Did Trayvon Martin Suffer From Gay Panic?
Friends of Ours ^ | 07/16/13 | Friends of Ours

Posted on 07/16/2013 9:00:34 AM PDT by AtlasStalled

The Florida jury which acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin believed the 17-year-old initiated the violent confrontation against the neighborhood watchman, and perhaps his underlying reason was a homophobic assumption that Zimmerman was a sexual predator.

Last night in an interview on CNN prosecution witness Rachel Jeantel said the following to Piers Morgan:

"People need to understand, he didn't want that creepy ass cracka going to his father or girlfriend's house to go get -- mind you, his little brother is there. Mind you I told you, I told Trayvon, [Zimmerman] might have been a rapist."

Although state prosecutors repeatedly insisted with sinister innuendo in their closing argument that Trayvon Martin had the right to defend himself against being followed by a strange man, surely they did not intend to legally bless a violent assault against Zimmerman simply because the younger man may have thought he was being cruised.

Now, that would be interesting, wouldn't it? Iirc, black-on-homosexual attacks turn up even in the Democrat news occasionally. They have an awful time when one designated victim beats up another!

Sounds like the gays are feeling neglected by all of this news about African Americans and Hispanics. They want to be kept in the headlines as an oppressed group, no doubt.

Ah, they just now go for the ‘gay’ thing?

Well, certainly trying all angles, eh?

How’s about ‘Global Warming’? Alien Invasion? Bigfoot? (GZ might have been Bigfoot). Fluoridation in the water? (It WAS Florida, after all). Ozone? Fumes from Love Canal drifting down the Atlantic Seaboard? Mary Hart’s voice? (Cosmo Kramer).

So, in other words, it was wrong for Zimmerman to be concerned about the way Trayvon was acting, but right for Trayvon to attack Zimmerman for following him.

I guess that makes sense in some kind of liberal parallel universe. Fortunately for Zimmerman, he was judged in this one.

Acute case of uneducated, over-peered, black bravado that mistakenly assumes their victims aren’t armed. A fatal mistake.

“Although state prosecutors repeatedly insisted with sinister innuendo in their closing argument that Trayvon Martin had the right to defend himself against being followed by a strange man...”

Does this mean that it's OK to kick somebody’s butt for following you as long as they are “strange”?

If I punch out some strange guy who's walking behind me, will these guys testify in my defense?

Blacks vote >95% for America’s Homosexual Party.

Draw your own conclusions, but it seems that they are more than willing, as a group, to accept normalizing homosexuality in exchange for EBT cards and the occasional free widescreen TV. Its not a racial thing, there are a lot of white prostitutes too.

I doubt the MSM will let this go very far: the concept that anyone needs to be concerned about homosexual rape is simply not allowed. Apparently Ms. Jeantel couldn’t read the memo when it came out.

Just when you thought it could not get more absurd.

There has got to be a hamster joke coming down the highway so to speak.

He was subject to child abuse at one point so bring on PETA and the circus will be complete. Minus the vertically challenged.

This will ultimately be fodder for standup comedians with a sarcastic sense of humor.

The bottom line: If somebody racial profiles you, you can kick his ass as long as you want, and there is no justification for the guy watching you to defend himself.

The inconvenient truth for these irrational, race baiting punks (yeah, I used that word to describe anybody white, black, green, purple, or pink that promotes violence) is that the "angelic, saintly" Trayvon attacked and committed a felony assault on George before he was killed.

I only want to know one thing. Why did the prosecutors throw the case? They are trained attorneys of the highest caliber. They couldn’t be that incompetent.

So if they are not incompetent, then why did they lose? I submit that the prosecution are the true racists and they threw the case because Zimmerman was white.

If all these supporters of Trayvon are correct and Zimmerman is guilty, there is only one place to place the blame. That is with the prosecution.

We should have that go viral. At the least it would be fun to watch.

So... Trayvon profiled Zimmerman.

That makes his attack murder. Well, attempted murder.

All the blacks told me that profiling was equal to murder.

in most states, if a death occurs while committing a crime, all involved in the crime are guilty. That would make Trayvon guilty of murder... or would that be suicide... ouch... that makes my head hurt.

No, apparently its now reversed. Trayvon was the real villain because he assumed Zimmerman was a homosexual and reacted violently. Perhaps the left wants Trayvon charged with hate crime posthumously. These people are truly moonbats7it.

If Zimmerman was a gay minority cruising for underage boys and using racial terms on the phone (per Nancy Grace) he wouldn’t be a neighborhood watch captain; he’d be a democrat congressman.

“Gay panic” is, I think, the defense used by those two guys who killed Matthew Shepard ... the murder of whom drove implementation of the federal hate crimes laws.

Which is why this woman’s latest statements are so interesting. They provide circumstantial evidence and possible motivation for Martin to have circled around and assaulted Zimmerman because he thought Zimmerman was a gay rapist.

THAT would make Martin the one illegally profiling and engaging in an attack prosecutable under federal hate crimes laws ...

As was suspected during the trial, this woman seems to have ducked out after Trayvon’s death because she provoked Trayvon’s assault on this man.
