The post title is a bonus alternate shorter. I’m not kidding.
Jack Cashill, American No You’re the Racists:
Editgate, Spittlegate, and the Left’s “Race-Gating” Tradition
Hey, remember Jack Cashill? Well, it seems ol’ Jack has realized that he can’t just rant about Time-Traveling Bill Ayers every single week at his new gig at Our Favorite Material Generator.
Luckily for him, generating racist conspiracy theories that explain why inconvenient reality should be ignored is a skillset that can be applied to a number of events.
And Bob help us all, he’s decided to apply said skills to the Trayvon Martin case… I think I need to ready a cyanide capsule for this one.
Roll the shorter:
- It’s really mean of liberal racists to beat up on poor Mr. Zimmerman simply because of a word he may or may not have said on his 911 call. It’s not like anything else happened. Oh also, Waco.
Honestly, I’m surprised it’s taken him this long to jump in. I mean, when you’ve spent the last 4 years trying to explain why Time Traveling Bill Ayers erases Birth Certificates, school records, childhood friends, the State of Hawaii, birth anouncements, and an semblance of common sense, why not try tackling the shooting of a teenager in cold blood?
Besides, the “plight” of George Zimmerman seems to hit a little to closely to home for the deluded racist prone to acts of fantasy.
But we’ll let him get into that.
The phrase “Editgate” established itself virtually overnight. It fit so well.
You don’t say?
Well, why don’t we see for ourselves? Google seems to say it’s mostly been the rejects trying to keep Breitbart’s empire floating (and yeah, the irony of anyone even remotely connected to Breitbart trying to accuse someone else of malicious editing has not been lost on me) plus you and a handful of other Lifers in the Birther Parade.
Truly, it is the Law of the Land from Sea to Shining Sea!
This useful compound merges “edit,” in reference to NBC’s incendiary editing of George Zimmerman’s 911 call, and “gate,” the catch-all suffix used to describe a corrupt mess of deception and obfuscation.
Um, -gate isn’t a suffix denoting scandal. It was the name of the fucking hotel (The Watergate) where Nixon sent a bunch of Secret Agent wannabes to try and break in. It’s only even remotely connected to scandal because said morons got caught and the resulting investigation kinda sorta discovered the Dirty Trick that finally was able to take that bastard down.
And yes, the Right thwacking -Gate on the end of all their Not-a-Scandals and wild conspiracy theories totally disguises that all these half-hearted witch hunts aren’t just poorly thought out “revenges” for Ol’ Nixy finally getting caught.
And the fact that the media hasn’t laughed every one of them out of the building, but has instead been all-too-eager to have their own -Gate is probably one of the strongest evidences that the “liberal media” shit is complete and utter bullshit.
Also, apropos of nothing, but the actual Watergate investigation saw amazingly comprehensive tracking of the money trail and multiple leads in one of the greatest examples of investigative journalism in history, whereas all the Right seems to do is whine about the kerning until the media throws them a bone to shut them up.
Already “Editgate” is being used more expansively to include other distortions in the Trayvon Martin case, including ABC’s compression of the police videotape to obscure Zimmerman’s head wound and CNN’s absurdly imaginative translation of the Zimmerman word “cold” into the nearly archaic “coons.”
Ah, there’s that old Cashill magic! Verifiable evidence everyone has access to proves how full of shit the conservative case is? Proof of a dastardly conspiracy to obscure the truth from every known record.
Obviously on the Long-form Videotape, Zimmerman’s head gushed like a cartoon geyser over his many Skittles-related injuries. Unfortunately Time Traveling Bill Ayers was able to erase those tapes and replace them with reruns of Hogan Heroes!
Together, these three deceptions — and there will be more — have established Editgate as the most consequential high-level fraud in the left’s long history of what might be called “race-gating.” By this, I mean the purposeful media corruption of a racially oriented story.
Sure, he believes that the media fabricates every instance of racism in order to make White Americans look bad, but that doesn’t mean he’s racist.
I mean, do we really know that a Time-Traveling Brian Williams wasn’t the real shooter of Martin Luther King Jr? Check the Kerning! Al Sharpton is behind 9-11!
