A Democrat who likes to reminisce about his time as president used a mass shooting event to justify imposing stricter restrictions on the general public accessing firearms.
Barack Obama wants to crack down on gun ownership after eight Georgians were shot dead at multiple massage parlors across Greater Atlanta.
The former president blamed the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus for the Biden administration’s failure to address widespread gun violence.
“Even as we have battled the pandemic, we have continued to neglect the longer-lasting epidemic of gun violence in America,” he said on Twitter.
Without even waiting for law enforcement officers to finish their investigations, Obama suggested his successor Donald Trump was somehow responsible for creating prejudice against people belonging to another race.
“Although the shooter’s motive is not yet clear, the identity of the victims underscores an alarming rise in anti-Asian violence that must end,” he said.
Obama also seized on the tragedy to encourage his fellow party members to introduce stricter gun control measures to “root out the pervasive patterns of hatred and violence in our society.”
“Michelle and I pray for the victims, their families, everyone grieving these needless and devastating killings—and we urge meaningful action that will save lives,” he said. “[These] shootings are another tragic reminder that we have far more work to do to put in place common sense gun safety laws.”
Obama recently reversed his official position on extreme anarchist protesters who rioted, looted, and vandalized businesses, historical monuments, and places of worship.
After years of directing the White House to prevent African Americans from receiving any financial compensation, Obama now suggested he had no moral issue with rioters shoplifting in the name of racial equality.
“So if you ask me theoretically, ‘Are reparations justified?’ The answer is yes,'” he said in a Spotify podcast. “There’s not much question. Right—that the wealth of this country, the power of this country, was built in significant part, not exclusively maybe not the even majority of it but a large portion of it was built on the backs of slaves.”
He blamed white representatives for preventing his administration from passing any reparation legislation through Congress.
“What I saw during my presidency was that the politics of white resistance and resentment,” he said. “The talk of welfare queens and the talk of the undeserving poor … [that] struck me as politically, not only a nonstarter but potentially counterproductive.”
The Democrat then commented that working white Americans still have unsettled debts and do not have the financial resources to seek medical assistance from a primary health professional.
“It is perfectly understandable why working-class white folks, middle-class white folks, folks who are having trouble paying the bills or dealing with student loans … or you know, do not have health care,” he said. “They feel like government has let them down.”
