Obama's Zimmerman Problem
http://www.realclearpolitics.com ^ | April 13, 2012 | Pat Bucanan

Posted on 04/13/2012 7:19:11 AM PDT by BO Stinkss

God save me from my friends; I can take care of my enemies.

That thought must be coursing through the mind of President Obama right now as his White House rigs for silent running in the murder trial of George Zimmerman.

Obama foolishly inserted himself into this volatile case weeks ago, and injected the issue of race. Expressing empathy with the family of Trayvon Martin, Obama flashed a signal of racial solidarity:

"If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon."

Obama also implied that he shares the liberal perspective that America is a country where black kids must walk in daily fear of white racist vigilantes.

"All of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out how does something like this happen. And that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened, as well as the specifics of the incident."

Translation: The death of Trayvon tells us something is wrong with America.

To most Americans, this is a slander against their country, refuted by the statistics on interracial crime. Obama, however, buys into it.

Talk about a legal and media double standard.

FOXNEWS needs to start a running total at the bottom of the screen showing how many YOUNG BLACK MALES have been murdered since the Zimmerman self-defense.

If T. Martin’s death was senseless, are these others reasonable and acceptable?

I’ll bet it’s more than 100 by now, mostly from CHICAGO...

A huge problem is an activist state left-wing media which pushes propaganda and groupthink instead of reporting the news.

This has gone from manipulating public opinion through the subtle abuse of language to the downright blatant doctoring of images, video, transcripts of 911 calls ignoring any evidence which does not fit their propaganda.


George Zimmerman white

How the MSM lies, cheats and promotes left wing propaganda.

The above image demonstrates yet more doctoring of evidence by the MSM!
  1. ALL of the MSM used a childhood photo of the black man juxtaposed with Zimmerman dressed in 'county orange'.
  2. NBC News doctored the original 911 tape to portray Zimmerman as racist - claiming to later fire some unnamed producer when they were called upon this fraud
  3. ABC News doctored a video to hide Zimmerman's injuries
  4. CNN has now admitted that due to some 'enhancing' error, that Zimmerman did not use a racial slur at all... contrary to what they originally said when they were busy fanning the flames.
  5. The above photo as it appears in the original mugshot and then as it appears on ABC News, where they have made him look more white by bleaching and narrowing the image.

With regard to the image above, it cannot be said that it happened somehow by accident. These are major news agencies with the best equipment and image manipulation skills on the planet. This is more deliberate manipulation of the news and associated images to create anger and promote a particular line of propaganda.

How many examples can you find of the MSM doctoring the news either by editing 911 calls, police video or official mugshots? Perhaps by their choice of language - E.G.→ Coining the phrase "White Hispanic"?

Perhaps editing the images of Trayvon to show him as a baby, young boy or even photoshopping him to make him look like a doe-eyed model?


Even more evidence of ABC's intentionally falsification of its coverage.
Below is a still from the video of Zimmerman at the police station that ABC presented as evidence that Zimmerman had no signs of head injuries on the night of the shooting.

Notice the normal location of the logo/chyron on the left video as compared to the Zimmerman video - where it was intentionally moved to cover where the undoctored video best shows evidence of a head injury.


You've all seen the obvious use of Trayvon's baby picture instead of his recent hoodlum photos in all of the MSM... in fact, if you do a Google image search for Trayvon, they are still at the top of the results.

The Media's Trayvon vs. The Real Trayvon

Moochellie said exactly that. This is a funny video that is before the 2008 elections. Watch Soetoro’s face when she says it. He was not happy and after that, you didn’t see much of Moochelle and her big mouth.

Michelle Obama plays race card on 60 minutes:

Michelle Obama was in an interview, set to air Sunday night, February 11, 2007 CBS.
Michelle Obama, the candidate’s wife, acknowledged it in an interview to air on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” in which she was asked if she fears for her husband’s life as a black candidate.

She replied, “I don’t lose sleep over it because the realities are that . . . as a black man . . . Barack can get shot going to the gas station. You can’t make decisions based on fear and the possibility of what might happen.”

The media doesn’t report - they manufacture news. There is nothing significant about this case. This scenario plays out dozens of times everyday in America. The story has been remade and massaged for ratings and to rev up O’blamer’s base.

Doctored or not that Zimmerman picture looks a lot different than the guy on tv at the hearing.

The left may be opening a can of worms. Race riots and calls for gun control won't play well in middle America.

