WND's Farah: Don't Mourn for That Commie Mandela Topic: WorldNetDaily
Joseph Farah devotes his Dec. 6 WorldNetDaily column to remembering Nelson Mandela by trashing him, under the headline "Don't Mourn for Mandela":
Maybe you say: “But Farah, he was fighting against the evil of Apartheid!”
Yes, that is true. Apartheid was inarguably an evil and unjustifiable system. But so is the system Mandela’s revolution brought about – one in which anti-white racism is so strong today that a prominent genocide watchdog group has labeled the current situation a “precursor” to the deliberate, systematic elimination of the race.
In other words, the world has been sold a bill of goods about Mandela. He wasn’t the saintly character portrayed by Morgan Freeman. He wasn’t someone fighting for racial equality. He was the leader of a violent, Communist revolution that has nearly succeeded in all of its grisly horror.
If apartheid was so evil, why does WND employ a columnist, Ilana Mercer, who laments the end of that evil system?
And as we've previously noted, the group that labeled the current situation in South Afrida "a 'precursor' to the deliberate, systematic elimination of the race" has since reduced its alert level.
Farah also writes:
You will read today many stories describing Mandela as a “political prisoner.”
In fact, he served 27 years in prison for 23 specific acts of sabotage and attempting to overthrow the government.
It was only a year ago that some of the international press began to report the truth about Mandela for the first time. Last December, the London Telegraph reported that, indeed, the records showed Mandela was not only a member of the South African Communist Party, he held a “senior rank.”
By the way, Mandela was offered his freedom while incarcerated many times. All he had to do was renounce terrorism. He wouldn’t do it.
Farah leaves out a lot of context. Given that much of the Western world, incluiding the United States, condoned if not outright supported pro-apartheid governments in South Africa, Mandela had to find support from somewhere.
Farah's claim that Mandela stayed in prison only because he refused to renounce terrorism ignores what Mandela actually said on the subject:
What freedom am I being offered while the organisation of the people remains banned? What freedom am I being offered when I may be arrested on a pass offence? What freedom am I being offered to live my life as a family with my dear wife who remains in banishment in Brandfort? What freedom am I being offered when I must ask for permission to live in an urban area? What freedom am I being offered when I need a stamp in my pass to seek work? What freedom am I being offered when my very South African citizenship is not respected?
Only free men can negotiate. Prisoners cannot enter into contracts.
In other words, his freedom would be meaningless in a country that still practiced apartheid.
Finally, we suspect that Farah's disdain for Mandela "attempting to overthrow the government" doesn't similarly apply to anyone attempting to overthrow the Obama administration, like WND columnists Larry Klayman and Erik Rush.
(P.S. Yes, the above image is really the cover of the current issue of WND Weekly.)
WND Reacts Unhappily to Pope's Critique of Capitalism Topic: WorldNetDaily
There have been a lot of outraged right-wing reactions to Pope Francis' critique of capitalism. WorldNetDaily, of course, can't help but take it to the next level.
Johnathan Moseley took the pope's words quite hard, lamenting in a Dec. 1 WND column that "Jesus was a capitalist, preaching personal responsibility, not a socialist," adding: "Jesus Christ is weeping in heaven hearing Christians espouse a socialist philosophy that has created suffering and poverty around the world. It is impossible to love one’s neighbor as yourself without fighting against socialism, meaning government meddling in private lives."
Ileana Johnson Paugh used her Dec. 3 column to bring in the conspiratorial ranting WND is famous for, claiming that the pope's "social justice" gospel was really an invention of the KGB:
The Latin American pope from Buenos Aires spoke for the masses that are still waiting for “social justice.” Yet the United States always pledges and helps when tragedy strikes; Americans give generously of their wealth, time and expertise. “Social justice” is an entirely different manufactured creature.
