Bee's note: Immediately after the shooting, President Obama stood before the media and announced that if he had a son, he would look exactly like Trayvon (the victim). He had chosen sides before a police investigation and trial. We then had the entire media (except for one) chant the praises of Trayvon, following in the footsteps of Obama. The media posted Trayvon's photo taken 5 years earlier and did not portray Trayvon as the 17 year old he was the night of the shooting. A year has passed, the trial is in process now in the state of Florida. We've learned that Trayvon may not be the victim but the perpetrator - the one who instigated a fight that should not have happened. However, the sad story is this trial is all about "race" and politics; not about the rainy night a 17 year old man was shot. Yes, Obama does put his foot in his mouth much like Biden; you could even say Obama "jumped the gun" before all the evidence was turned in and the guilty party exposed. The first black president of the United States has caused more racial divide in America since before the days of Dr. Martin Luther King's civil rights marches. How sad!!
There are thousands of murders in the U.S. yearly; over 50 in Obama's hometown of Chicago over the July 4th holiday; why would the President speak specifically about this one murder/death out of all the killings that occur daily? They thought the shooter was "white", but it turns out his parents were Mexican/Black - so much for a "racial" murder!!
A photo speaks louder than a thousand words, and can be used to sway the
sympathy of the crowds ... it's normally called propaganda.
Trayvon Martin - up to date photo
Photo of Trayvon the media used this past year!
Photo of a Miami ‘Justice for Trayvon’ rallyI posted this next story once before when Judicial Watch made note of it, but it bears repeating because Judicial Watch has recently secured the proof through FOIA requests. The story is this – Eric Holder’s DOJ helped organize protests against George Zimmerman. For their efforts, the DOJ was credited with the success of the protests by the protesters themselves.
This is sick!
…A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.
The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
CRS spent $674.14 between March 25-27 related to having been “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.” CRS spent another $1,142.84 for the same purpose between March 25-28…
Congratulations to our partners, Thomas Battles, Regional Director, and Mildred De Robles, Miami-Dade Coordinator and their co-workers at the U.S. Department of Justice Community Relations Service for their outstanding and ongoing efforts to reduce tensions and build bridges of understanding and respect in Sanford, Florida,” wrote Amy Carswell, Miami-Dade County Community Relations Board Program Officer, in an April 16 email.
“Thank you Partner. You did lots of stuff behind the scene to make Miami a success. We will continue to work together,” DOJ official Thomas Battles wrote in reply to Carswell…read the full story at the Daily Caller
Obama is not a uniter – he’s a divider. He would be fine with race riots though I am not entirely sure why.
