More Race-Bait Hatred from Jesse Jackson … President Reagan was a Racist … Tea Party Seeks To “Maintain Walls” of Slavery And Segregation, America “The Land of The Free, Home of The Genocide”
Talk about irony, Jesse Jackson was introduced at McAlister Auditorium on Furman’s Greenville, SC as an “international peacemaker …
Jesse Jackson so Furman students … “The U.S. south is “the land of the free, the home of genocide.”
The Reverend Jesse Jackson spoke at Furman University and decided to further his race-baiting, divisive agenda by making insane comments regarding former President Ronald Reagan and the Tea Party. But that is all this one time Civil Rights leader has become, creating controversy and making outlandish comments in order to keep people divided, maintain animosity and further his cash-cow divisive agenda. Jackson has no answers to anything, but instead just wants to fan the flames. Jackson was invited to speak at “Keeping Hope Alive: Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. Lauren Cooley, a Furman student who organized that protest and was disappointed that Furman would bring such a divisive individual to speak said, “He’s been stirring up division for years through outlandish anti-Semitic, anti-white, and anti-conservative statements.” Yup, that pretty much sums Jackson up in a nutshell. We are obviously allowed our Fist Amendment rights of free speech, but why does anyone listen to this guy anymore?
Keep Hate Alive …
Deceased Republican President Ronald Reagan sought to to permanently ban African Americans from playing college and professional football in the South with white people, civil rights icon Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. alleged in a speech at Furman University on Wednesday evening.
In the same speech he also alleged that the modern Tea Party was born from efforts to sustain segregation.
“Goldwater and Reagan – had they been successful, it would have been illegal for blacks and whites to play together on a Saturday afternoon,” he said.
“You couldn’t have had the Carolina Panthers behind the cotton curtain playing the Atlanta Falcons…[inaudible] it would have been illegal.”
In the tirade, recorded by a Furman University student, Jackson went on to claim that if Reagan and former GOP presidential candidate Barry Goldwater had their way, there would have been no Olympics in Atlanta, and basketball legend Michael Jordan would have been ineligible to play basketball at the University of North Carolina (UNC).
“Michael Jordan couldn’t have gone to UNC… [inaudible] it would have been ineligible for him to play at UNC,” he continued. “You couldn’t have had the Olympics in Atlanta Georgia. You couldn’t have had the Dallas Cowboys in Houston, Texas, you couldn’t have had the Super Bowl in New Orleans or in Atlanta or in Jacksonville or Miami.”
Jackson may have been referencing Reagan and Goldwater’s vocal support for state and individual rights, which a small number of far left critics interpreted as thinly veiled appeals for segregation.
He repeatedly calling the United States south “the land of the free, the home of genocide,” and suggested that the modern day Tea Party was born from efforts to maintain “the walls” of slavery and segregation.
“The Union, those in the Confederacy sought to maintain the walls [of slavery and segregation of races] and secede from the country, the shots fired at Fort Sumter, the beginning of the Tea Party, the ‘Fort Sumter’ Tea Party, who sought to secede from the union, set their own government, their own currency, sought to ally with France and Britain, to form their own country,” he said.
HATE CRIME: Ginger Slepski Brutally Beaten by Four Black Teens in North Side of Pittsburgh, PA Says Attack Was ‘Racially Motivated’ … ‘Shut up White Bitch’
A note to President Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, NAACP and Attorney General Eric Holder … the following is what would be considered a racially motivated hate crime …
As reported at WPXI, Ginger Slepski was brutally attacked by a group of black female teens after Slepski stopped her vehicle to confront the girls after they had thrown a bottle at her car. When Ginger Slepski got out of her vehicle she was brutally attacked by the teens as they yelled at Slepski, “Shut up white bitch.” The other said, “Get that white bitch.” According to Slepski, she tried to get back into her car, but they grabbed her by her hair. Then one of the attackers punched her in the head and I was on a set of concrete steps and my head hit the concrete so hard. Then Slepski said, “Then they all got on top of me and all their hands were in my hair. They kept telling each other to, ‘Kick her in the head. Kick her head in the concrete.”
Hmm, where is the MSM demanding justice?
A woman who said she was brutally attacked by a group of black teenagers in Pittsburgh’s North Side Sunday said the girls savagely beat her while calling her racial slurs.
Ginger Slepski said she suffered multiple injuries, including torn shoulder ligaments. She said she thought the girls were going to kill her.
“I thought it was so animalistic. So violent. I’m so afraid for these girls to get out and walk the streets,” Slepski said.
