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.

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.

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.

Stocks finished the day and the week with losses Friday as Wall Street posted the first negative January for the Standard & Poor´s 500 since 2010 -- a poor start that history says could bode ill for the remainder of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 149.76 points, or 0.9%, to 15,698.85. The S&P 500 closed down 11.60 points, 0.7%, to 1,782.59.

WASHINGTON - The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week, but the underlying trend suggested the labor market continued to heal. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 19,000 to a seasonally adjusted 348,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Claims for the prior week were revised to show 3,000 more applications received than previously reported. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast first-time applications for jobless benefits rising to 330,000 in the week ended January 25.

Hillary Clinton Is The Biggest Democratic
Presidential Nomination Frontrunner Ever

Hillary Clinton is the biggest frontrunner ever for the Democratic presidential nomination. That´s according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, which finds former Secretary of State Clinton with a 73-12 lead over Vice President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2016 Democratic primary race. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) gets 8% of the vote. As the WaPo points out, Clinton´s 61-point lead is nearly three times as large as it was in 2006, when the conventional wisdom held that she would be the 2008 Democratic nominee. In 2006, she took 39% of the theoretical vote, compared to then-Sens. Barack Obama

TOLEDO, Ohio — The homemade matzo ball and beef barley soups are lost on customers walking into Rascals´ NY Deli — because there just aren´t very many of them.

Nearly half of California households are in chronic financial stress and have little to no savings for emergencies, according to a report Thursday. The study by the Corporation for Enterprise Development paints a generally dreary picture of the financial situation of low- and middle-income people -- and even many above-average wage earners -- throughout the state. Based on various measures of overall financial well-being, California ranks 34th among the 50 states, according to the study. Unemployment, credit-card debt and personal bankruptcies all are far above the national average, the study found. Even families with above-average income are one crisis away

RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina´s unemployment rate dropped to 6.9 percent in December, its lowest level in more than five years, but Tuesday´s news came with signals that the rapid fall was related to thousands of discouraged people giving up on finding work. December´s unemployment rate, down from 7.4 percent the previous month, was the lowest since September 2008, when a building financial crisis shook the world´s economy and brought on the risk of a new Depression.

But more than half of Americans have no idea when that deadline is, and even more are shrugging it off because they believe it will be extended. Despite the administration’s outreach efforts, a new Bankrate survey shows 55 percent still aren’t aware of the March 31 health care sign up deadline through the exchanges.

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town
