If I Had A Daughter.........

Barack Obama infamously inserted himself into the Zimmerman-Martin situation with the words, "If I had a son.....he'd........look like Trayvon."  With those words, he got he ball rolling on the racial component of a self-defense case that had no racial overtones.  Now, after a fair trial and adjudication of the evidence resulting in a verdict of not guilty, the usual suspects, the race hustlers and peddlers of racial division, "Revs." Al Sharpton and Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson have picked up the ball and run with it.  They are demanding that the Obama Justice Department bring civil-rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman.  Included in this push for a second bite at the race-baiting apple are the NAACP, several national liberal commentators and congresspeople and other "civil rights" organizations.

If at first you don't succeed, protest and sue until you get your way.

With all the consternation over the "violation of Trayvon's rights", it's curious that none among these most compassionate, concerned, individuals dedicated to "justice" for all that the following story has gotten little or no national attention.

If I had a daughter.........

In a story out of Austin, Texas a 13yr old runaway was abducted, transported to a remote location and repeatedly gang-raped by between 10 and 13 men, most illegal aliens.  The group cheered as they took turns assaulting the girl over a 24hr period, even filming the assault on their cell phones! So far, there have only been two arrests, a pair of Mexican nationals in the country illegally. Unless you do a search for this story or happen to listen to talk radio you have heard absolutely nothing about this.

There haven't been any pronouncements from the White House on their commitment to "get to the bottom of this", to "not rest until those responsible have been brought to justice".  No one has demanded that Eric Holder mobilize the resources of the DOJ for this little girl the way they have demanded "justice for Trayvon".  As far as the national press and the regime occupying the White House, it's a non-issue.  Perhaps because it goes against the narrative that an influx of illegal aliens is somehow of benefit to the country?  Perhaps because it puts the lie to the claim that all the illegals are only here out of a desire to work and "build a better life for their families"?

Open your eyes, Mr. President.  If you're going to make the claim "If I had a son...." you have to also claim the corresponding "If I had a daughter.....".  In the absence of Secret Service, in the absence of an intact family, in the absence of a society governed by the rule of law, it could just as easily been your daughter.  It just wouldn't be as politically advantageous (unless, of course, she was assaulted by "white" Hispanics).

Oh, speaking of "white Hispanics", there's a new wrinkle in the ongoing Zimmerman saga.

During the run-up to the trial--and during--NBCNews was busted for selectively editing the phone call between George Zimmerman and the Sanford,FL PD, multiple times, in order to portray Mr. Zimmerman as a racist, and as the aggressor.  Now, it appears that ABCNews has decided to try their hand at media manipulation.

In an ABCNews interview, "Juror B29" tells correspondent Robin Roberts that Zimmerman "Got away with murder".  That pull quote has since gone viral, as they say.  It's been promoted all over the national media as "See?!  Even the juror thinks he was guilty!"  Problem is, that's not entirely true.  It seems that ABC heavily, and selectively, edited the full recording of the interview and has presented the Juror's statements falsely.  Or at least, out of context.  This isn't coming from some "right-wing" outlet like FoxNews, it's coming from the usually reliably left-leaning

The writer of the article, Mr. William Saletan, points out several problems with the "Zimmerman got away with murder!" narrative:

1.  The phrase "got away with murder" was put into the jurors mouth, prompted by Robin Roberts.

2.  The juror stands by the verdict "based on the law".  She judged according to evidence, not emotion.

3.  She thinks the case should never have gone to trial.  "......this was a publicity stunt."

Mr. Saletan goes on to list several more points that have been overlooked by the mainstream media in the promotion of the official storyline of "racial profiling" and "injustice".

ABCNews has still not released the unedited interview video or transcripts.
