Trayvon Martin: Guilty of Gay Bashing?
Trayvon Martin’s rather inarticulate and seemingly uneducated female friend, Rachel Jeantel, appeared on the little-watched Piers Morgan show on CNN last night (July 15) and what she had to say about what might have been Martin’s motivation for beating up George Zimmerman is a shocker. As Rush Limbaugh notes, Trayvon Martin may well have been committing a hate crime against gays when he attacked Zimmerman.
We know that the left has already set its own (false) narrative, of course. This is a white on black crime as far as the Old Media and the left-wing is concerned. Of course, the actual facts don’t support that conclusion and this is why the all female jury in Florida acquitted Zimmerman. But there may be another aspect to this incident that only today are we starting to grasp.
In her own inimitable way, Rachel Jeantel may have inadvertently blurted out this new twist when she told Piers Morgan that she warned Trayvon when she was speaking to him via cell phone that fateful night that George Zimmerman might be an gay predator so he, Martin, should be careful.
On the phone call Martin told Jeantel about Zimmerman looking his way and he called Zimmerman a “Creepy ass cracka.” Jeantel then told Piers Morgan that she warned Trayvon that Zimmerman might be a homosexual.
Yes. Definitely. After I say, “Might be a rapist.” For every boys or every man, every who’s not that kinda way, see a grown man following them, would they be creep out? So you gotta take as a parent. You tell a child, “You see a grown person follow it you, run away,” and all that.
There you have it, folks. Jeantel and Martin were characterizing George Zimmerman as a gay man and when Martin began to beat on Zimmerman, isn’t that a “hate crime” against gays? After all, its the intent that matters, isn’t it?
This is how Rush Limbaugh saw it on his July 16 radio broadcast, anyway.
” You need me to translate that?” Rush asked. “Okay. She has put in Trayvon’s mind that Zimmerman is gay. Zimmerman might be a rapist, and a predator.”
So maybe, in their minds, Zimmerman is a gay male predator hiding behind a badge, which gives him access to little boys. I mean, this is the way certain people think, and we already know that she believed that Zimmerman was a rapist, or potential rapist, and put that thought in Trayvon’s head, and Trayvon didn’t run away. He turned around and started beating up on Zimmerman. Not because Zimmerman was “a white Hispanic.” He didn’t even know what he was!
So now Trayvon Martin, who is the recipient of full-fledged, 100% victim status? It turns out could well be a gay basher, and the left has been defending him.
Since few on the left really paid any attention to the actual facts in this case from the beginning this new point will probably be ignored and the left’s ultimate hypocrisy won’t be caught by many. But it should be made known for the record.
But, for sure, the left has failed this case all the way around. Instead of noting the actual facts of the case, the left has preferred instead to assume that it was a white/black issue (even though no white guys were involved), that it was a case of the “stand your ground” law gone bad (even though that law had nothing at all to do with this case), that Trayvon Martin was wholly innocent (even though he physically attacked and began to beat up Zimmerman before Zimmerman pulled out his gun), and that Zimmerman was clearly a racist looking to kill a black kid (despite that Zimmerman never mentioned race without a prompt, has no reputation as a racist, and only mentioned Martin’s race to the 911 operator when asked what the kid looked like).
But let’s not let facts get in the way of the left’s hatemongering, shall we?
So, what do you think? Was Trayvon a gay basher?
