Ed Schultz blames Bush for Trayvon Martin's death

MSNBC host Ed Schultz blamed former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., for the death of Trayvon Martin, the teenager whose death in a shooting has made national news and sparked accusations of racism in America.

"Jeb Bush helped pave the way for this senseless tragedy and remains silent," Schultz said last night on his show. "What a political tragedy." Schultz attributed Martin's death to Bush because the former governor signed a "stand your ground" law designed to allow someone to shoot an attacker when threatened. "

Well dam......Those Bush guys are just terrible. It’s raining here and I’m sure they are to blame for that also.

How ‘bout blaming the guy that actually did the shooting? Wow, that’d be original.

No talk show host or politician put a gun in Zimmerman’s hand and told him to shoot. We don’t even have the whole story. Although, one COULD point some blame the musicians and race- baiters for encouraging unrest.

MSNBC Host Blames Limbaugh, Gingrich, Santorum For Trayvon Martin Death

“Jeb Bush helped pave the way for this senseless tragedy and remains silent,”

Translation: Jeb Bush just endorsed Romney. Jeb Bush is responsible for the senseless tragedy. Romney, by association, is also responsible for this. Don’t vote for Romney against Obama in the general election.

Makes sense to me!

Does anyone actually pay any attention to Shultz? For the record George H.W. Bush and Barbara are responsible because they had Jeb as their son. Makes sense doesn’t it!

To my knowledge, a stand your ground law doesn’t allow you to chase someone down and shoot them on suspicion of trespassing which is what Zimmerman did. Seems like this doesn’t really have anything to do with a stand your ground law then.

I guess Ed never considered the possibility that sometimes it is more prudent to keep your pie hole shut until all the facts are in.

There are three facts related to this case which aren't being publicized:

  1. Martin was a big husky 17 year old who played football. Why is the only picture being shown on the news of him about 5 years old and show him as an early teen or preteen?
  2. Everyone is seemingly willing to climb on the "lets lynch Zimmerman" bandwagon except the City Manager, a black gentlemen himself, and the police department most familiar with the case. Why do you suppose that is?
  3. There was an altercation between Zimmerman and Martin before the fatal shot was fired. Indeed, the altercation proceeded the fatal shot. The altercation was exactly why the police bought the self-defense claim from Zimmerman and didn't arrest him on the spot. Yet, of all the ink spilled on this case, there is next to nothing about the details of the altercation.

This is speculation on my part, but based on the facts above being ignored by the media frenzy, this is what I think happened:

Zimmerman was belligerent, possibly even drunk and certainly didn't talk to Martin as respectfully as the TSA talks to Muslims. He may have even said something racial like what is a guy like Martin doing walking in their gated community.

Martin was possibly even drunk as well, but not with alcohol. I'd say he was drunk with pride. Pride which wouldn't allow a racial inferior, particularly a pudgy white guy to disrespect him. He felt he had not only a right, but a duty to teach this cracker a lesson particularly when Zimmerman followed him and pushed the envelope.

What he didn't know, however, was that Zimmerman was carrying an equalizer and was unwilling to submit the beating which he so richly deserved for his disrespect. That's when the real trouble started.

My mama, like so many others, taught me that "sticks and stones may break your bones, but names will never hurt you." The gangsta culture, OTOH, teaches that a beating is a perfectly proper response to being disrespected or insulted and said beating may escalate to even lethal force if the insult or disrespect is sufficiently offensive.

Trayvon allegedly was in the neighborhood visiting his father and his father’s girlfriend and their child.

Ed Schultz blames former President George Bush for Trayvon’s death? How about starting with Trayvon’s adulterous father, the father’s fornicating girlfriend, and the mother—wherever she was.

“” For the record George H.W. Bush and Barbara are responsible because they had Jeb as their son. Makes sense doesn’t it!””””

It was Jebs people that did it. Think about it. Jeb is white, his wife is Hispanic which makes them a white Hispanic couple. The shooter was a WHITE HISPANIC!!! Do the math.
