Al Sharpton Says Civil Disobedience Will Escalate if George Zimmerman is Not Arrested for Death of Trayvon Martin … Local NAACP Condemn Sharpton’s Call

 

So when does an escalation of civil disobedience turn to … “NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE”?

Al Sharpton continues to fan the flames or racism and has called for an escalation of civil disobedience if George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvone Martin, is not arrested. Then what? Is Sharpton going to call for a continued escalation of civil disobedience is Zimmerman is not indicted, found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison? Seriously, the last thing this situation needs is an individual like Al Sharpton fanning the flames of racism and making ultimatums. Does anyone find it just a bit creepy that Sharption is escalating this story when he has a commercial internist to do so as he is employed by MSNBC?

The irresponsible rantings of Al Sharpton … what happens when this spirals out of control?

If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, theRev. 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.

“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.

However, all are not on board with Sharpton. Local NAACP and civil rights leaders like Florida Turner Clayton, the Seminole County chapter president of the NAACP is not all in on Sharpton’s comments.

Turner Clayton, the Seminole County chapter president of the NAACP, reacted immediately to Sharpton’s warning, saying, “We hope that the citizens of Sanford will govern themselves accordingly. We are not calling for any sanctions, against any business or anyone else. And, of course, what Rev. Sharpton does, that’s strictly the [National] Action Network.  We can’t condone that part of the conversation, if that’s what he said.”

Clayton said he believes that the expected 3,000 people who will attend Saturday’s march and rally in Sanford will realize the difference between Sharpton’s message and the NAACP’s mission.

“I don’t think they can confuse that,” Clayton said. “It’s just that they will have to make a judgment as to whether they want to follow the mission of the NAACP or follow what the Rev. Sharpton said.”

UPDATE I: So where does it go from here? Sure Sharpton can call for an escalation of civil disobedience, but what happens when the feeding frenzy of playing the race card turns in to violence and worse? Some are calling for Sharpton to be fired  (audio)from MSNBC and arrested for inciting violence.

      As a ‘mob organizer’ Sharpton
      would rank up there with the
      big guys. As a ‘Reverend’ he
      doesn’t have the ‘creds’ (in my
      book).

      Does this clown get his
      money from the ‘collection
      plate’ or elsewhere?

      Al and Jessie are simply Black Racist or at minimum Race Baiters. They are insignificant and ought to be simply ignored.

      Actually, mob violence (the real name for it) will escalate if Sharpton doesn’t shut his mouth and simply continues to encourage it.

    7. Its Me on March 31st, 2012 5:57 pm

      There will never be pease among the blacks, whites and hispanics as long as people like Sharpton and jackson are allowed to get away with this crap. I believe they want another Watts riot. Maybe they profit by it, who knows.

      So irresponsible!

      Racists like Farakhan and Sharpton etc try to stoke racial problems to secure a voting block and intimidate “the establishment”.

      The REAL TRUTH is that people are actually getting along! There is a decline in racial discrimination!

      So Sharpton and Jackson etc are trying to trump up a scene (i.e. the Trayvon incident) to harm race relations and stir up political momenteum!

      Yes, there should be economic sanctions. This world knows money is their God. Al Sharton, Martin Luther King, and Adam Clayton Powell all spoke about the the injustice to African Americans. All people should partcipate if their conscious is in the riight place.

      Arrest George Zimmerman now.

      People are not going to just sit back and let a murderer walk free, they’ll get justice someway somehow

      SM: I would be very careful as to what you are suggesting. Do any of you ponder why no charges have yet been brought against Zimmerman even after all the attention has been brought on the situation? So he is charged and tried, then what? What if he is found not guilty? This is far from a cut and dry case. The issue with this case is that race has been brought in that has made it now next to impossible to even have a venue where if charged Zimmerman can even get a fair trial.

      Remember how difficult it was to pick a jury for the Casey Anthony murder case and look what the outcome was.

      I agree with Red, Zimmerman cannot get a fair trail anymore.

      Did he follow him because he was black or did he follow him because he was dressed like a criminal.
      The whole law stinks.

      Say Red comes after me, pissed off for whatever reason (and we are in Florida, Red is a big muscular guy and I have a gun) and I feel threatend by the way he aproaches me. I pul my gun and shoot and kill him.

      I don’t get charged?

      It was self defense the blacks just need to deal with it and stop the threats of terrorism.
