The mainstream media are not terribly interested in this story.
That’s because their outrage is only a tactic in the liberal war against Conservatives. Liberals are not really upset about Trayvon Martin’s death. They only view Martin as a prop in their kabuki theater. To be moral one must have consistent values. But liberals have selective values—Romney’s dog-on-the-roof in contrast to Barack eating dog—where anger and smugness substitute for morality.
George Zimmerman is a “white Hispanic” who carried a gun and shot a black man. Thus he is an evil racist. If the liberal media even bothered to cover this story, which they won’t, they would designate Alton Hayes a “frustrated youth who has no other means of expressing his legitimate grievances in a racist society.” It’s the same progressive thinking that justifies homicide bombings against Jews in Israel.
By the way, if George Zimmerman is a white Hispanic doesn’t it follow that Barack Obama is a white black man?
Maywood, Ill. — Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.
Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”
The two allegedly rifled through the victim’s pockets, then threw him to the ground and punched him “numerous times” in the head and back before running away, police said. Hayes and the boy are black; the victim is white.
After being arrested, Hayes told police he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up because he was white, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said, citing court records. . . .
Hayes, 18 of the 1200 block of North Woodbine Avenue in Oak Park, was charged with attempted robbery, aggravated battery and a hate crime, all felonies, Oak Park police Detective Cmdr. Ladon Reynolds said.
