The Sanctification Continues

By way of the extremely valuable Common Sense and Wonder comes this gem:

Through their nakedly deceptive public speaking tours, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, parents of Trayvon Martin, are all but ensuring that a high percentage of American black males will continue to end up in the cradle-to-prison pipeline. By glorifying their son's lifestyle, they push young wayward blacks away from the truth and into further trouble....

The couple didn't exactly make family values their top priority when little Trayvon was growing up. Facebook postings showing Trayvon's message logs about concocting "lean," a codeine cocktail abused by rappers and others, and pictures with him flashing cash tell us the boy was headed in the wrong direction. But you'd never know it from his father Tracy Martin's acting job at the first hearing of the Congressional Caucus on Black Men and Boys this past Wednesday, or from Sybrina Fulton's response on Thursday to juror B29's admission in various interviews that "George Zimmerman got away with murder."

Martin told lawmakers he wants to start mentoring programs through his Trayvon Martin Foundation so that what happened to his son doesn't happen to other young black males. But get this: it's not about baby-mamas, or womanizing fathers who spread their seed from one female to the next -- so much so that the kids spawned by these relationships have no idea whose house they should go to on any given day. No, it's trying "to educate our communities on the Florida statutes, on the Florida laws ... that really we need to understand how these laws apply to ourselves."

It is the white man's laws that are to blame. Mess around with women as much as you want, and have as many babies as you want outside marriage, or even abort them; taxpayers will foot the bill. Just get rid of that Stand Your Ground nonsense.

Besides the plug for his foundation and the promise to teach black males how to get one over on the rule of law, Martin touted himself as father of the year.

Just to have the life of your son taken away from you, when you've molded him to become an outstanding citizen of this country -- it's heart-wrenching. That's something that you can never get over.

...As one of the lawmakers in attendance, [D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton] articulated exactly what-race hustlers like Martin and his new BFFs are after.

We seek a society that doesn't define black men and boys, but allows African-American males the opportunity to define themselves as individuals....

After the ABC show on Thursday morning, and right on cue, Sybrina Fulton, who hasn't missed a stage direction since February 2012, came out with the following retort:

It is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror B29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true. That George Zimmerman literally got away with murder.

This new information challenges our nation once again to do everything we can to make sure that this never happens to another child. That's why Tracy and I have launched The Trayvon Martin Foundation to try and take something very painful and negative and turn it into something positive as a legacy to our son....

Fulton is not interested in turning the death of her son into anything but an opportunity to get the focus off herself. Her son's rage-filled, vulgar, sexual meanderings online as well as his anti-social behavior are a reflection of her lousy parenting, and she knows it. But it was a good distraction that this tragedy happened under a half-black Alinskyite who knew just how to politicize the death of a kid and how to put the mother in the spotlight.

That's about as much as I can excerpt without running afoul of "fair use" rules. Please read the whole thing -- and then have a second look at Bill Whittle's video expose.

I continue to maintain that on the night he was killed, Trayvon Martin got exactly what his conduct had earned him. The digging other investigators have done makes it plain that Martin's genetic contributors -- I refuse to call such persons parents -- were both entirely unconcerned with their son's actual course through life, and will accept none of the odium for how he developed.

Yet just the other day, when I expressed those sentiments in another forum, another commenter called me "STUPID" -- yes, caps and all -- said the fact that Zimmerman got out of his truck and asked Martin "what are you doing here?" made Zimmerman a murderer, and that the only reason I saw things differently was that I "hate black people."

Generally speaking, I don't hate anyone. It takes too much energy, and besides, 99.9999% of Mankind falls well below my threshold of personal concern. But I might make an exception for Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, who produced a drug-addled "gangsta" with aggression issues, and who prefer that the blame for their son's death fall on the man he beat half-unconscious and to whom he said, "You're gonna die tonight."

In his written opinion on a case concerning the mandatory sterilization of a retarded woman who had produced children she could not support, Associate Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote in justification that "Three generations of imbeciles are enough." When I first encountered that case, the relevant Virginia law, and Holmes's opinion, I was horrified by them. In light of the Zimmerman / Martin encounter and the public posturings of the dead thug's progenitors, today I find myself in agreement...except that for Holmes's "three" I would substitute "one." Yet there are elected officials paying respectful attention to Martin and Fulton. It is to laugh...hollowly, and with many a bitter tear.

Just like Zero, their hero, blame anything, anyone, everyone or everything but the real reason as cause of the dysfunction or the issue.

But Francis, don't you know expecting personal responsibility of the protected group is racism.
