Obama’s Dangerous Views Concerning Self-Defense

By John W. Lillpop

During the presidential campaign, Barack Obama made it perfectly clear that the use of disproportionate force was sometimes necessary to defend one’s self.

Of course, he was referring to Republicans challenging his presidential aspirations and other delusions of grandeur.

As reported in the June 18, 2008 Wall Street Journal, in part (1):

“Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?

“That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night.”

That tough talk is in marked contrast to Obama’s wuss comments about taking the nuclear option off the table in order to defend America.

As reported, in part, at the New York Times (2):

“WASHINGTON — President Obama said Monday that he was revamping American nuclear strategy to substantially narrow the conditions under which the United States would use nuclear weapons.

“Discussing his approach to nuclear security the day before formally releasing his new strategy, Mr. Obama described his policy as part of a broader effort to edge the world toward making nuclear weapons obsolete, and to create incentives for countries to give up any nuclear ambitions. To set an example, the new strategy renounces the development of any new nuclear weapons, overruling the initial position of his own defense secretary.

“Mr. Obama’s strategy is a sharp shift from those of his predecessors and seeks to revamp the nation’s nuclear posture for a new age in which rogue states and terrorist organizations are greater threats than traditional powers like Russia and China.”

To moon bats on the left, Obama’s arguments make perfect sense: After all, fighting patriotic Republicans is far more vital than defending America against foreign evil-doers.

Once again, Barack Obama proves conclusively that, regardless of where he was born, he is not an American!
