Hypocrisy in mainstream media and the civil rights establishment

One story is particularly alarming. Attending a Tea Party-led assembly in St. Louis last August, Kenneth Gladney was protesting a healthcare forum hosted by Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.), handing out Don’t Tread on Me flags and voicing his opposition. Then out of the blue, Gladney was attacked and horrifically beaten by members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). These thugs didn’t like what Gladney had to say nor why he was protesting a provision their bosses deemed was worthy, so they hunted him down and taught him a lesson he won’t soon forget.

Was Gladney a white, redneck racist, as some commentators such as MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann have characterized all Tea Party members? Hardly. Gladney is African-American. And the SEIU thugs reminded him of his color as they beat him to a pulp, using the N-word repeatedly.
 
Where is the mainstream media, NAACP, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Do they and the liberal establishment turn a blind eye to this vulgar racism when a black conservative decides to wander off the Democratic plantation without permission? What is this nation becoming?
