If there were hundred, why do none of the pictures show more than maybe a dozen?

lots of empty space around the ones who were in the pic

Lots of printed signs, unlike the homemade jobbies of Tea Party rallies. Whose tax dollars paid for them?

I heard the SEIU was involved in the rallys—some of the usual suspects.

Oh..puhleze.. it is Saturday. That’s when racial tension heats up in Chicago.

Let’s see... rally for Trayvon or go around and prove my “creds” by shooting people. No choice, imho.

If these folks who have their knickers in a knot over Tray/Zimm start protesting black on black crime they might get my attention...and respect.

You get the usual suspects from all the lefty groups chiming in and showing up for any other lefty gathering. They swarm.

I wonder how many of those Chicago people they show in the pictures have had some of their own sons/nephews/grandsons killed in Chicago violence.

Another excuse to get out on the streets (can't leave ole Jesse J out there without an audience) and blame someone else for their self-imposed misery and loss of life in THEIR communities. Thug life is a chosen way of life..they all know it, and bs is all they know. The thing is WE ALL KNOW it's BS, and we're standing our ground. So they gather and make noise in downtown Chicago, and then go home to thuggin’ and killin’...they REFUSE to do anything about their punk kids who bring home the bacon each nite of drug and hold-up money and the proceeds of what they've stolen. All in a nights/days work. Listen to the Chicago police calls station online, and read the Chicago Police officers’ official blog. The truth in a nutshell each and every night.

Rainbow Push Coalition (jessie jackson jr); National Action Network (al sharpton), the usual suspects. The sign in the last image “BA Speaks: Revolution, nothing less” Pretty much says what these people have in mind.

I like the sign “Don’t shoot me I’m black and innocent”. Think I’ll get one that says “Don’t shoot, mug, rape, or burglarize me, I’m white and innocent. And I’m armed”....

Notice the photo showing the model family, women with “Afrocentric” names and two sons named “Fulton.” (Mr. Fulton obviously had other pressing engagements.)

The one boy is holding a sign reading “BA Speaks - Revolution, Nothing Less.”

The sign is a reference to a video production by Bob Avakian, long time Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party in America and someone who is closely tied to the Black Panthers.

Try to control your shock and surprise.

If you need to ask about the costs, C210N, you can't afford them.

In full seriousness: when the history of our times is written, it will include at least one chapter on the Democratic [sic] party's looting both the national, many state, and some local treasuries to advance its perverse causes and line its lord high practitioners' pockets. After we restore our lost constitutional republic, I believe we'll want to keep the national government on a very lean diet and very short leash.

Bring it on. These groups somehow believe they are 50 percent of the population. Bring on the "revolution" and they will soon find the truth.

“John Jacobs holds a sign questioning Florida’s “stand your ground” law during the “Justice for Trayvon” vigil organized by National Action Network’s Chicago.”

That’s mighty interesting, given that the Stand Your Ground defense played absolutely no role in Zimmerman’s trial or his acquittal.

BTW, National Action Network is Sharpton’s creation. Not that anyone is surprised by that.

Stunned, I tell you! Whoodathunkit?

Seriously, it has been my contention that the Communists have been neck deep in this from the get-go. It is an opportunity to attack the fundamental RKBA, and the unalienable right to self-defense. Thanks for confirming that.

All of the fellow travelers have been working 24/7 to push the meme of St. Trayvon of Skittles, the Martyr of Hoodie, who was mercilessly killed by the evil white hispanic Zimmerman, who hunted the poor little innocent wannabe gangsta down in the dark of night and slew him without cause.

Instead, they should put themselves in the position of being attacked in the night by a taller opponent, being on their back with a broken nose (and likely the sensation of being waterboarded) while someone plays midnight basketball with their head on the concrete as they scream for help. In their moments of fearing imminent death, they'd bust a cap in their assailant, too.

Unfortunately, perhaps, those who present the riot mongering meme think they are immune to such physical insult.

If the SHTF over this, they might find they are not as immune as they think.

IMHO, it is criminal the way they have distorted the facts of the case, and a violation of Zimmerman's Civil Rights to the presumption of innocence, and complete disrespect for the decision of the jury and our system of justice.

It is a call for mob rule from the Communists in our media, and they should be held accountable.

The guy with the gay flag is probably protesting Saint Skittles’ homophobia that made him attack Zimmerman because TM thought GZ was gay. Nah, I guess not.

While this took place in Chicago, how many blacks were shot by other blacks in the city without the glare of media attention? Talk about misplaced priorities.

