“Now is the time for mourning and for healing, but let’s be clear,” he declared “At some point, we, as a country, will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency. And it is in our power to do something about it.”
Quote from President Obama regarding the cowardly attack in Charleston
This kind of violence has occurred in many Western countries. Perhaps he has forgotten the Islamic attacks in France? The only thing that stopped the recent attacks in Canada from becoming mass murders was the death of the attackers. Why does anyone listen to him? Even in grief, he derogates the country he leads.
Rhetoric is fine, but please get your facts straight.
