The Left never ever lets go of a narrative

Truth? The left has no use for truth, they have propaganda

In short this “film” perpetuates a narrative, not facts. Martin attacked Zimmerman and according to eyewitnesses, and physical evidence was savagely beating Zimmerman when he was shot. He was not a victim, but, again, the left cares not one bit about truth

Fake News? The Left revels in it!

Bob Owens catches Teen Vogue in a massive misrepresentation about the death of Trayvon Martin

People are entitled to share their own opinions, but it’s grossly irresponsible and unethical for a “professional” publication (especially a magazine aimed at children) to blatantly lie to their readers. Sadly, that is precisely what Teen Vogue has done as they have attempted to turn Trayvon Martin into a martyr.

Almost five years ago, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a “neighborhood watch” member as he walked home from a convenience store where he had purchased a juice drink and a package of Skittles. George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon, believed him to be “possibly dangerous” because of his race and the fact that he was wearing a hoodie.

Trayvon’s murder – and Zimmerman’s eventual acquittal – incited nation-wide outrage and was part of launching the powerful Black Lives Matter movement. To this day, Trayvon’s name serves as a reminder of the progress that is necessary in order to improve the very real problem of police brutality and racism.

Today (February 5) would have been Trayvon’s 22nd birthday. All across social media, people are pausing to pay homage to Trayvon’s memory, while reminding the world that his life was taken prematurely and unfairly.

The article’s author, De Elizabeth, doesn’t just play fast and loose with her opinion, but objectively lies about the circumstances surrounding Martin’s February 26, 2012 death.

I highlighted the most gratuitous lies, such as Zimmern targeted Martin because of his race, and that Martin was murdered. And that his death somehow had something to do with  police brutality. Martin attacked Zimmerman, and Zimmerman, fearing for his life defended himself. If Martin’s life was taken “unfairly” it was no one’s fault but Martin’s

I am thinking that, other than the names, Elizabeth got everything wrong in her screed. And, given that anyone can find the truth about the shooting, it was self-defense, to the evidence, to the trial, I must conclude that Elizabeth lied deliberately. But, again what does the left think of truth? Absolutely nothing. Owens has more at the link

Can you believe we once thought Colin Powell was a Conservtive?

He has turned out to be nothing more than a Democrat, and he seems to have a touch of Racial Obsession Syndrome going too. Right Scoop has video, that will not embed here of Powell calling the Zimmerman verdict “questionable”. Good grief!

 

My sympathy for Trayvon Martin’s parents is wearing very thin

Is it just me, or are these two and their campaign of lies well past tiresome? Sorry, but losing their son does not give them Carte Blanche to spread bald-faced lies in an effort to hamper American’s right to self-defense. Bob Owens sounds pretty fed up with their act too He posts their latest batch of lies from Change.Org

A reader forwarded along this email he got from Change.Org:

Last year, our son Trayvon Martin was stalked, chased down and killed by George Zimmerman, and Zimmerman received no punishment whatsoever. That’s in large part because Florida is one of at least 21 states with some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ law which enables people like George Zimmerman to claim self-defense.

‘Stand Your Ground’ was never meant to give aggressors the opportunity to get away with murder, but that is what happened when our son Trayvon was killed. After Trayvon’s death, law enforcement used the law as an excuse to refuse to arrest George Zimmerman. Even worse, the jury in the case was instructed to think of what Zimmerman did as self-defense, even though Zimmerman ignored instructions from the police and instigated conflict with our son, who was just trying to get home to his father.

We are shocked and heartbroken by the jury’s decision to allow our son’s killer to go free. Despite our despair, we must honour Trayvon’s legacy by doing all that we can to protect other young people from being targeted, pursued, and senselessly murdered.

We started a petition on Change.org calling on 21 governors whose states have some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to review those laws and amend them so that people who instigate conflicts — people like George Zimmerman — won’t be able to use these laws to get away with murder.

We are not the only ones calling for ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to be reviewed. President Obama spoke out on the need for review, and prominent Republicans like Senator John McCain havejoined him. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue, it’s not ‘black’ or ‘white’ issue, it’s a wrong and right issue.

This is a matter of making sure that no other family will ever have to go through what we have been through. No parents should ever have to know what it feels like to watch your child’s killer walk free.

Our hearts broke on the night of February 26, 2012 when George Zimmerman killed our son — and we were stunned and devastated when the police refused to arrest Zimmerman. We petitioned for Zimmerman’s arrest on Change.org, and after more than 2 million people joined our call, Zimmerman was charged with our son’s murder. We felt so much closer to justice for Trayvon, and so grateful for the support of those who signed our petition.

