To me, what is most disturbing about the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin issue is the Leftist LUNC in seeing the once noble and compassionate civil rights movement ultimately morph into the now spiteful and self-serving uncivil wrong movement.
Where once the Left courageously marched against racial injustice and gallantly advocated for basic rights for all mankind and healthy racial sensitivity, in recent times they have mobilized the media, celebrates, and even governmental entities into fomenting racial strife, vigilante-like injustice, bullying, and racial hyper-sensitivity.
It is expected that the usual suspects (Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the NAACP--see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE) would feature prominently in the virtual manufactured racially-charged fray of the Zimmerman/Martin case (there is no legitimate or significant racial component--see HERE and HERE), and exploit it to mobilize support and funding for their lucrative and powerful race-baiting businesses, and that their divisive rhetoric and propaganda would be trumpeted by the sympathetic leftist media. (ibid.).
However, things reached a new low when the President of the U.S. discriminatingly joined in the mob mentality (see HERE and HERE and HERE) and, through Eric Holder (see HERE and HERE), in a non-federal case, turned the justice department into a community organizing and protest unit (see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE), biased against a citizen who is supposed to be presumed innocent until proven otherwise. The department whose constitutional duty it was to protect and defend rights and insure justice, became the instrument of quite the opposite, and this presumably as a part of its extra-constitutional anti-gun agenda (see HERE).
The hypocrisy here is that President Obama promised to "rid the [Justice] department of ideologues and political cronies…the
Civil Rights Division will actually be staffed with civil rights lawyers
who prosecute civil rights violations, and employment discrimination,
and hate crimes."—09/28/07, Washington, D.C.(See HERE)
With the Left having weaved this strand of the hell-destined hand basket, it comes as no surprise that homegrown terrorists would be embolden to pay violence on innocent people, at times under the guise of "this is for Trayvon Martin "(see HERE and HERE and HERE), and call for the beheading of Zimmerman (see HERE).
And, of course, no leftist agenda would be complete without the self-serving mangling of the English language. During the trial, and as a part of public discourse surrounding the Zimmerman/Martin case, specific racial categorizations typically favored by the Left (that is, when its suites their purposes--as with diversity issues) like Jew, Hispanic, etc., were soon abandoned.for the general label of "white" (or the intentionally discrediting "self-proclaimed Hispanic") because its better fit the more inflammatory "white vs black" narrative. And, terms typically considered as racist or bigoted, were conveniently, if not hypocritically, deemed otherwise. (See HERE)
Ironically, the Left, who is renown for inclusion and peace and unity amidst diversity, and is supposed to be, to a fault, deferential to minority needs and issues, has through the course of this controversy corroded race relations, passionately engaged in discriminatory and divisive rhetoric and actions, and scathingly decried the ruling of an all female jury (see HERE and HERE and HERE), in the trial of a Jewish Peruvian (see HERE and HERE), who fatally defended himself from being beaten for allegedly being gay and a predatory pedaphilic rapist. (See HERE .and HERE and HEFE).
How did the civil rights movement eventually go so wrong? I explain it, in part here: The Politics of Race, and The Politics of Compassion
