Liberal hypocrisy: George Zimmerman vs Roderick Scott

Trayvon Martin broke Geroge Zimmerman’s nose, gave him two black eyes, and repeatedly smashed his head against the concrete. Zimmerman then shot and killed Martin. Zimmerman was put on trial for murder. During the trial, the medical evidence and witnesses called by the prosecution showed that Martin had violently assaulted Zimmerman, and that Zimmerman had killed Martin in self defense. The jury found Zimmerman not guilty. Liberals across the country responded with huge amounts of criticism and protest. Martin was black, and Zimmerman is a “white hispanic,” and to the Zimmerman haters, the killing and verdict must have been racist.

Roderick Scott is a black man in New York who, in 2009, shot and killed an unarmed white teenager. A jury found Scott to be not guilty of murder because Scott had killed the teen in self defense. Liberals have been silent on this.

Both killers were found not guilty by a jury because the killing was done in self defense. Yet liberals have gotten hugely emotional and hysterical over one killing, while having zero reaction to the other. Why is that?

Here’s my take on this. In order to be objective regarding the issues of race and crime, you have to ask yourself this: if the races of the killer and killee had been reversed, would your opinion of the verdict still be the same? For me, the answer to that question is “yes.” As a strong advocate of self defense, I agree with both verdicts. But for the Zimmerman haters, the answer to that question is clearly “no.” Their hatred of Zimmerman has everything to do with the races of the people involved, which is why they have been silent regarding the Scott verdict.

Dr. Imani Perry, Princeton professor, it’s YOUR fault that your sons cried at the George Zimmerman verdict

Update: I sent an email to Dr. Perry with the link to this blog entry, and I told her, “I welcome you to show this to your students and anyone else whom you think might like to read it and comment on it.”

Dr. Perry wrote back to me and said, “I will be reporting you to the police for harassment.”

Princeton professor Dr. Imani Perry recently wrote:

“My two sons, bright, creative and kind African American boys, aged 7 and 9, both wept when they heard that George Zimmerman had been acquitted. They were afraid he, or others like him, might come for them next.”

“I did not anticipate that their young lives would be as much defined by the tragedies of the murder and execution of Trayvon Martin and Troy Davis, as by the historic era of the first African American president. They already know the brutal truth of racial inequality, and that they are called to wage the battle against it, just as their forefathers and mothers.”

“I believe that if children are guided honestly through the reality of the world in which they live, it will help them build resilience.”

“I am training my sons to develop resilience in the face of the racial injustice.”

Dr. Perry, why would your sons worry that Zimmerman might “come for them next”?

Is it because they are planning to break Zimmerman’s nose, give him two black eyes, and smash his head against the concrete?

Or, is it because you lied to them, and falsely told them that Zimmerman “murdered” and “executed” Trayvon Martin?

If you believe that children should be “guided honestly through the reality of the world,” then why did you teach your own children that Martin was “murdered” and “executed,” when the medical evidence and witnesses called by the prosecution showed that Martin had violently assaulted Zimmerman, and that Zimmerman killed Martin in self defense?

Dr. Perry, did you teach your children about Roderick Scott? Scott is a black man in New York who, in 2009, shot and killed an unarmed white teenager. A jury found Scott to be not guilty of murder because Scott had killed the teen in self defense.

Scott was found not guilty for the same reason that Zimmerman was found not guilty. Both killings were done in self defense. But while you taught your children that the Zimmerman verdict was proof of racism, I very much doubt that you told them anything at all about the Scott verdict.

If you want your sons to have “resilience in the face of the racial injustice,” then why did you scare them by falsely telling them that the Zimmerman verdict was the result of racism, instead of reassuring them by truthfully telling them what pretty much every legal scholar who has closely followed the case has said – that the verdict was the result of the fact that Zimmerman acted in self defense?

Dr. Perry, did you teach your sons that a year before Zimmerman killed Martin, Zimmerman had spoken out against the son of a white police lieutenant who had violently beaten a black homeless man? I’m guessing that you did not tell your sons about this, because it contradicts your bogus claim that Zimmerman is a racist.

Did you teach your sons that before Zimmerman killed Martin, Zimmerman had tutored black children for free? I’m guessing that you did not.

Did you tell your sons that before Martin was killed, a search of his backpack at his school showed it to contain a dozen pieces of women’s jewelry, including silver wedding rings, and earrings with diamonds, as well as a screwdriver, which is often used as a burglary tool? I doubt you told them this, because it gives credibility to Zimmerman’s claim on the 911 call that Martin was acting suspiciously. Martin may have been casing houses when Zimmerman saw him.

Did you tell your sons that Martin’s autopsy showed traces of marijuana in his system? I doubt you told them this, because it verifies Zimmerman’s claim on the 911 call that Martin was acting like he was on drugs.

In the real world, Martin was a burglar, and he used illegal drugs, and it’s quite possible that he was casing houses when Zimmerman observed him.

