays very good music but is hard to pick up east of Waterbury, was airing a tape of an interview between a far-left college professor and an interviewer, presumably a student, who was lobbing softball questions.

Before the interview had gone very long, the professor was calling the tea party the Ku Klux Klan without the robes. (Wonder what Imperial Wizard Herman Cain has to say about that.) He also predicted another civil war; apparently, the first one wasn’t violent or bloody enough for his taste.

Rep’s Allen West, Tim Scott ,and Repub pres candidate Herman Cain debunking the insulting stereotype

Black Liberals Assault on Herman Cain

 by:  Crystal Wright Columnist, Townhall.com

We live in a democratic country called America where we are given unalienable rights, individual freedoms and liberties to live our lives the way we deem fit. Americans have the freedom to choose what they say, write, their religion and which political party or movement they support: Republican, Democrat, Independent, Tea Party, etc.

But for black Americans the choice of political party appears predestined. It seems liberals but more specifically black liberals have carved in the ten black commandments that “thou shall never be a Republican.” These same black liberals also refuse to submit to the fact that not all blacks think alike.

With black conservatives like Congressman Allen West, Congressman Tim Scott and Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain debunking this insulting stereotype, many black liberals have resorted to racist name calling to protect the myth that Democrat policies help blacks. Cain has been target number one on their list.
