While speaking at a prayer vigil for victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, Barack Obama, ever the divisive political creature with a burning transformative agenda, could not pass on the opportunity to politicize the event:
In the coming weeks, I’ll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens, from law enforcement, to mental health professionals, to parents and educators, in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this, because what choice do we have? We can’t accept events like this as routine.
Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?
Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?
Forget about the shock, grief, anguish, pain and suffering of the survivors. Never mind that the vigil was intended to honor the innocent victims, not promote Obama’s ardent agenda to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”
Never let a crisis go to waste … ever.
And to think, there are still people who wonder why America is so divided.
Congratulations Barack … Saul Alinsky would be proud of you.
If Obama is truly devoted to preventing such tragedies, how about he cease and desist being the most divisive American political figure of the 21st century? Anyone who is paying attention knows he is leading a group of like-minded politicians whose strategy is “divide and conquer.”
If Obama is honestly concerned with preventing the routine slaughter of children in schools, schools will no longer be gun free zones. The criminally inclined, mentally deranged people who have perpetrated these shootings clearly have not respected these gun free zones, including America’s shopping malls and other public gathering places.
For “progressives” to use these tragedies as a thinly disguised attempt to alter or abolish Second Amendment Rights for free American Citizens is further evidence that they are attacking, not defending the Constitution of the United States of America. Why is it not surprising that those who desire a “fundamental transformation” of America would be derelict in their duties while ignoring their oath of office?
Here is a clue for Obama and his high falutin, fancy pants, smooth talking, words parsing “progressive” Ivy League chums: the Second Amendment was not written so 21st century Americans could go deer hunting.
America’s Constitution secured the Right of the People to keep and bear arms as the last line of defense against tyrannical government. Having just fought against and defeated King George’s military, America’s founders were keenly aware of the need for all Citizens to be prepared in defense of their Liberties. It matters not whether tyrannical government is imposed by a foreign crown as it was in the 1700s, or from Washington DC, as is being done today. Tyrannical government is tyrannical government.
As Patrick Henry said during debate in the Several State Conventions on the adoption of the U.S. Constitution:
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?
Barack Obama and his fellow “progressives” are not interested in defending the God given, constitutionally protected Rights of American Citizens. They are interested in ensuring that “progressives” gain a firm, final grasp on unstrained power.
America had better wise up. Fast.
Because of groupthink and a poverty of imagination, the story of American Freedom and of American exceptionalism may end far too soon in a tragic, final chapter.
