Zimmerman Acquittal: The Fringe Left Reacts with Threats to Kill Zimmerman

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 2:03 pm

Last night I hopped on Twitter to see the reaction to the Zimmerman verdict, and was not particularly surprised to see a number of death threats and other threats of violence. Here are a few of them:

Here is a blowup of the picture he had:

This fella has since protected his tweets. But he did get this positive feedback from someone else eager to go kill Zimmerman:

This nice gentleman has established a Facebook page where he is soliciting pledges to kill Zimmerman:

Here is the Facebook page, which I assume will be deleted in due course, so I am providing this screenshot:

In case there is any doubt about what is meant here, the user helpfully clarified:

Screen Shot 2013-07-14 at 1.47.30 PM

Many of the tweets have been deleted, whether by the users or by Twitter, so we are having to make do with screenshots. If any of the embeds above disappear, let me know, and I will replace them with screenshots.

You might wonder why I am giving these people attention. The main reason is because I would like law enforcement to give them attention. Several of these tweets strike me as true threats that should lead to an arrest.

Anyone interested in learning these people’s true identities and reporting them to law enforcement, go ahead. I have little faith that law enforcement will do anything, because law enforcement doesn’t seem to care about anything that happens on the Internet unless the President himself is being threatened. But if anyone decides to make a report, I am preserving some of the evidence right here.

In addition, the comments are revealing about our culture. There were many, many more tweets along the lines of “I hope Zimmerman will be killed” — such as this tweet:

Screen Shot 2013-07-14 at 1.45.06 PM

Or this:

Screen Shot 2013-07-14 at 1.46.08 PM

I couldn’t possibly embed or screenshot them all.

Why are people reacting like this? Well, in large part, it’s because many people are just terrible people. But there is one factor contributing to the way people feel: Big Media.

Let’s be thankful that, so far, Big Media’s rank distortions about this case have not resulted in riots, but just a lot of threats on Twitter and Facebook.

. . . at least so far.

UPDATE: Twitchy has an excellent and distressing roundup of threats to kill Zimmerman jurors.

UPDATE x2: Twitchy has also collected several other threats to kill Zimmerman here and here. There are more reactions to the charming tweet by “Gunzo” in the latter link.

  6. Right here, this nastiness, this is what killed Trayvon. The idea that you should behave this way when you see something you don’t like. George did nothing that justified the attack from Trayvon. That attack ended with Trayvon dead, and frankly I think Trayvon was headed in that direction eventually no matter what George did that night.

    Those out there who want to ‘honor Trayvon’ should start having that brave, honest talk about race that Eric Holder won’t have. There is an epidemic in this country where a lot of young men are taught to behave in ways that lead to fatherless kids, violence, drugs, and death.

  9. This MAY have been mentioned on another thread, but Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White issued a Tweet in which he encouraged the Zimmerman jurors to commit suicide.

    Of course, he later issued an apology, which will be accepted – no questions asked – by the media.

  11. Corey seemed to be saying the jury failed in not using ‘common sense’ with some specious evidence (not to mention that there was a lot of much stronger evidence that went the other way).

    I’ve seen more attacks on the jury than I’m comfortable with, and I was surprised to hear that the protests were very loud and close to where the jury deliberated. I guess Florida law enforcement was OK with that kind of thing.

    If the jurors are smart they will try to stay under the radar.

  17. Can you imagine if it was the other way around, and it was a black man who had killed a white boy in self-defense, and some “Red Necks” were twitting pictures like the above of themselves – openly threatening his life with semi-automatic weapons, calling for his death, and asking someone to kill him??? You’d have Eric Holder and the DOJ, the FBI, and even the CIA, pouncing on them and arresting them,and Janet Napolitano and the NSA hunting them down as “Domestic Terrorists”! But since it is blacks doing it in Zimmerman’s case, I guess that makes it all right! Nothing to see here folks…

  21. how about some spicy hummus on creepy ass crackers, Mr Feets?

    i’m w*rking up my own recipe from a couple different sources and it’s pretty good, according to relatively unbiased sources.

    Comment by redc1c4 (403dff) — 7/14/2013 @ 2:51 pm

  22. Juxtapose these statements against the tweets heading this thread.

    “Trayvon Benjamin Martin is dead because he and other black boys and men like him are not seen as a person, but a problem,” the Rev. Dr. Raphael G. Warnock, the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, told his congregation on Sunday morning. In an interview afterward, Dr. Warnock put the killing in the context of a month in which the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to, in effect, gut the Voting Rights Act.

