Stay safe, everyone. Might be wise to stay close to home for awhile. In safe, familiar places. Don’t get caught alone in a parking lot after dark. Remember the knockout game. You don’t want to be the one victim in your city when some enraged person wants to take out their rage on the nearest law-abiding citizen.
Soundtrack for the summer of their discontent:
Long version, burn baby burn!
This country DOES NEED healing, but what we have in power has SADLY made that ALL IMPOSSIBLE.
Thank-you for the reminder.
Here is how a certain class of white people handled matters when they thought the justice system “failed.”
White people, and especially Jews, had better watch their homes and property if Al Sharpton is in the neighborhood. I can just imagine a couple of Jewish-owned businesses catching fire with Sharpton around, just like in 1995.
LETS RAP WITH AL SHARPTON! (Clean family-friendly version)
Im Al Sharpton, and Obamas my man
To make him Pres-i-dent, that is my plan.
Back in 1988, in Wappingers Falls
Mason, Maddox and I had the place wall to wall!
We found us a girl, her name was Tawana
We made the whole town one great big pinata!
We whacked it around and raised an uproar,
We ruined lives and reputations, and then even more.
Half a million dollars, Dutchess County it spent,
It paid dear for our circus, ere from it we went.
Then came Crown Heights, in 1991
My mob went wild, and boy it had fun!
The diamond merchants sure got a clue,
When my mob rampaged and screamed, Kill the Jew!
They found one, name of Yankel Rosenbaum
The brother that knifed him was no Uncle Tom.
They rioted and screamed, that was a fact
Like the Nazis did, on good old Kristallnacht.*
Four years later, we gave Whitey straight dope
Harlems a Black hood, dont you dare interlope.
To Freddys Fashion Mart, my National Action Network
Marched round and round, to drive out the white jerk.
Called him white interloper, and bloodsucking Jew,
Greedy Jews! and cracker lovers! we also threw.
We screamed epithets, camped out on his porch
Called him a cracker, said his business wed torch.
Roland Smith was my fan, and I sure raised his ire.
At Freddys Fashion Mart, he set a big fire!
A Molotov cocktail, the flash of a match,
And your white-owned Jew store is a big pile of ash!
Seven people died in those hot burning flames,
A bright blazing fire that widened my fame.
Then came the scandal of Duke Lacrosse
I went down to Durham to show em whos boss.
I supported Mike Nifong, hes my kind of man
To find them white boys guilty, that was his plan.
Something went wrong, his case was dismissed
Im sure it was all because the courts are ra-cist.
Now here is more from me that will bring real raves,
We was building empires when whites lived in caves!
Invented philosophy, astrology, and publicity promos,
Long before Socrates and them dirty Greek homos.
Louis Farrakhan is also my man, I bet you can dig it.
Says Judaisms a gutter religion, but I swear hes no bigot.
Now if you want to please me and your mama
Get out on Election Day and vote for Obama!
* Kristallnacht, Night of the Broken Glass.
Thing is, this is actually true. The system as it was being operated in Florida was being rigged to convict Zimmerman.
I have to tell you, even though I am aware of how these things operate, it was still astonishing to watch them try to stack the deck.
What was even more surreal was watching the tactics of the prosecution as their case was imploding inside that rigged system.
In order to look like to me? It looked almost like the stereotypical robot that is given intentionally conflicting instructions. It is as if the prosecutions head began twitching from side to side and their speech became jittery when they knew that they had to win this case, but at the same time realizing they wouldn't.
I wouldn't have been surprised to see sparks coming out of their ears during the final arguments.
Just think. As happy as GZ is, they are 100x angrier.
Ann Coulter certainly hit the nail on the head in her book “Demonic” about mob mentality.
I bet Obama is happy to aggravate the black vote against whitey.
Yes, the country needs healing.
Problem: the country is terminally ill, the life-support just got unplugged, and we’re all sitting around the bed waiting for the doc to make the call...
Zimmerman can't be sued for civil rights violations, only government employees(elected or otherwise)can't violate someone's civil rights, so the courts have ruled. Zimmerman is a private citizen and therefore not capable of being brought up on civil rights violation charges.
Most white people (there are some poor white people, too) will have to pay for their own attorneys, fines, damage, possible jail time, criminal record if they riot. Plus they’ll get shot at with real bullets by the cops, shot at by the other side, their dogs shot and killed, their kids taken away, did I miss something?
