African-American Lynch Mob

Is anybody else out there as sick and tired as I am of lynch mob racists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (vide: Tawana Brawley, the Duke Lacrosse kids) who don the mantel of the “civil rights” movement to indict non-blacks in advance of the facts, and incite racial rage against them? Yet that is exactly what they – and scores of black leaders — are doing to an Hispanic individual named George Zimmerman. Along with a cast of thousands, they are holding him guilty of racism before the fact, justifying a hatred, as inflammatory as the hatred once spewed by southern crackers against blacks.

There is no evidence whatsoever that race was a defining factor in the tragic death of Trayvon Martin. Notwithstanding the absence of evidence, this unhappy incident is now the occasion for school shut-downs, mass marches and public death threats by enraged African Americans, displaying behaviors reminiscent of the lynch mobs that were once a scourge of their parents’ generation in a now rejected past.

The facts surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin have not been investigated and are still uncertain. But the lynch mob has delivered its verdict: George Zimmerman is guilty of a race crime; Trayvon Martin was killed because he was black. “Trayvon is the Emmett Till of our generation,” said one mob leader, referring to the 12-year-old who was murdered by white racists in 1955 for whistling at a white woman.

There is no verifiable evidence for this fact-challenged, inflammatory, claim. According to the lone eyewitness to come forward, it was Martin who attacked Zimmerman and was on top of him and beating him to a pulp when the fatal shot was fired. The fact that Zimmerman’s face was bloody when the police arrived, is an apparent corroboration of this version of the event. Is this what happened? We don’t know. But it is a claim that should get tested in a court of law. Unfortunately to a lynch mob the evidence is irrelevant, the conclusion foregone.

If the demonstrators were merely calling for an investigation that would be proper. But the cries for retribution, and the accusations of racism, which dominate the public demonstrations are not. And that goes for the statement of the President as well. Not willing to be separated from his racial constituency, even when they are behaving badly, Obama has lent his prestige to the insinuation that the crime was inspired by the victim’s race. Otherwise there would be no reason to mention the fact that “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” Everyone who has a son should be concerned by the loss of this life. By making it racial, the president is establishing guilt without evidence, and indicting non-black America as well.

The display of racial outrage over this case is a national disgrace. It is a throwback to the past and a shameful repudiation of the values the civil rights movement once stood for but apparently does no longer.

    Seems that Obama's taking a lesson from Sharpton's book, and trying to give us Freddy's Fashion Mart on a national scale. So much for uniting the nation and healing old wounds.

    • Jim_C

      How so?

  • kongMing

    They are criminals in search of a motive.

    Masters enslave more people today than any other time in history. Sharpton, with his past history of cocaine trafficing, is at best an enabler of this horror show.

  • crackerjack

    The problem here is not race, it is Floridas "stand your ground" law. Nobody challenged Zimmermann. Zimmermann challenged and then killed a citizen. He had no evidence whatsoever of foul play, was neither molested, attacked , nor was he on his own property.

    If this is within the law, every citizen of Florida can be challenged by anyone, anywhere, at anytime, and if he does not comply, is free to be shot dead in "self defence".

    This law is an armed assault on freedom and if upheld, its high time for all men of goodwill to get out of Florida real pronto, because the law of the land is certainly not on their side.

    • pt113

      No crackerjack the law is in place to protect people from criminals. Why should anyone let themselves be subjected to violence and not expect to have the right to fight back with any means available? Once again, you were not there. You do not know the facts. You are not the judge. And God willing if it comes down to it, you will not be on the jury. Go sell crazy somewhere else.

    • Alvaro

      "Nobody challenged Zimmermann. Zimmermann challenged and then killed a citizen. He had no evidence whatsoever of foul play, was neither molested, attacked , nor was he on his own property."

      So nice to see that you hsve everything figured out. Maybe you could tell the police everything you know, so they won't have to waste time with unimportant things, like an investigation.

    • OldCrow

      Have you seen the police reports that have been published? Evidently not!

      Martin had Zimmerman on the ground and was beating on him when Zimmerman shot. This is corroborated by witnesses, Zimmerman's injuries and physical evidence. That is why Zimmerman was not arrested.

