Since the very beginning I’ve been saying there is something seriously wrong with the Trayvon Martin case and that George Zimmerman was being railroaded as a distraction or a planned incitement of racial hostilities in America. Truth is, that’s exactly what’s been going on from the beginning. What was immediately portrayed as a racially motivated murder in cold blood, now seems to be (like I have said many times) to be nothing more than a man shooting another man who was in the process of bashing his head on the sidewalk. Photos and more information have surfaced that make it painfully clear that Zimmerman did not shoot Trayvon out of racial hatred as the MSM tried (and even lied) to make it seem.
But now, in the true sense of leaving no good crisis to go to waste, there seems to be something else behind it as well, a Mayor Bloomberg-led gun control coalition looking to use this fabricated issue as a cornerstone in their efforts to repeal various gun rights in America.
Imagine that. A billionaire 1%er looking to strip the gun rights of the 99% just before the economy goes completely in the tank. Go figure.
“The mother of Florida shooting victim Trayvon Martin appears in a Mother’s Day gun control video produced by an advocacy group led by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Noting that ‘this will be my first Mother’s Day without my son, Trayvon,’ Sybrina Fulton asks viewers to urge their state governors ‘to re-examine similar Stand Your Ground laws throughout the nation to keep our families safe.’
‘Nobody can bring our children back,’ Fulton says in the video, released on Thursday to several websites by a Bloomberg-led gun control coalition called Second Chance on Shoot First.” Daily Mail
Billionaire Bloomberg (net worth in 2012 was 22 billion dollars making him the 11th richest person in the country) has been leading the charge in gun-control legislation around the country and in New York where he is currently serving his third term as mayor since successfully pushing legislation which allowed him to run for office again.
Bloomberg’s campaign called “Second Chance on Shoot First” is an advocacy group looking to roll back legislation which it claims sends criminals out in the streets looking for opportunities to shoot people without good cause. Just food for thought: “Second Chance” and the Second Amendment? Coincidence?
“Prior to “Shoot First,” people had a traditional duty to retreat from a situation outside their home when they could safely do so. Now, afforded immunity and a presumption of lawfulness by the law, armed individuals can seek out opportunities to use deadly force outside their homes. And the hands of law enforcement and prosecutors are tied.” Second Chance on Shoot First
This was the exact narrative that the MSM tried to push during the early stages of the Trayvon Martin case, that Zimmerman was some fake Neighborhood Watch racist who went looking for Trayvon so he could shoot him down in cold blood. It’s almost as if Bloomberg and his advocacy group was writing the script for the media as this was taking place.
Turns out, that was far from what actually happened. Zimmerman was at first described as being not injured at all, turned out to have serious head wounds and a bloody nose and mouth from the fight. This photo was taken a few minutes after the fight and subsequent shooting.
“The police report from the night Martin was shot notes that the back of Zimmerman’s head was wet and that he was bleeding from the nose and head.” New York Post
This seems to corroborate the eyewitness report that he saw Trayvon Martin sitting atop George Zimmerman beating him while Zimmerman screamed for help.
The accusations of racial bias were fast and furious at the beginning of the media coverage even going so far as to attempt to claim that Zimmerman had used the word “coon’ during the 911 call in reference to Trayvon when in fact it turned out what he said was clearly “it’s cold out here”. Then another media “news” service actually audited the 911 call tape in order to make it seem like Zimmerman noted the color of Trayvon’s skin right off the bat when in fact, he had been asked by the 911 dispatcher to identify the suspect’s race.
Lot’s of information about Zimmerman’s life has come out since all of the original hype and disinformation came out including the fact that Zimmerman helped out black families living at the condo complex where this all took place and the fact that he even mentored black kids in Orlando.
But all along his family has been telling the press (with little attention being given to it) that George comes from a mixed race family and that accusations of racial bias in this case were without merit. Now a photo of Zimmerman’s mother and Great Grandfather has emerged negating all the media speculation about the family lying.
Mark Nejame recently went on Piers Morgan Tonight and disclosed this family photo and also, more importantly, talked about Zimmerman’s connections to his black neighbors and the mentoring he did in Orlando.
Nejame has come to a different conclusion about the case. Nejame had been a rather zealous critic of Zimmerman, having been convinced early of his guilt and racist motivations. In fact, the first judge in the Zimmerman trial had to recuse herself from the case because her own husband has a professional relationship with Nejame.
“Talking to people that know him, I have changed my position,” revealed the guest. “People can come up with whatever conclusions they want. But from looking at the facts and the evidence, I don’t think there is a racial motive in there.” Piers Morgan Tonight
“Last month, an investigation by Reuters portrayed George Zimmerman as a trusted aid to most of his black neighbors in the gated community of Sanford, Florida that was plagued by a string of burglaries in the weeks leading up to the shooting of Trayvon Martin.” Daily Mail
Turns out George Zimmerman is just a decent guy who took a rather lengthy ass-whipping and even plead for help before having to resort to using his firearm to defend himself from Trayvon Martin.
When you think about it, this is really a case of simple self-defense and not, as the media has been trying to portray it from the beginning as a case of some guy out there running around “shooting first” for the pure racial hatred of it all. This wasn’t a case of “stand your ground”, it was a case of a guy being viciously attacked and having to finally resort to deadly force. It’s that simple.
Clearly this case has been manipulated from the start. The Governor of Florida assigned a “special prosecutor” who refused to take the case before the Grand Jury because they all knew it would get kicked out.
This isn’t about justice for Trayvon, this is about using Trayvon to disarm the American public and incite racial tensions in an already volatile situation created by the deepening economic crisis. This is about a billionaire banker looking to incite racial hatred at a time when people should be getting angry at him and his 1% brothers. That’s all this is about.
I certainly hope the fauxgressive sites out there who jumped on the Zimmerman lynching bandwagon without ever once questioning the credibility of the facts and the news reports have the decency to publish retractions and reassess their stance on this case like Nejame has. I “hope” they do that, but what I expect is they will once again, bend their frayed self-respect even further and seek to find some obscure, irrelevant tidbit of factoids that allow them to cling to their original wrong understanding of the case so they can avoid learning the hard truth that once again they have been lied to and manipulated by everyone from CNN to Barack Obama.
George Zimmerman is in hiding while Trayvon’s mother has had some eight months of vacation time donated to her by other county workers in Miami-Dade county. Zimmerman is being prosecuted beyond the extent of the law while the mother of the man who attacked him is making psyop videos for a billionaire in New York.
Funny world, ain’t it.
