Leftist hypocrisy

About the hypocrisy of the left: On one hand, you have the surviving alleged Boston bomber on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine; its headline might as well have been, ”Give him a break. He was just the victim of his family's beliefs.” Besides, he's so cute!

On the other hand, you have George Zimmerman portrayed as a monster who profiled an unarmed child just trying to get home with Skittles. Though Zimmerman was found not guilty in a court of law, he is villainized and called a murderer.

I can't help but think of the phrase, “Give us Barabbas!” Now, I'm not trying to compare Zimmerman to Jesus, but Jesus was brought to trial on trumped-up charges. Even though Pontius Pilate could “find no fault in this man,” Jesus was politically scorned, beaten, ridiculed and crucified. The crowd chose Barabbas.

Like Jesus, Zimmerman is a sacrificial lamb for the political left. While his trial was going on, 61 black males (men, boys) were gunned down in Chicago alone. We'll never know their names because their lives are not politically advantageous. These crimes don't fit into the narrative of the left.

God bless America!
