Political Timidity & Clerical Cowardice

 

 

” When an attempt was made to railroad George Zimmerman into prison for defending himself when assaulted, most conservatives fell silent, and some joined the lynch mob — and, to the best of my knowledge, not a single public official stood up to denounce what was going on.

  More recently, when A&E suspended Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty for having the effrontery to repeat age-old Christian doctrine in an interview with GQ, Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, and Ted Cruz let A&E have it. But the Republican establishment was present and accounted for only in its absence from the scene.

  Moreover, when Mark Steyn blasted GLAAD in his inimitable way for trying to shut down public discourse, his editor at National Review Online took offense and went after him. Mark, being Mark,knew how to respond, and others at NRO have since rallied to his support. But I am nonetheless struck by the timidity on the right.

  Even more to the point, however, I am really struck by the silence of the clergy. We can debate whether what Phil Robertson said was right or wrong, but the priests and ministers of the various Christian sects profess precisely what he said, and they have been ostentatiously silent. “

 

 

 

An astute commenter posits the theory that this …

 

 

 

 

                                           

                                                … is the reason for our present state of affairs and he is correct , at least in part .

Sanford Police Chief Flips On Gun Ban For Neighborhood Watch

 

 

 

 

” The police chief in the town where George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin has reneged on a plan to ban volunteers from carrying guns while participating in the neighborhood watch program.

Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith was expected to announce the ban on guns at a community meeting Tuesday night, but said instead that the police department will merely urge volunteers to remain unarmed, rather than requiring it. 

“We’re recommending that no one is armed,” Smith said Tuesday, according to the Orlando Sentinel. “If you choose to have a firearm, that’s your right.

But last week, Sanford Police Department Spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly told NBC News that volunteers would be banned from carrying firearms while participating in the neighborhood watch program. 

Guns rights groups were critical of that announcement.

“If they’re licensed to carry, they’re licensed to carry, and that should not be restricted,” Carrie Lightfoot, founder of the Well Armed Woman, said of the rule according to a report from NBC’s WESH, which also noted that at least one local gun rights advocate was pleased to learn the ban was off the table. “

Zimmerman Trial Creating A Boom In Deceptive Media Editing

 

” Some skeptics say that journalism is dead. But let’s look at the glass half-full. Journalism may be dead, but it’s been replaced by agit prop advocacy that turns Al Sharpton into the new face of the news.

Did George Zimmerman get away with murder? That’s what one of his jurors says, according to headlines in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and dozens of other newspapers. Trayvon Martin’s mother and the Martin family’s attorney are trumpeting this “new information” as proof that “George Zimmerman literally got away with murder.”

The reports are based on an ABC News interview with Juror B29, the sole nonwhite juror.

ABC News hasn’t posted a full unedited video or transcript of the interview. The video that has been broadcast—on World News Tonight, Nightline, and Good Morning America—has been cut and spliced in different ways, often so artfully that the transitions appear continuous. So beware what you’re seeing. But the video that’s available already shows, on closer inspection, that Maddy has been manipulated and misrepresented. Here are the key points.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

George Zimmerman Rescues Family From Overturned Truck

” Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of a family of four — two parents and two children — trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.”

Zimmerman to be charged with Involuntary Racism

” The Department of Social Justice is contemplating several charges against the racist George Zimmerman for his cold-blooded murder of the post-infant and minority representative Trayvon Martin.Evidence compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of Citizens has found Zimmerman to be guilty of at least several major civil rights-related crimes.

  Having found no sign of racism in Zimmerman’s background, prosecutors plan to file charges of Involuntary Racism in the Commission of a Hate Crime, punishable by up to 20 years of labor in a correctional facility. Party officials believe this is the most appropriate charge based on the FBIC’s report ”

George Zimmerman now faces FEDERAL charges as NAACP piles
pressure on President Obama’s administration to act after his acquittal

” In a move which could have dramatic ramifications, the Justice Department confirmed today that it will look
into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal
charges against George Zimmerman in the wake of his acquittal.
The department opened an investigation into Martin’s death last year but stepped aside to allow the state
prosecution to proceed.
In a statement Sunday, the Justice Department said the criminal section of the civil rights division, the FBI
and the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Middle District of Florida are continuing to evaluate the evidence
generated during the federal probe, in addition to the evidence and testimony from the state trial.”

