Few Americans outside of Knoxville, Tenn., know about the case of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, two young people who were kidnapped, savagely assaulted, raped, and murdered by people of a different race.

If Christian and Newsom had been black, and they had been raped, tortured, and murdered by a group of white people, the victims’ names would be painfully seared into the national psyche by the media’s saturation coverage of the atrocities and their aftermath.

The reason the case attracted so little media attention was because Christian and Newsom were white. All of their attackers were black. Somehow investigators concluded that racial hostility was not a factor in the crimes.

“If this wasn’t a hate crime, then I don’t know how you would define a hate crime,” said Newsom’s mother Mary. “It may have started out as a carjacking, but what it developed into was blacks hating whites. To do the things they did, they would have to hate them to do that.”

It’s worth looking back at this case now to see what we can learn from it. Two weeks after so-called white Hispanic George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin, a black teenager, there is still no end in sight to the self-righteous pontifications of leftists, politicians, race industry profiteers, and the mainstream media.

They all want us to have a national conversation on race. They’ve been pushing this notion for decades, even though race is discussed all the time everywhere in American society. Even though incidents of race-based discrimination have become almost as rare as four-leaf clovers in recent decades, we are constantly told minorities are little better off now than they were during the era of Jim Crow.

Violent crimes involving persons of different races or ethnic backgrounds tend to become national news only when the victim is a member of a minority group. This is because the radical left-wingers who serve as cultural gatekeepers don’t like to give oxygen to stories that challenge their preconceived, politically correct notions of how society works.

Agenda-setters dislike stories that deviate from their preferred narrative. They will lie and distort in order to shoehorn inconvenient events into their bigoted worldview. This is why Americans have been told over and over again that the Tea Party movement is violent and dangerous, while Occupy Wall Street is gentle and benign. This is why we are told Republicans are greedy, heartless, and racist, while Democrats are selfless, compassionate, and color-blind.

But not all stories can be twisted beyond recognition and used to support the leftist party line.

No amount of spin-doctoring can alter the facts of the case of Christian and Newsom, murdered at the ages of 21 and 23, respectively, so they must be ignored.

The unspeakably abominable crimes committed against the couple received media attention in the Knoxville area but have been subjected to an almost total media blackout at the national level because the facts are inconvenient.

What was done to the two young innocents is stomach-churning.

Last year cable TV commentator Nancy Grace, who previously served as Special Prosecutor in the Atlanta-Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney’s office, told viewers that the particulars of the case were “truly some of the goriest details of murder that I’ve ever heard.”

A prosecutor’s aide fainted during the trial when the county medical examiner provided gruesome details about how the two victims died.

The story began the evening of Jan. 6, 2007, when Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23, who were to attend a party, went missing. Knoxville police said Christian’s sport utility vehicle had been carjacked. (WATE-TV has a helpful, brief summary of the case on its website.)

Newsom’s body was found the next day near railroad tracks. Christian’s bound body was found two days later in the trash. She had been forced to watch her boyfriend being raped.

At trial Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan, who performed autopsies on the two bodies, gave evidence.

Newsom’s unrecognizable body was found face up, his feet and arms bound, she testified. He had been gagged with a sock and blindfolded with a bandana. His upper body was burned and his ankles were charred. Newsom had been shot in the neck and the back. A separate gunshot to his head caused “instantaneous death.”

Newsom’s anus was torn up and bruised, which indicated “anal penetration.” He was sodomized by means of an object before being sodomized by a person. Seminal fluid was found in his body but it did not contain sperm cells. DNA tests were inconclusive as to the origin of the semen. He had walked barefoot to his death, wearing only his underwear. He had been raped one or two hours before he died, Mileusnic-Polchan said.

“This is not just a rape,” she said. “This is the blunt trauma where an object comes in contact and severely damages the tissue. The depth of the injury was so grave there was no way that just the regular rape could inflict this.”

Christian’s body was found in a fetal position, wrapped in five garbage bags in a trash can. A small white plastic bag was found around her head. The young woman died of suffocation, the medical examiner said.

Christian’s body was found to have tears, bruising, and swelling in her genitals and around her anus. There was also evidence of blunt force trauma.

Christian was raped several times, vaginally, rectally, and orally and kicked in the vaginal region before she was forced into the garbage can. There were blows to her head and her arms had been handled with force. Her body showed carpet burns.

