"Crucify Him! Crucify Him!" ---A Mockery Then; A Mockery Now Post Zimmerman Trial

"Guess who is as white as Zimmerman? Yep, Barack Obama." Tweet by John Nolte
"George Zimmerman is as Hispanic as Barack Obama is Black." Tweet by same author

  • But they cried again, saying Crucify Him! Crucify Him! And he (Pilate) said to them the third time: Why, what evil has this man done? I find no cause of death in him.

  • I'm not in any way, shape or form attempting to equate Zimmerman with Jesus. But the behavior of many in the protesters this past week and the multitude of comments on social media (including death threats to Zimmerman and his family) do remind me of the crowds over 2000 years ago demanding Jesus be executed. Today we're witnessing similar flagrant disregard for law and justice.
  • But what makes all of this even more disturbing, it was very clear from the onset, race played absolutely no role in this trial. In fact, even the FBI's own investigation of Zimmerman found zero evidence of racism on his part.

  • The pattern with the race baiters is very clear. It starts with an incident  such as this one or  the hoaxes perpetuated by the likes of Al Sharpton and company. These incidents usually have something to do with race---or at least perceived to have something to do with race. Then along with their enablers in the media, these thugs begin their muckraking, vilification and slander campaigns. Those targeted are at the mercy of the bullies and thugs. It's a tough position to find oneself in. After all, when the media goes after you---while coordinating with a plethora of "activists"---very few people can survive that type of kangaroo style of justice. History is replete with the victims of this type of injustice (Just ask Steven Pagones, the former Assistant DA of Duchess County in NY. He was one of the people falsely accused of rape by Tawana Brawley who was empowered by Al Sharpton among others. He had to take Sharpton and several others to court to get his good name back. Fortunately, he won that defamation suit. You can read more about Sharpton's thug background in my previous post, Al Sharpton: Race Baiting For Dollars).
  • In addition to the mobs and thugs, Zimmerman was also faced with dealing with the government. It was reported that the Justice Department---Eric Holder's crew---had financed many of the anti-Zimmerman protests (Judicial Watch). The Justice Department also held a conference call with the NAACP and other progressive groups and promised to create an email address to solicit tips on Zimmerman (NY Post).
  • It was becoming clear---whatever the outcome of the trial---the hammer of the government was going to come down hard on Zimmerman.  That's why it should also come as no surprise to anyone that Pres. Obama placed himself directly into the controversy---because he supported the actions of Sharpton and Holder.
  • In 2009, Rahm Emanuel (then Obama's chief advisor now mayor of that wonderful crime ridden metropolis, Chicago) said, "never let a serious crisis go to waste." Michael Goodwin of the NY Post amended that to: "Never let a serious crisis go to waste, even if you have to manufacture one." So just like Pontius Pilate---many have.