NOT GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS

 

 

 

 

” The State prosecutors, including the until recently rarely-seen Angela Corey, are currently providing interviews to the press, essentially re-arguing their catastrophically failed courtroom arguments. From this commentator’s perspective, they are simply in complete denial and/or in full-blown CYA mode, no matter how often they say they respect the decision of the jury.”

A Dagger At The Heart Of Justice 

 

 

 

” Just when I thought the George Zimmerman “trial” couldn’t sink any lower, the prosecutorial limbo dancers of the State of Florida magnificently lowered their own bar in the final moments of their cable-news celebrity. In real justice systems, the state decides what crime has been committed and charges somebody with it. In the Zimmerman trial, the state’s “theory of the case” is that it has no theory of the case: might be murder, might be manslaughter, might be aggravated assault, might be a zillion other things, but it’s something. If you’re a juror, feel free to convict George Zimmerman of whatever floats your boat.

Needless to say, even in a nutso jurisdiction like Florida, the crime of “child abuse” was never intended to cover a wizened old granny kicking the ankle of the punk who’s mugging her a week before his 18th birthday. But, if Aggravated Pedophilia is what it takes to fry that puffy white cracker’s butt, so be it. If, for the purposes of American show trials, an Hispanic who voted for a black president can be instantly transformed into a white racist, there’s no reason why he can’t be a child abuser, too.”

Two Males, No Men

 

 

They don’t make men like they used to. One can consult a Danish study that shows plummeting testosterone levels for scientific confirmation of this. Or, one could more easily turn on any cable news network’s wall-to-wall coverage of the Zimmerman-Martin case, a tragedy involving two males fumbling in the dark on how to be men.

Their households lacked strong male role models; their society, even more so. Four in ten American kids enter the world without their father married to their mother. When schoolboys begin to exhibit traits natural to their sex, the energetic fellows earn the wrath of detention and Ritalin. Any game that highlights contact — from dodgeball to football — comes under attack. Primetime television celebrates the fop and makes a buffoon out of fathers (see Simpson, Homer; Everybody Loves, Raymond).

Civilizing men out of existence has come at great cost to civilization. Instead of men, we get feminine imitations lacking beauty. We get lost boys compensating by becoming barbarians. We get Sanford, Florida, February 26, 2012.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DOJ Sends Secret “Peacekeepers” Where Trayvon Martin Was Killed

 

CRS

 

 

” Records obtained by Judicial Watch in response to local, state and federal public records requests show that the so-called peacekeepers are part of a large and growing division within DOJ called the Community Relations Service (CRS).  Though CRS purports to spot and quell racial tensions nationwide before they arise, the documents obtained by Judicial Watch show the group actively worked to foment unrest, spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on travel and hotel rooms to train protestors throughout Florida.  The peacekeepers also met with officials of the Republican National Convention, scheduled for several months later in Tampa, to warn them to expect protests in connection with Martin’s death.

In response to a Florida Sunshine Law request to the City of Sanford, Judicial Watch also obtained an audio recording of a “community meeting” held at Second Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Sanford on April 19, 2012. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

Neighbor Tells Court Trayvon Martin Was Straddling And Punching George Zimmerman Before He Was Shot

 

 

” A resident of the gated Florida community where Trayvon Martin was shot dead told the court today he believed the unarmed black teen was straddling George Zimmerman and raining down punches on him.

John Good is a key witness for the defense as his testimony refutes that from other Sanford residents that it was actually Zimmerman on top and Trayvon Martin calling desperately for help.

When questioned by the prosecution, Good – who works in finance – said that the ‘lighter-skinned man’ was underneath wearing ‘white or red clothing’ and could not move because the person on top – who was in dark clothing – was performing a ‘ground and pound’ move, a popular MMA action.

