FAKER! Obama fakes tears to invoke emotions while stripping Americans of liberties


(NaturalNews) They call him "No Drama Obama" and "Mr. Cool" for his low-key, low-volume demeanor. But when it comes to chipping away at a fundamental American right, the president gets downright emotional.

During a Jan. 5 press conference to both announce new constitutionally questionable executive gun control actions and to defend them, the president went all out in creating just the right atmosphere. It was quite the political theater.

He invited, then acknowledged, victims of gun violence.

"Many have had to learn to live with a disability, or learned to live without the love of their life. A number of those people are here today. They can tell you some stories," he said. "In this room right here, there are a lot of stories. There's a lot of heartache. There's a lot of resilience, there's a lot of strength, but there's also a lot of pain. And this is just a small sample."

The various acts of Obama's political theater

As reported by Politico, in invoked seemingly rational but impossible-to-prove generalities:

Despite the "general consensus" for what needs to be done, and support from many gun owners, Obama acknowledged gridlock.

He shamed his detractors and impugned their motives by claiming that his are being impugned (this is how a Marxist describes legitimate political opposition to policy).

"I'm not on the ballot again. I'm not looking to score some points. I think we can disagree without impugning other people's motives or without being disagreeable," he said. "But we do have to feel a sense of urgency about it. In Dr. King's words, we need to feel the 'fierce urgency of now.' Because people are dying. And the constant excuses for inaction no longer do, no longer suffice. That's why we're here today. Not to debate the last mass shooting, but to do something to try to prevent the next one."

As if political opponents don't want to prevent future mass shootings.

He then played the "expert" card.

"No matter how many times people try to twist my words around, I taught constitutional law, I know a little bit about this. I get it," he said. "But I also believe that we can find ways to reduce gun violence consistent with the Second Amendment."

Next, the false choice. "We do not have to accept this carnage as the price of freedom."

Then, he played the role of innocent bystander. As reported by Politico:

"Fort Hood, Binghamton, Aurora, Oak Creek, Newtown, the Navy Yard, Santa Barbara, Charleston, San Bernardino. Too many," Obama said, ticking through a list of mass shootings since the 2011 Tucson shooting that killed six and injured more than a dozen more, including former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was in attendance in the East Room.

[The legacy media should have really been asking the question long ago about why so much "carnage" on Obama's watch, but that doesn't fit with the facts – that mass shootings are still very rare and deaths by firearm are 2–1 suicides over homicides, according to a 2014 University of California, Davis, study.]

Then, the coup de grace – the tug at the heartstrings to appeal to emotion, rather than reason. Again, Politico:

The president ran through a list of mass shootings that have happened during his time in office, and teared up as he recalled the schoolchildren gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012.

"First graders in Newtown. First graders," Obama said, pausing to collect himself. "Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad..."

Typical lamestream media hypocrisy gives the president a pass – again

Who, but the coldest of cold Americans (and conservatives, of course) could oppose any new measures aimed at protecting "The Children" (nearly 700,000 of whom were murdered in the womb in 2012, the latest year data is available, according to the CDC).

Yes, it was great political theater, and Obama's performance will go largely unchallenged in the lamestream media because they agree with him that the Second Amendment is more of a constitutional suggestion than a hard-and-fast right.

You have to wonder, though – would the same lamestream media sit idly by if the president had showed up on the dais Tuesday to announce sensible new restrictions eroding the First Amendment's freedom of speech protections?

Oh, wait. The lamestreams actually have complained about that.
