According to the “sociologists” and race hucksters consulted by the New York Times, race should be considered in the Zimmerman trial except that Zimmerman’s race (hispanic) should not be considered because he is a “white hispanic” and just the son of a “Peruvian.”
And race should be considered in the trial except for considering Zimmerman’s state of mind in light of the overwhelming statistics showing that Trayvon Martin’s race commits violent crimes at a rate drastically disproportionate to its population percentage . . .
New Jersey’s very own version of the New York Times, the Newark Star-Ledger, will stop the presses permanently at year’s end unless it wins major concessions from its production unions. The newspaper, according to publisher Richard Vezza, feels “pushed into a corner” by the unions.
The Star-Ledger’s lament is made without a trace of irony despite its relentless vilification of other businesses threatened and destroyed by union tactics.
The unions reacted predictably:
“Vezza’s announcement that he will cease publication unless a settlement is reached with all the unions is another sad and pathetic attempt to pound all of our union brothers and sisters into a state of submission,” said Ed Shown, president of the Council of Star-Ledger Unions and one of the Teamsters locals.
Perhaps the Star-Ledger can again follow the lead of its mentor, the New York Times, and crawl, hat in hand, to Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.
