Tag: Shooting of Trayvon Martin

Trayvon Martin’s mother still playing her Absolute Moral Authority Card

She has no problems, it would seem, with cashing in on her loss, or with spreading Left Wing Propaganda either

Jan. 16 (UPI) – Sybrina Fulton, who’s 17-year-old son Trayvon Martin was shot by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in 2012, visited the University of Utah on Thursday to discuss racial profiling.

Hundreds attended the Martin LutherKing Week event, in which Fulton said that an “upside” to her son’s death was the “opportunity to save someone else’s child.”

“Don’t think for one second racial profiling doesn’t happen. Don’t think for one minute even in your community of Salt Lake City it doesn’t happen,” she said. ”Racism is still alive. Racial profiling is still alive. Injustice is still alive.”

Fulton said that the circumstances of her son’s death — he was wearing a hoodie when Zimmerman shot him — applied all over the country.

“There should not become a time when we are comfortable with burying our children,” Fulton said. “What happened many miles away in Sanford should be uncomfortable for you.”

“Is it the hoodie that really made the difference? Or the color of his skin?” she asked. “And if by one second, just by one mere second, we think that it’s the color of his skin, then something is wrong with America.”

“”At the end of the day, it’s not about Trayvon. It’s about the person that felt he was suspicious,” she added.

Actually it WAS all about your son. He attacked someone, and was in the process of pounding his head on a sidewalk when he was shot. And, no, your son was NOT racially profiled, and NO, Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law did not play a role. But, of course, you do not mind travelling the country, lying through your teeth in the pursuit of trampling the right of self-defense.

The Left prefers emotions to facts

Case in point is this mockery of a manger scene in Claremont, California

The story, from Claremont, California:

Nativity scenes have a few standard elements: a manger, swaddling clothes, happy parents, sheep, maybe the Three Wise Men. They don’t generally include Trayvon Martin.

But there he is, wearing a hoodie, a stream of blood pouring from his chest onto the straw-covered floor of the scene outside Claremont United Methodist Church, the holy family around him.

What does the birth of Jesus Christ have to do with a hoodlum getting himself shot while trying to bash out the brains of a community watch captain against the sidewalk?

For one thing, the backdrop to the Christmas story is the slaughter by King Herod of all infants in Bethlehem, a barbarous attempt to kill the Messiah.

Rather than tidings of comfort and joy, that time of year would have seen “other parents in agony because their children had just been killed,” a plaque explains.

The Martyrdom of Saint Skittles was traumatic for the artist.

“What if Jesus was lying there bleeding to death? I was kind of thinking of that,” Zachary said.

It is easy to just chalk this up to Liberal stupidity, but there is something deeper at work here. When the Trayvon Martin case caught national attention the Left falsely portrayed in the light they wanted to portray it in. Martin was an innocent Black kid just trying to get home. He was racially profiled, hunted down, and killed in cold blood by a crazy, gun-totin’ racist White man. Of course the left got all of those “facts” wrong but yet they continued to peddle their lies as facts. Still today, they stick to their assumptions even though they are demonstrably untrue. And, in 10, or 20 years, Leftists will still be telling their version of the Trayvon Martin case.

Why are they so backasswards? They KNOW they are lying, but they still continue. For the usual suspects like Al Sharpton, Je$$e Jackson, the NAACP, and the MSNBS gang the reason is simple. They perpetuate such fallacies to sell books, get ratings, get donations, or to help Left-Wing candidates win elections etc.. But what of the folks who are not on TV, or radio, or running for office? Why do they continue to not only believe false narratives, but to absolutely CRAVE such narratives to be true? Do they enjoy seeing themselves as perpetual victims? Do they prefer to believe that America is so deeply flawed that racism will never go away? Apparently so. It is tragic that so many Liberals, given the choice between facts, and emotionalistic talking points based in lies, will flock to the false, emotionalistic narratives.

Liberalism is, after all an ideology for pessimists who want to be victims more than they want to be honest.

 

Knockout Game does not fit the race pimp’s narrative, so……….

Allen West nails it, and yes I have said this months ago. These knockout games, and other Black on White violent attacks do not fit the narrative of the Left, but the first time someone with a concealed weapon fights back, the race pimps will leap with both feet! Video at the link, 

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: ON THE RECORD has been reporting on these violent attacks all week but few community leaders and few in the media are willing to talk about it. As we talk about this spreading crime, take a look of a few of the attacks caught on camera so you know what to look out for.

Congressman West, this horrible game, you know, first of all, it’s a group of people — a gang might not be the right word. And after it’s done, everybody laughs at doing it as the victim is lying there suffering. In some instances, even murder. But the question of race. Frankly, so far, it’s been African-Americans, as far as I can see, on whites. I don’t know if it’s completely that way but that’s what we have seen.

WEST: That’s true. That’s exactly what you are seeing. This talks of the state of depravity that is in the black community right now. Again, where are these black leaders that should be talking about this breakdown? Where are the parents? Where are the guardians of the black community to say this is unacceptable behavior?

