Democrats want minorities to believe they are with them, come hell or high water. If they were to speak out against that type of violence, certain groups may feel the dems had turned against them.
I just watched Juan Williams doing a spot on Fox. He's as far left as they get. But, he was going off on black on black murders, and numerous other crimes predominately being committed by blacks. He used the imbalance of prison populations as a talking point. It's very rare for him to, at minimum, appear as though he may agree with the right. He said, in referencing the Zimmerman case, that the MSM, and the so-called religious leaders have to stop going back in history to dig up 50-60 year old stories pointing to injustice. He said, things have changed drastically and digging into old stories about racism does more harm than good.
I still don't have any use for him, but he did demonstrate he actually knows what is going on in the country with the MSM.
Is there such a thing as 99.9% socialist?
Don't remember who, but there was a female guest on Fox asking the same questions. Why isn't the MSM pointing to the almost daily attacks like the one in the OP? Nobody had an answer. Or, they were afraid to state what they believed.