      If it had been me the thug would never have gotten close enough to knock me down. Stand your ground? How can you retreat when your attacker has knocked you to the ground? Zimmerman waited too long to shoot!

      The black race prostitutes will lie to advance themselves, the MSM will lie to advance the Democrat/Communist cause. This was not an innocent kid as the MSM wants you to believe with those pictures. He was a 6'2" football player.

        Exactly as they did with Rodney King – and you KNOW that they're hoping and praying to their secret,Satanic symbols, that that very thing repeats itself.

      • Questions

        The photos of Trayvon Martin are of those of him as a 13-year-old. There's a reason for that: Supporters want to the public to see him as a darling helpless boy, a mere "child" with (sniff!) a bag of Skittles in his pocket. The truth is he was a thug only months away from turning 18 who stood about 6'3", 200+ lbs. And in classic black form, "disrespected," and proceeded to viciously beat Zimmerman.

        In other words, Martin was the criminal. And Zimmerman was a victim who fought back. The difference between this case and countless ones like it is that the white was armed and decided to fight back. Trayvon Martin wasn't counting on either. He guessed wrong. Tough luck, fella.

        As for Zimmerman, he is our generation's Bernard Goetz. I'd like to pin a medal on him.

        • Steve

          Although I do agree that it appears that Zimmerman may not have been motivated by race, if he followed Trayvon against the advice of the 911 operator, and was stalking him, Trayvon may have been the one doing the defending, and Zimmerman had to protect himself from a well desrved beat down. Nobody, from what I have seen has suggested that Trayvon was engaged in any criminal activity until he started pounding Zimmerman. Zimmerman, as an overzelous cop wanna be quite easily could have threatened Martin. Unfortunately the police blew their chance to get it right the first time, and now it will be decided in the court of public opinion.

          • Joe

            Steve, that is not correct. Not following "advice" is not only not a crime, it was his neighborhood. And he was on Neighborhood Watch. That is what they DO.

            The fact that the kid was the one who actually escalated into a physical altercation, by sucker punching Zimmerman when he had already broken contact and was on his way back to his vehicle; and then jumped on him and began to pound his head into the sidewalk, seems to be lost on those who simply want to see Zimmerman as … how did you put it… "an overzelous cop wanna be".

            It becomes what I call a fuzzy math problem that ignores the reality of the numbers.

            4 + 4 = 7 NO IT DOES NOT!

            I agree! But the problem is NOT 4 + 4. It is 4 + 4 + 2 + 6 – 9 = 7

            From the information available, the ONLY one who was doing anything ILLEGAL was the boy. Not by walking in the neighborhood. Not for being black or wearing a hoodie. But for assaulting another person without any legal justification.

            Folks may not LIKE that Zimmerman followed the boy but that too was NOT ILLEGAL.

            Folks may not LIKE that Zimmerman got out of his car and approached the boy and asked him what he was doing, but that too was NOT ILLEGAL.

            So because they don't LIKE what Zimmerman did, it makes the ILLEGAL action of the boy ok? What type of twisted logic is that? Zimmerman DESERVED a beat down? REALLY? And at what point was the "deserved beat down" going to stop? He was yelling for help and NONE came. And the boy was clearly NOT stopping when he had the clear position of advantage and Zimmerman was NOT a threat.

            Also, how about the boy simply walking away when Zimmerman walked back to his vehicle? At that point the confrontation was OVER. No threats of physical violence were made up to that point. No gun was brandished. NOTHING illegal had taken place by EITHER one of them.

            But once Zimmerman turned and returned to his vehicle the BOY confronted HIM, and then sucker punched him and began to beat him. How anyone can JUSTIFY that because Zimmerman followed and then confronted a strange person in HIS neighborhood is beyond me. It shows a clear disconnect from logical, rational, and HONEST thinking.

          • JackHampton

            Zimmerman after being told he did not need to follow him was returning to his car when he was assaulted

      Hey moron read the facts of the case not found on msnbc. The teenager was 6 ft 2 and was not the kid shown in photos from years ago. He was beating the hell out of Zimmerman. This is exactly what the law was designed to do. Protect the innocent. Good riddance to the thug.

