Posted on 03/31/2012 1:34:44 PM PDT by John Semmens
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) said she is weighing other options in the event that Florida officials are unsuccessful in punishing George Zimmerman for shooting Trayvon Martin.
Martin was killed by neighborhood watch volunteer Zimmerman February 26. Though all the facts are not yet publicly known, demands that Zimmerman be charged with murder have been gaining momentum in certain circles. The New Black Panther Party has posted a $10,000 reward for Zimmermans capture and is in the process of organizing a 5,000-man posse to undertake the effort. Celebrities Spike Lee and Roseanne Barr have tweeted address information for different Zimmermans residing in Florida. Representative Bobby Rush (D-Ill) wore a hoodie sweatshirt on the floor of the House.
If these efforts to secure justice for Trayvon dont succeed we will have to look at what we can do to make things right, Pelosi vowed. One of the measures Pelosi says shes looking into is the possibility that Congress could pass a bill declaring Zimmerman guilty and impose a reasonable penalty. Or maybe the President can declare him an enemy and have him taken out by one of those drone thingies. But the bottom line is we cant abide racist local officials condoning the murder of a Black youth.
In related news, Pelosi called Rushs hoodie demonstration the most heroic act Ive ever witnessed.

Here’s a novel idea. How about the truth?
your bad... LOL
I like your posts, but sometimes it’s hard to tell where the wit ends and reality begins. Something about truth being stranger than fiction, et al.
“Unsucessful in punishing Zimmerman...”
Really? Not much agenda there.
Truth from Pelosi ? When will that start ? I find this very sad the way the left tries to divide America. There has to be a thorough investigation and if Zimmerman is guilty of murder, go after him but with Eric Holder, Obama, the black panthers, can you trust the investigation ? I have no respect, or less, from 99% of the politicians. Even a lot of republicans.
I would hope this country deserves far better than we have.
so the IRS found nothing
I fell for it. Sounds just lie them, though. Sounds like a Pelosi comment.
That does about sum up the whole matter from a Leftist perspective John. Thanks for the head shakin’, head spinner.
With her, there is no limit to how insane it might sound, and still be believable.
Yep, it had me going for a minute!
Old Tommy D’Allesandro, once mayor of Baltimore, did us all no favors when he forgot to strangle Nancy in her crib.
I knew it was satire when I got to this obviously over-the top and totally unrealistic statement:
“The New Black Panther Party has posted a $10,000 reward for Zimmermans capture...”
Another Pelosi “option” would be for the DemocRATS to refuse all votes from “white Hispanics” and return the ballots to the “white Hispanic” voters who cast them. That would show them!
Some Hispanic dude -
Should rpetend to be Zimmerman
Needs to arm himself to the teeth -
Then let the NBPP Know where
Could be he’s hiding out at my house. If the Panthers want him bad enough and brave enough to make it up the mountain, past my 7 rather large security dogs and the rain of hell I’ll be pouring out, come get him. Bring big Al and the 1st right rev. Jessy with you, It’ll be a blast. Innocent till proven guilty.
What is she smokin’?
Except in the case of Al Sharpton.
Seems like a perfect time to just “deem” him guilty and get the hanging noose ready..../s
