Another Race-based Show Trial
Turns Into Farce

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 6/30/2013 4:50:03 AM

1.The Sound of Wet Grass: Black Racists´ War on Black Women The Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case has come to trial this week and the best thing that´s been said about it is from Thomas Maguire: "I´m proud to say I live in a country where the show trials look more like an SNL [Saturday Night Live] skit." You probably won´t know that if your source of information about the trial is the mainstream media and if your lifestyle doesn´t permit you to sit in front of the TV for hours watching the trial.

The prosecutors should be prosecuted. They knew they had no case but hoped to win on pretrial publicity and keeping exculpatory evidence out of court.

Blame the entire media and the state of Florida for this mess. If Mr Zimmerman gets aquitted, as he should, the riots will follow and the media will have its field day with it.
The Orlando Urinal has been over the top with its bias reporting and I for one have stopped reading their rag...for good

Zimmerman should be acquitted. A large number of blacks, who wallow in a rotten culture, will riot. They will be joined by other morons from the Occupy Wall Street crowd. They will hurt and kill white people. PC will end and the fuse lit. It won´t be over until we, who have had it!, say it ends. The sub-culture is about to make a huge mistake. This ´white-ass-cracker´ will be ready to defend self and family with deadly force. I´ll not comply with any ´order´ to stand down.

The day of the verdict make sure you are exercising your 2nd Amendment rights. If he is found innocent, which he is, the riots will be different than previous black riots where they destroyed their own neighborhoods. The flash mobs and the knock out game or polar bear hunting as they call it will be the preferred method. Read "White Girl Bleed a lot" the epidemic of black mob violence against whites will explode. There will little effort by local law enforcement to stop it.

This is indeed a show trial, and what it´s showing is that racism is not only alive and well, but that it´s endemic to blacks and liberals. Their casual acceptance of Jeantel´s use of racist terms (amazingly because they are common in her culture) speaks volumes.

The Obama presidency has set back race relations a hundred years.

"For this a perfectly innocent man ´s life has been ruined and he and his family impoverished. Let that sink in."

When GZ is acquitted, what does he do for a future. He doesn´t qualify for the witness protection program that hides one´s identity. Even if he did, Obama and Holder´s racialist views wouldn´t permit it. He cannot remain in Sanford or even Florida for fear for his life. What black boycott fearing company or government entity will want to hire him?

When acquitted, GZ will also live in fear of an Obama Justice Department civil rights suit that charges him with denying the civil rights of a black thug to pound him to death. The black supremacists in DoJ will have no qualms about pursuing Zimmerman, especially with the 2014 elections. Obama, Holder and Valerie Jarrett will all don hoodies in order to maximize black voter turnout in 11/14. George´s entire life will be a neighborhood watch program, and he will likely not have a gun permit to protect himself.

#8´s post reminded me that some black members of congress appeared on the floor of the house wearing black hoodies. Idiots.
Separate from that, the mentally challenged black girl, when asked what she and saint trayvon were talking about that day, from noon until 7, she answered, "The (NBA) all star game."
Really? Seven hours of talk about the all star game????
Finally, she was asked to look at several documents, by Attorney West. But he asked her to read out loud, just the cursive letter.
He should have asked her to read out loud the printed documents. I suspect she could not have done so.

When will ANY Law Enforcement Officer or State Attorney have the Ethics, Integrity, or even the guts to arrest and prosecute the Black Racist for a hate crime the same as they do the White Racist?

When it comes to Black Racist, like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Van Jones, other members of the DNC and Administration, the LEO´s turn out to be yellow bellied chicken feathered cowards.

It will be a shame on ALL Black people if these blacks who apparently can´t think intelligently, do riot and kill white people. The retaliation against all blacks may possibly be disastrous.

Betcha Jesse and Al (extreme racist and cowards themselves) won´t be there to contain an obvious hate crime.

This will be the greatest test for LEO´s and Prosecutors. I hope they can prove me wrong.

0bama´s surrogate son was on his way home with 2 of the 3 ingredients for DANK..

Purple drank is a slang term for a recreational drug popular in the hip hop community in the southern United States, originating in Houston, Texas. Its main ingredient is prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine.[1] Cough syrup is typically mixed with ingredients such as Sprite soft drink or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy. The purplish hue of purple drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup.

