Skip to comments.Did Trayvon Martin Suffer From Gay Panic?
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.
this just shows that the longer you think about it the better your story gets
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.
i would love to post the clip from step brothers “i am so not a raper”
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.
Just another excuse...
Longer and better. (warning for language)
Acute case of uneducated, over-peered, black bravado that mistakenly assumes their victims aren’t armed. A fatal mistake.
So Zimmerman was racially profiling while Trayvon was queer profiling? Hmmmmm ...
What, little Trayvon sashayed really, really fast but couldn’t lose the big bad Hispanic cracker, so he assaulted him with a brick-filled purse, lol?
Thank you so much. I needed that chuckle.
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.
So in other words, Trayvon was shot while committing a hate crime against what he (Trayvon) perceived a gay rapist creepy-ass cracka? So where is the Gay community on this?
Damn no limit ni..... the liberals have a problem. Who to love the most....an anti home black....or a gay white Hispanic.
It’s actually an astute read on why he may have attacked Zimmerman.
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.
We all need a chuckle nowadays.
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 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.
“So where is the Gay community on this?”
Getting tested for STDs.
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.
Wouldn't that make Martin the bad guy? I mean gay is now good and honorable, right?
this girl is one dopey fool, she really can’t help herself to say she wrong things and now she gets a paid college
Could we get the NSA to play that back for us?
Racial Dee Dee has given us the nomenclature, we should use it... if somebody follow you but you not that way, you can whoo paaaaz an blood them.
she’ll be teaching school somewhere in 5 years, if she’s not a panel member on the view
How about that! Rush just stated the same thing... I am glad that I could help el Rushbo out.
So where is the Gay community on this?
They’re supporting a federal charges, they want justice for Trayvon. Imagine my surprise to find out Trayvon was a homosexual.
So... Trayvon profiled Zimmerman.
That makes his attack murder. Well, attempted murder.
All the blacks told me that profiling was equal to murder.
Geesh... what the hell is “gay panic”??
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.
TM, a homophobe? ROTFLMAO!
If anyone was committing a hate crime it was Trayvon Martin.
That'll last about as long as it takes her to find out she's expected to show up for classes and put in some work.
“Defend yourself from being followed”? Huh? Why didnt martin call the police if he was scared? The only one that called police was zimmerman. That tells the story right there.
I’m sorry but how is it homophobic to assume someone is a sexual predator? The two have NOTHING to do with each other. More idiocy from the loony left.
Dam so now its all the groups
We have an Hispanic man shot a black man because the black man was beating him because he thought he was a gay man and then women judge and all women jury let him off....but as always ..its white straight man’s fault....
Oh! An because of his name many think Zimmerman must be Jewish! !!..
Like is said..everybody’s in the pool!!!
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.
Listening to this feral fool is like listening to the sweepings in the bag of my vacuum. Don’t worry, though. Someday after she gets her “college degree”, nobama will make her a czar of something (maybe cursive writing).
There were those kind of attacks recently in San Fran after one of their pride parades.
We need to start circulating a petition around the LGBT community to have Eric Holder file post-mortem civil rights charges against Trayvon Martin!
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.
