Sculptured unreality (Truth vs. Lies in the Zimmerman case)
Human Events ^ | August 20, 2013 | John Hayward

As a resident of Florida, I had the strange experience of hearing fairly accurate, or at least un-embellished, reports of the Trayvon Martin incident for a day or two before the national media B.S. steamroller got moving – transforming George Zimmerman into a white (later “white Hispanic”) gun nut from a posh “gated community” who hunted down an apple-cheeked 12-year-old black boy and murdered him for sport. There’s no big mystery behind why the national media got so much of this story wrong. They tend to reflexively believe stories that fit into their pre-fabricated narratives, and they accept reports from certain accredited left-leaning “activists” without question.

Once Trayvon mythology was well-established, the story got huge, and national political figures became involved, the more egregious media bungles were deliberate efforts to protect and advance what they had already created. Later, I suspect many national media figures grew reluctant to take that Trayvon mythology away from activists they sympathized with. The press doesn’t want to spend a lot of time telling celebrated civil-rights leaders they’re all wet. A few fudged facts are a small sacrifice to offer the gods of Greater Truth.

The aftermath of George Zimmerman’s acquittal on all charges was supposed to include a federal civil rights prosecution, copiously promised by Attorney General Eric Holder, coupled with a surge of political energy against Stand Your Ground laws. There’s not much to say about the former… which is rather odd, isn’t it? Remember all that sturm und drang about federal prosecution, complete with a tip line every man, woman, and child in America could access to submit evidence of George Zimmerman’s racism? How’s that coming along, AG Holder?

As for the anti-Stand Your Ground movement, it’s not doing well, either....

It's exasperating.

The recent cases of the black 17 year old teen shooting a white baby in the stroller and the shooting of Mr Lane, the Australian Baseball player by a 15 year old teen , show us that we must all be George Zimmerman.

Since we’ve bought almost enough firearms since 2008 to arm every adult in Japan, I think people are taking your advice.

The national media was fed a prepared, carefully orchestrated tale. They didn't invent it, they just couldn't be bothered to investigate it. It fit their political persuasion, and fed their need for something sensational, so they just took it and ran with it.

One somewhat humorous aspect was all the navel gazing they ended up doing when the facts kept conflicting with their narrative. Major cognitive dissonance there. In the end, they resolved it by just falling back on the narrative.

The reporting was so bad that when you try to inform some folks with the truth they will call you a racist.

Nicely written little article, for some reason it made me think of National Review of 25 plus years ago.

Subject:The Dual Purpose for the “Targeting” of George Zimmerman

The truth and dual purpose behind the Zimmerman persecution .. The regime and the media set the premise for the trial narrative and their presentations ignoring the setting where the incident took place..An area having a “Neighborhood Watch” and the person working security just doing his job...

What were the purposes in politicizing the event ?..The first was to gin up the base for purposes explained herein but there was another second agenda..

If some of those so called conservative talk show hosts had interviewed guests who run such watches and had the courage to fight PC and defend Zimmerman they would have exposed the regime and the media for the frauds they are. The few who are still “milking this” by accepting black callers. Fail to cite the simple facts outlined and documented here,. and to ask them what has Obama done for you? Then respectfully dismiss them as unfortunately being used and deliberately mis-informed..

Particularly a “gated” neighborhood watch.When you enter one of these and start wandering around no matter if you are white, blue, red, green, or black. You can be asked your purpose for being there. You are on private property. And yes those on patrol can and do leave their vehicle and follow on foot if they lose sight of the person they’re observing..That’s the Watch Captain’s who is really a security guard’s job.

It’s the second time the President of the United States has interjected himself into a confrontation between those in authority on legal grounds reasonably questioned and released someone involved in a curious activity in a patrolled area. Could this attitude be based from the idealized communist concept that there is no such thing as “private” property because the state (collective) owns the land ? and is the second purpose of selecting this episode to paint a target on Zimmerman’s back

In both cases those representing “authority” were reported as “white” . In the second case the person working security was attacked on private rights of way while on foot who discontinued an observation and was returing to his vehicle after being suggested by the police to do so. Legally he could have approached Saint Trayvon but didn’t..The hooded tall figure was allowed to continue on his way.unimpeded. But didn’t. That figure turned out to be a Martin Trayvon who doubled back and attacked the “neighborhood watch” worker as he was returing to his vehicle. Knocked him to the ground and began beating him severly. Saint Trayvon, the attacker, was subsequently killed in a struggle over the Neighborhood Watchman’s legal pistol.

