Uh, yeah. See the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The CRS was doing its job.

Look at the Feds, organizing marches!

PJ Media...I wonder if one should click.

Why yes, yes one should.  If only to read the comment section.

It's good to know that the DOJ has a riot prevention arm that doesn't involve a swat team.

The article is filled with conjecture and opinion from the Judicial Watch. Sounds legit

As well:

Bryan PrestonBryan Preston has been a leading conservative blogger and opinionator since founding his first blog in 2001. Bryan is a military veteran, worked for NASA, was a founding blogger and producer at Hot Air, was producer of the Laura Ingraham Show and, most recently before joining PJM, was Communications Director of the Republican Party of Texas.

so what is the original purpose of this little know unit?  Is it's job to help minority groups or something?  Does it help coordinate any protest?

Great. Now the 45 alts in the daily GZ threads will come traipsing in.

Is this the next Benghazi? This is the next Benghazi, isn't it? Gods, these people are grasping at straws. There are plenty of things to hate Obama for. Trying to keep the peace and prevent race riots isn't one of them.

For more than 45 years, CRS has been asked to provide its experienced mediators to help local communities resolve conflicts and disturbances relating to race, color, or national origin. Each year CRS' highly skilled conciliators bring hundreds of community-wide conflicts to peaceful closure across America and its territories.

CRS lends its services when requested or accepted by the parties. The Service uses impartial mediation practices and conflict resolution procedures to help local leaders resolve problems and restore stability. CRS has no law enforcement authority and does not impose solutions, investigate, prosecute, or assign blame and fault. All CRS mediators are required by law to conduct their activities in confidence, without publicity, and are prohibited from disclosing confidential information. Link

Wow...looks like they were doing their job they were founded to do.
Hmm, feign some more outrage. I wanted to post this on the blogs comments but his thing seems to make you jump through hoops to post anything at all.

It wasn't helping coordinate any protests.  They are there to help keep things calm and act as go between for protesters and local government.  You can read all about this super secret organization and what they do on their website:

I'm pretty sure they were sent to Trayvon Martin's area to keep black people from rioting.
 
2013-07-10 04:26:23 PM
Wow, for $5320.88 the Federal Government organized a national protest?

And these guys are always telling us how incompetent and inefficient they are.

I don't trust PJMedia or whatever this link is to, but taken from the outside sources:

"The peacekeepers have a specific mandate outlined in the 1964 Civil Rights Act to go into conflict zones within American communities that perceive discrimination or feel wronged because of their particular race, color or national origin.
"We are unique in that we don't investigate or prosecute but foster communication between communities," said acting Community Relations Service director Becky Monroe. "The real goal is to build local capacity to deal with these issues."
They negotiate, ameliorate and communicate "under strict confidentiality," Monroe said.
City officials said when battle lines were drawn and dialogue broke down, they called in the conciliators.
"They work behind the scenes and in the trenches to make contact with the various organizations that are represented," Sanford's Community Development coordinator Andrew Thomas said. "They make the connections others in the community can't."


Which is a bit different than the characterization that "the Department of Justice played a major behind-the-scenes role in organizing protests against George Zimmerman"

More like "The Community Relations Service division of the DOJ played a major role behind the scenes in making sure existing protests didn't get out of hand and everyone stayed calm."

So basically they would call police making sure things didn't go bad at a protest "Organizing the protest".

Why does anyone have a hard on for some loser who shot and killed an unarmed kid who's only suspicious action was walking down a public street? Seriously, why are the wing nuts so worked up about this? Are they just desperate to prove their racist narrative?
 
2013-07-10 04:33:21 PM
Wait..the government organization responsible for preventing race riots got involved in the Trayvon Martin case and prevented race riots?

I am..outraged?
 
2013-07-10 04:33:28 PM
It looks like the CRS was doing a little bit to keep it a protest and not a riot.

you take the gun out of the equation & the whole story would disappear.
Kid kills hobo with bare hands - the headlines would read.

It's almost as if someone WANTED there to be a race riot.

I don't get why people think Zimmerman gets to defend himself, by shooting someone but Martin isn't allowed to defend himself by punching someone.

And who the fark attacks someone while still trying to talk to on his cell phone? That makes no sense.

Is anyone else thinking they could make this group into a TV drama show similar to criminal minds?

Remember the Jena 6?

The CRS was pretty active in Jena during that time.

One of the things they did is mediate between the city and a white nationalist group that was planning on having an armed march on MLK day.  They managed to negotiate an agreement to have the march without weapons.

Can you imagine the PJ Media headline if Obama and Holder had been around then???

This is what happens when we let black people have jobs in government. With Obama in power the whole US government is made to act in favor of blacks and against whites.

(we know this must be true because when whites were in power they naturally governed in favor of whites)

Look at the Feds, organizing marches!


A classic painting.  I wonder if it would be censored today because of the graphitti on the wall behind the little girl.

Normal Rockwell did some very disturbing sketches and watercolors of the civil rights struggle; I would like to see a timeline someday of what he was painting privately vs. what he was publishing.  Did he decide at one point that he was now willing to take the risk of going "all political"?

It's not self-defense when you hit first.

Does anything about this case make any sense?

That painting currently hangs in the waiting area outside the Oval Office.

images.politico.com

Some conservatives were upset when Obama had it placed there because they felt it was divisive, and unfairly stigmatized whites by reminding people of recent history.
