I am featuring Malisha today. She has a special way of piercing the veil revealing the truth behind it that makes me want to stand-up and cheer.
In this comment at 3:01 am today, she takes on Mark O’Mara’s pitch for money:
O’Mara doesn’t say, “If you believe George Zimmerman and you believe it was self-defense, send money,” he says, “If you would have done what he did.”
Why would anybody believe George if they never met him? “If you would have done what he did…”?
So, would that include:
If you would have thought Trayvon was suspicious because he was walking in the rain.
If you would have thought Trayvon was “up to no good” because he was “just lookin’ about.”
If you would have thought “somethin’ was wrong with him” because he wasn’t an athlete training hard in the rainfall. (Why should anybody walking along have to be an athlete, may I ask?)
If you would have said, “These assholes, they always get away.”
If you would have said, “Fucking punks.”
If you would have gotten out of your vehicle to give chase.
If you would have continued your pursuit after the dispatcher told you, “We don’t need you to do that, OK?”
If you would have answered, “No, man, I don’t have a problem” rather than saying, with your hands in the air to show that you weren’t threatening, “No, man, I don’t have any problem with you, just wanted to check on you because I’m with the Neighborhood Watch Group here and we check out folks we don’t recognize…are you new to this area?”
If you would have failed to take the reasonable step right then if you felt Trayvon was threatening to YOU, that is, stepped BACK three feet or so and drawn your gun, saying: I’m armed, don’t move, the police are on their way.”
If you would have made every single stupid move (or every single aggressive, threatening, thuggish move, if he was doing all this on purpose and not just stupidly) that George would have made that night, resulting in his killing an unarmed teen-ager, and:
IF YOU WOULD HAVE GONE ON HANNITY AND SAID THAT YOU DID NOT REGRET A SINGLE THING YOU DID THAT NIGHT,
Then, by all means, send money. Because if George gets convicted, you will have to live in a world where you realize, to your dismay, that YOU TOO are subject to law and order in this country, that NEITHER GEORGE NOR YOU are not free EITHER to go kill some kid you don’t like and get away with it. So send lots of money. Protect yourself from having that terrible feeling that you’re not FREE to KILL and LIE and DISRESPECT and GET AWAY WITH IT.
Thanks, Malisha for all that you do. Keep speaking out because you speak the truth and your voice is needed in these troubled times.
Pimping the Conservative Treehouse Crazies for Money is Morally and Ethically Reprehensible.
