Anybody Protesting About Trayvon Martin Right Now Does Not Have A Life

What kind of person gets all militant at this point about Trayvon Martin (aside from his loved ones)? We don’t know what happened. We don’t know if his killing was justified or not. We don’t know if he was the aggressor. We don’t know if he was the victim of a murder. We don’t know.

Anyone with a smidgen of sense does not make public statements in such an inflammatory case without having the facts.

That Trayvon Martin was unarmed means nothing. Thousands of women are raped by unarmed men. You don’t need arms to kill somebody. You can be a deadly threat without being armed.

Anybody getting all militant about Trayvon Martin is a race-hating moron, habitually reacting to the stimuli of potential white racism. Only somebody who does not have a life will start marching in the streets and taking photos of themselves in hoodies when we don’t know yet whether Trayvon was a victim or a thug.

People who are acting out right now about Trayvon Martin are looking for an excuse to march and to get militant and to act aggrieved because they have this grudge against white racism and against America and they’re looking for any opportunity to trash this country and to feel like a victim so that they are then absolved from moral responsibility for their actions.

Trayvon Martin protesters would be better off working hard, getting educated, nurturing their friendships and their families rather than wasting their time marching about something they know nothing about. Losers march in ignorance. Winners work hard, get educated and support their friends and families.

The president bears much of the responsibility for this senseless hatred of America. He purposely whipped up racial hatred in this case and he did it out of ignorance of the case because not even the president knows what really happened that fateful night in Florida.

President Obama deliberately appeals to the mob and to the human’s worst instincts. He’s a race-baiter like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. He whips up hatred based on economic class, claiming that the rich one percent supposedly ruin things for the rest of us.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Hundreds of people descended on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall on Monday evening to denounce the slaying last month of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and demand that an arrest be made in the highly charged Florida case.

The rally came the same day that hundreds of people joined leading civil rights advocates in Sanford, Fla., to criticize authorities for failing to arrest Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch captian. Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense after reporting him to police as a suspicious person and apparently confronting the African American teenager.

At L.A.’s City Hall, protesters said the failure of authorities to arrest Zimmerman is an example of a criminal justice system that has failed repeatedly to protect the rights of African Americans and Latinos.

“I’m here because I want to fight racism,” said Alejandra Cruz, 27, an attorney who lives in East Los Angeles.
