While delivering the commencement speech at historically black Morehouse College, President Obama predictably utilized “victimology 101″ to access the inner victim that presumably exists inside all black Americans. He disingenuously reminded the all-male graduates, “As an African American, you have to work twice as hard as anyone else if you want to get by.” Unsurprisingly, this underhanded insinuation that racism is so pervasive that no amount of individual effort will overcome it received a thunderous ovation, even though this recycled notion has the legitimacy of a three-dollar bill.
Ironically, the president’s lack of credentials suggests that even he didn’t have to “work twice as hard” to obtain his current position. Unbelievably, in spite of Blacks having achieved unprecedented positions of power today, including a Black First Family, the gross delusion that Blacks must “work twice as hard” maintains equity within the Black community. Nevertheless, the unpopular and simple truth needs to be verbalized… Blacks are not expected to “work twice as hard.” This open secret is known to independent thinkers, unbiased observers, non-liberals, truly qualified individuals, and those who’ve escaped the crab barrel. In fact, society has routinely lowered the bar and expectations for Blacks in attempt to close the widening achievement gap. There’s a reason why Affirmative Action has become synonymous with Blacks even though it was designed for all minorities. Coincidentally, Morehouse is located in Atlanta, where the predominately Black school district’s students didn’t have to “work twice as hard” because the Black superintendent orchestrated the biggest cheating scandal in Georgia’s history to help them.
Florida’s board of education obviously disagrees with the fallacy of Blacks having to “work twice as hard,” as evidenced by their lowering of academic standards for Black students. Additionally, Florida only expects seventy-four percent of their Black pupils to be proficient in Math and Reading (at grade level or better) by the year 2018. As far as Florida’s expectations for its Asian/White/ Latino students, seventy-four percent is an unacceptable indication of underachievement; such status is reserved for Blacks. In Virginia, Black students seemingly don’t have to “work twice as hard” either because the state implemented educational goals for Blacks that are near the level of students with disabilities. According to npr.org, “Here’s what the Virginia state board of education actually did. It looked at students’ test scores in reading and math and then proposed new passing rates. In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities.” The upside of Black students being placed at the bottom is that there’s nowhere else to go but up… unless “up” requires them to “work twice as hard.” One frustrating aspect of this ‘cater to the lowest denominator’ liberal ideology becomes apparent on graduation day. These schools don’t issue the coddled, Black graduates diplomas that reflect their pre-approved statuses for, academic shortcuts. Nope, they receive the same diploma (that used to be based on merit and successful comprehension of the core curriculum) as their diverse counterparts who were held to a higher standard. In other words, the Black students unfairly receive equal reward without equal effort. Despite this favorable dynamic, Black parents still audaciously warn their children, “As an African American, you have to work twice as hard as anyone else if you want to get by.”
The Manhattan Institute released a 2006 study that surveyed the 100 largest school districts in the United States. It found that only 48 percent of Black males earn a high school diploma, which was 11 percent less than Black females. It also noted that 1 in 4 Black males who drop out of high school end up incarcerated. Although Whites are 63.4% of the U.S population and Blacks are only 13%, the U.S. Department of Education noted that in 2007, not one state had a White high school student dropout rate higher than the Black dropout rate. Additionally that same year (2007), there were twenty-one states where the dropout rate for Black high school students was at least double that of White high school students. Remember, Blacks are only 13% of the population and these statistics confirm the academic apathy that is pervasive in the Black community. Although the academic atmospheres in many school districts have become severely relaxed to accommodate Blacks, school still isn’t embraced. Alternatively, Blacks have statistically chosen to “work twice as hard” at being career-criminals or permanent passengers on the welfare train. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reveals, “Dropouts also make up disproportionately higher percentages of the nation’s prison and death row inmates. Comparing those who drop out of high school with those who complete high school, the average high school dropout is associated with costs to the economy of approximately $240,000 over his or her lifetime in terms of lower tax contributions, higher reliance on Medicaid and Medicare, higher rates of criminal activity, and higher reliance on welfare.”
I’m emphasizing to Blacks what’s actually correct and not what’s politically correct. Instead of reinforcing the falsehood that Blacks have to “work twice as hard” because of racism, they should “work twice as hard” to exorcise the victimization, criminality, and entitlement mentalities that are omnipresent in the Black community… and exploited by the Democrats.
