White House spokesman ‘not familiar with’ Chris Lane murder
The Daily Caller ^ | August 21, 2013 | Caroline May

Posted on 08/21/2013 12:35:35 PM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost

Josh Earnest, principal deputy White House press secretary, said he was not familiar with the murder of Australian jogger Chris Lane during Wednesday’s White House briefing.

When asked by Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry about the Chris Lane case, Earnest responded, “I’m not familiar with it, actually.”

Henry explained the case in brief to Earnest looking for reaction to the Oklahoma shooting death of Lane at the hands of “bored” African-American teens who thought it would be “fun” to kill somebody.

“This sounds like a pretty tragic case. I wouldn’t want to get ahead of the legal process here and it’s clear that law enforcement officials are involved and are investigating,” Earnest said. “But any act of violence is something that — the president I think himself has spoken pretty eloquently about violence in our communities and he stood at this podium a few weeks ago where he talked about his concern about the impact that violence is having on, in particular, young people in this country.”

Ed Henry should be commended for pointing out the hypocrisy and blatant lies coming from this White House.

Sure as heck heard of Trayvon Martin within minutes - inhaled all the MSM lies. The hypocrisy of this regime knows no end.

If Big Media maintains the same crap level of journalism they displayed in the Zimmerman case, this incident will be be reported by CNN, NY Slimes, NBC, et al, as “a car pulled up behind Christopher Lane, and a confrontation ensued”.

Trayvon was hardly cold when the WH chimed in, Chris Lane however, doesn’t fit their racial template. You would also think that this senseless shooting would fan the flames of Obama’s call for more gun regulation, but again nothing because the shooting doesn’t fit their racial agenda.

The White House Clown contingent is “unaware” of just about everything in the outside world except for the latest Rolling Stone, bimbo and bimboy “actors”, and the latest set of golf clubs.

Slime.

Pure slime.

Unless, he’s the guy they keep locked in a closet and is only let out when there are tough questions to be answered.

Had the victim been black and the 3 shooters been white you bet your butt Obama would have already been talking about it for the past few days. He would’ve shed a fake tear or two about his “son” being shot in cold blood.
I can’t stand the hipocracy of this administration!

The White House is only “Familiar” with cases that they can use to promote their radical agenda..since the victim was white..oh excuse me, I forgot, a “White Australian” and the thugs who killed him were black(Waiting for photos of the thugs as 2 year olds in diapers) Obama has nothing to say..doesn’t fit into his agenda

Can we agree that probably both sides were at fault? He shouldn't have been jogging behind them and they shouldn't have shot him. If the youths perceived the jogger as "following" them, they would have been well within their rights to attack him. If he would have just stayed at home and kept to himself none of this would have happened.

At least this is what I assume my liberal family members argument would be after hearing their defense of St. Trayvon.

Except he was jogging alone, and they had to follow him in a car to get close enough to shoot him in the back. But I'll take your sarcasm, anyway...

Well, the WH spokesman should be familiar with the murder, this was an Australian citizen gunned down in the streets of the black thug infested USA. How about the State Department, they have anything to say?

This is the equivalent of Sgt. Schultz saying “I know nothing”.

Instead of saying “Not Familiar With” they are basically saying “I got nuthin”. They know, they just ain’t saying.

Good point. This isn’t a local story by any means. It will impact tourism since the victim was from Australia.

This shooting puts a dent in 0bama’s newly announced policy via HUD to forcibly integrate blacks into white communities. 0bama/Holder are laying the groundwork for more ‘jogger shootings’. Their army disguised as ‘bored teens getting their thrills’. The body count adds up, you know..

Exactly.

This harms relations with an ally.

They know about it, they just don’t want to talk about it because it does not fit their script.

I mean, what’s OdumbO even going to say to them? If I had sons they would look like the gangster thugs that murdered your countryman to alleviate their boredom?

When (if?) we do hear from the WH about this case, I expect the message to be that we all must do something to bring the poor youth up from poverty. More money spent a dozen different ways is the only thing that will make a difference. If the GOP was not so reluctant to spend more money, kids would not be so bored that they have to go out and kill people.

Unfortunately for Trayvon Martin’s surrogate daddy Barack H Obama II, there are millions of decent American’s whose son looks like Chris Lane. Where’s the national dialogue on race now Barry?

Here's the sickening truth:

0bama and Holder are secretly glad that Chris Lane was murdered, because they see it as justified payback for Trayvon. Their feigned ignorance, their deafening silence, only confirm it.

Seriously, does anyone who has thought this over not think this is true?
