He’s certainly striking a tone that’s different from his usual pot stirring:

Fair enough. But will his advice fall on deaf ears?

    If zimmerman is acquitted, it’s too late. The die is cast. But unlike the riots following the Rodney King verdict, (which I believe was deeply flawed) These riots will engulf the nation. They will burn, loot and destroy their own neighborhoods, attacking white people, (instead of hispanics, because that doesn’t fit the narrative). I suggest all white business owners in predominately black areas take up arms and camp out in your stores to protect them. Otherwise you’ll be contacting your insurance company to find out if your policy covers damage as the result of race riots that were egged on by the media and the doj. Do you remember the LA riots? I do, and this is going to be worse, much worse if zimmerman doesn’t hang.

    • Joe W.

      Right-O…..Barack Obama stoked the flames himself, and carries a great deal of culpability for the carnage that is upon us.

      • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

        He’s just staying true to form with the only thing he knows how to do: divide and conquer the masses/the USA by keeping them hating each other over race, money, politics, you know, all the stuff that “matters” (eyeroll)

    • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

      No matter what the verdict, arm yourselves while you still can, because if Z. is convicted, that will be the END of neighborhood watch programs. No one in their right minds will patrol their own neighborhoods anymore, much less after dark or confront someone unknown in the area behaving suspiciously.

      So if Trayvon was a grade school choir boy (as portrayed in old baby pictures by the enemedia), why was he out walking the streets, alone, after dark? Do normal grade school kids not up to any trouble do that?

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      The white business owners should just shut down, pack up and leave. Just like Detoilet.

  • ObamaFail

    He’s got a lot of room saying this. It’s because of him and that other race-baiting idiot Al Sharpton that the Zimmerman/Martin stuff because the media circus it is. And they’re the reason black people are readying for the riots.

    • Joe W.

      Whites are readying for the riots this time as well, Gary. The New Black Panthers have promised to visit predominately white neighborhoods and attacking us crackers. I’m quite ready for them. You??

      • rinodino

        Yeah jIMBO let’s get our pickups and get ready for some lynchings, like we did back in the old days… YIEEEHAWWW!!! TAKE AMERICA BACK!!!

        • The Penguin

          Ah… so you believe that white people shouldn’t defend themselves if in fact there are riots and they are attacked ?

          • CatHerder

            He doesn’t believe in anything much, other than the self-gratification of slandering others. Don’t feed the troll.

          • The Penguin

            I’m aware. I’ve gone back and forth with him/her/it a couple times. Just wanted to see what possible defense for his/her/its comment could be. Every now and then I just can’t help but respond to the idiocy.

            Thanks for pulling me in from the abyss.

          • rinodino

            Yes because it was clearly white people they attacked when the last riots hit? If my memory is correct, it was the hood that was on fire.

          • The Penguin

            So that truck driver who was pulled out of his vehicle and smashed across the face with a brick… never mind. It’s you. And the claim from the new black panthers is what was being addressed. Not what happened after the Rodney King verdict. Which did involve hate crimes against white people. Wait…isn’t it nap time Mr. Tyson?

          • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

            Reginald Denny…that was the white truck driver victim’s name from the King riots.
            So where’s all the Democrat concern for the Black kids killed every freaking day by other Black kids in Chicago?

          • MissDiane47

            Sorry, it doesn’t fit the Democrat Black Caucus narrative.

        • NRPax

          Sorry if you prefer for white people to just stand around and get attacked but that approach just doesn’t work for me.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          You’re such a dumbass.

  • Joe W.

    Like the arsonist who lights the fire and then goes around telling people to support their local fire dept. Race hustling bass turd.

  • Peetweefish

    The thing that bothers me most about the trial is that they insist on using the words “kid” and “teenager” to describe Trayvon. While technically true, it biases towards believing he was helpless. I’m barely 5’9″ and have met 15 year olds who are bigger than me. At night a 17 year old who from pictures (The pictures released later of course. Initially the family released photos of him at 13 or 14 years old) looks rather physically developed as a good sized man jumps a guy like Zimmerman and people are surprised he didn’t ask Trayvon’s age before pulling the trigger? If Trayvon had instead killed Zimmerman he would have been tried as an adult.

    • rinodino

      If Trayvon had killed Zimmerman regardless of right to carry a weapon BS…he would be under the jail right now, swiftly and quickly, that’s why the outrage in the black community

      • Cindy Nowicki

        The difference is there wouldn’t be 24/7 media coverage!

      • Peetweefish

        The black community and the media wanted this to be about race. A non-black man kills a black 17 year old was all they needed to hear. What if Zimmerman had been a black man who killed a black 17 year old? There would not have been national outrage or national media attention. That kind crap happens in Chicago and every other major city every day. As does white on white, black on white, Hispanic on Hispanic, black on Hispanic, Hispanic on black (minus Zimmerman because his skin is apparently not dark enough). The only reason there is outrage on a national level is because a white looking idiot shot a 17 year old idiot who was black. Main stream media has been calling Zimmerman white-Hispanic to drive home that point for crying out loud.

      • michael s

        This person would agree with you.

      • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

        If Trayvon had killed Zimmerman we would have never heard of either one of them.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Under the jail?

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Don’t forget, Tray-tray’s momma kicked him out of the house, for being in fights at school. I would suppose, under normal circumstances, that may be considered “child endangerment”, I mean, if Tray-tray was only 13 or 14, like the media and race baiters would have you believe, his mother should be held to account for refusing to care for her minor “child”.

