HG: The race baiters were so quick to jump on the Martin/Zimmerman story, they skipped over the FACTS and rushed headlong into their usual rhetoric.

Zimmerman should never have even been charged, it was self-defense and that is how the jury rightfully ruled it.

"The news media is in BUSINESS. They pick stories that will drive interest."

No, liberal news media picks stories based on political correctness and an agenda "to change the world".

Sorry, but the objective of news reporting should not be to influence society, not craft opinion, not tell people what or how to think. Just simply report the news.

Too many people do not know how to think critically on their own, they allow opinion media to form their thoughts for them. They'll allow themselves to be lead by the nose right to their own doom.

Why? because it takes time and research to form a well informed opinion and most people are too lazy to do it.

Jumping a stranger. Smashing his head into the concrete, after he has turned around to get into his truck, screaming for his attacker to back off. A corrupt shill media pitting Americans against each-other, using race as a tool.

EVIDENCE DOESN'T MATTER TO SOME! It doesn't fit the "story" you've been sold. YOU are sold stories OVER AND OVER again. You buy them OVER AND OVER again, and when the fact-storm blows over the house of cards, you pout, cry and pull out a list of bullet points written by half-wit comedians to regurgitate, and repeat.

Thank god you can still protect yourself from having your head SMASHED into the concrete in the USA.

It's a shame that Lee Rigby didn't have the same right... I'll be damned if I roll over and give up mine.

In fact, in my opinion, conservatives rushing to support zimmerman is what turned this into a story.


Riiiight! Because THAT happened first!
THEN the Sharptons and the Obamas took up Trayvon's cause! AFTER the conservatives rioted across the USA in support of the WHITE guy!!

Even though, you know, he's not exactly "white" or anything...

You are entitled to your... opinion...

Did the black perps in this beck story go free? NO? I'm guessing not. I'm guessing they are in prison. So what is his point?

The justice system TENDS to do its job better for white victims than for black victims. Does anyone disagree with that?

THAT is what made this a story.

A black guy killing a white kid doesn't need intervention because everyone naturally assumes the justice system will take care of it. It just so happens it didn't with scott.

I love how some of you think this is the evil mainstream liberal media. F.ucking Fox News made JUST as much of this story, IF NOT MORE, than other outlets.

In fact, in my opinion, conservatives rushing to support zimmerman is what turned this into a story.

The news media is in BUSINESS. They pick stories that will drive interest.

You really want to ask the mother of a kidnapped black girl how she feels about the cavalcade of missing blonde haired white girls on the news while her daughter gets no mention whatsoever?

It isn't biased or racist, it is business.

Stop blaming the media, they just give the people what they want.

Stop watching punditry and spin and zimmerman / martin will be allocated back to what it should have been, a tragic local news story.

"Yes."

Well I can't argue that if that is how you see it. I just don't. He didn't look like a man on the verge of death to me.

Although nobody really knows except for him. He gets to live with that for the rest of his life. He gets to live with the knowledge that if he would have stayed in the car like he was told that kid would be alive.

You guys act like zimmerman was getting beaten to death and had no choice but kill trayvon or be killed. Is that really the way you see it?

Yes.

@YugureKage: The point is that the MSM, Sharpton AND OBAMA made it a "race story"! THAT is the point Beck is making: that the MSM constantly claimed "If TM had been white there would be outrage! GZ would have been jailed if HE was black"
They repeated that 1,000 times!
But it was a bare-faced LIE!
Because hundreds of similar cases, with WHITE dead and BLACK shooters? They got the exact same result as GZ: not guilty.

Meanwhile? 100s of BLACKS killing whites are ignored by the MSM.
Hundreds of BLACKS killing other blacks? Also ignored!!

THAT is what makes this a "race issue", and Obama, Oprah and all their fellow race-baiters are the bigots here.

Emmett Till = Trayvon Martin? Jesus Tapdancing Christ!! The ONLY similarity is SKIN COLOUR! NOTHING ELSE!

@HolyGod is on "the troll" eh?
Are we race baiting?

Yes! And we're sick of it! By "we" you mean the "left" the "liberals" and the MSM, correct? Because THEY are the only ones who openly "race bait" in America...

Race has nothing to do with it.

But YES! Yes race DOES have a lot to do with it! At least that's what the MSM and the IAB Liberal Brigade has been SCREAMING for the past year or more (about GZ & TM, NOT all those other cases, of course!)
You deny this?

The POINT, which has eluded you, is that the MSM is in a frenzy BECAUSE TM was black! NOT in a frenzy for an almost identical situation with a WHITE dead person.
See? The point?

at least nothing extreme,

Ah! The excuses! EXCUSES! How fast they flow when the skin colour is politically correct!

"Yes because fist fits have never resulted in someone dead right?"

I'm sure they have. What do you honestly think the percentage is? Way less than 1% probably?

