By now you’ve heard the story of Trayvon Martin. You’ve probably seen the celebrities, members of Congress and other race-baiters donning hoodies in protest… demanding “justice”. The facts are still in dispute as to what happened the night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin. Was it self-defense? We don’t know. Was it a racially-motivated crime? We don’t know. Did Martin attack Zimmerman first? We don’t know.
But we do know that the President of the United States, whose former Chief of Staff said, “You never want a serious crisis go to waste” has joined an ever-growing bandwagon of racism and hate fueled by a liberal desire to turn every news story into one about race to advance their agenda. We also know the media is willing to carry the water for this bogus meme by publishing 5-year old pictures of Martin to portray this “poor kid” as an innocent 12 year old:
…rather than the 17-year old that he actually was:
Even though the facts now coming forth, including Zimmerman being a Hispanic (though CNN blurs the line for good measure when it suits them, referring to him as a “white hispanic” - think they’d do that if he’d been the victim?), being a registered Democrat (not an evil Republican) and Martin’s school suspension for drug possession and social media presence that seems to promote gang affiliation paint a slightly different picture, the racism train has left the station and this movement of hoodie-wearing protesters thinks they’ve got a nifty campaign message to convince people to re-elect a black man… simply based on color.
So who are the racists?
Certainly not the 13-year old white boy in Kansas City who was chased down like an animal, doused with gasoline and set on fire by a couple of older black kids who shouted, “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.”
Nope, those were just disenfranchised kids who finally stood up against the system… or something that sounds noble like that.
And those 6 black guys that beat a white guy at Applebees that investigators say “may” have been a hate crime? Just relieving some stress, yo.
UPDATE: And there you have it, folks. THIS is what “Trayvon” means to Democrats…
Democratic National Committee member Pat Cotham promoted a “Hoodie Rally” that she said took place at Marshall Park in Charlotte, N.C. at 6 p.m. on Thursday. “Hoodie Rally at Marshall Park at 6 pm today,” Cotham tweeted. “Crowd building, people wearing shirts in honor of Trayvon Martin.”
According to Cotham’s Twitter account, “Hoodie Rally” attendees were “registering to vote” on the scene.
Given the Democrats’ history, I’m sure Trayvon will even cast a ballot or two in November as well.
UPDATE: Oops. Well there goes that nice “giant, racist white guy versus poor little black kid” narrative:
However it started, witnesses described to the 911 dispatcher what resulted: the neighborhood watch coordinator, 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds, and the visitor, 6-foot-1 and 150, wrestling on the ground.
Hardly the David vs. Goliath image the media wants you to imagine. Turns out Zimmerman was not a big, angry white guy hellbent on killing him a poor, innocent black kid. Instead, the two MEN were roughly the same size, give or take a couple of inches and about 10-20 pounds… despite the constant reports (which most media outlets are not rushing out to correct) that Zimmerman was 240-250 pounds and outweighed Martin by 100+ pounds.
