I would like to thank the media for playing up the racial angle of the Trayvon Martin case. Great job, media. I bet you got good television ratings.
I would like to thank the Al Sharptons of the world for playing up the racial angle of the Trayvon Martin case. You all know who you are. Great job, Sharptons. I bet you feel like big men now.
Thanks for getting people riled up along racial lines. It brings the extremists out of the woodwork.
This is what happens when the seeds of racial division are sown....
Neo-Nazis are currently conducting heavily armed patrols in and around Sanford, Florida and are "prepared" for violence in the case of a race riot. The patrols are to protect "white citizens in the area who are concerned for their safety" in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting last month, says Commander Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement. "We are not advocating any type of violence or attacks on anybody, but we are prepared for it," he says. "We are not the type of white people who are going to be walked all over."
Because nothing diffuses racial tension like gun-toting racial separatists patrolling an already on-edge community.
Schoep, whose neo-Nazi group is based in Detroit, tells Riptide the patrols are a response to white residents' fears of a race riot.
A group called the New Black Panther Party recently offered $10,000 for a citizens' arrest of George Zimmerman, Martin's shooter. Schoep said the bounty is a sign that "the possibility of further racial violence... is brimming over like a powder keg ready to explode into the streets."
The patrols are comprised of between 10 and 20 locals and "volunteers" from across the state, including some from Miami, he added. He couldn't go into specifics on what kind of firepower, exactly, the patrols had with them.
"In Arizona the guys can walk around with assault weapons and that's totally legal," Schoep said, referring to the group's patrols of the US-Mexico border. "What I can tell you is that any patrols that we are doing now in Florida are totally within the law."
Asked if the patrols wouldn't just make things worse -- spark a race riot, for instance -- Schoep insisted they were simply a "show of solidarity with the white community down there" and "wouldn't intimidate anybody."
"Whenever there is one of these racially charged events, Al Sharpton goes wherever blacks need him," Schoep said. "We do similar things. We are a white civil rights organization."
And here we go. Hope all you race-baiters are happy now. Consider the races baited. Hope you're proud of yourselves.
Then there's this story:
A 78-year-old Ohio man says he was a victim of a hate crime when he was severely beaten by group of youths -- who allegedly said "this is for Trayvon," referring to the unarmed black Florida teen killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer.
The man, Dallas Watts of East Toledo, told police he was walking home Saturday afternoon when he was confronted by six youths, both white and black, ages 11 to 17, FoxToledo.com reports. One of the youths allegedly said "take him down."
Watts said he told the youths, "Why me? Remember Trayvon." He told FoxToledo.com that he meant it in a "peaceful way," since he had nothing to do with the Florida killing. But police suggest the youths may have misinterpreted Watts' words as threatening.
"[Get] that white [man]. This is for Trayvon ... Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man]," the boys are quoted as saying in a police report cited by the Toledo Blade.
Three of the six youths have been charged in the case, but police interviews didn't yield enough evidence to support hate crime charges.
Also possibly related ???...this story:
Police in Tulsa, Okla., asked the public for help in searching for a man who shot three people to death and wounded two others in a predominantly African American neighborhood.
Police are searching for a man in an older-model white pickup truck, Jordan said. He said that although the shootings could be considered hate crimes because all the victims were African American, no racial slurs were reportedly used and police aren’t following that theory until more information comes to light.
City Councilor Jack Henderson, who represents the district in which the shootings occurred, said residents with information about the shootings needed to contact the task force in charge of investigating the incidents. The task force includes the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service.
“I know that there are some people in District 1 that are thinking that they don’t need to be talking to the Police Department,” Henderson said. “We need you to put aside your feelings about your inability to talk to the Police Department."
Keep stirring the pot, race baiters. Keep fanning those flames. You're doing a great job...and Americans will keep dying. It's starting to feel like 1962 all over again.
Update 4/9/12: It appears now the Tulsa shootings might not be related to the Trayvon Martin case, though they may be race-based revenge killings of a different nature.