According to Lt. Gen. Ion Pacepa, the Soviet communist-led idea of “social justice” was infiltrated successfully by the KGB into Latin America’s Catholic Church as a religious movement called “liberation theology.” The goal was to “incite Latin America’s poor to rebel against the ‘institutionalized violence of poverty’ generated by the United States.” (Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, “Disinformation,” WND Books, 2013)
From the government’s point of view, what kind of “social justice” are the masses waiting for when pining for socialism and communism? They are waiting to vote again and again for the same individuals and socialist or communist governments that brought them to poverty and kept them perennially downtrodden. They are waiting for socialist governments to give them welfare and free minimal health care through Castro clinics while they stay home and procreate more dependents. They are waiting for the redistribution of wealth from productive citizens. They are enslaved to their governments that decide their daily lives, yet they are told their enslavement is the United States’ fault.
WND -- never one to let an opportunity for self-promotion go to waste -- followed up with an article by Jerome Corsi highlighting how Moseley's column was cited by an Italian journalist.
WND Portrays 'Ethnic Cleansing' (As Claimed By Pro-Apartheid Dead-Enders) As 'Nelson Mandela's Legacy' Topic: WorldNetDaily
Following the death of Nelson Mandela, WorldNetDaioly sent out a tweet stating: "Nelson Mandela's Legacy: JEW BEARS CHRISTIAN WITNESS TO ETHNIC CLEANSING."
The link went to WND's Facebook page, which in turn linked to a 2011 article by Ilana Mercer, WND's resident apartheid-lover, touting how "a “pro-Boer Israeli human rights activist” by the name of Avigdor Eskin visited South Africa on a fact-finding tour" in which he criticized the "ANC-regime’s 'silent genocide' of the … Afrikaner-Boers in South Africa."
What Mercer doesn't tell you: Eskin supports apartheid. In a 2010 Faceook post attributed to Eskin, he writes that "Apartheid was not practiced slavery, but in fact to create optimal conditions for the development of blacks," adding that "Apartheid has emerged as a humane embodiment of the ideas of the ninth chapter of the first books of the Bible."
If Eskin's Wikipedia page is correct, Eskin is also a former member of Meir Kahane's violent far-right Kach movement and laid a death curse on Yitzak Rabin in response to the Oslo Accords.
Note to WND: Right-wing pro-apartheid dead-enders are probably not the most objective source of information about Nelson Mandela.
WND Promotes Allen West's Gun Conspiracy, Ignores That It's Plagiarized Topic: WorldNetDaily
WorldNetDaily finds another Obama conspiracy to latch onto in an unbylined Dec. 3 article:
Former U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., is joining the National Rifle Association and other gun-rights groups to warn about a back-door attack on the Second Amendment by the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency.
In a column posted on his website Sunday, West wrote about the Doe Run company’s lead-producing plant in Herculaneum, Mo., which is being forced to close after the EPA required it to spend up to $100 million on upgrades.
Doe Run, the last primary lead smelter in the United States, has been around since 1892 but is closing on Dec. 31.
West accused Obama of using the EPA to advance “backdoor gun control … while we are all distracted with Obamacare and Iran nuclear negotiations.”
WND won't tell you, however, that West apparently plagiarized a good portion of his column from another right-wing writer, as Tea Party Poison discovered. After the plagiarism was revealed, West's column was re-edited to remove much (but not all) of the plagiarized material.
NEW ARTICLE: Mr. Washington, Meet Mr. Godwin Topic: WorldNetDaily
For a guy who insists he's not likening President Obama to Nazis, WorldNetDaily's Ellis Washington sure loves to liken Obama to Nazis. Read more >>
WND: Obama Wants To Infect You With HIV! Topic: WorldNetDaily
The teaser headline on WorldNetDaily's front page today reads, "Does Obama Want You Infected With This?"
The article itself, by Chelsea Schilling, is about discussion of ending the ban on gay males donating blood. She apparently talked to only person for the article, who opposes lifting the ban. The article is heavily biased toward opposing lifting the ban, raising the specter of the blood supply becoming contaminated with HIV. As Media Matters notes, Schilling fails to mention that the American Medical Association favors lifting the ban.
The funny thing about the article? Obama is not mentioned anywhere in it. Nowhere.
In other words, WND is not just engaging in homophobic scaremongering, it's lying. Again.
The Intolerant, Homophobic Les Kinsolving Topic: WorldNetDaily
Les Kinsolving has always been a raging homophobe. So much so, in fact, that his Dec. 1 WorldNetDaily column really does argue that if a homosexual is not "mute," he or she is "militant," even if it's Dick Cheney's daughter:
There was once a day in this nation when lesbians and others with alternate sexual orientations were comparatively mute.
