The President Has to Make it Worse

"The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin."
Statement by President Obama, July 14

"Calm reflection." 

That phrase stands out. 

"Calm reflection." 


He wants us to honor the Martins' request for "calm reflection." 

I see. 

So where was our Great Leader when the story first broke? Was he engaging in "calm reflection"? Not all. He was telling us that Trayvon Martin reminded him of the son he never had. His Department of Justice's Community Services Unit, in the best tradition of the President's own Chicago community organizer background, was whipping up the crowds, getting them to demand Zimmerman's head. There was political pressure brought to bear on Florida authorities who caved. His NBC and MSNBC echo chambers edited Zimmerman's 911 call to make him into another Sheriff "Bull" Connor. Other well-trained media robots, including CNN and the broadcast networks, along with the Congressional Black Caucus, busied themselves describing the Sanford, Florida shooting as a white on black targeted killing. They ran pictures of Martin when he was a sweet-looking 12-year-old, not the six-foot, 17-year-old street thug and wanna-be gangster he had become. His purchase of "Skittles" and "ice tea" became some sort of exoneration for a kid who had a history of violence, theft, expulsion from school, and who bragged about drug use and his ability to knock out somebody with one punch to the nose. The pudgy Zimmerman, at least one-quarter black himself, with a Latina mother, and no history of racial conflict in his ethnically quite diverse neighborhood, was made out to be a seething white racist who followed and gunned down Martin "like a dog." The same media morons who argued that Elizabeth Warren was a Native American, now insisted that George Zimmerman was "white."

Whenever I think my disgust limit has been reached with this misadministration, a new limit is established. The DOJ minions who could not bother to prosecute voter intimidation by Black Panther thugs, apparently now seek to put together a Federal case against Zimmerman alleging civil rights violations. If I were Zimmerman, I would grab my passport ASAP, and head to my Peruvian relatives for a good, long stay. Never mind Snowden, Zimmerman is the one in need of asylum.

Now this abomination of a President wants us to devote ourselves to gun control in honor of Martin. Yes, Martin would have been very happy if Zimmerman had not had a gun; Zimmerman, of course, would be dead or severely injured, but that doesn't seem to matter. 

Obama asks us to respect the verdict. Fair enough. He, however, needs to set the example. What the jurors effectively told us was that the "gun violence" was justified; it was an act of self-defense. Zimmerman defended himself. No law made on earth or in heaven required him to allow himself to get beaten to a pulp or to death by a thug.

Perhaps our President should devote himself to calling for a rejection of the "gangsta" culture that enthralls so much of our youth, especially our black youth. He should call on rappers, music moguls, video game makers, and his buddies in Hollywood to stop glorifying social pathologies, such as that admittedly lucrative "gangsta" culture. He should ask black community leaders to take a long hard look at the state of the black community and its rampant murder rates. 

Black men have almost no reason to fear being killed by whites; they, however, should keep looking over their shoulders when in a predominantly black part of town such as in Chicago or Detroit. Blacks, about 13% of the US population, are roughly 47% of the nation's homicide victims, and commit over 52% of those homicides. The way to "honor" Martin is for the black community to reject the race hustlers such as Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton, and go back to the deeply conservative roots of their culture. Until that happens, more Trayvon Martins will die on the streets of America, and not at the hands of whites.

    So now that he's been acquitted the same DOJ that whipped up anti-Zimmerman sentiment is going to look into bringing civil rights charges against Zimmerman. Perhaps this is the most transparent administration ever!

    1. Peru. I hope George Zimmerman is buying that ticket right now.

  2. DOJ will be quick to make sure he doesn't travel. You see, this is *important*, not like, say, national security secrets on the loose in China.

    Honestly, I'm a little saddened by the verdict. I don't believe Z was checking street signs. Other than that, I believe the details of his story (ie, he followed M, M got the drop on him, and M was beating him with life threatening force when he fired.)

    However, while Z was apparently not legally barred from doing the various components of what he did, the overall effect was just really negligent. I believe he *primarily* followed M because he had a gun, and felt the associated assurance of being able to handle whatever trouble might occur, regardless of whether innocents might get hurt/killed. My feeling is that he wasn't being properly respectful of the power he wielded in his sidearm.

