Skip to comments.The Death of Trayvon Martin: Is There Nothing Progressives Won’t Exploit?
Posted on 03/25/2012 12:51:36 AM PDT by Kaslin
A 17-year-old kid is shot dead. Police are investigating and progressives see an opportunity. The Trayvon Martin case, in addition to being a tragedy, is a case study in political exploitation and progressive tactics.
The shooting death of a 17-year-old is horrible, whatever the circumstances and no matter their race. But progressives seem to care about this case only because of the race of the victim. There are thousands of murders that dont fit the bill for exploitation and thus are ignored by these self-appointed justice seekers.
What happened that night? I dont know. But neither do any of the race hustlers, such as Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, who speak of it as if they are clairvoyant. They care deeply about Trayvons family as long as there are cameras around.
This lack of actual knowledge doesnt stop progressives many of whom call for due process rights and the presumption of innocence for terror suspects in Guantanamo Bay from demanding the head of George Zimmerman, the shooter in this case.
The hypocrisy runs deep.
I understand the tragedy here but not the selective outrage. There are thousands of murders in this country each year. How many have you heard of? A large percentage of those murder victims are younger than 30. How many have you heard of? Only a few.
How many cause people to take to the streets in protest? How many occupy a large portion of cable news? How many do these progressives screaming for the head of George Zimmerman ever mention on their TV or radio shows?
You know the answer.
For progressives to care about someone who has been killed there must be an ulterior motive. In the case of Trayvon Martin, there are many.
First, race. That news outlets cant talk about this case without mentioning Trayvons race is a testament to how successful progressives have been in instilling a segregationist mindset in the media. That they rarely mention the shooters race is a testament to just how far progressives will go to exploit tragedy to advance their divide and conquer agenda. Zimmerman is Hispanic, not white, as originally thought. Since the race-hustling machine was already in motion and impossible to stop, they and their fellow travellers in the media simply ignore it.
Bill Maher, HBOs resident crap-flinging monkey, tweeted, No probable cause in #TrayvonMartin murder? If a dead unarmed teen and an angry racist with a smoking gun is too subtle a clue, what isn't?
Is Zimmerman a racist? I have no idea (his father and neighbor say no), but I do know Bill Maher has no idea either. But that doesnt stop progressive Maher from making a definitive statement on the issue. Facts dont matter in pursuit of the agenda.
Second, policy. Progressives always have hated Floridas Stand Your Ground self-defense law. This case offered an opportunity to demonize it, and they took it even though it does not apply to this case. Zimmerman wasnt standing his ground; he was following Martin. Whatever happened when they engaged in their confrontation is a separate matter.
But again, facts dont matter. The fascist progressives blame the law, almost as much as the shooter, for Martins death. Before any investigation is complete, calls for repeal (which were there before the shooting) are getting louder and louder. Mindless media drones and the professionally outraged progressive mob are calling for repeal. Screw facts; they demand action.
Third, politics. The one thing progressives value above all else is political power. They will dance on Trayvon Martins grave to keep people divided into the groups and sub-groups theyve worked so hard to create and manipulate.
Media Matters, a fascistic group of anti-First Amendment progressives whose mission is allegedly to correct conservative bias in the media, has been promoting the Trayvon Martin story. What bias is there in this case? No one, right or left, doesnt consider this a tragedy. Its just that some dont want to call for more blood without an investigation. But when Media Matters is involved, you can bet the Democrat Party is pulling the strings. Enter MSNBC.
MSNBCs lineup is a whos who of detestable bigots and professional hatemongers whose only goal in life is to advance the progressive agenda at all costs. Rather than focus on the life of Trayvon or the tragedy of his death, MSNBC had a segment entitled The GOP agenda that produced Stand Your Ground laws. The dots were laid out so plainly even most of their intelligence-challenged audience could connect them GOP pushed Stand Your Ground, Stand Your Ground is responsible for Trayvons death, therefore the GOP is responsible for Trayvons death.
