A Telling Comparison

July 24, 2015

In the past month there have been several events that taken in isolation perhaps may not be very revealing. However, when taken together they are evidence of disturbing priorities, says Allen B. West, president and CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis.

These events were:

  • The political exploitation of the Charleston tragedy for gun control.
  • The selective outrage that glossed over the gun-related death of seven year-old Amari Brown, a black child in Chicago.
  • The signing of an agreement with the world's number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism, Iran.
  • A tepid and delayed response by the Obama Administration to the murder of four marines in Chattanooga.

The responses are telling and noted by the American people. Why not fly to Chattanooga instead of New York City? Then again, after four Americans were abandoned at Benghazi he flew to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. After the beheading of American James Foley, President Obama went out to play golf.

The obvious deduction from this comparative analysis of actions is that -- to President Obama -- it seems only the lives and policies that advance the liberal progressive agenda matter. It is a telling comparison and perhaps instead of worrying about what Donald Trump is saying -- we should all pay attention to what these four events represent: the fundamental transformation of America.