John Good, who witnessed the fight between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman has just devastated the State´s case,

Tooting my own horn, as I watched the slow Bronco chase from my BOQ room in Barbers Point, Hawaii (on my last AD stint flying in the Reserves), I told my pal that no matter what, OJ would be found innocent, acquitted because of where they´d get the jury. Same goes for this trial. It doesn´t matter if a video surfaces where Trayvon is seen trying to murder George, George is going to jail for second degree murder. To most Americans, the only fact is the false premise that Zimmerman is a racist and that is the ONLY thing that matters. Like the Mark Fuhrman trial jury, race will be the only thing that matters to this jury. It would be so refreshing if I was wrong, but based on recent history, I don´t think so.

The "Black Studies" departments both spawned and manned and reinforced the "Grievance Industry." Together they have created a cartoonish fantasy about history and race.
It´s a true "Socialist/Marxist" tour de force.
It´s a huge and profitable industry. Like all Marxist schemes, however, it is non-sustainable as the parasitic class destroys it´s host organism, the productive class.

I must, begrudgingly, applaud the Left for it´s victory.

It seems we were all too busy working.

Riots will ensue, martial law will be declared and the fundamental transformation of America will be complete.

The selection of an all white jury is not by accident. The prosecution has already shown itself to be below contempt. I put nothing past them.

2nd post apologies, but...
If you watch the black girl on video, testifying, when she lies, she bounces up and down on her buttocks, and swivels her neck.
In poker, that is called a ´tell.´
I find it difficult to remember a less credible witness, in my 30 years of arbitration practice.
And Mr. Good was one of the most credible witnesses I have ever seen.

Not to worry. Zimmerman will be convicted. Why? Because the prosecution´s star witness, Jabba the Teenager´s testimony will resonate in the minds of a jury made up completely of white women. The facts of the case mean nothing. All you have to do is look at that fat, illiterate lard-butt product of fifty years of liberal indoctrination, and become awash in white guilt and misplaced sympathy.

I have followed the trial by watching some of it, but more so by reading reports and analyses online.

This is quite possibly the finest commentary to date. Thanks so much for finding and posting.

Also, I recommend the link within the article about how the Martin legal team choreographed Rachel´s testimony. I´m still not convinced she heard anything through the cell phone, particularly anything spoken by George.

#19, I agree with to a good point. Women are who put Obama in office, twice. They are the ones that work the hardest to make sure even late term abortions are available to all, and would prefer someone else pay for them. I am not speaking of all women, and the millions of conservative women out there, but it´s safe to say most women are in this camp. I´ll avoid the argument that early founding fathers had it right not allowing women to vote.....

That said, Zimmerman may be convicted of something like manslaughter. Some twisted logic that he was "illegally stalking" Martin, and since he was "illegally stalking" and such action resulted in death, it´s a manslaughter beef.

I´ll bet a dollar to a donut that is the outcome. No one cares what happens to Zimmerman, and the left will have at least something to cheer and there will be an avoidance of riots, especially if Zimmerman gets the max for manslaughter.

Rachel had to be afraid. Recruited by Sybrina, who demanded that Zimmerman be arrested and began talking race on Day One, and Benjamin Crump and prosecutor De La Rionda, she had been schooled in what she was supposed to say in court. The court allowed Sybrina to stay in the courtroom, in the front row immediately opposite Rachel, over the defense´s objections.

Sybrina stared daggers throughout Rachel´s turn on the stand.

She was used.

Paula Deen is the target of extortion via the legal system and the Press are clueless.

Paula´s being persecuted for a ´thought crime´ but Rachel Jeantel is a hero for calling me and mine a racist term.

When Jesus said of the end times nation against nation you should remember the Greek root to ´nation´ is ethnos.

Properly put - in the end times it will be ethnicity waging war on ethnicity.

#25: I don´t think he can be convicted of manslaughter as he isn´t charged with that. He´s up for 2nd degree murder and the state clearly has not made the case for that. I don´t think they can revise the charges at this point.

Andrew Branca is doing a great job of covering the trial for Legal Insurrection. Branca is a lawyer, an expert on self defense.

Here is his wrapup of the trial to date. You will find a number of links to his daily coverage of the trial and other important material. He is a good one to follow if you haven´t time to watch the television coverage. Re TV, I record it. Then I can cut out all the ads and the HLN commentators, who are worthless and/or biased.