    “The last few weeks have been pivotal to the consciousness of black America,” he said. “Black men have been stigmatized. We’ve become a stigmatized mascot for social misery and the canvas on which America projects all of its problems.”

    (From today’s NYT article linked on the previous thread.)

  23. I find it deliciously ironic that the person calling for Zimmerman’s lynching that twitted: “Some times you have to take the law into your own hands…” is using the same twisted rationale that lay behind the burning crosses in Jim Crow days….

    Comment by Althor (b81d49) — 7/14/2013 @ 2:56 pm

  24. TraMar’s birth mother Sybrina Fulton has already applied for a number of copyrights related to her son’s name and the circumstances of his death. Before you use creepy ass crackers it might be wise to make sure there isn’t any liability attached.

  26. The self-stigmatizing Rev. speaks, as they can’t help themselves. Black boys and men wouldn’t be seen as a problem if they didn’t think they had the right to attack people because they don’t like the way someone is looking at them.

    Which is why TM is dead. Anyone who’s trying to bust open someone’s skull on a sidewalk is a problem. GZ dealt with his in the only way he could. As the use of force expert Mr. Root testified, he had no other options.

    Comment by Steve57 (996952) — 7/14/2013 @ 3:00 pm

  27. any one who isn’t white that uses the phrase “creepy ass cracker” is just blowing a racist dog whistle and is guilty of a hate crime.

  30. “Trayvon Benjamin Martin is dead because he and other black boys and men like him are not seen as a person, but a problem,” the Rev. Dr. Raphael G. Warnock, the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, told his congregation on Sunday morning.

    What I meant by my previous post, “black boys and men…think they ha[ve] a right to attack people because they don’t like the way someone is looking at them,” is that it’s people like this Rev. who convinces them they do. Just like the mayor of Atlanta who publicly states a black kid puts his life on the line by walking to the corner store.

    That has nothing to do with why TM was shot, and why GZ was acquitted. TM attacked GZ and GZ argued self-defense. The jury found the evidence supported GZ, not these BS narratives like this reverend’s or more precisely the state.

    Because atrocious authority figures like this reverend, and the Atlanta mayor, refuse to acknowledge the facts and hold people like TM accountable, then they’re fanning the flames that will produce more TMs. Because according to them TM did nothing wrong.

    So why wouldn’t black boys and men think they have the right to attack white people who look at them wrong?

    Comment by Steve57 (996952) — 7/14/2013 @ 3:11 pm

  31. Face it, racists, if Trayvon Martin had been white—or at least a white black—you know that George Zimmerman would never have fired his weapon !

    Comment by Elephant Stone (6a6f37) — 7/14/2013 @ 3:11 pm

  32. if GZ & TM had both been black, this whole thing would never have made the news…

  34. I think there’s an aspect of this that has been missed; the decline of (unconstitutional) gun control laws seems to me to mean that we are going to see more poor, non-WASP persons carrying guns for self-protection. Which in turn means that we are going to see more cases of young, poor, brown males of just the age to think they are invincible getting shot in self defense by people who don’t really fit the White Oppressor / Black Oppressed narrative.

    In light of that I find the stories of charities aimed at getting (for example) shotguns into the hands of citizens who cannot otherwise afford them VERY interesting.

  37. if the Colonials had picked the damn cotton their damn selves,

    But Britain has a different story and history from that of the US — and, in turn, different demographic. Yet it too is in the midst of policies and cultural influences that are undermining its socio-economic foundation, including so-called “Euro-sclerosis.” It too is showing fractures that are not too dissimilar from that of America’s Nidal-Hasan-ization.

    The human trait that has led to modern-day liberalism knows no boundaries, affects all peoples. And, regrettably, when I look at the long-term history of nations like France or Argentina (places whose populace is predominantly of Euro descent), I don’t think the disease of modern-day liberalism ever is going to go away.

    That’s not how the NAACP and the ACLU see it. First, anyone who can be made to fit the White oppressor/Black victim narrative will be drafted into it against their will, no matter how badly they don’t fit it.

