War: Larry Elder versus Piers Morgan on the Zimmerman trial

posted at 11:21 am on July 18, 2013 by Allahpundit

Actually, this isn’t about the trial so much as it’s about media orthodoxy regarding the trial’s supposed Larger Truths. And it’s not a war so much as it is Elder indicting Morgan — relentlessly — for his own small role in nurturing that orthodoxy, specifically in his treatment of Rachel Jeantel. I’ll give Piers credit for this much: Not every cable news host would arrange a segment for the express purpose of having a guest tear him apart on air. Elder came loaded for bear and Morgan let him go for 11 full minutes. Good lord. Coming soon on “Piers Morgan,” presumably: An array of gun-rights experts spends the full hour patiently explaining why Piers is a cancer on America.

Speaking of nurturing orthodoxies, I wonder when Holder’s planning to break it to America that the DOJ isn’t filing federal charges against Zimmerman and never seriously considered doing so given how weak the evidence is for a hate-crimes case.

Larry Elder was magnificent! GO LARRY!

Piers is an opportunist more than a liberal. Doesn’t lessen his disgrace, though.

Even to the point of letting Larry Elder pwn him. :)

But there is evidence of a hate crime. Trayvon hated gays so badly that he went back to give Zimmerman an azz-whoopin’. At least that is what Rachel Jeantel had to say in her Piers Morgan interview.

He isn’t going to announce it. He is going to keep stringing them along until they are out of office or the Martin family can try to file a Civil suit.

This whole racial thing was drummed up by Crump et. al. so that the Martin family could recover monies out of GZ, the Sanford Police and the Homeowner’s association. Now that the ball is rolling down hill, it is uncontrollable.

Yeah, a lack of evidence would never lead to a political showtrial.

And of course, twitter is full of hate for Elders.. Calling him an oreo, uncle tom, house N*****.. Funny when you say you have to work hard and not be a victim; then you aren’t black enough for people.

melle1228 on July 18, 2013 at 11:28 AM

As I’ve said before: Holder will indict Zimmerman for something to keep this bubbling until the election next year. The relative strength or weakness is irrelevant to that decision.

Laid back and calm and focused?

Al Sharpton, who is responsible for the death of:

Yankel Rosenbaum?

Angelina Marrero?

Cynthia Martinez?

Luz Ramos?

Mayra Rentas?

Olga Garcia?

Garnette Ramautar?

Kareem Brunner?

Al Sharpton, a man, who defamed innocent policemen and prosecutors while holding up Tawana Brawley as a victim of the ‘white man’?

Al Sharpton, a man, who slandered and libeled the Duke Lacrosse Team and beatified a hooker, who is awaiting trial for the first-degree murder of her boyfriend?

Al Sharpton, a man, who called the trial of the men, who raped a Central Park jogger and left her to bleed out 75% of her blood, a ‘lynching’?

Al Sharpton, a man that Booker T Washington presciently nailed in 1911 when he said:

‘There is (a) class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the N3gro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the N3gro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.’

That Al Sharpton?

He did perform an amazing task — He made Morgan look good. This was really dumb, which fits the topic; the precise intelligence level of Rachel Jeantel is one of the less pressing issues facing our nation today. The left will seize upon it to call any critique “racist,” and the right will seize upon it as an example of a failing educational system, but, in the end, this “debate” just serves to distract from actual issues of importance. This is Kato Kaelin all over again.

I’ve sent a number of e mails to HOT AIR asking why a link to Larry Elder’s website is not listed in the HOT AIR links section, with no response from HOT AIR. Larry is a self-described libertarian, has conservative and libertarian articles on a regular basis in national publications, and has fantastic radio show in the Los Angeles area.

Larry Elder is one of the most articulate advocates for conservative and libertarian positions that I am aware of, is a best selling author, and he is relentlessly under assault by liberals and many in the black community, for his well reasoned political and social opinions.

Is there a reason HOT AIR will feature Larry’s ferocious exchanges with liberal pundits, yet not post a link to Larry’s website? Again, I have yet to hear a response from HOT AIR on this.

Jeanel is 19 and in high school. And Piers does nothing but make excuses for her. She was sick as a child. Her grades have slipped because of what happened to Trayvon.

Stuff happens, Mr. Morgan. I missed 100 days of school one year, and still got good grades. My father was in intensive care after an accident when my senior year started, and my grades didn’t suffer.

The difference between me and Jeantel? I didn’t use the excuses to justify giving up.

