This post isn’t about the Treyvon Martin/Zimmerman case, per se. It’s about the president inserting himself in a local matter where he has no business at all. Does he take orders from Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers, or vice versa?
But even beyond that, I was interested in who set this question up for him, as it was asked at a press conference choosing Jim Jong Kim as leader of the world bank, a totally unrelated matter. This was completely a staged question just so he could weigh in on the matter. He wants to add fuel to the fire instead of tamping it down, as a true leader would do. I don’t know for what reason exactly, but it does seem eerily similar to his “the police acted stupidly” remark from early in his administration.
Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers are down in Florida and that is enough for me to tune out completely.
Anyway, we are entirely too quick to accept the media portrayal of this incident. The button has been pushed for a media frenzy and now obama has ratcheted it up to top priority. I am tired of things being tried in the media without one shred of sworn testimony and without the limitation of the rules of evidence. I believe we should reject this. We know they lie.
But, as I said, I was interested in it solely from the aspect of who raised the question and why. Who raised it? Mike Viquiera from (state owned) NBC. And you don’t think NBC and the white house set this up? I certainly do.
It was NBC’s Mike Viquiera who asked. “Mr. President, may I ask you about this current case in Florida, very controversial, allegations of lingering racism within our society — the so-called do not — I’m sorry — Stand Your Ground law and the justice in that? Can you comment on the Trayvon Martin case, sir?”
“Allegations of lingering racism within our society” makes this a racially charged question and it is infuriating that our president is such a racially biased individual that he does not even rebuke him for the question but launches into a statement about his children and talking about “soul searching!” He is using his children for political purposes quite a lot lately. And if anybody needs to do soul searching, it is barack obama.
So the MSM is at it again, helping obama. Except I don’t see how it helps him all that much. It just makes him appear oh so small and narrow of mind and spirit and so totally unqualified or suited for the high office that he holds.
(P. S. I think I know now. To give an excuse for the MSNBC to go on a tirade of how all the republican candidates, Rush Limbaugh, and republicans in general are racists – can you say it? – racists – raaaacists, shout it out! and say we are all hideous and horrible persons as I just heard somebody named Karen Tinney ridiculously rant. Good grief! But it goes to prove that, yes, NBC did set this up and now they run with it, all probably coordinated by the white house and media matters. Are there those who are weak-minded enough to fall for this? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/03/it-begins-far-left-media-ties-trayvon-martin-killing-to-rush-limbaugh-video/ )
The man who started out his campaign with a message of unifying America has turned out to be the one most divisive president in history.
