White House slams Newt for criticizing Obama’s Trayvon remarks (Newt hammers and stuns Obama )
NY Daily News ^ | March 25, 2012 | Alison Gendar

Posted on 03/25/2012 12:59:37 PM PDT by red flanker

The White House struck back at Newt Gingrinch on Sunday for the presidential wanna-be's criticism of Obama and his remarks about the Trayvon Martin killing.

The President said on Friday that “if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."

"I think (Trayvon’s parents) are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened," Obama said.

Gingrich, in a radio interview that same day, blasted the President’s comments as “disgraceful.”

"It's not a question of who that young man looked like," Gingrich said.

"Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. We should all be horrified, no matter what the ethnic background. Is the president suggesting that, if it had been a white who'd been shot, that would be OK, because it wouldn't look like him? That's just nonsense."

For weeks, Newt has been hammering Θbama on his high-price energy policy and winning the debate. The White House now fears Newt will alert America to Θbama's racially divisive policies and agencies and they and the lame stream media are out to destroy him.

Trayvons death is a tragedy.

Accidental, and tragic.

“Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. We should all be horrified, no matter what the ethnic background.”

In that case why haven't the media and the white house commented on the black thugs that poured gasoline on a white boy and lite him on fire ,Said the reason they did it is because he is white..

It is soooo past time to get these racist thugs out Of Washington they love it when something like this happen it gives them the chance to get the blacks in an uproar...Whites should get together and scream as loud as the blacks about what is going on..Lets hear the whole story about this boy and above all show us a picture of him when this happened..not an old picture.. I do not condone violence but I do not condone a President opening his big mouth and starting a race war..

Newt has the onions to call Hussein out on things like this where Mittens will just sit there and parrot the MSM line about "a conversation about race in this country". The problem with Newt isn't that he won't make a great candidate, it's that his ego trips him up all the time. He had momentum coming off of SC and he blew it!!! He can't be trusted during the general election not to blow it again. He knows how to talk the conservative talk, he can't walk the walk. That's why IMHO if he gets in he'd be another Nixon.

DISCLAIMER: If he's the nominee, I'm in 110% for him! AB0 2012!

Thank you! This message cannot be repeated too often, nor emphasized too greatly.

The insane death cult of islam truly is deserving of anger, outrage, and decisive self-defensive action if we are to have any hope of leaving anything of value to our children.

Mohammy’s murderous minions must be annihilated, or civilization itself will meet that fate instead.

I saw where the media is now calling Zimmerman a “white hispanic”. Reagarding the name, I read somewhere one parent is Jewish (guess that’s the ‘white’ part) & the other is Peruvian (so that must be the hispanic part).

It's been years since I read Susan Brownmiller's book Against Our Will and of course rape often warrants the same punishment as murder -- so what about these crime statistics, Hoodie White House?

(My emphasis)Rape in the United States I often wondered about this.

"The U.S. Department of Justice compiles statistics on crime by race, but only between and among people categorized as black or white. In 2005 there were 111,490 white and 36,620 black victims of rape or sexual assault. In 2005, out of the 111,490 cases involving white victims, 44.5% had white offenders and 33.6% had black offenders, while the 36,620 black victims had a figure of 100% black offenders, numbers of white offenders were estimated to be negligible (extrapolated from a sample size of fewer than 10 instances)."

Though wiki is sometimes wiki graffiti it appears that the above is documented unless I misread this DoJ document that apparently the Obama/Holder Dept. of Just Us has not yet erased See Percent distribution of single-offender victimizations, based on race of victims, by type of crime and perceived race of offender.

Newt is 110% correct. Obama never misses an opportunity for some political points. Now, that we know that the guy was beating Zimmerman, I wonder if Obama still wants a son like that. Newt was the first guy out of the gate, saying let the investigation go forward. I hope and pray that Newt comes back-some way some how and he goes right for this political-monster Obama. No one will be able to take on Obama like Newt can. Romney is already saying, we cannot be too critical on the opposing side. Why aren’t people thinking! Why are so many listening to the media of who can win. Look how the media told us that Zimmerman chased this young little kid down. Alot of people will have that in their minds for always/they’ll never get the real info. Newt has the guts to call things as they are. The others have to ask their advisors in what to say or not to say.