        I have a physique like Trayvon Martin's, but I sure ain't no thug. Why was George Zimmerman out of his vehicle if not to confront Martin. Unless Martin pulled him out, that will be hard for him to explain.

        • JackHampton

          It is not hard to explain at all he asked him what he was doing. How do you explain the thug assaulting the hispanic man?

    No Jerkerjack. Stand Your Ground is intended for defense against criminals inside the home, not on the street.

    • crackerjack

      Go get informed before making a fool ofyourself in public .

      Floridas stupid arms lobby l"law" extended the home "Castle Doctrine" to outside the home. Anywhere, anytime, anyone. Legal experts called it a "roving murder bubble". Want to murder someone? Get it done in Florida, then claim self defense. Without contrary evidence, you go free.

      Martin was next to his home, unarmed and being molested by stranger. Why didn't the law protect him? And why is his killer under protection of the law? This isn't a law, this is license to kill for all those lunatic vigilantes, retarded gun swingers and unsecure macho loosers out there.

      • kentatwater

        Legal experts called it a "roving murder bubble".

        Yeah. They are the same brand of "experts" who called Fettuccine Alfredo a "heart attack on a plate." IOW, they are degreed demagogues.

        Without contrary evidence, you go free.

        Yeah, that innocent until proven guilty thing is really a cramp in the authoritarian's style.

        molested

        Interesting choice of words:

        from Wiktionary:

        molest (third-person singular simple present molests, present participle molesting, simple past and past participle molested)

        1) To physically abuse, (occasionaly also means sexually especially regarding a minor )
        2) To annoy intentionally
        3) To disturb or tamper with.

        One clearly does not apply.

        Two does not apply, unless you are privy to Zimmerman's intentions. Please share.

        Three may apply. So, I could say that the was molested by a lady asking me for directions, last week.

        Why didn't the law protect him?

        The law tends to look askance at savage beatings.

        And why is his killer under protection of the law?

        A precipitous question. He hasn't even been tried, yet.

        This isn't a law

        Oh, but it is.

        this is license to kill for all those lunatic vigilantes, retarded gun swingers and unsecure macho loosers out there.

        You're a bigot.

    • OldCrow

      Castle Doctrine is inside your house, stand your ground allows you to meet an attack with deadly force outside your home. In this case stand your ground does not apply because the thug was beating the shooter when he was shot. That is simple self defense.

      • crackerjack

        The "thug"? How does walking down your own neighbourhood qualify you as a thug? And was Zimmermann doing molesting and harrasing free citizens in the first place? Going by Florida's law, Martin should have shot Zimmermann on the spot for following him in the dark with a car and threatening him.

        This whole affair shows how stupid and incoherent this so calld "law" is. Anyone planning a murder should get it done in Florida and then claim defense. The law is on his side.

        • kentatwater

          How does walking down your own neighbourhood qualify you as a thug?

          Walking doesn't. Beat the cr*p out of someone who's lying on his back, bloodied, does.

          • crackerjack

            Martin was only making use of his right to "stand your ground". He had been followed by a stranger in a car, threatenend and molested. If he had been armed, he would have been well within Florida law to have shot Zimmermann.

            Or does this "stand your ground" contraption apply to the attacker but not the attacked?

          • JackHampton

            What an absurd comment you need to wait till the investigation is finished. But there is nothing that indicates that the hispanic man had touched martin in any fashion. You are so desperate that facts mean nothing to you.

        • Wyatt Trash

          How does walking down your own neighbourhood qualify you as a thug?

          It doesn't. But referring to yourself as a 'Made N***A" does.

          • horseman

            Don’t forget suspension from school for possession on marijuana, apparent evidence of drug dealing, and evidence suggesting Martin attacked a bus driver the previous week. I think all that put together earns the “thug” label.

            Sure, he doesn't have the cop-assaulting label that Zimmerman has–but he must have been on his way!

      Oh I beg to differ. When your head is getting beat against concrete, which could kill you, you have the right to use lethal force anywhere you can legally carry a gun. Inside and outside of your home. Don't believe you have your concealed carry permit.