But on July 13, 2013, our hearts broke again when the jury set Zimmerman free. Our hearts broke because it is so hard to accept that we can’t protect Trayvon anymore. But we can fight to make sure that this never happens again.

Please sign our petition calling for a thorough review of all ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to prevent killers like George Zimmerman from going free.

We want to say thank you to all of you who have stood up for our son. Because of all your efforts, Trayvon’s life is celebrated all over the world. Please continue to stand with us as we fight to ensure that his legacy is to leave behind a safer and more peaceful world for all our sons and daughters.

Thank you,
Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton

Wow, how many lies can they pack into a few paragraphs? And how much emotional appeal, sans any facts of course, because, frankly the facts pointed to their son being the aggressor, and not Zimmerman. But, I know, I, and everyone else is supposed to stay silent, and not dare criticize them because they are grieving parents, who have absolute moral authority right?Not no, but HELL NO! What they are doing is not only wrong, but it is evil. They are actively campaigning to take away the right of self-defense. And, if successful, their will be MORE grieving parents, not fewer.

Bob Owens offers similar thoughts. Is it all about $$$$$?

40 prosecution and 19 defense witnesses painted an entirely different story, of course, which supported George Zimmerman’s story as he told it.

George Zimmerman stalked no-one. If he did, crazed prosecutor Angela Corey would have charged him.

Nor did Zimmerman chase anyone: their multiple-drug-abusing, gun-dealing, street-fighting thug of a son, who enjoyed hitting people, lurked in the dark for four minutes watching George Zimmerman before he went after Zimmerman, a fact undisputed in the case.

Rachel Jeantel confirmed Zimmerman’s story that Trayvon emerged from the darkness behind Zimmerman as the shorter, softer neighborhood watchman was on the way back to his truck, and as Jeantel herself said when speaking with Piers Morgan after the trial, she believes Trayvon not only initiated the confrontation by coming up to Zimmerman from behind, he threw the first punch… and every one after that, despite cries for help from Zimmerman and John Good’s shouting at Trayvon to stop his relentless attack.

The reality that Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton know in their hearts is that their son was an attempted murderer, who was only stopped from achieving his goal because the shorter, weaker man had a gun.

“Stand Your Ground” was never brought up in the courtroom during the trial, and Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton know why: it wasn’t relevant to the case. It’s impossible to claim you were “standing your ground” when you were ambushed, sucker punched, and mounted, with no way to escape.

Every major claim in their email is a lie.

Apparently Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton have discovered that there is some money to be made from the gun control movement. After all, they’ve already “earned” more than $1 million from their victimology tour.

What else would they say for a few dollars more?

 

Ignorant Buffoon W. Kamau Bell Suffers from Racial Obsession Syndrome

It is sad to see someone who is so hooked on feeling like a victim isn’t it? Bell is a perfect example of what the Left has done to too many Blacks in America.

Comedian W. Kamau Bell told a pack of television reporters what the role of white people should be in cases like the George Zimmerman trial.

The liberal host of FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, who once announced that the Tea Party was at least 10 percent racist, said the white press’s reaction to the Zimmerman acquittal should have been to silently acknowledge the racism at play.

After all, Bell argues, white people can’t speak up with certainty on issues of race.

The worst thing to say to a person of color is, ‘I don’t think that’s racist.’ I don’t think that’s your area. You can have an opinion but I don’t think you are the final word. That’s what’s missing, white people. You’ve got a lot of jobs” but should not have the ‘I know what’s racist’ job. I know what’s imperialism – that’s your job.”

See, there you are. A man totally consumed by skin color, spewing racist stereotypes while claiming to be  a victim of, you guessed it, racism. That is what the left has done to Black America, and sadly many of them are absolutely addicted to identity politics and lumping everyone together according to skin color.

 

*VIDEO* Pastor Manning Offers More Insight Into The Character Of Trayvon Martin, And That Of George Zimmerman


.
Edward L. Daley reflects…

Modern, western cultures which dismiss the importance of family, education and the Judeo-Christian ethic in people’s lives are destined to devolve into chaos, hopelessness and extinction. Trayvon Martin – like so many of his peers – was not properly taught to appreciate these truths, and that ignorance was as detrimental to his ability to fulfill his dreams as anything else. Even if he had survived being shot, how enviable would his life have been thereafter? Would you have traded your future for his?

George Zimmerman Rescues Family Of Four From Truck Crash (Video)

Monster George Zimmerman Rescues Family Of Four From Truck Crash… Update: Robert Zimmerman Weighs In – Gateway Pundit

.

Monster George Zimmerman rescued a Florida man from a truck crash this week.

ABC reported:

George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue someone who was trapped in an overturned truck, police said today.

Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe told ABC News that Zimmerman “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over” at the intersection of a Florida highway last week.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route 417, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where he shot Martin.

It’s the first known sighting of Zimmerman since he left the courtroom following his acquittal last week on murder charges for the death of Martin. Zimmerman, 29, shot and killed Martin, 17, in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, 2012. The jury determined that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense.

UPDATE: Zimmerman rescued a family of four.

Rasmussen Poll: 24% of Americans suffer from Racial Obsession Syndrome

The poll does not say that SPECIFICALLY, but….

Most Americans don’t believe George Zimmerman was motivated by racism and do not believe he should be charged with a hate crime for shooting black teenager Trayvon Martin. But as with nearly every question regarding this case, there is wide racial disagreement.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 24% of all American Adults believe Zimmerman’s actions that led to Martin’s death were motivated primarily by racism. Fifty-four percent (54%) think the Hispanic Neighborhood Watch volunteer was chiefly motivated instead by a concern about burglaries in the neighborhood.  Twenty-two percent (22%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording,click here.)

The reason I say that these people suffer from R.O.S. is that there is no evidence race played into Zimmerman’s actions. Either they see race in everything, or they are just ignorant as to the evidence. Sadly, too many people are believing the same talking points the Left trotted out when this story first broke last year.

 

 

George Zimmerman Haters Gain New Ally… Iran

Iran Blasts Zimmerman’s Acquittal In U.S. – FARS

Iran deplored the recent court verdict acquitting U.S. security guard George Zimmerman who killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin as a blatant example of racial discrimination.

.

Last week, a court in the U.S. found Zimmerman not guilty over Martin’s death. Several thousand people marched from Union Square to Times Square in New York after Zimmerman’s exoneration.

“The acquittal of the murderer of the teenage African American once again clearly demonstrated the unwritten, but systematic racial discrimination against racial, religious and ethnic minorities in the US society,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi said.

He noted that the court ruling has also seriously put under question the fairness of the judicial process in the United States.

“Several months on since a probe was launched (into the murder), the public opinion in the U.S. and across the world expect transparency, an accurate and fair judicial investigation into the case, with due regard to human rights principles for American citizens and a ban on discrimination against minorities in the country,” Araqchi added.

The public views the court ruling as a follow-up to similar incidents such as the suspicious murder of the grandson of former African American Muslim leader Malcolm X, which the U.S. judicial system failed to probe, Araqchi stated.

He said Tehran advises the U.S. government and its judiciary to “seriously abide by” the country’s international and human rights obligations, “particularly with respect to minorities,” and to take practical steps to put an end to its discriminatory conduct.

Zimmerman claimed the fatal shooting, which took place on February 26, 2012, in a small Florida town, was in self-defense.

The controversial ruling sparked angry protest rallies across the U.S., during which protesters burned American flags and held signs reading, “We are all Trayvon Martin,” among other slogans.

So this is what post-racial means?

Obama was going to be our first “post-racial” president. Being a person who could not give a flip less about race, I wondered what that meant exactly. I knew a lot of Americans voted for Obama in 2008 BECAUSE of his skin color, and I thought that was strange, I mean if we were now a post-racial nation, why would anyone even consider  Obama’s skin color? Well since he assumed the office, President Obama has given us a very clear image of what  exactly post-racial means. And, I gotta say, it looks pretty damned racial to me.

The Left has ramped up its race baiting to a fever pitch. The vitriol launched against Conservatives is completely out of control. Our Attorney General Eric Holder, seem to be pretty obsessed with race frankly, and just ask George Zimmerman how post racial he feels these days.

The United States Department of Justice just doesn’t want to make life any easier for George Zimmerman apparently.

The DoJ has put a hold on all evidence related to the case, which includes Zimmerman’s Kel Tec PF9 handgun, which, under Florida law, should be returned to him.

According to the Daily Mail,

WESH-TV in Orlando reported Thursday afternoon that police had confirmed the evidence ‘hold,’ meaning that everything related to the trial, from Zimmerman’s gun to the Skittles and iced tea Martin was carrying when the pair’s altercation began, will remain in the hands of law enforcement.

The DOJ did not immediately respond to questions about whether it will take custody of the evidence, or when that might occur.

