Obama: "If I Had A Son, He'd Look Like Trayvon"
realclearpolitics ^ | 3/23/12

Posted on 03/23/2012 2:07:30 PM PDT by pabianice

During the announcement of his nominee for president of the World Bank, President Obama was asked about the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida...

"Obviously, this is a tragedy," he said. "I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids, and I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and that everybody pulls together -- federal, state and local -- to figure out exactly how this tragedy happened. I'm glad that not only is the Justice Department looking into it. I understand now that the governor of the state of Florida has formed a task force to investigate what's taking place. I think all of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how does something like this happen. And that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened as well as the specifics of the incident. But my main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon, and I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves and that we're going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened."

Obama proves that even electing a black as president , will not move the nation one milliliter closer to unification.

If Obama had a son, he wouldn’t have to tuck David Cameron into bed.

In this short statement there are no less than 10 references to self by this egotistical narcissist. There is no event that Obama won't use to launch into a self-referential monologue.

When did he call Trayvons mom?

In a similar vein, why hasn't Zero called the mother of the white kid in Kansas City who was doused with gasoline by two black kids and set afire? Better yet, why is there no media frenzy about that story? (j/k, we all know the answer to that.)

OK- Even for Obama this is an outrage. Do people even notice this kind of self-serving tripe? The Cult of the One comes together in solidarity. Expect more as November approaches.

It is really tragic when an innocent kid dies. I am not sure why this one is so much more tragic for a guy who worked as a community organizer in Chicago where these types of events are in the news each day. I really hope they let the local and state police do their honest work this time. My guess is these two maps might help us understand his choice to jump in though. Look at them side by side you can.

When he addresses all the young males who look like Trayvon who are being killed by young males who look like Trayvon, I might listen. I want to puke every time he weighs in on these stories in a personal way.

All one has to do is watch ‘The First 48’ on A&E. It is the same story over and over-—black on black murder-—from Birmingham to Memphis to Minneapolis to Miami. Rev. Al has never chartered a jet to take his ugly ass anywhere to deal with this.

Is Obama saying that this was a late term postpartum abortion or is he simply agitating for a race riot to hide his incomprehensible anti-American record as President?

Or a call to the British families that lost their sons recently. They were vacationing in FL and walked out of a restaurant after eating with one of their mothers. They went to a couple of bars and apparently were loaded and mistakenly walked into a “rundown” neighborhood where 2 freakin’ thugs jumped them and demanded money, made them pull their pants down and opened fire on them hitting them multiple times.

Where is the call to those families??

While Geraldo blames the tragic death of Trayvon Martin on his mode of dress, I believe there is another element that the MSM will studiously ignore.

Barack Obama has done more to divide this nation along racial lines than anything I can remember. “African Americans for Obama”, “Hispanics for Obama,” “Martians for Obama”, etc., etc... are just part of it. This guy’s efforts to take us the rest of the way to communism have angered many of those who may already harbor latent or outright racist tendencies.

While Obama’s anti-American behavior has little to do with his race, there are unbalanced folks out here who DO read race into that behavior. Once they cross that threshold, their warped minds can justify nearly any act, up to and including the killing of an unarmed black boy walking through his neighborhood. I fear there is more — and worse — to come.

Barack, some of Trayvon Martin’s blood — and the blood of future black and white victims of your racism — is on YOUR hands.

Obama, whose-mom-doesn’t-look-like-Trayvon’s, was quick to call Sandra Fluke, who ,if had a daughter would look like Nancy Pelosi.

When will America’s first post racial president call Trayvon’s mom who doenst look like Camron Diaz?

As we both know, the technique is called “Divide and Conquer.”

And there will be MORE blood thanks to Obama and a lot of good people — black and white — will pay for his madness.

OBAMA, if you had a mother, would she look like Nancy Strait??

White 85 year old partially blind Nancy Strait was robbed, tortured, raped and beaten to death just the other day in Oklahoma by a gang of feral blacks.

Her 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten, his jaw broken, shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

.

While the Zimmerman ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by ‘African Americans’ in Oklahoma just the other day?

WHY NO MENTION ON THE MSM??
WHY DOES IT TAKE THE BRITS TO BRING THIS NEWS TO US??

.

There’s a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with BB gun?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage

Where is the outrage?