    • JackHampton

      No Anthony you are thinking of the Castle doctine you stupid jerk. Stand your ground can be applied to just about any location. Ir means if you are attacked you no longer just have to run you can defend yourself if your life is in danger. You are the dullard jerk

    Our President sees befitting to put his two cents into the issue, same as he jumped off the deep end
    in that Cambridge, Mass. incident involving one of his professors and the police, only to realize he
    did pot his big foot and then not knowing what to do to backpedal the whole thing….????

    But what of a national tragedy is this incident and not that of the three people killed by black hoodlums
    in Gonzales, Louisiana or the white boy chased by two black bullies, sprayed with a flammable liquid
    and set on fire ???

    Then it is OK for blacks to attack and kill any other people but GOD forbid anything like the opposite
    happens, because not only the RABNLE ROUSER No.. 1 "Rev" SHARPTON but even even our
    president will take issue on the matter…which sadly shows us clearly where this country is headed to
    RIGHT ????

  • jacob

    What I would like to learn, is what was done to SHARPTON after pulling the same stunt in New York,
    at the case of the African-American girl he claimed had been kidnapped by the police and later
    appearing stating she had been all that time making out with her boyfriend….

    What was the outcome of this matter ??

    I remember sending some money for the officer's defense fund….

    Was he sued and got off with a slap on the wrist or not even that much due to political correctness ????

    Shouldn't a competent government dept. get on his case or we are we looking at another case of
    "professional courtesy" as in he sharks joke ?????

    Zimmerman is a half Hisapanic and half white. He may or may not be guilty of wrongly killing Traylon Martin, that remains to be seen. If he is guilty he should be appropriately punished. But where is the protest by black people and white and other progressive people against the numerous violent crimes/attacks/murders committed by black/mixed race people in recent years. Black people commit a disproportionate amount of violent crimes in the U.S. yet the mainstream media rarely talks about this fact in an honest and open way. Instead we have mass hysteria over a single half white on black killing where we are not even sure of the facts yet.

    .I live in the next town over from where this took place. It is tragic of course. Turning it into a "racial" incident is ridiculous. Saying the "stand your ground" law is the problem is equally ridiculous. And yes, the law applies on the street as well. On the surface, since Zimmerman pursued Martin after the dispatcher encouraged him to back off, it appears this law cannot apply. But we don't know this as yet do we? I can't stand that so many behave as they possess "righteous indignation" simply because they are black. It is a disgrace that this should have happened at all. BUT…to turn it into racism is degrading to us all. These charlatans that claim to represent (Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton) have been at this hustle for over 4 decades and what has the black community to show for it? They are no better off than they would be without them but Jackson and Sharpton have become rich off of it. You feel any "righteous indignation" over being used by these frauds after all these years?

    THERE ANOTHER SIDE TO THIS STORY

    that no one seems to have touched on. It concerns Obama's seeming insensitivity to the unemployment crisis bedeviling black youth. Perhaps you recall over the summer when Maxine "Republicans are devils" Waters criticized Obama during one of his bus tours for not venturing into poor black neighborhoods. That betrayed a growing rift between Obama and congressional black leaders; it told us that disillusionment is setting in because Black Americans are worse off today than when Obama took office. Indeed, with black unemployment at 15.9% (the highest in the nation), and a catastrophic rate of 40% among black teenagers (see), Obama fears (and rightly so) that come Election Day many (too many) dispirited black voters will stay home. "We're getting tired," said Waters of waiting for Obama to do something for "our people who are hurting." And still nothing is being done as black unemployment remains at Depression levels and the hurt grows.

    The promise of Obama enriching poor blacks through massive redistribution of wealth and free stuff just hasn't materialized, and indigent blacks and their leaders are p*ssed. Then along comes the sensational Tray Martin shooting with a desperate, self-serving Chicagoland politician (his hopes of reelection fading) seizing upon it as a chance to mend things with the folks. 'I'll show them that I'm anything but indifferent to the plight of black youth' says Obama to himself. 'I won't just speak out against the shooting, I'll emotionalize it and make it personal. I'll get as close to the victim as possible by saying that he could've been a family member; better still, that he could have been my son and that I feel with a parent's intensity the pain and suffering of losing him.' Oh what a feeling, sensitive, compassionate man Obama is when it suits him politically. And how pathetic.

