My Fellow Americans..........by Barack Obama

Good evening.  First, let me address you regarding the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case; I want to apologize for having interjected any opinion before the facts were known.   I did that with the Harvard professor case, too, and I guess I didn't learn my lesson.   But, I come before you today not so much to apologize but to ask something of you.

Trayvon was a young black male whose early pictures, which the media used instead of his older, more negative-appearing ones, show a handsome young boy who seems nice, clean cute, with a great future.  The later ones show a kid who might be veering off that great future's path.    I'm hoping the difference in photos wakes a lot of us up to our kids' futures.

I have to admit the Conservatives got it right when they blogged on this case;  particularly Z, whose blog I read every morning before my day starts ....She said something that will stick with me "Conservatives think ALL children deserve people marching in the streets when they're killed, we don't care what color the child is, they all count."

I feel that way, too, but I haven't always shown it.  I mentioned that Trayvon looks like me and, as Z pointed out here at her blog, he really doesn't so much.  I used a dumb sentiment to make a dumb point, didn't I.  I'm so sorry.   Trayvon shouldn't have been killed, but neither should that little baby who died when gangs shot 37 bullets into her house and she was killed just lying on her family sofa.  A white boy had 16 yr old Black guys douse him with oil and set him on fire.   All of this has to stop.

I'm half black and half white.  I have not worked toward uniting this country as I'd hoped I might.  After Michelle made that ridiculous comment about not feeling proud of America till I was voted for, some white Americans felt a little nervous and I can't blame them.  I've done little to ease that nervousness, that uneasiness.  I'm doing that now.

I call on all Americans, black or white, to wake up and spend more time with their children.   I want schools to be able to teach more and have to discipline less. Parents, it's UP TO YOU.   I mean it, man...this is nuts.   The founding fathers of this great country didn't expect teens of any color to be dying on a daily basis at the hands of other teens.  They raised children who loved America and wanted to promote a good future for her, celebrating good manners instead of scoffing manners them like we do today, encouraging education instead of making kids feel like geeks if they get good grades.

Grades are where it's at, folks!  We want to hire Americans, not the more brilliant Asian and Indian immigrants who come here.  We're glad for those legal immigrants, but since when weren't Americans well enough educated to do the jobs these immigrants are doing?  What's that about?

Listen up, parents.  Your kids are your most precious asset and America's future.  Spend time with them, poor or rich, spend time with your kids and they will be rich in something much better than money.  Encourage them to do well!  I know that my views have sounded in the past like kids shouldn't do well because all they'd be doin' if they did do well is payin' their neighbors' bills, health care, etc.,  but that's stopping, too.   I've decided to become a Conservative, capitalist-pig who loves God and country and I want our kids to stop killing each other.  We need every one of them for our future.

Parents, do your best.  America's counting on you.  Trayvon Martin's death should count for something.  He could have been home doing homework, at a church group, at the library....but he wasn't.  And he's dead now.  George Zimmerman wouldn't have had to be walking the streets trying to keep them safe for his neighbors if that neighborhood hadn't had burglaries, now he's in big trouble.  This all has to stop.

God bless America, and good night.

(by Barack Hussein Obama)

Great post! We can only wish and dream for now!

viburnum said...

Wouldn't it be nice? Dreams are good, but I hope you're not holding your breath.

Division is the fuel that powers the left. Without all that adrenaline driving them people just might stop and think.

Always On Watch said...

Obama would make a speech such as this one only when hell has been frozen over for centuries.

Joe said...

Dear President BO (the child president):

Should we believe what you say in this speech as much as we should believe what you said in all of your other speeches?

Bob and Sue said...

GeeeZ - I reposted your blog on my Facebook site. The little warning that was posted made me wonder if that was ok. If not let me know!

Brooke said...

You certainly 'have a dream', Z!

Silverfiddle said...

Quite a fantasy. I'm glad you're not his speechwriter, Z! This could actually help him reclaim the middle.

lisa said...

Z that was brilliant and the left will disregard it as racist I am sure.
Now the people who should be in jail are Rosanne Barr,Spike Lee and what the heck lets' throw some of those MSNBC and ABC agitators in jail too amongst the "Hoodie" population.

Ducky's here said...

Yeah too bad he had to die but he looked scary.

Hoodies and keffiyahs are guaranteed to get the fringe right in a tizzy.

If you get gunned down, well...

Z said...

WElcome to Geeez, Bob and Sue...
Thanks for reposting on your Facebook site; what kind of warning was it? It's nothing I put on it, maybe Blogger does that? But, please feel free to post it, I appreciate that and your asking me about the warning.

Silverfiddle, that IS the drawback to having a sane, unifying president...reelection!

Everything...I hope we will have a president who'll try to help all children some day soon.

I am hoping the difference in the pictures at least wakes people up to what they see in their kids, changes that might not be beneficial.

Ticker said...

When Hell freezes over as AOW said.

He is too narcissistic to even admit that he MIGHT have been wrong. His type are always right and the rest of us might as well get use to it.

Z said...

