I find it absolutely fascinating that President Obama commented on the Zimmerman trial. All politics aside, how did Obama even know to get involved? This is the president who claims he’s been “uninformed” about every scandal that happens under his so-called administration, and yet, as soon as there’s a media-crazed trial where race or gun control policies could be turned in liberals’ favor, he’s suddenly completely aware and in the middle of it. What’s he been doing in office, that he’s been too busy to notice while we’re sending weapons to Mexican gangs and carrying out full-scale Big Brother operations? Certainly not reading the various 3,000 page bills that have been pushed through at 2 in the morning.
Or maybe he has. That’d explain his time issues. Now, while he’s making these statements about Martin, appealing to African-Americans on the basis that the victim was one of their color, he’s also endorsing easier, fully legal abortions. Judging by the last few years, Obama’s Harvard J.D. was in political weaseling.
Tell me, Mr. Obama: what about the 50 percent of African-American children who lose their lives to abortion every year? Could none of them “been your son,” or “been you in 35 years?” You’re responsible for the deaths of countless children who were far more innocent than Martin, and yet, they continue to be slain because their own parents don’t want them.
If you can claim to be pro-life when it comes to the guilty, then it’s time to do some soul searching of your own, just like you told America to do about gun control. Martin committed assault of a potentially fatal magnitude. Fifty percent of black children never see daylight. And yet, when both die because of circumstances outside their control, your sympathy goes to Martin.
To use my favorite term from the 2008 campaign: This is a true Obamanation. Hypocrisy and political dealing at its worst. Before this president can claim to care about African-Americans’ well-being, he needs to defend those in the group who need him the most. Until then, this is a demeaning display of race-baiting for Obama’s own liberal ends, not empowerment of African-Americans as they’re being tricked into believing.
