President Prop-aganda taps Newtown mom to push ‘gun responsibility reforms’ in weekly address

More exploitative political theater from President Prop-aganda.

Instead of delivering his usual weekly address, Obama turned over the mic to Francine Wheeler, mother of a 6-year-old boy who was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

As Rush Limbaugh said on Friday, “I think it’s shameless — shameful — this regime, the way they use victims, poor people, as props and pawns.”

The official White House transcript is titled “Weekly Address: Sandy Hook Victim’s Mother Calls for Commonsense Gun Responsibility Reforms.”

Note the prog language update: It’s no longer “gun control” or “commonsense gun laws”; It’s now “gun responsibility reforms.”

Wheeler also called on the nation to “do something.”

As always, that “something” is for legislators to pass a gun-grabbing bill.

When I packed for Washington on Monday, it looked like the Senate might not act at all. Then, after the President spoke in Hartford, and a dozen of us met with Senators to share our stories, more than two-thirds of the Senate voted to move forward.

But that’s only the start. They haven’t yet passed any bills that will help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. And a lot of people are fighting to make sure they never do.

Now is the time to act. Please join us. You can talk to your Senator, too. Or visit WhiteHouse.gov to find out how you can join the President and get involved.

    so much for vowing an oath to protect anything and everything that the Constitution stands for. waiting for the impeachment anvil to drop still. keep an eye out everyone they’re warming us up to the idea of slavery and we’re playing right into their hands.

    • OneThinDime

      Wish the anvil would drop but Boehner came out and said he will pass any law Obama wants by any means necessary, including gun control, amnesty, and Obama’s budget with $10 Trillion of deficit and $1 Trillion in take hikes, all before the $8.6 Trillion for illegal alien amnesty.

      Not while me & mine draw breath!

  • Miss Clairee

    These parents admitted on ’60 Minutes’ that the primary reason this tragedy happened was poor parenting on Nancy Lanza’s part (i.e. leaving the gun safe open and unlocked in Adam’s bedroom, letting him obsess over violent video games, etc, etc.) Bottom line, if this school had armed police officers (as my child’s school has had for many, many years) Adam Lanza would have been stopped before he had a chance to kill.

      Wasn’t CRAZY PERSON Adam Lanza’s criminal insanity the cause of
      the Sandy Hook Tragedy ? . . . ▲ Y E S

      • Miss Clairee

        …….in addition to Nancy Lanza’s bad parenting!

    • AaronHarrisinAlaska

      Wait, you say his mom had the safe unlocked. Not just unlocked but in his room? While I agree with you partially on armed guards you seem to be ignoring the fact that a mentally disturbed individual had UNRESTRICTED ACCESS TO FIRE ARMS. You pointed out exactly what could have prevented this tragedy and yet ignored it to push armed security. Are you dense?

      • Miss Clairee

        No, I did not ignore it. Poor parenting was indeed the major cause of this tragedy. And YES I stand by my statement that armed security WOULD have prevented so many deaths. What in my post is not clear to you? The Newtown community and the state of Connecticut could not change the fact that Nancy Lanza was a negligent and bad parent. The state and the Sandy Hook community however, could have paid armed police officers (as MY state and county do) and Adam Lanza would have been stopped. Nancy Lanza was a fool, but municipalities that don’t provide armed security at schools (particularly after Columbine) are negligent!

      • TocksNedlog

        And your proposed legislation that would have prevented the tragedy is WHAT?

      • OneThinDime

        I doubt what the government is disclosing, they have a vested interest in disarming law-abiding citizens that can stop their tyranny.

    • Saar

      They dont want to admit that the lack of a armed school guard- would have made the difference and saved lives. Their negligence in not wanting that protection in place – is what aided in the deaths. So instead they’ll allow them to become soulless pawns for political agendas.

  • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

    I’m sorry for their loss, but the more Obama uses Newtown families as props, because he can’t do it himself, the less I want to hear. For the children is not a phrase that should be coming from a man who voted YES to letting babies DIE, if they were born ALIVE, after a botched abortion.

          Yes it sickens me also. When I tell them the heart is beating after 4 weeks, and they are murdering an innocent life they try to turn the table about the right trying to restrict rights. No they could not show me in the bill of rights where abortion is legal.

