Zimmerman verdict: Marxists’ predictable response

holder_weaselfaceBlowback from the recent verdict acquitting George Zimmerman of second-degree murder in the Feb. 26, 2012, death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin defies all logic and common sense but is an object lesson in the duplicity and opportunism of the radical left. This would include the Obama administration, which is attempting to use contrived activism to attenuate the scrutiny under which it finds itself, as well as advancing its gun control agenda and dividing Americans.

Activists and the press made the Martin-Zimmerman tragedy about race; any argument to the contrary is based either in politics or gross misinformation. Thus, due to politics, gross misinformation (as well as outright propaganda and the most outrageous lies) abounded from the outset.

George Zimmerman, who is not white, was represented as a predatory, slavering white bigot. Trayvon Martin was portrayed as a smiling, carefree waif, skipping home to enjoy his iced tea and Skittles. Both made fatal errors of judgment that night, but the fact is that with the exception of some misconceptions Martin had about Zimmerman (that he was white, for example), there was no consideration of race prior to the shooting, and no racial profiling on Zimmerman’s part. Lies were told by the press, politicos and activists; news networks manipulated evidence; and President Obama fueled the fires of division with his now-famous “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

Anthea Butler: Typical Raggedy Communist

antheabutler1It is a matter of public record that in the last century, the goals of American communists were to insinuate themselves into academia, the press, and politics. So, communists began to infiltrate academia, and obviously they were very successful. As David Horowitz has written at length, New York-based communists in the New York public school system laid out a plan for reworking school syllabi and social engineering that began with America’s children. This model became the template for public education throughout America’s public schools, most notably in large urban areas.

At the college level, of course, Marxist professors began to churn out Marxist-indoctrinated graduates, and – more importantly – even more communist professors. Many of these were schooled in concepts of “Social Justice,” which gave rise to “Liberation Theology” and “Black Liberation Theology” as crafted by James Cone. Since the 1960s, there has been an influx of these so-called educators, some of whom went into the fields of Religious Studies in order to lend legitimacy to their radical views. Thus, they have been able to indoctrinate university students and subvert the mainstream Christian Church at the same time.

This has brought us to the point where we have former terrorist and convicted murderer Katherine Boudin holding a professorship at New York’s Columbia University, and such notables as former domestic terrorist and Obama pal Bill Ayers, Angela Davis, and Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones) in similar positions.

“God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. As a black woman in an [sic] nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god. As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.”

–          Prof. Anthea Butler, July 15 2013

Which brings us to University of Pennsylvania’s Professor Anthea Butler who, in a July 15 blog post, argued that God must be a “white racist god” due to the not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. I reprint this in its entirety not only to illustrate what passes for a university professor these days, but to underscore the twisted and heretical views of these Marxists who masquerade as theologians.

Liberals killed Trayvon Martin, and Jamiel Shaw, and…

trayvon_jamiel1What we do know for sure about the night of February 26, 2012 is that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin to death in Sanford, Florida, later claiming self-defense. Despite altogether too many having made up their minds about who was to blame within minutes of hearing of the incident, and the biased, tainted press reports, enough facts have subsequently shaken out that I believe a reliable determination can now be made as to why Martin died that night.

Other than the summary accusations and presumptions of racism on Zimmerman’s part, very little has come to light towards definitively affirming the mixed-race (Latino-Caucasian) neighborhood watch participant as a racist individual. Quite the opposite, in fact: Zimmerman’s actions and activities in the weeks and years prior suggest that he was anything but racially-biased.

Given the statutes governing those possessing concealed carry permits for firearms (as did Zimmerman), the names of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman would have been long forgotten by now were it not for the ensuing politicization surrounding the racial component here. Typically, these statutes do not demand that one waits to be physically overpowered before discharging their weapon.