Ticker, that's the reality....
but I seem to enjoy writing what I wish others might say!
I suppose we all do that in our heads in 'real life', too, come to think of it!?

In time...you too will meet up with a hoodie... in the dark. I can hear you squealing and crying for the police to come protect you...

But I'm wondering when you'll say the same about the CBC, NAACP, SCLC, NAN, Fat Al and the paternity fraud...jesse jerkson and especially....the black posse / extreme militant anti Semitic anti white...NBPP?

And when...when will you ever...ever have something positive to contribute to these discussions you nasty little bed bug.

Oh I almost forgot libturd....what's your take on the NBPP's Ox Bow incident? Calling out for the abduction , kidnaping and or murder of GZ?

That's not racist? You're such a silly little putz not to even consider where the all racist criminals are popping up lately....among too many blacks is my observation... and the LSM and the demorat party for not making one comment on this.

You align yourself with terrorists and the lowest form of algae pond scum on the planet.

namaste said...

ha! you almost had me, z. then i read how he was wrong too with the harvard professor story and i was like, HUH?! a "wouldn't it be nice if..." post. good stuff! :)

Impertinent said...

"Here we go again. Eric Holder’s Justice Department last month oversaw a guilty plea for solicitation of kidnapping, a federal offense.

Jayen Patel entered a plea in New Jersey for soliciting a purported white supremacist (actually an FBI agent acting as a white supremacist) to conduct a kidnapping.


The New Black Panther Party has put a bounty out on George Zimmerman being taken “dead or alive.” From Eric Holder, crickets.


Will Eric Holder at last open an investigation into the criminal conduct of the New Black Panthers?

Will there be arrests like in the Jayen Patel case? It sure would be a way to put an end to the New Black Panther albatross that hangs around Eric Holder’s neck, and will through November.

And it will be a much heavier albatross with the events in Sanford."



This is the last test folks..if Holder or Pam Bondi in Florida do not seek criminal indictments...than this is proof positive, from the top down that Obama's whole admin is racist beyond a doubt.

And as far as Pam Bondi...shes a typical white wimp afraid of enforcing the law.

Ducky's here said...

Figures that Impertinent would be more concerned with the handful of whackjobs in the NBPP than the fact that a boy was gunned down for no good reason other than the fringe rights constant bed wetting fear of the other .

Thersites said...

Signs of good things to come... :)

CnC said...

Wow Z, I didnt know you had the big guys ear. Hey can you ask him to pop over to my blog and read one of my old posts? since he is now a born again conservative he might get a kick out of this one.

Hey Ducky I copied this but I thought it would be a good respnese to your stupid comment
"

Black man kills two Brits here on vacation. The media was silent, liberals were silent, democrats were silent,
Three black men kill a white
Mississippi college student. Obama silent. Democrats silent. Sharpton and Jackson silent. The media silent. Liberals silent.

Black kids set white kid on fire because he's white. MSNBC silent. Obama silent. Democrats silent. Race pimps silent. Liberals silent.

The left has nothing to gain so they don't care.

lisa said...

Oh and for the record the parents of those British guys are very upset with the president that he offered no apology or condolences to them.

Just goes to show how he treats our "closest allies"

CnC said...

great post by the way !

Leticia said...

Yeah, it's only a dream.

The media is adding more fuel to the fire to cause the division between blacks and whites and I agree it must stop.

I am doing the best that I can to raise godly men who will run to the Lord first before anything else.

Education starts in the home and for goodness sake, NEVER hold back your love and affection from your children. You can be a strict disciplinarian but still give them the love and attention they need. Children must be shown that they are love and live and that security. Otherwise, they will look for it elsewhere.

lisa said...

Well said Leticia,touche'

Z said...

Lib"man"...You're deleted.
When you can talk like a big boy and give us links that make sense (are you nuts with the Santorum one? Do you know anything about parsing? my god), then maybe I'll allow you back.

Nobody EVER EVER comes to my site from the Left and calls my commenters names, by the way. My good people might, in response to some liberal who can't control himself, but that's not done here; not at geeeZ.

And how dare you EVER suggest Americans don't care about the kid's death? do you READ?

Z said...

All great comments, my friends.

Sorry you had to read Lib's stuff; it's gone now and he won't be back, trust me. I'm around enough where he won't last 30 minutes without my seeing it and deleting.

Can't take the time to comment to everyone back (Z's number one rule for any blog) but know I agree and am glad you all appreciated my speech from The Liberal World's ANOINTED ONE>

Ducky's here said...

Trayvon Martin's death should count for something. He could have been home doing homework, at a church group, at the library....but he wasn't.

---------

No, he was just walking home from the store and for that he ws shot dead.

And all the sentiment is focused on defending Zimmerman and the "stand your ground" statute rather than an examination of hysteria. Losing his life may be tragic but it's a small price to pay for giving the gun loons free rein.

Get your official NRA concealed carry hoodie. Only $59.95. Available at the NRA site store.

Thersites said...

Next week the liberals will be having a Fire Sale on masks to wear with their hoodies.... after all... who couldPOSSIBLY mistake someone wearing a mask for a criminal? THAT would just be SO intolerant!

