Sanford March Compares Trayvon to Jesus Christ
Newser ^ | Saturday, March 31, 2012 | Neal Colgrass

Posted on 03/31/2012 1:12:51 PM PDT by kristinn

(Newser) – Leaders from the NAACP and other groups led a massive crowd through the streets of Sanford, Florida, today to demand the arrest of George Zimmerman

SNIP

(From the Orlando Sentinel article Newser based their piece on):

SNIP

We want an arrest. Shot in the chest," marchers said en route to Sanford PD.

Outside police headquarters, the program began with NAACP national president Benjamin Todd Jealous introducing Brendan Mitchell, a youth leader within the organization.

"I am 17 years old. I'm a high school student. I'm a young black man," Mitchell said in a fiery speech that moved the crowd. "I could be the next Trayvon Martin."

Following a benediction comparing Trayvon's death to Jesus Christ's, local and state civil rights leaders addressed the crowd.

"We want a clean house at Sanford Police Department," said local NAACP President Turner Clayton, adding his Seminole County chapter has asked the city not to let Chief Bill Lee return.

Sorry, Holder's People, that's nowhere good as did for Lester Moore more than 100 years ago:

Here lies Lester Moore
Four slugs from a .44
No Les No Moore

How are we going to live with people like these? They are so ignorant that its embarrassing. They are "fellow human beings", I suppose.....and as such should have some sense, common or otherwise.....but...alas...there seems to be none in sight.

I am afraid that they want something else other than some kind of perverted justice for poor wittle innocent tike, Trayvon.

They want whitey blood....and nothing short of that will make them happy.

estimated 1,000 participants
Official ASJMC rules for Crowd Estimations:

1. Get good aerial imagery, break it into regions of similar density, measure the square footage of each region, apply a reasonable value for the density in each region, and then add the calculated number of people in each region back into a Total Estimate (TE).

2. Assign a Political Spectrum Value (PSV) to the message the crowd is trying to promote, with "Conservative" values ranging from .1 to .9 and "Liberal" values ranging from 2 to 10.

3. Multiply TE times PSV to get the Official Crowd Estimate (OCE).

4. Publicize the resultant OCE as the gospel on the subject.

So to take 2 examples: a Tea Party crowd of 10,000 people and a PSV of .1 results in an Offical Crowd Estimate of 1,000 while a Trayvon Martin rally with 100 people and a PSV of 10 results in an Official Crowd Estimate of 1,000.

With a little practice, such estimates can be made very quickly.

“Following a benediction comparing Trayvon’s death to Jesus Christ’s...”

The black church in America ceased to be a church years ago, and has become nothing more than an agitation society.

It still has the cant and carries the bibles; but no section of society supports abortion, gay rights, etc., more than does the black community. Jesus always comes in a poor to support for all of the above.

The march began at 11 a.m. at the Crooms Academy of Information Technology with an estimated 1,000 participants, including people who have been bused in from across the country.

I'm surprised the paper included the "rent a mob" aspect of this farce

Sharpton came to the podium amid raucous cheers, saying everything is on the table with regards to escalating peaceful civil disobedience.

Rev. Al baby... be really careful here... because this isn't NYC and the state isn't run by a bunch of wet panty liberals...you cause a riot in Florida and I'm sure Rick Scott amd Pam Bondi will hold you accountable... and have your racist ass arrested

He also talked about economic sanctions against the corporations that support and fund stand-your-ground laws.

Whoa...Hold it a minute... you are going to piss off Je$$e Jackson... racial racketeering corporatism is normally his gig...

This is more like the lynch mob that murdered Jesus. They are out to crucify George Zimmerman for the sake of their false social justice and racism.

You are right and I just found that out recently. Bitterness and hatred are sowed while 'their power/their rights' reigns. The TOTAL opposite of Christianity. Totally opposite of what Jesus taught and how HE is.

Somewhere in this computer, I have a picture of my then 10 year old daughter inside the coffin above that Les Moore tombstone at Knott’s Berry Farm in California.

The funny thing is, my wife was then working closely with an actual Les Moore at the Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego.