. . . “With all due respect, your three boys have hit the American trifecta of privilege,” Roberts told Barnicle on Morning Joe. “They are white, straight males, presumably.”
“If you are an ‘other’ in this country,” Roberts said, ”and that means if you are an LGBT, if you are hispanic, if you are black, if you are a woman, right now, we are fighting to prove why ‘other’ is not bad, and why we are due the value of American rights.”
CHRIS JANSING: Whatever your opinion is about this case and whether or not you think that the prosecution proved its case, I think there is one thing that is undeniable. And that is, the result of this case, there are 12-year-olds who are crawling into bed with their parents tonight out of fear and while there may be some more legal recourses, some more legal issues that will be dealt with in the courts, there are other things that are going on right now. Including a phone call among civil rights leaders about where do we go next. We’ll talk about that when we come back.
Here’s a shocker, even though the assault took place next to an ABC News van, they failed to get any video of the attack.
Via Daily Caller:
Christian Hartsock, a conservative journalist and filmmaker, says he was assaulted and beaten down to the ground by a mob with repeated strikes to the face while reporting at a Trayvon Martin rally in downtown Oakland Sunday night. [...]
Hartsock continued, “The two young men came back up to me and told me to leave. I told them ‘no’ and asked them what their issue was. Then other ralliers, noticing the two young men’s belligerence toward me, assumed I must have been up to something, so they began to approach me too and ask me what my problem was. I explained that I didn’t have a problem and didn’t know why I was being suddenly questioned. Within seconds there was an entire circle around me, threats being leveled from every direction.”
“One young man chanted ‘There’s gonna be some violence tonight!’” Hartsock said. “He then came up to me and demanded I erase the footage from my phone — another request I declined.”
“As two other young men interrogated me, their friend behind them came up and a young man then slugged me in the face about three times — hard — and demanded that I leave,” Hartsock said. “Then I began getting clocked by others in my left temple and jaw by other assailants and was mowed to the ground by about half a dozen of them.”
Hartsock feared the worst. “For a couple minutes I was pinned down to the ground — one gentleman on top of me slugging me across the face repeatedly as an indeterminable number of others kicked me in the side of the head, and tried to get my phone out of my hand… The harder my grip tightened, the harder their punches to my face became,” he said.
Politics does indeed permeate our judicial system through the two should NEVER mix, and that was proven with George Zimmerman being rightly found NOT guilty Saturday night in a unanimous decision...much to the chagrin of race-baiters Barack HUSSEIN Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and their ilk who used Zimmerman as a pawn in their attempt to open healing racial wounds to serve their own political agendas.
Starting with overcharging George Zimmerman with second-degree murder, this case has now ignited a national debate over self-defense laws and race relations as six jurors reached a verdict that proved that sometimes a tragedy NO matter how sad it might be for a family is just NOT a crime... especially when the victim is portrayed to be something he is NOT.
George Zimmerman never denied shooting Trayvon Martin, but he said he did so in self defense. And while nobody is happy that a young man is dead, the bottom line is that Trayvon Martin was a 17-year old thug NO matter how many times the prosecution called him a 'sweet child'. Coming to light after the verdict was reached was that the prosecution knew that Trayvon had jewelery and such in his possession that clearly did NOT belong to him, yet they hid this fact from the defense until it was too late to use as the biased judge had already ruled that Trayvon's 'character' would NOT be allowed to be brought into evidence.
Nor would the truth about the Skittles and iced tea be allowed into evidence, a combination when mixed with cough syrup becomes a street drug and a cheap high (known as Purple Drank or Lean) even while knowing that both were found unopened by the police at the scene...nor were Trayvon's cell phone pics of his homegrown marijuana plants, the pics of him blowing joint smoke, the pic of his hand holding a gun, or the pics of him with his middle fingers in the air with a look on his face that was chilling...nor were his text messages with obvious racial overtones and bravado about his fighting abilities...nor was his past incident about punching a bus driver in a fit of rage.
NO...none of this would be allowed into evidence by a judge so obviously biased towards the prosecution, with an attitude so arrogant that her very demeanor was an insult to everyone in that courtroom. Judge Debra Nelson herself needs to be reprimanded a least, disbarred at best, as she ruled time and again NOT to allow defense evidence into testimony.
