Occupy movement joins in Million Hoodie March
abclocal.go.com ^ | March 22, 2012

Posted on 03/22/2012 5:18:29 AM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

The deadly shooting of an unarmed teenager by a neighborhood watch captain is sparking outrage in New York and across the country, and now, the Occupy Wall Street Movement is getting involved.

Trayvon Martin's family meets with the justice department Thursday to demand answers about the way their son's shooting was handled by local police in Florida. But on Wednesday night, hundreds rallied in Union Square Park as Martin's parents spoke to the crowd.

"My son did not deserve to die," Tracy Martin said after thanking those who participated in a march in the teenager's memory.

Demonstrators chanting "we want arrests" converged on for what was dubbed the Million Hoodie March.

Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother, told the crowd: "My heart is in pain, but to see the support of all of you really makes a difference."

Scenes From the "Million Hoodie March" - The family of Trayvon Martin joined thousands of demonstrators, who teamed up with Occupy Wall Street, to march across New York City last night to protest the shooting death of the Florida teenager.

After the formal demonstration ended, the protest — buoyed in part by the Occupy Wall Street supporters angry over recent clashes with the NYPD — evolved into a general anti-police rally.

Yes the kid who was set on fire is a horrible crime. Yes the kid who was killed by the “neighborhood watch” is a horrible crime. Probably the difference is that most Americans don’t do public demonstrations, but the black community does.

Yeah, baby! That's the way to do it. To hell with having any evidence to support an arrest and criminal charge. Who needs that anymore? Just demand that the police department acquire Mr. Zimmerman and bring him to the mob for hanging. And maybe another of his family members too. Just to emphasize their point.

I’m sure the powers to be are out there vetting the shooter to see if he is a Gun Totting Conservative. They are out there trying to make this an election issue, anything to get the attention away from the economy will do.

The man appears Hispanic, althiugh he likely had a German or Jewish ancestor on his paternal side. (He could have been adopted, however.) Note that his picture is NOT being broadcast widely in the MSM because it goes against the narrative of EEEEEEEvil white male opressor acting viciously against an OOOOOOOOOOpressed black yout.

Isn’t it funny that the police do an investigation, come to a conclusion, and we then decide that it’s the PRESS that has the facts, not the police?

No it’s not. Don’t trust those people wearing Hoodies. Infact, here in a East Bay city we have been having a rash of stores being robbed by gun point by suspects wearing Hoodies. My coworker was a victim in one of the store robberies by 2 dudes wearing Hoodies and mask.

You’re definitely jumping the gun on this. There’s no clear evidence this was a crime and wasn’t self defense, as claimed by the shooter, Mr. Zimmeran, who might well have been in legitimate fear of death or great bodily harm when he shot Martin. Please see:

Maxine Waters on the Los Angeles riots of 1992 (Rodney King riots):

"[Maxine] Waters has been criticized for her comments regarding the Los Angeles riots of 1992. In defense of the people that looted stores and damaged property, Waters said 'If you call it a riot it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.'[5] She also said it was 'a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice' and 'The anger in my district is righteous. I'm just as angry as they are.' She responded to the mass looting of Korean-owned stores by saying: 'There were mothers who took this as an opportunity to take some milk, to take some bread, to take some shoes. They are not crooks. Everybody in the street was not a thug or a hood.'"

From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party's] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.

Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"

"The RCP [Revolutionary Communist Party] upheld the 1992 sometimes-violent unrest in Los Angeles and nationally as a 'rebellion' in the aftermath of the Rodney King verdicts. Then-LAPD chief Daryl Gates alleged that the RCP was involved in the 'riots'. Los Angeles has long been one of the RCP's larger and more active branches. William 'Mobile' Shaw was a local leader who recently passed and received public commendation from the party."

VAN JONES (Obama's former 'Green Jobs Czar')

Here's the original source for the Van Jones quote about the time he spent in jail following the Rodney King/LA riots (Jones was arrested in "peaceful" protests in San Fran). It was in a 2005 interview he did with East Bay Express. They of course (what else?) claim he "renounced his rowdy Black Nationalist ways" since then (yet he's calling for "complete revolution" in Aug 2009!):

But in jail, he said, "I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary." In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."