    I also believe that M did not interact with Z as though Z had a gun. Everybody in our society should *assume* that someone who appears to be looking for trouble is armed.

    My impression is that M and Z both treated life as though it were cheap. M got his comeuppance. Z will hopefully be haunted by memories of the kid his reckless "batmanhood" managed to get killed, even if he had no intention of killing anybody that night.

    None of this justifies our usual attempts at bypassing double jeopardy protections.

    I agree that Peru may be the best place for Z, both considering our government's usual attempt to retry *and* for his personal safety.

    1. Since Martin was looking for trouble, you believe Zimmerman should have believed Martin was armed? Should Zimmerman have shot Martin immediately?

    2. In direct answer, yes, Z should have assumed M was armed, and no, Z definitely should not have shot him on that assumption (I think this should be obvious).

      My impression is that if Z thought M had a gun, he would've let the police handle the situation and not followed him (presuming his claim of innocently looking at street signs to be the only fabrication).

  3. When the President of the United States sics his dogs on you (the ones he has chosen not to eat) and not yet reined them in, you best get your butt out of this country. And not look back.

    Lot's wife.


  4. I had only the jury to depend on. I hadn't the leisure to watch all (if, indeed, it was available) and I figured at the times I was able to watch, it was kinda like watching only the final score of some ballgame - meaning; all I saw was the "highlights" (if that) the only time I really got a good grip was very near the end when ... in the 'lesser includeds

    Child Abuse!

    I realized only then was the persecu, er, I mean the uhm, prosecution clutching at straws.

    And now I see Diplomad's Never mind Snowden, Zimmerman is the one in need of asylum. I'm pretty certain I'm ... well ... I'm certain this whole thing wasn't right.

    "Just" ... maybe. "Right"? ... No.

    There is a difference and unfortunately only we who have grown up accustomed [qualified] to the Right Justice we in the United States are afforded [can] know it.

    'Can' not 'Do' - some refuse 'Do' however much effort's required for Ignorance.

    I have some sympathy for the 'willfully ignorant' - I have none for the 'effortlessly ignorant.'


  5. In 2011, Hoang Nguyen, 72, had been in the United States for just three years, having migrated from his native Vietnam to be near his children, locating in south St. Louis. He was already in English classes, preparing to take his citizenship test at the first opportunity.

    Walking home from a neighborhood Vietnamese market, along with his wife, Nguyen was attacked by four black teens. One teen punched Nguyen in the face, knocking him down to the ground. Another punched him in the stomach after he hit the ground. when the police arrived, they found Nguyen with a nose that had been bleeding, lying in a pool of his own vomit, and he was dead. His wife, also punched in the face, suffered a broken eye socket.

    The coroner determined that Mr. Nguyen had died from a single punch to the head. ONE PUNCH. His murderer was 18 at the time.

    Why? Were the teens wanting to rob the Nguyens? Nope. They were playing a game that has become popular with inner city black teens called "Knock Out." The purpose of the game: choose a victim at random, approach them and, with one punch, knock them out.

    Mr. and Mrs. Nguyen are not the only people ever attacked in the game of "Knock Out." There is the very recent (this month)case of the death of Joshua Chellew of Mableton, Georgia. Chellew, and a friend were at a gas station when four black teens attacked him for no apparent reason. Trying to get away from the teens, Chellew headed in the direction of the street where he was pushed into oncoming traffic, after having been knocked down by his teenaged assailants, and run over by a car due to the driver not being able to stop in time.
    In July, 2012, Defino Mora, 62 year old father of 12, was murdered in Chicago by three black teenagers, ages 16, 17 and 18, in the same Knock Out game.

    But has this useless violence been addressed by our DoJ or even by any [self-proclaimed] black leaders? No, and it won't be. You see, the George Zimmerman case was not because Hispanics, all over the U.S., are attacking unsuspecting black teenagers. It is because having someone other than another black killing blacks is very, very rare in the number of black people murdered and opened up an opportunity for the poverty pimps of our nation to scream "racism" in order to fill their bank account coffers.

