We've all been deluged with media hype about the trial of the season -- not in a court of law, but in the kangaroo court of public opinion. Yes, I'm talking about the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. The media declares it a hate crime motivated by race without one scintilla of evidence about what really happened that night. The Black Panthers offer a reward for Zimmerman - dead or alive? Spike Lee
terrorizes an innocent elderly couple (who receive death threats) by mistakenly giving out their address as Zimmerman's. A member of the black caucus turn up on the floor of Congress in a "hoodie." The president raises the racial stakes saying if Trayvon was his son he'd "look like me." Wow! Talk about stirring up the racial tensions.
A young man is dead; another has been declared guilty in the press. And all this hype looks to me like a cynical attempt to make political hay out of a crisis that would be a shame to waste. Let's face it. Race animosity is an election strategy.
Does anybody care about justice and the rule of law? Is George Zimmerman allowed his day in court? Or should we just save time, affirm the guilty verdict in the press, and send out the mob to lynch Zimmerman and get it over with?
As I see there is something positive that could result from this case.
1) People ( primarily whites along with the majority of Hispanics) will clearly see the inner character and prejudice of the Marxist in the White House
In addition, I am delighted that no Catholic cleric (aside from Fr. Pfleger who can always be counted on for his theater of the absurd antics) has chosen to open their mouths regarding Trayvon Martin.
Obviously, the case is a local police matter. Barrack Hussein, Jessie, Al, Spike, LeBron James
and the Miami Heat Basketball team, P. Diddy, Jamie Foxx, Michael Moore et. al., while they may be energizing their own far left political base, are disgusting the white majority who regrettably made the mistake of putting Hussein in office 3 years ago. In my view, because of this and numerous other much more devastating reasons, the majority are unlikely to make the same mistake again.
I wish I could be as optimistic. The Republicans are doing a pretty good job of committing hara-kari.
"Does anybody care about justice and the rule of law?"
No, not in this Godless society that is now ruled by the leaders that we deserve, which is Biblical! These things happen when God's Law is mocked on a continuous basis, and until that stops, the United States of America will be on life support because the only way that we're going to survive this diabolic evil that has our country by the jugular is with the help of Almighty God which will not be forthcoming if we continue to trash His Natural Law understandable from reason exclusive of any Divine Revelation connotations!
Al Sharpton is directing the guerilla warfare, calling for an escalation of civil disobedience.
It's tragic that a young man was killed. It's equally tragic that the man who pulled the trigger has been tried, convicted and would be hanged by an angry mob if allowed. Zimmerman's account of the events are being discounted even before being heard. You can go on Youtube and listen to all of the 911 calls made that night. There were cries for help. An expert would be able to tell whose voice it is. There is still evidence that the public doesn't know about, I bet.
I feel sorry for Martin's family and the loss of a son, but Zimmerman's life will never be the same, guilty or innocent and I'm sure he had no intention of murdering anyone that night while he was patrolling his neighborhood.
Blaming the whole white race for the killing of a black youth by a medium brown-skinned man is as stupid as blaming the whole white race for the killing of a darker-complected African American by a medium-brown complected African Amercan. Does anyone have any sense in this country any more? Good grief! how stupid can people get? Now we are racists by shades according to some pundits. Is there no end to all this? Pretty soon we will have a "shade odometer" to determine the guilt of a person -- the lighter the skin color the more guilty regardless of the facts. How about getting at the facts first, and leaving out race -- period. I do not know who was right or wrong in this case, but this is all so incredibly unbelievable and stupid, and what was it that St. Paul said about rioting? Oh, I know. Let us live honorably as in daylight; not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual excess and lust, not in quarreling and jealousy. (Romans 13:13). Or course, there will be those who will not listen to St.Paul because they do not think he looks like them. Oh, well, to each his own hell.
Regarding my last post at 2:05PM, April 1, After seeing more pictures of Zimmerman, I suppose he is quite a bit lighter than Trayvon, but they both could have been racists as far as that is concerned, and the color in pictures can be manipulated. Most people are ethnic centerd to some degree, and often to accuse another of being racist only tells something about oneself -- one is overly racially sensitive oneself. That is human nature, or just plain self-preservation when it is not carried to the extreme. People need to look at the facts,though, not the color. Anyway I am tired of all this, and as Christ said, "Who has made me a judge over this?" The answer is no one. I just wanted to correct any mistakes I made in my last post.
