From The Sound Live:
For the past few years of Obama’s Presidency, Dr. Cornell West and Tavis Smiley have been on what seems to be an ‘Anti-Obama’ tour across the world going from city to city trying to convince multitudes that Obama is not the one for the job. The latest complaint against Obama comes in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict as Cornell West proclaims that Obama is the global “George Zimmerman.”
From Democracy Now:
I think we have to acknowledge that President Obama has very little moral authority at this point, because we know anybody who tries to rationalize the killing of innocent peoples, a criminal—George Zimmerman is a criminal—but President Obama is a global George Zimmerman, because he tries to rationalize the killing of innocent children, 221 so far, in the name of self-defense, so that there’s actually parallels here.
He continues to mention that there are several countries that the President has committed this act in. West as well as Smiley had a mouth full to say about Obama’s speech on the Trayvon Martin Case as well, Smiley calling his speech “As weak as unsweetened kool aid.”
Twitter handled the situation.
