Now That the Girls of Zimmerman are (Almost) Gone
ClashDaily.com ^ | 7/16/13 | Donald Joy

Posted on 07/16/2013 6:48:30 PM PDT by IChing

Whew, that was a close one!

Most people with whom I was in contact leading up to the Zimmerman verdict had been somewhat bitterly hedging their prognostications of his escaping conviction on the murder charge, resignedly saying conviction for the lesser accusation of manslaughter was the most likely outcome, given what we’ve come to expect from mercurial juries in our modern times.

For myself, despite being skeptical along the way and even arguing in the later phase that a hung jury was probable, I wound up firmly predicting total acquittal (as I mainly had in numerous articles on the case over the months) while the final hours of deliberations ticked by.

Still, while I was inwardly overjoyed to watch Zimmerman stand and listen to the “not guilty” pronouncement being read to the court, I was also a bit shocked and incredulous–I was waiting for some qualification, some “but” or clarification regarding his exoneration on the count 2nd degree murder, followed by the dismal horror of a proclamation of guilt on the manslaughter charge.

In Zimmerman’s face, I was sure I could read the same trepidation–an extremely cautious unwillingness to perhaps prematurely conclude that he was really off the hook, lest he suddenly hear in the jury foreperson’s next breath that he was to be sentenced to as much as thirty years in prison for the lesser charge.

Zimmerman’s expression, like my own as I watched the TV screen in utter raptness, was that of waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Nope, nada; no guilt on either charge of 2nd degree murder nor manslaughter.

Praise God and honest women!

Even Judge Debra Nelson’s craggy, previously surly countenance over the preceding weeks was soon visibly brightened, and her voice even seemed surprisingly pleasant, as she gave the final orders for the verdict’s ramifications, and for the resolution of the case. I am sure I detected the faint hints of a smile as she finished the business of her court regarding the matter. I’m not sure what to make of that; it was probably mere relief that the ordeal was ending, given her open hostility toward the defense throughout.

The jury of women did their job. They carefully sifted through the facts and evidence presented, and they properly applied the law.

As the realization of his sudden freedom sunk in, Zimmerman only dared show the faintest, minimal signs of relief and reserved gratitude as his defense team slowly, quietly reached to assure him and support him in the reality of what was happening. It was not, nor will it ever be, apparently, safe for him to fully openly enjoy and celebrate his survival against such an all-out racial and political vendetta. Not unless our society undergoes a radical reformation, that is.

Given the extreme tensions involved in the entire one-and-a-half-year-long odyssey of malice directed toward destroying his life by those who falsely claimed that he’d murdered one of theirs, it was prudent for Zimmerman not to openly celebrate the verdict, or even unintentionally antagonize his persecutors in any way.

Despite the fact that he’d already (by only the skin of his teeth) barely survived attempted murder by Trayvon Martin, and had just barely survived the attempt by the full force of government and media (all the way up to the White House and the major networks’ & newspapers’ titanic campaigns of deceptive mass-propaganda) to railroad him into decades of imprisonment, George Zimmerman has by now learned the score: Those who have all along wished him to be tortured and buried into oblivion know no reason, nor mercy, nor acquiescence, and he’d be naive to operate from this point on as if he could safely dance or even timidly tiptoe his way to a life of rights in such a vast minefield of danger and hate.

Zimmerman’s own government, that entity whose only legitimate, primary Constitutional role is supposed to be that of serving to help protect a citizen’s fundamental Divine rights here on Earth, has instead mostly sided with those who would lynch him, doing nothing to stop identified individuals and groups who actually took to live national television to announce a bounty on his head.

State’s Attorney Angela Corey gave a disgustingly dishonest statement to the press immediately following the verdict, characteristic of her criminal, fraudulent political prosecution of Zimmerman from the outset.

