It’s come to this: White House releases videos of young kids asking Obama for more gun control

posted at 7:11 pm on January 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

Kevin Williamson on the histrionic presidency:

You may agree 100 percent with the president’s position on gun control, but his stagey histrionics, his endless reliance upon human props, his cheap sloganeering, his emotionally driven hectoring: all of that bespeaks a very deep contempt for his audience, which is the American people. If he really believes that surrounding himself with adorable little tots is a substitute for substantive arguments for well-thought-out policy proposals, he thinks that the people — you people — are a bunch of rubes. Unhappily, 51 percent of the American people are happy to endorse his low view of them. There is something peculiar to political enthusiasts, a phenomenon I observed at both conventions this year: People in political audiences know that they are being manipulated, cynically and professionally — and they enjoy it. Obama’s admirers look up to him because he looks down on them, not in spite of the fact. There is something more at play than the mere admiration of stagecraft…

The magic of theater is that is has the power to overwhelm thought: For a moment, you forget that you are watching actors reciting lines that they have memorized and making scripted movements, and you are taken into the world of the play. Obama’s politics of histrionics — the little children, the Sandra Flukes, the imperial stage dressing — also is conceived with the goal of overwhelming thought. That tells you something about the president and what he stands for. The continued success of this traveling medicine show of a presidency tells you something about the American people.

He wrote that yesterday, not knowing that the White House was hours away from rolling out video of child props actually reciting lines. (It was thoughtful of them to include the P.S. from the little boy in blue about Obama doing his best.) The clips are another example of O being more aggressive in pushing his agenda in his second term, which will be egged on by a media that’s eager to see some fightin’ liberalism in the Oval Office, Josiah-Bartlet-style. I think there’s more to this than just that, though: One of the reasons he’s relying so heavily on kids, I suspect, is because he knows gun control is going nowhere in Congress. Less than 40 percent of the public thinks new laws will stop gun violence; Senate Democrats from red states are already headed for the exits. Obama can’t do much legislatively for his base here but he can, at least, reassure them that they’re morally superior to the opposition and that they, despite their entrenched, passionate support for abortion rights, care about The Children in a way conservatives never will. In fact, I’d bet cash money that there’ll be response ads from conservative groups aping the format of these on other issues that don’t work out as well for Democrats. The national debt is an obvious area to be mined, but it’d be just adorable to see a two- or three-year-old asking “Mistah Pwesident” to discontinue his support for infanticide. For the children. Pwetty pweeze?

The money line here from the little girl in red, summing up liberal ambitions eloquently: “No guns, no guns, no guns, no guns.” Exit question for Chris Christie: While you’re busy grandstanding about that NRA ad for your blue-state audience, any thoughts on Obama’s use of kids to carry his water agenda-wise? I vaguely recall you goofing on teachers’ union stooges who are quick to enlist kids when arguing that pay cuts for public-school teachers will damage their education. Okay to do that sort of thing on an issue where you agree with O?

Why did it take the deaths of WHITE children in a posh area of Connecticut to get Obama motivated to act on guns???????

512 people, overwhelmingly minorities, were murdered in Chicago last years.

In 2011:

There were 12,664 homicides.

8,583 (67.8%) were committed with firearms.

Of the 8,583:

6,220 (72.5%) were committed with handguns.

323 (3.8%) were committed with rifles.

356 (4.2%) were committed with shotguns.

97 (1.1%) were committed with “other guns.”

1,587 (18.5%) were committed with “firearms, type not stated.”

A new AWB would not affect the overwhelming majority of murders committed with firearms.

According to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, 93% of all firearms used in criminal acts are obtained illegally, ie, on the street, through theft, etc. Thus, even if we had universal background checks, it would only affect 7% of the guns used in the commission of criminal acts.

I could handle Obama winning the first “American Idol” presidency back in ’08, running a campaign on cheap sloganeering, while never offering any specifics.

I could handle Obama winning his 2nd term based on cheap shots, lies, blaming everyone before him, the weather (earthquakes and hurricanes), Europe’s financial crisis, etc. while never offering any specifics.

Using kids the way Stalin and Hitler though? I’m ready to puke.

In 2011, the total number of gun-related deaths was 8,583.

Taken by itself, out of context, that number seems overwhelming. But taken in the context of overall deaths in America from–including natural causes–that number represents only .34 percent of all deaths for that year.

In other words, the percentage of deaths that were gun-related in 2011 does not even equal half of one percent of the 2,513,171 overall deaths for that year.

And if you really want to see how exaggerated the current anti-”assault rifle” rhetoric is, just look at 2011 numbers for the percentage of rifle-related deaths.

That figure is .012% of the overall deaths in America in 2011.

Meanwhile, the percentage of overall deaths that were the result of falling off things like rocks and ladders was 1%, or nearly three times the percentage of deaths that were gun-related: 26,631 versus 8,583.

Gun-related deaths represented only 0.34% of all deaths in America 2011. If the left wants us to feel safer, maybe they need to start banning ladders instead of guns.

This is the same President who sold guns to Mexican drug lords with the intent to increase gun violence so he could use that gun violence to destroy our second amendment!

Well, they do sound more intelligent than your average Obama supporter, but I don’t think I will be taking advice about complex issues from children.

The left is restricted by laws, and by what they can get away with, but there simply is no bottom to how low they will sink if they believe they will get away with it.

You won’t see the father and son that were on Hannity’s radio show today. Two years ago the son, aged 15 at the time, and his younger sister were alone in the house when two thugs broke in. Kid grabs Dad’s AR and wounds one them. Both were caught. Dad was a deputy sheriff who showed him how to use guns. I remember this because it was in the Houston area. But it would dillute the narrative and we can’t have that.

