Magic Johnson, Stevie Wonder Expected at LA Trayvon Martin Rally- (Zimmerman Takes Down Website)
NBC News - Los Angeles ^ | April 27, 2012 | Jason Kandel

Posted on 04/26/2012 3:26:28 PM PDT by Beaten Valve

A rally expected to draw prominent civil rights leaders is set to take place at a Los Angeles church on Thursday to mark the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin's death.

The rally starting at 5:30 p.m. at the West Los Angeles Church in Christ at 3045 Crenshaw Boulevard will be attended by the Martin family, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, the Rev. Al Sharpton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Bishop Charles Blake, who preaches at the church.

Several celebrities are expected, including Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, David Banner, Paul Rodriguez, radio host Big Boy and Magic Johnson.

(snip)

The rally comes as news broke that the man believed responsible for Martin’s death, George Zimmerman, has taken down a website devoted to helping raise money for his legal defense, a spokesman for his lawyer said Wednesday.

The website www.therealgeorgezimmerman.com was no longer functioning as of Tuesday, said James Woods, a spokesman for Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of the 17-year-old Martin in February. He has pleaded not guilty and is claiming self-defense.

O'Mara has hinted that he will ask Zimmerman to be declared indigent, which would allow taxpayers to pay for his legal bills.

Any income from the website would make that process more difficult. The website was created almost two weeks ago by Zimmerman's family to thank his supporters and to receive donations from anyone who wanted to help with his legal defense.

I am guessing this will be another self-congratulatory bunch of people presuming Zimmerman’s guilt and Martin’s abject innocence, all without evidence.

It yesterday’s news guys. If there’s a place where the truth is finally understood, and the late mr. Martin is there, I’m sure he’d be counseling you to get in with whatever life you have left.

It turns out Zimmerman is part white, part Hispanic, and part black. The only part these race baiter's are attacking is his white part. Go figure! They're giving his Hispanic and black parts a pass.

Someone needs to ask Magic if George Zimmerman should have just taken his beating like that Giants Fan in the Dodgers Parking Lot.

I don’t know what the truth about the whole Zimmerman matter is at this point, but if this noise turns into an Emily Litella moment for the media and the race hustlers, there has to be some sort of restitution for what I view as criminal behavior.

Trayvon is just an excuse. These race baiters are only after donations. When the donations dry up - these guys are going to be gone, because they got what they came for. (Trayvon who?)

Well, let’s see, aside from funding the US military, my tax dollars go to no other good use, so I would support them being used to defend an innocent man being persecuted by our racist government and the racist drones it helped to manufacture.

George has been recast as a white guy, and the Hispanics are more than happy to wink and nod along with the sham.

As far as any white Dodger fans, I imagine many of them are self-hating, cowardly white liberals, eager to prove their progressive, worldly outlook by siding with the poor downtroddden blacks, especially when...gasp...Magic Johnson is involved.

Zimmerman’s defense attorney advised him to take down the site so it wouldn’t interfere with his defense.

Amazing how it’s still all quiet on the CNN and Jackson’s fronts about Zimmerman being part black. What’s that?!? Yep, black. Confirmed by Reuters. And had blacks sitting down at his dinner table - oh my, how’s that gonna play with the NBPs? Truth be told Martin was a bit light skinned so there’s a great possibility he had a dose of white blood in there somewhere.

It would be so wonderful if at one of the events, one of the black speakers would get up and ream out all of the “leaders” first and then go after their subjects for being so damn stupid about this and so many other racial things.

They’re ignoring the evidence. They have to in order to have their party. If they paid any attention to what really happened, they would be embarrassed to say anything. What is the matter with black people who complained about their treatment 100 years ago in the south?
Here they are trying to do the same thing in reverse to a poor guy like Zimmerman who was trying to save his skin. Just try to imagine a man, a black man, who was standing in a group of people who were about to hang him for just defending himself. It is 1912 in Columbia SC. The crowd says he is guilty. The evidence says he is not. It’s the same thing, but in reverse.

These people are making a gamble they will not be able to cover.

It sometimes seems as if they are begging for full out racism to return. They are segregating themselves even further from society by doing this crap.

Rush says that Oprah’s career has never recovered from the way she latched onto Obama because he was black, thus suddenly making white women fans feel excluded. Sounds like Johnson is courting the same fate.
The temptation just seems to be overwhelming for blacks to do this, while anyone else can see that the prosecution doesn’t have a way to disprove Zimmerman’s defense beyond a reasonable doubt; the preponderance of the evidence seems to go the other way. Pending trial - but AFAIK the prosecution is supposed to have given the defense all its evidence by now, and at the bail hearing they said they had nothing else.

It’s the 20 th anniversary of the LA riots. They may try staging a “re-enactment”.
Think of the elaborate reenactments of the JFK assassination. It would be child’s play to make a reenactment of the uncontradicted statement of Zimmerman as to where he was and what he was doing. If it is consistent with all other information from witnesses, it seems like Zimmerman would be exonerated.
But inciting a race riot makes so much more interesting copy . . . .
