Bill Whittle’s backgrounder

It’s good to know that the mullahs are with the crowds out in the streets seeking justice for Trayvon Martin today. In a little noted sidebar, Adam Kredo reports that Iran’s foreign ministry on Friday criticized the acquittal of George Zimmerman and chastised the United States for widespread “racial discrimination.”

“The acquittal of the murderer of the teenage African American once again clearly demonstrated the unwritten, but systematic racial discrimination against racial, religious, and ethnic minorities in the US society,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi was quoted as saying by Iran’s state run Fars News Agency. “The court ruling has also seriously puttle under question the fairness of the judicial process in the United States,” Fars reported Araqchi as saying.

So while the crowds protesting the Zimmerman verdict take to the streets today, they should know that the mullahs are with them in spirit. Neither the mullahs nor the crowds would approve of Bill Whittle’s backgrounder on the case. Whittle calls it “The Lynching.”
