It’s Come to This… Florida Marchers Compare Trayvon Martin to Jesus Christ

Florida protesters today compared Trayvon Martin to Jesus Christ.

Newser reported:

Leaders from the NAACP and other groups led a massive crowd through the streets of Sanford, Florida, today to demand the arrest of George Zimmerman—and deny reports of an economic boycott, the Orlando Sentinel reports. “We want an arrest, shot in the chest,” chanted the crowd, which MSNBC estimated in the thousands. They stopped outside police headquarters for speeches and a benediction comparing Trayvon Martin’s death to that of Jesus Christ.

Civil rights luminaries like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and NAACP President Benjamin Jealous were in attendance.

    I posted several days ago Zimmerman is the one receiving the Pontius Pilate treatment. He was examined by authorities and found to be innocent, but a blood thirsty mob won’t have it and wants Zimmerman dead. Authorities may wash their hands of the truth and turn an honest man acting in self defense over to punishment , fearing a lynch mob. We will have lost something precious in America if this happens…..Obama is taking away our right to due process and a fair trial.

    Pity poor Saint Trayvon of Sanford. Martyred near a tree of racism just as his abilities in public art and jewelry acquisition were beginning to blossom. And, the tragic effects on his poor parents who were forced to seek solace by trademarking the blessed’s name via the US Patent Office, no doubt, to be shortly followed by a lawsuit against the callous manufacturers and purveyors of Skittles and whatever ice tea it was that, no doubt, drove this obviously sugar-intolerant young boy of only 17 years and over 6 feet in height into a condition easily misinterpreted as threatening by racist cretins wanting to establish their gun-fetish credentials by slaughtering someone whose fruitful future path was just beginning to become clear. And the Pope who insisted upon having his Caribbean holiday when he should be in Roma expediting the beatification process.

    It’s a great tragedy when the good people of the USofA are reduced to hoping that at the very least, Saint Trayon gets to meet up with Tupac some place or other.

  • If Trayvon is the new Jesus, wouldn’t that mean tha giving in to the demands of his worshipers to arrest/indict/prosecute/jail/execute George Zimmerman constitute an establishment of religion?

    “Tea” – a much older term for marijuana, made popular dating back from the 1930′s. today it is considered obsolete and a great way to cover up what you’re REALLY talking about.
    ………….”man, if i had some tea, i’d be in herbal heaven.”

    “Skittles” – also known as beans, ecstasy, rolls, E, X, Adam, Stacy, Clarity
    …………. “Hey dawg how much for 30 skittles”?

    “Skittles” – With Skittle bag, sometimes used to refer to miscellaneous heterogeneous mix of various narcotic pills, jumbled up in a bag (usually leftovers donated to the communal skittle bag). Often multicolored like a bag of skittles. Incredibly dangerous, as the actual contents are often unknown, and, thusly, the effects are often a surprise high.
    …………….. “Yo, break open the bag o’ skittles and let’s do some lines”.

    “Skittles” – Skittles aka dxm, and somtimes known as ecstasy, Coricidin (DXM) abusers refer to the bright-red pills as “Skittles.”

    Another odd dimension to this entire narrative of going to the 7-11 for “Tea and Skittles” is the distance from where he was to the nearest convienience store. MarketTicker asks the question and does some simple research: Trayvon Martin was allegedly out at night, on foot and in a rainstorm getting iced tea and skittles. Ok, here’s the address where the altercation took place from the police report:

    2381 Retreat View Cir Sanford, FL 32771 – Now go to Google Maps and type in that address. Next, find me a convenience store — you know, a place to buy skittles and an iced tea. Just type in “convenience store” in the “Search Nearby” box. Where’s the closest one and how far is it on foot?

    The purple DOT is his location. The closest “convienience store” is a mile away. In a rainstorm, for a bag of skittles and can of iced tea, both ways? Possible? Sure. Plausible? That story ought to be able to be checked, and rather easily — all convenience stores these days have video recorders.

