Conservative Website Slams Obama for Remarks About Racism

“Nobody should be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, who they love, how they worship,” President Obama declared Monday night.

He was reacting to last week’s church massacre in South Carolina and other recent acts of violence, Breitbart News reported. “We stand united against these hateful acts,” he said.

“When our values are threatened, we come together as one nation. When three young Muslim-Americans were brutally murdered in Chapel Hill earlier this year, Americans of all faiths rallied around that community.”

In an editorial, Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro criticized Obama for making “no mention of anti-Semitic crimes” or “the worldwide Islamist problem.” He wrote: “Never mind that the police say the slaying of three young Muslims in North Carolina wasn’t a hate crime, but an argument over parking. The left insists that the killings represent America’s brutality toward Muslims, and no fact pattern will be allowed to demonstrate otherwise.”

Shapiro added: “President Obama’s decision to label a crime a hate crime, without any supporting evidence, follows hard on Obama’s decision to label America a continuing horror show of racism over the weekend.”

He was referring to a radio interview during which the president addressed the ongoing issue of bigotry in the United States.
