Tawana Brawley’s parents want case re-opened

Posted by: ST on November 18, 2007 at 11:40 pm

My initial thought on this was “say it isn’t so!” but on thinking about it a little bit more, I believe it’s an excellent idea.

Yes, let’s re-open this case and revisit it, so a whole new generation who weren’t around or were too young to understand at the time can learn what happened in the Tawana Brawley rape hoax, a hoax that was perpetuated in large part by notorious race hustler “Reverend” Al Sharpton.

Since we see his despicable mug on camera nearly every week whining about the latest alleged “racial incident” or convicting people in the court of public opinion before they’ve had a chance to stand trial, and hypocritically complaining about racist comments made by others, and he’s all of a sudden become the “moral arbiter” for outrage in the black community, let the younger generation see just what kind of clown the media – and Democrats who treated this racist as a serious contender for president back in 2004 (even having him make a primetime speech at their convention later that year) – props up as the “go to guy” (along with the other infamous race-hustling reverend) every time a race issue makes its way onto the front page.

That way, next time he’s seen on CNN, those same 20-somethings who just assume that he’s some morally upstanding proponent of equality will finally ask out loud what the rest of us have been for years: “Just what the hell credibility does he have to talk about anything?”

Never forget.

    I’d just love to see the case re-opened, smear all those proverbial feces all over the Reverend Sharpton yet again. Yet I don’t see nay basis to reopen the case. The Statute of Limitations has long since expired.

    STill give the ratio of Eliot Spitser’s ego to brain size, there is always hope.

    I don’t know ST – I have the feeling that the MSM could turn this into another the-narrative-was-right-but-the-facts-were-wrong episode. After all, in the fake Duke rape case the MSM cherry-picked the facts to suit their preconceived notions and ignored evidence that indicated that no rape had taken place. There is every indication that this would happen with this case as well.

    To the MSM there is nothing more important than the Higher Truth (as defined by them). In this case the Higher Truth is that America is hopelessly racist and needs a vast police state monitoring speech and thought in order to “cure” it. So what if the Tawana Brawley case is a pack of lies? Like the MSM Higher Truths in the Iraq War (we are losing, al Qaeda is stronger, etc.) and socialized medicine (only the government can properly take care of you), this Higher Truth is impervious to facts.

    Perhaps a judge could force Rev Al to pay that settlement he has so far skated on. And while we are visiting yesteryear, mayhaps a trial for Sharpton’s roll in inciting the riot that lead to the burning of Freddie’s Fashion Mart and the deaths of several people. No statute of limitation on cases involving deaths, is there?

  4. Hey 2! Good to see you here. Great suggestions, although I won’t hold my breath on any of ’em happening …
