MY THOUGHTS ON CHARLIE DANIELS ARTICLE – Marty Martel
The following are my thoughts on what Charlie Daniels recently wrote in his great comments. I know that there are those who would rather see me write about country music only, but there is more to our country and the direction we are headed, than country music, and Charlie Daniels is a country music legend, so I feel comfortable in sending this out for those who want to read it, and for those who wish not to read it-THEN DELETE IT.
Charlie Daniels has come forward to speak out on civil rights leaders and media coverage of the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman trial, but more to the point about the coverage from all national news media. But Charlie spoke of another heinous and inhuman crime that took place in East Tennessee in 2006. I am wondering where HLN and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were then. I followed this crime through the trial and results, but I did not see coverage from major media, especially Headline News, regarding how these two young people were massacred by 5 sick individuals. The death that these two young college students endured was so terrible that most all news media stayed away from it. Can anyone tell me what happened to those 5 inhuman beings.
(Charlie Daniels in his article regarding these two young people, gives the details of how they were murdered). Where were Mike Galanos, Vinnie Politan, A.J. Hammer, Nancy Grace, and Jane Velez-Mitchell when one of the worst crimes in the U.S. in my lifetime, took place. Oh I forgot, I guess they were not with CNN or HLN at that time, so in fact, from that time on, HLN hired newscasters who would stop at nothing to incite our nation to having these newscasters become the Judges, Jurors, and Executor’s. To think here in the United States of America, we have allowed media coverage to have so much power, even their own simulated jurors who know nothing about law or legal rights except what they are being told by an idiot such as Vinnie Politan and by the morning news instigator, Mike Galanos who lights the fire underneath everyone to make sure that all of the viewers know “who the newscasters feel is guilty” and how they should be punished by “their” decision, and not by our system, which no doubt could use some revamping. We have allowed CNN to control our lives with what they wish to push across to the American people, and to make us believe what they want us to believe. Oh yes, they have some great compassionate stories of good deeds also, but they have no business doing the work of our judicial system. Whether our system is right or wrong, CNN or HLN does not have the right to have our nations see and hear only what the newcasters want us to see with their side of the story.
Someone please tell me that we are not being dictated to. And just recently another baffling story out of Chattanooga, TN with the firing of Drew Johnson, who led the editorial page at the Chattanooga Times Free Press, ran a critical column about Obama with the headline, “Take your jobs plan and shove it, Mr. President: Your policies have harmed Chattanooga enough.” This apparently did not sit well with Johnson’s superiors, who promptly relieved him of his duties. They told the rival Chattanoogan that Johnson’s headline was “inappropriate” and that he had changed it at the last minute in violation of “the normal editing process.”
Drew Johnson said “I just became the first person in the history of newspapers to be fired for writing a paper’s most-read article. We change headlines all the time at the last minute. I had a filler headline in that stunk and thought of that Johnny Paycheck song. Any time the paper wanted to change the headline online (which is how most people read the editorial), they could’ve.
WHISNews21: It seems Mr. Johnston, that soon half of America will be fired as more and more people are voicing their opinion of Obama. The upside is that you can now stay and collect free food stamps and whatever else is given out free to the jobless. Oh yes, and you can thank your Editor for that, he must be a very happy chappy right now, probably sitting by his phone hoping to get a call from the President.
It is time for America The Land of The Free and Brave to stand up and speak our minds. I hope we never lose our rights to the Freedom’s of Religion, Speech, and Press that give us the right to say, write, and worship when we feel the need, and with no worries about being stopped by our government, who have the tools to listen to our phone conversations now, in the privacy of our own home, and we would never know. Recently I read where at the age of 76 those who have cancer can be turned away for treatment because of their age. I guess this is the new Obama health care plan. This administration has lied to us on so many occasions that when they do tell the truth, if they do, it is difficult to believe them. I have never seen a President, that I can remember, have so many cabinet members resign from their jobs for reasons that we probably will never know. YES IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE.
And now I urge you to read Charlie Daniels comments in his following article.
Aftermath – Soapbox 07/19/13
The Trayvon Martin killing was a tragedy that, as far as I’m concerned, never should have happened. It was a classic case of really bad judgment on the part of both the involved individuals, with Zimmerman following Trayvon when he shouldn’t have and Martin attacking Zimmerman when he shou…ldn’t have and both men responsible for painting themselves into one of those tight corners where somebody has to be hurt.
But the case, as tragic as it was, was made many times worse by an irresponsible media and civil rights leaders who exploited it for whatever ink and TV face time they could get out of it.
In the time that the Zimmerman trial was going on there were sixty-one murders in Chicago, forty-three of them were black males and seven of those black males were under the age of 18, most of them died from gunshot wounds, all violent, all senseless. Do Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson just not care as much about the black male population of Chicago or is it that they just can’t garner as much media attention there?
Speaking of media attention, a young white couple, students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, was carjacked, raped, tortured and murdered.
The young man, Christopher Newsome, was raped and beaten, then castrated, shot, his body dumped by train tracks and set on fire while his girlfriend, Channon Christian, was forced to watch.
Channon was gang raped over a period of days, her breasts cut off while she was still alive, then had cleaning fluid sprayed in her mouth in an attempt to erase the traces of DNA and her body put into a garbage receptacle.
Maybe you’re wondering why you haven’t heard about this inhuman crime, perhaps you think your local paper didn’t had time to cover it yet.
I seriously doubt that, since the crime took place in August of 2006, and of your local news outlets, most probably never covered it. I live about 150 miles from where it took place and, to the everlasting shame of networks and the local news media I didn’t hear about it either until somebody brought my attention to it on the internet.
How could a crime this heinous, this inhuman, this completely evil escape the notice of the mass media and the talking heads who are always screaming for equal justice under the law?
Simple, it doesn’t fit their agenda, the perpetrators were all black, all five of them. If this wasn’t a case of blatant racism, I truly don’t know what is. Do you honestly believe there wasn’t racial bias involved in the choosing of the victims and the malicious violence that was done to them, and yet this story, one of the most hideous murders of the decade, was not covered by the media and was completely ignored by the so called civil rights leaders of all colors.
A dangerous precedent has been set by Eric Holder’s Justice Department and aided and abetted by the mainstream American media, selective prosecution and selective journalism all calculated to push a political agenda that drives the races in this nation farther apart every day.
No good will come from Al Sharpton calling for demonstrations around the nation, already a group of blacks have beaten a random Hispanic citizen claiming, “This is for Trayvon”.
What’s the difference in this and what the KKK was doing a few short decades ago. Is this what Sharpton and his ilk want to see happen, anarchy in the name of prejudice? Isn’t that very thing what he’s supposed to be fighting against?
America cannot continue down this path and remain the land of the free and the home of the brave where all men are equal under the law.
America desperately needs a president who is a uniter, not a divider, a Justice Department that actually wants to enforce the law equally, regardless of color or race, a Congress and Senate who could reclaim their testicles and a media which reports the news instead of trying to make it.
Blind hate is blind hate no matter what color it comes in.
I will not be a part of it.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
