Trayvon was planting daisies, singing hymns, and dancing ballet when Grand Wizard Zimmerman and THE ENTIRE KKK attacked.

George grew up bilingual, and by age 10 he was often called to the Haydon Elementary School principal's office to act as a translator between administrators and immigrant parents. At 14 he became obsessed with becoming a Marine, a relative said, joining the after-school ROTC program at Grace E. Metz Middle School and polishing his boots by night. At 15, he {Zimmerman} worked three part-time jobs - in a Mexican restaurant, for the rectory, and washing cars - on nights and weekends, to save up for a car.

Compare this to Trayvon - kicked out school, attacked a bus driver, caught with burglary tools and women's jewelry... dressed like a 'gangster'... thin-skinned 'criminal wannabe' type...

IMO, THE money quote from this whole article. Other than Reuters (better late than never, I suppose) I don’t know of any other media outlet reporting this.

Much of the black community is held hostage by the thugs...

I remember when journalists told the truth too ... you were born before the 60’s right?

No, but I am old enough to remember when there were conservative alternatives to the MSM. US News & WR instead of Time Magazine, for example. A decent number of local papers that were conservative--San Diego Union, St. Louis Globe Democrat, OC Register, etc. A smattering of movies that supported the United States instead of tearing it down. Even liberal journalists had enough pride in what they did that they did not allow themselves to become propagandists.

There are no MSM conservatives anywhere. All conservatives have is talk radio and the internet. It is amazing that America survives in the face of this sustained onslaught. It is a testament to the resilience of the American culture, but it is being eroded away as surely as the Grand Canyon started as a crack in the prairie.

Zimmerman was a standup guy, solid citizen, and good neighbor.

Trayvon was a dirt-bag drug dealer in the making. His early demise is no great loss to society.
