Is anyone really surprised at the out outcome? I don’t mean that from the cynical viewpoint of “what the white man did to the black man”! I mean it from an honest, level-headed attempt to apply the actual “law”, not justice as you perceive it to be.
Plain simple fact is that the prosecution failed to convince the jury “beyond a reasonable doubt” that George Zimmerman set out and planned to kill Trayvon Martin. Period.
The prosecution also failed to convince the jury beyond a reasonable doubt that George Zimmerman put himself in a position where he could “take out” this teenager and use Florida’s “stand your ground” law to get away with it. Again, period.
Is this case about the letter of the law or social justice? Let me start by saying. I do not believe that George Zimmerman had been salivating, fantasizing, and hoping to be able to kill a black person. I just don’t buy it. His life showed no shred of evidence of hatred towards blacks.
Some have bought into the hype that Zimmerman willingly told the 911 operator that the boy was black and it was one of his main descriptors. That’s not true. In fact, the NBC Morning Show doctored up the video to make it look like that. Zimmerman actually initially said that he didn’t know what color Martin but was asked a few more times by the 911 operator trying to get more information.
Too many onlookers are victims of sound bites. This racist, black-hating, Hispanic, self-proclaimed protector of his universe actually had a black girlfriend in high school and took her to the prom. It was documented that he tutored kids in reading, among them many black children. He helped organize and raise money for a black family whose child was in need of medical care. Is this racist backwards day? Maybe!
Now, let’s be honest about this. I don’t know the man. I don’t know if he came from or worked in a neighborhood where violence runs rampant or the violence is perpetrated by young black men or young Asian men or young white men! None of us know.
Is it really racism to be afraid of someone in a hoodie walking toward you late at night with his or her head down? No!
What if you had read that in your neighborhood there had recently been several violent acts carried out at night by people in hoodies? And someone fitting that description approached you? Would you have been afraid?
What if someone in my area wearing a hoodie beat the tar out of me, took my wallet and car keys, and left me for dead? Now when I walk down the street I’m afraid and ready to defend myself, especially if someone approaching me is wearing a hoodie. So am I now a racist?
If you’ve answered “yes” thinking that any of these scenarios smell of racism, it just goes to show how misused the word has become.
What is racism? It is usually defined as “views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable, more desirable, inferior, or superior”.
I call those that commit violent crimes “thugs”, whether they wear hoodies or not. They are not a part of a biological group. They are just someone who has decided that they will get what they want through whatever illegal means necessary and too bad for you.
Trayvon Martin didn’t deserve to die for simply being in the wrong place wearing a hoodie. He didn’t deserve to die for being a young black man in a strange neighborhood. He didn’t deserve to die for the way he may have spoken to Zimmerman. He didn’t deserve to die for the actions of that night.
It was a horrible tragedy. But, there are two tragedies that took place. The death of a young man for what might have been all the wrong reasons and the prosecution of another man because of political pressure.
The Justice Department looked at this last year and took no action, meaning, they had no basis for a case! The sheriff looked at the case and found nothing. The courts have now looked at this and found nothing.
The legal system, like it or not, worked. But it seems like the Jessie Jackson’s and the Al Sharpton’s aren’t going to give up until they get their own special brand of justice. Both reverends have forgotten what the book they follow says… “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority” and “vengeance is mine says the Lord” and then there’s “do not repay evil with evil”.
If a real wrong has been done here reverends, don’t you think your Lord can hand out a better, more just outcome than you can? Isn’t calling for any kind of violence in any way against your “good book”?
At the end of the day all we have managed to do is stir up anger on all sides of the issue.
We need to revisit these kinds of laws and make sure they are written properly so when actions are taken in these situations they can be handled fairly and quickly.
My heart goes out to both families. They each have a lot to deal with.
The worst thing that could happen is more violence and more deaths. That will do nothing to heal us and will only make things worse.
It appears as though former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich may have just had the realization that he is not just waking up from a very bad dream! In fact, he seems to be having to face the fact that his life has become a nightmare.
From the beginning of this Chicago-style drama Blago has said the truth has come out. Indeed it has!
Before entering the courtroom to hear the verdict in his retrial, Mr. Blagojevich said:
“My hands are shaking, my knees are weak, I can barely stand on my own two feet,” Blagojevich said as he left his house. “It’s in God’s hands, now.”
The former governor was found guilty on 17 of 20 charges in his corruption retrial.
It’s interesting that now Blago seems to trust that God will save him from the consequences of his actions. With the mountains of recorded evidence against him, you would think he would realize that it has all caught up to him. However, that does not seem to be the case. It appears that Mr. Blagojevic was legitimately amazed that he would be found guilty.
Upon hearing that he was found guilty, he turned in bewilderment to his attorney and asked, “What happened?’
Well, Blago, that’s what we here in America call Justice! It suits you well!
Now if that same justice could be served to all politicians who have done the same thing! The reality is it is most all of them in one way or another. Blago’s downfall is those recording! He got caught! He just didn’t expect that the jurors would look past his exceptionally coiffed locks and see to the heart of the matter. He broke the law. Now he must pay the price.
It’s a good day in America!
The war of 2012 (elections) is heating up already, and it is sure to be a long hot summer in American politics. The New Democratic Attack Machine is ramping up it’s misinformation messaging platform today like never before seen in American politics. From everything coming out of the Liberal media to the newest Internet propaganda czar being paid by your tax dollars to spread misinformation, this latest version of the Democratic Attack Machine is actually anything but “new”. As a matter of fact it is the same old tired retread of the very same propaganda machines that fake democrats have used for decades, but it is just that they do not want you to recognize it for what it actually is. While the Liberal Democrats attempt to infect America with the cancerous Socialism that has crushed economies across the globe, one must remember that the original Communistic oppressors used Socialist propaganda decades ago to collapse economies worldwide. The American Constitution has protected against this cancer for over 200 years, yet today the infection is so widespread throughout our government and media that we are now facing financial insolvency under the crushing weight of our massive debt problem, largely thanks to the far left Liberal Democratic Attack Machine.
The Demcratic Attack Machine consists of today’s mainstream media, Liberal democrats, and the head rabble-rousing community organizer pictured above, Barack Hussein Obama, all rolled into one Socialistic web of deceit. Back in 2008, The Democratic Attack Machine, led by the Liberal media, installed Obama into the White House simply by bullying the cowardly Senator John McCain into denying him the ability to bring out major negative truths about Obama. Truths such as Obama sitting in a black racist, anti-American church headed by the nasty Rev Wright for twenty years, while the hate-monger screamed G/D America! Truths such as Mr Obama’s close ties with weather-ground terrorist and murderer Bill Ayers, whose living room Barack Obama announced his run for the U.S. Senate from during an Ayers sponsored fundraiser. Truths such as when the Republican party of North Carolina ran an ad exposing these important issues about Mr. Obama, Mr. (afraid of the media bullies) McCain announced that they would not run those types of campaign ads and demanded they pull them! This cowardice and progressive-like truth denial by McCain led many voters to accepting the flat out lies by the media propagandists that all of this information was somehow just a smear campaign by the then non-existent Republican attack machine. That led Americans to elect the far, far, left radical ideologue of one Barack Hussein Obama to the most powerful position in the world, the U.S. presidency. The refusal of John McCain to tell these truths now has the U.S. on the verge of financial insolvency, and one has to wonder just why in the hell the progressive puppet and cowardly John McCain still holds a powerful position in America as a U.S. Senator! Are American votes this stupid and uninformed? Apparently they were, back in 2008, with the help of the brainwashing propaganda coming out of the Liberal controlled media arm of the Democratic Party.
Americans may have been slow to see through the Democratic Attack Machine’s propaganda and pre-planned infection of America by installing far left liberal Barack Obama into the White House, but they did wise up in 2010, after they could not deny the fact that the media was a major factor in helping Liberal Democrats cram the unwanted Socialistic Obama-Care down the throats of Americans through legislative trickery and the flat out ignoring of our Constitution and Congressional rules. Again there was no Republican attack machine present to expose the treasonous government takeover of our health care system, and instead Americans from across the spectrum had to take to grass roots groups and the Internet to expose Obama-care for what it truly is: Socialistic wealth redistribution, stealing 500 billion dollars from Seniors medicare to pay for non-producing freeloaders and the welfare class, while also counting that same 500 billion twice as an accounting gimmick to fool Americans into thinking this scam would somehow reduce health-care costs, increase health-care coverage for millions of people, and reduce the national debt all at the same time! After all, the media, while working tirelessly from within the Democratic Attack Machine, told Americans 24/7 that Obama-care would do all of the aforementioned lies on a daily basis. The people saw through the Democratic Attack Machine’s lies and misinformation, and gave Liberal Democrats the boot from their government in record numbers at local, state and national levels in 2010! Much to the dismay of the establishment GOP, this didn’t come as a result of the old guard GOP running effective, truth-telling informative campaigns across America, but in fact, this came as a result of the grass roots Tea Party Americans countering The Democratic Attack Machine’s massive mainstream media propaganda at every turn, mainly on the Internet information highways, such as Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.
Fast forward to today and we see that The Democratic Attack Machine just stole an election in N.Y. simply by portraying Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget proposal as pushing poor old Granny off a cliff in her wheelchair! At least this is the excuse/propaganda that the media and the GOP are promoting recently. The fact remains that the GOP sat on their rear ends, and let the Democratic Attack Machine steal that election without any hint of an effort by the GOP to quickly counter the misinformation, or even an effort to promote a solid conservative up there. To sum it up, they took that election for granted and got burned big time, to hear the long-time N.Y. State GOP political leaders tell it. This is a prime example on how the lack of a Republican attack machine, or at least a decent effort to engage in the election in N.Y. has now given the Democratic Attack Machine a new platform for stealing elections by spreading misinformation and propaganda on a grand scale in 2012. Now the Liberal Democrats are supposed to be the new best friend of all American Seniors, even though they just stole $500 billion dollars of their health care coverage to pass Obama-Care. How ridiculous is that?
Recently, Barack Obama added a new taxpayer funded member to the Democratic Attack Machine’s ranks, in the form of a new Internet Propaganda Czar named Jesse Lee, who also happens to be married to another member of the Democratic Attack Machine’s propaganda groups, one MoveOn.org. Where in the hell is the GOP House Speaker, Mr. John Boehner on this abuse of taxpayer dollars? Since when does the President of the United States of America have the authority to use taxpayer dollars to fund the Democratic Attack Machine’s propaganda campaign? The truth behind Mr. Lee’s recent position within our government is not to counter the non-existent Republican attack machine that Liberals and Obama used to scream about, but is in fact, Obama’s attempt to counter the truths being exposed about his anti-American agenda on the Internet by Americans across the land. The truth shall set us free from Obama and the Liberals in 2012, no matter how many propagandists The Democratic Attack Machine throws at us.
* This article was partly made possible by Ann Coulter and her book “Guilty“, as the very detailed facts behind the Democratic Attack Machine were so well exposed there that it compelled me to write this article. Thank you Ann, for a great expose’ on the Liberal media and how they are truly the head of The Democratic Attack Machine. I will also be doing a thorough book review here at CDN on “Guilty” soon, as this is definitely a must read for all concerned Americans as we head into the 2012 election campaign!