    So has anyone checked to see if indeed the deceased hiked the anywhere from 2-4 miles to and from one of the half-dozen convenience stores in the general area (none closer than about a mile on foot, incidentally, and all somewhat of a pain in the ass to get to due to what appears to be a limited access highway — 417 — between the location and the stores which would force you to walk quite a bit further than you could go “as the crow flies”.)

    These are pretty basic questions. In fact the closest convenience store is a Murphy USA; to reach the others north of the location (the ones south are a LOT further) you’d have to walk past it, so it’s highly likely that’s the store — if the story of going out for skittles and iced tea holds up.

    Does it? Has anyone checked?

    Chicago Murder Rate Up 56%

    FOX Chicago News

    Chicago – We need to talk about the epidemic of violence that is raging on the streets of Chicago.

    The numbers can only be described as terrifying.

    Thirteen people were shot and two killed in six hours on Thursday. There have been 23 murders in the past two weeks, and 117 already this year.

    Chicago’s murder rate is up 56 percent over last year.

    The people of Chicago are caught in the crossfire, and we are going to take an in-depth look at the violence.

    Why is it happening?

    Who is to blame?

    What, if anything, can we do about it?

    I ask the black leaders, Black Panthers, Civil Right Activists, where are you, Oh, marching for Jesus? When will these leaders really step up to the plate and help the children involved in Gangs, just doing what kids do and then shot for nothing but sitting on a Porch at their home.

    No, they compare a troubled kid to Jesus. What has this nation become? Where are those with real courage to take on a job, that Jesus, the real one, was trying to do. HELP, BRING OUT THE GREATEST IN HUMANS.

    Instead these so called leaders, March, March, this is not the 30’s, 40’s or 50’s it is a time when couple have kids and then the father usually leaves to make more babies or sell more dope. A continuous process of Welfare and dependency on Government.

    Sharpton has always wanted to be the next Martin Luther King. He is looking for his big break using this death for his own benefit.

    Lead, stop the blame and hate and do the real hard work and make things better and save some kids in need of saving.

    The Absence of Black Leadership in America – March for Trayvon in Sanford, Florida

    Today a peaceful rally was held, led by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and NAACP leaders. They led a march to the Sanford, Florida police station to demand the arrest of George Zimmerman, the shooter of Trayvon Martin. Sharpton and Jackson have been extremely vocal about their demand for justice. Al Sharpton is a show host on MSNBC and regularly uses that platform to put forth his opinions. In fact, neither Sharpton or Jackson miss an opportunity to be in front of the camera.

    Here are their remarks today:

    The purpose of today’s rally is for Sanford PD to bring Mr. Zimmerman to justice,” said Benjamin Todd Jealous, National NAACP President and CEO. “We are all united in our call for justice to be done here in Sanford. And it’s clear that this community is coming together around this call for Mr. Zimmerman to be brought to justice. That is why we are here today. We are joined by NAACP branches from across the southeast from as far away as South Carolina. And people from throughout this community — students, parents, teachers. We’re tired of racial profiling. We’re tired of the lives of young black men, not being treated with the same level of importance when they’re killed as we see when people of other races, other genders, when they’re killed. We’re here to say ‘Save our sons’. Bring Mr. Zimmerman to justice.”

    Reverend Al Sharpton also called for an arrest in the killing of Trayvon.

    “The real story is this, with all of these marches and all of these gatherings, there’s not been any violence. There’s not been one incident. Report that,” Rev. Al Sharpton said. “And don’t act as though that is not without the discipline and infrastructure of the organizations involved. There are ministers marching right now in London, England with hoodies on. It’s all over the world, under one aim alone — that on probable cause, the killer should be arrested. We have not said what to charge him with, we’re not trying him before a trial. Those on the other side are. They’re trying to acquit him! We’re just saying with probable cause, he should be arrested. And we are going to keep marching. We’re going to keep praying. We’re going to keep doing whatever is necessary in order to make that happen.”

    Demanding that justice be done in this case is, of course, a good thing, and and important thing. Both Sharpton and Jackson have done a superb job of keeping this tragedy in the media forefront. But, are they accomplishing anything? Do they realize that a special prosecutor is currently investigating this case?

