Delivering the eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of nine killed inside the Mother Emanuel church in Charleston last week, Mr. Obama praised South Carolina’s decision to remove the Confederate battle flag from the state capitol complex. He called on other states to follow suit.

The president also repeated calls for gun control, saying the memory of the late Rev. Pinckney would be dishonored if the nation allows this tragedy to pass without addressing gun violence.

  • I demand Obama Control and make him stop perverting our land with his Queer ideas and perverting our Laws! Obama is our greatest Enemy and needs to be brought down hard and soon!

    It was not a eulogy; it was a pitch for his ideology as usual.
    And, notice the Ramadan dinner again?

    Obama is a scumbag. A funeral service is a place to honor the deceased and politics have no place in it. He has a pulpit whenever he wants with all the puppets around the world at his beck and call. He could scold us there – not at the funeral.

    What a horrible joke has been brought down on us and has lasted far too long. He has no respect for any of us. He considers himself king/god and will do everything he can to destroy us. Our states are beginning to stand up to him and reject him. Too bad our US Congressmen are too weak to do the same. They don’t stand for us, they coddle him.

    The only thing Obama is good for is watching his plane go down and him in it along with the Transvestite wife.Nice if he could take Boehner,Pelosi, Reid and his whole regime, 70% of the Senate and about 45% of the Congress but I digress.

    You wait the closer he gets to his final day in the white house the more crap he will do…. and watch also that none of our 535 legislators will do anything to stop him…. just like the last 6 years nothing has been done to stop them…. so anyone that is running for office that is a senator or congressman ask them “how come you let this guy do all of this?”. See what they say…. they are worse than he is…. because they are not stopping him….

      What we have to watch for of his plans not to have am election in 2016.
      but what every body is reading that he won’t be alive much longer.

      • monacall

        That’s what he is working on! no election in 2016

    Like all good little dictators, Obama never misses a chance to demand gun control. Gun control for them means disarm honest AMERICANS so that they have no means to defend themselves from an ABUSIVE GOVERNMENT!

    Just remember, without an armed Secret Service, like everyone else in society, he’d have a 50/50 chance of survival. The rest of us are not complaining.

    the race baiting pos obama will never let a tragedy go to waste! the confederate flag is nothing more than part of American history that obama wants to do away with, good or bad it’s part of what shaped America and should not be done away with, the next thing he’ll call for is banning all books with reference to it! obama will continue to try to disarm law abiding Americans but will leave the criminals alone, never has he come up with a plan to keep criminals from having guns on the other side his administration helped put guns in the hands of criminals, does fast and furious ring a bell? as long as we have his party and the turncoat republican rino’s in power Americans will never have a government that we were meant to have, a government of the people , for the people , by the people! that doe’s not try to over reach and control everything!

    The Confederate flag is the flag of the Democrat party.
    Every state that fought for slavery was Democrat.

      Thats a FACT!

    Obama needs Americans disarmed so his Muslim friends can come in and take the place over,this was the act of one person.not actions of the whole white race for petesakes, why else does he try and make such a big deal out of everything that takes place.—–Jim Hunt

      Did you notice that Brokeback 0bama never said a word about the Colorado theater shooting. I guess the victims must have been the wrong color.

    • Smitch

      The only thing OBAMIE needs to do Is pull his head out of his colin! And then just go away!

      • TexRancher

        When Obama is out of office, he should not be allowed to live in this country in wealth and security that he’s used his time in OUR White House is take from AMERICANS! (Which he is not)

          Just think what a pain in the ass he’ll be once he isn’t President. Maybe we could send him and Michele on an all expense paid trip to one of the Carolina beaches.
