Media's dishonest motives in Trayvon Martin case could end in riots

Since the news of Trayvon Martin's death hit the news cycle, the mainstream media has portrayed the teenager as a sweet young-man, drinking fruit punch and eating skittles, when, out of know where, George Zimmerman attacked him. Forget innocent until proven guilty, George Zimmer was guilty of Second Degree Murder, without a shadow of a doubt in the eyes of the mainstream media.

Why?

Race…obviously! (…forget the fact that George Zimmerman is a multi-racial Hispanic American, that doesn't matter to the MSM.)

"From the beginning, they were trying to make every element of it [the Trayvon Martin case] about race," Stu said.

Well, after nearly a year of the media doing nothing but paint Martin as a strapping young man and Zimmerman has a racist killer, this Florida community is now being told that Zimmerman will walk. Whether you like him or not, the facts are revealing that his plea of self-defense could quite easily be a legitimate one. But sadly, that doesn't matter to the public. They're not going to react well to this.

"You get a year of this, then you get one week of a little bit of evidence that completely contradicts every element of that story.  And then you expect people to not react and get upset?  Of course.  I mean, the media has been inciting.  It has nothing to do with a particular community.  I think any community that was targeted by the media, given a bill of goods like this, would be a risk to riot," Stu continued.

Stu continued, "I mean, the media has told us for a year that there is a huge injustice if this man walks free.  Without any evidence, without anything to back it.  And now that we find out that the evidence is on the other side, it's a much smaller focus, it's in a much smaller period of time.  It's more technical evidence and everything else.  It's not the emotion of this black man was killed by this white man.  You know, it has to be, it has to run through your head.  I mean, just ‑‑ it just, of all logic would run through your head.  I think on any group of people that was sold a bill of goods like this.  And the media is responsible for it.  They are responsible."

"There's no doubt about that," Pat agreed.  "And they're still, they're still beating that drum now."

Well, they're trying anyway. Only now that evidence has been laid out, it's not quite as easy.

Cable news hosts like MSNBC's Al Sharpton are saying things like, 'There's little hope Zimmerman will be convicted.'

"Why are you hoping for conviction when there's no evidence to convict him on?" Pat rhetorically asked. "It's really bizarre."

"Think about the fact that Al Sharpton has a television show in this country," Stu began (now THAT is bizarre). "This man who's been discredited for false accusations over and over and over again, has intentionally ruined the lives of public servants for no reason. And the man is rewarded with a television show every night where he's now spouting the exact same things he said about, you know, Tawana Brawley and Duke Lacrosse. Now it's George Zimmerman."

"The guy who's yelling on the megaphone on the steps back in the eighties," Stu continued, "he's now the authority on television every night for a major corporation!  I mean, we've come a long freaking way.  So to say that there's no chance of this happening as far as rioting or, you know, looting or who knows what else I think is absolute — you're in denial if you don't consider the possibility."

Luckily for Zimmerman, Sharpton's ratings are abysmal. Unfortunately, Al Sharpton's not the only one who painted him in this light.

Here are just a few examples of the mainstream media's "reporting" on the case...

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."
