Note: Some say this is a different Trayvon Martin who just happens to look similar. As with everything else with this case, we’ll have to wait for the smoke to clear before we know for sure. Thanks to Sad Hill for the heads-up.

    I’ve always wondered why they chose a term like “civil unrest.” Smashing in an innocent truck driver’s skull with a cinderblock is the exact opposite of civil.

    This is a bipartisan problem. There will be no bipartisan accord to restore the Constitution. That can only come from the states following an outpouring of constitutionalist sentiment from we the people.

    Obama has set back race relations decades. I read the comments of black people on Facebook, all of whom are on Trayvon’s side and who decry our justice system (even though a black man is in charge of it, hmmm), but you should read the comments back from white people. A lot of white people are tired of the race card. And it shows.

    Sharpton and Farrakhan aren’t the only ones who can deliver a speech.

    America’s One-Sided Race Card

    Careful not to pull a boner as he did when he condemned Cambridge cop Joe Crowley in 2009 without a scintilla of evidence, President Barack Hussein Obama has weighed in on the tragic Sanford, Florida killing of 17 year old Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman.

    The president, playing the race card for his black base as he did in the Cambridge affair, said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” and demanded exhaustive Sanford, Florida, and federal investigations into the case.

    He declared that “some soul searching” was needed throughout the country but made no reference to why the president of the United States is involving himself in a local matter. As with Sandra Fluke and the female vote, Obama figured he could make points with his African-American constituency by telling them what his son would look like.

    Despite the fact that details are still evolving on the incident, America’s leftists quickly and mindlessly sprang to a verdict of racially-inspired murder and blamed everyone from Zimmerman, who reportedly has a number of African-Americans and Latinos in his family, to Rush Limbaugh, Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, George Romney, and virtually every white person in America.

    At least they didn’t blame Sandra Fluke.

    Professional race-mongers Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton also galloped to the Sunshine State to spread their hateful bile and called for revenge and retribution. It wasn’t clear whom they blamed but presumably it was repressive and murderous white society as well as Zimmerman.

    The racist New Black Panther Party didn’t want to be left out and so circulated a poster reading, “Murdered in Cold Blood, Child Killer of Trayvon Martin, WANTED DEAD or ALIVE.”

    Accused gunman Zimmerman hasn’t been arrested due to lack of concrete evidence in the case and his claim of killing Martin in self-defense after being attacked, a claim substantiated by witnesses, and various Sanford officials have stepped aside to insure a fair and just inquiry.

    No one would question the necessity of a full and thorough investigation into Martin’s death, except perhaps for Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the New Black Panther Party and other racists who have rushed to judgment in order to stir the racial pot, create discord, garner donations, and grab headlines.

    There may be a national need for Obama’s “soul searching” just as there was a need for a “new gentility” as preached by the president following the Tucson shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords and which never came to fruition thanks to relentless incivility from liberals.

    However, there’s an equally-pressing necessity for objective crime reporting by the mainstream media with respect to black crime in America, a crying need that has frequently been addressed on this blogsite and admitted by some members of the MSM.

    See “More Riotous Times in Obamaland,” http://bit.ly/p9gIJM.

    It is my understanding that the photo of Trayvon Martin used above is from the Facebook page of a different Trayvon Martin.

    The correct Facebook page is for “Trayvon Slimm Martin” which is: https://www.facebook.com/people/Trayvon-Slimm-Martin/1353307542?_fb_noscript=1

    A current photo of him is on the memorial program from his funeral: http://gossiponthis.com/2012/03/20/911-calls-released-trayvon-martin-shooting-death/trayvon-martin-shooting-7/

    Perhaps other photos of him can be found on his Facebook page.

    I think Latinos should ask themselves whether they really want to throw their support to this corrupt, insane Democrat party. When the truth finally is revealed, the chasm increase between races will not be between Blacks and Whites but between Blacks and Latinos.

    Democrats blame Bush for high gas prices

    http://money.cnn.com/2004/05/18/news/economy/gas_politics/

    All the usual suspects – Terry Mcaweful, Tom Daschele, a group of Democratic congresscritters sending Bush a harshly worded letter that he needs to get the price of gas down, John Kerry pretending to fight for the little guy.

