Skip to comments.NAACP Claims Credit for Inciting Zimmerman Prosecution; Calls for Holder to Act
Posted on 07/15/2013 7:17:01 AM PDT by yoe
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) sent a message to supporters after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter Saturday evening, asking them to sign a petition urging the Department of Justice to initiate a civil rights prosecution, and reminding them that the NAACP shared responsibility for Zimmerman's arrest and prosecution over the death of Trayvon Martin.
[snip]Notably, the email did not say Zimmerman was prosecuted for any probable cause.
[snip] The petition linked in the email is hosted on the NAACP's website, and calls upon Attorney General Eric Holder, the nation's chief law enforcement officer, to charge Zimmerman for violating Martin's right to life: "We ask that the Department of Justice file civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman for this egregious violation. Please address the travesties of the tragic death of Trayvon Martin by acting today.
[snip] In any other circumstance, Zimmerman--a member of a minority group, a supporter of President Barack Obama, an activist for equal treatment by police--might have enjoyed the support and protection of the NAACP.
But because he was falsely characterized as "white," and the victim was clearly not, Zimmerman forfeited the right to equal treatment under the law, at least as far as the NAACP was concerned.

Don’t worry NAACP ,Holder is Judge shopping and when he finds the right lackey he’ll move on Zimmerman

Enough said !
I thought “mob rule “ was illegal and criminal
Whoda thunk .. !
GZ should make sure this group is at the top of his lawsuit list along with NBC and ABC
I hope Zimmerman’s lawyers take note and add the NAACP to their list of lawsuits.
0bama is just loving this...this is actually better than riots, because it can be turned into a festering, simmering stew of hate. Riots would, despite the destruction and probable loss of life, get some of the animus out.
Good, now GZ’s lawyers can sue the NAACP.
If there was a NAAWP these guys would s#!t all over themselves calling them racist.
has the NAACP looking into the gang connection of Mr. Parks? Now that the criminal case is over, should not attention be directed to the gang nature and history of the family?
Did Ms. Fulton already lose her son to the gangster life long ago and that is part of the reason for the divorce?
Bondi is just as ugly as corely.
Beauty is only skin deep.
Ugly goes staight to the bone.
They always choose a young blond idiot to do their work of presenting what they cannot......
Left: NAACP President Ben Jealous; Right: George Zimmerman
I think we need a National Association for the Preservation of American Culture.
There needs to be a petition calling for the DOJ to not off the crap.
What’s the ratio of how many white people marching would it take to make a bigger impression than blacks marching?
We need an NADWP....National Associationg for the Defense of White People.
Aw, I’ll bet his tanning salon membership has elapsed.
(the lightest-skinned “blacks” seem to yell the loudest)
[*very* good post!]
Change that to National Association for American Culture Preservation (NAACP) and you’ll really piss ‘em off. I like it!!
