Zimmerman Acquitted: Political agitators move in, race mobs on standby

Editor’s Note: Anyone who reacts to this verdict as “racist” has fallen helplessly into a politically correct, psychological operation by corporate media and political opportunists who seek to capitalize on division – the very same corporate media that have disingenuously labeled Zimmerman a “white hispanic”  just so he could fit into their prefabricated ‘race hate’ narrative.

21st Century Wire says…

Jurors in the George Zimmerman trial reached a verdict just before 10pm EST on Saturday night – turning in a not guilty verdict.

Details are still forthcoming about a retrial in either a criminal or civil court, as well as a DOJ prosecution effort through federal courts.

Due to the racially charged atmosphere surrounding the case, the country remains on edge this weekend with many cities bracing themselves for racially motivated, random reprisal attacks and riots in retaliation to the Zimmerman decision.

White House Adviser, political activist and professional agitator, Al Sharpton, has called the jury’s verdict “an atrocity”, and has vowed to mobilise his ‘supporters’ crowd down in Florida in the coming days, a move which will almost certainly inflame the situation and stir-up a sustained media storm during the coming weeks. Sharpton stated:

“I will convene an emergency call with preachers tonight to discuss next steps and I intend to head to Florida in the next few days.”

The ‘New Black Panthers’

New Black Panther leader Samir Shabazz publicly stated earlier this week that his organisation is preparing to ‘take the fight to white people’ living in American suburbs:

“This time we’re doing it right… This time we’re not burning down our communities. This time we’re going out to Whitey’s suburbs and burning down HIS community. We’re going to make Whitey feel the pain.”

Shabazz, who has also made comments insinuating about ‘killing white babies’, also remarked about how he would “love nothing more than to come home with a cracker’s head in my book bag.” 

It’s important to note here that the ‘New Black Panthers’ (NBP) have no actual affiliation, or any endorsement from the original Black Panther Movement, which is survived by the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation. Critics have accused the Tampa, FLA-based group of hijacking the name in order to invent credibility and gain support from the black community at large.

Many pundits have speculated as to why none of the NBP leaders have been arrested or held for questioning by federal authorities after to publicly inciting racial violence in both 2012, and in 2013 – as being down to the possibility that at least one of the NBP leaders is in fact reporting to a US federal agency like the FBI under a ‘informant status’. Listen to an NBP radio interview which aired on Florida radio last April:


Problem, reaction, solution

As a direct result of the politicization and racial tension which was injected at the early stages of the Zimmerman case, the conversation has festered into a black vs. white narrative. President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and Presidential Adviser Al Sharpton, all weighed-in early on the Zimmerman-Martin Affair in 2012, which has fuel a media-driven, racially charged national conversation over the case in Sanford, Florida.

National broadcaster NBC also helped to polarise coverage early on by first doctoring and then airing audio clips of George Zimmerman’s 911 call to the police, which they were forced to admit gave the impression that the caller, Zimmerman, was ‘racially profiling’ the victim Trayvon Martin.

According to documents obtained by Judicial Watch, it has also been revealed that AG Eric Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) secretly spent thousands in federal tax dollars in order to prop-up ‘Trayvon support demonstrations in Sanford last year, which contributed to politically charging and injecting race into the case. 

The public reaction has been that of outrage and division ever since, inspiring an explosion of racial threats from different media quarters, including social media. The threat of potential civil unrest and random attacks has apparently given law enforcement emergency powers to apprehend anyone insinuating threats on Twitter and Facebook.

The Lake County News-Sun has already reported how a  Chicago-area teen has been charged with a felony for tweeting that he’d ‘shoot everyone in his town if George Zimmerman is set free’. See tweet here:

Other emergency enforcement measures around the country are likely to include “Shelter in place” directives by police, forced curfews, checkpoints, house to house searches and fire arm confiscations, and perhaps a declaration of temporary Marshal Law in some urban areas should violence begin break out resembling an Rodney King/LA riot situation.

RESULT: Less rights, less privacy and less freedom.

What other black leaders are saying about the verdict

In stark contrast to the political agitation from White House advisers like Al Sharpton being are all over the mainstream media, other black leaders have been weighing in on the Zimmerman verdict with a considerable more leveled head.

Project 21 was formed in 1992 when the riots following the verdict in the Rodney King case revealed a need to highlight the diversity of opinion within the black community. Here is what the black community advocacy members from Project 21 are saying:

“Six women, some of them mothers themselves, found George Zimmerman not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Although Mr. Zimmerman was acquitted, there are no winners in this tragic case. A teenager is deceased and a young man’s family is mourning. George Zimmerman will never have a normal life again. I call for all sides to respect the verdict reached by a jury of Mr. Zimmerman’s peers and honor Trayvon’s memory by letting peace prevail in the streets.”

Christopher Arps – managing partner of a digital media and political consulting firm and a co-founder of the black political networking website Move-On-Up.org.

“To celebrate justice rendered in this case is not an admission or an articulation that Trayvon Martin deserved what happened to him that fateful night in February of 2012. As most will acknowledge, it’s a sad and unfortunate thing that Martin lost his life and that his parents had to bury their son. The jury ruled – considering the evidence presented – rightly in my opinion. George Zimmerman is innocent of the filed charges against him. Despite the considerable emotion surrounding this case, justice has been served. It is not ‘justice for Trayvon.’ Nor it is ‘justice for George.’ It is simply justice.”

Derryck Green – graduate student, with an M.A. in Theological Studies and is currently pursuing his doctorate in ministry.

“The justice system did what it is supposed to do – get to the bottom of what happened. Agree or not, our system works. George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, by his own admission. He has to live with that, and I believe God will judge him for that action. But the jury decided that action did not rise to the level of manslaughter or murder. I accept and respect that. We all should, whether or not we agree with it.” 

Coby Dillard is a founder of the Hampton Roads Tea Party in southern Virginia, a regular columnist for the 
Norfolk Virginian Pilot and a Navy veteran.

“George Zimmerman has been found not guilty. Regardless of how people feel about it, we must still show love and have compassion one for another.” 

Demetrius Minor, a former White House intern, is an evangelist and motivational speaker.

Here is what some other members of the black community are also saying about the situation…

Judging by the diversity of opinion within the black community, the tone struck by the White House, the Sharptons and Jacksons of the world, and of course MSNBC – could be a very long way from echoing the true sentiment of the black community in America.

The crux of the whole media and political agitation campaign rests on the accusation of “racial profiling” by Zimmerman against Martin, yet no one can proof such a claim. Stefan Molyneux, host of Freedomain Radio, discusses the background, evidence and reality of the situation:

Many commentators feel there is a real danger in the media whirl-wind being stirred up by this case, as the subsequent sectarian public reactions threaten to set back race relations at least 20-30 years in America, as seen in the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case, where “black vs white” has been inserted as the overwhelming theme by social influencers in both the media and politics. The result would push the nation toward a race war that would quickly morph into class warfare.

The other knock-on effect which the corporate media and political agitators are not talking about yet are the secondary effects of random black-on-white reprisals – namely, fueling secondary white reprisals, and providing new relevancy to backward, archaic white supremest groups in the process. 

Any rioting or revenge attacks which might take place as a result of this verdict could very well backfire on the current US administration who played in active role in carrying the current situation to where it is today.

Events taking place and policies enacted in the wake of this media-driven, national upheaval – will determine what was the real agenda that begun back in April 2012, which is still in motion.
