Obama doesn’t have anything to say about this eco-terrorist: “The hostage situation at the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, Md., ended Wednesday with police taking the life of the apparent gunman, James L. Lee. This unhinged individual, inspired by the ideas of environmental extremists, believed that by terrorizing employees at the television network he would spark a change that would ultimately “save the planet.”… Heavily influenced by Al Gore’s apocalyptic film “An Inconvenient Truth,” Lee saw mankind itself as the biggest threat to planetary survival. Lee logically concluded that reducing the number of human beings represented the only certain means of ending that threat.”
The only thing Obama would like to announce is that Americans should be on the lookout for “right-wing extremists.”
Update: Obama also doesn’t have anything to say about this racist threat of violence: “Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told thousands of followers Sunday he was planning to reach out to gang leaders to help “protect” the Nation of Islam… Farrakhan, 79, renewed the call for African Americans to pool money and buy as much land as possible… In addition to sending letters to black military leaders, Farrakhan said he planned to contact the city’s gang leaders to recruit gang members to “protect” any land the Nation of Islam might buy in the future… Farrakhan said gangbangers are “natural soldiers” and could be taught “the science of war” to become protectors of the Nation of Islam’s assets in the future.” But this isn’t surprising– Obama also supported the violent “Occupy Wall Street” movement while decrying the peaceful Tea Party Movement, and refused to denounce violent rhetoric against Republicans.
A few days ago, America was heartbroken by the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre– and Obama– for the first time– displayed real emotion, which was appreciated by Americans on both sides of the political aisle. However, the national discussion has been contorted by devious political hacks. The loudest response has been from Americans– both left and right– who have chosen to take ‘the easy way out’ of addressing the real problem.
The truth is that our society needs good people to have guns. It shouldn’t be optional– it should be mandatory for trained, armed “good guys” to protect public places. What would have happened if the Clackamas mall shooter hadn’t been confronted by an armed shopper? How many more Sandy Hook Elementary students would have been killed if first responders had arrived on scene only a minute later than they did? We find gun control in the most oppressive dictatorships on Earth– Iran, Syria, North Korea, etc.– regimes that over-power the people with weaponry. There was gun control in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, which rounded up dissidents and ‘undesirables’ before killing them. Guns are illegal in Mexico– the result is that the public lives at the mercy of trained, armed “bad guys” who can rely on the black market for guns. As American patriot George Mason stated: “To disarm the people [is] the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
Fostering training and gun ownership for “good guys” isn’t enough– we also need tighter gun control laws to prevent gun ownership by irresponsible people or “bad guys.” The Sandy Hook shooter’s mother, Nancy Lanza, took her son to shooting ranges despite knowing that he was disturbed— she was so irresponsible that she should not have been permitted to own a gun. Apparently, U.S. gun control laws are even inadequate to prevent mentally ill people from buying guns legally themselves– a mentally ill person legally bought his guns and shot up an Aurora movie theater this year. The enforcement of U.S. gun control laws is also inadequate. Having a black market for guns is bad enough– what’s worse is a stupid decision by the Obama Administration to purposefully sell thousands of semi-automatic firearms to criminals with links to Mexican drug cartels.
The Obama Administration has failed on gun policy. Beside the Fast and Furious scandal, it turns out that the Obama Administration “quietly let federal funding for several key school security programs lapse in the name of budget savings… two Justice Department programs that had provided more than $200 million to schools for training, security equipment and police resources over the last decade weren’t renewed in 2011 and 2012… a separate program that provided $800 million to put police officers inside the schools was ended a few years earlier… [and the Obama Administration] eliminated the Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) funding, which for years provided between $20 million and $30 million in annual grants to help schools create emergency and crisis preparation and prevention plans for tragedies.” Obama wasn’t willing to stop government spending for pet projects and perks for his political supporters– instead, he made the disgraceful decision to cut school security programs.
Meanwhile, a Democrat member of Congress– a political hack from New York named Jerrold Nadler– has expressed his callous opinion that Obama should “exploit” the Sandy Hook tragedy in order to legislate against the Second Amendment of the Constitution. Previously, Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he wants to “brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.” These aren’t solutions– they’re detestable plans to use a tragedy to advance a political agenda.
Update: Sadly, the Obama Administration is continuing to use the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy to advance its political agenda: A mass “Obama for America” e-mail sent to Obama supporters by his chief campaign advisor David Axelrod “urges supporters to watch President Obama’s moving address to the community of Newtown” WHILE soliciting donations for Obama during his second term as President. As another blogger pointed out, the mass e-mail contained “two buttons – two opportunities to donate to the Obama campaign. Not to the Red Cross, or to a memorial fund for the children and adults killed in Newtown.”
In the 3rd Presidential Debate, Obama said: “I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military’s changed.” Actually, the military still uses horses and bayonets (which were even used during the invasion of Afghanistan)– in fact, bayonets are standard use for Marines! Obama has been rude, patronizing, mocking, and insulting to his opponent throughout this campaign.
Obama is so out-of-control that he referenced stage-three cancer in attacking Romney, saying that Romney has “at least stage-three Romnesia.” Obama also gave a Rolling Stone magazine interview in which he called Romney a “bullshitter.”
On Obama’s “official home on Tumblr” (http://barackobama.tumblr.com/post/34165736532/sums-it-up) this belitting image of Romney in a dunce hat was posted:
This image shows the nature of Obama’s campaign; and it is yet another example of how divisive the Obama Administration has been during the past 4 years. In contrast, Romney worked across the aisle in a bipartisan manner with an 87% Democratic Party legislature while he was governor of Massachusetts.
