Another Liberal Narrative Gone Wrong

Posted on | March 27, 2012 | 62 Comments

Women, minorities, David Plouffe’s credibility hardest hit:

The individual at the center of the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting is a registered Democrat.
George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.

UPDATE: More mean-spirited hate-mongering from those notorious right-wing propagandists at Fox CBS News:

New information is putting a new twist on the Trayvon Martin case.
It has come out that the unarmed teenager was suspended from school, and is accused of beating up the man who then shot him dead.

No justice! No peace! No credibility!

UPDATE II: If Obama had a son, he’d look Tweet like Trayvon.

UPDATE III: Professor William Jacobson reminds us that no liberal narrative is a complete joke until Karen Finney gives us a pious sermon:

Karen, sweetheart: Grab any misogynistic slur from Trayvon’s Twitter stream. Now, apply it to yourself. And don’t say I never gave you anything special.

UPDATE IV: Nothing does more for the cause of civil right than teenagers walking out of school and ransacking a drug store.

UPDATE V: Never let a crisis go to waste!

    And you are beating this drum, not because you really give a flip, but because it may make some political points for your team.

    And so far, you appear to be succeeding — guess I am stupid for not shutting up.

    But stupid people have a tendency to do these things.

    Funny, apparently there is some news that the homocide detective did want to press charges of manslaughter on him.

    I’m just going to say this once more: the left is already sitting there with egg on their face thanks to backing ol’ Trayvon; the right could very well wind up doing the same thing because they jumped to the defense of George.

    And no, I’m not sure you can claim self defense if you are the one who sought out the situation — and this is especially true for a CCW.  At what point does it become your responsibility to not go there?
    Thanks to George, there will likely be some repercussions on this — because even if he didn’t break the letter of the law; he sure didn’t follow the spirit of it.

    Remember Mark Duggan? (Updated)…

    Food for thought: What if Zimmerman had not been armed and Martin had beaten him to death? Would we be discussing hoodies, bounties and racism? Probably not, because it is doubtful we’d even hear this story at all. Where is the DOJ on all of the …

    This is why they prefer a more hive-like government.

    Did you say Hive Mind?

    Sorry, Mr. Zimmerman only sought to protect the property of his neighbors.

    That was cool!

    Reminds me of On The Edge with Thayrone X. The dude has an interesting radio program. In Ann Arbor, of all places.

    Google is your friend — look at the map, listen to the 911 calls (from the witness to the beating too), read Zimmerman’s testimony (he said Martin came around the left rear of his vehicle), and think.

    Sure! Of necessity, we tend to move around a bit, and we don’t exactly do “schedules.” But we plan on getting out of “static” mode over the next few months, and the occasional gear review or acerbic commentary on music will be the main focus. It would give you an outlet for your more “ahhtissik” side. And it’s not political, so it’s more fun.

    Right now I’m focused on helping my son Steve move into the complex world of making music pay cash money. We’re a little slow on the web side while he focuses more on studio time. (For a nice, positive take on the day, check out The Rest Of My Day to see what Steve’s doin’ these days).
