| President Obama shamelessly injected himself into the sad Trayvon Martin case today, much the way he did with Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates. (Trayvon Martin was a young black teen killed under questionable terms by a neighborhood watch team) In a Rose Garden speech where he was to announce his choice for the new head of the World Bank he decided to comment, as he so often does, on something he is not supposed to comment on.
His comments can be read here.
What is sickening is the way the POTUS injected himself into this particular story. First, as is now typical, he comments that he can't say to much about the issue - then proceeds to say much about the issue. He talks about how the issue would affect his own daughters, and then states that Trayvon Martin looks like his son - if he had a son. In other words, an attack, accidental or otherwise, on a young black youth is an attack on him and his family - even if the family member in question is a nonexistent son. What a narcissistic fool!
Obama also stated that his Attorney General would be investigating the case to find out what happened. I can only imagine someone acted stupidly! It's funny how Attorney General Eric Holder has to be dragged kicking and screaming to a House investigation into gun running to Mexican drugs lords (Fast and Furious = thousand of guns and dead US border agents), but runs full speed toward a case in which a young black man is killed in questionable terms.
I assure you this is not our POTUS saying stupid stuff once again. This speech today is a carefully crafted sermon that elevates race into the public spotlight so Obama can avoid the problems with the economy for another week or two. This story will make the mainstream media salivate! They will show Obama making a number of 'MLK' type speeches that will play to his base and get black America whipped into a frenzy. He is playng the race card pure and simple.
We are going to see stories like this elevated on a daily or weekly basis to front page stories so Obama can march, sermonize and minister to his base about the ills of society, guns and the never ending racial divide. 'Those damned white folks clinging to their guns'!!
The best thing the GOP mouthpieces can do right now is keep their mouths shut about this case and hope it goes away. Every minute Obama prattles on about it will be one less minute he talks about the economy and the problems affecting everyone else in America.
Oh, and don't be surprised is he has to have his minions (enter Al Sharpton) coerce a bit of street violence and a marching protest or two to get everyone's attention to this matter. I would go so far as to say seomone else will die before this is over.... Thanks again Obama for making the USA a more racially divided country...
