Mark Levin noted that while speaking in Newtown, CT over the weekend President Obama failed to mention a mass killing that happened since he’s been president – Ft. Hood.
Over the weekend, the president was speaking and, really, when he got to his politics it was just stomach turning. There he is, in the middle of that little town … and he named four instances in where there were, what, massacres? But he left one out. I immediately realized — and my brother emailed me too — what happened to Fort Hood? How come he didn’t mention Fort Hood? How come Obama did not mention Fort Hood where 13 human beings were slaughtered and there were several survivors. Because, ladies and gentlemen, first of all, Fort Hood is a military enclave, it’s a base. You can’t have more control than that.
Number two, they had all kinds of rules of who can carry weapons and who can’t there. And fortunately, a lot of men and women in uniform aren’t allowed to carry weapons unless they’re on duty. All kinds of gun control on that base.
But, number three, it had nothing to do with gun control. It had everything to do with political correctness run amok, costing the lives of 13 human beings.
The administration went out of its way to call Ft. Hood an act of workplace violence. They didn’t want to call it terrorism and they certainly didn’t want anyone noticing that Nidal Hasan, the killer, is a Muslim who had been in communication with Al Qaeda.