There has developed a militancy that may well know no bounds, and that has torn apart the family of the former vice president of the United States.
Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is running for U.S. senator from Wyoming.
Liz has stated publicly that she does not believe in same-sex marriage.
For that, she has been publicly denounced by her militant lesbian sister, Mary Cheney, and Mary’s similarly militant lesbian mate, Heather Poe.
The Cheney sisters, reported the Times, have not spoken (to each other) since the summer, and Mary declared she would not reconcile with Liz unless she changed her position on marriage.
“Liz’s position is to treat my family as second-class citizens. That’s not a position I can be ‘lovingly tolerant’ toward.”
This really begs a question: How would lesbian Mary expect her sister to regard her orientation if she were polyandrous (female polygamy), a pedophile, incestuous or necrophiliac?
Yes, Kinsolving is once again falsely equating homosexuality, pedophilia and necrophilia. That's how homophobic Kinsolving is.
WND's Farah Pretends Colin Flaherty Is A 'Journalist,' Not A Race-Baiter Topic: WorldNetDaily
Joseph Farah makes two major errors in his Dec. 1 WorldNetDaily column.
First, he portrays Colin Flaherty as a "journalist":
Journalist Colin Flaherty recognized the trend long before anyone else in America – before the corporate media, before me, before Matt Drudge.
He began tracking a noticeable and undeniable upswing in black-on-non-black racist violence – either in mob form or via what has become known as “the knockout game,” in which perpetrators took at least one unprovoked punch at an unsuspecting and innocent victim.
Two years ago, Flaherty’s work got my attention. He had self-published a remarkable book called “White Girl Bleed A Lot” about this phenomenon. WND enlisted Flaherty to chronicle these attacks for publication and made arrangements to re-publish a vastly updated, bestselling edition of the book – one that would allow readers to see, with their own eyes, hundreds of attacks actually caught on video by perpetrators or bystanders.
Flaherty is not a journalist -- he's a race-baiting radio host.
Second, Farah assumes that every instance of black-on-white violence Flaherty has documented is driven by racism:
Despite the recognition of the story by many other media outlets, precious few have credited either Flaherty or WND for the relentless, heavily criticized reporting that broke through the long news blackout that allowed this unprovoked racial violence to go virtually unnoticed for two years.
We also need victims to tell their stories. If you have been victimized by racial mob violence or the so-called “knock-out game,” you have an eager and willing advocate here at WND. Let us know the details of what you have experienced so we can continue to raise awareness of the way racist violence is rearing its ugly head in America, again.
What’s the danger of not pursuing this epidemic of social pathology?
The danger is obvious and even more frightening – the provocation of something resembling a race war.
Again, Flaherty's work does nothing other than demonstrate his race-baiting. Why else would he put non-blacks (and non-humans) in his "black mobs?
Because Flaherty has never bothered to prove that an inordinate amount of the "black mob violence" he obsessively documents is "racist," he has no basis to claim there's a trend here -- and Farah has no basis to claim there is "something resembling a race war" happening here.
emember, for WND it's all about perception, not reality -- as we've noted, Flaherty and WND don't claim to be documenting an actual epidemic of "black mob violence" -- only what what appears to be an epidemic.
The fact that Farah is begging readers to tell their "racist violence" stories to WND is all the evidence you need that he's trying to create something that doesn't exist. He has a book to sell, after all.
And the fact that Farah apparently can't tell the difference between a journalist and a race-baiter is yet another clue as to why nobody believes WND.
WND Touts Rabbi With Ties to Terrorist-Linked Group Topic: WorldNetDaily
A Dec. 2 WorldNetDaily article steals and rewrites a New York Post article about a New York rabbi who teaches karate:
There’s a solution to the problem of New York Jews being singled out by “Knockout Game” attackers, says a New York rabbi turned Karate sensei.
Teach them martial arts.
When Rabbi Gary Moskowitz, now 56, was growing up in the Soundview section of the Bronx, he got beaten up a lot, he recalls. So he took up karate.
At age 14, he went to a Jewish Defense League summer camp.
