President Obama, operating on the theory that a crisis should never be allowed to go to waste, called for further gun control in memory of Trayvon Martin. Obama did not comment about the other young black men like Trayvon Martin who had been killed in Chicago where the Second Amendment is all but repealed.
The left continues to push the narrative that America is a racist nation, George Zimmerman was a crazed, racist wannabe cop and Trayvon Martin was an innocent child.
None of that is true.
Trayvon Martin was a product of American liberal social policies. A single mother raised him. His school was more concerned about appeasing the civil rights hucksters than whether Martin was educated and taught basic responsibilities.
The story of Martin’s life is not irrelevant. It is the major cause of what happened that night he encountered Zimmerman. The left has tried to demonize Zimmerman and has tried to canonize St. Trayvon.