Bleach had been poured down Christian’s throat in what appeared to be an effort to destroy any residual DNA that might be used as evidence. DNA from two unidentified men was also found in Christian’s underwear, raising the possibility that two persons not charged in the case were involved in raping her. DNA from the man thought to be the group’s ringleader, LeMaricus Davidson, was found on a vaginal swab from a rape kit that authorities used on Christian’s body.

Davidson, Letalvis Cobbins, and George Thomas were arrested a few days later and charged with murdering the couple. Later, Cobbins’ then-girlfriend, Vanessa Coleman, was also charged with murder.

Davidson, Cobbins, Thomas, and Coleman were convicted in county court under state law. (The county indictment may be viewed here.) A fifth defendant, Eric DeWayne Boyd, was convicted in federal court for being an accessory after the fact and hiding Davidson. All five defendants were black.

When the murders were first reported, the celebrated syndicated columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. mocked white people who complained about the lack of popular outrage over the crimes. He ended one of his screeds with, “Cry me a river.”

Pitts, who recently began a virtually fact-free column with “I am Trayvon Martin,” wrote in 2007 that the Christian-Newsom murders generated “mewling noises from that subset of my white countrymen who feel put upon by big, bad racial minorities.” He described such put-upon whites as part of a “lunatic fringe.”

When Obama was inaugurated for the second time this past January, Pitts opined absurdly that Obama, who rarely misses an opportunity to inject race into even the most random of public discussions, had “assiduously ignored” race and was “mute” on the subject.

Pitts, by the way, is no marginal figure. He won the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary in 2004. His views more or less represent the journalistic mainstream in this country.

Al Sharpton, who has eclipsed Jesse Jackson Sr. as America’s leading race hustler, didn’t take up the case of Christian and Newsom. He did take up the cause of the late Trayvon Martin, creating a firestorm of controversy where none existed. More than anyone else, Sharpton’s Alinskyite agitating pushed authorities in Sanford, Fla., to pursue second-degree murder charges against George Zimmerman. Sharpton claimed racism was a factor even though local and federal investigations failed to uncover even a shred of racial animus on Zimmerman’s part.

But an absence of evidence never stops a dedicated community organizer from stirring the pot.

Sharpton, a racial arsonist known for leading angry followers into violent confrontations against whomever he happens to be targeting at the moment, became a national figure in 1987 by participating in the Tawana Brawley case, a racially charged gang rape hoax. Sharpton falsely accused prosecutor Steve Pagones of participating in the gang rape of a young black woman that never actually happened. Pagones won a libel judgment against Sharpton.

It’s not like cases involving forcible sodomy make Sharpton uncomfortable. If the victim isn’t white, he leaps into action.

Sharpton and his National Action Network launched a crusade for justice for Abner Louima, a black immigrant, after he was assaulted and sodomized with a broom handle by New York City police officers in 1997. Louima was actually a victim and the perpetrators were held accountable.

Sharpton, whose transgressions against his fellow man have been ably documented by Carl F. Horowitz of the National Legal and Policy Center, also took up the case of Michael Mineo, a young tattoo artist reportedly of Puerto Rican descent on one side.

Mineo is an unsavory character whom the left-wing Huffington Post described as “a pot-smoking thief and a gang member who has a Crips tattoo across his stomach to prove it.”

Mineo’s ordeal, which turned out to be fantasy, took place the same year Christian and Newsom were cruelly killed. Mineo claimed police sodomized him with a police baton. Originally he claimed that the instrument of torture was a police radio antenna.

The police officers were acquitted at trial and Mineo’s civil suit against them failed. Mineo’s civil case was so weak he was ordered to pay the three officers’ legal expenses.

In the end Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom are likely to be footnotes at best in the history books, remembered only in their communities. They didn’t have publicists like Sharpton and Pitts to shape their public image.

    The criminals did not get the death penalty. As a matter of fact, some of the convictions were thrown out because of a terrible judge and now are being retried. The criminals’ family members insisted their kids were innocent. The media portrayed the victims as drug addicts. Who were trying to buy drugs. I guess that made their horrible deaths somehow justified.

      Just for the record, they weren’t trying to buy drugs.

    There was a case around two decades ago….of two white Missouri teens who hopped a freight train to go a few miles down the road to visit friends. They hopped off at the wrong neighborhood, were immediately set upon by the teen children of the black residents and both were beaten to death. The white-washed police report was that they were merely “in the wrong place at the wrong time.” It is a travesty of our age that black-on-white crime is routinely sanitized of any racial impetus.

