One of the speakers at an Oregon rally says every cop and every racist is a target — because of racism post Zimmerman verdict.
“Every fu***** cop is a fu***** target.”
Those are the words from a speaker at what a YouTube video describes as a pro-Trayvon Martin rally in Portland, Oregon, over the weekend in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. And according to the video, it’s a sentiment that garnered wild praise from the crowd. But targeting the cops was only part of the man’s shocking rant.
“This happens all the time,” he said about the death of Trayvon Martin. “Every fu**ing racist is a fu**ing target,” he also said, after trying to cite a report claiming a black person is killed every 28 hours by police, security guards, or vigilantes.
“Captain Mark Kruger, the guy here who’s helping neo-Nazis who’s the captain of the Portland police bureau — you better believe he’s a fu**ing target,” he rattled off, earlier identifying himself as a minority whose first introduction to the police was when they came to his house looking for an illegal immigrant.
“We need to start making moves that’ll show them we have power that can force them into positions that we want them in and not the other way around,” he concluded. “I’m fu**ing tired of this. Let’s stop reacting let’s start actually acting and building power that will make them listen to us.”
The crowd erupted in hoots, hollers, and applause.