“I came back, and I was able to do 400 pushups,” he told the New York Post.
If the Jewish Defense League sounds familiar, it should: As we detailed when then-NewsBusters bloger Cinnamon Stillwell defended JDL-linked bomber Earl Krugel, the JDL has been associated with numerous acts of violence since its founding by far-right activist Meir Kahane. The most notorious of those is Baruch Goldstein's massacre of 30 Arabs at Hebron's Tomb of the Patriarchs.
Moskowitz told the New York Times in 2010 that he had been attracted to Kahane as a “dumb kid” and later turned against him. But a flyer promoting a series of films about Moskowitz describes one film as lionizing his JDL experience:
This story is about the renowned Jewish Defense League (JDL) through the eyes of a young high school yeshiva and later public school student. Moskowitz, as a young high school student learned to fight back against the tyranny of the streets and the apathy in the community by joining the new Jewish Defense League. Moskowitz became a born again Jew after enlisting in the JDL training camp. The camp consisted of several hours of daily karate training, a couple of hours of weapons (arms) training, intensive Jewish education in Jewish history, law, Zionism, philosophy and the holocaust and military instruction and drilling.
Following the training camp the JDL story is told through Moskowitz’ participation in the many demonstrations against the Russian mission, the rally against the Klan in Heights town NJ, protecting Jewish teachers and Jewish people on school boards who were being threatened by gangs for voting in the West Bronx, and many other actins [sic] JDL became known for. Later the story focuses of the conflict Moskowitz had with Rabbi Kahane founder and head of the JDL.
While Moskowitz appears to be doing good things these days, the JDL connection is troubling. As recently as 2001, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the FBI considered the JDL a terrorist organization.
Of course, given that WND writer Aaron Klein has his own Kahanist sympathies, it's not really much of a surprise that WND would promote Moskowitz.
WND editor Joseph Farah makes his birther leanings quite clear in his Nov. 29 WND column:
I know Obama will continue to outrage me and millions of other Americans. That won’t stop. But he will never be quite the same after being taken down several notches. He will be desperate. He will push harder than ever to accomplish his evil objectives as his time runs out. But that’s as it should be for a falling political star whose legacy has already been written.
I’ve never acknowledged him as president.
To me he has always been – and will always be – the illegal, illegitimate occupant of the White House. He’s little more than a bad, deadbeat tenant, exercising his squatter rights.
Does this sound like a guy who doesn't regret spending years peddling discredited claims about Obama's birth certificate? Didn't think so.
WND Tries To Build False Mystique Around Obama-Bashing Speech Topic: WorldNetDaily
On Jan. 21, at a so-called Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast -- to which WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah was invited, disinvited, re-invited, then ultimately didn't bother to attend -- Farah buddy Jonathan Cahn gave a pretty standard right-wing, evangelical Christian, Obama-bashing speech, tying in his book "The Harbinger," which claims that the 9/11 attacks were a judgement from God. Weirdly, it took two weeks for WND to write up an article summarizing the speech.
Now, WND is trying to promote Cahn's months-old speech by creating a mystique about it. From a Nov. 30 article:
Given the moral and spiritual state of the nation, some have called it “the most important speech given in modern American history.”
It was delivered by Jonathan Cahn, author of the best-selling book “The Harbinger,” Jan. 21, 2013, the morning of Barack Obama’s second presidential inauguration, at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast. The unofficial gathering, which included members of Congress, government leaders and Christian ministers, took place just one hour before Obama took the oath of the presidency.
“[The address] was a prophetic exposé of America’s fall from God, a revealing of the biblical signs of judgment manifesting in America, and a call to return,” said Joseph Farah, producer of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” the No. 1 faith movie of 2012 and 2013 based on Cahn’s teachings.
The speech became pointed when Cahn addressed his words to Obama: “Can you lay your left hand upon His Word and then with your right hand enact laws against it? Can you invoke the name of God to assume the presidency and then use the presidency in any way to endorse that which clearly wars against the ways of the God you invoke? … Can you utter the words ‘so help me God’ if you should in any way take part in helping to lead a nation away from the God whose help you invoke?”
Those who were present described Cahn’s address as electrifying, a prophetic clarion call and nothing short of a historic moment. At the speech’s end, the gathering erupted into what one observer described as “a near riot.”