    Second, about those unconstitutional gun laws:

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/07/14/3500052_p3/federal-case-against-zimmerman.html

    Federal case against Zimmerman would face obstacles

    …The ACLU of Florida also expressed disappointment and frustration over the acquittal verdict.

    “The tragedy in this case is that the needless death of a 17-year old is yet another example of the deadly consequences that come from seeing the world through racial stereotypes,” ACLU executive director Howard Simon said in a statement.

    “The confrontation that resulted in Trayvon Martin’s death occurred because, in a neighborhood that had experienced recent burglaries, George Zimmerman saw a young black male as a threat to his community,” Simon said.

    “The deadly confrontation between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin is a horrific reminder of the toxic mix of an armed citizenry and a society that still makes too many judgments filtered through racial stereotypes.”

    It doesn’t matter what the Constitution says. We’re too racist to own guns.

    I don’t think this aspect of the story has been missed. GZ getting acquitted doesn’t change the White Oppressor/Black Oppressed narrative. No amount of evidence ever will.

    GZ’s race didn’t change the narrative. The fact that SYG laws had nothing to do with this didn’t change the narrative. The fact that GZ was acquitted on centuries old self-defense legal principles won’t change the narrative. And self-defense shootings that don’t fit the narrative won’t change the narrative because they won’t enter into the one-way lecture the grievance mongers will call a conversation.

    All we can hope to do is to reduce the number of people living inside the bubble that buys into the narrative into impotence. Unless Obama imports a new population susceptible to the narrative.

  48. It’s worth noting that members of the black community never show this rage against characters like Chester Turner and Lonnie Franklin (The Grim Sleeper Suspect). Turner was convicted of killing over a dozen black women in South LA and Franklin is waiting trial for a similar string of murders of black females in the same area.

    Why not?

    Gun manufacturers and the NRA pay lip service to stopping these massacres, but they sure do profit from them.

  56. So, the ACLU predictably blames racial stereotyping for the incident as predisposing Zimmerman to view Trayvon Martin as a threat to his community. Really?

    A hooded stranger of any color loitering within a gated communiy where a series of burglaries have recently taken place was indeed a possible “threat” to Zimmerman’s community. That was the reason why he had volunteered to patrol the neighborhood in the first place! Trayvon Martin in fact was not only a suspicious possible threat to Zimmerman’s community, but that he became a threat to Zimmerman’s life as well!

    Of course, that darn “white hispanic” (?) Zimmerman should have let Trayvon beat him to death and crack his skull on the concrete. To defend himself, as he did, from the “downtrodden” black “victim” on top of him pommelling him, was simply “racist”!

    I know some people who rent apartments in some pretty crappy areas. They’re fenced and gated.

    I can just see the MFM calling them “gated communities.”

    I’ve been to the Retreat at Twin Lakes website even before the news of the shooting had time to impact home prices. They were never expensive. But the MFM talks up “gated community” as if they’re talking about Tingles Matthew’s exclusive lily white Chevy Chase, Maryland, neighborhood.

    The one he lied about living in when he falsely claimed to live in “mostly black” D.C.

    He should have. He should have gotten all his property back, including his CCW permit, his gun, and his passport. As the judge stated he had no more business with the court. But then while he got his gun back they didn’t give him back his ammo.

    I don’t know why. That’s according to Andrew Branca who was blogging last night at L.I. He said the defense had already confirmed he’d get his gun back with the judge. He doesn’t know why they wouldn’t give him back the ammo they confiscated though, either.

  70. Patterico & Co, I think it’s important to understand (as I am only BEGINNING to understand) that the fringe left isn’t actually FRINGE anymore.

    Now, some of you may vaguely probably not remember, I’m in the publishing industry and Twitter is my “workplace,” so to speak. I have other milieux that have nothing to do with publishing. And one thing is clear: Intelligent people are buying this bullshit hook, line, and sinker, and propagating it at an astronomical rate. I know practicing lawyers who STILL think Stand Your Ground was a factor. I know educated people who have no clue why Obamacare is bad.

    You should see my feed, half libertarian types and half everybody else.

    The libertarian half is talking to itself like it thinks it’s making a difference and persuading hearts and minds to right thinking, or arguing with people and thinking eventually that person will come around, and never EVER seeing just HOW MANY PEOPLE are buying and selling this bullshit.

