If he didn’t weigh as much as a small house, I’d love to midget toss Reverend Al and the rest of the race parade right out of Florida, banished from ever speaking again about the intersection of racism and gun violence.
Trayvon Martin’s killing by a Hispanic man improbably named George Zimmerman a month ago has suddenly become a lightning rod galvanizing the race-baiting industry and bringing the usual suspects together to whine about inequality, racism, and how they can be paid to shut up until they once again run out of blood money.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a graduate of concealed carry classes and NRA-taught classes on personal defense inside and outside of the home, and have some additional weapons training outside of that. It is my responsibility to know the law, and I suspect that we have enough facts to know that George Zimmerman was morally, ethically, and more than likely legally in the wrong when he provoked a conflict with Trayvon Martin that left the young man dead. I firmly believe that if circumstances played out another way, Martin actually had a much stronger justification for using lethal force against Zimmerman.
And yes, I believe that the Sanford, FL Police Department ran an incompetent, incomplete and more than likely biased investigation that precludes justice ever being served in this case. The political pressure is such that George Zimmerman will stand trial. It is also almost certain that as a result of an incompetent investigation, prosecutors will not have enough forensic evidence to put Zimmerman in jail for manslaughter, which should probably be the outcome. I understand, as much as any middle-aged white male can, with why blacks are up in arms over how the Sanford PD botched the investigation into Martin’s killing.
But you know what? Screw you.
You’re willing to give a song and dance routine now that it is politically advantageous, and our stuttering… miserable failure of a President is crashing in the polls, and needs some diversion from the wars he’s losing, the respect he’s lost, the economy he’s destroyed, and he hate he’s brewed. You’re more than happy to go on a rampage of self-righteous indignation now that a single young man was gunned down by a wannbe mall ninja.
But where have you been the past year?
In 2009 and 2010, the Obama Administration ran thousands of guns into Mexico, in what the facts seem to indicate was nothing more or less than an attempt to inflate the number of American guns used to kill Mexican citizens. They were wildly successful. In just two years, they were able to trace hundreds of the guns they walked to the Sinaloa cartel to murders. More than 1,400 guns from this one gun-walking operation-and there are thought to be many more that have not yet been investigated–are still on the streets of Mexico and the United States, and it all would have still been a secret until federal agents started dying and whistleblowers tired of the body count came forward to blow the Operation out of the water.
What did you do?
Did the Congressional Black Caucus come forward to demand accountability, and use their political power to fight for justice? Did the NAACP come forward, declaring solidarity with the Mexican people and Americans of Latino descent that were the victims of a racist plot that has taken at least 300 lives, and will take many more before these guns are finally off the street? Hell no, they didn’t!
Instead, what they did, incredibly, was to claim Republicans were being “racist” in trying to figure out who authorized a program that made the Obama Administration an accessory to 300 murders, violated the Arms Export Control Act thousands of times, and committed felony crimes under the Kingpin Act. They stood against justice, choosing self-serving racial politics over the law. They threw every Mexican and American of Hispanic dissent “under the bus,” in an effort to protect a black Attorney General and a black President that bear responsibility for the deadliest scandal in U.S. Presidential history.
So I ask you to kindly kiss my ass, and the asses of the white, brown, and the yellow, and the red men and women in this country that you racist bastards shit upon to protect your petty fiefdoms. For 50 years you’ve fought over scraps, subjugating your own people to poverty and the soft chains of entitlement. Given a chance to stand up for justice, you instead decided the lives of hundreds or thousands or tens of thousands weren’t worth nearly as much as propping up an arrogant failure, merely because he was (sort of) the first of your race to hold that position. How immoral. How racist. How disgusting.
So kiss my ass, race-baiters! Sharpton, Jackson, and Jealous, and all your dog-whistle panderers deserve nothing from this, nor do the blood-dancers.
You make a single young black man cut down by a Hispanic a cause for national outrage,even as you actively defended a young black President that is ultimately responsible for a gun-walking plot that literally put the weapons in the hands of those that murdered hundreds.
I sit and sincerely pray for Trayvon Martin and his family.
But screw you, you disgusting, $1,000 suit-wearing racist trash.