You are just, plain wrong and Christie is a despicable POS who needs to be washed away by a superstorm. The difference in what is okay for the King Admiral Emperor Barakarno’s daughters and what is okay for the helots’ kids is perfectly relevant in this debate.

If you don’t like Barakarno’s daughters being brought into national debates then you shoudl take it up with the Indonesian and his beard as they use their own kids for actual props with almost every issue – whereas in this case the treatment afforded the kids versus “regular folks” is germane and serious. The ad is not about their kids but about the security they are happy to have around their own kids. It’s about Barky and the beard, not the kids.

This ain’t rocket science. Heck, it ain’t even model rocket science.

The mini-moochers were not mentioned in the ad. The school security at their school was. The NRA asked a valid question- why do the liberal elite students of Sidwell Friends get the kind of security the gun-haters refuse to afford those attending public schools.

But let’s get to the real point here as you lie and pretend to be pro-Second Amendment and a member of the NRA. No outrage for the way the White House is using these children as props in Hitler-like propaganda? It seems to me even a dim bulb like you would understand that if the mere mention of the mini-moochers is wrong these White House ads are even more wrong. Effing hypocrite.

Milking the deaths of these children for the advancement of his political agenda is nauseating, to say the least. I never liked the president, never voted for him, think of him as incompetent and borderline insane, not to mention narcissistic, but I never before this week considered him to be a wretched, despicable lowlife, able to stoop to the lowest levels imaginable to get what he wants. And yet he continues, even after he’s already made his case. Un. Friggin. Believable. I don’t know how I’ll cope with 4 more years of this fraud.

a very deep contempt for his audience, which is the American people

If this is the case, then he’s in good company at HA, where calling the electorate dumba##es is a daily fixation.

For the president and his minions its only about politics, nothing else matters, no propriety shall deter the wanton creeping slime of liberalism, not even for children.

Or why the yellow-bellied weasel Bad Private thinks he has the authority to tell me to ignore murder – and then his puppetmasters pull crap like THIS to highlight their hypocrisy. If anything I should be telling him to crawl under a rock and he should obey!

20 years from that kid in the blue shirt will either be embarrassed to tears that he did this or he will be an Obersturmführer in charge of a squad of demorat brownshirts.

Either that or proud as punch that he got his foot in the door early on as a good little Obamabot. Although quite honestly I doubt anyone will remember these ads 20 years from now.

i just cannot even… i hate obama. he’s disgusting, i hate him. he’s an a**hole, he truly is.

I hate our president.

ThePrez on January 17, 2013 at 7:16 PM

first comment on the thread… captured my thoughts perfectly.

and i don’t say “hate” to a person often. it’s really rare that i do that.

he is ugly and disgusting, for using children the way he is. they’re just kids. they think “guns are bad” and they don’t understand why they’re necessary. the last one, julia, (haha yep, her names’ JULIA!!) kinda understood though: she said guns should only be used when someone else is about to get hurt. she’s right but still, she’s just a kid and does not fully understand the issue.

it’s so easy to simplify the issue into “guns are bad.” and of course kids will believe it. people of all ages believe it. even i used to believe it. yes i used to be FOR more gun control laws. but then i learned more about the issue.

obama is so manipulative and dishonest… i am ashamed that my country has an a-hole like him as president.

Sachiko on January 17, 2013 at 7:52 PM

AND YET…..the pathetic gop leadership can’t figure out how to combat this? or even call him out on it?

Is there ANYONE, ANYONE sane on this site that thinks that the current gop leadership is capable of successfully confronting this disgrace to the nation?

The inference…………….republicans HATE CHILDREN.

We have a Dictator in the making in this country. If you can’t see that you would deny it when the oven doors shut behind you.

Followed by letters asking for reduced prices on candy, the elimination of math class (to be replaced by second recess) and the abolition of all forced nap times.

If their demands aren’t met, they intend to start with foot stomping and escalate to holding their breath until their faces turn blue.

When I was a little kid I wanted my parents to trade my toy Uzi in for a real Uzi…preferably kid-sized and in a girly color.
I wanted it-but wanting it didn’t necessarily(in that case, didn’t PERIOD!)make it a good idea. See where I’m going with this?

And screaming “Racist!” and “bigot!” and “tyranny!”…

Nevermind that if they met a real loud-and-proud racist or bigot or tyrant in a back alley, they’d run crying for mommy.

Obama’s kids shouldn’t even be mentioned in that NRA ad like they were. JetBoy on January 17, 2013 at 7:30 PM

Wrong. Call the hypocrite out on his grandstanding. The groups that scream about wanting to rid the serfs of our right to defend are surrounded by………GUNS.

If we could only marshal 100,000 people every place he goes to protest the 5 million murdered in the womb children that have died on his watch that would be better.

Then NRA ad was effective and all the right people are screaming about it.

My grandmother told me that phrase meant back in the days when kids could run and play and yell outside, fine. But the minute you went inside, you sat on your little chair and SHUT UP.

Unfortunately so many modern children have no real space to run and play because they live in a dinky apartment, or can’t go out because the immediate neighborhood is too dangerous. IMHO that’s not healthy at all.

MelonCollie on January 17, 2013 at 7:59 PM

It will happen. They have targeted us for death because we will not comply. The sun has set and darkness is starting to envelop the land, a darkness powered by the evil forces of Satan that took over the Democrat party and turned it into another Nazi Party – but a genuine version powered by hate, murder and a thirst for power.

America, RIP.
