Judicial Watch announced today [yesterday] that it has obtained documents in response to local, state, and federal records requests revealing that a little-known unit of the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Community Relations Service (CRS), was deployed to Sanford, FL, following the Trayvon Martin shooting to help organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman.
JW filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the DOJ on April 24, 2012; 125 pages were received on May 30, 2012. JW administratively appealed the request on June 5, 2012, and received 222 pages more on March 6, 2013. According to the documents:
- March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
- March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.
- March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.”
- March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent an additional $751.60 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.”
- April 3 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $1,307.40 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford.”
- April 11 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $552.35 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17 year old African American male.”
From a Florida Sunshine Law request filed on April 23, 2012, JW received thousands of pages of emails on April 27, 2012, in which was found an email by Miami-Dade County Community Relations Board Program Officer Amy Carswell from April 16, 2012: “Congratulations to our partners, Thomas Battles, Regional Director, and Mildred De Robles, Miami-Dade Coordinator and their co-workers at the U.S. Department of Justice Community Relations Service for their outstanding and ongoing efforts to reduce tensions and build bridges of understanding and respect in Sanford, Florida” following a news article in the Orlando Sentinel about the secretive “peacekeepers.”
Rush Limbaugh spoke about this on his show yesterday,
This is a fundamental disintegration, and it’s just one of many that are happening to this country under this administration. Judicial Watch was given the documents by the DOJ that prove the DOJ was in Florida organizing anti-Zimmerman rallies. You know the only reason this trial’s taking place? The only reason this trial’s taking place is because the race hustler industry flew down there the minute this case happened when Zimmerman wasn’t charged.
Now, the original law enforcement bunch that first was exposed to the evidence in this case didn’t charge Zimmerman. There was nothing to see here. And then Al Sharpton and the race hustlers got in business and flew down there, and Eric Holder flew down there and thanked Reverend Al, as he called him, for his community outreach and service, and this regime saw an opportunity to turn something into a profoundly racial case for the express purpose of ripping the country apart. I don’t know how else to describe it.
…I think stoking the racial stuff is the way Obama was raised. He was raised to believe this country was founded unjustly and immorally and slavery this and slavery that. This country, he’s got a chip on his shoulder about it, and he’s here to square the deal. And Holder, too.
I think all of these guys have an anger about them about the country and its past. As far as they’re concerned, there’s nothing that’s ever gonna happen to erase slavery. “It may as well still be going on, by God!” So all of this is being done so the rest of us can get a taste of it; find out what it’s like. That’s what the OJ jury was doing. “Okay, fine! How does it feel? Not guilty. We know he did it. How many times did you railroad us?”
I think that’s what’s going on here.
Pure and simple.
I don’t think it’s hard to understand at all. In addition to that, there’s also the specter gun control. They wanted to use the shooting of Trayvon Martin, Obama’s “could have been my son,” pushing gun control, and they didn’t like Florida’s “stand your ground” law. They didn’t like that. They had a bunch of things they could push here. This martial law business? I don’t even want to go there. I don’t even think you have to to find an answer for why they’re trying to foment racial division.
It’s the same premise of affirmative action.
Affirmative action is so that you get a taste of what it was like.
… If you look up the Community Relations Service at the DOJ on their website, it says that they are a “peacemaking outreach organization.” It’s just the exact opposite of what they did in the Zimmerman case down in Sanford, Florida.
Obama, Holder, and the rest of the professional race baiters, including the Justice Brothers (Revs.Jackson and Sharpton), knew from the get-go that there was not a case against George Zimmerman. However, the cameras were rolling, and they never miss a chance to remind their voting bloc that they are “down with the struggle”. Never mind that they are all millionaires, and the only time you find any of them in impoverished areas of the country, is when there is good publicity to be had.
To quote Pastor Ken Hutcherson, a Former NFL Linebacker, (who just happens to be a good friend of Rush Limbaugh) from an article released yesterday on the subject of our nation’s self-proclaimed “Black Leadership”…
As a black man Al [Sharpton], who went through the Civil rights fight in the 60s just like you did, and saw the first freedom bus burn in my home town of Anniston, Alabama, on May 14, 1961; I hated Dr. King for his non-violent philosophy. That did not change until I became a Christian later in life. Then I understood God’s biblical truth of love your enemy and do good to those who hate and persecute you. I think I have the right to tell you this sir; I think the likes of you and Jesse Jackson have done more damage to the black race than any white man will ever accomplish. You see as long as you can produce an ethnicity with a victim mentality to keep them in poverty, as the two of you get richer – you know like poverty pimps – and convince them that it is the white man’s fault because he has his boot on their necks, and as long as you teach our beautiful black women that there is a government out there to be their baby’s daddy, the two of you win. You are the self-proclaimed, appointed leaders of the black people. How we as black people have swallowed the lie that we have to have certain black leaders to get on the government teat escapes me.
Pastor Hutch hit the nail on the proverbial head. This whole kangaroo court in Miami, upon the urging and support of the Professional Race Baiters, was organized for the purpose of rallying “the people”.
These guys could care less about Trayvon Martin.
Organizing “the people” was not done for “justice”, it was done for distraction. Distraction from a horrible economy, which has hit America’s Black Population the hardest. Distraction from a weak and sniveling Administration. who, instead of protecting us from our enemies, has declared Americans to be their enemy.
If, when Zimmerman is acquited, and it is definitely looking that way, “the people” in Miami riot, any deaths that result, can be laid at the feet of these Professional Race Baiters.
They are the ones who made it about the color of Trayvon’s skin…and not about the content of his character.
Until He Comes,
