Justice is Blind, the Justice Brothers are Morons

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed of a day when his children would be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Yet Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and others of their ilk refuse to let race diminish as an issue in post-modern society. I posit that they aren't interested in equality or justice. They are interested in sewing discord and in maintaining a constituency with a victim mentality who believe they need cultural saviors.

The Jena Six is the latest race-related debacle into which the Rev'ren Sharpton has insinuated himself. Somehow, he has drawn a parallel between three white guys stringing a rope noose in a tree (sans a human IN the noose) and six hoodlums who actually attacked a white teenager with malice. Clearly, they intended to kill him. In my personal experience, six-on-one are pretty sorry odds unless the one has a way to equalize the playing field. (Don't even get me started on that.)

The AP writes that: The Rev. Al Sharpton said it could be the beginning of the 21st century's civil rights movement, one that would challenge disparities in the justice system. What disparities? Stringing a noose in a tree as compared to trying to kill someone??? One is metaphorical, albeit reprehensible, and the other is literal. Hanging the noose is akin to hate-speech. Trying to kill someone is a crime. I suppose the prosecutor could've made the leap to "hate speech" had he thought he could get convictions, but as he said, he didn't prosecute the students accused of hanging the nooses because he could find no Louisiana law under which they could be charged. "I cannot overemphasize what a villainous act that was. The people that did it should be ashamed of what they unleashed on this town," Walters said.

Thousands have come from all around to participate in Al's protest du jour. When are people going to realize that they are being used? Manipulated. Coerced. Al and Jesse are stooges for the race-baiting liberal left of the Democratic party. If they don't have real victims, they create them with their rhetoric. And the media eats it up like candy. Our guaranteed right to freedom of speech is a wonderful thing - until it gets abused. I find irony in law enforcement tolerating this kind of rally which has the potential to incite riotous behavior, yet a few states away, they Tazer a college student for lambasting John Kerry with questions. If anything, Kerry deserved to be questioned, even if I couldn't stand the two hour long monotone answer that would follow. And the Jena Six deserved to be prosecuted for trying to kill someone. And the fools who strung a noose should be cultural outcasts with mandates to attend diversity education and participate in classroom sessions to denounce their actions.

Justice for all? Not anymore. That's an ideal target and we have sorely missed the mark. Jesse and Al need to pack their carpetbags and take their disenfranchisement dog and pony show elsewhere. Intelligent Americans are tired of the antics. By the way, what are those two Rev'rens of? Disharmony? Discord? Race? Certainly not the all-encompassing love of people irrespective of their lot in life or the color of their skin. Gee, sounds like Jesse and Al need to read about Jesus' take on things.
