Underbelly of American politics reacts to Obama’s emotional remarks on school tragedy
In the wake of yesterday’s shooting incident at an elementary school in Connecticut, President Obama offered a few heartfelt and tearful remarks that were carried live on television across the nation (see HERE).
Most Americans, no doubt, shared the president’s sentiments.
But at least a few people didn’t. Notable among these was pseudo-macho right-wing blogger and filmmaker Pat Dollard (above), who tweeted this message:
“OBAMA FAKED TEARS RIGHT NOW TO BACK HIS SEIZING OF YOUR GUNS.”
Dollard’s Twitter followers responded in kind. A few examples:
–”I thought I was going to puke listening to Obummer’s fake speech on the shooting.”
–”He is the most plastic, inhuman man I have ever seen. . . taking advantage of tragedy for political expediency.”
–”What pissed me off the most was the single tear to wipe away for a NY Times cover picture. . . he has no shame, and no honor.”
–”Obama Wants sympathy for Gun Laws!!FAKE!!”
–”The only life he values is his political life – couldn’t care less about the safety of citizens.”
–”I never saw tears nor watery eyes yet he kept wiping at his eyes…weird. He is secretly gleeful now hoping to disarm America!”
–” I’ve been saying tht [sic] since this whole mess started. Don’t put it past this admin to have orchestrated sum [sic] of these…”
–”Get armed America!”
–”He will appear most sincere when he’s about to fleece his victim, like any good con-man.”
