Hillary Clinton’s views on the death of Trayvon Martin compared to how she apparently sees the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi makes for an interesting juxtaposition. The Obama administration’s Justice Department conspired to gin up animus toward George Zimmerman, the man who killed Martin. Minority communities demanded justice; the New Black Panthers put a bounty on Zimmerman’s head without repercussions. In the minds of many, no trial was needed; Zimmerman was guilty.
A year later, a trial took place. Evidence was heard, witnesses were called, and a verdict was rendered by a jury. While those hoping for a conviction were disappointed, none of them can say none of that happened. Zimmerman’s side was required to produce all the evidence it could to prevent their client from going away for a long time.
Conversely, when it comes to four Americans murdered and others badly injured in Benghazi, evidence is hidden behind stonewalls, witnesses are intimidated or suppressed, there’s been no verdict because there’s been no fair hearing, and those responsible have not been brought to justice.
After the Zimmerman verdict, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke of “heartache” in front of a black sorority group at the annual convention of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority convention. The vast majority of those in the crowd didn’t know Trayvon Martin personally. Yet, Hillary empathized with them as if they all had.
When it came to Benghazi, Hillary publicly and indignantly told those closest to the deceased victims in Benghazi that the reasons behind their deaths didn’t matter.
