Tasteless: Obama 2012 Sells Hoodies to Exploit Death of Trayvon Martin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: You want to hear something that's just plain tasteless? The Obama reelect campaign -- Obama 2012 -- is now selling hoodies that say, "Obama 2012" on them. The Barack Obama reelection effort is exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, in order (obviously, here) to secure votes (as though he needs them) from African-Americans. Hoodies, 2012! You know, Thomas Sowell has a column out today on this whole thing, and he comes out in defense of Geraldo Rivera. You know, Rivera took some heat because he suggested that Trayvon Martin should get rid of the hoodie. (paraphrased) "For crying out loud, you're telling everybody who you are! They call it a hoodie for a reason: You're a hood. Don't wear the hood!"

And a lot of people had problems with that. "Geraldo, how dare you be so discriminatory?"

Thomas Sowell said (paraphrased), "Wait a second here. It does matter how people dress. It does say something about you. There are uniforms for gangs and other things. If you're gonna be walking through a neighborhood that you know is dangerous," and he cites an example when he was at Harvard. When he had to walk through a very tough Irish neighborhood near the campus, he would never wear anything that would incite them, 'cause it was reality. Yeah, it was a shame he had to do it. So he comes out in defense of Geraldo. Here is the Barack Obama reelection committee, campaign, whatever, exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin by selling Obama 2012 hoodies.

That's just tasteless.

Hoodie is as hoodie does. This kid in Florida is certainly not who the drive-bys first claimed he was. And lo, couldn't we say that about 0bama in 2008 - that he wasn't quite who he and the MSM claimed he was? The hoodies seems like the perfect fashion choice for a gangsta regime led by a Gangsta-in-Chief.

Why hoodies?

Shouldn’t he be selling Hollister instead?
