Sharptonite Protesters Cheer Reverend Al Sharpton and Jeer Fox News & Geraldo Rivera at Trayvon Martin Rally in Harlem, NY … Is Geraldo a “White” Hispanic As Well?
The Double Standard of the Mob … Hmm, would appear the Trayvon Martin protesters think Geraldo Rivera is a “white” Hispanic as well.
During the Trayvon Martin rally in Harlem, NY yesterday, the crowd was all vocal with their “no justice, no peace” parroting the rebel rousing lines of the Rev. Al Sharpton until they noticed that FOX News’ Geraldo Rivera was in attendance as well. Individuals in the crowd started yelling, “Geraldo, what are you doing here,” “Fox get out” and “send them outta here”. Hmm, talk about your irony and double standard among those that claim to be honoring Trayvon Martin.
Let me see if I understand this. Isn’t the outrage from those that claim there was no justice for Trayvon when a jury came back with a verdict of “not guilty” in the George Zimmerman murder trial that Trayvon Marin was profiled and had every right to be where he was and was minding his own business? Doesn’t Geraldo have a right to be at a protest and it would seem that he was a guest of Al Sharpton and had no camera crew there, he was just an attendee. Rather duplicitous by the mob, don’t you think? But then again, only Kool-aid drinking folks are allowed at such gatherings. I guess the Al Sharpton crowd just can’t handle the truth and are bitter at Rivera’s comments that Al Sharpton and race politics drove this case and the murder charges against George Zimmerman. I guess the Sharpton crowd thinks that Geraldo Rivera is a “creepy ass cracker” as well.
More at NRO:
When Sharpton and the Fultons arrived shortly after noon, they were accompanied by Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera in the raised area behind the dais. (He had no cameraman and seemed to be observing the proceedings as a guest.) When a handful of protesters directly behind me spotted Rivera, they began to complain loudly, repeatedly shouting, “Get Fox out!” and “What are you doing here?” and describing the network as “disgusting” (and another, less decorous term). The anti-Fox crowd was sufficiently vocal to compel Sharpton’s attention from the podium; he quieted them down by saying, “Don’t get distracted, let’s focus on what we’re doing now.”
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how many people at this rally and chanting “no justice, no peace” actually watched the trial, were aware of the evidence presented and understand the law of self defense.
SECOND EXIT QUESTION: Why are none of the protesters concerned about the 61 murders that took place in Chicago during the time that the George Zimmerman murder trail was taking place?
