The Zimmerman Verdict is Still a Win for the Race-Baiting Left

The verdict is in and it appears that the jury did a better job of following the law than the judge or the prosecution did. And despite a few last minute stunts by the prosecution and judge, it’s about over.
It’s not inconceivable that Attorney Generic Eric Holder who helped kick this farce into motion could still bring Federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman. But possibly even Holder knows where to draw the line because the goals of the race-baiting left have been achieved.
Yes locking up Zimmerman would have been a nice prize, but Zimmerman, the beleaguered White-Hispanic Obama supporter, was just the means, not the end. The end was to make the case that the justice system is racist and needs more control and supervision by Fed.gov. And that mission has been accomplished. Zimmerman’s acquittal, if anything, aids it.
As I wrote a number of times, this was never about the real George Zimmerman and the real Trayvon Martin. This was about the race-baiting left’s use of race for political power. They don’t have Zimmerman in jail, but they weren’t out to just put him in jail. They were out to put all of us in jail.
The jury’s verdict reminded them of the limits of their power and the power of the media, but such humbling moments never last. They just redouble their efforts.
It’s what totalitarians always do.
The real goal of the Zimmerman case was to promote racial division. Mission accomplished.
It was to warn locals that the Federal government would be more active than ever in stepping in. Mission accomplished.
It was to pave the way for the next wave of legislation. Mission accomplished.
