Never mind skyrocketing gas prices or a national debt that is an imminent threat to collapse the entire economy. Our rulers want us to think about the Trayvon Martin case instead — or rather, a fictionalized version of it.
Although the facts aren’t yet entirely clear, what actually happened is becoming apparent. A commendable citizen attempting to defend his neighborhood from crime got a little overzealous in following a suspicious-looking punk in a hoodie, the punk attacked him (as a witness confirms), and Zimmerman defended himself, earning him a commendation and the well wishes of all law-abiding Americans. Not being the criminal here, he was on the phone with authorities as events unfolded. The 911 tapes appear to confirm Zimmerman’s innocence. The tapes also confirm that screams from the Establishment Left notwithstanding, Zimmerman was not motivated by “racism,” as he didn’t even know Martin’s race when he started following him, thanks to Martin’s sinister hoodie.
However, liberals have distorted or ignored the facts to create a mostly fictional example of their bogus and corrosive narrative. The media has deliberately twisted the story into a “white” Hispanic hunting down an innocent boy and killing him to oppress blacks.
The hype is alarming, with the New Black Panthers, Obama’s close political allies (see here and here and here and here), offering a bounty on Zimmerman, which may constitute the only actual crime committed in the case.
The usual race demagogues have been shrieking, including Jesse Jackson (who refuses to comment on the New Black Panthers bounty) and Al Sharpton, who has repeatedly inspired his cretinous followers to kill whites in the past.
Predictably, this has been echoed by chilling calls for violence against Zimmerman. The verminous Spike Lee has been retweeting Zimmerman’s home address in hopes of getting him killed. Already the first Caucasians have died in what may have been retaliation for Zimmerman’s apparent act of self-defense.
Meanwhile, white liberals bleat like the pernicious lunatics they are that Zimmerman should be locked up regardless of his innocence. From MSNBC come bizarre cries that Trayvon Martin’s demise should be blamed on Rush Limbaugh or the Koch Brothers.
The crisis was created not by George Zimmerman, let alone Rush or the Koch Brothers, but by professional racial arsonists like Sharpton and the malignant left-wing media, which sees in this an opportunity to attack our right of self-defense and to assist Obama’s reelection campaign by convincing the gullible that they have to prove they aren’t “racists” again.
We need a leader to hold this country together. Instead, we have Barack Hussein Obama issuing the statement that if he had a son, he would have looked like Trayvon Martin, thereby flashing a green light to those who are mendaciously exploiting the incident to advance a race-based leftist agenda.
