Is George Zimmerman a Witch? (/s)
(vanity)

Posted on 03/30/2012 7:18:51 PM PDT by Cringing Negativism Network

Sorry for the dup from another thread, but I'd been considering this theme for a while this evening, and decided just to go ahead and start a thread:

Is the hysteria we are seeing, similar to the Salem Witch Trials?


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: salem; trials; witch

USA 2012 = Salem Massachusetts 1692

Growing up, I wondered about how adults could be the way they were, in the story "The Emperors New Clothes":

The Emperors New Clothes

And the Salem Witch trials:

Salem Witch Trials



As an adult, I am shocked how easily, the behavior which confused me as a child, is fomented now, 2012, right here in America, in adults.

And now, I understand it's still possible ... for equally irrational behavior to happen exactly as in those seemingly fictional people in those long ago stories. Right here in America. In the 21st century.



History repeats.

Even now.

Yes, the same sort of hysteria that drove the Salem witch hunts is driving the hunt for George Zimmerman. If Martin had killed Zimmerman we would not be having this conversation. If they had not posted false photos we would not be having this conversation.

I just knew he was a witch when I first saw him!! He just had that look about him. The way his shirt collar was fixed, and his nose seemed to favor to the right.

To the rack with him!!

Part of the hysteria is they see no facts to the contrary.

I watched the video of what seemed like about a hundred kids from the local high school run into that Walgreens as a mob and ransack the place.

And no one commented that gee, maybe if these kids could do that, it wasn’t so outrageous for Zimmerman to worry that Trayvon Martin was up to no good.

Or that Trayvon had womens’ jewelry and a burglary tool, and pot residue, and engaged in gangsta talk, gold teeth, talk of “jumping” a bus driver...

Yet again, no one says gee maybe Zimmerman was not so crazy to suspect this guy.

If we can build a bridge out of him, he’s a witch because bridges are made of wood. Burn him!

I’ve had to explain my screen name very once in a while.

At the time I stopped lurking at this (fabulous) site, Bush was president.

The MSM as exemplified by CNN itself was CONSTANTLY screaming at the top of their lungs, from rooftops, that the sky was falling and Bush was single handedly responsible for the end of the world as we knew it.

(back when unemployment was 5%)

There was a constant, frenetic deluge of crisis and horror from the very same “journalists” now busy, polishing Obama’s boots around the clock.

That’s where it came from.

So now that unemployment is 25% and Obama has his boots polished we all know it wasn’t bush that killed the world, it was your follow man. Wright? Right? Write? RITE?

Just like wearing button downs, or any other classic. One only needs to wait long enough:

I expect once a Republican is elected this year, I will no longer need to explain away my screen name. ;)

It will be blindingly obvious once again.

Yeah, No. I decided something when I was 11 years old. And it has only cost me everything ONCE.

At that moment when it was blindingly obvious. Brought down by my follow man. And that lying f$$$!!! judge.

They had their chance.

I won’t let it happen again.

If you’re willing to do what it takes Joe-buck, I can rid you of that lefty worm.

First, you’ve gotta decide to eat one meal a day—dinner, supper, whatever you call your evening meal. And eat moderately.
Next, you push as much of a sugar cookie as you can into your lower large intestine.
Do this each day until you run out of cookies.
The following day, as soon as you finish your meal, grab the wooden mallet.
`Obiwan’ should stick his head out wondering where his sugar cookie is, so then you whack him on the head.
Okey dokey?

Those going after him already have their hoods (hoodies) all they need now is something to burn on his lawn and a rope. That’s what they tweeting of his home address was about to sic the mob on it to either drag him out or to terrorize his family. Don’t see much differnce between this group and the Democrats in the South after the Civil War and into this century.
