Mark Levin: Why Did Obama Omit Ft. Hood Shooting?

Mark Levin noted that while speaking in Newtown, CT over the weekend President Obama failed to mention a mass killing that happened since he’s been president – Ft. Hood.

Over the weekend, the president was speaking and, really, when he got to his politics it was just stomach turning. There he is, in the middle of that little town … and he named four instances in where there were, what, massacres? But he left one out. I immediately realized — and my brother emailed me too — what happened to Fort Hood? How come he didn’t mention Fort Hood? How come Obama did not mention Fort Hood where 13 human beings were slaughtered and there were several survivors. Because, ladies and gentlemen, first of all, Fort Hood is a military enclave, it’s a base. You can’t have more control than that.

Number two, they had all kinds of rules of who can carry weapons and who can’t there. And fortunately, a lot of men and women in uniform aren’t allowed to carry weapons unless they’re on duty. All kinds of gun control on that base.

But, number three, it had nothing to do with gun control. It had everything to do with political correctness run amok, costing the lives of 13 human beings.

    Statistics on Chicago:

    517 homicides.
    2,597 shootings.
    62 children aged 18 and under murdered.
    446 children aged 18 and under shot.
    78% of Chicago’s homicide victims (1st six months) were black.
    “Assault weapons” are banned in Cook county.
    Chicago has banned all gun sales in the city.
    Conceal carry is illegal in Illinois.
    Guns must be registered, and for handguns a safety course is required. Ex-felons cannot own handguns, and people convicted of misdemeanors are restricted for five years.

    Ah, this strict gun control is certainly working in Chicago – a fact I really don’t see trumpeted by liberals.

    Yep, not one peep from any of the anti-gun crowd on that one! Find BFH’s article on the Dhimmi Zone and you get a picture of what is really going on here.

    Ft Hood is not and never was part of the narrative. Remember that the same Democrat-Media complex who repeatedly insisted that we should not “rush to judgement” over Hassan later insisted within hours that Jared Loughner had been encouraged by a “climate of violent rhetoric” created by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement.

    To be blunt, Ft Hood was the mass shooting the media would rather not have covered.

    You can also bet that with the shootings at Sandy Hook, the media tried desperately to tie Adam Lanza to some “far right” ideology. It obviously didn’t work, so they’re just heading off to the “gun control NOW!” bullshit they usually engage in.

    “Now leave me alone! I’m still trying to forget about Fast and Furious and that Benghazi thing!”

    Wasn’t sure anyone remembered those.
    Newton has been a convenient diversion(planned?).

    Now for Obama’s next trick. Politic us right out of our guns. Prick.

    Every newscast leads with gun control, giving at least twice the time and first comment to communists.

    The fix is in. The fight is on.

    The biggest problem in our country is that there is way too much politics in the political parties.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe we desperately need term limits.

    Obama has no feelings about Americans soldiers dying. This is something to bring up to back up an argument that Obama’s speech about the grade school massacre was pure politics.

    Just show some videos of Obama reacting to Ft Hood and and to 9/11 when she showed zero emotions for American lives lost

    I noticed that shit when I thumbed through the propaganda news channels this morning — fuckers are pushing it real hard, even showing all the celebrities who were shot, tearjerking music playing in the background. But they didn’t mention anything about the way that O.J. Simpson’s wife was murdered. You think maybe they prefer that method to a bullet? That’s exactly what they will get if they take guns out of the hands of the defenders and somehow manage to miraculously get the real killer criminals to give up their guns too.
