No, There Isn’t A Duty To Retreat ….. Dumbasses

Here’s Holder’s latest bit of stupidity……..

“But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely,” Holder said. “By allowing — and perhaps encouraging — violent situations to escalate in public, such laws undermine public safety.”

Now, consider, how this logic would apply to Martin. While it was never shown that Zimmerman did menace Martin, let’s assume what all the lunatics have alleged is true. That Zimmerman did menace Martin. That Zimmerman did set out to harm Martin. Under this interpretation, Martin would have been obliged to retreat.

But, do we think for one moment that Holder would encourage prosecution of such an action? Not a chance. Mostly, because he’s a racist bigot. But, also because he possesses no concept of equal application of the law. 

No, there is a duty, however.  There is a duty not to assault, menace, or attempt to cause harm to peaceful citizens going about their business. 

He babbled his stupidity in a call to end stand-your-ground laws, which wasn’t applied at the Zimmerman trail. 

In a civil and just society, people have the right to go about their business unfettered by criminals, seeking to do people harm. 

Holder and many other advocates, think it’s okay for certain groups of people to menace, assault, and cause harm to other groups of people.  And, he refuses to apply laws equally in pursuit of justice. 

In other stupid racist Holder news, he’s setting up a “hotline” for people to give tips for the potential federal civil rights charges against the just-acquitted defendant.  Double jeopardy be damned. 

[O]ther organizations represented on the call, including the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the ACLU, and several “human relations” groups.

As Allen West noted, ‘Where Was NAACP and Media When Two Black Teenagers Shot a White Baby in the Face?’

That is a reference to this event.  But, where was Holder and his tip hotline?  How come we didn’t see “White Rage”?  And, where was Al Sharpton?  And where were the lily white race leftarded race apologists?  How come they didn’t pontificate on the meaning  of that event?  And,  the many others like it?

DISCLAIMER!!!  These are words for an ideal world where people are all treated equally in a civil and just society.  Such a state does not exist in the US.  Do not take this as legal advice!

    Stevie Wonder (Whose abilities I greatly admire) has said he will boycott Florida over the death of one black ‘child’. Why is it I get the feeling Chicago will get all the Stevie Wonder visits they require?

      Yeh, in Wonder’s defense, he’s blind so he couldn’t see much of what was presented. Did the people around him tell him that Zimmerman was bloodied in the front and the back of his head? Did they tell him it was very likely that Martin was on top of Zimmerman when he shot him? Probably not. Still, it’s disturbing that celebs would attack our judicial system like this.

    Wow. Pretty horrible that Holder would posthumously profile Martin as someone Zimmerman should have been threatened by.

    It’s sad when our government is more concerned about Zimmerman and Martin than bigger issues like the economy, jobs, foreign affairs, etc… When we have our government saying “who cares about what happened in Benghazi” yet blathering away over one media exploited trial (which was probably orchestrated to draw attention away from their other scandals), you know their priorities are in the wrong place.

      This draws attention away from Skeeter’s responsibility for the train wreck in Canada. If he had authorized the pipeline when he should have the wreck probably would not have happened.
      Of course they only mention the local fire department’s responsibility due to turning off power to the air brakes on the train which would have required setting the manual brakes on every car. What has not been examined is if the first fire may have been set by those attempting to stop the transport of oil by rail. They should not rule that out as the ECONUTS are known to pull such stunts.

      • HankH says:

        So true… so many scandals, golf games, vacations, dance parties at the WH, and kowtowing to envirowackos, who has time to bother with actually running a country?

    Retreat? If he had been alive 237 years ago, we would still be an English Colony! What a dick head!

    “There is a duty not to assault, menace, or attempt to cause harm to peaceful citizens going about their business.”
    Yep, and Zimmerman had a duty, a duty to keep his eye (until the police arrived) on a suspicious person in his neighborhood. This is done in all cultures, in all societies. It is our business to protect our lives and our property. Zimmerman did both that day. A society where everyone turns a blind eye and a deaf ear to the out of charcter person, to the noise that should not be ignored, is a neighborhood of fear and isolation, not a community.
    I have twiced pulled my car up in a neighborhood that was new to me, and while waiting for my son to come out of an atheletic manager’s house, I have been asked by an inquisitive neighbor if they could help me. (clearly they just wanted to know my business there) I did not call them, or think of them, as a “creepy ass cracker” but told them my business in THEIR neighborhood.
    This case is not complicated, but bigots like the LSM and Holder, and Obama, have made it so.

    Father O’Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new west Texas mission parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the Department of Justice.

    The conversation went like this:

    “Good morning. This is Eric Holder. How might I help you?”

    “And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O’Malley at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. There’s a jackass lying dead in me front lawn and would ye be so kind as to send a couple o’yer lads to take care of the matter?”

    Eric Holder, considering himself to be quite a wit and recognizing the foreign accent, thought he would have a little fun with the good father, replied, “Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!”

    There was dead silence on the line for a long moment…

    Father O’Malley then replied: “Aye, ’tis certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin first, which is the reason for me call.”

    WeLLLLLLll Mr Holder….

    If this is true – ““But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely,” Holder said”

    TELL US:
    Why didn’t Mr Martin retreat – pound on doors – wakeup neighbors ?

    It was stated …He said on the phone he was “scarred” ..
    HE had 4 minutes…Yet, instead of doing these things…
