Conservative Agenda In Trayvon Martin Case: Whites Are Victims
At first glance, there’s no obvious conservative agenda here. They might, in the abstract, want to defend the “Stand Your Ground” laws that have suddenly drawn the public’s attention since the Martin shooting. But the shooting itself? There’s no special conservative principle at stake that says neighborhood watch captains should be able to shoot anyone who looks suspicious. There’s no special conservative principle at stake that says local police forces should barely even pretend to investigate the circumstances of a shooting. There’s no special conservative principle at stake that says young black men shouldn’t wear hoodies.
As Kevin Drum explains:
“the conservative principle that’s actually at stake here: convincing us all that traditional racism no longer really exists and that it’s whites who are the real racial victims in today’s America.”
You can see the Drudge/Right Wing smear campaign and fake photos of Trayvon kick in the past few days.
