I have a big piece up on Breitbart today about going over some of the ways that Obama administration facilitated and manipulated the Travvon Martin shooting. The piece starts:
The newest Obama scandal is seventeen months old.
Welcome to Trayvongate, where the President of the United Staters used both the bully pulpit, the Department of Justice and sly media manipulation to gin up charges of racism in the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin shooting. Now that the trial is almost finished and the only act of racism mentioned so far came from the victim–Martin called Zimmerman ‘a creepy ass cracker’ according to testimony–the cynical and repeated use of the race card by the White house is even more abhorrent.
Judicial Watch revealed documents today that proved what Breitbart News reported in April, 2012: that Eric Holder’s Department of Justice took an active role in racially charged rallies in Sanford, Florida and that the Community Relations Service helped force the temporary resignation of Sheriff Bill Lee. That resignation made it appear that Sanford authorities were suspect and possibly complicit in covering up something.
Some of my reporting at the time was based on interviews with numerous public officials in Sanford who wanted to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution from the Obama administration. They described a situation where the CRS team took over and forced decisions while clearing a path for protests and rallies that heightened the appearence of racial tensions.
Here’s Rev. Al Sharpton speaking at one of the rallies that the Obama DOJ helped to facilitate.