He said that though he could not be totally sure, he believed that Trayvon was punching Zimmerman, who was screaming for help.

The testimony corroborates Zimmerman’s claims that he shot the 17-year-old in self defense because he was being pummeled. He is charged with second-degree murder.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judge: No Audio Testimony In Zimmerman Trial

 

” Judge Debra Nelson reached her decision after hearing arguments that stretched over several days this month on whether to allow testimony from two prosecution experts. One expert ruled out Zimmerman as the screamer and another said it was Martin. Defense experts argued there was not enough audio to determine who the screams are coming from. Zimmerman’s attorneys also argued that the state experts’ analysis is flawed.

Nelson ruled that the methods used by the experts aren’t reliable. But her ruling doesn’t prevent the 911 calls from being played at trial.

The screams are crucial pieces of evidence because they could determine who the aggressor was in the confrontation. Martin’s family contends it was the teen screaming, while Zimmerman’s father has said it was his son.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Teenage Witness In Trayvon Martin Case ‘Lied’ About Hospital Visit, Lawyer Says

 

 

” “She, in fact, did not go to the hospital as she stated under oath,” defense attorney Don West said, according to MyFoxOrlando.com. “And that [prosecutor] Mr. [John] Guy represented there would not be hospital records confirming her sworn statement, because, in fact, she lied.”

Guy confirmed there were no hospital records for Witness 8.

O’Mara said he wanted to wait and take the girl’s deposition later this month before commenting on whether her credibility could be an issue at trial.

“The state did what it was supposed to do and let us know there was a problem with their witness. We now know it and have an opportunity to talk to her,” he said. “Credibility is always an issue with any witness. And if it rises to the level where it is evidentiary, then we’ll go from there. And if it doesn’t rise to that level, we deal with it.” “

TOP 10 EXCERPTS FROM ZIMMERMAN VS. NBC NEWS COMPLAINT

image

” On Thursday, George Zimmerman filed
suit against NBC News and three NBC
producers he accuses of intentionally
painting him as a racist. Zimmerman and
his attorneys have now done what many
in the new media only dream of doing,
holding the major media responsible for
their biased and misleading output.
The language in the complaint is
blunt. It calls NBC’s coverage “yellow
journalism” and refers to “journalistic
crimes.” Most broadly, the complaint
accuses NBC of trumping up a racism
narrative for ratings, with a name
check of the Today Show and Rev. Al
Sharpton in particular.

Here are some
of the highlights or, if you prefer, the
media’s lowlights from the complaint:

1. NBC saw the death of Trayvon
Martin not as a tragedy but as
an opportunity to increase
ratings, and so set about to
create the myth that George
Zimmerman was a racist and
predatory villain. “

George Zimmerman Sues NBC And Reporters

 

 

 

 

 

 ” The lawsuit claims NBC edited his phone call to a dispatcher in February. In the call, Zimmerman describes following Martin in the gated community where he lived, just moments before he fatally shot the 17-year-old teen during a confrontation.

“NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create a myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain,” the lawsuit claims. “

As He Should

GEORGE ZIMMERMAN TO SUE NBC FOR MISLEADING TAPE EDIT

  “George Zimmerman intends to sue NBC for their misleading editing of audio tape of his 911 call the night Florida teen Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.”

 

Professor Jacobson: DOING THE JOB THE ALLEGEDLY PROFESSIONAL MEDIA WON’T:
The latest wildfire spreading through the media and blogosphere is that armed neo-Nazis are patrolling Sanford, FL, in anticipation of trouble
if George Zimmerman is not charged in the killing of Trayvon Martin. In what has become a prime example of media malpractice, none of the major
publications spreading the rumors bothered to check with local law enforcement. I did, and the Sanford Police deny any indication of neo-Nazi patrols. . . .For The Daily Beast, Huffington Post,Mediaite, and The Daily News to spread such thinly-sourced claims without verification at a time when racial tensions already are high is irresponsible in the extreme.

“Remember when people were saying that if we left news reporting to the blogosphere we’d just get a bunch of unsubstantiated rumors and spin?”