Right Wing Theocrat said...

He can keep the apologies, just go, go now, do not collect welfare, do not whine, do not weasel, go now and don't come back, don't write, don't call, don't tweet, just go.

"fact that a boy was gunned down..."


Watch the racist Freudian slips duckwaack.

Boy???? 6'3" is a boy? Tell ya what ducky....two days a go another 16 year old "boy" like TM was sentenced to life in the slammer for the murder of two innocent British tourists in Sarasota.

This "boy" stripped, raped and didn't even rob them as he shot the two of them in the chest for daring to wander into the hood after taking a wrong turn.

So there's your "boy" pal. And little TM was heading down the same path.

Ticker said...

Duck says:
"No, he was just walking home from the store and for that he was shot dead."

And you know this for a fact? Guess you must have been right there with him to have such deep information on these so called facts.

You have ZERO DUCK. All you know is that he had been to the store as evidenced by the candy and drink. Now please present the hard evidence you seem to have that he was not doing anything other than walking home. I and the others will all be waiting with breathlessness and I am sure that the LEO's and the attorney for the family will be real interested in getting the story right from a direct source.
THERE AIN'T ONE DUCK and you don't know either.

Impertinent said...

Duck... you so foul the air around here when you belch your nonsense. You sick wimpy little..."boy".

Jan said...

Z..I still say that you missed your calling! :)

I would have been fooled, too, but when 'he' mentioned that he always read your blog first thing in the morning, I knew it couldn't be The Great Potentate, Himself.

Not because your blog is not worth reading first thing, but that might take too much effort on his part, and he has said numerous times, that he is 'lazy.'

Good thing he told us, or we would never have guessed.

I'm not surprised about Ducky's, and Libdude's comments. From what Ducky said in his, the point you were making went right over his head, and Lib is only in his very early twenties, so his brain has not, yet, reached its full maturity.

Maybe, when it does, he will be able to gather info from both sides, weigh it carefully, and then make an intelligent comment.

Like you said, we can dream.

Meanwhile, we will consider the source.

Z said...

Jan, thanks...I wondered if anybody read it carefully enough to catch that :-) I was laughing hard when it hit me to include that :-)

Ducky, I was wondering what you think we've been trying to say?
It's laughable that you actually seem to think everybody thinks it's a really good idea a kid's dead. What would make you even think that?

See, Conservatives think EVERY KID deserves a chance. And, if a kid dies, everybody should care; not just when a black kid's killed.
Odd, but we think white and Asian kids and Hispanic kids count, too. Sorry you don't seem to.

Did it ever occur to you to get the facts before you whine or are you just on that Sharpton gravy train of "Oh, GOOD, we can make whitey look REAL BAD"
How irresponsible that pimp's been; more than he's ever been.

Conservatives feel justice must be done...real justice, not what community organizers think.
I love that some of hte black community 'pundits' are saying he was hunted down like a dog. Do you think so?

Do you ever consider that GZ didn't know if TM had a knife when he was on top of him?

Personally, I'm hoping that information comes out about how GZ was treated at the site because it doesn't appear to me that he had a broken nose or lacerations on the back of his head.....
Where's that information?
Somebody keeping it quiet until the whole country's in racist flames?

Pathetic liberals, pathetic race baiters.
Conservatives want TRUE JUSTICE>..and COURTS to declare justice.
And we want a DOJ who isn't racist enough to ignore that the NPP has actually gone vigilante and offered $10K for GZ. unreal.

Impertinent said...

"Pathetic liberals, pathetic race baiters..."


Wonderful...I so wish I had your patience with these anarchists and terrorists. These vigilante racist mobs.....these scum that can't see that if it was wrong 100 years ago or 50 years ago...it's wrong today too.

Deep down...they hate blacks and Hispanics more than they admit it.

Ducky's here said...

Jan, so what's the deal?

The kid looked threatening so he has to conform to your parameters or he gets blown away?

Z can protest all she wishes to but the goal here is that everyone conform. Everyone join your narrow little tribe and things will be all right.

Conformity is freedom?

There's a rage out there, Jan. A serious, serious rage.

Reap the wind and inherit the whirlwind and all the gun loons in town won't protect you.

Ducky's here said...

Ducky, I was wondering what you think we've been trying to say?

--------

You're trying to say that this case should be treated as just another tragedy.

You will NOT come down on the side that says that lousy cracker police dept. should be investigated and the idiotic law that allows you to blow someone away and just say you were threatened should be struck down.

The kid was other . He didn't do a damn thing out of line but you can't take chances.

You want to avoid the salient facts of this case.

Z said...

Ducky, what're you saying, I've said that a kid can't wear a hoodie? He has to wear what we think he should wear? REALLY?

If you don't think a kid who changed from young TM to older TM could be problematic, FINE, who CARES? It's an important observation and, you know what?..you don't see many kids of any color wearing khaki slacks, button down shirts, and robbing or killing.
that's just a fact, Ducky.

Sometimes I honestly believe you ARE this obtuse, not just representing the ridiculous leftist side of most subjects to be perverse. ARE YOU?

