The Left Has Made The Trayvon Martin Story Even Sadder

Muhammad: Well, according to the street law, he has been charged with murder. 

Cooper: According to the what? 

Muhammad: We have 40—30,000 people out here today—according to street law, according to God’s law. Andy, I want to say I don’t obey the white man’s law, I don’t follow the American law. The American law—the American law does not protect me, Anderson. I’m not a citizen. So I have no right to respect American law. So we decided to (unintelligible) language, to put pressure on the United Snakes, because these are snakes, government to arrest him. Because when the people find him, he may not be alive. So do your job. Do your job.

or as Instapundit put it:

Hispanic Democrat shoots a black guy and somehow it’s the fault of white Republicans. Because, I guess, everything is.

This entire horrific story has been even made more horrific by posers and other people with an agenda bend facts to fit and fan the flames of racism by false stories and false charges of racism. It's all in the left's playbook of tactics and strategy. That is a sad fact of modern politics and will become more so if progressives and socialists believe they are indeed successfully pushing their meme. This will be even more true if they can prevent the facts from becoming the basis of the story which is also sad because we don't know if George Zimmerman is guilty or not. Of course, to the left Zimmerman's innocence might just be collateral damage for their greater "good."

ADDED: Professor Douglas at American Power points out another aspect of turning this into a circus for profit:
