Yes, I’m sad for young Trayvon Martin’s parents.  Any parent who loses a child for whatever reason is a sad story.

I’m also sad for all the other parents of young men and women—of all colors—who have been shot or killed in the past few weeks since Martin’s death.  There have been black people killing black people, white people killing white people—but the only story we’re hearing about is this one particular Trayvon Martin story.

Why is that?

It’s because the Trayvon story is nothing but a Smoke Monster.  It’s a giant group of liberals jumping up and down with giant red flags saying, “Look over here!  Look over here! Don’t look that way at the Supreme Court or the fact that gasoline is nearing $5 in California or the fact that Obama’s approval ratings are at an all-time low—none of that matters because look THIS WAY at the injustice of a poor young black man who was brutally murdered by someone who looks like a white guy!”

It is a SMOKE MONSTER, nothing more.  It’s simply a way to distract us from the rest of the problems the Obama administration is facing.  This is Alinsky 101—it’s a sad story for Trayvon’s family (and also Zimmmerman’s for that matter) but otherwise it’s a non-issue in the political grand scheme of things.

The most stunning part of this story is that the democrats are—as usual—are doing just that, trying to turn it into some sort of GOP thing.

According to California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, “almost every Democrat in the California Assembly donned a hoodie, and joined their voices with Assy. Steve Bradford and Speaker John Perez in blaming the ‘white man’ for all the problems in the black community, including the murder of Trayvon Martin. This was embarrassing and extraordinarily inappropriate.”

As one Facebook friend replied, “So the democrats are protesting against a Hispanic democrat in support of a black democrat and blaming white republicans, which were not involved in any way. Sounds logical to me.”

Unfortunately “logic” has nothing to do with it.  This is entirely, 100% a Public Relations ploy.  A way to pull everyone away from the real issues in America and the world by using race-baiting, anger, and any other emotions they can drag out of us.

So please–it’s time to move away from the “Trayvon” story.  We’ve got to stop giving those liberal media-types the time of day and remember that when you poke the giant Smoke Monster with a dose of reality, it all goes away in an instant.  But then again beware–because as soon as one Smoke Monster disappears many more will be lurking right around the corner, waiting to distract and enrage once again…

    Let’s keep our eyes on the ball.  This is a ruse to forget how obama’s agenda is being stuffed down our throats.  Let’s rattle the sabers over here and the american public is diverted.  Not anymore, we still have the keystone pipeline, $5 gas in California, and now the “cushing pipeline” to nowhere.  Kind of like the bridge.  We have syrians being brought over to this country with who knows why backgrounds, are they terrorists or peaceful????? he did this with Hamas refugees and spent $20 million of our american dollars.  We didn’t scream about that either. Get a grip people look at the issues not the ruse.

    With the immature logic being touted by the Democrat leadership (supposedly public servants) there are only two choices left to white conservative Americans.  First we (yep I’m one of ‘em) can sell everything we own, sign all of our posessions over to the black caucus for distribution to all blacks in the U.S.  Or, Secondly, we white conservatives can hang our heads in shame and Kowtow while submitting our lives to supporting whatever venue of the day Al and Jessie want us to.  No, hmm, wait, there is a third choice.  We can realize that we, the white conservative Americans can remember that our forefathers gave much of their lives toward bringing the castout African slaves who were slated to be killed in Africa, to the “New World”.  Few of whom contirbuted one whit to the settling of America, or the War for our freedom as a Nation from England, or the myriad of things that helped our nation realize that no one should live in slavery.  The horrible war of North against South led all states to realize there were injustices being made in class, color, and culture. We as a nation have struggled to right these wrongs for almost 150 years.  YET, it only takes ONE politically motivated issue to cause a majority of black Americans to  bring out every issue and clamour to violence and hatred while segragating themselves from the very people who work (literally) to support their right to hate us.  I have heard that “many” blacks do not support the current uprising…. if so, where are they?  Do they fear their “own” people?  Even our President has made no effort to stop the riotous behavior.  In fact, he fans the flames of hate by his remarks.

    Two crimes not report from the news outlets and neither a
    HATE crime! Look them up if you want to have nightmares!

    On the night of December 14, 2000, the Black criminals
    Reginald and Jonathan Carr, at the climax of an escalating crime spree,
    tortured and sexually abused five Whites — three men and two women — who were
    compelled at gun-point to perform sex acts for the entertainment of their
    captors. One of their victims miraculously escaped; the others were murdered.

    Both of the women were raped, and all five Whites were
    beaten, robbed, forced to kneel naked in sub-freezing weather, shot, and then
    run over with a pickup truck. As a final touch, the Blacks beat and killed a
    small lapdog belonging to one of the victims. The lone survivor of the massacre
    was infected with a venereal disease, courtesy of Reginald Carr.

    They were, thankfully, convicted on capital murder
    charges and have been sentenced to death. Their crimes have, however,
    received scant attention in the controlled media, and thus few Euro-Americans
    outside Kansas have heard of their spectacular savagery.

    On that night, Jan. 6, 2007, 21-year-old Channon
    Christian, and her boyfriend, 23-year-old Hugh Christopher Newsom were
    carjacked in Knoxville by three thugs. Their attackers were sadly not satisfied
    with the Toyota 4-Runner that they commandeered at gunpoint. They kidnapped the
    young couple and took them to the house where one of the perps lived. They were
    joined by a fourth man and a woman. They proceeded to commit the
    stomach-churning crimes.

    All four men are charged with the anal rape of
    Christopher Newsom. They did so in the presence of Channon Christian. They then
    shot him to death, wrapped him in bedding, soaked him in gasoline and set him
    on fire. He was the lucky one.

    Channon Christian was a senior at the University of
    Tennessee. According to the charges and a source close to the investigation,
    she was repeatedly gang raped by the four men — vaginally, anally and orally.
    Before she died, her murderers poured a household cleaner down her throat,
    apparently in an effort to kill the DNA they had placed there. She was left to
    die, either from the bleeding caused “by the tearing,” or from asphyxiation.
    Knoxville officials won’t say.

    Please remember why this gun law was made, remember the

    Women would was killed while on vacation?

    This article implies that people can’t keep more than one thought in their head. The death was unjust and the fact that his killer wasn’t thrown in jail is truly deplorable.  

  5. Plewis1956 says:

    The difference, puposely ignored, is that the murders of other blacks and whites are arrested and brought to justice – unlike the Trayvon Martin murder where the culprit walks free.
