Narrative of Racism
So I decided to record a special edition of the Peter Schiff Show Podcast, and it’s very important topic, and I also wanted to include some video. It’s not directly related to the economy or the markets, but really, indirectly, it is, because this nation is being pushed to the left by a lot of false narratives. One of them, being racism, particularly when it comes to the issues of wealth disparity and trying to blame the difference in wealth between African Americans and the general population, and the reason for this is because of a pervasive and systemic racism, and that the only way that African Americans can succeed is if we elect a bunch of socialists who will enact laws to save them from racism and to re-distribute the wealth.
Media Remains Steadfast as Evidence Contradicts
And part of that narrative really was advanced back in 2012 with the Trayvon Martin incident with George Zimmerman and people who were listening to the Peter Schiff Show back in 2012, I really covered this topic pretty extensively. I was one of the earliest defenders of Zimmerman, and the reason I did that is because, as the evidence was coming out, it was completely contradicting the false narrative that was being pushed by the Martin family, by the media. Yet the media remains steadfast in their opinion, even though they had all this evidence that contradicted it.
New Information Brought to Light
Well, the reason that I’ve resurrected this topic is that now George Zimmerman is in the news again, he has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the Trayvon Martin family, the mom and dad, the lawyers, prosecutors, and the media is again pushing the same false narrative. They are writing all sorts of articles really vilifying Zimmerman all over again: “How dare this guy file this lawsuit! Hasn’t he done enough damage? He murdered a child and now he is suing the parents of the victim – all this terrible coverage.