What more can I say? I get tired of trying to fill you in and I certainly don't need to defend myself.

This kid shouldn't have died......but from what the witness saw, how would you have known he hadn't a gun?


The case needs real investigation, not pimps 'raging' everybody up...that's dangerous and stupid.
There's a "SERIOUS SERIOUS RAGE" (scared, Ducky?:-) out there because your media's whipping them up...open your eyes and pay attention.

You've got a DOJ not arresting people who've put a bounty on someone's head...that thrill you? Man.

Ducky's here said...

911 tape:

"They always get away f****** coons"
-- George Zimmerman

And this guy isn't under arrest?

Z said...

Ducky...per your most recent comment?
you're following your liberal *** dream and putting words in all our mouths. nobody cares what you think of our viewpoints and you're DEAD WRONG.

By the way, I HAVE NEVER MENTIONED THAT LAW IN THESE DISCUSSIONS..EVER...find it, I dare you.

"Cracker police dept?" man...what racist you are.

Z said...

If he said that, he's SCUM, Ducky....who wouldn't think so?
SCUM.

And it still doesn't mean he killed the kid in anything but self defense.

Z said...

Ducky, honestly...you're fighting so hard you'd think TM was a muslim.

Impertinent said...

"They always get away f****** coons"
-- George Zimmerman...

And this guy isn't under arrest?"


So what is it duck? You want him busted for an asinine racial slur ( yet to be proven ) or death, abduction and murdered by a black militia cause he defended himself?

If that's what GZ said...he's a dope...but this is how TM referred to himself...:

Martin tweeted under the handle “NO_LIMIT_NIGGA

Kid said...

Seriously... Isn't it pathetic much of 'the media' are still showing the years old pictures of the two people involved in this tragedy?

What sticks with me still though is that I feel strongly Zimmerman should have identified himself and announced he had a weapon. I still haven't heard that he'd done that. That changes the whole picture.

Would you attack someone who you think is on your a*? many people would
Would you attack someone who you know is armed with a gun? Only the moronic insane would.

Then again, Zimmerman may have announced he had a gun. All the facts are most definitely not out in this case.

Impertinent said...

"Then again, Zimmerman may have announced he had a gun."

Not a wise thing to do Kid. Matter of fact I remember some where in my training and Florida statutes that that's a definite no no.

I'll have to check with my cop friend who trains our police force on weapons and is the PD's instructor and range officer.

It'd be considered "bravado" and might just exacerbate a situation. At least I can see how it might. Weapons are not spoken of nor displayed in any instance...unless accidentally or inadvertently. Florida had been considering becoming an open carry state, as it once was in the 70's....but last June with a revamp of the concealed laws decided not to prosecute or arrest for simple "painting" of a weapon on your person.

It was pretty absurd that you were expected to have it concealed but if someone saw the bulge or outline under a shirt or something...they'd freak out and call a cop.

Most cops I asked in town were in favor of open carry BTW. They didn't have to guess and you damned well better have a permit if you were carrying openly. Up until January California was open carry too.

Impertinent said...

BTW...I don't think GZ would have announced he was armed either....if he had...I doubt if the kid would have jumped him.

Kid said...

IMP. I'm just thinking iin the following terms.

If a cop was patrolling the gated community, the uniform would have left no question where a gun was in play.

Zimmerman put himself in the same context but because of his dress, did not convey he had a weapon. He should have said something like - I'm neighborhood watch and I'm armed. I need to know why you are in a gated community clearly marked as private.

I think that's an entirely different situation.

Impertinent said...

"CNN’s Anderson Cooper questioned New Black Panther Party spokesman, Minister Mikhail Muhammad, over his group’s involvement in the Trayvon Martin case, exposing the party’s racism.

Cooper: But I mean, just—factually speaking, what you’re saying does not make sense that under the Constitution you can make a citizens’ arrest.

You can’t arrest somebody if they have not been charged with anything that’s still being investigated.

Muhammad: Well, according to the street law, he has been charged with murder.

Cooper: According to the what?

Muhammad: We have 40—30,000 people out here today—according to street law, according to God’s law. Andy, I want to say I don’t obey the white man’s law, I don’t follow the American law. The American law—the American law does not protect me, Anderson. I’m not a citizen.

So I have no right to respect American law. So we decided to (unintelligible) language, to put pressure on the United Snakes, because these are snakes, government to arrest him.

Because when the people find him, he may not be alive. So do your job. Do your job."


This is the doofus slime ducky and libturd identify with and defend.

Jan said...

Ducky, your logic and mind set are beyond me, so there's not much that can be said, really, other than the fact that you are very, very, misguided.

What happened is a tragedy, for all concerned, but what you, and all the people coming out with their pure hatred want, is to lynch George Zimmerman, regardless of the facts. It's not even about that law that you mentioned, no matter how loud you, and they, scream about it, and it isn't about whether or not the kid was wearing a hoodie; what it is about, is stirring up race, and class warfare.

It's pure hypocrisy.