Police said Slepski was savagely beaten after the girls threw a bottle at her car on Concord Street and she stopped to confront them.
“I was mad. I knew they were younger. I thought they were in their early 20s. I got out and said, ‘What is your problem?’” Slepski said.
All four African-American girls then called her names before getting physically violent.
“They yelled, ‘Shut up white [expletive].’ The other said, ‘Get that white [expletive],’” Slepski said.
Paging Attorney General Eric Holder. What a joke that Holder would actually contemplate civil rights and hate crime charges against George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Marin where there was no racial motivation, but in a case like the above attack where there is an obvious racial component, all we hear from Holder is the sound of crickets. Maybe Holder should be charged with a hate crime for his bias in determining what is and is not a hate crime depending on the color of one’s skin who is the attacker.
Well here’s an easy case, Eric. It won’t be too hard to prove a violation of 18 USC 249 or 18 USC 245 in this context. No outrageous self-defense defenses here.
But like in all the other similar cases you refuse to prosecute, the victim here wasn’t one of “your people.” Ginger’s parents didn’t endure the sort of garbage that your wife’s parents did down south. So she isn’t entitled to equal protection of the law, right?
Make no mistake, Ginger isn’t the only victim who won’t get justice from Justice just because of her race. Neither will the parents who were beaten at the Wisconsin State Fair. Nor will the parents in Ohio who saw thugs come on their lawn shouting racial slurs before they beat them.
Oh yeah, ans as The Other McCain reminds us, what say you Eric Holder about the “hate” speech coming from DHS Employs Deranged Race Warrior Ayo Kimathi who has only been placed on administrative leave with pay? Huh?

88 Year old WWII Vet Delbert Belton Attacked (Beaten to Death) in North Spokane, WA by Two Black Male Teens … Update: Delbert Belton Died of Injuries … RIP
Another murder at the hand of two black teen thugs … So let’s get this correct, a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask is a hate crime, but two black teens beating an elderly, white war vet to death is not.
88 year old Delbert Belton, a World War II veteran, was beaten to death Wednesday night, August 21, 2013 around 8 pm in the Eagles Lodge parking lot near the Eagles Ice-A-Rena in North Spokane, Washington. Belton was rushed to the hospital where he was placed in the intensive care unit. Belton died Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center from his injuries. The police are looking for two suspects in the murder that are described as two black teens between the ages of 16 and 19. Both low-life thugs were wearing black clothing, one was wearing a black “Do-Rag”. Delbert Belton served during WWII in Okinawa, was wounded, but survived. However, he could not survive the streets of North Spokane and two black thugs. This man served his country and this is his reward from a generation of thugs where murder has become an epidemic.
Police say two teens assaulted 88-year-old Delbert Belton outside the Eagles Lodge in North Spokane Wednesday night around 8pm. Belton was rushed to the hospital where he was placed in the intensive care unit but later died. Police are actively searching for two suspects. They are described to be 16-19 in age, black males & both wearing black clothing, one was wearing a black “Do-Rag” police say.
Family & friends of Delbert Belton tell KHQ’s Dylan Wohlenhaus that Delbert was “full of life” at 88-years-old. They say Belton loved working on cars and helping out others. Belton also served overseas in the military in WWII.
Friends of Belton say he was wounded in WWII in Okinawa but survived. Police have not said if or what the motive was for the beating. Police believe this was a random attack.
Police are claiming it was a random attack. Why? How do they know it was not a hate crime and this elderly man was not targeted because he was white and an easy mark? Enough of the BS random crap and call it for what it is. The police, the media and the race hustlers would certainly not be calling it random if two white teens assaulted and murdered and elderly black WWI vet.

What say you Barack Obama? What say you Al Shapton? What say you Jesse Jackson? What say you NAACP?
Belton’s daughter-in-law tells KREM-TV that the suspects beat him with flashlights.
“They used those great big heavy flashlights,” Bobbie Belton said. “The doctors said he was bleeding from all parts of his face.”
Spokane Police say they have surveillance images of the attackers — at least one of them has been taken into police custody.
