MSNBC’s reaction to the Zimmerman verdict was an editorial vomit. The network chose Al Sharpton and Melissa Harris-Perry to be among its commentators. Both predictably injected race into the discussion. It’s the only card in either one’s deck.

Al Sharpton’s presence as a commentator is particularly galling. Sharpton operates as part shakedown artist, part con man, and part Hizballah-lite through his National Action Network. He was no bystander in the Martin case. He was among the first to turn the tragedy into a phony referendum on race relations. He is regularly among the first to deploy the terroristic slogan “No Justice, No Peace” when things aren’t going his way. Or when he believes a credible threat of violence is useful to him.

Al Sharpton regularly denounces America as a racist country. But only in “racist” America could Sharpton build a lucrative and influential career in national media on anti-Semitism, a horrendous hoax, lies, smears and a riot that resulted in the deaths of innocent people.

"What are the marks of a sick culture?"

"It is a bad sign when the people of a country stop identifying themselves with the country and start identifying with a group. A racial group. Or a religion. Or a language. Anything, as long as it isn't the whole population."

- Robert Heinlein, Friday, 1982

‘There is (a) class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the N3gro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the N3gro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.’

- Booker T Washington, 1911

The disturbing thing [longer run] is that the present claque of semi-literate, adolescent minded voters who twice elected their half-Black man as the Nation's first Black president is in fact growing into a sizable semi-permanent majority.

This means that our current Obama may very well be the first of a series [off and on] of very left-leaning, socialistic administrations.

So, we need to raise the voting age to the late twenties for National elections along with a stringent English literacy test. [To be exempted from that new requirement are those on active duty in the uniform of our Military Services who are expected to place their lives on the line for our Nation.]

But, the stifling Catch 22 of this pragmatic approach is that it will never be enacted by this growing majority of ill-educated, semi-literate mob-groups.

As a Nation, we simply aren't the same. That is not a compliment to this present "administration".

I got fed up with CNN because the commentators seemed to put in so much of their personal opinions into the reporting. So I got MSNBC to see another point of view!!!! Same story!! Al Sharpton, in particular, should be removed from MSNBC. He presents too much of his personal bias that is too often not based on the truth but just on his own speculations.

The black racialists did not listen to the facts of this case. They were stirred up by the race-baiters and the manipulative media and their only concern was a black ‘child” was killed, by a “white” Hispanic. Do you think they are concerned with the multitude of black children that are being killed on a daily basis in cities around the country, by black thugs? Trayvon Martin is dead because of the actions of Trayvon Martin. This case should have never been brought based on the facts. It was brought on by the Obama Regime race-baiters. George Zimmerman was doing his job as the neighborhood watchman, when he was attacked by Trayvon Martin and had to shoot him to keep from getting killed. What does have relevance is Zimmerman's frame of mind when Trayvon continued to bash Zimmerman's head against the concrete. Zimmerman was in fear of his life and believed Trayvon would kill him.therefore, he has/had the right to defend himself.

I hope Zimmerman sues Sharpton blind.

Al Sharpton has built his career on hate and division. I'm not sure if I can include links here--but if so, take a look at this cartoon at http://drawfortruth.com/2013/07/14/al-sharpton-2/ that shows Al for what he is.

Had to watch last night msnbc for a little bit. Harris-Perry loves to hear herself speak. She makes no sense and loves to pontificate for to long, at which time my mind turns off.

Race relations, at least on a political media level, haven't been this bad since the Civil Rights era. In fact, they really started when Obama was elected. The amount of racial naked hate speech the Dem Party deals in is unprecedented in the modern era. Even mainstream media outlets indulge. The sad lesson is, when you treat a man like a dog long enough, don't be surprised if he starts barking. At that point, which came first, the chicken or Sharpton and Harris-Perry?

MSNBC viewership is reduced to the leftist trolls who take refuge in a bubble of ideological purity. Their basic beliefs cannot withstand the scrutiny of objective critical thought. So they depend on a gang of race baiters and ideologues to feed their intellectual void and make them feel good about themselves.

As far as any civil rights component in the Zimmerman case, the only civil rights component found in the evidence is the persecution of George Zimmerman by a race baiting lynch mob backing a corrupt state prosecutor and a gang of community organizers paid for by our own department of justice. Zimmerman needs to sue on that basis.
