(Via Breitbart) Many are asking questions about the silence from civil right “leaders” such as Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton about the recent beating of a white student by three black classmates on a Florida school bus, given their role in turning the Trayvon Martin case into a national civil rights controversy. I caught up with Rev. Jackson at Chicago’s annual Bud Billiken Back-to-School Parade on Saturday.
Breitbart News: Rev. Jackson, can you comment on the recent beating that happened between three black kids that beat up the kid on a school bus? Does black leadership have a responsibility to say something about that kind of violence?
Jackson: People who care should speak to it. I was in Africa until yesterday, I heard about it. We are trying to make contact with the family of the kid because we should discourage people attacking people, whether it’s black, white, white, black, black, that people should stop attacking people. We must learn to live together respectfully in a civilized way. And it becomes white, black, black white, it just makes matters worse, it does not make matters better.
Breitbart News: The question is based on the Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman case. That case was brought into the national arena as a very racially divisive case, as a white on black crime.
Jackson: It’s hard to make a comparison, in one case a man was unarmed, killed by another man, last year a hundred and thirty five blacks were killed, black men, unarmed, killed by vigilantes, police, killed by security guards, so whether it’s the case of Oakland, California, or the case in New York, it’s just too much of it. Wherever it occurs, it must always be discouraged; there must be a deterrent from it occurring. We must urge people to live in civilized ways. (link)
Forget 2j’s ridiculous obfuscations for a moment. I have been contemplating whether or not to actually dig further into this Bus Driver story. The obvious questions are not being asked; and they are of similar constitution to the B-29 Juror interview in the post GZ case analysis.
Knowing how the entire construct around the willfully blind media works, and the unspoken hand-in-hand acceptance of the BGI agenda by the media, under the auspices of racial harmony, I have been reluctant. Then Don Lemon stepped into the fray on 8/10/12 during his Saturday show. What transpired in that segment was sickening – You can read it HERE [It’s about 2/3 of the way down the page]
It is obvious, at least to me, we never would have known of this incident were it not for the other students on the bus recording the beatdown. It was also obvious the local BGI around this bus driver understood the danger of the optic against the backdrop of the Trayvon drumbeat.
This bus driver appeared on day one of the publicity with an attorney – how did he, an average invisible bus driver of no consequence, find *that* attorney? An attorney willing to travel around from Florida, to Atlanta GA, To Orlando, To New York City, for the media-tour…. Pay?
No-one of intellectual honesty would say this bus driver was behaving in a vacuum. He knew full well the students on that bus, and he knew full well what was taking place during the beating. Additionally, he took NO ACTION after the beating was complete, to assist the victim. Why?
When the beating was finished, and the thugs had disbanded, there was no longer the excuse of fear from involvement. Yet he rendered no aid. Why?
What social associations are surrounding this bus driver? What church? What community engagements? How did he find the attorney? An attorney willing to travel with him, free of charge to all of the multiple-dozens of media interviews? Who’s paying? The fact the attorney is white -in this instance- looks carefully scripted. Scripted also seems to be the appropriate descriptive for how Mr. Moody is being presented.
If you peel all the skin of the onion, down at the core of this example I think you’ll find the same puppeteers, albeit of a perhaps local nature, who reached out to him – in advance of the media. Within that reach-out is the understanding of the “risk”.
The contrast is so obvious it’s blinding to look upon.
If a 13 year old black boy was beaten by three 15-year-old white boys, and a white bus driver did nothing to assist him, nor did he care for him after the beating, and the other white students on the bus were filming what was taking place, well, c’mon…..
……. this would be a 24/7 news cycle for months with a well publicized White House visit certainly in the works before the cast on the kid’s broken arm was removed.
For the media to opine otherwise just further solidifies their insufferable irrelevance.