    The problem is nnot the black people protesting. The problem is the lack of white protesters when one of ours is injured such as happened recently in kansas city when a 13 year old had gas thrown on him and set afire by two blacks while they yelled racial insults at him. We are too afraid to be called racist and afraid we might be listed as racist on the splc website. Of course this is not being charged as a hate crime. Only white devils can be racists. That is why a Hispanic Zimmerman must be called white.

    Why do the mass media including fox keep,using an old photo of the black kid making him appear as a defenseless little child?

    • Juxtaposed

      Guest, you ask about the photo and you're right it's just propaganda Zimmerman picture = evil, Martin picture = innocent. This type of propaganda and brainwashing goes on all the time much of it is so subtle the conscious mind doesn't perceive it but the subconscious does. It's all over in the pop culture, in movies, music and TV. Once you know what to look for it jumps right out at you.

      Everything carries a message recognizing it is the key, an ignorant population is easier to manipulate and control emotionally and intellectually, why do you think the government schools have been dumbing us down and they insist on having a monopoly on it especially in black urban communities.

  • BLJ

    Why would someone be wearing a hoodie in Florida? I also heard that a witness saw Martin straddling Zimmerman. Calling Martin another "Emmet Till" is assinine as well.

    'm going to go off the reservation here and disagree with the president remarking on it at all until the facts are in.
    Unfortunately, for Zero, most of them already are!
    According to an eye witness, whose statement was taken at the time of the incident, Zimmerman was on his back with this "kid" beating the bejeezus out of him while sitting on his chest!
    How he got into that position is of no consequence. He did what he thought he had to to survive and that was by shooting his assailant in the chest while he was on top of him. That final bit of evidence, the hoodie with the powder burns on it, has yet to be revealed but, it is already known that the "kid" was not shot from a distance!
    That being the case, Zero and anyone that agrees with him is an idiot.
    They are expressing grief (saying Martin could look like his son, for God's sake!) for a guy that couldn't control his temper enough to assure a guy that asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood, that he was just going to the store for a bag of Skittles!
    What I see is a troubled black "kid" (he had been suspended from school, people!) with a chip on his shoulder, getting pissed off because someone questioned him and decided to beat the snot out of him!
    Did Zimmerman get too close and, perhaps, sound a little belligerent when he asked Martin what he was doing there? I don't doubt that either! It would be natural to be a little testy when questioning the motives of someone who looks like he was casing houses.
    I also have a sneaking suspicion that's exactly what Martin was doing!
    If Zero wants to express sympathy, how about he direct it to the 90 year old white couple in Tulsa. The woman raped (raped!!) and beaten to death and the husband of 65 years beaten and still critical. And who was the perpetrator? A 20 something black man!
    That's who deserves sympathy! Not a kid killed just before his criminal career started!!!

      Your comments bring up another thing that has troubled me. Baring insanity, or the use of certain drugs such as PCP, it is extremely unlikely Trayvon would have approached Zimmerman so closely, as to knock him down and beat him, had Zimmerman's gun been visible and/or drawn. It is also unlikely, that Zimmerman would have voluntarily come so close to Trayvon, so as to allow direct physical contact, without his gun drawn, due to the broad disparity in build.

      Unless they both stumbled into each other accidently, with one unsuccessfully trying to evade the other, it is very unlikely the gun was out. Given that Trayvon loomed over Zimmerman, and Trayvon was no doubt confident in his physical prowess, to argue that Trayvon was in fear of his life, absent evidence to the contrary, is politicals, not a quest for answers or justice.

      Amen brother! Couldn't have said it better.

    • anywoman

      Gonna go out on a limb and surmise that as a weekend tutor, Zimmerman knows how to talk to "kids", even kids who struggle. This boy shares the responsibility of what happened. Zimmerman was volunteering, 9 homes in the gated community he was monitoring had been robbed in last year or so He didn't recognize this "kid" (he was visiting, didn't live there). An accident is just that: something not planned. Spare me the phony racist outrage. But more to the point, read Alinsky and you'll see that this is on of Rahm Emmanual's "don't waste it" crises. If you are white and don't own a weapon yet, you're late!

