George Zimmerman

I’ve not followed the Zimmerman case closely, but the media appears to have stirred things up:

An ideology-based, media-driven false narrative that has distorted a tragedy into a racist outrage. This narrative has transformed Zimmerman, a man of racially mixed heritage that included white, Hispanic and black roots (a grandmother who helped raise him had an Afro-Peruvian father), into an honorary white male steeped in white privilege. It has cast him as a virulent racist even though he once had a black business partner, mentored African-American kids, lived in a neighborhood about 20 percent black, and participated in complaints about a white police lieutenant’s son getting away with beating a homeless black man.  Read on for multiple examples

As did the Justice Department:

A little-known unit of the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Community Relations Service (CRS), was deployed to Sanford, FL, following the Trayvon Martin shooting to help organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman.

It’s classic Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” manufacturing/maintaining rage in the community. As an amazon comment on the book states “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it”.

Inflaming the base, spurs votes and secures elections. This makes it a good thing, irrespective of who gets demonized/hurt by this perverting of attitudes and no doubt behavior. I guess it is a case of “For the good of all, we must spread hate”.

So sad. For everyone.

This post is based on a comment Don’t forget the broken nose  submitted to nakedcapitalism in response to, among other things, claims  Zimmerman did not sustained an injury, was racist etc.

This could say a lot about the kind of guy Zimmerman is:

OFFICIALS say George Zimmerman helped rescue four people from an overturned vehicle last week, just days after he was cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Still willing to put himself out to help others.

On-going reporting on The Last Refuge:

 
Racism and Sexism are OK

Racism and Sexism are great. Yep. The British Conservative Government is legislating to allow racism and sexism when deciding who to hire. They are happy for people to discriminate against women, at least as long as they are white women. Men can be put to the bottom of the pile. Although if you are a black male you will rank above white men, I am not sure how white women rank compared to black men.

The Conservative Party has truly lost any concept of the traditional values it should be conserving. The left have utterly corrupted the conceptual framework through which it views the world. They must be mad. Absolutely stark raving mad, the UK is up against it. Its North Sea oil is running out. Its earnings from invisibles is increasingly suspect. Its government debt is growing and thanks to its bailouts is not all denominated in British pounds. Financial vested interests have led the develop world to the brink of bankruptcy:

Essentially the last round of government interventions achieved nothing except more time. This was bought at the cost of a considerable increasing of public debt as they bailed out private debt holders. The decline in sovereign balance sheets limits their ability to meet any future expected event.

They also gave the appearance which may reflect the reality of being captured by vested interests related to their financial system. It is hard to see how their behavior differed to that of a kleptocracy.

The financial sector will be curtailed once the defaults start in earnest and the people realize just how much they have lost. This will hurt Britain more than most. They need to promote their best people to earn enough money to pay for imports of food and fuel.

But Britain will enable people to get jobs and be promoted on the grounds of sex and race rather than pure ability. That’ll work out well. The USA has been doing this for years and the full extent of its negative effect are only becoming apparent now. No country has a right to be wealthy. It has to be earned. Bright people in positions of authority help this to happen, race and gender are irrelevant. Perverting promotions to satisfy those who see the world through a racist and sexist prism will not help. It will hinder. It also shows just how much the Left has undermined the Right. They no longer even know what is right:

Cultural intangibles: The left have undermined the rule of law, prices, markets, trust, property rights and even truth. The left are undermining what made the West a success. They are doing this deliberately and are totally ignorant of the consequences. They have forgotten what life is like for all peoples everywhere until capitalism arose in the West. Their politically correct value system is opposed by the people and will impoverish any society that adopts them.

Apartheid was overthrown in South Africa. The UK racist discrimination against whites is ethically on a par with Afrikaner discrimination against blacks. Racism is racism. As for favoring women, lets see how that goes down with the British Sharia Courts.

Not that the conservatives are opposed to the growth of Sharia law. Oh no. Being opposed to the application of Sharia law in the UK would require good judgment and the ability to discriminate between right and wrong. The left have made judgment and discrimination into dirty words. And the right has swallowed so much of the lefts conceptual framework they no longer know right from wrong:

Thus a mob calling for the beheading of all unbelievers is not threatening the peace. A mob calling for your country to be dissolved into a global caliphate is not threatening the peace. A mob calling for your daughters and grand daughters to be made to wear the veil is not threatening the peace. A mob calling for the killing of homosexuals and heterosexuals who have sex outside marriage is not threatening the peace.  But someone publicly objecting to any of the above is totally beyond the pale, is a threat to the peace and must be arrested. Indeed, they must be a racist.

Shame on them, Conservative should be ashamed for going along with this. Openly discriminating against the bulk of your population ought to be the path to electoral oblivion. If Conservatives can’t put their own house in order then it is time the house was demolished and replaced with one built on firmer foundations. I am referring to the Party, not the Country.

The USA has been discriminating against people of no colour for years. They got away with it in part because the economy was growing or appeared to be growing. It is one thing to distort the distribution of a growing pie. It is another to do that to a static or shrinking pie. I think official racist and sexist discrimination will not survive the downturn in the USA or UK. Already men in the US are being hit particularly hard. The same may well prove to be true in the UK. By hit, I mean losing jobs. Not the enforcement of officially sanctioned Sharia punishments.

The vast majority of people will not accept officially enabled discrimination against them in tough times. The perpetrators and enablers of this assault against their liberty will be thrown out of office. They deserve worse as traitors to the conservative cause.

The right needs to get back in touch with the core beliefs of their societies. The same beliefs which enabled those societies to become great in the first place, the UK, USA and the rest of Albion’s cultural seed were founded on the rights of Englishmen to Liberty. Not to be discriminated against because of their colour, because some bureaucrat wants to put race and gender before efficiency.