So, to be clear, in post-racial America, a man can defend himself, the local authorities can find no reason to charge him with any crime but a race pimp on the radio, Al Sharpton, can exploit the story and try to make it about race, and that leads to asinine second-degree murder charges? In the trial of the man who the media and Left tried to paint as a crazy White guy, even though he is Hispanic, the prosecution can consistently accuse that man of hunting down a Black kid because he is a racist profiler. And when this man is acquitted, the Left explodes in outrage, continuing their baseless charges of racism, and racial profiling. And what does this post-racial president do? Does he step up and say calm down, George Zimmerman has been found not guilty? Does he scold those engaging in racially charged vitriol? Does he urge Americans to accept the verdict? Does he move to bring people together? NO, he allows his Attorney General to persecute a man who a jury found not guilty. And a man who the FBI saw no grounds to pursue civil rights charges against?

So THAT is what post-racial means? The federal government persecuting a man and fanning rather than putting out the flames of racial division? 

 

Celebrating idiocy, and Gay bashing, that is the media’s new game

Anything to further the destroy George Zimmerman campaign right CNN?

You have to wonder about that, when you see everyone on CNN nodding in agreement while Rachel Jeantel recalls how she warned Trayvon Martin that the “creepy-ass cracker” George Zimmerman might be a gay pedophile predator.

Holy stereotypes, Batman! On what planet do liberals so much as acknowledge the possibility of the existence of gay pedophilia? But let this lecture be delivered by a 19-year-old black high-school dropout — “Run, Trayvon! Dat creepy-ass cracker gonna rape you!” — and all the “liberals” react as if this were the apex of wisdom.

Try to imagine if something like this had been said on CNN by a Republican politician or some redneck Baptist preacher who talked like Larry the Cable Guy. Outrage! Homophobia!

But when Rachel Jeantel says it, Piers Morgan doesn’t bat an eye, his liberal audience nods in agreement, and anyone who points out that Rachel Jeantel is an idiot . . . RAAAAACIST!

So now the media is fawning over idiocy? And Gay bashing? Clearly Jeantal was telling Trayvon that a man following him might be Gay. And, Martin attacked Zimmerman. Did he do that because he thought Zimmerman was Gay? Think that question would not have been asked by this same media if Martin was White? Think again! We cannot, must not question the sagacity of Jeantel, Rachel Jeantel is wise the Left says. So what if she cannot read cursive writing, and can barely carry on a conversation? She has this wisdom because she can educate an imbecile like Piers Morgan on the difference between “Cracker”, and “Cracka”. So CNN and the rest of the media celebrate her. Of course the media WANTS people to look at Rachel Jeantel and see a bright girl. Face it, CNN, and other media outlets have been busy lying about the Zimmerman case ever since the verdict was announced. OK, actually they have been lying about it since the story broke last year, which explains why so many of those outraged by the verdict. They have no grasp as to what the story actually was, or is. They are acting on pure emotion, and the media is helping them in every way they can. As RS McCain noted a The American Spectator

Why, for example, are educated people willing to accept without question the idea that what happened to Trayvon Martin can only be explained as a consequence of racism? Is it not possible that Trayvon’s own ignorance contributed to his death? Even if we stipulate that George Zimmerman was wrong to pursue Trayvon — “We don’t need you to do that,” as the 911 dispatcher said — was this teenager completely without fault in that fatal encounter?

Three days after a jury declared Zimmerman not guilty of murder, CNN continued its wall-to-wall coverage of the case Tuesday, misinforming its audience about basic facts. Over and over, CNN’s hosts and commentators brought up Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, despite the fact that this law enacted in 2005 had nothing to do with the Zimmerman trial. But issues that may have a lot to do with the trial, the networks are willing to ignore. The one thing that CNN and the rest of the media establishment have refused to discuss is the path that brought a teenager to his fatal encounter with the neighborhood watch captain of that townhouse community in Sanford, Florida.
Trayvon Martin was not from Sanford, Florida. This is perhaps the most important fact of the entire story, in part because it may explain why the teenager was so disturbed at being followed by George Zimmerman. Trayvon was from Miami Gardens, the largest majority-black city in Florida, where the population is 76 percent black and 22 percent Hispanic and “creepy-ass crackers” are quite rare. Crime is commonplace in Miami Gardens — the crime rate is about 70 percent higher than the national average — and Trayvon Martin was one of the criminals. . . .

Well said. And in closing allow me to answer McCain’s question about why people are so ready to accept the idea that this is about racism. That is what the media has been drilling into people’s heads for years and years now. that is what is increasingly taught in our schools, that EVERYTHING is racial in racist America.

Just a thought

We have all heard, over and over that Zimmerman profiled, stalked, hunted, gunned down, and killed Trayvon Martin in a cold-blooded attack. We know there really is no evidence of any of these charges, but facts do not slow down the race baiters and grievance mongers of the Left. Just consider the words of Tavis Smiley, courtesy of Bob Belvedere

 

…we never seem to accept the fact that race in this country is real, that color will get you killed.

