The dumbest thing I have ever read

Brian Beutler, writing lying profusely at Salon  illustrates how the left works. NO matter what the facts are, they ignore them if they do not match their agenda

You can read the whole thing, in which Beutler LIES not only about the Zimmerman case, but also about Conservatives and Black crime rates. Beutler claims that a “few Blacks are causing problems” when in fact young Black men commit 14 TIMES as many murders as young White men do. He also ignores the high violent crime rate among Black youths, and that the most common victims are also Black. But the most obvious lies are about the Zimmerman trial

So let’s review: George Zimmerman wouldn’t have shot Trayvon Martin if he hadn’t been profiling by race. And even if he had been, the shooting feasibly wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t been legally allowed to carry a handgun and didn’t think he was empowered by law to take matters into his own hands. The monstrous killing of Chris Lane has no such back story. The killers apparently had no motive whatsoever, were armed illegally, and certainly weren’t trailing Lane because they believed, based on his race, that he might be a criminal. They are, however, likely to face serious prison time for their crimes. Zimmerman walked.

Profiling? There is no evidence of that, except in the warped mind of fools like Beutler of course. And there is also NO evidence, did Beutler actually watch the Zimmerman trial, that Zimmerman took the law into his own hands. He defended himself, and no, again, Stand Your Ground was not his defense, but Beutler is loathe to ever admit that. Can’t let facts stand in the way of the agenda can you Beutler?

Put that all together, and it turns out these stories aren’t counter-parallel at all. And more to the point, the events don’t even anecdotally augur for policies the right supports. The kids in Oklahoma weren’t “standing their ground,” and a “stand your ground” law wouldn’t have saved Chris Lane. Neither would a stop-and-frisk regime — the killers were trailing him in a car. By contrast, a “stand your ground” environment and a stop-and-frisk mentality were instrumental in Trayvon Martin’s death. Take either away, and there’s a good chance he’d be alive today. Martin in fact personified the statistical folly of stop-and-frisk. If Zimmerman had yielded to real police, they would have, in absence of any suspicious behavior, stopped Martin, frisked him and found only the skittles and iced tea that made his death that much more tragically poignant.

How Stop and Frisk, of which I am not a fan of either, had a damn thing to do with Trayvon Martin is beyond me. Zimmerman did not stop him, or attempt to frisk him. AGAIN, the evidence in the trial clearly pointed to Martin attacking Zimmerman and Zimmerman, fearing for his life, acting legally by defending himself. By the way, if Beutler ever did any research he would find that stand your ground laws, and concealed carry laws REDUCE violent crime rates, but, those are facts so Beutler has no interest in them. Stand your ground laws were not applicable in the Zimmerman case, yet Beutler continues to insist they did somehow. He is too busy trying to make some point. Maybe he might pause in his crusade for gun control for just a moment and ask himself one question. Why does he have to LIE to try to prove he is right?

H/T to That Mr. G Guy and The Other McCain, who also takes the foul stench of truthlessness to the ideological woodshed

Generally speaking, every word published by Salon is the exact opposite of truth, and they only employ writers so fanatically dishonest that even such infamous organs of mendacity as the New York Times and theWashington Post want nothing to do with them.

Anyone published by Salon is a wretched human stain, and they’re never going to get a link from me, but Brian Beutler’s deliberate dishonesty got him a Memeorandum thread yesterday

In short, Salon is like MSNBS, which is to say, a cesspool of Leftist lies and distortions. Beutler is just another turd floating around in said cesspool.

More Leftist Pimping Trayvon Martin’s Death

Time to use it to brainwash kids apparently

Middle and high school students in San Diego, California will be encouraged to vent their frustration that the world lacks justice when they return to school and participate in the “Trayvon Martin dialogues” this fall.

The sponsors of San Diego’s Trayvon Martin dialogues, however, believe the resolution of the case has produced in teenagers “feelings of fear, anger, and skepticism that they will live in a just society,” according to The College Fix

The full proposal calls for forum participants to explicitly condemn “stand your ground” laws, which permit citizens to use force to defend themselves in dangerous situations instead of retreating. Florida’s law was erroneously credited with prompting the conflict between Martin and Zimmerman, though the matter never became a significant factor at the trial, since Zimmerman had no option to retreat, according to his official testimony.

Why not call for students to STUDY what these laws actually say, and study the RESULTS of these laws?

The dialogues will “allow students to talk about the world view that prompted George Zimmerman to confront Trayvon Martin,” and “allow students to speak honestly about the ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws that could give one person an unfair advantage over another and the pros and cons of their perceptions,” according to the proposal.

Unfair advantage? Lord we would not want to give any advantage to a law-abiding American threatened by  a violent thug now would we? When did Liberal brainwashing become an essential part of education? Stalin would be proud I am sure.

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?

 

Get ready for the Left to hold up this Zimmerman juror as a hero

Via The Blaze

In an interview with ABC News set to air Thursday, the woman, known only as “Maddy,” said everyone on the all-female jury felt Zimmerman was guilty, but that the evidence didn’t let them convict him.

“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” Maddy said. “But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”

Note that she says there was not evidence to convict Zimmerman. That is something the media will no doubt completely ignore when they start blowing this out of proportion tomorrow. The media, and Liberal politicians will focus ONLY on the “we felt he was guilty” part of her interview. Odd it is that she says in the interview that she was the one dissenter against acquitting him

She revealed that she wanted to convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder, and “fought to the end” before finally voting to acquit.

