In an epic Facebook post, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called Barack Obama “a special kind of stupid” for demanding law-abiding gun owners answer for the terror attack at an Orlando, Florida, nightclub.
“Enough is enough, Mr. President. There’s no ‘due respect’ due you after pulling this stunt.”
“Exploiting a sick, evil, ideological-driven attack on Americans to further your twisted anti-Second Amendment mission is disgusting,” she added. “Today you’re demanding an ‘explanation’ from law-abiding gun owners, but not demanding the same from followers of Islam, the religion behind this terror?”
She wasn’t finished, and took Obama to task for wanting to take guns from law-abiding Americans.
“If the demented Orlando terrorist doesn’t represent all Islamic followers, then why do you insinuate he represents all gun owners?” she asked. “And why, after any shooting, do you always want to take away firearms from the innocent people who didn’t do it? Forget your asinine gun control, do your job and engage in Islamic terrorist control.”
She concluded by saying that “it’s a special kind of stupid to demand we explain ourselves” and linked to an article about Obama’s visit to Orlando.
According to that article, Obama “hit out at gun rights advocates, blaming them for the families’ anguish:”
“Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons, should meet these families and explain why that makes sense….Why is it they think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies? That’s not the meaning of liberty.”
He also blamed Republicans and gun advocates for the mass shooting:
“If we don’t act, we will keep seeing more massacres like this, because we will be choosing to allow them to happen. We will be saying we don’t care enough to do something about it.”
Translation: If you support the Second Amendment, you are to blame for every mass shooting in the country. And as far as Obama is concerned, the only solution is to strip all Americans of their right to keep and bear arms.
