President Barack Obama spoke about Trayvon Martin’s killing from the White House James S. Brady Press Briefing room. His comments were beneath the office of the presidency.
How did the death of this black teen rise to the level of a national crisis? It happened because race hucksters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson decided it was a national story, and because Obama obliged them.
“First of all, I want to make sure that, once again, I send my thoughts and prayers, as well as Michelle’s, to the family of Trayvon Martin,” Obama said.“Once again” because in 2012 after Trayvon Martin was shot in self-defense by George Zimmerman, Obama thought it was his presidential duty to wade into the episode and take sides without knowing facts.
“If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon,” Obama declared that first time, reinforcing the exploitation of white on black racism pushed by Sharpton and his gang. When Hadiya Pendleton was gunned down in Chicago in January 2012 by two young black gang bangers, days after she performed at his second inaugural, Obama didn’t say, “Hadiya looks like my daughters.”
