L.A. Times’s Scott Martelle Accepts That Mississippi Justice System Racist Against Whites

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:45 am

Scott Martelle, writing in the L.A. Times:

If the state of Mississippi had finished what it started, Michelle Byrom would be dead right now. Instead, based on revelations about confessions kept from a jury and an alleged case of perjury, the state’s Supreme Court on Monday tossed out Byrom’s murder conviction and ordered a new trial — but also ordered that a new judge conduct it.

In his piece, Martelle does not reject the notion that Mississippi’s problems result from racism against whites like Byrom. I don’t agree with that silly argument, of course. But, strange as it may sound, Martelle “tacitly accepts” it. Because as we all know, according to Scott Martelle, “to not reject is tacit acceptance.”

This post is the second in a series on surprising positions tacitly accepted by Scott Martelle.

  3. In a thorough study of every article Martelle has ever written, it is clear he tacitly accepts the notion that Sen Hairy Reed is actually a Sleestak in drag, with a deep seated love for the Kock Brothers

  4. I’m still waiting for him to reject the notion that women are from Venus and men are from Mars. A Crackpot this guy.

  7. Isn’t the next step to have other sites and MSM authoritatively quote the posts here on this blog ?

  8. Perhaps he should be investigated for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. It does not appear that he has rejected the notion that he framed O.J. for the crime.
