Sharpton emcees racially-focused Sanford rally, warns against use of violence [Treyvon Martin]
Daily Caller ^ | 23 MAR 12 | By Matthew Boyle

Posted on 03/23/2012 6:14:31 AM PDT by DCBryan1

SANFORD, Fla. — The Rev. Al Sharpton, an MSNBC host and liberal political figure, riled up a mostly-black Sanford, Fla., crowd on Thursday night in the wake of the killing of 17-year-old student Trayvon Martin.

“Some people said to me in the media — ‘Let me get this straight,’ they said. ‘Reverend, it seems like there’s a lot of people who are angry — are you afraid of violence?’” Sharpton preached to the central Floridian crowd. “I said, ‘No. I’m afraid of the violence you already had.’”

“Violence is killing Tray Martin,” Sharpton continued. “Don’t act like we are the ones [who are] violent. We didn’t shoot nobody.”

Despite his harsh rhetoric, Sharpton warned the thousands in attendance to avoid resorting to violence at all costs as the Martin case progresses. “I want our people to understand that how you behave is going to be a reflection on this case,” Sharpton instructed the crowd. “[No matter] how angry we get, don’t let them make you act in a way that they will say, ‘see, that’s what to think with Trayvon.’”

“We are going to act intelligent,” Sharpton said.

WOW! if the black community reacted like this for black on black crime? the innocent kids and adults in the black community would feel safe.

Why is black life only precious when someone is the community is killed by a white or hispanic as opposed to another black?

Sharpton won’t let anything stop him from getting publicity, even his mother’s death a few hours earlier.

Yup

Maybe there has been and I've missed it, but it seems odd-ish not to have seen anything here re local hispanic reaction.

I'd have especially thought that FReepers in the area might've found it postworthy.

.

While the Zimmerman ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by ‘African Americans’ in Oklahoma just the other day?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten, his jaw broken, shot in the face with a BB gun and now barely clings to life.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was raped and beaten to death.

.

There’s a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with BB gun?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage

Where is the outrage?

Had an interesting conversation about that just last night with a couple who themselves are Hispanic. As far as the Hispanic community is concerned, he’s white. There were some laughs as they tried to Hispanicise the name Zimmerman with several prefixes and suffixes though.

So don’t get your hopes up. The Hispanic community is rejecting this guy’s claims. If it turns out he doesn’t even speak Spanish, then no chance at all.

“Don’t act like we are the ones [who are] violent.

And here we get to the heart of the issue because it's statements like this that set the stage for an incident like this to happen. It gives moral justification for violent reactions to perceived animus. By his rhetoric, Sharpton has just created a whole new generation of Trayvon Martins, convinced that they should strike rather than negotiate in disputed social circumstances, which is probably what really happened in Sanford.

Nobody want to know the facts about this case and nobody cares. All that matters is, how do you explain the violent reactions within the Black community, that everybody knows is true, without indicting it. No less than cultural pride is on the line here.

This could escalate very quickly and very dangerously if people don;t come to their senses soon, which doesn't seem to be happening, especially since the media is willfully fueling it. The Police Chief in Sanford no doubt has already figured this out which is probably why he temporarily stepped down. He senses the seriousness of where this can go, and where it's heading already.

People are right, it's going to be a long hot summer....

And the reason Obama has avoided touching this case with a ten foot pole. When asked about it his press secretary gave some response to the effect of "This is a local matter therefore we have no official position, we send out condolences to those involved." (which is amazingly, exactly what he should have said, but if this had been a Republican president he would be destroyed in the media and the black community for such a weak response.)

I somehow get the feeling Sharpton would not have been attracted to this case if Mr. Martin had been an innocent victim. It’s not an accomplishment for Al unless he can lie; maybe it proves for him that he is stronger than the truth.

What if the race of each person involved were reversed.

Al and his race hustlers would have demonized the dead white kid for attacking an innocent black guy just out protecting his neighborhood.

It’s all about the color of the skin no matter the circumstances according to Non-Rev Sharpton and his race hustlers.

It actually happened a few years back on Long Island, with the John White case. A black father confronted a gang of drunken white teanagers who came to his house in the middle of the night to attack his son over a bogus online “rape” threat. One of them was particularly aggressive, slapping at or grabbing for (depending upon who you believe) his gun and he shot him to death.

Sharpton rallied in favor of Mr. White, who was convicted on gun and manslaughter charges and spent a couple of years in prison.

I strongly supported John White in that case, and based upon what I know so far, I support Zimmerman though I would like more evidence about exactly what happened.

Sharpton, on the other hand, supports black men who protect themselves against violent white teens (and rightfully so), but condemns hispanic men who protect themselves against violent black teens.

The other thing that really irks me is that Sharpton stated, “”We are tired of going to jail for nothing and others going home for something.”

First, this is not a case where someone “went to jail for nothing”.

More importantly, if Al Sharpton and his crew were really upset of killers of black people “going home for something” their number one focus would be on ending the “Stop Snitching” movement that is being pushed by certain elements in the black population.

Hundreds if not thousands of murderers of black people are “going home for something” because young people are being indoctrinated that it is morally wrong to help the police put murderers in jail. Even if we assume Zimmerman was a racist, monster who killed Martin in cold blood (clearly not the case) such crimes are extremely rare, but black on black murders are all too common.

I hope the media and the racial demagogues don't manage to build this up to the point of Rodney King-style riots (53 dead).

Al Sharpton ran for President in 2004--he would have been the Democrat nominee if the Democrats weren't such racists that they put a couple of less-qualified white guys on the ticket instead. /s

Geraldo was on "Fox & Friends" this morning talking about this--while not excusing Zimmerman, he mostly denounced the wearing of "hoodies" (because so often criminals holding up stores or mugging people are wearing them, that someone wearing one might appear threatening even if he wasn't armed, as Treyvon turned out not to be).

If 25,000 white people showed up to seek justice for the elderly OK couple, or the child who was doused in gasoline and set afire, or any of a number of brutal black-on-white crimes, the media would describe them as a lynch mob.

This will be a long hot summer.

Once the information begins to trickle down to the race baiters that accused shooter George Zimmerman was of Latino descent and not a white demon as is the popular perception, I think the fomenters will begin to back off a certain amount and refrain from creating a racial long hot summer.

Probably not. It's been my observation in the past that Blacks and Hispanics do not particularly get along well together. Meanwhile, the frustration level in both groups is growing because of the bad economy.

I think we are setting on an ever more dangerous power keg that can be touched off at almost any minute by almost anything.

Just what we needed!! Al Sharpton,racist puke, liar, fraud and anti American, to call for justice in the florida teen case. Quite an example of honor that Sharpton, lest we forget his Tawanah Brawley involvement, his tax evasion, combined with his racist and anti gay rhetoric. This bum is on the path to run for President.
