The Media Discusses “Riot Ideology” In The Trayvon Martin Case….

Generally we are not very fond of Media roundtables critiquing Media News. However, this one does have some poignant perspectives regarding the institutionally aggrieved and their threats to riot if they are not delivered the outcome of their choosing. That outcome would be a tried and guilty verdict for George Zimmerman.

Thanks to the brilliant production department for providing the video, that would be Puddy, and another very special note of appreciation to Fox News for allowing us to share the panel discussion as part of our continuing evaluation of the Trayvon Martin shooting. The panel leads off discussing Alan Dershowitz’s professional opinion of the case.

    After a certain point, responsible people will take over the legacy media. Investors like profits and don’t like to pay through the nose. If there are riots, the media’s culpability will be evidence in civil proceedings. Some will scream censorship, but this was out and out lies and distortion and I don’t think censorship rules apply.

        A local gunshop/range owner was interviewed on our local news yesterday. He said their sales are consistently double what they were a few years ago. Lots of elderly and women taking concealed carry classes. They talk openly of their fear that gun control laws will prevent them from purchasing firearms in the future, and their fear of our current national government.

      The reason the Leftist media and the Civil Rights Bolshevists want to promote racial profiling as the root of all evil in this case is this. It is the easy way out. Without the crutch of profiling and white bigotry to rely on people would have to confront the real problem. That would be the failure of the Great Society and the War on Poverty.

    The political use of this whole thing needs to be deconstructed also. SYG was immediately attacked as was the common sense doctrine of self-defense. Fast and Furious showed that this same group agitating for Zimmerman being made a scapegoat wants the Second Amendment done away with. Claims that Trayvon would be alive if only Zimmerman had not been allowed to have a gun under any circumstances are the underlying political argument. The political herd in Florida immediately folded and started backtracking to take down SYG which is the first step in the ultimate goal of disarming the US population. A helpless and pliant population is the goal.

    It’s nice that they’re pointing the finger at the media, but what about the source of the misinformation and hype?

    Meanwhile, just minutes ago on Chicago’s WGN news, they had a story about GZ’s old MySpace page. To my knowledge they have never reported on how Team Skittles manipulated the facts to portray GZ as a black-hating racist. Apparently one of the prejudiced interns who scours the internet for news latched onto this story on Huffington and an equally prejudiced editor decided that it was worthy of being read by the WGN anchors. The anchors read text stating that GZ wrote racist remarks at “Mexican-Americans”. I guess if they have no evidence that he hates blacks they have to dig up something to prove that he hates someone, anyone.. I’ll be sending them a comment soon.

      First, it has been acknowledged that GZ’s page was hacked, so who knows what was “substituted” on his page.

      Secondly, during that time frame, emotions were running very high in Manassas – higher than the current Trayvon situation. There had been a number of dangerous incidents as a result of the extremely high illegal alien population here, as well as a communist-front “pro-illegal alien” group openly agitating for more violence. A large racist anti-white sign in violation of local codes was hoisted on a vacant lot in downtown Manassas, and a disingenuous, highly inflammatory documentary by two now OFA operatives was filmed and disseminated as PWC became one of the first jurisdictions to try and enforce immigration laws on a local level.

      I blogged about this back in this era as well. It was a highly contentious time. The same rhetoric being deployed by the Martin camp was used in the 9500 Liberty camp – anyone who was for Rule of Law was “racist”, and it was the 9500 Liberty camp that kept raising the level of race-baiting rhetoric. The 9500 Liberty film was financed by Soros/Obama front groups, and used to get out the vote in 2008.

        I see someone updated the MySpace page 3 days ago, so yah, who knows if it has been changed. But GZ has acknowledged that the page was his. It’s hardly a smoking gun though. I’ll bet the people who found the page are extremely disappointed that there weren’t any disparaging remarks about blacks. And in fact it looks like one of the dudes in the pictures is black. A friend of GZ’s? This is the best that they can come up with??

