Doesn’t it seem like the assholes who perpetrate offensives “always get away?” Heit kicks off this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory with an imitation of George Zimmerman, easily the most hated man in America right now.
Other topics include an update on the Trayvon Martin case, the Afghan war vet who claims Bank of America cheated him out of $25,000, U.S. imposing stricter Iranian sanctions, U.S. funding Syrian rebels, violence in Iraq at an all time low since the U.S. first invaded the country, the International Criminal Court’s targeting of Africans, Blacks faring better in court when they wear glasses, and a lighthearted discussion of miniature models that Heit & Cheri want to build.

- An update on the Trayvon Martin Case, including a look back at how all of Zimmerman’s family and friends have been destroyed while trying to defend his action of killing Trayvon Martin.
- Joe Oliver (Zimmerman’s “Black friend”) was handed his ass by Charles Blow on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.
- Frank Taaffee got destroyed by Soledad O’Brien, when he basically admitted that George Zimmerman was suspicious of Trayvon Martin because he was African American.
- Zimmerman’s attorney, Craig Sonner, also high-tailed it, bailing on his interview with Lawrence O’Donnell.
- Zimmerman’s father sat behind the screen and lied about George fearing for his life and being beaten almost to death by Trayvon.
- Zimmerman’s brother also tried to defend him, but Piers Morgan did a piss poor job of interviewing him, excluding any tough questions.
- Sanford Police station video was released showing Zimmerman with no apparent injuries. However, there are those who claim an enhanced video shows a bruise on the back of his head. Why can’t he just have a big block head? Can we really trust an altered video?
- Attempts have been made to disparage Trayvon martin, making him out to be a thug or unsavory individual.
- Leader of the New Black Panther Party was arrested for firearm possession in the wake of offering a $10,000 bounty for bringing in George Zimmerman.
- Weeks after the New Black Liberation Militia claimed they would attempt a citizen’s arrest of George Zimmerman, there’s still no arrest, nor any apparent attempts. Cheri got this one right…
- Will the Trayvon Martin case just fade to black with no real changes? David Banner remarked that it will take an event twice as big to garner future outcries of similar incidents of this magnitude.
- The picture of Trayvon in the hoodie has become a symbol that goes beyond the words that spell his name and his image. It’s taken on a much broader meaning than what this movement started with.
- An Afghan War veteran, John McDevitt, claims that Bank of America bilked him out of $25,000 in credit card charges he didn’t make, which means he won’t be able to afford his daughter’s wedding. Um, sounds like a first world problem to us!
- McDevitt’s getting attention because he’s picketing his local BoA branch who recommends that he take it up with the night club where the charges took place. We wouldn’t be surprised if the guy got drunk and bought rounds for everyone.
- Why didn’t BoA question a $25,000 hit on his credit card?
- Why should we care if he cannot pay for his daughter’s wedding? She better go down to the courthouse and get a marriage certificate and a civil service.
- We wonder whether the Afghan people can afford their own daughters’ weddings and what it must be like for them to live in an “occupied country.”
- Reports are that the violence in Iraq is the lowest since the U.S. first went in and started killing people. Perhaps this has A LOT to do with the fact that the U.S. finally ended their occupation of that country as of December 2011. Of course, the U.S. would prefer to insinuate that they contributed to the decline of violence in some other way than by simply leaving.
- The U.S. has announced that it will fund and send equipment to Syrian rebels, along with Arab states as well–as if the U.S. hasn’t already been funding that turmoil already.
- Speculation that the U.S. was already funding Assad, now they will be funding both sides.
- Explanation of why the U.S. would fund rebels in other countries.
- The hypocrisy of preaching non-voilent protest at home, yet supporting the funding of rebels in other countries. Is it that violence is justifiable when there’s a dictatorship in place versus a supposed democracy?
- Is there such a thing as a non-violent protest when the government uses an inordinate amount of force against the people?
- Many people don’t understand that the federal government sets up the conditions for the police to be able to enact brutality on the citizens.
