In an op-ed published by CNN on Monday, the mother of the late Trayvon Martin endorsed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Exploiting the death of her son, Sybrina Fulton pushes the anti-American narrative of the Black Lives Matter movement as a get-out-the-vote effort for Clinton.
The article was not entirely written by Fulton, given the inconsistency between its articulate composition and her poor language skills repeatedly displayed in public and media appearances. It was likely composed in coordination with operatives of the Clinton campaign and/or Democratic Party.
Denigrating America as a racist society hostile towards black people, Fulton asserts that many young people in “communities of color” fear their lives are threatened by overly aggressive policing animated by anti-black racial profiling. Clinton has expressed the same sentiment.
Parroting the misleading statistic of 33,000 Americans dying annually to the “epidemic of gun violence,” Fulton neglects to mention that two-thirds of these deaths are suicides. Clinton’s campaign website similarly pushes this statistic from the Center for Disease Control without mentioning the share of firearms-related deaths by suicide.
Echoing the messaging of the Clinton campaign framing the former first lady as simultaneously more electable than Senator Bernie Sanders and more aligned with President Barack Obama’s “gun control” agenda, Fulton warns that a Republican president will undo “everything Obama has done.” Clinton has recently criticized Sanders on these grounds, portraying the Vermont senator’s opposition to the Brady Bill as evidence of his insufficient commitment to curbing Second Amendment protections.
Implying that her son was murdered, Fulton says the criminal justice system allows for the killing of young black people simply walking home from the store. No mention is made of her late son’s violent assault of George Zimmerman playing any role in his death on the evening of February 26, 2012. Clinton has endorsed this same message as conveyed by the Black Lives Matter movement.
Seemingly calling for racial egalitarianism in the criminal sentencing, Fulton hypes “mass incarceration” as unfairly imprisoning too many blacks relative to whites. Clinton’s campaign website echoes this narrative, hinting at the implementation of race-based jurisprudence.
In November, Clinton met with the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, and Jordan Davis to further the racial agitation narrative advanced by the Black Lives Matter movement and furthered by left-wing media.
In August of 2014, Fulton traveled to Geneva, Switzerland, to indict America as a racist society in violation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination before the United Nations. Joining a left-wing coalition, she implored the U.N. to investigate American violations of this international treaty.