    As for everybody else, from where I sit, I see no FRINGE. I see fields of hammers and sickles, their holders welcoming their new overlords.

  75. I find it deliciously ironic that the person calling for Zimmerman’s lynching that twitted: “Some times you have to take the law into your own hands…” is using the same twisted rationale that lay behind the burning crosses in Jim Crow days….

    That’s not “ironic”, it’s predictable. The rationale is the same because they’ve been trained to “think” the same way. Those people are to blame for everything, your failures are their fault.

    I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s pushed by the same political party. The Democrats learned one way to win — race baiting the ignorant — and all they’ve done is change who they target.

    It was easier to bold the tiny bit that can be called speculation. Everything else is a pure out-and-out lie.

    The only part that can possibly pass muster as speculation is the part where you wonder if those people sending out those tweets on behalf of the NRA so they and gun manufacturers can profit from hysteria are being paid by the NRA to do so or not.

I was thinking of the type of trial outcomes that are most likely to trigger riots, and any verdict that upsets the Travyon-would-be-my-son-if-I-had-a-son crowd is, in fact, the flip side of the OJ verdict.

    Well, it didn’t take that long. There was a riot in Oakland on Saturday night. But really, how much lead time do you need to fire up a race riot in Oakland.

    And then tonight in LA:

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-trayvon-martin-protesters-block-freeway-clash-with-lapd-20130714,0,2907898.story?track=rss&dlvrit=649324

    Trayvon Martin protesters block freeway, clash with LAPD

    I think the alternate headline should have been “People stupid enough to believe what they see on MSNBC or read in rags like LAT lash out in anger when reality strikes”

    It seems the editors slipped up:

    After a protest Saturday night in Oakland turned violent, Sunday’s protests were peaceful.

    According to the Democrat/MFM complex propaganda stylebook it should be “A protest Saturday night in Oakland turned violent was mostly peaceful…”

    http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Protests-in-S-F-Oakland-over-Zimmerman-verdict-4665088.php

    Protesters listened to speeches and carried signs with such messages as “We are all Trayvon Martin” and “Zimmerman: the people say guilty.” The rallies were spirited and mostly peaceful, though a small group of people in Oakland – many hiding their faces with bandannas – kicked and punched an Oakland Tribune photographer and also attacked a KTVU-TV cameraman at about 10:30 p.m.

    Apparently unlike the LAT the SF Chronicle follows the Democrat/MFM complex propaganda stylebook to the letter.

    Comment by Steve57 (996952) — 7/15/2013 @ 12:14 am

  124. “Spirited and mostly peaceful” means that in addition to just a small band of revelers beating up whitey the rest of the crowd refrained from lighting fires, slashing tires, and breaking windows.

    The crowd of “spirited and mostly peaceful civil rights activists” restricted their more physical expressions of free speech to throwing rocks at the cops.

  125. It is sad that there are, allegedly, people out there who are willing to tweet this. The second worst part is that we are giving them even more attention by essentially retweeting these messages.

  144. #139, Perry continues to twist truth into hate. Wagonwheel/Gramps2/Rebus is simply not who he is, they’re masks for Perry the plagiarist, liar, stalker, hater, reactionary boor, and sub-standard human bean.

  146. Set me up? You’re delusional. Point out where I intimated in any way, anywhere, at any time what you just attributed to me. You can’t because it is a lie. You continue to disgust me because you never comment honestly. And never have, under any name. You make it difficult to pity you. I’ll have to work on it.

    It’s interesting you made that particular lie though.

  147. He’s a man devoid of reason, lacking in basic human compassion

    Researchers (as far as I know) have never really greatly delved into the way that biases affecting a person’s type of political orientation and amount of common sense are innate, intrinsic, probably coded into a person’s brain in a manner similar to the way his hair or eye color is. However, I do remember reading one study several years ago on identical twins, which theorized that a person’s politics could, in fact, be an inherent feature of that person.

    Of course, many people’s sense of good or bad, right or wrong — and their perceptions of conservative or liberal — will change throughout their lifetime, so ideology isn’t an acquired, unmovable trait in all cases. But extremists probably are that way for genetic reasons, and if they’re leftists at an old age, they probably were that way when quite young too. So a ton of bricks could fall on their head, and they’d still be deficient in fundamental logic and basic common sense.