Most all are pictures of one, two, or three protesters. Likely this means there wasn’t even a good shot where they could make it seem like hundreds or thousands.

This is the media’s basic weapon.

Ours: the USDOJ, Community Relations Service.

We must be constantly reminded of how white devils are the bane of human existence,
even if the only one involved in the Martin/ Zimmerman fiasco was a defense attorney.

If there were hundred, why do none of the pictures show more than maybe a dozen?

Because the turnout was lousy and that is going to make them angrier.

In St Louis they had a rally of about 200 people and announced there would be a rally following it in East St Louis.

It was hilarious -- the media showed a parade of cars driving to East St Louis but failed to mention that they were coming from the St Louis event.

And I’m sure Jesse would say there is nothing more painful for him than to look at the car next to him and see it is a white man and feel relief that he doesn’t have to lock the doors.

I wonder what effect a revised version of “Mommas Don’t Let Your Boys Grow up to be Trayvons” sung by a Willie Nelson soundalike would have on that crowd? Just ‘wonderin. Maybe if they’d focus on getting rid of their thug culture the’d get more respect.

Subject::How Neighborhood watches operate

And he gets his gun back (Actually, no he doesn’t)

Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts I’ve been listening to can’t seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage..The least they can do is get the facts out for tthe reason for the trial and its background instead of cope-ing with Obama moving the ball futhur and furthur away from what was done in a “Neighborhood Watch Area” while they’re milking the emotion response.routine like “big brother “does..
Like having local publications like the The New Amsterdam whatits follow like martinets, or is duped by the handouts of lies they’re getting from this government.

.For certain since the not guilty verdict has been rendered the facts of this case are still being concealed by the media such as not using pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins.

Many Neigborhood Watch areas consist of modest dwellings including the one Zimmerman was a “watch captain” in.. His was a mini US melting pot which includes a number of black families which banded together and set up patrols to protect their area. In this case they were struggling with single and groups of young blacks from other “hoods” on the prowl., In some instances armed, preying on homeowners in his area..Watch activities are closely co-ordinated with local police departments and follow very set protocols. Most conservative hosts demonstrate their ignorance.and are rendering no futhur information then their listeners get from MSM .thus allowing the MSM to set an agenda of distraction from this regimes history of corruption and scandal..

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3043817/posts

Usually such neighborhood watch areas are posted with a window or garden sign announcing that fact and those patrols will observe any one; black,white, green, or blue and sometimes even stop and question them. ..That fact and the area wasn’t even examinined by any of the so called media because it wouldn’t fit their agenda if true journalisim existed, because it couldn’t support any racial assertion. ..

It might even explain Zimmerman’s action taken during his surveilance of Martin because this watch volunteer got out of his car and continued his observation on foot because he lost sight of Martin. In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view they may leave their vehicle and continue surveilance on foot.. ....

According to the testimony there was an exchange after which Zimmerman was going back to his vehicle when Martin attacked him and was severly beating him to the extent he feared for his life. To put it bluntly Saint Trayvon was a smart ass punk who attacked a guy with a gun and got killed in the struggle over it when he had the guy on the ground.beating the hell out of him..

Obama in his latest attempt to move away threw more gas on the fire portraying by Saint Trayvon as what he was an irreponsible kid..That explains Bengahazi, where he left a top American diplomat and his aides die and the rest of his scandals Obama hopes his diatribes will hide. .

Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, (very quickly dismissed ?) and a dark skinned “hispanic”. Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a racist episode. Obama the boss of bosses and gets all the information about anybody ignored Zimmerman’s defence of a homeless black maltreated by a local police officer which resulted in the disciplining of the offending officer which Zimmerman fearlessly waged a campaign for. .

The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the exclusive “gated” neighborhood watch captain was a “white hispanic” . used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captain’s life.

Do not confuse todays politicians and their ahearants in the press and academia as followers of “Liberalism”. . These are die hard God denying I’m right you’re wrong socialists incapable of independent thinking running todays media.. Devising political campaigns of lies and manipulated inflamatory languange disguised as “news or reliable information” designed to destroy any opponent or group to what is edict-ed by their leader. You must wind up goose-stepping in unison protecting the collective otherwise we will through the use of government step on you and squash you like some insect..

Why is this being done ? Who accompained Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the president’s hand ? Seems like that could be considered pay back at US taxpayer expence. Isn’t that an impeachable offense ? Now if somebody even suggests this. What better way to discourage that by threatening riots in the streets ?

BTW Chicago does have “Neighborhood Watch Areas of its own and they operate the same way they do in Florida.
