Conservative pundits who predicted mass rioting would follow a Zimmerman “not guilty” verdict have demonstrated how out of touch they are with understanding the pulse of America. In what could be the worst forecast since Fox News’ political pundit Dick Morris confidently predicted a Romney landslide in 2012, right-wing blowhards who ginned up fears of post-verdict urban race riots, have once again shown they do not have a clue about how ordinary Americans think or act.

Thirty-six hours after the verdict and still no American cities have burned to the ground. The Alex Jones, Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh followers must be so disappointed. Urban riots would have confirmed their paranoia about inherent black criminality, the very same paranoia that enabled George Zimmerman to stalk and kill Trayvon Martin. Riots would have given them a chance to indulge in their fantasies of fighting a race war and unrest would have given them an enhanced license to kill. They could have each become judge, jury and executioner in a Second Amendment dystopia where they could shoot at anything “darker than a paper bag” for sport. Once civil order broke down, they could invoke “Stand your Ground” or self-defense and kill with impunity, knowing full well their murderous intentions could be masked with cries of “self-defense” against black looters and rioters. The only problem was the riots never came.

It was not for lack of effort on the part of the far right though. Alex Jones’ Infowars site posted the dire apocalyptic predictions of ex-Chicago police officer Paul Huebl who proclaimed with near certainty that a “not guilty” verdict would lead to America experiencing its worst race riots ever…

Pat Buchanan opined that “the public mind has been so poisoned that an acquittal of George Zimmerman could ignite a reaction similar to that, 20 years ago, when the Simi Valley jury acquitted the LAPD cops in the Rodney King beating case.”

Yet despite Buchanan’s best efforts to poison the public mind, no such riots materialized. Other pundits, like Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh were less hyperbolic, but they too raised the specter of urban race riots. Apparently the same white conservative stereotypes of black criminality that lead them to believe an unarmed black kid is by default a gangster thug, also lead them to believe that a Zimmerman acquittal would automatically spark vicious race riots, with the default assumption that urban America is populated with gangster thugs just itching for an excuse to destroy their communities. However, as it turns out it was the right-wing armchair revolutionaries who were chomping at the bit for the chance to engage in lawlessness as riots unfolded.

....While the right-wing tries to play off of fears of urban black rage to scare Americans and to justify their barely disguised racist ideology, the best they can offer is a bunch of footage of white people from the Pacific Northwest thousands of miles away from Sanford, Florida acting silly. If the right-wingers want a riot, they will have to start one on their own, because right now the rest of America is not so much interested in rioting, we are more interested in justice.

Napolitano Leaving DHS Under Cloud of Suspicion
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suddenly announced last week that she was resigning her position at the embattled agency in order to take a $750,000-a-year job as president of the University of California system. This will more than triple her salary, which was $200,000 at DHS.
Many believe she abruptly left DHS because of some sordid dealings that are about to be discovered. Her tenure at DHS has been characterized by back-to-back lawsuits and multiple controversies regarding the agencies DHS oversees, which include the TSA, ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services and FEMA.
Napolitano was known in Arizona for her backroom deals and ruthless targeting of conservatives, a pattern she continued as DHS chief...

Have you been listening to that Liberal media in the days following the verdict? They are shamelessly fanning the flames like the Magic Negro does. NPR, ABC, CNN, MSNBC,...the whole ball of Liberal Dung is not backing down from their racist games.
NPR had 2 black racist NAACP lawyers crying about poor little child Trayvon again. They interviewed a NY Times writer(Liberal, of course) who also cried about poor little Saint Trayvon.
Even local TV affiliates are pouring it on taking phony polls to show how Zimmerman is guilty in the court of public opinion - yessiree - right smack in the black demographics of Deetroit Michigan.
It is quickly becoming a feeding frenzy of race baiters, Poverty Pimps and Magic Negro Soldiers out there.
I admire George and hope his lawyers pursue this to an honest end where NBC and the Magic Negro get their azzes burnt.
We're all being manipulated by a liberal media who work on behalf of those who presently sit in power.

There's a reason we're not talking about the IRS and the NSA anymore.

They probably got a memo from on high - "create a distraction, preferably one that creates tension and people are at each other's throats."

That would give Obama and Holder plenty of wiggle room to put time and distance between us and focusing on them being in the hot seat for grossly abusing their power.

