Obama Blames U.S. for Mexican Gun Violence – After His ‘Fast and Furious’ Guns Killed 300 Mexicans

Shameless: Obama blames the U.S. and 2nd Amendment for Mexican gun violence.

-

President Obama delivered a speech today in Mexico City where he blamed the United States for being the root of Mexico’s violence. He even implied that the 2nd Amendment was to blame, after absurdly claiming he was committed to "uphold" the right to bear arms.

But worst of all was the shameless hypocrisy of a man whose Attorney General Eric Holder carried out a gun-running "Operation Fast and Furious" which sold AK-47s and other weapons, which have been used to murder over 300 Mexican civilians, and 2 U.S. agents.

Direct quotes from Obama's speech today:

“And we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States. (Applause.) I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms, and as President I swore an oath to uphold that right and I always will. But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do. (Applause.) So we’ll keep increasing the pressure on gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico. We’ll keep putting these criminals where they belong — behind bars."
Utterly disgraceful - on so many levels.

First, it is laughable that Obama is upholding the 'individual right to bear arms' after he just tried (and failed...for now) to pass the most broad-based gun-control legislation in a generation, and his political arm has promised to target every politician who opposed it.

Secondly, it was Obama/Holder 'Fast and Furious' which insanely, deliberately put nearly 2,000 weapons - mainly AK-47s - in the hands of murderous Mexican cartels, without any attempt to track them. Many experts believe this disastrous plan was to cause violence, which then could be used as a pretext for a wide-ranging gun ban in the U.S.

Whether or not that was the objective, the outcome is clear and monstrous: Over 300 Mexican civilians murdered - dozens of them children. And also 2 murdered American agents: Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata.

In a single, horrifying massacre in 2010, as Spanish-language network Univision reported - 16 teenagers were slaughtered using 'Fast and Furious'-linked guns.

ALL were killed by the guns that Obama and Holder handed over to their killers. NONE of them were the result of so-called "gun traffickers" or the 2nd Amendment. For Obama to blame the United States for this wholesale slaughter is just despicable, but hardly surprising. The man has utterly no shame.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry told the Washington Times he was stunned by the president’s remarks.

“The idea that a United States president would go to Mexico and make that statement is incredulous,” Perry told the newspaper. “His goal – well before he became president of the United States — was to try to disarm the American public. He just disregards the Constitution.”
He disregards the law on guns, as he does on immigration. He disregards the truth, lying by denouncing his own country, on foreign soil no less.

Just despicable.

The reason “fast and furious” was set up was so the lowlife Kenyan could say these kinds of things and blame America first. Blame the Americans for Mexicans killing each other. Barry can KMA!!! He’s a liar.

Being Obama means never having to say you are sorry unless you are apologizing for America.

It also means never being held accountable no matter how extraordinary the malfeasance.

More specifically, Barack Obama and his vile Attorney General are responsible for those deaths, and an American Border Patrol agent as well. The present President of The United States and his entire cabinet could not equal the character of their same number of maggots. They are detestable, lying, degenerate two legged vermin at their best, as are those who put them in office.

The sad part is that we have GOP senators who are very much helping Obama push this lie along with the proposed amnesty bill

It’s worth mentioning how the Mexicans applauded. Happy Cinco de Mayo.

Obama tries to use lies and demonization to get his way. This is exactly what Hitler did. Obama’s main obstacle in fooling the citizenry is our vast communications systems. Hitler had news opposition in Germany stopped within 3 months. Our communication technology is going to help us survive Obama.