OJ Simpson was sued in a civil case for damages. I expect to see the same thing here.
The system worked. That’s what bothers these leftist hatemongers.
that is good news
There have been cases in both California and Oregon where the civil rights violation cited was the taking of one’s life. It did not require a color of authority component. Wait and see what DOJ does. Or even the family in the civil courts.
Not true. There have been such cases in both California and Oregon.
Rather the USA has hit rock bottom.
I have learned in my 70 years that the more you stir shyt, the worse it stinks.
The media has been stirring it from day one, and still show Trayvons picture of when he was 12 years old.
When the riots begin it is the Not to mention the inherent black bigotry blacks learn at the tit.
Here is the portion of the DOJ statue that will likely be used.....it applies to anyone not just federal employees
The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 , 18 U.S.C. § 249. Section 249 of Title 18 was enacted as Division E of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 (starts at pg. 646 of the Act). Section 249, which went into effect in October 2009, created a new federal criminal prohibition against willfully causing bodily injury (or attempting to do so using fire, a firearm, or another dangerous weapon), when (1) the crime was committed because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin of any person, or (2) the crime was committed because of the actual or perceived religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of any person and the crime affected interstate or foreign commerce or occurred within federal special maritime and territorial jurisdiction. The law also provides federal funding and technical assistance to state, local, and tribal jurisdictions to help them to more effectively investigate and prosecute hate crimes.”
“Not going to happen.”
Really? The NAACP is already petitioning Eric Holder to do so.
I appreciate the sentiment.
That is NOT a civil rights violation and it will be very difficult to prove a hate crime, though they might try, it will probably be tossed out.
It’s been really quiet in my East SF Bay general neighborhood.
This morning around 10:00 I heard a loud prolonged roar of what must have been a mile’s worth of Harleys headed east on Rt. 24 to Walnut Creek.
This evening, after the verdict, it is calm. No hooting, no gunshots, no fireworks, no bottle rockets.
I didn’t see a lot of lowlife thugs in my area. I generally don’t see them but tonight I didn’t see any. Maybe they were congregating elsewhere.
Pleasant night to all. And thank God for the verdict.
Keep us informed.
Where you live(Concord/Walnut Creek?), San Fran and E. PA are the canaries, just like OJ and Rodney King.
I live 5 minutes from the Seminole County courthouse.
Some fireworks in my San Jose neighborhood, nothing atypical for a Saturday night this close to the 4th of July.
I, and many others would advise them not to.
Any threat to my family (includes my dogs), myself, or my property; WILL BE MET WITH IMMEDIATE EXTREME AND OVERWHELMING VIOLENCE UNTIL THE THREAT IS ELIMINATED.
For one thing, Zimmerman is NOT a poliece officer, another thing, this was a STATE CASE, NOT a federal case and the NAACP forgets that.
I stand by my position.
Please see post number 82. Thank-you.
Correct on suing the bejeesus out of the lamestream media for portraying him as a racist white cracka stalker.
Incorrect on writing the book, IMO. That will simply invite the prosecution, feds, race baiters, etc.. to look for any inconsistency between his book and his previous public statements to press Perjury (or other) charges against him.
At this point, the less Zimmerman says the better -- again IMO. YMMV.
The jurors (God Bless Them!) need prayers as much as George does...
jurors should go into hiding
Yes, the system failed, first it never should have gone to court, and second it should have gone to a grand jury,but it was by passed.
Lawsuits against NBC and CNN - yes.
Book deal - no.
That’s actually a very astute course of action.
The FBI investigated Zimmerman early on and found no hint of racism. And said so.
This, along with his history of helping black kids learn to read and similar very much not racist actions, would make such a case even more absurd than this murder case.
“For one thing, Zimmerman is NOT a poliece officer, another thing, this was a STATE CASE, NOT a federal case and the NAACP forgets that.”
I fully agree with your comparison of the two and how the circumstances are NOT at all similar. NO civil rights violations occurred - except in the mind of those grasping at straws. However, with the current POTUS and AG...sense doesn’t rule the day...the politics of emotion does. Also, civil rights cases are “federal.” So, even if it is another trumped up charge, there is nothing to keep the AG (directed by the POTUS) from pursuing this IF he thinks it will win him political points. (I certainly hope your prediction is 100% right though...I have just seen too many bad things done by the current administration).
We can be certain that the “Race-baiters” and the “Anti-gun lobby” are going to milk this case ad nauseam.
wait and see.....
