TX Gov. Perry: The Piling on by Political Left to Use Massacre of Children to Advance Political Agenda Disgusts Me

Barack Obama used children in his presentation today to push his pre-existing political agenda to crack down on gun owners.

Governor Rick Perry let the Democrats have it today after Barack Obama’s press conference on guns.
“It disgusts me, personally.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry released this statement today on President Obama’s executive actions on guns.

“The Vice President’s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.

“Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

“There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds. As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.

“In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.”

God bless, Texas.

    Oh shadow, grow up. Nobody is saying our first amendment rights have anything to do with gun violence. He said EVIL is to blame … and frankly, he’s right. It’s evil that makes people do the things they’re doing to corrupt our children, and it’s evil that drives people to oppress and prey on other people. However, evil simply cannot be legislated out of existence in a free society. I have no more interest in seeing our government step on the first amendment than I have in seeing them step on the second…

    What I want is for people to be held ACCOUNTABLE for their ACTIONS. Period. If you behave irresponsibly, whether it be with a firearm, or a keyboard, there should be consequences. Of course, people used to believe that they would be answering to God for their actions, but thanks to all the Godless jerks running around insulting and demeaning people of faith, that deterrent has been largely removed from millions of people’s lives. Now, we’re suffering the consequences of that. The fact is, human nature being what it is, people need SOME good reason to be responsible. In lieu of religion, and in light of the MISERABLE examples our leaders have been setting for us recently, personal responsibility has become a rare commodity, and if we don’t do something to correct that, things can only get worse.

    However, I don’t care HOW bad it gets, the answer is NOT to give God-like powers to our elected representatives. That sort of power will corrupt any normal human being, and there are countries all over the world with governments that are living proof of that.

    Disgusting, and suspicious. These sorts of shootings were rare until Hussein took over,

    Then explain:
    Lockheed Martin in 2003
    Living Church of God in 2005
    Red Lake in 2005
    Amish school in 2006
    Trolley Square in 2007
    Crandon, WI in 2007
    Westroads Mall in 2007
    Northern Illinois University in 2008
    Kirkwood City Council in 2008
    Atlantis Plastics in 2008

    Patty, I’d take Bush back in a second too, and I think most conservatives would agree with us. No, he wasn’t perfect, but at least he loved this country. Obama is the worst thing that’s EVER happened to America, and at the end of eight miserable years, I think that is going to become apparent to all but the most ignorant of his supporters. The cell phone lady already has it figured out, but I’m guessing Shadow will probably hold out … he’s still blaming Bush for Pete’s sake …

  • Highlander

    Good point shadow … seven in the four years prior to Obama … less than one a year. Then, three in Obama’s first year. And now, look at what we have. Thanks for making my point …

  • Highlander

    Blame it on the economy, blame it on desperation, blame it on fear, blame it on rumors of more gun control … but it’s pretty clear that there was an uptick in these shootings starting in 2007, and in my opinion, Obama owns that. One thing is certain shadow … Boosh had nothing to do with it …

    “Obama owns that. One thing is certain shadow … Boosh had nothing to do with it …”

    If you think there is some conspiracy purposefully put in place by Obama to orchestrate mass slaughters in order to force gun freaks to be more accountable and responsible for their arsenals, then your caboose has really jumped the tracks. This is craziness thinking on your part. You are not seeing reality, your mind is being manipulated. Wake up to yourself.

    Oh right, like it really was the idea of any of these kids to write to the President. More likely it was their parents that made them do it. And has anyone noticed that these four children just happen to represent the politcally correct racial mix of one white girl, one hispanic girl, one black boy, and one white boy. All staged by the most dishonest administration ever.

    This President must be impeached for his actions today…and Congress should treat it as a culmination of multi-impeachable actions (illegal appoints, the EO re immigration, the Mandate requiring churches to cover abortions/birth control; etc.)

    Isn’t it truly amazing that the report of the investigation of the President’s involvement in the killing of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, has not been issued in FOUR months. Yet, 23 Executives Orders are issued the day after Biden concludes his study of the Sandy Hook killings. It is obvious the Benghazi report is shelved to protect the President whereas the White House had to have these Executive Orders on gun control ready and waiting for the “right time.” After all, the Progressives’ motto is “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

    Ah, the sweet smell of projection by another stupid, phucking leftist.

    EVERYTHING about leftists disgusts me. But yeah, this one is especially nauseating.

    Exactly Winston …

    Calm down Widow. I said he OWNS it, I didn’t say he orchestrated it. You people really are unhinged …

    My, my, too much of a moron to realize what is protected doesn’t disqualify it from being evil or identified as such – a simple and elegant point to distinguish it from another evil [spawned by your pathetic drivel]: Relative morality excusing evil now being mindlessly repeated in a con-shell game to the point revealing of your imbecilic, irrelevant lack of moral or intellectual character.

    Besides Obama using armed security at His daughter’s school. .

    Obama hides behind innocent children (like Al Quida and all good Jihadists do) whom he deceived. .didn’t these children know secret service with GUNS were all over and around the stage? With orders to PROTECT the PRESIDENT at ALL COSTS. .even if these little children became collateral damage. But heck. . .what does OBAMA know or care about collateral when he spends our country to poverty .

    How is it that these 23 executive decrees cost so much. .first I heard $500MM now $4.5 BILLION!!!

    And what about FAST & FURIOUS

    And part of the 23 Executive Edicts is to have Doctors spy on gun owners. . . turning neighbor against neighbor like the Stasi of the former East Germany!

    Time to Impeach this radical Imposter and all those who stand with him.

  • mg4us

    Also, which Congressman or Senator has the courage to impeach OBAMA for his eligibility to serve as president. . .

    Show us the Birth Certificate and College Transcripts. . as well as passport, Social Security and Selective Service filings

    When DID OBAMA renounce his INDONESIAN Citizenship?

    “Calm down Widow. I said he OWNS it, I didn’t say he orchestrated it. You people really are unhinged …”

    typical passive/aggressive. Build the rhetoric up then backoff when challenged. Keep backpedaling fool.

    If Obama “owns it”, meaning he is responsible for fixing the problem then he is taking steps to frikin OWN it. That means gun freaks are going to be accountable and responsible for their their personal arsennals. Period. Full stop.

    You’re all about those two concepts aren’t you? Then be the first one to put your money where your flapping gums are. Register your guns and be accountable for their whereabouts. Quit perpetuating drama ffs. Have you any clue how psycho some of the gun freaks sound?

    Otherwise your dog whistle comment about Obama owning the violence problem in this country just smacks of conspiratorial nuttiness festering in the limp brains of people who love the drama and their fetish for guns fed by the nra.

    Which one are you?
