Was it an Obama 2012 Hoodie?

Obama flamed the fire at the beginning then ran and hid under Moochelle’s skirt.

“Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor”
Did Robert Byrd comply with this?

It is a shame that Bobby Rush is politicizing the tragedy of the young man’s death like this.

He shames his office.

Several members of the Congressional Black Caucus have taken to the House floor for the last week to call for the arrest of George Zimmerman

Are they also calling for Spike Lee's arrest, who published what he thought was Zimmerman's address on the Internet, only to find that it was the address of an elderly couple who are now forced from their home thanks to death threats, hate mail, etc?

Spike Lee should at least be sued for the expenses he has now put this blameless couple through.

Imagine if they try to sell their house. It’s now probably unsellable.

The suit should account for the cost of the house.

While it’s terrible that this kid got killed, how can we extrapolite from this one incident that black youth are at great danger from racists with guns???

Thousands of black kids and young men are killed every year by other black men with guns. Much of it is gang violence.

If the issue that “our children” (black children) are being killed, shouldn’t these guys turn their attention to the pandemic of gang violence in the black community????

While tragic that this one kid was killed, this incident is so rare, that you wonder about the reasoning which says that the greatest risk to black youth is a racist with a gun.

Stop racial profiling? So then is black on black crime is not a cause for concern, because that’s not a matter of racist whites attacking blacks? What are we saying???

Calling George Zimmerman a "white-Hispanic" is extreme racial profiling, breaking race into sub-categories.

But it's OK to be racist against Whitey.

Spike Lee will never be held accountable for his actions in this case.

Spike Lee is a member of an officially recognized aggrieved group. He’s supporting the latest liberal cause celebre. A member of a politically correct protected aggrieved group, advocating for some liberal cause, never faces any consequences.

It would be nice if Spike Lee would do the right thing, but he won’t.

He's right. Breaking someone's nose and bashing their head against the sidewalk does, however.

That right there is frightening. What if next time they ask for your arrest, or mine, for something they think we should be arrested for? A Congressman is demanding a private citizen's arrest.

This is out of control.

Hate to burst the liberals’ and racist’s bubble, but they are being played by a disingenuous media that has created a non-controversy.

At the risk of being flamed or banned, based on the facts I have been able to discover about this story, Zimmerman acted in self-defense and Trayvon was the aggressor who ended up getting what he deserved. Sorry to speak ill of the dead and I’m sorry that Trayvon got killed but, the evidence all supports Zimmerman’s side of the story.

IMO, it is inappropriate for elected representatives in the Congress to get sucked into these media-generated messes.

Neither you nor anyone else knows that to be certain. The fat lady will sing in June and we can cross these bridges then, if need be.

For now, however, we are in what we called in the Navy, "standby to standby" mode.

Wouldn’t do for me to be a congressman. I’d be censured daily and probably jailed for knocking the crap out of little snots like Weiner and Kennedy. I’m sure there are some who took their place.

I’d also get in trouble for wearing a “Zimmerman - NOT GUILTY!” t-shirt.

We definitely need some white “leaders” standing up to these racists attacks.

Why should you fear being banned when we have FReepers who are making inflammatory and scandalous $hit up out of whole cloth?

A FReeper posted as "fact" that the Sanford PD officers and Zimmerman were "laughing and smoking" after the shoot and refuses to either provide a source link or to retract the statement.

An out and out, deliberate lie, yet he's still posting.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.

The black race baiters on the Hill have got to get their ineffectual licks in before Mr. Zimmerman is arrested. Taken before a grand jury and maybe, charged with discharging a firearm in a residential area.

so the black caucus is wanting Zimmermann arrested, er why, we have our laws here in FL and Zimmermann stood his ground when getting beaten, maybe they need to understand our laws first.

Now wearing a hoodie on the house floor, for crying out loud this is congress, an elected official not some play ground where street rules go, .

What an immature thing to do, next we’;ll have another black rep trying to outdo this child.

Lets do this, we;ll jump on one of them, beat them to a pulp, if we get shot and die then we’;ll get white hate groups coming in and demanding that the black guy be arressted , also kidnapped and given street justice.
Well have a white racist in the DOJ and lets see how they like it.

Now black caucus how many blacks died in the last week by blacks or how many whites died from blacks?

It is not gang violence that kills so many Black young folks. It is the breakdown of the Black family unit, ensuing drug use, out of wedlock births, multiple abortions, poor education caused by greedy/thug teacher unions and poor community leadership, greedy & power hungry failed Black Leadership, from Obama on down, and worst of all.....the total failure to the Black community to properly identify the problem, which by the way, is not racism, but a failure of Black society to effectively assimilate into the diverse American society. A look in the mirror and some blunt truthful acceptance of reality, would be a true first step into addressing the problem.

Failure to do that, and continuing support of current Black leaders like Obama, etc. will continue to support life on The Obama Plantation of economic slavery and endless poverty and despair fro masses of American Blacks. Yes, the truth hurts, but....the truth is the truth!!! Actually, when one objectively studies this situation, it is only the Blacks that have not successfully woven themselves into the general American society. Hispanics, Orientals, Indians, Arabs, Jews, Whites have all done just fine when compared against Blacks.

“He shames his office.”

Shame is largely responsible for ensuring social decency, at least as it was formerly known. To suffer shame requires common values and a sense of communal belonging.

And therein lies the essence of our Dem overlords: they are shameless; they cannot be shamed. Their allies in the press condone and reinforce the shamelessness. Think of the daily affronts to decency recounted here at FR....

Equally important: liberals use shame against conservatives (or anyone with traditional values) because it works. Look at what it has done to the field of possible conservative candidates. Who’d want to run when the media playing field is so overwhelmingly directed at shaming conservatives?!

Yep, Santorum has been wrong on the Trayvon Martin/ George Zimmerman issue, but I’d rather have someone who is wrong on that issue, than someone who is wrong on issues as fundamental as universal healthcare, and the EPA and the economy.

The EPA and Cap and trade are tied to the economy as intricately as the healthcare law.

Newt Gingrich cannot win and Santorum is our single best hope in defeating Obamacare.