In the second case both were dark skined.

The facts of this case are still being shamefully being concealed by the media to the extent they are advancing and are complicit in permitting a putrid injstice of the worst order,organized and instituted by our governent, to be committed .While denied. It began as a miscalculation when a surname of a Jewish origin shot up and lighted the heavens like a star shell in the darkest of nights. It would have been difused if the media used pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. And the area where this occured of paycheck to paycheck struggling homeowners of all races trying to protect themselves had been reported and not some ritzy all white enclave.they portrayed..Worse yet the media is still pilling it on with ABC editing a a black jury members (remember when they were all white)t remarks to make it sound like she accused Zimmerman of murder .

The result as we have seen is that another marxist axiom (division) has been implemented which has resulted with gangs of black youths murdering happless whites and “hispanics” who happen into areas usually where a black population is the majority. Those media outlets who by their delberate misuse of the instrument of the 1st amendment are just as complicit in those deaths as the regime is. They had the duty but not the obligation to verify and report factually but instead quoted the reports from various “mainlining” socialist media sources: Some examples here all of which serve the first purpose of selecting Zimmerman as the target.

The Secondary Purpose

Using propaganda from the party that hypenated itself from God at their 2012 convention into demo-coms, and believe that all groups should be hyphenated , Afro-American, Hispanic-American, etc..Decided Zimmerman to be the egg that is to be broken,. sacrificed, so that we have an omlet..

Just like Stalin did to the Ukrainian land owners known as Kulacks whom he executed, (and used that egg example) in a soclal engineering plan to organize collectives during a Russian drought..Because as we have learned there seems to be the intention to use a collective data base to create collectives.where a utopia of uniforimity of conformity exists. As was done in Detroit, and Oakland California.only this time a poor whitey or blacky won’t be able to move.

Just as with the energy plan where the cost of fuel used for energy and transportation and that includes raising the price of transporting gas and oil by rail, that favors a key contributer (Buffett) while the regime has been recently ridiculing the impact the completion of a pipeline, has skyrocketed those costs. Placing many on fixed or limited incomes dependent on government handouts. Resulting from this regimes socialist policies which go blameless. Now call for the sacrifice of Zimmerman who must die for another communist plan.. We all move together in centers designed and approved by comrades running the collective who (just like Obamacare aren’t in it) won’t ever live there.

What could the first purpose be ?

What better way to cover up Bengahzi, Fast and furious, IRS, Wind and Solar panel gate, NSA spying on US, Over-riding the constittution? Don’t look into who accompaines Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the president’s hand isn’t that pay back at US taxpayer expence?. Isn’t that an impeachable offense ??

Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. Get to your black base voters, whom you’ve done nothing for,.all worked up. Pick on some security guard who’s doing his job. Accuse him of being racist ,even though he is part black..But his last name sounds “jewish.”Who’s doing surveilance in an mixed race area of modest means a where there’s been robberies and burgalries by young blacks. Now call that surveilance stalking, the area he’s patrolling owned by rich whities,and the guard of course he’s white.That person he’s watching a 10 year old black kid and a saint ,not six foot two 165 pound 16 year old, who gets killed fighting over a gun. . Now put a target on the security guards back .Ain’t that neat ? What better way to discourage any investigation into malfeasance and corruption by organizing the base for riots in the streets ? Think it’s too far fetched ? Think it’s not working ? Look again

To date the political opposition known as Republican has yet to mention or comment on this example of how this regime operates. Time to ask them why ?

Good piece. For me, the worst aspect of the Zimmerman-inspired unreality was measured in this poll result:

Eighty-six percent of blacks disapprove of the Zimmerman verdict.

I simply don't know what to do with that level of willful ignorance and gullibility. I understand that the MSM runs an effective propaganda machine, but it only takes a few mouse clicks or a quick channel change to Fox to get a different perspective.

Eighty-six percent.

By the way, let's not pretend that the Zimmerman affair is over. He is still alive, and the fatwa is still in effect. After he is murdered, there will be dancing in the streets -- and Obama and Holder might join in.

I'm with you there - that and the 95% who voted in lockstep for Obama.
