As details emerge about a truly disturbing story covered on these pages, in which a white special needs man was brutally tortured by at least four young black adults, the scope and callous disregard for human life expressed by the assailants becomes more and more clear.
It is sickening. But were details really necessary to come to that conclusion? Could you not watch the video and understand immediately that this was a hate crime, a politically motivated crime, and very clearly, a race crime?
The victim was bound, repeatedly kicked and hit, had his scalp cut and burned with cigarettes, and forced to drink from a toilet, all while being forced to shout “f*** Donald Trump! F*** white people!”
But the liberal media has a double standard to enforce. They are saying the Chicago attack is not hate. That it is not racially motivated.
It’s proof, as Steven Crowder says, that the media has zero interest in fixing racism in our country. They are only interested in using it as a means to further a liberal agenda.
#BLMKidnapping and the media's reaction is proof positive that the left doesn't care about racism. Only when it's a political tool.

The assault has finally and begrudgingly been labeled a ‘hate crime’ by authorities, and the suspects have been charged accordingly.
But how is the left-wing media portraying this?
CNN’s Don Lemon said he couldn’t describe the attack as a hate crime, and that the heinous acts in the video weren’t evil but rather, simply a case of bad parenting.
Don Lemon: Suspects just "bad home training." I can't thank my parents enough for teaching me it's wrong to kidnap/torture mentally impaired

Major Democrat strategist Symone Sanders agreed that the incident was not a hate crime. In fact, the attack is Donald Trump’s fault!

Tariq Nasheed truly went off the rails, saying that categorizing the recially-charged Chicago attack as a race-inspired hate crime is a way to punish “all black people.”
Calling a random crime the #BLMKidnapping is just another white supremacist tactic to implicate and ultimately punish ALL Black people

New York Daily News columnist Shaun King, a major figure in the Black Lives Matter movement, said he won’t even bother to fight for justice for the victim… because he doesn’t want to say anything bad about Black Lives Matter.
The fact is, the mainstream media doesn’t care about racism. They care about their agenda. Charging the black torturers with a hate crime would disrupt their constant narrative that America is a racist country out to destroy the black community.
The immediate reaction of the media speaks volumes: don’t allow a message that could create sympathy for Trump or his supporters.
There’s a word for that …

Indeed, the media – collectively – is a psychopath. And it’s nearly as sickening as the heinous act we saw in Chicago itself.
