I left my job over a
computer-desktop hoodie

Washington Post, by Brenda Howard

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/17/2013 5:14:49 AM

A year and a half ago, a news story exploded out of Sanford, Fla. George Zimmerman, an armed, 28-year-old man of mixed white and Hispanic ancestry, followed and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American. The tragic episode was touched off because Zimmerman, out on neighborhood watch patrol, found Martin to be suspicious as he walked home from a store wearing a sweat shirt with a hood. As the days and months unfolded and more details emerged, the national media ran with the story, and along the way something became quite apparent to me. As captivating as this story was,

I´m glad you did the right thing like George Zimmerman did.

George would be dead if he did not shoot Trayvon when he did. (His skull was being bashed into the concrete by Trayvon.)

And you, as an apostle of Al Sharpton, would not have been able to live with yourself if you removed the hoodie desktop.

At least you are still alive. George would be dead if he didn´t kill Trayvon first.

Dear fellow Americans, George Zimmerman was not ´´out on a neighborhood watch´´ - he was out of his house at night. Period.

Perhaps it would be politic to remind Ms Howard et al that Trayvon Martin was involved in a criminal act, that he was killed during a commission of a crime; St Trayvon assaulted and bashed George Zimmerman´s head.

"Zimmerman . . . followed and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American." Yep, that´s the story!

Google pic of this Atlanta-area author "Brenda Howard" and you´ll see why the spoon-fed Trayvon narrative is swallowed whole.

Then again, my Irish-Catholic mom can find no wrong with JFK.

Trayvon was out on the street late at night in the shadows with a hoodie over his head and face. Since there had been burgularies in that neighborhood, Zimmerman kept an eye on him. Trayvon was not a sweet innocent boy going to the local store for candy. He was a 17 year old thug that had been smoking weed and had been kicked out of school for various infractions. He tried to bash Zimmerman´s head in but got shot instead. He was on TOP of Zimmerman. The Press created a story of innocence and race. Shame on them for this mess we are all in. Do your research, lady. Do not depend on the news media to tell the truth.

Correction; Zimmerman did not follow Martin, he got out of his vehicle to check a street name. Martin came out from between the buildings and confronted Zimmerman. Sure, the witness that provides this information is Zimmerman himself. But on all other points of his testimony, confirmed by others, no where is he shown to be lying.

She was bright enough to do a set-piece for a slice of time ~ when the story was NOT all out there ~ that took time

(note: for most commenters on any board, the police report was actually UN-available until well after Krump had his press conference. In the case of some Conservative sites the cops down in Florida were actually posting material based on that report ~ been nice if they´d gone ahead and posted the report a few days earlier though ~ all that delay did was contribute to the then-borning MSM tale where they then ~ not earlier ~ edited the 911 tapes).

Obviously she is easily persuaded by rumor and innuendo vended by the main stream media ~

But, again, she didn´t really tell us what she thinks now, and if she followed the case enough to learn all the facts she may have a different opinion. We´ll never know, though, because the leftwingtard goonsquads are out on the tale and refuse to accept the truth.

Notice that last comment on the Post board where the guy issues a death threat to Zimmerman. That´s one of the goons. They also threaten other posters on the Washington Post comment threads, and I think some of them are quite serious. Good thing the Post is going bankrupt.

Well, Brenda is right that if she wants to romanticize about a young gangsta wannabe, that is into drugs, looking for fights, and was kicked out of school, it IS her right to do so and quit her job over it too.

Travon Martin did NOT have a bright future ahead of him. He was heading down a path that too many Black youth have followed before him and the end is not happy. Travon Martin did not deserve to die but his behavior, especially his short temper and eagerness to fight, put him at great risk and he picked a victim who, in fear of his life, fought back with tragic results for all.

Good luck Brenda. I hope your world view brings you success but somehow I doubt it.

