Let’s begin by saying that there is no such thing as ‘gun violence.’ A gun is an inanimate object that is incapable of inflicting any harm unless its trigger is pulled. Any violence done using a gun is violence on the part of a person who just so happened to make that gun their weapon of choice. Let’s stop using the left’s language that is meant to demonize all gun owners in their attack on our Second Amendment rights.
Next, contrary to what the race baiters and cop haters on the left have to say, not all police officers are bad. Police officers are not using black males as target practice in the street just for fun. They don’t wake up with the thought in their minds of which black person can I harass or kill today. That’s a sick narrative from the left-wing whackos who want to tear down society and create division among the people and law enforcement as a means of doing so.
But, like all professions, there are some bad apples in police departments. There are also some incredibly corrupt people in government who will do or say anything to remain in power, even going so far as to cover-up damning evidence that will make them look bad so that they can win re-election.
Enter, Rahm ‘Deadfish’ Emanuel — former adviser and former Chief of Staff to Barack Obama. Despite the thousands who have died in Obama’s adopted city of Chicago, the violent mecca where criminality reigns and criminals terrorize the city with violence with their weapon of choice often being a gun, where he rose to power and prominence as a community agitator, honing his race baiting and shakedown skills, Obama has rarely spoken of this violence.
No, the race baiter in chief is selective about his outrage, shedding crocodile tears when pushing his unconstitutional gun control as he lied to the American people that his illegal actions were consistent with the Second Amendment.
But, I digress.
For all his talk about the need to end ‘gun violence’ and statements that he loses it whenever he thinks of the children who died at Sandy Hook Elementary School when a man with a history of mental problems stole his mother’s guns, broke into a school and killed them (actions that would not have been stopped by gun control), Obama is feeding accusations that he cares not a lick about the death of black kids in Chicago, instead using the death of white children as a politically expedient tool to push his far-left, un-American, and unconstitutional agenda.
On Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Obama White House chief of staff Denis McDonough shared that Obama was very pleased with the work and actions of Emanuel, the very man who covered up the video of a police officer shooting Laquan McDonald, a 17-year old black boy, 16 times, to protect his re-election and political legacy.

According to Twitchy, the actual adulation and praise were even worse.
“The city looks great, the opportunities there are boundless. And so, I think what the President sees is a city and a people of Chicago and a mayor of Chicago that continue to do very good work.”
So, I guess to Obama, who wants us to believe that in the dirty cesspool of Chicago, he is the one politician who emerged as pure as the driven snow, believes Emanuel’s actions are a-okay.
Right. And if you believe that, I have a bridge I’d like to sell you.
This did not go unnoticed by the folks on Twitter who called Obama out on his blatant hypocrisy. (WARNING: Some of the language is NSFW.)

Just days after Obama’s push for gun control ‘if it will save even one life’ and ahead of his final State of the Union address, he praises a corrupt politician who hid a video of the death of a 17-year old because it would have damaged his re-election campaign.
That tells you everything you need to know about what Obama really believes and cares about.
Power, control, and protecting his friends.
