Those of you who followed the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case will probably be outraged by this distortion of the truth.

The fact they are lying and distorting the facts past all recognition is indeed infuriating. The fact there are huge numbers of slow witted dummies (who vote) that will fall for it is scary.

Could there be any LESS truth in that?

I used to listen to all you right wing whack jobs talking about the fall of America with a bit of a smirk on my face. But lately I'm getting real uneasy with what I see on the news. Case in point: 34% say First Amendment goes too far in protecting rights
More than a third of Americans think the Constitution provides too many rights! :eek6
Wish I'd listened to you guys a few years earlier. I'm starting to think it's way past time to start stockpiling food, ammo, and digging a hole.

If I was George Zimmerman I would have my lawyers all over this. Outrageously direct and defamatory portrayal. We need some deep pockets to pay for an ad with TM hiding, while calling GZ a cracker and jumping out to confront GZ as it really happened. If I won the lottery I would do it!

Idiots...
Now you can provoke a fight, and if losing that fight, kill the person you attacked.
Nope. Self-defense protections fall apart if you started it......

Idiotic video as well. The end text states
Our laws should protect victims, not create more.
I completely agree with that. Unfortunately, too often thse days, criminals literally get away with murder, or get light sentences for robbery, sexual assault, etc. Then they are back out on the streets to commit the same crimes again. So where is that protection for the victims the video wants????

As I said. Idiots. :banghead:

Following up on my earlier post and getting back on topic, I used to think that MOST Americans held dear those liberties protected by the Bill of Rights. The PIA (Public Indoctrination Ad) mentioned above is an obvious attack on the "natural right of self defense," recognized at least as far back as the English Bill of Rights from 1869. I'm appalled at the number of Americans who no longer seem to believe that "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing," and that Zimmerman should have stayed in his truck rather than confront the perpetrators of the increasing crime in his neighborhood.
I always knew there would be some people who would attempt to villainize the man who stood up against evil while praising the drug using thug who attacked him. I just thought it would be a small number, not a third or more. How long until it's more than half?
Scuse me. I'll be in the back yard, digging a hole.

EDIT: English Bill of Rights dates from 1689, not 1869 as I dyslexically typed.

I think you're underestimating the bad (or overestimating the good). Depends on how you define things. I'd say the majority, possibly a large majority, are collectivists at heart (though they don't understand what that means). That doesn't necessarily make them bad or evil, but it does make them useful idiots for the left.

So it would appear that many villages are missing their idiots.
If the 2nd admendment only applies to muskets and muzzle-loaders, then the 1st admentment must apply only to the spoken or printed word. Printing must be done on hand presses, news stories must be written in longhand, no keyboards or electric processes may be used.

I never heard it put as "shoot first". That is probably the worse spin yet.

I can't watch any more of those leftist trash videos; just the words on the page link in the OP were enough to severely irritate me. Its "newspeak" straight out of Orwell's novel "1984". Its THEY that are disregarding history and the natural rights of human beings. "Imagine a future free from gun violence". The people who put that up KNOW they are telling a utopian lie; those that believe it are a few eggs shy of a dozen.

Here is a link to the Wiki article on that organization. See who all are members. A couple might surprise you.

Somehow, they skipped over the part where Mr. Martin snuck up on George Zimmerman, cold-cocked him, jumped on top of him and started beating his head into the concrete.

This is disgusting....there has got to be something we can do to combat this. This is the kind of stuff that show as a demonstration to the contrary when people argue about how human civilization has "progressed". If that were even close to being true, there would be no need for such a blatant misrepresentation of fact, yet it happens everyday.
