UPDATE 2: All about securing his legacy and infringing upon the Second Amendment rights of Americans, Barack Obama took to his bully pulpit to blame last night’s church shooting in Charleston on guns.
President Obama emerged for a brief statement on the Charleston church shooting today, stressing that “this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries” and “we as a country will have to reckon with the fact.”
“It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency,” he said in the White House briefing room with Vice President Joe Biden at his side….
As usual, Obama talking loud and saying nothing, with Joe Biden by his side looking as if he’s going to burst out laughing any moment, failed to mention that crime is rampant in those countries where firearms have been banned leaving the innocent defenseless and at the mercy, correction lack thereof of thugs.
True to form, when tragedy strikes the heart of Americans, as in the case of the Benghazi Islamic terrorist attacks that resulted in the death of four Americans and the beheading of American journalist, James Holt, Obama rolls out his dog and pony, for good measure, pretends to shed a tear, plays the blame game and then jets off to the business of Obama, i.e., campaigning, fundraising and/or golfing. In this instance, it’s two days of fundraising with fellow elitists in California. All while a nation has yet to come to grip with the latest tragedy.
UPDATE 1: Dylann Roof, the suspected gunman in Wednesday night’s shooting spree of the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston was apprehended this morning in Shelby, North Carolina.
According to CNN, witnesses are alleging that Roof who is Caucasian stood up in the church and stated that he was there to shoot Black people. True or false, the facts as they actually unfolded has yet to be laid out.
Bear in mind the so-called eye witnesses to the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri last summer, alleging that Brown’s hands were up when shot by St. Louis Police Officer, Darren Wilson. Those claims were later proven to be false.
Dylann Roof, 21, of Lexington, South Carolina, was taken into custody without incident about 11:15 a.m. during a traffic stop, Charleston police Chief Greg Mullen said Thursday morning. He said local police were acting on a BOLO (be-on-the-lookout) notice that included a vehicle description, the license tag and the suspect’s name….
Never letting a crisis go to waste, Progressives not waiting for the facts yet again are laying the blame on white privilege, Republicans, etc. ignoring the fact that Roof who appears to be an anarchist is one of theirs.
All these pro-Obama leftists online whining about white supremacy need to take a good look in the mirror and face the logical outgrowth of their decades-long ideological agitation and hatred. From 1960s-era racial segregation to modern racist, Israel-bashing ideological extremism, the dude Roof is perfectly at home on the far-left of the political spectrum. He’s a product of the left. He’s a Democrat terrorist, just like the Klan terrorists of the Democrat Party South.
In what can only be described as evil, a 21 year old gunman went on a shooting spree during a prayer meeting at a Charleston, SC church killing nine people last night.
South Carolina police are hunting Dylann Roof in the deadly shooting Wednesday night at a Charleston church that left nine people dead, authorities announced as they identified the 21-year-old as the gunman.
Police immediately branded the shooting spree, which began just after 9 p.m. Wednesday, a hate crime, and released surveillance images of a white man fleeing the scene at 180-year-old Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church after the horrific incident, which left six women and three men dead….
Among those killed is the church’s pastor, state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, age 41. The names of the others killed, three males and six females, have not yet been released.
A five year old boy survived by playing dead as instructed by his grandmother.
While the shootings have been labeled a hate crime based on race by the usual suspects including the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division and FBI who have opened an investigation, that has yet to be determined.
