Governor Palin Discusses Trayvon Martin Tragedy

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Todd Starnes reports Governor Palin's comments about the tragic Trayvon Martin tragedy:

“It’s not going to do anybody any good to ratchet up the rhetoric based on speculation,” Palin told Fox News. She shared her observations just hours after Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush was asked to leave the House floor after donning a hooded sweatshirt to protest Martin’s death.


“What concerns me – the facts still aren’t out there,” Palin said. “Obviously when we hear about a 17-year-old young man losing his life, it’s tragic. It’s horrible. I am so, so extremely sorry for the family.”

But she was upset at Rush’s display on the House floor calling it “atrocious.”
“Racial profiling has to stop,” said Rush as he removed his suit jacket. “Just because someone is wearing a hoodie, doesn’t make them a hoodlum.”

“It’s quite appalling that Rep. Rush chose to go this route,” she said. “There are other ways to get your message across. It’s really bad precedent that he’s trying to set – violating such tradition and such rules to make a political statement.”

She also called out President Obama – saying he should not have jumped into the growing outrage over the shooting.

“I think it was orchestrated,” Palin said. “I’m going to get clobbered for even suggesting this, but it is what I believe.”

The president addressed the shooting in the Rose Garden.

“My main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said. “All of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves.”

“Obviously, this is a tragedy. I can only imagine what these parents are going through,” Obama said. “All of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how something like this has happened.

Palin said she was “very, very surprised out of all the issues that are going on in our country today that the president” would have taken a question about the Martin case.

She said the politicization of the shooting is unfair to Martin’s parents.

“It’s unspeakable the hurt, the sorrow, the loss this family is feeling,” she said. “People who are jumping in there without having all the facts first are making the situation even worse when you consider we are talking about a young man’s life.”

I don't post comments by nasty, delusional, sick people, so you can stop stalking my site to see if I have. I do believe in praying for your salvation, though. May Jesus fill you up with His deliverance and Spirit. And I do mean that.

To the delusional stalker: get more rest--and maybe some meds. You're projecting. Your efforts to accuse...fall way flat and reveal you to be the hypocrite that you are. Leftists are hilarious! They use falsehoods as insults, then try to pretend they weren't trying to be insulting. Insults from the left who can't discuss issues so resort to throwing arrows (dull ones, at that)? Totally predictable! You're wasting your time; the Spirit of God within me cannot be broken, and I'm not scratching my head thinking I'm a lesbian, which you want me to be because you cannot fathom a straight BLACK American who knows and supports Governor Palin, along with her Christian, Constitutional, common sense principles. Yep, I do. Yep, I'm straight. And yep, I'm a BLACK woman who thinks for herself. Deal with it. Just blows your mind, doesn't it? I'm not bothered by your delusion, just slightly amused at your "maturity." {{{YAWN}}}. God bless you with a healthy dose of Himself. :) Your emails will be deleted--not even interested in reading them. You're a fake--a weak one at that. Take care.