        I want to add that I know Puerto Ricans and Mexicans. They are not complementary toward each other and frequently make disparaging remarks about each other. I wouldn’t doubt that the rivalry exists between other pairs of hispanics. It probably exists among the various Asians and blacks too. It’s a total non-issue, but Team Skittles will try to blow it up into one. I guess next thing we’ll find out is that Trayvon was part Mexican or something. 🙂

            Is it really hard for Team Skittles, most of whom are attorneys, to comprehend the difference? Of course not. They know. They know. Do they really want to lower the bar of hate crime so that one disparaging remark is damning? I don’t think so, else they’d all be in prison….

              GZ 6-7 years ago seems a little more troubled and a lot less admirable. Bottom line, if this is the most negative they can get about GZ’s past…as a GZ supporter we should be happy.

              Team Skittles will be searching high and low for the Holy Grail. Just one instance of GZ ever using the “N” word. They can then crucify him without mercy and the press will fall over themselves to back team Skittles.

              And once that happens….just imagine when GZ is ultimately and inevitably found “Not Guilty”. Bad stuff.

              Just happened to be flipping the channels, and I see on Oreilly they are covering the Norfolk beating. A black guy is saying on TV it’s revenge for Trayvon.

    The Legacy Media is always behind, and this is no exception. The Martin narrative is being turned,and those who put it out there front and center, after being called out, are now trying to walk it back. Those who read here have known this for over a week now. So, the obvious now becomes a “Roundtable Discussion Point”.

    Crump & Co would love us to forget the “DeeDee” narrative and the fanciful tale spun to incarcerate GZ. Not gonna happen. Without “DeeDee” and convenient exclusion of any facts exculpatory to GZ, there is no “probable cause”. Now that the Writ was dropped, we are expected to just “move on”…. Nope. “DeeDee” will remain a significant item of interest for truth-seekers on blogs and social media.

    Likewise, they want us to forget that false narrative about St. Skittles, from the release of disingenuous, old photos to lies that he was suspended for “tardiness”. Now that “No_Limit_Nigga” has been revealed in all his “loose pussy” seeking glory, background narrative is deemed by the LSM no longer important to the issue. Sorry, Crump & Co – you opened the door, and now it is open for thorough inspection and evaluation. And most people don’t like what they are seeing, and are incensed at what was deliberately hidden from them. A blowback against the LSM and professional race-baiting class of major proportions, so now they will need to find something else to deflect attention away from them – hence the 2005 MySpace page. Let’s get the discussion back to what a terrible, racist person GZ allegedly is, instead of talking about the wanton destructive nature of many teens, including those who are on the streets across America now playing “Trayvon Pinata”, and the template we have carefully constructed with our helpers in the Government Media complex to intimidate and silence middle class working whites in America.

    Don’t let the Legacy Media issue some tepid mea culpa on the grave disservice they did to the public, while they shift gears and continue to spin and redirection focus AWAY from the deeply imbedded institutionally supported “shakedown” operation that has been repeated over and over and over again.

      Mark O’Mara responds to the latest “news”:

      A Myspace page that belonged to George Zimmerman in 2005 has been brought to light, and some of the contents of his page have been scrutinized in a Miami Herald article entitled “George Zimmerman’s crude Myspace page from 2005 uncovered.” The O’Mara Law Group has confirmed this page did belong to Mr. Zimmerman, though it was hacked into, and George abandoned it. The identified posts were his.

      The article details a number of statements that will cast Mr. Zimmerman in a less-than-favorable light especially considering the charges he faces. In that regard, it is possible that the statements Mr. Zimmerman made could be used as part of the trial, and therefore it is our policy not to comment directly on items that could become evidence.

      Frances Robles, the Miami Herald reporter that broke the story tweeted “Crump tells me #Zimmerman’s anti-Mexican comments on MySpace show ‘a pattern of profiling.’” We believe that inviting public scrutiny of the contents of this social media account invites scrutiny of the social media accounts of all parties involved. While these social media accounts may be public, we will not comment on them publicly, as they may be part of the evidence produced at trial.