    Bottom line, if the NRA voted for the lying piece of krap in the Whitehouse we wouldn’t even be having this overtly disingenuous demonization of guns in this country. Never mind that racist piece of garbage is still trying to make the righteous white Republican the deranged and evil face of all the senseless black, owebamao-supporting gun violence in this country …. unbelievable!

    The common thread of almost every mass shooting you can list is that the shooter decided at some point that going into the public arena to shoot multiple people, IN BROAD DAYLIGHT, was an OK thing to do.

    Most violent criminal activity takes place at night. The question that should be asked is why do these vermin do their deeds in the daytime? I don’t know, but I’m not hearing the question being asked.

    Gee, I guess Obama had lunch with Jay-Z and Beyonce (or some other important “presidential” function)- so he pushed this poor woman in front of the camera to be used as a political pawn. Connecticut already had an assault weapons ban and some of the toughest gun control laws in America, and it didn’t stop Lanza. The liberal fix to laws that don’t work is to expand the laws that didn’t work in the first place. Insanity…….

    • torpedoman2002

      I can understand why the government want Americans disarmed. They don’t want citizens armed when Obama decides the 2012 elections are invalid and tries to stay. Or he sets martial law just before the elections and has to “postpone the elections” until after the problem is solved. If people don’t believe me Bing Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro. One of the first things they did was ban weapons. Obama is following the dictators for life hand book to the letter. What I don’t understand is why citizens outside of government would want to ban guns? You need to look at the consequences of your actions. Ask yourselves why would the government want citizens unarmed. Make a pro and con list why government would do this. Be honest. You may not like the outcome. Yes I’m talking to you trolls.

  • Joe W.

    She ought to be ashamed of herself for allowing her to be Obama’s whore.

    • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

      She’s not ashamed. The thing you need to understand about liberal women in blue states is that they’d sell their firstborn for half Irish, half Kenyan “second first Black” president out of guilt for the African slave trade.

      I wonder what hurts them more…the loss of their child, or the wrongs the straight, well-to-do white man did in the past.

      I warned the Newtown families to stay out this and that they’d be fair game if they entered the political sphere, just like any American solider who uses their service record just to get on the doll.

      I’ll bring the proverbial hammer down on anyone or anything that threatens my freedom, and I’m sure you would too.

      I cannot even begin to tell you how selfish these Newtown families are, and suffering a loss gives no one the right to take away someone else’s freedom.

      Obama is a Narcissistic Sociopath. He has no shame. Only a mania for having things his way. If a child had been wounded and survived, I’ve no doubt Obama would use he or she as a prop to push his agenda. With or without the grieving parents’ permission.

  • AlCashier

    yes, WHAT ABOUT the BENGHAZI parents? we have absolutely NO sympathy left for those smiling obamademocrat Newtown parents, who are obviously being flattered, beguiled and spoiled by their obama-handlers. America has been losing children to violence for more than 234 years as a nation, and we’ve never demanded ALL Americans be disarmed over it. the loss of 20 children should not disarm an entire nation of its Second Amendment Right. and never forget: an American BABY is murdered every 94 SECONDS or LESS at obama’s Planned Parenthood clinics.

    I am willing to excuse this poor woman whose grief I cannot begin to imagine. And it’s natural for her to want to use that grief to “do something.”

    But for BHO to exploit her grief in this way is one of the most craven, cynical political stunts I’ve ever seen. He knows that any public criticism will be seen by the LIVs as further proof that the Repubs are “mean-spirited” and care more about “caving to the NRA” than caring “for the children.”

    And, to regain total control in 2014, it’s all about the LIVs.

    • OneThinDime

      I think it’s more guilt that she neglected the safety of her own child. That school had armed security paid for by a federal grant and these parents voted to discontinue it. I hope she lives with her guilt forever for trying to push it on hundreds of millions of innocent Americans.

    Personal opinion about Obama aside, I get tired of folks telling me if I can’t respect him, at least respect the office he holds. I’ve tried. But when he does stuff like this, turn his weekly radio address into a guest appearances to promote his agenda, I refuse to respect the office. His Admin. turned OUR White House website into an advertisement for his agenda, and now he hands the mic over to a citizen to make the President’s weekly radio announcement? Why should I respect the office he holds when he so clearly does not. The President of the United States weekly radio address is not a talk show and neither is it appropriate to have a guest host.

