Why No Outrage?

If Barack Obama Had A Son Would He Look Like Chris Lane?

Where's the outrage from Barack Obama?

Or from Al Sharpton?

Or from Jessie Jackson?

Or from Oprah Winfrey?

I heard this on the radio this morning and thought I had just heard it wrong. They were BORED?? There is no punishment too great for this crime.

I don't understand how shooting someone wearing a hoodie who is bashing in your head is a hate crime, but this is not. They were bored and decided to shoot an innocent man who was jogging and was not a danger to them.

I don't like the idea of a hate crime. I think all crime is based on hate and all should be treated equally under the law, but if you're going to have marches and all manner of attention-magnet get-togethers, then you certainly need to include this horrific case.

The definition of hate crime is "white on black" crime. This particular story does not advance the democrat/media agenda and so it must be roundly ignored. Maybe the bicyclist "acted stupidly"?

It just hurts too much and is too sickening and shocking to even get mad. That sweet innocent young man.

cube - You raise a good point here.
This is such a sad situation. And nothing has been said from the president - it would have been appropriate.

cube said...

DaBlade: Gays too. According to the progressive agenda, we don't rate a news cycle.

Granny Annie: I know. It's a lose/lose scenario for everyone.

Sue Hanes: My point was a bit sarcastic. I don't think the president should've involved himself in the Zimmerman case at all. It's just not his place. He only did so because the victim was black.
