Skip to comments.Did the administration and the media shoot itself in the foot in the Trayvon Martin controversy?
Posted on 04/12/2012 10:20:11 PM PDT by Corky Boyd
Gateway Pundit carries an interview of Janet Murgula, President of La Raza, on Keeping it Real with Reverend Al Sharpton (guest host Andre Eggelletion). The gist of the conversation is Hispanics and blacks should join forces to address common problems. It is curious why such a conversation is taking place at the height of the Trayvon Martin issue.
It seems the controversy is now driving a wedge between Hispanics and blacks. Janet Murgula wouldn't have made her statement otherwise. The friction has long been there. Look at the street gangs of Los Angeles, look at the prison gangs. They are primarily Hispanics vs. blacks. Blacks blame Hispanics for their job losses and a host of other ills. Hispanics think blacks are being dealt better cards in the way of racial preferences.
When the Trayvon Martin case exploded, it was in the interest of the Obama campaign to make it a case of white vs. black. They wanted to gin up the base with the tried and true "the Klan is coming to git you" mentality. But it has turned into a renewal of long simmering Hispanic/black tensions -- this despite the sycophant medias best efforts to create anti-white animus by calling George Zimmerman a white Hispanic from a gated community and various other subterfuges.
Efforts by liberals, the media and black leaders for rush to judgment no doubt has Hispanics worried that this is but one more example of favoring blacks over them. Obama and the liberal media unintentionally walked into a trap....

They built the trap they walked into.
In the fever swamp to incite violence among black v. white, someone forgot to look at Z’s picture.
The monsters HOA and SUV and HOODIE were too irrestistable. Ha ha.
Yes, they attacked Hispanics.
Even lumped them in with Whites!
They’re a little bit late:
The media should be arrested. All of them. Jailed for life, no parole. If they had done their jobs honestly we wouldn’t be in the situation we find ourselves in today.
How much more twisting of facts could they do?
Do you mean how they portraied Tray as a Sunday School model citizen, when he was actually a drug selling burglar, or how they portrayed Geroge as a Killer Cracker Nazi intent on hunting down and slaying poor widdle skiddles?
As the facts have been coming out, all of a sudden the Hispanic community wised up to the Black lynch mob being stoked here. We know the state of race relations between Hispanics and Blacks is touchy at best. This intentionally fomented race hate from the White House could (and apparently has) started to boomerang. If it does, it could really shatter the Black-Hispanic coalition that Zer0’s depending upon for his election. I have a feeling this party's just beginning and it may just play out differently than originally planned.
Zimmerman is not a large man and he was measured at 5'8" at his booking.
We now know that Trayvon was at least 6 feet, maybe 6'2".
I think the way the news reported a young boy being shot by a man actually influenced the statements witnesses made.
There was at least one witness who saw the "larger man" on the "smaller boy" and I think assumed that the smaller boy must be Trayvon because that was how he was reported in the media description of what happened in her neighborhood.
Isn't it odd that in every other case with footage from a gas station or a 7-11 security camera, the news organizations seem to get hold of the footage and put it on the air?
Would showing Trayvon's visit to 7-11 show a large figure in a bulky hooded sweatshirt and perhaps baggy pants favored by the yutes these days?
The size of Trayvon in that footage would be inconsistent with the narrative given by the media.
Carney tried to wash zero’s hands of this pending bloodfest just today, imperially announcing that He and Him will have no further comment on the M v. Z case. Now we just have to wait for all the RAT media who are materially invested in the case to get the ‘cable’.
Should take about until Sunday before the ‘I said shut up and KILL this story’ command is understood and implemented.
That guard could almost pass as Mr Zimmerman’s twin.
I expect the Black race baiters will keep stoking the racial fires and this will fire-up the Hispanics because they will not abide a Zimmerman lynching by the Jacksons and Sharptons.
Whites are p.o.’ed too, but the Hispanics are the ones that could really be the problem for Holder's and Zer0’s people. This Z vs. M case will NOT go away because someone will keep stoking the fire and pouring gasoline on things.
Then there's AG Holder and his DoJ bunch of racists — will they get the message? We shall see, but I predict things will get far more interesting before this is over.
there is a pecking order of race in the USA.. Blacks are at the top.. hispanics and whites are somewhere below...