      I thought that Judge Lester prohibited people associated with the case from making “extrajudicial statements”? I hope O’Mara goes after Crump.

TM’s tweets were vile, filthy and degrading to females. Those tweets would destroy any pre-pained picture as TM as this sweet innocent little child who was hunted down like a rabid dog, and shot in cold blood. DeeDee’s tweets show no sense of mourning or shock over TM’s death, yet she appears to be the prosecutors star witness. Imagine how her tweets would affect jurors, after the prosecutor’s relay how distraught she was and had to be hospitalized for stress.

        The “anti-Mexcian comments” by Crump seem overdramatic to me. That paragraph on GZ’s page read more as a context-specific jab than an overall racist attitude toward every living Mexican–like he was fed up by a bad area of town or something.

        Trayvon supporters have said over and over again that his tweets are those of a normal teenager talking about drugs and sex. May I submit that GZ’s myspace page seems like the ramblings of a normal 21-year-old.

        O’Mara is doing ok, but in my view he has made some mistakes. Example 1: He repeatedly allowed the prosecutor to ask Zimmerman questions in the bond hearing including the terminology “you committed this crime” without objecting.

        http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1204/20/cnr.02.html

        UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Ok. And tell me, AFTER YOU COMMITTED THIS CRIME and you spoke to the police, did you ever make that statement to the police, sir? That you were sorry for what you’ve done or their loss?
        ZIMMERMAN: No sir.

        UNIDENTIFIED MALE: But BEFORE YOU COMMITTED THIS CRIME on February 26th, you were arrested — I’m sorry, not arrested. You were questioned that day, right, February 26th?
        ZIMMERMAN: That evening into the 27th.

        An experienced trial attorney that is paying attention will instantly snap to attention and object to those types of questions. Hopefully O’Mara won’t let that stuff slide if it goes to a jury.

        Example 2: He did not accurately handle the discovery delay issue in his statement on the web site. Florida Sunshine Manual:

        http://myfloridalegal.com/webfiles.nsf/WF/KGRG-8RAQUF/$file/2012-SunshineManual.pdf

        With reference to pages 109 and 110 of 352 of the pdf file (the page numbers printed at the bottom of the pages are 97 and 98), he should have admitted making the demand for discovery on April 12, pointed out that he had not yet received the materials, and noted that the files are not public records pursuant to the Florida sunshine statutes and applicable case law until they are actually turned over to the defense. Instead, he stated “We are delaying demanding the discovery until we can file motions to protect these witnesses”, which is clearly contradicted by the April 12 demand for discovery filed with the court.

        It also appears that O’Mara may be handicapped by Zimmerman’s failure to supply complete information. Example 1: O’Mara was not aware of the substantial donated money in Zimmerman’s pay pay account at the time of the bond hearing. This could have been a big problem with a hard core judge. Example 2: Why wasn’t Zimmerman’s 2005 Myspace page taken down? O’Mara announced that he didn’t want Zimmerman to have a web presence. Zimmerman’s contribution web site was taken down, he was already burned once in the media for using “datniggytb” as a user name on one myspace account which was later taken down.

    If you want to get an idea of exactly what the mindset of Trayvon Martin supporters is, follow @HoustonGunBlog on Twitter. They are compiling Tweets which mention Zimmerman, violence, and riots. Every day there are dozens. People are saying “if Zimmerman isn’t convicted, I’m going to Miami and throwing rocks at crackers”, and all sorts of stuff. There are death threats to Zimmerman, etc.

    There are going to be riots. O’Mara was pushing for a delay, but the best thing would be to get this to trial and get the acquittal ASAP(unless he gets the case dismissed, which is possible). If this case gets delayed till fall, and Zimmerman gets acquitted around the time Obama loses Florida, cities are going to burn.

    Of course, if they try LA style riots down here, I suspect the results will be quite different. Cubans and crackers(FL natives) are well armed and won’t sit idly by and watch their property burned and their families murdered.

