Supporters of Fla. shooter fearful of speaking out [Mob Shuts Down Discussion]
boston.com ^ | 3/28/2012 | Holbrook Mohr and Marina Hutchinson

Posted on 03/28/2012 3:49:10 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Trayvon Martin's supporters pack churches, swarm rallies and wear hooded sweat shirts in solidarity while friends and family of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot the unarmed teen to death, remain largely out of sight. The few that have defended Zimmerman did so reluctantly, most fearing public backlash.

This all works until you are out shopping at some mall, and some punk kid in a hoodie comes up to you as you approach your car...and robs you. After a couple of months of declining numbers of supporters....the media will ask why people aren’t standing with the crowd anymore. The hoodie threat response will be dismissed, and life will go on.

The truth is...the mob can only continue on....if they aren’t threatened by the punks in hoodies. I just don’t see that happening.

NPR just did a story expressing outrage that Zimmerman is "at large".

In their eyes he is a fugitive from justice, skulking in alleys, no doubt trying to flee to a foreign land with a helpful policy on extradition.

The whole Trayvon Martin thing is going to bite the Left on the ass. Hard.

Our Hitler, Obama, is setting things up for it to hit the fan. It’s his only hope to get re-elected, change the focus to racism.

Sales of ammunition and weapons will again go out of sight.

Our first Muslim President thinks things are going quite well, Americans still don’t have a clue WHY he is doing what he is doing. Americans are the biggest fools in history.

The first reports by the MSM made Zimmerman out to be a racist thug on a power trip—heck even Rick Santorum fell for their spin at first (believing the Leftist press is one of his few shortcomings) and that story has to last until the election or black folk will not be irrationally angry enough at Whitey to vote their usual 95% for the Democrat.

“I think this entire episode as a whole is really hurting Obama.”

I’ve maintained that from the start, when others felt he wanted this atmosphere; he is steadily bleeding white (and to a lesser extent, Hispanic) voters every day this is in the news. Stories of blacks beating on whites tend to drive liberal whites into the arms of law-and-order type Republicans.

I’m not so sure it is hurting him but it shows you just what “Holder’s people” are like. They go off half cocked, cannot control their emotions and do/say stupid things BEFORE the facts are known. It has happened hundreds of time before and will happen again. Obama loves this since it will get his/holder’s people behind him come election time (if there is one). If they create enough discourse and all hell breaks loose, then comes Marshal Law. Obama wants it to happen.

That's what mobs (liberals) do.

Remember the health care "debate". There WAS no debate, just mob thuggery.

Didn't the Mobster-in-Chief actually say, during the "debate", "we don't want a lot of debate on this issue..."?

This wont hurt Obumbles, the MSM will see to that.

They have already started to kill the story now that facts are coming out.

The mindless sheep that watch/read them will only get the story that was first told...

“A poor black child of about 12 yrs old ( that is the picture they used )with a bag of candy, was chased down a murdered for being in a rich gated community of mansions by a racist white guy with an illegal gun.

The racist all white police dept covered it all up.”

Don't expect much coverage beyond that to ever get to the masses, that wont happen.

They [Holder's people] go off half cocked, cannot control their emotions and do/say stupid things BEFORE the facts are known.

Facts are irrelevant to Holder's people. It appears that they have been pumped up on hatred for hears (at churches like Obama) so that they are operating on pure emotion.

I think many White Americans are shocked at what they have learned about Blacks since the emergence of Obama on the national scene. White folks harbored no racism against anyone and had no idea that many Black churches were preaching pure hatred of them.

It has change the dynamic in America. It has put many Americans on guard.

It has injected a new and powerful suspicion into a previously somewhat innocent America. It is creating a deep distrust between the races.

Santorum Pronounces Zimmerman Guilty Before Trial, or Charge

  http://cdn.breitbart.com/_res/img/logo.png
Republican presidential contender Sen. Rick Santorum appeared on CBS' Face the Nation this morning and pronounced George Zimmerman guilty of murder in the first degree.

