Obama, top Democrats lay low as Martin story shifts
The Daily Caller ^ | Mar 29, 2012 | Neil Munro

Posted on 03/30/2012 3:06:09 AM PDT by expat1000

Top Democrats — including President Barack Obama’s re-election team — are now keeping their distance from the Trayvon Martin uproar, as each day reveals more facts about the teen’s slaying.

“As more facts come out, it’s more confusing for folks,” Sharon Gilpin, a Democratic political consultant, told The Daily Caller.

“There was a pretty intense rush to judgment … [but] it is important to get all your facts before you cement your feet in the sidewalk,” said Gilpin, who has worked on numerous Democratic campaigns and ballot initiatives.

“As tragic as this death is, there obviously is another side to the story,” former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis told TheDC. “We would all do well to wait for the facts to emerge.”

The whole thing has a “Duke lacrosse” smell to it.

“We would all do well to wait for the facts to emerge.”

The media should be tried in court for inciting riots and messages of hate. They could care less about any facts.

There were several things that made race baiting politicians and liberals in general were drooling to get this issue received national attention.(1) the victim is a young Black man. (2) The shooter’s is ‘White’, and even better, he has distinct Jewish last name. The anti Semitic crowd was getting new villain. (3) With Zimmerman being a neighborhood watch, it could be spinned as police brutality case. In other words, they thought they had young Mummia Abu Mammal in their hands. That the MSM showed a 12-yr old innocent looking boy pictures as a victim ignited them. Unfortunately for them, new information started to leak in and put doubts on the narrative.

Has anyone really driven home the idea yet that Zimmerman is a Minority???? His dad is Jewish and his mother is Hispanic?

I think we need to rile the Jewish and Hispanic populace the way the Dems are mobilizing the Blacks over this thing.

Explain to me what is 'tragic' about a No-Limit-Nigga black thug, a thief, a criminal, someone who was thrown out of high school who was walking around other peoples homes at night wearing a hood to conceal his face, attacking someone trying to follow him for security reasons, and get's shot in the process. He was a punk and a POS.

Tragic is a little girl dying of leukemia, or a soldier dying to protect his country. Not the death of this miscreant.

RACE WAR, COMING SOON TO A TOWN NEAR YOU: This thing could start a race war when the word really gets out that Zimmerman has a Jewish father and a Hispanic mother. Where is the outcry, from the Hispanic and Jewish communities, for the facts in this incident to emerge.

Facts are irrelevant. The only thing that matters is if Obama can use the shooting to stir up his base and further divide the country.

Now that is some serious in your face hard truth.

Kudos.

This is a pointed illustration of why Rush Limbaugh has brilliantly tagged the media with the description “Drive By Media”.