    Mrs. Wheeler, I am truly sorry you lost your little boy to the actions of a murderous coward. As a parent, I can only imagine what you’re going through.

    However, the Constitution of the United States guarantees its citizens the right to own guns. Limiting the rights of law abiding citizens won’t do anything to stop cowards from taking the lives of the innocent. The school where your son and the other children were that awful day is a gun-free zone. It did absolutely nothing to stop what happened.

    To Obama, I would only ask one question: Have you no shame? You’ve taken a grieving mother and have used her to further your tyrannical agenda. In her grief, she is unaware that you don’t give a damn about her or her son. You, sir, are more cowardly than Adam Lanza in that he at least has the excuse of being mentally ill, whereas you are nothing but a political opportunist of the lowest character.

    Why do the children of rich liberals in Connecticut get disproportionately more coverage than the parents of black and brown children slain by gang violence in gun tough cities?

    Why when AR-15s and AK-47s are used to kill less people than knives. In 2010 rifle homicides account for 359 people, hands/feet/fists accounted for 745, and swimming pools accounted for the drowning of 3553 children under 14. I fail to see how sweeping legislation of a certain type of rifle that probably makes up a fraction of the rifle homicides can be seen as a national crisis.

    If you want to do something to protect the children, don’t send them to a school that has a sign posted in front of it that essentially says, ‘Shooting gallery for lunatics, victims available, shooters welcome’ aka the ‘Gun free school zone’ sign. Do like the the wealthy and important people do and send your kids to a school that has real security. Like the school that Obama’s children attend, Sidwell Friends school.

  • Momo

    I am embarrassed and more than a bit disgusted by our President’s exploiting these poor families’ grieving to push a political agenda. It is shameless and shows a craven myopia of purpose that serves nothing, but his own ego. I am completely understanding of these parents wanting to do something to honor their precious children and wouldn’t dream of being critical of anything they might do right now. The fault for this falls squarely on Obama and his need to “win”at any cost.

    Now, for the issue of the killer, he was clearly disturbed and in need of intervention. While I agree that Nancy Lanza made many mistakes and used horrible judgement, she paid with her life and is still being maligned. However, where is the public outcry toward this young man’s father? He basically abandoned any and all responsibility for his role as a parent to his troubled son and dumped this nearly impossible task solely on his ex-wife. I find this to be a disgraceful example of the worst kind of parental neglect. And this man is alive and kicking, with not one negative word aimed his way? I don’t get it…

    Francine Wheeler “Please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy.” – Ms. Wheeler, I have a great idea. Social services needs to investigate your lack of parenting ability. Any parent that votes to discontinue armed security is unworthy of raising other children. Your incompetence does not trump my Constitutional right to bear arms!

  • Chuck Vipperman

    Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler:

    You have my deepest sympathies. As a parent, I cannot imagine the hell you have gone through in the past few months…and I pray that I never do.

    You may or may not be aware of a key fact. The proposals currently before Congress would have done NOTHING to prevent your child from being murdered. The sponsor of the bill admits it. As a matter of fact (something else you may be unaware of) the sponsor of the bill has stated that her ultimate goal is weapon confiscation. Not sure if you had heard that. Its true.

    Given those facts, I hope you understand my (and others’) resistance to these proposals.

    In your grief, you may be unaware of another fact. The President and his fellow Liberals are using you like a Shake-and-Bake bag. You will be discarded once you serve your purpose. The President doesn’t like you, or anyone else…other than himself. In his eyes, you are useful idiots and nothing more.

    I’ll put it this way…if a loved one of mine were killed by a madman with a gun, I would get no satisfaction out of stripping human rights from people who had nothing to do with it. Indeed, I would feel pretty shitty if that happened.

    I pray you find whatever peace and solace that you can. I hope that peace is not predicated on your ability to negatively impact the millions of law-abiding Americans who simply do not trust a most-untrustworthy Government with a key element of our personal security.

    I’m that much more sorry that you got played as a pawn in this situation. Here’s to wishing you well in separating yourself from the backlash that the Obama admin is facing on gun control issues.

    Sincerely….

Fluke may last a bit longer, as she doesn’t pretend to have any soul redeeming virtues.
