Trayvon Martin shooting case draws Jesse Jackson to Orlando area - Says Trayvon a "martyr"
sun-sentinel.com ^ | Jeff Kunerth | March 25, 2012

Civil-rights activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson took the microphone shortly before noon today at the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Eatonville and pronounced slain teen-ager Trayvon Martin to be a martyr.

"Martyrs have power," Jackson said near the end of his hour-long sermon. "He represents all of us."

Dressed in a dark gray suit and blue tie, Jackson began his address with a chant: "Stop the violence. Save the Children. Keep hope alive!"

"How do we go from a moment to a movement that creates fundamental change," Jackson asked the capacity crowd, estimated at 1,600 people. "If it's a moment, we go home. If it's a movement, we go to war. Movements are made of serious substance…there is power in the blood of the innocent." ....

George Zimmerman, a volunteer Neighborhood Watch captain in the community, told police he shot the teen in self-defense.

But Jackson told the crowd at the church, "Zimmerman told police he had killed him. Shot him in the back of the head in self-defense."

His remark conflicts with previously published information. According to sources close to the investigation, the teen-ager was shot once in the chest.

Jackson, who marched with Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.in Alabama in the 1960s, referred to Zimmerman's claim to police that the teen-ager, who was wearing a hoodie, looked suspicious to him.

"We focus on kids wearing hoods. You know the people who started wearing hoods," Jackson said, referring to the Ku Klux Klan. "Whether you are wearing a hood or a sheet, nobody has the right to kill anybody."

Ninety-three percent (93% ) of the deaths of young black men are at the hands of other black men.

Homicide is the leading cause of death of young black men.

The MSM doesn’t care about the slaughter going on in black communities because it doesn’t excite black voters - doesn’t get ‘em mad and ready to vote for white liberal elites.

The Jesse Jackson types - self-appointed black ‘leaders’ - don’t care about the 93% of black men killed by black men because those deaths don’t help shake-down elite, rich, guilty-white liberals for power and cash.

The Black Panthers don’t care about the 93% of black men killed by black men - because they don’t get to strut around acting tough. Pushing their neighbors around. Nope. They don’t care - not a peep out of them.

No one cares about the 93% of black men killed by other blacks except their mothers... and somehow, that’s sad.

All true what you say. If you think about it on another front, blacks are being dimished in another way also; I believe there is a significant number of abortions performed with black females, probably disproportiately so. Yet, we hear no outcry here, either. What do liberals do so well that commands so much loyalty from blacks in the face of all this?

You're right about the abortion issue - it's another slaughter going on in the black community. It's another issue not being talked about BECAUSE liberals don't want it talked about - the MSM takes their marching orders from white liberal elites. It's not 'news' until liberal elites say it's news. I sent a link - look at it - we'll talk more later.

Actually, I'd watched it weeks ago. It's called active collusion. Many people make the mistake of blaming MSM's penchant for excusing liberal bias as 'ingrained' or 'subconscious'....NOTHING OF THE SORT.

These people are cold, hard calculating sons of bitches and will do anything to keep their power, their influence, the wealth and sacrifice from which they 'exempt' taxation and pennance - all because they feel.

In the end, these elites want to control our liberties and our minds while they proceed unfettered.

No doubt in my mind this is being fanned for political purposes.

Excellent point! The left cares about the end result, their idea of social justice, not for the life of Trayvon Martin, except for his value as a tool of demagoguery. His death offers them an opportunity to motivate minorities through racism and hate, and the Democratic Party can’t afford to pass this up, not at a time when their base has grown apathetic about the hopey-changey thing.

Jesse Jackson would dance on the teens grave if it gave him more guilty white liberals to shake down for power and cash...
