This is so sad... The right-wing blogs are out to defend George Zimmermann while painting Trayvon Martin as a non-victim. For the life of me, I cannot understand their supposed logic. They will write, blog and publish propaganda to prove they are the smart ones. It's not only sad, it's PATHETIC! Read this one that I just came across...
Such hypocrits calling themselves THE AMERICAN THINKER and how strange when they do ANYTHING but THINK!
They should be called
THE AMERICAN THINKLESS!
"Trayvon," of course, is Trayvon Martin, the black 17-year-old who was killed two months ago in Florida. "Zimmerman" is George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot him. Referring to Martin by his first name and Zimmerman by his last is just one small tactic in the national media campaign to make Martin's death an
enduring symbol of white racism.

Here's a quote from one of the writers on this blog:
Steven Plaut - americnthinker.com
It is impossible to understand politics in the world today without grasping the fundamental fact that there exist two different lefts. I propose that the two be referred to by everyone as the Stupid Left and the Satanic Left. The two are very different, although they work together. People who are part of the first are simply stupid people. People who are part of the second may in fact be quite shrewd, but are evil and nefarious. There is no third type of leftist.
I will not call these people stupid (even though they are) because stupid isn't strong enough. These people are delusional, they live in a world of hate and will twist the truth to fit into this place of loathing (from whence they came)... I just wished I had a clue as to WHY ordinary people agree with them, against their own best interests? Maybe, just maybe the contributors (say, Koch Brothers, Karl Rover et al) of these right-wingnut blogs are masterminds at INDOCTRINATION. -- YA THINK? thinkingblue!This is so sad...

Trayvon Martin case audio: Screams were not George Zimmerman's, 2 experts say
The voice heard crying for help on a 911 call just before Trayvon Martin was shot to death was not that of George Zimmerman, according to two forensic voice identification experts, the Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday.
Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, told the Sentinel that he used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman.
Zimmerman told police that he screamed for help during his confrontation with Martin, 17. He claims the shooting was self-defense.
Why hasn't George Zimmermann been arrested? It makes no sense AT ALL! As for the screams, how dare this coward (Zimmermann) claim the screams were his? He was the stalker, he was the aggressor and then he (in the eyes of all that is loathsome) becomes the victim? No one should be tried and convicted before their day in court but when will that day become a reality? The longer this drags on the more absurd and wretched it becomes. thinkingblue
Trayvon Martin case: Why hasn't George Zimmerman been arrested?
Why didn’t the Sanford, Fla., police arrest George Zimmerman after he shot Trayvon Martin Feb. 26? That’s a question that today is more relevant than ever amid reports the lead investigator in the case thought Mr. Zimmerman should be charged with manslaughter for his actions.
Trayvon Martin's parents went before a congressional panel and thanked those who turned their 17-year-old son's death into a cry against racial profiling. Martin's parents spoke at a Capitol Hill forum that began with a moment of silence.
The investigator, Chris Serino, was unconvinced by Zimmerman’s assertion that he resorted to deadly force in self-defense, according to ABC News. Mr. Serino filed an affidavit to that effect on the night of the killing.
But Serino’s superiors, in turn, were apparently unconvinced by Serino’s reasoning. They did not take Zimmerman into custody because of two words: “probable cause.”
This story becomes more heart wrenching with each passing day. The boy is gone, I wish we could bring him back but we can bring about closure with justice. WHAT ARE THEY WATING FOR? thinkingblue
Florida Turns ‘Gunshine State’ After Years of Republican Control
EXCERPTS: “The goal of the gun lobby is to make Florida their armed utopia and spread that mentality nationally,” said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
In Tallahassee, the NRA has won battles with business interests, police departments, local governments and pediatricians since 1999, when Republicans won control of the Legislature and the governor’s office. The organization has championed 38 laws since then to expand rights to conceal, possess, display, discharge, sell or transfer firearms, according to state records.
That helped put Florida among the 10 states with the laxest gun laws, according to a 2011 scorecard from the Brady Campaign, which advocates gun control.
While the Sunshine State’s violent crime has decreased, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, gun- related fatalities increased 35 percent from 1999 to 2009, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s double the rate of population growth during that time and seven times greater than the national average.
It’s the Gunshine State,” said Kent Morden, manager at U.S. Pawn & Auto Inc. in Longwood, standing near a case of assault rifles surmounted with a remote-control plastic robot toy. “Everybody’s got one.”
The state of about 19 million has about 6 million gun owners, Hammer said. About 800,000 have concealed-carry permits that allow them to carry hidden firearms, according to Florida Agriculture Department statistics. In 2004, then-Governor Jeb Bush signed bills that blocked police from collecting data on firearm sales at pawnshops and barred lawsuits over cleaning up lead at gun ranges.
Then-Governor Charlie Crist signed a law in 2010 forbidding adoption agencies from considering gun ownership when matching children with prospective parents.
And last year, Republican Governor Rick Scott, an NRA member, approved the so-called “docs versus Glocks” statute. The law prohibits doctors from asking patients whether they have guns. Pediatricians opposed the bill, comparing questions about firearms to asking about using car seats or keeping poisons in the home.
New Gun Law in Florida Might Land Me in Jail!
A law passed by the Florida legislature and likely
to be signed by Republican Governor Rick Scott
would make it a crime for doctors to counsel parents
about gun safety in the home.
It's hard to fathom the reach and power the NRA and its lobbies have. How many children must suffer and die because of this insanity? Why can't something be done to stop the madness? There are many who do not agree with the psychopathic philosophies of the NRA, yet we all must live under their will. WHY? It’s got to be more than just money but unfortunately, money talks the language of oppression and so the tyranny continues. thinkingblue.Trayvon Martin case audio: Screams were not George Zimmerman's, 2 experts say... more
Motto: Trash The Victim - They asked for it. Say What?
The GOP Tea Party blogs are ruthless, and have no shame as they constantly comb the Internet looking for material to use in order to demonize those they feel profound hatred towards. We don't have Andrew Breitbart, any longer but his passing hardly made a dent in softening the bigotry of this group. They are out in force, trying to find evidence that a normal happy teenager, shot dead by a vigilante (who was out to kill something he believed was an abomination to his cozy, warped world of discrimination) was the evil one who deserved assassination. So many of us are outraged and saddened by this horrible event, but there are also many who wish to defend the perpetrator and condemn the victim. This makes visible, the fact that we live in a very sick culture. This is not new; it has been going on for many years. The only new thing here is the so called Tea Party goes by a different trademark today, they use to be called, back in the days of Jim Crow, “KKK” and although Tucker Carlson, Michelle Malkin and their ilk, would never identify themselves as Klu Klux Klan, they sure as hell, adhere to their same bigoted principals. thinkingblue
Bloggers Cherry-Pick From Social Media to Cast Trayvon Martin as a Menace
By ROBERT MACKEY
For the second time in a week, a conservative blog has published excerpts from what it described as a Twitter feed maintained by Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who was shot and killed last month by a neighborhood watch volunteer patrolling a gated community.
The new blog post on the dead teenager’s social media account, which features an image of him making an obscene gesture and quotes from a message that includes an abbreviation for an obscenity, was posted on The Daily Caller, a site founded by Tucker Carlson, a conservative pundit, and Neil Patel, who once worked as an adviser to former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Like the site’s previous post on another Twitter feed apparently maintained by Trayvon Martin, the information published on Thursday seems to have been selected to reinforce the argument that the victim of the fatal shooting was a menacing figure who might plausibly have been mistaken for a criminal. That impression is reinforced by the fact that while the post mentions and links to what appears to be a MySpace account set up by Trayvon Martin in 2009, The Daily Caller’s editors chose not to display any of the many photographs posted there that show him in a far softer light: holding up a birthday cake with his name on it, fishing with his father, dressed in a suit for his prom, looking excited to inspect an aircraft engine.

Questions and more questions in the Trayvon Martin shooting
Meanwhile, a smear campaign against Martin is under way. It's conducted in part by the likes of Michelle Malkin, whose website Twitchy posted a purported photo of Trayvon in gangsta-style pose and Zimmerman in a suit. Twitchy bellyached about supposed media bias in not showing these photos of the men "because they convey a message that no one else wants to take into consideration." Just one problem: the photo of Trayvon wasn't Trayvon. That could have been resolved beforehand with a simple phone call or two, the kind of basic journalism that Malkin often rails about being absent. But presenting the truth wasn't what Twitchy's editors had in mind. On the contrary.
