The verdict in the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman trial will soon be in...and just to make sure that the community is properly "organized" to take appropriate action, the New Black Panthers have come to Sanford, Florida in force - ready to show their extreme displeasure if the verdict doesn't meet their racial preferences.
Put another way, they're spoiling for a race riot - and perhaps the first such riot actually encouraged by the president of the United States, the Department of Justice, and the mainstream media.
Having learned nothing after declaring White cops to be "stupid" with a history of racism prior to his infamous beer summit, Barack Hussein Obama upped racial tensions by saying "if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." Certainly, it seems that Trayvon also shared his surrogate "dad's" dope-smoking habit.
Then the media re-edited 9-1-1 tapes to make Zimmerman look like a racist, the DOJ spent taxpayer funds to organize demonstrations against Zimmerman, and a nice racial bonfire was stoked - because it's exactly what this president and his administration want.
Let's be clear: this case should never have been about race. It's about two men on a dark and rainy night, neither of whom knew the intent of the other, who got into an intense fight which ended badly. None of us really knows what happened - but the evidence presented strongly supports George Zimmerman's contention that he was attacked and beaten before firing his gun. If we were jurors, we'd acquit Zimmerman - sadly, solemnly, and based solely on the evidence.
That may happen (despite the wild anti-defendant shenanigans of the presiding judge, who has virtually assured grounds for appeal if Zimmerman is convicted of anything). But if Zimmerman is acquitted, there have been explicit threats of anti-White violence to come. And virtually no "official" voices from Washington which discourage it. And why would they? What could be more conveniently distracting from the failures of Obamacare, Benghazi, Egypt, the IRS, Fast & Furious, and unemployment than roaring flames and blood in the streets?
Oddly, the Left's enthusiasm for the idea that black Americans will riot is an extreme case of racial stereotyping which assumes that certain people are likely to commit violent criminal acts based solely on their ethnicity.
The same assumption that they've accused George Zimmerman of making.

By now we've all heard that Michelle Obama has compared her life in the Whitehouse to a life in prison - albeit a "nice" prison. You know, the kind where you have dozens of personal assistants, a full-time dogwalker, gourmet meals, celebrity parties, and multi-million dollar vacations approximately every three weeks.
But can all of these trappings of wealth satisfactorily take the place of the essential freedoms to go where you want to go, and do what you want to do, whenever you like?
Oh, hell yes they can!
Do any of us believe that Michelle would really rather be out there digging in her damned yam garden, homeschooling Sashimi and Malaria, or perhaps doing volunteer "public service" work at a Planned Parenthood clinic emptying the blenders into the toilets? Hope n' Change thinks not.
But outside of the nearly biblical miracle of turning wealth into whine, Mrs. Obama does make a good point about the importance of freedom...which is our not-too-subtle segue into announcing that Hope n' Change is probably going to take most of the week off.
And we say "probably" because we never know when our muse is going to elbow us painfully in the ribs and point at whatever's on the news and then shriek like a banshee until we actually create something. As muses go, ours is sort of like Johnny Optimism's psychotic helper monkey.
We wish we could say that this was simply a short bit of vacation but the truth is that the time is needed to work on some personal, health-related matters in the Jarlsberg household. Matters which would be singularly easier if we had dozens of personal assistants, instead of just paying for them (and getting no "thank you" from this America-hating harridan).
The comments section remains open, so the party is still on. It's just more of a "BYOB" sort of affair this week! Sincere thanks for your understanding. -Stilton
