Martin Luther King´s Son: Trayvon
Murdered Because He Was Black

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/25/2013 9:48:48 AM

On Saturday, Martin Luther King III, son of the civil rights icon, used a rally that honored the 50th anniversary of the Reverend Doctor´s "I Have a Dream" to politicize and inject race into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, asserting he was killed because of the color of his skin. "Sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin´s mother and father remind us that far too frequently the color of one´s skin remains a license to profile, arrest, and to even murder with no regard to the content of one´s character," Martin Luther King III declared. "Regressive ´stand your ground´ laws must

No, he was killed because he was a thug beating up and trying to intimidate a white Hispanic man who was capable of self-defense.

The black community very very rarely criticizes black idiots. Come to think of it, the Muslims don´t either.

#2 has it right. Trayvon was a ruthless thug, in trouble with the law, suspended from school; his parents had abandoned him, and he thought he could show this cracker a thing or two. But after jumping Zimmerman and bashing his head against the pavement a few times, he was shot dead. 0bama and Big 0prah both had to chime in on this one showing their ignorance. The black leaders would do well to use their influence and resources to educate their race, keep them in school, get off welfare, encourage them not to impregnate their girl friends, encourage them not to shoot defenseless infants in strollers, and encourage them not to beat defenseless old men to death with flashlights.

Martin died because he picked on a person who defend himself.
Why is the fact that Martins girlfriend said on the Piers Morgan show that Martin went after Zimmerman because Martin thought Zimmerman was gay. And where is the Gay communities outrage at someone being attacked because of hate for gay people.
The blacks that are falling for this are being played like a fiddle...unless they are just out for hatred of whites.

OK, let´s talk about traywon´s character. In trouble at home and school. Drugs, guns, gang talk, street fighter and so much more. He decided to jump the man who was following him inst4ead of leaving. I am sure he thought gz was easy pickings. He would beat him up and show him who was the man. Little did he know gz was packing and prepared to defend himself. There was a reason trayvon´s phone was not allowed into evidence. His character was on full display. And what kind of character did the murders of the Aussie and the WW II veteran have? There is evil abound.

It´s not the color, it´s the culture. Unfortunately, a disproportionate number of black people are so far removed from the mainstream of American life that they will fall for any jive race hustler (Jackson, Sharpton, Holder, Obama, Oprah----there´s no end to them) who will prey on their ignorance and fear to keep them down. Interesting how most of the black race hustlers are rich.

The Black community in the USA is the most racist part of America. They practice self-segregation and whine about ´whitey´ not giving them ´their fair share´.

This must stop if America is to survive.

The content of one´s character is often displayed on his or her cell phone or facebook page.
Saint Trayvon was on the wrong track, and his parents were not helping him by turning him loose on the community he was suspended, yet again, from school. He was trouble in H.S., and the school chose to keep law enforcement out of it when they found drugs and stolen property in his locker.
He was destined to die young, but likely at the hands of another black person. And had that happened, the black leaders would have said nuffin.
Theoffspring of Martin Luther King, Jr., are a pack of money loving vultures, often in court over control of MLK assets, including the King Center.

The new civil rights leaders depend upon perpetrating the hoax upon the ignorant and gullible for their political power, their financial well being and their status as "leaders". I doubt MLK would have been able to resist the same ploy had he lived. Just too much at stake.

If today´s black Democrats found a magic lamp their one wish would be that racism would run rampant in order to have the ammunition that would guarantee their power in Washington. It´s pitiful.

Martin III has never had a job. The only thing he knows how to do is take advantage of his name and talk about how the white man is evil. No one dares to question the crud that comes out of his mouth, because his dad has basically been given sainthood.

I bridle somewhat at referring to King as "Dr" given his plagiarism. I also point out that he was a man of the Left--indisputably great but undeniably a leftist. And his comments on Vietnam were uninformed and opportunistic. Like many who rose to an occasion and were cut down by violence, he has become more a talisman than a man. Whenever I hear "Dr. King would have..." I count my change.

Maybe he´s right. Let´s take him at his word. Maybe he´s saying that Trayvon was killed because black people are lawless, vicious thugs, and that no one should expect anything different from them. Maybe he´s acknowledging that we can look at a young black man and assume that he´s a violent criminal. Maybe he´s letting us know, in 2013, that black people are a lost cause. That´s not the message MLK tried to preach originally, but maybe that´s what the civil rights movement has devolved into.

The content of Trayvon´s character would have had him in jail had it ever been treated as it should have!

It wasn´t even brought into the trail, for the most part, and yet that of it which was proved more than enough to show the jury just what a thug he was, and that his actions (attacking Zimmerman) was right in line with who he was and how he conducted himself.

Blacks are only 12% of the US population. Don´t know the stats but seems to me they constitute 80% of domestic news coverage as it relates to a) murders/violent crime, b) income equality and living in poverty, c) single mothers, and d) voter ID rights and stupidity about how vote fraud nullifies their votes.

Yet another unsubstantiated attack upon the American justice system that aims to undermine confidence and inspire more racial division. Those who make such attacks are both black and white. They do not agree with the jury´s verdict. Somehow they think they know what REALLY happened and WHY, even though they were not present at the crime or the trial. They did not sit through the arguments, the evidence, the testimony, the examinations and cross-examinations of witnesses and experts, did not hear the judge´s instructions, did not listen to the closing arguments of both sides and did not participate in the jury´s deliberations. Yet they are convinced they know the truth - that the jury was wrong and George Zimmerman was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

This kind of basic ignorance and contempt for the legal process is irrational and dangerous. It reminds us that we have a large segment of the population for whom ideology trumps common sense, due process, presumption of innocence and personal integrity and respect for the truth. For only a profoundly dishonest person could possibly claim to know more than the Zimmerman jury about the Zimmerman case. These are people whose minds were made up almost at once and who will never change their dogmatic beliefs no matter what happens. If a properly conducted jury trial does not support their personal prejudices, so much the worse for the jury and the legal system itself.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base. The latest cache of previously withheld Clinton documents includes an

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush. Blogress Ann Althouse astutely observes that

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

That evening, the NBC Nightly News allocated 33 seconds to the revelation while neither ABC’s World News nor the CBS Evening News bothered to mention it. Today (Thursday, April 17), Chelsea Clinton, daughter of a President and First Lady belonging to the media’s preferred party, announced at a Clinton Global Initiative event in New York City that she is pregnant – and the networks broke out the baby showers in

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is "hellbent" on passing amnesty legislation, and other GOP leaders are signaling to donors and lobbyists that they also want to pass legislation this Congress, even though attempting to do so would depress the GOP base and create divisions within the party ahead of 2014´s midterm elections that could give Republicans control of Congress. According to the Wall Street Journal, Boehner told donors at a Las Vegas fundraiser in March that he was "hellbent on getting this done this year." After he met with President Barack Obama at the White House in February, Boehner said that

Hillary Clinton´s upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of State, now has a name: Hard Choices. Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used. By another former secretary of State. In 1983, Cyrus Vance, who served as secretary of State

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch. They shouldn’t have been. Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions. It’s not controversial that the Secret Service and the Bureau of Prisons have them. But what about the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” Thursday, turning up the rhetorical heat on the already tense situation at the Nevada cattle operation. “Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Mr. Reid in remarks at a luncheon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which sponsored the event. “… I repeat: What went on up there was domestic terrorism.” The Nevada Democrat was referring to the hundreds of Bundy backers — some armed, some from out of state — who congregated at the ranch last week in

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not