Both Obama and Holder are whistling a happy tune while the nation is going crazy. That was their intent. Wouldn't surprise me in the least.

EXCLUSIVE: Fox News Signs George Zimmerman As Host:“Stand Your Ground” Premieres This Fall

Now that the jury has delivered a “not guilty” verdict for teen stalker/killer George Zimmerman, Fox News has taken a bold move to extend the ratings bonanza of the trial into the fall television season.

Sources inside Fox News have confirmed that Zimmerman has agreed to host a nightly crime and social affairs program on the network that is set to premiere in October 2013. The controversial signing is consistent with Fox’s programming philosophy of exploiting the transient publicity of media spectacles by drafting the beneficiaries of inordinate press attention, despite a lack of experience or qualifications – e.g. Sarah Palin.

The preliminary format for the Zimmerman program is said to consist of segments analyzing breaking crime dramas such as murderous spouses, kidnapped sorority girls, celebrity arrests, high-speed police chases, and any stray rumors involving presidential sex scandals. Fox News contributor, and noted racist ex-cop, Mark Fuhrman, will have a regular spot on the panel segment to offer his expertise in undermining criminal prosecutions with racial epithets. In that respect Fuhrman, who famously extolled the virtues of the “N” word, shares common ground with Zimmerman who regards innocent black teenagers walking through his neighborhood as “fucking punks.”

Fox News CEO Roger Ailes welcomed Zimmerman to the network saying “We could not be more excited by having such a strong advocate of law enforcement on our team. George’s unique insight and commitment to safe neighborhoods and the preservation of the Second Amendment will connect with our audience and inspire Americans to stand their ground.” Ailes also said that Zimmerman will have a role on the Fox Nation web site where they specialize in flagrant lies, a skill Zimmerman has already demonstrated a knack for.

Zimmerman’s new colleagues at Fox are also anxious to work with him. Sean Hannity, who gave Zimmerman his first platform on cable TV, praised his keen instincts and predicted that his hair-trigger analysis and spin on reality will surprise many. Bill O’Reilly is looking forward to lunching with Zimmerman at Sylvia’s. And Geraldo Rivera lauded Zimmerman’s critical eye on fashion that he hopes will put an end to the trendy adoption of thug-wear that has resulted in so much unnecessary bloodshed.

The addition of George Zimmerman to the Fox lineup is a good fit to shore up both their editorial mission and their audience appeal. They are already receiving rave reviews from the NRA and the Tea Party. Throughout the trial Fox demonstrated an overt favoritism for Zimmerman and the prospects of his acquittal. Now, with his new assignment, he will make Fox the first and only network to feature a host who has actually snuffed out the life of an innocent American. And the icing on the cake is that the victim was black and almost certainly not a Fox viewer.

He may be free, but he'll be imprisoned by this for life. He is a murderer, he admitted shooting him, no doubt about it. I'm pretty sure he'll kill again. He's got blood lust now and got away with it, the next one will be easier. He's a sick man.
Karma has a way of fixing things.
Lily, please read this.

Zimmerman did not chase down Martin just to find him and shoot him. That would have been murder. Why was Martin's decision to instigate an attack overlooked in your reaction? Doesn't he share any culpability in having made that decision?

Zimmerman said when he was trying to shimmy his body over to the grass to protect it, Martin saw the gun and started to go for it.

So what if that really happened? Can you say with absolute certainty it didn't? And if it did, Trayvon had the advantage and could have easily gotten the gun away from Zimmerman.

Zimmerman getting out of his car may have been a mistake, but it was not a crime. There was no intent on his part to shoot Martin that night. He could not have known Martin was still in the area when he got out of his car to wait for the police.

So why WAS Martin still in the area? And why would Martin scream for help if his only intent was to commit murder?

If someone had come to his rescue, Martin would have been on trial for assault and battery. Would anyone have cared who Martin was then? The fact is no one would have even known his name.

Just FYI...more people are killed with fists than with rifles.

This bizarre fixation you have with silencing the opposition is most concerning.

You do know what happens when the few elite decide what the masses can hear?

If the liberal media were doing its job, Fox would not be such a threat to the underpinnings of overthrowing democracy to replace it with a one-party government-controlled welfare state.

Wise up. You're on the wrong side of the fence. And the wrong side of history. It will not be kind to you.
