Where Liberalism Is Alive and Well!

The Justice Department Did Not “Organize” Protests In Sanford Florida As Idiots Claim!

Only the crazy, racist, brain dead people of the right-wing propaganda machine could turn a Department of Justice unit called the Community Relations Service into a nefarious group and claim they helped “organize” the protests in Sanford Florida, following the national exposure of the tragic death of Trayvon Martin.  The CRS is tasked with preventing tensions in racially charged situations, the opposite of what the idiots are claiming.

It fits nicely in their up is down, down is up world, doesn’t it?

I won’t link to any of the many posts flying around the wingnutosphere claiming that this Community Relations Service helped to “organize” anti-Zimmerman protests. The following is what the Community Relations Service actually does, via Media Matters for America…

The Community Relations Service is the Department’s “peacemaker” for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin. Created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, CRS is the only Federal agency dedicated to assist State and local units of government, private and public organizations, and community groups with preventing and resolving racial and ethnic tensions, incidents, and civil disorders, and in restoring racial stability and harmony.

[...]

For more than 45 years, CRS has been asked to provide its experienced mediators to help local communities resolve conflicts and disturbances relating to race, color, or national origin. Each year CRS’ highly skilled conciliators bring hundreds of community-wide conflicts to peaceful closure across America and its territories.

I imagine that the wingnuts really don’t want tensions to be eased, they hope to see cops bring out the riot gear and beat some people down for their sick pleasure. They really want there to be riots, you can tell by all the stories that have been written fantasizing about it. Don’t be surprised if they bus in instigators to cause disturbances, that is how they roll.

The overt racism within the right-wing media is bubbling over. Since the election of President Obama, the backlash from racists has been obvious to anyone not mired in that hateful, ignorant world. The Trayvon Martin trial has brought many of them out of their shells. They are incapable of seeing Trayvon as a living, breathing, 17 year old kid with college aspirations and a caring heart, but rather as a “thug” or any of the adjectives that George Zimmerman was recorded calling young Trayvon.

When anyone even starts to justify the killing of Trayvon, an innocent young man walking home from the store, I cut them right off. In my mind, anyone capable of justifying the murder of Trayvon Martin is a sick motherfucker and needs help. There is absolutely no justification for murdering Trayvon Martin in cold blood, NONE!

The only person responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death is George Zimmerman, full stop.

  1. The right is into this case because it symbolizes the problem with concealed weapons and especially the ‘stand your ground’ laws. I have personally run across a couple Zimmermans and had to NOT stand my ground because I was thinking ‘this loser is probably packing.’

  2. The overt bigot Pat Buchanan (one of Nixon’s architects for the Southern Strategy to turn the old Confederate South into a GOP voting bloc) chimes in with Sean Hannity to blame Holder and Obama for pushing for conviction of George Zimmerman. Remember it was Hannity who Zimmerman ran to for a national interview. Right-wingers and gun lovers are lining up behind Zimmerman in most cases.

    While rabble-rousers like Bill O’Reilly seem to be wishing for race riots to follow this trial, Rush Limbaugh blames “the media” (I guess only the LIBERAL media) for wanting such violence.

    I see conservative columnist Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post is blaming “the media” for making this trial about RACE. She favors not having TV cameras in court rooms:

  3. Jim,

    It’s nice to know that there are some things we agree on. Riots are a bad thing no matter who starts them or what the reasons are.

  4. Where are all those savage African-Americans rioting that Fox News has been predicting would happen if Zimmerman was aquitted?

    • Hi Grant,

      Why can’t we just be glad there was no violence? It seems to me that no riots were the best outcome we could have hoped for. Why do so many people wish for violence? That is so illogical to me.

  5. Reblogged this on AMERICAN LIBERAL TIMES and commented:
    In case any of my readers have seen some of the bull crap claims on some of the right-tard Obama Hater blogs about this – – I am very pleased to have found a rational explanation of what really happened! It does me good when someone exposes the lies of the intransigent Right and I think this article on “Extreme Liberal” more than fills the bill. (Comment provided by John at AMERICAN LIBERAL TIMES.)

  6. I was leaning towards the GOP side but reading more and more Liberal Blogs and posts, I am starting to lean that way. A new employee of mine turned me on to NPR and I must say…im hooked!!!