This is, for many Americans, another piece of evidence of the incontrovertible contempt that this nation often shows and displays for black men.  …  George Zimmerman knew nothing of Trayvon Martin’s character; all he saw was his color.

Fifty years after the March on Washington, while the Voting Rights Act is being gutted, speaking of the Justice Department, what they’ll do about that perhaps, something is wrong when adults can racially profile children. Trayvon Martin was a child racially profiled and gunned down.

Now those of you familiar with Smiley realize that he stays “relevant” by pushing this line of crap. But, as I read his words a thought struck me. If you listened to the now infamous George Zimmerman call to the Sanford Police non-emergency number, you notice that it was only after the dispatcher ASKED about the race of the subject that Zimmerman said “I think he is Black” Later on in the call, as Zimmerman got a closer look, he added “He is a Black male”.

Now, think about this. If Zimmerman was not even sure as to the race of the subject he was observing then clearly he was not profiling by race, only be behavior.

Second, the idea that Zimmerman hunted Trayvon down with the intent on killing him has a major flaw as well. If that was his intent, why would he call the police? Why would he ask the police to meet him? If his intent was to stalk and kill, he would have followed Martin, provoked a confrontation, shot Martin THEN called 911. Zimmerman was carrying a gun, legally, he was a respected home owner, and he had the Stand Your Ground Law didn’t he? But, he did not do any of that. He instead called police. When Martin circled his truck, Zimmerman did not get out and confront him. He had the police dispatcher on the line, he could have confronted Martin right then, and shot Martin while the dispatcher recorded it all, talk about a pretty good alibi. But Zimmerman did not do that either. Instead, he stayed in his truck, UNTIL the dispatcher asked him if he could see where Martin had gone. He was never told DO NOT FOLLOW. The dispatcher asked IF Zimmerman was following Martin, and when Zimmerman said yes, the dispatcher said “we do not need you to do that” to which Zimmerman replied OK, and asked again that the police meet him at his truck. 

All this time, Martin could have run home, but he had not. We may never know if he was circling around, looking to ambush Zimmerman but evidence would suggest that to me. We all know now what happened after that, we have eye-witness testimony that confirms Zimmerman’s account of being beaten by Martin. We have the pictures of the injuries to Zimmerman’s head and face. Injuries consistent with Zimmerman’s account. It was only then that Zimmerman, the “trigger happy” “wannabe cop” vigilante drew his weapon and fired. Sorry but nothing I have found about this case indicated that Zimmerman even wanted to draw his gun or harm anyone until he felt his life depended on it. Of course that does not fit the narrative the Left wants us to believe, but their narrative, frankly, sounds like a yarn being spun to help them and their agenda.

 

Signs you are a RAAAAACIST

If you did not immediately believe that George Zimmerman is a White Hispanic, White Hispanic who profiled, hunted down, and shot Saint Trayvon down in cold blood, you are a RAAAAACIST!

If you believe George Zimmerman’s account that he acted in self-defense you are a RAAAAACIST!

I you wanted to wait until all the evidence came out in Zimmerman’s trial-You are a RAAAAACIST!

If you think there was not enough evidence to convict Zimmerman you are a RAAAACIST

If you were concerned about riots after the Zimmerman trial, you are a RAAAAACIST

If you think that Cracker, or Cracka are racial slurs, you are a CREEPY-ASS CRACKER RAAAAACIST!

If you speak out against the riots that are happening after the Zimmerman trial, you are a RAAAAACIST!

If you challenge, with facts, any of the race baiters exploiting Trayvon Martin’s death, you are a RAAAAACIST!

If you question why the self-appointed Black leaders NEVER EVER do a damn thing to stem the rampant rate of Black on Black murders  that kill hundreds of Trayvons every year you are a RAAAAACIST!

If you think you ought to have a right to defend yourself, stand your ground, carry a gun, own a gun, chew a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun, live in a state shaped like a gun, or say the word gun, you are a RAAAAACIST!

 

Some facts are more equal, and convenient than others

Stacy McCain has a heck of a good piece up at American Spectator. One that was read by Rush. Go check it out, and maybe send it to MSNBS or CNN, Lord knows they might need to see what a journalist does

So, I recognized it as legitimate news, and decided to write it where it would have the best chance of attracting high-profile attention, and then I wrote it as clearly as I could: “Just the facts, ma’am.”

Part of the reason it was difficult to get that story across was that it wasn’t easy to explain. It’s a complex story and boiling it down to less than 700 words took me several hours, because I had to sort through a lot of stuff and double-check basic background facts. And here is the most important fact of the whole story:

TRAYVON MARTIN WAS NOT FROM SANFORD

The liberal media keep leaving that out, don’t they? And why do you think that is? Because if they told you he was from Miami Gardens, more than 240 miles from Sanford, then the media would have to explain why Trayvon was in Sanford the night of Feb. 26, 2012.

