Skip to comments.ABC Not Sure Whether Death Threats In Trayvon Martin Aftermath 'Going Too Far'
Posted on 03/31/2012 7:12:35 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Is it right to make death threats against George Zimmerman and his family? ABC News isn't sure. In a Good Morning America news segment today on the Trayvon Martin case, as the ABC reporter spoke from Sanford, Florida, this graphic was displayed across the bottom of the screen:
"ARE DEATH THREATS GOING TOO FAR?"

Incredible: ABC wonders whether death threats in Trayvon Martin case “going too far.” Ping to Today show list.
ABC has been the worst with this story— publishing the name of a minor witness, hiding scars...
If it is determined they are not, please let us know.
It would save a lot of debate space here on FR, as everybody would tumble to a “the winning argument”.
Yes. The local WFTV in Orlando (ABC) is always showing the video of Zimmerman with the police and that he “shows no injuries.” They are truly trying to prove a point.
There’s plenty of self policing on here as to those sort of comments. It astounds me that there are no repercussions for those making threats.Bounties even!
I guess the real lesson once more driven home is its not what is said but rather who says it. If we were the one’s making threats or posting bounties we’d have already been locked up.
If we make that when we have the riots the blood will be on WFTV local channel 9 here. . . .
That's a real brain teaser right there ...
What "Point" would they be trying to prove? It sounds more like they are trying to manufacture or sway public opinion.
If they are talking about threats to sharpton and jackson, then they have not gone far enough.
wow, then what is too far?
Next on ABC: Would lynch mobs and burning down all the white-Hispanic people's houses be going to far?
Lord, these people are evil.
They are trying to prove they were right from the start that he had no injuries. Yes. They also are trying to sway public opinion. But Fox35 in Orlando and Tampa Fox station is bringing the truth out.
“It would save a lot of debate space here on FR, as everybody would tumble to a the winning argument.”
Good one. Like the way we nominate GOP presidential candidates, right?
Maybe, just maybe, when Zimmerman is found hanging on the end of a noose. But even then ABC may not be sure.
I must admit I do review abcnews.com and also cbsnew.com
just to see what the nutcases are saying, it kind of gives me a feel of what population thinks.
But as far as believing their crap. No way Jose’oh is that racist. ha ha ha
If that’s what ABC believes and words are no longer important or to be regarded seriously, I take it that I can say what I think of the new black pampers without repercussion. If death threats aren’t a hate crime, nothing is.
Sarah Palin's 'Crosshairs' Ad Dominates Gabrielle Giffords Debate
No surprise of course, It's what they do. The MSM advocates. They are a part of the aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue, arguably the Establishment.
There was a time long ago when evil people like this would have been hanged.
Well, “Whitey” has it coming, don’tcha know; he oppressed “disadvantaged” people for decades. So, whatever Obama and his lapdog media can do to incite a race war that will halt the election (that the black man, Obama might lose) is justified. Even organizing the “swift justice” lynching of Zimmerman (who is white enough to serve the purpose, thank you very much).
Sarah Palin, on the other hand, as a “lily Whitey” cannot even so much as publish MAP LOCATION MARKINGS on her brochures because they resemble RIFLE SIGHTS, and, and, and she kills MOOSES.
Of course, we’re not talking mere death threats on an individual level, here.
We’re talking an initial $10,000.00 bounty placed on a man’s head, dead or alive, now upped to a million, if some accounts are to be believed.
Does anyone, other than race-addled affirmative action nincompoops in media, government and academia, believe that militant, racialist organizations putting bounties on people’s heads is *not* going too far?
That’s the question that should be being asked.
It also begs the question as to just who the racists really are, with their painfully obvious belief that black people are incapable of living up to the behavioral standards and laws that apply to the rest of US society.
The question of whether death threats are “going too far” wouldn’t even be asked, if those issuing such threats were actually regarded as responsible adults capable of controlling themselves, they’d have already been arrested and charged.