But it plays real well in NY, MA, NJ, etc. It also plays real well in the black voter contingent, the majority of which are constantly and desperately searching for some faint hint of something that they can twist into a racial slur to be publically offended by. It will play real well in Kalifornistan and IL too.

Doesn’t matter now. The riots will come after the election. Crisis for Zero defused. After the election (if he wins) it’s not a crisis. It’s an opportunity to issue more executive orders.

The geniuses at DU posted a version of this claiming the image on the right was the original, and that FOX OJ-shopped it to make him look darker and more sinister. Photoshop has a thugify plug-in...who knew.

FTA:

The prosecutors must have discovered new evidence to indict for murder. For all of the testimony from Zimmerman's side and the eyewitnesses seems to create more than a reasonable doubt that he committed a murder.

Pat ignores the context in which Corey, the governor, and Florida AG were operating. If Zimmeman were totally exonerated now, the morally and legally right thing to do, the Illegal's homies on the street, egged on by the Illegal and Holder, would have set Florida, especially Miami, on fire and gleefully started murdering tourists. Not only would there have been significant bloodshed, but the Florida tourism industry would have tanked. Hence, the baseless charge. I also suspect the Florida authorities will drag this case on for as long as reasonably possible before there's a trial just to let things cool off and avoid destructive and expensive civil unrest.

When the riots come, they will typically happen in urban areas. At least that’s what history seems to show. It also counter productive in that it destroys their own neighborhood. It’s also counter productive in that it does not make relations better, it drives a wedge keeping them apart. This may be the goal of the lefties. After all, most communist takeovers seem to start with some type of chaos.

“Obama is freaking crazy.”

Obama is crazy like a fox. No, he is freaking EVIL!

I think FUBO has a deep-seated mental problem, perhaps the result of his unorthodox upbringing. No father figure, bad influences growing up, possibly buggered by his mentors. He may be self-loathing. He hates the system that created him and wants to lash out and destroy everything.

Obama spoke about this case before he saw Zimmerman’s picture. I am convinced of that. Zimmerman was supposed to be an Aryan looking skinhead, and that fact that he isn’t is what has this farce all wee wee’d up for the President. That Zimmerman isn’t exactly white has paradoxically caused whites to rally to at least the defense of justice, if not to the defense of Zimmerman himself.

I heard Zimmerman woke up this morning and said: “Coleman, I had the most absurd nightmare. I was poor and no one liked me. I lost my job, my house, Penelope hated me and it was all because of this terrible, awful negro.”

Given the interval between the shooting and when it started to become a big new story, with Al Sharpton and others weighing in, it's possible that someone on Obama's team contacted Sharpton first to get the ball rolling...just as the White House political team may have been involving in bringing forth Sandra Fluke to gin up the "birth control" issue.

So far it has worked--the black vote is going to be even more solidly in Obama's pocket and perhaps more likely to turn out, and the trial will probably be after the election.

The media keeps stating "facts" which are either false or very dubious as if true, and so a lot of whites will buy the story that Zimmerman was a racist vigilante. The minority of whites who would have voted for Obama anyway may not be diminished much by this story.

On Fox, Judge Pirro is openly anti-Zimmerman, and Ted Baxter keeps repeating dubious parts of the MSM narrative as fact (like that Zimmerman "stalked" Martin).

More than several thousand is more likely. I live in Tidewater VA and between the 5 major cities in the region there is at least one black kid shot by another black kid every day. At least half get killed. Once a month there's an innocent bystander shot and sometimes killed. 2 weeks ago it was a 4 year old toddler sitting on the couch in her father's house. I didn't notice any candle light vigils for her. No black preachers crying out for justisssssss! No a-hole congressman showing up on the House floor in footy pajama's like she was wearing when the bullet struck her.

The media really messed up here. They just heard the name Zimmerman and assumed lilly white. But now we look at the guy in court with the high cheekbones and brown complexion and it ruins everything.

"If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon."

He was stupid to say that. Any black person who don't realize he is WAY on their side is too stupid to care about anything. It just got him into trouble with all the non-black folks (except the lefties). But he always has been one to rub our noses in it. He just can't resist.

I spotted an innacuracy in your post #7. The photo of the black kid toward the bottom in the wifebeater shirt with the dart board clock in the background is not Trayvon Martin. That is Tyrone Woodfork, the perp in the beating/robbery/rape of the elderly couple that left the wife dead.
