Will the Trayvon Martin Trial become another O.J. Simpson Trial?

The O.J. Simpson case was about payback. Could the same result happen in the Travon Martin/George Zimmerman case? Consider this story from the Washington Times:

“A member of a pro-Travyon Martin group was caught by a circuit judge trying to sneak his way onto the George Zimmerman jury in Florida, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

“The potential juror — identified on his Facebook page as Jerry Counelis and referred to as panelist E-7 — gave long, rambling answers about his impartiality when interviewed by attorneys, the Daily News reported.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson asked the unemployed artist if he posted something on March 21 to the Coffee Party Progressives Facebook page, that describes itself as a group “dedicated to seeking justice for Trayvon Martin.”

“In Sanford … & I CAN tell you THIS. ‘Justice’ IS Coming!” Counelis wrote, according to the report, adding that “with the noise WE made … it couldn’t be covered up.”

As the initial stages of the George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin case proceeds, the media are again resurrecting the issue of racism. And not too far behind are the modern day self-proclaimed civil rights leaders.

After listening to their divisive rhetoric (only to help along the administration’s tactic of divide and conquer), I couldn’t help but notice how far off the modern day civil rights leaders are from the creed of the civil rights movement in the 1960s led by Martin Luther King Jr. He was a molder of consensus to guarantee equal rights under the law for all men, “endowed by their Creator,” as the Declaration of Independence rightly states.

Let me take you back to the 1960s. Every participant in the civil rights marches was required to sign the following pledge before they could participate:

1. Meditate on teachings of Jesus daily.

2. Remember that the non-violent movement seeks justice and reconciliation, not just victory.

3. Walk & talk in the manner of love/charity, for God is love.

4. Pray daily to be used by God.

5. Sacrifice personal needs. Greed has to go out the window.

6. Observe with both friend & foe the ordinary rules of courtesy.

7. Seek to perform regular service for others and for the world.

8. Refrain from the violence of fist, tongue or heart.

9. Strive to be in good spiritual and bodily health.

10. Follow the directions of the movement and of the captain of the demonstration.

The self-made civil rights leaders of today, such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, have left out their Bibles and their morals as they debase themselves and reap nothing but mockery and reproach. Let me contrast the original pledge with the modern version of the pledge, as demonstrated by their actions:

1. Meditate on the media and anything but the teachings of Jesus.

2. Civil disobedience to just laws, through force, in hopes of an unjust victory.

3. Walk and talk in the manner of thuggery, propaganda, and racial division!

4. Play the race card at every opportunity. And if at first it doesn’t work – keep playing it.

5. Sacrifice the needs of others to insure a victory.

6. Send threats to those who disagree with you.

7. Seek to have it your way at all costs. Lie if necessary.

8. Use fear and force and the threat of retribution.

9. Strive to take from others because you want payback!

10. The goal isn’t any one case but the larger goal of political control.

Today’s modern civil rights leaders are demoralizers of the faith. They have turned civil rights into uncivil distribution of privileges, derived by the State. They have left off the Declaration of Independence, therefore throwing off freedom. Under their directives, racism is being taught to a new generation under the guise of decrying racism.

Martin Luther King Jr. condemned the “black power” movement because he knew “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” His point was that men were not to be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. The civil rights movement was about truth and justice, not lies and injustice.