    Every gang rape — every stranger rape, every serial “date” rapist (they exist, it’s an M.O.), every mugging, every aggravated assault of a stranger, virtually every stranger-on-stranger violent crime, involves a level and type of identity-based selection animus and an infliction of threat or violence that meets or rises far beyond the level of what gets prosecuted as “hate” in cases brought every day by the DOJ and state and local police acting under DOJ guidance.

    The mere existence of these laws have delegitimated law enforcement in its entirety, while the empowerment of the hate crimes industry leads to the persecution of people like Zimmerman.

    In 1997, in the rooms where application of these laws was being hashed out, leftist activists openly discussed ways to keep black men from being charged with hate because their crime rates would result in black men being the most prevalent and most violent hate criminals. They prevent this from happening entirely through differential enforcement and a blanket refusal to discuss enforcement protocols — abetted by the media. I got a few people to admit to the astonishing inequity built into these rules — someone from the SWC, and Carla Arranaga, an LA DA picked to represent the U.S. on hate at the UN — but soon, the silence was lockstep.

    There was enormous concern that women — of all races — would become the most prevalent hate victims on the basis of stranger rape alone (this was pre-9/11, a nationality bias hate crime against Americans), and these activists, whose real goal was to keep the image of lynching and white prejudice at the forefront of any crime discussion, couldn’t possibly have rape victims count as victims of hate. So “gender bias” was quietly reserved for transvestites and similar gender-disordered folks, and Kim Gandy of the NOW helped cover-up the exclusion of heterosexual women.

    Eric Holder lied, Elena Kagan lied, the ADL and Abe Foxman lied, and the SPLC lied. They said these laws would be applied equally — though the ADL did write in 1996 that there needed to be particular efforts to ensure violence against women didn’t “distract” and “overwhelm” the system.

    If you just counted the stranger rapes where gangs of men videotaped their victims (like lynch mob memorabilia in a few awful cases a century ago), or who wrote or carved misogynistic speech on victims’ bodies (for real, not like Tawana), or who used hate speech (what speech isn’t gender-bias or sometimes race-bias hate speech during a rape?) — then those would be the most prevalent serious hate crimes, tens of thousands a year. if you counted serial rapist/killers of women (Kagan under Clinton cleverly kiboshed that) then that would become the “Red Record” of the new lynching era. And don’t forget serial rapist-killers who pick men and boys — but then there would be too many gay men identified as hate criminals, and you can’t possibly have that: the HRC would complain. So Alfred Brisette, and all the recent animals in Cleveland and the few hundred others who pick women or men or children of the streets to torture to death every year get a pass by the “justice activists” with their weepy candle-bearing parades.

    On the other end of severity, if you counted all ethnic, racist, and sexist slurs the way certain slurs (Islamophobic, anti-black racist, anti-semitic, homophobic, anti-Hispanic) get counted by the authorities in pure speech events charged as “hate intimidation,” then you’d have to be arresting thousands every day and quite a few prominent people, including Weiner’s communications officer . . . and two front-runners in that race.

    Few know how frequently these lesser charges for very minor speech/simple assault get deployed — then the incidents magnified by DOJ intervention.

    And if you counted every rioter or mob basher who committed a crime — no matter how minor, even simple intimidation or vandalism or trespassing (as activists in Florida are doing at the Governor’s office) — then there would be hundreds or thousands of anti-white hate crimes in the wake of the Zimmerman verdict.

    The statistics are the point. The rest is pure political power, enforced through deception. Most importantly, if you counted 9/11, Oklahoma City, and Major Hasan’s crimes, then anti-American hatred would be responsible for virtually all the worst single-incident hate crimes since these laws were passed.

    We certainly couldn’t have that. The SPLC won’t have it, and they are empowered to be the deciders.

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    I can’t help but wonder how long white people in the US will tolerate this kind of obvious coverup. And I wonder when a crime is bad enough to demand executions. If this case wasn’t, what case will be? This happened more than 5 years ago and FP is just getting around to it now? It should be obvious that a race war is already underway in the US. Blacks keep going after the small and weak and outnumbered (typical guerilla tactics) to perpetuate more and more outrage. Will white Americans wait until all of their children and grandparents have been attacked to react? Or is the tipping point approaching for a period of hideous retribution? Blacks are begging for a race war that they can’t possibly “win”. Their hatred of anyone who is not black (and plenty of them who are) is obvious. Only the leftist media chooses to sugar coat this turd. Everyone else looks away, for the moment.

