The press is fawning over Obama’s supposedly revealing and honest remarks about race, the most extensive of his Presidency we’re told.
On its face, this is classic Clintonesque triangulation. But upon closer inspection, it seems Obama has recently invented a novel technique in American politics. Obama’s twist on this classic triangulation is to simultaneously occupy two angles of that triangle.
For those of us with a memory longer than that of a goldfish, we recall that the administration has been active in the racial instigation surrounding the Zimmerman trial, and has even spent small amounts of public money promoting anti-Zimmerman hate rallies. The main culprit in the administration’s persecution is Attorney General Eric Holder, who refuses to allow George Zimmerman to even get his gun back following his acquittal. Eric Holder’s continued employment is Exhibit-A that the administration is not being honest about racial politics.
The Left’s actions in the Zimmerman case can only be viewed as self-promotion and perpetuation of the professionally aggrieved, the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of the world. Few following the legalities of the case expected a guilty verdict, and serious claims of prosecutorial misconduct have been leveled. The “black community” was set up for disappointment, sold a bill of goods that was unlikely to be delivered. One almost feels bad for those who were led to believe Zimmerman’s acquittal was unthinkable in a just society when in fact the acquittal was quite likely. Many knowledgeable commentators have noted that the case should never have been brought for lack of evidence.
Sadly, it seems the lapdog media will not only allow this blatant hypocrisy to continue, but will laud it.