    According to the AP:

    The special prosecutor leading the investigation into the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a neighborhood watch volunteer is known for her tough tactics aimed at locking up criminals for long sentences and making it difficult to negotiate light plea bargains.

    Furthermore, 57-year-old Angela Corey has handled hundreds of homicide cases involving the justifiable use of deadly force — experience that could prove invaluable. It will be up to Corey whether to charge 28-year-old George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who says he was defending himself when he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during a scuffle. Martin was unarmed as he walked from a convenience store, and the case has become a racial flashpoint with protesters across the nation calling for his arrest. Zimmerman’s father is white, his mother Hispanic.

    Instead of letting the special prosecutor perform her job, and encouraging Trayvon’s supporters to do the same, it appears that Sharpton and Jackson are simply grandstanding for the cameras, demanding justice, without any interest in waiting for it.

    Funny how George martin is considered a white hispanic but 1/8 black (3/8 Arab and 1/2 white trash mama) is not considered a white african-american, or actually white hybrid Kenyan. Meanwhile actual innocent, little black kids are being butchered again quite recently by black thugs. Obama needs to find him some lily white skinhead who killed a black. I think his real agenda is to end 2nd amendment rights. Working quickly toward a UN treaty to disarm law-abiding Americans so only his brown shirt private army, the military and criminals have guns. And the sheeple accept it. Private ownership of guns in Chicago, D.C. and Detroit is illegal and innocent victims are murdered daily. Impeach Obama and throw him and Holder into jail for treason just in the Gun Walker scandal south of the border and Texas.

    Mark Levin: Who the hell died and made Al Sharpton Attorney General?

    Mark Levin wonders how Phil Griffin, host of MSNBC, can allow Al Sharpton to host his show on MSNBC while he is escalating civil disobedience to try and manipulate the criminal justice system in the Trayvon Martin case. And further, he asks if this is even how we handle the rule of law and justice in America, that someone like Al Sharpton creates an angry mob to force law enforcement to take steps based on his pressure?

    Here’s the audio:

  • Patty

    “And Sharpton is — let’s be honest, as I’ve been here from the beginning — more than anything else, a Democrat operative. Sharpton’s been to the White House many, many times. Jesse Jackson, a Democrat operative, Democrat operatives, in Sharpton’s case, who has a TV show and is trying to interfere with the rule of law. Let us put this correctly, Sharpton is trying to create a mob, an angry mob. And Sharpton is trying to force law enforcement, including prosecutors, to take steps based on his pressure, based on mob rule, not based on the facts. Now I ask you this America — is this the kind of country you want? Is this the kind of country that you’re comfortable with?”

    Exclusive – Palin to Couric: ‘Game On’
    When news broke that Katie Couric will be filling in for Robin Roberts next week on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” the country yawned. Or, at least we did, until we learned that NBC plans to pit “The Rogue Warrior” against “The Perky One”: Sarah Palin will be guest-hosting “Today” this Tuesday.

    NBC’s decision to seat the former Alaska Governor-turned-multimedia star in their anchor chair will likely prove to be a fruitful one. Since coming onto the national scene in 2008, Palin has become one of the most charismatic figures in conservative America and will likely bring “Today” an entirely different demographic of viewers.

    “I see this as a good opportunity to bring an independent, common-sense conservative perspective to NBC. We’re ‘going rogue’ and infiltrating some turf for a day,” Palin told Breitbart News.

    Palin and Couric will be squaring off, in a sense, for the first time since their controversial interview on the 2008 campaign trail.

    When Breitbart News asked for a comment about the fact that she will be competing with Couric, Gov. Palin responded simply: “Game on.”

    I agree that Sharpton is a despicable person. I can’t stand the guy.

    But I’m curious what people think about Zimmerman’s actions that night. It seems to me that if he had just left the kid alone, or at least stayed in his car, nothing would have happened. I haven’t heard anyone suggest that the kid had done anything wrong that night when Zimmerman started tracking him.

    Does everyone agree that Zimmerman should have left the kid alone?

