Pissed Off Obama Blasts Republicans For Failing To Act After Planned Parenthood Shooting


We have arrived here, yet again. Another “mentally ill” gunman, who Republicans made damned sure had the ability to get a gun, got a gun and shot up another place. How totally surprising, right?

Republicans everywhere are dashing to defend the NRA and the second amendment, while screaming not to politicize what they are too afraid to call radical domestic terrorism. Shouldn’t we all be tired of this stuff by now?

We go through the exact same motions every time. Obama had to go before the nation yet again, trying to help heal our hurt. Meanwhile the Republicans who make sure crazy people can get guns, say how this is the fault of Democrats.

Obama is sick of this nonsense, and is bringing it right back into Republicans’ faces before they have the opportunity to explain why we can’t politicize domestic terrorism in America.

In Obama’s very first comments about this latest mess brought to you by the NRA, he immediately goes for the throat on the politicians too cowardly to stand up to them.

This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.

Finally we have hit the point where no more f*cks are left to give, and just maybe we can start attacking the real root of this problem. Every nation on Earth is loaded with mentally ill people. Somehow, none of these places have the level of domestic gun violence and terrorism we have. This is simply because they make an attempt at stopping murders and crazy people from getting guns with no questions asked. Will Republicans ever see the connection, or does their vision only extend to the NRA’s wildest and gory fantasies?

Remember, don’t just pray. Vote!

Read Obama’s full statement below:

The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence — people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time. And yet, two days after Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again.

We don’t yet know what this particular gunman’s so-called motive was for shooting twelve people, or for terrorizing an entire community, when he opened fire with an assault weapon and took hostages at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado. What we do know is that he killed a cop in the line of duty, along with two of the citizens that police officer was trying to protect. We know that law enforcement saved lives, as so many of them do every day, all across America. And we know that more Americans and their families had fear forced upon them.

This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.

May God bless Officer Garrett Swasey and the Americans he tried to save — and may He grant the rest of us the courage to do the same thing.
