Orwell Lives!

If you haven't read 1984 by George Orwell, you really should.  Sadly, the following isn't fiction but real life:

The leader of the New Black Panther Party called for a $10,000 bounty for the man who shot and killed black Florida teen Trayvon Martin, a case that continues spark explosive emotions and strain the country's racial tensions.

"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth," New Black Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad said Saturday when he announced the reward at a protest in Sanford, the Orlando suburb where the killing took place.

Members of the New Black Panther party called for the mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture George Zimmerman, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Zimmerman has gone into hiding due to death threats and the offer of the $10,000 reward, his legal advisor Craig Sonner said, according to Reuters.

"He should be fearful for his life," Muhammad said. "You can't keep killing black children."

Um...okay.  A few thoughts.

First, is anyone else noticing the mind-boggling irony that we have a bunch of black people boldly calling for the capture and unlawful punishment of a white guy for acting in self-defense?  Does anyone have any question of whether or not Martin Luther King, Jr. would be on board with this bunch?  What about this isn't a racial hate crime waiting to happen?

That brings us to the equally mind-boggling fact of the deafening silence from the White House and the Department of Justice.  No, seriously.  Where are the official statements from these formal law enforcement entities?  Obama and DOJ Secretary Eric Holder were sure all over the incident when a white cop got into an altercation with a black professor (never mind that the cop was legally in the right and the black professor was getting unnecessarily roudy).  So where are they now, when black people are openly calling for extra-legal 'justice' to be done upon a white guy?

Isn't it about to time acknowledge that for this administration race is nothing but a tool for bludgeoning their opponents into submission?
