Journalist James T. Harris is not a fan of double-standards or political correctness, so he had plenty to say about the disabled Trump supporter who was tortured in a live video.
“If a group of white suburbanites drove into the inner city of Chicago, kidnapped a black individual, drove back to the suburbs, tied him up, tortured him, cut him, forced him to drink from a toilet, forced him to denounce Barack Obama, forced him to denounce black people, and then they released him back to his old neighborhood, and they videoed the whole thing on Facebook live, all hell would break loose,” James T. Harris said in a now viral Facebook post.
Harris was right. We all know he was right, but the mainstream media pundits still insist no double standard in their coverage exists.
It took TWO days for Chicago police officials and the press to deem the torture of the disabled white Trump supporter exactly what is obviously was – a hate crime. Within minutes of a police involved shooting involving a young black man, the media and the Justice Department are alleging a hate crime may have occurred – sans any supporting facts.
“There would be rioting on the scale that would make Ferguson and Baltimore look ridiculous,” Harris continued. Of course there would be rioting, with hordes of reporters converging on the scene to cover every single minute of it.
Jumping to conclusions is not an acceptable practice for politicians and journalists – unless the crime in question does not suit their liberal narrative. Once the mainstream media did finally cover the Chicago hate crime against the disabled teenager accurately, they bent over backwards to downplay the racial and political aspect of the torture.
The pundits also focused the bulk of their coverage not on the victim but on making excuses for his four attackers. The ages of attackers, three were 18 and one was 24, were a particular point of concern for the liberal elites.
Apparently, whatever you do or say when you are legally an adult but still youthful really shouldn’t count. Surely all the 18 to 24-year-olds sitting in prison for a myriad of other crimes would like to get the do-over liberals and the press seem to want to grant the four torturers here.
Discussion of why the four black suspects chose to torture a disabled white victim allowed the liberal reporters and their guests to lament the influence of social media on millennials and to even begin to ponder whether or not poor parenting may have played a role in the level of cruelty present in the disabled teen’s attackers.
Not taking responsibility for one’s actions and instead casting blame on society and poverty is a favorite pastime of the elites. President Barack Obama said as much when finally commenting on the Facebook torture video.
Obama denied that racial relations have gotten worse during his tenure in the White House. He said such angst over skin color always existed, but the invention of smart phones and social media only now allows such acts to be shared in real time with the public. Um, Mr. President, smart phones and social media existed BEFORE you took the oath of office!