Which is exactly why even the GOP-e are trashing Newt as well. He’s the ONLY one up there with the actual balls to speak the TRUTH about what is happening in our country, and with the criminals in various places within our Federal Government in all 3 branches.

Even though some of those in the GOP can clearly see that Obama is dangerous they are so frightened that their gravy trains will be delayed or cancelled that they aren’t even willing to protect the COUNTRY out of fear for their own pockets being empty.

SOMEHOW we need to get rid of ALL of those folks in DC and elsewhere who are willing to sacrifice all of us in the hopes of being one of the politburo of the “new order”. Get them OUT of office, behind bars (as appropriate for a large number of them), and keep them away from any sort of public office forevermore.

I pray God will help us maintain a fighting chance by NOT allowing the GOPe to install Romney - that he influences the hearts and minds of those yet to vote in primaries - and opens their eyes and ears to the true choices before us. I pray this is all according to God’s will of course, but I can’t help but ask Him to shine an extra light on Newt...

The biggest, loudest, most visible RACIST in this land of the Americas is the U. S. Federal Government. They MANDATE that each individual be categorized by ethnicity and skin-color. They no longer help create a vast “melting-pot” of like-minded Citizens, but a “salad-bowl” polyglot of disparate, enforced groupings that they can pit against each other. FedGov issues Rules and Regulations and Money to enforce its Racist vision.

For instance:
FTA:

“A five-count indictment unsealed in Albany County Court on Monday accused the trio of murdering Bailey as they rode bicycles during a would-be gunpoint robbery Oct. 20 at South Lake Avenue and Yates Street.”
Read more: http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/3-charged-in-killing-of-student-553914.php#ixzz1qA6Vulj4http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/3-charged-in-killing-of-student-553914.php

The article does not anywhere note the race of the victim (Caucasian) not or the accused (Negros) but that is par for the Albany Times-Union which is political orientation can be classified as Pro-Occupiers even though they are part of the derided 1%.
The shooter just drove up and put a bullet in the back of Baily’s head while he walked down the street at night.

To show its sensitivity for the death of Trayvon the paper put a guest editorial in the paper, apparently the editorial staff were struck speechless by the tragedy and had a third of page insert written by WaPOSt’s Eugene Robinson. He askes the question: “How many George Zimmermans are out there cruising the streets?”... no “Black” is safe and then Robinson goes on to act like more Negros are currently dying at the hands of Causasians than visa-vera.

No, there were no editorials condemning “Black on White” violence like those of Baily but it was noted in a later
reported that his family recieved his dipoloma posthumously.

I have been leaning towards
santorum and donated once to his campaign. But after Santorum rolled over to the race pimps on this before knowing any facts, I definitely am pulling for Newt now.

WEST MONROE, La. — Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says the shooting of an unarmed teenager in an Orlando, Fla., suburb was “horrible” and that the case is, in his words, a “chilling example of the horrible decisions made by people in this process.”

The Trayvon Williams case is a golden opportunity to undermine the Florida concealed carry laws (disturbing to Liberals) and “stand your ground” concept. While Jeb Bush is on an “apology” tour for signing “stand your ground” you might be interested in this citation from the website www.guncite.com:

“In 1987, when Florida enacted such legislation, critics warned that the “Sunshine State” would become the “Gunshine State.” Contrary to their predictions, homicide rates dropped faster than the national average. Further, through 1997, only one permit holder out of the over 350,000 permits issued, was convicted of homicide. (Source: Kleck, Gary Targeting Guns: Firearms and Their Control, p 370. Walter de Gruyter, Inc., New York, 1997.) If the rest of the country behaved as Florida’s permit holders did, the U.S. would have the lowest homicide rate in the world.”

That makes 2 famous people seeking a “race war.”

Barack Obama and Charles Manson.

Manson’s “family” went around California stoking fears of the “coming race war.”

The major difference is, one occupies the Oval Office.

The other difference is, while Manson’s followers “murdered the rich pigs,” Omoslem uses surrogates (Black Panthers, OWS) domestically and moslem surrogates (Muslim Brotherhood) overseas to threaten and kill Jews... Christians... The “rich”....and Whitey.
