Just Imagine...

...if Vester Flanagan was a white Christian male. We'd be hearing a whole lot more about the tragedy when he shot two WDBJ employees, and we certainly would be reading his hate manifesto. However, he was black and gay, so our "news" media is covering it up.

Two days ago, ABC News reported that Vester Flanagan, the murderer of two WDBJ employees, sent a 23-page faxed manifesto to ABC News.  ABC reported bits and pieces of the manifesto.
Yet we still haven’t seen the full document.  ABC hasn’t made it available. Why?
John Nolte and others have been busy hammering away at the racial hypocrisy of many in the media after treating Flanagan’s crimes very differently from Dylann Roof’s.  Unquestionably, they were both racially motivated.  But you’d never know that from reading the headlines in the Washington Post or other mouthpieces that enable the (one way) racial grievance industry.
Some of them are particularly dishonest brokers when it comes to reporting on the racist motives of evil wrongdoers.  Nolte:
A CBS report never mentioned the shooter’s racial comments at all. The piece did tiptoe around the shooter’s problems with race in two paragraphs, but never actually stated his race rhetoric seen in the explicit terms revealed in his manifesto.
Then, a piece in the Chicago Tribune called the killer “off kilter” and “bizarre” but steered clear of fully reporting on his racist ideas.
One reporter, The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel, even took to Twitter to wring his hands over the reporting of Flanagan’s racist manifesto, saying to Breitbart’s John Nolte, “Do you worry at all that the ‘race war’ story does what the killer wanted?”
To be sure, Weigel was far less worried about stirring racial strife when he wrote a Bloomberg piece dissecting the racial motives of Charleston killer Dylann Roof.
It’s understandable, perhaps, that some of them simply lack the courage to confront evil motives in whatever color they come.  Others have been conditioned to believe that racial wrongdoing is a one-way street.  The worst are handmaidens of the ethnic front groups who view racial strife as the means to power and cash.  But no race is free from racially motivated bad actors.
Until ABC News releases the full text of Flanagan’s hate manifesto, the public won’t get the full story of what motivated and animated him.  Perhaps that provides a clue as to what might be in it and why ABC News, so far, has decided to hide the manifesto.

90% of the news media today are leftist hacks. You need to be very careful where you get your news from.

***Not much time, as usual. I do have one of my new hires finally able to connect to the system and work today. She will be a big help. My girls have been working their tails off, but we just couldn't keep up. When we get the other new hire going, we should be in great shape. Looking forward to being able to breathe a bit.

***Taking mom to her eye appointment today for her Avastin injection. My sister or brother-in-law almost always take her, felt like I needed to take a turn. Then Mark's family tonight for pizza. Gonna be a hectic day.

fun fact

***Today in history:

AUGUST 28, 1963: Martin Luther King, J. delivers his famous “I Have a Dream” speech to more than a quarter million people from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The national mall was filled that hot August day with thousands who had taken part in the March on Washington or Jobs and Freedom, and King’s speech set out to place their struggle in a larger context of history, calling on passages from the Declaration of Independence and the Bible. When Mahalia Jackson exhorted him to “Tell them about the dream, Martin!” King set aside his prepared text to deliver what would become the speech’s most stirring calls for justice, words that became a defining moment in the civil-rights movement.

1. Reach the men
Fatherlessness is a root cause of many of the ills plaguing the inner city, so we have to reach the men. The Church needs to teach them biblical principles. Help them be accountable. Programs like Pastor Darryl’s “Boot Camp” helps get men off the streets through a combination of spiritual instruction and practical help, like teaching job skills.
2. Unleash the Gospel
Jesus didn’t send His followers out to create “self-help” groups. “Education is not the salvation of man,” says Darryl. “Education informs us. Prison reforms. But the Gospel transforms.” The Church needs to recognize the power of the Gospel and the blood of Jesus Christ to reach into the darkest pit and save the lost.
3. Help residents of the inner city find jobs
Heart-change alone won’t help pay the bills. That’s why supporting groups like Bob Woodson’s “Center for Neighborhood Enterprise” is so important. The CNE helps community and faith-based organizations with training and technical assistance. It links them with sources of support. Churches would be wise to support groups like Bob’s and provide the practical help families need to overcome the daily obstacles that threaten their success.