  149. Ian g @ 123 made a profound statement:

    It is sad that there are, allegedly, people out there who are willing to tweet this. The second worst part is that we are giving them even more attention by essentially retweeting these messages. The third worst part is that you all don’t really get that there are people on the right who are arming themselves against the gum’ment, essentially doing exactly the same thing as those from whom you are creating this example.

    It all boils down to the fact that we Americans must oppose extremism on all sides with rational debate, discussion, and decision making.

    Incidents like this racial profiling and Congressional obstruction of democratic processes only inflame and poison the atmosphere.

    Comment by Gramps2 (6ea724) — 7/15/2013 @ 7:05 am

  150. I meant I was setting you up for a major sanctimonious stand… claiming a correlation between crime rates and political party, as if liberal idealism involves murder. I wouldn’t put it past some people to throw that sentiment out there.

    Clearly more personal animosity from ropelight as he digs himself a deeper hole. And note well, there is no evidence provided. This is neither the place or time for such a personal vendetta.

    Comment by Gramps2 (6ea724) — 7/15/2013 @ 7:09 am

  152. It is what you do, Tye. Sorry if it makes you uncomfortable. If people disagree with you they are racist, gay haters, etc. it is who you are. It is what you do.

    And you and Perry are adding another identity to the trash can. Enough of this lying, dishonesty, and mendacity fro you 2. You flaunt the hosts rules, and if you manage to be enough of a jackhole to piss off Stash, then your time has come to another close. We won’t say goodbye, because we know you are both obsessive stalkers, and will be back. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

    Comment by Rob Crawford (c55962) — 7/15/2013 @ 7:27 am

  158. According to the Democrat/MFM complex propaganda stylebook it should be “A protest Saturday night in Oakland turned violent was mostly peaceful…”

    I guess it’s a good thing that such segments of the MSM at least didn’t insert their favorite words of “unexpected” or “unexpectedly” (certainly when the economic news they’re reporting isn’t all milk and honey). Such as “there was unexpected violence at the rally” or “the crowd became unexpectedly violent.”

    Comment by Mark (c7cc04) — 7/15/2013 @ 7:35 am

  159. I don’t believe I have called anyone a racist. If I called somebody a gay hater it is because they dropped a rather homophobic comment.

  165. Buh-bye Tye

    The tweets are exactly what I expected. The race-baiters got their people all fired up over an imaginary scandal, and now the civil left is marching In the streets, burning things, throwing tampons, staging mob rule like they did in Wisconsin and Texas, and apologizing for the rapes and violence and lawlessness of Occupy. Actually, since the verdict, I am surprised at how little actual violence there has been. Bravo.

  171. The tweets are disgusting. The tweets are nauseating. The tweets are harmful to a civil society and possibly incite others to violence even if the originating twit is posing for effect and mostly spouting off. But because stupid morons continually and increasingly feel completely comfortable using twitter to out themselves both criminally and anti-socially means they should not be ignored. The tweeters of these ugly tweets are, in fact, representing part of the American fabric of our time too. Their presence and mindset should be out in the open for all to see. The shocking horrible tweets are original, unedited, real time, first person reporting of a “viewpoint” and “attitude” in ways you’ll almost never see from the print and broadcast media which increasingly present nothing even resembling balanced or honest reporting of well, much of anything except sports.

  182. Is the Ian G. who calls someone else ‘homophobic’ on this thread (comment 158) the same Ian G. who wrote this to Gus on the previous thread (link)?

    “You can see my nose? I suppose I’m not shocked that you stalk and stare at men.”

    That had the same hash Ian G. was using on this thread up through comment 85, though for whatever reason he has since changed to a different one. Looks like Ian G. needs to get the beam out of his own eye before he criticizes others for homophobia.

    Comment by Dr. Weevil (40c627) — 7/15/2013 @ 10:19 am

  183. Ian G’s believes Alterman’s piece is damning while it is yet another in a long line of standard left-wing attack pieces using cherry picked quotes to demonstrate racism of the right because they hear racial dog whistles in everything, even if it the truth and quoting somebody’s own words against them represents an unfair racial attack, but calling a conservative a racist, hey that’s fair 24/7.

    Comment by daleyrocks (bf33e9) — 7/15/2013 @ 10:25 am

  185. Weevil, it is not surprising that Ian G expressed homophobic remarks. In my experience, those from the left who are going on about racism and homophobia are projecting.

