Obama Compares Massacre of 30+ Students to “Verbal Violence” of Imus

These comments were made by Obama in Wisconsin on the afternoon of the Virginia Tech Massacre:

“Maybe nothing could have been done to prevent it,” he says, speaking of the massacre at Virginia Tech where 30 students were killed. 

But while Obama mourns the slain students, he takes the massacre more as a theme than as a point of discussion.

So he moves quickly to the abstract: Violence, and the general place of violence in American life.

“There’s also another kind of violence that we’re going to have to think about. It’s not necessarily the physical violence, but the violence that we perpetrate on each other in other ways,” he said, and goes on to catalogue other forms of “violence.”

There’s the “verbal violence” of Imus.

Obama was a key leader in the move to fire imus for making a reference to “nappy-headed hos.” For Obama to think about Imus’s comment at a time when more than 30 students were lying in morgues is astonishing. For Obama to equate the two acts, Virginia Tech massacre and Imus’s comment demonstrates that Obama is more indoctrinated in left wing correctness dogma than even his biggest critics want to believe. 

For the rest of the story and a 23-minute MP3 of the remarks see:
