Social Moralizers Turn Backs on Baby Antonio

Arnold Ahlert is a former NY Post op-ed columnist currently contributing to JewishWorldReview.com, HumanEvents.com and CanadaFreePress.com. He may be reached at atahlert@comcast.net.


Picture 4On March 21, 2013, in the coastal city of Brunswick, GA, 13-month-old Antonio Santiago was shot in the face and killed while he was being pushed in a stroller by his mother, a white woman living in a majority non-white city. Two black teenagers, De’Marquise Elkins, 17, and Dominique Lang, 15, have been charged with the crime. The infant’s mother, Sherry West, who was also shot, alleged that the boys demanded money from her. When she said she didn’t have any, West said Elkins fired four shots, grazing West’s ear and striking her in the leg. He then walked around to the stroller and allegedly murdered the baby boy.

The city of Brunswick is 58.9 percent black, 27.5 percent white and 11.3 percent Hispanic. Don’t count on any “social justice” rallies or federal investigations into racism or racial profiling in this case, however.

The city of Sanford, FL, where Trayvon Martin was shot, is only 45 percent white, and media were more than willing to indict the city for systemic racism — and to indict George Zimmerman by extension. The publicity surrounding that case precipitated an investigation by the civil rights division of the U.S. Justice Department into the possibility that Zimmerman committed a hate crime. Moreover, that investigation continues, despite the fact that FBI interviews conducted with 35 of Zimmerman’s neighbors, co-workers and an ex-girlfriend found no evidence of racial bias.

It’s not as if statistics don’t back up the possibility that West and her child were targeted out of racial animus. A study conducted by the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Statistics reveals that, based on data compiled from 1980-2008, blacks “were disproportionately represented as both homicide victims and offenders. The victimization rate for blacks…was 6 times higher than the rate for whites” and the “offending rate for blacks…was almost 8 times higher than the rate for whites[.]” Another study entitled “The Color of Crime” compiled statistics up to the year 2005. It reveals that blacks “are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa,” and “2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.”

But because the victims in the Brunswick case aren’t of the right races (the New York Times might even describe Antonio as a “white Hispanic” baby), no race relation moralizers will rise to demand an investigation. No national figure will call for “soul searching” over the circumstances that led to the heinous killing of the infant. No one will hold the systemic social pathologies that produced the crime accountable.

As for the media, their relative uninterestedness in this case, in comparison to their wall-to-wall coverage of the Zimmerman case — coverage that included misrepresentation, calculated distortion and outright lying – is telling. National media are primarily interested in reporting on the case when they can implicate the parents and cast doubt on the guilt of the two black suspects facing trial.

Thus, on March 26, USA Today ran a piece aimed at besmirching the character of Sherry West. West’s daughter, Ashley Glassey, who said her mother lost custody of her when she was 8, questioned West’s behavior when she spoke with her on the night of the shooting. She claims her mother asked her how soon she would get an insurance check, and that she changed her story about the order of the shooting. (Apparently neither Glassey nor the paper considered the possibility that West might have been in a state of shock.)

In another interview with ABC affiliate WTLV, Glassey claimed her mother is “schizophrenic” and “bipolar.” On July 16, CBS News ran a story noting that both West and the baby’s father, Louis Santiago, “had gunshot residue on them the day their son was killed.” They cited a Fox affiliate in Jacksonville, FL as their source. The Fox story went on to say that Santiago is in jail for violating a restraining order after he “went nuts” after the murder, according to West. “He was throwing things through the window and terrorizing me, saying that I killed my baby and it should have been me,” she said.

Notwithstanding the parents’ character flaws, the police don’t believe that it’s credible that the parents were responsible. “My baby was shot. I was shot near my head and of course there’s going to be GSR [gunshot residue] everywhere,” West said in her defense, further noting that Santiago “may have touched my clothes in the hospital if there was GSR” on him. The state forensic report said that Santiago either “discharged a firearm, was in close proximity to a firearm upon discharge, or came into contact with an item whose surface bears GSR.”

As it stands now, the two teens are the only suspects, and they will stand trial for first-degree murder. It is tentatively scheduled to begin August 19. Part of the evidence included at that trial will likely be the recovered bullet police believe was fired during the crime, as well as a .22-caliber handgun they discovered submerged in a pond two miles from the crime scene. Both items are being analyzed at a crime lab.

There is a possibility the shooting was part of a gang initiation, an angle the police continue to explore. If that allegation turns out to be true, it would seem that the same charge of “profiling” that Florida prosecutors were allowed to level against George Zimmerman should be part of the mix. But don’t be surprised if such zealous prosecution fails to materialize. Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doerin also revealed that there are additional witnesses out there who may fear coming forward, due to the emotionally charged nature of the case. He asked them to reject that fear in favor of seeing that justice is served.

In the meantime, there have been no marches, candlelight vigils or multi-city rallies led by Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. There have been no $10,000 bounties placed on the boys’ heads, like the one placed on Zimmerman’s head by the New Black Panthers. There have been no cries for justice by the Benjamin Jealous-led NAACP. The DOJ’s Community Relations Service (CRS), a self-described “peacemaking” organization that “does not take sides” in community conflicts about race, has not visited Brunswick, despite reports of racial tensions exacerbated by this case. President Barack Obama has not noted that anyone in this case looks like a son he might have had. He has not offered a single word of condolence to Antonio Santiago’s parents or used the case to lecture Americans about the precarious state of race relations in the nation or the tragic nature of urban crime.

Barring some kind of major bombshell delivered during the trial, most Americans will hear virtually nothing more about this crime. In short, this case has been, and will continue to be, treated as another run-of-the-mill killing allegedly perpetrated by black youths. And much like the killings that occur on a daily basis in the inner cities of Chicago, Detroit or Philadelphia, it will elicit nothing resembling the outpouring of indignation from the self-aggrandizing social moralizers who sought to make George Zimmerman an archetype of racial injustice. Their silence regarding this case is enormously and pathetically revealing.

        What on earth is the matter with you! My favorite movie growing up was, “To Sir with Love”, and Sidney Poitier had me, a logger and tugboater, sobbing. My best friends when I was playing football in Colorado and California were great black guys. I am a typical white guy, and I know a lot of whiteys. Nobody has been waging war on black America, except communists(who want us fighting), the Democratic Party and assorted others that have nothing to do with white, conservative Christians! Blacks, Whites, Hispanics and Oriental AMERICANS must unite against Islam before iit’s too late.

    • AlexanderGofen

      I would rather acknowledge that the White traditional America lost its rage and the will to live. It is not like the USSR government that did not like say Jews (a small minority). On the contrary, the White traditional America is still a great majority in this nation – yet behaving like a beaten wife – prophesied by Soviet poet Vladimir Ufland in … 1958:

      America is changing rapidly.
      The Negroes are gaining power
      And soon the famous Lady Liberty
      Will be repainted in black powder.

      Then “disadvantaged” and the poor ones
      Will mock the millionaires blatantly
      While Anglo-Saxon-Whitey Puritans
      Will rush to mimic Negroes ardently.

      They will respect the Negroes dearly
      And glorify the blackest fellow,
      And Whiteys, walking with humility,
      Will bow first to every Negro.

        • AlexanderGofen

          I mentioned Jews in USSR just as an example of a suppressed minority – in grotesque contrast to the suppression of the White MAJORITY in the US now, while you brought the Jews into this discussion pointlessly – only to reveal your anti-Semitic zeal, especially quoting the “institute” negating the Holocaust.

            Are the victims of Marx, a jew, just as much human and victims as the victims of Hitler?

          • AlexanderGofen

            Marx was merely ethnic decedent of Jews, the apostate and villain indeed. Yes, the number of victims of Bolshevism – of Stalin, Mao, and similar – several times exceeds the number of victims of Hitler, and suffering of Bolshevik victims was as terrible as those of Hitler.

            To be accurate with the facts, there had never existed any victims of Marx. Marx was a theoretician and ideologue only. It is not obvious if he really meant all the atrocities of Lenin and Stalin while promoting the dictatorship of the proletariat. We can only speculate what he would do and how he would behave if he ever attained a position of power.

          • beezwaxing

            Not really. Karl Marx clearly said that the “proletarian” revolution would be bloody, violent, and “inevitable.” In so doing, Marx pretended to speak objectively, as if such a fate was unavoidable, not because he wished it to be so, but simply because it would be so. In other words, Marx all but demanded to be worshipped as a prophet, a seer of the future. I take a Jungian view of Marx and his prophesies. To a great extent, the great tragedies of history were self-fulfilling prophecies.

        • The Mad Jewess

          There were 364 Jews in the Bolshevik party of 10,000 Non Jews. 9634 were not Jewish.

          • AmericaFirst

            Don’t be a disingenuous yenta. Whatever the jews’ numbers, they played an disproportionately significant role in the early days of the Soviet Union. But don’t take this White man’s word for it; listen to what this fine, upstanding Chosenite had to say on the subject: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3342999,00.html

          • beezwaxing

            The leader of the Red Army was a Jew, Lev Bronstein, aka Leon Trotsky. On the other hand, Stalin didn’t have much use for Jews, and even less for Trotsky, a rival for power.

          • Gunrunner1

            Liar.

            In the Overman Report to President Wilson, for instance, it said: “. . .
            out of 388 members of the first Soviet Government, sitting in the Old Smolny Institute in Petrograd, 371 were Jews and 267 of these Jews were from the Lower East Side of New York City”! Not even Russian Jews, but
            New York Jews!
            With the exception of Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov), most of the leading Communists who took control of Russia in (1917-20) were Jews. Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) headed the Red Army and was chief of Soviet
            foreign affairs. Yakov Sverdlov (Solomon) was both the Bolshevik party’s executive secretary and – as chairman of the Central Executive Committee- head of the Soviet government. Grigori Zinoviev (Radomyslsky)
            headed the Communist International (Comintern), the central agency for spreading revolution in foreign countries. Other prominent Jews included
            press commissar Karl Radek (Sobelsohn), foreign affairs commissar Maxim
            Litvinov (Wallach), Lev Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Moisei Uritsky

          • AlexanderGofen

            The people you have mentioned are merely ethnic decedents of Jews, the apostates. As Bolsheviks, they were militant atheists and they fought against all religions including Judaism. The proportion of such “Jewish” apostates among Bolsheviks was high, but not near as high as you wrote. No “Jews from New York Brooklyn” had ever come to Russia to prepare the 1917 coup. It was a special sealed train from Switzerland which delivered Lenin and the main organizers of this coup.

        This poem by a communist agitator is meant to instill fear into whitey and black people, create a divide between us. Looks like Obama’s marxist buddies started earlier than we thought

            You know the old saying, ” if you aren’t a socialist by 20yrs old, you have no heart. If you aren’t a conservative by 30yrs old you have no brain”. You don’t have to fear anything, we are very strong and the world knows it. It would take more than Obama to ruin the USA. Vote him and his little commies out and repair the damage, then continue with being the , UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Those last 4 words are the world’s HOPE, and those last 4 words strike FEAR in the hearts of our enemies.

          • tagalog

            Truth to tell, I’m not really petrified. Hardly affected at all. RE: Obama, I’m less worried about getting back on a good track after he’s gone than I am about too many Americans thinking of our government as one that runs on some sort of auto-pilot without our active participation.

          • beezwaxing

            Easier said than done. Whenever the communist gets power, he sees it as an opportunity to steal future elections.

        • AlexanderGofen

          A “communist agitator” would not write a sarcastic poem about the White majority humiliatingly bending back before Blacks in excruciating sense of guilt for the racism in the past.

        Alex, thanks for the info and poem. It seems obvious where Khruschev got his “we will bury you” inspiration. They were pretty astute observers of human nature, too. What a shame that so many Americans are blinded by bitter recriminations.

      • Avi Marranazo

        I agree with you. A people with no identity of themselves as a people sooner or later cease to be a people. It’s similar to the axiom that a nation that doesn’t protect its borders is no nation.

        • beezwaxing

          Howard Zinn began deconstructing American history decades ago. The average high school student today doesn’t have the first clue how, why or who founded this country, and they now believe that America is the worst country in the world, at least, until 2009.

    • herb benty

      You bet! But blacks, whites, hispanics, native Americans and Orientals should shrugg Obama’s Dems off and UNITE. That would blow their minds and send them packing, We have a new Hitler fellow Americans- Islam. Time to throw off our alleged greivances and face the enemy- Progs and Islam.

      • Bobby Pataki

        Last time I checked it was the Jews, not the Muslims, who dominate the Democratic Party and American Liberalism.

        • herb benty

          The Jewish people don’t RUN America as the anti-semites like to bark. Progressives dominate the Democratic Party and American Communism( they are way past being Liberal). The notion that there is a Jew pulling the strings on Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Jarret, Axelrod, etc.,etc,etc is not true and sounds to me like a pre-packaged excuse should the Dems fail. Blame the Jewish people. Jews dominate the Knesset in their own country, is THAT nefarious too! Obama hates the Jewish people and Israel. There ARE lefty Jews, there are Lefty German-Americans also, any talk of Germans running the Democratic Party…..no. Muslims don’t DOMINATE the Dems either, however, the leftist Dems are madly in love with Islam, and that is very worrisome. NASA as an outreach to Islam? Scrubbing any mention of Jihad in our Military!!!

          • Avi Marranazo

            Of course Jewish people don’t RUN America. Nevertheless, the organized Jewish community is very influential in all spheres of political life. Thanks to their contempt for and fear and loathing of the traditional American people and our culture, Jewry’s support has been a necessary, if not sufficient, condition in promoting the Cultural Marxist agenda–namely in turning a European-derived nation into a Third World hodgepodge and in promoting the broader anti-White agenda.

          • herb benty

            Ya, you really are nuts, aren’t you dear boy! Jews came here as a safe place to live, does that sound like they were afraid or loathed us? Promoting of Cultural Marxism? Promoting an anti-white agenda? Everything you just said is what Obama is busy doing, quit blaming the Jewish people for Progressive policies. Himmler would have hired you, at least you will have like-minded pals to discuss your hatred in Hell sonny- unless you repent. Good Luck.

          • beezwaxing

            Avi, I wouldn’t go that far to say that American Jews have contempt for and fear and loathing of the traditional American people and our culture. Maybe some unjustified fear, or to some extent, a desire to live apart from those cultures, but I don’t see any widespread “contempt” or “loathing” for non-Jewish American cultures. There are some Jews who do fit that mold, Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, even at one time, David Horowitz, although he’s long since changed his mind 180 degrees. I venture to say that for every Jew of a far left political ideology, I can name one traditional Jew who loves everything and everyone American; just take Mark Levin or Dennis Prager for two examples.

          • Avi Marranazo

            beez–I fully agree there are / have been some excellent Jewish traditionalists. My favorite was Larry Auster, may he rest in peace. I also appreciate David Horowitz’s volt-face over the years. I said “the organized Jewish community [has] contempt for and fear and loathing of the traditional American people and our culture, [whose] support has been a necessary, if not sufficient, condition in promoting the Cultural Marxist agenda.” I don’t think it’s unreasonable to say that our country would look much different today if the organized Jewish community (not individual Jews) had not been such strident supporters of the Immigration Reform Act of 1965 that opened the floodgates to Third World immigration, including Muslim immigration. http://www.kevinmacdonald.net/CofCchap7.pdf

          • beezwaxing

            Bobby Pataki didn’t say that Jews ran America. He (she?) said that they run the Democrat Party. David Axelrod is, after all, undeniably at the center of the Obama phenomenon and the apex of power in this country today as is Valerie Jarrett.

      • beezwaxing

        Those groups are not likely to do that, even though I do agree that Obama is a latter day Hitler, and very likely either a Muslim or a Muslim sympathizer. I know for a fact, he’s no Christian, unless one counts Christian apostates.

        • herb benty

          Thanks, but damn, Jews have 0 NONE, reasons to hurt America. On the other hand, Muslims are divinely sanctioned to destroy us. Why isn’t it,” anti-muslim fanatic? Why the totally undeserved, Jew-hatred, anti-Christian priority with Democrat support !!! Answer that, sonny.

          • beezwaxing

            Herb, you’re right about Jews. They’re a blessing to every society where they’re allowed to live in peace. If I’ve said anything anti-Semitic, I apologize. That wasn’t my intention. I think what I was really trying to say is that I think that sometimes we gentiles might say something mildly anti-Semitic, or something that we don’t intend as anti-Semitic, or may we may come across that way even though there’s no real malicious intent behind it. I just think that in response to those who might fit one of those categories, a Heinrich Himmler comparison is a bit … well … over the top, at least in this case. I certainly know it doesn’t apply to me. My apologies if I gave offense.

    Barry Loberfeld: What I Learned in the Wake of the Zimmerman Trial

    1) Leftists believe that the verdict they decree in the court of their ideological opinion supersedes whatever verdict will be pronounced in the courts of law, which they know to be systematically corrupt.

    2) Leftists are bored by “crime” (i.e., when the black guy shoots someone) but energized by “racism” (i.e., when the black guy gets shot … by someone nonblack).

    3) Leftists consider it “sociology” – not racism – when they insist that any one action of any one white person is a reflection of all the conscious and unconscious thoughts of all white people (even when the “white person” in question apparently isn’t white).

    4) Leftists define a “dialogue on race” as their delivery of a monologue that others will completely agree with … if they’re not racists.

    5) Leftists demand that white people acknowledge a) the threat of violence they pose to black people (especially young black males), and b) that any fear they have of violence by black people (especially young black males) is yet another manifestation of their racism. (As a practical matter, you’re most likely to get shot by a member of your own race.)

    6) The national media’s treatment of race is best encapsulated by the contrast between “Trayvon” and Christopher Cervini (who?!).

    7) Leftists (e.g., Maya Wiley on MSNBC) believe that “brain science” proves that white people’s opinions are an accumulation of centuries of bias, while their own opinions are … “brain science.”

    8) The bias most entrenched in our society is the confirmation bias of the professional left.

    BL: By all means, forward this to a leftist friend – if you’re secure in the friendship. But if you post it on a “progressive” site, expect it to get deleted.

      • hpe reader

        The child’s parents were gutter trash. You trying to “shame” me for exposing the real problem is what you should be ashamed of. Keep on sweeping it under the rug, it’s working out beautifully so far, eh? Don’t pull your PC censorship here, hun…

        • luckycat76

          If my Christian faith causes me to be labeled as “PC,” then so be it. The behavior on both sides is questionable. Where behavior needs to be punished, then let it be punished.
          Human life, however, as given by our Creator, is not “trash,” and certainly not the life of a baby.

          • hpe reader

            Lucky, you are entirely missing my point. I mean, you Do want to change the situation, right? If so, then you have to consider the reality that neither life style can ever have a different outcome. You will have to stop worrying about someone’s feelings and be honest. The description of the parents was nearly as bad as the perps.
            You seem to be looking at this as a matter of who was wrong and what resulted in the tragic death of the child. Fact is that had the parents been walking the walk of your talk, then they wouldn’t have been in that situation to begin with.
            Gee, I hope I’m making my point here, which wasn’t to talk trash about the child. Of course the child was an innocent vicim. But had he lived in that environment, he would have still been an American tragedy.

          • luckycat76

            “Gutter trash” = the perpetrators
            “Killing”
            “Gutter trash” = the infant victim.

            Pray, how else can one interpret what you wrote, other than that you equate an infant victim with his killers?

          • hpe reader

            I just explained it. You are preoccupied with words, I’m talking about the underlying problem. Our culture has collapsed. Eeverthing has been dumbed down or cheapened. Can’t make the grade? No problem, we’ll lower the standard. Now everyone is “equal” so it’s “fair”. And the guy who calls a spade a spade is the problem. Help yourself to me!

          • luckycat76

            Your initial post, to which I objected, contained five words which comprised an abhorrent statement.
            “Gutter trash killing gutter trash.”
            Pray, where is your reasoned explanation in that statement?

          • hpe reader

            Lucky, I guess I was using shock treatment to get my message across. We simply cannot change the way things are by pretending that culture doesn’t matter. The fact is that 90% of Black Americans are living in a failed culture and no one can point it out without being called a name. Racist, abhorrent, unreasoned…pick one. Same goes for “rednecks” or whatever term you want to use for the same failed culture among whites.
            All of our “education” efforts are spent building up the esteem of preening ignoramuses. It may make someone feel good temporarily but, as you may have noticed, the human condition is getting worse.
            I know, and I’m sure you do as well, people who would be considered “poor” who manage to do quite well. They have homes, jobs, savings, etc. They have homes because they didn’t waste their money on crap. They have jobs because they are valuable to their employers, and so on. BTW, the rap about employers firing workers for no reason is just that, crap (C is silent in rap music). I ran a business for 30 years and hired every competent person who walked thru the door. If I didn’t need anyone, then I found a position for them. Because they are rare. Now, you can’t pay someone more than what they earn but someone who will do a job enthusiastically will always have a job. (Getting off track here but, not really.) The point is that, there is a reason for the decline in America. And it isn’t racism, or a war on women, or gay bashing. Until we address that reason, nothing will change.
            Sorry for the rant but it’s just so sad…and fixable

            Thank you for that thoughtful response. Had I read that first, I would’ve given you thumbs up :)
            I am a speech pathologist by profession, and I spent 17 years of my career in a mixed-race elementary school in an Midwestern urban district. I left the district in 2009 partly because I could no longer tolerate the social deterioration and the district’s inability/unwillingness (take your pick) to address increasing behavior problems. Nearly all the kids with poor behavior were the result of dysfunctional, single-parent families. You are correct to point out failed culture among whites — some of the most disordered children I witnessed were white boys.
            I receive FrontPage Magazine in my inbox to read thoughtful essays written by some really brilliant people. Arnold Ahlert and Daniel Greenfield never fail to disappoint. I was also privileged to see David Horowitz in person several years ago at a local university; he deftly eviscerated the leftist students who thought they would blindside him.
            Unfortunately when I read some of the comments I’m appalled to see ugly and truly racist and anti-Semitic comments. I thought conservatives were better than that; but in the wake of the Zimmerman trial I see the ugliness one usually attributes to the fever swamp of the leftist sites.
            And with that I’m done.

            Hey lucky, Let me apologize for my blunt comments. I imagine that they are a result of a similar frustration with the way things are. I’ve been politically involved all of my life and lately, my patience with the “blind” has grown very short. The Martin affair is almost like the final straw. I mean, everything about the case is illogical. Zimmerman isn’t “white” any more than Obama is white. The whole thing was ginned up (for what reason, I can only guess) from the very beginning by identifying Zimm as a “white” Hispanic. I think it was also assumed that he was Jewish. But the most frustrating to me is that the Black community followed Al Sharpton!! The guy is a multiply proven liar and huckster. It’s almost like if David Dukes were to become the national spokesman for white people on a case like this. Incredible! And never mind that the avalible evidence that was presented could only result in a not guilty verdict. It’s just so frustrating to know that there are so many people who can’t even agree on basic, 2+2=4 type issues. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t think the whole thing was a tragic misunderstanding that could have been avoided, had either Martin or Zimmerman behaved differently. It seem like that is what we should be discussing; what they should have done. rather than taking “sides”. No winners here, only losers. My whole point with the “gutter trash” comment was to break through the PC invisible shield that prevents people from stating the obvious. (Plus I guess I’m a bit cranky in my golden years. I just don’t have the time left to beat around the bush, so to speak) It’s a provocative description for sure, but at least it got the two of us discussing the situation. Google, Dr. Ben Carlson, he can make my point in a more eloquent and palatable manner. Thanks for the conversation,
            Steve

            funny how 73 % of blacks born out of wedlock and 4% ( Black young males are responsible for 50 % of all violent crime . but dont profile that would be to easy ) wher are the black leaders selling their own race down a sewer . detroit is the poster child for democrat black america spread the wealth around how is that wokong for your ignorant asses

        • biggiewmn

          The parents were not the ones who were killed. An innocent baby was killed. Maybe the parents were trash, but that is no excuse for the senseless murder of their child. If that is an excuse, then I know a lot of innocent children that should be put down immediately. And please don’t refer to me, as you did luckycat76, as hun, darlin, sugah, sweetie, or any of those other names that are reserved for people who know me personally.

          • hpe reader

            Biggie, I never said it was an excuse. It was a fact that the child was a lost boy, DOA, regardless of what happened in this particular incident.
            And the reference wasn’t endearment. Get it, Attila?

          • biggiewmn

            You know, that is a horrible thing to say about a baby. Dead on Arrival? So you think this baby was a lost child, that his parents cared nothing for him and the he would not live past childhood? I know you didn’t say that exactly, but that is the inference. Never thought it was an endearment. It is a way to try to make another person feel less than they are. I don’t expect you to understand. Get it, Mao?

          • hpe reader

            biggie, wtf?

          • biggiewmn

            wtf? Really? And just what are you referring to? The comment about him being DOA, which is dead on arrival . And what that inferred? Anyway, why are we having this discussion? What happened was horrible, no matter who or what the parents were. I am sure we both agree on that point, which is really the only point. The murder of an innocent baby.

          • hpe reader

            Oh yes, we do agree on that. I’m just making a poor effort, apparently, in trying to say that nothing will ever change in this type of tragedy until we address the root cause which is a failed culture, be it the black urban gangster or the white red neck.

          • biggiewmn

            And just how can that be accomplished? There is more and more of this kind of senseless and cruel crime. It is getting worse every day. By the way, I am a white red neck and come from a family of white red necks. We do not go out and shoot unarmed women and little children. We do not have anything in common with this type of monster. You don’t hear about roving gangs of white red necks out terrorizing neighborhoods and trashing malls. You don’t hear about white red neck gangs attacking black or hispanic lone persons and beating them until they are almost dead. Of course, there have been cases where some nut has gone off the deep end and drug a poor black man behind his pickup truck. It does happen. But those cases are not the norm and are few and far between. Unfortunately, cases like the one we are discussing are becoming the norm for blacks. And honestly, I don’t want to go blaming the parents every time a grown person takes a gun, a knife, a hammer, whatever and commits murder. Somewhere down the line, the perpetrator has to take responsibility for his crime. As long as there is someone who will say, “poor dear, he comes from a broken home”, gives him an excuse for his behavior, he will keep repeating that behavior. Let’s stop coddling these scum bags and make them pay for their crimes.

          • hpe reader

            Hey, I totally agree with you, and I’m a redneck myself. My point about rednecks is, it does not offend me to me identified that way, nor any other name that would infer I am white. I just don’t understand how Blacks can get so upset by being called a name that referr to them being a black person. It sure doesn’t jive with the Black pride, Black and proud, etc stuff that we are always hearing about. I think the reason is that they are ashamed of their reputation. Isn’t a reputation what profiling is all about anyway? What a world we live in, eh? The PC police are everywhere.

          • biggiewmn

            I think it is all in the way the name is called. If it is with a sneer and meant to put a person down because of his skin color, then yes, it would be ok to be offended. But my 94 year old mother always refers to blacks by “that” name. She does not mean anything negative by it. It is what they were called all her life. I personally take offense at being called whitey, cracker, or an other word when it is meant to degrade. And most of the time when a black person calls a white person one of those names, it is meant to do exactly that. I am not wearing my feelings on my shoulders. I don’t mind being called a red neck because that comes from our neck getting red from WORKING out in the sun. It is actually a compliment. Anyway, we are getting off subject here. So getting back to it. This crime would have been national, maybe international news, had the baby been black and the murderer been white.We would be hearing about it on every newscast on every channel, The race baiters would be out in force, Obama would be claiming that the baby looked like what his grandson would look like, and the mother would be fainting every time a camera was in her face.It is a real comment on this country when a crime like this is ignored while our government is instead trying to find some “dirt” on a man who has already been found innocent in a court of law. Let’s exercise our outrage for a real hate crime that is horrendous and heartless like this one.

  • ReyR

    I understand that such suppression of truth and selective coverage well illustrates self-censorship that is widely practiced in the US media, and not MSM alone. Even personal blogs moderate comments. Such pervasive censorship is proof that America has become a tyranny. For example, I have attempted to express my view in this forum pointing to striking similarities between the current phase of the US, and the way I remember the Soviet Union on the verge of collapse. In my posts, I have not used rude or insulting language, even when other writers tried to insult me. But because people who moderate this forum dislike my idea, they delete my comments. In any Russian media outlet today, if a forum is moderated at all, it’s only to filter out offensive and obscene language. In US media, most outlets don’t even allow the comments option, but if they do, comments are moderated ideologically. With free speech thing of the past, America is entering its terminal stage of lethal denial, just like the USSR on its deathbed.

    Where is Eric Holder,why is he not having the CRS organize protests and rallies with tax dollars?Where’s race-baiters Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and their indignant behavior against the shooting of an innocent child?Where’s CNN and their talking heads filling hours upon hours non-stop with it’s coverage persecuting the shooter before a trial begins?Where’s the rest of the disingenuous left-wing media,too busy now with the Royal baby,too busy to have a “conversation”on race?Will the mother trademark her child’s name and sell merchandise as Trayvon’s mother is doing?
    Such facetious questions and predictable answers.Those who claim to be the social-conscience of the nation have exposed themselves as racist frauds.

  • Charles Martel

    Not sure i know just what is going on here. The child looks completely white. And before someone comes up with the question, “what does it matter”, it matters a great deal especially to me. I am sick of the blacks murdering my people while pubs such as salon continue to denigrate my race.

    Whites are holding vigils like they always do behind closed doors or chat on the Internet because they are too chicken spit to protest in person. They did nothing in Tennessee after the horrific Newsome murders.

    • ReyR

      Thanks for the educational link. Good content, you made my day. I hardly know them from personal experience, but I’m led to believe they share some Muslim mentality. Small wonder they tend to convert recently.

  • tagalog

    Tagalog listens for the sounds of the white mobs destroying all around them as they demonstrate, crying out for “Justice for Antonio.”

    He strains his ears to hear the black voices rising to support the white protestors for justice, as some whites did in the protests for “Justice for Trayvon,” knowing that black people won’t lump all white people into one category, but will perceive any necessary nuances.

    He hears crickets chirping…

  • tired of whiny white men

    Let’s see what should we protest? The alleged killers were arrested as soon as they were found so nothing to protest there. How about the mother giving an alibi? No wait she was arrested too. Uhhhh was it a racially motivated? Wait the mother said they asked for money. So the motive was robbery. Hmmm the only thing I see to protest is this sorry excuse for trying to make this the white zimmerman case. Cause it isn’t.

    Street negroes are violent, feral animals, unfit to live among others–exactly why jews enjoy siccing them on White society. I suppose the kosher diversity mongers could have settled for loosing a bunch of chimps in our inner cities, but negroes have comparable intelligence and come with the added bonus of smelling, sounding, and looking offensive. Tikkun olam at its finest. “White, black, brown, or yellow, we all bleed red!”

  • darkknight3565

    Interestingly, just like in the Zimmerman case, Sherry West’s account of how her baby died has been met with a surprisingly lack of skepticism, especially on Conservative sites such as this one. Instead we again see vitriolic, racist diatribes against African Americans.

    Yet reports are already coming in that the Black teen in question here is innocent, and that the gun residue from the shooting has been found on the baby’s parents. http://tinyurl.com/mhul2yb

    Seems to destroy the “Black man killed my White baby” meme that was used so effectively to inspire such hate talk, doesn’t it? Don’t worry…I won’t bother to wait for an apology.

    If you’re inclined to set aside the name calling, the ad hominems and general childishness for a moment, maybe you can explain why 70% of American Jews voted for Obama in 2012 and 80% did so in 2008. Better yet, explain this: “…individuals who strongly identified as Jews have been the main motivating force behind several highly influential intellectual movements that have simultaneously subjected gentile culture to radical criticism and allowed for the continuity of Jewish identification. Together these movements comprise the intellectual and political left in this century”
    http://www.kevinmacdonald.net/CofCchap6.pdf

    • herb benty

      Look Avi, the Jewish people are a blessing to any nation that they reside in, they have no need to “subject gentile’s culture” to anything. True Christians love the Jewish people and the Jews know it. We get along great. A people that want to subject the West to submission to further their “identification” would be Muslims. I, and many other Americans voted FOR Obama because the MSM hid his marxism until after he was elected. The left-leaning Jews are seeing the continual anti-semitism of the Democratic Party and are waking up though.You do realize that Mr. David Horowitz, whose website this is, is Jewish don’t you? Why are you even here?

      • beezwaxing

        I agree with most everything you’ve said here Herb. But others have made the point that some of Obama’s most unsavory friends are Jews: Valerie Jarrett, D. Axelrod, Lois Lerner, and others. We’re NOT blaming Jews, or at least I’m not. I’m merely pointing out that several key people in the Democrat Party are and always have been reds. In any case, I think comparing some people here to Himmler is a bit of stretch. I mean, really? Heinrich Himmler? Com’on.

  • beezwaxing

    Axelrod and Jarrett, herb, you can’t deny who they are.

    • herb benty

      David Axelrod is Jewish, fine by me, except his leftleaning prism through which he sees the world and typical white self hatred and guilt colors his suitableness for leading the U.S.A. Jarrett is a problem, Iranian born and Obama’s voice to Iran. I suspect an Iranian mole.She tells Obama what to say and how to act. Obama’s rejection of Israel and Canada, Obama turning America’s potential help away from the Iranian young people. It is almost like Obama is protecting Iran in it’s development of nuclear weapons. I suspect Jarrett. ” The Jews are not the problem, unless you consider wanting to survive an unpardonable sin.

      • beezwaxing

        I don’t herb. Believe me. I’m not a Jew, but I am a huge supporter of Israel. I’m sickened to see this country betraying Israel as it is now, now at this moment when the threat to the Israelis is truly existential. And yes, I agree with you, that Axelrod’s problem isn’t that he’s Jewish; his problem is that his ideological motivations have overcome his true self, his true identity. May God have mercy on him.

        • herb benty

          Right on bee, I love Israel, however, I also get a little tired of”anti-semitism”….it gets overused.

  • MarilynA

    Don’t expect Obama or his Justice dept. to intercede in any black (or other minority) on white crimes. Obama only enters to picture to protect blacks accused of attacking whites. His actions in sending Justice Dept. organizers to Florida to organize lynch mobs to go after George Zimmerman, his disgraceful treatment of the victims of the Ft. Hood shooter, while molly coddling the shooter, his failure to send in forces to rescue our people in Benghazi, his blind eye to the mobs of blacks attacking vulnerable whites all over the country….The common fact of all these atrocities is that the victims were all white. Our Racist president does not consider attacks on whites was crimes. He is an anti white racist. He hates whites and his actions prove it.

  • Jamie Jaxx

    Didnt I read that her 21 year old daughter thought mommy had something to do with it, also read she was speaking with gerber life days after the murder about life insurance, and that she had all the days belongins removed from the house, the baby cremated immediately and told the nursing home to keep the ashes. Sorry she sounds like a lunatic and like she had something to do with this Crime.
