Skip to comments.White House slams Newt for criticizing Obama’s Trayvon remarks (Newt hammers and stuns Obama )
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 (Trayvons 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 Presidents 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."

(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.
You hit the nail right on the head!!! ABO!!!! Anybody But Obama!!!
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...
Again it’s Newt, making sense, exposing obama and making him respond. The picture of Travyon appears to be from the four year old pictures the press has been using, why don’t they use the recent pictures that are available?
ABO not going to work-you’ll see.
A whimp like Mitt will be destroyed.
He has no vetting yet. God, you people...think...
It was second nature to the Agitator in Chief.
It’s all he knows how to do.
I don’t know the country of family origin, but the Hispanic part is on his mother’s side, hence his non Hispanic last name.
I just got through reading that his father is Jewish...Zimmerman?
Somebody with access to a public microphone should be pounding der Fuehrer for parading the corpse for political gain ala muslim SOP.
for a narcissist, it’s always “about him”....it’s another way to try to relate to this poor family by figuring out a way to make it about him.
Remember how poorly Clinton handled his retirement from the presidency?
I cannot imagine what it’ll be like when americans fire Obama.
It’s going to be a never ending stream of whining.
I love Newt. He is so right on this. obama went off half cocked and damaged the prestige of the presidency. He is a light weight. Any lawyer should know better. There are no charges. there will be no charges. this thing is OVER!!
Newt shows the qualities of leadership. I am wondering if Sanatorium’s latest foot in mouth pandering to the Enimedia will doom him with his supporters. Do they have the guts to come over to Newt, or that Dastardly Villain Mittens. :)
By now Newt knows he can’t win—he knows he’s going down but at least he can do the nation a service and bring down Obama with him!
I think if Newt was the #1 candidate, Obama would have to wear his brown pants to the debate. There is NO way they can allow Newt to be the Candidate for Prez.
Sorry, but gotta disagree!!! If a blind monkey with one hand tied behind his back was running against Obama, I would vote for the monkey!!! I could care less who the Republican candidate is!!! Fact is: either Newt, Rick or Mitt are ten thousand times better than the America Destroyer, Barack Hussein “Muslim Brotherhood Loyalist” Obama!!!
Wow. That graphic is living testimony to the truth of the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words. Truly amazing.
Thanks for posting.
That's a good point. "The U.S. Department of Justice compiles statistics on crime by race, but only between and among people categorized as black or white." (In the wiki link above)
I’m glad Sarah saw this for the trap it is and stayed out of it.
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.