The Major Crimes Detectives are investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
Jesse Jackson Finally Comments on Oklahoma Tenn Thrill Kill … Says He “Frowns Upon” the Senseless Murder of Aussie Baseball Star Chris Lane .. Well Kind Of (Update: Jackson Guilted into Making Full Statement)
Finally Jesse Jackson has a comment, um well sort of …
The Reverend Jesse Jackson was quick to sound off about the Trayvon Martin death and demand justice. Jackson voiced his outrage over the shooting, demanded justice and proclaimed his disgust over the senseless killing. However, he has been noticeable silent when it came to the thrill kill murder of Australian baseball star Chris Lane in Oklahoma. Until yesterday when Jesse Jackson took to Twitter and voiced his moral outrage at the senseless killing of Chris Lane saying that a “thrill kill” of an individual by three bored teens was “frowned upon”. HUH, FROWNED UPON? That’s it? These three thugs, two of which were black, gun down a white kid for the sport of it and all Jackson has it that it is “frowned upon?” Where is the moral outrage Rev. Jackson that you showed in the Trayvon Martin killing? Sorry, but this one is worse. There was no confrontation, there is no question in doubt as to who did what. But sadly for Jackson and the rest of the race hustlers, this story does not fit their narrative and agenda and there fore does not need to be made an issue.
You mean I have to be consistent in my selective moral outrage?
How pathetic, but it is more than what has come from the mouths of race hustler Al Sharpton and President Barack Obama. During yesterday’s White House daily presser, WH press secretary did not even know who Chris Lane was or the murder. They certainly knew who Trayvon Martin was, didn’t they?
By the way, where are the comments from the NAACP, Black Panthers and the rest that were so vocal in the death of Trayvon Martin and so quick to condemn George Zimmerman … cat got your tongue?
UPDATE I: Finally Jesse Jackson and the Rainbow Push Coalition has released a statement on the murder of Chris Lane after being guilted into doing so after Jackson’s previous weak tweet that he “frowned upon” an innocent Aussie being shot in the back by three coward teens. However, still some what tepid compared to his selective outrage in Trayvon’s death. I wonder why?
The recent incidents of violence in America most notably the murder of Christopher Lee an aspiring student athlete from Australia in Oklahoma and the attack of a student on a school bus in Florida once again calls each of us to a collectively resist all forms of violence in our society. In particular black on black violence that disproportionately affects every facet of black life in America. These horrific episodes that leave all rationally thinking people appalled and others feeling paralyzed cannot be addressed by our silence and or abdicating our personal responsibility. We urge all persons who believe as we do in the King principle of peace all over the globe to rise to the challenge to pursue and promote peace and its principles. We must learn to live together in peace or we will most assuredly die apart in our own neglect.
America’s prisons are bursting at their seams and the injustice in our criminal justice system erodes the faith all should have in a democracy so that all believe and trust that it works for all of its citizens. Countless numbers of youth are caught in the vice of violence that leaves an indelible mark on its victims, communities are terrorized, and many live in urban policed militarized zones. This perpetuates an evolving taste of disgust that can only be quenched by our voices and resources used in a concerted effort to enhance and advance crime prevention in our communities. As we remember Dr. King who likewise was victim of gun violence we must all defend the dream of a free and peaceful America.
Liberal Media, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Obama Avoid the story of Three Black Teens Kick, Beat and Stomp White Kid on Florida Scool Bus Because He Would Not Buy Their Drugs
Hey Barack Obama, if you had a son, would these three teens look like you too? How about the white kid who had his rights violated and was stomped on?
So three black teen thugs beat the tar out of a white kid on a Florida public school bus and low and behold the liberal MSM, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, liberals, and President Barack Obama are suddenly silent. The boy in the video below suffered two black eyes, bruising and a broken hand. Where is the outrage of this racial beat down? The dispute was supposedly over the fact that the 13 year old boy had gone to school officials after he had been confronted earlier with the three thugs attempting too sell him marijuana. Just curious, is this the only individual who had refused to buy from them? Or was this the only white one? Why do we see no other videos of any other beatings by this group of thugs?
The dispute began on July 9 when one of the three boys tried to sell the younger boy marijuana while the two were in a bathroom at their drop out prevention school, prompting the younger teen to notify school officials, according to WFLA.com.
Later that day, Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight and Lloyd Khemradj were on the bus when they confronted their peer about the incident and began beating him while the school bus driver 64-year-old John Moody began to panic and call for help.
The three teens were arrested and the liberal media was silent.
Where is the “no justice, no peace crowd”? Could you just imagine if the rolls were revered and three white kids kicked the snot out of a younger black teen like in the video above? Do you think that Jackson, Sharpton or Obama would care that it was over a refused drug sale and retaliation? Where are the folks clambering for Justice for Trayvon? Hardly. The focus would only be on the color of the skin of the victim and attackers. The police and state prosecutors stated that race was not a factor. Really? Didn’t the Sanford, FL police and prosecutors say the same with George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin at the outset?
