It was earlier this week that the Democrats in the House, led by that buffoon of a racist John Lewis, once again resorted to their typically sophomoric and obviously politically motivated antics all in an effort to move the ball forward in their drive to do that which they are so desperate to achieve. That being, of course, the preventing of law abiding citizens from being able to own a gun in order to better protect themselves in our society which, because of this same Democrat Party, is growing increasingly violent. And it’s with the most casual perusal of these Democrat favored gun restrictions that they are working so hard to foist on we the American people that makes painfully obvious the fact that they would make no appreciable difference in reducing gun violence.
While these hypocrites claim that public safety is their sole concern, we all know there’s much more to it than that. As ‘Slow Joe’ would say, “It’s all just a bunch of malarkey!” For instance let’s take a look at what took place over this past Father's Day weekend in the city of Chicago, home of some of the strictest gun laws in the entire country. It was during the weekend that the city recorded its 300th murder and beyond for a total count of 306 homicides so far in 2016. The city recorded its 300th homicide this weekend and went on to record six others over a 60-hour period that saw 59 people shot, 13 fatally, from Friday afternoon through early Monday morning. So by all means, let’s use Chicago as being our example for what Democrats claim is needed for solving what they call our continuing gun problem.
This year alone roughly 1,800 people have been shot across the ‘Windy City’ and more than 200 of those wounded have died of their wounds, that is according to records kept by the Chicago Tribune. A total of 306 people have been killed this year by shooting, stabbing or other means, Tribune records show. The Chicago Police Department is expecting that crime would "intensify" during the summer months. But wait how can that be? When you have a city that, arguably, possesses the strictest gun laws in the country, why is it that it continues to be so difficult to prevent, or at least better manage, this growing level of violence? What it is that the Democrats want to do for those in a city already controlled completely by Democrats that would make this city safer? I’d really be interested to find out!
And it was as recently as this past May that the police in that city issued a statement saying: "As we look toward the summer months, Superintendent Johnson has made it very clear that the violence will not be tolerated - period," the statement said. And it went on to say, "The cause of the violence traces back decades, and everyone has a role to play in fixing it - police working with parents, judges, residents, clergy, community leaders, and others. Put simply, we need more values, fewer guns and stronger sentences against violence offenders." That statement was made when the murder count stood at 244. Now whether it’s ignorance or some blind devotion to leftist policies that simply never work, the leaders refuse to acknowledge the one thing that would actually reduce crime and save lives. Increasing legal gun ownership.
Instead it would at least appear that the violence has only continued to be tolerated as city leaders refuse to do what they must know is the only viable solution. And please excuse my confusion, but how is it that in a city with the sort of draconian gun laws that one finds in Chicago that there be, in any way, a call for fewer guns. Whose guns is it that they are talking about? And I thought it more than a little odd, even bizarre, to hear from those who reside in such a bastion of liberal lunacy, as is any big city in America, any reference being made about values as well as calling for stronger prison sentences. Because when you consider that most of the crime in Chicago is black on black, I thought Democrats routinely make the claim that we already have far too many young black men in prison.
And yet it was after has taken place that our Democrat politicians saw fit to do nothing more than play politics, sitting on their pompous, and rather sizable, behinds, burning holes in the carpet there on the House floor complaining about the recent mass gun shooting in Orlando while ignoring completely the continuing tragedy that is being allowed to play out, day after day, in big cities like Chicago. And while I may have been educated in New York even I’m able to come to the conclusion that 306 is a much bigger number than 49. But according to the liberal Common Core math way of thinking, it’s just the opposite that’s true, with 49 being a bigger number than 306. Perhaps is it because we had a Muslim who was the alleged perpetrator in Orlando and not some random black man, that it somehow makes a difference?
The fact is that Barry's true legacy will not likely be the one that either he, or any other Democrat will want to spend much time talking about. Because it will be Barry’s legacy that paints a bloody picture and makes very clear how it was that all Barry was successful in bringing about during his tenure was death, destruction, hatred and constant turmoil, to America and the world. Barry has been responsible for more death of any American president. Thousands are killed every year in America because of Barry, and multi-millions have been killed around the world because of Barry’s drive to diminish America’s traditional leadership role. And while it was the Clintons who brought low morals and lack of character to America and its elected officials, Barry has managed to take politics further into the gutter.
The bottom line here, and one that I would think by now should be painfully obvious, is how the Democrat Party, for at least the better part of the last 80 years, or maybe even longer, has proven itself to be a destructive, even toxic, force here in America. It has it been, and it continues to be, not only extremely bad for our country but also for the entire world. Never in our history have we experienced the level of corruption we’ve seen from this president. And global turmoil, violence and chaos as never been greater with it all able to be traced directly back to the disastrous foreign policy put forth by this country and the architect of which is Barack Hussein Obama and his incompetent cohorts Hiltery Clinton and John Kerry-Heinz. We must rid ourselves of this political sewage come this November, or we’re ALL dead!
