Zimmerman Verdict

30 posts in this topic

I believe that the evidence was clear that Martin threw the first punch when he struck him in the nose and knocked him down.

I don't think there's any such evidence beside Zimmerman's testimony.

The neighbor came out and saw the fight after Martin knocked Zimmerman down with his nose broken. Zimmerman was already on the ground with his head being punched and bashed against the pavement. Zimmerman took his gun out, on the verge of losing consciousness, far too late, but was taken be surprise.

Here is more, from the Washington Times, on Obama's perpetual race mongering as his natural reaction with his "it could have been my son" shot off the top of his head when he first heard of the violent event in Florida, and followed by it "could have been me 35 years ago":..

And here is how Obama was deliberately presenting himself 35 years ago (1980):

Can anyone not figure out why "locks clicked" and women "held their breath" when this creep got near them, and that it had nothing to do with racism? Can anyone not figure out why this is still the case?

Why oh why can't people see that race has nothing to do with culture. I wrote this previously because it is the only way to defend oneself from the 'racist' charge when discussing culture.

Race has everything to do with their "culture". When they were chagrined to find out that the name "Zimmerman" did not imply "white", they had to promote the mischaracterization "white hispanic" to create a racist, false perceptual image to stand for their tribalist 'ethnic' collectivism through which they see everything.

Their obsession with 'ethnicity' and tribal "history" and "experience" is racist in character; the explicit racism is only the crudest expression of their tribalism. See Ayn Rand's "Global Balkanization" in Return of the Primitive, which provides an excellent analysis of this mentality.

Their "culture" of tribalism was illustrated in Obama's statement, "I think it’s important to recognize that the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that — that doesn’t go away.” Obama has been privileged all his life, but he is obsessed with his racist, snarling, resentful "narrative" as a way of "looking at issues" in the name of some other claimed "experience" and "history" that "won't go away" and won't permit objectivity. He won't let it "go away". It's who he is.

I call these people neo-racists. They are racists who claim to be victims of racism, yet cannot see when there is no racism in any issue.

Racists always blame race and warring ethnic tribes for their problems. This isn't new. All that is "new" is the hysterical accusation of other tribes as "racist", stealing the word for the concept 'racism' for the same old unacknowledged racism. The left since at least the 1960s 'New Left' has always called its enemies 'racist' for opposing socialism.

Zimmerman never testified. His statements were introduced by the prosecution. Another bonehead mistake.