  • alanstorm

    JJ is generally one of the biggest racists around, but I will give him credit when it’s due. Well said.

    I like the general snarkiness and willingness to point out liberal idiocy here, but in my not-at-all-humble opinion, some of y’all could stand to be a little more gracious when someone from the left gets an occasional clue. After all, we don’t want to be as intolerant as the “Tolerant Left” now, do we?

    • NRPax

      While I will acknowledge that it was good of him to say this, Mr. Jackson has a few more decades to go before I’d be ready to extend him an olive branch.

    • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

      I think we’re just waiting to see what RevJJ says/does AFTER the verdict, even if Z. is acquitted. Talk is cheap.

  • Cindy Nowicki

    Jackson, Sharpton, MSNBC, CNN, NAACP stoked the flames of hatred over 1 yr ago.

    Now he’s changing his tune knowing “the chickens ‘might’ be coming home to roost!”

  • ejochs

    Funny how this pile instigates and then puffs out this stuff about not rioting.

  • LinTaylor

    First he advocates a compassionate approach to Paula Deen, now he’s trying to tone down the racial hatred going on around the Zimmerman case.

    …Who are you, and what have you done with Jesse Jackson?

    • GaryTheBrave

      Maybe his doctor told him he has just months to live. He’s trying to get into Heaven.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        “For by grace are ye saved, and that not of yourselves, it is a gift from God, not of works, lest any man should boast.” He can ‘work’ all he wants….

  • MarcusFenix

    I agree with others….this is rather backwards for Jackson. Usually, he’s not quite as…polite?

    It does make me curious as to why.

    At least on this one, he’s said something (today) that makes decent sense.

  • R.C.

    Forget that he was walking with Al “not so” Sharpton holding the “justice for treyvon’ banner…..
    That aside, he must have experienced a moment of clarity. Understanding that violent reactions to an acquittal will not end well for the black community is a step forward for JJ.

  • Marvin Nelson

    What is he up to? This is a major deviation from his usual race mongering.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      He’s still race baiting, as evidenced by the #JusticeForTray-tray hashtag.

  • Mead

    Every now and then he gets it right. Not enough to applaud for it, but.. yeah

  • Michael Morris

    Yeah, a bit late for him to start preaching restraint now. He’s already whipped the mob up into a frenzy.

  • neoface

    He shouldn’t have to stage a protest to began with. What’s matter Tamara Holder was out of the town that day????

  • neoface

    These tweets are dead on accurate- I he wasn’t just saving his public face. His race baiting of this case will be one of the main causes of Race Riots(if they happen)

  • michael s

    I notice Rev. Pat Robertson Rev John Hagee Rev Franklin Graham Rabbi Botaech arent calling for restraint.

    • NRPax

      You remember when all those white people rioted when OJ was found not guilty? Yeah. Me neither. So maybe the reason they aren’t calling for restraint is that it’s not necessary.

      • michael s

        No but i know of the decades they did. Buy and read a book called witout sanctuary.60.00 but worth it

        • CatHerder

          Wow, for all my love of history I don’t live there. Why do you?

        • NRPax

          but i know of the decades they did

          Past tense. As in “It doesn’t happen any more” which is why you’re not hearing calls for restraint from the people you mentioned.

          • michael s

            wasnt 1995 past tense? yet you bring up oj.

          • NRPax

            Why yes, I did. Do you know why? You asked the question about why white ministers weren’t calling for calm. I gave you a specific example of a black man being accused of murdering two white people. He was found not guilty and there wasn’t any rioting.

            But since you want to move the goalposts yet again, let’s take a look at something more recent, shall we? Channon Christian and Christopher Newson. Raped, tortured and murdered by five black people in 2007. Yet I never saw any rioting or any threats of rioting. I never heard of “calls for restraint” by those ministers you mentioned. I’ll let you figure out the reasons why on your own.

        • The Penguin

          And back in the day the KKK were committing atrocities against blacks. These days not so much but still have a presence. Who just so happen to be Democrats. Are you or any of your religious or political leaders on the left asking then to stand down if GZ is found guilty?

  • Rich

    There are trouble makers who will any excuse to riot and cause damage.

  • NRPax

    First Al Sharpton calling for restraint, now Jesse? I’m wondering if they have some lawyers that sat them down and warned them that they were on their own if they instigated anything.

    • Ntr

      They’re afraid of the New Black Panthers’ rhetoric of going into the “white neighborhoods” if George Zimmerman is found innocent or gets a shortened sentence that they deem unfair. They are trying to wash their hands of this given their history of fomenting racial tension for self-gain.

  • A Willful Boy

    He might want to tell his followers to avoid violence all of the time, not just immediately following a verdict.

  • Jeremy
  • chetnapier

    If there are riots could civil suits be filed against the race baiters?.Could they be slapped with a wrongful death suit?

  • JoeCollins

    First time in a very long time that the Reverend has made sense.

    • NY2DC

      After months of inciting this crap, what good are statements like this from Jackson or Al Sharpton now? They’ve already riled up the masses.

      • jebjr

        I trust them both about as far as I could throw them. They’ll play nice in the media, but you can bet that both of them are busy behind the scenes planning and scheming evil plots. After all, why not let a little looting, violence, bodily harm and general mayhem get in the way of justice? (sarc) :)

  • ICOYAR

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

  • DallenH

    The progressives need an excuse to issue martial law. Nationwide riots could be that excuse.
