Don’t bother Mr Obama, he’s busy playing golf. He can’t be bothered by those 13 people killed and tens of thousands displaced following the floods in Louisiana, or those blacks shot and killed on the mean streets of Chicago — even after it was those black votes he desired because of a certain melanin match or a certain Republican president Mr Obama accused of being “uncaring” during Katrina in NOLA.
You see, Mr Obama detests “fakery.” He detests the “theater” of politics.
And then — what? — more shootings and death in Chicago? Meh. Not worthy of even a mention. Those deaths and that carnage doesn’t serve to advance Mr Obama at all. One must serve before one acquires a mention.
From Breitbart.com this past weekend:
Dozens Shot, Four Killed over Weekend in Gun-controlled Chicago
by AWR Hawkins
Dozens were shot–four fatally–over the weekend in heavily gun controlled Chicago.
This death and violence follows the 52 who were shot–nine fatally–during the previous weekend in Chicago.
According to ABC News, a 7-year-old girl was among the wounded. She was shot while attending “a vigil for another shooting victim.” A 36-year-old woman was also shot while attending that vigil.
At one point during the weekend — “an intense 14-hour stretch of violence that ran from Saturday into Sunday” — someone was shot in Chicago “every 33 minutes.” The Chicago Tribune reported the same portion of the weekend — “from Saturday afternoon to early Sunday” — was especially violent last weekend too. During that time alone, “five people were killed and at least 19 others were wounded.”
Forty-nine people were shot, nine fatally, two weekends ago, and “52 people were shot, seven of them fatally” the weekend before.
You know, in Chicago. That Demorat/Leftist city controlled historically by Demorat/Leftist mayors (and Mayor Rahm Emanuel now), a pristine and shining example of Demorat/Leftist values where blacks are lifted from poverty, have jobs and are able to acquire their dreams in a Utopian atmosphere of understanding and funding, and guns are proscribed for a violence-free, clean environment.
I mean, there are gun laws in Chicago. Real gun laws. And gun laws stop criminals! Right?
Of course they do. Just ask a Demorat or a Leftist.
That, of course, goes hand-in-hand or, perhaps, blood puddle-in-blood puddle with my prior post only a few days ago where 100 people were shot in Chicago on a single weekend as well.
If you want to stop gun violence, you’d best start with inserting the black father into the family equation and stop paying people for more children absent a father, embrace religion and churches, clean up schools and bring the trades back into them, lean on “stop and frisk,” demand the “broken windows” mindset from police, emphasize education with a focus on the basics and halt generational welfare. Blacks in urban neighborhoods have just as much a right to be safe on their streets and in their homes as anyone else.
Let’s face it, Obama is “calling it in” and “checking out” as a lame-duck president. I submit: he didn’t much care about the job in the first place. He liked the perks. Hated the bother of it all.