If " George Zimmerman, an armed, 28-year-old man of mixed white and Hispanic ancestry," does this moron also describe "Obama, a year old of mixed white and African ancestry"? Of course not: consistency is not a feature of the "Bright", liberal, progressive secularists in the pursuit of their agenda.

A plane crash at Smolensk in Russia four years ago wiped out the Warsaw leadership. It used to be seen as an accident. Now, after Putin’s games in Ukraine, people aren’t so sure. Four years ago this week, Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed in a plane crash near the Katyn Forest in Russia where he was flying to honor the 22,000 Polish officers, lawyers, priests and professors slaughtered there by the Soviets 70 years before. Ninety-five other military, political and public figures including his wife died on that plane. One of the more heartbreaking details to emerge was that First

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York Times

Court against his wife Heather. The hands receiving that information belonged to a gossip columnist for the Washington Post, who made the “informed decision” to report on it. Later in the day Heather, who is also a lobbyist, informed the Post the text of her counter-suit. It published a follow-up. The documents, which you can read below, did

President Obama‘s former body man Reggie Love is — ahem — loving life. Specifically, life outside the White House. Thursday, The Mirror spotted him at lunch, dining al fresco at BLT Steak, a short sprint from the White House. If the 32-year-old was ever a tense, stressed out aide in a suit, you wouldn’t know it. He was relaxed, at ease, and sipping lemonade as he chatted away with what looked to be a longtime female friend, possibly a former coworker. So, of course, The Mirror listened in. Love left the Obama Administration in 2011 to earn his MBA at the University of

President Obama met privately Thursday with Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor, amid accusations by her GOP opponent that she’s afraid to be seen in public with the president. A White House aide said Mr. Obama “visited briefly” with Ms. Davis following his remarks at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. The meeting took place after reporters traveling with Mr. Obama had been moved into vans, so they didn’t witness the meeting. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, the Republican nominee for governor, has publicly dared Ms. Davis to be

In his Senate Foreign Relations Committee testimony last week, Secretary of State John Kerry blamed Israel for the breakdown in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. He argued that an Israeli announcement of 700 new housing units for a neighborhood in Jerusalem were what did in the talks. “Poof, that was sort of the moment,” Kerry said. “We find ourselves where we are.” This is an amazing claim, especially when the housing units are not in a settlement—but are in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, in a location that every Israeli and every Palestinian knows will be part of Israel in

It has long been recognized that “liberal” and “progressive” are misnomers when it comes to describing American leftists in the 21st Century. They may fancy themselves as forward-thinking but they go back eighty or so years whenever it’s time to craft economic policy and their racial politics gaze backward a half century. Most of the time. At the Civil Rights Summit in Austin this week, there were some prominent Democrats who surveyed the landscape and admitted that things are, in fact, much different now than they were in the early 1960s. Things have changed. That was the message delivered during

BEIJING — In 1970, when China was in the grip of the Cultural Revolution, Zhang Hongbing, a 16-year-old in Guzhen, a county in Anhui Province, made a fateful decision. During a family debate that year, his mother, Fang Zhongmou, had criticized Mao Zedong for his cult of personality. Her son and his father, believing her views to be counterrevolutionary, decided to inform on her. She was arrested that same day. Mr. Zhang still recalls how his mother’s shoulder joints gave a grating creak as her captors pulled the cord tight. Two months later, she was shot to death. In 1980, four years

Al Sharpton was thick as thieves with a notorious drug trafficker when he became an FBI informant — and even convinced then-US Sen. Alfonse D’Amato to get them $600,000 in federal funding for their “anti-drug” program. The portly preacher had just helped D’Amato win a tough 1986 re-election over Mark Green when he turned to the powerful lawmaker for the funding. Sharpton’s plan was to use a church-owned Brooklyn building for his program and give control to Robert Curington, who was labeled a Class 1 trafficker by the Drug Enforcement Administration because of his ties to major heroin dealers, according

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