Dr. Perry, since you want your sons to know “the brutal truth” and to be “guided honestly through the reality of the world,” I was wondering if you have ever told them that 93% of black murder victims are murdered by other blacks?

Dr. Perry, your sons did not cry because of the Zimmerman verdict. Instead, they cried because you taught them to see racism where it does not exist. You taught them to have sympathy for a violent teenage thug who brutally beat a man’s head against the concrete. It’s your fault that your sons cried. It’s not George Zimmerman’s fault. It’s not the jury’s fault. It’s YOUR fault.

Dr. Perry, I hope that for your sons’ own happiness, when they go to college, they get degrees in subjects such as math, engineering, computer programming, physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, medicine, music, art, and literature, and avoid at all costs anything to do with “African American studies,” a subject which seems intent on making people feel like helpless victims, instead of empowered, intelligent human beings.

Update: I sent an email to Dr. Perry with the link to this blog entry, and I told her, “I welcome you to show this to your students and anyone else whom you think might like to read it and comment on it.”

Dr. Perry wrote back to me and said, “I will be reporting you to the police for harassment.”

Unions that helped pass Obamacare now say it will “shatter our hard-earned health benefits” and “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week”

Three unions that supported the passage of Obamacare in 2010 (Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE) have just sent a letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which is very heavily critical of Obamacare. Among other things, the letter states:

The ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.

The law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly. The impact is two-fold: fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.

Our health plans have been built over decades by working men and women. Under the ACA as interpreted by the Administration, our employees will treated differently and not be eligible for subsidies afforded other citizens. As such, many employees will be relegated to second-class status and shut out of the help the law offers to for-profit insurance plans.

These restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable.

We can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans.

This is hypocrisy at its worth. All three of these unions supported the passage of Obamacare. All three of these unions supported Obama in both presidential elections. For them to now portray themselves as victims is absurd.

I’m not denying that Obamacare does all the bad things which they say it does. I think their claims about the harm caused by Obamacare are accurate.

What I am denying, however, is that these unions are “victims.” They are not victims. Instead, these unions are experiencing the consequences of their own actions. They chose to support the passage of Obamacare. They chose to help make Obamacare become reality. For them to now complain about its harmful effects is the height of hypocrisy.

Step by step guide on how to avoid getting shot and killed by George Zimmerman

On July 15, 2013, thousands of protestors in Times Square chanted:

“Trayvon did not have to die. We don’t know the reason why.”

To those thousands of protestors, as well as to the millions of other people who share their point of view, I would like to present the following simple, handy dandy, step by step guide on how to avoid getting shot and killed by George Zimmerman. I follow these steps every day, and the results speak for themselves. If you follow these simple and easy steps, then you, too, can avoid getting shot and killed by George Zimmerman.

Step #1: Don’t pin George Zimmerman down on the ground.

Step #2: Don’t break George Zimmerman’s nose.

Step #3: Don’t give George Zimmerman two black eyes.

Step #4: Don’t repeatedly slam George Zimmerman’s head on the pavement.

That’s it. Just four simply, easy steps.

It works for me.

And if you follow these steps, it will work for you too.

Hey Obama – why couldn’t a Republican President delay all of Obamacare for 10,000 years?

As the Obamacare law is written, the employer mandate is to begin in January 2014. This is what the law said when it was passed by the House and Senate, and signed by President Obama in 2010.

However, it has been reported that President Obama has just delayed the employer mandate part of Obamacare until January 2015. Obama did this without approval from Congress.

For Obama to change a law that was passed by Congress, without first getting approval from Congress, is a violation of the Presidential oath that Obama took to uphold and defend the Constitution.

What Obama did here is an action of a dictator, not an action of a President whose power is limited by a written constitution.

If Obama can get away with this, then it sets a horribly dangerous precedent, and means that the President can arbitrarily make any change to any law that has been passed by Congress, without first getting approval from Congress.

That being said, I would like Obama to explain why a Republican President could not delay all of Obamacare for 10,000 years. It was Obama himself who delayed part of Obamacare for one year. If Obama can do this, I would love to hear him explain why a Republican President could not delay all of Obamacare for 10,000 years.

Pittsburgh employers who voted for Obama are now refusing to pay for Obamacare

I’ve lived in Pittsburgh for 42 years. Everywhere I go, I always see a huge number of pro-Obama bumper stickers. The overwhelmingly vast majority of people in this city are Democrats. They love Obama. They adore him. They voted for him in both elections.

Obamacare requires all employers with 50 or more full time employees to purchase health insurance for those employees, or pay a substantial fine. Obamacare defines full time employment as 30 or more hours per week.

Community College of Allegheny County has switched 200 of its adjunct professors and 200 of its other employees from full time to part time in order to avoid paying for health insurance for those 400 employees.

This decision was made by high level administrators and executives. I’m certain that the vast majority of these higher ups voted for Obama in both elections.

These high level employees have chosen to use a loophole to avoid paying for the very same insurance that they expect other employers to pay for. They voted for Obama. They supported Obamacare. But now they are exempting their own organization from paying for it. The stench of hypocrisy fills the air.

The Carnegie Museum has done the same thing. I’m certain that most of its higher ups voted for Obama. But now these very same higher ups have reduced the hours of 48 of their own employees in order to avoid paying for Obamacare. Again, this shows a tremendous amount of hypocrisy.

Since these two employers are unwilling to pay for insurance for their own employees, how can they support a law that forces other employers to pay for it?

You know a law is bad, when the very people who support the law exempt themselves from it.

Obstetrician/gynecologist with more than 5,000 patients shuts down his practice because he doesn’t want it controlled by Obamacare bureaucrats

The Houston affilifate of ABC News reported that some doctors were shutting down their practices in response to Obamacare.

Dr. Robert WcWilliams, an obstetrician/gynecologist with more than 5,000 patients, said:

“It’s going to be run by bureaucrats – and it’s going to be run by politicians – who have no idea what is in your best interests, then I’m getting out.”

This is great. I’m glad he’s doing this. There’s no better way to protest against Obamacare than for doctors to shut down their practices.

Here’s the video of the news report:

Obama has illegally bypassed Congress to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate

Obama tells Africans that contaminated water is a smaller problem than global warming

While speaking in Johannesburg, South Africa, President Obama said that global warming was “the biggest challenge we have environmentally” and that it was worse than “dirty water, dirty air.”

However, according to the World Health Organization, while global warming kills 140,000 people each year, air pollution kills 3 million people per year.

According to UNESCO, each year, contaminated water causes 4 billion cases of diarrhea, 120,000 cases of cholera, 300 million cases of malaria, 12 million cases of typhoid, 6 million cases of trachoma, 200 million cases of schistosomiesis, and more than 1 billion incidents of intestinal parasites.

You know what’s worse than global warming? How about living your entire life without ever having access to a toilet?

The World Health Organization says that dirty water is “the leading cause of disease and death around the world.”

That Obama would downplay these problems shows how scientifically illiterate he is.

That he would do so while giving a speech in Africa, which has the highest rate of water borne illness of any continent, shows how thoughtless and insensitive he is.

Mainstream media refuses to report on prosecutor’s witness who said Trayvon Martin was “grounding and pounding” George Zimmerman

This is from four days ago, but it’s the first that I’ve heard of it.

As far as I can tell, the mainstream media has chosen to avoid reporting this.

On June 28, 2013, Breitbart reported:

On Friday, in testimony devastating to the prosecution’s case against George Zimmerman in his murder trial for the killing of Trayvon Martin, prosecution witness John Good stated that Martin was on top of Zimmerman, beating him mixed martial arts style – Good used the term “ground and pound” — before Zimmerman shot him. According to Good, he thought Zimmerman was shouting help as Martin beat him. “That’s what it looked like,” he stated. “It looked like there were strikes being thrown, punches being thrown.”

The prosecution struggled to downplay the testimony of its own witness, at one point objecting to a written record from Good being admitted into evidence. The prosecution’s case seems to be that Zimmerman stalked Martin for racial reasons, “evincing a depraved mind regardless of human life, although without any premeditated design to effect the death of any particular individual,” initiated a confrontation to that end, but somehow allowed Martin to gain the upper position in a physical fight and shouted “help!” repeatedly before shooting him.

I know that liberals hate Brietbart and will say that it’s lying, so here is a video of the testimony:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bveeV3_koTM

That witness was called by the prosecution, not by the defense. I’m no legal expert, but that seems like a really odd thing for a prosecutor to do.

Today is July 2, 2013, and even though that testimony occurred four days ago, I have been unable to find any references to it in any mainstream news sources.

Of course this is the same mainstream media which keeps publishing pictures of Martin from when he was 12 instead of from when he was 17, and the same mainstream media which edited the 911 recording to falsely make it look like Zimmerman was a racist.

After a school security camera showed Martin acting suspiciously, a search of his backpack showed that it contained 12 pieces of jewelry, including silver wedding rings, and earrings with diamonds. The backpack also had a screwdriver, which is often used as a tool by burglars. Martin said that the jewelry belonged to a friend, but refused to say who that friend was.

Why would a teenage boy bring a backpack full of silver wedding rings and diamond earrings to school? Do Martin’s millions of defenders really think that he was not a burglar?

The fact that Martin was in possession of stolen jewelry at school is perfectly in line with Zimmerman’s claim on the 911 call that Martin was acting suspiciously. And there had been quite a few burglaries in the area recently.

Also on the 911 call, Zimmerman had said that Martin was acting as if he was on drugs. Martin’s autopsy showed that there was THC in his system. And while other parts of marijuana can stay in the system for weeks after it’s smoked, the THC only stays in the person’s system for a few hours. Therefore, Martin was indeed high when Zimmerman saw him.

So Trayvon Martin was a burglar, used illegal drugs, broke Zimmerman’s nose, gave Zimmerman two black eyes, and smashed Zimmerman’s head against the concrete.

And how does President Obama respond to all of this?

Obama said:

“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