Killing of Black teen, Trayvon Martin sparks outcry, national mobilization - March 20, 2012 - Najee Muhammad, who heads the New Black Liberation Militia in Atlanta, told The Final Call his group is determined to make a citizen’s arrest.

“Everybody is making great speeches but somebody has to do something different. Nobody is thinking like this. We can’t keep looking to the enemy to give us justice,” said Mr. Muhammad.

He says the militia group has had “well-trained members” on the ground in Sanford the past few weeks and even obtained the address for the parents of Mr. Zimmerman in Lake Mary, Fla.

“We were able to obtain information that his father, Robert Zimmerman, got him out of the country because they are spooked out and scared by what his son did,” said Mr. Muhammad. “People want to debate about whether there is probable cause to make a citizen’s arrest. George Zimmerman killed a 17-year-old boy in cold-blooded pre-meditated murder. What more probable cause do you need?”

Since making their efforts public, he says the New Black Liberation Militia has received numerous calls from the Justice Dept., FBI, the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center in attempts at “finding out details of our plans because they know how we move. We’re not playing games.”

If this group of kooks sets one foot on private property, they can be arrested for trespassing. Zimmerman will have to be in public. If he is out of the country, he should maybe stay out of the country. He will get indicted, I predict, and be tried, which would be a good thing, getting all the facts out in a court of law, unless it turns out to be a show trial like Casey Anthony.

The Extreme Makeover of Fox News: Analyst Marc Lamont Hill ["Black Liberation" revolutionary communist]
Accuracy In Media - AIM Column ^ | October 2, 2009 | Cliff Kincaid

Who would plaster his Twitter page with police mug shot photos of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur (aka Joanne Chesimard)? Fox News contributor Marc Lamont Hill did. At least until David Horowitz and Accuracy in Media took notice and wrote about it. Now the page features photos of boxing great Muhammad Ali. Hill's MySpace page is also gone.

There are other changes as well. The tributes to Shakur and black racist Khallid Muhammad, known as "America's Black Hitler," have disappeared from his web pages. The articles were saved, however, and can be found here.

Marc Lamont Hill, Sept 7, 2009:

"I am thrilled to announce that Mumia Abu-Jamal has joined the Barbershop as a weekly contributor!! His column, “Live From Death Row,” will appear every Wednesday starting next week.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is one of the world’s most celebrated journalists, freedom fighters, and political prisoners. Since his early days in Philadelphia, Mumia was an active member of the Black freedom struggle. From his award-winning journalism to his involvement with the Black Panther Party, Mumia has devoted his life to Black liberation. Wrongfully incarcerated since 1981 for the murder of Officer Daniel Faulkner, Mumia has continued to place a spotlight on various forms of injustice around the globe through his numerous columns, commentaries, and books. Mumia has generated international support for his own case, which has been one of the most glaring and repugnant reflections of the criminal (in)justice system."--Marc Lamont Hill

Interview with Representative Shelia Jackson Lee - March 19, 2012 - REP. SHEILA JACKSON LEE (D), TEXAS: It is OK to have a neighborhood watch, but not a neighborhood vigilante, and frankly the question has to be whether this young boy's life was taken and his civil rights denied and an ineffective investigation.

The reason why I suggest that this is a civil rights case, no matter what background the individual has -- civil rights belong to all Americans -- is that sometimes a federal law has to say the protection of this child's life is superior to state law and federal law trumps state law in terms of protecting his life.

Here’s what I don’t understand: how can you say Zimmerman was “trying to kill” Martin? Does that sound even remotely reasonable?

Consider:

1) Zimmerman was armed.
2) There was a lengthy struggle caught on tape prior to the shot being fired.
3) Martin’s father has reportedly said the voice yelling for “Help” on the 911 tape is not Trayvon.

So, if Zimmerman was trying to kill Martin, you’d think it would be handled a bit more efficiently. The points outlined above suggest more to me that:

1) Zimmerman confronted Martin and asked what he was doing.
2) Zimmerman was then attacked by Martin.
3) Zimmerman fought back and attempted to call for help.
4) When no help arrived, Zimmerman finally shot Martin in self defense.

