Rangel to Fox: Zimmerman Verdict Could Be Invitation to Shoot Blacks
NewsMax ^ | July 24, 2013 | Greg Richter

Posted on 07/24/2013 9:06:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., told a Fox News reporter that the George Zimmerman acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin could be an invitation for white people to shoot young black men.

Rangel was caught leaving his congressional office by Jesse Waters, who does segments for Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" after host Bill O'Reilly said Rangel had refused multiple invitations to appear on the show. The interview was recorded Tuesday and aired Wednesday on O'Reilly's show.

Waters challenged Rangel on comments he made on MSNBC, where he suggested that if police had found a black Zimmerman they might have beaten him to death.

Rangel, who took an elevator and continued walking to his waiting car during the interview, said that a black man might not have been beaten to death, but likely wouldn't have been allowed to go home without being charged, as Zimmerman was. He also wouldn't have been found not guilty, he said.

"When a local community finds that it has affection for the defendant, fairness is subjective in the minds of the jury," he said.

Waters asked him about addressing the problem of black-on-black crime and said that young black men are 10 times more likely to commit homicides than whites and Hispanics combined.

"Well, that sounds like an invitation for the Zimmermans of the world to start shooting them down," Rangel said.....

They’d have at least 30% of whites on their side.

Why shouldn’t people shoot blacks who attempt to murder them? If Zimmerman hadn’t, he would be dead and the racist thug Martin would probably be eagerly anticipating another victim.

With all due respect to Mr. Rangel (and that isn't much) - you're an idiot Mr. Rangel. You're a short-sighted, agenda-driven fool. Anyone who thinks this same thing is also an idiot.

TM's death had nothing to do with race, and everything to do with GZ defending his own life which was at risk at the time. No sane, rational person is reading anything into the verdict other than GZ was justified in using deadly force to protect his life. End of story. No one is going to go out and target young black men any more than they already do - which by the way happens to be mostly other young black men.

Charlie, why would all the Blacks that currently shoot other Blacks be affected by a Latino who was just defending himself from a wannabe Thug who probably would have grown up to be a Murderer anyway?

Oh I get it, it isn’t fair that the Blacks that the other Blacks shoot can’t defend themselves in the Gun Control Capitals of America, Chicago and D.C.

That was your point, right Charlie?

In what country, now or in ancient times, did a 12% minority tell the 72% majority what to do? Especially when that majority controls most of the government, the economy, the food, the firearms, the culture and the police. Name just one instance. Do they have no idea the fire they’re playing with or do they not believe it’ll ever come to that?

This is all about the “Stand Your Ground Law”. They want to claim GZ was a lone vigilante and he got away with stalking and killing angel Trayvon so now all blacks are supposed to march in the streets demanding states get rid of the SYG law. I heard Van Jones say the same thing to Newt Gingrich in a debate on CNN. It is all by design.

When the ratio of black on white crime adjusted for the the percentage of black verses white population gets close to 1 to 1, I will listen to this man. Right now it is about 1 to 8.

Rangle knows this and it makes him nothing but a race hustler and bigot.

Yup, and that war was fought against them by the people they overwhelmingly vote for, Democrats. Ironic, isn’t it? Sickly ironic in fact.

15 They have already lost the race war, and the white man’s chief weapon has been Planned Parenthood and the Welfare system.

There is truth to what you say, but they can take an awful lot of us out at the same time should matters turn hot. Afterall, their king is POTUS and he controls the general staff officers who control the military.

Been thinking about an old thread on FR that seems to have some parallel lessons ...

2005 – Dr. Peter Hammond published his book, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat. It was a well illustrated and thoroughly documented response to the relentless anti-Christian propaganda that had been generated by Muslim and marxist groups and by Hollywood film makers. As Karl Marx declared: "The first battlefield is the re-writing of history!" Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:

Guyana -- 10% Muslim
Kenya -- 10% Muslim
India -- 13.4% Muslim
Russia -- 15% Muslim
Israel -- 16% Muslim

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia -- 32.8% Muslim

Do they have no idea the fire they’re playing with or do they not believe it’ll ever come to that?

Some haven't done the math, some operate on hatred alone - regardless of the likely outcome. Others also believe that the federal government will back them and serve as a force multiplier.

One problem with that last part - any attempt to halt "ethnic cleansing" here will make the Balkans look like a Sunday School picnic, and the U.N. knows it. They do not want to walk into that meat grinder.

Black people don’t need an invitation to shoot blacks, or people of every other race for that matter. It’s surprising some black thug hasn’t shout Charles Rangel by now. It’s probably because he stays close to his Washington club. Of course, Charlie is worried about white people shooting blacks, like blacks shoot white people, but he needn’t worry. Statistically, blacks are far more likely to be shot by another black before some white guy has a chance to get around to it, not that there are many white people who want to.

Why, do the young black men need help? Seems to me they’re doing just fine killing each other. They don’t need any help.

"Zimmerman Verdict Could Be Invitation to Shoot Blacks"

Not needed. Our negro-speaking neighbors invite being shot dead when they attempt to inflict violence on us. That is an open invitation to empty my clip into their black hearts.

But thank Sharpton for the invitation anyway. It's the civilized thing to do. If he doesn't understand that word, someone give him a dictionary.

Well, we might not have 30% of blacks on our side, but the ones we do have are worth 10 to their 1 so I'm good with that. If we have a "race" war it's not going to be black against white, it's going to be the producers against the parasites.

“At 13% of the population, the odds are not with them.”

But, in my experience, self-consciouly Black blacks don’t believe they are only 13% of the population. They may know the statistics, but in their minds and hearts they feel they are at least 50% of the country. After all, many of them are so self separated that they can go for days without seeing a White or Asian.

Uhhh...almost always, everywhere in the world. The usual state of affairs is an aristocracy/oligarchy with the monopoly on military force. It is only in the last 250 years that the model has changed, thanks to the example of the US and its Constitutional Republic. And the elites still try to maintain their power, only now they have to do it covertly.

On the contrary, the Zimmerman verdict has certainly not been an invitation to shoot blacks, but it has been an excuse for black on white violence.
