Good morning to all of our friends:
Crane has a post up about a pregnancy disaster in jail and I have a post about the Supremacy Clause trumping the Nullification Doctrine, which is quite popular with state’s-rights and 10th Amendment enthusiasts. This is the same crowd racist crowd that has supported and continues to support George Zimmerman. They want to re-fight the civil war to reestablish white supremacy and segregation and legitimize slavery through imprisonment and debt.
I think this group is far more dangerous to our collective peace and security than Muslim terrorists.
I am featuring Malisha’s comment this morning because I think she nailed why so many powerful and influential people decided to demonize a child and rig the outcome for George Zimmerman
I think we actually DO know the truth, but up until this very morning I had not put it into a sentence. The sentence it came to me through was Serino’s sentence when he began to gently — ever so minutely and shyly, like a little girl wondering, with her thumb in her mouth, if she could ask the regal old woman for a cookie — question Fogen’s story. Serino said, mid-sentence, after saying that Trayvon Martin was not doing anything wrong, “You’re still the good guy here.”
Those (and now, the individuals included in “those” is legion) who worked hard to exonerate Fogen after he murdered Trayvon Martin were essentially saying:
Fogen has to still be the good guy here.
No matter WHAT he did,
No matter WHAT WHOPPERS he told,
No matter how innocent and undeserving Trayvon was;
No matter what the facts show,
No matter what the forensics reveal,
No matter what the law says,
No matter what his intentions were,
No matter how many wrongs he committed,
No matter what the morality issues are,
No matter what (including but not limited to ANYTHING)
George Zimmerman has got to stay THE GOOD GUY here.
… why? …
Because if he is NOT,
A white guy went out hunting and chased down an anonymous Black kid he picked and targeted like game in a forest,
and he chased him
and he scared him
and he killed him
and there is no excuse.
And he did it because he knew he could get away with it.
And he DID get away with it.
If a theorem is true, the contrapositive is true.
If a white guy is a good guy,
then he is right to target and kill a Black and blame the Black.
If he is NOT right
(to target and kill a Black and blame the Black)
then he is not a good guy.
Since this case started with everyone in power saying:
HE IS STILL THE GOOD GUY,
Then he had to be NOT GUILTY of any crime
because it HAD to be that what he did was right.
OtherWISE, all the wrongs the white South has committed
would make them NOT the good guys any more.
And Rick Scott would not put up with that.
Serino gave us the verdict in the very beginning:
“YOU’RE STILL THE GOOD GUY HERE.”
Let us know your thoughts on this matter and if you believe Michael Dunn’s prosecution and trial will be rigged in his favor for the same reason.