Same conclusion the police came to. Read the article I posted back to you. Given the injuries sustained by Zimmerman, I’d say the police were right. Also, confronting a suspicious person in your neighborhood is not “being an aggressor.” It’s being a vigilant neighbor.

Hillary and the Black Panthers: The Real Story
Richard Poe
Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2003

A series of hard-Left mentors introduced Hillary to the brass-knuckle realities of revolutionary activism. As a Wellesley undergraduate, she met and interviewed radical organizer Saul Alinsky, whose Machiavellian tactics she admired. Hillary's senior thesis supported Alinsky's call for class warfare. (4)

At Yale, Hillary found a new Svengali in the form of left-wing law professor Thomas Emerson, known around campus as "Tommy the Commie." Emerson recruited Hillary and other students to help monitor the trial of the New Haven Nine for civil rights violations. Hillary took charge of the operation, scheduling the students in shifts, so that student monitors would always be present in the courtroom. She befriended and worked closely with Panther lawyer Charles Garry. (5)

Some believe that the enormous pressure exerted by the Left helped ensure light sentences for the New Haven Nine. Whether or not this is true, the punishments were mild.

"Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977," reports John McCaslin in the Washington Times. "The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley's torture, got elected to a California school board." (6)

Hillary's defenders argue that she played no "significant" role in the New Haven Nine's defense. This is semantic hairsplitting. Obviously, Hillary was less "significant" than Charles Garry or "Tommy the Commie" Emerson. But Hillary served as a trusted lieutenant to these movers and shakers. Moreover, she had a national profile as a campus activist. Hillary was no rank-and-file student protester, as her apologists claim.

Indeed, Hillary's work for the Panthers won her a summer internship at the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft in 1972. A hardline Stalinist, Treuhaft had quit the Communist Party in 1958 only because it was losing members and no longer provided a good platform for his activism. (7) "Treuhaft is a man who dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB," notes historian Stephen Schwartz. (8)

The defense of the New Haven Nine marked Hillary's initiation into the sinister underworld of the hard-core, revolutionary Left. To my knowledge, Hillary has never publicly renounced nor apologized for her role in that movement.

"On May 1st, May Day [1969], the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo [the police].

Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.

The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."

To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

He should have been more careful whom he assaulted. IE unarmed.

Not that he deserved to die, but wasn’t the kid trespassing in a gated community? What was he doing there?

"Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home...." - Long-time left-wing America-hater Joan Baez sang for Tookie [Williams] just before he entered the death chamber which he had eluded for decades.

WARNING: The linked site shows graphic murder scene photos of Tookie Williams' victims.

The man appears Hispanic, althiugh he likely had a German or Jewish ancestor on his paternal side. (He could have been adopted, however.) Note that his picture is NOT being broadcast widely in the MSM because it goes against the narrative of EEEEEEEvil white male opressor acting viciously against an OOOOOOOOOOpressed black yout.

-

"In a letter to the Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman’s father said his son wasn’t a racist. Zimmerman’s mother is Hispanic. “He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever,” Robert Zimmerman wrote."

Actually, I believe he was visiting a resident of the community - his father’s fiance or somesuch.

But I still think the police have more facts on this than all these armchair quarterbacks do.

Yes the kid who was killed by the “neighborhood watch” is a horrible crime.

How do you know a crime was committed? Here is a statement from the police on the incident, including why Zimmerman wasn't arrested.

Yes, that was going to be my question also.

Another selective indignation. If that’s the word.

I wonder whose promoting it this time.

Pasco group to be a part of Trayvon Martin rally tonight - March 22, 2012 - About 15 to 20 members of the African-American Club of Pasco County say they are heading to Seminole County to ''be a part of the justice process.''

"Whether is was on the East Coast or the West Coast, children are children,'' said Darryl Stevenson, Acting President of the African-American Club of Pasco. "I'm a firm believer that all children are our children. Doesn't matter where they are, where they come from or what they look like. We're responsible for their welfare and their education and their well being. And this was an instance where a child's life was taken, so we need to stand up for it."
