“Whether it is because of conservative tribalism, race, guns, or something else”
It’s amazing how ignorant you are, Arthur. And it’s kind of sad the way you are so eager to show your ignorance.
“conservative tribalism”: Zimmerman was a 2008 Obama volunteer
“race”: both Zimmerman and I are humans, so we share the same race. I’m pretty sure Martin was human, too, which means all three of us shared the same race. (You, I’m not so sure about.) If you mean “race” the way you leftist bigots and racists use the term, Zimmerman appears to share a lot more ancestors with Trayvon than he does with me
“guns”: plenty of thugs with guns. I’m generally quite happy to see them arrested, and convicted, Hell, Trayvon had texts saying that he was interested in both buying and selling guns
It is funny, because you almost managed to swerve into a truth. Because (I hope) Zimmerman and I DO belong to the same “tribe”, the tribe of people who work to make the world a better place. The tribe of people who are willing to go out of their way to help other, to protect others. The tribe of people who are willing to take a stand against the barbarians of the night.
The tribe of people who are willing to stand against the Trayvon Martin’s of the world.
Trayvon Martin was a thief, and a drug user, and thug, a street brawler who liked to fight. He was on a straight path to a worthless life, and the only real question was would he get killed before, or after, he killed someone else. And on a dark and rainy night, his ego and his thuggish nature lead him to attack a good and decent man, at best because that man’s attempts to protect his neighborhood hurt Martin’s ego, pride, or feelings.
Happily, that good and decent man was armed, so instead of being beaten to death, or until he was crippled for life, he was able to defend himself, and the young thug died instead. Sadly, he’ll probably have nightmares for the rest of his life. Also sadly, some leftist inspired PoS will probably murder him, for the “crime” of having committed self defense at a time when our Dear Leader Obama needed a patsy to stoke racial tensions, in order to eventually get his voters out to the polls.
If you gave a sh!t about the other young men on Trayvon’s path, you’d be out there screaming “don’t be like Trayvon. Build a worthwhile life, don’t be a punk, don’t be a thug.” But you don’t care. all you want is some talking points so you can pretend to be morally superior.
