Dr. Cornel West made some harsh comparisons of President Obama on Monday for expanding a drone war he says is responsible for the murders of hundreds of children. “George Zimmerman is a criminal — but President Obama is a global George Zimmerman, because he tries to rationalize the killing of innocent children, 221 so far, in the name of self-defense, so that there’s actually parallels here,” he said.
