Obama, top Democrats lay low as Martin story shifts
The Daily Caller ^ | Mar 29, 2012 | Neil Munro

Posted on 03/30/2012 3:06:09 AM PDT by expat1000

Top Democrats — including President Barack Obama’s re-election team — are now keeping their distance from the Trayvon Martin uproar, as each day reveals more facts about the teen’s slaying.

“As more facts come out, it’s more confusing for folks,” Sharon Gilpin, a Democratic political consultant, told The Daily Caller.

“There was a pretty intense rush to judgment … [but] it is important to get all your facts before you cement your feet in the sidewalk,” said Gilpin, who has worked on numerous Democratic campaigns and ballot initiatives.

“As tragic as this death is, there obviously is another side to the story,” former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis told TheDC. “We would all do well to wait for the facts to emerge.”

N.B.C. played an edited version of the 911 tape that Zimmerman made. Their version had Zimmerman saying, “I think he’s black”. The part that was edited out by N.B.C. was the 911 operator asking Zimmerman whether the criminal was black or hispanic. He simply answered the question.

Makes a huge difference doesn’t it?

-- There's a liberal judge down there who is saying that she doesn't need a grand jury indictment, that she can do it herself. --

I think you are referring to the independent investigator, who has said she can probably reach the correct conclusion without empaneling a grand jury. That would indicate that she could exonerate, because in order to charge, she'll need a grand jury; at least as cover or validation that the "enough evidence to find guilt beyond a reasonable doubt" conclusion is not hers alone.

It certainly does , because it's obvious from the recording that Zimmerman's suspicions are based solely upon behavior, and editing out the question makes it look like race played a factor in those suspicions. Even after he gives the ethnicity and description of Martins' clothes, solicited by the officer, Zimmerman continues his observation of Martin based solely upon behavior, and he actually does a pretty decent job of it, if you ask me.

Shameful and disgraceful doesn't even cover it...

His father is not Jewish. The family are Roman Catholic. Members of the church they attended in Manassas, VA spoke positively about the family. George was an altarboy and church receptionist. Zimmerman is German not just Jewish.

There certainly are a lot of SOB's in the news lately.

SOB's = Sons Of Barack

SENECA, SC (FOX Carolina) - Seneca police said they arrested six men Wednesday in connection with the beating of a Franklin, NC, man outside a restaurant earlier this month.

From top-left to lower-right:Teryn Robinson, 18, Tray Holland, 19, Justin Alexander, 20, Derick Williams, 22, Kino Jones, 25, and Montrez Jones, 22. (Seneca Police Dept.)

And the man they beat was white.

Another SOB

Tyrone Dale David Woodfork

A medical exam showed that Nancy Strait had been sexually assaulted, and police found Bob Strait with a wound on his face caused by a BB gunshot, according to the police report. Both had blunt-force trauma to their heads, the report says.

Another SOB

16 YEAR OLD NICHOLAS LINDSEY CONFESSES TO KILLING ST. PETERESBURG POLICE OFFICER DAVID S. CRAWFORD

The suspect was described as a black male in his late teens or early 20s last seen wearing a dark-colored hoodie.

And the latest SOB

Right. The so-called “mainstream” media has been writing the script on this incident since it first began. It’s amazing how far they will go to brazenly lie and misinform without a shred of conscience in order to get the political effect they are hoping for —— black Americans rushing to the polls to vote for Obama again this Novemeber. The aftermath of this charade almost guarantees it. I guess all the internal polling is revealing an indifference among potential black voters this season. Nothing like stirring up the ol’ pot of hate and racism to get the black folk to the polls on election day.
Only problem for the lying, instigators in the media, death threats against innocent people and the possibility of someone who is really and truly innocent being injured or murdered because of their phony, irresponsible fabrications are now a real possibility.

Rush seems to be highlighting an incidence of black on white crime (murder) on a daily basis. We should echo that on FR, post pictures of the perps to remind people that they all look like Obama’s son. Shove that phrase down his throat all the way to the election.


That is exactly what we must do. They are inciting the lynching and murders of innocent white people in their power hate games and diversity doctrines.

