Under the Fedora: All Trayvon all the Time

George Zimmerman has been found not guilty and the left is delighted.

I know I know you are seeing outrage, violence and many people beating their breasts, but believe me it is the dream result for the left and the Obama Administration.

If the verdict had been guilty what would the left use to justify more gun laws? To attempt to remove stop and frisk? How else would they be able to pretend that white on black violence is the greatest threat to young black men as opposed to other young black men?

As they say at the American Thinker

We are forever being told by the left about how awful this country is for anyone who is not white. Blacks are being gunned down in the streets by non-blacks. Except they’re not. Muslims are being discriminated against wholesale, and are afraid to leave their homes. Except they’re not. Gun owners are violent crazies bent on mass murder, except they’re not. Christians are trying to force their religion on us. Except they’re not. Tea Party members are racists and violent. I believe the Breitbart reward for evidence of the accusations of tea party racism remains unclaimed, even in this day of cell phone cameras and video.

The narrative is all and if you have to turn George Zimmerman into a “crazy ass cracker” then so be it.

The Irony of course that George Zimmerman’s while being as white as Barack Obama also has a black grandparent. If he had been elected in 2004 he would be celebrated by the same people who want his blood as the first black president.

Let’ s not also forget there is a 2nd advantage for the left here. In addition to the things the left is talking about, there are also the things that are not being talked about. The Economy, Syria, Egypt, Iran, the Economy, the Obama scandals…

Eventually of course the Zimmerman stuff will fade and the media will need to find another reason to not talk about the president’s performance in office.

I don’t see why the administration keeps worrying about that. Four years of Obama didn’t cause the public to turn against him in 2012 and he’s not running again.

One aspect of the Trayvon Martin story that is getting absolutely no press are the details as to why he was hundreds of miles from home on what would normally be a school day.

You never know the answer to a question you never ask, and after this one story by Frances Robles in the Miami Herald, it seems that the media stopped asking questions about Trayvon. But that one article by Frances Robles pulled the thread that unraveled an important story, and for a long time, the only people who kept digging on that story were the bloggers at The Last Refuge.

MDSPD Chief Charles Hurley was suppressing the truth about the crime problem within the Miami-Dade school system, and this was why Trayvon Martin never got arrested for his crimes. Instead, he got suspended from school,

And that is why Trayvon Martin was hundreds of miles from home and on his path to George Zimmerman, and way Stacy McCain was mentioned twice in two days on the Rush Limbaugh Show.

There was testimony on the IRS scandal this week. It linked the White House to the IRS scandal. I wonder if anyone in the MSM is going to bother with it or if the trayvon noise will still be too loud?

Sorry that’s not true, I don’t wonder at all.

 

North Korea have been caught trying to smuggle weapons through the Panama Canal.

Some things simply never change.

 

It’s considered a given that a CEO and labor are meant to be at people’s throats, this isn’t the case at Market Basket a Supermarket chain in New England where Arthur T Demoulas a multi Millionare owner and CEO faces ejection from the 9 person board.

Mr. Demoulas potential ejection has mobilized workers throughout the 72 store company to appear at the location of the vote to show support for their owner.

How many companies would absolutely KILL for that kind of loyalty from their non union staff?

 

Ok this might sound slightly sexist, but I was watching, A Few Good Men Recently. It’s a great movie but what I really noticed was just how attractive Demi Moore was in that picture. Not once in the movie is she wearing anything even slightly revealing yet she was simply strikingly beautiful, something I never really noticed before.

That is the true measure of beauty. Sort of like my wife 1st thing in the morning, best morning face in the world.

I find my self noticing this stuff a lot lately, I’m guessing it has something to do with turning 50.

 

Speaking of Movies I caught two conservative pictures this week. I finally saw Hating Breitbart on DVD. It was very weird to see events I was at, it was even weirder to seen Andrew in places where I hadn’t seen him before.

I wish I knew him better, he always treated me very nice, one odd thing, I don’t see why I got a credit in the movie, the two views of me were in passing and none of my footage was used.

 

I also saw Monsters University, this time with the entire family. This was one of the best written animated movies I ever saw and (minor spoiler) the decision to use the old technology from the first picture and then switch to modern technology.

This movie simply oozed conservative values and themes, I’m shocked Hollywood allowed it to come out.

 

Some sports. The AL won the All Star Game 3-0 but the big story was the last All Star Appearance (barring another comeback) of Mariano Rivera, objectively the best closer of all time and it’s not even close.

Red Sox fans have a soft spot for Rivera because they were able to beat him twice on the way to the World Series but players like Rivera & Jeter and Posada have always been a struggle for Red Sox fans who are torn between the instinctive hatred of the Yankees and respect for players of great skill who play the game the right way.

I’m going to miss Rivera when he’s gone, except in the 9th inning of any game the Yankees lead the Sox by 3 runs or less.

 

I talked about the sixth Doctor special in my last piece and re-watching it I noticed one thing that was missing from that special that was in every other.

David Tennant

The 10th Doctor had appeared in every other Doctor Who special but the 6th doctor, Nah.

I wonder if he’s skip the seventh doctor’s special too.

Speaking of Sylvester McCoy the 7th doctor his plays the wizard Ragagast in the new Peter Jackson trilogy the Hobbit.

Jackson’s 2nd movie looks great but he’s taking a lot of liberties with the book, given it’s a short book you have to stretch it with three movies but there are things that shouldn’t be hard to keep.lays the wizard Ragagast in the new Peter Jackson trillogy one thing that was missing from that special that was in

 

Finally while the Zimmerman case continues to dominate the news some extraordinary things have been happening. Including Pope Francis being named man of the year by …Vanity Fair Italy.

Slowly but surely this Pope is setting up the background noise. He is the ultimate in the shrewd as serpents and simple as doves field.

But as the Pope, he oughta be

See ya next week.
