Civil-rights activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson took the microphone moments ago at the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Eatonville, where he is preaching about the tragedy of Trayvon Martin's killing.

Dressed in a dark gray suit and blue tie, Jackson began his address with a chant: "Stop the violence. Save the Children. Keep hope alive!"

Jesse Jackson is wrong. And his inflammatory comments might come back to bite him.

''There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life,'' Jesse Jackson said several years ago, ''than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery -- and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.''

If I were to say in a open forum what I thought of Jackson. It would take a team from the JPL and an Atomic clock to time my banning...

Jesse is well on his way to inciting a race riot.

Look, there's so much disinformation about this incident. The LAST thing we need is Jesse Jackson's completely ill-informed race-baiting.

If there was a hole in the BACK of Trayvon's head, don't you think the coroner would have "noticed"?

And don't you think that the racist, pro-Hispanic prosecutor would have at least "held" Zimmerman?

I don't care how pro second amendment you are, that would be damning.

All these blind idiots are going to do is create more hatred. Jackson is a lying race baiter.

Jackson is going to stir-up the Skinheads, the neo-nazis and the KKK. This is going to get very ugly.

He is not wrong he is deliberately lying, and no, he will not get bit by it. But the Santorum clique will be here soon to gawk and declare that this "new fact" just shows Rick was right about Zimmerman's mental condition at the time of the shooting.

But Jackson told the crowd at the church, "Zimmerman told police he had killed him. Shot him in the back of the head in self-defense."

Let's see if the national/Florida media call Jackson out on this apparent LIE.

These people act like we are still living in the 60’s. The nation has moved on but they are doing their best to take us back. They should be arrested for inciting violence.

His remark conflicts with previously published information.

I am so shocked that Je$$e Jackson doesn't have his facts right. /s

And his inflammatory comments might come back to bite him.

What is to be expected of a person who would rush to the scene of Dr. Martin Luther King's death and smear blood on his white shirt and then parade for the cameras and proclaim the next day, "He died in my arms"?

Not to worry.......

I'm sure Holder is currently in the process convening a task force to investigate this rabble-rouser.

Yeah, all 37 of them....

Violence is MUCH more likely to come from Jackson’s side from the legions of chip-on-shoulder, in your face, racist blacks.

Well, with all the news coming out of Mexico for the past few years, I would think that Hispanics will not respond to any attempts to harm Zimmerman in a friendly way. It might be one of those “Be careful what you wish for...” experiences for Jackson and his friends.

THIS:
"'If it's a moment, we go home. If it's a movement, we go to war.'"

is the quote we should be paying very close attention to. VERY CLOSE... because it is being repeated over and over in black churches, on streetcorners, in black neighnorhoods, and rallies all over this country.
The lies grow more outrageous. The hot coals of anger are stoked. The rage enflames and goes all out of proportion, and it is orchestrated, deliberate, and malicious.
If someone declares WAR on you, believe it. When someone tells you they are going to kill you. BELIEVE IT.
Anyone who thinks this can just go away now, even if the truth is completely opposite of everything the media had thrown out there, think again.
Honest and decent black people who want no part of his will be too afraid to speak up or speak out. Murder is coming. To them and to us.

…there is power in the blood of the innocent."

Oh do tell, Jesse.

His hypocrisy knows no bounds.



Where there's a shell, there's a way.

25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
Today we have Obama, no cash, and no hope!

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you can get raw with these strings.

How about this gamechanger from America's Got Talent (which they SHOULD have won).

And finally, this, dedicated to the one and only rdb2, whose eyes are growing dim.

Either way, the violin is sweet yet LETHAL.

Do it!

“If it’s a movement, we go to war.”
From anyone else this would be intimidation.
From Jesse, it’s just warm horse droppings.

Copyright restrictions imposed by Orlando Sentinel require all of their material to be properly excerpted and linked.

Yet in this thread you bypassed the copyright restrictions and posted the complete article by using a webcache link instead of using a direct working link to the article.

We had to manually excerpt the article for you.

Always use a working link to the actual article rather than using a search or web cache link as you did for this thread resulting in your bypassing Free Republic's auto-excerpt program and violating Free Republic's copyright restrictions.

Also you have been posting complete articles as photo images which also violate copyright restrictions imposed upon Free Republic.

Please do not post photo images of any articles again.

Thank you.

The more information that comes out, the more it appears that the main tragedy here is what is being done to Zimmerman.
