PROGRESSIVES MUST DEMONIZE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN TO MAINTAIN THEIR RACIST VIEWPOINT
Funny thing about the racists who depend on their ability to stir up racial discord to push their socialist agenda forward. Anything which does not play into their racist narrative must be demonized, denigrated, and disparaged. Rather than allowing justice to prevail, the progressive racists are busy stirring up additional controversy … possibly to hide the truth: Trayvon Martin was a thuggish, drug-using, assailant on the night of his death.
Here is a prime example of progressive race-baiting …
George Zimmerman's Defense Team Releases Texts and Photos to Fit Their Racist Narrative -- "Is the defense trying to prove Trayvon deserved to be killed by George Zimmerman because of the way he looked?"
The defense team for George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, released dozens of photos and text messages of the 17-year-old murder victim in a seeming effort to portray him as a “gangsta” troublemaker.
Let’s review, the progressives subjected George Zimmerman, his family, his friends, and associates to intense scrutiny in order to “prove” that George Zimmerman was a racist, bent on profiling an innocent black teenager walking home from a convenience story. At first, they spun the story as “racist white man kills black man in an unprovoked attack.” Even the corrupt progressive mainstream saw official police tapes altered to portray the subject in a false and misleading light. They even used Trayvon's childhood photos to avoid showing Trayvon Martin for what he appeared to be on the night in question, a muscled thug. Then it was discovered that George Zimmerman was Hispanic, with many black friends who vouched for the fact that he was not a racist. The narrative was changed in a way that embarrassed the progressives and made them look like the race-baiters that they were.
It is unclear whether the texts and photos will be permissible in court, though attorneys for Martin’s family claim they represent “irrelevant red herrings.” Zimmerman’s attorneys are expected to use the “evidence” to make insinuations about Martin’s character, as the Zimmerman can be heard in a 911 call accusing the teen of being “up to no good” and “on drugs or something.”
Is Trayvon’s character, demeanor, and motivations not important to Zimmerman’s defense; as it goes to why Trayvon Martin didn’t simply confront Zimmerman and ask if there is a problem? At this point, Trayvon could have explained where he was doing and where he was going. But, according to media reports, Trayvon became belligerent and hostile – possibly attacking Zimmerman and leading to his responsibility for his own death minutes later.
From the actual 911 transcript …
Dispatcher: Sanford Police Department. …
Zimmerman: Hey we've had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there's a real suspicious guy, uh, [near] Retreat View Circle, um, the best address I can give you is 111 Retreat View Circle. This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy is he white, black, or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
Continuing with the progressive’s pitch …
The “evidence,” posted on a website run by Zimmerman’s attorneys, includes text messages from Martin discussing cannabis, a school suspension and a troubled home life, as well as several texts expressing interest in guns. The defense also posted 25 photos of Martin, some previously released on the internet, which include photo of the teen wearing gold teeth and flicking the camera off, as well as a photograph in which he appears to be smoking cannabis.
Notice how the progressives put quotes around the word “evidence,” as if these items are somehow suspect and should not be considered as “evidence.”
Benjamin Crump, an attorney representing Martin’s family, noted the irony of Zimmerman’s defense pushing a stereotypical image of Martin in a case already fraught with racial implications.
It was the progressives who first jumped into the use of stereotypical images as they suggested that a white man wantonly killed an innocent black teenager. As for the case being fraught with racial implications, it is the professional race-baiters that are stirring the pot to advance their personal and professional agendas.
"Is the defense trying to prove Trayvon deserved to be killed by George Zimmerman because of the way he looked?" Crump said in a statement obtained by NBC. "If so, this stereotypical and closed-minded thinking is the same mindset that caused George Zimmerman to get out of his car and pursue Trayvon, an unarmed kid who he didn't know. The pretrial release of these irrelevant red herrings is a desperate and pathetic attempt by the defense to pollute and sway the jury pool."
Let us look at this from a realistic perspective of a community watch person seeing an unknown person acting suspiciously … and who calls the police. There is nothing inherent racist in this prudent action and Zimmerman should be commended for trying to protect his community. Look at how the progressives claim that Trayvon’s character and past actions are irrelevant red herrings while they continue their attempts to smear Zimmerman’s character and past actions. Furthermore, characterizing these evidentiary items as a desperate and pathetic attempt to pollute and sway the jury rings hollow as progressives use articles such as this one to do the very same thing.
One of many striking example of an apparent “red herring” released by Zimmerman’s defense is text messages referring to Martin’s homelife. In one text, from Nov. 22, 2011, he writes, "My mom just told me i gotta mov wit my dad … She just kickd me out." Some legal experts say Zimmerman’s defense will have a hard time using the texts and photographs in court, as it resides in the legally murky area of character evidence.
“What does his mom saying he needs to live with his dad for a while say about why he was shot? Nothing,” Jeff Deen, a former state attorney in Florida, told NBC. “Generally, reputation evidence is not admissible in court.” Source: George Zimmerman's Defense Team Releases Texts and Photos to Fit Their Racist Narrative | Alternet
Excuse me? It’s not the short-hand style of messaging that is troubling, but the fact that Trayvon apparently became unmanageable or disrespectful for reasons now unknown, prompting his mother to kick Trayvon out of the family home. Could it be that Trayvon was acting out the gangsta lifestyle – and that it is possible that he believed he had a physical advantage over Zimmerman which lead to Trayvon attacking Zimmerman, and not Zimmerman attacking Trayvon. It has also been suggested that Zimmerman shot Trayvon as his head was being smashed into a concrete sidewalk – certainly self-defense.
Bottom line …
The progressives and race-baiters need to make this about Zimmerman to disguise the fact that another young black precipitated his own death during a violent attack that need not have occurred. We need to wait for the wheels of justice to turn … and meanwhile note that the progressives have a vested interest in the case.