They don’t understand that “Hispanic” comes from “Hispano”, which means “Spanish speaking”…that language from those white guys from Spain.
            Mexico believes in the Reconquista…they wrongly believe the West belongs to them.

            You forget that Spain is right across the strait of Gibraltar from North Africa; thus Spain has been invaded several times by people of African blood and dark skin. So your statement that “Most Hispanics have white blood…” doesn’t quite ring true. While many may have white blood, I’d guess that at least 50% of Hispanics don’t have white blood, and their skin is generally darker than that of most whites.

          • Courageous

            Your statement is mostly true, but I like to put it like this, most countries discovered by Columbus were inhibited by Indians, most Spanish conquistadors were mostly white and a few other nationalities such as Italians, etc so yes the combination of native Indians & Spaniards makes us a tab more colorful than plain white, but at the same token we also had black slaves brought-in and throughout the century they have missed as well!

            You are a complete moron. Have you ever been to Spain? I have, and there are thousands and thousands of blonde haired, blue eyed Spaniards.

            North Africa, from the time of at least the Roman Republic onward to the Muslim incursion, was the bailiwick of Greeks and Romans as well as native peoples, who were not black like the sub-Saharan people. North Africans freely mingled -and intermarried- with people from the Levant, and from Greece and Rome. North Africa was a Roman Catholic stronghold until the late 8th Century A.D. Saint Augustine came from there.

            Yup. Most don’t know that though. Mexicans think they are indigenous.
            Of course, the Indians in this hemisphere were actually orientals that came across the Great Berring Strait 10,000 years ago.
            Some historians think some Japanese came over in boats and landed on the west coast of South America. They look Japanese and their art is very similar to Japanese art.
            I saw on the history channel last year that they have found European artifacts on our eastern seaboard that dates back over 10,000 years. That means whites got here first. They think they followed the ice flow and landed in Virginia at about the time the Orientals were coming across the Strait.
            They think the whites just died out, or moved west and eventually intermingled with the Orientals as the Orientals came South and East, or the Orientals killed of the whites.

      White people have been indoctrinated to feel guilty for something they had nothing to do with and then you have all the blacks telling how bad the white people are and always have been the white devil. Black professors calling for the extermination of the white race, black internet warriors talking smack about the white race disappearing and they are steadily rewriting history. I can tell you right now that white patience and kindness is just about exhausted. I do not hate black people but I will not hesitate to put every single one of them in a body bag to protect my family, my race and my country. The difference between whites and blacks is that whites actually hit what we are shooting at rather than the neighbors 5 year old kid and we do not do drive bys because we do not want to miss our mark or hurt an innocent bystander. Keep on calling for a race war and you will get one that you cannot win. Keep killing whites and the government won’t be able to protect you all.

    George Thomas was retried this past May, I believe, and, as the scene was described in the article I read, sat there at the defense table shaking his head as the verdict was read. Really.

    Search “knock out game” or “polar bear hunting” to find out how many white and Asian people have been killed by black teens and twenty somethings for fun.

    The first slaves sold in America were white. 1618. Does anyone know that? Of the 10 million or so Africans sold as slaves in the New World, over 4 million were sold in Brazil. Only 450,000 or so were sold in America (according to Henry Louis Gates, Jr.) Does anyone know that? Most of the white slaves were Irish men, women, and children or orphans taken from the streets of London. The exact number of white slaves sold is difficult to determine since the English kept the information suppressed. In the1690s, 100,000 Irish boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 16 were sold in the West Indies, but the exact number sold in the US isn’t known. Some place the number between 1 and 2 million.

    What is known is that the first slave owner in America was a black man with an indentured servant; he went to court to be able to keep him permanently. What is known is that the largest slave owner in South Carolina in 1860 was a black man, William Ellison, who was a freed slave himself. What is known is that 28% of slave owners in New Orleans were black, according to the 1860 census. What is known is that the free blacks fought for the Confederacy were fighting against abolitionism.

    What is known is that reparations have already been paid, were paid 150 years ago in the blood of northern white boys that soaked into the soil of fields all across the South.

    It’s enough already. No one in this country owes anyone else anything. It’s time for everyone to put their big boy and big girl panties on and get over themselves .

