Newt Gingrich said President Obama’s words regarding black homicide victim Trayvon Martin were “despicable”, when Obama remarked that Martin could have been his son. Jesse Jackson is yelling that blacks are under attack. Al Sharpton is yelling again. The evil white man vs. victimized black man racial fire has been re-ignited and the alleged killer, George Zimmerman, has gone into hiding. Who could blame him? Notice, the wanted poster on the right says “dead or alive” (photos KHOW.com). New Black Panther spokesman Mikhail Muhammad has offered a $10,000.00 reward for the “capture” of Zimmerman and is asking for 10,000 black men (not 10,000 men – that’s 10,000 black men) to hunt Zimmerman down and mete out some justice – “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, says Muhammad. You can draw whatever inference you choose to draw from those words as to Muhammad’s intentions.
Zimmerman, who looks like a latino and is reported to be Spanish-speaking, is being portrayed by the political left and by the vaunted American Press Corps as a white man. The racial fires are heating up.
So, where’s the President now? The one who was going to be the great uniter of all peoples and the one who would bring reason and justice to all nations? He stuck his nose into a local homicide case, threw some gasoline on the flames of racial division and now he stands silently, watching them burn.
As Peter Boyles said today on his morning talk-radio show, during the past week, three young men were shot to death out here in the Denver metro area. All of the suspects in the shootings are young black males. Two of the three victims were black males. The third victim was a latino male. Boyles asked a good question: Why all of the vitriol, demonstrations and vigilante rhetoric for Trayvon Martin’s murder and why not for the three victims here in Denver? They’re just as dead as Trayvon Martin is.
Where’s Attorney General Eric Holder with all of this New Black Panther vigilante talk going on? You see, ladies and gentlemen, this entire administration that sold itself as offering a new, fresh, reasonable start toward solving the nation’s problems has turned out to be nothing more than a divisive, racially biased mob-complicit anti-American wrecking ball that is sitting in silence while Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do everything they can do to fan the flames.
Think back a little more than three years ago, when George W. Bush left office. Were race relations as tense then, compared to how they are now?
Answer: No. The nation is ripped apart by hatred and fear. And to whom should we look for why that is so? Who’s in charge? This man, Obama, began his term in office with a 70% approval rating. He had the overwhelming support of America. He needs to look in the mirror if he wonders what’s gone wrong. By saying nothing now, other than what he’s already said, he is guilty by complicity of the results of wherever this Trayvon Martin murder fallout goes. This is not the kind of leadership America needs or deserves.
The facts of the Trayvon Martin case have yet to be fully revealed. Let the grand jury investigation proceed. Barack Obama should tell the mobs to go home and wait for a True Bill or a No True Bill. But, he won’t.
