TV Crimes

No, I'm not talking about the cancellation of Firefly in the first season. I'm referring to that thing that is buzzing all over the Blogosphere, the Trayvon Martin Case. I just want to point out what we are seeing here.

What we are seeing here is the Propaganda Division of OPFOR testing once more their ability to convict a man before he ever sees the inside of a courtroom. The complicity of mainstream news media in the distortions surrounding this case has been sickening, but no more so than other cases in the past. Remember the Hutaree? Their asses were in a sling long before they ever graced the inside of a courtroom, and even now that principal charges against them have been dropped, the popular mental picture of them is too pervasive; the damage is already done. And if Zimmerman slips the conviction, the damage is already done there too, the popular image has beaten the facts of the case.

What we are seeing here, then, is the very mechanisms of our own eventual conviction. It is magnificent in a way; there are so many forms of media output that the bare truth is bound to escape in one form or another, but because so many of their target audience are already conditioned to blame white racism for any setback, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter that eyewitness reports place Zimmerman was on the ground being punched, or that NBC edited the footage to make his statements appear racist, or that he was well known to be active in black community charities, or even that he is a Hispanic Democrat. And the vast majority of people are going to confirmation bias that town into charred rubble.

Be grateful for this case, Mr. & Mrs. FREEFOR. It will show you who your enemies are...and how they will convict you, when the time comes.
