Black Panthers Offer A Cool Million For Someone Named Zimmerman

Breitbart has the details. I successfully restrained Stacy McCain from trying to turn in Bob Dylan.

What is the deal with these jackwagons and the race baiting? Is the point here to build up the tension and then let #OccupyResoluteDesk appear to be the peacemaker, throwing some propaganda orgy for his media sycophants, to calm the storm he’s called?

Truly, we are tangled up in Blue-state idiocy.

Update: that Mr. G Guy doesn’t seem to get the joke.

     Yeah, well, if Stacy has an “in” with the Santorum campaign, he needs to tell Rick to stop sounding like a fool on Face The Nation:

    RICK SANTORUM: Well, I mean, I obviously I’m not privy to what’s going on in someone’s mind. Obviously in my opinion someone who had a very sick mind who would– who would pursue someone like this.
    This is clearly a heinous act.
    And, you know, there are a lot of people
    who have a lot of distorted views of reality. And, it’s– it’s a tragic,
    tragic case. And my heart goes out to the parents, too. I can’t imagine
    what they’re suffering losing their son in– in such a horrific way. All
    I would say is that whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one and a very, very tragic one.

    Ol’ Bob Dylan aint such a bad dude. I think he is even more of a conservative these days.

    On the other hand, Malik Shabazz and the NBPP is a bunch of race hustling sh!t stains who learned their craft sitting on Al Sharpton’s knee.

  • Charles

    Now don’t be blaming us in the blue states for some Texas-based group making threats in Florida.

    The Sanford Police would have done George Zimmerman a favor to have booked him for manlaughter and let the court system sort it out his self-defense claims rather than trying to play jury too. There is, however, no Constitutional right to good police work.

  • Charles

    I botched some typing there, manslaughter was the word I was going for.

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    I think this is one of those things filed under “never let a good crisis go to waste”.

    Summer’s going to be a blast…

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Who is calling who the racist here?  And Hispanic Americans?  I hope you are paying attention to how the Democrats treat you…guilty until proven innocent (and you can never be innocent).

    I will link you.  Not that I will get any credit…sniff…but I will do it anyway because linking TOM is the right thing to do.  

    Talking about Do the Right Thing, Spike Lee is NOT in tweeting Zimmerman’s address out.  

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Has Charles Johnson accused Stacy of white supremacism yet over this?  

  • smitty

    We should at least agree that all candidates are in a double bind: there too busy to have any detailed knowledge of local crime stories, but cannot afford to seem ignorant of, well, anything.

    Santorum seems to have fumbled this one.

    What is crucial to understand is that the media are going to continue to thrash the Perry/Bachmann/Cain out of him until his lifelines are gone.

  • smitty

    This, in particular? Unsure, but then I’m generally unaware of Chuckie.

  • smitty

    You can edit your own responses.

  • Mike G.

     What joke? ‘splain it to me in simple wordz I kin understand. I’m jus a redneck carpenter, ya know.

  • Mike G.

    Well…color me stupid. I should have hit the link to see that Dylan’s given name was Zimmerman.

    But a link is a link, right?

  • serfer62

    Well…it didn’t take long to get off topic

    good work people

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    Apparently some of the media have given out his dad and wife’s names as well.

    And some entertainers and sports stars are helping to raise the money for the bounty (or so the NBPP says).I’d love the see these idiots charged with reckless endangerment; you just know some poor slob who had absolutely nothing at all to do with any of it is the one who’ll end up paying the big price for this.

    Honestly, I don’t know that particulars on this case, and that’s the problem: nobody does, yet the story sprouted legs and is running now.

  • richard mcenroe

     Both the NFL and NBA very openly admit they’re reaching out to the ‘thug life’ market with their merchandise and promotions.  It’s just bidness, boys.

  • richard mcenroe

     There is, however, a constitutional right to not getting arrested if the cops can’t find probable cause based on the evidence at hand.

  • Wombat_socho

     I haven’t listened to those commie jackwagons since 1968.

     Well, at least they’re not abusing each other in here.

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    I like the abuse…

  • smitty

    See, now, that’s funny. You do realize that Zimmermann means ‘carpenter’ in the original language?

    Hey, Black Panthers: Mike G. floats in water, which means he weighs as much as a duck, which means that he’s a warlock! You know what to do.

  • JeffWeimer

    And here I though lunch mobs were frowned upon these days….

  • Zilla of the Resistance

    When you’ve lost Zilla of the Resistance…
    I was among the first to support Rick Santorum, which makes this all the more awful for me. He needs to shed his ignorance and retract his ill-informed leftist talking points which mirror those of the LYNCH MOB. Be sure to read my comment to the Twitchy post as well, Stacy has a copy of the email I sent. I am deeply disgusted by Rick Santorum pulling a Barack Obama “he acted stupidly” but doing it in a far more dangerous and irresponsible way.  Unfreaking believable.

  • Dianna Deeley

     I like lunch mobs. It’s fun to have a massive picnic, with all the ladies in their prettiest dresses and the guys in nice pants and with their ties off.

