The Orlando Massacre and Another Gun Control Diatribe by President Obama
Another horrific terrorist attack in the name of Allah – this time on the , a gay nightclub in Orlando. 49 victims died and 53 were wounded. The President made statements yesterday and today on the tragedy. He acknowledged it was a terrorist act, an act of “homegrown terrorism” He stressed that while the assailant might have been inspired by extremist information on the internet, but that there was “no evidence so far that he was in fact directed by ISIL. And there is no direct evidence that he was part of a larger plot.” The Orlando attack, the homegrown attack, is part of the ISIS plan to attack the West by inspiring local militants through the internet. It’s been working. The President continued by going off on his usual anti-gun diatribe, albeit he did not mention the NRA by name. He asked a rhetorical question: “This massacre is a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or a nightclub. And we have to decide if that is the kind of country we want to be.” He’s asking America to change on gun control, but he will not change on Radical Islamic Terrorism. Here’s what we need to know about the NRA. The NRA did not fly the planes into the Twin Towers on 9/11 The NRA did not mount the Benghazi attack, killing the American Ambassador to Libya on 9/11 The NRA did not bomb the World Trade center in 1993 The Underwear Bomber was not acting on behalf of the NRA The Times Square Bomber was not acting on behalf of the NRA The Tsarnaev Brothers, the Boston Marathon Bombers, were not NRA The NRA did not shoot up two Chattanooga military facilities, killing 4 Maines and a sailor Nor did the NRA do a drive-by shooting of a Little Rock Recruiting Station, killing one soldier and wounding a second Rizwan Farook and and Tashfeen Malik, husband and wife, were not acting on behalf of the NRA in San Bernardino in killing 14 and severely injuring 22. The NRA was not the Charlie Hebdo shooters, who killed 11 and wounded 11 in Paris The NRA did not orchestrate the November Paris attacks on the theatre and stadium, killing 130 and injuring 368 The NRA did not bomb the Brussels Airport or Metro, leaving 9 dead and over 300 injured The NRA did not set off bombs in Ankara, leaving 102 deaths and over 400 injured These are all Islamic terrorist attacks, undertaken in the name of Radical Islam. President Obama refuses to say Radical Islam or Islamic Terrorism, claiming at most the perpetrators are engaged in a perversion of Islam. Hundreds of these attacks have occurred globally in recent years in the name of Islam, but the President stubbornly refuses to admit the existence of radical Islam. Instead, he goes back to gun control and the NRA. Civilization's war for survival is with militant Islam - not the NRA.
