Do you remember, during the OJ trial, President Bill Clinton saying “If I had a son he would look like Ron Goldman”?
Do you remember, following the OJ verdict, President Bill Clinton saying “Ron Goldman- that could have been me twenty five years ago”?
Do you remember, in the aftermath of the OJ trial, President Bill Clinton saying “I wonder if the outcome would have been different had Nicole Simpson been black?”
Neither do I.
Obama held a pity party yesterday. In so doing, he took division in this country and ripped it apart even further. He took an open wound and poured salt into it. He pulled off the scab trying to heal.
“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.”
It could have Obama? Did Obama get suspended three times from high school?
Did Obama have stolen jewelry and burglary tools in his backpack?
Would Obama have tweeted pictures of his grille?
Would Obama have tweeted a picture of a gun?
Would Obama have taken a swing at a bus driver?
I’d love to see Obama have to answer those questions.
But let’s examine what Obama has done once again- and that is to inject race into an issue that wasn’t racially motivated.
The FBI found no evidence that Zimmerman was a racist.
The lead investigator said that the shooting was not based on skin color.
Witnesses told the FBI that Zimmerman is no racist.
Zimmerman mentored black children, stood up for homeless blacks and even voted for Obama.
But none of that matters- not to Obama, not to Sharpton, not to MSNBC.
Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary Obama feels compelled to make race an issue in this tragedy.
“If a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”
I doubt it would have made a bit of difference had a white sucker punched Zimmerman and then proceeded to ground and pound him.
And straw men abound!
“If Trayvon Martin was of age and he was armed, could he have ‘stood his ground’ on that sidewalk?”
The Zimmerman lawyers did not make use of the Stand Your Ground defense.
The Obama regime took a turn down a very dark road when it set up a website looking for “feedback” about possible civil rights charges against Zimmerman:
In an unusual move, the Justice Department announced Wednesday that it is collecting feedback from Americans for its investigation into whether to file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.
Justice officials said the move comes “because of interest in this matter.” People can e-mail Sanford.Florida@usdoj.gov if they have thoughts on how the department should proceed.
It’s much worse than that. They’re not looking for simple “feedback.” They’re trolling for the proof they lack.
“They were calling on us to actively refer anyone who had any information,” that might build a case against Zimmerman for either a civil rights violation or a hate crime, Arnwine said. “They said they would very aggressively investigate this case.”
“Aggressively investigate this case.”
It has an distinctly ominous tone to it- one that suggests the Obama regime intends to convict George Zimmerman of something, even if they have to fabricate the evidence- even it means Zimmerman being framed.
Inasmuch as this case would not even have been brought if not for the bullying from the race hustlers Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson it is difficult to imagine Sharpton and Jackson accepting a decision not to prosecute Zimmerman for something.
Please read Sharpton’s words back then:
“It’s not about saying Zimmerman is innocent or guilty, this is about whether there was probable cause to arrest him.”
Well, they did arrest him. Then they tried him. And he was found not guilty. Sharpton then called the verdict “a slap in the face” but “only the first round in the pursuit of justice.”
Justice? Whose justice?
Sharpton promised civil disobedience and “economic sanctions” if Zimmerman wasn’t arrested. Now Sharpton establishes his own system of “justice” – justice via petition. If he gets enough signatures Sharpton can dictate Zimmerman’s fate.
News of their appearances surfaced just before a significant NAACP update: 1 million signatures have been gathered as of Tuesday for an online petition urging the U.S. Department of Justice to file federal charges, including civil-rights charges, against Zimmerman.
Arrest via protest, trial via petition. An interesting precedent.
And Sharpton had this to say as well:
“I’ve said from the beginning we must pursue [this] until the end,”
What is the end? The end of George Zimmerman?
So there it is: George Zimmerman must be convicted of something as a means of reparations because “the African- American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that — that doesn’t go away” and that should Zimmerman continue to be found innocent Sharpton would likely demand that Obama just execute George Zimmerman.
By executive order.
BTW, where was Obama during the Benghazi attack?
