Not from The Onion, Obama Version

Open piehole, insert foot:

With respect to Planned Parenthood, obviously my heart goes out to the families of those impacted. I mean, Nancy, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings. This just doesn’t happen in other countries.

Obama said this today . . . in Paris.

D’oh!

You know, we Americans don’t elevate our suffering above that of other people, Mr. President. That’s not who we are.

  7. Well his head is in the air when he made the statement. But considering that he was in Paris, and that he visited the theater where so many people had been killed, his head had to be somewhere far up his tookus when he decided that mass shootings just don’t happen outside the United States.

    Although he might well have concluded that weekly mass shootings don’t happen outside of his adopted hometown of Chicago.

  9. Well, just be happy and relieved he didn’t open his speech by — for example, as he did in 2009 — giving a “shout out” to some guy awarded the “Congressional Medal of Honor” (er, uh, actually the Medal of Freedom award handed out by, er, uh, him and not the Congress—but why should Barry know a minor detail like that?).

  10. Remember, this guy is so smart the press told us he was stepping down into the office of President. Brains coming out of his ass, this guy has.

  11. I was rolling on the floor laughing (or “ROLF” as Hillary! would put it when this guy was trying to make-fun of the GOP candidates (from Manilla; what class his guy has) by saying they’re afraid of widows and orphans.

    And I’m thinking, has this guy ever heard of Beslan? Or the Moscow theater massacre? The Volgograd bus bombing? Or is he a baby duck and history starts anew every morning.

    What made it more amusing is that Europe had just had its first female suicide bomber.

    But, yeah, I’d be especially concerned about widows, Tiger Beat, I wuz thinking. If any of them are anything like the Chechen Black Widows.

    We can’t vet any of these people, and for all he knows those widows among the refugees are widows of ISIS or Al Nusra or take-your-pick fighters. And the professionals say we can’t vet any of these people. Which is why he has to send his senior nat’l security adviser Ben Rhodes (whose qualification start and stop with a Masters degree in writing fiction, natch) to spout nonsense like “robust vetting procedures.”

    It’s like Prom Queen can’t help advertising he’s the last guy anybody would put in charge of mall security let alone national security.

    I hear President Selfie Stick is the smartest guy in any room but I’ve never seen any hint of that, especially when he goes off script.

    Steve57 (a13395)

  12. And here’s me thinking the “ISIS will run when we get an agreement on Climate Change” clanger would be a one off – or at least he’d be more careful for a month or two.

    It’s becoming harder and harder to believe that this guy is in his right mind.

    scrubone (c3104f)

  13. Yeah, Syeve57, let them tell us all about it.

    CNS News reports since the Paris terror attacks on November 13, the State Department has admitted 132 Syrian refugees into the United States, and all 132 are Sunni Muslims.

    No Christian, Druze, Shi’ite, Alawite, or member of any other religious minority in Syria has been admitted over that period, according to data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center.

    The majority of the 132 Syrian refugees permitted to resettle in the U.S. since November 13 (72) are male, the minority female (60). Of the 132 total, 39 (29.5 percent) have been men between the ages of 14 and 50.

    Another 53 (40 percent) are children aged under 14, of whom 30 are males and 23 females.

    The Paris terror attacks, which killed 130 people and were claimed by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL), brought fresh scrutiny onto the issue of refugees from the Syrian conflict, amid concerns the terrorist group was seeking to infiltrate Western countries through refugee settlement programs.

    The Refugee Processing Center admission figures since the attacks in Paris continue a trend evident since the start of the current fiscal year, on October 1. President Obama plans to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. during fiscal year 2016. (How can that be if it “takes at least two years to vet a refugee”? How could they “be arriving” that fast? Could the lying leftists be lying again?)

    Since FY2016 began two months ago, 423 Syrian refugees have been admitted into the U.S., of whom 418 (98.8 percent) were Sunni Muslims. The remaining five (1.2 percent) were Christians – three Catholic, one Orthodox and one simply described as “Christian.”

    Tell me Steve57, do we have any reason to trust these numbers or trust these people? Every American who is in favor of bringing in these moslem “refugees” ( read: fifth column) should be required to take a family into their own homes, feed, clothe, shelter and pay their education and medical costs and should one of these so-called refugees commit a crime the sponsoring leftist family should pay the fine and do the time. After all, that’s exactly what they want and demand the rest of us do. Not only do the leftist love to spend other people’s money they love to sacrifice other people’s live for their idiotic ideas too.

  14. And here is the reason they send the women and children first:

  15. “After all, that’s exactly what they want and demand the rest of us do.”

    – Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie

    I dare you to provide one example of someone demanding that anyone “take a family into their own homes, feed, clothe, shelter and pay their education and medical costs” and that the host family “pay the fines and do the time” for offenses committed by the refugee family.

    Pretty sure that’s all in your head, dude.

    Leviticus (f9a067)

  16. As usual, looking for a fight instead of thinking with whatever brain you have, you miss the point. By virtue of leftists wanting to bring these supposed refugees into my country, they want me to pay for their upkeep and be their victims should they commit acts of crime or terror. (Oh yeah. Syrians commit crimes too). You really can’t be so thick you actually thought I meant they literally “want and demand the rest of us” to bring them into our abodes. Did you?