The same people who holler the loudest about there being no arrest, are the same ones who always talk about the injustices done to minorities, saying that they are unfairly convicted. Never mind that they are, most of the time, guilty of the crimes for which they are charged. It works both ways, Ducky, because whites are treated that way, too, if they happen to be in a certain class, and unable to afford good legal counsel.

Yes, there is a lot of rage, and much of it is a direct result of how this entire thing is being handled, on both sides, but most of it is a result of resentment that has built up over years.

The saddest thing is that the poor parents of the young man are being used to further the agendas of others who couldn't care less about him. If they did, they would cry out against the injustice of ALL of the black kids killed by other blacks. Weren't the lives of those kids just as precious as that of Trayvon's?

Maybe it's just me, but I'll bet the instigators wreaking havoc down in Florida were surprised when they saw that Zinmmerman was Hispanic, but that didn't let that stop them, and besides, the journalists started calling him a white Hispanic, so that justified it, a little, in their minds, I guess.

And Ducky, you have no idea what my parameters are, but I can assure you that they are not as narrow as you think.

I think it's pretty narrow minded of you, though, to automatically assume that someone was shot dead, just because they were of a particular color, and wearing a hoodie, and presuming them innocent, and the shooter guilty, not knowing all the facts.

Impertinent said...

"If a cop was patrolling the gated community, the uniform would have left no question where a gun was in play..."


Of course and I agree. But he was not a cop and not entitled to brandish or warn of a weapon. I just checked with my bud.

On the other hand KId..we don't know if he did or didn't identify himself....he may have before the kid punched him out and attacked him. And I'l stick too that too.

Only cause the very real stats back that up according to the National Crime Victim Survey.

Kid said...

IMP, Yes sir. I have no idea if Zimmerman identified himself or announced the weapon.

They say in situations like this, it takes about 10 versions before you get anywhere near reality. This one probably won't break the mold.

Z said...

Imp! Are you KIDDING ME??
"Muhammad: Well, according to the street law, he has been charged with murder.

He's not a citizen and "I have no right to respect American law"?

First, he's an illiterate RUBE "I have no RIGHT to respect.." What a rube.
Second...if you're not a citizen, GO HOME, we ARE citizens and we're not putting up with your threats to a fellow citizen.

WHERE THE HECK IS THE DOJ??

"according to STREET LAW?" who ARE these idiot thugs?

Z said...

Jan, thanks for your excellent input......you said "but most of it is a result of resentment that has built up over years."

Can you IMAGINE if the race bait pimps like Jackson and Sharpton weren't always picking on EVERY SINGLE THING they can get their hands on which will put them in the spotlight and discourage Blacks AND Whites?
Every white American I KNOW is NO RACIST...I hate to surprise people here, but that's the case.
And, I believe most Black Americans agree with that deep down in their hearts.
But, let Sharpton and Jackson jump around demanding they've been insulted over anything, and people do get riled up.

I sang Gospel yesterday with seven black singers...who were AMAZING. Think anybody in the 200+ audience was thinking RACE as they listened to the spectacular singers? :-)

If ONLY we could live our lives as AMERICANS and get over the crap the leftwinger Black PIMPS perpetrate and worsen.

Always On Watch said...

Duck,
Zimmerman said "coons"? Really? I thought that it had been determined that he actually said "punks."

that lousy cracker police dept. should be investigated and the idiotic law that allows you to blow someone away and just say you were threatened should be struck down

Investigated? Absolutely.

Does that Stand Your Ground law say what you claim?

Ed Bonderenka said...

If Ducky didn't exist, we'd have to make him up, just to enliven the discussion the way it does here.
"Make him up...." Waitaminnit.
Nawwwww, Z wouldn't do that.:)
BTW, there's an interesting Akira Kurosawa film (well, actually about twenty), but the one I'm thinking of is Rashomon, in which an incident occurs and is described by four different characters.
Every time you think you know what happened, another characters describes it differently.
It makes the point that even if you were there, you probably don't know what happened.

Rita said...

Ed: There's a podcast of AOW's show where Z was the guest and Ducky called in. He sounded just like he does here, with a thick New England accent.

It would be funnier if Z had made him up.

Btw, you should hear Z's voice. There's no doubt she's a wonderful singer. Just her speaking voice is melodious.

blindddhorse said...

Zimmerman had a right to carry a gun by law, as I do,if his record is as clean as mine. He does not have a right to put himself in the position that he did. No one will ever take my gun away from me without a fight..period. I do have enough sense not to allow myself to be put in the position this hot head did.
Zimmerman was a hot head(wanna be cop)as Martin( wanna be thug)might have been. I blame both for putting themselves in this situation but Martin did not deserve to die. I don't know if Zimmerman should be in jail. I do not know the Florida law. Morally, which is not law yes...he should rot in jail.
I lived in a town for 40 yrs that had a black population of 29% from which I carried a gun everyday (high crime rate).I now live in town that has less then 1% population of blacks, do I carry a gun now? No(low crime rate). Do I feel safer here? Yes, Why? Because there is less crime. Am I a racist against blacks as a white man? Somewhat yes,by the definition of what most call racism.There in lies the problem.I am racist by the definition of what blacks and some whites call racist. In myself I don't see me as a racist. Why??????? Because I don't care what your skin color is, I do care about how you act and who you are period..........
In the town I was born and raised in my wife and daughter did not go to the store at night that was only 1 block away from our home. The reason.. they might get raped or talked trash to by a black man..... and I have proof it was not safe. Here, in the town I now live in, I do not worry about them why?????? You tell me.
Yes, there is a problem with black and white. Both sides have their own problems. If you want me to stop being racist by your definition then solve the problem and stop blaming me.
Don't ask me to take the fear away when the problem still exists.
But no matter how you see it, the president of the United States of America should not have exploited the Death of Trayvon Martin for his political agenda.