Admitting that he was "not privy to what’s going on in someone’s mind," Santorum nevertheless said that Zimmerman, who shot and killed teenager Trayvon Martin while participating in a neighborhood watch last month, "has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this." He added that Zimmerman's motive had been "malicious."

The mental state of the alleged perpetrator, the motive, and the question of whether he pursued the alleged victim, are both critical in determining guilt. Santorum's conclusions are consistent with first-degree murder under Florida law.

As a lawyer, Santorum ought to know that Zimmerman would be entitled to a presumption of innocence if he were facing trial--and he has not even been charged with a crime.

Obama’s son could be a lot like Obama.

A student at three different schools who never heard of him, going through life smoking dope ,and living with a homosexual lover, perhaps doing a little chicken hawking on the side for a few extra bucks and studying Marxism.All the while stoking a growing bitterness because he was born of a mixed shotgun marriage between a mother who liked to try her luck with other races and a father who was a drunken womaniser.

RIGHT NOW would be a REAL GOOD time for any conservative who has not yet gotten CCW and a gun to remedy that omission. This is starting to look more and more like it will be an ugly year, and anybody who waits much longer will find the shelves bare and the state unable to keep up with CCW applications.

By that statement, Santorum has demonstrated his willingness to throw people under the bus in order to curry favor with the Left.

And this is the man that FR "social conservatives" were so in love with?

The left has put their groups out again to infiltrate local channel FB’s and there is no way the MSM should get away with their bias.

Here many of us are going on our local channels and we’ve all put the updated photo of Martin and Zimmermann, not he little 10 year old chubby baby faced kid .

If the MSM actually took the time out they would see a racist hate group calling for the kidnapping of a guy or they could actually take 5 mins of their day to look at our laws and then they could actually stop putting those old photo’s up of Martin.

I hope all of us have gone on their local channels and called their bias out

“I think this entire episode as a whole is really hurting Obama.”

Latest polls from FL and OH show he is gaining support there. If the election were held today he would carry either state easily over Romney. Not that the latter would be much of an improvement, IMO. Anyway too many Americans don’t seem to care much about all the garbage he is foisting on us. Not to mention media brainwashing about the “improving” economy, and high gas prices being good for us, seem to be working.

Us down here and the midwest are ignored and the establishment thinks we should get in line, for what another pro homo, pro cross dressing agenda, they even think if they put someone on the ticket awe like we’ll come out like last time.

Prior to each and every terrorist attack, attempted attack, or threat of attack since 1993, the left has always ginned up civil unrest,attempted to gin up civil unrest, or had a plan to gin up civil unrest.

It isn’t going to be any different this time. Terrorist attacks are coming down the pike.

First there will be race riots and there will be National Guard troops brought in.

Then the terrorist attacks will start, and the National Guard troops will then be under Federal control, the president’s control, not the govs. of the states.

They put out a north east elitist socially liberal, big Govt spender then they attack with everything they had against Newt once they saw their guy getting beat and then we’re left with this crap and they will wonder why they will lose my state or other states.

4 years from now they will put another moderate, socially liberal candidate and think we’ll get excited and again they will wonder why they are losing more and more people and again they think they should get more and more moderates out there for us.

The GOP is done, and after they way they attacked Newt then they can piss off and no matter who they put out as VP they can forget me or my family for support , money or getting out the vote.

Romney what a frigging joke, then take one for the team Rick, Paul a nut case and Newt too much baggage though he was the best to run in a debate v bozo the clown .

Sarah and Col Allen West is the only ticket now and let it be a lesson to the establishment your moderate candidates from the north east or anywhere does not work,

It is why we are in a world of hurt. And it is just getting worse. It will reach critical mass, eventually. I think this may be the year, and I think the election itself may be the catalyst.

Yep. A question I ask on other sites is, “why have the police not arrested Zim? I would think they have enough evidence to at least hold him (or do they?), and it would appear to be the expedient thing to do.”

I come up with three possible reasons:

1. The evidence is simply not there.
2. The ghost of George Wallace is running this.
3. The Hispanic vote.

Funny that nobody is really talking about number three.

