Gays come out for justice for Trayvon Martin
The Washington Post's Post Partisan ^ | April 5, 2012 | Jonathan Capehart

You know about the complaint many African Americans have about gay men and lesbians equating — in any way — their shared struggle for equal rights with the civil rights movement. Well, going hand-in-hand with that is an annoyance with the seeming one-way nature of the gay appropriation. In other words, the gays want everyone to understand their plight, but they do nothing to lend their voice and support when the blacks could use it.

That changed with the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.

On Monday, 23 groups representing the varied concerns of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people issued an open letter in support of Trayvon’s family and their quest for justice.

The tragic killing of Trayvon Martin is a national call to action. Our hearts go out to Trayvon’s family and friends for the loss they have experienced. We stand in solidarity with them as they demand answers and justice. We represent organizations with diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender constituencies.

Many in our community have been targets of bigotry and bias. We have a great deal of experience grappling with the role bias plays in violent crimes against our communities. We well know the stories of young people targeted for violence just because of who they are: Rashawn Brazell, Lawrence King, Ali Forney, Deoni Jones, Brandon White, Matthew Shepard, Angie Zapata, Sean Kennedy and countless others.

Trayvon’s killing is a wakeup call to the enduring cancer of racism and racial profiling....

I’ve seen a few replies hinting around that there might be more affinity than that, implying that all the juvenile misgyny on display in those Facebook posts was very indicative of rampant “DL” behavior, from the hiphop artists they idolize right on down the line to the teenagers mimicking them. To break it down, a lot of those wannabe “gangstas” are interested in each other.

Don’t have any idea if it’s true, but I have seen hinting around about this in various comments online, not all of which are all that conservative.

The DNC shall never focus on the economy.

They push for unemployment insurance while fighting jobs growth.

Bottom up, top down, inside out.

If the scenario doesn’t occur on it’s own, then create it.

This is the method of revolutionaries, and it is revolutionaries taking advantage of, manufacturing and perpetuating negative human emotion in the death of an every day criminal.

This is going to be repeated until the desired result is achieved or until they are forcefully stopped.

Thought question: what if Trayvon Martin actually RECEIVED “justice” on the night he was killed? What if getting killed was his “just reward” for assaulting Zimmermann?

Do these “abusers of themselves with mankind” and effeminate REALLY want “justice”? What if “justice” means they burn with fire forever?

No, I think what they quest after isn’t justice, it’s special treatment and license to do what they know full well isn’t right.

Square the circle? Give 'em enough time and opportunity, they'll make it legal to screw the pooch.

I’m waiting for Jonathan Capehart to take note of all the grandmothers knitting on the porch that are supporting justice for Trayvon.

I’m waiting for Jonathan Capehart to take note of all the Maytag repairmen that are supporting justice for Trayvon.

I’m waiting for Jonathan Capehart to take note of all the car insurance geckos that are supporting justice for Trayvon.

I’m waiting for Jonathan Capehart to take note of all the visigoths hawking credit cards that are supporting justice for Trayvon.

I’m waiting for Jonathan Capehart to pull his head out of his ass!

He’s right. It shouldn’t go unnoticed. It deserves all the scorn and ridicule we can muster.

Tracy Morgan and Rollin Martin appreciates the gays getting behind them on this.

They aren't the only ones. I heard that Valley High School - not sure of name - in West Des Moines, Iowa is holding a support Trayvon day, or something like it. Students will be wearing hoodies to show their support.

What are the odds that this spectacle of using a tragedy to create a political show of the PC victims will convert some blacks to conservatism?

Man arrested on robbery, battery charges in transvestite shootings
The Palm Beach Post ^ | April 6, 2012 | Cynthia Roldan
Posted on April 6, 2012 10:40:34 PM CDT by ConservativeStatement

A Palm Beach Gardens man who Riviera Beach and West Palm Beach police say was shooting transvestite prostitutes has been arrested.

On Friday, a judge ordered that 22-year-old Luis Rijo De Los Santos be held in lieu of $300,000 bail.

De Los Santos, who already is facing charges of robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery with a firearm, may also be charged with first-degree murder, as one of the men he allegedly

Obama to Holder: Can we make this attacker out to be 1/4 white? You know if I had a son, he would like like that transvestite. Do you think he looks like my girls?

I guess the story isn't complete until the gay, lesbian, transgendered, and sexually confused add their take on things. When will we hear from NAMBLA and those wanting legalization of sex with animals? I can hardly contain my anxiety. /s/
