The Rape, Torture, Murder of Christopher Newsom and Chanon Christian, and the Zimmerman Trial

Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

The George Zimmerman trial is a TV ratings bonanza.

We are told that this is an important trial because…

Well, because the liberal ruling class and the race hustlers who work in concert to Balkanize this nation—race, gender, religion, whatever works—tell us that this is a narrative about race relations in America. George Zimmerman is being cast as a post-modern Bull Connor. Forget that Zimmerman is dark-skinned and Hispanic. Ignore the inconvenient fact that Zimmerman mentored young black kids. Forget that it’s Trayvon Martin who was the racist, referring to Zimmerman as a “creepy-ass cracker.”

Barack Hussein Obama most helpfully told America that Trayvon Martin could have been his son.

Translation: Trayvon Martin was black. Therefore, Obama (half black, raised by his white grandparents) identifies with him.

With all due respect to President Obama, this statement is fundamentally racist. It is an ideology that places skin color—not humanity, truth, or justice—as the center of a value system.

The Newsom-Christian story—an atrocity worthy of Nazis, or comparable to the cruel depredations of Japanese imperial troops—was ignored by the mainstream press. And the reason the liberal media deliberately buried this story is because the human monsters who committed this barbarous act were black, and the victims were white.

The professional race-baiters—Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Bobby Rush, Barack Obama, the entire lynch party at MSNBC—are still out there pushing their vile and false narrative.

Seraphic Secret published this story on April 3, 2012. And nothing has changed.

The KKK have nothing on these monsters.

George Zimmerman is being tried, judged and lynched by the race-baiters of the left—in concert with the liberal media. Race-hustlers like Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters and Barack Obama are doing what they do. I expect no less. It’s how they make a living. It’s why they breathe.

But the media is supposed to maintain some semblance of objectivity. The media is supposed to guard against the lynch mobs. But now the liberal media is the lynch mob. There is no daylight between the vulgar, grammatically incoherent rhetoric of Al Sharpton and the smooth editorial pages of the NY Times.

We have no idea what happened between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. That is an issue for the judicial system.

But we know exactly what happened in Tennessee in 2007 when five black racists abducted a white couple, then raped, tortured, and murdered them in ways that recall the horrors the Japanese visited on the people of Nanking.

The story of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian was blacked out by the national media.

As anyone with half a brain realizes, black-on-white crime, common as dirt, is routinely ignored. According to the liberal media, black-on-black crime, which is even more routine, does not exist. When was the last time we heard about the black/black homicide rates in Chicago—the highest in the country? These acts of violence go down the memory hole. It’s the method Communist dictatorships use to rewrite the past and distort the present in order to paint a utopian tomorrow.

The liberal media in America have adopted the Pravda model of journalism.

This story, fully reported by Flopping Aces, is horrifying. I had to force myself to read the stomach-churning details. But it is important that we know what happened to Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian and to chastise a national media that routinely ignores the white victims of black racial hatred in favor of setting forth a false and dangerous narrative that paints America as socially and institutionally racist.

On Saturday January 6, 2007 Hugh Christopher Newsom, age 23 and Channon Gail Christian, age 21, both students at the University of Tennessee went out on a date.

They were driving in Channon’s Toyota 4-Runner when they were carjacked at gunpoint. Suddenly the crime turned far more savage than an armed car theft. Chris and Channon were kidnapped and driven to 2316 Chipman Street where they were forced into the home at gunpoint.

While Channon was forced to watch, her boyfriend was raped prison style. He was later driven to nearby railroad tracks where he was shot and set afire. But Channon’s hell was just beginning. She was beaten; gang raped repeatedly in many ways, and bleach poured down her throat to destroy DNA evidence—all while she was still alive. They too set her body afire, apparently inside the residence, but for some reason left her body there—in five separate trash bags.

Full story at Flopping Aces.

My friend David Gerstman (AKA Soccer Dad) brings to our attention Blogrunner’s coverage of the Newsom-Christian atrocity, and Glenn Reynold’s coverage on Instapundit.

    I’m only mentioning this because the families have said that it hurts them to read/hear those things, and the truth is bad enough.

    Christopher’s penis wasn’t cut off, nor was Channon’s breast.  And she wasn’t urinated on. 

    Everything else is true though.

    I have never in my life seen a case as distorted and twisted for profit like that of the Zimmerman/Martin case.  I have never seen 911 calls altered, lexicons like ‘white Hispanic” or ‘Hispanic by choice” created to make something about race that never was in the first place.

    Now the Martin’s-who couldn’t give their son the attention he deserved when he was alive, who didn’t get him help when he was stealing, fighting and using and selling drugs are now millionaires and hanging out with celebrities, when they weren’t even the ones who raised him-he was pawned off on his stepmother.

    The Newsoms and Christians have had to sit through 300 court appearances for five defendants and two retrials, and got to be told that they couldn’t wear button with their child’s picture on them to court.

    What is happening in this country is disgusting.  I’m not even white and I can see who’s being shafted.  White people are the only people that it’s OK to be prejudice or racist against and their crimes are ignored while white on black crime, which is hardly existent is distorted and used for profit.

    When are white people going to get together and march?  Or protest-well besides the KKK?  When will enough be enough?

    “The president of Criminal Justice Journalists, an association of crime, court and prison writers, editors and producers, said, ‘I can’t say that this one would have had any more coverage if five whites had been accused of doing these things to two blacks . . ..'”[45]
    Yeah, right.

    Notice that Lemaricus Davidson was a recently released ex con.  The guy who killed the Dr.’s family in Connecticut was also a recently released ex con.  Why are these hardened criminals released from prison?  If someone murders, molests children, or rapes….there should be no second chances.

    This story made me nauseous.  It’s unbelievable to think someone could stay conscious throughout that.  So the lesson is, if 5 guys hijack a car g-d forbid, do not drive them somewhere…just run or smash into them with the car and let them shoot you.  Better that than torture.  I don’t know how they even thought of this stuff or why human beings would want to do this to other people.  I am sick and tired of the press/media being in control.  Thankfully, there’s Foxnews, to give another point of view.

    Reynolds was all over this story because of the TN connection, but the media just didn’t want to look at it. It would destroy their narrative of race relations. You know, the one where it’s always 1958 and those evil Republicans are blocking the schoolhouse doors chanting ‘segregation now, segregation forever.’
    Things like this never happen to news anchors living on the Upper East Side.

      Of course it was Democrats who blocked the school house doors to black studets; it was Democrats who turned the water hoses on peaceful protestors.

      It was, and still is, Republicans who believe in equality as an eternal, G-d given right; not something to be controlled and distributed by the government, fashionable ideas based on shallow, intellectual trends.

        Yeah, funny how Bull Connor, George Wallace, etc are never identified as Democrats. Everyone you see using a water hose on marchers or blocking a schoolhouse door belonged to one party.
        And with a history like that, why did civil rights leaders become Democrats?

          Civil rights leaders where republicans… research.  Abraham Lincoln abolished slavery (pretty big civil rights leader) and he was republican.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was a republican.  They were fighting the democratic party.  Did you sleep through history classes?

          Don’t you know, George Wallace was a REPUBLICAN Democrat, just like George Zimmerman is a WHITE Hispanic, and half-white Obama is just BLACK.

    I have followed this story. These people who did this have forfeited their claim to be humans and all the rights and protections that go with it. I have seen some hard things in my life and know what has to be done, this ranks right up there. They would definitely not want me to dispose of the cases of these five.

      I’m with you on this. I support capital punishment. For these black American Nazis, I’d gladly throw the switch, knot the noose, release the gas, depress the plunger. With a smile.