      More than 60,000 whites have been murdered since Mandela was freed and became president. The media hails him as a savior of his people and act like he was in prison for trying to help them. NOT… He and 19 others were arrested for sabotage, subversion and working for Moscow which had an invasion force ready. Mandela was one of the 20 people then there were 9 communist Jews, one of which rose to power in the government and had enough pull along with the international communists to get Mandela released. Mandela is a terrorist and is responsible for several bombings back then. Mandela is on video with a bunch of blacks dancing in the streets singing about exterminating the whites. Mandela’s wife made a speech wherein she stated her favorite treatment of whites was “necklacing” this term means to put a gasoline filled tire around the neck of the victim and ignite it. After she made this speech, over 3,000 whites died by this method. The bottom line is, they cannot win a war because they do not have the skill but they can overwhelm by numbers to make up for their lack of military prowess. That is why the ANC is working double-time to disarm the whites in SA. Now that we know they seriously want to exterminate the white race, we cannot afford to show them mercy when the time comes. If it in fact comes, they must be completely eradicated from this continent. The sad part is, there are actually some great black people with hearts of gold. Just really good people. They too live in fear of their own militant brothers who have no consideration for human life whatsoever. The Taliban recently uploaded a video of a 10 year old boy working for 10 to 15 minutes with a butcher knife to cut a mans head off while his body was still twitching. The child did not hesitate in the least and I am fairly certain this wasn’t his first kill. When he made his initial cut it was very professional and since a man was pulling his head back using his beard, the throat was very well exposed and split right open. This is the religion of peace that Obama keeps talking about and this is why he and most other black militants are converting to Islam. No appreciation for life and no desire to be better. They all want an anarchist society where they can beat their women freely and rape whomever they wish and generally live like savage animals. There comes a time when you have to put a rabid dog down and that time is drawing ever close.

    When the KKK came to Knoxville to organize a hate crime rally in this case, it was referred to as a “White Supremist Hate group.” Why weren’t the black groups and justice dept. agents who descended upon Florida and were actually trying to organize lynch mobs to go after Zimmerman and his family labeled “Hate Groups” too? Because that is what they are. They are every bit as despicable as the KKK. Maybe if we all start calling them what they are, the news media will pick up on it.

  • Donald J DaCosta

    What’s the label equivalent for “racism” when it’s committed against a racial majority; because that’s the perverse new “racism” that’s replaced the old. Martin Luther King’s dream, when men would be judged by their character rather than their skin color, is rapidly fading to black, no pun intended. In fact, what has emerged since the civil rights movement, is a significant, perhaps majority of the black community convinced that brutal racism in reverse is their just and only reward for the sins of white generations more than twice removed from the American scene. The fact that white racists are now a distinct, discredited, disrespected fringe of American society is apparently not enough to
    expunge the guilt for this American tragedy from modern white society who must be forced to suffer the same injustice the civil rights movement fought to end, for blacks. It was the beginning of the end of racism for white society who saw the evil it represented, but apparently did nothing to end the hatred that’s been nurtured and propagated among the present day generation of blacks who see only the white guilt of the past and not the equivalence of the evil of
    the reverse racism they now fervently practice. A more misguided, immoral attitude could not be forthcoming from a society ostensibly steeped in a love for the G_d they so ardently worship.

    For allowing this perversion of Martin Luther King’s dream, the black community, politically, vocally and violently, express their gratitude to the Jesse Jackson’s, Al Sharpton’s and the feckless, clueless, white and black racial hate
    mongers, for keeping their grievous sense of victimhood alive. Self awareness, self reliance and personal responsibility are not in their vernacular. Those who are in this camp have been taught and convinced that all their personal, social and economic woes are caused by the white man; most especially the republican white man.

    The increasingly numerous incidents of the obvious inclusion of blacks into the mainstream mix of successful, American society, from the hard working, self sufficient blue collar workers to Herman Cain, Barak Hussein Obama, Eric Holder, etc., etc., etc. is never praised or promoted. Instead many of these successful blacks, especially those with a conservative point of view, are
    marginalized; not “down with the struggle.” The message? Stay “down with the struggle” if you expect to be a welcome member of the growing grievance club.

    What will it take? Mainstream society needs a megaphone to counter the race industry narrative with stories like the one in this article, as they occur, and there are many. They need to be told loudly, repeatedly and with the righteous conviction and indignation they deserve until the left’s regurgitations and
    heartless, spineless, hypocritical sarcasms are seen as such and fade from the consciousness at large. These people are commanding center stage because few are able to successfully challenge their narrative with what are obviously far more egregious offenses of black on black and black on white crimes such as this one. But like all the other stories such as this, they get little play in the media most folks get their news from, and therein lies the biggest problem.

