Al Sharpton: Civil disobedience will escalate if Zimmerman remains free

If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, the Rev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions.
Sharpton would not say the efforts would be taken against the city of Sanford specifically, but he has been critical of the police department’s handling of the case.
Everyone needs to chill, and start thinking!
The Trayvon Martin story is starting to stink worse than a cesspit. And, the more it stinks, the more it is becoming obvious that it is and was manufactured from the start to exacerbate racial tensions. The big question are why and why now.
Let’s go through it again quickly.
A run-of-the-mill shooting incident that took place more than a month ago suddenly and without warning bursts on to the national stage from coast-to-coast, Occupy goes on a semi-rampage and all the professional race agitators (including the President) immediately jump in to whip up the flames…
Then what happens? Well, let’s see. Word comes out that Zimmerman is Hispanic (and Hispanic looking) but he magically is transformed into “White-Hispanic” which is a term I doubt many people have ever heard; Martin gets outed as a thug and at least a wanna-be-gangbanger, his misogynistic and provocative tweets spread all over the media.– and instead of quieting the furor, causes the Left to double down and even turn up the heat.
Now Sharpton, who one would think would be eager to abandon his previous affection for rabble-rousing now that he is a highly paid media type with a respectable following, has threatened to escalate with “peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions”.
Why in the springtime of a year with a terrible economy and an unemployment situation that has drastically worsened for all Americans, but most seriously for minorities? Why with a long hot summer ahead and a national election on the horizon?
Why? And why now?
Look for clues people! This is not spontaneous! This is an orchestrated operation proceeding on a schedule, launched by persons unknown to deliberately stoke racial tensions and possibly even racial violence between black and white Americans.
Whatever the plan is, and whoever is running it, the worst thing we can do is let them bulldoze us on their schedule – and by us I mean everybody of all races who is not interested in becoming cannon fodder in an artificially stimulated race war!
Wake up, people. Talk to your friends of other races. Let’s all reaffirm our ties of dignity and our commitment to civil behavior. Everyone, let’s stop and remember that we do not have to follow those banners. We don’t have to take the bait they are leaving.
We are not stupid bulls you can just wave a flag in front of and expect to charge.
Something is going on. Let’s figure out what it is and find a way to respond intelligently and calmly.
