You Knew This Was Coming....

I don't have much to say on the Trayvon Martin shooting at the moment.  I'm sure I will at some point, once the facts come out.  Right now I'm chosing to look at things factually and objectively instead of doing what most folks seem to be, that is throwing out cries of "racism" going apeshit, and generally engaging in crazy ass assumptions without bothering with facts.  It would seem that you bring guns, race, emotion, and a black victim together and all rational thought goes out the window.

I will however, leave you with this simply because of the sheer stupidity.  Then again, it IS from MSNBC, so stupidity is a given.

It would appear the left is blaming Republican Presidential candidates and Rush Limbaugh for Trayvon Martin's death.

Too many people are looking for excuses to be angry and why their lives aren't better. Instead of focusing on the truth about themselves they'll look for racism everywhere and blame other people for their problems. And then there are those that will try to capitalize on that. Did you hear Obama say his son would 'look like Trayvon'?

I agree about letting the facts come out. If Zimmerman was wrong, prosecute him.

And never let a good crisis go to waste.

The countries involved in the arms trade treaty are currently submitting statements as to "areas of improvement" in the treaty. Or rather, areas that are probably worse for citizen gun owners.

When the twitter account for these UN Fascists has a "Free Victims Zone, No Law Abiding Citizens' Arms Allowed" for their handle picture, you know what we are in for.

The fact is that this UN treaty is very active ahead of the July conference, and the FL shooting is just a huge distraction that the political opportunists in this country are using in an election year.

You know Obama and his media bootlickers desperately wanted Zimmerman to be a white guy with a Gadsden flag t-shirt and a "Don't Re-Nig 2012" bumper sticker on his pick-up truck.

But with Zimmerman being Hispanic, how are they going to make this a racist incident?

And isn't it interesting that the media doesn't mention Zimmerman's ethnicity? It's almost as if they're hoping people will naturally assume someone named "George" is a lily-white, racist Republican.

Another reason to hold judgement.

Agreed. The funny thing about facts is, once they are known those who jumped to conclusions rarely offer an apology.. Well, unless they are on the right side of things, then it's demanded... Let me take a guess at how it will play out if it's found to be a righteous case of self defense.

"Well, maybe this was not as we were led to believe but it's because there's SOOOO much racism out there it's pretty much a given that race played a part in this shooting"..... MSNBC.

Not quite an apology but it will be passable by MSM standards.