    Certainly that has been a huge factor with the Zimmerman case, where pundits moan about the race of jurors, ignore that the prosecutor was caught selecting jurors on the basis of race, mention the race of the defendant over and over, and then complain about racism they have no evidence for. It’s projection.

  187. I’m not sure Angela Corey thinks that way. I believe that she is sincere in her maliciousness. It is in her character and she found the job which helps her fullfill herself.

  190. In my experience, people named ‘Gus’ are invariably male, so if someone says that a Gus “stalks and stares at men”, he would inevitably be accusing a man of being both gay and a criminal. Everyone here can see you’re a bigot, “Ian G.”, and the fact that you don’t realize it makes you a stupid bigot – also a hypocrite, since you accuse others of the homophobia you exhibit yourself.

    Comment by Dr. Weevil (40c627) — 7/15/2013 @ 10:33 am

  193. The same racist Attorney General that minimized the case against Black Panther thugs caught on video tape dressed in black uniforms and wielding clubs to intimidate voters at the polls in Philadelphia, is the same racist Attorney General now on national TV pushing renewed investigations of George Zimmerman.

    He’s the same racist Attorney General who refused to cooperate in the Congressional investigation of Fast-n-Furious and got himself voted in contempt of Congress. The same AG who can’t quite bring himself to investigate the murder of Americans in Benghazi, or IRS for White House inspired political corruption, or the associated cover-ups, but he can rush right out to give sanctimonious, racist, and self-serving pronouncements designed to inflame already whipped-up racists to even greater levels of destruction and violence.

    Eric Holder isn’t upholding the rule of law, he’s inciting mob violence.

    Correct. Ian G., I don’t think those who continuously personally attack their political opposition, do not realize how weak they reveal themselves to be. I would cite Dana as an example of a political opponent who always steps up to the debate. He should be considered a model for others to follow.

    I think Eric Holder planned to quit before it looked like any successor would have confirmation trouble. It is said Janet Napolitano only resigned when she learned she would not be nominated as Attorney General.

    I tend to think that what Harry Reid is planning today is because Eric Holder intends to quit. It won’t help his successor get confirmed.

    If Eric Holder does quit that alone will improve things.

  200. See Ian G’s comment at #52, his first I believe on this thread, where he blames threats to kill GZ on the National Rifle Association:

    I wonder if the NRA is paying these people to tweet these things. They have a history of profiting off of hysteria, and fueling it…

    SPQR called him out at #54:

    Ian G., more of your utter horse manure. You will brazenly lie about anything, won’t you? The NRA paying people to post death threats.

    Shameless does not begin to describe the depths of vileness.

    Then, at #55 Ian G. defended himself:

    It wasn’t a lie. It wasn’t a statement. Just speculation.

    Ian G. is entitled to parse his own words and others are entitled to point to the actual record and to expose the deceptive and self-serving nature of a serial liar and two-face dipshit.

  211. Thanks, SPQR. I’ve been around, no longer blogging but commenting on the web. You’ve seen me here a lot more lately partly because it’s the second-best place to discuss the Zimmerman trial – I opened an account at Legal Insurrection just a couple of days ago and have been commenting there, too – partly because I can no longer comment at Althouse, which used to take up a lot of my time.

    Comment by Dr. Weevil (40c627) — 7/15/2013 @ 12:11 pm

  212. And, since Perry’s back crying crocodile tears about personal attacks, let’s have a little look at Perry’s record on this thread. In response to my comment on the left’s hateful tweets (which is the topic) at #131:

    Behold the racist political left’s public tantrum in response to their failure to pervert justice and condemn a White Hispanic for the imaginary hate crime of defending himself against a violent street thug on drugs who just happened to look like our imperial President.

    Perry, in response and posing as Gramps2, launched a personal attack at #134:

    Looks like ropelight managed to concentrate a lot of hatred into one sentence. Brilliant!

    Now, at #195 after much back and forth Perry the sanctimonious dimwit actually attempts to pay lip service in defense of fellow liar and serial troll, Ian G. but instead sullies himself with a steaming heap of (convoluted) hypocricy, by attacking those who continuously personally attack their political opposition while he himself is actually engaged in a personal attack. It’s who he is, it’s what he does, and it’s about all he’s got:

    …I don’t think those who continuously personally attack their political opposition, do not realize how weak they reveal themselves to be.

