I haven't commented on the killing of a Florida teen, Trevon Martin, because there's still a lot that we don't know.
What we do know is that Martin, a black teenager, was killed by George Zimmerman, who is Hispanic. Zimmerman called 911 and reported seeing a suspicious person in his neighborhood, where there had been a lot of burglaries. He'd been told by the police to stop following the person but did not listen to the 911 dispatcher. Another 911 call from another resident has a man crying help and then a gunshot going off.
Was there a struggle between the two? It's not clear at this time.
But the ensuing investigation and uncertainty has not stopped the usual suspects from swooping down and hijacking this tragedy while fanning the flames of racial tension and division.
First, the New Black Panther Party, aka Eric Holder's people, are caught on film circulating a poster saying Zimmerman is "wanted Dead or Alive." (All Voices via Weasel Zippers).
Jesse Jackass is using this tragedy to claim blacks are under attack, especially after Obama's 2008 election. Al Sharpton is fanning flames of division, and that anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan is actually threatening retaliation for Martin's killing.
Meanwhile, MSDNC is wasting no time politicizing this tragedy by allowing a Democrat hack strategist named Karen Finney to blame Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Rush Limbaugh for the murder.
For all the allegations of racism, neither Sharpton, Jackass, or other race baiters will not address crimes like the an attack on a white Kansas City teen by black youths, who doused him with gasoline and set him on fire while saying, "This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy!" Nor will they address allegations of racism against whites in the same Kansas City schools. The lapdog media, of course, ignores these attacks.
Of course, the family and all concerned citizens need to ask questions about how this killing happened. Was it murder or self-defense? What is irresponsible is how, once again, the far-Left and demagogues have hijacked this tragic event to push more division among racial and ideological lines on an already polarized nation.