    #70. In a nutshell:

    That “kid” was a 6′ 2″ or 3″, 200+lb predator. Mr. Zimmerman was doing what he was supposed to be doing that night; patrolling the neighborhood, which is a gated community.
    Zimmerman was attacked by Trayvon…who hasn’t been an innocent child for several years…and because Trayvon decided to be a thug that night, he is now dead.

  • Sasja

    Need some clarification.

    Last week, or whenever it was, I read that Trayvon was supposed to be staying with his father, who was staying with his girlfriend. But Trayvon’s father thought Trayvon was staying someplace else. Any more on this?

    Does Trayvon’s father’s girlfriend live in that neighborhood? I have not seen anything that would indicate she does, or she doesn’t.

    Texas boy killed by 2 teens: race of 2 teens unmentioned. Imagine that. Their names were also not released. (Contrast to a pro-Zimmerman 13-year old witness being completely outed.)

    No known motive.


    This one in Los Angeles.

  • Monkey Wrench


    What makes you think the kid attacked Zimmerman? Do you think the kid was wandering around all by himself looking for someone to attack? What was his motive? You called the kid a predator. So you think the kid intended to commit a serious crime that night? I haven’t heard anyone suggest that the kid had committed a crime or had any intention of committing a crime that night.

    I’ll say this, I would not want Zimmerman driving around my neighborhood with a gun.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Monkey Wrench

    There is Zimmerman’s account…he was driving home, and saw Martin walking in people’s YARDS, in a gated community which Zimmerman had been tasked with watching.

    Let me quote another wise GP’er here, as she summed it up perfectly:

    So I’m thinking “this is my child” in regards to Trayvon.
    First my child would not gate-jump onto private property.
    My child would not scurry in the dark behind the homes on said property.
    My child would not cause anyone to suspect he was casing those homes.
    My child would not fear a neighborhood watchman.
    My child would not attack said watchman.
    My child would not get shot in the attack.

    So, Reverand Al Preach This:
    Raise your children not to tresspass on private property, not to scurry around in the dark like a thief, not to case what belongs to others, not to fear neighborhood watchmen (afterall, if you’re not up to something there’s nothing to fear), and most importantly not to attack anyone, much less the watchman – you may get shot.

    If Trayvon had been taught the basic rules of a civil society he would be back in school by now…stealing jewelry and punching bus drivers.


    Make up your mind on April 9th. That’s when the grand jury convenes and tells us their decision regarding all of this.

    I’ve already told people: whatever they decide, I’m cool with it.

    Unfortunately those who want blood will not be “cool with” anything besides Murder in the First, with the death penalty.

    Lynch mobs seldom quit until they get their quarry.

    Here in Ladue many of us have guns. My neighbor and carry while running, because it’s dark at 5 am.

    I think the reason for the “neighborhood watch” patrol speaks volumes. Zimmerman said he was jumped by Traycon who threatened to kill him.

    The fact that the media is intent on trying Zimmerman themselves, editing 9-11 tapes on their programs, and fomenting violence is a big red flag.

  • Sasja

    There is also the 911 tape with Zimmerman calling for help while Trayvon was banging his head against the sidewalk, along with an eye witness account of what happened which corroborates Zimmerman’s account. Zimmerman suffered a broken nose and at least one laceration to the back of his head.

  • Monkey Wrench

    We can all agree that Sharpton is an idiot.

    I just worry that there will soon be a bunch of want-a-be cops roaming the streets looking for problems. Police go through extensive training in how to deal with a situation like this. A guy like Zimmerman is not equipped or trained to do this type of work.

    Zimmerman should have just reported the kid to the police and then stayed away from him. Didn’t the police tell Zimmerman to not pursue the kid? That seems like good advice from a professional.

  • Sasja

    Taqiy. I don’t carry all the time. Depends on where I need to go. One thing I do not do, is obey those stupid no guns allowed signs. As tho some nut with a gun, looking to do harm, is going to obey some stupid sign. Give me a break. I am not going to become a victim.

    I guess we’ll have to see just what is what with Trayvon. Does anyone know if he really did have a bag of skittles (or skillets as rev al says) and a can of tea? Somehow I can’t picture him as drinking tea, but you never know,

  • Sasja

    We don’t have a neighborhood watch program where I now live, but we did in my old neighborhood. We never went out alone. Only in pairs.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    No, Monkey Wench.

