Immediately after the Charleston shootings, knowing no more than anyone reading Internet accounts, President Obama said this:
Now is the time for mourning and for healing. But let’s be clear. At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.
Only a few days later, in what must be a non-advanced country–Austria–this occurred:
A seven-year-old boy is reportedly among the three people killed in Austria by a man who ploughed his car into crowds in the country’s second-largest city and then reportedly started stabbing people.
A witness told the Wiener Zeitung newspaper that dead bodies were left lying face down in the road after the vehicle sped through streets near the the historical Herrengasse in Graz.
The killing only stopped when the driver parked his battered car outside a police station.
At the moment, three are dead and more than 50 have been injured. Reportedly, some are in critical condition; the death toll may be higher.
Barack Obama can’t possibly be wrong, so Austria must be a third world country. Besides, he can’t be held accountable for knowing everything. In 2009, he thought the language spoken in Austria was Austrian (they speak mostly German; there is no such language as Austrian).
On June 26, Mr. Obama delivered the eulogy at the funeral of Rev. Clementa Pinckney in Charleston. He turned it into a progressive political rally, denigrating those that are working to ensure voting integrity, demanding gun control, and touching on all the usual divisive issues: race, class, and more. There were standing ovations for Mr. Obama’s political points, funky call-and-response riffs from the band, and Mr. Obama, rock star that he is, actually sang–poorly; don’t give up that day job just yet Mr. President–Amazing Grace at the end of his political pep rally disguised as a funeral. He then spent some time working the people on the stage, shaking hands, acknowledging the adulation of the crowd, and waving, before leaving. Even at the funerals of others, it’s all about him.
On the same day, three terrorist attacks took place more or less simultaneously in Kuwait, Tunisia and France. More than 50 were killed or wounded.
