I am sick to death of hearing about the Trayvon Martin Case.
But I am so appalled by the naked racism in regard to the media treatment of this case that I must speak out, even at the risk of being misunderstood by a few closed minded people who can’t think for themselves.
For I believe a media lynch mob has used this case to inflame racial hatred and widespread horrific violence.
Before I go into the details of the Trayvon Martin case, I want to take you on short historical survey of how cries for justice and human rights are used to repeatedly justify horrific violations of human rights.
We can start with the strange case of Iraq, where a million men, women and children were murdered in a war supposedly meant to end human rights crimes committed by Saddam Hussein.
In addition, millions more Iraqi men, women and children were wounded, burned and maimed, crippled and blinded.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans were wounded, harmed, maimed, burned, crippled or killed as well.
The Pentagon now admits that over 400,000 Americans suffered traumatic brain injury.
All this human suffering and loss in war called “Operation Iraqi Freedom” was heavily promoted by the mass media as a war for human freedom and rights.
Long before that war started, in the name of human rights, we launched an embargo of food and even medicine to Iraq.
A million innocent Iraqis died, mostly children and the elderly. Many more innocents suffered.
Leslie Stahl of 60 minutes asks:
“We have heard a half a millions children have died, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. Is the price [to cause problems for Saddam Hussein] worth it?”
The then American Secretary of State, the very Zionist Madeline Albright answers:
“I think this is a very hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it.”
It was “worth it” to kill 500,000 kids in order to save them from evil Saddam.
In answer to Madeline Albright, would you think it is “worth it” if somebody killed your own child, or your own husband or wife, or mother and father or millions of fellow Americans in the name of their human rights?
And in the end, it turned out Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction.
