The ‘rabid’ hate
aimed at Trayvon Martin

Washington Post, by Jonathan Capehart

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/5/2013 9:49:18 AM

Eighteen years ago today, Trayvon Benjamin Martin was born to Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin. Nearly a year ago, their son was killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., who viewed Trayvon as “a real suspicious guy.” Instead, the unarmed teenager was found with a bag of Skittles and an iced tea from 7-Eleven and a bullet hole in his chest from Zimmerman’s Kel-Tec 9 mm PF-9. Zimmerman now awaits trial for second-degree murder. A trial that his attorney is trying to delay. But he will have his day in court.

Comments:
No hate for Trayvon, but for a media that continues to portray him as an angelic 12-year-old instead of who he actually was on that tragic night.

Still clinging to the narrative in the face of the evidence.

They want to either convict an innocent man or, failing that, cause a riot. They´re evil.

The hate isn´t aimed at him. It is aimed at the culture that teaches kids like Trayvon that there are no consequences for thuggish behavior. It is also aimed at a media that wants to make everything about race, when the reality is that almost nothing is about race.

I wasn´t aware that St. Trayvon is 11 years old, but there´s his picture.

Sans halo, of course. The press wouldn´t go that far.

And the W-P continues to use the ´innocent looking little boy´ photo. Nice touch.
The request for a delay in the trial of zimmerman is related to the fact that the obese nifong-like angela corey is not providing evidence, as required by discovery rules. Zimmerman´s attorneys have a right to all evidence available to the prosecution, prior to going to trial. And it takes time to verify the evidence.

Were it not for the "media", people like Capehart would not be able to get jobs and would therefore become community organizers, decidedly a non-job.

How dare a non-black confront an "African-American" from casing the neighborhood. Non-blacks should bow and allow theft, murder, or whatever the Chosen Minority wants to do.

I don´t hate Trayvon at all. I feel sorry for the poor kid. He bought into the gangsta style.

Liberals classify anything that resists their agenda as "hate". You can´t just disagree with a liberal, you must hate them. Notice not "hate their agenda but hate them personally. It´s vastly over the top hyperbole but they are going for the emotional win so they make insane claims to reach their goals. The compliant MSM echoes the sentiment and it become propaganda.

The evidence shows that Trevon Martin was a stranger walking in an area that had problems with break-ins. He was noticed by Zimmerman, a resident, and reported to police. Somehow, a confrontation ensued. Apparently, Martin was angry enough to begin pummeling Zimmerman severely. Zimmerman lacked any wounds showing he was aggressive (scraped knuckles) and Martin showed little damage from the altercation besides the gun wound. Zimmerman, in fear of his life from an aggressive assailant, shot him in self defense.

There is evidence missing to completely support this narrative but none to contradict it.

Liberals don´t want this to become yet another over reaction story and a re desperately spinning it but it was a vast over reaction to a tragic situation.

Hate Trevon Martin? We barely know who he is. He was clearly angry in this confrontation. If he had controlled his temper the outcome would have been very different. The police would have arrived sorted it all out and everyone would have gone on their way. Too bad he didn´t control his temper.

Trayvon was acting suspiciously in an area that had recently, and repeatedly, fallen victim to criminals matching his discretion.

Trayvon had a violent past and was known to use drugs.

Trayvon stalked and attacked a voluneer neighboorhood watchman, stating he intended to kill Zimmerman, and beating him on the concrete sidewalk.

But for Zimmerman having a pistol, he´d be a dead man.

But for racist media and the racist president, Zimmerman would be celebrated as a hero.

Read the comments that follow the editorial.

Every lie-beral argument is based on falsified and fake ´´evidence´´ that the media released that was all proven to be false. Yet, because the MSM reported it, they still believe it it all true and base their opinions on that fake information.

Even though Zimmerman was a Hispanic man, he is going to be sacrificed in the court of PC as ´´an evil white man who was hunting for some young black hide´´.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, how many black males have shot and killed other black males with clear and intentional intent to murder them since Zimmerman defended his life from this thug???

There is no rabid hate for Trayvon, but the media wants to portray this kid as a saint. He was caught at school with a bag full of jewelry, with a flat head screw driver in the bag. The evidence suggests he might have stolen the jewelry. He was suspended from school five times in three months. He is loitering in a neighborhood that has high crime. Evidence shows that Zimmerman had given up the chase and was getting in his car to go when Trayvon wanted a fight. So the kid is dead; he should have just walked away, but his kind always wants to prove a point. And his mother wants to get rich using Trayvon´s incident.

Besides the media-driven images of an angelic little 11-year old riding ponies, other reports emerged describing Martin in his teens who was increasingly adversarial and had a history of sucker punching complete strangers.

That M.O. of Martin explains a lot of what Zimmerman may have encountered that rainy night.

BTW, Martin innocently buying skittles and Arizona iced tea prior to the incident may be only part of the story. Those are key ingredients to a fad hip-hop urban concoction known as ´purple drank´, ´sizzrup´ or ´lean´. Mixed with cough syrup containing promethazine or codeine makes a highly addictive depressant.

Capeheart can´t get it through his programmed head that this is not about hating Trayvon Martin.

He needs to take a good long look at ambulance-chasing lawyer Crump who turned this case into a public relations campaign, with Ryan Julison and the help of ABC newser Matt Guttman, on the way to another big fat personal injury check for the Martin family and a nice big fat check to Crump and his law firm.

Capeheart is looking in the wrong places. But that´s what Capeheart does.

The reason for his emergence with this story is that there is a hearing in the case today.

Capehart, he wasn´t shot because he was ´a real suspicious guy.´ He was shot because he was trying to split Zimmerman´s head open on the sidewalk. You can try and live in a magical world where bad ´journalists´ create reality, but in the real world punk ´gangstas´ who attack armed people sometimes get shot. Figure it out you propagandist.

Hey Jonathan: How about publishing a picture of Trayvon as he appeared at the time of his death, instead of when he was a youth? Also, how about publishing some background on his run-ins with the law?

What? It doesn´t fit the narrative? I see.....

Yes, I admit it. I must be a racist.

I hate all black criminals and thugs.

I hate all white (and Asian, American Indian, Latino, etc.) crominals and thugs just as much, too.

It´s just that because there are so many more black criminals and thugs than non-blacks, that it becomes noticeable.

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

   

 



 
Grandma Hillary Is a

When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef says preparing healthy Passover

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
