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.”
Is Obama saying that all black sons look alike? Why that’s racist!
Although I gotta admit that when I see BS in the cowpatch it often reminds me of Obama.
But I suspect that if Obama did have a biological son, it would look like Rosemary’s baby
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. This statement was a opportunity for the One to engage in solipsistic reveries for a son that he never had while delivering a racially devisive, condescending wink and nod shout out to the Black community for shared racial solidarity.
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.
Whatever his religion, whatever his real political convictions, Obama is at heart a tribalist. And his core supporters only care about the attributes that place him in his particular tribe. Are you listening Samuel L Jackson and Tom Joyner?
Liberals ALWAYS lecture us of the importantance of “nuance” is when considering matters of great import. Obama said that “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Now most of us quite properly recognize the most common route to fatherhood is the most enjoyable one, that which involves sexual reproduction. But that is not the ONLY route to fatherhood. It is not at all unusual for men to adopt children, often ones who don’t look like them, even from (gasp) DIFFERENT RACES!!!! Does this mean that Obama would exclude adopting a blond blue eyed child of Scandanavian descent or an almond eyed black haired child of Asian descent should he ever consider adopting so as to have a son? Or would the child have to have Trayvon’s racial grouping to be worthy of his consideration?
Now for those of you who would say that I am overreaching, I protest. I am trying to be nuanced like liberals are whenever they try to smear someone with whom they disagree.
And if Oblabla had a son I hope he wouldn’t be a narcissist, arrogant, prevaricating Marxist demagogic usurper like daddy.
What about all the boys, who look like him in Chicago, who are shooting each other and innocents by the dozens every weekend? Why isn’t he speaking out against this?
Are their lives worth less because it is black on black?
In his first memoir, “Dreams,” Obama included a description of black student life at Occidental College in Los Angeles in 1979, writing, “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.” — he added — “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.
It now appears as thought the kind of great racial healing Obama had in mind is the kind envisioned by Liberation Theology and Critical Race and Legal Theory wherein the dominant Judeo-Christian culture was destroyed and replaced by a Cultural Marxist/Socialist one. The kind that is occasioned by the sort of critical race and legal theory that the late great Andrew Breitbart is revealing in his series of videos on the young radicalized Barack Hussein Obama. Hey open your hearts and minds to Dr. Derrick Bell!!!!
As to the issue of soul searching, I aint into infanticide, presenting forged documents to usurp constitutional office, and lying every time my mouth moves. You better check yourself boss.
Sanford FL — 24 Mar 12 Members of the New Black Panther Party are offering a $10,000 reward for the “capture” of George Zimmerman, leader Mikhail Muhammad announced during a protest in Sanford today.
The bounty announcement came moments after members of the group called for the mobilization of 5,000 black men to capture George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin last month.
The New Black Panthers will hold a protest in Sanford just before 1 p.m. today, the activist group’s third protest in the past two weeks over the fatal shooting of the Miami Gardens teen.
The group called for Zimmerman’s arrest and threatened to find and detain him if police were not willing to do so. But group members didn’t call for the mobilization of thousands until Saturday.
Muhammed led the group in chanting “Justice for Trayvon!” and “Black Power!”
These clowns are putting a BOUNTY on an American citizen without a warrant having been issued by a lawful court????
Under Florida state law, this may qualify as an unlawful inducement to have someone kidnapped. Under Federal law, this appears to be an inducement to violate the civil rights of someone. I hope there are enough citizens who will start making the calls to law enforcement and grand juries to prosecute the people distributing these flyers.
Where are the solemn public pronouncements from the DOJ authorities advising of the potential illegalities of soliciting or suborning kidnapping, a Federal Offense?
These cretins were in the faces, literally, of the victims of the Duke Rape Hoax with death threats a few years ago. They are part of the same mob that advocated the hoaxes of the Jena 6 and Tawana Brawley.
Barack Obama has done more to divide this nation along racial lines than anyone that I can remember. “African Americans for Obama”, “Hispanics for Obama,” “Martians for Obama.” If you can concieve of a sociological fault line, Obama will be there to widen the fissure.
“We cannot allow a precedent when a man can just kill one of us … and then walk out with the murder weapon,” said civil rights leader Al Sharpton, flanked by Martin’s parents and a stage full of supporters at a rally in Sanford on Thursday night. “We don’t want good enough. We want George Zimmerman in court with handcuffs behind his back.”
If Sharpton had bothered to read the Sanford PD report #201250001136 entitled Homicide Negligent Manslaughter Unnecessary Killing to Prevent Unlawful Act he would have observed that Ofc Timothy Smith reported that “The Kel Tek hand gun that I collected from Zimmerman was placed into evidence under TS-1.” But facts and truth have NEVER posed an obstacle to Al Sharptoungue’s demogogery.
In today’s world, THE TRUTH NO LONGER MATTERS, just the narrative. The cultural Marxist lynch mob braying for Zimmerman’s scalp is forming a meta-narrative of outrage, anecdote, hype, demagoguery, lies, distortions, omissions, Marxist racial identity politics, and intimidation so as to enable an anti-american corruption of the rule law to further their warped racial grievance mongering agenda.
I was reading a letter from the great black American human Rights activist Ida B.Wells, who certainly knew a lot about lynchings, dated 1893 in which she is protesting the outrage to the American concept of the rule of law that lynching was. She rationally and deliberately outlines her case, in which she allows for the likelihood that many of the lynched were in fact GUILTY of some degree of lawlessness or other. But guilty or not ALL deserve the protection of the rule of law at all times and in all jurisdictions. She concludes with these statements, “So long as it is known that there is one charge against a man which calls for no investigation before taking his life there will be mean men seeking revenge ready to make that charge. Such a condition would soon destroy all law.” And this: The real need is for a public sentiment in favor of enforcing the law and giving every man, white and black, a fair hearing before the lawful tribunals.
Even if Zimmerman is GUILTY he is entitled to the presumption of innocence.
I caught this gem listed on Craig’s List:
Fifty-year old manure spreader. Not sure of brand. Said to have been produced in Kenya. Used for a few years in Indonesia before being smuggled into the US via Hawaii. Of questionable pedigree. Does not appear to have ever been worked very hard. Apparently it was pampered by various owners over the years. It doesn’t work very often, but when it does it can really spread the manure and sling it for amazing distances. I am hoping to retire this manure spreader next November. But I really don’t want it hanging around getting in the way. I would prefer a foreign buyer that is willing to relocate this manure spreader out of the country. I would be willing to trade this manure spreader for a nicely framed copy of the United States Constitution properly enacted.
So in conclusion Let me say: Barack Hussein Obama Umm Ummm Ummmmm.