    • Avi Marranazo

      I agree with you, but think you’re missing the point. The reason for the anti-White bias in government and their media is to dispossess, displace and ultimately eliminate White people from the country we founded and built “for ourselves and for our posterity”. That’s why it’s not PC for Whites to identify and organize as Whites; that’s why even fabricated cases of White “racism” receive more notoriety than real-life barbarism like this. It’s the intellectual milieu that dominates the media, academia and our age.

    • OfficialPro

      it’s a messed up world indeed where a black person can beat up or kill a white person and get off lightly (or scot-free) and not have to worry about mass media exposure, and be justified by the Identity Politics crowd on the basis of “some white guy called me a n****r”!

      I’ve got news for people like that. The more they lash out for insignificant (in the grand scheme of things) violently for things that are NOT unprovoked assaults on their person, the more they’re going to be seen as n****rs! It’s a self-fullfilling prophecy!

    Although I don’t live there now, I grew up in Knoxville and still have family there so I go back fairly frequently. From the time I first heard about this case, I read every article as well as the police reports. I watched a good portion of the trials. What these people did is sub-human. They do not belong in the human race. There are 2 points here that are lurking in the background but I think are extremely important… one..ALL of these guys did all of these horrible things to this young couple without being freaked out on PCP or acid or some other freaky drug. It was reported that there were signs of marijuana and alcohol, but no mention of them being “out of their mind on drugs”. So, for all intense and purposes, they were “a little buzzed”. How does a person even think in these terms and be human? Two…it was rumored that the families really didn’t want this to be put out there in the national media for fear that Sharpton and Jackson WOULD come to town and stir the pot and then the thugs wouldn’t get what they deserved. By it being low-key, they ALL got what was coming to them…either life without parole or the death penalty. If you could have seen Channon’s Daddy, it would’ve broken your heart. He was in court every day and would just rock back and forth while staring at whoever was on trial that day. I was just waiting for him to hit his tipping point and jump the idiot on trial. I really don’t know how you survive something like this….I really don’t. And to beat it all…the judge on the case…was high on pain killers and paying convicts in his drug program for them! So after all this ordeal, the thugs had to be retried when all that came to light! What a creep he is to have done that to those families after all they had already been through!! This case has really hardened me when it comes to race. I wasn’t brought up to be racist, but anymore…ya gotta prove to me that you’re worthy before I won’t think that way. As far as I’m concerned they’ve earned it!

    I do remember this case and it was awful. Just looking at the faces of the guilty makes me know pure evil comes in all colors. Perhaps some one should bring it to light again as a definite hate crime. It’s tense here in the good old U.S.A. On all frontiers.

    Actually he was probably confusing Africa with the Muslim invasion and occupation of Spain that would have resulted in some darker skinned Spaniards. But unless they converted back to Christianity they all were forced out. So there are probably very few with Arab blood in Spain.

    “When the murders were first reported, the celebrated syndicated columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. mocked
    white people who complained about the lack of popular outrage over the
    crimes. He ended one of his screeds with, “Cry me a river.”

    Pitts, who recently began
    a virtually fact-free column with “I am Trayvon Martin,” wrote in 2007
    that the Christian-Newsom murders generated “mewling noises from that
    subset of my white countrymen who feel put upon by big, bad racial
    minorities.” He described such put-upon whites as part of a “lunatic
    fringe.”

    I believe we are talking about the racial injustices and the fact that thousands of cases of brutal and vicious black on white crimes go unreported because of the left’s agenda. They have to protect their voting block. If anyone would bother to read Marx’s works (or Obama’s for that matter) wherein he speaks of how to start a revolution by finding the downtrodden, disenfranchised, angry and all the lazy lowlifes that think they are owed something they didn’t work for and keeping them agitated, then destroy the middle class, so that we are left with the rich and the poor, who will of course demand everything the rich have and oh yeah, he even mentions how to devalue money and destroy the economy… PRINT MONEY around the clock!! Go figure. Obama/Osama was a damned good student of his communist mother, father, mentor, grandparents and every other relationship he has ever had. No wonder democrats and unions and the communist party and the media worked so hard getting him elected… He is one of them.. But he is also a racist with power now. The only job he has ever had was as a community agitator and that is all he has done since taking office.
