President Barack Obama turned the Dallas police massacre into a political weapon, just as he has baldly used numerous other tragedies for political gain. Only hours after speaking to the nation about the attacks in a relatively presidential manner, he stated- upon landing in Warsaw- that “When people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately it makes it more deadly and more tragic.
And in the days ahead we are going to have to consider those realities as well.”
It is not about powerful firearms, Mr. President. The shooter repeatedly stated that he “wanted to kill white people.” The “powerful weapons” that pose the problem, the weapons that are most deadly and tragic, are ignorance and unfounded hatred. When people are armed with those weapons, society starts to unravel, no matter what kind of physical weapons perpetrators may be using.
It is no coincidence that, in the couple of decades prior to this past year or so, violent crime rates plummeted across the country as the number of folks with conceal-carry licenses sky-rocketed. Since the president, Black Lives Matter, and other leftist groups have gone out of their way to sow envy, disinformation, racial division and radicalism over the recent past, attacks on police and violent crimes in general are rising in big cities around the country. This is leading to police forces being put in a lose-lose situation. As a result, they simply aren’t policing in some major metropolitan urban areas. This leads to thugs- and worse- getting bolder and bolder and will also lead to fewer and fewer police recruits.
The results will not be good.
It is amazing that given the thousands of people killed in this country recently by radical Islamists, and the hundreds of other radical Islamist terror plots foiled, the President will not even use the term. Yet he tirelessly spits out the terms “white privilege” and “gun problem” like a pez dispenser run amok.