Soon after the speech, a recording of it began spreading across the Internet like wildfire. At the same time, viewers began noticing that as quickly as it was being posted, it was being taken down.
Thousands of viewers began noticing that as they tried to repost it and send it to others, the links to the speech were going dead. Confusion and speculation spread through social media.
WND even received threats for trying to air it.
Note that not a thing WND alleges happened has any documented evidence to back it up:
Who called the speech "the most important speech given in modern American history"?
Who described Cahn's speech as "electrifying, a prophetic clarion call and nothing short of a historic moment"? (We know Farah didn't, because he couldn't be bothered to attend.)
Who was the "observer" that called the after speech scene a "near riot"? What were they "near rioting" against? The audience was cheering Cahn's words at the end of the speech, which is not the definition of "near riot."
Who was taking down copies of the speech from the Internet?
Who threatened WND for "trying to air" the speech? What did those threats say?
WND provides no answers for these questions, which raises the question of whether any of it happened at all and WND is just trying to create a controversy in order to generate clicks.
The dishonesty extends to the headline. It reads, "the speech you were never supposed to see" in quote marks, but nobody is quoted in the article as saying that.
If this was such a big, important speech, why did WND fail to write about it until two weeks later? And why did WND fail to post a video of it until now, months after the fact?
We don't care whether or not WND posts a video of Cahn's speech. We do care, however, that WND appears to falsely trying to inflate its importance by creating a myth around it by making claims WND won't document.
WND's Farah Peddles More Obama Lies Topic: WorldNetDaily
Joseph Farah just can't stop lying about President Obama.
In his Nov. 28 WorldNetDaily column, Farah pretends he's not denigrating Obama's faith -- "I’m not saying he is not a believer. I’m not saying he is a Muslim masquerading as a Christian" -- then goes on to do exactly that through falsehoods and distortions.
Farah writes: "Obama released a reading of the Gettysburg Address he did at the request of filmmaker Ken Burns. What were the only words missing from the actual Gettysburg Address as delivered by Abraham Lincoln? 'Under God.'" Farah didn't mention that was because the draft of the address Burns had Obama read did not have "under God" in it.
Farah also wrote: "In 2009, Obama announced in Turkey, of all places, that America was no longer a Christian nation. 'We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values,' he said." Notice how Farah twists Obama's words. Obama never said America was no longer a Christian nation, as Farah claims -- he said that America is defined by a set of priniciples that transcends religion.
Farah writes: "Also in 2008, Obama called the recitation of the Shahada, the Muslim confession of faith, 'one of the prettiest sounds on Earth.' In an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in the New York Times, Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, 'with a first-class [Arabic] accent.' The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada: “Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that Muhammad is his prophet … ' According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim’s complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam." Farah doesn't seem to understand that one can appreciate the faith of others, or even how a prayer sounds, while not following it themselves.
Finally, Farah lapses into the Obama derangement his website is famous for:
Let’s just face facts.
Obama is hostile to Christianity in any orthodox form. He’s hostile to Catholicism. He’s hostile to evangelicalism. And he seems to be hostile to the faith that formed the root of all Christianity – the faith of Hebrew patriarchs.
Should we stop being surprised, then, when Obama censors words like “God” from important American historical documents?
I think not.
He is simply shaking off the vestiges of hypocrisy he clung to publicly to win the presidency. Today, Obama’s antipathy to the God of Israel is right out there in the open.
Who appointed Farah to be the arbiter of proper Christianity? Nobody that we can recall.
Jesse Lee Peterson Buys Into 'Knockout Game' Hysteria, Blames Obama and Oprah Topic: WorldNetDaily
Jesse Lee Peterson writes in a Nov. 28 WorldNetDaily column:
Did you ever imagine that, in America, groups of black thugs would attack unsuspecting whites? Did you ever think the first black president and Oprah Winfrey would encourage division and hatred between races?
In today’s America, that’s the unfortunate reality.
In what many tamely call the “knockout game,” black teenagers target whites to attack them without provocation. The aim is to knock the victim unconscious with one blow. Man, woman, young or old – it doesn’t matter – these thugs do not care.
