On the heels of Sean Hannity’s interview with George Zimmerman, MSNBC defends itself against the accusation that they, in general, and Al Sharpton specifically, did not “rush to judgement” in the Trayvon Martin shooting.
Here is the official MSNBC position as told to Politico:
“MSNBC would like to set the record straight following some misinformation presented by Fox News during the interview with George Zimmerman last night,” MSNBC wrote in a statement sent to POLITICO. “Reverend Al Sharpton never ‘rushed to judgment,’ as stated by Mr. Hannity. Reverend Sharpton repeatedly called for calm and for a more thorough investigation in the wake of the tragic events. Ultimately, the authorities agreed an arrest was warranted.”
Now let’s just cut through the crap, and get to the truth. Because unlike MSNBC and the institutional legacy media complex the Truth Has No Agenda.
The best way to show how insufferably ridiculous MSNBC is, is to showcase their network host Al Sharpton in his own words. The first example being his appearance at the Sanford City Council meeting where he personally threatens the City Government, council members, Mayor and City Manager:
4:50 …you are risking going down as Birmingham and Selma in the twenty first century… You are making the world know you as a place of racial intollerance…. you have compromised the reputation of your city for one man….
Listen to his own words.
Second example from the Rally he led in Sanford. Fort Mellon Park March 22nd:
In this video you can see Al Sharpton sharing the stage with the New Black Panthers who had at that time placed a $10,000 bounty on the head of George Zimmerman wanted “Dead or Alive”. Sharpton continues…..
… Trayvon represents a reckless disregard for our [black] lives that we’ve seen for too long, and we’ve come here tonight to tell you enough is enough….
…. you thought it was hot,…. well, the heat has just arrived….
The third example is from the same rally March 22nd and showcases the entire Al Sharpton speech as it aired live on local TV networks:
…. we cannot allow a legal precedent to be established in this city where a man can murder anyone he wants and walk out free with a murder weapon….. I have mobilized the National Action Network……
Contrast that against the official MSNBC statement:
MSNBC would like to set the record straight following some misinformation presented by Fox News during the interview with George Zimmerman last night.” “Reverend Al Sharpton never ‘rushed to judgment,’ as stated by Mr. Hannity. Reverend Sharpton repeatedly called for calm and for a more thorough investigation in the wake of the tragic events.
Do those videos of Al Sharpton sound, or look, like a man calling for calm in your book.? And let us not forget what organization rallied with Al Sharpton at Mellon Park on March 22nd as you can clearly see in this next video. Pay attention to the men at the front of the stage handing out flyers:
Yep, that is the New Black Panther Party. There were Dozens of Black Panther militants lined up with Al Sharpton, Ben Jealous, Jesse Jackson, Benjamin Crump and the entire Trayvon Martin Family.
And what do you suppose was written on those flyers they are handing out in front of the stage at Al Sharpton’s Rally:
WASHINGTON TIMES – The U.S. Department of Justice had no comment on the $10,000 bounty the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) was offering for a “citizen’s arrest Dead or Alive” of George Zimmerman, the 28 year old man who told Sanford, Florida Police he shot and killed 17 year old Trayvon Martin on February 26 in an act of self-defense.
In modern America, a prudent citizen should know to remain in their vehicle, doors locked, and windows up, when there are young black males known to be in the vicinity.
What does this say about our society? Are we living in a drive through Safari Park?
If we get out of our vehicles we deserve what we get and shouldn’t blame the animals, much less shoot them in self-defense?
People are foaming at the mouth calling George Zimmerman a racist while at the same time saying he’s at fault for not following the rules on the Safari Park safety brochure.
