Anything for the paradigm: more ugly politics

A black kid gets shot by a police wanna-be and the race baiters go ballistic. Similar to the recent misogeny paradigm assault, this one also had a ‘show and tell’ hearing presented by Democrat Congressmen. Collateral damage is also present as a wrong address has put the fear of the mob front and center for one couple. Mohr and Hutchinson (AP) describe how Supporters of Fla. shooter [are] fearful of speaking out:

“Trayvon Martin’s supporters pack churches, swarm rallies and wear hooded sweat shirts in solidarity while friends and family of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot the unarmed teen to death, remain largely out of sight. The few that have defended Zimmerman did so reluctantly, most fearing public backlash.”

It appears that the mob has even gone to robbing convenience stores to show their support for the ‘innocent victim’ of racism. The hoodie has become on par with the veil and burka.

On the other end of the spectrum is a story about people who are fed up with the glorification of violence and social misfits. White reports about Critical charges dropped against Michigan militia:

“A federal judge dismissed the most serious charges Tuesday against seven members of a Michigan militia who were rounded up as homegrown extremists accused of plotting war against the U.S., saying their expressed hatred of law enforcement didn’t amount to conspiracy against the government.

“The decision is an embarrassment for the government, which secretly planted an informant and an FBI agent inside the Hutaree militia four years ago and claimed members were armed for war in rural southern Michigan.”

“But there never was an attack. Defense lawyers say highly offensive remarks about police and the government were wrongly turned into a high-profile criminal case that drew public praise from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who called Hutaree a “dangerous organization.””

It is possible to try to put in a ‘both sides are the same’ on these two cases but there is a difference. The race baiters have engaged in threats and violence that has been carried out with support from the President and a political party. The ‘white militia’ was all words and isolated in both geographic and political scope. Justice seems gone awry and the many who have been quiet may not stay that way in light of such distortions. For instance, a 2007 photographer arrest incident was finally settled in Boston with a payment of $170 and the discipline of two police officers (fs). People are watching and listening and talking with each other and it is not only the aggrieved but also those worried about civilization and society and its morals and values.
