St. Michael, the thug: The media bias in Ferguson

WASHINGTON, August 19, 2104 — Call a priest. The myth of the objective, unbiased press is past the point of needing the last rites.

It needs a burial.

The media is a slave to its dogma and follows that dogma with a zeal that would make Torquemada and Joseph Goebbles proud.

When a white man kills a black man, the facts suddenly become irrelevant. All that matters is the narrative. The narrative is given by the media, blessed be the name of the narrative. The first thing the left wing media does is to sanctify the victim.


This was done in the Trayvon Martin case and is now being done in the Michael Brown case.

Trayvon Martin was a little thug, well on his way to a prison cell. He had stolen jewelry in his backpack at school. He fought with other people, used drugs and had twitter pictures that suggested he had purchased a handgun.

Martin tried to engage in the “knock out” game against George Zimmerman. He used a racist description of Zimmerman right before he attacked him.

The media did their best to bury those facts. When photos of the two were shown on TV or in print, it was a photo of George Zimmerman, unshaven and looking menacing juxtaposed against a photo of Martin as a 13 year old.

Zimmerman was immediately disparaged as a racist even though his history showed just the opposite. He was described as “half white, Hispanic.”  In order to demonize him, Zimmerman had to be at least partially white.

When the conservative media and blogosphere exposed the truth about Trayvon Martin, they were denounced as racists even though every word about Martin was true.

When Michael Brown was killed, the same liberal media spun into action. The narrative was quickly established. Officer Darren Wilson was a racist simply because he was white. The media ignored information released by the police department that Officer Warren had injuries consistent with being in a fight.

The media quickly tried to establish the narrative that Michael Brown was a “gentle giant.” AP, ignoring its own stylebook, kept referring to him as a “teenager,” even though the stylebook that reporters are supposed to follow mandates that someone over 18 be referred to as an adult.

CNN showed photos of Brown, perhaps unaware that in some photos Brown was flashing gang signs.

Then over the objections of the Department of Justice, the Ferguson Police Department released video showing Brown committing a strong armed robbery minutes before he was killed.

Oops, there goes the narrative.

The media dutifully reported the family’s claim that telling the truth about Brown was character assassination. Calling a cop who acted in self-defense a racist even though there is no proof of that is fine, but pointing out that Brown really was a criminal is character assassination.

The flames of Ferguson have been flamed by the media lynch mob. Some of the media, such as Chris Hayes from the Karl Marx channel (AKA MSNBC) have called for Darren Wilson’s arrest.  Ignore the fact there is no proof of criminal acts by Wilson, the narrative must be fulfilled.

If anyone believes the media is unbiased and objective, well you probably believe that both Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were choirboys. And there is some ocean front property in Tennessee that might interest you as well.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet. A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says. Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC. “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based. Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville. Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’ I did.” The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown. It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed. Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker. He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should. He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.

    Amazing, not one comment until now. No one wants to read the truth about dead thugs!

      I’m appalled at the constant reporting. Child, teenager…he is a grown Man, an adult. The media knows the outrage killing a child/ teenager will cause. Also it’s disgusting to hear the disparity in employment statistics. The media reports that ferguson has a majority population of black people, however, they report the unemployment rate to be higher for blacks. Um…if your the majority then it would make sense. How about statistics on white vs black in Ferguson who are on government assistance???? If your going to throw around disparities lets throw all the disparities on the table….it’s becoming about who screams the loudest. Stop the cries of abuse and injustice, where were the cries of a abuse prior to this, all the media reporting how this has been a strained situation in this area and this was the line in the sand. Let’s hear about it….Where were these community leaders prior to the shooting if life was so horrific in Ferguson…that’s right there were the same rules as today, be accountable for your actions, reap what you sew……Be respectful, treat others how you want to be treated, follow directions, have respect for authority……who are you to demand justice with the only acceptable justice being what you believe it to be…..how about what the law and the unbiased evidence proves? That will be justice……

        As things develop, at least 12 witnesses now corroborate the cop’s story. And the cop himself is being treated for a major fracture of the orbital bone, something he could only have received as a result of being seriously punched out by someone who knew how to do it. So much for the “Gentle Giant.” Mob rule and increased racism–the ultimate result of electing a president who encourages it.

            We actually don’t know if there is ir isn’t yet.

      I believe the upset is more about the fact that his life was taken for little to nothing when rapist and murderers go free daily with not as much as a slap on the wrist. No one has the right to take the life of another even if he/she is the scum of the earth….that’s the big picture. In addition to this fact, regardless to his character he was still someones son. We all love our children no matter who or what they are so it doesn’t hurt to be compassionate for his parents in the lost of the child that they gave birth to and recently had to bury. Most people would agree that losing a child under any circumstance is the most horrific experience one will ever have.

        So Wilson was no ones son? If Browns mother had raised him maybe he would have been a different person. A bully and a racist we are better off without him. Has any one interview his former school class mates YET, bet that will be a scorcher about how genteel he was? A real eye opener. Wonder if the Foundation for Brown is up and running yet like it was for little tayvon three days after his death? They even hired a consult ion firm to milk it for all the money they could get look it up. Trayvon martin foundation look it up.

      • Vivian Lee

        So you think it would have been better if Officer Wilson’s family had to bury him? Why? Is it because he is white, so in your eyes that makes him less human? Less worthy of life? Do you have any idea how racist you are?

      “Most people would agree that losing a child under any circumstance is the most horrific experience one will ever have.” How true but does it apply to Wilson the assaulted victim? not in your play book right?

    How unfortunate for *your* counternarrative, then, that he paid for those cigars.

    • nubian

      He was not at a legal age to pay for those cigars! The closed cam photos shows him manhandling the store clerk. I say good riddance!

      • meg

        He paid for the cigars and we then shoved the clerk?

    • Vivian Lee

      Really? So why did the 18 yr old giant need to intimidate and push the little store clerk?
      Why was the clerk trying to stop him? The clerk claimed he was robbed, and now is afraid to admit it because he thinks some “worthy” Ferguson folk will kill him. Don’t you see how shameful that is in a country like ours?
      The store owner said he stole $50 worth of cigars. I didn’t see any 50 bills being put down.

    Good Job Judson. I don’t see camera’s when defenseless senior citizens are mauled and murdered in Phili or when Black Salt Lake City officers can kill an unarmed white man in his early 20’s. The media needs to get into the gang violence that’s taking allot more than 1 life. Hands up? I have a finger up. White Lives Matter too. The Joseph Goebbles of CNN has stock in Sharptons parade. Maybe Al can be honest about the black on black stats.

    Name calling, how eloquently unbiased of you.

    Considering the source, I knew this piece wouldn’t be objective at all. Come on, that’s like expecting the KKK to have an objective view of black people and immigrants. Always trying to find a way to disparage the memory of an unarmed black teen killed by police

    And what happens with the next one? Eric Garner? Did he deserve to die? Although there was a white man in the same situation as Garner, who is still alive today despite having millions in untaxed cigarettes.

    Give me a break!

  • Terry

    I doubt he says any of this when a black cop kills a white civilian.