    Oh…you meant lynch mobs. Yeah. Conservatives frown on them.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    I will link you guys to this…but Santorum better hope he is right about condemning Zimmerman.  Because what if Zimmerman really is not a person with a malicious motive?

    I really miss Herman Cain.  

  • Dianna Deeley

    Santorum managed to keep saying exactly the wrong thing. It’s a dreadful thing. He should simply have expressed his sympathy the family, and said that the system needed time to work and bring all the facts out. 

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    We do not know enough to judge who is right or wrong in this case.  Either way.  The left just went off the deep end and Rick Santorum ran right after them.  

  • just a conservative girl

    And the DOJ will be investigated the panthers for threats against his life in 3..2.. oh wait.  They won’t be.

  • Adjoran

     The MEDIA?  Yeah, they are guilty of feeding Santorum straight questions and reporting his Bizarro World answers.  They’re about as responsible for his gaffes and whining as George Burns admitted his comic genius contributed to the hilarity of Burns & Allen:

    “So I’d walk out and say, ‘So Gracie – how’s your mother?'”

  • Adjoran

     When there is no evidence of a crime, “good police work” is NOT to make an arrest.

  • Adjoran

    Due process.  What a concept!

  • Adjoran


    It’s bad enough to don “hoodies” in “solidarity” with what may have  been a criminal looking for an easy score, but contributing to a lynching has to carry some jeopardy.

  • Adjoran

     Oh, you knew Herman?

    Did you get a settlement?

  • Adjoran

     Dang, THAT explains it!  I’ve not been well received at those picnics, but I’ve been going in nice TIES with my PANTS off.

  • Adjoran

     Exactly – and urge calm, and that everyone allow the authorities to investigate outside a circus atmosphere.  And then shut up, or say, I’ll wait for the investigation.

  • Adjoran

     Holder’s Civil Rights Division is probably contributing to the reward fund.

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    In all fairness, while I don’t know a lot about the case, something is saying that neither party was exactly on the up and up.

    What’s a kid doing out and about loitering in the rain?  Why does a neighborhood watch person decide to follow him?  Something isn’t adding up completely.

    But it doesn’t take away from the fact that Santorum should have not jumped into this — not a smooth move there.

  • Charles

    Evidence like a corpus delicti?

    The police did make an arrest, they brought the suspect into the police station. They just didn’t charge him.

    They apparently made their judgment based on the back of the head injury. While that could have been faked, I suspect the kid cold-cocked him with that ice tea can, perhaps swinging it in a bag from the convenience store. Under Florida’s stand-your-ground law, the kid would have every right to do to a guy chasing him with a gun for no good reason.

    Look maybe the police actually reconstructed exactly what happened, but I think it’s a safe bet the complaint they didn’t do a full investigation is true.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    That would of course be the perfect and sane thing to say.  That is what all responsible leaders should be saying.  

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    I hear Herman is a real gentleman.  

  • Charles

    Yea, like most burglars go looking around for easy scores at 7pm.

    Pulling the hood up on your sweatshirt when it’s raining, very suspcious.

  • Adjoran

    Your fantasies are not evidence.

    The evidence shows Zimmerman retreating to his vehicle after losing Martin’s trail, being attacked and assaulted by Martin, and shooting him in self defense.  There are several corroborating witnesses to this account, and none which contradict it.

    Zimmerman was NEVER arrested.  He went to the police station voluntarily and gave his statement without counsel.  Florida law requires probable cause for an arrest, and none existed in this case.

    A dead body is NOT evidence of a crime.

    To even discuss the case, you should first listen to all the 911 calls AND read the FAQ at

  • Adjoran

    Walking along the houses instead of the sidewalks isn’t suspicious to you? 

  • Adjoran

    Zimmerman started to follow him after Martin noticed him watching him from his truck, pulled up his hood, and took evasive action by running away between the houses and the community center.

    After the dispatcher told him “we don’t need you to do that,” Zimmerman broke off the chase – he had lost the guy anyway, so the fact the dispatcher didn’t give a lawful order isn’t even relevant – and was going back to his truck when the confrontation occurred.

    We KNOW this resulted in a broken nose and bloodied back of the head for Zimmerman, who was on his back on the ground with Martin atop him, beating him as he cried for help frantically.  You can hear this on the 911 calls.

    There is no evidence of a crime on the record, much less any sign of “malicious” behavior on the part of anyone besides Martin.

  • Adjoran

    In that case . . .

    Reminds me of an old Groucho Marx joke:

    (to an attractive young lady) What’s the difference between making love and making sandwiches?

    Girl:  Why, I don’t know!

    Groucho:  How about lunch?

  • Mike G.

    You do realize that Zimmermann means ‘carpenter’ in the original language?

    Ya know, I didna know that. See, that’s why I come here…learn something new everyday.

     Shhhh…I swore you to secrecy on that warlock business.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Mike turned me into a Newt……..I got better…

  • smitty

    Also, you had the good sense not to run for President.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Exactly.  He depends on his aides to fill him in on these kinds of stories.

    However, he has to get out and publicly correct the gaffe ASAP or a lot of conservatives are going to be mad at him for the foolish statement.  Mea Culpa; Mea Maxima Culpa.
