Princeton University Orchestra, conducted by Michael Pratt, and the University Concert Jazz Ensemble will play the ‘Ballad for Trayvon Martin’ Thursday and Friday. Hmm, the purpose of this is to
exploit pay homage to victims of racial violence. You mean like the “killing fields” in Chicago?
Trayvon Martin continues to be a subject of intense interest for the academic elite. The Princeton University Orchestra and the University Concert Jazz Ensemble is set to debut “The Ballad for Trayvon Martin” today, NJ.com reports.
The goal of the music, according to its composer, noted jazz artist Anthony D.J. Branker, is to pay homage to victims of racial violence.
“I simply want to make a connection,” Branker said, “whether it’s on a level of social consciousness, or music and expression.”
The director of the jazz studies program at Princeton University has written a ballad for Trayvon Martin.
If you happen to be in the area, you can catch the world premiere of “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” Thursday and Friday night at Richardson Auditorium on the Ivy League campus.
Tickets are just $15 (and $5 for students), reports The Star-Ledger.
The composer, Anthony D.J. Branker, said he was moved “to the core” by the death of Martin in February 2012.
Martin, a 17-year-old black teenager, was shot by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old mixed-race Hispanic, in Sanford, Fla.
Branker, who founded Princeton’s jazz program 25 years ago, said the incident reminded him of an incident in his own life that occurred right after he graduated from the elite school.
“I was stopped by police at gunpoint because it was believed I broke into someone’s home,” he told The Star-Ledger. “I fit a profile. Police surrounded my car.”
Branker said the piece isn’t an angry musical screed. Noting that it incorporates a fugue and Brazilian style, he describes the jazz number as “a form of healing and something that could be seen as a composition of hope.”
Dinesh D’Souza Tweets about Obama: “I Am Thankful This Week When I Remember That America Is Big Enough and Great Enough to Survive Grown-Up Trayvon In the White House!”
Just days before Thanksgiving Dinesh D’Souza tweets what he is thankful for and goes there …
Dinesh D’Souza tweeted, “that I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!” Oh boy, you know this is going to evoke a complete unhinged response from the LEFT. They will be calling him a vile racists and a “WHITE” Indian. In 2012, D’Souza released ’2016: Obama’s America,’ a film based on his 2010 book ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage’. Hmm, doesn’t D’Souza understand that only Obama can compare himself to Trayvon, if anybody else does they are race-baiting, racist swine.
And the LEFT did not disappoint as the social media on the LEFT went mental.
Hmm, a grown-up Trayvon Martin in the White House. Having covered the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin murder trial and the events that led up to the case including the death and three-ring media circus, hell-bent on getting a pound of racist flesh from “white” Hispanic, George Zimmerman,” and having covered this disastrous presidency of Barack Obama, there are many things to be thankful for, I am not sure if I would have worded it quite as Dinesh D’Souza did. Although to be fair to him, it was Barack Obama who interjected himself into the Zimmerman-Martin case before he knew any of the facts of the case. But when did facts or the truth ever get in the way of Barack Obama? It was actually Obama who first made the comparisons to Trayvon, but playing the race card is perfectly okay. It was Barack Obama who said, “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” after he could not accept the jury verdict that found George Zimmerman “not guilty” in the murder of Trayvon.
However, what should have been said was the following … “I AM THANKFUL THIS WEEK WHEN I REMEMBER THAT AMERICA IS BIG ENOUGH AND GREAT ENOUGH TO SURVIVE BARACK OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE”.
America better hope it is big enough and great enough to do so because Obama has caused such great division, dissension and desperation among the people. Obama has devastated the economy and the will of people. Obama has spent us into oblivion at $17 trillion and counting. And if allowed Obama is going to destroy the insurance industry as we know it and in turn further wreck the US economy forever. Let this be a lesson to America, do not ever, ever, ever elect a socialist community agitator president, I could care whether he looked like George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin or Steve Martin.

Another alleged crime, another judge and another judge for George Zimmerman …
George Zimmerman posts bail in his domestic violance case and is told by judge that the conditions of his bail are as follows: that he cannot go to two Florida addresses; he cannot have contact with the accuser, Samantha Scheibe; he cannot possess weapons; he must wear a monitoring device; and he cannot travel outside Florida.
