I told you yesterday that Attorney General Eric Holder was facing pressure from racists, including the racist organization the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to file federal charges against George Zimmerman. Well, now it looks like the Federal Bureau of Investigation may present a roadblock to the Justice Department’s possible quest as their records find no evidence that George Zimmerman was a racist. Keep in mind that didn’t stop them from forming protests and security with tax dollars in Florida, nor did it stop Governor Rick Scott appointing a special prosecutor or that prosecutor filing charges against George Zimmerman when police had already investigated and found no reason to charge him.
Yesterday, the Hill reported:
The NAACP and other leading civil rights groups are pressing for Holder to open a federal case against Zimmerman, after he was found not guilty on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges by a Florida jury.
The public pressure leaves Holder, the nation’s first African-American attorney general, facing a difficult decision on a controversial case that has grabbed the nation’s attention and sparked renewed debate about racial profiling.
So the NAACP’s Ben Jealous has called for the Justice Department to intervene since obviously from his perspective the jury didn’t have a final say in the matter. “The most fundamental of civil rights—the right to life—was violated the night George Zimmerman stalked and then took the life of Trayvon Martin. We ask that the Department of Justice file civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman for this egregious violation,” his organization wrote in a petition unveiled Saturday evening. “Please address the travesties of the tragic death of Trayvon Martin by acting today.”
Apparently, they could see they weren’t going to get the desired verdict and wanted to put things in place beforehand. Of course, the usual suspects like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were out helping to push this agenda, along with their accomplices in the Democrat Party like Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) who tweeted:
Trayvon Martin's death was a senseless tragedy & I'm deeply saddened tonight. Pleased that DOJ is continuing to evaluate evidence.

Again, this is an incident that occurred inside a state. The state handled it properly. Then the federal government got involved and it became a circus. I can see absolutely no reason why the federal government should have been involved in this issue at all.
The DOJ and FBI stepped in nearly a month later, following nationwide protests, which we have now discovered that many were orchestrated by this same DOJ.
However, McClatchy had reported on Thursday:
“After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.
Even the lead detective in the case, Sanford Det. Chris Serino, told agents that he thought Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because of his attire and the circumstances — but not his race.
Serino saw Zimmerman as “having little hero complex, but not as a racist.”
The Duval County State Attorney released another collection of evidence in the Zimmerman murder case Thursday, including reports from FBI agents who investigated whether any racial bias was involved in Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing.
The evidence includes bank surveillance videos from the day of the killing, crime scene photos and memos from prosecutors.
Among the documents is a note from the prosecutor who said one of the witnesses said her son, a minor, had felt pressured by investigators to say the injured man he saw was wearing a red top. The boy’s testimony had been considered key, because it backed up Zimmerman’s allegation that he — wearing red — was being pummeled.
Federal agents interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors and co-workers, but none said Zimmerman had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26 shooting of Martin, a black teen, in a confrontation at a Sanford housing complex. As Sanford police investigated the circumstances of Martin’s death, the FBI opened a parallel probe to determine if Martin’s civil rights had been violated.
Several co-workers said they had never seen Zimmerman display any prejudice or racial bias.”
Hasn’t the racist Barack Obama and his racist sidekick Eric Holder done enough? Seriously, I think it’s way past time for them to be playing the race card, but I suppose when you are a Democrat, that’s really all you’ve got to play.