The media’s willingness to lie for the cause should shock no one to the right of Bill Ayers. What is particularly troubling about Editgate is that the major media, which once served as a firewall against fraud, now seem eager accomplices in its commission.
In the “original” post cited by Msr. Cashill, pretty much every single media outfit was organized into a cabal to edit the 911 call to make Zimmerman, a man so not racist he used pictures of his supporters defacing a Black Cultural Center on his website, look like a feeble-minded racist.
And apparently this one 911 call is the only reason that anyone would have to take issue with Zimmerman’s actions. This is like trying to prove the Hindenberg crash never happened because you believe one of the passengers had the wrong type of mud on their boots.
“Spittlegate” is a case in point. In March 2010, the media conspired with the Congressional Black Caucus to portray a group of well-behaved Tea Partiers protesting ObamaCare as a veritable lynch mob.
Apparently years spent trying to prove that Obama couldn’t be born in Hawaii because Bill Ayers’ mailman saw a black man in Chicago has made him believe this is how most evidence works.
I believe the sky is red on one specific appalling act of racism out of many from the painfully racist Tea Party, thus no racism ever and you’re the real poopy-heads.
Also, wasn’t that event, even if we were to erase the appalling treatment of a former Civil Rights Activist, slightly less than “well-behaved”? I suppose naturally, you’d argue that the Chicago Riots were a well-behaved and civil airing of grievances.
Oh wait, no, there’s something about the hue of that event, isn’t there?
To be sure, the alternative media deconstructed the incident to show that no one had used a racial slur as charged
Forgive me if I’m mistaken, but wasn’t the supposed “deconstruction” a random video edited down to about 10 seconds that didn’t happen to include the racial slur for that particular segment?
And yeah, believing a hero of the Civil Rights Era is inherently a liar on all matters of race when he had no need to lie is totally not racist in and of itself.
, let alone spit on a congressman. No matter. The mainstream media let the original story — “Tea Party Protestors Scream ‘Nigger’ at Congressman” — stand as reported.
The media stood by their story just because it happened to be true!
That’s totally unfair and against the clearly written law in the Constitution that goes “Conservatives win everything forever! Nyah Liberal Poopyheads!”
Oh sure, the media still ran endless hours of our meaningless and proof-bare whining so that “both sides could share their stories, but that doesn’t count because they didn’t personally beat Rep. John Lewis to death in contrition. So there!
As a result, the racial wound the media opened has continued to fester.
Oh yes, if it wasn’t for the media, blacks would never have figured out that the Tea Party was made entirely of Neo-confederates having a very public freak out at the very notion of a black president.
After all, there were nothing else to clue them in on that fact.
Also, is it just me, or has most of the Right shifted from whining about how liberals are the real racists because REASONS to whining that the fact that liberals caught them being naked racists is proof that liberals are the real racists because REASONS?
True to the “Gate” legacy, there has been little hint of apology in the “clarifications” the Editgate networks have offered. ABC, for instance, finally did produce an enhanced video to show Zimmerman’s two head wounds, but, incredibly, it headlined that story, “George Zimmerman Video Shows Little Evidence of a Broken Nose, Doctor Claims.”
Said video has no evidence of said head wounds, but damnitt, it’s True to Them! And that’s all that matters! Santa does exist! Market Forces too! And they’re going to bring them a pony! Two ponies and a rocket sled! And they won’t let you ride them! You’ll see! YOU’LL SEE!!!
After cleaning up the audio of the 911 call, CNN’s Gary Tuchman now only concedes, “It does sound less like that racial slur.” In fact, it sounds nothing like a racial slur, and it never did. One hears a long “o” sound as in “cold” — it was raining and 63 degrees — not an “oo” sound.
After all, when I am describing how cold I am, I always say Coonld.
And obligatory Simpsons reference.
Although the level of media complicity is unprecedented, the style of attack is nearly a century old. The left’s first major exploitation of a criminal case can be traced to about 1925, when the newly ascendant Josef Stalin directed his international propaganda arm, the Comintern, to discredit the idea of the American dream.
Makes sense to me. Please, go on.
