With apologies to villainous, cretinous bags of scum.
Giving voice to intense heartache, anger and sadness, President Barack Obama said Thursday the South Carolina church shooting that left nine people dead shows the need for a national reckoning on gun violence.
Obama, who knew the pastor killed in the Charleston attack, said he has been called upon too often to mourn the deaths of innocents killed by those “who had no trouble getting their hands on a gun.”
“Now is the time for mourning and for healing,” the president said. “But let’s be clear. At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency. And it is in our power to do something about it.”
True enough, if you don’t count England, Australia, Canada, France, Belgium, Germany, France, Norway, France, and Denmark, among others–almost all of whom, as Ace notes, “have adopted sensible, pragmatic Total Gun Bans.” He also includes links with that list, which I won’t bother transcribing here. Suffice it to say that this vicious, petty, calculating little pig (Obama, not Ace) simply could not wait to climb up on the coffins of the Charleston dead to start thumping his scrawny chest and pimping for one of the Left’s perennial pet projects. Of course, and as usual. We all know the tired routine of the classless, clueless hard-Left ghouls by now.
What a revolting, pissy little “man.” What a diseased mind he possesses. What a priggish little scold he is. It’s nothing less than a national disgrace that enough of our so-called countrymen were gullible enough to allow themselves to be duped into “electing” such an irredeemable scoundrel to high office. A bunch of decent people murdered by a random psycho, and his first thought is of advancing his liberal-fascist political agenda? THE ONE FUCKING TIME a hideous act of mass murder is actually committed by a true “lone wolf,” in the doublespeaking parlance of our joke of a national leadership and its hamfisted “security” apparatus, and since he’s not a Muslim they fall all over themselves to make a “larger issue” out of the infamy?
Obama ought to be tarred, feathered, and dropped off at an airport with a one-way ticket to Zimbabwe or Yemen or some such, where he can live out his days squatting in a tarpaper shack, scratching at fleas and muttering to himself about how awful this country is, and forbidden ever to even attempt to return to these shores on pain of summary and immediate execution.
As for his “in our power” demagoguery, I have only one thing to say: come and take them, you slimy son of a bitch. Charles Cooke allows himself to be bogged down in minutiae, making an argument that, while true enough empirically, avoids addressing the real issue:
The million dollar question, though, is, “Do what?” It is all very well to criticize the National Rifle Association and the Republican party for opposing further gun control, and yet it remains an inconvenient truth that not one of the reforms that the Democratic party proposed the last time it ventured into this debate would have changed the outcome here.
Back in 2013, when the country was still reeling from the abomination at Sandy Hook, President Obama hoped to achieve three things: 1) He hoped to ban so-called “assault weapons”; 2) he hoped to limit the size of commercially available magazines; and 3) he hoped to force all the states to require background checks when a firearm is privately transferred. Because the killer used a pistol with a regular magazine, the first two of these proposals are irrelevant here. Per Reuters, the shooter’s “father gave him a .45-caliber pistol for his birthday this year.” That pistol would not have fallen under any of the “assault weapons” bans that were proposed by Obama and his allies in Congress. Moreover, magazine capacity does not seem to have been an issue. The New York Times reports that the shooter took his time, stopping to talk and “[reloading] five times.” Had he been limited by law to ten rounds per magazine — as Dianne Feinstein would have liked — he would have been in no worse a position. (Most .45s come with magazines that hold seven, eight, or nine rounds.)
None of which matters a whit, because none of those things are what Obama (spit) and his fellow gun-grabbing hyenas are really after. They want guns banned and confiscated, the Second Amendment repealed, our God-given natural right to self-defense not only from individual assailants but from a tyrannical government gutted. They are not amenable to reason, as their position is not based on reason and is therefore wholly immune to it. And they will never, ever stop.
I repeat: come and take them, you bastards.
None of this can possibly come as a surprise to anyone by now; Obama remains exactly what he always has been: a repellent, dishonest, gutless, conniving, extreme-Left douchebag. And half the damned country still loves him–not despite all that, but because of it. If you want a close look at our real problem, well, right there it is. I remain completely flummoxed as to what might be done to rectify that, or if there’s even anything that can be done.