PS. It goes without saying that theconservativetreehouse.com is the go to site for this case. In addition to reporting on the trial, they are the ones who did most o the heavy lifting in investigative research. Much of what we are hearing and seeing was brought to light by their work. And that work continues. They are really digging and finding out more on the convoluted and corrupt back story on this trial and the Scheme Team.

I think the "yes, sir" had to do with her rudeness the day before. Someone - the judge? - had a conversation with her or the prosecutor advising them that she must show more respect. At one point she responded "yes, ma´am" to the judge.

As for self-defense, here (from Andrew Branca at Legal Insurrection) is a brief explanation of Florida´s self-defense defense:

This line of questioning seems remarkably foolish, for two reasons. First, there is no requirement under the law of self defense in Florida, or any other state, that a person must suffer so much as a scratch before they can use force, and even deadly force, in self-defense. All that the law of self-defense requires is that you have been REASONABLY IN FEAR of imminent death or grave bodily harm–it does NOT require that you ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE death or grave bodily harm before you can act in self-defense.

Second, however much effort Mr. de la Rionda might invest in arguing that Zimmerman suffered no meaningful injury, the numerous bloody photos of his injuries that night easily belie any such claims.


http://legalinsurrection.com/2013/06/zimmerman-trial-day-5-analysis-video-states-own-witnesses-undercut-theory-of-guilt/

I do believe manslaughter is also on the table, but even that is too much. This homicide was justifiable. Self-defense.

Early on the blogger at wagist.com developed a very good theory that Trayvon was back at the place where he was staying and for some reason decided to double back and confront GZ.

This has been the subject of a recent article. We may well hear more of that before the trial is over.

This is probably one of the reasons that West questioned Rachel so intensively about the times when her lengthy phone connection with TM were interuppted. The signal lost. There is also a theory that she may have egged TM on to go and get that cracka.

It would be really beneficial to all those high school and college kids and recent college grads who cannot find employment this summer to check out the trial because it´s interesting and fun and they can discover all the ways to watch it LIVE like, LegalInsurrection.com; CNN - I think; GBTV.com, and probably others. They can watch some really smart professionals, and it´s important for them to see something without the MSM filter.

#26: On Friday night, I think on CNN, there was an interview with a woman, Trayvon´s Father´s second wife who claimed SHE raised Trayvon from the age of 3 until the father left her for the next woman. She was very credible and obviously heart broken. Isn´t that just the most sublime irony: that "Mom" sabrina, who master-minded this whole prosecution, didn´t even raise Trayvon, and maybe he changed from what looked like a decent kid into the thug he was once only after the woman who raised him was out of the picture? And of course Sabrina and the father already got an unreported sum of money from the HOA. What a joke!

What once passed for "show trials," under the Bolsheviks in the old USSR, have now become the round-the-clock court coverages and distortions by ABC, CBS, NBC/MSNBC, CNN, PBS, NPR et al...And it doesn´t take a "Philadelphia Lawyer" with a degree from Harvard to figure it out.

Keep in mind, the world was initially informed, by Diane, Brian, Wolfie, Scottie and their associated leftists in the MSM, that young Trayvon was simply a Skittles loving "innocent child," gunned down in cold blood by a neighborhood vigilante killer.

Of course Zimmerman should never have been indicted, and should never have been charged. I presume he will be found not guilty after this farcical trial. Maybe the prosecutor even expected to lose, maybe the prosecutor is making an effort to lose. But none of that helps Zimmerman. One can argue that Obama made it an issue, and the Obama campaign, and that Zimmerman is more of a victim of the Obamanation than anything else.

Note that from 9/11/2001 until maybe the Zimmerman trial, race relations in the US went silent. Oh sure, that fool Eric Holder did this and didn´t do that, but it mostly stayed out of the headlines. Now that Iraq is over and Afghanistan cooling, guess what, the ill promises of the Obamanation are coming to the forefront. And Zimmerman gets to be the poster-boy.

When Dee Dee aka Rachel aka Diamond Eugene was asked to describe the sound of wet grass ,
after the inevitable dead air for minutes while she tried to remember what she had been coached to say-she mumbled something about leaves falling.
I want to know what carrier and brand of cell phone Trayvon used .
Because the combination can clearly transmit the sound of wet grass to a woman who was multitasking -she was doing her hair in the bathroom as she listened for the sounds of grass.
While the rest of us get dropped calls and broken conversations.
OTOH- Could the " Get Off " have been shouted by the eyewitness to Trayvon beating Zimmerman
( John Good ) before he ran to call 911 ?
Clarice mentioned Paula Deen.
A little reported fact is that the woman suing Deen is white and has given a sworn statement that she has never actually heard Deen use a racial slur.

