So is it OK for the NRA and it's followers to politicize it by telling people they need more guns?

Every time something like this happens, they are out in force in the media and on here telling people they need more guns, using the tragedy as push for more guns.

The regressives never let a crisis go to waste.

Not too mention they use this tragedy as another opportunity to bash Obama.

Maybe some of the victims would have welcomed Obama arriving to speak up on this heinous tragedy.
To immortalise it into political lore...

As part of a remembrance.


Remember the holocaust...

"Never again" is the political motto...


Remember Oregon...

Never again.



*generalising in these threads is warranted when all we hear from the right is "those progressives, liberal, commie, socialist, gun grabbing, anti gunners"...

If I, as a progressive socialist am lumbered with the liberal, commie, anti gun, gun grabbers then you can take one for the apathy team.


"Maybe"...I see you are ASSuming again. I have never seen nor read of any of the regular citzenry (not those in politics that either risk their jobs or benefit on some way fro a POTUS visit) saying anything but they do not wish him to visit.
To use your mindset, maybe some of the victims would like to forget this incident. Not everyone prefers to remember tragic events, every day, or make it a rallying cry. I know a lot of family members of my own that only wanted to put a tragedy behind them, move on with life, and only remember the good things of the person and not the tragic and senseless death (think killed by a multiple offense drunk driver). They didn't want to use the death of their close family member as a rallying cry against drinking, restricting drinking, or possibly banning certain drinks because of their perception of being "more bad" than others of their ilk. They sure as heck wouldn't want it to be politicized that is for sure.

So, neither of us are them, and neither of us have any RIGHT to speak for them. I will let them, the victim's families make that decision. And I think the POTUS would be expressing true leadership if he also respected their wishes.

stated they do not want Obama there to politicize the tragedy as he has already done. I cannot BELIEVE that anyone , much less the POTUS ,with any moral character would want to take a tragedy and turn it into a political forum so soon after the tragedy.That right there tells me a LOT about Obama . I




Kind of like Benghazi ..right or is that OK in your eye..?


That's right. Benghazi.
Benghazi, when President Barack Hussein Obama politicized and blatantly lied to the grieving families of the Benghazi murder victims, as their loved ones' coffins rolled off the plane at the airport.

Benghazi, where the President and Secretary of State, 'comforted' the victim's family members by vowing he wouldn't rest until the man who made the horrific youtube video that was responsible for their deaths, was brought to justice.

Yeah OK


How the right can lie so much shows me their moral code. They didn't care about the people who died..it was all about making the admin look bad. Hell you even got someone admitting it.

So of course when Obama does it, it's bad....when the right does it...they are looking for justice..


Ok , with that comes my famous line....Thank you for playing the game , but you are now all out of tokens

And then the right...like the vultures they are..turned it into an opportunity for political gain.

I would be with you guys if the right didn't turn into that or make it into a circus..but as long as the hypocritical keep speaking, I will keep pointing it out.

Well answer the question..did you think the same thing when the right used Benghazi tragedy as an opportunity for political gain or is it only bad when Obama does it...meaning you are nothing but a big hypocrite.

See , this is the reason I make my famous statement to posters. I do not play the game when all I get are inane , incohesive , rhetoric that assumes a poster knows me and my demographics . You friend are all done...
And may I add , you are drifting off-topic. This is about the tragedy and politicization of said tragedy. If you want to post about Benghazi , start a thread. But please make it coherent and to the point.

Just an FYI to you.....

This rocked the whole NW as a community, the whole country. Sorry and regards to that. Sure not everyone isn't aligning with Obama not being there, as any place. The officials as shared, want him to visit. The thread was presented well but turned into defensive grounds. What would one expect? But to call everyone out on some agenda really does no favors and is in fact bloviating in itself(fancy word everyone is using now?).

What about respect for the wishes of the victims families? They clearly reject the POTUS from visiting their town to capitalize on the death of their family member. It seems to me their feelings on the matter, should trump your personal agenda.

Because one idiot said that you judge the whole party? I lean more to the right and I never felt that for a moment.

If the right wing regressives want to be the voice of aborted babies, then Obama can be the voice of murdered students...


Neither victim has a say, why should only one side have a voice?


What would Jesus do?

I'm sure he'd be a pro gun regressive nutter as well.



Thanks Obama.


The victims families have every right to not want Obama to come and politicize their dead. I think that's fair of them to ask.

OFF TOPIC SIDE NOT:
I take offense to your constant use of "right-wing regressive" and "gun nutter" talk. It's getting very old, and in some ways shows how intolerant and hypocritical you are, yet wish for all of us to tolerate you, Islam and the ME. Can you not add to the discussion without name calling?

I don't care what you tolerate to be perfectly frank with you.


Take the PC crap elsewhere.
I'll address people however I feel like it.



Just know it was The Right Regressives that created this beast you're having discourse with...

I'm tired of all of it...
& the nutters will reap what they sowed.
