#1 Umm, isn't it illegal to call for and raise money in solicitation of murder?

#2 It depends. Probably not in this case (see Philly poll intimidation case.)

#3 Gee Alan, I dunno - let's ask Eric Holder - I'm sure he'll give us a good legal opinion.

#4 I wouldn't be surprised if Eric Holder's [IN]Justice Department was sponsoring the reward.

#5 The Klan. Just like the old Klan, just under new management. Becoming the enemy they once despised for violence and intimidation. No surprise which big tent party they ultimate identify with. However, the old Klan would have like to have the criminal statistics the New Klan racks up in their own community.

#6 The Race War is coming. My God, I cannot believe the rate at which this country is starting to disintegrate.
I never thought I would see it.

#7 When Eric Holder was asked by Congress why he went lite on the Black Panther voter intimdation action, he told Congress these were "his people". With a tone of "Audacity".
Now People. Let Me Tell You Something.
The reason you question EVERYTHING about a candidate as the President of the United States - everything - even the legitimacy of his own birth certificate is to make sure a gangster a thug a LIAR a DECIEVER does not get in where he can take control of so much power.
This generation screwed it up. Now deal with it.

#10 Might be a mistake for the left to go after a hispanic (with a jewish name) this way, with no facts, just torches and bile. You might rally the black vote and lose the other ethnic enclaves.

#11 I was rather wondering about that, RJ.
Usually Hispanics are identified in the media as just that, and Hispanics are seen in progressive circles, academia, etc as part of the 'People of Color.' The thought is that they too have been discriminated against and so have a common agenda with blacks, asians, etc against 'the Other'.
This is so even as the Census Bureau asks about race and ethnicity separately, so that you do have 'white Hispanics' and 'black Hispanics' (I suppose one could be a 'white Pacific Islander' or a 'black Pacific Islander' if you fill in the little circles on the form in just a certain way).
Yet the NYT has gone out of its way to identify Mr. Zimmerman as a 'white Hispanic'. Is he (I take it) not a card-carrying member of the People of Color?
I have no clear idea what the facts are in the Trayvon Martin case, and I am content to wait for the authorities to release their exhaustive investigation to the public.
But it seems very shortsighted for the progressive community and the media (but I repeat myself) to try and split the People of Color at a time when Champ needs every vote he can get.

#12 We have so many gangs in this country and areas you dare not go if you don't belong. I don't believe the black panthers would dare go into a Hispanic area. This is media hype. They will most likely tear up their own home areas. Food stores and so on. Brothers in color only.
Posted by Dale 2012-03-26 16:03||
#13 I believe the hype was going full bore before white as initially reported became White Hispanic. I'm sure there is an attempt by some to slam on the brakes but it may have gone too far to undo.

#14 I read that the kid busted Zimmerman's nose. Witnesses say Tryvon was on top of Zimmerman beating him up when Trayvon Martin got shot. There sure has been a rush to judgment before the facts have come out. Obama has fanned the flames as much as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. But then what's new.

#17 "Zulu Shabaz"?? Now thats a stage name. ( or a great name for a cheap South Africa red wine)I think he should be introduced to the winger that Fred found in the "Hatching Evil" article.
The only danger is giving these guys too much credit. Democracy and a free for all press (that needs to sell copy) and there you go Wingers Galore. Thankfully Canada is too far below the radar for these high flyers.

#18 Zulu Shabazz: born Paris Lewis in 1968. But that wasn't "edgy". It was his "slave name". Didn't get the chicks

#19 Can't come up with a Zimmerman telegraph zing but it's there somewhere waiting to be discovered.

#20 St. Trayvon ain't looking so good either. Three suspensions from school, possession of stolen goods, maryjane and truancy.

#23 Out in thisaways, we call that there a call for a lynch mob.
Noticed that myself, every pic of Martin was him as a youthful kid, frollocking about.
Heh, if the Mad Dog 20/20 leaves your vision a bit too clear, try the Zulu Shabaz.

#24 Sharpton said he warned the family from the start that anything negative about Trayvon would be dragged out in an effort to make him out to be a "junkie and a thief." He knew that would happen, he said, because it's occurred in every similar case he has ever been involved in.

#27 Thanks Frank. As you've got the same link I had, what did I do wrong?

#28 didn't use the RB linky tool? If you don't, it adds a header that FUBARS it, at least in Firefox. Best to use Fred's tool that looks like a globe with an infinity sign below it.....
not sure what you're using/how you did it....just helping peeps with FF?

#29 Thx. Using FF/Mac, but typed it all myself.
