Obviously, These Reports Are Raaaaacist!

16 May 2012 @ 10:45

That old cliche, ‘the truth will set you free’, may be coming true in the Trayvon Martin Case…

From ABC News, Matt Gutman reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to William Jacobson]:

A medical report compiled by the family physician of accused Trayvon Martin murderer George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation.

The record shows that Zimmerman also suffered bruising in the upper lip and cheek and lower back pain. The two lacerations on the back of his head, one of them nearly an inch long, the other about a quarter-inch long, were first revealed in photos obtained exclusively by ABC News last month.

A neighbor told ABC News that the day after the shooting he saw Zimmerman as he spoke to officers outside his home. He too recalled seeing black eyes and significant swelling — as well as a bandage over his nose.

Also, as quoted by Jim Hoft, WFTV reports [tip of the fedora to Instapundit, who has a new book out]:

WFTV has learned that the medical examiner found two injuries on Martin’s body: The fatal gunshot wound and broken skin on his knuckles.

While this is, perhaps, news to celebrate – that the Truth is coming out – Jeff Goldstein brings us back to earth with a well-deserved thud:

Naturally, there’ll be quite a bit of triumphalism on the right side of the blogosphere. But remember: it was Republican state officials who caved to the race pimps and brought in special investigators; and it is Republican state officials who charged Zimmerman with second degree murder — despite findings by local law enforcement that no such charges, let alone even manslaughter charges, were merited by the evidence.

And that’s because, as the Derbyshire and other incidents have shown us, Republican officials (and their contemporary GOP apparatus) are terrified of being tarred with the “racist” brush, and will climb over each other to avoid the charges.

Meaning, the GOP has already lost the “race” debate — and so the identity politics wars — and they don’t even realize it.

Too damn true.

OPERATION WHIG is looking mighty good these days.

    When things are done shaking out over the next decade there’ll be some settling up to do.

    So the Republicans, by overcompensating, have actually made matters worse. So what’s new? They should know that there’s no appeasing the real racists.

    This post is raaaaaaaacist. And if you disagree with me you’re raaaaaacist.

    What the hell happened to letting the law work its course?

    Oh yeah, race hustlers and champagne socialist ‘journalists’ have so much inherent power.