“I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. I fought to the end,” she said.

But on the second day of deliberations, she said, she realized there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder or of manslaughter, which the jury was also allowed to consider.

So after sitting through the trial, and after two days of deliberations, THEN, she finally realized there was no evidence? Sorry that does not add up. Sounds to me, and this is only an opinion here, that she is trying to ingratiate herself with the Left here. Wonder how many times MSNBS will have her on?

 

Oh great, now President Obama is playing the race baiting game

A sad day, but, considering who our president is, no surprise

Oh good grief, the Left is going balls out to exploit this “racial” incident that had not one damn thing to do with race, unless you want to point to Trayvon Martin the Cracker hater that is. Exploit, exploit, exploit. And if more riots are sparked, so be it. Hell maybe sparking more riots IS the goal here. Think about it, ramp up the rhetoric and the emotion, spark more riots. More Americans are concealed carry permit holders now, so the odds that someone uses a gun to defend themselves or property against rioting thugs increases. Then, use those shooting as examples of the racist heart of America, and to condemn gun owners even more and pump up the pressure for more gun control, laws. Diabolical? Sure, but, remember the Left means it when they say by any means necessary. They mean it when they say no justice no peace, and yes they certainly mean it when they talk of not letting a good crisis go to waste. And no, they are not above creating crisis. Hell, this whole Zimmerman trial is evidence of that!

If you have 17 minutes to waste, here is President Obama’s entire speech

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.

 

 

List: Violence, Lawlessness Since Zimmerman Verdict

List: Violence, Lawlessness Since Zimmerman Verdict – Big Journalism

While we hope this list grows no larger, Breitbart News needs your help. If you come across a lawless incident involving the Zimmerman trial verdict, please tweet me @NolteNC or email the link to jnolte@breitbart.com. Also let me know if there is an accidental duplicate posting. We want this list to be as accurate and comprehensive as possible.

.

The same media that attempted to blame a mother of five in Wasilla, Alaska, for a mass shooting in Arizona (because of her use of standard crosshairs on a campaign map) is the same media that repeatedly described the shockingly lawless Occupy Wall Street movement as “mostly peaceful,” and is now attempting to persuade America that the anti-Zimmerman protests currently being ginned up by an NBC News anchor (MSNBC’s Al Sharpton) are also “mostly peaceful.”

Below is a far from comprehensive list of reported acts of lawlessness (violence, vandalism, trespassing, drug use, arrests, assault, etc.) that have been reported by various media outlets.

Please note that the media are very good at reporting specific incidents, and just as good at not connecting those incidents in order to ensure America is never told the full story…

While an anti-science media, Democrats, leftists, and some Republicans continue to stoke racial division without a shred of evidence that race had anything to do with anything, here is what is happening throughout the country in this cynical wake:

Black Teens Beat Sanford Man 13 Times In Head With Hammer… Media Silent – Gateway Pundit

Where’s the outrage?

Where are Al and Jesse?

Where’s Eric Holder?

.

Hammer time. Suspects Julius Bender, and Yahaziel Israel beat the victim with a hammer then dragged him from his car and beat him some more. (WFTV)

A Florida man was severely injured when black teens teens beat him with a hammer a month after the Trayvon Martin shooting.

The media has been mostly silent on this brutal crime.

October Freedom’s Blog reported:

A fifty year old man, race undisclosed, is on life support after a near fatal beating. Police have arrested two black teens. The attack occurred near the community where the Trayvon Martin self-defense shooting took place.

The victim is from Winter Springs, which is 88% white. The victim was attacked in nearby Midway, which is 94% black. Both communities are within about a six-mile radius of Sanford.

Hat Tip Mara

The victim’s father was searching for answers after the attack.

The Daily News reported:

A Jacksonville business owner is searching for answers following a vicious attack on his son almost two weeks ago in Seminole County,Fla.

Frank Slavin, the owner of Slavin Gallery in Jacksonville, told The Daily News Friday that his son Mark Slavin, 50, has been in critical condition and on life support at Orlando Regional Medical Center since the attack on March 26.

“It doesn’t look good for him, it doesn’t look good at all,” he said.

Slavin said his son, a graduate of Lejeune High School, has massive injuries to his skull after receiving 13 blows to the head with a hammer. He said Mark, who is single and a salesman for a furniture company in Orlando,Fla., was so badly battered that he was unidentifiable.

According to an arrest report from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, a man called 911 on March 26 to report hearing a man screaming for help. The caller said he saw two men pulling a third man from a vehicle and beating him with a hammer. The two dragged the man into nearby woods and continued to attack him, according to the report. The two fled the scene in the man’s vehicle before deputies arrived.

Julius Bender, 18, and Yahaziel Israel, 19, both of Sanford, Fla., were charged on March 30 by the sheriff’s office with attempted homicide, burglary with assault or battery and armed burglary in connection to the attack.

A tip received through the area’s Crime Line led investigators to Bender andIsrael, according to the release. Bender was identified through witness identification, and Israel was linked to the vehicle through forensic evidence.

It is not known how Mark Slavin is doing today after the brutal beating last year.

It is also not clear if this beating had anything to do with Trayvon’s death.
