Sharpton prepares for outrage over Trayvon Martin shooting verdict

The race-baiting Rev. Al Sharpton is already laying the groundwork for outrage if the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial doesn’t goes his way.

On his MSNBC show, Sharpton used an interview with Benjamin Crump, the attorney for the family of Trayvon Martin, to question whether the jury of five white women and one Hispanic woman seated Thursday can reach a fair verdict in the case of a white man accused of murder in the death of a black teenager.

alsharptonI would hope that we get fairness,” Sharpton said. “I think, though, we must deal with what the obvious is in terms of what the county demographics are, what is on the jury. But we don’t think people can be fair or unfair based on who they are. But we think the system ought to always be questioned.”

In Sharpton parlance, “questioned” means impugning one of the jurors in advance for the crime of having had a concealed weapons permit and mischaracterizing protests in Sanford that took place after the Martin shooting as “riots.”

“I was down there and helped organize some of the protests asking for a trial,” Sharpton said. “I never saw rioting and never heard of rioting when I was there.”

Crump agrees, then ludicrously suggests the possibility of a riot by Zimmerman’s supporters if he is convicted.

“The question I have,” he said, “… they come back with a just verdict holding George Zimmerman guilty of killing Trayvon Martin, will the other guys act right?”

If there are riots after the Zimmerman verdict, whatever it is, neither Sharpton nor Crump seriously think they will be the work of Zimmerman’s supporter.

And Sharpton knows how this stuff works. He’s spent decades fanning the flames of racial violence – literally in at least one case.

He’s just prepping for another round.

    as a former Military Intel analyst, I find Sharpton and Jacksons role in all this suspect.In another country their actions would bring suspicion that they might be "agent provocateurs" ie, people sent to manipulate the masses to accomplish a specific goal.

    Analyzing their presentation and actions brings severe reservations regarding their motives. Both preface their names with the title Reverend, to provide a benign sounding introduction while their actions seem anything but benign. They seem to promote racial discord rather than try to negotiate peace and harmony. If I were in another country I would report their activity as suspicious at best but suspect as subversive. In considering the question "why?" I wondered what they have to gain from racial unrest. I can find nothing except possible political motivations. Obviously the two have deep ties to the Democratic Party but what would they stand to gain from this?

    As an Analyst, I find three possible motivations. One is a diversion for the many problems currently facing the Whitehouse itself and this could be used to divert attention from those issues. The second, which makes more sense to me, is to polarize the voter base ahead of the 2014 elections because the Democrats as a whole are facing severe credibility problems at the present time and it looks unlikely that things will change before the next election. This will serve to insure the black vote. A third, unlikely, but much more insidious, is to actually incite racial violence to further goals of foreign interests meant to destabilize the United States at a time when we are already vulnerable because of the economic collapse. I know that is far fetched but in analysis, cannot be overlooked. In all, the motivations of these men should be questioned. They certainly have not been instrumental in the improvement of the Black Communities and in fact, have made no contributions to those areas hardest hit with gun violence such as LA, Chicago or Washington, DC.
    They seem more concerned to furthering a racial divide and fanning the flames of racial fires. Be Aware, they are not there to help!