Just curious, where is Barack Obama interjecting himself in this one? Or is ok to beat up a white kid, give him two black eyes, bruising and a broken hand for saying no to drugs? But I guess because Obama admitted to doing drugs as a kid this would be deemed al right. This is what we get from a so-called president who does nothing but divide us and split America in two. Where is the outrage that a kid cannot ride a bus without having three drug selling thugs kick the crap out of him? Who cares whether the victim is white, black or purple … there is no way this was the first time that there three thugs acted to terrorize individuals in this school.
The original story from WFLA-TV News Channel 8:
Gulfport police recently released surveillance video from a school bus that shows the bus driver’s perspective of a beating earlier this month.
In the video from July 9th, the victim is sitting in the second seat of the Pinellas school bus with his head down. The violence starts as soon as he stands-up to get off the bus.
The bus driver, John Moody can be heard yelling for somebody to try to stop them and calls dispatch for help, “I got a fight. I need help in a hurry, I got a fight I need help in a hurry.”
The punches and kicks continue, and the victim falls between the seats. At one point you can hear his screams on the video. The bus driver yells at the attackers, “leave that boy alone,” but doesn’t try to intervene physically.
Ted Nugent Says, ‘Trayvon Got Justice,’ as Anti-American Libs Try to Stop Free Speech … Calls Petitioners “Idiots” and “Subhuman Numbnuts” & Calls Out Barack Obama and Eric Holder
Whether you love him or hate him, Ted Nugent, the Motor City Madman rocker is allowed his “free speech” as afforded by the United States Constitution.
During an interview with Maine radio station WGAN, Nugent defended his recent comments regarding Trayvon Martin, blacks and crime and those that think that he should not play rock and roll in Connecticut were “idiots”. Those that have an issue with the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution have started a petition to prevent Nugent from performing at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT. Really folks, this is how you direct your energies? Nugent called a group of petitioners who want his August gig at the nightclub Toad’s Place in New Haven canceled “subhuman numbnuts.” I guess it is safe to say that none of the “numbnuts” will be attending his concert. These same “idiots” are the ones who are claiming that “Justice for Trayvon” and wanting to get Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ to file a Civil Rights case against George Zimmerman. Oh the irony, as at the same time the collective “idiots” are trying to take away Ted Nugent’s freedom of speech. What a shock that there is a liberal double standard.
Ted Nugent stated that “Trayvon Martin got justice”. Personally, I think this is a poor choice of words because of how individuals define justice. What Trayvon Martin got was his day in court. Initially that is what Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Martin’s parents and the liberal MSM wanted when they made this story a race issue and forced Florida to try the death of Trayvon after prosecutors in Sanford. FL had decided not to. But that is not what they really wanted, they wanted their pound of flesh from George Zimmerman. They were only after a guilty verdict no matter what the evidence showed. They could not accept a jury’s “not guilty” verdict in the case and now are seeking other avenues of going after Zimmerman. As if this case has not been exploited enough.
Ted Nugent expresses his views as only the ‘Motor City Madman’ can …
When asked about the “idiots” in Connecticut who think he “shouldn’t play rock and roll,” Nugent told the conservative host: “You and I stand on the line of reason” and must not be silenced.
“People who hate Ted Nugent hate freedom,” he said, and promised to continue to speak what he sees as the truth.
Nugent also had some choice things to say about liberals, racial activists and Trayvon Martin during the interview.
Defending his previous comments about blacks and crime, Nugent insisted the statistics bear him out.
Of the Trayvon Martin case, Nugent said, “Trayvon got justice.” He went on to say that Martin was a “gangsta wannabe” who had a “bloodthirst,” as evidenced by the fact that he was supposedly eager to “get into fights with people.” He said Martin showed racism in calling George Zimmerman a “cracka.”
Ted Nugent went on to say …
Nugent said Zimmerman got only a “sliver of justice.” Although Zimmerman was found not guilty, powerful people from President Barack Obama to Attorney General Eric Holder have targeted him, as have “Holder’s best friends,” the New Black Panthers. Nugent implied the president and Holder are trying to subvert the legitimate verdict in the case.
“It pains me deeply” to have to acknowledge that the president and some others in the administration are “just bad people,” Nugent said. He said he had hoped to be able to speak better of the country’s top officials.
