Former NAACP leader the Reverend C.L.Bryant has been one of the few voices of reason in the aftermath of the death of Trayvon Martin. He chastised the professional agitators and instigators like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for “exploiting” the case for personal gain. The left has seized upon the shooting in it’s never ending quest to divide the nation. As long as we are at each others throats their coffers keep filling.
In his interview with The Daily Caller; Bryant described them as “race hustlers”. The so-called mainstream media and their leftist lackeys live by the credo: “Never let a tragedy go to waste.” Bryant was correct in describing them “…as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.” Mention cameras and microphones and they are like sharks with blood in the water.
The truth has been hijacked in lieu of unsubstantiated innuendo, showboating, and race baiting. The leftist rhetoric has been flowing hard and heavy under their direction. Jackson has made outlandish statements intended to incite fear and division.:
- “blacks are under attack”
- “…targeting, arresting, convicting blacks, and ultimately killing us is big business.”
- Trayvon was “murdered and martyred” Has he appointed himself judge and jury?
The racist leader of the New Black Panther Party Mikhail Muhhamad is a prime example of this problem. This hate fueled organization has violated the law by offering a bounty on George Zimmerman. Incitements to violence and vigilante justice threats are ignored by the media. A deck loaded with race cards has been played from Hollywood to the White House.
Thanks to dedicated writers from nextooze.com, The Blaze, and other alternative media outlets the truth is slowly reaching the surface:
- George Zimmerman though described as white is in actuality of Hispanic descent. Continuing to perpetuate this lie can only mean an intentional agenda is being played out.
- The Florida neighborhood where the shooting occured was described as being predominately white. In truth it has been shown to be over 49% black/Latino. Jackson and Sharpton’s hype sounds better when the facts are fudged.
- Trayvon was a model student; not quite so.
- Photos and descriptions are being used to cloud the truth and incite a divide.
- 911 witness describes an attack on Zimmerman by Martin.
One of the agendas behind the leftist feeding frenzy on the issue is an assault on the Second Amendment. This is very evident in the rhetoric of Brady Campaign head Dan Gross. He stated; Trayvon’s life has been lost not because of an accident, but because of the easy access to a gun by a violent person permitted by a state with weak gun laws.” Florida’s self defense inspired Stand Your Ground law came under attack even before the blood dried. These ludicrous protests have spread to Georgia and other areas. We can expect Alabama’s much maligned “Castle Doctrine” to be in their cross hairs.
Stand Your Ground simply states; “A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity…has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.” To oppose this sensible law is to encourage harm to the victims of violent crime.
Florida lawmaker Dennis Baxley (R) states; When a law abiding citizen is confronted with attack, he should be able to defend himself, but Zimmerman was told by the police he shouldn’t pursue. Once he did that, he was on thin ice as far as this statute is concerned. This is where the courts and the American judicial system comes in. George Zimmerman hasn’t been convicted of any crime or been proven guilty of anything. Racist groups have threatened him, offered bounties on his head, and incited violence. Celebrities have passed judgement and fueled the flames of hatred and division. Our leaders have turned a blind eye to justice in order to milk the tragedy.
As citizens we have a right to defend ourselves from violent attack. Alabama backed up this right with the passage of it’s Castle Doctrine. If it is proven that George Zimmerman was attacked by Martin then he had the right to exercise use of force under the reasonable and prudent man doctrine. The retreat mindset that the left and liberals want to tie our hands with will result in the loss of innocent blood. The prey of rapist, murderers, and violent felons should be able to protect themselves from the predators in our midst.
Stand your ground puts the burden of proof on the thugs who would do you harm. George Zimmerman if found guilty of a crime should be held accountable. Alabamians should look beyond the hype and rhetoric and place themselves in Zimmerman’s shoes. What would you have done in his situation? We shouldn’t pass judgement on him; leave that to the judge and jury. I urge my fellow Alabamians to Stand your ground on the Second Amendment, common sense, and a united America. Tune out the instigators and agitators who would leave our nation in chaos and anarchy in order to get a little facetime in front of the cameras.
United we stand; divided we fall- take it to heart and live it.
