From Hot Air: The war on women drags on.
The essay is great, but the comments are the most entertaining.

One particularly salient section:
Several months ago, after a review of the then-available evidence, I concluded that George Zimmerman was innocent. New evidence, recently released by the trial judge, supports the fact that George Zimmerman is the victim of a liberal racist lynch mob.
There is no doubt in my mind that Zimmerman is the main victim here and that President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Al Sharpton, special prosecutor Angela Corey, Sanford detective Chris Serino, and a host of others are prominent members of this shameful multiracial lynch mob.
In my previous article, I pointed out that I have investigated many cases of racial violence and police brutality, and have documented, in official federal reports, that many such awful events have indeed taken place in this country. Yet Zimmerman’s case did not have any of the features of those other incidents of racial brutality.
As we said in these pages, the entire Zimmerman fiasco was the result of the efforts of the new, real racists of the 20th and 21st Centuries: the Race Grievance Industry. When they heard “George Zimmerman,” they thought: “White guy kills unarmed black teen!” and they salivated with glee.
Read it well: no one on earth was happier to see Trayvon Martin dead than the RGI.
Then — Oops! — all of a sudden, it was a “POC*” who had done it!
All of a sudden, presto changeo, George Zimmerman became a “white hispanic!” A race never before seen in America or on the face of the earth before, and the New York Times decided that he was one. First mention of the newly-minted race? In the august pages of the Times after it was discovered that Zimmerman was not, in fact, white. Hence, he had to become white.
* — Person Of Color. George Zimmerman is hispanic.
We’re not the only ones saying it either.

Here’s a snippet from the piece:
An identity defined in terms of victimhood needs fresh injections of oppression to sustain its existence. Those African-Americans who define “blackness” not in terms of positive values but in terms of negative values, need white racism, the real thing or the fake one, to remind them of who they are. And the same holds true for other oppressed minorities who define themselves not by their culture or values; but by their resentments.
You absolutely could not describe the RGI better than: “defined in terms of victimhood,” and defining themselves “not by their culture or values, but by their resentments.”
We called them “Race Addicts” and we debated them on their own turf in a ground-breaking series on this blog. Daniel Greenfield now rolls back the curtain a bit more on these charlatans, mountebanks, frauds and hoaxers.
