Skip to comments.White House spokesman ‘not familiar with’ Chris Lane murder
Posted on 08/21/2013 12:35:35 PM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost
Josh Earnest, principal deputy White House press secretary, said he was not familiar with the murder of Australian jogger Chris Lane during Wednesdays White House briefing.
When asked by Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry about the Chris Lane case, Earnest responded, Im not familiar with it, actually.
Henry explained the case in brief to Earnest looking for reaction to the Oklahoma shooting death of Lane at the hands of bored African-American teens who thought it would be fun to kill somebody.
This sounds like a pretty tragic case. I wouldnt want to get ahead of the legal process here and its clear that law enforcement officials are involved and are investigating, Earnest said. But any act of violence is something that the president I think himself has spoken pretty eloquently about violence in our communities and he stood at this podium a few weeks ago where he talked about his concern about the impact that violence is having on, in particular, young people in this country.
Sure as heck heard of Trayvon Martin within minutes - inhaled all the MSM lies. The hypocrisy of this regime knows no end.
Well they are now — ask them again in 10 minutes
If Big Media maintains the same crap level of journalism they displayed in the Zimmerman case, this incident will be be reported by CNN, NY Slimes, NBC, et al, as “a car pulled up behind Christopher Lane, and a confrontation ensued”.
They don’t know anything that doesn’t happen on the back 9 or in the Lincoln Bedroom.
Mr. Obama : “If I had triplet sons, they’d look like . . . “
Trayvon was hardly cold when the WH chimed in, Chris Lane however, doesn’t fit their racial template. You would also think that this senseless shooting would fan the flames of Obama’s call for more gun regulation, but again nothing because the shooting doesn’t fit their racial agenda.
The White House Clown contingent is “unaware” of just about everything in the outside world except for the latest Rolling Stone, bimbo and bimboy “actors”, and the latest set of golf clubs.
BS! Another day another lie from the regime.
You mean like you did with the Martin case?
Earnest is liar, it seems to me.
Unless, he’s the guy they keep locked in a closet and is only let out when there are tough questions to be answered.
Had the victim been black and the 3 shooters been white you bet your butt Obama would have already been talking about it for the past few days. He would’ve shed a fake tear or two about his “son” being shot in cold blood.
I can’t stand the hipocracy of this administration!
The White House is only “Familiar” with cases that they can use to promote their radical agenda..since the victim was white..oh excuse me, I forgot, a “White Australian” and the thugs who killed him were black(Waiting for photos of the thugs as 2 year olds in diapers) Obama has nothing to say..doesn’t fit into his agenda
The Importance of being Earnest.
At least this is what I assume my liberal family members argument would be after hearing their defense of St. Trayvon.
How incredibly insensitive and racist of them. They sure as heck know about it. They read Drudge, no doubt.
We only get ahead of the legal process in selected cases
I say, dear boy. Have you heard of this ghastly murder?
No not a word, old man, do tell.
Josh Earnest=LARGE. STEAMING. PILE.
Except he was jogging alone, and they had to follow him in a car to get close enough to shoot him in the back. But I'll take your sarcasm, anyway...
Gee, I sure hope Obama doesn’t get bored. With his toys for thrill, we could all be in a heap o’ danger.
Well, the WH spokesman should be familiar with the murder, this was an Australian citizen gunned down in the streets of the black thug infested USA. How about the State Department, they have anything to say?
He was probably jogging very agressively though...
Earnest...IT’S ONLY AN INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT, you lying bastard.
This is the equivalent of Sgt. Schultz saying “I know nothing”.
Instead of saying “Not Familiar With” they are basically saying “I got nuthin”. They know, they just ain’t saying.
Good point. This isn’t a local story by any means. It will impact tourism since the victim was from Australia.
Translated: It's a shame when fine, upstanding members of the thug culture face negative consequences for exercising their "diversity."
Our imperial administration is far removed from what takes place in the US.
You have to give the man a break. The White Hut gets their news from MSNBC. If it isn’t there it didn’t happen.
Well, at least the right people are dying/s
This shooting puts a dent in 0bama’s newly announced policy via HUD to forcibly integrate blacks into white communities. 0bama/Holder are laying the groundwork for more ‘jogger shootings’. Their army disguised as ‘bored teens getting their thrills’. The body count adds up, you know..
This harms relations with an ally.
They know about it, they just don’t want to talk about it because it does not fit their script.
I mean, what’s OdumbO even going to say to them? If I had sons they would look like the gangster thugs that murdered your countryman to alleviate their boredom?
Oh Heaven forbid, they do that.
Are we to assume your sarc tag is broken?
Hate them? Hate crime.
Yeah, right. They’re (WH) probably getting prizes ready for the murderers.
That’s an interesting point: why has the Australian PM learned about this, and spoken about it, while the White House has done neither?
When (if?) we do hear from the WH about this case, I expect the message to be that we all must do something to bring the poor youth up from poverty. More money spent a dozen different ways is the only thing that will make a difference. If the GOP was not so reluctant to spend more money, kids would not be so bored that they have to go out and kill people.
Unfortunately for Trayvon Martin’s surrogate daddy Barack H Obama II, there are millions of decent American’s whose son looks like Chris Lane. Where’s the national dialogue on race now Barry?
He might have clicked his car door locks, had he been driving. They were traumatized by the thought of that...
The Pres and Sec State owe are good ally a statement on the issue. I’m sure it will be about guns rather that feral toots, but at least something. This effects our relations with and important country.
0bama and Holder are secretly glad that Chris Lane was murdered, because they see it as justified payback for Trayvon. Their feigned ignorance, their deafening silence, only confirm it.
Seriously, does anyone who has thought this over not think this is true?
Remember this face, it is that of a LIAR...
Josh Earnest: Im not familiar with it, actually.
Unless he was in a cave yesterday he couldn't have missed it.
Maybe he was moonwalking?
White people deserve it.
Oklahoma has the Death Penalty. Holder will take over the case.
