Paltry Crowds Gather for Sharpton’s So-Called 100-City March for Trayvon: “It just reaffirms that it’s OK for a white man to kill all children – of all races”

After a week of free publicity courtesy of a sympathetic media, not to mention his low-rated MSNBC show, this is the best Al Sharpton can do?

In New York, about 200 people cheered as rapper Jay-Z and his wife, singer Beyonce, took the stage where Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother, was expected to speak later. Some hoisted signs reading “Boycott Florida” and many wore T-shirts with a photo image of Martin wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Two hundred people in New York? Like most Sharpton events, they were probably outnumbered by the media. Hilarity we much:

Meanwhile, thousands allegedly gathered in Chicago, where just this morning a 17-year-old boy was shot. Nobody cares about him since he’s not politically useful. That came on the heels of yet another night of carnage in Obama’s hometown, where victims included a six-year-old girl. Curiously, nobody demanded justice for them.

In San Francisco, there was an intimate gathering of possibly as many as 75 people demanding justice, or something.

In San Francisco, an early morning crowd of about 50 to 75 people spent two hours condemning the ruling in speeches and homemade signs in front of the city’s Federal Building at Seventh and Mission streets.

If anything, nonstop grievance theater has produced the desired effect:

Also attending the rally was Rashaun Martin, a mother in her 40s from Hayward who was joined by her sons, Stephen, 23, Isaiah, 13 and Vincent, 7. She said that cases like the one in Florida reinforced her fear for her sons’ safety – she even drives them to and from school every day because she doesn’t want them to walk home alone.

“For Zimmerman to get free, it’s just horrifying,” she said. “It just reaffirms that it’s OK for a white man to kill all children – of all races.”

Lovely. Job well done, Reverend. Elsewhere “crowds” were similar.

— In Wilmington, Del., about 100 people — almost all of them African American — gathered outside the J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building as passersby honked their horns in support. Local resident Mary Gilbert was upbeat, saying the verdict in the case will eventually have a positive effect on society. “God is never wrong, so the verdict isn’t wrong,” Gilbert said. “It’s making people of all races realize that something is wrong.”

— In Asheville, N.C., where about 50 people gathered at Vance Monument to tolerance, 16-year-old Liana Murray collected signatures on a petition urging the U.S. Justice Department to file charges against Zimmerman. “He racially profiled and stalked a child and shot him because he was wearing a hoodie,” Murray said. “Wearing a hoodie and being a black young man in the U.S. is something seen as suspicious.”

Sounds like she missed the trial. Finally, we can’t help but mock some of the low-information attendees. If there’s going to be any demands for justice, the perpetrator that defiled the English language here should be brought up on charges. In a supreme irony, considering Sharpton’s lack of clout, is anyone surprised he’s less popular than George Zimmerman?

    HILARIOUS that even with Bouncy and Jazzys’ help only a few hundred turn out in NYC. That is NYC people! DC had low turnout also.

    obama’s Hate Whitey party flopped.

    I was suspicious when the left wing propaganda machine, aka the mainstream media, made no mention of the size of the crowds. I knew that if they’d been sizable, the media would have been trumpeting it.

    Imagine drawing only a measly 200 people in New York City! I could get a bigger rally than that in support of teaching that the earth is flat! And they even had Jay-Z and Beyonce’!

    IF the media was doing its job, it would have reported that professional racist Al Sharpton’s rallies were a dismal flop. But, of course, that wouldn’t fit with their agenda.

    Another chance for Sharpton and Jackson to rise from the ashes of a tragedy further polarizing the races. Charges of racism are without foundation and the constant reference to Zimmerman being a white man further testifies to the culpability of the players. Usually you must be able to prove racism, but these hate mongers just know it to be true and don’t let the facts get in their way.

    Niggers don’t get upset if their kind kill a white person, Latino, or Asian as they so frequently do, but let some lowlife thug like Trayvon Martin get what he deserved and they have to show their ongoing and constant grievance–particularly those like the child Trayvon’s mother who sees dollar signs in the loss of her thugson.

    She drives her 23 year old son to and from school? Is he on the Rachel Jeantel high school program? How can she do that for three children and still have a job? Oops, I bet she is on welfare like most black people.

    Even the ACLU tell Holder to lay off Zimmerman. Hey Obama, why don’t you say, “35 years ago Zimmerman could have been me”, why just Trayvon??? Quite a biased statement isn’t that? Especially after a jury found ZImmerman, NOT GUILTY! ! !

    We have every criminal grounds we need to fire obama, holder and hillary yet our congressmen do nothing. Why are they so afraid of these crooks? Is it because they are afraid of being murdered or are they afraid of what Obama’s clan may have learned about them during their snooping ?

    We had eight people protest here and that got almost five minutes on the local 11:00 news.

    Even after having the head racist in chief pimp up these rallies less than 2000 people across the nation came out. I think we can safely say that the racist in the whitehouse will be dropping this and pivoting his laser like focus for the 100th time, to the economy.
