I don’t normally make predictions, but I think it’s reasonable to expect that, as a result of the continued steady emergence of the facts, within two or three or four days, a week at most, the entire Martin-Zimmerman affair will have disappeared without a trace from the mainstream media. The white liberals, the blacks (except for the hardcore ones like the New Black Panther Party), and the hoodie-wearing celebrants of all races will simply turn away and forget Trayvon Martin when they realize that their fact-free sacred narrative of murderous white racism and victimized black innocence has collapsed. Of course they won’t admit they were wrong, and they won’t admit to the terrible harm they have done (to George Zimmerman, to the additional whites who will now be assaulted or killed by blacks, and to race relations in general); they will simply turn their attention to the next convenient white racist hate object that comes along. Even “Rich” Lowry, editor of America’s flagship conservative magazine, won’t admit he was wrong. Where is the profit in drawing attention to his own fatuousness?