Despite the facts, mainstream media outlets refuse to truthfully report these black-on-white hate crimes. Some outright call it a “myth.” When the media downplay these crimes or omit the racial component, they put lives at risk. Imagine if whites victimized blacks today. There would be wall-to-wall coverage and President Obama and Oprah would both be on TV condemning it.
How did we get to a point where lawless blacks are able to commit violent crimes and get away with it? More importantly: How can we stop it?
Peterson is basically lying. As we've pointedout, there's no evidence that the "knockout game" is exclusively a black thing, driven by racism, or even that it exists as a trend over and above existing crime rates. And there's even less evidence that blacks are "getting away with it."
But the fact that it doesn't exist isn't going to keep Peterson from blaming President Obama and Oprah Winfrey for it:
Hatred for whites is reinforced and encouraged in black movies, hate-filled rap music and by black leaders: Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, Barack Obama and even Oprah Winfrey.
Oprah recently stated that white opposition to Barack Obama was rooted in racism and that older whites “just have to die” for racism to diminish.
Oprah has made billions of dollars thanks to white people who watch her shows and buy products she endorses. For her to smear millions of whites as “racist” without proof is despicable.
Her race baiting is akin to Obama accusing the white Cambridge, Mass., police officers of “acting stupidly.” Or when Obama weighed in after the Trayvon Martin shooting and said to highlight the racial factor: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Shameful!
This type of racial demagoguery coming from influential blacks fuels anger toward whites and the judicial system – this is what is encouraging these blacks to attack whites.
Peterson then offers up a solution:
First, whites have to get over the fear of being called “racist.” Most whites are terrified of this word and recoil when a black person hurls it at them. Blacks understand the effect this word has, and they use it to shut down honest dialogue about race. This hurts race relations and divides the country like nothing else.
White people must speak out against black racism, no matter where it rears its ugly head. There are a few blacks who have the courage to speak honestly about immorality within the black culture, and whites should work with them to help unite the races with truth.
Most white Americans will not tolerate racism toward blacks from their own family members and friends – but they turn a blind eye to the black racism that’s landing white people in hospitals and morgues. It’s time to speak up, and it’s time to end the racial double standard!
Apparently, refraining from recklessly and baselessly accusing people of having racist motives is not part of Peterson's solution to this non-existent problem.
Irony: WND Columnist Laments Dearth of Honest Reporters Topic: WorldNetDaily
Jim Fletcher begins his Nov. 28 WorldNetDaily column this way:
It’s a myth that reporters always “just report” the news. Further, it is a myth that media bias is a new thing. If we are honest, we understand that folks have been manipulating data and facts and narrative since the beginning of time.
WND's Cashill Still Making Excuses for Zimmerman Topic: WorldNetDaily
Jack Cashill's bias in the death of Trayvon Martin has been simple: Martin's extracurricular behavior should be held against him even though there's scant evidence it was at play in his death, while his shooter, George Zimmerman, cannot be held accountable for his actions because he's the real victim.
That double standard is all too clear in Cashill's Nov. 27 WorldNetDaily column. In it, he complains that the Orlando Sentinel ran a "tasteless" article speculating on cast members for an imaginary Trayvon Martin movie, making sure to whine that "I can assure you that there has been no bidding war for the rights to my book." Cashill, meanwhile, has endorsed murder, which is arguable even more tasteless than anything the Sentinel could come up with.
Cashill goes on to complain that "the paper chose to know as little as possible about the real Trayvon Martin." He then launches yet another defense of Zimmerman, declaring that the five guns seized from Zimmerman's house after his arrest for domestic violence were "legally owned" and was not an "excessive" number, adding that thanks to the Sentinel, Zimmerman was "the most openly hunted man in America since Dillinger."
Of course, Cashill doesn't mention that his unquestioning defense of Zimmerman as a civil rights martyr even as Zimmerman becomes increasingly violent -- just the latest example of Cashill's soft spot for killers -- is probably the reason nobody's interested in optioning his book for a movie.
You'd think Cashill by now had gotten to the point where Zimmerman is no longer defensible. But he did write a book defending the guy, and now he has decided he won't cut his losses, choosing against all reason to continue lay in that particular bed he made.