The Comintern found its poster boys in convicted murderers Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, both foreign-born Italians. The two had been arrested for robbery and murder in 1920 and tried before the jurors even knew that they were radicals. As the appeals process dragged on, the Comintern directed its various front groups to fabricate new facts and create a worldwide myth around the pair’s presumed innocence. Almost immediately, “spontaneous” protests sprang up throughout Europe.
Wow, there really is zero racist event in American history that he hasn’t taken personally as a slight against white people, is there? I’m simultaneously appalled and curious to see his post on how we only believe slavery occurred because mean Northern blacks were trying to smear innocent Southern farmers.
So, yeah, Sacco and Vanzetti, the infamous case wherein two anarchists of the, at the time, hated Italian minority were rushed through a show trial with balls all in evidence beyond “they’re anarchists and guidos and therefore scary”. Not only is this apparently all orchestrated by Cyborg Stalin atop his Throne of Bone, but is a perfect metaphor for a white identified person not even going up for a trial for shooting a black teenager in cold blood.
And not in the sane obvious way you or I would make the parallel, but rather as evidence that Cyborg Stalin has time-jumped past his death to smear Zimmerman with commie media-controlling waves.
Rather than dictating media response, the Comintern preferred to create theater and allow the actors to find their way to the parts.
Yes, they exhibited the most scandalous method of direct control!
Complete absence of any.
No wonder Stalin’s robot army took over all Governments everywhere and destroyed the Free Market in the Wall Street Crash of 29!
The casting call for the Sacco and Vanzetti protests attracted a who’s-who of literary leading lights. Prominent American authors Upton Sinclair, Katherine Ann Porter, John Dos Passos, and Edna St. Vincent Millay not only protested the seeming injustice, but also created literary works around it.
And obviously anyone who sees, say, injustice and is appalled by it, couldn’t genuinely be appalled by injustice. After all, injustice is like a warm summer breeze letting the filthy others know their damn place, no one could take offense to it.
And thus, if they ever do take offense, they are merely under the influence of commie brainwashing rays.
It really is shocking how universal this is. Civil Rights Activists of the 1960s? Well duh on commie mind-control rays! Feminists of the 1970s? Another slam dunk for Team Commie! Northern Forces in the Civil War? Well, Lincoln sounds like Liberal which is just another word for Time-Traveling Commie mind-control! Founding Fathers rebelling against the good and proper British crown? COMMIES, COMMIES, COMMIES!
Each of the progressive authors who wrote about the Sacco and Vanzetti case began his or her work with the a priori assumption that the pair was innocent and, as today, ignored all evidence that contradicted that thesis.
Well, besides the fact that there was painful little evidence they were actual you know, guilty, which the court of law is supposed to actually, you know, prove, there is the little problem that most of said authors mostly took issue with the unfairness of the trial itself.
You know, like how this case isn’t so much about whether Zimmerman goes home every night to masturbate into his KKK hood, but rather about how he didn’t even have to prove in a court of law how Skittles nearly killed him and made him fear for his life. And thus was allowed to go home free with no trial after fucking shooting a kid in cold blood as the kid’s death cries echoed over the 911 call, you fucking reprobate piles of shit.
As the August 1927 execution date approached, the Comintern whipped up rallies and riots. On the night of the execution, August 22, an outpouring of rage and grief swept the world and left common sense buried in its wake. The French Communist daily Humanité published an extra edition with one word on the front cover: Assassinés.
And so, as conservatives declare themselves on the side of injustice, inequality, and the deaths of anyone making less than a million a year and call anyone who disagree with them a filthy communist, they simultaneously wonder why people are starting to have a more and more favorable view of things like socialism.
I mean, seriously, if you weren’t still holding a torch for the days when we were having a bet with Russia on how many times over we could destroy the planet, would you interpret this as anything other than a damn fine endorsement of communist activists?
As the final hours ticked down, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Katherine Ann Porter stood vigil with other artists and writers in Boston. Ever the innocent liberal, Porter approached her group leader, a “fanatical little woman” and a dogmatic Communist, and expressed her hope that Sacco and Vanzetti could still be saved. The response of this female comrade is noteworthy for its candor:
“Saved,” she said, ringing a change on her favorite answer to political illiteracy, “who wants them saved? What earthly good would they do us alive?”
She then twirled her black mustache and tied a woman to some train tracks.
Also, as we’ll see in the next paragraph, this will be Cashill’s only proof that liberals don’t really care about minorities and only pretend to care about things like injustice and broken justice systems because they hope that conservatives will beat them and make martyrs of the minorities.
Now, first off, bullshit times a thousand, but second off…
Um, how is this supposed to work. Liberals take the side of hated minorities when no one else will, even trying to argue in the defense of people publicly called criminals even though they’ll be called all sorts of names over that. Argue for their cases, take the social stigma that comes with that…
All to make conservatives look bad. Even though the only way for conservatives to look bad would be to make martyrs of these people by rushing them through show trials and grave misuses of the justice system while reveling in their hatred for minorities and openly championing injustice.
I mean, is it still supposed to count as setting the other guy up if they needed to be a moralless fuck for the setup to work?
Sacco and Vanzetti were the first in a long line of ethnics whose exploitability interested the left more than their innocence. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Leonard Peltier, Geronimo Pratt, and Mumia Abu-Jamal, like Sacco and Vanzetti, were all convicted of their crimes, but the evidence mattered little to those who wanted to spank America before the world.
Ha! Bet you thought I was kidding when I said there is literally zero racist injustice Cashill hasn’t taken personally as a slight against white people.
But not at all racist, nosiree.
With the passing of the Comintern, America’s homegrown radicals picked up the playbook and directed their own game plans. Thinking anti-racism a more viable strategy than revolution, they expanded the definition of racism to include more behaviors against more groups, requiring more and more invasive remedies.
Yeah, they started recognizing racism against all sorts of groups. Guidos, spics, spades, micks, reds, chinks, japs! Even towelheads! It’s like they recognize other races as people or something!
Really is there any better proof that commie liberals are complete scum? Can I get an amen?
Among those remedies, as George Zimmerman has learned the hard way, is that old Stalinist standby, “ritual defamation.”
Yes, poor old George Zimmerman was doing absolutely nothing wrong, just minding his own business, when all of a sudden, the Liberal Racism’R'Us chain got bored and decided to harass this guy out of the blue and accuse him of all sorts of mean stuff.
Even calling him a racist, which everyone knows is 20 times worse than any bullshit oppression those damn untermenschen whine about!
I mean, people are acting like he shot someone or something!
Why can’t they just leave that poor man alone?!?
To be sure, there is a curious selectivity about who gets defamed. On March 15, 2012, just a few days before the story of Trayvon Martin’s killing in Florida became a national sensation, Jose Carranza, 32, was quietly sentenced to 155 years in prison for brutally executing three innocent black college students in a Newark, New Jersey playground.
And do you see any difference between the two cases that might explain why the response to that case is so much different than the Trayvon Martin case? Any difference at all?
I’ll give you a minute to think about, what might be different and thus getting people upset?
Really think about it. It’s a tricky question-
Like George Zimmerman, Carranza is of Peruvian descent. Ironically, what protected Carranza was the fact that he was “undocumented.” The headline “Illegal Alien Kills Black Innocents” appealed to no one in the Media-Democrat complex. In the leftist narrative, one that Stalin himself could have written, illegals are victims of America, not the villains.
…Why not? Yup, people are just mad because Zimmerman wasn’t some eye-legal that the Right could cite as proof of how them darkies is always gunning down each other over drugs or some shit.
Definitely that and not…y’know…the fact that the undocumented immigrant was instantly put into the justice system and given a quick trial putting him in jail for longer than life while a “white-identified” kid of a conservative judge gets to walk free without so much as a never mind after shooting a kid in cold blood.
That said fucker isn’t even having to have a trial to demonstrate his BS rationalization for gunning down an unarmed kid in the middle of the sidewalk and in fact, the local police department and the entire right-wing media have been going out of their way to try and bully witnesses, bully the family and invent all sorts of BS reasons why one of the most nakedly obvious injustices in the last 5 years is totally the reverse of the well-documented reality.
