We’ve all heard about the murder of seventeen year old Trayvon Martin by now. He is the young man that was shot dead by a neighborhood watch guard.
The details of what happened are still too sketchy. Just about the only thing that ISN’T sketchy is the racial overtones devouring this case. You see, the surname of the shooter is Zimmerman and the victim is Black. One thing the mainstream, liberal media loves to do is to sensationalize White on minority crimes.
What we are now finding out about Zimmerman is that he is Hispanic; not White, and is from a multi-racial family. We are also finding out that the initial reports of him using racial slurs were incorrect. Although the racial overtones are glaring, and he has been labeled a racist, there is no evidence thus far to support the claim of racism.
Don’t get me wrong here; I’m not defending Zimmerman. Based on reports, he continued to follow Trayvon when he had been explicitly told not to. I feel but for that decision, Trayvon would not be dead today. And also based on reports, I’m of the opinion that the local police investigated the case poorly. Subsequent to the local police ruling the case self-defense, it appears that important details emerged that contradicts their determination.
I am prepared to allow the special prosecutor and FBI to cross all T’s and dot all I’s in this case. I want to see justice done just as much as anyone else. But because I’m a Conservative and refuse to be propelled by emotions like the vast majority of Blacks, I’ve been accused of being non-caring, not doing enough and standing with Whites (even though Zimmerman is Hispanic) and selling out the Black Community.
It is incredibly unfortunate when ANYONE is murdered. I’m saddened by the death of this young man, and I can not even begin to imagine what his parents must be feeling or their suffering. In 2010, 2,720 parents felt that unimaginable grief. That’s how many Blacks were murdered.
I still do not understand where the national media attention was for the murders of all those men, women and children; or Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton and the mob of angry, protesting Blacks! They mattered as much as Trayvon, right?
Other than abortion (roughly 15 million Black babies murdered, yes murdered, since Roe v. Wade), loss of life doesn’t get more innocent than that of a child’s caught by the stray bullet of a gang banger or drug dealer as they play in their yards or sit in their home watching TV.
Of those 2,720 Blacks murdered in 2010, 2,459 of them were murdered by Blacks. The Black on Black scenario is not exciting enough for the liberal media; nor is there a racial angle for the likes of Sharpton to exploit. In addition, the murderers of many of the victims go unpunished. Unlike the angry mobs that mobilize when a non-Black person kills a Black person, those who know anything about inner city murders are suddenly rendered mute. Hey, who likes a SNITCH? Only snitch if the killer is NOT Black!
Zimmerman may be a racist. It’s just that I have not seen evidence of it thus far. But, the media and the many Black folk ready to hang him without a trial sure seem to be preening some racial feathers.
Have you heard about the thirteen year old Kansas City White teen that was doused with gasoline and set on fire by several Black teens, as they yelled racial epithets? Probably not many of you have. It’s not sensational enough for liberal media.
Liberalism must continue racial divide to survive. Trayvon is sadly being used as a mere tool by the liberal game players, and just as sad and equally disgusting, his parent’s, and that giant, angry mob of Black folk are definitely being played.

Now that Rick Santorum is rising in the polls, and since he just rose from political murk to land a very taut second place finish in the Iowa Caucasus, the slander and smear machines are already cranking up to start tearing him down. Seems the moment a candidate becomes a blip on the political radar, they become targets. I knew it wouldn’t take long before the mud started to fly, but now I’m wondering just how fast it will take Republicans to tuck their tails and run from the controversy and accusations that are inevitable.
It doesn’t seem to matter if accusations are factual or fabricated. Many Republicans will quickly, and undoubtedly scurry off the scene when the going gets tough. Ask Herman Cain about that.
Liberals know good and well that all they have to do is call the GOP candidate a racist, a homophobe or in Cain’s case, a sex crazed womanizer, and not only will the candidate usually cave, but so will their supporters… with supporters usually being the first to throw in the towel! It seems we have not learned to hang in there when the going gets tough. I hate to say it, but we can learn a lot from Liberals when it comes to selecting a candidate, and sticking with them through thick or thin. If Obama had raped a toddler in a public square, liberal pundits would have spun the event successfully before Obama zipped his pants up. The voters, media, and all other Obama supporters would stick by him, and defend him to the bitter end.
I am in NO WAY suggesting that we should support ANY candidate under ANY circumstance. We must always be moral and prudent when choosing candidates for any office, but we should always have PROOF before we start dropping our candidates faster than a pimp drops a useless hoe. Dirty tactics will be employed by the masters of the game… expect it and be ready and most importantly, wait for the facts and demand proof of wrongdoing!
To give you an example of what the dirty Left is capable of, check out what was said about Santorum and how he handled the death of his baby boy, Gabriel. Gabriel was born in 1996, but died shortly after birth. The Santorums took their deceased baby home with them to make him a reality for their other children and to give him a funeral. Well, Lefty talk show host Alan Colmes stated that Santorum’s popularity would end once people realized some of the crazy things he has said and done. Colmes went on to discuss the 1996 death of little Gabriel this way…..
“once they get a load of some of the crazy things he’s said and done, like taking his two-hour-old baby who died right after childbirth home and played with it for a couple hours so his other children would know that the child was real…”
Vile words, said in a vile context and with a vile intent, don’t you think? But I suppose honoring Gabriel and treating him like a part of the family (which he was) would be crazy to someone who supports killing babies by ripping them out of the mother’s womb. There’s certainly much, much more to come from the morally destitute Lefties. Don’t believe me? Check out this video of Santorum making a “racist” comment:
I realize that the GOP candidates not only run against their liberal opponents, but they are also fighting a liberal media, and the smear-mongers. Let’s not make them fight for our support as well. When things start heating up, and we know they will because “dung is slung” from both sides of the aisle these days, (ask Newt Gingrich about that), hang in there until there is irrefutable proof of wrongdoing, or until it’s clear that the candidate is simply being targeted for a political smack down.
In other words folks, don’t tuck your tails between your legs and run like wimpy little puppies anymore. We’re in a fight here! We know the swamp gates will be opened, so brace yourselves for the onslaught, but remain strong.
To get the inescapable smear campaign started, I will use a joke that I stole from my friend Mark Forsland: “Breaking news…… Rick Santorum had an affair with Herman Cain when he was a delivery boy for Godfather’s Pizza.” And…. we’re….OFF!!!!!
