Opinion: Did Trayvon Martin die for ‘standing his ground’? – CNN.com
… we are told that Martin, who had far greater reason to fear Zimmerman, practically and for reasons of American history, did not have the right to confront his stalker, stand his ground and defend himself, including by using his fists. We are told that this was entirely unjustified and by doing so, Martin justified his own execution.
I agreed with this opinion piece until it threw in the qualifier about Zimmerman failing to identify himself as being with Neighborhood Watch.
Zimmerman wasn’t with Neighborhood Watch.
Zimmerman was a one-man group, Neighborhood Armed Pursuit of a Black Child in Defiance of a Police Order.
Only Trayvon had the right to stand his ground.
He died for that right … and he’s being vilified for it.
And so are his parents. And so is his young friend.
Mainstream media ownership is tightly held by a handful of blasphemous billionaires who believe that only those they designate should have any rights at all.
And the Race to the Bottom of the empty-headed talking heads they employ has never been more obvious.
