Interesting reading indeed: The Week That Was by Managing Editor It seems the mainstream media has run out of stories to run about killer white cops and ‘horribly blonde’ rapists at elite universities who proved to be fictional so they have reached into the archives to reveal that George Stinney, a black teenager was executed in 1944 for the murder of two white girls in South Carolina. Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen has ruled, in the wisdom of hindsight that the conviction was an ‘injustice’ because the confession was unsound and cleared the deceased of any wrongdoing. This has been a huge windfall to the networks who have used the story to remind European-Americans that they are a nasty bunch and must continue to repent for the sins of their forefathers. While punting this story for all it’s worth an African-American Muslim ‘executed’ two ‘white police officers in New York in a revenge attack. Liberal politicians and their media-mouthpieces can take a bow. With the arrival of Jihadist terro ...