That was the plan.
6 year old Black ‘child’ (as they keep repeating) No.
Nothing happened. It was just two men fighting and one of them got killed. It happens every day of every week of every year in every country in the World. What the Hell?
This Tyron guy (or whoever the hell he is never cured cancer. He was far from a perfect model citizen. He was a criminal and a punk. He died like every criminal punk does. What is the big deal? Really?
This whole thing is about OBAMA and SHARPTON and the election. None of this has anything to do with ‘justice’ or what actually happened.
BTW, I hope you all know that Sharpton is personally responsible for murdering a Jew in Brooklyn. If the Jews were not such deluded Leftist freakin' stupid ass pussies, Sharpton would be in jail today.
Where was the JDL or the ACLU when the Sharpton riots were happening? Where were they when some poor boy walking home from school was stabbed by a BLACK guy, for no other reason than he was Jewish? Idiots. American idiot Jews are just determined to destroy themselves at any cost.
Look what you have done. Are you proud of yourselves. I do no understand how any of you can even look in a mirror.
Latinos are not afraid of Blacks. Period.
I am soooo tired of listening to whites speak with the fear that some of their black friends might hear what they are saying about the Zimmerman case......like their black friends give a damn about how their white friends will feel when they say anything....about anything!
Remember 13 percent of the population makes up 44 percent of the prison population, 400,000 attacks on whites by blacks a year, 14000 attacks on white women a year by blacks...and the beat (ings) goes on.
Yes they did.
They can stay there too.
With regard to the image above, it cannot be said that it happened somehow by accident. These are major news agencies with the best equipment and image manipulation skills on the planet. This is more deliberate manipulation of the news and associated images to create anger and promote a particular line of propaganda.
How many examples can you find of the MSM doctoring the news either by editing 911 calls, police video or official mugshots? Perhaps by their choice of language - E.G.→ Coining the phrase "White Hispanic"?
Perhaps editing the images of Trayvon to show him as a baby, young boy or even photoshopping him to make him look like a doe-eyed model?
Notice the normal location of the logo/chyron on the left video as compared to the Zimmerman video - where it was intentionally moved to cover where the undoctored video best shows evidence of a head injury.
Martin wanted to live the thug life.
Looks to me he was turning into one.
Occupational hazard, I guess.
Exactly. The media repeated white hispanic so many times, it became a double perjorative.
Yes the black guard and George are the same tone. I think it’s funny because the judge didn’t even recognize GZ standing right next to Mark OMara.
Many years ago a Cuban friend of mine patiently explained to me the “pecking order” of races in Miami:
Cubans, Colombians, Dominicans, Haitians, & at the bottom - black Americans. It was a bit amusing to me, as I often couldn't tell the difference. That really irritated him.
At the end of the day, not at all.
Obama shored up the base of blacks with those comments and actions. There was real fear of his black support level dropping to below 99.999%.
The American sheeple haven`t been given permission from the Minisrry of Propaganda to express outrage at Obama`s interjection.
Hey liberals! the dude is brown! His white genes got shoved aside by his Mayan/Aztecan ones.
If Pancho Villa had a son, he would look like Jorge Zimmerman.
I agree with the author, big backfire here.
I just found out his Mom was Peruvian, I guess that would make his genetic makeup possibly Incan?
WTF is a “white Hispanic”? a dreamed up race by the MSM.
WTF is a “white Negro”? A nightmare purportrated upon the United States by Marxists who want to destroy this country and they have been doing a pretty good job of it for the last three years.
F BHO with malice
I don’t see how Hispanics could unite behind Obama and the blacks after Obama stood there and told them, they don’t look like his son!
Sensei, snag the HTML from Post #30, if you like.
Yeah, commi liberal cowards always try to go hug hug, we make up and do not betray each other... yet... when we all know they have a long knife at each other’s back the minute they are stuck somewhere.
We should not support these people. Our continued support of such people is what is killing this country. But as the economy crashes, it is wake up time for commi liberals, time for them to “get real” and start killing each other before the end of this “hunger game” of theirs.
Keep your freaking ammo dry folkes, and start the pop corn.