Sometimes, if you pull one thread of a story, the whole narrative unravels and this question — “Why was Trayvon in Sanford?” — is one that the liberal media don’t want to talk about.

This is how you know it’s probably the most important question of all.

Strange as it may seem (or not), the liberal media broke this story before George Zimmerman was ever arrested but never followed up. Frances Robles of the Miami Herald reported it on March 26, 2012: “Multiple suspensions paint complicated portrait of Trayvon Martin.”

And then . . . nothing. Even while Robles’ story triggered an internal investigation within the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department (MDSPD) that helped eventually to bring about the resignation of MDSPD Chief Charles Hurley, nobody else in the mainstream media thought Trayvon Martin’s school record relevant to the story.

Because they are a disgusting pack of cowardly liars, that’s why. Some of them were down for the left-wing agenda, and some just let themselves be mau-maued by the thug mob that was demanding George Zimmerman’s prosecution. In fact, the Miami Herald actually quoted leaders of the thug mob in its March 26, 2012, article:

“It’s completely irrelevant to what happened Feb. 26,” said attorney Benjamin Crump. “They never heard this, and don’t believe it’s true. If it were true, why wouldn’t they call the parents? Why wasn’t he arrested?”
Trayvon, who was a junior at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School, had never been arrested, police and the family have said.
“We think everybody is trying to demonize him,” Crump said. . . .
Trayvon’s parents viewed the new reports as an orchestrated campaign to demonize their son as a “junkie and thief,” a routine occurrence in such cases, the Rev. Al Sharpton said at an afternoon press conference. Zimmerman, Sharpton said, had no way of knowing about Trayvon’s school record — “because he didn’t interview him before he shot him.”
“The only thing that’s relevant is what Zimmerman knew,” Sharpton said. “Let’s not play this double standard of trying to damage who is dead and sanitize who is the cause of the death.”
Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, said her son never had any problems with gangs or the police. In fact, she said, when she transferred him out of Carol City High School to be closer to home, the school wanted him to stay at Carol City because they liked him and he was a good student.
“They killed my son, and now they are trying to kill his reputation,” Fulton said.

Let’s leave aside for now this accusation that the only reason anyone would care about Trayvon Martin’s school disciplinary records was because they wanted to “demonize” the dead teenager and “kill his reputation.” Instead, let me call your attention to this: Sybrina Fulton says “she transferred him out of Carol City High School to be closer to home,” but Sybrina Fulton lived near Ben Franklin Park, and it doesn’t take a genius to check Google Maps: Carol City High School is at 3301 Miami Gardens Dr, Miami Gardens, FL — 7.4 miles from Ben Franklin Park — while Krop High School  is at 1410 County Line Rd, Ives Estates, FL, 8.1 miles from Ben Franklin Park.

Whatever reason Trayvon transferred from Carol City High to Krop High, being “closer to home” doesn’t really seem to explain it. Maybe there’s some other explanation that I don’t understand, but we know that Trayvon was suspended three times from Krop High. It might be interesting to know more about Trayvon’s years at Carol City High, besides his mother’s claim that “the school wanted him to stay at Carol City because they liked him and he was a good student.”

I’m just sayin’ . . .

Lots more at the link, go, read, learn

The NAACP, like the rest of the Left, will not stop until liberty and rule of law is destroyed

One word for the NAACP, DESPICABLE. No sooner had George Zimmerman been found not guilty, than the race pimps started beating their drums of discontent. Chris has more

I always thought “not guilty” meant your troubles were over.

But the race-baiters have a new trick up their sleeves, civil rights charges.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has called on the Obama administration to pursue civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.

The NAACP also tweeted out a petition urging the Justice Department to “open a civil rights case against George Zimmerman.”

“Attorney General Eric Holder,” the petition reads, “The Department of Justice has closely monitored the State of Florida’s prosecution of the case against George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin murder since it began. Today, with the acquittal of George Zimmerman, it is time for the Department of Justice to act.”

“The most fundamental of civil rights — the right to life — was violated the night George Zimmerman stalked and then took the life of Trayvon Martin,” the NAACP wrote. “We ask that the Department of Justice file civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman for this egregious violation.”

Nonwithstanding that the jury found Zimmerman innocent the NAACP insists on twisting the facts to suit their prefered outcome. There was a time when they were on the side of the angels, fighting injusticeand corrupt prosecutions. Now they aid and abet the very travesties they once fought against.

And dollars to donuts Eric Holder will do their bidding.

