Barack, Trayvon & Islam

Posted: July 6, 2013 at 2:00 pm   /   by

Some people insist that racism no longer exists in America.  Clearly, that isn’t true.  After all, Barack Obama once said that Trayvon Martin looked like the son he might have had.  Inasmuch as Obama is half-white, can any of us imagine his making that statement if the 17-year-old who was known to be a dope-dealing thug had been a Caucasian?   On the other hand, I suspect that when he gazes fondly at Eric Holder, the Attorney General who refuses to indict blacks for intimidating white voters, he sees himself with a little mustache.

This is the same Obama who, in spite of being ignorant of the facts, accused the Cambridge, MA, Police Department of “acting stupidly” for arresting Professor Henry Gates for disorderly conduct for no other reason than that Prof. Gates was black.  As he said at the time: “There’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.  That’s just a fact.”

No mention of the fact, no matter how inconvenient it might be, that African-Americans and Latinos commit a disproportionate number of crimes, particularly those of a violent nature.

That’s not to say Obama never singles out a white criminal.  Just recently, he was dismissive of the traitorous Edward Snowden, who had done everything in his power to weaken America’s defenses and put a wedge between us and our allies, dismissing him as “a 29-year-old hacker.”

When asked if he had made any attempt to have him extradited from China or Russia, Obama petulantly replied, “I haven’t called President Xi.  I haven’t called President Putin.  I shouldn’t have to.”

So even though he thought a disturbing-the-peace complaint against Gates was so important that he hosted a beer summit at the White House, he doesn’t think dealing with a traitor guilty of espionage is worthy of his time.  If a person weren’t frightened of being called a racist, one could make the case that defending America and its national interests just doesn’t rate very high on this jackass’s list of priorities.

After all, nothing as trivial as our national security must interfere with his golf, his fund-raisers and his photo ops in Africa.  One of which took place at an embarkation site for the slave boats, but naturally there was no mention of the all-important role played by the Arabs and Muslims in that vile world-wide activity.

Those pinheads such as John McCain who insist we get involved in the Syrian Civil War, which pits one group of blood-thirsty Islamics against another, insist they have the ability to distinguish the good guys from the bad guys in spite of the fact that during his surprise visit to Syria, a goofily-grinning McCain posed with three known jihadists.  I keep wondering if the folks who’d handle the vetting process would be the same brainiacs who granted Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden their security clearance.

Perhaps they’d leave it up to Rep. Jim McDermott (D, WA) who opposed the FBI’s posting photos of Most Wanted Terrorists because, he whined, it involved racial and religious profiling.  On the other hand, this lamebrain who, along with Sen. Patty Murray, makes a laughingstock of  Washington, considered the profiling and targeting of conservatives by the IRS a swell idea.

In England, Clive Hunt, 58, offered to pick up bacon sandwiches for a group of associates holding a business meeting.  The friendly gesture got him canned because one of those at the meeting was Sharika Sacranie, 29, a Muslim.

The reason given by Hunt’s employer was that the offer, no matter how innocently it may have been made, constituted “a racist remark.”

I had two reactions.  The first is that I bet he wouldn’t have lost his job if the non-pork eater had been Jewish.  The second is that this is a very clear snapshot of the new Europe, where seven years ago British Airways fired a clerk named Nadia Eweida because she refused to remove the cross from around her neck.

In the past, Muslims twice attempted to conquer Europe.  The first time, Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi was defeated by Charles Martel at the Battle of Tours in 732.  Eight hundred years later, Suleiman, while attempting to expand the Ottoman Empire, bit the dust at the Siege of Vienna.

But the third time, as is often the case, was the charm.  This time, without swinging a saber or firing a shot, Islam took possession of the continent.  All that was required of the Muslims was to wait for Europeans to defeat themselves through cowardice posturing as tolerance.

Today, Europe; tomorrow, America.

    The prosecution is inexperienced in this sort of case, because rational government attorneys do not typically charge a victim who was almost murdered.
    Putting together the transcript of Zimmerman’s call, the eyewitness account and a map of the area, one can conclude a number of things. Zimmerman lost sight of Martin for a few minutes. Martin’s temporary residence was about 100’ away. If Martin wanted to flee, he could have gone home without further contact. Instead, Martin confronted Zimmerman while Zimmerman was returning to his vehicle. Martin led with a ‘king hit’ to the face, which broke Zimmerman’s nose and knocked him to the ground. Martin then straddled Zimmerman, repeatedly striking him and slamming Zimmerman’s head on the concrete walkway for up to a minute. Zimmerman showed remarkable restraint in waiting that long before drawing his pistol and only firing one shot. A law officer in that position would have used his weapon much sooner and would likely have emptied his magazine into his or her attacker. And it makes no difference that the attacker is ‘unarmed’. Head trauma can kill.
    It seems likely that Zimmerman was so disoriented by the sudden attack that he forgot he was armed. No premeditation, no evil intent – rather it was justifiable self defense.

    1. @sandbear I think we know why they brought the case.

    It’s true that blacks commit a disproportionate number of violent crimes. It’s also true that the heads of the Wall Street banks that caused the 2008 financial collapse were all Jews. Still waiting for your article on the avariciousness of the “chosen people”.

      “Chosen?”  Chosen for what?

  3. sleepergirl says:

    So why didn’t Obozo’s regime prosecute the “Jews” responsible for the Wall Street meltdown?  Could it be those same Jews back BO 100%?   Perhaps you are not up on history because the Community Reinvestment Act started the proverbial housing/mortgage snowball rolling.  It either originated in Carter’s or Clinton’s tenure and continued to its head in the fall of 2006 .  Little Barney Frank said not to worry.  Franklin Raines made off like a bandit.  Scores of Democrats were intimately in the middle of this attack on the middle class and all the subsequent fallout whether they were Jews or not.
