Why can’t the phony media find any self-righteous outrage in this story?
Almost seventy years ago, then-20-year-old Bob Strait went off to war as a young man who wanted to protect his country. When he was sworn into the Army, he understood that he was being asked to risk his life for all Americans, not just those who looked like him.
Although he wouldn’t be comfortable being called one, Bob was a war hero. He was a member of the fearsome Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne – the tough guys – the real tough guys.
On Thanksgiving Day in 1946, Bob met the girl of his dreams. He was 25, and she was 20. Her name was Nancy, and her beauty and charm made him fall so deeply in love that after a month, he married her. That happy Thanksgiving Day brought about a marriage that produced six children and led to 18 grandchildren and nearly 50 great grandchildren.
Last December, when they celebrated their sixty fifth wedding anniversary, no one could have imagined what would happen to them. Just three months later, the nearly blind and totally helpless 85-year-old Nancy would be raped and murdered, and Bob’s attempts to save her would lead to a severe beating that has left him so damaged his family prays he doesn’t regain consciousness. This is because they don’t want to tell him what happened. Their life together came to a sudden end two weeks ago when a team of cowardly predators broke into their Tulsa Oklahoma home and savagely attacked them.
Why haven’t we heard about this from the news distorting American media? Why did we have to read about this atrocity in the London Daily Mail?
Unfortunately, the answer is glaringly obvious: The suspect the police have captured driving Bob’s car is a 20 year old black thug, and the Straits are white.
The proceeds of this push in robbery were a car, a television and $200 in cash. That’s what Nancy’s life and personal dignity were worth to these animals.
The Straits were so poor that their children have appealed to the public for help to pay the bills for Bob and retire the debts incurred from Nancy’s funeral.
Imagine how this story would have been handled had the Straits been black and the suspect was white? Why can’t the phony media find any self-righteous outrage in this story? They are not honest reporters but rather one big steno pool for Democrats, that’s why.