    I’ve been to several gun shows in the past two months, and dozens since Obama was elected. Gun shows in FL have been busier since the Trayvon shooting than I’ve seen except right before the AWB was passed. Big sellers? All military pattern semi-autos(but especially cheaper AKs), tactical shotguns, and .22 rifles. A person with a scoped 10/22 can do a LOT of damage from 100 yards away.

With the L.A. riots now 20 years behind us and the Martin case before us, it is a good time to consider those words afresh, consider them in light of our noble ideals and too-frequent failings, consider them as if it were you, looking for recourse after justice failed you — again.
    Because, you see, that slogan is not a threat. It’s not a prediction. It’s not even a warning.
    “No justice, no peace” is a certainty.

      Isn’t this teenager mentality? Issue threats to get what you want?

      No problem. If they (Team Skittles and their cult followers) want to act like teenagers, then we’ll treat them like teenagers.

      Romney’s team needs to find a way to leverage this debacle.

        Silence (for now) is the best leverage.

      The Martins are also seeking money. They had to be spitting nails when they learned that GZ had enough supporters to donate over $200 grand for his legal defense and living expense funds. They wanted him so destitute that he and his family starved to death, and had to live in a tent in the desert. I believe Sybrina’s GimmeMoneyNow fund raised less than half the amount of GZ’s.

        Just wait til his new defense fund site is opened. 🙂 I have a feeling it’s going to ‘net far more than $200k. I for one will donate $50 again.

      • minpin make no mistake the one fund that people are checking in fact not have much money reported, but there are MANY different funds and foundations set up. There is also a fund set up to help with legal fees (Crump says he is pro bono). Makes you wonder why the Martins need funds for legal fees NOT – because we already know about the future suits already in mind.

    This ones a classic. And indicative of the Pro-Trayvon mindset. Conspiracy theories are prevalent in the black community to a ridiculous extent.

    Sharpton Assures Radio Caller That Cheney’s Heart Did Not Come From Trayvon Martin

    Al Sharpton benefits more than most radio hosts by having listeners call his show. It lets Sharpton come across as sane by comparison.

    The other day, for example, Sharpton wasted little time dismissing the latest bizarre conspiracy theory making the rounds (audio clip after page break) —

    SHERRY IN SOUTH CAROLINA: I never got a clear understanding of Trayvon’s heart. Was it actually given to Dick Cheney or was it not?

    SHARPTON: No, I don’t know anything, I don’t think they gave Trayvon’s heart to Dick Cheney, no.

    SHERRY IN SOUTH CAROLINA: Did they give it to anyone?

    SHARPTON: As far as I know his heart was not donated to anyone, I have not heard that from the family at all. But I know Dick Cheney didn’t get it.

    SHERRY IN SOUTH CAROLINA: OK, all right. Well, thank you. I’m finally cleared up on that.

    SHARPTON: And that’s, thank you for your call. You see, that’s another thing. They put out outrageous rumors that people don’t know right from wrong. That’s why we need to stay right on these stations and give information, ’cause people innocently can be misinformed not trying to do anything but get the right information ’cause you get inundated by these people that just sit around just fantasizing all day long.

    As conspiracy theories go, this one is so lame that even Sharpton’s not getting sucked in. Martin died Feb. 26, Cheney undergoing surgery nearly a month later, on March 24. Heart transplants must occur within hours of a donor’s death, not weeks later. Furthermore, the six-decade-plus age difference makes Cheney an unlikely recipient of a deceased teenager’s heart.

    To his credit, Sharpton also refrained from suggesting that Cheney would refuse a heart from a person of color.

      And Sharpton’s response doesn’t seem to exhibit much frustration. This is the level of conversation he has all day every day probably. Can you imagine what Rush or Mark Levin would do with that level of idiocy from a conservative caller? (GET OFF THE PHONE, YOU BIG DOPE! for starters)

        Sharp Tongue probably gets trolled a lot, which makes him wary. Now if Sherry would have said she just got raped by 18 white cops and the Duke Lacrosse team and was calling from inside a plastic garbage bag. . . .
