My title, in case you are terminally retarded, is sarcasm. I can’t say I’m shocked by the tsunami of bullshit being spewed by the media, especially on MSNBC and CNN, that has decided that the shooting death of Trayvon Martin is a race hate crime and that George Zimmerman is a KKK, niggah hating, racist.

Oh, did I mention that Trayvon is a peaceful child, a little boy really, who just happened to be walking along minding his own business when this racist, crazed madman came charging at him and shot him from behind through his Stop Global Warming and War hoodie.

That will at least be the Hollywood version once this insanity is turned into a cinematic cash register. Now for the facts. George Zimmerman, the alleged shooter, is a Democrat and Latino. That means he ain’t white. So, not white, not Republican. SHIT!! There goes the Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton platform for moral outrage.

And Trayvon? Well, looks like he is not the little innocent boy just munching Skittles. NBC Miami is reporting:

The 17-year-old was suspended three times in a series of incidents that included getting caught spraying graffiti and carrying an empty baggie with traces of marijuana, according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by the Miami Herald.

The report details an incident from October, when a school police investigator said he spotted Martin on a surveillance camera “hiding and being suspicious” in an unauthorized area at Krop High School.

The investigator later saw Martin mark a door with “W.T.F.” or “what the f–k,” the report said. When the school cop searched Martin’s backpack the next day looking for the graffiti marker, he reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver described as a “burglary tool,” the report said.

If Trayvon was hitting the weed then we can understand why he was needing his Skittles. Gotta deal with the munchies if you’re smoking. Right?

Well, leaks from the police department (which are corroborated by an eyewitness), has Trayvon on top of Zimmerman punching him before the gun goes off. According to the San Francisco Chronicle:

George Zimmerman told police in Sanford, Florida, that he shot Trayvon Martin after being punched in the nose and having his head slammed into the sidewalk, said City Manager Nolan Bonaparte Jr.

Bonaparte confirmed an Orlando Sentinel report yesterday that detailed Zimmerman’s side of story. Zimmerman, whose mother is Hispanic and father is white, claimed self-defense in the Feb. 26 shooting of Martin, an unarmed, black 17-year-old, and hasn’t been arrested.

If true, this changes the conventional wisdom narrative dramatically. Zimmerman not only has a stand his ground defense argument, but he also has a self-defense argument.

It is outrageous that once again Obama inserts himself into a local law enforcement issue, plays the race card and shoots his goddamn mouth off before the facts are in. But he has a track record of playing the race card. Remember when he labeled the Cambridge police officer a racists three years ago and had to put on a beer summit to walk back his stupidity.

I suggest the media shut up and wait for the investigation. Prejudging Zimmerman is not justice. But hey, maybe he’s a wetback and has some illegal relatives. In that case maybe it is okay to use frontier justice, even if unjust, to feed the media hunger for a black David versus a white Goliath narrative. I am surprised by the silence out of the Latino community. Too bad Zimmerman is not named Lopez or Garcia or Rubio. Maybe then he would earn some benefit of the doubt. Zimmerman? Got to be a Nazi.

Meanwhile, the New Black Panthers, true to their ignorance and stupidity, have put out a bounty to get Zimmerman. See, if you are black it is okay to put out a bounty to hunt down someone from another race. That’s okay. That’s moral.

Of course, you don’t hear Obama denouncing that kind of racist crap. He just panders to the black thing. As he said the other day:

But my main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon. And, you know, I think they are right to expect that all of us, as Americans, are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves and that we’re going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.

Despicable.