And in a last minute grandstand play, Judge Nelson told the jurors that in addition to the second-degree murder charge, they could also find George Zimmerman guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter (a charge where the prosecutors only had to convince the jury that Zimmerman killed without lawful justification), but NEVER telling them that a manslaughter conviction could have George Zimmerman facing up to 30 years in prison. And earlier Saturday, showing how shocked even they were at the inclusion of this new charge, the jury sent a note to the judge requesting clarification of instructions related to manslaughter, giving credence to how seriously they were reviewing the case, and how seriously they were looking at the possibility of what many considered a compromise verdict.
Before deliberations began the jury was instructed by Judge Nelson that “Zimmerman cannot be guilty of manslaughter by committing a merely negligent act or if the killing was either justifiable or excusable homicide.” But probably a critical turning point in the jury deliberations was when Nelson refused to answer their direct question on what really was the level required for the crime of manslaughter, as her refusal allowed Nelson's constant indigent attitude to finally come to a head, and this refusal could have been a light bulb moment for the jury who might now have realized that George Zimmerman was being railroaded.
The NOT guilty verdict means the jury found that Zimmerman justifiably used deadly force, as per Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' law. They came to the conclusion that he reasonably believed that such force was "necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm" to himself, which is Florida's definition of self-defense.
The charges broke down as followed: for second-degree murder the jurors would have had to believe that Martin's unlawful killing was "done from ill will, hatred, spite or an evil intent" and would be "of such a nature that the act itself indicates an indifference to human life."
To convict Zimmerman of manslaughter, the jurors would have had to believe he "intentionally committed an act or acts that caused the death of Trayvon Martin."
Thankfully, after deliberating for 16 hours, the jury came back with a verdict of NOT guilty on all charges...and that should have ended this sad case...a case that should NEVER have been brought in the first place, a case hyped by the media and instigated by Barack HUSSEIN 'If I had a son he'd look like Trayvon' Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and their racist ilk. But instead this is what happens...even after head prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda said, "I am disappointed in the verdict but I respect it. We accept the jury's verdict"...Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman of the NAACP said that just because Zimmerman had been cleared on all charges doesn't mean that this case is over. So on Saturday night a petition was posted to the Department of Justice, asking AG Eric Holder to file civil rights charges against Zimmerman, saying there is no more fundamental civil right than the right to live.
But this case as presented by both the prosecution and the defense was NEVER a case about race or civil rights but a case about a killing done in self-defense, so the NAACP is way off base on this one. And also important to note is that soon after the killing took place the FBI did their own investigation and found NO racial bias in reference to this event.
And so while both sides did ask for peace even before the verdict was read, people like Jesse Jackson were fueling the flames of racial discontentment. On FOX News' Judge Jeanine show on Saturday night, this miserable excuse of a man said the only verdict he would accept would be second-degree murder or manslaughter, and that he would NOT be happy with anything else. First, who gives a damn what Jesse Jackson would accept, and second, his words sounded very much like a threat of violence if the verdict didn't go how he and his ilk wanted it to go.
And adding even more discontentment, big mouth, race-baiter Al Sharpton issued a statement saying, "The acquittal of George Zimmerman is a slap in the face to the American people".
NO...I don't think so as the acquittal of George Zimmerman shows that our system of justice still works in spite of the liberal left and the racial bigots trying to hijack it.
As expected after the NOT Guilty verdict came down the internet came alive with all sorts of rage against Zimmerman (and small scale rioting did break out in some cities), so much so that now George Zimmerman will have to live his life in fear of a fringe element who have said, at least in tweets and on the internet, that they 'demand' revenge for Trayvon.
One person wrote on twitter, "What kind of world do we live in where an innocent is killed, and the killer is found innocent?...America has given a free pass to murder black youth." And while many blacks believed this case was about generations of young black men being targeted, stalked, and brutalized by police, security guards, neighborhood watches and the courts NOTHING could be further from the truth as most so-called 'black innocents' are killed as a result of black-on-black crime NOT by the perceived notion that whites are after young black men.
And this is something Obama and his ilk don't want anyone to know for they'd rather condemn and accuse non-blacks, even without evidence, while they ignore the murder of their own by peoplebytheir own people. For them, feeding into the perception is more important than facts, but the fact is that93% of blacks killed in America are killed by blacks, And the truth is that while blacks make up only 12.5% of the US population they commit nearly 40% of murders in America every year, with nearly 50% of those murder victims being black. Yet remember that blacks make up only 12.5% of the total population culminating in the sad reality that blacks kill more members of their own race every year than do all other races in America combined.
