Yeah when I was in college we used to use the two shot cough syrup samples they gave us in the welcome package to get boozy with when we were broke. If rich white kids were doing it then, I cannot really judge Martin on that aspect of it.

I actually didn't really know anything about the social media stuff or texts. I also didn't know he had some liver damage. I wonder if Dr. Bao remembers that.... ;)

By now, I'll bet he doesn't even remember who Trayvon Martin is.

This video is riddled with opinion and errors that are just as bad if not worse than what he is alleging. Some of what he is saying is valid, but most is partisan tripe.

Just off the top, the picture of Trayvon with his two middle fingers extended isn't a picture of the kid who got shot by Zimmerman. And it goes on and on and on, I don't even want to justify this guy or his video with more of my time.

Bill Whittle reports on the truth as seen by those on the far right.

I don't like the guy,his message, or his style.

I can appreciate you not wanting to waste your time, and the sooner our society realizes TM was a thug, a kid into drugs, guns, fighting, gangs and theft the sooner we as a society can do the Bama and "move on"

Obviously you don't like anyone you don't agree with and won't hear any facts that you don't like. What fact did he assert that is true to the far right and not true to you?

Why do TM supporters have such a hard time realizing the kid was a wannabe thug?

It must be nice to be able to define truth by how well it aligns with your political ideology.

I think there is a reason you don't like this guy, his message or his style. Can we say..."Hack"? (and I'm not talking about Mr. Whittle)

Ahhh, another person who hasn't actually read Ms texts, and gets all his information from other people.

You might want to look into what you're repeating. It sounds pretty foolish as an interpretation of the ACTUAL evidence.

Bill Whittle is a very intelligent man and with an elegant exposition .
I do however find the fact that he supported people like sarah palin to display a bit of partisanship on his behalf. And i don't think partisanship is a desirable feature. So that's his only downside which weights down on his capacity for delivering a good, factual show.

This is the first time I've ever seen the guy, so I don't know what he's said about Palin...or anything else. Perhaps that is what enables me to watch this video and appreciate the reality in what he says. I mean, don't you think he is correct when he says that the big media screwed this whole thing up? That they did it on purpose?

I think the media really damaged their credibility in the eyes of all but those who blindly follow their words.

He basically supports Palin and thought she was a great candidate. Same for Michelle Bachmann. Both of which are complete idiots. You have to be a bit blind to ignore these things, most likely blindness induced by partisanship.

I do appreciate what he says and he is spot on. But since the guy has shown partisanship so that makes me cautious about what he says. It's not that I am dismissing him, I am just not going to take his word on anything he says and leave it at that, especially when it comes to politics, because he has an agenda.

But he is a great guy.

Palin is a non-issue for me...and I don't even care about Bachmann...whoever the hell she is. Frankly, the fact that you bring up these two people, who have nothing to do with this topic, shows that YOU are the one who is being affected by partisanship.

Now...since you agree with the Whittle, why not just leave it at that? Heck, I don't just take anyone's word on anything without a reasoned consideration of what he is saying...but I won't go back to stuff that he said before about a completely different topic...especially when I don't know about it.

It's kind of my ex-wife, when we were married...having a discussion and she starts bringing up all kinds of things from the past. I didn't like it from her...and I don't like it from anyone else.

I am not saying that Palin and Bachmann are issues. I am saying that by hearing him support these 2 bozos, my partisanship-senses started to tingle.

I doubt I'm partisan. I've never been partisan in my entire life.

You seem to be awfully defensive of Whittle. Can't bear to hear any criticism of him no matter how light.
What's wrong? man-crush or just a case of the "if you're with me 100% you're against me"?

This photo has as much "truth" as Bill Whittle's presentation:

LOL!!

Now you are the one being defensive, eh? Someone criticizes you for bringing up non-issues to diminish what Whittle has to say and you respond by attacking. Okay...whatever floats your boat.

In any case, I would welcome some kind of criticism of what Whittle says on this topic...other than what he's said on other topics. In other words, agree with or dispute what he says. Don't bring up what he said about some other topic nobody cares about. You know...avoid the ex-wife factor, eh?

I didn't bring the "ex-wife" factor for no reason. I brought it up to give a heads up to people, not in regards to this current video, since I did say it was good, but in relation to the guy himself.

You on the other hand put on the "Whittle Defense League" T-shirt and decided to attack me on issues that are none of your damn business. I think you have a man-crush on him.

It does... I didn't realize that Zimmerman was black, and Martin was white...

I suggest you look up the words "speculation", "assumption", "fact", "opinion" and "truth"... Then get back to us, ok?
