“Props”: Obama Will Use Children as Political ‘Human Shields’ as He Moves to Attack the 2nd Amendment
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this afternoon that President Obama will unveil a “concrete package” of gun control proposals including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing loopholes on background checks including potential executive orders immediately restricting gun rights.
Carney said that the president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden as well as children who wrote to the president after the Newtown shootings.
“They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents,” Carney confirmed.
The press conference will take place Wednesday at 11:45 a.m.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly broke the news during her broadcast Tuesday, and reaction was swift and fierce from across the Internet…
Kelly read her Twitter feed to get immediate reaction to Carney’s remarks.
“[People are] calling it disgusting, calling it shameless, one person pointing out that…those who feel differently than the president should have their own news conference with children whose lives were saved by guns.”
The Washington Examiner reports that “White House officials believe that moving swiftly on gun proposals at a national level, before the shock over the Newtown shooting fades”, gives Obama the best chance to get his proposals through Congress.
So emotional manipulation and children-as-propaganda – that is what Obama will use to try and force radical gun right restrictions down America’s throat.
As former Obama Chief of Staff and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel infamously said: “Never let a good crisis go to waste“.
Or as Megyn Kelly said: “Disgusting“.
