It was bad enough that George Zimmerman was attacked, his head beaten into the pavement by a man who was bigger than him, which forced him to kill his attacker to defend his own life. Then he became the target of an unending propaganda campaign by a race-obsessed media, aided and abetted by the President of the United States himself. But Zimmerman’s not taking this one lying down.
The now-exonerated Zimmerman has spoken out against the man who turned him into Public Enemy #1, as reported by Rene Stutzman of the Orlando Sentinel:
This first public comments since the U.S. Department of Justice announced it would not prosecute him for violating Trayvon Martin’s civil rights, George Zimmerman says he was victimized by President Obama.
The president should never have allowed the DOJ investigation and is guilty of ramping up racial tension when he said, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon,” Zimmerman said…
“For him to make incendiary comments as he did and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution, he by far over-stretched, over-reached,” Zimmerman said.
The president, whom he referred to as “Barack Hussein Obama,” should have told the public, “‘Let’s not rush to judgment,'” Zimmerman said.
That’s precisely what Obama should’ve said. That would’ve been the presidential thing to say. Which is why he didn’t say it.
It’s tough to think of anything Obama has said or done that isn’t beneath the dignity of the presidency, but “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” was jaw-droppingly irresponsible even for him. Whether he meant to or not, and it’s tough to believe he didn’t, he condoned the lynching of an American citizen who acted in self-defense. He played games with the man’s life, threw him to a screaming mob, because dividing people by race has always suited his political purposes.
Obama behaved like a tyrant, because that’s exactly what he is.
You don’t have to like George Zimmerman personally to recognize that he has the same rights as any other U.S. citizen. If you disagree: Why do you hate Hispanics?
You have the right to defend your own life. Nobody has the right to attack you. Not even if he looks like Obama’s son.
