"A member of a pro-Travyon Martin group was unmasked Wednesday as he tried to get on the Florida jury in George Zimmerman’s trial for shooting the unarmed teen.
A white male potential juror identified on his Facebook page as Jerry Counelis gave long, rambling answers about his impartiality when asked basic questions by attorneys.
Counelis, known as panelist E-7, said he was an unemployed painter and musician and had no problem being sequestered if chosen to serve on the jury.
Circuit Judge Debra Nelson said she had a question for Juror E-7
She then asked if Counelis posted something to the Coffee Party Progressives Facebook page on March 21.
Nelson circled something on a piece of paper and handed it to him, and told him to look at it and tell the court if he posted it.
Counelis said 'yes,' and was dismissed from the room. It’s not clear if he’s been taken off the list of potential jurors.
There were several other incendiary remarks about Zimmerman and police in Sanford, Fla., where Martin was shot.
According to its Facebook page, the Coffee Party Progressives is a group “dedicated to seeking justice for Trayvon Martin.”
On March 21, Counelis wrote on its page that the justice system “needs an enema.”
"In Sanford ... & I CAN tell you THIS. 'Justice' IS Coming!" he wrote, adding that "with the noise WE made ... it couldn't be covered up."...............""You'll get a fair trial followed by a first class hanging."

Jeff Hitchcock (co-founder of the Center for the Study of White American Culture) — “There is plenty to blame whiteness for. There is no crime that whiteness has not committed against people of color. There is no crime that we have not committed even against ourselves … We must blame whiteness for the continuing patterns today that deny the rights of those outside of whiteness and which damage and pervert the humanity of those of us within it.” [Chris Weinkopf, “Whiteness Studies,” Frontpagemag.com, June 25, 2003.] (added 6/29/03)

Donna Lamb (member of ‘Caucasians United for Reparations and Emancipation’) — “Knowing what I know about what my people did, I wouldn’t be able to respect myself if I weren’t doing everything I can to have … white people face up to this crime we committed and to right this great wrong.” [Manny Fernandez, Thousands To Rally for Reparations Apology Also Sought For Slave Descendants, Washington Post, August 16, 2002] (added 4/10/03)

Robin Morgan (white author) — “My white skin disgusts me. My passport disgusts me. They are the marks of an insufferable privilege bought at the price of others’ agony. If I could peel myself inside out I would be glad. If I could become part of the oppressed I would be free.” [Robert Boatman, “Trent Lott’s of the Left,” Frontpagemag.com (online), January 3, 2003.] (added 2/05/03)

Maggie Gallagher (white columnist) — “I hate the idea of being white. I never think of myself as belonging to the ‘white race.’ Those who do, in my experience, are invariably second-raters, seeking solace for their own failures.

Susan Sontag (white intellectual) “The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean Algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Marx, and Ballanchine ballets don’t redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history.' "
I don't allow attacks such as these to go unchallenged. Whites are by no means alone in regards to things that were either clearly wrong or less than right. Societies created by whites also happen to be some of the most free, tolerant, prosperous, and safe (without tyrannical control) places on earth. They also tend to be the most fertile places for artistic, scientific, literary, recreational, and political pursuits.
The Left needs to deconstruct the West. This must be kept in mind when one reads or hears such vicious drivel.