How’s that Hopey-Changey Thing Working Out for Ya? said...

It's all about Principles,
Look, even the NAACP told to Sharpton: Fxxx off.

SANFORD, Fla. - The Rev. Al Sharpton said Friday his National Action Network will “move to the next level” if George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Sharpton called for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions, although he did not say what those sanctions might be.
Turner Clayton, the Seminole County chapter president of the NAACP, reacted immediately to Sharpton’s warning, saying, “We hope that the citizens of Sanford will govern themselves accordingly. We are not calling for any sanctions, against any business or anyone else. And, of course, what Rev. Sharpton does, that’s strictly the [National] Action Network. We can’t condone that part of the conversation, if that’s what he said.”
Clayton said he believes that the expected 3,000 people who will attend Saturday’s march and rally in Sanford will realize the difference between Sharpton’s message and the NAACP’s mission.
“I don’t think they can confuse that,” Clayton said. “It’s just that they will have to make a judgment as to whether they want to follow the mission of the NAACP or follow what the Rev. Sharpton said.”

Imp said:But I'm wondering when you'll say the same about the CBC, NAACP, SCLC, NAN, Fat Al and the paternity fraud...jesse jerkson and especially....the black posse / extreme militant anti Semitic anti white...NBPP?

It was on the local news down here and I'm sure that you'll not see on the national level but, an interview was done with a local NAACP leader and they're NOT very happy with what Sharpton is trying to do in all this!

I haven't read or heard with the national NAACP is saying......

Rita said...

You wanna know how it can get worse folks?

Zimmerman in a trial and is found not guilty.

Sharpton and his ilk are setting us up for some real trouble now.

There is no possible way Zimmerman could even GET a fair trial IF he should be tried.

They've carried this so far, there doesn't appear to be a peaceful solution.

Sharpton won't be happy until he causes a race war.

AOW, it's only the racist leftwing sites saying C***...you're right; that word is indistinguishable on the tapes...I've heard them.

Ed, I've 'known' Ducky for almost 15 years from FrontPageMag. Nobody made him up except his parents :-)

Rita, thanks. I WISH they'd been able to record Thursday's show...I had such a hot accompanist I sang to heights I never have..literally never have. Amazing gospel pianist...and gospel singers. it was so much fun.
Orson Bean was there and I thought he'd heard me but he got there right after I sang and just this morning emailed me telling me that (I saw him afterwards but we couldn't talk, just waved) his wife Alley raved about my song. Felt good, but I SO SO SO wish Orson had come in time :-(
And, Rita...I believe Sharpton is hoping of a racist fight and am warmed at the fact that PLENTY of BLacks are saying his reaction is NUTS now. I even saw a Black journalist on CNN say that, believe it or not.

Lib...had to delete you. We don't take name calling. And, just a hint; READ THE COMMENTS before you comment, it'll make you look just a LIIIIITTTLE less dumb. thanks

Ahhhh...the new popularity of the "hoodie"..

From Breitbart:

"Former Black Panther Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) made quite a fuss when he donned a “hoodie” during a speech in the U.S. House of Representatives until he was escorted out. At the time, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “applauded his courage” for doing so.

Meanwhile, back home in Rush’s district, two men wearing hooded sweatshirts, or “hoodies,” were the shooters in an incident that left one dead and five injured.

In fact, during a span of six-hours Thursday night, 13 people were shot, leaving two dead in Chicago.

It would seem it takes more courage to simply walk down the street in Rush’s district than it does to wear a hooded sweatshirt in the House of Representatives."


Remember...this is shitcago....Obama's home...and his right hand ax man....emmanuel...who's the MAYOR NOW?

Z said...

Imp, how awful about those shootings.
Breitbart's site gets it right, of course.

In the state our congress is in now, why would anyone need courage to emulate the apparel of punks? Sure, that's applauded!
We all know that not all hoodie wearers are killers or burglars, not even CLOSE, but to do what Bobby Rush did is unforgivable...
I wonder if he even heard there were killings in his district. After all, to a lefty, it doesn't really matter if the killer might have been black.

Impertinent said...

"Imp, how awful about those shootings..."

Yup...I agree. But if the so called "leaders" in black districts are satisfied with their constituents living in virtual and real combat zones....and they don't bounce them out...march against the violence...demand "justice" from the likes of rush or sharpton. jackson...the clueless NAACP, CORE, NAN, CBC, BETand...the vaunted SPLC...who can label white "terrorism"....vs black terrorists....

