NRA ad is right: Obama IS a hypocrite

January 20, 2013

It’s always “for the children”

The political left wing and the minion media arm of it are all aghast and outraged over the latest NRA ad exposing the hypocrisy of Obama and his elites on the issue of school safety.

The ad, highlights the fact that while Obama and the left are doing everything they can to “never let the Sandy Hook crisis go to waste” and ridiculing the National Rifle Association’s position that armed guards in public schools is one way to protect our children, the private schools that educate the children of the elites of this nation DO have armed guards.

A portion of the ad’s transcript below:

“…Are the President’s kids more important than yours? Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools, when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools. Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but, he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. Protection for their kids, and gun free zones for ours.”

Now of course the left went nuts over the NRA daring to call out their Dear Leader.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, panelist Mike Barnicle lambasted it as “political pornography”, pretty boy Donny Deutsch puked out “that’s one of the grossest things I’ve ever seen in my life” and devout Obama worshipers Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough chimed in on que for six minutes of dutiful “outrage” over how “extreme” the NRA has become. (Watch the YouTube upload here.)

Rather than deal with the facts of the hypocrisy of Obama’s positions, the media response has been to attack the messenger.

But don’t blame them, they HAVE to. They sure as hell can’t tell the truth:

Obama IS a hypocrite.

But his hypocrisy didn’t start with gun control. Within 6 months of his first inauguration Obama signed legislation killing the Washington D.C. school voucher system that let low income “our kids” trapped in D.C. public schools use a $7500 voucher to attend Sidwell Friends and other private schools.

When faced with the the decision to stand “with the children” or “back his union contributors”, Obama chose the unions.

This isn’t about “using” the President’s kids because they can’t attend a public school as the “first kids”. Even before Washington, Obama’s little tykes attended the over $25 grand a year tuition, security controlled, Chicago Laboratory Schools.

Nowhere in that NRA ad does it say that the children of our President’s should not have armed security. It does however speak the truth that the President and the political elite impose one set of rules for “us” while enjoying a different set for them and theirs.

So enough with the crocodile tears over Obama’s kids. He himself has used them constantly when it was to his advantage.

From none other than Michael Shear writing in the Caucus blog for the New York Times:

“….Mr. Obama rarely passes up an opportunity to mention his girls in public, often using them as object lessons in explaining his reasoning behind important policy positions…..

….He talks about them constantly in policy speeches, at fund-raisers and in interviews…..

And here’s the money quote:

“A review of transcripts released by the White House shows that Mr. Obama has mentioned his daughters in public remarks more than 100 times over the last three years.”

Did all you lefties “outraged” at the NRA notice that?  Joe, Mika, Mike, Donny, any of you?  The President himself has USED his daughters over a 100 times?  “Gross pornography” or necessary manipulation?  Guess it’s all in who’s doing it right?

Yep, you read it right.  In the first 3 years alone, oh so “protective papa” Barack Hussein Obama has used his own daughters over 100 times when it was to his political advantage to do so. (And that 100 times number was in May of last year, who knows how many more have occurred since.)

Now THAT is hypocrisy every good lefty can be proud of.

If the anti-gun zealots and their media handmaidens were truly interested in “the children” and their safety, the attention and the stories would be on the mayors and politicians of those cities where all the gun control in the world is doing nothing to stop “the children” from dying on a daily basis.

For all the whining and hand wringing over what type of gun Americans “need” (defined by liberals as what type they are going to let you have), and for all the using of children as props for their political agenda, the facts remain that:

  1. More guns means LESS crime not MORE. The number of guns in America have almost doubled since 1994 yet in that same time period gun violence has DROPPED by almost 50 percent.
  2. The assault weapons ban was not effective then (Columbine anyone? And don’t even bother to bring up the “guard”, he was under rules of engagement that were ineffective at best.) and it would not be effective now.
  3. The most violent and deadly areas in America are all in the most heavily gun regulated and Democratically controlled cities, Chicago, L.A., New York, Detroit yet the gun control myth is perpetuated ad nauseam.

But for all the truth backing up all the facts, the attacks on the NRA and pro-2nd amendment individuals and groups will not only continue, they will get louder, they will become more prevalent, and they will get very, very nasty. It is the Alinksy way, it is the Chicago way, and it is the Obama way.

Obama and crowd may not like the fact that the Constitution is a collection of “negative liberties” that restrains their beloved government power, but like it or not it is the ONE thing that has kept America as intended for over two centuries now.

The very reason the 2nd amendment is there in the first place is to ensure that the “beliefs” of a few do not become the tyranny of the many.

And the left can delude itself into believing they are “reasonable” all day long, the sun will never rise on the day that their “reasoning” will be allowed to “infringe” upon the 2nd amendment, Constitutional rights of responsible, law abiding citizens.

History is littered with the graves of the victims of oppression and dictatorial power. Powers that had but one common theme: it was all done for the “sake of the children”.

Neither an absolute ban on all guns nor an army of guards in every school can protect all the children all the time.

No policy, no law, can protect our children from every threat, nor guarantee their absolute safety.

But we can ensure that the rights guaranteed them under their Constitution be not infringed for the sake of one man’s political ideology.