Exposing the reality to white young people that diversity’s black rage and racism is not harmless, would be a great service to the country. This generation needs to learn what the white boomers learned the hard way. The Left tribalist resentment and hate is not without real consequences for the targets.

In tribalist nations, the cycle of resentment and violent revenge never stops and what black leftists turn around in rage and violence at whites, will come back onto blacks. Tribal revenge is a cycle that never stops. See Africa and the Middle East.

” The whole thing has a “Duke lacrosse” smell to it. “

As I recall, after time and agony, those fellows did collect a lot of $$$ - which of course never covers it all.

While I am here, this idea has been in my head as a way to bring public attention to black on white crime. With a bit of pushing, maybe it could eventually get constant national attention. Seeing what some have here posted, I decided to now try to explain my thoughts.

My heart just breaks seeing the suffering that innocent people, and their families, must bear when these atrocious things happen to them.

Thinking that the least a group of caring folk could do is make a financial donation to help out.

So why not begin a FUND for this purpose. Said fund would begin a list and keep a list of each of these sick crimes. Complete with pics of perps.

And make it PUBLIC - real public. Every time another happens, publish it again - every place. Remind people AGAIN.

Call it something catchy, like “BLACK ON WHITE SICK CRIME FUND.”

Imagine if Rush, Hannity et al began each show and top of every hour with a request for donations for a NEW BLACK ON WHITE SICK CRIME ... too horrible to decribe to you, my listeners.

After a while maybe it would go viral - even covered by LSM.

Maybe even 0 would step in it again - so to speak.

Even maybe Rush would get cr-—fied again.

When they heard the name George Zimmerman of Florida the Left immediately thought they had an eighty year old retired Jewish Democrat accountant originally from Queens New York. They thought maybe George Zimmerman was a runaway from the Democrat’s Jewish plantation (Bob Dylan’s real name is Zimmerman after all) who had gone NRA gun toting Republican TEA partier on them.

They were wrong.

George Zimmerman is a 28 year old self identified brown skinned Hispanic Democrat who they wish was an NRA member. He tutors Black children in his home and is not a TEA partier.

They looked at the picture of Trayvon Martin and fooled themselves into believing he was an angelic youth headed for Harvard someday. Instead they got a budding thug who had a series of scrapes with authorities that included possession of burglary tools and drug possession.

They thought they could find evidence that Zimmerman was on top of Martin punching him and calling him the “N” word. Instead they have an eye witness backing up Zimmerman’s claim of self defense and the “N” charge is just a dream.

They thought his neighbors would tell reporters Zimmerman hated Blacks. Instead they have a Black character witness for Zimmerman and his Black friends and family.

They thought they would have a White Police Chief who would kiss their feet to keep peace – and his job. They lost that on day two. They now have Black Chief so that angle is gone.

They thought they would have two justifiably shell shocked parents who would do whatever they were told. Instead they got a pair of opportunists who have even less shame than would be Puppet Masters Sharpton and Jackson. They have copyrighted their son’s name and quit their jobs to promote the sale of “Trayvon” merchandise.

They thought they could bring in the Black Panthers to scare White people then go away. Instead they got the Panthers putting a bounty on Zimmerman and threatening to burn down Detroit.

They thought Zimmerman would be living in a “Lilly White” gated fortress that screamed “Minorities keep out.” Instead they got a community that is more than half non White.

They thought they could get Black celebrities to jump in and add strength and lust to their circus of lies. Instead they got a dimwitted Spike Lee tweeting a wrong address for the lynch mob to descend upon ,and Lee is now on his way to a nasty losing lawsuit.

They thought they could get a bunch of Black high school kids to peacefully march to protest what had happened to “Brother Trayvon.” What they got was a pack of wilding animals who ransacked a Walgreens after their march.

Now they are all so eager to wear hoodies to show they are “down for the struggle.” Do you want to bet the hoodies end up being made in non union sweatshops in some third world country?

This is too rich.

Hey FReepers: Post #81 from GOPJ is AWESOME. That needs to be e-mailed to everyone in your e-mail address book, put on Facebook, Twitter......... That word needs to be gotten out.

I pray that the PD there in FL that is investigating this case will NOT cave to political pressure from the likes of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louie Farrakhan and the Black Panthers. Check out Post #81.
