Some observers believe that the mainstream media, in conjunction with the Obama Administration, are attempting to keep racial divisions at a maximum – perhaps even to the point of open racial warfare – all in an attempt to further empower the federal government.
In recent days, the American people were horrified by the live, on-camera murder of 24-year-old TV journalist Alison Parker and her 27-year-old cameraman, Adam Ward, in Virginia by former fellow on-air personality Vester Lee Flanagan II, a.k.a. Bryce Williams. Flanagan, who later killed himself as police closed in on him, identified as a gay black man who sent a racist 23-page screed to ABC News the morning he gunned down and killed the two white journalists.
Writing for Breitbart News, editor-at-large Ben Shapiro noted the disparities in the reporting of the incident, and that the mention of the race and sexual preference of everyone involved would not matter were it not made a part of the conversation by the killer himself:
In a 23-page rambling letter sent to ABC News, Williams wrote that the Charleston church shooting in June should have provoked a race war: “Why did I do it? I put a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15…What sent me over the top was the church shooting…You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …(deleted)!!!” According to ABC News, he claimed he had “suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work,” that he had “been attacked by black men and white females,” and that he had been “attacked for being a gay, black man.”
The rage expressed by Flanagan is palpable, as was the outrage expressed by the mainstream media and many African American leaders in the wake of white supremacist Dylann Roof’s Charleston shootings.
Indeed, you might even be able to argue that the Virginia killings were caused by or, at least inspired by, the constant efforts of the MSM and the Obama White House to give voice to racists and apologists on one side of the ethnic and ideological aisle while virtually ignoring other ethnicities and the atrocities committed against them by members of the protected class.
The same is true of Shannon J. Miles, the black man who recently killed a Houston-area sheriff’s deputy execution-style, as the officer was fueling his patrol car.
“We’ve heard Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter. Well, cops’ lives matter, too,” Hickman said.
Again, the mainstream media has been silent on the racial aspects of this case – a black man shooting a white officer – unlike when blacks are killed by white or Hispanic officers, even if they are justified (and most are, according to subsequent investigations and grand jury findings).
With the MSM silent and the White House ignoring such discrepancies, there has been a rise of black militancy, as evidenced in this video posted to Facebook. In it, a black male calling himself “King Noble” talks about the Houston killing being justified, and how now it is “open season on whites” and “white cops.”
As for the murdered reporter and cameraman, Obama seems to have demonstrated little respect for their profession, if not their skin color. As noted by investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, his administration treats many of them like “enemies of the state.”
In fact, the Pentagon has declared that journalists can be enemies in its official rules of war, labeling them “unprivileged belligerents.”
The mainstream media’s bias towards a certain ethnic group and against police officers combined with the president’s own selective displays of outrage and disapproval regarding local incidents has led to assaults on specific demographic groups. And the problem will continue to get worse before it gets better.
