Barack Obama once again used the Trayvon Martin incident to push an agenda, his gun control agenda. On Sunday afternoon, Obama asked that Americans temper “passions” and reminded them that “we are a nation of laws and the jury has spoken,” even while his own administration has ignored many of our nations laws and even violated them.
He then used the death of delinquent Trayvon Martin saying that his death should be honored by Americans committing to “stem the tide of gun violence.”
Obama said that we should “ask ourselves if we are doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion in our communities.”
Perhaps Mr. Obama should ask himself that. After all, it is because of his own statements that the George Zimmerman/ Trayvon Martin incident was even brought to the national stage. It’s also because of his own Justice Department that Zimmerman was even charged and that protests ensued.
