Md. Megachurch Gives Tearful Ovation to Trayvon's Mother ["this generation's Rosa Parks"] (barf)
The Christian Post ^ | May 21, 2012 | Anugrah Kumar

Posted on 05/22/2012 10:58:54 AM PDT by kevcol



A megachurch in Baltimore, Md., had an emotional service Sunday as Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, hugged each parent whose children had been victims of "senseless violence."

At least a dozen women and men stood before the altar after the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant of the Empowerment Temple church asked for anyone whose child had also been the victim of "senseless violence," The Baltimore Sun reported.
.
.
.
Bryant introduced Fulton to the congregation as "the mother of the new civil rights movement" and "this generation's Rosa Parks."

"It's so easy for me to cry right now, but I can't because I have work to do," Fulton told the church. "I was forced into this position, but I believe God is using me."

Another story about this was posted here on FR yesterday, but this one adds some details about what the participants were saying. Despite the surfacing "new" evidence (which many here either knew about or anticipated) which further exonerates George Zimmerman, the rhetoric accompanying this media-manufactured-and-driven fake "hate crime" is escalating. Now Trayvon's mother is "this generation's Rosa Parks."?! For doing what exactly? calling the race-baiter Al Sharpton and trademarking her son's name? Failing to control her thieving, druggie son who was suspended 3 times from school and sending him to live with her ex? Raising a thug who refereed fight clubs and slammed people's heads into concrete sidewalks?

I’d love to be in their church service the Sunday after the case against George Zimmerman is thrown out. Then they’ll shed some real friggin’ tears.

Yup. Sad story, and that’s fact.

Here’s another fact, according to the DOJ:

In the 47 days after Martin was killed, black folk killed over 1800 other black folk. What about those black families? What about their grief?

Where’s the sadness and anger over that situation?

One can only wonder what that number is today.

"senseless violence," "new civil rights movement"

Am I the only one who doesn't see any connection there?

Did they give her a ‘Mother of the Year Award’?

I mean she raised a kid who avoided criminal activity, worked hard getting good grades, never missed school, and even bypassed the darwin-award future of the so-called ‘thug life.’ Clearly this child was headed to great things. I think part of her strategy of always know where her underage Son was, and what he was doing, it really made a difference in the boy’s life. She’s top notch. Definitely Mom of the Year material.

As for the Rosa Parks reference... I’d say she’s more aligned with the cash-in part of the civil rights movement. She much more Al Sharpton/Rev. Jackson than Rosa Parks.

They aren’t the least bit interested in waiting for the outcome of the case in court, they’ve already convicted and condemned George Zimmerman on the basis of emotions.

She is much worse. She has turned her daed son into a meal ticket. A son who as it turns out was a thug.

Although the story is that Jesse Jackson intentionally wiped MLK’s blood on his own shirt after the shooting. And he has traded that into a meal ticket.

Disgusting all of them; all the race hustling poverty pimps.

"senseless violence,"

And what of the violence her son instigated upon Zimmerman?

By the laws of Florida, the only senseless violence was Martin's. Zimmerman was being entirely sensical using violence to prevent someone from braining him against a sidewalk.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let me guess. “Senseless violence” happens when your YBM is killed by a whitey. But as 80 percent of YBM murders are committed by other black feral yutes, then that makes sense.

Someone’s using you, dearie......but it ain’t God.

Look at your own lawyer—Crump—and also at the media.

Your kid was a troublemaker who had managed to hide his real life from you. Drugs—burglary—attacking a bus driver—graffitti on lockers inside the school. He was giving you PLENTY of signals that he was out of control.

While it may be difficult to see his true life unfold in front of you, it is time for you to ‘put on your big girl panties’ and tell the truth. Drop the cloak of “DENIAL” and get your own head on straight.

Your kid was a criminal in training. His career just got cut a little short.

What a horrible attack on the memory of an honest woman who never slammed anyone's head on a concrete walk, by representatives of the culture of thuggism and violence.

