With early voting numbers showing soft turnout by black voters, Hillary Clinton is resorting to desperate measures to scare out the vote.
Namely, she now accuses Americans who support gun ownership, like you, of conspiring to kill Trayvon Martin.
Martin’s death touched off a national controversy, and acts of violence, after he was killed in self-defense while attacking neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
But in a campaign speech Monday in Sanford, Florida, where the incident occurred, Clinton invoked Martin’s death and said American gun owners must be reined in and held responsible for the death.
Specifically, Clinton said American gun owners killed Martin by opposing gun control — without explaining how a lack of gun control caused Martin to assault Zimmerman.
“I cannot come to Sanford without talking about Trayvon Martin,” Clinton said. “It’s heartbreaking that this young man all he did was go to a corner store, bought a pack of Skittles and walked back home in the rain. And his life was cut short.”
In reality, Martin stalked and assaulted Zimmerman, who fired in self-defense.
Clinton also compared you to a terrorist and called you racist.
“When I think about keeping Americans safe, obviously I think about terrorism,” Clinton said. “But I also want to protect Americans from the epidemic of gun violence that is stalking our country.”
Referring to millions of American gun owners as “the gun lobby,” Clinton vowed to steamroll the Constitution and enforce — by any means necessary — even if it means accusing Americans of being racist.
“We have a moral obligation to reduce gun violence and that will require us to stand up against systemic racism and promote justice and equality and criminal justice reform,” Clinton said.
She then used Martin’s death to argue for laws banning Americans from owning popular guns, despite the fact law enforcement officials and a jury ruled the death was justified on account of the fact Martin was attempting to kill Zimmerman.
