Ted Nugent blames Trayvon Martin for shooting in George Zimmerman case
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ^ | July 15, 2013 | Ethan Sacks

Full title: Ted Nugent blames Trayvon Martin for shooting in George Zimmerman case, calling late teen 'a dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe'

Controversial rocker says Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Black Panthers, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder made case about race when it's 'clear-cut self-defense.'

Ted Nugent wasted no time in providing ammunition to further stoke tensions over the George Zimmerman case.

The conservative rocker and NRA board member took aim at the controversy surrounding a Florida jury’s not guilty verdict in the shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin -- calling the teen victim a “dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.”

In a column for the right-leaning site Rare, Nugent wrote the prosecutors were pressured into bringing a trial when it was obvious “cut and dried self-defense.”

“The race-baiting industry saw an opportunity to further the racist careers of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Black Panthers, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, et al, who then swept down on the Florida community refusing to admit that the 17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe Trayvon Martin was at all responsible for his bad decisions and standard modus operendi of always taking the violent route,” wrote Nugent.

“Trayvon had no reason not to attack, because it was the standard thug thing to do. See Chicago any day of the week.”

As tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and several other cities to protest the verdict, Nugent later told Newsmax that Martin was solely at fault for escalating the confrontation that ultimately led to his own death.

The “Cat Scratch Fever” guitarist — a polarizing figure who called for arming teachers after the Sandy Hook massacre and is reportedly considering a bid for the White House in 2016 — called for the disbarment of the entire prosecution team for bringing the Zimmerman case to trial.

“Smart and honest America rejoices that the jury got it right,” Nugent said. “This was the purest case of self-defense you could have ever asked for.”

Martin would have been alive today if he had done 1 of two things.

He could have simply stopped and spoken to Zimmerman like an adult or he could have run and kept running till he got home.

Instead he chose to lie in wait. He chose poorly.

He’s right. TM attacked and assaulted the wrong person. Period.

Also, “tens of thousands” took to the street. First of all Time Square has thousands every weekend and most were just standing watching the spectacle.

In my neighborhood, it sounded like the 4th of July after the verdict was read.

. . . calling the teen victim a “dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.”

Not a diplomatic way to phrase it, for sure. But is any part of that statement factually wrong?

Yes...and I would add that anyone who stands for right should be fairly strong and know at least some martial art. A few rapid boxing combos after a quick duck of the initial punch and Martin would have been intimidated.

That is what GZ said. We really do no know what happened for sure. 5. GZ can stay in hid truck and let the cops see if this guy was up to something. GZ did not even know the name of the street. How would he know if TM should be there or nol?

There’s nothing “nice” about refusing to believe your own lyin’ eyes, and to believe the famously mendacious pinhead liberal media instead. And to give the hypocritical race-baiting fools like Sharpton and Jackson (et. al.) a pass. Screw ‘em.

My issue isn't with Nugent. It's with the New York Daily News (i.e. media) accusing somebody else of "stoking tensions" in the case.

Here is the complete footage of Zimmerman himself walking several detectives through the complex and explaining second by second what happened.

You may choose to believe him or not, but the autopsy and forensics reports do not contradict anything he says in this 12 minute video, and eye witness accounts support Zimmerman's description of the events. Police also say his story never varied.

Indeed.

Trayvon Martin died as a direct result of being a violent criminal, and he died during the act of being a violent criminal and he was killed during that act by his victim.

He got on the spot justice and karma, and I really don’t see how a civilized society could ask for anything more or better than that.

“You do not know that for sure. That is just what GZ said happened.”

Zimmerman passed a lie detector, was tricked into believing the entire event was videotaped (and was happy about it), and all the physical evidence and actual witnesses supported his versions of the events.

Nugent is “stoking tensions” and “adding ammunition” to the situation. Meanwhile Sharpton, Jackson, and all the rest of the Hate Whitey crowd are doing what? Calming troubled waters? Bridging the racial divide? Making peace in the Brotherhood of Man?

