The tragedy in Texas is one that will be remembered for a long time. It’s the most recent example of a long-running problem in our country.

When I was younger, the only school shooting I was aware of was Columbine, which occurred when I was in the final year of middle school, if my memory serves me correctly. Before that, I had never even heard of a school shooting.

Since then, we have had a number of others. Since then, we’ve had several others. Not quite the 200 or so that the liberal media wants to classify as a school shooting, but still too many. Regardless of the number, the fact that they are increasing is undeniable.

Now is a time that we should mourn and grieve with those who are grieving. The spotlight is on them at the moment, not that they want it or anything, but they deserve our prayers and attention right now.

Barack Obama, however, thinks differently and instead of taking time to grieve with these families right now, he decided to shift the attention to George Floyd who died two years ago.

“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer,” Obama tweeted. “His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.”

People came out of the woodworks to slam Obama for this tasteless tweet:

  • Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire: “What in the world does the former have to do with the latter?”
  • Jason Whitlock, The Blaze: “Let’s stand George Floyd on the dead bodies of slaughtered children. This is one of the worst tweets in history.”
  • Harry Khachatrian, The Washington Examiner: “Innocent children gunned down in an elementary school is absolutely not comparable to a criminal being wrongly killed by police mid-arrest.”
  • Kira Davis, political commentator: “Not a single grieving parent today gives a rip about what happened to Floyd or anyone right now. For crying out loud. This is not the time to be advertising for your favorite activist group. How utterly vile.”
  • Harrison Fields, communications director for Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL): “Despicable. Floyd had his moment, literally a summer of protest and anarchy devoted to his memory. The evil man that murdered him will spend the rest of his life in jail. Now is the time to remember the 22 innocent souls that were senselessly massacred in TX. When they go low?”
  • Gad Saad, professor: “Children, shmildren. Sure those kids died but let’s honor Floyd, a BLM icon. You are my president forever and I’m Canadian. Your ability to say nothing in such an articulate manner is inspiring. Thank you.”
  • Mike Cernovich, political commentator: “George Floyd robbed a pregnant woman at gun point. It’s not the same, you divisive psychopath.”
  • Christian Ziegler, Florida Republican Vice Chairman: “Quickest, weirdest and most insensitive Tweet Pivot I have seen. Obama turned the page on the children of Uvalde and moved the attention to George Floyd in less then 280 characters. I mean… couldn’t he have separated the two into 2 Tweets and waited 2 mins between both posts?”
  • Rebeccah Heinrichs, Hudson Institute: “Not his best. We’ve got a Mad Libs vibe on this one.”
  • Joel Pollak, Breitbart: “Why contrast these two events? Mark the memory of George Floyd without making it look like you resent the attention being paid to innocent children or heroic police. Tone deaf at best.”
  • Emmanuel Rincon, El American: “The families of more than 20 people (mostly children) killed yesterday do not deserve this disrespect. It would be good to respect their pain and not use this moment to stir up more hatred.”

But probably the best tweet I’ve seen in response to what he said, was this one from Seth Dillon:

  • It’s time for another election. The democraps HAVE to do SOMETHING to try to make conservatives, who are mostly Republicans, look bad so it’s time, once again, to start shooting people. Last week a grocery store in a state where people are not allowed to legally carry a firearm, this week a school (gun free zone) where the one hired to protect the children saw the ‘person’ with the gun and ran the other way (just like the cop did in Broward County, Florida). Parents begging for help, children begging for help and bought off cops standing with their hands in their pockets playing with themselves. When the parents tried to save their children themselves they were tased and arrested. I would spend the rest of my life in prison but there would have been some dead cops there as well as dead children. Gun control, IF it were carried out with the rules already on the books, would have stopped this when this ‘person’ KILLED his Grandmother and STOLE her vehicle. Gun control would have worked with the so-called red flag laws when this hoodlum bought, legally though they were, the FIRST gun and multiple hundreds of rounds of ammunition (and this ‘person’ with no job no less) much less the SECOND gun. Democraps don’t WANT to stop these senseless killings!!!! There are too many useful idiots in this country to let a bought and paid for crisis like these go to waste. What I said is not dis or misinformation. This happens EVERY election cycle. Or any other time they need to take the spotlight off some wrong the socialcommucRATS are doing.

