Stevie Wonder declares he is boycotting Florida and the 21 other states with ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws after Zimmerman’s acquittal

idiot

Daily Mail: Music legend Stevie Wonder has announced that he won’t perform again in Florida again until the state’s notorious ‘Stand Your  Ground’ law is repealed. His decision follows the outrage by other celebrities and performers at the acquittal of neighborhood vigilante George Zimmerman

The singing legend made his statement at a  show in Quebec City, Canada, over the weekend.

He said: ‘I decided today that until the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again. As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.’

He continued: ‘The truth is that for those of you who’ve lost in the battle for justice, wherever that fits in any part of the world, we can’t bring them back.

‘What we can do is we can let our voices be heard. And we can vote in our various countries throughout the world for change and equality for everybody. That’s what I know we can do.’

Under the ‘Stand Your Ground Law’ a person is able to use deadly force if they fear their life is under threat. Florida officials have repeatedly said they  will not consider scrapping the controversial law.

Zimmerman,29, was cleared of the second  degree murder of Trayvon Martin after a trial that divided America. He has gone into hiding amid death  threats.

Outrage over the Zimmerman verdict has led to  an outpouring of anger on the streets of many US cities.

Black performers have used Twitter to express their anger that Zimmerman was not held accountable for the death of Trayvon  Martin in Sanford, Florida.

Stars such as Jay-Z, Beyonce, A Tribe Called  Quest and Q-Tip are among those who’ve dedicated live performances to the late  teenager.

Since George Zimmerman’s controversial  acquittal, civil rights groups and leaders have called for legal action against  the neighborhood watch volunteer.

On Sunday, in a move which could have  dramatic ramifications, the Justice Department confirmed today that it will look  into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal  prosecutors should file criminal charges against George Zimmerman in the wake of  his acquittal.

Read the rest here.

Poor Stevie Wonder, doesn’t he even realize the Stand Your Ground Law wasn’t even involved in this case?

How self-important does he think he his that state lawmakers will now change their laws just because of his personal opinion? What an ego…

No great loss and the same for all those rappers that rap about the drink to get high called “lean” or “purple”or a few other things, made from watermelon tea, skittles or assorted candies, and cough syrup.
Maybe they should look into TMs history of violence, thuggery, and stealing.

Well then, if only all States had Stand Your Ground laws. I’m sick of our society’s celebrity culture. We ascribe far too much importance to such trifling people, most of whom are blithering idiots responsible for much of our cultural rot and decline.

Anybody hear about Eric Holder’s new DOJ website asking for any leads with which to further harass George Zimmerman? Please feel free to tell the fascist bastards what you think. I did!

“Huck Folder!” He is guilty of many crimes, the latest of which is incitement to riot.

Here’s the link.

They are all a bunch of frauds. Every single one. Where is the outrage for people in Chicago who can’t defend themselves. They don’t care about anyone. Their objective is the same as Obama, to disarm America.

Thinking about Stevie Wonder, I just can’t wrap my mind around the idea that he is even currently relevant in todays world. Yes, he was a mover and shaker in the music world, during the 60’s and 70’s, possibly into the 80’s, but in todays music world, I would highly doubt that the people who are purchasing music, i.e. young people, would be purchasing music being produced by him. He is to all intents and purposes, unfortunately, a star which has started its downward spiral.

With liberals, it doesn’t matter if Stand Your Ground wasn’t involved because Cute Li’l Travyon (TM) died and, gosh, self-defense is racist and bad like guns and must be banned for “social justice” so rainbows and unicorns abound, so there… (don’t forget Looting 4 Trayvon! or whatever else justified stealing stuff after the acquittal, too).
