Kass: Where’s Jesse & Al?
Posted on September 24, 2014
On August 20th, 9 year-old Antonio Smith was executed by four habitual jagoffs. He wasn’t hit by a stray bullet like 11 year-old Shamiya Adams, he was shot six times, on purpose. One would think that would get some people really pissed off, right? Well, not really:
“When will Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson Sr. show up in Chicago to show Ferguson-style outrage over the assassination of 9-year-old Antonio Smith?
There was plenty of televised outrage over the Ferguson, Mo., death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, who was shot by a white cop.
But practically none over Antonio Smith, who just before he was killed argued with his mom because she wouldn’t give him a cupcake.”
Kass continues by stating what we’ve said time and time again anytime something like this happens:
“There was plenty of TV outrage over Michael Brown’s shooting. Sharpton and Jackson reveled in it. Activists even took to raising their hands as they say Brown did before he was shot.
But no crowds of protesters took to the streets in his memory.
But there was little if any national political outrage, or national coverage. And without daily protests, looting or Sharpton’s showmanship, without those white college kids in their Guy Fawkes masks, Antonio Smith’s story died, too, for a time.
He was a black child allegedly killed by black gangsters, so the politics apparently weren’t right for outrage. And the loudest sound after Antonio died was of his mother, sobbing.”
In the eyes of Jesse, Al and numerous politicians, 9 year-old Antonio is the perfect, exploitable victim. The only problem is gangbanging, rap sheet laden, home monitored losers don’t make for ideal assailants. Hence crickets.
