Randi Rhodes: Trayvon Autopsy
Details of the investigation into the Trayvon Martin killing are coming out. According to his family doctor, George Zimmerman had a broken nose and two black eyes. That just proves that Trayvon Martin managed to fight back a little before he was killed. All I know is, if George Zimmerman hadn’t have pursued Trayvon against the instructions of the police dispatcher, he wouldn’t have gotten a broken nose... and Trayvon Martin wouldn’t have gotten killed. The bottom line is that Trayvon Martin’s autopsy report definitely proves one thing—Trayvon Martin was the one who needed an autopsy.
If George Zimmerman was stalking Trayvon, and Trayvon did manage to give him a broken nose and black eyes, wouldn’t Trayvon’s reaction be thoroughly justified under Florida’s Stand Your Ground Laws? Or do Stand Your Ground Laws only apply to people who shoot other people? Or should I say non-black people who shoot black people?
The House has passed a Republican version of the Violence Against Women Act. As you would expect, it does a lot more to protect Republicans than it does to protect women. President Obama says he would veto the House version. That tells you how bad it is—women need to be protected from the Republican House bill to protect women.
The wacky anti-gay activist who said President Obama might be gay has given an interview. Dr. Paul Cameron is the chairman of the Family Research Institute. It really makes you question who should be able to use the terms “doctor” and “institute.” It’s not clear what made Paul Cameron think Obama is gay, but after hearing this interview, you’ll realize Paul Cameron has no idea who is gay or not... starting with himself.
Finally, Ben Stein says that President Obama is not really very smart. Ben said this on the Bill O’Reilly show. Ben, you can’t really question somebody’s decision-making ability when you’ve obviously made the decision to spend time talking to Bill O’Reilly.
