AFL-CIO Executive Blames Conservatives for Trayvon Martin’s Shooting Death (Video)

AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt Baker blamed “conservative, right-wing policies” for Trayvon Martin‘s death.

The DC reported:

AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt Baker told The Daily Caller that it is “conservative, right-wing policies that are to blame” for Trayvon Martin‘s death.

Martin was a black teenager shot and killed by an Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer. The shooting, and the police department’s decision to not arrest the suspect, George Zimmerman, has caused an uproar in Florida and across the country. (RELATED: Full coverage of the Trayvon Martin shooting)

“The same folks who want to kill workers’ rights in the work place are the same folks who want to kill voters’ votes … and now they are literally supporting legislation that is literally killing our children.”

Baker told TheDC that conservative policies, like Florida’s “stand your ground” law — which states that an individual has the right to defend himself if he feels that his life is in imminent danger — are to blame.

George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon, is a registered Democrat.

    Hey, when you don’t have to prove anything, and when the MSM NEVER puts you to the proof, you can make any claim.

  • driguana

    Of course they do…no one ever challenges their viewpoints let alone their intelligence.

    Baker told TheDC that conservative policies, like Florida’s “stand your ground” law — which states that an individual has the right to defend himself if he feels that his life is in imminent danger — are to blame.

    That’s right. To hell with protecting yourself. Zimmerman should have just lain there and let that piece of scum Trayvon kill him. Than all would have been right with the world.

    Lady, you are just one, of many, disgusting examples of what is wrong with your “people.”

  • Tim in Cali

    How stoned do these people get, during their liquid lunch ?..Always remember that Liberals are stupid,it saves me so much time …

  • Bad Actor

    My first reaction was, “Is she nuts?”, but in reality, this is the way liberals think. They can’t blame Zimmerman anymore because he’s one of them – so, it must have been those horrible constitution-loving conservatives! Yeah, that’s the ticket! That’s what will turn out the democrat vote in November! They don’t care one bit about Trayvon Martin’s family….all they care about is ‘how can we spin this for our side?’ The dems are truly disgusting.

  • Valerie

    Ok, so where’s the reporter to ask “What do you mean by that?” and then let her rattle on. Keep asking the questions, and then let them talk.

  • so i guess its the left-wing ‘s liberal policies that are responsible for all those whites murdered by blacks and the 19 out of 20 blacks murdered by other blacks.

    liberal america must really believe that there is some political advantage to be gained by this story.

  • democraps suck

    NO!!!! I blame Treyvon™ trying to be the ghetto thug he was trying to be..why were the 12 pieces of women’s jewelry in his back pack…why were there tools to rogb cars etc in his back pack…why was there pot residue in his back pack… why did he get suspended from school for all those…why were they not investigated then…come on you liberal morons stop trying to make this a race issue and lets call a spade a spade…no pun intended…he got what he deserved…

  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs
  • nana

    they’re really now glued and stuck on stupid, can’t fix stupid.

  • forest

    It’s an honor to be hated by these malignant parasites.

  • What she’s saying here folks,is that whitey shouldn’t be able to defend themselves from the thugs .Zimmerman should have laid there and let Martin keep banging his head against the side-walk no matter if he killed him…

  • Ella

    When democraps are killing democraps we ought to stay the heck out of it.

  • squeaky

    all the obama surrogates keeping the storyline alive while allowing obama and his campaign to take a seat in the shadows. [Top Democrats — including President Barack Obama’s re-election team — are now keeping their distance from the Trayvon Martin uproar, as each day reveals more facts about the teen’s slaying. “As more facts come out, it’s more confusing for folks,” Sharon Gilpin, a Democratic political consultant, told The Daily Caller.] all the usual characters churning the chaos while obama will attempt to appear to be taking the high road and pointing his bony finger in the direction of the repubs accusing them of using the incident for political benefit.

  • Highlander

    So does that mean we can blame liberal left-wingers for all the white people who have been murdered?

  • Patty

    Baker told TheDC that conservative policies, like Florida’s “stand your ground” law — which states that an individual has the right to defend himself if he feels that his life is in imminent danger — are to blame.

    This is for Baker, the vote for law was 30 yeas and 0 nays.

    So, change it but Baker can not tell me that this shooting is because of Republicans.

    Then this? “The same folks who want to kill workers’ rights in the work place are the same folks who want to kill voters’ votes … and now they are literally supporting legislation that is literally killing our children.”

    The RNC needs to demand an apology, seems Baker and Obama have meeting of the minds. Where does this nasty language come from.

    3,315 Babies Are Killed Each Day In America

    http://deliveredbygrace.com/?p=202 This is your President World. And I do wish that the AFL-CIO is investigated for the lies and the insinuations about the Republican Party.

    I wish Breitbart was here, he would get on this right away. I am sick and tire of the irresponsible statements and lies by these radicals who are in High places? How do they become so high and mighty while spewing hate.

  • Tom in CA

    Of course you are Arlene, we wouldn’t expect much different.

    Kill workers? Killing Kids?

    3,315 Babies Are Killed Each Day In America

    http://deliveredbygrace.com/?p=202 I beg your pardon, little missy. Obama voted for partial birth abortion and botched abortion with no ASSISTANCE. AND SHE HAS THE AUDACITY TO MAKE THESE STATEMENTS WITH A STRAIGHT FACE??

    She is full of yourself. She is another perfect example of the hate and idiocy that is rolling like slime throughout this nation. Keep it up, more ammunition for the Right.

  • squeaky

    “..whitey shouldn’t be able to defend themselves from the thugs .Zimmerman should have laid there and..” that is an issue that draws blank stares. we had an issue with a perp attempting to take the cops gun [didn’t end in a death] and the concern was more on a perp roughed up than a perp acting stupidly. and all this criticism coming from people who couldn’t honestly tell you that they would do anything different themselves in a similiar situation. a limited one thought person in a competitive thought world.

    How do you all like this link that shows the AFL-CIO is asking Romney to fire a guy on his team that has insider knowledge of their operation:

    Can you imagine Romney being too concerned about this?

    Little ACORN’S DROPPING IN TO VISIT OBAMA

    White House visitor Fletcher is the former head organizer for ACORN in Minnesota. He is now executive director of Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (MNNOC), another new ACORN front group. MNNOC denies any connection to ACORN but the facts suggest otherwise.

    According to Judicial Watch research, MNNOC’s chairman of the board is Sunday Alabi. Alabi, who has been involved with ACORN since at least 2000, was also a member of the board of directors of ACORN-affiliated Citizens Services Inc., the company the Obama campaign paid $832,598 to 2008 to work against then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    Billie Jean Campbell, who was co-chairman of East St. Paul ACORN, and Steve Nelson, who was the Minneapolis northside ACORN chapter leader, are members of MNNOC’s board. Peter Molenaar, who was Minnesota ACORN chairman, and Sherman Wilburn, who was Minnesota ACORN board chairman, are MNNOC officers.

    White House visitor Dingerson worked as a community organizer with ACORN between 1978 and 1982.

    White House visitor Moore, who is director of Communities for Excellent Public Schools, does not appear to be affiliated with ACORN. She was, however, deputy director at Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ), a network of Saul Alinsky-inspired activist groups. When IWJ was created in 1996, Roman Catholic Monsignor John J. “Jack” Egan was on the founding board of directors. The socialist priest, who died in 2001, worked closely with Rules for Radicals author Alinsky, who died in 1972. IWJ founder Kim Bobo was a trainer for the Midwest Academy, a school for training radical community organizers. IWF has close ties to the AFL-CIO. Arlene Holt-Baker, executive vice president of AFL-CIO, is on the IWF board.

    It is unclear what the seven visitors discussed with Pope, but it seems a safe bet that the Motor-Voter law came up.

    And we kill babies? Oh, Dear God, what evidence and proof of the hypocrisy and yet, they glob onto to this one shooting.

    Remember, Barack Hussein Obama stated publically he thinks his own black grandchildren from his own two daughters, who would look like him, would be BURDENS.

  • noah

    Hey Arlene it’s your people in the HOOD with the illegal guns and the gangster up bringing, killing your kids.. Not the Right… this is the left way of trying to gun rights taken away from law abiding people so that only those with illegal guns like people in Trayvons neighborhood can freely and with the support of our president take down Whitey….

  • squeaky

    arlene’s just doing obama’s heavy lifting.

  • Arlene Holt Baker is a left-wing piece of racist trash.

  • She’s making sense actually. The evidence indicates that Trayvon was attempting to commit murder when he was shot. If it were not for “conservative” laws respecting the right to keep and bear arms he would have succeeded in committing murder and would not have been shot by his intended victim.

  • she is a major union leader. any wonder people have to be forced to join them.

    Millions and millions of babies, black, white, asian and hispanic murdered by the left via abortion in the USA and she claims the right is killing children.. Give me a break you hypocrite..

  • Texas_Treeroach

    The Unions want one thing and one thing only: POWER.
    They don’t care how many dead bodies they have to climb on;
    How deeply they manipulate and wound their own members, black and white.
    How much money they must appropriate or steal;
    How many State Laws and Constitutions they must circumvent.

    They will march hand in hand with this President in an attempt to destroy the United States. Both have become the scourge of this Country; and they both blight its history.

  • atticcellar

    I live in a medium size Wisconsin city (100,000+). Our population has a small percent of blacks (maybe 5% to 10%) yet nearly all the violent crimes commited are by black youth (at least 90%).. Recently the state has enacted a concealed carry law.. Thanks you Gov Walker for enabling us to walk down the street with some sense of safty against these thugs.. He should be running for president.. He would reveal the other so called conservative candidates for what they are, SOCIALIST.. The left is throwing millions of dollars to get rid of Walker.. Non stop ads paid for by big unions.. This battle is for our very liberty and shoud recieve the unwavering finacial support of the nations conservatives as the left has organized nationally to oust him.. The battlegound nationally is WISCONSIN!..

  • Annoyed In Illinois

    If there’s one thing that really grinds my gears, it’s when some pointy-faced White female with a microphone stands there and continually nods her f***ing head for four minutes as this pile of black hate spews forth lies and distortions.

    Someday this clueless White female will learn – and I sincerely hope it’s not violently – of the mortal dangers posed by Baker and those of her ilk.

  • brian

    With the media frenzy in full swing over the murder of Trayvon, many celebrities and lawmakers have taken to wearing hoodies to show support.

    We recently; found some VERY unlikely supporters of the cause that shows you just how huge this story has gotten . (WARNING! If you don’t have a sense of humor, don’t look)

    Oh yeah and a white guy who hates certain black people tries to discover if he is racist or not.(fun right?)
