Al Sharpton and the Lynching of George Zimmerman

June 21, 2013 7:02 am 16 comments

George Zimmerman, accused of 2nd-degree murder. I wonder why we never saw pictures like this in the media?

As jury selection continues in the trial of George Zimmerman for what are obviously trumped up charges of second degree murder, let us focus on the malevolent undercurrents that are animating this drama. One might be tempted to call the entire affair a miscarriage of justice but in using that metaphor we would be guilty of understatement. More appropriate: A Kermit Gosnell style late-term murder/abortion of justice.

After the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman was released by the Sanford Police. Why? For the obvious reason that his claim of self-defense was perfectly reasonable and there was no probable cause to charge him with anything at all. There was an eye-witness to the altercation between Martin and Zimmerman which clearly supported Zimmerman’s story. Although you will never hear this mentioned on MSNBC nor see it in CNN’s recent “Trayvon Martin Shooting Fast Facts” here is a verbatim transcript of this eye-witness’ testimony taken by police on Feb. 26, 2012, within hours of the incident while the details were still fresh in his mind:

“ So I opened my door, there was a black man with a black hoodie on top of either a white guy or now that I found out, I think he was an Hispanic guy with a red sweatshirt on, on the ground yelling out help, umm, and then you know I tried to tell him you know, get out of here you know, stop or whatever, and then the one guy on top in the black hoodie was pretty much just throwing down blows on the guy kinda MMA [Mixed Martial Arts] style.. [short unintelligible question by interviewer and unintelligible  response] on the concrete at this point. So at this point I told’em I was calling 911, I locked my door, went inside, heard a pop, never heard a gunshot before so I didn’t know if it was a rock or something like that, we ran upstairs. Soon as I got upstairs I looked down below and I then saw the guy in the hoodie pretty much just laid out on the ground with the guy in the red shirt just standing up cause there was two people with flashlights and he was pretty much just you know saying,  hey I put the gun down I’m guessing, you know here, I’m here, and that’s when the lady on the phone with 911 pretty much said there was four more calls coming in.

Trayvon Martin - We saw plenty of pictures like this.....

Interviewer: The person calling for help, would that have been the person underneath?

Answer: “Yes, that was the one getting beat up and he was the one with the red sweater on”

Interviewer: Ok, and the one that was shot was the one that was on top of the person getting beat up?

Answer: “Correct, Correct, so I’m guessing you know maybe he was yelling out help because he didn’t want it to come to that point and then it came to that point where he was on the concrete and if you ever got hit on the concrete it hurts”

Interviewer: Did you recognize either one of these individuals?

Answer: No, that’s the bad thing, I just saw the color of the outfits

Trayvon Martin - ....but not like this!

The pictures of George Zimmerman taken by the police that night confirm he was wearing a red jacket and Trayvon Martin was wearing a black hoodie. Zimmerman had a bloody, broken nose – from the picture it is obvious that he took a pounding from someone – and bloody lacerations on the back of his head, consistent with having his head slammed on the concrete. Although most published pictures of Trayvon Martin show a cute little boy, in fact he was a muscular 17 year-old, standing over 6 feet tall, weighing around 160 pounds and perfectly capable of administering a beating to Zimmerman if he chose to. There is zero evidence that Zimmerman had ever exhibited racist attitudes in the past and there is nothing to indicate racially motivated behavior on the night in question. On the contrary, black neighbors sang his praises. In short, there is no reason at all to suspect racism on the part of George Zimmerman while the facts on the ground corroborate the testimony of both Zimmerman and the only eye-witness.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz  (who identifies as a liberal), has expressed understandable outrage at the seriousness of the charge based on such flimsy – and perhaps non-existent – evidence. Why then is George Zimmerman being charged with 2nd degree murder? The lesson to be learned from Jim Crow and racial oppression is that justice is justice and truth is truth no matter what color the alleged victim or perpetrator. Many blacks and liberal whites who bend over backwards to show how “black” they are, seem to feel that the lesson learned is: It’s fine to lynch, as long as it’s a white man accused of shooting a black man.

George Zimmerman, the night of the shooting. Note the red jacket as described by the eye-witness. He clearly took a beating from someone.

George Zimmerman is being sacrificed on the altar of the liberal/progressive gospel. That gospel states that white racism is among the most powerful forces driving events in the United States of America. If there is excessive unemployment in the black community, the cause is always white racism. If black students are failing in school, the cause is always white racism. If a black man is killed by a white man or policeman, the cause is always white racism. If the black community is rife with drugs, prostitution, street gangs, out of wedlock children, and men who refuse to take responsibility for the women they impregnate and the children they sire, the cause is always white racism. Facts – for example: the one thing a young black man must actually fear more than anything else in this country is being murdered by another young black man – are irrelevant, as are reason and logic. The inherent irrationality within this gospel is evidenced by the accusation, that demanding proof of identity before voting is also motivated by white racism (is it racist to require an ID before boarding an airplane?).