And with NO outrage within the black community about this most truthful of all sad realities, the perception of 'the white man' doing injustice to 'the black man' will continue...egged on by the likes of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and their ilk, because racial divide serves their purposes of bringing America to her knees oh so well.
And through George Zimmerman...a now officially adjudicated innocent man...all their racism, bigotry, and hate will funnel as they work towards their goal of starting a race war here in America.
Many were surprised at Janet Napolitano’s announcement that she will leave her position as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at the end of August to become president of the University of California. Chosen from more than 300 candidates vying for the position, Napolitano managed to keep her interest in that position, and her successful bid for it, from the public until Friday.
She issued the usual departure appreciation statement:
I thank President Obama for the chance to serve our nation during this important chapter in our history. And I know the Department of Homeland Security will continue to perform its important duties with the honor and focus that the American public expects.
In response the president issued his dutiful reply:
Since day one, Janet has led my administration’s effort to secure our borders, deploying a historic number of resources, while also taking steps to make our immigration system fairer and more consistent with our values.
And the American people are safe and more secure thanks to Janet’s leadership in protecting our homeland against terrorist attacks.
Senator Jeff Sessions, (R-Ala.), saw things just a little differently: Napolitano’s tenure has been marked “by a consistent disrespect for the rule of law,” he observed.
Almost from her first day in office Napolitano failed to grasp the difference between truth and falsehood. Taking office in January 2009, she stoked controversy and an angry response from the Canadian ambassador when she incorrectly claimed that the September 11, 2001 attackers had entered the United States from Canada. When caught, she demurred without apology:
To the extent that terrorists have come into our country … across a border, it’s been across the Canadian border. There are real issues there.
All of the 9/11 terrorists arrived in the United States from outside North America. They flew to major U.S. airports. They entered the U.S. with documents issued by the United States government, and no 9/11 terrorists came from Canada.
Thus began the long litany of inaccuracies, distortions, and cover-ups issued by Napolitano and her agency. In an interview with CNN’s Candy Crowley about how the DHS “system” worked in deflecting an attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 into Detroit on Christmas Day, 2009, Napolitano said:
One thing I'd like to point out is that the system worked. Everybody played an important role here. The passengers and crew of the flight took appropriate action. Within literally an hour to 90 minutes of the incident occurring, all 128 flights in the air had been notified to take some special measures in light of what had occurred on the Northwest Airlines flight.
When forced to correct the account, Napolitano told Matt Lauer on December 28 that her comments “were taken out of context” and admitted that in fact “our system did not work.”
Napolitano either allowed or encouraged a “female sorority house” environment at the highest levels of her department that resulted in a federal discrimination lawsuit being filed by special Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent James Hayes which claimed her subordinates, Dora Schriro and Suzanne Barr, mistreated and sexually harassed him and other male staffers. When Hayes first reported the misbehaviors (beyond propriety to describe here) to the Equal Employment Opportunity Office, Napolitano launched a series of misconduct investigations against him. Soon thereafter Barr went on leave and then resigned altogether in September, 2012.
The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment…
The consequences of a prolonged economic downturn — including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability to obtain credit — could create a fertile recruiting environment for rightwing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past.
The report referred to various “conspiracy theories” that might put the country at risk, along with a porous Mexican border:
Historically, domestic rightwing extremists have feared, predicted, and anticipated a cataclysmic economic collapse in the United States. Prominent anti government conspiracy theorists have incorporated aspects of an impending economic collapse to intensify fear and paranoia among like-minded individuals and to attract recruits during times of economic uncertainty…
DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremist groups’ frustration over a perceived lack of government action on illegal immigration has the potential to incite individuals or small groups toward violence.
When challenged about those “findings," Napolitano was forced to make numerous apologies and her department admitted to a “breakdown in internal processes” in creating the report.
Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), chairman of the Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency, noted in an editorial in March that the Government Accounting Office (GAO) identified billions of dollars in cost overruns incurred by the DHS and that even the DHS Inspector General’s office identified more than $1 billion in “questionable” expenses. He pointed out that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), one of Napolitano’s agencies, pays salaries of more than $100,000 a year to over 3,500 bureaucrats while the DHS itself was paying out performance bonuses of $61 million in 2011. As Duncan noted:
Our country is over $16 trillion in debt. Numerous examples of departmental cost overruns, schedule delays and performance problems cannot continue in this constrained budget environment.
One is reminded of General Sherman’s March to the Sea where total war against Georgia citizens was waged in late 1864 in order to destroy Georgia’s economy. The obvious benefit of Napolitano’s departure for the University of California is that she may be likely to inflict less damage there than she did as head of the DHS.
Liberals, gotta give to them, they sure know how to keep the most inept on top. One has to feel sorry for he students at UC....
George Zimmerman, the Florida man accused of murdering Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012, was found not guilty. The verdict was announced at 10:02 ET.
The verdict is the culmination of a case that captured the nation’s attention and will undoubtedly be imprinted in America’s history. The not guilty verdict means the jury of six women found that Zimmerman justifiably used deadly force and reasonably believed that such force was “necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm” to himself — Florida’s definition of self-defense.
Zimmerman showed no emotion as the verdict was read. After the verdict was read, he smiled slightly and shook hands with one of his lawyers.
The women decided Zimmerman didn’t “intentionally commit an act or acts that caused death” or demonstrate a “depraved mind without regard for human life” –Florida’s definitions of manslaughter and second degree murder, respectively.
In a press conference after the verdict was read, lead prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda said, “I am disappointed in the verdict but I respect it. We accept the jury’s verdict.”
“It means there was reasonable doubt,” said Susan Constantine, a jury consultant and body language expert who attended Zimmerman’s trial regularly. “They just could not put the pieces together.” (source)
The case has been a source of extreme controversy and division since the shooting occurred. Initially Zimmerman was not charged. Florida has a “stand your ground” law, which allows for whatever force is necessary to defend oneself. Protests across the country claiming that Trayvon, a black man, was killed for reasons of race drove public sentiment. The media coverage forced the hand of authorities, and Zimmerman, a Hispanic man, was charged and brought to trial.
With the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the country now awaits another set of protests – and these may become violent.
The New Black Panther Party has reportedly begun a mobilization campaign to target white communities.
According to a recent post on Sodahead, leader Samir Shabazz and the New Black Panthers are preparing to take the fight directly to those guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin – white people living in suburbs all over America.
“This time we’re doing it right… This time we’re not burning down our communities. This time we’re going out to Whitey’s suburbs and burning down HIS community. We’re going to make Whitey feel the pain.”
House Democrats warned Sunday that the George Zimmerman’s acquittal on murder charges in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin sets a dangerous precedent for protection under “stand-your-ground” laws.
Speaking on CNN’s State of the Union, Reps. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) said they were worried that the ruling in Florida would embolden others to act accordingly.
“You empower individual citizens to basically take the law into their own hands,” Grijalva said, adding that he supported calls for the U.S. Justice Department to level federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman.
On February 26 of last year, Zimmerman, 29, followed Martin through a Sanford Florida neighborhood and shot him to death following a brief struggle.
Fattah faulted Zimmerman’s jury for declining to convict him on even lesser charges.
Former Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse fired off an incendiary stream of tweets late Saturday night suggesting that racism and politics prompted the jury to acquit George Zimmerman of all charges.
At 11.23 p.m., Woodhouse – who left the DNC job two weeks ago – retweeted a message claiming that the jury was racist.
“I think in post-Obama America its easy to forget race matters still matter. Zimmerman was innocent the moment they sat an all white jury,” said the original tweet from Cornell Belcher, a Democratic-affiliated African-American political strategist.
At 10.25, Woodhouse broadcast a tweet suggesting that Zimmerman was acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin because he is not black.
“RT @ryangrim: Does anyone honestly believe Trayvon would have been acquitted if he had shot Zimmerman and told the same story?”
Race Pimp Al Sharpton Demands Federal Investigation Of Zimmerman…
Sharpton: Jump! Holder: How high?
Al Sharpton told Meet the Press host David Gregory Sunday morning about his plans to pursue civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, following the latter’s acquittal Saturday night for the murder of Trayvon Martin.
“Clearly there are grounds for a civil rights charges,” Sharpton told Gregory.
