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

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.

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.

LOL I was being polite too.

In all seriousness though, the man came down here thinking he could do his usual crap of threats etc like he does up there but now he’s finding out that he’s just not wanted, hell when the local media calls him out then it’s time for him to pack his bags and head home cutting his losses.

He hasn’t got the tens of thousands marching, attitudes are different here and what he seems to forget that we have good gun laws unlike NY city or Chicago.

Were I, a white man, to proclaim and incite civil (or uncivil violence) against a black man, an hispanic man, ANY other race besides my own would result in my targeting by TSA, FBI and every other US agency as a terrorist. Nothing like racist double standards here.

Got it. Agree with it.

I just believe WE are in charge of the timing. WE decide when and where.

I believe we will NOT be a mob like them, but a force to be reckoned with. That would include our own De Gaule and a strategy at the top with a plan and not a pitchfork.

I’m wondering - where will the riots be incited?

Compton?

Miami?

Detroit?

We can do that too!

How about this scenario? Civil disobedience follows if the HHS mandate continues to require faith based institutions and religious people to pay for contraceptives, abortifacients, and sterilizations for promiscuous people?

See? More than the leftists can play this game too.

Civil disobedience will escalate as long as Al Sharpton remains free. He needs to be arrested for our own protection.

"Al Sharpton: Civil disobedience will escalate if Zimmerman remains free..."

Whenever I see Al Sharpton's and /or Jesse Jackson's name(s) I harken back to a quote by Doug Adams from his HHGTTG books:

"A bunch of mindless jerks who'll be first against the wall when the revolution comes."

“Not at all. I think civil disobedience is likely to consider. I am not sanctioning it. The permanently-ruffled will never be happy until Zimmerman is dead.”

“” “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

-—The above and Jefferson's “Water the tree of Liberty” quote should fire up any true American. Unfortunately, Sharpton’s followers are nothing more than 5th columnists bent on destroying this country from within.

A word of advice to the ignorant race pig, Sharpton:

You don’t really want to go even a step down the road of real civil disobedience. Your Jungle Culture has been allowed to misbehave abominably for decades due to the civilization and restraint of whites. It has been an extremely one-sided encounter to this point

Once, the battle is joined by even a small percentage of whites, and fire is truly returned, your destructive ghetto thuggery and its imbecile supporters will be permanently eradicated.

This case is being used as a pretense for what has already been planned. If it wasn’t this one, it wold be another. Read your history, people. And visit the hard-left websites, especially the black nationalist ones. They’ve been planning this for a long time. Oh, and you might want to get your JHP’s now before Homeland Security buys them all up. Hmmm... wonder why they’re doing that?

You are correct however we are not in control of the spark...once ignited this barn burner ain't going out until all the fuel is consumed.....I equate this situation to what happens prior to an earthquake...the pressure keeps building until one day and one more pound of pressure then can be held back by friction the world gets rocked. We are quickly approaching that point. Once we get there ALL the pressure will be relieved but the destruction will be total.

Sanford police this week released a video of a handcuffed George Zimmerman apparently showing no visible signs of physical injury after he claimed that he shot the 17-year-old Miami teenager in self-defense.

Really? Did you ask them, moron?

Arelis R. Hernández does discredit to that class of folks with the letter á in their name.

The ones who are guilty of this race-baiting are NOT the majority in EITHER community or race! I live in a mixed-race community, and would no more expect my neighbors (black or otherwise) to loot and burn our neighborhood than they would expect me to so the same...

My wife and I went out to dinner last night. I took notice of many mixed groups all around me having a great time and enjoying each others company. I watch groups of workers, all mixed, working together with no issues. Apparently, they hadn't got the memo that we're all supposed to be hating each other!!!

It's the (not-so) Sharptons and Jacksons of the world, and those in the media who are trying to make their own stories or who have an agenda who are the ones that are causing these issues, and they aren't doing it for equality! They are doing it for POWER and to further their own RACIST/COMMUNISTIC ideas! If anyone needs to be discredited, it's THIS bunch!

Be ready for anything, but think clear and be in control...
