Charles Krauthammer on Obama’s Trayvon Martin Speech: “I Thought It was a Political Speech Addressed to his Constituents on the Left … Obama Reracialized the Event”


Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer put forth his opinions on Barack Obama’s Trayvon Martin speech.  He stated he thought it was a political speech addressed to his constituents on the Left, which was unfortunate.  Krauthammer then said that it was “not enlightening”  and the Trayvon Martin case was not about race. However, Obama reracialized it by his speech.  Krauthammer then stated that he thought Obama did this speech as he knows there is no way they can bring Civil Rights charges against George Zimmerman. There is no there, there.

From Town Hall - Krauthammer: Obama’s Trayvon Speech “Not Enlightening”–The Trial Was Not About Race:

I’ve heard too many conservatives give the thumbs up to The One’s “heart-felt” and “genuine” speech. There are two reasons I don’t like it and these two reasons were the thread running through his 17 minute speech: 1) He was an apologist for black victim hood. 2) He appealed to the sentiments of white guilt. That in itself disqualifies the speech from having any positive or redemptive aspects. When he tried to speak “positive” at the end, it was immediately nullified based on the first part of his speech–the 9 or so minutes of his NAACP-like talking points.

      Can’t say it enough ” Reverend Wright”
      Rich white people

      If a 2008 presidential aspirant had spent 20 years in the pews of David Duke, former Grand Dragon of the KKK, who aslo ran for political office in Louisana, that aspirant at best would be ignored

      Duke was a candidate in the Democratic presidential primaries in 1988

      This speech is in keeping with most of his speeches where he pushes the race card. There is zero possibility of making a true civil rights case against George Zimmerman. However, he knows that he will be able to “rabble rouse” the ignorant ones to create havoc in the cities.

      AS I’ve mentioned I live in a middle class mixed area neighborhood in Florida. Out & about I’m never afraid of the minority Asian or Mexican men who always wave, smile & say hello, often with small children in tow.

      Black male teens, with some exception, are generally scowling, holding their crotches, while the young women seem anger incarnate.
      It’s so sterotypical as to seem a lie.
