Breitbart's Big Government ^ | August 9, 2013 | Tony Lee

Posted on 08/09/2013 8:21:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A mural of a man who looks like George Zimmerman shooting a likeness of Trayvon Martin was unveiled Friday at the state Capitol of Florida.

A mirror sits in the spot under a hoodie where Trayvon Martin's face would be, bordered by Martin Luther King, Jr.'s face decorated with streaks of blood....

It looks like it is on wheels...fine, wheel it down to the local waste pumping station and toss it in with the rest of the crap.

That the state even considered letting this piece of trash tarnish its halls is extremely aggravating.

Miami artist Huong created the 10-foot mural, which carries the message, "We are all Trayvon Martin."

Man, the devil is really wrought up over this shooting. I am wondering whether Zimmerman must have done something a lot better than he thought, maybe managed to kill the next would be Charles Manson except of color.

It’s bigger than people, Mikey. This looks like it is borne on the shoulders of the supernatural. There was some intensely bad juju going on with Trayvon is my gut sense here.

Considering that the hoodie figure face is a mirror so young blacks can get the feel of what it is for a person who “stands their ground” can do to you....

It might be a good thing....an object lesson on why not to be a hood rat like Trayvon....

Besides that it’s a disgusting piece of propaganda....

It’s the devil I say. Seriously. It would be a fascinating story to try to delve into what kind of occult or demonic connections Trayvon may have had. This is not a furor that a garden variety punk can generate.

I dare a white artist to make a painting of Trayvon Martin bashing Zimmerman’s skull into the cement. It would have never made it in the door.

Isn’t that scarily like how Muslims depict their prophet Muhammed? Not daring to show his face. Saint Skittles, indeed.

At the end of the Steven King Movie “Carrie”, her grave has been defaced with graffiti, which says, “Carrie White Burns in Hell”.

The movie was so iconic and memorable, I wonder what would happen if there was similar graffiti about Travon Martin.

Who is responsible for this, and was it allowed to remain there? It is slander, because it falsifies the circumstances of the shooting. Someone should be sued over this.

Why is "Zimmerman" standing up while firing when all evidence strongly suggests Zimmerman was on his back when he shot Trayvon?

Did Zimmerman assume a shooting stance and shoot Martin in the back of the head?

Exactly. Odd how much power this incident still holds over people of color. 100s of black on white crimes and barely a mention, if any. None if black on black.

I find it interesting that the head and face are uncovered, not hidden behind a hoodie.

Florida has a Republican governor and its legislature has large GOP majorities in both houses. So why do they tolerate such an outrage?

That exasperated citizen interviewed at the town hall meeting yesterday by a Fox News reporter was right when he complained that we are losing our country, but the Republicans that we elect refuse to fight back.

THAT would be an interesting piece of art:

“Piss Hoodie”.

Think the Florida GOP would allow it to be displayed in the state capitol?
