More outright lies from POTUS at the Dallas Memorial

So much for honoring 5 slain police officers.  Oh, Obama started out alright, but then he just couldn’t help himself.  He had to slip into ideological mode and tell a whopper of a lie to try and get it headed around the world before the truth could put on its shoes.  The lie?

 “It’s easier for a teenager to get his hands on a Glock than a computer…or even a book.”

Is it?  Really?  This is rhetorical garbage presented as “the truth”.  It is a base assumption you are supposed to swallow so when he says you need to give up your right to arm yourself in self defense, you will assume it is “for the children”.

The truth?  To get a book, all you need is the price of one or, if that’s not available, there are libraries which will give a child a book to read for just showing a library card.  I’m sure he’s heard of them.  And, as for a computer, again, it’s a price thing – come up with the money, get the computer.  Ironically, most libraries also have public computers.

But, and he might not know this, they won’t check out a Glock to you.

No, that process involves just a bit more work.  First you have to be 18 to even be considered as eligible to buy a gun.  Then, there’s that price thing again, not to mention a federal background check.  Hmm … I’ve never had a federal background check to buy a computer nor was I required to get one to buy a book.

Like most other things this man says, it is falsifiable nonsense.  It’s propaganda.  It’s the big lie, told often enough to be believed by low information citizens, especially on the left.  It is a false trail diverting the country from the real problem, a problem he has been instrumental in enabling.

Why couldn’t he just be a president for a day and join the country in mourning 5 officers who did gave their lives protecting others from a murderer?

  • Even told as a deliberate exaggeration for effect, it was out of bounds at that memorial.
    Not so for the master of Fast and Furious I suppose, speaking of flooding communities with illegal weaponry – (with apologies to the Marines) Obama himself has spread them – ‘from the Halls of Montezuma, to the Shores of Gay Paree’

    Any hope that he’s hit bottom in the narcissistic demagogue department and can’t get lower assumes the hopeful idea that there’s actually a place down there to which he cannot go.
    Tasteless, but after 8 years not much of a surprise.

  • Never let the truth get in the way of ideology. Why spoil his record now?
    It is the one way Barry Mom-Jeans remains very consistent.

    • Best comment I heard today: “Why isn’t the White Hut bathed in Blue Light?”

    Why are you surprised? You are not the target audience for his empty rhetoric. The audience is the faithful and those who might be swayed in the coming election. What better way to remove concerns about Mdm Hillary’s conduct, past debacles like Libya, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, evaporating red lines, corporate bailouts etc than to instigate race riots and blame gun owners for black deaths? BLM are foolish but willing muscle for what is still mostly a white privileged party. They might as well put on brown shirts and jaunty riding pants. There is no interest in being “presidential” if by which you mean a selfless interest in the best of the country. He has clearly never been interested in THAT.

  • “It’s easier for a teenager to get his hands on a Glock than a computer…or even a book.”

    Of course, every time he speaks about guns, the lines gets longer at the gun stores.

    • Well, that’s because we had no idea it was easier to buy guns than books!
      I have a house full of books already, the resale value on them is practically nil.

      Time to fill the place up with guns!
      I resold a Browning Hi-Power 9mm in 1996 for the same price (tax included) I bought it in 1980 – and I used it every other weekend or so for 2 years.

      Try that with even a mint paperback copy of “Stranger in a Strange Land” or “Nine Princes in Amber”.

    —-Cuz he’s a POS?

  • I have borrowed books from friends and neighbors. I wonder what would happen if I tried to borrow a gun?