How can he not, when he’s already inserted himself into the frenzy, using the DOJ to gin up pre-trial racist animosity against George Zimmerman.

Judicial Watch revealed documents today that proved what Breitbart News reported in April, 2012: that Eric Holder’s Department of Justice took an active role in racially charged rallies in Sanford, Florida and that the Community Relations Service helped force the temporary resignation of Sheriff Bill Lee. That resignation made it appear that Sanford authorities were suspect and possibly complicit in covering up something. . . .

That is where our “civil rights leaders” have gotten us as a nation. A nation where a man, accused of a “race” crime, may never have peace until the PC vigilantes destroy him and everything he has.

The Zimmerman verdict fallout, so far

So much to cover, The Other McCain notes that while the media went insane Oakland had some riots. Well of course they did, Oakland has riots over shoe sales for goodness sake. heck if someone reads this blog they might start riots in Oakland

Frankly, after all the media hype about the potential of nationwide rioting if George Zimmerman wasn’t convicted — and all the protesters chanting “No Justice! No Peace!” — I was surprised the Baltimore Bolsheviksdidn’t get their dream of a Marxist revolution. But that hasn’t happened yet and the only violence Saturday night was in Oakland:

Protesters angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman held largely peaceful demonstrations in three California cities, but broke windows and started small street fires Oakland, police said. . . .
The Oakland police dispatch office said about 100 people protested, with some in the crowd breaking windows on businesses and starting small fires in the streets. . . .
Local media reports said some Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car . . .
The Oakland Tribune said some windows on the newspaper’s downtown offices were broken, and footage from a television helicopter show people attempting to start fires in the street and spray painting anti-police graffiti.
Protesters also reportedly burned an American and a California state flag and spray painted Alameda County’s Davidson courthouse.

Question: What kind of person believes that “anti-police graffiti” in Oakland is justified by the result of a murder trial in Florida?

Answer: A typical Democrat voter.

Ignorance proliferates, weak-minded people embrace irrational folly and this explains why Harry Reid is Senate Majority Leader.

Ah yes, Senator Weasel Dick is trying to milk all the publicity he can over this. What does it say of a Senate Majority Leader when he cannot wait to keep punishing a man just found not guilty? Is that really the job of a crook, ah Senator from Nevada?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Sunday urged the Justice Department to review federal charges against George Zimmerman who was acquitted in Sanford, Fla., of murder and manslaughter in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin.

 “I think the Justice Department is going to take a look at this. This isn’t over with and I think that’s good. That’s our system, it’s gotten better, not worse,” Reid said on NBC’s “Meet the Press”.

Obama’s pet, Eric Holder, of course is all too willing to keep looking to lynch Zimmerman. Maybe they cannot put him in jail, but they can ruin his life, and keep their divide America campaign going at the same time

The media, not MSNBS, they are not part of the media, they are propagandists that are nothing like a media outlet, but the actual media has lost all sense of reporting the facts as Patterico points out

A reporter named Ben Montgomery cluelessly reports in the Orlando Sentinel:

George Zimmerman shot a 17-year-old through the heart on a rainy night in February 2012. Now, finally, nearly 17 months later, a jury will try to decide whether the dead boy deserved it.

Zimmerman contends he did.

No. A thousand times: no.

It would be really great if Big Media could get this point right, because it’s as important as it is simple.

This trial is not about whether Trayvon Martin “deserved” to die.

It is about whether the prosecution can prove to a unanimous jury beyond a reasonable doubt based on the evidence submitted in court that George Zimmerman did not act in reasonable self-defense.

Period, end of story.

Of course the media has been spinning this into some kind of anti-gun, race-based story since day one, so the bias should surprise nobody. They are largely to blame for the abject ignorance of this case. Many people simply believe things that simply are not true, others are totally invested in “justice for Trayvon” without being the least bit intellectually invested in the facts of the case. A lot of that is on the media, who did their damnedest to paint Martin as an innocent child, and Zimmerman as a predator. But, a lot is on the individuals who apparently prefer ignorance and rage to understanding and contemplation.

Donald Douglas has more on the thugs, and yes, every single protester/rioter out there is a thug, and how they blocked I-10 in LA. This is what the Left has wrought in America. Minorities so deeply indoctrinated in the politics of division, hatred, and victimhood that they have lost all ability to think like anything but victims. Understand that many Blacks immediately jumped on the Justice for Trayvon bandwagon the moment they heard the story. Facts? Who needs them? Trayvon was Black, he was shot by a White man, never mind that Zimmerman is Hispanic, never mind that it was Trayvon Martin was the one throwing around racial slurs the night he was shot. Never mind that no one offered any testimony that Zimmerman was profiling Martin, or that he said anything racist. Forget all of that. Facts are inconvenient. Emotion though? THAT is the ticket! Race baiting? THAT is the way to go! 

