#NewTone: Supporters use #Trayvon’s birthday to call for the death of G. Zimmerman


Twitchy.com documented jack asses crawling out of the woodwork today to wish Trayvon Martin a happy birthday, and a few of those quoted at their site couldn’t resist the temptation to call for George Zimmerman’s death:

The shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman took place on the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida. A judge and jury have yet to find Zimmerman guilty of a crime; nonetheless, many Twitter users believe Zimmerman is a ruthless killer. Today would have been Martin’s 18th birthday, and Twitter’s anti-Zimmerman forces let the hate flow.

A sampling of some of the tweets:

Here’s another not posted at Twitchy:

And a friendly note to Zimmerman supporters from late last week:

Also, it seems one of the primary hashtags to use for these “peaceful” supporters is #F*ckZimmerman (without the “*”, of course). Stay classy, and all that.

Here’s a tip for those of you who don’t wade onto social media much: This type of garbage is CONSTANT from Trayvon Martin supporters on both Twitter and Facebook. If you haven’t fallen for the MSM narrative on this case, you’re a racist, you support slavery, and you deserve to die as “Zimmerman does.” It’s the dirty little secret that race-baiting MSM types both in straight journalism and opinion journalism don’t want to tell you about. The violence and death threats to Zimmerman and anyone who supports him, and the despicable and vile things said to anyone who tries to lay out the actual facts of the case as we know them is sickening and is, unfortunately, emblematic of deeply troubling “street culture” that condones and emboldens this type of unacceptable behavior. But self-important leftists like Jonathan Capehart at the Washington Post only want too focus on the few people who have either expressed racism about Trayvon Martin or who have used Trayvon Martin’s death to post deliberately provocative racially-tinged Tweets to draw attention to themselves. Honestly, if I had about a week to document every disgusting thing said by a Trayvon Martin supporter on social media sites it would fill up two or three encyclopedia-sized books. I kid you not. It’s very real, and it’s extremely disturbing, especially when you consider that a lot of those expressing themselves in such a verbally violent manner or teens and twenty-somethings. Sign of the times?

Capehart and other left-wing concern trolls can whine all they want about the “rabid hate” aimed at Trayvon Martin supporters, but until they speak out at the much more prominent and noticeable hate coming from the lynch mob types calling for Zimmerman’s death (and the death/beating of Zimmerman’s defenders) before the trial has even started, they’ll earn credibility on this issue from me on about the 12th of never.

Ridiculous QOTD: Conyers urges others to not call illegal immigrants “illegal”


Sigh. Via Yahoo News’ Ticket blog:

WASHINGTON—During opening statements for the first House Judiciary Committee hearing addressing comprehensive immigration reform, the top ranking Democrat on the committee urged his fellow members and the witnesses present to avoid using the phrase “illegal immigrant” during the daylong proceedings.

“I hope no one uses the term ‘illegal immigrants’ here today,” said Committee Ranking Member John Conyers of Michigan. “Our citizens are not illeg—the people in this country are not illegal. They are out of status. They’re new Americans that are immigrants, and I think we can forge a path to citizenship that will be able to pass muster.”

Not only is this blatant pandering to a coveted “minority group”, it’s also yet another example of the types of deliberate word games Democrats like to play via the redefinition of what something means. So we shouldn’t call people who are here illegally “illegals.” What does that make people who ARE here legally? “More legal”? Illegals should now be called “out of status” immigrants, according to Conyers. Should legals be called “in status”? Are there levels of “legality”? When does it stop?

Quite frankly I’m not sure what’s worse: Self-important politically correct politicos and mainstream media types referring to illegal immigrants as “undocumented” or calling them “out of status.” Are there any other substitute terms I missed?

This is ridiculous beyond belief, and I say this as someone who many fellow conservatives would probably view as a “RINO” on the illegal immigration issue. I just get so sick of the left redefining words, and shifting the debate away from what it’s supposed to be about (which is what they do so often with abortion by making it about the “mother’s health” instead of the baby). If we’re going to have this debate on illegal immigration – and it’s pretty clear we are – let’s at least be honest and upfront both about what’s going on in America and across the border, and in the wording we use when describing it.

Have I mentioned that North Korea is weird?

Here’s a recent propaganda video from the world’s largest prison camp masquerading as a nation, in which a sleeper dreams of what appears to be the North Korean “space program,” but culminates in a missile attack on New York City.

All set to the tune of “We are the World.” Really.

FOX News provides a translation of some of the captions:

“Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing,” reads a caption translated from Korean. “It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself.”

The video concludes with the young man saying his dream will “surely” come true. As of early Tuesday, it had been viewed more than 60,000 times.

“Despite all kinds of attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us … never will anyone be able to stop the people marching toward a final victory,” a final caption reads.

EARLIER: It’s also the “Cannibal Kingdom.”  Nothing amusing about that.

UPDATE: Ooopsie! It seems the Great People’s Propaganda Department also ripped off an American computer game to make this video. I think we know what they’ve been doing in the office, when the commissars weren’t watching.

UPDATE II: Well, you’ll just have to take my word for it; Activision filed a copyright complaint with YouTube and the video is gone. Fair warning to the guys in the Glorious People’s Video Department: the latest Dear Leader does not like people who make him look bad. Don’t be surprised if he drops a mortar on your heads.