Since many of the uninformed who watch MSNBC need things spelled out for them because theyre too busy trying to figure out why they cant eat tomato soup with a fork, fill-in host and noted idiot racist Karen Finney went all-in. Mimicking the time progressives blamed Sarah Palin for the tragic Tucson shooting, only to have the insane man behind it be exposed as an anti-war, anti-Bush leftist, Finney blamed Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney for the death of Trayvon.
The only thing more disgusting than Finney knowingly (and believe me, she knows) exploiting the death of a 17-year-old for political purposes, or a news organization broadcasting that on their network is knowing of the other deaths and murders they willingly ignore because the victims, the perpetrators or both have the incorrect skin pigment to advance their agenda.
A human life is a human life to everyone well,, to everyone but progressives. To them, a human life is a tool, a toy, a means by which their anti-liberty, anti-American agenda can be advanced, provided those involved in taking it have the correct type and order of melanin, genitals or any other subdividing characteristics they deem worthy of outrage. The rest? The thousands who dont fit their mold? They can rot. They can rot just like those who fit the mold in the past, served their purpose and are now forgotten for new pawns.
The death of Trayvon Martin is a tragedy, just as the death of every person who passes in such a matter is a tragedy. How it came to be will be determined in the due course of an honest investigation, not by exploiting a familys tragedy for votes and ratings.
The only way to give Trayvon justice, for non-progressives still interested in such things, is to let the investigation lead where it goes, not pass the same prejudgment on George Zimmerman progressives accuse him of passing on Trayvon. Its time for progressives to stop dancing on Trayvon Martins grave, to stop dancing on the graves of all the victims they exploit, take off their bigoted blinders and join the rest of society.
They wont. They cant. Its who they are. So its up to the rest of us to help them at the ballot box by continually rejecting any and everyone who would seek to abuse victims for political gain. Especially when that trail leads to the White House.
The media doesn’t fear the people. That’s got to change.
Neither do the politicians. Both hold the people in contempt. And so long as the sheep are given enough “freebies” they remain pacified and serene. Awaiting the slaughter day.
During the same time....49 people were shot in Chicago. 10 killed including a 6yr. old....silence!
“...which is Communism, make no mistake...”
Bingo! You win the jackpot!!!!
Is There Nothing Progressives Wont Exploit?
Duke Lacrosse, Jena 6, OJ, Rodney King...
“They have no ethics or morals.”
The true characterization of a visceral, psychotic, adolescent, Pol Pot wannabe Progressive scu&bag.
Scu&mbag. Is that cursing to you? lol. I bow to your restraint. Biblical. I like that. Unfortunately, I cuss like all navies combined and squared w what I’m seeing.
Yes, they’ve failed us. I don’t think most of them meant to. The political game has defaulted back to medieval times. Bloodsport. Too much money involved.
“I bow to your restraint.”
And I salute you sir and hope that we never have to meet behind the barricades.
Layoffs and closings are now commonplace in the MSM.
You’d think that would get their attention.
Since it’s going to happen, I wish we could meet, brother. We both trust in Christ. All that matters.
Here's a good place to find out, along with the (often salty) opinion of the actual cops dealing with the casualties:
They’re scurrying somewhere or else we’d be hearing about it. They couldn’t get the point if you jabbed a pencil in their eye.
Best summation I’ve read on the subject! Excellent. BTTT.
It’s going to be a long hot summer.
I recently read David Horowitz’s autobiography, “Radical Son.” This is going on the very short list of books that shape my perspective on events in a comprehensive way, with Thomas Sowell’s “Knowledge and Decisions” and John Gatto’s “Underground History of American Education.”
Whittaker Chambers’s “Witness” did the same for many readers a generation or so older than I. Horowitz is older than I am, but younger than my parents, and his book describes the events of my lifetime in a unique way.
I call him “Trayvon Vom Rath”, after Ernst Vom Rath, whose killing was the trigger for Kristallnacht.
the media lynching of Zimmerman is going on in Meet the Depressed this morning!!!!
shot dead for trying to beat a man to death on the ground. tThe correct title for this incident.