A Florida judge on Tuesday set bail for George Zimmerman at $9,000 and ordered a number of conditions for his freedom — including that he not possess weapons — while he awaits trial on charges he pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend.
He was released from the John E. Polk Correctional Facility on Tuesday afternoon. He didn’t speak with the media. It was unclear where he was headed.
Zimmerman was arrested Monday at his girlfriend’s Apopka home, four months after he was acquitted of murdering teenager Trayvon Martin.
Earlier, Zimmerman said little as a judge, during Zimmerman’s first appearance Tuesday afternoon in Seminole County court, said he found probable cause for Zimmerman’s arrest on a felony charge of aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of domestic violence battery and criminal mischief. Zimmerman’s arraignment has been scheduled for January 7.
George Zimmerman Arrested and Charged with Felony Aggravated Assault After Pointing a Shotgun at His Girlfriend Samantha Scheibe … 911 Calls
HE’S BACK … George Zimmerman just can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
George Zimmerman has been charged with felony aggravated assault with a weapon after he had allegedly pointed a shot gun at his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, during a domestic incident at her home. Zimmerman was also charged with two misdemeanors, domestic violence battery and criminal mischief. Zimmerman was arrested at approximately 1 pm Monday by the Seminole County police , after they responded to a disturbance call in Apopka in Central Florida at a residence that Zimmerman had been living in with his girlfriend. Zimmerman is being held in jail without bail and will make his first appearance in front of a judge Tuesday at 1:30 pm.
George Zimmerman was charged Monday with felony aggravated assault after allegedly pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend, according to Dennis Lemma, chief deputy with the Seminole County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office.
Zimmerman, who was acquitted earlier this year of murdering teenager Trayvon Martin, was arrested after the incident at the home of Samantha Scheibe, Lemma said. He also was charged with two misdemeanors — domestic violence battery and criminal mischief — in connection with the same incident, Lemma said.
Zimmerman is being held in jail without bail and will make his first appearance in front of a judge Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. ET.
UPDATE I: 911 Call from Samantha Scheibe.
Hmm, Zimmerman mentioned in his 911 call that his girlfriend was pregnant with his child.
According to the arrest report, after Scheibe told Zimmerman to pack his things, he “cocked the shotgun” before putting the two guns in one case. She told deputies he then became upset as she carried his belongings out and he took out the shotgun. Scheibe said she was going to call police, and Zimmerman pointed the weapon at her for a minute and “asked her if she really wanted to do that.”
Zimmerman then smashed a glass-top coffee table with the gun butt and ordered Sheibe out, she told deputies. He pushed her out and locked the door.
Sanford, FL To Ban Neighborhood Watch From Carrying Guns in the Wake of George Zimmerman Being Found Not Guilty in Death of Trayvon Martin
Imagine what would have happened if there was no gun
The city of Sanford, FL is going to ban neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns following the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Well that makes all the sense in the world that a man was found not guilty of committing a crime in a court of law by a jury of his peers and Sanford is basically going to act as if he was guilty. As stated at Legal Insurrection, Zimmerman successfully and lawfully defended himself against an attacker and possible real harm, maybe even death and Sanford passes a law banning neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns.
The city of Sanford is making major changes to its neighborhood watch program, including banning volunteers from carrying guns while on patrol, and forbidding them from pursuing anyone in their neighborhoods. Just curious, what are they allowed to do, watch the thugs rob, beat and kill people?
Pic Hat Tip – Legal Insurrection
Just months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Florida city where the incident occurred intends to ban neighborhood watch members from carrying guns, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
The ban on guns in Sanford, Fla. comes amid other changes, including formal training and volunteer registration, which will be announced in full at a meeting Nov. 5 at City Hall. Residents acting in a neighborhood watch role are also not to follow someone they deem suspicious, according to MSN News.
I am sure thugs, robbers and thieves are just wetting themselves with this news. So let’s understand this, if you are a neighborhood watch volunteer you can’t carry a gun, but if you are not, you can. Boy, there is some logic for you.
YIKES, Two Florida Men Dressed Up As George Zimmerman & Trayvon Martin For Halloween Complete with Blackface & Blood-Stained Hoodie
The Do’s and Dont’s of Halloween costumes … I am going to go out on a limb and say this one would be a DON’T!!!