I´ve been fascinated with the trial and haven´t missed much of the live coverage, via legalinsurrection website.

This article brings up a point that struck me when I heard it during the cross-exam of Rachel. Clarice writes "...more important than her lies and incoherence was her admission that she didn´t know who threw the first punch ...". During that exchange in court, when she said she heard someone get hit, Mr. West asked if she could know for sure that it was Trayvon who had gotten hit, couldn´t it just have easily been Trayvon jamming his fist into Mr. Zimmerman´s nose? Immediately, Rachel spoke very clearly, not in her blurred, mumbled style, but very clearly. She said "What ... you didn´t get that outta me !"

To me it indicated that she knew that was what had happened but was doing her best not to express it, that no matter how many times she was asked, this attorney couldn´t possibly have gotten her to say that out loud. I hope there is a follow up to this exchange.

I´ve not watched the trial, just seen snippets here and there, read articles and comments --pro and con.

Something occurred to me while reading the posts here this morning: where was St. Trayvon´s phone found?

Was it in his pocket? Or was it found several feet/yards away from the scene of the shooting?

It´s always been my believe that the Punk ambushed Zimmerman; doubled back and was waiting for Zimmerman, jumped out and attacked him. That´s what gave him the upper hand --so to speak.

If the cell phone was found in the Punk´s pocket, that would indicate that he broke the connection with Rachel, put the phone in his pocket [or hoodie pouch], and got ready to jump Zimmerman as Zimmerman neared the Punk´s hiding place.

I have been watching the trial and the talking heads on HLN. It is amazing to me to see how people can look at the same testimony and see it so differently. I think, as someone above said, it goes back to women and the white guilt. Almost every woman, both black and white, seem to still believe that Zimmerman was the agressor and Trayvon was a saint. I guess they believe Zimmerman pounded his own head into the cement.

I am hopeful for an acquittal, but fear for the jurors, if that is their decision. Also, I wonder if the race baiters like Jesse and Al will ever stop. I already know the answer to that.

According to this excellent report on and analysis of Trayvon´s "Last Hour" by Jack Cashill, TM was wearing ear buds while talking with Rachel. Although she said she heard them fall off (or be knocked off), Cashill says they were found in his pocket.

http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/05/trayvon_martins_final_hour.html

Although the LE crime scene investigator testified to having found his cell phone and ear pieces on the grass, I seem to remember that the first-responding officer looked through his pockets for an ID. ???

Cashill also explores TM´s involvement in drugs in this article. More good information.

Don´t count out an all-woman jury yet--I actually tried a young black punk like Trayvon on a robbery charge--it was a juvenile prosecution so it was done in county court. The jury was almost all women, maybe one or two guys on a 12-person jury, a woman was the presiding juror; the kid had a lot of sympathetic elements to his story, some of the jurors were crying during final statements. They gave him more than I asked for, a ten-year determinate sentence (stays in juvenile prison til he turns 18, spends the rest of ten years in the state pen.) That was a stout jury.

Having served on a couple of juries, I can personally attest to the fact that not all jurors are able to see the fire for all of the smoke. Some are feelings people and not able to think logically. The daily frustration of dealing with these people was almost more than I could handle. If someone says it is plain that the shirt Zimmerman had on was white, they would say, but it could have been an off white color. Oh, and I thought we were already in the midst of a race riot/war.

If Jenteal is a model of that culture, they can have it. Cowardice in the face of Sharpton-style bullying is why this farce proceeded. Now the media is "warning" of riots and looting. As if that wasn´t the point of this whole exercise from the get-go.

When will this sorry spectacle end? This case never should have gone to trial. At this point, there is no evidence to support anything other than self-defense. Just end this farce!

Liberals Digging Their Political Graves

Do liberals understand what they are doing? I don´t think they do. I think that they are blinkered by their one-dimensional view of politics: it reduces to the struggle for social justice. In 2010 after the midterm the Obamis decided they had to punch back twice as hard against the moneyed interests that would be unleashed by Citizens United. In Seattle the activist left is planning another May Day march: “Capitalist police state... rape of civil liberties.” Oh yeah! Liberals do not think about the real meat of political philosophy, which is not to design a perfect political system with perfect

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam.

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
