MoveOn and Obama Exhibit Detachment Syndrome on Aurora Murders
President Obama's Soros-funded propaganda group MoveOn.org couldn't wait to politicize James Holmes' shooting rampage in Aurora, Colorado.
By midday Friday MoveOn sent an email to its members urging them to sign a Mayors Against Illegal Guns petition to end the violence. The group called on Congress to start closing loopholes and enacting laws to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.
The organization's missive also included references to past tragedies; conspicuously omitting the Ft. Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan from the list.
In the MoveOn newsletter:
We're also so angry. From children's lives lost in school shootings, to Trayvon Martin, the Representative Gabrielle Giffords attack, and this latest slaughter of innocents, we are not safe from gun violence.
At the same moment of giving a pass to the Muslim terrorist who shot and killed 12 military personnel and one civilian at Ft. Hood in 2009, MoveOn wants us to believe restricting gun rights is the answer.
On the contrary, the high number of casualties may not have happened, if good law-abiding citizens were allowed to carry guns with them. It should be about expanding our right for both open and concealed carry.
And in a campaign stop in Ft. Myers, Florida, an emotionally detached Obama delivered a message to the grieving Aurora families that this was not a time for politics; yet the crowd can be heard whooping it up at inappropriate moments during the speech. [see video of his remarks where audience members behind the president were actually laughing on screen].
Of course, Obama didn't mention the issue of gun rights as his mouthpiece MoveOn did, but he certainly knows about the decision coming down from the State Department next week whether to sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty which will further restrict our right to bear arms in the U.S.
