That’s because their outrage is only a tactic in the liberal war against Conservatives. Liberals are not really upset about Trayvon Martin’s death. They only view Martin as a prop in their kabuki theater. To be moral one must have consistent values. But liberals have selective values.
George Zimmerman is a “white Hispanic” who carried a gun and shot a black man. Thus he is an evil racist. If the liberal media even bothered to cover this story, which they won’t, they would designate Alton Hayes as a “frustrated youth who has no other means of expressing his legitimate grievances in a racist society.” It’s the same progressive thinking that justifies homicide bombings against Jews in Israel.
By the way, if George Zimmerman is a white Hispanic doesn’t it follow that Barack Obama is a white black man?
Mr. Avrech is referencing this story… a story that means next to nothing to those so moved by the Martin/Zimmerman tragedy:
Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.
Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”
The two allegedly rifled through the victim’s pockets, then threw him to the ground and punched him “numerous times” in the head and back before running away, police said. Hayes and the boy are black; the victim is white.
After being arrested, Hayes told police he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up because he was white, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said, citing court records.
You can’t help but wonder what effect President Obama’s comments on Trayvon Martin’s death had on this thug.
Neither can you help but wonder what effect Obama might have if he were to step in and attempt to extinguish the racial flames he helped fan.
Perhaps, given that Obama is half white, he could now comment on how the son he never had might’ve looked like this victim.
But we know that won’t happen.
Obama believes firmly that he benefits from all this. As do the race pimps and the race baiters.
They know the great number of gullible and easily led who succumb to emotion and misguided guilt rather than facts and truth and so will do what they can to take advantage of them.
A pox on them all.
