Former president Barack Obama is a man who exhibits selective outrage based upon how a tragedy can benefit advancing the utopian vision. If an event includes changing “the world as it is” into the world Obama thinks it “should be,” the former president will commend whomever he has to.
With that in mind, recently, via a piece written for Time magazine entitled “Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez and Alex Wind,” Obama praised the five Parkland student-activists who made Time’s 100 Most Influential People list.
The former president wrote, “America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern.” Obama’s article was even more “predictable.”
For starters, the ex-POTUS chided Americans for our behavior after a mass shooting:
We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then – even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support commonsense reforms – the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis.
Those sentiments come from a fellow whose whole career hinges on the debate that “spirals into acrimony and paralysis.” After all, Obama is the one who laments death by guns while supporting “pervasive accessibility” to abortion on demand. In fact, the most glaring contradiction in Obama’s Parkland stance is that 18 years ago, he would have heartily supported aborting the five teens to whom he pays Time tribute.
