Bill O’Reilly has been on a justified tear against the “grievance industry” and its CEO, Al Sharpton.

Sharpton fired back on his low-rated MSNBC show Tuesday, and sounded like he was blaming Trayvon Martin’s parents and the Sanford police — anyone but himself and his own choice to get involved and make it a huge racial moment.

If the justice system wasn’t so biased towards minorities, Sharpton argued, then maybe he wouldn’t have to express so many grievances. “If the police in Sanford had acted justly, maybe Trayvon Martin’s parents wouldn’t have had a grievance and called me and others to come publicize their demands for the arrest and a proper investigation.”

Let’s review what the Sanford police actually did. After the shooting, they took Zimmerman into custody. They interviewed him. They examined the evidence, including Zimmerman’s wounds. They decided not to press charges because there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Zimmerman, as the killing appeared to have been done in self-defense.

Which, after an expensive trial more than a year later, is what the jury found. At the outset, Sharpton could have consoled the Martins while pointing out to them that there wasn’t a case to be had against Zimmerman. Instead, he and his Grievance Inc, which now includes the U.S. Department of Justice, got the police chief fired and wasted everyone’s time and Florida taxpayers’ money. They’re still hounding Zimmerman after his acquittal and demanding another trial.

Had the races been reversed, Sharpton would have either never gotten involved at all, or he and the Black Panthers and the rest would have been on the other side. Guaranteed.

When the media first began reporting Crump and Sharpton's race pimping on this issue, I knew immediately it was all a pack of lies.

Every single major "fact" reported in the mainstream press has been false, from Martin as a fresh-faced 12 year old boy who didn't use drugs, commit burglaries, practice and teach street-fighting, and want to be a thug to Zimmerman as a "White Hispanic" who "profiled" Martin by race, was "told to stay in his car," was "told not to follow" Martin but "stalked" him anyway, to "Stand Your Ground" laws having anything at all to do with this case.

Trayvon Martin was a violent felon who attacked the wrong pudgy-looking little guy. His death surely saved his future victims.

Trayvon already received "justice." Now we wait until Al Sharpton gets his.

Sharpton is racially biased and his judgement is seriously compromised as a result. Why anyone pays attention to Sharpton's racial ranting is beyond me.

Why did TM's mother copyright TM name? She did this right after the race hustlers arrived on the scene. This entire thing was about politics, money and racial grievance. The entire group from TM's side of the trial was in it for the money.

Note to African-Americans:

When you hear Al Sharpton open his mouth about race, most White Americans are going to immediately discredit whatever it is that that clown is babbling about.

If you feel that you really have a valid grievance and want it aired and heard, FIRST duct-tape Sharpton's mouth shut.

Note to (some) white Americans: those who line Sharpton's pockets and who keep putting microphones under him are not black.

MSNBC ring a bell?

Absolutely true. But he helps the Democrats and the Left keep blacks down in the Ghetto, dependent on government handouts, and so voting Democrat. So, to their mind, he has earned his pay.

That he can live with himself after the damage he has done to "his people" is astounding. He is soulless and evil.

Change of Behavior or Defiant Behavior – In the 2011-2012 school year Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times. In addition in June of 2011 he was using his social media platforms to reflect a severe anti-social personality.

Grades Drop / Truancy – in the 2011/2012 school year
from August to February Trayvon had been absent 53 days from school.
Generally that would be considered excessive by any standard.

Unexplained Money / Jewelry – The second suspension from school was for having unknown jewelry in his posession and what was called by school administrators as “a burgalry tool”.

Slang – One only needs to look at his twitter feed, and Facebook pages to rapidly identify almost another language with profanity and well-versed slang use.
(not posting any examples here.)

Graffitti on Books and Walls – Again part of the 2nd school suspension for writing vulgarities with permanent marker on school lockers.

According to the report, on Oct. 21 staffers monitoring a security camera at Dr. Michael M. Krop
Senior High School spotted Trayvon and two other students writing
“W.T.F.,” an acronym for “What the f—,” on a hallway locker, according to schools police. The security employee, who knew Trayvon, confronted the teen and looked through his bag for the graffiti marker.

Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in
addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described the screwdriver as a burglary tool.

Nicknames and Streetnames – “NO_LIMIT_NIGGA” was his twitter handle, and “Trey” was his common albeit strangely spelled nickname amid his social circle.

Evidence of Drug Use - School suspension for Marijuana and also widely reported by us in former posts on the subject.

These are the things you NEVER heard about......
Yeah...I think if Obama had a son.......he's be just like Trayvon...!

We now know that the "sainted mother" abandoned the kid when he was 12. Ihe "father" was a former gang member.

ANYTHING, and EVERYTHING, which spews forth from Sharpton's (who earned his bones, on the Tawana Brawley hoax, many moons ago, but no matter, the PC media 'koshered' him) lips are lies and self serving messages.
To be sure, without the collusion from the likes of Obama Inc., and the fawning, ever apologetic, minority obsessed media, the likes of this race hustler wouldn't amount to squat.
But in tandem with this piece of vermin operates the dangerous Black Panthers, a bonafide domestic terror group, despite the fact that they are visitors at Obama's, the Gangster-in-Chief's, digs. In fact, they have been terrorizing the U.S. for decades, and worked side by side with another Obama gangster, Billy boy Ayers - http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/02/adina-kutnickis-book-review-featured-at-american-thinker-bringing-down-america-an-fbi-informer-with-the-weathermen-written-by-larry-grathwohl-and-frank-reagan-updated-2013-edition/

Thus, birds of a radical, revolutionary feather...and they NEVER take responsibility, regardless of their crimes!

Sharpton in effect blames reality itself and has ardently set himself against it, as have his followers. No surprise the lot of them are out at sea. MSNBC is a disgrace to this country.

sharpton, poverty pimp and racist race hustler.

A disgrace to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and everything that that man stood for.

And still he gets media attention for his rants.

time for the conservative media to shun this man, and time for Bill and Sean and others that have him on, and say he is a nice man, to shun this pariah.

If the justice system wasn’t so biased towards minorities

It is biased. Blacks are convicted of violent crimes at a lower rate than are Whites.

That's because blacks are so much more prone to commit violent crimes.

And don't tell me there are more blacks in jail than whites. With their majority status there are more whites in jail. There would have to be.

However, it you eliminated all the black crime in this country we'd fall to the status of Switzerland (which has the same crime stats as Wyoming) in regards to crime stats.

So don't give us the garbage about a system unfair to blacks. Blacks are just violent - period! And they aren't any better in their native countries! That goes down to a micro-genetic level!

Lolly, I don't think you read what he wrote.

Because of their viloent crime rates, black offenders are under-represented in prison population. Many are either not prosecuted or are not convicted.

Because it's gets them on tv. Like it or not (and I don't) the media will put these race hustlers on tv and then the democrats will rent a mob to flood whatever place is needed.

The lesson they are seening is just what you said - white people - even "white" hispanics are NOT to defend themselves against black attacks. They are to meekly take it. That is all.....This is our new normal.

Of course the Sanford PD did act justly in the Martin case. Martin's parents never had a legitimate grievance. Sharpton continues to blame the Sanford PD for his own (and Jesse Jackson's) habit of racist evaluation of events.
He's not blaming the parents for poor parenting, I notice, although poor parenting probably played a role in Martin's eagerness to attack Zimmerman.
