Will Trayvon Martin Sweatshirt Be Displayed by Government as Sacred Relic?

Even if the liberal governmedia doesn’t manage to get new restrictions on our fundamental right of self-defense out of the Passion of Saint Skittles, at least moonbats will have a sacred relic to worship — namely the ghetto-style hoodie worn by Trayvon Martin when he assaulted George Zimmerman, which a gag-inducing Washington Compost piece suggests is “something as consequential and iconic as Babe Ruth’s bat or the Declaration of Independence”:

“I would like to see it preserved,” the Rev. Al Sharpton proclaimed into a cellphone on his way to a White House meeting about voting rights [i.e., voter fraud] with President Obama.

Sharpton, more than any other person, might be responsible for bringing the Martin killing to trial. He organized the huge rally in Sanford that brought such pressure on Florida officials that the governor eventually appointed a special prosecutor to take on the case.

Unmentioned by WaPo is that Sharpton had help from his friends in the White House.

Sharpton would like to see the hoodie reside one day at the National Museum of African American History and Culture [a Smithsonian Institution museum] now under construction on the Mall and expected to open in 2015.

Liberal worship of the vicious punk Trayvon Martin certainly has its farcical aspect, which makes the hoodlum hoodie a natural fit for the museum. Collected artifacts already include

the handcuffs used to restrain renowned African American scholar and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. in an episode that sparked a national debate about race and led to a “beer summit” with Obama aimed at cooling passions.

Also unmentioned by WaPo is that Obama was mainly responsible for igniting these passions in the first place when he proclaiming that police “acted stupidly” by arresting the professional race arsonist Gates for behaving like an unruly child after they caught him breaking into a house that they did not know was his.

No doubt future generations of Americans will believe that both Martin and Gates were noble figures oppressed by racism. As Orwell observed, those who control the present control the past so as to control the future. Our present is controlled by the likes of Al Sharpton.