Sharpton, a key figure in metastasizing the shooting into a national issue in March of 2012, said he and Martin’s family had planned from the beginning to ask for a federal investigation if Zimmerman was let go.
“The mother and father of Trayvon Martin and I with their lawyers met with the U.S. attorneys in Florida, the day I went down to organize the first rally there,” Sharpton said. “We always said there needed to be a Plan B, but there needed to be a Plan A.”
“I watched the whole trial, and no one can say what Trayvon Martin did wrong,” Sharpton argued. “‘They always get away with it,’ the gentleman said. Who is they getting away with what? That’s the basis of a civil rights trial.”
The head of the country’s largest civil rights group said Sunday that the organization has had ongoing discussions with staff of Attorney General Eric Holder on whether the justice department should go after George Zimmerman in a federal civil rights case.
In a statement, NAACP president Ben Jealous said the group was “outraged and heartbroken” after a jury of six women found Zimmerman not-guilty of second degree murder Saturday night in the fatal shooting of unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. Jealous told CNN’s Candy Crowley on State of the Union that the organization is calling for further investigation into the case.
The FBI interviewed dozens of Zimmerman’s acquaintances last year and found no evidence of racial motives.
“We’ve talked to senior people on [Holder's] team and we’re glad that what they began months back continues, which is a serious reviewing of everything that came out in this case,” Jealous said.
Portland “Justice For Trayvon Rally”: “Every Cop Is A F-*cking Target”
At a “Justice for Trayvon” rally in Portland, Oregon Saturday evening, several speakers reacted to the acquittal of George Zimmerman by calling for violence, including the specific targeting of police.
According to video of the event provided by the “Laughing at Liberals” channel on YouTube, one demonstrator declared: “In my mind, every f***ing cop is a f***ing target.”
'The Justice Department is going to take a look at this.'
Senate majority leader Harry Reid said the George Zimmerman trial "isn't over" and said he thinks "the Justice Department is going to take a look at this."
The NBC host asked, "And the president, does he have a role in speaking about it as he did after the shooting?"
"Yeah, of course," said Reid. "And I think the Justice Department's going to take a look at this. You know, this isn't over with, and I think that's good, that's our system. It's gotten better, not worse."
This morning, the media is filled with perceived outrage. Here are the headlines on this morning’s Huffington Post main page:
Not Guilty…But Not Innocent

No Justice, No Peace: What I’ve Felt and What Is Next in the Wake of the Trayvon Martin Verdict
Interestingly, Huff Post has no headlines with a bias towards the Zimmerman verdict. The balance is all shifted against him.
Then there are the outraged celebrity statements.
First of all, Beyonce had a moment of silence to “honor” Trayvon Martin:
After asking the crowd to be silent for a moment, she sang the chorus of “I Will Always Love You,” a song written by country music star Dolly Parton and brought to a global audience by the late Whitney Houston, before transitioning into her hit “Halo.” (source)
Young Jeezy wrote a song, “It’s a Cold World (A Tribute to Trayvon Martin)”, that he posted to Facebook, with the following comment:
“I am in no way shape, form, or fashion … trying to capitalize off of the latest series of events. These are my true feelings and my form of expression about it.” (source)
Producer and entrepeneur Russell Simmons took to his blog stating that:
…he’d be supporting the Trayvon Martin Foundation in helping to repeal laws like Florida’s Stand Your Ground law. He signed off, “God bless you little brother. Rest in peace.”(source)
Even more preposterous are the tweets.
Actually, don’t die in a fire, George Zimmerman. Live your whole miserable life knowing you killed an innocent child for nothing.
The question is, are the opinions of the celebrities their own, or are these just more “endorsements” paid for by the US government? Of course, they wouldn’t disclose that, would they? I wonder what the going rate for selling your soul on Twitter is these days.
It might sound far fetched to say that the government is paying for these “opinions” but some recently released smoking gun evidence makes a good case for the premise that the government hopes to initiate a race war and the chaos that will follow.
March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.
March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.”