Nope, must be our hatred of white folks, even though you keep trying to stress how non-white and non-conservative he is. Either that or Time-Traveling Stalin! Why not! It’s the only way those last 10 paragraphs made even the remotest amount of sense. Hey, why not make Bill Ayers the real killer! No, even better, Bill Ayers is the voodoo priest who oversaw the body-switching ceremony before Trayvon Martin stole Zimmerman’s body and shot him and is now running a smear campaign against Martin in Zimmerman’s body in order to make racists more than willing to jump on the side of injustice as long as a black person is getting screwed, look like bad people.
Maybe my tie is made of cheese? Why not?!? I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob-
(Please excuse this break from sanity. We’ve now given your writer a massive dose of horse tranquilizers to calm her down. We apologize for the inconvenience).
I feel cooooonld!
Twenty years prior, the decision-makers in that complex had even less use for a headline that read, “Clinton Tank Attack on Religious Community Kills 26 Blacks, 13 Other Minorities.”
I wasn’t aware that Clinton was a tank-driving Harlem serial killer.
Though I think I might have seen that movie. I think it was starring Dolemite.
So they fully suppressed the race angle. I doubt if even Al Sharpton knows that most of those killed at Waco were minorities.
The super-ultra-conservative Texan cult who thought the fucking coocoo-for-cocoa-puffs Branch Dividians were socialist sellouts was in no ways a minority hotbed. You’re thinking of Jonestown.
And not to press a point, but the Waco Clusterfuck had at least 76 victims.
And while we’re on the subject, might I just note that on the same post you are openly dismissing the outright murder of an unarmed teenage boy who, even if he had attacked, would have been well within his rights under the same “Stand Your Ground” law currently being used to try and sweep away his pre-meditated murder…
You are claiming as eternal martyr a group of fucking nutcase criminals who decided to open fire on federal officers and burn down their own facility killing themselves, children, and cult members who wanted out, because the leader didn’t want to be arrested for openly breaking the law by stockpiling illegal weaponry. I mean, sure, the ATF could have handled it better, but it’s not like they were personally responsible for anything other than trying to give a nutcase an opportunity to turn himself in peacefully and not being fast enough on the draw to rescue the nutcases from themselves.
I’m not sure this comparison does your side many favors. We champion the unchampioned, the screwed over and voiceless, you champion a cult run by a rapist who wanted to overthrow the government and shot and killed federal officers before killing women and children.
Just saying, Jackie.
In 2007, Syracuse University commemorated the eightieth anniversary of the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti as a way of highlighting, in its own words, “not only the creative response to the perceived injustice of the prosecution and sentence, but also the decades of continuing protest over what Katherine Anne Porter described as ‘the never-ending wrong.’”
Yeah! Fucking liberals remembering shit that happened in history as a reminder to be vigilant good citizens today!
What’s that shit about?
No matter what the evidence says about George Zimmerman
Um, like it matters. I mean, we have “evidence”. More evidence than is usually ever seen in a case. So much evidence that usually prosecutors would be gunning each other down to head this case because it’s a complete freebie.
But see, none of that matters, there won’t be a “the evidence says about George Zimmerman” because he went home without even a fucking case being filed against him.
And since you’ve spent over half the post writing about another miscarriage of the justice system, you can’t really claim ignorance of the parallels or why people might be the slightest bit upset that Zimmerman doesn’t have to defend his weak ass shit in fucking court.
in the minds of the faithful, his exoneration will remain a “never-ending wrong.” And this time, the “wronged” will not satisfy themselves with attending exhibits at Syracuse University.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Go fuck yourself!
Yes, us liberals aren’t just content to sit and mope about how the system is corrupt and are actually trying to fix and call attention to it.
Why can’t liberals just accept injustice as something to put in a museum while overpaid Klan members try and pretend injustice is just the figment of liberal’s imagination?
Yeah, sorry, to disappoint you fuckers, but people who care are going to speak out about it and not everyone is like the media who you can bully around with accusations of liberal bias.
If you were hoping we would just go away and let you win forever and shoot as many black kids as you want to justify your paranoid racist delusions, I gotta tell you Jackie boy:
