Obama Blames Liberty

He says when it comes to guns, Liberty is the problem.

On Thursday, Barack Obama made his way to Orlando to grieve with those mourning the loss of loved ones in Sunday’s brutal Islamist attack. But let’s face it — Obama politicizes everything, and never more than when attending funerals for the victims of mass murder committed with a gun.

“The notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to the killer defies common sense,” Obama declared. “Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons should meet these families and explain why … it is that we think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies. That’s not the meaning of liberty.”

As if Obama, of all people, is the authority on defending Liberty. Quite the opposite. Obama is arguing that Liberty is the problem. If he were truly honest, he’d start pushing for gun confiscation and see what happened.

“They pleaded that we do more to stop the carnage,” he said later. “They don’t care about the politics. Neither do I.” Give us a break — this is all about politics for Obama. If he really wanted to stop Islamist attacks on U.S. soil, he’d pursue a different strategy against the Islamic State. But that’s not his goal. Indeed, he again denied the ties that the Orlando and San Bernardino attackers had to a larger movement and insisted they were “home-grown” and “deranged individuals.” Oh, and all this “hatred towards people because of sexual orientation” has got to stop, he lectured. Such stubborn denial of the real problem defines the Obama era.
