Conservative Website Intern Calls For Government Security For Zimmerman, Really?

  • Oh, the sheer nerve! The gall! The chutzpah! And Gabe Finger has plenty of all three.

    Finger, all of 16 years old, is a summer intern for The Daily Caller, a conservative news and commentary web site.

    Yes, the web site being conservative is pertinent to this story.

    It should come as no surprise to BAW readers The Daily Caller is sympathetic to George Zimmerman, the homicidal creep who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

    For the past year, America’s conservatives – save for at least one – have fallen madly, nauseatingly head-over-heels in love with Zimmerman. Their passion for the creep is akin to a bobbysoxer swooning over Frank Sinatra, except bobbysoxers had more dignity by comparison.

    So it should also come as no surprise to BAW readers that Finger dredged up the cheek to ask White House press secretary Jay Carney this question:

    “Because of the death threats being received by George Zimmerman and his parents, is the president going to take any action for their security or are they on their own?”

    According to a story in the Washington Post, “Carney responded that he wasn’t aware of the threats and that Florida authorities would be responsible for handling them, but that Obama opposes ‘any violence of any kind’ in response to the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case.”

    Here’s how the cheeky Finger responded:

    “So they’re on their own?”

    Only when BAW readers remind themselves that Finger is an intern for a conservative news and commentary web site will they appreciate how hypocritical Finger was, and what colossal nerve he had.

    Didn’t the federal government, countless numbers of times, leave black Americans “on their own” and to the not-so-tender mercies of white racist lynch mobs and rioters?

    And didn’t it do so with the gleeful blessing of – you guessed it – America’s conservative wing?

    Whatever happened to the cherished conservative principle of federalism, which means the federal government is to have limited power and that cities, counties and states are supposed to take care of their own affairs?

    Well, to the Gabe Fingers of the country, that applies when black folks are being lynched, mobbed, murdered and run out of their homes.

    When the targets are white people, then conservatives want to move the goal posts; they want to change the rules and they have no problem abandoning their supposedly cherished principles.

    1. To the conservative website intern calling for government security for Zimmerman, you would advocate for this and then turn around months later talking about how your tax dollars are being abused. There are plenty of conservation organizations you can go to and ask them to finance life-long protection for Zimmerman. No, they don’t want to spend their money, they rather spend someone else’s.

    2. Don’t try to reason with a cave n!@@er, it is futile. These mayonnaise monkeys are inherently racist. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

    3. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Democrat icon and orchestrator of Japanese Internment
      - Ex-House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt, former affiliate of a St. Louis area racist group
      - Ex-Senate President Pro Tempore Robert Byrd, former Ku Klux Klansman known for making bigoted slurs on national television
      - Rev. Jesse Jackson, Democrat keynote speaker and race hustler known for making anti-Semitic slurs
      - Rev. Al Sharpten, Democrat activist and perennial candidate and race hustler known inciting anti-Semitic violence in New York City
      - Sen. Ernest Hollings, leading Democrat Senator known for use of racial slurs against several minority groups
      - Lee P. Brown, former Clinton cabinet official and Democrat mayor of Houston who won reelection using racial intimidation against Hispanic voters
      - Andrew Cuomo, former Clinton cabinet official and Democrat candidate for NY Governor who made racist statements about a black opponent.
      - Dan Rather, Democrat CBS news anchor and editorialist known for using anti-black racial epithets on a national radio broadcast

      • jhuff, I’m confused, what has that little list have to do with the issue at hand?? Seems like you went to a whole lot of trouble for NOTHING. Don’t try the old right wing trick of Changing the Subject.

        • Well Virginia it’s in response to this article the writer seems to think the readers are
          some Low Information Zombies that don’t exercise independent thought.
          Jared Loughner, Adam Lanza , James Holmes these are all White men who not only killed whites but blacks as well no conservative has called for there protection.
          the article wants you to think Rep.s/conservatives want blacks dead that’s pretty silly.
          It talks about blacks being left unprotected to will white racists lynch mobs.. well
          Sweet heart who do you think those mobs were? Good old southern Democrats
          George Wallace (D) governor on Alabama tried to block black students from attending
          a white school JFK called out the national guard on him. Voting Rights act held up
          by democrats LBJ got it past with votes from Republicans .and what has the democratic
          party done for us lately ? I’m simply pointing out that your friend is not always your friend

    4. @JanCorey if you feel so strongly about the acquittal of George Zimmerman join a pro-Zimmerman website and express your thoughts there but do not come to this site where the majority of readers are African-American and have African-American children. It is people like you in 2013 that make me afraid for my sons to live a normal teenage life. Trayvon Martin looked like a suspect because of his attire and that type of thinking is unacceptable. There is an old saying never judge a book by its cover and GZ did just that and took an innocent life. You want to talk facts let’s talk facts: A conservative blogger decided to hack TM email account to try and dig up dirt to defame this young man and what he found was corresponding emails to different colleges and universities; TM had did over 600 hours of community service in his neighborhood; he adored children; TM loved his family and was an overall good student in fact one of his teachers said at his funeral it was pleasure to have him as a student…….This is facts for your Ass….Now let’s talk about you. From your tone and demeanor in your posts how many times have you been arrested or better yet where did you receive your education…I bet you are from a trailer park and are what many say “poor white trash.” Take a look at yourself before you judge a teenager who had his whole life ahead of him…….#Heisnotasuspect

    5. Let’s face the facts. Although there are a fair number of white Americans who stand for what is right, the conservatives (GOP) are the natural enemy of African-Americans. Black folk should also dismiss those who oppose the causes of Black folk like Bill Cosby and former President Jimmy Carter. These misguided “deniers of reality’ need a wake-up call by being blasted for their anti-Black remarks and sentiments.

    6. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the
      web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
