Barack Obama is a ghoulish vulture. He waits and seethes with hatred for the traditions, laws and values that have made America great. He waits for crises to exploit and since regaining the Oval Office in 2012, he has become unspeakably bold in his demonstration for his distaste for America.
Nowhere is this hatred more evident than in his conduct in the days after tragedy. After Sandy Hook, he shamefully exploited national grief to attempt to undermine our most-fundamental liberties by urging the passage of unconstitutional laws to undermine the Second Amendment.
His efforts failed. When they failed, he used his magic pen and phone to enact unconstitutional laws via executive fiat.
His habit of parading victims before the media is obscene. He opportunistically exploits grief and insists that Americans have a duty to usurp the Second Amendment to honor the victims of the latest shooting.
After my hometown of Roseburg, Oregon, was attacked by a gunman, I joined thousands of others to meet Obama as he came to town to remind him that he was not welcomed in our community.
In the aftermath of the worst terrorist attack in America since 9/11, Obama and Vice President Biden traveled to Orlando under the guise of “paying respects,” but exploiting the community’s grief to advance a call for anti-Second Amendment efforts.
“Today, once again, as has been true too many times before, I held and hugged grieving family members and parents and they asked ‘Why does this keep happening.’ And they pleaded that we do more to stop the carnage. They don’t care about the politics, and neither do I,” Obama said.
White House Propaganda Minister Josh Earnest claimed that Obama felt that visiting Orlando was his “solemn responsibility,” and a “tangible example” of the president standing in solidarity with victims of this tragedy.
That might have been believable if Obama had not spent nearly the entirety of his trip to Orlando lashing-out at those who oppose eroding the Second Amendment.
“Those who were killed and injured here were gunned down by a single killer with a powerful assault weapon. The motives of this killer may have been different than the mass killers in Aurora, or Newtown, but the instruments of death were so similar,” Obama said.
The motives Obama avoided detailing were Islam-inspired. As Obama despises individual firearm ownership and works diligently to defend Islam from critics, it makes sense that avoiding condemning radical Islam is paired with condemning constitutional defenders who oppose gun control.
“Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons, should meet these families and explain why that makes sense….Why is it they think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies? That’s not the meaning of liberty,” he said.
Obama also attempted to make a connection between the Toomey-Manchin bill and the Orlando attack.
“I hope that Senators who voted ‘no’ on background checks after Newtown have a change of heart. And then I hope the House does the right thing and helps to end the plague of violence that these weapons of war inflict on so many young lives.”
Of course, one has absolutely nothing to do with the other. The bill referenced would have required a private sellers to conduct background checks.
Omar Mateen, the Orlando terrorist, not only underwent background checks to obtain his weapons, but was granted a high level of security clearance and his background was thoroughly investigated. It is literally impossible that the aforementioned bill would have affected Mateen’s ability to obtain his weapons.
Finally, Obama double-dog-dared Congress to pass gun control legislation by claiming that those who do not don’t care about the victims of this tragedy.
“If we don’t act, we will keep seeing more massacres like this, because we will be choosing to allow them to happen. We will be saying we don’t care enough to do something about it.”
Barack Obama is a divisive, shameless disgrace to the office and his tenure as executive will be remembered as one of the darkest periods of our republic.
