How Obama’s Terrorism Speech Has Punked out Muslims in America
One of the main aim of doctrine of rational thinking on gun control is to limit the access of guns by American identified as ‘high risk’ by government officials. Unfortunately, just the opposite event occurred after the weakest intonated and mind-numbing speech came out of the President’s Oval Office directly related to the San Bernardino mass shooting was to focus on more gun control.
It appears now that gun sales are soaring all across the country as many Americans come to believe that Barack Obama and his Democrat cohorts are coming for our guns. Adversely, the President has become the most prolific gun salesman in the country after Sunday evening’s speech.
The mere mention of legislative changes, executive orders and other harder methods to buy guns including the high capacity type of firearms, has set off a firestorm of gun buyers nationwide.
Since Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving Day, gun sales have been soaring. This increased exponentially after the mass shooting in San Bernardino and now still, Americans are shopping for firearms.
In the meantime, American Muslims are at the edge of irritation and disappointment in their leader. He has punked them out by telling them to snitch off those suspected of extremism or radicalization.
In so many words, his request to “root out” and confront extremist in their communities is pitting Muslims against each other with severe mixed feelings and emotions. Some say, this might help but many say this will divide the religious persecution already in place.
One person said, "We would never ask any other faith community to stand up and condemn acts of violence committed by people within their groups," said Palestinian American activist Linda Sarsour, who has worked extensively with the Black Lives Matter movement and other minority groups. "The fact that this is only directed at the Muslim community is something that I personally can't accept."
The president has crossed lines without realizing how his words were perceived or received by the American public, gun buyers and Muslims. Pitting Muslims against each other is morally wrong and puts them at conflict with their own ideologies and trust within their societal circles.
Religious agreements are normally sanctified and confidential and empowering or enabling Muslims to snitch off other Muslims will create conflict and inner confrontations amongst the Muslim followers and leadership.
Any reasonable person can see how this ties into the relationship between law enforcement and the community if the Muslim community is expected to deal with a different relationship with cops than anyone else in the community.
