Buchanan blasts Obama for refusing to take a stand against Zimmerman verdict violence

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Sean Hannity’s radio show, conservative commentator and author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” Pat Buchanan Buchanan criticized President Obama’s Department of Justice for failing to stand against public violence after Saturday’s verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman.

“What is taking place now, Sean, is not the prosecution of George Zimmerman,” Buchanan said. “That’s over. He was found ‘not guilty’ on all counts. He was found innocent on all counts. What’s taking place now is the persecution of George Zimmerman. This man has his life threatened. He is hiding. His family is being threatened. The Justice Department is threatening him with a second trial on the basis of what, a bunch of demonstrations and howls? This is not what is supposed to happen in America.”


But Buchanan was particular harsh on President Barack Obama. He pointed to Obama’s rising to the occasion after the shooting of then-Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabriel Giffords in 2010. But he said Obama hasn’t stood up in this case.