Verdict: George Zimmerman Found Not Guilty (Video)

Jury Finds George Zimmerman Not Guilty – WorldNetDaily

George Zimmerman, the man accused of murdering Trayvon Martin, was found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter on Saturday.

.

The verdict is the culmination of a case that captured the nation’s attention and will undoubtedly be imprinted in America’s history. The not guilty verdict means the jury of six women found that Zimmerman justifiably used deadly force and reasonably believed that such force was “necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm” to himself – Florida’s definition of self-defense.

Zimmerman showed no emotion as the verdict was read. After the verdict was read, he smiled slightly and shook hands with one of his lawyers.

If you call a protest a riot, or a riot a protest……

What would you get? A Riotest? Not sure, but the Other McCain reports that a group of filthy Lenninists are looking to stir up trouble in Baltimore if George Zimmerman is convicted or is not convicted. Ptretty much any excuse to hold an anti-America rally

Jeff Quinton reports a story today with the headline, “Marxists to protest Zimmerman trial verdict in Baltimore.”  This “protest” will involve “activists,” says the Baltimore Sun, which reports that the “The Baltimore People’s Power Assembly” is organizing the riot looting peaceful demonstration, but evidently the Professional Journalist didn’t bother to ask, “Who is The Baltimore People’s Power Assembly”?

Of course they did not ask. Why should a reporter go to any trouble? Or maybe, maybe finding out who this group is was really hard or something?

Readers will be shocked at the profound mystery irresponsible allegationseasily discovered facts that Jeff reports about this outfit:

They have a “Solidarity Center” on North Charles Street just north of West North Avenue where they have some of their events. In fact one of these events this weekend is a birthday party for two activists:

Two very good reasons to party – Andre and Shauna’s birthdays! Andre Powell, who is a long time union and LGBTQ activist, Workers World Party organizer, and New Wave singer along with Shauna, a new Peoples Power Assembly

They are asking for donations at the party:

The Solidarity Center is suffering from the “summer lack of money blues” to pay its rent. As many of you know the Center has housed organizing for the Poor Peoples Campaign and many other campaigns. The Solidarity Center has opened its doors to a variety of different groups who have met and planned activities including Occupy Baltimore, SCLC, UPP, WWP, the Green Party and the families and victims of police violence.

Additionally, the only “Like” tha the Baltimore People’s Assembly makes on their page is the Facebook page of theBaltimore Worker’s World Party. The Baltimore WWP lists it’s physical address as the sam location as the People’s Assembly Solidarity Center.

It would seem that Jeff Quinton has uncovered vicious innuendo baseless rumors incontrovertible proof that the “Solidarity Center” and the “People’s Power Assembly” are basically fronts for the fringe Stalinist splinter group, the Workers World Party.

Just another group of Marxists looking to get some trouble started, and,a s usual the media is too lazy to actually USE their skills to uncover anything that might be important. Or maybe, they just think this is non news, you know, like all those Obama-related scandals?

 

Caught On Tape: Obama DOJ Lackey Urges Sanford Officials To Take Action Against Zimmerman

Caught On Tape: Obama Justice Official Urges Action Against George Zimmerman – Gateway Pundit

Earlier this week we found out the Obama Justice Department helped organize the race-based Trayvon Martin rallies in Sanford, Florida.

.

Now this…

Judicial Watch released audio today of an Obama Department of Justice official urging Sanford city officials to take action against George Zimmerman.

.

………………….Click on image above to listen to audio clip.

The Washington Times reported:

The legal watchdog Judicial Watch released an audio recording Thursday of a Department of Justice staffer urging Sanford, Fla., city officials and the minority advocacy group Dream Defenders to seek justice for Trayvon Martin, because “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.”

“CRS is an arm of the department that we call the Peacemakers,” Thomas Battles, regional director of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, said at a meeting at the Shiloh Church on April 19, 2012. “We work with communities where there is real or perceived racial tensions.”

“…When Trayvon happened, for many of us, it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back,” he continued. “We had grown up in a state and environment where race is a way of life… We’re not from Sanford, but what Sanford represented to us was the very real problems going around this state and this country. We wanted to figure out how could we stand in solidarity, and how could we make this about not just justice for Trayvon, but using this moment and using the opportunity to honor his memory, to honor his spirit by working to bring down the various structures and the various systems that allow something like this to happen.”

Just when we thought this administration could go no lower – we find out they have been actively interfering with a Florida criminal case.

There is absolutely nothing that is off limits to this administration.