Who am I to say that they don't like it the way it is? They must like it....they don't do one dang thing about it.

And if the felons that make up the majority of the membership of the NBPP wants to fight...let them fight the true terrorists in black urban environments.

Z said...

Imp, have you seen a guy named CL Bryant? He is totally against the way the black pimps like Sharpton have treated the Trayvon mess and he used to be a chapter president of the NAACP!
Instead, he got this from Black leftwingers:

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/roland-martin-slams-fmr-naacp-pres-for-criticism-of-al-sharpton-jesse-jackson-in-trayvon-case/

It's like they're little kids looking for more trouble than they need. IF ONLY white America could see more people like Bryant, who are reasoned, smart, and SANE.

Impertinent said...

"
It's like they're little kids looking for more trouble than they need.."



Don't get me started on the apparent infantilism of so many to be put on a leash by these dopes and pulled around at will.

Problem....sane, rational, peaceful, committed men like CL are as rare as snow in the Mojave Desert.

They feed off of violence...they feed off of hatred. Don't ever tell me that sharpton and jackson are not the most vile, racist white hating ignorant POS that the world has ever seen.

Black Hitlers period. Just substitute "justice" with vengeance and Jews instead of whites and you have the same mix as Adolph.

Bob said...

When a black man kills a black man, nobody cares.

When a Mexican kills a Mexican, nobody cares.

When an Hispanic man kills a black man, he gets called a white man and black people put a bounty on his head.

This is the way it is in the Land of Bizarro Obama.

Impertinent said...

"When a Mexican kills a Mexican, nobody caresWhen a Mexican kills a Mexican, nobody cares.."


Or when Eric Holder kills about 300 of them and a couple Border Agents too.

Holder only cares when a white "steps" into the twisted racist world of his DOJ and Obama's.

Ed Bonderenka said...

I just heard about a group of black kids from the south who were in NYC to see a musical called "Memphis".
They were attending a class to learn about discrimination. They'd heard their grandparents talk about it....
From the south!
Had to be taught about discrimination!
But we're a racist country.

Impertinent said...

"group of black kids from the south who were in NYC..."


They'd have been better off and saved their money by going to Sanford and see the real "musical" called
"Rampant Black Bigotry" as a live street performance. And get to watch the main minstrels and terrible actors up close and personal. All free from the "Snivel Right"s pimps.

Then they could have been recruited by the NBPP into Islamic "culture", street justice, vigilantism and bounty-ism.

While pumping their fists in the air and trashing a small southern town.

Z said...

Ed, that's a perfect example of what we all know. The racist pimp contingency of Black AMerica is teaching our kids there's racism where it isn't.
If this Travyon Martin isn't a lot of that, I don't know what is.

The thing happened, investigation should be thorough and quick, witnesses should be spoken to, the paramedics who came out's information SHOULD be made available to show if GZ was hurt or not.........

EVERY CHILD COUNTS, not just one killed by a white man on a dark, rainy night. But, real truth and justice aren't the vital things to Sharpton and Jackson as they are to us, apparently.

Impertinent said...

"vital things to Sharpton and Jackson as they are to us, apparently..."

Been talking to a couple friends up that way Z...getting real ugly. Sharpton is taking big..big risks up there. Seminole County is not like the southern counties that make up Miami, Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches.

We're a tad more....errrr...patient down here in a large sprawling urban environment. Bumper to bumper at 80 mph with 4 inches between door handles.

They are angry up there in farm country.

Impertinent said...

The full text of Spike Lee's apology:

"I deeply apologize to the McClain family for nearly getting them killed.

You see, I was merely trying to get George Zimmerman and his family assassinated."


Why did he tweet ANY address....especially one that he THOUGHT was at the center of this whole mess????

Answer, he wanted to see some mob "justice" in action.

Impertinent said...

And as long as I mentioned Spike Lee's "quote" ( More of a wish due to his deep seated racism and hatred of whites ) ....here's an actual cherry one / two / three... from Malcom X and Obama.

"You will never get real freedom and recognition between black and white people in this country without destroying the country, without destroying the present political system, without destroying the present economic system, without rewriting the entire constitution.

It will be a complete destruction of everything that America supposedly stands for.

– Malcolm X


Only Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me. The blunt poetry of his words. His unadorned insistence on respect. He promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline.

– Barack Hussein Obama


But my journey is part of a larger journey – one shared by all who’ve ever sought to apply the values of their faith to our society. It’s a journey that takes us back to our nation’s founding, when none other than a UCC church inspired the Boston Tea Party and helped bring an Empire to its knees.

– Barack Hussein Obama



There's your "post racial President".

Rita said...

Imp, the farm country is getting angry at who? Sharpton, etc? It's as if they don't care what kind of violence they are inciting.

There is enough Black vs Hispanic violence to go around, but this it starting it between Blacks and Hispanics and White.

At this point Obama really needs to step in and settle everyone down. THIS is when he should speak up. Sharpton and the NBPP have taken this too far.

