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

Florida protesters today compared Trayvon Martin to Jesus Christ.

Really?
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.

    Oh com’n.

    Poking fun at this comparison is too easy.

  • Diane Harvey

    Skittles will become the new communion in the Church of Loons.

    Cracks in the so-called monolith. This is a good sign. These guys have to deal with the local blowback, not Sharpton who is acting like some neo-colonialist sweeping in telling everyone what to do, then running away, never sticking around for the aftermath.

    As a high school Sunday school teacher, I have now found my lesson for tomorrow! Thanks, Tray and your blasphemous supporters! For some reason, I don’t think you are in heaven.

  • Neck Beard

    Let’em keep talking. Eventually, they’ll alienate enough people with this ridiculousness that it will turn into another OWS flop. I hope they push for a St. Skittles Day.

    That’ll work for Barry…he did say Trayvon could have been his son.

  • Tee Dub

    Even Jesus Christ would be hard pressed to not be offended by the comparison.

  • vityas

    It’s vulgar in the truest sense of the word.

  • Practical Jane

    Of course this makes sense to them.
    The son of The Won would by extension be Jesus….with a grill.

  • Sasja

    I remember, a while back when the homeless were the big deal, the faux reverand Jackson using Mary and Joseph as examples of being homeless. Whatever fits their crises de jour.

    Now, would not the FCC be interested in this? And what are the sponsors of the Today Show thinking?

    I wonder when they will realize that their silly marches just don’t matter anymore. We are done with that stuff.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    …and a benediction comparing Trayvon Martin’s death to that of Jesus Christ.

    You know what’s funny? On the Newser page where the story appears, over 60% rate it as annoying.

    Blacks, continuing the fine tradition of not producing anything of value.

  • Rock

    Has anyone told these fools the real picture of the budding young hood are now a matter of public record. Guess Biden will now declare the need to control the internet will now be on the table in wake of all this.

  • RKae

    I remember reading that Jesus was a “naggar,” which could mean “carpenter” or “builder” or “learned man.”

    Can we now call him “NO_LIMIT_NAGGAR”?

  • Daniel Holmes

    And if Jesus hadn’t attacked Pontius Pilot from behind, he might not have been killed. Hey, I think we should ALL rewrite history to fit an agenda! It’ll be fun!

  • wanumba

    Like Jesus wore gold grills or something.

    Speaking of grills .. HOW much money was Trayvon displaying in his mouth there? $5,000? What’s gold an ounce these days?

    This piece of garbage can’t compare to Jesus’ toe cheese

    Sacrilege would be the word I believe

  • democraps suck

    I didn’t know Jesus had a gold tooth or had drugs in his back pack or was a ghetto thug…

  • sandy

    Be of good cheer this insanity is almost over. Pride goeth before the fall. These lunatics have run out of gas. When they have to compare Trayvon to Jesus they have lost their last ounce of credibility. And the dartboard is a halo I presume?