It is what I and SoFloFreeper have been doing. I’ve been doing it all over the web at every opportunity. We are not alone, but we are definitely in the minority.

And I don’t mean claiming Zim is innocent. Rather, imploring people to look at ALL the facts and consider that they only know what the MSM tells them before they marry themselves to a position on this. And I remind them that they should avoid being part of a lynch mob.

Interestingly, as more information comes out, more are moving to the center and even in defense of Zim. I’m staying in the middle, unless this goes to trial and I end up on the jury (which is highly unlikely since I don’t live in that state. But when you have an Infinite Improbability Drive anything’s possible).

I completely agree. How much, you may ask? Two weeks before bammy was elected I bought a small farm in central Kentucky and August of last year I permanently moved their from my home of 45 years, Seattle.

Frankly, I should have done this a LONG time ago. It’s still like heaven on earth out here, even though every day I drive by the carcass of two buildings that were completely wiped out by tornadoes a few weeks ago.

But we can be 100% self sufficient on this property and are working in that direction.

It’s already happening. The good news is that not all liberals are idiots. When one claims that the police gave Zim back his gun, and you show them the retraction of that statement by the Brady group, they are silenced. When they claim Tray was screaming for help and you point them to the eyewitness accounts of those who SAW Tray on top of Zim and beating him while ZIM was screaming for help, they are silenced.

Etc.

The intelligent ones backtrack into the “we need to get all the facts before we make any judgements” middle. But I don’t leave it at that. I remind them that we were all victims of a press intentionally trying to bias this. I show them the raw picture of Tray compared to the seriously doctored one in a hoodie, and also point out that most of the pictures of him are not even that one, but one of him several years ago. Why do they not do the same for Zim?

They do come around. Some of them do, anyway.

not arrested him because he operated with in our laws, our FL laws which many do not understand.

There is nothing to be charged with, evidence supports the factors, witnesses state what they saw and now we have left wing groups signing onto local channels and local papers and pretending to be the average joe who is horrified.

I hope all of us have put the real facts and photos on our FB’s and gone to the local news channels and called them out for their bias in this and ask them if they are wanting a race war because right now they are causing a lot of trouble that they will regret it.

This site just shows how some of them think this is funny, or asking for a riot or just cannot understand basic facts of the laws

Not hardly.

Article 4 section 4
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

And on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive means the STATE governments, not the federal one.

This does not, however, says Barbeyrac, hinder but each confederated state may provide for its particular safety, by repressing its rebellious subjects. And herewith the present constitution of the United States fully agrees. For although congress are bound to guarantee to every state in the union a republican form of government, and to protect each of them against invasion; and also against domestic violence; yet this last is only to be done where the legislature, or executive of the state (where the legislature cannot be convened) shall make the application.

That a law limited to such objects as may be authorised by the constitution, would, under the true construction of this clause, be the supreme law of the land; but a law not limited to those objects, or not made pursuant to the constitution, would not be the supreme law of the land, but an act of usurpation, and consequently void.

Article XVII. The people have a right to keep and to bear arms for the common defence. And as, in time of peace, armies are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be maintained without the consent of the legislature; and the military power shall always be held in an exact subordination to the civil authority, and be governed by it.

EVERY State Constitution has this provision, there can BE no 'nationwide' Martial Law unless every single Governor rolls over.

That's not something I see as being close to realistic.

Santorum’s statement is very similar in spirit to most of the vitrol I was seeing on all those web sites last weekend.

I’m so done with that creep.

And I will never vote for Romney. Hmmmm. Looks like I have a conundrum. I’m beginning to think our best course in November is a republican congress and a neutered Obama.

Seriously.

Comments?

agree I’m all over the new and my local channels right now and the local papers, there I no way the left will use this any further for their agenda.

Total B/S all of this and why has the Hispanic groups not come out and where is the DOJ and why has GA the only state which has made an arrest of the black racist hate group panthers?

To me it shows how the left has their groups at a moments notice for a riot or to stand down

The more the panthers are on TV the more support we gain for justice
