Obama Responds to Zimmerman Verdict: ‘Stem the Tide of Gun Violence’ — For Trayvon
President Barack Obama issued a long-awaited response Sunday afternoon to the acquittal of George Zimmerman Saturday evening, reminding Americans to temper “passions,” and that “we are a nation of laws and the jury has spoken.”
He added that Americans should “honor” the life of Trayvon Martin by committing to “stem the tide of gun violence,” and “ask ourselves if we are doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion in our communities.”
The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.
Did ANYONE expect anything other than an anti-GUN statement from Barack Hussein Obama and his fellow *RACE PIMPS*??
Obama wants to HONOR Trayvon Martin by *stemming the tide of gun violence*? That smacks of more efforts from Obama and his *boy* Eric Holder to enact stricter gun control regulations.
And WHY exactly is Trayvon Martin worth ANY honor? He was a wannabe ‘hood rat, he was expelled from school, he was into dope, why would any *honorable* person see Martin as deserving of *honor*?
A very large portion of the Black community in America is OUTRAGED over the verdict handed down by a jury that was seated by a thought to be VERY Liberal Florida judge, the prosecutors in the case and the defense attorneys.
That jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY, so many Blacks, and surprisingly, a goodly number of White people are OUTRAGED and want to see the Black community rise up and do violence against White people, all in the name of Justice for Trayvon.
So, where is the OUTRAGE for these murders?
Why hasn’t Obama and his *RACE PIMP* buddies, Al $harpton and Je$$ie Jack$on beat their chests and torn their hair out over this *tragedy*?
I’ll tell you why; Obama, $harpton and Jack$on are the biggest racial HYPOCRITES in this nation. There is no *race baiting* that can be done if it’s a Black on Black crime. In other words; there is NO political traction to be gained and there’s NO money to be made by declaring OUTRAGE at the 11,106 MURDERS of Blacks by other Blacks.
That *faux outrage* is what I have written about in the past; the selective outrage and hypocrisy of people like those mentioned above as RACE PIMPS.
The trial of George Zimmerman was a farce, one perpetrated upon the people of Florida, and foisted off by the media on the people of America, one that was specifically designed to inflame racial divide and to incite violence.
I found this on a Facebook page of a friend:
I saw this on an Industry Friend’s personal wall, where he shared another buddy’s wall post. I haven’t laughed this hard in a while….
“Well, a Hispanic male got acquitted in the shooting of a black teenager… and threats are being made against whites… so I’m gonna punch an Asian in the face for no reason just so no one feels left out…”
Political correctness needs to be *all inclusive* you know. 😛
