Conservatives are responsible for death?

Category: left,mediaharmonicminer @ 1:36 pm

MSNBC sinks to new low, starring Karen Finney.

This isn’t even “opinion journalism.” It’s just idiotic. By the way, the “30” she mentions in this abbreviated clip is probably the 30 states that have or are making some kind of “stand your ground” law protecting people who defend themselves from criminal prosecution.

I don’t know the facts of the case in question. The shooter may indeed simply be a murderer and not a person acting in self-defense. I have no interest in defending his actions if that’s the case.

But this conflation of conservatives protecting their constitutional rights with guilt for murder is not even risible…. it’s just complete, total hate speech, funded and disseminated by MSNBC, the hate speech network.

    The left has just been waiting for an issue like this. They are licking their chops. They will soon be calling for anyone who is a conservative to wear a star of David or something. Time to flee to Israel?

    Nothing is benign when it comes to race in this country. I really feel this is more about an incompetent police department who exercised very questionable judgment. And while we’re at it, would anyone even be talking about this if the young man who was shot was Asian, Latino, or Middle Eastern? The whole thing has shades of Rodney King, which I was completely sucked into at the time. I felt embarrassed later when I came to understand what a complete scum bag he was. There are a great many facts that have been yet to be illuminated here, I suspect.

    I tuned out when the Race Hustlers barged in. Soooo sickeningly predictable.

    Nothing wrong with packing heat as long as you do it responsibly. It takes a lot of training to learn how and when to use a firearm in self-defense, and I hope these stand your ground laws aren’t giving good citizens an excuse to cut corners.

    If George Zimmerman was black and killed a teenaged white kid he would have been hanged already. Its conservatives that lobby for “stand your ground” type laws. Considering the NRA isnt known for its liberal leanings, Karen Finney isnt that far off.

    This site is only interested in one opinion apparently

    Sorry for the delay in getting your comments approved, Factual. I have not been able to avoid spam by just using spam catchers, so I now don’t allow first time commenters to get a comment up without me checking to be sure it isn’t spam. After that, your comments go up automatically, so there shouldn’t be a delay after this.

    Having said that, your comment that “If George Zimmerman was black and killed a teenaged white kid he would have been hanged already” is surely hyperbole, no? Death penalty cases take FOREVER, and there would be plenty of time for Zimmerman’s defense to unfold as self-defense (if that is indeed the case…. I have no idea from where I sit, only knowing what shows up in the media). Do you really think the courts are so racist that they don’t allow self-defense claims made by blacks who defend themselves from white attackers?

    The people who are “stuck in the 50s” (your comment on another thread) are on the left, not the right. The Left still thinks it’s 1954 in Selma, and talks like that, as you seem to. But this is 2012, and things in the USA are VERY different.

    In the end this is a justice issue, not a race issue. Either Zimmerman is a murderer, or he acted in self defense. The case will drag on for a long time, and at the end, I don’t think either side will be particularly satisfied.
