Obama On Charleston Shooting: We as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.
Doesn’t the president pay attention to what is happening across the world as a whole, across all continents without regard for how advanced or not a country is?
Religious extremism is the order of the day, not the exception.
Europe suffers beheadings, grenade attacks and large scale riots that the US doesn’t.
In Europe, all of Europe, the police routinely patrol carrying automatic weapons as their standard weapons.
Europe essentially is a police state that is constantly prepared to crackdown on dissent caused by economic poverty.
The President stuck his head in the sand and denied religious extremism exists and when it is brought home to him, he denies it exists still. He insists that what happens in America is the exception and not the rule.
The President stuck his head in the sand and ignored what ISIS represented and people died for that and that blood is on his hands.
And now, all he wants is to use Charleston as a pretext to go after gun owners and pretend the rest of the world doesn’t exist. That larger violence happens everyday on every continent. That groups like Boko Haram don’t exist, that they don’t kidnap and kill in such large numbers it becomes just a statistic.
Greater violence exists in the world and the question is why it’s not worse then it is in America and what it is that helps fan the fires of hatred in America, such as a President that has set back civil rights 50 years by allowing the DOJ to prosecute as they see fit and ignore laws as they see fit..
Civil rights must be for all people all the time or violence happens. We have yet to truly experience religious extremism, but it is coming.
