President Joe Biden interjected contentious and utterly irrelevant political issues into what might have been a solemn moment of mourning with all those who mourn only two and a half minutes into his remarks following the tragic elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
“As a nation, we have to ask, when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?” Biden stated, later tweeting the same thing.
“I am sick and tired of it. We have to act,” he added.
By “act,”, Joe Biden refers to enacting the anti weapon regulations and executive orders that his administration is always looking for a way to drive through, regardless of how useless such standards would have been at preventing the offender in a crime committed. In the substance of his statement, which lasted the most of its 7 minutes, his meaning became crystal evident.
Biden then moved on to Democrat platitudes about modern recreational weapons such as rifles and alleged facts about the shooter, like the news that the eighteen year old coward boy walked it in to a gun store to purchased two (((“assault weapons”))), despite the fact that many of those specifics are still unknown. For example, one story claims the shooter bought a gun online, while another claims he bought two rifles on his 18th birthday, and yet another claims he was armed with one rifle and a handgun, according to authorities.
“For God’s sake, we have to have the courage to stand up to the industry,” Biden stated, addressing the so-called gun lobby rather than the shooter or the corporate media, which frequently sensationalises these types of murderers and their actions.
Hours after the tragedy, while Biden was reciting Democrat talking points about guns, distraught Texas parents were learning that their son or daughter was one of the 19 confirmed child victims. “The agonized screams of family members are audible from the parking lot,” wrote one Texas reporter as families sobbed outside the reunification site after hearing the unfathomable news that they would never embrace their children again.
That the president would simultaneously ask, “When in God’s name are we stand up to the gun lobby” demonstrates that he is unconcerned about the anguish that no words on a page could ever express. His first priority isn’t devastated children or their bewildered parents, who would gladly swap places with their missing offspring.
The Texas victims are little more to this administration than a stick with which to bash their opponents and an opportunity to profit from their hatred against firearms and those who appreciate law-abiding Americans’ right to bear them.
Biden had an opportunity to persuade us otherwise and bring the country together in a time of mourning. But, in a couple of minutes on a tragic day, he revealed where his true heart lies, and it isn’t with the victims. It has something to do with the DNC’s to-do list.