    Who can forget the horrible murders of Channon Christian and Christoper Newsome in 2007. Five young blacks tortured, raped and murdered two young (21 & 23) white people. Those five were not even charged on a federal "hate" crime due to the DA saying that since the plaintiffs were dead, he had no proof that they were killed because they were white. That rule has never seemed to stop the federal government before, when it was white on black crime.

    One of the contributions that Obama seems to have brought to his office is a spiked rise in black on white crime. Of course, the lapdog press will not report on this, as it would show that Obama is a detriment to racial harmony in this country.

    I have no doubt that the DoJ, under the corrupt Eric Holder, will bring federal charges against George Zimmerman. Is it time to fly my American flag upside down signaling distress yet?


    1. Interesting video here. A black observer speaking at a Trayvon Martin rally sums up his impressions:

    2. " Is it time to fly my American flag upside down signaling distress yet?"

      I have been asking that very question for some time now. I am approx. Dip's age, and took early retirement, am living off savings so as not to contribute ONE THIN DIME to the feral coffers. I'm so pissed off I can hardly see straight any more...

  6. I'll tell you about these blithering so-called "anti-racists".

    Press them on the head why the application of Marx's "scientific socialism" didn't unleashed the "unprecedented productive forces" the learned Dr. Marx promised, and you'll learn about how backwards the peoples on whom it was tried were. In short, it's the fault of the poor Slavic Uentermenschen and Primitive Asiatics--and that the white middle class of Cuba (to say nothing of enough Afro-Cubans to bring Santeria over here) ran away, leaving poor Fidel, Raul, and Che with nothing but the Black and Mulatto masses. And these folks have the chutzpah to call the rest of us "racist!"

    As for where Zimmerman fits on the "color code", he has my sympathies. If white people want to call my Eurasian sons white and Far Eastern folks want to call them Asian/Pacific, it's fine with me either way. But, due to bad experiences with school officials over my sons' racial classification, I admit I was angry about how the Left so quickly sought to racialize the Zimmerman case.

    1. Kepha?


    2. " If white people want to call my Eurasian sons white and Far Eastern folks want to call them Asian/Pacific, it's fine with me either way. " As long as they are addressed as Mr.-

  7. I would have expected Obama to at least mention George Zimmerman in his statement. But, he did not.

  9. Upon reading the local paper this morning, I just about went ballistic. They quoted the execrable Sharpton (I do not and will not EVER stick a "Rev." in front of his name) to the effect that "it's not safe for a black child to walk to the store in this country". Could they, would they, clarify that this "child" was 17 years old and taller than the guy he fought with? Nooooooo. In another article, a different person was quoted as saying "If the white guy had just followed the dispatcher's instructions and stayed in the truck..." Again, could the paper explain to its readers that the ACTUAL WORDS of the dispatcher were "We don't need you to do that" (ie follow Trayvon)? Still the answer is noooooo.

    The print and network media had a PERFECT opportunity, during the trial and after the verdict, to print the relevant 911 transcripts, to publish actual-age pictures of Trayvon, and to show Geroge Zimmerman's battered face. They could have defused racial tensions by explaining some of the "misunderstandings that a complex case like this one can generate" (in other words, walk back some of the Black Grievance Industry's more egregious claims).

    But they chose not to. THEY CHOSE TO PERPETUATE THE "AMERICA IS RACIST" NARRATIVE, despite the damage they are doing to our country by pushing such lies.

    The press betrays us, the Administration betrays us, the GOP betrays us..... I see all this evil stuff happening and have NO IDEA what to do to fix things. Trying to vote "good people" into office every two or four years is totally inadequate -- the "good guys" get corrupted by the system in a matter of months, and have the rest of their terms of office to "do mischief" before elections come round again. It's just overwhelming! (This may be an intended side effect of the chaos caused by the current MalAdministration: so that when "they" --Sir Golf-A-Lot's puppet-masters-- promote a Strong-Leader type candidate to Fix The Nation's Problems, we'll all sigh with relief and vote -just the once, of course- for totalitarianism-under-a-benign-name.)

  10. Pinning one's hopes for rational dialogue from either our elected leaders or those self-appointed ones is folly. The situation has exceeded that sort of discourse.

    The only reasonable act now is to prepare for the worst; protecting one's family and friends is a higher duty than political sycophancy.
