The National Rifle Association’s many defenders on the right are still unwilling to acknowledge the role America’s lax guns have had in facilitating America’s mass shooting epidemic.
Right-wingers have instead been trying to find a scapegoat to blame for the recent church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. It was perhaps inevitable that one would pin responsibility for this tragedy on Republicans’ ultimate boogeyman, former Democratic President Barack Obama.
On his “TruNews” television show, right-wing commentator and host Rick Wiles explained his bizarre conspiracy theory about Obama and his allies being behind this and other mass shootings. Said Wiles, “The mass killings of peaceful Christian families in church on Sunday mornings are what America’s political left has given this nation. Since 1962, there has been a relentless ongoing war of hatred in the USA against God and Christianity. The religious war has been supported by America’s courts and judges, Hollywood, the entertainment industry, the news media, academia, and the Democratic Party. Fifty-five years later, we have church carpets soaked in blood. Oh, America, how much more of this religious war against God are you going to tolerate? Will you remain silent until your children are bleeding on the church floor too?”
Rick then asserted, “A dark, sinister entity controlled by Lucifer is behind these mass shootings. These events are not happening at random by mentally ill people. You may not realize it, but the USA is engulfed in a communist revolution. I’ve been warning about it since 2008, with the election of communist street organizer Barry Soetoro, alias Barack Hussein Obama, and I assure you he is behind all of this Resist Trump movement going on right now.” Wiles went on to argue that Obama’s communist revolution is planning on executing “tens of thousands of Christian leaders within months or years.” He added, “If you think I am melodramatic, you don’t know history.” Do you find it laughable that right-wingers keep trying to blame Obama for everything?
