Al Sharpton: Civil disobedience will escalate if Zimmerman remains free
Orlando Sentinel ^ | 3/30/12 | Arelis R. Hernßndez,

Posted on 03/30/2012 9:10:27 AM PDT by ruralvoter

If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, the Rev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions.

Sharpton would not say the efforts would be taken against the city of Sanford specifically, but he has been critical of the police department's handling of the case. (SNIP) "I will speak about how the National Action Network will move to the next level if Zimmerman isn't arrested," Sharpton said, who founded the organization. He added that it was the Martin family and lawyers who first asked him to get involved and nationalize this story.

got that right.

He actually thought coming down here he would do his usual threats and crap but he is finding out that the south is different to the city where he’;s from and CA.

He is losing and losing support, the local media are now taking on the black racist panthers and wanting Sharpton to go home, he just too stupid to cut his losses and head back north.

Dear Mr. Sharpton,

Eric Holder has murdered hundreds of Mexicans and multiple white Americans. When I see him in leg irons, come back and make your case, such as it isn’t.

What Not-So-Sharpton doesn’t get is I’d bet on 87.5% of the population against his 12.5% any day of the week.

What Al also doesn’t get is if his 12.5% engages in civil disobedience they will invariably attack what they know which is their own people and their own businesses.

Bring it on Al.

Sharpton wouldn’t lead anything that would put his fat butt in any sort of peril.

Zimmerman needs to move where he can be protected against these thugs. I suggest he move to Maricopa county, Arizona

I shudder to think of the violence the left would have unleashed on innocent citizens had the shooter been a caucasian non-Democrat. Be aware the left has an army in waiting for the opportunity to attack. They are only waiting for the right moment. History indicates that Socialists always, eventually, use violence and force against their opposition. I can’t see any evidence they have changed.

Wait until the SCOTUS approves 0bamacare, if you want to see civil disobediance and passive aggressive protest.

The last part of this is also worth quoting:

“Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

I agree that civil disobedience will rise if Zimmerman is not jailed because people like Al Sharpton will ensure that it does.