So what you are saying is that if any action by someone else can POSSIBLY result in my death then I have the right to kill them?

Let's say you have a teenage son and he gets in a fistfight with another teenager at the baseball field and the other kid pulls out a gun and shoots your son.

You OK with that because fistfights sometimes result in death so the other kid had the right to defend himself?

Some kid with no real history of violence, at least nothing extreme, suddenly is going to beat a helpless stranger to death with his bare hands?

You think if zimmerman puts his hands over his head and curls up in the fetal position instead of going for his gun that trayvon is just going to continue to beat him to death for no reason?

That takes a total sociopath and there is nothing to suggest that behavior out of trayvon. Sorry, smoking weed, being black, and having gold teeth don't count.

"This is a horrible incident.

However I don't get the point that Beck is trying to make. Horrible s.hit happens constantly that isn't covered.

Children are kidnapped in this country every day and the media picks one or two to turn into national stories.

Is this supposed to be a race story? I don't get it. Are we race baiting? Do we think beck would have covered this if the couple killed were black? "

Well said. Kind of what I was trying to say, but much more concise. Though i did see Beck's point, and I think it belittles the victims of these deaths because of the way is using these poor people's tragedy to fuel more hatred. Same goes for the Trayvon case. By publicizing these things in this way people are only perpetuating hate.

"Your philosophy is why bullies are so successful."

Well I apologize then. Let's use YOUR philosophy and let kids carry guns at school. Then anytime a bully picks on a kid they can kill them.

I remember my little brother got in a fight in third grade and he came home with a bloody nose and a black eye. Too bad he didn't have a gun. That would have been much better.

@holygod
Yes because fist fits have never resulted in someone dead right? Was there over use of force maybe. But just because he does not have a weapon DOES NOT mean you will life is safe and you will just get a ass beating as you so put it.

I really dislike Glen Beck. But there are valid points in this, such as the boy's horrific death being more closely related Emmett Till than Trayvon Martin. But people are horrid sometimes. Hate and being really, really mentally screwed up lead to the deaths of these two people. I hate how America needs to make everything about race. I hate how our society is taking one step forward and 20 back. Both sides need to stop pulling the race card. People are freaking people, the good, the bad, and the ugly can come in all people regardless of race or whatever. And that man on the stand, anyone can see how broken he is from having either witnessed or been part of these terrible things. I think his emotion was real.

Well said HolyGod! It's the victims fault, not the aggressors!!!!

I'm sure as GZ's head was being bashed into the pavement he was thinking exactly that.

Your philosophy is why bullies are so successful.

"Yet some of you claim GZ had no right to defend himself. WTF is going in this country and in some of your warped minds?"

Roderick Scott should be in prison in my opinion. Him being freed doesn't change my mind that Zmmerman should be in prison as well. Race has nothing to do with it. If an armed man shoots and kills an unarmed kid then that man should be in prison.

Zimmerman had a right to defend himself in a fistfight, but not with a gun. Lethal force is not an appropriate defense of a butt kicking, especially one you instigated.

Take your butt kicking like a man, fight back, run away, or keep your ass at home and mind your own business. The moment you take out a gun you are a p.ussy and you deserve to be treated as such in prison.

Just my opinion.

Like Roderick Scott. He shot and killed Christopher Cervini, 17 year old white kid that was unarmed. This just happened in 2009 and he was acquitted. He said the 17 year old was trying to steal his neighbor's car and he told Cervini to freeze but he said he came at him, so he shot him twice and killed him. Now, Trayvon Martin actually was pounding on Zimmerman, there was proof of the that. There was no uproar or anything about Roderick Scott shooting an unarmed kid that NEVER touched him. How was his life endangered? Yet some of you claim GZ had no right to defend himself. WTF is going in this country and in some of your warped minds? If you think this case is ok, and GZ should have been in prison, please do the world a favor and kill yourself.

Powerful stuff. If what he says about the coverage is true then it looks like the 'minorities' finally got their way.
Let's hope the next child doesn't belong to one of these useless liberals.

@HolyGod apparently Oprah was trying to compare the Trayvon Martin cast to Emmett Till who was a black kid that got murdered for flirting with a white girl back in the 40s. I think beck was trying to say that this murder was closer to Emmett Till than Trayvon. I may dislike beck, but I can see his point.

I think the point is that the National news media seemingly ignored this story, because of the black on white crime. I live in the Knoxville area, where this incident happened and while we saw in depth coverage major news networks ignored it. Compared to the Trayvon Martin case, I think this was a much bigger deal and didn't even receive half of the media attention. If the roles had been reversed, it would have been all the news would have talked about.

That was incredibly sad,

and Glen Beck grosses me out on his own.

I think I'm going to go puke for the next 10 minutes.
Thanks for that post. >.<
