In the wake of the slaughter of 14 people at a Christmas party in California — likely by Islamic extremists — liberals have gone to great lengths to politicize the massacre, even as many of the wounded remain in critical condition. The first responses of all three Democrat presidential candidates immediately called for stricter gun control measures, while offering no solace for the victims of the deadly massacre and their families .
It comes as no surprise that President Obama, too, utilized the occasion to once again tout his agenda for infringing on the Second Amendment, stating:
“The one thing we do know is that we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.”
The sick irony of his remark lies in the fact that that Obama had just left Paris, where ISIS terrorists had recently slaughtered 132 people — with guns as well as with bombs.
But the creme de la creme of comments which expose the liberal agenda came from U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, when she addressed the shooting in a Thursday morning speech.
She referred to the mass shooting as an “unspeakable crime,” and then stated, “Whatever the result of the investigation — we don’t know a lot right now. But one thing is clear, that violence like this has no place in this country.” Lynch added, ” This is not what we stand for, this is not what we do, this is not what we work for, it’s not what we live for. It’s antithetical to our values.”
But that’s not the zinger. In further commenting, she let this telling remark slip:
“We’re at the point where these issues have come together really like never before in law enforcement thought and in our nation’s history and it gives us a wonderful opportunity and a wonderful moment to really make significant change.”
Think about that. The head of the U.S. Justice Department referred to the death of 14 innocent people at the hands of a murderous Muslim duo as a “wonderful opportunity” and a “wonderful moment.” No matter how you spin that, it says everything that one needs to know about progressives and how much they care for the citizens of America. It’s all about their agenda, and they will never let a serious crisis go to waste in order to further it.
