No one recruited Dylann Roof. His foray into violent white nationalism arose from a single internet search engine query.“The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case,” Roof explained in a journal, referring to the 2012 shooting of Martin, an unarmed black teenager, by a vigilante.
These words were read aloud to Roof last month, during his trial on 33 federal crimes, in a South Carolina courtroom accented with dark wood paneling. The voice delivering Roof’s innermost thoughts back to him was Brittany Burke, the crime scene investigator who had documented his carnage.On June 17, 2015, Roof walked into Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. He sat down and listened to a Bible study, then pulled out a handgun and killed nine attendees.
The spark that ignited his violent fury came to him in a web search after he learned of Martin and the man who shot him, George Zimmerman. Read more.
There are super-predators out there, some have badges and some don’t. You as Black parents cannot allow your children go out in the world and be ill prepared. Nothing is more fucked up as having anniversary remembrance for death of your child at the hand of these rabid racist.
A man who fired a single bullet at George Zimmerman’s pickup truck has been found guilty by a Florida court of attempted second-degree murder and will face a minimum of 20 years. The two had a long-standing feud, and the shooter, Matthew Apperson, tried to plead self-defense, saying that Zimmerman flashed his gun before firing. Zimmerman and Apperson’s feud was related to the Black Lives Matter movement.
On Monday morning, a judge sentenced Matthew Apperson, the 38-year-old Florida man convicted of shooting at George Zimmerman, to 20 years in prison. In the courtroom on Monday, Zimmerman’s description of Apperson is irony at its finest.
We’ve touched on O.J.’s If I Did It before, but we haven’t mentioned exactly how much of a scam it was, even for the five or so Juice fans still left in the world. The book contained long passages outlining how Nicole Brown’s wild single lady behavior would one day “be the death” of O.J., attempting to set up the heinous murders as some kind of justified self-defense. When it comes time to hold good to the book’s title, though, O.J. shows up at Nicole’s house and … conveniently blacks out, only to wake up standing next to her dead body, covered in blood.
As tactlessly garish as the premise was, the book didn’t even attempt to deliver on its promise. No one could possibly get a single iota of enjoyment out of this shameless cash grab … except for the family of the other victim, Ron Goldman. They went to court and got 90 percent of the profits of the book. They also added their own commentary and redesigned the cover.
This wasn’t the last time Simpson tried to profit from his “fame,” though. His old pal Donald Trump has admitted that he tried to get Simpson on Celebrity Apprentice, despite being confident that he was guilty, and he said he believed that O.J. “would have done it.” However, NBC immediately vetoed the hell out of the idea, so here’s hoping that O.J. at least lands a spot on his friend’s cabinet as consolation prize.
The Left Couldn’t Take Your Guns, So They Made Defending Yourself Social Suicide
This is kind of a startling, yet interesting, idea that I just heard Stefan Molyneux discuss.
Essentially, since Republicans and Conservatives have largely stopped the Left from taking our firearms and our right to defend ourselves, they have opted instead to use the media and shaming tactics to make it so that the act of defending yourself, even if it is completely and perfectly justified, will see you branded as the instigator of violence and as someone who got off the hook unfairly.
We’ve seen this happening for years now, in fact.
It started with George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. It was an open-and-shut case of self defense as far as the local police department was concerned. But then social media and the mainstream media got involved. Suddenly, the prevailing narrative was that George Zimmerman was a white racist who had stalked innocent Trayvon Martin and shot him in cold blood. The reality was that Trayvon Martin had attacked Zimmerman first, but reality had no effect on the narrative. Even after Zimmerman was found not guilty the narrative maintained itself.
And we’ve seen many more cases since then.
Mike Brown, Korryn Gaines, and more. All justified shootings, but all led to the complete demonization and ostracization of the people who were either defending themselves or defending others from who the left and the media deemed was the true “victim”.
Perhaps that is why nobody has defended themselves from these violent rioters on the left yet. Because we *know* that the media will spin it. They will selectively edit the footage, if there is any, of the attack to make it seem as though the person on the right who is defending themselves was actually the initial aggressor.
As Stefan said, “You’ll be living a life that you’ll almost wish you hadn’t saved in the first place”.
Black people are expected to constantly go out of their way to make sure they don’t appear threatening. Meanwhile, George Zimmerman never had to care in the slightest that carrying a gun while following a teenager home from the store would make him feel threatened.
Black people are expected to obey if they don’t want to get hurt. Meanwhile, society defends George Zimmerman even though he disobeyed the 911 dispatcher.
Black people’s criminal records are literally used as reasons why they deserve to die. Meanwhile, George Zimmerman is still seen as a hero despite assaulting a police officer and pulling a gun on his intimate partner.
But tell me again how racism doesn’t exist anymore.
