Melanin Pimps Refuse To Identify Burke As Democrat
The “Melanin Pimps,” chief of whom are the mainstream media, the NAACP, and Essex County New Jersey Democrat Council leader Leroy Jones, have been quieter than fat rats in a kennel full of cats pursuant to Marie Strumolo Burke.
Burke was captured on tape, as I wrote on May 13. (Melanin Pimps Silent On Marie Strumolo Burke) There’s been no Obama, no Sharpton, and no Jackson. Silence is the word. When I spoke to Thomas Puryear, president of the NAACP chapter that includes Essex County, on May 6, he assured me the NAACP had a plan to address Burke’s vile vitriol, but he could not share with me at that moment. Apparently his big plan was to be as quiet as possible because nothing has been forthcoming from them.
Add to that, Burke wasn’t even afforded the luxury of being identified as a discourteous, overweight, foul-mouthed Democrat bigot who doesn’t want her town turning into a “F*****g niggertown.”
As reported by the DailySurge.com: Burke’s repugnant remark was widely reported in local media, and has recently seen play in some national outlets. But nearly all of the stories failed to identify Burke’s affiliation with the Democratic Party.
The New Jersey Star-Ledger didn’t mention it once. Neither did this April 29 story on NorthJersey.com, or this one from April 11. New Jersey News 12 omitted it in their write-up. In fact, The Daily Caller News Foundation couldn’t find a single local story identifying Burke as a Democrat.
Regional and national news outlets didn’t fare much better. The New York Daily News almost identified her as a Democrat — but only in the story’s final sentence, and only as cover for the Democratic National Committee. “Earlier this week, Belleville council members voted to request a censure from the Democratic National Committee of Strumolo Burke due to the purported comments,” they wrote.
Popular African-American blog The Root expressed the requisite outrage, but still failed to mention Burke’s political ID. Even an online story on Fox News swept Burke’s Democratic credentials under the rug.
In fact, the only outlets to touch on Burke’s party affiliation were expressly conservative blogs and media organizations like The Blaze and The Washington Times. And most of those stories were only published on Wednesday [May 30, 2014].(See: Media Refuses To Identify Party Affiliation Of New Jersey Democrat Caught In Racist Rant; 5/1/14)