    • I agree 100% and strongly suspect the dems aid these crazies with money and the how to. Reason ? Dems think (funny, right ?) the public will say……..Save us ! Not going to happen. We know the source of America’s problems. Great post !

  • How about there Kenyan?
    This time, not only did you step into it, you even decided to put your foot in your mouth!

    How’s all of that working out for you?

      • It’s the one’s like him that created a reason and place for the deriding name because he is the epitome of one and worse! What he actually is there are no words to describe other than it comes from hell! Which is where is is going for eternity; I’m 100% positive of that and have been for years!
        Now think of a good man and genuine human being like Dr. Ben Carson who has saved children throughout his career or Martin Luther King who actually stood for good and justice for all people! That impostor criminal was never truly deserving or elected for two terms as a US President; he was the next biggest and first fraud Illegitimate President in US history! He should be in prison already!

  • Is ANYONE surprised Obama praises a convicted felon?
    And WHEN will Dems get control of their baby libs who are doing most of these school shootings?

  • This should tell everyone everything they need to know about this fraud. Here is a leech who has never done anything to help anyone but himself. There is a special place in hell for him. Oh wait,he doesn’t believe in GOD or HELL. He’ll find out someday.

    • Fraud and evil are not even strong enough words to describe this inhuman creature! He started out with a net worth of just less than a 1 Mil when he stole into the office of POTUS and now for that so wonderful job he did as a “Public Servant” he has billions stashed away in hidden foreign accounts, nations that are sworn enemies of America just like he is!!! He shouldn’t even be free in America! Lock him up!

  • Consider the Source! The Community Organizer from Chicago Speaks! George Floyd was a criminal arrested for passing counterfeit bills as reported by the Press! He was not an Innocent Child in any way, shape or form. These children were murdered by an Evil Very Sick person.

    Remember George Floyd? I imagine most people want to forget him?

    • I actually had until this divisive racist twisted evil minion brought him up in this most horrible, inhuman and blasphemous way! Hell waits for this troll of Satan!

  • Obama was a loser as a POTUS, and he’s a loser in the life after the presidency. If he’s worried about the death of George Floyd, he’s a few years too late…If he’s still thinking about it, it just goes to show that he’s a twisted, warped individual who belongs with Bet O’Rourke!

  • Obummmma is SATAN in disguise . He is as evil as all the shooters that have ever taken so many innocent lives; and all he can do is give accolades to a two bit thug who was a drug user, a thief, criminal and a no account sub human. No, he shouldn’t have been killed as he was at the hands of the police, instead he should now be rotting in a prison for the rest of his miserable life !

    • Exactly and of course even that would be too kind for that degenerate sub-human troll but I know it is good that hell owns him now just like it will own Obama!

  • We had 8 years of his BS . I don’t think we need anymore. Why dose he keep sticking his nose in. Everyone knows who the president is and it’s not Biden or Obumer…

  • …”especially those who loved him.” A drug addled felon who never did anything in his life. And they make him a hero? Really?

  • Well leave it to Obama a former crack head to remember his brother crack head over the kids that were shot! Just more proof what an absolute retarded idiot the Democrats inflicted on America! Maybe he should just have stayed under his Porta Potty!

    • Him and at least a couple of dozen other traitors from his illegitimate evil former administration!

  • How do you describe America’s first Asian president? (His father was not Obama Sr., and that’s why he divorced BO’s mother, for adultery with Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo) Liar, callous, greedy nazi.

  • Obama is the dumbest shit I have ever experienced . This man is a thief like his vPrick brain dead Biden. He comes into power no back ground (community organizer , hustler fag he use to hang out in baptist church in basement with other fags ) he was our Pres someone to look up to. Now he owns 3 mansions , for a hustler he did oK. I want to Pugh when I think of this Scum bag.

  • Per G.A. Custer, “Always ride to the sound of the guns and attack!

    The events in Uvalde concluding with the briefings held on 5/26/ & 5/27 have once again made me hold my head in shame as a retired soldier/cop. I spent first 26 years of my life as a soldier charged with training/leading soldiers and cops in ground combat and specializing in counter-terrorism tactics (As an instructor in the Federal Civil Disobedience Orientation Program[SEADOC] spent many years teaching many senior level civilian police officers across this nation how to deal with special threats [shooters/bombers]); followed by a like number of years as a municipal police chief. Sadly, the briefings given on 5/26 and 5/27 by a senior officers from the Texas Department of Safety reinforced the reason I left government service rather than starting a one man war to negate as many self-serving/corrupt/incompetent/witless politicians and bureaucrats as one man could accomplish.

