President Barack Obama is going out just the way he came in. Nearly nine years after mocking “bitter” Americans who “cling to guns or religion,” he’d like to remind us that prayer will not help save our country from gun violence.
He seems to be quite the authority as his liberal policies have done such a great job of protecting us these past eight years.
No longer content to pay lip service to Christians who believe in the saving grace of God for our country, Obama is taking any parting shots he can. His column last week in the Harvard Law Review reiterated his anti-Christian sentiment when he wrote, “Our thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have a responsibility to act.”
Meaning, of course, gun control. Obama’s implication is that praying, God-trusting Americans who defend their right of gun ownership are not on board with keeping guns out of the hands of criminals.
In 2008, Obama drew a vivid picture of working-class America while on the campaign trail.
“It’s not surprising that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations,” Huffington Post reported.
The most telling thing about this comment is that it was made about the Midwest to a group of wealthy California donors. Obama picked just the right liberal, ivory-tower audience to paint conservative, Christian Americans as gun-loving, racist, xenophobic nutjobs.
Obama’s smug, us-or-them mentality is what got us here. FBI background checks for gun purchases are at a record high, according to CNN, and they directly correspond to large-scale gun violence attacks.
In other words, a lack of background checks is not the problem. Crime is the problem.
Nevertheless, in his Law Review commentary, Obama called for expanded background checks. He failed to note, and the media often fail to report, that legally obtained weapons, complete with background checks, are often the weapon of choice for mass killers, according to Breitbart.
Among a very long list of examples are Orlando, San Bernadino, Charleston, Fort Hood, Aurora and Virginia Tech. All legal weapons, all legally purchased, all background checked.
Legal weapons, bought by people obeying the law, is not the problem. We have all the gun control we need. Where Obama’s liberal policies failed miserably was in crime control.
Americans have had enough of being bashed for conservative values. This is why we didn’t vote for Obama’s party in 2016.