    A civilian 9-1-1 operator told Zimmerman “we don’t need you to do that”, to which he replied… “O.K.” and, by his account began walking back to his vehicle.

    At some point he was confronted by this 17 year old punk and threatened, and then punched in the nose, and the knocked down, and then straddled, and then had his head beaten into the concrete sidewalk more than once, and then he said “I’VE HAD ENOUGH.”

    And he was within his rights.

    You can’t assault someone for keeping an eye on you.

    Zimmerman wasn’t chasing Martin down, he was watching him, while remaining in contact with




    You watch a lot of TV, I bet. I can tell. It shows.

  • Sasja

    Monkey Wrench. I think the dispatcher told him that he didn’t need to follow Tayvon, or words to that effect. Supposedly that’s when Zimmerman turned to go back to his vehicle and was jumped by Trayvon. Read where Zimmerman had lost sight of Trayvon by that time anyway.

    I don’t know if Zimmerman committed a crime. A grand jury and/or a prosecutor will decide if he should be charged. If he’s charged, a jury will decide if he is guilty of a crime.

    Am I the only one who would be uncomfortable with Zimmerman patrolling my neighborhood with a gun, looking for trouble? I don’t trust his judgement. What if he decides that my neighbor’s kid “looks suspicious” or my wife?

    The police reject a lot of people that want to be police and carry a gun for all the wrong reasons. That’s why the police put applicants through psychological screenings.

    One more thing. At one point, Zimmerman was in his vehicle when he first observed the kid. Would a trained police officer then get out of his vehicle and put himself in a situation where he could be ambushed by a 17 year old kid? Of course not. He would call for backup and keep himself protected until other officers arrived. Trained police officers know how to protect themselves.

    #94 “Am I the only one who would be uncomfortable with Zimmerman patrolling my neighborhood with a gun, looking for trouble? I don’t trust his judgement.”

    After reading about Trayvon’s life and his tweets: Zimmerman most likely saved the society a lot of money and a lot of people from becoming victims as Trayvon was going downhill fast. Black crime needs proactive people.

    So you have read tweets that some news organization claims were made by this kid and other news accounts of his life and determined that society is better off now that this 17 year old kid is dead. Yikes.

    Don’t you hate people like Sharpton, who has already decided that Zimmerman is guilty of first degree murder and the kid is an innocent victim? Me too.

    So once again liberals who normally never give thought to Christianity make the comparison between Jesus and someone with a shady past who we can’t speak honestly about without being deemed racist?

    I somehow left out in #95 that this happened in February and the police decided that Zimmerman’s story holds. That is good enough for me.

    funny the ones proclaiming christian values are the ones furthest away from the Divine… “in his image”.. WE’RE ALL THE SON OF GOD !!!! but I understand it’ll be hard to see when filled with so much hate. I suggest we all look in the mirror to see if WE reflect the face of Jesus.

    As the debate over the killing of the 17yr old teen in Florida continues to heat up, there has been a rallying cry that has gone up “We are Trayvon Martin”. Meant to symbolize the solidarity of the struggle against injustice. It is a nice poetic sentiment. One that echoes the wish that we could treat each other as equals regardless of skin color or economic differences.

    But that is a dream. The truth is, “WE ARE GEORGE ZIMMERMAM”……..

    Bullsh!t. A cop is not calling for backup to deal with a lone individual walking down the street.

  • Winston Wolfe

    Didn’t the police tell Zimmerman to not pursue the kid? That seems like good advice from a professional.

    Why do people like you consistently get this wrong?

    It was not the police. It was dispatch. And they have no authority to dictate anything to anyone.

    And second, the actual quote is, OK. We don’t need you to do that.

    That’s hell and gone from ‘the police telling him not to pursue.’

    Well, to be quite honest Jesus was “No Limit”

  • O of many O’s

    I wonder why I’m not reading or hearing any news about the other billions of allegedly innocent kids being killed by people with guns as much as I’m hearing about Trayvon Martin.
