"The Real Tragedy At Duke" Is The Real Tragedy--Revisited

"The Real Tragedy At Duke"

"Even if the Duke boys shake the rape charge, it's
hard to feel much sympathy for them. You can see them going through life like
it's all one big fraternity party. The sense one gleans of why they're getting a
university education is to acquire a pedigree and technical skills so they can
afford the accoutrements for the party."
Star Parker

Star Parker, a 49-year-old former welfare fraud, prostitute, and druggie; reportedly found Jesus many years ago and has since become a media darling of the extreme right-wing. Thus, she is now a conservative media whore who parrots the views of such inspiring 'voices of reason' as those of Rush Limbaugh, James Dobson, Rev. Sun Myung Moon. She is also among the pantheon of such GOPUSA stars as Gannon/Guckert and surely must sit at the knees of fellow minority conservatives lihe Armstrong Williams,etc.
Star's column appearing May,1 on multiple sites including GOPUSA and Capital Hill Blue is truly a vile exercise in the " public lynching " of the presumed-innocent young men from Duke University : ...........

Ms Parker cleverly and deliberately constructs her article as a real-life re-enactment of the sordid fictional event graphically depicted in a movie of recent vintage: " For me, the story has conjured up images from a depressing and gruesome film of a number of years ago, 'Leaving Las Vegas'. The film served up to the audience a distillation of the worst that life has to offer. "
Thus Ms Parker is then able to continuously juxtapose the Duke undergrads with, " the two-legged animals who ravaged " the fictional woman in the film and Ms Parker spares no odious detail in the doing.
Incredibly, she even skewers the media for placing too much emphasis on the story; " And, of course, there is the media, loving every minute of this. ". In fact, about the only party not skewered by Ms Parker is the insanely incompetent District Attorney running amuck in Durham for political purposes.
Ms Parker finally tips her hand in this telling conclusion to her atrocious tale of moral indignation so dutifully reported throughout the Corporate Media: " Even if the Duke boys shake the rape charge, it's hard to feel much sympathy for them.".

On May 3,2006, I published the above article regarding the unconscionable actions of D.A. Mike Nifong, Duke University Officials, Main Stream Media, Hysterical "Former Prosecutors"--mostly female -Talking Cable TV Heads who convicted the three Duke students on day 1 and sensationalist media writers--again mostly female such as Star Parker-- who engaged in continuous crucifixions of the young men from Duke.
Now it appears almost certain we have another Tawanna Brawley case generated by odious acts of political treachery and unfortunate opportunism on the part of faux victims.
NEWSWEEK magazine has now concluded the case is most certainly bogus as is being reported in its most recent edition.
Who will restore justice to the three young men?
It won't be any of the aforementioned cretins! As I am a betting man,.. anyone care to bet!
