On the Murder of Cannon Hinnant
The MAGA Cult, which has for decades used the unborn child as a human shield for its racism, cruelty, sadism, and murder of the brown and poor is now using a little boy named Cannon Hinnant who was murdered by some black guy in order to weaponize his death against those protesting racism.
Here is how the kabuki works. First, lie that “the media” is refusing to cover the story the racist want to use to spread his racism.
This strategery is dumb but it works on dumb people. Why is it dumb? Because translated into simple English (the only kind the stupid people who do this understand) it boils down to this:
When a right wing racist moron tells you “the media” is not covering something, you can bet your life that the story he is blathering about is one he got….FROM THE MEDIA. Often the moron will include a link from the media to tell you about the story the media is allegedly “afraid to cover”.
As of this writing, if you google “Cannon Hinnant” you will get 770,000 hits on “the story the media is afraid to cover”.
So what is the purpose of this lie? Simple. What is being spoken here is that all blacks are guilty of the murder of this child and we need to stop paying attention to the systemic racism that killed George Floyd and many others.
Here is how to dispel that lie:
It is utterly characteristic of the MAGA “prolife” white fertility cult of death to cynically use the horrible murder of this child, not to work for the defense of children’s lives, but to work for the defense of racist murderers.
This boy was not murdered because his murderer was black and still less because all black people or the media are part of some plot to kill white children. George Floyd is not the opposite of this child. They were both victims of murder. And the media covered this story exactly as much as you would expect a murder should be covered given that the murderer was caught and not sheltered by a corrupt institutional structure.
What the racists behind such memes don’t tell you is that the real lesson here is that this man, like the slaughterer of children at Sandy Hook and the slaughterer of children at El Paso had a gun he never should have had.
