Across US, People Rally For 'Justice for Trayvon'
AP via Yahoo News ^ | July 20, 2013 | Bill Barrow

One week after a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in the death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, people gathered for nationwide rallies to press for changes to self-defense laws and for federal civil rights charges against the former neighborhood watch leader.

The Florida case has become a flashpoint in separate but converging national debates over self-defense laws, guns, and race relations. Zimmerman, who successfully claimed self-defense, identifies as Hispanic. Martin was black.

'people gathered for nationwide rallies to press for changes to self-defense laws'...

This country is in a lot worse shape than I ever imagined.

The case of George Zimmerman being found not guilty has provided the racial arsonists with the perfect social vehicle of the day, the 'Perfect Storm' of racial divisiveness, gun control in which to fan the flames of hatred, demagoguery.

The only thing "spontaneous" about people gathering for nationwide rallies to press for changes to self defense laws is the spontaneous combustion "community organizers" are stirring up for no other reason than to create the circumstances in which they can to exploit for their own sinister, megalomaniac end.

Without question the number one culprit in the impromptu gatherings, having sparked the 'spontaneity' of "people gathering for nationwide rallies" is the hypocritical Machiavellian demagogue himself, Chief Community Organizer, cynical neologist having spawned the self-mocking, parodying "hope and change' who instead of acting the part of statesman,social mollifier peacemaker, unifier had at the worst possible time, said the worst possible thing.

No doubt Obama is most deserved of the greatest opprobrium, admonishment for having been the incendiary on a seemingly extinguished flame that with deliberate malice, calculated malevolence brought the once seemingly closed episode back to roaring intensity with having said seeing Trayvon in himself.

Finally, this the quintessential illustration of the sort of pig-headed, defectively non-thinking, pavlovian mindset that defines the left-wing, liberal mindset in the way it violates, contradicts the innate, inherently natural approach to the experience we as human beings are endowed with.

The act of self-preservation, to survive at all costs emphatically characterizes the human experience above all else. The act of survival,of self-defense, has helped preserve Mankind through its unimaginably harsh nearly unendurable, unsurvivable existence, history. The act of self-defense is not merely an afterthought as moral imperative of civilization, of social compact, mores of a modern society but fundamentally the very underlying aspect of life, human life itself.

It hardly needs an explanation to understand the very troubling psyche that underlies the left-wing, liberal mindset is that one of the issues regarding the Trayvon rallies is the press for changes in self-defense laws.

In other words, the manner in which people allowed to act, react, in order to survive in the face of mortal danger, the laws that provide a legal basis to protect, save yourself as the cornerstone of any society, is in the rallies that are going on nationwide an aspect that thy want changed, as the legacy of one Trayvon Martin.

I oppose any further charges being brought against George Zimmerman. He is an innocent person. He shouldn’t be the victim of a mob that bases its actions on a false view of what happened.

trayvon already got “justice”. Are these protesters wanting his body dug-up and shot again? Enquiring minds want to know.

Yes, it is indeed very Pavlovian; while the motive for the Pavlovian brainwashing has been compulsion driven from the start.

See Compassion Or Compulsion?.

Only demagogues & scoundrels can possibly benefit from what is going on. But the mass media continues to parrot the "big lies" of the demagogues, insuring that a wake-up moment will be difficult to achieve.

Hardly anybody is at these rallies and the were held in places to draw a crowd of looky loos and it’s still not working. MOST people want the right to defend themselves and most people agree with the verdict but the media as usual keeps beating the “outrage” drum because they want another show trial...federal style.

If it weren’t for that pesky constitution, Obama the commie would simply have Zimmerman tried again, probably in a secret court, then hanged.

First, "The Trayvon" received his "Justice" at the hands of George Zimmerman on the night in question.

Secondly, Every supporter of the "Justice For Trayvon" crowd really want a Social and Legal rule imposed upon white America which will hold that no white may resist any type of assault, by any black, at any time. To resist any vicious black assault is to incur the most savage legal penalties and as Social penalties loss of employment now and forever, expulsion from any school, excommunication from any church without hope of readmission for any penance, the taking away from the parents of any children such seizure being by black Social Services workers and lastly an indoctrination camp.

I ain’t seeing any protests here in West by God Va. Even the spellbound democrats here know the real story. The inner city cesspool is another story tho...they look upon this as an opportunity to loot, rape, pillage and plunder the honest citizens.

Justice was done when Zimmerman shoved the soon-to-be lifeless body of Martin off of himself.

That was his message to his base.

It will be interesting to see how many of the white simpletons who voted for Ubama are about out of white guilt when the 2014 elections roll around.

You're right... this has very little to do with the beleaguered people who live in gang controlled black neighborhoods - and a whole lot to do with democrats, their shills in the MSM, and old fashion thuggy left wing politics.

Same roots that make the deaths the hundreds of black 'children' slaughtered in Chicago meaningless to liberals.

Every year for the last 50-60 years, 5000-7000 black males have been murdered by other black males. Where are the rallies for those dead black males?

I have niece who goes to UT Austin that I did an intervention on .
She thought her journalism professors were never biased .
I did a search on each of their political donations right in front of her and each one was either a Moveon.org or a few a world worker party supporters.
It rocked her .
She changed majors after that.

What we should all learn from the Trayvon case (according to liberals):

Never walk behind or near a black person because if they think you are following them that gives them the right to beat the crap out of you and if you defend yourself that will be classified as a racist attack.

The problem with the Martin shooting wasn't that a neophyte thug caught a well-deserved bullet.

The problem is that it doesn't happen 500 times per day to thugs nationwide.

the problem is there was no truth in the media. The online media did another dan rather exposing journalism showing tm was just another thug.

In any DOJ civil case ALL the thugery comes out. Spoiliation of evidence is grounds for dismissal and punative damages. (see police concealing tm records, dade county concealing, angela corey misconduct, prosecutor misconduct)

BTW the argument from the prosecution for not revealing the gz bloody pictures was they “did not have the software to transmit a JPG picture.”

really. The kind that is emailed 1000000000000000 of times a day.

It is alarming that people are agitating against the idea of self-defense, which is a fundamental human right, and in doing so are rallying around the memory of someone who died in the course of committing an assault.

There was this “protest” a few days ago that congregated at the park across the street from my house..they called it “The March through Beverly Hills” 20 people showed up..no issues, they didnt go through any residential areas..the media may want people to believe there are “Large gatherings taking place” but its not the case..most people who have lives don’t give a damn about this verdict, its only the loons who have their Che t-shirts and are Occupy freaks who are using this for their own Anti Capitalist agenda

I’m thinking this one is done run in the ground. Great Leader and the faithful keep changing the batteries, but everyone I know is tired of watching the little mechanism zing and beep around the floor. The gnat-sized American attention span also has its bad side for the left. How long can the media keep convincing even the lowest of the brows that Trayvon is still the most important / interesting story?

The Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson, NAACP, CBC protest effort was a massive failure, bust and dud combined. I do think the whole country sham protests amounted to no more then a few thousand Obama incited Black racist malcontents and American haters!!! The positive, refreshing news is that millions of loyal, honest, law abiding Black Americans stayed home, choosing to turn their backs on American traitors, POTUS Obama and his hate America ilk of thugs!!! Obama is toast!!!
