President Obama has abandoned all sense of fairness, racial impartiality, and his obligation to be president “of all the people” by injecting himself into the Trayvon Martin killing.
As reported at the reference,in part, Obama declared that, if he had fathered a male offspring, that son would look like the slain 17-year-old. Having set the bait, the president then sought to blame all Americans for the tragic death while calling for “soul searching” to ponder the “stand your ground” law:
True to form, President Obama has used the tragic shooting of an unarmed black teenager to prejudge the case and blame all Americans.Barack Obama: Looking for the lowest common denominator
Referring to the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida, Obama said from the White House Rose Garden, “You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
By drawing attention to Martin’s race, Obama suggested that the shooting was racially motivated.
“All of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out how does something like this happen,” Obama went on, “and that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened as well as the specifics of the incident.”
“Obama is supposedly a constitutional lawyer but pronounces guilt before indictment and trial,” says John L. Martin, a former FBI agent who headed Justice Department espionage prosecutions for nearly 25 years. As a young agent, Martin was one of the lead investigators of the murders of three civil rights workers in Mississippi in 1964.
“There is no such thing as a presumption of innocence,” Martin says. “Instead, Obama accuses all non-black humanity of what may be the wrongful acts of one individual. There is no such thing as individual responsibility or individual accountability. We are all responsible for pulling the trigger.”
Obama’s comment on the shooting is in line with his claim that police in Cambridge, Mass. “acted stupidly” because they arrested a black Harvard professor who was being obstreperous. And it is consistent with Obama’s dark view of America, a view he shares with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., his minister and mentor for 20 years. Wright said America created the AIDS virus to kill off blacks. Never mind that a supposedly racist country elected Obama president.
In much the same way, Obama has pitted the poor against the rich, undercutting the most basic American ideals. He has even endorsed the Occupy Wall Street movement, which seeks to redistribute Americans’ wealth and encourages envy.
But Obama and many Democrats who follow his example by using any excuse to cry racism have turned back the clock to the 1960s, when the first thing we thought about when seeing a black man was the color of his skin.”