    These 2 laughable baboons (and their fellow travelers) can’t help but reveal themselves for who and what they are: liars and racists, and pretty piss poor ones at that.

  214. The so called “Mainstream Media” has lost no opportunity, all throughout this fracas, to demonize, excrutinize, and vilify George Zimmerman at every turn, even coining the absurd oxymoron “White Hispanic” to describe him, in order to ascribe racist motives to him.

    Now it turns out they not only purposely white-washed Trayvon Martin’s image by showing pictures of him when he was twelve years old, portraying him as a cuddly, innocent, poor black kid, victim of a broken home, stigmatized by societal inequalities, who was “racially profiled” by a racist” George Zimmerman; but turned a blind eye to, and failed to report, that Martin was a juvenile delinquent in trouble at school, whose tweets show he was using and dealing in marihuana (for medicinal purposes only, I am sure), that he had sold guns, had gotten himself a “Gangsta’s” gold tooth, was deep into the whole “Hood” black sub-culture crap,and had reputation for violence according to his girlfriend! So much for the”Hoodie”he was wearing.

    What is even more appalling is the fact that Judge Nelson’s “Kangaroo Court” during the Zimmerman trial – obviously in bed with the prosecution and the politicians in trying ensure a conviction to aquiesce the perpetually aggrieved black community, the anti-gun left, and the liberals, ruled said evidence “inadmissable in court”; lest it would deflate the victimization and lionizing of Martin, and jurors would come to the conclusion, as they inevitably did anyway,that, fearing for his life, George Zimmerman was well justified in shooting the punk!

  215. First, MSM propagandists heard his name, George Zimmerman, and never thought for a nano-second they didn’t have a genuine white guy on the hook. But, when it turned out he was Hispanic the racist media had no option but to pretend he was more white than Hispanic. So the NY Times tagged GZ as a member of a hated class of racial scapegoats: a White Hispanic.

    Once MSM had abandoned objectivity and bought into teh narrative they voluntarily responded to the racists’ Siren’s call and willingly guzzled the spiked Kool-Aid then competed with each other to broadcast long out-of-date pictures of a youthful TraMar on TV to convince low-information zombies the aggressively violent young drugged out thug was really an angelic adolescent boy innocently walking home from a trip to the local (drug supermarket) 711 when he was set upon for no reason at all by a gun toting wannabe cop out for a thrill kill.

    Once MSM had teh narrative set in concrete, once the dye was cast, Obama’s racist minions made sure local Florida authorities toed the line, abandoned their professional and personal integrity, and ignored standard constitutional protections long established to shield individual Americans from the heavy-hand of government persecution.

    Even with a corrupt Special Prosecutor and a blatantly biased so-called Judge they still couldn’t manage to persuade a jury to convict an innocent man.

    Now, Obama and his corrupt racist lapdogs are out to find a way, any way, to string-up the White Hispanic they couldn’t railroad. They’re out for blood and they don’t care who gets hurt or how many Constitutional Rights they violate so long as a White Hispanic pays for the crime of exposing the racists in the Obama Administration.

  216. I’m sure that when the first reports came over the wire, they just “knew” that George Zimmerman was a George Lincoln Rockwell knock-off, just had to be.
    Now, they have a bit of trouble squaring the circle of his actual ethnic background, and that he’s Blacker than Plessy.

  217. here were no forst reports over the wire. It took several weeks for this to become known. This happened on Sunday February 26, 2012, and it didn’t even start to become known outside Sanford till about Friday, March 16, 2012, and in the subsequent week it got a lot more publicity.

    It started maybe with a change.org petition.

    This (or maybe something similar) was probably the first information the major media had about this:

  218. The petition was launched on March 8, 2012.

    At first Trayvon Martin was not identified. It took awhile for the father to even find out he was dead. He came back home from his date and Trayvon wasn’t there and he didn’t answer his cellphone. He thought maybe he had gone to the movies. So that started it.

    Then he went to the wrong lawyers.

  221. Angela Corey was interviwed by CBS News. They tried to get her to say she’d made a mistake by overcharging.

    I think she said something about Zimmerman going out into the night armed, looking for I forgot what..

    The truth is, nothing but murder would have fit the myth or urban legend that Trayvon Martin’s family and lawyers had created, and she had to charge murder two.

