Hey media: A very bad week for black lives in Baltimore (and gay rights in the Middle East)
Senator Cruz fought back, and I hope that other GOP candidates paid attention.
It's about time for the GOP to call out reporters who just want to talk about same-sex marriage, birth control pills, and "hands up don't shoot."
In the meantime, ISIS is advancing in the Middle East and throwing homosexuals off roofs to their deaths. They are determined to exterminate – yes, I said exterminate – homosexuals, as we read in news reports:
In its crusade against homosexuals, the Islamic State is now resorting to sting operations, using jihadists posing as gay men to coax out offenders and execute them.
Over in Baltimore, violence is rampant, and black-on-black crime is out of control. Thursday night, Geraldo Rivera nailed it:
Earlier today, Baltimore registered the 100th homicide this year. Baltimore has almost as many homicides as New York. 600,000. New York is 8.4 million. 15 times the murder rate of New York. Baltimore is right now. It seems that -- I believe the Freddie Gray case will mark the decline into irrelevancy of the modern civil rights movement. It seems that they are only interested, black lives matter. Black lives matter only when they're killed by cops, particularly white cops. Where is the outrage on the 100th Baltimore citizen who's been shot dead this year? There is none. And I think now you have the cops backing off. Arrests are plummeting. Baltimore will become -- Mark used the term a blood bath. It's a killing zone.
Are the media confronting Democrats about black-on-black crime? Will they ask Hillary Clinton about this, or simply allow her to float along with her scripted events?
We have serious problems, from ISIS to crime in our inner cities, but the media are obsessed with same-sex marriage.
Memo to some reporters: it was a horrible week for "gay rights" over there, as Senator Cruz said. It was a horrible week for "black lives" over here, as Geraldo Rivera said.
It's time to get serious in this country.
