Sleepy Time Thought: 4/11/2012
Poor George Zimmerman, all he wanted to do is shoot a dangerous criminal and get away with it. Instead, he’s being charged with 2nd degree murder for shooting an unarmed 17 year old on his way home. Where’s the justice for Zimmerman, I ask you? Well, nowhere actually. He’s a murderer, so screw’em. I never get tired of repeating this but Zimmerman got out of his car and approached Martin. That’s the end of the “shoot first” defense. Done. Period. No mas. You cannot instigate a confrontation and then claim to be acting in self-defense because you got your ass kicked. That’s assuming he actually had the broken nose and laceration on his head from being slammed into the ground repeatedly.
There are those that are using this moment to take a good, hard look at the “shoot first” law and those that are using this moment to unleash their inner Klansman. The former are the ones that warned that this kind of thing would happen. If you tell people they can shoot anyone that “threatens” them, then they’re going to take the opportunity to dish out some “justice” knowing full well that they can get away with it. Look at the guy in Texas that killed two men he thought were robbing his neighbor’s house. He got away with it. Why? He was white and they were Hispanic. Unless you can concieve on an instance where a Hispanic man could gun down two white men breaking into the house next door and not be sentenced to life in jail? Good luck with that.
The latter has brought even more shame then usual on to the conservative movement. As liberals took up the rallying cry for justice for a teenager shot simply because he was black, conservatives responded the only way they knew how: take the other side and sling mud. Trayvon was magically transformed into a drug-dealing, gang-banging, thieving, violent, low life n****r that had it coming. Zimmerman became a victim of black aggression and racism. Poor, poor innocent Zimmerman. He was just defending himself from a scary Negro! Once again, the right has demonstrated that it stands for nothing, only against anything they hate. Zimmerman’s best hope now is to pack the jury with Fox News viewers. How sad is that?
Sleep tight you filthy liberal scum!
