Skip to comments.Why the Leftist outrage at the acquittal of George Zimmerman?
Posted on 07/19/2013 3:01:36 AM PDT by marktwain
There is an illustrated list of Leftist and media reactions here.
"Its 2013 and an American jury just acquitted a man who admitted to stalking and killing an unarmed child" Richard Dreyfus, actor
I think you can see why in the face above. That face is expressing glee -- barely restrained delight. The slightest hint that America is unjust is manna from heaven for Leftists. They build their self-esteem on being wiser and more compassionate than "the masses". And given America's black/white tensions, a chance to see others as racist is not to be missed. It is America's most powerful form of condemnation so any chance to use it must be used even if it is only remotely justified.
It's pathetic that people need to condemn others in order to boost their own self-esteem but that's Leftists. They never cease finding fault.
I note however that many of the commentators refer to the 6' tall Martin as a "child". So the constant media use of pictures of Martin when he was a child may have misled some commentators in an important way. It would have made it less plausible that Zimmerman acted in self-defense.

He is an Australian academic who studied the psychology of the left.
So go ahead, Leftmedia, hold your breath until you turn blue. Please.
The jury has heard the evidence, the verdict is "not Guilty".
The re-telling of Trayvon’s ordeal and Zimmerman’s trial is all dishonest. Not merely mendacious, but truly and intentionally dishonest by cherry picking this and that. The Dreyfus quote above is only a mild example.
And not widely asked, but how long would Zimmerman have lasted if he had not defended himself? How many more head-smashed would it have taken to put out his lights?

I agree, Sorry if I sound... Mystical isn’t the right word... Perhaps credulous...What ever, I can’t find the right word right now. But where I was going is that I occasionally think that these people are ‘psychic vampires’ they literally seem to feed off of misery and inflict more of it so that they have more ‘food’.
So many of them I’ve known over my life seem to be the happiest when they have miserable people around them. Some generate that misery themselves, others just swarm to where it is occurring.
You can shroud it in psychological terms if you want to, but just step aside sometime and look with a uncritical eye, I think you’ll see what I mean.
They are giving it so much attention to draw attention away from Benghazi, Egypt and Obama commie care. Think about it: Self-defensee cases go on every-single-day, yet this one gets all this attention? Yeah and while you are pay attention pay no attention to the putz who is empowering radical Islam in the middle east and has everything lined up to destroy the US economy because the 911 terrorists failed.
Speaking of Richard Dreyfus, is he still doing massive amounts of cocaine while declaring himself a genius?
“Ok.. Help me out. Treyvon got killed because he just outta nowhere decided to attack and try and kill Zimmerman Ice T, musician and actor”
I would like to address this. If everyone recalls, according to GZ, (if you believe his testimony, I do) TM turned around, walked back toward his vehicle with his hand in his waistband.
Folks, I have worked in a predominantly black, violent urban area for a long time and I KNOW this behavior. This is displayed by street thugs who are getting ready to rob or shoot you, or make you think that they are. Most the time it’s a bluff, but you really can’t take the chance. I have had it done myself, even as a uniformed police officer. It usually stops when the real guns come out, nevertheless, keep this in mind if you are approached in this fashion.
Don’t get fixated by the accompanying verbal tirade either, this is done as a measure to mentally “stun” you while they close the gap. They don’t use their sights, it’s all point shooting or suckerpunching, so they have to get close.
The Left is outraged because they believe their own BS.
The Left is outraged because they want to own the streets.
My thoughts exactly.
It's impossible to unravel the web of lies and misdirection because you have lies built on wrong premises supported by fallacies.
One instance is the racial component of this event. I saw Zimmerman's mother on TV and noted she's even darker than me (well, in my "Winter coat", anyway). In what universe would George be considered "white" anything?
You don’t have to be an idiot to be an actor, but it helps.
"If I mouth all of the politically-correct platitudes and make an ostentatious display of my superiority, perhaps the young lady to my left would let me remove her dress..."
One of the most valuable pieces of information posted on this entire affair. Streets smarts. The man who does not live his life fighting all of the time would not know this.
Its obvious Dreyfuss knows nothing about the case and is just saying what he thinks his comrades want to hear. Applies to all other knee-jerk liberals that have spouted offf recently too.
His best work was American Graffiti, playing a dipshit.
Well hell, if Richard (Dick) Doofus said it, it must be true. I think I’ll join the Saint Trayvon bandwagon.
In a situation like that, don’t let ‘em get close.
There are learnable and usable tactics to stay far enough away from them, even as they are pressing.
Of course, if they press you, you may have to actually display or get ready to display.
“I don’t want to have to shoot you, but I’m armed, and if you take another step toward me, I will consider it a deadly threat.”
“Liberalism” is the political expression of Humanism,
which began with the lie
“you will be as gods [unto yourselves], knowing [and defining] good and evil [right and wrong] [for yourselves]”
Well that’s certainly playing fair.
There are 5 Stages of a Violent Crime
Don't let 'em come close enough to ask for a light or directions or anything.
Well, if Saint Rachel Corrie is a pancake, what is Saint Trayvon?
> His best work was American Graffiti, playing a dipshit.
Because it required no acting skills. He just played himself...
Conservatives have a double golden opportunity right now, to loudly proclaim to Hispanics-Latinos that every single liberal Democrat attacking Zimmerman racially despises Hispanics-Latinos; and that conservative Republicans are Zimmerman’s strongest supporters.
Hey, Hispanics-Latinos, think about *that* when you vote.
The anti-gun left in America can go straight to Hell.
F U Dreyfus. Yet another Hollyweird Hasbeen that insists on opening his piehole and effectively pissing off half of America with his leftist-agenda-driven stance.
“His best work was American Graffiti, playing a dipshit.”
What made you think he was playing (acting)? Now we know.
They need to be asked the question, over and over again, and be made to answer before spouting any more drivel -
What is it you want to do to us that requires we be unable to resist?
You have a valid point
My experience is that many Liberals privately are okay with the verdict as such. It is the so called liberal “leaders” and “activists” and “media pundits” who continue this charade because they have painted themselves into a corner and are not about to admit that the Zimmerman case is not the civil rights watershed moment they hoped. So they continue to push the Zimmerman as racist thug narrative. No facts, no jury finding is going to change their notions of reality.
What do you think of that? Anything to add or subtract?
I need to remember to read everything before posting.
I think you have revealed the core values of modern liberalism - although more than half the time it's the young boy parking the cars they are really after. :)
“What is it you want to do to us that requires we be unable to resist?”
I think it’s pretty obvious what they want us to do. Bow down, give in, submit or be killed.
We have a black racist president and a black racist attorney general. The left has to do something to convince blacks that they are still being held back by whitey.