- Hurricane Katrina is evidence of how the federal government says it is a local issue, but the federal government got involved and cracked down on the citizens there.
- The U.S. citizens are blinded by thinking that their own government is somehow different.
- After the U.S. funds the rebels, they can send in the drones/air support–before you know it, you’ll have another U.S. funded invasion.
- Invisible Children, creators of the Kony 2012 propaganda film, plans to release a sequel soon. They originally said April 3rd would be the launch date.
- Discussion of how people are still participating and supporting this organization despite them being exposed as a fraud.
- Invisible Children has released other videos since the one that went viral a few weeks ago.
- Discussion about how whatever “work” Kony 2012 is doing in Africa is not the work they said they’d be doing.
- Discussion of how people feel that they cannot disclose the true intent of expenditures when they are collecting money for a cause–even if they plan to do something good with the funds.
- U.S. announces that it will move forward with Iranian sanctions. Twelve countries must choose, by the end of June, whether they will continue to buy Iranian oil or do business with the U.S. Among the affected countries are China, India, South Korea, South Africa and others.
- Eleven countries are receiving an exemption from potential sanctions for their continued purchase of Iranian oil. Interestingly, it is the European countries that will receive the exemption.
- The U.S. is obviously bluffing when it comes to China. Of course they will continue to do business with China!
- India and China are using the loophole of bartering with Iran for oil in exchange for goods.
- Essentially the U.S.-imposed Iranian sanctions and threats of these countries is more proof of the U.S.’s intention to go to war with Iran. They are crushing their economy first, so that Iran won’t be able to fund their military.
- The countries exempt from the sanctions were white, while the ones having the exemptions imposed are “colored.” It always seems to happen this way.
- White Europeans and their countries are treated with preference, and it is these countries who are using capitalism to keep themselves in control of the world. They are banded together. It is a competition, and they are not trying to do what’s best for the world. It is an obvious conspiracy to maintain control and perpetuate the current power structure.
- The list of people indicted by the International Criminal Court consists of ONLY Africans–most likely rebels. Why is this? Sixty percent of African nations are ICC members–30% of the “court’s” makeup. It would seem as if Africans would have more control.
- The nations from which indicted individuals originate have a wealth of natural resources–Uganda, Sudan, Libya, and others. Oil and other resources in the area are an opportunity for Western businesses to come in. Also, African nations want a piece of the pie.
- Why is it that the U.S. doesn’t help the rebels overthrow the government, yet they will in other countries? There’s been just as much bloodshed and humanitarian need in these countries, yet little action is taken.
- The ICC is currently conducting investigations in Africa, South America, and parts of the Middle East.
- Is Russia in Europe or Asia? Take a look at a map. Unlike with other continents, this is clearly a man-made division.
- Palestine is being investigated by the ICC, yet Israel is not under investigation. Why not?
- It doesn’t matter what color the people at the top are, because they are complicit in the oppression of the masses of the people–whether they are brown, black, or whatever.
- European countries are clearly sticking together on the basis of race. That is their bond. African and Asian countries aren’t part of this bond, but they want to be. This is why they continue to try to assimilate into the mainstream culture.
- It woud be interesting to see what would happen if the African and Asian nations banded together and didn’t allow the invasion of Western countries–as an opposing force.
- China is trying to be an opposing force. They’re developing parts of the world on most continents, including Mexico and parts of Central and South America–in addition to Africa.
- People like to suggest that we should ignore race, yet the people in power operate based on race. It would be foolish not to consider race when evaluating world events when we know that those in power use race as a determining factor for so many things.
- Black defendants are seen as more honest and intelligent when they wear horn-rimmed glasses, according to a 2008 study. Glasses did not have the same effect with white defendants.
- Story of the Black and white Barbie dolls on sale. The Black doll was on clearance and the white one was not. Some people felt that this was a racial issue, one indicating value placed on the races themselves.
- Why do kids play with dolls?
- Controversy over the pregnant doll.
- Why aren’t there doll houses for boys?
- A discussion on model toys.
