Load Up and Get Ready

It's been over five years since the Zimmerman - Martin shooting.  Left alone, this event would eventually be remembered by those select few who study history these days.  And yes, that was a shot.  Sadly, there are a few people who don't want to let a sleeping dog lie.

So tonight we're off to the races.  Load up and keep reading for an opinionated piece grounded in cold facts.

On the evening of February 26, 2012, an enterprising young choir boy named Trayvon Benjamin Martin decided to conduct an unscientific experiment with his test subject of choice, George Michael Zimmerman.  The first test was to determine the degree of hardness of Zimmerman's proboscis, which was determined to be a good deal softer than Martin's fist.  The second test was to determine which was harder, Zimmerman's head or the ubiquitous sidewalk.  It was determined that the sidewalk was harder than Zimmerman's skull.

In summary, Martin handed Zimmerman the old haymaker to snot locker, then jumped on top of him and started pounding his head on the sidewalk.  Zimmerman shot Martin, killing him.

This, in my mind, is a justifiable use of force.  The local police thought so too, and declared the entire business a very clear case of self-defense.  Not everyone agreed with this.  Florida governor Rick Scott appointed a special persecutor, and Zimmerman was charged with manslaughter and murder two.  A jury found him not guilty on all counts.

I wrote about the Trayvon shooting and the subsequent fallout here and here.  Any number of violent attacks perpetrated by blacks on white victims took place, and most were not covered by commercial news media.

Now an elite cadre of idiots and hate mongers have decided that the nation needs stirring up and maybe a few bucks can be made at the same time.  So here we go: 'Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story' takes an emotional look back at the shooting that divided a nation

This refers to a six part self-proclaimed supremely entitled mockumentary, “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story”.  The fertilizer hits the turbine blades tonight (Monday, July 30th, 2018) on Paramount Network and BET (Black Entertainment Television), and I expect a repeat performance of the fallout to begin right away and last until well after the final segment has aired.

From the article:
The directors of the documentary, Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason, said they wanted to expose what they called the systemic racism that contributed to the not-guilty verdict, as well as to provide an opportunity for Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, to share their story on the screen for the first time. “Rest In Power” was inspired in large part by the 2017 book "Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin" by Fulton and Martin.
Racism did not contribute to the verdict.  Anyone who actually believes Zimmerman is guilty of murder should go find their very own Trayvon and have him pound their head on the sidewalk a while.  With any luck, some moonbat will think to do this and the average IQ of the U.S. will increase by some small fraction.

For all practical purposes, my immediate thought is to pack your gat, carry some extra ammo, and be very aware of your surroundings at all times.  Places you generally would feel safe are not, and won't be for some time to come.  Especially if this six part series about how much fun it is for black people to kill white people takes off like the producers hope it will.

Me, I'm going out to get a haircut this afternoon at a good old fashioned barber shop.  Then I'm going to the grocery store, and then I'm staying inside. Sometime between now and 11:00 PM, I'm going to make very certain that I know where all my fire extinguishers are kept, that they are all charged, and that my arsenal is ready to go.

In film as in politics: division makes money. That's all these people really care about.

There's truth in that, CW.

---Chris is right (as usual).
---And yes, we DO have those who LOVE beating dead horses (among other things, usually in the nether-regions),
---"Mockumentary" Good call there.
---How about those "authors" delve into the systematic DECLINE of the black family AND community and the urge to "take from others because they can" mentality that permeates it today?
That at least would carry a heavier weight of TURTH about it, right?
(just my 2 cents on this)

Roll safe out there.

You're right about that, Bob. I see instances of the 'take it if it's free' mentality all the time.