Yep. It’s the rare white conservative voice that’s aggravating a tense condition.

The State of Florida Prosecutor’s office also COVERED UP that Travon Martin had kiddie porn on his cell phone, as well as pics of him menacingly holding a handgun. But, their IT guy testified to the truth, and was then FIRED for that!!

Indeed. Imagine the “teachable moment” if GZ had been convicted - irrational anger among young black males is justifiable, and there should be no consequences when they initiate violence? The left is crying that young blacks are in peril as a result of this verdict. The truth is the opposite. Suspicion, fair or unfair, is not what’s causing so many young blacks to die violent deaths. Uncontrollable, irrational rage is.

After Zimmerman had gotten out of his vehicle, the Non-emergency operator ASKED him if he was following the “suspect”. Zimmerman answered yes, and the operated stated, “You don’t need to do that”. Zimmerman was NEVER ordered fto stay in his vehicle.

No, he was speaking to the 911 operator, and according TO that operator:

Noffke explained to the jury that as a 911 dispatcher, he is unable to issue direct orders to callers due to liability issues.
911 dispatcher Sean Noffke takes the stand

No legal offical gave Zimmerman any kind of order whatsoever. That's just more of the media spin.

Nope, it was the phone dispatcher, not the cops. And Zimmerman was already out of the car when this was said: "We don't need you to do that." or something very similar. And when she told him that he turned around and headed back toward his car. It was after that that he was attacked.

NO. Only the 911 dispatcher said that, not a true peace officer. And George was under NO legal obligation to comnply. He had a right to walk where he wanted, just as Travon was.

Did you actually listen to the trial? Zimmerman did not disobey any order. The non-emergency operator asked, after Zimmerman was already out of his truck (you can hear the door shut on the call)and moving outside, “Are you following?” Zimmerman said he was, and the operator then replied, “We don’t need you to do that.” Zimmerman said, “Okay.” The operator did not order, “Stop immediately” or “Don’t follow”. “We don’t need you to do that” is not an order. After that question, the operator continued to ask questions better answered from outside the truck.

Let's get this right: it was not 911; it was the Non-Emergency Number (NEN) operator/dispatcher.

He had already instructed Zimmerman to "let us know what he's doing," which would imply a direction to maintain visual contact.

Martin walked PAST Zimmerman's parked car and stared Zimmerman down. THEN, Martin ran between two buildings, so that Zimmerman, still seated in his car, could no longer see him.

Zimmerman exited his car to try and see where Martin went.

It was THEN that the NEN operator asked Zimmerman if he was following the suspicious person. Zimmerman replied, "yes."

The NEN operator then said, "we don't need you to do that," to which Zimmerman replied, "OK."

Zimmerman then looked for a house number to direct the responding LE officers, and it was then he claims Martin confronted and attacked him.

You have to read the 911 transcript between GZ & the 911 dispatcher, rather than reading the biased media & Low-Information demoRATs or liberals.

The cops NEVER told GZ to remain in the car, as he was on the phone with the 911 DISPATCHER, not a policeman.

Dispatcher.. Where are you?
GZ.. Following him
Dispatcher.. I wouldn't recommend that
GZ.. Ok (and turns back to return to his car)
TM.. confronts GZ and says "You got a problem?"
GZ.. No, I don't have a problem
TM.. You do now (and procedes to punch GM, break GM's nose, jumps on top of GM and procedes to bash GM's head on the concrete sidewalk)
GM.. feels like his head is ready to explode as TM bashes his head again & again. When TM realizes that GM is carrying a gun, he tries to take it, GM retrieves it instead and fires a single shot, killing TM in self-defense as GM felt his life was at stake.

.
It is a FALSE statement that the police ever told GM to stay in the vehicle.

Ted Nugent “further stoked tensions.” I do not have the time to research The Daily News’ articles on Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the New Improved Black Panthers stoking tensions. Ethan Sacks has an embarrassing brown stain on his nose.
