Beyonce Signs and Links to MoveOn.org Petition Calling for Federal Civil Rights Charges Against George Zimmerman

July 26, 2013 – There has been some confusion lately on who is and who is not joining Stevie Wonder's boycott of Florida calling for the repeal of "Stand Your Ground Laws"; and part of it why I think some confusion is out there is because many musicians and artists have spoken out in favor of repealing the "Stand Your Ground" laws, and have been publicly speaking out in support of Trayvon's parents and #Justice4Trayvon. Jay-Z has spoke out in favor of repealing the law, and now 5 days ago Beyonce put up a Trayvon Martin tribute page on her website asking everyone to #ActNow4Trayvon, and signing her name and linking to a MoveOn.org petition calling for Eric Holder and the US Department of Justice to file Federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman who believe Trayvon Martin's civil rights were violated; there are many of us who think they were and JTMP is one of them. Check out Beyonce's Trayvon Martin Tribute Page here, where you can sign the MoveOn.org petition also. So, although many artists have come out in droves of the support of repealing the "Stand Your Ground" laws, they will never be any widespread boycott of Florida by musicians and artists; too many have residences there and too much money being handed around. Having civil rights charges filed against George Zimmerman would be a sweet second prize though. Sign the MoveOn.org petition here.

Ted Nugent: “George Zimmerman Should Sue Travon Martin’s Parents for Emotional Suffering”

July 18, 2013 – Old Uncle Ted Nugent has been really saying some pretty sick and twisted mind farts this week. You can see my blog from yesterday below me where I blogged about him saying some pretty racist and idiot shit and has even said some horrible things about Trayvon Martin in a July 14 Op Ed on Rare.com. (I know, I've never heard of them either, they are using this extremist rhetoric to get traffic to their site, and exploiting Trayvon's death) In that Op Ed Nugent claimed Trayvon was a "dope-smoking gangsta wannabe". First, Ted Nugent smoked dope and banged rock and roll groupies while other buddies his age were getting shot at in Vietnam, and he has probably smoked pot his whole life. So for him to criticize someone for "dope smoking" is like Honey Boo Boo criticizing someone for eating a Twinkie

For the next installment of Ted Nugent Is Insane series, he has written another Op Ed for the website "Rare", where their motto is "Red Is the Center", so they sound fair and balanced also, NOT. Anyways, Old Uncle Ted has done it again, this time he says that George Zimmerman ought to sue the parents of Trayvon Martin for…wait for it…emotional suffering. Yep, you heard it right. Ted thinks that since poor George couldn't just shoot Trayvon and walk away an hour later with no charges, which almost happened, that he should be able to sue.

Ted Says that George Zimmerman will not be "free" for the rest of his life, because "racist goons" will be stalking him. Wait…Gerorge Zimmerman is not the racist? Did I miss something here? Wasn't George the one who profiled, and slowed down and got out of a car because he saw a black kid? Hellooo?? Anyways, he goes on to say that Trayvon "brought on his own demise". How Ted? By trying to defend himself from the gun-toting, stalking, George Zimmerman? The cop-wannabe sociopath? Incredibly, Ted advises George Zimmerman to use the fact that Trayvon was a minor at the time, that legally his parents are responsible, so GZ should sue Trayvon's parents for the "18 months of untold emotional hell, pain, distress, anguish, fatigue, nightmares and financial ruin". So that is Ted's advice to George Zimmerman. Sue the mourning parents whose son was treated horribly by the Sanford police department and the Florida justice system. Ted, you are not a "simple Motor City guitar player". You are either insane, racist as hell, or both. You are a pathetic sight.