One juror has given an extremely compelling interview with Anderson Cooper, her identity shrouded in darkness as she meticulously explained the perfectly understandable clarity with which her impaneled sisters of the jury eventually reached a unanimous conclusion about the misplaced charges.

Rachel Jeantel is basking in her sordid 45 minutes of fame, parlaying gutter ghetto-pop fabulous-ness into a townhall-style appearance on Piers Morgan, ebonically holding forth as if she is the font of all modern wisdom to the applause and adoring fascination of Oprah-Obama acolytes throughout the land.

Barf.

Now that the girls of Zimmerman are just about gone, have things gone quiet, as in the Don Henley song from which I rip my quip? Hardly.

“Polar bear hunting” in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict has taken on a new, even more horrific dimension. Whites are being savagely beaten and even murdered in the streets, as promised, by the throngs of Trayvon-emulators, and the major media is looking the other way. Property is being destroyed and municipalities across the land are under various forms of siege and threat by rabid, racist mobs protesting the outcome of the misconceived, political show trial.

All considered, however, the mayhem and rioting may be less now than it might have been if Zimmerman’s rights hadn’t been violated by charging him without any evidence or probable cause in the first place.

CNN and MSNBC are continuing host hour after hour after hour after hour of propaganda programming, pretending that the whole ugly saga is somehow the fault of a majority-white society failing to fully embrace the depraved ghetto/gangsta-rap criminal subculture (around 50% of all violent crime and murder in the U.S. is done by roughly 3% of our population, young black males), as if it’s just a misunderstood form of innocence; that stereotyping and profiling based on actual probability is irrational, rather than merely sensible survival strategy.

How much you wanna bet that highly-paid TV Trayvon supporters Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell, if not carrying-concealed themselves, call armed men for help when encountering dubious young black males after dark?

God bless and keep George Zimmerman. We must protect him, and exhort people like him to not be discouraged in working to make our communities safer.

And we must thank God that women like the most important ones involved in the Zimmerman case, the honest and rational ladies of his jury, are not completely gone from our culture’s midst.

Upset? I'm not upset.

Just wondering why the only thing he can find to post is his own stuff.

Looks like self-promotion to me, and using Free Republic as an advertising tool for his "writing".

Do you think that's cool.. some dude using Free Republic's traffic to promote himself?

I was expecting pictures of the attractive women on the Zimmerman defense team.

I’m disappointed since some of them were very easy on the eyes. The young black intern was kinda hot.

She was interviewed on CNN or somewhere and the host tried to get her to express shame at being an Aunt Thomasina or whatever, but she was extremely capable of shutting that b.s. down in a very professional way.

Maybe if his writing were promoted by someone besides him or his mom I'd view it differently.

As is, I see it as the utilization of Free Republic as a stolen advertising venue.

George Zimmerman was offered up as a sacrifice by cowardly politicians afraid to face down a mob. It was a shameful day in American history. I won’t be forgetting or forgiving any of them.

If one doesn’t believe in ones self why should anyone else believe in them? Besides, what exactly do you have against conservatives promoting their viewpoints and working to have those who may be interested in the conservative viewpoint reading that conservatives writings? The Alinsky tactics you employ to attempt to intimidate conservatives working to promote their sites would make like minded liberals proud I’m sure.

I had little faith in the jury...And rightfully so, I guess...Turns out half the jury was ready to vote guilty...Fortunately the other half forced those three to get a grip on what the law actually says...

So if he’d pay me to promote it, it would be okay? I’d do it for the money. I wouldn’t like it but I’d do it. I might look back on it and say “Man, you really sold out didn’t you?” but then again I might not. As always I look to you for how I should approach things or as I always say “What would humblegunner do in this situation”. Thank you for your leadership role in this area.

Good article, thanks for sharing!

I'd point out, tho, that Rachel Jeantel is actually turning out to be something of a font of wisdom. Particularly how she revealed that Martin was the one committing a federal hate crime by profiling and beating Zimmerman because he thought Zimmerman was a gay rapist.

Sorry, chum. Homeboy is just trying to use FR to promote himself.

And I don't see him on the rolls of supporters.

That makes him a freeloading self-promoting wanker until proven otherwise.

Thanks for posting this. I don’t mind that you share your full articles you write here. It’s great.

It is sometimes annoying that some people only post a little tiny bit, and want us to visit their sites to read the rest, but you do not do that, and that’s great.

Sometimes I worry posts are designed to steal Freeper’s IP addresses and browsing “footprints” — in essence a form of Phishing.

I am not that annoyed when people only post a little but actually write the articles they post THEMSELVES, make it clea it is theirs, and they are worth reading and not just copy-paste plagiarism.

The really bad ones steal someone else’s stuff and might cite it a little on their web site, but post here as though they have written just a breakthough article themselves. Often those are relative “meatless” too.

I think that kind of thing has gotten people here sensitive to so called “blog pimps”, but your meaty apparently original post here seems OK to me.

(I still did not click through, though — hee hee !)

Yes, it is a good article.

I don’t see the reasoning for the complaints, but it is a fact that some people just don’t like blogs, and seeing something posted from one makes them see red.

First, IIRC, the blog hating Freeper Beaters complained because articles were excerpted forcing anyone who wanted to read the complete text to click on the link.

Then when (as in this thread) complete text is posted, the complaints still rolled in.

Then it was complaining that posters that posted from blogs (even if it wasn’t their blog, they were accused of “owning” the blog contrary to the facts.)

Then (valid IMO) complaining that many only posted treads from blogs, with nary a comment anywhere.

This thread and others posted by this poster have many comments on them, thereby seemingly placating those that complain.

Even when a blog poster follows the rules of FR and takes the advise of those opposed to blogs, some still complain.

I would deem that a bit irrational.

Well, you can count me in as one of those people if the post is an excerpt. But I have a special respect for bloggers who post their entire column here. Never had a problem with those bloggers.

I consider myself a part-time blogger, and FR is my blog. I occasionally write a full column, sometimes complete with images, links, etc., and post it here. You can (or at least you used to be able to) check the number of "views" any particular thread attracted, and I remember being amazed a few years back that a column I had written and posted here had received literally tens of thousands of "views". I knew right then that going off to start my own personal blog - - not that it was ever seriously considered - - would be ludicrous.

So late to this thread, but have no ox at hand ready for goring... alas, he escaped!

But, need an explanation as to why I shouldn’t get get into high “late-night” gear, get the “granny load” on, and send out a zot-kitty contract on “humble gunner”.

He has added nothing to the conservative discussion, and needs a good dose of ghetto”whoop-asshhh”, in this old freeper’s opinion.

His (and your) milage, of course, might vary from mine. But, I have been driving a whole lot longer...

So, my opinion may not be reflective of the management, and is only that of a disheartened long term Freeper, now worrying about what has happened to the website I once trusted and loved.

“humblegunner”... how I wish we had a “down thumb” for you, or at least an “ignore” button.

I am ashamed of you, won’t refer people to FR because of you, and pray you will re-think your unfortunate postings. Perhaps you would be happier over at DU, or KOS?

Quit picking on me and mine, unless you can come up with some observations requiring critical thinking. Your juvenile, irritating ad-hominem attacks on fellow conservatives don’t pass muster with most of us seniors.

We hope to encourage the next generation to think clearly, and write honest conservative opinions on the internet, no matter where they are lucky enough to find a venue.

So, “humblegunner”, as your punishment, you are now sentenced to listening to 6 hours a day of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity for the next twelve weeks.

If you fail to meet your sentence, 18 weeks of “InfoWars” will be your penance, followed by a HSA official escorting you to Minneapolis, with intrusive full body cavity searches, so you can cut my elderly toenails, which I can no longer reach or see.

Give it up, humblegunner, before you make a total fool of yourself!