Good Grief … Rev. Jesse Jackson Calls Florida the ‘Selma of our time’ … What an Insult to Selma, AL!
What an insult to Selma, Alabama.
The race-baiter Jesse Jackson compared Florida and their “stand your ground” to the civil rights marches that took place in Selma, AL and called it, “the Selma of our time”. Really Rev. Jackson, really? Florida Gov. Rick Scott asked for an apology to the insult to Floridians. However, I disagree. It is not Floridians who should be asking for the apology, it is those from Selma, Alabama who should demand the apology. The murder trial of George Zimmerman, in which he was found not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin, had nothing to do with “stand your ground” laws. It was just simple self-defense. However, that had not prevented as Bill O’Reilly refers to Jackson as the race hustlers hijacking Trayvon’s death and memory. Worse yet, they are making a mockery out of real civil rights in the United States like Selma, Alabama and the Selma to Montgomery marches, also known as Bloody Sunday and the two marches that followed. It is those that marched in Selma who Jesse Jackson owes an apology to.
Remember when I used to be relevant …
Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday accused Rev. Jesse Jackson of insulting Floridians with a series of reckless and divisive statements about the state and its “stand your ground” self-defense law.
While visiting the state Capitol Tuesday, Jackson talked about efforts to repeal the law and used the phrase “Selma of our time” — a reference to civil rights marches in Alabama that helped prompt change in the 1960s.
In a July 18 exchange on CNN, Jackson talked about an economic boycott to “isolate Florida as a kind of apartheid state given this whole stand your ground laws.”
Scott denounced both comments and demanded an apology, saying the longtime civil rights leader’s words “insult Floridians and divide our state at a time when we are striving for unity and healing.”
It is pathetic that Rev. Jesse Jackson would trivialize the actual Civil Rights movement of the 1960′s to continue to attempt to be relevant and turn a profit. Weasel Zippers‘ title says it best, Jesse Jackson is ‘Compares Gov. Rick Scott To Segregationist George Wallace’? Pathetic indeed.
Bill O’Reilly Blasts ‘Race Hustler’ Al Sharpton: You Have Failed. FAILED! Your Day Is Done! … Make a Lot of Money by Promoting Racial Division
I give Bill O’Reilly a lot of credit for discussing the situation for fear of being branded a racists …
Fox News Bill O’Reilly blasted Al Sharpton, the race hustler for his failure to help the black community and only promote racial division while making money in the process. Previously, O’Reilly did a talking points memo as to what the real problems were in the black community and was spot on. However, the race hustlers like Sharpton could never accept such comments because it did not promote racial divide and Sharpton could not turn a profit off it. It is a sad state of affairs when today’s Civil Rights activists are nothing more than agitators and the MSM gives them credibility. In the end, O’Reilly stated that Sharpton’s days are over, done! I could only hope so for the sake of the black community and racial peace in the United States.
“Sharpton and others are attacking me because I am a threat to them. They have failed. FAILED. to deal with problems in the black community and they make a lot of money promoting racial division… Talking Points believes the day of the race hustler has come to an end. This we and them business gets the country nowhere. There are severe problems in the black community that have to be solved… You bet, Al. Your day is done.”
Check out the talking points memo from O’Reilly that started it all as to the real problems in the black community. To not have a real conversation on the black community, not just racism … is the real racism. How can whites, blacks, anyone just sit by and watch it continue to happen without lifting a finger? O’Reilly called out the black race baiting merchants to address the real problems, not pray on the continued racial division and jump on the anti-George Zimmerman band wagon.
You want a conversation, You got it. The only problem is it has to be an honest conversation and stop the nonsense and for leaders to actually lead the way to a better America and stop the victimization. Those were basically the sentiments of Bill O’Reilly. Of course he will be branded a racist for actually caring and wanting to make a real difference.
Every one should view this honest, hard, tough love video
White Maryland Man Beaten & Robbed by Three Black Men in Racially Motivated Hate Crime Attack Who Yelled …“This Is For Trayvon!”
Just curious, had George Zimmerman been found guilty, would “White” Hispanics been assaulting blacks in revenge attacks yelling, This is for George?
The vigilante Trayvon Martin mob was at it again this weekend. A Bethesda, Maryland white man was beaten and robbed by three black men. The 28 year old white man was attacked in the 1700 block of Euclid Street, Northwest, in Adams Morgan in an obvious racially motivated, bias, hate crime. The three thugs yelled “This is for Trayvon” as they beat and kicked the man. Who really thinks that these thugs watched or have any concept of the evidence presented during the George Zimmerman murder trial?
