Barack Obama, in a further attempt to politicize the Zimmerman trial, made an appalling, pitiful and shameful statement Sunday. After failing miserably to use the Sandy Hook shootings to trash the Second Amendment, Obama is now attempting to use the complete acquittal of George Zimmerman to “honor Trayvon Martin” by using the shooting, done in self-defense, to “stem the tide of gun violence.” Here is Obama’s full statement (my bold):
The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.
What does defending oneself from getting your head bashed into concrete have to do with “gun violence” (a new term coined by commie Nancy Pelosi to further the Left’s anti-constitutional agenda)? Answer: Nothing. Unfortunately, dozens of black men are tragically shot in lefty, progressive gun-control capital, Obama’s ‘hometown’, Chicago every weekend by other black men and no one on the Left gives a crap. The names of the murdered victims are not famous like Trayvon Martin’s. No one holds marches. No one riots. No one talks about “gun violence” causing their deaths or passing more gun control laws in Chicago to “stem the tide.” Mysteriously, none of them look like Obama’s son,
But yet somehow, George Zimmerman, who is half Hispanic, and half white, is somehow considered 100% white by the freaks on the Left, even to the point of blaming Martin’s death and acquittal on “white supremacy.”
In the highly plausible alternative scenario where George Zimmerman didn’t have a gun to protect himself (Obama’s wish) to stop Trayvon Martin’s vicious attack, Zimmerman would likely be dead right now. Under those circumstances, would this story even have made news? Would we even know the names of George Zimmerman or Trayvon Martin? Would Obama have still said that Trayvon looked like one of his non-existent sons? Would professional race-hustlers Jesse Jackson or Al “not so” Sharpton have made statements about Zimmerman’s death. Or, if Zimmerman was black, instead of “white” (as the corrupt lefty media describes him), would this story be national news?
Idiots are making statements like it’s open season on black teenagers in this country. You know what? If you don’t want to get shot, then keep your hands to yourself and don’t attack someone and you don’t have to worry about it. Don’t bash someone’s head against the concrete and break their nose and it won’t be a problem. Don’t be the one who initiates violence on another person, and you won’t have to worry, the overwhelmingly majority of the time, of having violence returned to you.
But at least Obama had the sense to say in his statement that the “jury has spoken,” right? Doesn’t that mean we should all move on, that legally it’s over? Well, in Orewellian Obamaspeak, not really, as it was announced yesterday that the Obama-Holder corrupt Department of Injustice will be doing their own “investigation” of Zimmerman. Not at all surprising considering it was revealed last week by Judicial Watch, who obtained Freedom of Information Act documents, that the same Department of Injustice had been promoting anti-Zimmerman protests long before he was even charged! And they did so with tax dollars!
The Zimmerman acquittal was a victory for self-defense and the rule of law, and was a major loss to the nation’s top race-hustlers, Barack Obama, Jesse Jackson and Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton.
