It’s midwinter in 2012, Obama’s approval rating is hovering around 47%, the American people still disapprove of Obamacare, and the House Oversight Committee is holding hearings on Fast & Furious, the botched BATF gun-running operation into Mexico. The election is a mere 9 months away.
Suddenly, a little-known story appears in Sanford, Florida where an innocent black teen carrying a bag of Skittles is killed by a white man and no charges were filed. What a perfect opportunity to claim racial bias and mobilize the black vote, particularly in the swing state of Florida.
Enter Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to set the stage, and 40 some days after the tragedy, President Obama makes a statement claiming that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. A race-hustling mob ensued, helped along the way by a compliant media demanding “justice” for Trayvon Martin. NBC creatively edits a 911 dispatcher tape to make Zimmerman look bad (lawsuit pending). The Florida criminal justice system got compromised, all in an effort to help Obama win re-election. By the way, George Zimmerman is not white, he’s Hispanic.
The timeline of the Zimmerman debacle. Note the dateline for the following story, below.

Good question: Why is the media ignoring the Fort Hood shooter trial of Nidal Hasan?
imagine the outrage if the roles were reversed and the term “crazy ass cracker” were used
Holder is moving on to politicize Florida’s law, even though the defense did not use it in Zimmerman’s defense. It’s difficult to retreat when you are pinned to the ground getting your face bashed in.

The Teamsters and Hoffa Jr backed O-care and Obama, now they are crying in their beer. Tough. He must have forgotten that the Teamsters endorsed Reagan.
