Skip to comments.Mention of Mass Stabbing Curiously Missing From Obama's Pennsylvania Speech
Posted on 04/17/2014 11:29:12 AM PDT by Kaslin
Yesterday President Obama gave a speech in Oakdale, Pennsylvania with Vice President Joe Biden about skill training. Last week, just thirty miles away in Murrysville, a student went on a mass stabbing rampage at Franklin Regional High School. Twenty people were severely injured in the incident, making it one of the worst mass stabbing events in U.S. history.
But despite being close to the scene of the tragic and horrifying event, Obama failed to mention the incident during his nearly 30 minute long remarks.
I have a feeling if there had been a recent tragedy that involved a gun at a school near the location of an Obama speech, we'd be hearing all about it. Apparently, 20 people being stabbed isn't politically expedient enough for the White House.
... because it doesn’t promote his disarming of citizens agenda.
There’s something seriously wrong when “skill training” is believed to need the attention of the President and Vice President.
Bingo! You win the prize with posting the correct response, first.
“because it doesnt promote his disarming of citizens agenda.”
I think they both need the skill training.
....because he can’t mention a problem for which Government has no solution.
His liberal base wouldn’t understand how a situation could possibly exist which government couldn’t solve.
Was the stabber on anti-psychotic meds?
Roger that. No gun, no harm, no foul in their eyes. Unlike the daily dozens of sisters shooting their brothers. Probably hundreds of times a day according to nannie bloomers.
Good question. We'll probably have to wait for the trial to learn the answer.
He must be stoned. Again.
Just as a thought exercise:
There is no right to bear knives written into the Constitution. Does this mean they could theoretically ban knives?
Wasn't the perp, too? Or is his whiteness cancelled by that of the vics?
We need to work up some theory about this. Basic data would include the Outrage Factors appended to the Zimmermann verdict, the OJ verdict, the Reginald Denny verdict(s), and various shooting episodes (Littleton, Phoenix, Blacksburg, etc.), and the various flashmob attacks on Caucs. (Reminder: we need a new, derogatory, creatively insulting and demeaning word for European-Americans. "Ofay", "Honkey", and "Gray" are dated, and "cracker" is too regional.)
I suspect he was, although - if he wasn't - we may not learn about it for a long time.
But - just a thought experiment - suppose he was African American. Do you really think the MSM would pay any more attention to the attack than the tiny amount they have?
The only race could have been used as a "hook" would have been if more than one or two of the victims had been A-A, or if the attacker had made racial remarks during or after the attack.
IIRC, one of the Columbine victims was a Black teen, male.
Barry and Joe obviously have a marketable skill. They’re certainly doing better than most of us.
Arms includes knives. There is no specific mention of guns in the Constitution. Besides, the Constitution doesn’t give us rights. It gives government limited powers.
An excellent summation.
