Do you think so, Mr. President?
President Obama spoke out for the first time on Friday about the fatal shooting of an unarmed 17-year-old African-American boy in Florida named Trayvon Martin, calling it a “tragedy.”
“I can only imagine what these parents are going through,” Mr. Obama said from the White House Rose Garden, “and when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids, and I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and that everybody pulls together, federal, state and local, to figure out how this tragedy happened.”
Mr. Obama said he is glad the Justice Department is investigating the shooting and that Florida Gov. Rick Scott formed a task force in response to the incident as well. The president suggested he was sympathetic to suspicion that the shooting may have been racially motivated.
“You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Mr. Obama said.
What, you don’t think your son might look like one of these guys?
Sure, they’re representative of just some of the 300 dead Mexicans and two federal agents your Administration helped murder with the Operation Fast and Furious gun-running plot, and they’re not the “right” kind of minority for you to care what happens to them. But you know what?
They were somebody’s sons, too. And your Administration contributed to their murders by putting thousands of weapons in cartel hands, to push for gun control and defend your infamous “90-percent lie.”