Guess ABC news never read the original police report. Seems to me the cop wrote a pretty detailed incident report....But then, who really reads those simple details.... “Off with their heads” (sarc)
As I recall it is going too far to use Obama’s middle name when referring to him in the previous election cycle, to use the word “target” in political strategy, to say “You lie” to the President, to use the word “slut” if you are Limbaugh, to refer to a “black hole” or to use the word niggardly, to say “alien” when referring to illegal immigrants. Just off the top of my head, those are some of the things I recall the MSM calling out of line.
Why is anyone watching this network and thus, improving their ratings?
I’ve heard the “I do so you don’t have to” line before, so don’t even try it.
I do so you don’t . . . Oh, wait, sorry ;-)
But seriously, as a writer at NewsBusters, it’s literally my job, as our motto says, to expose and combat liberal media bias.
The real question for the Leftist media is only whether or not their aims are advanced. It is not going too far if it helps to promote statism and Hussein’s re-election. The Left is only restrained by a backlash, never by any moral standard.
I just thought of a scenario. What if Zimmerman was murdered by some thugs? Would that ignite the powder keg? I think it would.....and I think this is what they are trying to do, and then it will snowball. “Well, we got Zimmerman, anyone else we perceived has done wrong to our race is fair game.”
That they can even ask if that is going to far is a sure sign of just how corrupt, lost, and far from an honest human experience ABC really is. ABC is in a twisted, distorted fantasy world. (ie. liberal-land)
Ga. high school students tweet Trayvon riot; threats of violence grow over Twitter; Sharpton heads to Sanford
But now in our new brave America...
For lynching, white hoods still bad ... but black hoodys now good?
This raises an interesting point. Since the Just Us department has refused to initiate any actions against those making racist death threats, I wonder what would happen if someone very carefully crafted an “anti-assassin defense fund” to *protect* those associated with the event “from attacks by racist assassins”.
This would have to be set up by some skilful lawyers to avoid being unlawful, and would be far more a publicity stunt than any actual armed defense, but it could accomplish some very interesting political goals.
1) To demonstrate that the Just Us Department is criminally and unconscionably discriminatory.
2) As a warning to racial agitators that efforts to promote riots, public disturbances, group attacks like ‘state fair wildings’, and individual race-based assaults against honest citizens will not be tolerated by those honest citizens, who are prepared to defend themselves and other honest citizens from attack.
3) When a ‘mass event’ by racist agitators is proposed, counter their proposal by scheduling a “concealed carry day”, to encourage honest citizens to arm themselves and be aware of those who wish to riot, rob and loot, vandalize, and assault honest citizens. As a *purely defensive* gesture.
That is, while they may have their legal protest with no problem or incitement, if they trespass against the law and there are no LEOs available to protect the public, then ordinary citizens should be prepared to do so.
4) To clearly identify those agitators calling for violence, as well as their confederates (such as politicians and leaders of the ‘Occupy’ movement), that seek to foment violence and criminal discord and riot.
I bet they’d know if the threats were made to them.
The Obama controlled media fanned the contraception firestorm. Now it’s fanning the flames of a race war. I expect Obama to continue pummeling us with firestorm issues, one after another, until this election is over. Unfortunately, Romney isn’t up to effectively responding to these.
If only somebody would tweet the names and home addresses of those who designed and approved the graphic, I'm sure we'd have our answer in a matter of a few hours.
Put Brian Ross on the story...
Romney is a RINO - the very purpose of a RINO, their reason for existence, is to not effectively respond to the Leftists.
The Leftists set the fires - the RINOs block the exits.
A race war would not end well for the feral youts among us. When Obama was elected, gun and ammo sales were off the charts and still are. The silent and non-feral majority is armed and ready.
ABC Radio invoked the namd Rev. Al Sharpton, without explaining his involvement with the Tawana Brawley hoax.
The media will not be satisfied until there is some white blood spilt.
One has a foam-filled head and is operated by a puppeteer. The other is a Muppet.
ABC shames the concept of 'journalism' - if that's even possible in this day and age...
Lol. The muppet has more intellect, for certain.
I want a bounty posted on the heads of Sharpton and the New Black Panther Party leadership. Is that “going too far”?
they r imbeciles
