President Obama is the last politician who should speak out against mass shootings. After President Obama’s statement Monday, President Trump noted that “President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. Not many people said Obama is out of control.” It’s fair to say that President Obama’s language was more restrained than President Trump’s language.

What isn’t fair is to say that President Trump’s language has contributed to these mass shootings. That’s nothing except sloppy rationalization. It doesn’t have anything to do with the truth.

As was often his habit, President Obama characterized himself as the arbiter of truth and the American way. In 2016, Americans rejected that narcissism and elected President Obama’s opposite when they elected President-Elect Trump. In his statement, President Obama said, in part, “We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”

I don’t recall President Obama criticizing anti-Semitic Democrats like Rashida Tlaib or Ilhan Omar compare Jews with animals. President Obama certainly didn’t criticize Louis Farrakhan for his anti-Semitic dehumanizing comments. There certainly isn’t anything on the record with President Obama criticizing #BlackLivesMatters for this:

Then there’s Joaquin Castro’s tweet:


I’m so thankful that Democrats aren’t doxing people and putting their lives at risk from Antifa thugs. Joaquin Castro is a thug. He should be fired by his constituents for threatening people for being political activists.

The truth is that President Obama is just the highest-profile Democrat political thug. He certainly isn’t the only Democrat political thug.