    Back in 2004 the Dems were all over Bush about gas prices.

    Meanwhile, in Homs Syria, muslims have expelled and/or executed most of the Christian population.

    This, in a less muslim-sensitive world would be called “genocide”.

    Moreover, as Pamela Keller points out, “BO has consistently refused to grant asylum to Christians fleeing persecution while flooding our shores with whole muslim communities under the refugee resettlement program”. (my edit)
    http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/

    Liberals are constantly deriding conservatives for thinking that BO is a muslim.

    But quite frankly, it wouldn’t make any difference if he is or isn’t: his rabidly pro-islam policies would be the same.

    To borrow a phrase from white-hater, ex-clown, and stand-behind-your-body guard-while-roughing-up-a-girl, Chris Rock:

    “you can see why we might be confused”.

    Americans need to stop the politically-correct, happy-horses**t, kumbaya crap and realize that it takes a certain type of sub-moronic cretin to get involved in islam, or to be unable to get out of it.

    The high percentage of Certified and Registered Mental Retardation that is a prerequisite for muslim membership, renders these inbreeders* no one’s friend.

    While lao may have mobile connectivity, there’s a near certainty he may have other things to do for a while, based on THIS.

    In short, lao has a date, he can’t be late for his rendezvous!

  • Bob Roberts

    The left is using the Martin-Zimmerman case to dredge up one of their favorite dead horses: Is our criminal justice system racist?

    As you will note from the lede line of the linked article, the answer is:

    No: the high percentage of blacks behind bars reflects crime rates, not bigotry.

    Unfortunately, anyone who admits this, despite the FACT it is one of those FACTS that lao hates to hear people state (he calls it “prattling”), is immediately branded as a racist bigot and a hater.

    But that doesn’t stop people like Al Sharpton from cooking up a huge pot of racism and stirring it vigorously.

    Sharpton and Jackson calling themselves “reverend” is the sort of thing that, in cartoons, would summon down God’s holy fire. In real life they’ll get what’s coming to them at the end of it.

    Moving on to budgets and taxes, liberals are always demanding we “tax the rich” but now that someone’s suggesting we actually DO it, they’re balking.

    That’s right – Paul Ryan is proposing a plan that will achieve multiple goals the Democrats always say they’re for – but because he’s a Republican and it actually might help get the government out of the hole they’re DELIBERATELY digging, they’re going to oppose it!

    A top rate of 25 percent sounds like a cut from current higher rates, but so few wealthy taxpayers pay the top rate that it would be a significant increase for many of them. In addition, if you means-test entitlements as Ryan suggests, it also means an implicitly higher tax burden on the rich.

    Don’t expect liberals to get this, though. Their propaganda machine is already winding up!

    Here’s a case with some striking parallels to the Martin/Zimmerman case.

    Why aren’t the “usual suspects” crying for blood, demanding this guy be locked up? Could it be because he’s black?

    All of you are ignorant as hell. It doesnt matter if Trayvon was a thug, gangster, Bank robber whatever. He was followed and pursued for now reason what so ever, just because George zimmerman thought he looked suspicious and then shot trayvon when he confronted zimmerman for following him. What zimmerman did is wrong completely and he should be in jail. Everyone needs to grow the fuck up and stop trying to discredit each person and hold the person accountable for taking a young life way to early!

    For the record, Geraldo, the identify of DB Cooper is unknown and the only image we have of him is a police sketch. He wasn’t wearing a hoodie! He was wearing a suit and tie when he committed his crime.

    the boy on the right doesn’t even look like Travyvon… If you mean they’re both black they yes I guess they do look similar. If you took the time to actually look at the faces of both boys you’d soon realize that’s not the case. Also neither photos change anything that happened that night.

  • http://Yahoo.com Kristin

    Oh really? Because none of you ever took pictures flipping off the camera as TEENAGERS. Also? Since when is a mugshot biased? Pretty sure they are standard photos for murder trials. This is irrelevant information anyways. Zimmerman was stalking Trayvon in the dark with a gun. He had no right to follow or approach him. End of story.

  • Spicywiener

    The pic above really is NOT the Trayvon meant, but there are many pictures of the real one -and his middle fingers- available. I took the liberty to correct that.
