Half cocked America and Trayvon Martin…or how to start a race war…again

Or so it seems.

I hadn’t paid much attention to the Martin/Zimmerman situation until a couple of days ago, until someone sent me the “other side” of the story. I won’t bore you with the details of how the kid was a juvenile delinquent, had been suspended multiple times, yada yada yada. What struck me is that I hadn’t heard this side of the story before. How come? Is there any truth to it or not?

Following that, later on in the day, there’s an article posted in American Spectator about the homeowner/shooter Zimmerman. This article tends to downplay Martin and turn most of the focus, and culpability, on Zimmerman. Vigilante! Over exuberant! Wannabe cop! and so on, and so on.

Here’s what gets me: Those talking about the incident seem bent on leaning hard to one side or another…with neither view admittedly having all of the facts. I’m left asking “Why?”

One, no one seems to knows any more about this incident than the next guy. Of the two guys involved at the scene, one’s not talking and the other is unavailable for comment.
Two, what the hell does this have to do with our situation in America? Energy costs are through the roof, jobless rates are just shy of scary, and we have national debt in the many trillions of dollars. (Until 4 years ago. a trillion dollars was NOT something I even thought about.) The real issue here isn’t Zimmerman, IMO, because young people are being shot dead every day across America. So, what is the real issue?
Three, do we need supposedly grown men using this incident to hurl barbs at one another? Gas-bag Newt thinks it’s newsworthy, and Santorum is flapping his jaws like an obedient parrot. Then there’s Obama, but more on him in a moment.

On top of that pile, let’s throw out the $10,000 reward posted by the Black Panthers for Zimmerman’s arrest. Can anyone say contract hit here?

“He, uh, pulled a gun, and we, ummm, we had to shoot him. Yeah. That’s our story!”

So, correct me if I’m wrong here, but wouldn’t this be a Kodak picture perfect moment for Obama to step up and say “Whoa, hossy! Let’s allow law enforcement to do its job. Nobody go out and get all crazy now. Settle down!” Instead, he talks about how Trayvon could have been his son. Lord. Talk about having a Biden Boo Boo moment. A juvenile delinquent for a son, suspended 3 times from school. I’m so inspired by the man’s parenting skills and acumen. Not!

But, as it is, media is having a field day and the public is being divided down political and racial lines.

“White Supremacist hacks Trayvon Martin’s e-mail account”

Sidebar: I wonder what kind of individual hacked into Sarah Palin’s e-mail account then in ’08? A patriot?

Too many Americans going off half cocked and doing no one any damn good. Aren’t we quite the bunch of characters!

How dost thou opine on the matter?

    I gotta agree that this is exactly the sort of situation that demands a “wait and see” approach. However, that’s not likely to happen.

    The real reason(s)? Twofold: Power and Money.

    The President is in need of something to provide some sort of push amongst his base (or alleged base) to help boost his flagging poll numbers and popularity. As it stands, absent fraud or an attempted coup, there’s no way he gets re-elected.

    This event is also a means for fundraising, and never let it be said that the bottom-feeders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton aren’t willing to support any cause where they can get in front of a camera and potentially make a buck from it. Plus, the President wants more cash and here’s another way to try and ride the coattails of a tragedy to that end. He doesn’t care about the event as long as he can use it to his own political and financial end(s).

    And what about the dead boy’s mom? There she is trying her damndest to tademark her son’s name so as to have a legal claim to also make money from it.

    That whole crew is a bunch of sick puppies, and they get away with it because the MSM acts as their enablers.

    Good post, Mongo. Folks need to see what’s going on here, and sit back and wait for the forensics to come out. People are entitled to their own opinions, but they are NOT entitled to their own facts.

  2. Loony Leftists, like the Kenyan, haven’t the discipline to control their mouths. Others, like Revs. Al and Jesse, won’t because it’s made them rich and, like Howard Hughes, they need “just a little bit more.” Tim has it right. It’s not about justice or civil rights, it’s all about money.

  3. Just noted over at American Spectator that the new Black Panther Party is calling for killing crackers for Trayvon. That the Kenyan’s “administration” is not calling foul on such things says all we need to know about this.

    While many folks, including Blacks and yours truly, are praying for cooler heads to prevail, there is one thing that needs to be remembered here: Whites in America have been playing Cowboys and Indians for too long now, and are damned good at it. Push long enough and hard enough to piss them off, and all they’ll do is change ‘Indians’. Just sayin…