Lacerations on the back of George Zimmmerman's head the night of the shooting. Fully consistent with the eye-witness testimony that his head was slammed into the concrete by his attacker.

President Barack Obama even felt comfortable throwing some gasoline on the “cross-burning” with his comment: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” The bittersweet irony is, of course, that this is not really true. If the Obama’s had a son and the skin pigmentation genes had been inherited from President Obama’s mother, he would resemble George Zimmerman (or me for that matter), much more than Trayvon Martin. What if the Obama’s actually did have a white son? Would the President have said: “Well, my son could have looked like Trayvon?”

My purpose here is not to discuss why this “big lie” is being propagated – for those interested, see Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory’s refreshingly coherent exposition on that subject – my purpose is to point out the injustice that is being perpetrated in its name.

The individual who stands out head and shoulders in the promotion of this corrupt agenda is a vulgar excuse for a human being called Al Sharpton. This man is a parasite who engorges and enriches himself on the fears, prejudices, and rage of others. When the prejudices and rage are not bubbling on the surface, Sharpton will use any opportunity to whip it into a boiling frenzy. His track record speaks for itself. He has encouraged black lynch mobs in the Tawana Brawley affair, the Crown Heights riots in 1991, and was responsible for inciting arson and the ensuing murders of seven employees – among them a black security guard named Kareem Brunner – of a store called “The Record Shack” in Harlem in 1995.

A young Jewish boy and his father after being beaten by a black mob in the 1991 Crown Heights riots.

Authorities are justifiably terrified that Sharpton’s incitement will precipitate riots if George Zimmerman is released or found not guilty. After a traffic accident in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn (8/19/91) tragically took the life of seven year old Gavin Cato, segments of the black community – urged on by Sharpton and others – rioted like packs of wild animals terrorizing the Hassidic Jewish community. Actually, I apologize for the comparison to wild animals. That would be an insult to the wild animals. Animals act exactly according to the instincts with which God has endowed them and they are blameless. Those who joined the mob were lower than animals. The 1991 riots in Los Angeles after the acquittal of policemen in the Rodney King case were so deadly and vicious that one black woman remarked, “I’m ashamed of my people.”

Fear, rage, violence, and demagoguery are staples of Sharpton’s diet. If Zimmerman is acquitted Sharpton will again have the opportunity to call endless press conferences and lead the incendiary chanting of “No Justice, No Peace.” Let us pray for true justice. Justice for George Zimmerman without fear of black/white-liberal lynch mobs and that justice be meted out to corrupt charlatans like Al Sharpton.

  • How will anyone ever know if this was a fair trial if Zimmerman is convicted. The DOJ was already here trying to incite riots now. How do you know that Holder is not threatening the jury. How stupid is it to think that white people are afraid of the Black Panthers in Florida. The liberal people in the giant ant hill of New York City are because they have been conditioned to be sheeple, but we are not here. Bring it Al, we have something for you and your ilk.

  • Where’s all the outrage for the THOUSANDS of blacks killed by OTHER BLACKS, each and every year?? I guess they get a pass. I have had many black friends over the years who are educated and made their own way in life – never blamed anyone for anything. But a large segment of the ignorant black population who live off welfare, have kids out of wedlock and just grow up hard and without hope, feel they must blame the white majority for all their misfortunes in life, which are usually self-imposed.

    If it were whites ‘keeping them down’ and conspiring to destroy them, then how do you explain dozens of countries in Africa, still with rampant AIDS, poverty and violence against their own civilians (WITH NOT A WHITE MAN IN SIGHT)???

  • I have been saying this for a while; If you want to see real racism, look at what the Jewish people have been through. They have suffered this injustice a lot longer than black folk and you don’t see them crying, causing trouble, and throwing the race card around like black folk do. They just humble themselves and get better.
    It has obviously come full circle concerning racism that happened to black folk and we are paying the price. But two wrongs don’t make a right. It will come full circle on them one day as well. I for one am fed up with their behavior.

