George Zimmerman and DMX in talks for a boxing match

I really do not understand why George Zimmerman continues to want publicity after the Trayvon Martin incident. He was rightfully acquitted and should go lay low, instead Zimmerman keeps his name in the public eye and has signed up for celebrity boxing. Talks are now underway with retired 90’s Rap legend DMX to set up a fight.

George Zimmerman is not a celebrity.

But Trayvon Martin‘s killer has apparently signed on to fight rapper DMX in a “celebrity boxing match,” according to TMZ.

Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman confirmed to the gossip site that the “Party Up” rapper, 43, was picked out of “over 15,000” applicants to go against Zimmerman, 30.

“I am going to beat the living f–k out him,” DMX said, according to TMZ. “I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f–k him right up.”

[…]

Zimmerman reportedly came up with the idea for a boxing match himself and has been “training for months.” He previously told RadarOnline that boxing has been his hobby — even before the “incident,” as he called it.

What is George Zimmerman thinking? He obviously wants to use his name to make a niche for himself within the Popular Culture. But Zimmerman will never be accepted due to Progressive dominance of the pop culture. George should have left the country and hide in peru.

MSNBC has mastered the art of making unracial things racial

Let’s see, you have race hustler Al Sharpton, Chris “tingles” Matthews, Rachel “Maddog” Maddow,  Toure, the incredibly nasty Martin Bashir, and rageaholic Lawrence O’Donnell – all of whom are either demagogues, wannabes, alcoholics and malignant narcissists who condescend to every “person of color” (God I hate that term) because at heart they are cowards.

by Jonah Goldberg

Why do they seem so determined to also make it racial?”

So asks Joy-Ann Reid, the managing editor of TheGrio, a web magazine owned by NBC News whose mission is to “focus on news and events that have a unique interest and/or pronounced impact within the national African Americans audience.” The “they” in question are conservatives and journalists asking, among other things, why President Obama hasn’t inserted himself into a new criminal-justice case the way he did in the Trayvon Martin tragedy.

The irony-impaired Reid was asking that question about a heinous murder in Oklahoma, where, according to police, an Australian student was shot by a black youth with the help of two friends (one of whom was white) “for the fun of it.” Police allege that the bored teens spotted Christopher Lane jogging and decided to follow him and shoot him in the back.

Reid asked the question while guest-hosting a show on MSNBC, a network that has mastered the art of making unracial things racial. Just two days earlier, Reid had insisted that there’s a “neoconfederate thread” running through the gun-rights movement. Whatever that means.

Then there’s MSNBC fixture Chris Matthews, who insists, with considerable regularity, that any criticism of Barack Obama is driven by “white supremacy.” Critics of Obamacare, Matthews claims, believe that “the white race must rule.”

Another MSNBC host, Martin Bashir, recently insisted that outrage over the ongoing scandal at the IRS is really nothing more than coded racism. The IRS is the new “N-word,” according to Bashir. “So this afternoon, we welcomed the latest phrase in the lexicon of Republican attacks on this president: the IRS. [………………]”

Lawrence O’Donnell, another MSNBC host, assured viewers during the Republican National Convention last summer that Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s joke about Obama’s playing too much golf was really a deliberate racist dog whistle. “These people,” O’Donnell insisted, “reach for every single possible racial double entendre they can find in every one of these speeches.”

And that of course leaves out Al Sharpton, an MSNBC host who can best be understood as the racial equivalent of an ambulance chaser.

Against this backdrop, Reid’s asking why anyone would bring race into the discussion is a bit like a pornographer asking, “Why make this about sex?”

But let’s get back to her question. One high-minded response might be that conservatives are bringing race into this discussion because they are simply doing what has been asked of them by Reid and countless others, including the president and the attorney general: They’re trying to have that coveted “national conversation about race.” Of course, the conversation that the conversation-mongers want is entirely one-sided; they only want to talk about why their ideological enemies are racists.  [……….]

But the truth is, that’s not what is going on. To the extent that people are bringing up race it is to turn the tables, rhetorically at least, on people like Reid and her MSNBC colleagues for their relentless — some might say shameless and disgusting — effort to exploit the George Zimmerman murder trial.

Recall that there was no evidence Zimmerman was motivated by racial animus, a fact so inconvenient to NBC News that it unethically edited Zimmerman’s 911 call to make it sound like he was racist. (NBC later apologized and Zimmerman is rightly suing.) This inconvenient truth was also why numerous news outlets insisted on describing Zimmerman as a “white Hispanic” — to bend the facts to fit the preferred narrative.

Australian and British newspapers — which do not care about imposing a monolithic liberal narrative on race — are reporting that Lane’s alleged murderers may have been driven by motives other than boredom. But even if the initial reporting proves accurate and these thugs were just trying to break the monotony of the dog days of summer, the lesson for the MSNBC crowd should be the same.

From Obama down to his cheerleaders in the press, liberals have declared unremitting war on their ideological opponents, cynically polarizing the country along racial — and, when possible, gender — lines. They, not conservatives, have been the ones dragging race into any and every political dispute they can. This disgusting strategy has worked well for them, galvanizing minority voters and tarring the Republican brand. I don’t particularly welcome the fact that conservatives are fighting fire with fire, but you can hardly blame them given how liberals like Reid have been asking for it for so long.

Trayvon Martin mural in Florida State Capitol

A Vietnamese War refugee turned Miami area Hipster artist named Huong unveiled a mural dedicated to Trayvon Martin in the Florida State Capitol. The mural depicts George Zimmerman as if he was scarface shooting off some semi-auto Uzi looking weapon.

ORLANDO, Fla. -An eye-grabbing mural showing a picture of a man shooting a likeness of Trayvon Martin was unveiled Friday at the state Capitol.

The message of the 100-foot mural, created by Miami artist Huong, is “We are all Trayvon Martin.”

The mural shows a man who looks similar to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch leader who shot and killed Martin in February 2012 and was later acquitted in the teen’s death, shooting a person wearing a hoodie.  There’s a mirror in the mural where Martin’s face would be so visitors can see themselves as the teen.

Trayvon Martine Mural

This mural would be so funny if it wasn’t so sad. This reinforces the image of George Zimmerman as some crazy Scarface like killer just shooting Trayvon Martin for pleasure. It’s even more pathetic that this propaganda piece was drawn by a refugee from Communist Vietnam!

Update: This is what the Justice for Trayvon movement think George Zimmerman did.

Rolling Stones not boycotting Florida

The Conservative blogosphere was spreading the rumor that the Rolling Stones were going to boycott Florida over the Zimmerman acquital. Heysoos and Speranza called BS on this pointing out that the Stones are Conservatives/Tories. It turns out it was a flase rumor.

Mother Jones reached out to representatives for some of the artists, who reported that they were unaware of the reported boycott movement.

A source with knowledge of the situation told the magazine that Rihanna was not joining the reported boycott, and a spokesperson for the Rolling Stones said “nobody’s heard anything about this.”

People need to vet stories better.