    You do understand the United States is our home?
    You also understand providing food, clothing, shelter, education and health care by using our tax money is making us pay for and support them, don’t you?
    And I’m sure you understand when they expose any American to the possibility of crime and terror they risk all Americans to such and when it happens, as it will, it will be our blood shed and our loved ones dead.

    If you have any other questions about using comparisons, an instance, case, exemplar, illustration or representation about this let me know, I will promptly ignore it.

    Colonel Haiku (933076)

  20. He calls it a mass shooting. Not sure if that’s right – there have to be 4 deaths for it to count as such.

    That’s how the left can claim that “a good guy with a gun” has never stopped a mass shooting. Because the good guy is so much quicker than the police, and the guy generally shoots 3 at most.

    What made it more amusing is that Europe had just had its first female suicide bomber.

    No, it didn’t. That’s wrong. The police corrected that account. They found a third body, and they concluded that it was him who had exploded a suicide vest, and not the cousin/common law wife of terrorist Abdelhamid Abaaoud.

    That said, theer are female suicide bombers. Children, too, and donkeys.

    In Beirut, by the way, one man heorcally saw a suicide bomnber getting ready and he jumped on him. The bomber blew himself up and killed also a 3rd suicide bimber who was too close to him. They later found the unexploded vest.

  26. Tell me Steve57, do we have any reason to trust these numbers or trust these people?…

    Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie™ (f4eb27) — 12/1/2015 @ 11:30 am

    Oh, the numbers are fine. At least as far as there being hardly any Christians or other religious minorities. There’s a reason for that, and because of that reason we can’t trust any of these people. By “these people” I mean both the Obama administration and anyone associated with it, and these refugees.

    The Obama administration practices what on its face looks like an entirely fair, evenhanded process. Everyone who wants to emigrate as a refugee has to register with the UN High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) and go through their process which can take as short as 18 months but usually at least 24 months and sometimes up to five years.

    So, OK, everybody goes through the same process, right? What could be wrong with that?

    This. The UN refugee camps are remote. And like any prison they’re really run by gangs. Only these gangs include ISIS, other Islamist militias, Islamist crime gangs running prostitutes, etc. The very people the religious minorities are fleeing from. Not like the Muslims all have it easy, many of the militias make them swear loyalty to the Islamic State and otherwise make life hard on ordinary Muslims. But for ordinary Muslims life is only hard. For the religious minorities life in the UN camps is positively lethal. So they flee to the cities and shelter with family or friends if they have any, or at camps on church grounds or facilities provided by Christian relief organizations if they don’t.

    That’s why so few Christians of any stripe are coming through, and almost no Yazidis. The UN classifies them as “urban refugees.” The UN doesn’t provide services to them, they still have to travel to the camps to access UN services if they want to emigrate even if they’re not staying in the camps. And, as I said, the camps are remote. It’s impossible.

    I normally have no use for the Archbishop of Canterbury but he says almost the same thing
    here.

    …The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby while speaking at the House of Lords last week, said, “Within the camps there is significant intimidation and radicalisation, and many particularly of the Christian population who have been forced to flee are unable to be in the camps.”

    …On the other hand, while meeting with David Cameron last week, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby explained that his policy is running the risk of excluding approximately all Christians from the asylum programme. The main reason being the fact that Christians have not gone to the refugee camps; because they are frightened that the Islamic State might target them inside the refugee camps…

    – See more at: http://www.christiansinpakistan.com/uks-refugee-policy-discriminates-against-syrian-christian-refugees-archbishop-of-canterbury-forewarns/#sthash.ZuBQN65n.dpuf

    Charmingly, the Archbishop says that the Cameron government is inadvertently discriminating against Christians. Perhaps so, but I can’t delude myself that Prom Queen’s policy is anything but deliberate. I have several reason for that which I can go into later.

    Christians and religious minorities continue to be terrorized if not actually beaten in refugee camps in Europe now. Things are so bad that the German police union recommended (and I believe the government has taken the step) segregating the refugees by religion. Otherwise the police can’t guarantee the religious minorities’ safety. Those working with the refugees know and will tell you, even if the Merkel government tries to hush it up, that these refugees are bringing all their sectarian hostility with them.

    These refugees may not be ISIS, but they are for the most part very radicalized Muslims. When they terrorize the few religious minorities in their midst they go out of their way to remind them that while the Germans and other Europeans may have their laws now, they are bringing Sharia with them and the Christians haven’t escaped that.

    And while they may not be ISIS, a lot of them are very fond of ISIS. These are the latest opinion poll numbers of Syrian refugees that I’ve found. They’re from the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies at the Doha Institute in Qatar. They don’t give a date, but it may be just over a year old at most.

    http://english.dohainstitute.org/file/Get/40ebdf12-8960-4d18-8088-7c8a077e522e

    It’s all worth perusing but I’d like to draw your particular attention to figure 11 on page 19. Only in the Palestinian territories will you find a higher overall approval rating for ISIS than among the the Syrian refugees. The refugees promise to be very fertile ground for further radicalization and recruitment. This is why the Gulf states, Kuwait, the Saudis won’t take them. Saudi Arabia could easily take 100k tomorrow. They already have the housing for them. The air conditioned and heated permanent tent city at Mecca for the Hajj. But they’re not stupid. Stupid, they leave to us.

    This is what Obama is bringing in. Knowingly.

    Steve57 (a13395)

  27. You just don’t understand. He is saying that mass shootings are part of our culture, and that when the French do so they are committing an act of appropriating Western Culture that is too far west for them.
