President Obama might have to call the terrorist attack a terrorist attack though he will never say it’s because of a radicalized version of Islam, but he will continue to call it gun violence as he did in his weekly address this week. It’s an excuse of course to put in more stringent gun measures. This is the man who talks of the Australian gun confiscation as something to be tried in the U.S.
Still unsure of the motive squarely smacking him in the face, he said, “We’re also learning more about the killers. And we’re working to get a full picture of their motives—why they committed these revolting acts. It is entirely possible that these two attackers were radicalized to commit this act of terror,” he said, adding that investigators must be allowed to complete their work.
There is obvious tension between the FBI and the White House on what to call it and Obama wants workplace violence to at least be in the equation though we have discovered there was no argument between Farooq and any of his colleagues.
“It is entirely possible that these two attackers were radicalized to commit this act of terror,” he said. Is he kidding, he thinks it’s “entirely possible”?
Obama likes to blame the climate but both of the San Bernardino killers were well-educated and Farooq had a good job. Malik was a pharmacist in Pakistan.
It’s not climate, it’s religious ideology, it’s not economic, it’s radical Islam.
It’s definitely not guns. Will we ban the bomb-making material they used, the remotes, the remote-controlled cars? What’s the background check going to be like?
Two of the terrorists’ guns were illegally converted into automatics. What law will he pass to stop terrorists from breaking the law?
The “military-style firearms” and “weapons of war” Obama talked about today are RIFLES. Talk about hyperbole.
He said, “We know that the killers in San Bernardino used military-style assault weapons—weapons of war—to kill as many people as they could. It’s another tragic reminder that here in America it’s way too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun.”
“Right now, people on the no-fly list can walk into a store and buy a gun. That is insane,” Mr. Obama said. “If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun. And so I’m calling on Congress to close this loophole, now. We may not be able to prevent every tragedy, but — at a bare minimum — we shouldn’t be making it so easy for potential terrorists or criminals to get their hands on a gun that they could use against Americans.”
Then why do we have 72 people working for the Department of Homeland Security on the watch list? The same list that intelligence sources describe as a “joke”?
It’s another distraction. If he wants to use that list, he needs to have it cleaned up and he needs to put in due process and not have people removed by imperial dictate.
Mr. Obama also called on the country to uphold its values, which administration officials have said do not include efforts to discriminate against or demonize Muslims.
Who is demonizing Muslims??? What is he talking about and will someone stop this Marxist from telling us what our values are?
Loretta Lynch is going to prosecute people who engage in violence-provoking hate speech against Muslims though it is not the law and when it’s Black Lives Matter, she doesn’t give two hoots.
We cannot accept mass shootings like this one as routine in our country, Obama declared, and emphasized that above all else, his priority is the safety and security of the American people.
This wasn’t gun violence, this was a TERROR ATTACK.