Now, this is what is going to end up happening. At some point in time, one of the people that’s going to be attacked is going to have a concealed weapons license. They are going to draw down and, unfortunately, someone is going to get shot. Then what is going to happen? You will hear all of the rhetoric coming out from the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons that this unarmed black teenager was shot and killed and assaulted, when right now they should be out there stopping this so we don’t get to this point.

VAN SUSTEREN: They have been silent. And the president, attorney general also role models in the African-American community, but one —

(CROSSTALK)

WEST: This doesn’t fit their political narrative.

VAN SUSTEREN: Obviously, the ones who do it, they’re criminals, arrest them, process them or whatever. Those who laugh may be aiders and abettors, has encouraging them, deal with them, too.

The thing that concerns me, a lot of these communities have 12 and 13- year-olds who look up to older people in the community. There is always the peer pressure. If we don’t stop this now — sort of immaturity of a 13-year-old — is a 13-year-old going to follow suit and do something really stupid, have the person die or end up in prison, and no one is speaking out to try to stop this now.

WEST: Well, you have already seen this happen. Think about down in Brunswick, Georgia, where the two black teenagers shot the white baby in the face. And so now that’s, again, a life that has been lost because no one intervened and no one tried to get in those communities. You have got a breakdown. It’s not just the family. It’s the education opportunities, job opportunities. We should not have these roving gangs out there saying, we are going to knock someone out just for fun. They should be studying.

VAN SUSTEREN: One attacker, I should tell you, in Michigan, was shot. So we are seeing a little bit of that already.

What should President Obama do, if anything? I mean, is there anything? Would making a statement or putting this out as public dialogue, would that help?

WEST: It would help. You can’t just cherry-pick when you go in to intervene. You can’t look at the Skip Gates issue and say the police officers up there —

VAN SUSTEREN: Harvard.

WEST: Absolutely. Acted stupidly. You can’t jump in and say Trayvon Martin, or it could have been me or it could have been my son. Then you have these instances where you just complete (INAUDIBLE). I think this is an opportunity for him to show some leadership. But once again, it doesn’t fit that political narrative.

VAN SUSTEREN: How about Jesse Jackson and Reverend Sharpton? They can certainly draw attention. They can draw attention toward important issues. Why are they silent?

WEST: There’s no profit in it for them. There’s no political gain or political advantage for them. So why —

VAN SUSTEREN: How about helping these neighborhoods? This is terrorizing some of the inner-city neighborhoods.

WEST: They don’t care. They live off victimization. Therefore, as long as you have black communities that see themselves as victims, that helps to perpetuate their existence. Now, all of a sudden, if you jump in — why aren’t they saying anything in Chicago about the black-on-black crime? They don’t have a point in that. It doesn’t elevate them whatsoever. That’s why these guys should be totally irrelevant and should not be listened to whatsoever

West also makes a great point about the victim mentality that is helping destroy the Black community. It is truly despicable what the Left has done, and is still doing to Blacks in America. Jackson, Sharpton and much of the NAACP leadership give not the first damn about Black Americans. They care about getting richer, and that is it. In short these “leaders” are about the lowest form of life I can imagine. Talk about racists!

Ted Cruz Sets Trayvon Martin’s Mother Straight On Stand Your Ground Laws

WOW! God bless Senator Cruz

I do, of course feel sympathy for this woman, she lost her child, but my sympathy ends when she tries to use the justified killing of her son, and yes, it was, I believe justified, to stamp out my right to defend my life, and the lives of my family. Sorry, but a mother’s grief pales in comparison to the grief that legislating against the most basic human right, that of self-defense, would cause. No “justice” will ever come from disarming the law-abiding or interfering with their right to protect themselves by criminalizing a basic human right.

 

Your Insolent Prick of the Day

Via Moonbattery who exposes this wimpy, bottom feeding, race baiter bill-dorland

One reason the epidemic of black-on-white violence has been getting out of control is that the leftists who control the information establishment have exploited George Zimmerman’s act of justifiable homicide to whip up a false sense of injustice. Months after it was settled, agitprop provocateurs are still milking it, pushing their cultural Marxist propaganda to ever more inflammatory extremes of hyperbole:

An email sent to students by a University of Maryland official that cites the Trayvon Martin shooting as evidence “it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida” is being blasted as the latest evidence of a left-wing bias on campus.

The email, from William Dorland, director of the school’s Honors College, starts by welcoming students back to campus, but then quickly veers into politics.

“This year, we learned that it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida,” it reads, in a reference to the trial of George Zimmerman, who was cleared of all charges in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The email went out to all students in the Honors College.

This statement was part of an effort to promote an appearance at Maryland by the despicable Julian Bond, who Dave Blount rightfully labels a race arsonist.

I have said before that the rash of Black on White violence will, eventually lead to an instance where the intended target has a concealed carry permit. And, when that target refuses to be a victim, and defends themselves watch the Left go into hyper attack mode against the NRA, stand your ground, self-defense, concealed carry permit holders, etc.