Either some breaking news story needs to replace this or we are looking at some real trouble real soon.

Impertinent said...

"the farm country is getting angry at who? Sharpton, etc?"

Yes Rita. they're not going to sit by idly watching another Reginald Denny recreation. There's this extreme tension that this scumbag pimp has started.

It's extremely dangerous and doesn't bode well for the interlopers or the locals. They're not likely to sit back like stupid bobble heads. Chances are someone is going to react against this racist black army form Atlanta and New York.

"Either some breaking news story needs to replace this or we are looking at some real trouble real soon."

More than likely it will be self defense against the mobs and hordes of ginned up hateful hoodlums over running that town.

Not everyone in America is too cowardly to sit by and watch this happen without some reacting.

Impertinent said...

Sorry if it's long..but it is WORTH the read:

"If it had been a white teenager who was shot, and a 28-year-old black guy who shot him, the black guy would have been arrested.

So assert those demanding the arrest of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

And they may be right.

Yet if Trayvon had been shot dead by a black neighborhood watch volunteer, Jesse Jackson would not have been in a pulpit in Sanford, Fla., howling that he had been “murdered and martyred.”

Maxine Waters would not be screaming “hate crime.”

Rep. Hank Johnson would not be raging that Trayvon had been “executed.” And ex-Black Panther Bobby Rush would not have been wearing a hoodie in the well of the House.

Which tells you what this whipped-up hysteria is all about.

It is not about finding the truth about what happened that night in Sanford when Zimmerman followed Trayvon in his SUV, and the two wound up in a fight, with Trayvon dead.

It is about the exacerbation of and the exploitation of racial conflict.

And it is about an irreconcilable conflict of visions about what the real America is in the year 2012.

Zimmerman “profiled” Trayvon, we are told. And perhaps he did.

He saw a male. And males are 90 percent of prison inmates. He saw a stranger over 6 feet tall. And he saw a black man or youth with a hood over his head.

Why would this raise Zimmerman’s antennae?

Perhaps because black males between 16 and 36, though only 2 to 3 percent of the population, are responsible for a third of all our crimes.

In some cities, 40 percent of all black males are in jail or prison, on probation or parole, or have criminal records. This is not a product of white racism but of prosecutions and convictions of criminal acts.

For all the abuse he has received, Geraldo Rivera had a point.

Whenever cable TV runs hidden-camera footage of a liquor or convenience store being held up and someone behind the counter being shot, the perp is often a black male wearing a hoodie.

Listening to the heated rhetoric coming from demonstrations around the country, from the Black Caucus and TV talkers—about how America is a terrifying place for young black males to grow up in because of the constant danger from white vigilantes—one wonders what country of the mind these people are living in.

The real America is a country where the black crime rate is seven times as high as the white rate. It is a country where white criminals choose black victims in 3 percent of their crimes, but black criminals choose white victims in 45 percent of their crimes.

Black journalists point to the racism manifest even in progressive cities, where cabs deliberately pass them by to pick up white folks down the block.

As Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has written, from January to June 2008 in New York City, 83 percent of all identified gun assailants were black and 15 percent were Hispanics.

Together, blacks and Hispanics accounted for 98 percent of gun assaults.

Translated: If a cabdriver is going to be mugged or murdered in New York City by a fare, 49 times out of 50 his assailant or killer will be black or Hispanic.

Fernando Mateo of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers has told his drivers, “Profile your passengers” for your own protection. “The God’s honest truth is that 99 percent of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these guys are blacks and Hispanics.”

Some Sanford police believed Zimmerman; others did not.

But now that it is being investigated by a special prosecutor, the FBI, the Justice Department and a coming grand jury, what is the purpose of this venomous portrayal of George Zimmerman?

As yet convicted of no crime, he is being crucified in the arena of public opinion as a hate-crime monster and murderer.

Is this our idea of justice?

No. But if the purpose here is to turn this into a national black-white face-off, instead of a mutual search for truth and justice, it is succeeding marvelously well."

Imp...I think they're hoping for a big reaction.
As for your long piece; there are few of us who haven't said practically all that the excellent article says in the comments on this post and the other TM/GZ post.

Odd that bloggers come here and condemn us for judging anybody but they don't mind reading article after article from more famous political/cultural writers..and they'll watch TV news about this case all night.

Impertinent said...

"Imp...I think they're hoping for a big reaction..."

Yea...and I hope the Governor has the Guard on standby. Cause they'll do a "watts" on Sanford sure as the day is long.

Ducky's here said...

z, did you take down some photos?

I know a few that are not of Trayvon Martin and originated on Stormfront are popular with the Impertinent crowd so maybe you did the right thing.

Elmers Brother said...

I just wonder what duhkkky has against Hispanic Democrats?

Ducky's here said...

I can't stand gun loons who walk on aggravated manslaughter.

Elmers Brother said...

Evidently you can't stand due process either. Didn't you say you owned a gun?

Elmers Brother said...

If it turns out it was self defense you'd be the gun nut thinking one can own one and not use it

Maybe you packed those pictures away with your copy of The Protocols of Zion duhkkkstr.