    Sadly, you’re spitting into the wind. The enamored will give ANYthing for their Fueh… uh, president. If that means giving up rights of others that they never planned to practice anyway, well hell yes, sign them up! I mean, I don’t smoke, so kill the smokers! I don’t own guns, so kill the gun owners! I don’t post online, so kill the free speech… wait, what? Oh.. uh.. yeah, I guess, I mean, if that’s what our Great Leader has to do.. I mean, I have noticed a few more “anti-government op-eds lately, so I guess I can see why none of can post anything… okay, yeah, sure, if it’ll stop people questioning our Dear Leader, I’m all for it! I didn’t really need to post anyway. I mean, if I’m supporting him ,can I still post? No? Well, I guess I’m okay with that. If I still agree to kiss his ass, can I at least see his face? Government knows best, after all… provided that government has a (D) after it, of course.

    As I posted on Anson’s site, I think we’re done. I hate to feel that way, but I do. I think the Rubicon has been crossed. There’s no taking back from those who have tasted government “freebies”. That other blogger and his asshole sycophants have won (McKnight, Jane Sucksme and others). Once they have been paid to do nothing, they’ll fight tooth and nail to prevent them having to actually work to live again. The majority are now depending on the minority to provide for them, and are voting for those who promise to make it so. All that’s left is the shouting, to coin and old phrase. We’ll either go quietly into that good night, or Atlas will shrug. Either way, we’ll cease to exist. Perhaps Canada will be our Byzantium, but I doubt it. Even those who think they have it made, living off the backs of others, will need to learn Mandarin and Cantonese, and that’s real work. I don’t hold out much hope for them. But hey, they enjoyed it while they had it, right?

    I agree with you on every point except one. That being that we’re already done. Yes, it is a hopeless, naive thought but I still just can’t let myself believe that that cobbled together “majority” propped up by data mining and the most lies and personal attacks ever told in a Presidential election is a “majority” that can stand.
    To paraphrase, “selfish is as selfish” does and when Dear Leaders policies start coming down on them full force, the disillusionment is going to take one large ass bottle of pills.
    While the “takers” and the dwainbwains made up the vast majority of O’s votes, it was the suburbans and blue collar upper midwest who put him over the top and those will flip as soon as the next tax increase to pay for all the crap the dwainbwains are demanding. (Not to mention inflation and the jobs going overseas just as Romney told them they would.)

    And then there is the fact that Obama could not have had a better collection of misfits to run against this year. Between Romney campaigning as if it was 1960 and Americans still had some common sense and voters letting their anger at some Tea Party candidates cut their nose off to spite their face the outcome was as predictable as Obama spending his next four years doing nothing but divide, demonize and demagogue.

    Geoff and Nonny,

    Are we “done” or not is a good topic. However the point of the blog was primarily another one supporting the NRA and “freedom”. My conclusion is if “we” keep supporting things like the NRA and pro-life groups, well we will be “well done”, without any “red meat” left. Instead we, conservatives, must wisely pick our fights with the majority now and stop spreading our ideas across too broad a spectrum.

    Fiscal responsibility and national defense that makes sense (given today’s fiscal irresponsibility!) should be our goals. Gun control and abortion are much smaller issues and we should seek compromise, constructive compromise, in such issues.

    Look just at gun control if you will. Both sides agree that the mentally ill should not have access to any guns (I hope). Why not just focus on that single topic, how to better diagnose, treat and control the mentally ill, and while doing so (all three points) keep any deadly weapons out of their hands? No it will not stop all gun violence but it might make progress in keeping guns out of the hands of real “nuts”, not just “gun nuts”.
    LIberals are making real progress displaying the NRA as just another form of the KKK. Cherry pick the quotes and pictures (emphasize white supremists for example) and the PR battle is won for a majority of Americans. And if you tried a PR battle showing guns in the hands of Black Power groups, well you will be called a racist for sure and lose that PR fight today as well!!
    As he does on many liberal ideas, Obama has overreached on the gun control issue. Sweeping bans on “everything” will not pass muster in Congress and “we” as conservatives don’t need to sound like a modern day KKK opposing such efforts by liberals. Instead, IF “we” feel compelled to “scream” about gun control, well why not look for ways to compromise, quietly, on things that any sane people can agree upon, like guns in the hands of mentally ill people.
    Just look for the moment at the “current screams” from the right. They are irrational screams (my view) over gun control while we are, again, losing the battle to curb government spending. Which is more important?
    If you say BOTH are equally important and we must not give on either topic, well there “we” go again, down the tubes in 2014.
    SOME “conservatives” in fact sound like a modern day KKK on some issues, just like SOME liberals sound like Bolsheviks of old. But who gets all the public attention? Look at election results in 2012 for your answers.

      Sorry, Anson, but I can’t buy the idea of giving up basic freedoms to keep basic freedoms. That’s especially true when recent history shows that the first and biggest hurdle a regime faces in order to implement all of their policies is to forcibly disarm the populace. Once the boulder starts rolling down the hill, it’s not possible to stop it, or even direct where it goes or who it hits. So no, if we give up on this one, if we think we can “Chamberlain” our way into their good graces, we’ve lost everything. Is it futile to attempt a stand against a government? I have no way of knowing. But I’m thinking Americans in the past, from the minutemen to Rosa Parks, all thought the fight was worthwhile.
