Might look like Obama. But would he behave like Obama?
The MSM lynch mob over the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman encounter continues gathering, irresponsibly incited this morning by President Obama:
The president suggested he was sympathetic to suspicion that the shooting may have been racially motivated.
Obama: “If I had a son, he`d look like Trayvon” by Stephanie Condon CBSNEWS.com March 23, 2012
So it is time to switch from antidotes to check the tear gas supply. Nicholas Stix has a directly appropriate canister to hand today:
An anonymous AP staffer has written a reportorial—an editorial disguised as a news report—demanding that neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, 28, be railroaded for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, 17, on February 26, in a gated community in Sanford, Florida.
Here’s the money quote.
In many cases, the officers make an arrest and leave it to the courts to work out whether the deadly force is justified.
Stix understands more law than AP:
That’s illegal! You can’t arrest anyone who, as far as you know, has broken no laws, and “leave it to the courts to work out”! That turns the presumption of innocence upside down, and leaves it to someone who has broken no laws to “prove his innocence,” which is exactly what the supporters of the Duke Rape Hoax pulled against the three falsely accused white Duke students
Nicholas Stix did superb work on the Duke case (the link is to his VDARE.com Duke summary article) and it looks like he is reporting for duty again. I though his earlier post Why the Secret “Interview” with Trayvon Martin’s Secret Girlfriend is Bogus, and His Alleged Last Cell Phone Call is Insignificant particularly important.
President Obama’s intervention, though, raises the issue of the broader social context of the event. Here Occidental Dissent’s The Martyrdom of Trayvon Martin is invaluable.
Obama is right: the American Black/White interface does need to be considered.
Honestly and fairly.
