Terry Jones Latest Extremist Threatening to Join Fray Around Trayvon Martin Case

Terry Jones

Terry Jones, pas­tor of the Dove World Out­reach Cen­ter, a vir­u­lently anti-Muslim, anti-gay apos­tolic church based in Gainesville, Florida, has joined the grow­ing list of extrem­ists who are enflam­ing the sit­u­a­tion sur­round­ing the shoot­ing death of Trayvon Mar­tin by George Zim­mer­man in San­ford, Florida.

Jones announced in a press release that he would hold a rally in front of the Semi­nole County Cour­t­house on April 21 in sup­port of “the Con­sti­tu­tional Rights for George Zim­mer­man and Treyvon [sic] Mar­tin” because “Amer­ica is being cor­rupted, con­trolled, and manip­u­lated.” Martin’s fam­ily and their sup­port­ers are demand­ing that police arrest Zim­mer­man, who is allegedly in hid­ing due to threats made against him after the shooting.

Other extrem­ists have also announced that they will go to San­ford in the wake of the shoot­ing. In a post­ing to their Web site, the National Social­ist Move­ment (NSM), the largest neo-Nazi group in the coun­try, claims that they will carry out armed patrols in San­ford to pro­tect local white cit­i­zens from alleged “racial vio­lence” tak­ing place there. San­ford police, how­ever, have denied that the neo-Nazis are patrolling the streets there.

The NSM asserted in the same Web post­ing that they are tak­ing action in response to the activ­i­ties of the New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP), which offered a $10,000 reward for the “cap­ture” of Zim­mer­man. The NBPP has also pro­moted a num­ber of other activ­i­ties in San­ford since the shoot­ing, includ­ing a “National Day of Action” and com­mu­nity patrols “to protest against racial vio­lence and attacks.”

    Don’t really care any­more what any­one does. This is all pub­lic­ity, like every­thing else in the US. I’m Guyanese and what goes on in your coun­try is done for the sake of rat­ings. Can’t wait to fin­ish this job so I can return home. US is a silly place these days. Every­one is angry over the most super­flu­ous stuff. The courts need to deal with it and every­one involved that should not be involved really just needs to go home and do some­thing more con­struc­tive. Most of these peo­ple have free time, are celebs look­ing for some­thing to make them stick out and no one really cares about ‘jus­tice’. You peo­ple are out to lunch. My com­ment­ing on this is such a waste of time, but here I am sit­ting on the toi­let, not car­ing. Long live Zimm. the boy should not have tried to hurt him.
