I know that we must suffer this buffoon his on-the-job training, but is there not a shred of decency in him? Is there not one iota of responsibility, or conscience, or goodness to this Jeremiah Wright disciple? He is inciting instead of calming, which is what a leader does. They picked the wrong case to exploit to their own racist ends, and still he and his thugocracy persist in spite of the facts.
Stoking the flames.
Stoking the failure.
Stoking the lack of personal responsibility.
Stoking the dissatisfaction.
Stoking the entitlement class.
Stoking the violence.War. What else could be his endgame except to pit American against American?
The bloody joke is on all those voters who bought the “uniter” ad copy. All of those voters who cast a vote for Obama, if only to show that we were beyond racism and the 20th century’s defects. But what America got was the opposite. Instead, we, as a nation, have been hurled backwards — horribly backwards. I have never known the country to be so race fixed, so race obsessed, so race abused as we are under Obama.
What an ugly transformation he has orchestrated. It is shocking. His sanction of “Every F***ing Cop Is A Target,”of the mindless violence, the beatings of innocent people in the name of Trayvon, is sedition. But predicted: The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.
His flapping tongue is too eager to publicly lynch George Zimmerman, but strangely silent on Banghazi, the IRS war on patriots, Fast and Furious, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc. Obama’s flapping tongue is strangely silent on the hundreds of young black men murdered by black men. Obama’s flapping tongue is strangely silent on the failure of Trayvon Martin’s parents.
Obama: Trayvon Martin ‘could have been me’ NBC News President Barack Obama made a surprise appearance at the White House Friday to discuss African-Americans’ reaction to last weekend’s verdict in the George Zimmerman case, saying that “Trayvon Martin “could have been me 35 years ago.”
“You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago. And when you think about why, in the African- American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African- American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that — that doesn’t go away,” he said.
There are very few African-American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they are shopping at a department store. And that includes me. There are very few African American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me, at least before I was a senator. There are very few African-Americans who haven’t had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off. That happens often and I don’t want to exaggerate this, but those sets of experiences inform how the African-American community interprets what happened one night in Florida and it’s inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear.”
Asked if the president had thoroughly contemplated his remarks, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “I don’t think there’s any question, and you can judge by what he just said and how he said it, he knows what he thinks and he knows what he feels, and he had not just in the past week but for a good portion of his life given a lot of thought to these issues.”
In his first public remarks after the acquittal by a Florida court of Travyon Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman, President Obama says, “Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago.”
Obama also suggested that the outcome of the case could have been different if Martin were white. “If a white male teen would have been involved in this scenario,” he said, “both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”
The president also nodded to the Justice Department investigation which is probing whether or not to bring federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman. But Obama also urged state and local officials to review their own procedures to see how to improve their law enforcement practices.
He also called for a review of so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws, a central issue in the case.”If Trayvon Martin was of age and was armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?” Obama asked. “If the answer to that question is at least ambiguous, then it seems to me that we should examine those laws.”
Obama said he wanted to “reiterate what I said on Sunday, which is there are going to be a lot of arguments about the legal issues in the case. I’ll let all the legal analysts and talking heads address those issues.
The judge conducted the trial in a professional manner. The prosecution and the defense made their arguments. The jurors were properly instructed that in a case such as this, reasonable doubt was relevant and they rendered a verdict. And once the jury’s spoken, that’s how our system works.”
And though Obama sidestepped the idea of demanding a new, national conversation on race — and while he said that racism was far from eliminated — the president ended on an upbeat moment, expressing his view that race relations are “getting better.”
“I don’t want us to lose sight that things are getting better. Each successive generation seems to be making progress in changing attitudes when it comes to race. I doesn’t mean that we’re in a post racial society. It doesn’t mean that racism is eliminated,” he said. “But you know, when I talk to Malia and Sasha and I listen to their friends and I see them interact, they’re better than we are.”
Obama added: “We have to be vigilant and we have to work on these issues, and those of us in authority should be doing everything we can to encourage the better angels of our nature as opposed to using these episodes to heighten divisions. But we should also have confidence that kids these days I think have more sense than we did back then, and certainly more than our parents did or our grandparents did, and that along this long, difficult journey, we’re becoming a more perfect union — not a perfect union, but a more perfect union.”