  222. Pigford is also a ack of lies. But only for courts.

    There are 5 Pigfords:

    1) Original Pigford under the Clinton Administration.

    2) Late Pigford

    3) Indian Pigford

    4) Hispanic Pigford

    and

    5) Pigford for Women.

  223. “What is this country coming to, when a’Brother’ can’t even go to the local 7-11 to deal some drugs, without some Hispanic “Cracker” cop-wanna-be tailing you!”

    Comment by Eric Holder's Thoughts (b81d49) — 7/15/2013 @ 5:21 pm

  224. Ths could be closer to the truth than you think. except that…he wasn’t trying to buy drugs (marijuana) at a 7-11. Drug dealers don’t have stores with signs. That created the whole problem, as he couldn’t find the address.

  225. 202.SPQR – Perry seems quite oblivious of the natural consequences of his, and the Left’s, incessant race-baiting.

    Comment by JD (b63a52) — 7/15/2013 @ 11:42 am

    True. People of his ilk walk around saying despicable lies about this case such as Zimmerman killed TM because TM committed the crime of walking through a gated community while black (Rep. Hank Johnson, D[mentia]-Guam tipping over), or for walking to the corner store while black (Atlanta mayor).

    As if merely walking around while black caused GZ to spontaneously break-up in a broken nose, two black eyes, and scalp lacerations.

    Perry et al spread lies about what happened, i.e. TM did nothing that would justify GZ’s response, and then wonder why easily enraged idiots would want to kill GZ when the jury clears the guy?

    Comment by Steve57 (996952) — 7/15/2013 @ 5:29 pm

  226. Steve57 – I think mostly GZ was worried about TM injuring his hands beating on his head and his aim was probably just a little bit off in what was supposed to be a warning shot in between punches to the face, but nobody tells me nothing.

  227. Clearly Juan Antonio Gonzalez only reacted this way because he was living every child’s nightmare. Being followed by a strange man. He’s suffered enough. I certainly hope the wise prosecutors realize the tender child should only get a slap on the wrist, perhaps a supervised group home at most, where he can recover from this nightmarish experience.

    http://www.elpasotimes.com/tablehome/ci_21708260/el-paso-police-officer-dies-from-sept-25

    An El Paso police officer allegedly knocked unconscious and then beaten violently by a 17-year-old died Friday morning at University Medical Center, police said.

    Officer Jonathan Molina, 29, who did tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Marine Corps, died a little more than nine days after suffering a fractured skull, internal head injuries and facial fractures.

    In any case it’s clearly an example of how a judicious individual defends himself. One must wait until one has suffered sufficient injury to warrant the use of deadly force before resorting to it.

    Clearly Officer Molina waited until he was justified to use deadly force in this case, while George Zimmerman acted too hastily based upon his non-life threatening injuries.

    Comment by Steve57 (8d5173) — 7/15/2013 @ 5:59 pm

  228. None of the above is meant as a slight against Officer Molina. His death was a tragedy. TM’s not quite the same.

    I engage in sarcasm to vent my disgust with the anti-self defense, pro-black racists who would have preferred this result for GZ rather than stopping TM before it got to this point.

    And those jokers who think TM was a child.

    He was the same age as this guy. Should Juan Antonio Gonzalez be charged as a child, TM fans?

    Comment by Steve57 (8d5173) — 7/15/2013 @ 6:04 pm

  229. I think that was a very helpful link, Steve57.
    It makes one very angry, though.

  230. Steve57 – Do you have a picture of Juan Antonio Gonzalez, the suspect, as a 12 year-old?

    Comment by daleyrocks (bf33e9) — 7/15/2013 @ 9:05 pm

  231. https://www.facebook.com/KGZ123, the Kill Zimmerman facebook page, is still active. It’s been at least a week, and I’ve seen this page publicized numerous times. I’ve even seen screenshots of emails where facebook says this page does not meet the ‘incites violence’ objection some have made.

    In other words, this liberal company has all but endorsed the lynching of someone acquitted by trial.

    Unfortunately, no. He’s “undocumented.” And by that I mean he’s got documents, they’re just forged. The kid he stole the SSN from looked like this at six.

    The good news is the Obama administration still thinks Mr. Gonzalez might still be eligible for amnesty under the DREAM act.
