You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

Justice Served

Big news out of Washington, DC, lately has been the official apology for "lynching." CNN has been running a long interview with 90 year old James Cameron who's two friends were lynched some 70 years ago. According to Cameron's story he and his two friends went out to "lover's lane" intending to rob a white couple, whatever white couple they happened to find. According to Cameron he recognized the white woman they found so he didn't want any part of the robbery and left. His two friends robbed, and then murdered the man who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Cameron's two friends were subsequently arrested along with Cameron, and the two friends were dragged from the jail and hanged. Then Cameron was dragged out and almost hanged but a witness said that he had nothing to do with the murder, so they didn't hang him. He later was sentenced to 4 years for his part in planning the robbery.

CNN and the Senate have made a big deal about Cameron's experience as if he was some kind of victim or hero. Click here for the story.

From CNN, "Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Arkansas, right, shakes hands with James Cameron, the only known lynching survivor in America, on Monday." Call me uninformed, but the two friends were guilty of random robbery and murder and deserved to hang. They got only what they deserved. Justice was served. Cameron was also guilty of criminal conspiracy and planning a crime, and a convicted criminal for his lesser part in the murder. He didn't "survive hanging" because he was exonerated by a witness and not hanged. He also got justice. He deserves no apology or handshake from the Senate for his part in robbery and murder, not even if he was a black man who only planned to rob and murder a white man.

CNN's fine print points out that 25% of "lynching" victims were not black. I've read elsewhere that they were 20% white and 5% other races. Despite the historical truth, we now find 100% of the "victims" being depicted on CNN and the other media, 100% of those paraded before the Senate, 100% of them are black.

In contrast to the active hatred of white men currently being carried out by the left wing extremist media, the CNN story of Cameron demonstrates that justice was done quickly and without a lot of delay and obfuscation. Cold blooded murderers were hanged. I call that justice. Maybe it's the lieyers who feed on obfuscation who oppose speedy justice.

In a related political note, CNN reports, "Seven presidents petitioned Congress to end lynching. Nearly 200 anti-lynching bills were introduced in the first half of the 20th century. The House passed three anti-lynching measures between 1920 and 1940, but the Senate passed none." Over the past few months we have heard many Senate Democrats waxing loudly about how the Senate filibuster is "real democracy" and protects minorities. Senators Kennedy, Clintoon, Boxer, and the rest of the Democrats have all gone on record supporting the preservation of the filibuster rule. They went so far as to call Republican proposals for rule changes a "nuclear option." In light of recent Democratic filibusters of appointed federal judges, we need to point out that it was Democratic filibusters that prevented the anti-lynching bills from passing for close to 100 years. Which is it we don't need, Democrats or Senate filibusters, or both?