Anything for a laugh … Two Florida men dressed up as George Zimmerman and Travyon Martin for Halloween on Friday night. They declared the costumes “hilarious” on a Facebook post, which was since been deleted. Go figure. Happy Halloween from George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin the caption of a photo posted on a friend’s Facebook page. In the picture, one man is wearing a shirt with “neighborhood watch” on it as he holds his fingers looking like a gun pointed to the other man’s head. The man dressed like Trayvon is wearing black face and a blood stained hoodie. Really folks? SICK!!! What, no Skittles or Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail?
Is there a crime for poor taste?
As stated at Mediaite, some Facebook posters took exception to the pic and post and it was eventually taken down. Guess it was not so funny after all, eh? This further proves my theory that everyone serves a purpose in life, these three are here to serve as a bad example.
Image via Facebook
A pair of Florida men decided to celebrate Halloween this year by dressing up as George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, complete with blackface and blood-stained hoodie.
The image of the duo (click to enlarge) was uploaded Friday to the Facebook page of Caitlin Cimeno, a Martha’s Vineyard native who captioned the photo “Happy Halloween from Zimmerman & trayvon.” Cimeno, flanked in the photo by the two men, followed those words with a smiley face emoticon.
Greg Cimeno, 22, portrayed Zimmerman, complete with a “Neighborhood Watch” t-shirt. Cimeno lives in Cape Coral, Florida, where he appears to work for a carpentry firm.
William Filene, 25, dressed up as Martin, covering his face in black paint and donning a gray sweatshirt with a single bullet hole surrounded by fake blood. Filene, who also lives in Cape Coral, was arrested in June for felony auto theft. His rap sheet also included collars for loitering/prowling and failing to register an automobile.
George Zimmerman Pulled Over for the THIRD Time by Police Since Acquitted for Murder Charges in Death of Trayvon Martin
As the Daily Mail reports … So much for George Zimmerman keeping a low profile after his acquittal for murder charges in the death of Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman was pulled over for the third time since his his “not guilty” verdict of murder charges. This time police stopped him in Brevard county, FL and given a written warning dated August 19, 2013 at 11:06 a.m., from FHP, Zimmerman had improper tag display on his Honda truck and that his vehicle’s excessive tint needed to be corrected. Zimmerman told the police that he had installed the heavy tinting because he had been receiving death threats since being acquitted of murder.
George Zimmerman was pulled over by police for the third time since his acquittal, it emerged today.
Zimmerman was stopped by Florida Highway Patrol troopers in Brevard County on August 19 just after 11am.
He received a written warning for having an improper tag display on his Honda truck and was told the window’s excessive tint needed to be corrected.
He told the trooper he installed it after he was acquitted because he had been receiving death threats.
Fox News has the other two incidents:
Since being acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin in July, Zimmerman has been pulled over twice prior to this for speeding — once in Texas and once in Lake Mary.
He was let off with a warning in the Texas incident and fined $256 in the latter.
Damn, how many times is this dude going to continue to pop up in the news? One would think he would want to melt into society and never be head from again, for his own sake. Who would have ever thought that Casey Anthony would have done a better job of keeping out of the public sight than George Zimmerman?
Liberal Comedian Bill Maher Criticized Obama Intervention in Syria … U.S. is Looking “More like George Zimmerman” than World Police
Liberal comedian Bill Maher slapped back at Barack Obama and his handling of the Syrian crisis and stated that U.S. is looking less like the World police and “More like George Zimmerman.” Ouch, that is going to leave a mark from the far LEFT.. Would that mean that Obama’s handling of Syria is racist? Maher went on to say, “we’re the only nation, as we’ve have seen in this Syrian fiasco, who threatens to drop bombs on you while telling you we don’t want to get involved.”
Liberal comedian Bill Maher said Friday the U.S. is looking “more like George Zimmerman” with regards to military force and criticized arguments over intervention in Syria.
“Forget the Syria debate, we need a debate on why we’re always debating whether to bomb someone. Because we’re starting to look not so much like the world’s policeman, but more like George Zimmerman. Itching to use force and then pretending it’s because we had no choice,” Maher said on his HBO program “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
Maher, who has been critical of President Barack Obama’s case to intervene in Syria, continued to condemn military force.
More from The Hinterland Gazette:
Maher asked, “How did we inherit this moral obligation to bring justice to the world via death from above?” “It doesn’t make any sense. Our schools are crumbling and we want to teach everyone else a lesson.”
