Obama: “If I Had A Son He'd Look Like Trayvon”
Buzzfeed ^ | 3/23/12 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 03/23/2012 7:35:53 AM PDT by RabidBartender

President Barack Obama weighed in on the "tragedy" of Trayvon Martin's death last week, saying it is "absolutely imperative" that all levels of government investigate "every aspect" of how the unarmed boy was shot.

"I can only imagine what these parents are going through," Obama said, adding "When I think about this boy I think about my own kids."

"I am glad that not only is the Justice Department is looking into this, but the Governor of the State of Florida has put together a task force [to investigate the case]," Obama said. Obama carefully avoided any discussion of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin, and has controversially avoided arrest under Florida's "Stand Your Ground" self-defense laws.

"My main message is to the parents: If I had a son he'd look like Trayvon. I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves."

This is the democrat way; publicly parade the corpse as long and as often as possible to support your regime.

"...he'd look like me."

I was driving when I heard this and I almost ran off the garbage-strewn Memphis road.

WHAT A RACE-BAITING POS.

Also, notice how he said he'd take ONE question...and it was about Trayvon Davis. The question was a PLANT---with his answer neatly rehearsed--which then also served to ward off any OTHER questions...

namely the otherwise likely number one question: HIS OBAMACARE ANNIVERSARY.

We need to get it together, guys, and focus on bringing down this ENEMY OF OUR NATION. If we don't...and he gets re-elected...

WE WON'T HAVE A COUNTRY IN A MATTER OF MONTHS. SERIOUSLY. Think about it.

>> If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.

Barky Jr. — a punk in a hoodie? You know, I can actually *believe* that.

From what I’ve heard... - The initial police report said Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and back of his head, and that the back of his shirt was wet as if he had been laying in grass. Zimmerman was quoted as saying something like "I kept calling for help. No one would help me." The report also identifies several eyewitnesses, so the truth should come out soon.

Wow. Yeah, except he’d have jug ears, a massive under bite and be about 15 shades whiter. But why let reality make it’s way into the delusions of the left now.

I didn’t see anything about him calling for ‘restraint’ from the black race-baiters who are calling for violence. Since when does a president have to get involved in local shootings? They happen every day.

We know why. This shooting can be used to further his race hate agenda, which he has pushed for 25 years.

If I had a son he'd look like Trayvon.

Is he saying his son would be a "clean" negro?

Racial violence is the Hail Mary part of his reelection campaign. Stop the violence by keeping "The Great Uniter" in office. He doesn't know if he'll need it yet, but he's keeping the fires stoked in case.

###

He is counting on the Race War continuing to be a one-sided engagement.

Blacks have been attacking whites for decades. The fire has YET to be returned.

Blacks make the big mistake of believing that ALL whites are cowardly, self-hating jackals like Ed Asner, Al Franken and Woody Allen.
