Sarah Palin and Donald Trump Use Death of 50 for Political Purposes!

Sarah Palin and Donald Trump have demonstrated once again a willingness to use any tragedy for political purposes.  Palin did a long interview on Breitbart News, and posted a link on her Facebook page, condemning President Obama and blaming him for the terrorist attack in Orlando.  She also used this deadly attack as an excuse to condemn Paul Ryan, the leader of the Republican Party.  Donald Trump used the massacre as an example of why we should violate the U.S. Constitution and ban a religious group from the country.

 

It is important to realize that:

  1.  Trump and Palin have totally failed to express any sympathy for the victims and/or their families.
  2. Trump and Palin have failed to express any outrage that it was a gay bar that was targeted.
  3. Trump and Palin have failed to mention that it was an assault weapon that was used by the terrorist to kill so many so fast.
  4. Trump and Palin failed to mention that the club had an armed guard who engaged the gunman.  It was after the officer “engaged” the gunman that he took hostages.  Clearly the fact that it was an assault weapon used by the terrorist, resulted in a dramatic disadvantage for the officer attempting to protect the victims.

However the most outrageously misleading suggestion by Trump and Palin is that this tragedy would not have happened if Obama had banned muslim immigrants.  The gunman in the Orlando massacre was Omar Mateen.  He was a 29-year-old security guard who was born in New York to Afghan parents.   Omar was an American citizen, BORN IN AMERICA.

Mr. Mateen was born in 1987, during the Ronald Reagan administration.

If there is one President Sarah Palin has hailed as the President she most admires,it is Ronald Reagan.  Reagan served from ’81-’89.  It is not known when Omar’s parents immigrated, but it seems likely it was during the Reagan administration.  Because Omar was a 29 year old American citizen, a tighter ban on Muslim immigrants during the Obama administration would have made no difference on the ability of Omar to inflict this horrendous carnage.     Obama has called for stricter gun control laws.

 

Yet Palin ignores the fact that the extent of the carnage inflicted was the result of the use of an assault weapon.

Sarah Palin has marketed herself as an outspoken advocate of guns.  She was given an assault weapon by the NRA as a “tribute” to her.

Track’s recent incident of domestic violence proved that the Palins keep assault weapons in the house.  Sarah had the audacity to suggest that Track committed domestic violence as a result of PTSD, and it was Obama’s fault.  It has been shown that Track did not see combat, and instead drove a jeep. However if he had PTSD, why would his mother allow assault weapons in the house?

And if Palin is so concerned about her son’s well-being, maybe instead of complaining about what’s happening in Washington, she could keep an eye on the assault weapons and alcohol situation under her own roof.

Trump has been equally outspoken in his advocacy of guns.

Trump argued that the recent massacre in Paris would have “played out differentlywith the bullets flying in the other direction.”

“The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too.”

Trump said there’s another way to fight crime-by empowering “law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves.”

“Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like “assault weapons”, “military-style weapons” and “high capacity magazines” to confuse people.”

“If goodpeople had guns in Paris or San Bernardino…you would have had bullets going in the opposite direction and believe me the carnage would not have been the same.” (Forbes reporting on the endorsement of Trump by the NRA)

 

However in his 2000 book, “The America We Deserve” Trump  said: “I support the ban on assault weapons and I support slightly longer waiting periods to purchase a gun.

Today Trump says:  “Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, …”

The only thing Trump was right about was a stricter control over assault weapons.  Sarah Palin was never right about anything.

  2. How do we make their evil prattle GO away? How?
    I suppose it is rather like trying to pray the “gay” away.
    Won’t happen.
    The best revenge on these two miscreants is gun regulation. That will somewhat even the score for those Repubs who killl assault rifle legislation, accept NRA money and pray for the victims.
    Thank you, Malia, for staying in the ring.

  3. This tragedy highlights three domestic problems in our society that came together: mental illness, homophobia and easy access to assault rifles. In this instance, there was an additional element of a fruitcake who had a desire to belong to a militant Islamic organization (though it appears he supported both Sunni and Shia terrorists!).

    Trump and Palin would have us believe that turning their animosity towards one religion will fix everything, but here’s the sad thing: we are doing nothing about keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill (OR out of the hands of those on the no-fly list because the NRA has been successful there too).

    We are in for a long, sad era of domestic violence if we don’t take care of these domestic issues — and tell Trump and Palin to go back into the swamps from which they came.

  4. Trump and Palin are cowards. I have never seen these two narcissists ever do anything other than try to take tragedies and benefit from them. They are sickening. They don’t have the guts or even care a whit about the victims. If they did, they would take the time to meet with victims such as the Sandy Hook parents and survivors and families of the victims in Orlando. Our president meets with the survivors and the families of victims because he ahs compassion. Palin and Trump have no compassion. I wonder how they would feel if it were their family memebers that were shot? They are pathetic excuses for moral human beings. They have no morality and no ethics.

  5. Best result of the mindless comments, Trump was fact checked by the news media on the “thousands of Tweets” congratulating him. Actual count was 4 (four).

    Trump and Palin have a big problem with home grown terrorists and immigration. Trump forgets he is the same as the Middle Eastern Americans. Trump came from the home of The Kaiser and The Fuhrer, our enemy in WWI and WWII.
