Jesse Jackson: Boycott Florida Over 'Stand Your Ground'
US News & World Report ^ | July 26, 2013 | Elizabeth Flock

Posted on 07/27/2013 12:23:41 PM PDT by kevcol

"We can boycott Florida, cut conventions in Florida, for its 'stand your ground' laws," said Jackson, speaking on a panel at the National Urban League's annual conference in Philadelphia. "If we can boycott South Africa and bring it down, we should boycott Florida and bring it down."

Meanwhile, "the nation's oldest and largest association of African American lawyers and judges" is having their annual convention in Florida next week...still. Trayvon's parents are speaking at it.

Well, they’ll still stiff the waiters and waitresses, so no windfall for them.

I agree with Jesse. All blacks should leave Florida and move to peaceful places like Detroit and Chicago and DC.

All these people do is hold “conventions”. Do any of them work?

When Jesse Jackson was little, living in SC, his mother used to put a pork chop around his neck so the dogs would play with him.

I wonder if Tamara Holder knows about this..?

Never listened to Jackson before - why listen to him know...I know my CCP is good in FL - so, I’ll continue to go there for vacation....and those that support people like Jackson - if they don’t go - then that’s better for everyone! Win-Win situation....

I’m ok with playing the boycott game. Let’s boycott those states that don’t respect the 2nd amendment. And let’s not stop there, let’s boycott those cities that have the highest murder rates against blacks, such as Chicago. And take it a step further to those places that exhibit racial preferences. Guess who will win that game?

YES! Please Jesse, boycott Florida, and anywhere I am likely to be

Some reporter called Rihanna to ask why she was boycotting Fla. She said, “What? I AM? News to me.” LOL

It would be interesting to see a list of all the big-time businesses who fund Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. I have heard they are very wealthy people because of their corporate sponsors.

hardihar. Sharpton can go shop in Detroit. Sounds like he’s made downtown into exactly his vision of heaven. In fact, if the black ‘shoppers’ stay away from Florida, it might make it very nice. Course, how’s he going to honor Trayvon’s parents at that convention next week? Al, go sit in a swamp. (I know, that’s racist). How about, ‘Go hug the Tar Baby.’

Jesse Jackson, the guy who on orders from Al Gore went down to Florida and held a fake protest saying blacks were being turned away from the polls....Until it was found out to be complete BS. Bush stole the election? No, Gore was prevented from stealing the election because idiots like Jackson are so pathetic they are beyond obvious.

These clowns are deliberately ignoring some 30 other states with stand your ground laws.

We need to force them to go national to divide their forces and shut them down.

Actually they should come to Detroit. Then they can explain why they don’t want to boycott Michigan which has almost the exact same stand your ground law as Florida.

Reacting to these people isn’t working, we have to force them to fight by our rules.

Why Florida? Why not California, or any of the 31 other states that do not impose a duty to retreat?

California jury instructions regarding justifiable homicide:

"A defendant is not required to retreat. He or she is entitled to stand his or her ground and defend himself or herself and, if reasonably necessary, to pursue an assailant until the danger of (death/great bodily injury/ [insert forcible and atrocious crime]) has passed. This is so even if safety could have been achieved by retreating."

Stand your ground wasn’t even used in the Martin/Zimmerman case. It was self defense.

Sure, that’s easy. Because it’s part of the group of everything of which nothing is excluded.

Jesse is under direct orders from the White House to keep the unrest train rollin’.

Obama can’t figure out how Bill Clinton was so successful using these tools and he - Obama - A HALF BLACK MAN - can’t seem to get the same satisfaction.

Wouldn’t surprise me if Obama physically slapped Jesse across the face in the oval office. ...a limp wristed slap with a little bounce on his toes when he did it.

Like a 70s pimp steppin’ out on the boulevard today with platform goldfish aquarium shoes - when the geers and laughter erupts its just hard to feel sorry for such a fool like Jesse. He so old school.

Come on down and buy a Kel-tec. Made in FL, guaranteed for life. Don’t even know my little .380 w/HP’s is in my pocket.

And now I ALSO carry a cool stainless-steel lock-blade that you can open with your thumb. 440 S/S, hand-made in Pakistan, from a gun show. Nice knife. Belt clip it on the belt.....

Mr. Jackson’s relevance is just about as gone as Pat Quinn’s. Is he expecting blacks to leave florida? Is he expecting people to research everything they buy and reject anything that is made in Florida? how exactly does one boycott an entire state.

But let’s say that Jesse’s intent is for every black to pack up and leave Florida. What would be the impact? what would change?

Actually I think it is. Fox News stated that 33% of the time it was used successfully was by African Americans, and less than 10% was it used by Caucasians.

The angelic black Trayvon Martin was shot by a "non-black" and the JJs of the world thought "stand your ground" would be used as a defense.

The defense did not use that argument, but since a black angel was killed it's still more fun and profitable to call the law racist than to be content with the verdict.

All you have to do is think like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton and it becomes crystal clear. /smile

The success of the boycott will be measurable, by how much the welfare rolls and food stamps are reduced, if successful Florida should be rolling in the coin.

Dear Fellow Liberal,

Your name and address was given to the Obama Campaign for Change and your change has come. This document is your ticket to the Progressive Utopia we all strive for. Because of your dedication to the campaign and to our lord and savior Obama, we have a second term and we have total control of the federal government.

Unfortunately we still do not have control of all the states, but this is temporary. You did your job and this is your reward:

Pack Your Bags.......

One Free House in Detroit!

That is correct an absolutely free (*) home in Detroit, the most progressive and successful city in America at implementing our dreams. You will never have to worry about having those right-wing, Christian bigots as neighbors ever again. Just you and your fellow leftists and your EBT cards inheriting this heaven on Earth!

You haven’t called U-Haul yet? What are you waiting for?

** Condition of free home varies... property taxes assessed at highest possible valuation from when home was in peak condition.

Israel has the state with the most Jews in it and Florida has a lot of retired Jews in it. It is no wonder that the black anti-Semite would suggest such a thing. I am glad with my old work in Jews Against Jackson.

Jesse Jackson in one sentence just increased properties values by 20 percent in all of Florida. Now if we could just keep leftards out of every other decent state we’d be set.