    G-D bless you Moshe Averick, for coherently speaking the truth without fear of condemnation from the liberals. I am so sick of all the “racist” rhetoric claimed by those who are not Caucasian. In fact, it was I who experienced racist attitudes and comments my very first time by blacks in ’97, while visiting Atlanta. Me, of all people, a white woman born in Santa Monica, California, and raised in Southern California, whose family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and classmates consist of all races, colors, creeds, nationalities, and sexual orientations. Apparently, if you are white in Atlanta, and without saying a word, you happen to walk by blacks, you are a racist. They also commented that I probably never even saw, “black folk befo”. My ancestors, who helped establish this country and fought in the Revolutionary War, would ask, why is it that a black man who deems himself a REV., has any credibility when he urges false charges to be brought up against whites in order to bring publicity to himself? Let’s call a spade a spade, Mr. Sharpton, you and your minions are indeed the racists.

  • 1958, by Vladimir Ufland (translated from Russian)

    America is changing rapidly.
    The Negroes are gaining power
    And soon the famous Lady Liberty
    Will be repainted in black powder.

    Then “disadvantaged” and the poor ones
    Will mock the millionaires blatantly
    While Anglo-Saxon-Whity Puritans
    Will rush to mimic Negroes ardently.

    They will respect the Negroes hugely
    And glorify the blackest fellow
    And Whiteys walking with humility
    Will bow first to every Negro.

  • why the hell can’t america see sharpton for what he is?
    a slimeball racist antisemtiic demagogue who loves to incite violence. he is a stain on humanity.

    • Why don’t they do something about all the murders in the ghetto-juust because an apparent white guy shot a black guy-that’s cause to riot if he is aquitted!? He shouldn’t even have to be tried for self defense-yes it’s terrible-all death is-Not to long ago in this area a black man shot and killed a white man just because he was defending his son to play basketball. He was not charged and brought to court. This country is going down and freedon and I will quote a utube video I just saw-common sense is going out the door!!!

  • while it is true that zimmerman acted in self defense and it is true that sharpton is the slime of slime, the author makes some mistakes that need correcting. there is plenty of evidence that drugs have been funneled into the black communities. this has gone on in waves over the years.
    obama’s 2 daughters look more black than not, so if he had a son, that son would probably also look black. lastly, the “wild animals” analogy doesn’t help anything. it actually inflames and reduces the authors credibility.

    as well, the boyish picture of zimmerman is not cogent to the situation.

    the actual physical description of martin, is in face quite cogent.

    zimmerman was attacked, beaten and defended himself. the trial is a sham and should be exposed as such.
    for the author to make his point stronly, he should re-do this piece and remove the inflammatory and inaccurate statements that neither serve truth or his cause.

    • Moshe Averick

      Real,

      Your points about my “inflammatory” rhetoric and the boyish picture of George Zimmerman are well taken. In the best of all worlds an article such as mine would not even need to be written. The problem is that the media coverage has been so slanted that I felt it was necessary to engage in a little bit of satire (the boyish picture) and some heated rhetoric to restore some balance to the picture. Thank you for your insightful comments

    Where I come from, there is proverb stating that if there were no pimps, there were no prostitutes…
    I was one of those who sent money to the N.York police
    officer who was falsely accused of arresting and keeping
    that black girl Bawana on which that rabble rouser “Rev”
    Al Sharpton almost made a repetition of the LA riots, for said officer’s fund to fight Sharpton in court and
    have the book thrown at him….
    We all know he got off with less than a slap on his wrist
    and to this day hasn’t paid the fine he was sentenced to
    And matters are getting worse, as the lowest strata is led to believe that since the President is black, they can get away with murder, which he has proven already ad nauseam with his reactions to incidents such as that of
    Cambridge, Massachussets in which he presupposed malfaisance from the police…..

    I live in Tennessee in a very mixed suburban neighborhood. Racial issues are generally non-existent until someone from African descent experiences offense and decides to make it so. Then we’re all racists because we want someone to take care of their property (like we would know what race the irresponsible person is) or whatever.
    Liberals generally fuel the perception that if you are white and southern, then you must be a racist! 2+2=5!
    I think it makes them feel superior to us as they win elections and consolidate power (and money) for themselves. We really should elect people better at math.
    Racial accusations ruin people’s lives, and the media must do a much better job of accurately reporting the facts to achieve true racial harmony. Of course, that’s not their goal, and we have to live in the wake of real or perceived injustice and a breakdown of trust between people.

  • Justice for George Zimmerman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Please show Taravon at the age when he died not a 12 year old in a hoodie…..If he would not have been kicked out out of school for drugs, robery tools, etc
    we may not be in this situation. Maybe one of his gold toof homies in Miami woulda takin care of thangs.ja no
    Bring in rev.Al&Jesse…….

  • Black Racism

    Black Racism is the good kind of hate (according to academics, journalists, etc)!
    .
    Duke Lacrosse and Twanna Brawley were useful race hoaxes that allowded the haters to produce more animosity for whites and males
