Barack Obama just launched a disgusting new attack on the Second Amendment
Barack Obama has said that not enacting gun control was one of his biggest regrets as president.
So after the Parkland, Florida murders Obama went on offense to push for gun control.
But what he just wrote about the Second Amendment in this 406-word essay will make your blood boil.
TIME Magazine published an op-ed by former President Obama praising Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School students David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez, Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, and Alex Wind.
These are the students the media most exploits to push their anti-Second Amendment narrative.
Obama writes in TIME:
The Parkland, Fla., students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet.
But they have the power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom.
Obama thinks the Second Amendment is “outdated.”
But what he fails to understand is the right to self-defense is not granted by any government.
In terms of human history it’s the idea that individuals are subjects of the state that is truly outdated. The Second Amendment is at the core of what makes America so great.
Obama goes on to jab the NRA, but the truth is, gun-grabbers have the entire national media, nearly every celebrity in Hollywood, and billionaires like George Soros and Michael Bloomberg all touting their cause.
Obama didn’t stop there.
As these young leaders make common cause with African Americans and Latinos—the disproportionate victims of gun violence—and reach voting age, the possibilities of meaningful change will steadily grow.
Our history is defined by the youthful push to make America more just, more compassionate, more equal under the law. This generation—of Parkland, of Dreamers, of Black Lives Matter—embraces that duty.
In his closing lines, Obama can’t help himself but to heap praise on so-called DREAMers and Black Lives Matter protesters.
With this carefully crafted sentence, he’s essentially telling readers that Second Amendment supporters are racist.
This is yet another despicable attack on law-abiding Americans by Obama.
He’d rather praise people that break the law and riot in the streets than show any respect to Americans who “cling to guns and religion.”
