Repugnantan Conservatard Allen West tweets this little gem..
“We were bored & decided to kill somebody.” 3 black teens shoot white jogger.Who will POTUS identify w/this time? http://bit.ly/14SHmcq
FYI: POTUS means President of the United States.
This is the story he is referring to:
2 teens charged with murdering Australian baseball player just because they were “bored”
I’ll destroy this in sequential order.
#1. 2 Black teens and 1 White teen. White teen says in an open court, “I pulled the trigger.”
“A third, age 17, was accused of being an accessory after the fact and with driving a vehicle while a weapon was discharged. He said in open court “I pulled the trigger,” but the judge directed him to remain quiet and said Tuesday was not the day to discuss the facts of the case.” – Source: The Daily News
There goes that reverse racism angle. NEXT.
#2. Both Black people & White people UNIVERSALLY condemn ALL THREE TEENS.
Most civilized and rational people don’t endorse killing people who are not aggressing against you and just minding their own business. If Conservatards and Repugnantans are going to draw a Trayvon Martin similarity to this case the only common thread would be just that. An unarmed innocent person, minding their own business, was shot and killed by an armed person. Do they really want to go down that slippery slope since their main talking point is that George Zimmerman was the victim? NEXT.
#3. What exactly would POTUS identify with?
“I remember that time I went jogging and these teenagers shot and killed me(?)” Huh? The reason POTUS touched on the Trayvon Martin issue in the first place is because he is a Black man in America and as one has been racially profiled and followed simply by virtue of him being Black. He can also provide some insight into why the Black community is particularly sensitive to issues involving racial profiling and discrimination. To my knowledge POTUS is not White, if he was you wouldn’t have a problem with him, and has not been shot and killed. So…what exactly would he be identifying with or providing insight into the white community on other than what 99% of both Black & White people say? Both Black & White people say this was a horrendous crime and all parties involved should go to JAIL. NEXT.
#4. What is the parallel you are attempting to draw with this case to the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case?
“It is an outrage those three teens that shot that man are still free and haven’t been arrested!”
(Oh wait…they were arrested immediately)
“Can you believe how Black people are celebrating the man’s death and calling his killers heroes?”
(Oh wait, I can’t find evidence of ONE Black person applauding the death of the man or calling his killers heroes.)
“Where are Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson?”
(Oh wait…when they came out for Trayvon Martin I called them race baiters and told them to go away. Oops)
“How in God’s name could they have given the gun those teens used to kill that man back to them?”
(Oh wait…that didn’t happen. Ummm…Uhhh…move along now….nothing to see here.)
