Dear Readers: Last week, I had a nuclear-scale rant on the LaDona Harvey show, decrying the horrendously awful reporting done by local media on Michael Kobulnicky — making him out to be some grand “Tea Party Leader”. It seems that in the rush to generate some Tea-Party-rapist meme to counter the 75-Occupuy-rape events, a little thing like the truth was overlooked. It seems that the “fiend” is not even guilty of this incident: Alleged rape victim tells judge cops got wrong man (Fox 5)
At a bail review this morning, the alleged victim told Judge Theodore Weathers that Kobulnicky was not the person who raped her. Kobulnicky’s attorneys had said Friday that their client admitted picking up the 56-year-old woman in Linda Vista as she was walking home, then having consensual sex with her on Fiesta Island.
Or, as Lipstick Underground notes: Possible Hooker Hook-up Gone Wrong? Kobulnicky Plot Thickens .
I will just note that at least this “Tea Partier” was at least willing to uphold free market values in his quest for a little female companionship; the Occupy camps….not so much. On the other hand, Charles Caesar reports: OCCUPY SAN DIEGO IS WILLING TO PAY $12/HOUR FOR ASTROTURF PROTESTERS!!!!
As Legal Insurrection’s Professor Jacobson notes, this seems to be a: Really bad day for right-wing eliminationist narratives. In regards to the Trayvon Martin death by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman that has stirred up the usual assortment of detestable race-baiters, it seems:
… George Zimmerman, rather than being a product of Republican / Tea Party / right-wing talk radio, was a registered Democrat.
However, when Sharpton, Jackson, and the others heard the name “Zimmerman”, the thought of him being a Hispanic Democrat most likely did not fit into the narrative. It would be a chuckle if Zimmerman voted for Obama in the 2008, and I wonder what his thoughts would be about the tasteless Obama 2012 hoodie. My own thoughts about this entire sad fiasco are summarized in this graphic:
Which leads me to the supposed El Cajon “hate crime” involving a Muslim woman and a tire iron. Honor Killing in California?
Color me skeptical on this “hate crime” of the brutal murder of a Muslim mom in El Cajon, California. It doesn’t add up. A glass window or, in other news reports, a glass door is broken, and the mom is beaten to death with a tire iron. Her daughter is upstairs in this rather small house and she hears nothing? The daughter’s interview is strange. No tears. Lots of theater. The girl does not seem at all upset by the death of her mom.
(VIDEO AT LINK). Strange performance.
Was there a history of abuse in the family? There is no history of any racial division in this town, according to law enforcement. Perhaps the murderer is counting on a ‘Fatima Abdullah’ reaction: where a woman is honor murdered and law enforcement fears classifying it as an honor killing so as not to enflame the Muslim community. That was why Fatima Abdullah’s honor murder was classified as a suicide, according to an informant in the medical examiner’s office.
The Muslim Brotherhood groups, CAIR et al, are banging the victim war drum, as victimhood is their battle cry. And big media, nationally and internationally, is picking up on the hate crime rampant in El Cajon, despite the fact there have been no incidents of any hate or religious bias. NONE.
Despite the fact that some are deeming this incident a “hate crime”… “Redman said the ECPD had never before recorded a hate crime against Iraqis or Chaldeans, tens of thousands of whom live in the East County. In response to a reporter’s question, the chief said police also had seen no indications of any notable “hostility” toward that segment of the local population.”
Most comments in the news coverage of this story also are highly skeptical of the hate-crime angle. I will stay tuned for further developments. If the elite media were smart, they would down-play the hate crime angle until the investigation shows otherwise. We’ll see if they catch a clue from the mistakes made in covering Kobulnicky or Zimmerman.