A note to Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, President Obama, Eric Holder, the New Black Panther Party, the NAACP, blacks, the MSM and Democrats … This is what a hate crime looks like where some one’s Civil Rights are violated!!!
A Bethesda man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning in Adams Morgan by three men who yelled, “This is for Trayvon Martin,” before attacking him, police said.
The incident is being investigated as a hate crime and robbery, according to D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali.
Three black men approached an adult white male from behind while he was walking in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW at 1:26 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Two of the men threw the victim to the ground and kicked him, Alali said. The three perpetrators then took the victim’s iPhone and wallet and fled.
NBC – Washington: The victim suffered lacerations to the face from the attack. Police said the suspects took the man’s wallet and iPhone. The police report lists the incident as robbery force violence, hate bias incident.
But this is what happens when you have an irresponsible MSM, President, Attorney General, faux Civil Rights agitators and Democrat party who insight the crowd and continue demands for justice. I hope Barack Obama and Eric Holder are happy with themselves as stated at NRO, where they “deliberately stoking resentment and tension, under the guise of leading a “national conversation” about race.”
Former NBA great Charles Barkley was 100% correct, when he said there are a lot of black racists as well.
Just curious, where is the outrage from the Civil Rights agitators over a white man getting the hell kicked out of him for revenge of the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict? Where is President calling for calm after he and Eric Holder threw gasoline on the racial fire?
The Hijacking of Trayvon Martin: Jesse Jackson Calls For Boycotting Florida Over “Stand Your Ground” Laws and Compares Florida To Apartheid South Africa … Martin Family Attorney Says Changing “Stand Your Ground” way to “Properly Honor” the Legacy of Trayvon Martin
The hijacking of Trayvon Martin’s memory and the misrepresentation of the George Zimmerman murder trial.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson has called fro the boycott of Florida because of Florida’s ‘Stand your Ground’ laws in the wake of the George Zimmerman “not guilty” jury verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin. Jesse Jackson in his over the top manner has also compared Florida to ‘Apartheid’ South Africa. Really Mr. Jackson, Florida is like “apartheid” South Africa? Such comments from an old and tired race-baiting messager do a dispersive to those that really struggled in South Africa, to the Zimmerman murder trial jury and to Trayvon Martin. Where to begin? First, when will anyone in the race-baiting industry act responsible and honest in the wake of the not guilty Zimmerman verdict? No where in the defense of George Zimmerman was “Stand your Ground” used. NO WHERE!!! In fact, the Zimmerman defense attorneys purposely decided not to use it and instead simply used common self-defense. Making matters even worse, it is a falsehood that ‘stand your ground’ is discriminatory. As reported at the Daily Caller, in Florida blacks benefit from Florida ‘Stand Your Ground’ law at disproportionate rate. Second, you show yourself to be a fool and trivialize apartheid in South Africa to the death of one individual, in which a jury returned a “not guilty” verdict.
Hard to give Jackson any credibility when he had no problem with Castro’s Cuba
Stevie Wonder isn’t the only one who wants to boycott Florida over its “stand your ground” law, which served as a backdrop in the recent not guilty verdict for George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson said Friday he also wanted a boycott of the state.
“We can boycott Florida, cut conventions in Florida, for its ‘stand your ground’ laws,” said Jackson, speaking on a panel at the National Urban League’s annual conference in Philadelphia. “If we can boycott South Africa and bring it down, we should boycott Florida and bring it down.”
Jackson made the comments less than a week after Florida’s governor, Rick Scott, said he wouldn’t change the controversial law that allows people to use physical force in self-defense without a duty to retreat.
Benjamin Crump, the attorney for the Martin family, also spoke at the conference Friday, where he said that changing “stand your ground” was the way to “properly honor” the legacy of Trayvon Martin.
The Gateway Pundit reminds us of an important little fact, Jesse Jackson compares Florida to apartheid South Africa; however, Jackson is perfectly ok with Fidel Castro’s Cuba. Now which one would be considered more like the oppressive apartheid South Africa, Florida or Cuba?
Oh wait, and then there is Benjamin Crump, the attorney for the Martin family, who says that changing “stand your ground” was the way to “properly honor” the legacy of Trayvon Martin. HOW? Why don’t they also change the speeding laws, drunk driving and drug possession laws as well in Florida as a way of honoring Trayvon Martin? All of these laws had as much to do with the George Zimmerman murder trial as did stand your ground!
