Holder’s Department of Justice Helped Organize Sharpton’s Anti-Zimmerman Rally

There’s an old saying. Don’t teach your grandmother to suck eggs and don’t teach Al Sharpton to organize a race riot. But Eric Holder clearly feels that he has something to contribute to Sharpton’s hate rallies.

A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.

The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012

CRS spent $892.55 “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida” between March 30-April 1, and $751.60 “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.”

Sharpton, who promoted the Tawana Brawley hoax in the 1980s and in 1995 led a protest against the “white interloper” owner of a Harlem clothing store that ended in a deadly shooting rampage at the store, was a featured speaker at the March 31 rally, called “The March for Trayvon Martin,” where he advocated for Zimmerman’s prosecution.

CRS expenditures related to the anti-Zimmerman protests continued through mid-April. Between April 11 and April 12, CRS spent $552.35 “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.”

Holder has appeared at Sharpton’s National Action Network hate group where he said, “Thank you, Reverend Sharpton – and thank you all for such a warm welcome.   It’s a privilege to be included, once again, in this important Annual Convention.”

In a law-abiding country, Sharpton would be under investigation by the DOJ. In a lawless country, Holder helps organize Sharpton’s protests.

    Are we shocked that Racists held their Rally? These are the same people that could careless about all the Black on Black crime. They wasted the money, and people’s time on a trial of self-defense. This Country is ridiculous.

    I bet none of you ever heard about the six blacks that raped, tortured, and killed two white couple in Texas for days. Look the case up on Whateverhappentocomm’s youtube page. The News Media ignored this story for the most part. The News Media, and Politicians are all going to Burn Hell when they die. If I had Super Powers, I’d get rid of all the corrupt Politicians and News Media.

    Holdert and the Department of INJUSTICE are the ORWELLIAN NIGHTMARE we suspected was coming our way. His DOJ organizes demonstrations against American citizens on trial (no bias here folks), he refuses to prosecuted Black Panther thugs who broke the law while intimidating voters at polling stations, and the best came today, when preempting a not-guilty verdict for George Zimmerman, his Dept. of Injustice just released a report on an investigation of the Miami Police Department which claimed that they killed seven black criminals unnecessarily. This is a long term investigation and the release of this report just days before there is a verdict on the Trayvon Martin Shooting adds fuel to the fire and will probably provoke unrest. It looks to me like the regime really wants riots in our streets. To what end?

      You are so right. Unfortunately.

    Chill, people. DOJ CRS was helping the local PD and Sheriff’s office prepare for protests and demonstrations, NOT to organize the protesters.

      Holder shouldn’t even have a job….and, with all the problems in our nation (many created by the Chicago thugs in D.C.); the DOJ CRS doesn’t need to be meddling in anybody’s business. They can’t take care of their own! We should’ve sent Holder to Mexico with his Fast & Furious guns!

      doing both is more like it. Preparing them because they’re preparing the protesters to wind em up and let em loose

  • ElizabethMC

    holder knows nothing about Benghazi, IRS crimes, Rosen debacle, fast & furious, or anything he’s supposed to know, but he’s all in the know about this one, single killing of a black teen by a ‘white’ Hispanic and injects himself where he doesn’t belong.
    Why doesn’t holder inject himself into the daily black on black slaughter in Chicago, Detroit and other crime ridden cities?
    If half of those fatal shootings were committed by whites against blacks, holder would have the national guard on every street corner.

    CHA-CHING!!!

    “According to documents obtained by the non-partisan group Judicial
    Watch, DoJ authorized expenditures to send its so-called “Community
    Relations Service” personnel to Florida, and tasked them with organizing
    and promoting protests around the state for the prosecution of George
    Zimmerman.

    Ahead of Obama’s public comments about the case, the DoJ operatives were
    “deployed to Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies,”
    and “to provide support for protest deployment” and “technical
    assistance to … event organizers.” Ostensibly, they were sent to serve
    as “peace keepers,” but their mission and activities were nothing more
    than a thinly veiled component of Obama’s political campaign agenda.

    Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton concludes, “These documents detail
    the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure
    campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman. My guess is
    that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government
    employees to help organize racially-charged demonstrations.”
