When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

John Oliver Blasting The Zimmerman Verdict

What's the old saying? "I'd never want to leave my fate in the hands of 6 people too stupid to get out of jury duty"?

The myriad of problems associated with the Zimmerman case are just too numerous to list in a single blog.

As a white man, I find the actions of some white people utterly disgusting! I find it hard to believe that in circa 2013 - the filthy nasty comments are being sent to African Americans whom have chosen to voice their opinion on this case.

I would tell my race that we are 250 years removed from the civil war, and yet our words today, portray this very unlettered mentality of a time long ago. Take heed white folk, "for it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt"!

I often used to claim that our political discourse was the worst division or obstacle before us, seeing the vile ugliness of my own race over this case, I have to say, that as a country, we are no better today than we where in 1863, and it is this divisiveness that takes the lead as America's worst.

Justice you say? Florida law, no racism what so ever? Both of these people pictured invoked stand your ground, on killed, and one fired warning shots. One walked away Scott free, one got twenty years. Where is this justice you speak of America? See the problem here readers?


Juror B37: What can you say, she is on a first name bases with the murderer, she appears to be very: sympathetic to "George", condescending, and it appears that she had preconceived ideas of guilt well prior to - or before she should have. Also less than 48 hours after the trial, Juror B 37 had a deal sealed to write a book [which has since been rescinded see below link], there is no doubt in this bloggers mind that dollar signs of a book deal where well discussed prior to her being seated as a juror. She also claims that she would trust "George" to be a "wanna-be-cop" again. HUH?:! Seriously? She also stated that race wasn't a player in the trial - is she sure she was speaking on the same Zimmerman trial!?

I could write my doctoral thesis on this case, something to consider I guess - but what does it say about America, that today white people are reconstituting the "N" word to taunt Americans of race for their opinions? Van Jones was pummeled with the word 25 times in a tweet right after the verdict.

Not only does the verdict disgust me, but so does the actions of white "Christians"! From the Ted Nugent's of the world [the man who shit his pants to avoid the Vietnam draft, also see the link below regarding pants shitting] to those bold racists, who utter direct racial epithets from behind both closed doors and computer screens - you humans are the most vile despicable homosapiens to ever troll the earth - you are not Christians, you are not Americans, and lastly, you are not human! Your ignorance resonates with a resounding thud! Lack of education and common decency is not an excuse for your behavior!

Below John Oliver shreds the Zimmerman verdict:

I found a letter from an African American to George Zimmerman, and it goes like this:

Dear George Zimmerman, 
For the rest of your life you are now going to feel what's it like to be a black man in America. 
You will feel people stare at you . Judging you for what you think are unfair reasons. You will lose out on getting jobs for something you feel is outside of your control. You will believe yourself to be an upstanding citizen and wonder why people choose not to see that. 
People will cross the street when they see you coming. They will call you hurtful names. It will drive you so crazy that you'll want to scream at the top of your lungs. But you will have to wake up the next day, put on a firm look and push through the day. 
I bet you never thought that by shooting a black male you'd end up inheriting all of his struggles. 
Enjoy your "freedom".

A black male who could've been Tryavon Martin

George Zimmerman made a statement during his "we don't need you to do that" killing of an innocent teen: "Those fucking punks always get away with it"! How true he is, especially in this case - yes George, you are indeed, a fucking punk!