What is truly questionable is the reason that the government and the media would want to change public opinion. What are they trying to cover up? Is this a giant distraction from the ongoing scandals in Washington DC? Or is it a sinister step towards inciting enough chaos to justify the institution of martial law? Mike Rivero of What Really Happened writes:
I cannot emphasize enough that right now the US GovernmentWANTS race riots in cities across America, to distract from IRS-gate, to distract from DOJ-gate, to distract from NSA-gate, to distract from PRISM-gate, to distract from Benghazi-gate, to distract from EA-gate, to justify declaration of a National Emergency, to justify suspension of the Constitution, to justify a gun-grab, to have a small civil unrest to brutally put down to discourage a much lager uprising of the entire population the government could not hope to deal with. Too much corporate media focus has been put on this one case, with far to much emphasis on the racial overtones. Too many suspicious Facebook posts and tweets keep selling the idea that a Zimmerman acquittal will or should trigger mass riots.
Opinions are going to vary about the verdict – this is evident in the surveys across the internet, where people are divided almost evenly between guilty, not guilty, and undecided. The beauty of a somewhat “free” country is that we are all allowed to make our own decisions on how we feel about these things. Unfortunately, that freedom is circumvented when we are being manipulated, brainwashed, and sold an opinion via popular culture. When the Ministry of Propaganda writes a script, it’s awfully difficult to veer too far from the “information” that is blanketing the media.
Whatever your thoughts happen to be about the verdict, be sure that your opinion is your own. When you recognize the tactics that are being used to change the public mindset, it helps to immunize you against the propaganda techniques that are being put forth.
Are you a puppet? It’s not actually YOUR opinion if someone else does your thinking for you.
The Democrat propaganda, hate and race baiting machine goes full throttle. Don't fall for these vile, anti-American, insane clowns...
Trayvon Martin was NO 'sweet child'...and this is but one piece of evidence NOT allowed into evidence by the biased Judge Nelson.
Skittles and iced tea = Purple Drank. Skittles and ice tea also makes something called "LEAN" which is a street way of getting high.
People go to the ER all the time asking for the cough syrup Promethiazine and they get it, go home, and make this stuff. Since you can't buy Sudaphed off the shelf people (dopers) are using their Medicaid cards to obtain the ingredients to make drugs, and remember both the Skittles and the iced tea were UNOPENED when the police arrived on the scene.
That's why 'the sweet child' (gag) didn't want Zimmerman following him to where he was supposedly staying.
The kid was a doper plain and simple...remember the pics of the pot plants and him blowing joint smoke on his cell phone and that he was suspended from school for dope. His dope use should have been allowed into evidence, especially since TCP was found in his system at autopsy.
The fix was in against George Zimmerman from day one...major grounds for appeal if he is found guilty of anything.
Laws? Sure. Liberal Attorney Generals will happily defend laws that they agree with. If there’s a law compelling religious groups to offer abortion on demand, they will bleed for it. But if there’s a law that they disagree with… good night and good luck.
Pennsylvania’s attorney general, Kathleen Kane, said on Thursday that she would not defend the state against a lawsuit to overturn a ban on same-sex marriage.
Ms. Kane, a Democrat, traveled from Harrisburg, where the suit was filed in Federal District Court on Tuesday, to make her announcement at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. She quoted from Pennsylvania’s Constitution forbidding discrimination “against any person” and said that “disparate treatment” based on race, religion and ethnic origin were no longer tolerated, and “it is now the time here in Pennsylvania to end another wave of discrimination.”
“I looked at it this way, the governor’s going to be O.K.,” she said. She wondered, she added, who would represent “the Daves and Robbies, who represents the Emilys and Amys?”
“As attorney general,” she said, “I choose you.”
Who is going to represent all the gay rights defendants? Their laws. And the ACLU. Kane’s job is to represent the people of Pennsylvania. The repulsive Kane ran for Attorney General, yet also wants to function as a legislator, making up her own laws as she goes along, and treats her lawlessness as a campaign rally event.
If Kathleen Kane finds that her job violates her principles, she should resign it. But that kind of thing is for old-timey honorable folks. Politicians don’t resign anymore. Unless it’s as a ploy after a scandal. Instead they announce that they just won’t do their jobs… for the people.
Kane, a Hillary Clinton minion, raised nearly 6 million dollars to run for a job that she had no intention of doing, campaigning on a pledge to investigate Jerry Sandusky to score some points, and then turning around and preparing to use her non-work to run for Governor.
So Kathleen Kane is currently being paid $152,443 for a job she won’t do. Don’t the taxpayers of Pennsylvania deserve a refund?