In a church, no less.

Rosa Parks is truly spinning in her grave, these days.

She’d better hope not. The last Rosa Parks died alone and pennyless in the Chicago projects.

Take a look at who was the Guest of Honor at the Excrement Temple last year. Nuff said:

Reverend Wright brings his anti-American crusade to Baltimore
Marta Mossburg writes that Obama’s former pastor urges blacks to disavow their country
June 21, 2011|By Marta H. Mossburg

Forget hope and change; victimization is in. Dropped by the president and dismissed as a racist by many Americans, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright still draws crowds with his sometimes crotch-grabbing, always riveting soliloquies about black oppression.

The former pastor of Barack Obama drew thousands last week to the 8,000-member Empowerment Temple in Baltimore City. Overflow lots at the church were filled, and five blocks on either side of the massive stadium-like stucco building in Park Heights — a part of town where Orthodox Jews mix sometimes uneasily with blacks — were wall to wall with cars.

In this city where nearly 80,000 people left (along with 53,000 jobs) in the last decade, it's easy to understand why his message resonates.

For Mr. Wright, however, subjugation is a universal truth. Even the president, in Mr. Wright's mind, is not in control of his own destiny.

“Barack Obama was selected before he was elected,” said Mr. Wright, dressed in black pants and a short-sleeved, African-style printed tunic. “Wall Street selected him. GM, Ford and Chrysler selected him. When you are selected by them, you are beholden to them.”

Referencing the Book of Exodus, he warned churchgoers to “Please remember that Pharaoh was black, so not all of your oppressors are white.” A chorus of “amen” and a phalanx of arms rose simultaneously into the air in agreement with Mr. Wright.

And he said faith was not a path to riches, repeatedly poking the expensively dressed Empowerment Temple Pastor Jamal Bryant for driving a Range Rover. “Every word that is in the Bible was written under six different types of [government] oppression,” he said.

Mr. Bryant spent much of the hour-and-a-half interview with Mr. Wright with his immaculately manicured right hand on his head, slouched deep in his seat.

Mr. Wright spread the blame for black persecution around on lots of people and epochs. He hates Roman emperors for renaming months after themselves and upsetting their proper numerical order; Michelangelo for painting Jesus as white; U.S. public schools for teaching the American Revolution instead of African history. In particular, he hates the term “Middle East,” as it implies Europe as the center of the world.

And he hates Israel. “The state of Israel is an illegal, genocidal … place,” he said. “To equate Judaism with the state of Israel is to equate Christianity with [rapper] Flavor Flav.” Laughter erupted from the mostly female audience on that remark.

His solution: “We need to help African-Americans see they are just Africans born in another country.”

This could be achieved in part by requiring African-American students to study African history after school each day, just like Jewish children who receive a separate Hebrew education, he said. (Never mind that all of that education has not prevented cross-faith marriages and a weakening of the ties of successive generations to Judaism.)

And never mind that students today suffer not from an identity crisis but a lack of basic skills. Studies show student self-esteem at an all-time high. But at Baltimore City Community College, 80 percent of incoming students need remedial education. Statewide, public two- and four-year institutions report 56 percent of students going directly from high school to college need some form of remedial education in a state honored three years in a row as having the top public education system by Education Week.

Since this is in Baltimore, what about that black family a few years back that was all burned up by drug-nuts in the city for standing up against druggies (most likely black)? Their overnight arson made the nightly news, having killed the whole family including (real) children, but that was about it. No marches, no vigils, no very-public trials or even pursuit of the scum who did it. No outrage and massive riots threatening to tear apart the perps.

He Died in My Arms” (pgs 4-10)

This is where Jesse Jackson lied about cradling Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s head just after the assassination and that he was “the last person on earth” to whom King had spoken with. Jackson and repeated the lie at every opportunity and got away with it for nearly a decade. It wasn’t until a reporter tracked down other members of Dr. King’s entourage and published the true account of what actually happened in Memphis.

Typical liar about everything about himself...