I don’t understand how conservatives can call Al Sharpton a race hustler, but not recognize that Larry Elder is a hustler in reverse, he just works off white racial resentment to get paid. These things are just obvious. libfreeordie on July 18, 2013 at 11:31 AM

So, Al Sharpton is not a race hustler? You agree that Larry’s a Tom?

Liberals have problems accepting normal people. Normal people want to be left alone to raise their families and live in peace. They don’t hate groups of people, they just want to be normal.

They can see the facts involved in a problem without filters like class warfare and endemic white racism.

So if a homophobic boy jumps an Inca-Jewish-American man and gets shot, they can evaluate the facts and reach a conclusion as to who was right and who was wrong, and never consider race or poverty or what have you.

So your solution to the problem that arises from your Marxist bias is moral relativism. Both Al and Larry are vile, I guess. Unless only Larry is.

There was a similar exchange between Juan Williams and Leo Terrel. Leo is a black liberal. Leo really took Juan to the woodshed. Leo was extremely angry.

Where they’re really different is how much more laid back and calm and focused Sharpton is…in comparison.

It must be the respective audiences then. I’ve never seen Elder start a riot.

unclesmrgol on July 18, 2013 at 11:42 AM

Yep. Larry Elder has never needed a bullhorn to communicate.

Hilarious. All black people must think alike in your world. So much for diversity.

Mr. Larry Elders:

Sir, you have just earned my respect.

You are discussing issues that actually deserve being discussed!

KMC1 on July 18, 2013 at 12:14 PM

I love me some Larry Elder. Hadn’t heard him in a long time. He’s explaining the true cause and effect of some social problems, out of compassion, because he cares. And he’s calling out Piers Morgan for contributing to these problems by what Piers says and supports.

Elder said more in 11 minutes about the root problems in the Black Community then liberals have been saying in 35+ years.

workingclass artist on July 18, 2013 at 12:15 PM

A race hustler uses emotion and deceit to intentionally stir up hatred and resentment for their own profit and notoriety. Elder uses facts and logic to rebut the same. Two totally different things. But you knew that.

tommyboy on July 18, 2013 at 12:16 PM

They must really, really hate Piers in the UK….or he’s afraid of a jail sentence back home.

Some quotes from Leo…

“Shame on you, Juan Williams. You’re not a lawyer. Let me be clear, as a civil rights attorney, there was not a race case here at all and the jury got it right.”

“It’s embarrassing for me as an African American to hear Juan Williams, MSNBC, CNN talk about this case as a race case. ”

“ Don’t use this case as a race case unless you’re trying to hustle people to make money. I’m sick of this!”

“Shame On You!”

“You are embarrassing yourself!”

Libby must think the same thing about MLK’s niece and her comments. “MLK would not wear a hoodie”. Must be a – how’d libby put it – a hustler in reverse.

Haven’t heard from Bill Cosby on Saint Trayvon. Anyone?

That was balls-to-the-wall fantastic. Larry is the man.

rrpjr on July 18, 2013 at 12:24 PM

I doubt if any liberals on HA or anywhere have ever had to go into the inner city to do anything. Mr Elder has every right to be outraged because what he speaks is the truth. The truth is something liberals here on HA and elsewhere do not comprehend. It is your fault that the country is in the sorry state that it is in, own it……

It’s really gratifying watching these Black Conservatives stand up and punch back twice as hard…

The occasional Black Democrat who does this as well like Leo Terell or the Bluedog democrat in Louisiana, State Sen. Guillory who switched parties…is the icing.

The continual manipulation and general brainwashing of Blacks to underwrite the power and line the pockets of the politicians and the race hustlers that exploit them is damning…and keeps them as well as the rest of America demoralized at the local level and the national level.

“In his speech at the @Large Conference in Baton Rouge, Guillory repeatedly referred to the Democrats as ‘the party of disappointment.” He brought up his growing disgust with Democrats over issues like abortion, Benghazi, and immigration.

He accused Democrats of advocating policies that encourage a high teen birthrate, a high unemployment rate, and a high incarceration rate in the black community. He told the audience of black conservatives and their supporters that black Americans need to lead “by not putting all our eggs into one basket.”

The ‘calm and focused’ Sharpton has incited riots and the deaths of several people, on top of being a tax cheat and a deadbeat. The man is a reprobate and a public menace, and only a moral imbecile or a progressive could fail to see that.