    First, both of the briefings were an admission that the responders to the shooting were not trained in proper/effective tactics and demonstrated a level of absolute cowardliness. As George A. Custer stated many years ago; “Always ride to the sound of the guns and attack!” When officers aggressively close in on a shooter’s position while trying to minimize collateral damage, the shooter is usually kept occupied defending his/her/its position rather than killing hostages. In short, basic tactics include occupying the shooter by attempting to engage him/her/it in conversation while the action team/other officers close in and shoot to kill (action team members/attacking officers do not talk, they act) at the first opportunity. Remember; “Wounded animals are still dangerous, dead ones not so much!”

    Second, stop blaming guns/ammo for killing people. Guns do not kill, people do! However, as a soldier/cop/Texan who has hunted game and/or men all over Texas, all three Americas, the Near/Middle/Far East, and Europe, I personally challenge any individual to demonstrate why one would use .223 or 5.56 super sonic ammo loaded in 10/20/30 round magazines, and fired from any semi-automatic type gun to hunt game. For the sake of the ladies and/or the wimps among you, I will just say as one who has personally shot men and seen many men hit by 5.56 super sonic ammo, that you do not want to shoot game with the same. The tissue and bone destruction is beyond most civilian’s imagination.

    In closing, I wish I had the authority to deal with any person who illegally or legally sells/provides any weapon to individuals without carefully checking their mental/criminal history. Farther more, I wish I had the authority to deal with those politicians and bureaucrats who stand in the way of providing/enforcing laws that keep guns (of any type) out of the hands of unqualified persons, and laws that provide for swift and proper punishment for those who violate the same.

    Have a nice day,

    Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

    • Thank you for your exemplary service and dedication over those many years as you really made a difference and we need so many more like you to accomplish the mission of preserving and protecting now more than ever before in America’s history! I’m so far removed from your knowledge, skill sets and experience in this arena but I know with my logic and wide range of life experiences that first in foremost neutralizing the threat is of paramount concern in such a situation and doing it as expeditiously or humanly possible, hopefully with highly qualified experts like you is of course preferable, but I do honestly believe if I were in that vicinity, just like the citizen that commandeered the barber’s shot gun, I would have found a way in minutes to get a bead on that evil wacko’s head and taken him out in a heartbeat with my only concern being to protect all those little babies in there and the teachers! I literally cry now thinking of this and how miserable and wrong it went down; just a totally unnecessary horrific tragedy and loss that is hurting me badly but must be crushing the life out of the families who lost these children! It’ like I feel as though I didn’t know any of those victims but I love them all and therein is my only solace as I know God Almighty loves them far beyond my human broken comprehension of absolute love; and they are in heaven so happy now!

      This country is a mess and far too many criminals are in positions of authority actively working on destroying all that is good; servants of the Devil. Soros should have been arrested, tried and even executed decades ago! Yet he is effectuating mayhem in America and not an enemy combatant of America? So it really is all about the money now? Money talks and bullshit like my rhetoric walks huh! Hell of a thing isn’t it!

      Again I’m no expert in these matters that you are so well versed in, but I do believe that if all of the truly good dedicated Americans like you were able to implement a massive national operational campaign, I mean a military action before it’s too late, America as the United States of America may still stand a chance of remaining United; because the way things look to me I don’t see much of a good future here anymore; probably not even the entire world!

      Again thank you and I truly am thankful for all of the great Americans like you that have kept America strong over the years!
      God bless you and yours!

      • You sir are a true patriot and I give thanks to AMIGHTY GOD for people like you, this Country needs more like you to help take back from the godless evil doers who seek to destroy America.

    • The real problem is there are too few of you! Now add in the judges who let criminals off with a slap on the wrist and politicians who make laws so the criminal can get off.

      Thank You for your service to this country.

  • Does anyone besides me think there should be a huge investigation into why all of a sudden the schools are being hit. Think some democrat’s are behind this to convince us we should outlaw guns. That is the only conclusion I can come by as it sure is odd the schools are being targeted.
