A Race Hoax? Oh Kinda Sorta Like Your Brother Lying about Trayvon, Zimmerman, Jr.?
I have a backlog of posts that are dying to be written to correct the lies and falsehoods spewing from Robert Zimmerman, Jr. Today, I’ll walk through one egregious lie he pushes along with his racist cohorts at the Conservative Treehouse. Yes, you hear over and over from them about the Duke Lacrosse Case and Tawanna Brawley. Those are their “race hoaxes” and now through conspiracy theories no self-respecting, dignified American would believe, they believe Thugboat’s arrest and prosecution is another race hoax. Based on “NBC making him look racist” and Jr’s most recent bullshit about no one would care if Thugboat was 100% white. Oh please! Notice none of this deals with the evidence or the events of 2/26 so quite frankly, their lies and distractions are nothing more than Rovian and an attempt to perpetrate the types of Race Hoaxes, we know so well.
Or maybe, we don’t know them so well, because these types of events, some distant, some recent never seem to become symbolic to the racists and white supremacists (of which, make no mistake, Jr. is one). So as we prepare for 2013 and Justice for Trayvon, let’s familiarize ourselves with race hoaxes perpetrated by many more than the two cases they cling to as if they can commit crime against people of color and then turn around and hide behind the Duke Lacrosse Case and Tawanna Brawley.
Bethany Storro singled out the African American community as she apologized Friday for making up a story that a black woman had thrown acid on her face — when the 28-year-old Vancouver woman herself was to blame.
On October 25, 1994, Smith claimed to have been carjacked by an African-American man, with her boys in the car. She later confessed to drowning them and was sentenced to life.
A tall black man attacked her and told her that he was going to make her an Obama supporter. The whole idea of trying to fuel a racial divide either to help a presidential campaign or as a stunt to get attention is sick and sad.
On Oct. 23, 1989, Charles Stuart shot and killed his pregnant wife, Carol Stuart. His accusation that a black man was responsible inflamed racial tensions in Boston.
A robber who marauded in a high-quality mask that made him appear African-American was no match for Ohio cops.
Conrad Zdzierak, 30, has been charged with multiple counts of aggravated robbery after robbing four banks and an a CVS pharmacy on April 9, reports ABC News affiliate WFTS in Tampa.
Philadelphia Police Sgt. Robert Ralston
A Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, police officer who told authorities he was shot while on patrol last month has admitted he shot himself intentionally, the city’s police commissioner said Tuesday.
Sgt. Robert Ralston, 46, confessed to police early Tuesday morning that he made up the story, possibly to a get attention or a transfer, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said in a news conference.
Ralston reported that on April 5 he saw two African-American males arguing on a train track in West Philadelphia. He told investigators that when he stopped the two men for questioning one of them pulled out a gun and shot him in the left shoulder.
Conroe HS janitor Clarence Brandley
Clarence Brandley was working as a high school custodian in Conroe, Texas, in 1980, when police arrested him for the murder of Cheryl Fergeson, a 16-year-old white student. When his white co-workers voiced suspicion of Clarence, the only black man on the staff, he was quickly arrested and charged.
While the police interviewed Brandley and one of his white co-workers, an interrogator proclaimed that, “One of you two is going to hang for this,” and told Clarence, “Since you’re the nigger, you’re elected.” In his first trial he faced an all-white jury. One juror refused to convict, causing a hung jury, and was met with a constant barrage of harassment and threats after the trial ended. Clarence’s second all-white jury convicted him, and in 1981 he was sentenced to death.
In 2009 Sweeten spurred an intensive search by federal and local authorities by making a fake 911 call to say she and her 9-year-old daughter had been kidnapped by two black men in a truck. Authorities say that in reality, Sweeten had taken her daughter to Disney World in Florida.
Vignola met the woman on Craigslist’s “erotic services” section in May 2008, Foster said. The two got together at the North American Motor Inn on City Avenue about 9 p.m. that May 28.
The two had consensual sex, then began to argue. Vignola punched the woman in the throat and pinned her to the floor, sitting on her abdomen and placing his knees on her arms until she was unconscious. With a knife, he made a six-inch slash on the right side of her neck.
Before confessing to police, Vignola blamed the attack on a “light-skinned black man” who burst into the room as he and the woman were having sex.
On Monday, the judge sternly told him, “You need to own up to what you did.” She said he could also have been charged with robbery.
“You told a heinous lie about a black man,” Hughes said, adding that the victim “didn’t make any decision to justify getting her throat slit.”
Irene Tusken & James Sullivan
On June 14, 1920, James Sullivan accompanied Irene Tusken at the John Robinson Circus. Tusken and Sullivan alleged six black circus laborers held them at gunpoint and then raped Tusken. Sullivan was the first to come forward about the alleged rape, informing his father later that evening.
Tusken, Irene (November 1, 1901 – June 12, 1996)
Irene Tusken, a white nineteen-year-old from West Duluth, claimed six black circus laborers raped her on the evening of June 14, 1920. Her story spread among vengeful Duluthians, leading to the mob lynching of three young black men — Elias Clayton, Elmer Jackson, and Isaac McGhie.
Little evidence backed her allegations. Dr. David Graham, a family physician, examined Tusken shortly after the alleged rape, finding no physical evidence of rape or assault. The police were not contacted until hours after the claimed rape occurred. Her friend James Sullivan was the only witness. Additionally, Tusken could only give vague physical descriptions of her alleged assailants.
Ruby Bates and Victoria Price
Ruby Bates was, like Victoria Price, a poor Huntsville millworker who became one of the two accusers of the Scottsboro Boys. But, unlike Price, Bates later recanted her story of rape aboard a Chattanooga to Memphis freight train, and went on to actively campaign for the release of the jailed black defendants.
Charles Manson and The Family – attempted to start a race war by murdering and pointing the finger at blacks.
The Jim Crow South after Reconstruction
Now, I’m sorry to harsh everyone’s buzz but sometimes you have to rip-off the bandaid to move forward. Be not intimidated by Jr. dealing the race card from the bottom of the deck. He gets away with it because many will not push back on his ignorant nonsense. The fact is, Jr harbors bitter racial resentment towards black. The fact is, he is too stupid and ignorant to understand that the Justice for Trayvon supporters come from ALL walks of life, all political stripes. He focuses on blacks and dog whistles because he knows that the only people who support his murdering brother are those who share his deep-seated racial resentment. So he trumpets and parrots every single racist meme from the Conservative Treehouse. He is a fraud and a racist and as evidence and history shows, the person who is pulling a race hoax is his brother, who stalked, pursued, chased down and then murdered Trayvon. After doing so, he lied and tried to paint Trayvon as a thug who attacked him because hey, he was black and in a hoodie. But Jr, the record will show, many people believed those featured above until their lies were exposed. In 2013, are you ready to go to trial and have the race hoax of 2012 exposed for what it is – a racist accusation made by your brother, continued on by you and your supporters against Trayvon, his family and their attorney and in many cases those who support them, whether they be black or white? When the immunity hearing is denied and we get this to trial, it will be painfully clear that you and your brother are trying the oldest race hoax in the book, namely taking an innocent child and by the virtue of him being black, attempting to turn him into a savage (h/t Zimmurder Momma). As it did not work in the cases above, trust me, it will not work with your brother.
2013 will be a good year for Justice and the 2012 race hoax perpetrated by Thugboat and his family and supporters will be beat back with the force of righteousness and truth. Bank on it!
