Barack Obama, our next President

Funny how the truth keeps coming back to haunt you when you try to hide it.
You ought to be pooped by scouring around so early looking for FauxNews crap to post. You should have checked Charles Grassley and his tepid moves to help Christine O'Donnell use the 'tax scandal' to try and revive interest in her wreck of a political career. "Former US Senate Candidate Christine O'Donnell revealed she has learned that her taxes were illegally tampered with."

Why the Right Cheers Zimmerman Verdict

In the right-wing mind, Trayvon Martin serves as a proxy for Barack Obama.

The killing of an unarmed teenage boy isn't something you'd expect to be political. You would certainly never expect it to inspire gleeful adulation from any American of supposedly "good conscience." But it appears that some Republicans -- and prominent conservative talking heads in particular -- have developed a metastasizing form of "Obama Derangement Syndrome" in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal for the murder of Trayvon Martin, such that Trayvon has become an object of their putrid ridicule and unapologetic racist innuendo.

What is most curious about the reactions to the Zimmerman acquittal this week is how easily, in these conservatives' minds, Trayvon serves as a proxy for Barack Obama. For, you see, what conservatives have wanted all along was to destroy the personage and legacy of this first African-American president -- for fear that his ascendance would signal a shift in the inequitable racial power dynamics that exist throughout American society.

They failed to make Obama a "one-term president" and have faltered in their incessant calls for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to resign. The likes of radio host Rush Limbaugh and musician Ted Nugent appear to long for a golden age in which blacks "had no rights which the white man was bound to respect." Zimmerman's fatal actions against Trayvon provide a perfect metaphor for their sentiments. They see in this victim -- whose life President Obama respected and elevated when he said, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon" -- a Barack of whom they could actually dispose. Trayvon by proxy becomes the Obama they can dispatch with impunity. All the racially motivated disrespect of and disregard for President Obama is, for the moment at least, displaced upon this innocent black boy.

Take a look at what we have been forced to witness this week: Limbaugh, the master race-baiter, explicitly tied the verdict to partisan politics, suggesting that Zimmerman's acquittal was, somehow, a win for conservatives. According to the radio jockey, the verdict served as an "interruption in a string of victory after victory" for liberals. He begrudged how rarely Democrats lose anymore, citing Obama's election and re-election, judicial and legislative wins on marriage equality and universal health care. It was here, as MSNBC's Alex Wagner pointed out, that Limbaugh became the first to "put a killer's acquittal on par with historic progress." She continued, "His comparison was telling, as much as it was reprehensible: Limbaugh put a spotlight on the partisan lines that cross-hash the death of Trayvon Martin. His killing and Zimmerman's exoneration have now officially entered the conservative arsenal as weapons to be deployed."

....And then there was this: Just a day after declaring the verdict a victory -- and in response to an interview of Trayvon's friend Rachel Jeantel -- Limbaugh gleefully told his audience he's now free to use the n-word, as long as he adds an "a" at the end. His mocking tone and callous indifference to Trayvon's life exposes why some have chosen to see Zimmerman's acquittal as a personal political win: because this is the kind of validation and affirmation they've been seeking since Jan. 20, 2009.

It is a modern-day lynching party. And conservatives are smiling.

actually that is in Chicago. If you ran over a big black kid in Florida they would investigate. In Chicago it happens every day. Over 90% of killings by anything are never solved. Democrats do not care.

No one thought about a proxy until O'bama stated Traygone was his illegitimate son. Stupid President O'bama gets involved with state affairs. And yet his own state is the murder capital, the heroin highway, and the Cartel gate way. O'bama should do something in Chicago, shouldn't he? instead he picks on a Mexican protecting himself. O'bama hates Mexicans.

How Zimmerman’s Colorblind Trial Helps the Justice Dept.’s Case

Veteran civil rights attorneys and advocates are convinced that enough evidence of wrongdoing remains from the George Zimmerman case to allow the U.S. Department of Justice to file additional charges against Trayvon Martin’s killer.* Over a million people have signed an NAACP petition in agreement. The Justice Department has responded by reopening the investigation they started early last year, when the Sanford police still were figuring out for weeks if they would even arrest Zimmerman.

“I am concerned about this case and as we confirmed last spring, the Justice Department has an open investigation into it,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told the NAACP at their national convention in Orlando yesterday.“While that inquiry is ongoing, I can promise that the Department of Justice will consider all available information before determining what action to take.”

Civil rights division attorneys in the Justice Department are working with the FBI to evaluate the Zimmerman case above and beyond what was argued in state court. There are two main differences between this federal investigation and the state’s: One, the federal government has broader resources and authority to examine everything that went wrong in the Zimmerman case; and, two, unlike the state’s prosecution, they have no reason to leave race out of it.

Actually, the Justice Department’s intervention is made possible by the state trial’s racial disappearing act. The judge presiding over the Zimmerman trial barred racial profiling evidence from arguments, and the prosecution didn’t bother bringing it up. The jury was instructed to rule based exclusively on the evidence before them, and that evidence made no reference to the idea that Zimmerman may have followed Martin because he was black.

“Race was clearly the centerpiece of the case,” Vincent Southerland, senior counsel for NAACP Legal Defense Fund, told me in a phone interview.“It was the reason for the encounter [between Zimmerman and Martin] in the first place and it’s the reason Zimmerman thought [Martin] was a criminal from the moment he laid eyes on him.”

But local and state officials aren’t built for these kinds of racial investigations; the Justice Department is.

Lewis Black: New York City is better than Texas because ‘F*ck you, Texas’
Listen, Texas,” he said,“trying to steal jobs from Illinois and California is one thing, but you’re going to try to trash-talk about New York? Not on my watch.”
Vowing to “fight fire with fire,” Black rolled his own ad, in which he said in voice-over,“This is New York City, the city that never sleeps. People come here from all over the world, for the freedom to live as they choose, for the variety of cultures, but most of all, for the fact that it’s not Texas.”
“Fuck you, Texas!” New Yorkers gleefully shout at the video’s climax, in a multitude of languages.
“‘Don’t mess with Texas?’” Black mocked.“Don’t fuck with New York.”

Illinois is a joke in itself. Chicago= The next Detroit. There is no way out for the people there except to leave. Liberalism has taken over. California may as well be given back to Mexico and New York? they can have the Untied Nations as their capitol. Democrat liberal bastions of hell all the states you mentioned.