      Maybe. Obviously we need to hear more details.

      But put yourself in the teenager's shoes. You are walking around a neighborhood talking on your cell phone, some adult starts following you. I'd be pretty creeped out. Do I run? Do I ignore him? Do I fight?

      Overzealous neighborhood watch guy vs. creeped out teenager. Tragedy ensues.

        Obviously, we need to hear more details? Then you close with that?

        I latest I've read, was that Zimmerman was in the process of entering his vehicle, and was approached by Trayvon, who initiated violent physical contact.

  • buffman11

    When is the prez, the Justice League, and the New Black Panther party going to speak up about the Miss. State Univ. killing? Where is the mass media buzz on this slaying? And BTW, just where the heck is Africa-America? I cannot seem to find it on the map anywhere, anyone, anyone, Buehler??

  • Reason_For_Life

    Facts are not a consideration in this case. For a hundred years people have been told to "follow their heart" and ignore "cold, unfeeling" facts. The facts surrounding the conflict between Martin and Zimmerman are irrelevant. People just "feel" that Zimmerman is guilty of murder and feeling is enough.

    Zimmerman now has a price on his head. It is likely that he will be murdered and that his murderer will go free, acquitted by a "jury of his peers" just as the killer of Yankel Rosenbaum was.

    It is still possible that facts will prevail. Let us hope that justice follows wherever the facts lead.

    All those protestors in hoodies look like the KKK to me. They act the same also.

    People wearing hoodies are innocent:

    This incident happened about a month ago.

    These rent a mobs have got to have a stop put on them. I know they will cry racism, but they cry wolf all of the time. It's lost it's luster.

  • tedder

    When the truth about this incident is confirmed and Martin is proven to be a thug, then Black America needs to have it's collective nose rubbed in it and never allowed to lived down it's disgraceful behavior, forced to deal with their own degenerate sub-subculture of Hating-Whiting which mostly likely is the cause of the confrontation.

    Holy crap David is right. I emailed him just now about how I was banned from dailykos for posting about this case.

    Wow great minds think alike

  • Myk999

    In the mean time, hundreds of blacks have been murder by other blacks with no media outcry. This is yet another case of 'guilty until proven innocent'. Where was the outcry in the Newson-Christenson murders?

  • RiverFred

    I subscribe to MOVEON.ORG just to see what liberals say. Yesterday I received a full page condemnation letter against Zimmerman, it was if they were trying to start a race riot without mentioning Zimmerman's side of the story. If this was white on white do you think this would even make the news?

    • Jim_C

      Well, yes, because a kid was involved. But would it be this big? I doubt it.

  • Jim_C

    I am thinking you have a case here of an overzealous neighborhood watch guy who put himself in a position he should not have been in, and a confused and frightened teenager that ended in tragedy.

    Because Martin was a kid, and of color you have a case tailor made for the news and the water cooler.

    • tagalog

      Or maybe we had a case of Zimmerman thinking, "there's a guy with his hoodie up, gawking around the neighborhood; I'll follow him and call 911," with a teenage thug thinking, "that white honky bitch is following me around, he's dissing me, I'm calling him on that."

      • Jim_C

        Is there a significant difference? Truly?

  • tagalog

    Judging from the photograph at the beginning of this article, Al Sharpton is REALLY, REALLY good at acting outraged.

    Of course, he's had lots and lots of practice.

    DH has boldly addressed a serious national crisis situtation in America… a cultural war with tentacles tied to various areas of society: black hatred against whites, gay and lesbian hate agaisnt normalcy, secularists hate for anything Judeo-Christian, socialists/Marxists hatred for conservatives/constitution/rule of law, the "entitled" poor hating the perceived rich, etc..
    Normal people with true American values all the way around are facing the front of all those anti-God values from all directions and starting to live in fear of losing our Constitutional freedom and liberty. Normal people who are starting to prepare and train themselves for survival are coined as "crazy" by the very government which has already shown their anti-freedom/liberty colors at "Ruby Ridge" and "Waco, Tx" incidents murdering innocent people for their normal beliefs. People we must prepare for our own survival because our enemy is our own government and some of different race and beliefs who just want to destroy us.
