Have you ever said something and as the words are exiting your mouth you’re already questioning your own sanity? As you speak, some other portion of your brain is repeating: “How stupid are you? Did you just say what I think you said?”
Well, that’s what Twitter is. It is the perfect platform for the stupid. I didn’t say the idea of Twitter is moronic but it does allow morons to instantaneously express their less than reasoned declarations.
We’ve heard the saying, or at least something similar: “The best truth serum is alcohol.” Unlike drugs, alcohol only enhances or reveals one’s true thoughts and feelings. Twitter, to the weak minded, is like alcohol.
The completely right and just Zimmerman verdict is a perfect example of this.
First, I applaud the jury for their verdict. For one who had the integrity and honesty to look at the facts presented there was only one logical conclusion. Let’s pray the members of the jury don’t become targets. They did as they were charged to do.
Now let’s look at the verdict through the eyes of the stupid, the racist and hustlers of the Twitter parade.
You have the typical celebrity set, so ill-informed, so hungry for constant attention that they must inject themselves into every fashionable headline.
Miley Cyrus tweeted: “I feel sick #Riptrayvonmartin”
There is that pillar of intellect Nicki Manaj: “May God console the Martins at this time; as well as every other family that’s gone through this type of injustice.”
Box office Megastar Tom Arnold: “Dear son, I love you and there is no shame in running away from creepy ass crackers. #nojustice”
Need I remind you that during the trial we learned that “creepy ass crackers” is not derogatory.
Did I forget anyone? Oh right, Kim Kardashian. A story like this would not be complete without a Tweet from her, although hers was actually the more reasoned: “My heart goes out to Trayvon Martin’s family and loved ones. Thoughts and prayers being sent their way #nojustice.” Reasoned until you get to “#nojustice”.
There’s sports/entertainment crossover Michael Strahan: “In shock over this….Wow! Just wow!” Which segwayed into racist athletes such as Roddy White (receiver, Atlanta Falcons): *#@%ing Zimmerman got away with murder today well what kind of world do we live in. All them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid.” Genius!
And finally back to the political panderers and bombthrowers such as Michael Moore: “Had a gun toting Trayvon Martin stalked an unarmed George Zimmerman, and then shot him to death… DO I EVEN NEED TO COMPLETE THIS SENTENCE?” No you fat slob; I guess you don’t.
Attorney Sonny Hostin tweeted: “As a lawyer, I believe in the system and accept the jury’s verdict. I do think justice failed Trayvon Martin. Justice took the day off.” Sounds like she’s really accepting. How did she pass the bar? They must be setting it lower.
And of course we have the heavy handed federal government that must wield the sword of righteousness with every perceived injustice.
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) re-tweeted a message from NAACP president Ben Jealous, calling for the DOJ to pursue federal charges against Zimmerman. He re-tweeted: “@BenJealous: We can move from anger to action. As the DOJ to pursue federal civil rights charges.”
And New York rep Jerrold Nadler called the death a “senseless tragedy” and said he supported the Justice Department’s decision to investigate the shooting. He tweeted: “Trayvon Martin’s death was a senseless tragedy & I’m deeply saddened tonight. Pleased that DOJ is continuing to evaluate evidence.”
Evidence? I thought the evidence was presented at the trial?
And there you have the sad state of America. The law was followed, a trial by jury acquitted an innocent man and as always liberals can’t and won’t accept the outcome.
Sadly this is not over.
