The Silence of the Lambs

I'd like to believe that everyone wants justice for Trayvon Martin.  His death at the hands of George Zimmerman (in the photo-shopped picture above) is tragic and very possibly criminal.  I hope a thorough investigation is possible, but I'm beginning to have my doubts.  The problem isn't the Federal and State judicial system which is working hard (if belatedly) to provide answers, it's the mob violence being championed by the leaders on the left.

I find what's happening on the "left" side of the political spectrum here in the United States to be upsetting, even distressing.  People I thought shared the values of justice, honesty, fairness, restraint, kindness, cooperation and dialogue have become an American Taliban, fundamentalists demanding everyone hold their narrow minded bigoted views or face certain annihilation.  

That many of these people call themselves "Liberal" is a tragic joke.  A joke that as of today is no longer funny.

These people are a disgrace to liberalism.  They are, in fact, a disgrace to the human race.

The list starts with virtually every so-called journalist and on-air personalities on MSNBC. It extends to the bastions of the liberal blogosphere with The Huffington Post and Daily Kos and flows down stream to the tens of thousands on Twitter and Facebook who are demanding the death of George Zimmerman without benefit of an investigation or a trial.  The New Black Panther Party has placed a ONE MILLION DOLLAR bounty on Zimmerman's head., dead or alive.

You'll find no condemnation or even mild criticism of this action anywhere in the left media or blogosphere.  The same folks who spent weeks condemning Sarah Palin for using "cross hairs" on a political map, don't think the call for vigilante justice against Zimmerman is ever worth a sentence in their blogs.  It isn't worth one minute of their valuable air time on television.

And if Zimmerman is killed, these same so-called liberal pundits will rush to the defense of the perpetrator, blaming the "system" for it's failure to bring swift justice for young Trayvon.

Curiously, these same liberal activists will protest by the thousands outside a prison to protest the execution of a convicted murderer, but they're happy to cheer lead the murder someone who hasn't had the benefit of a trial.

One Twitter user has adopted the name @killzimmerman and spews hate and death threats 24 hours a day.  Twitter, which routinely shuts down accounts for minor infractions of it's terms of use, hasn't touched this account, let alone shut it down.

A Twitter thread using the hashtag #killzimmerman has thousands of entries, most demanding Zimmerman's death.

The media, especially MSNBC are deathly silent.  They not only don't care, they are actively rooting for violence, especially Reverend Al Sharpton

And what I've written here is just the tip of the iceberg.  The coordinated effort to silence all who disagree with them is massive, well funded and frightening. More on that in a future post.
