(PresidentialWire.com)- Former President Barack Obama used the tragic Boulder, Colorado shooting earlier this week to advance his radical left-wing agenda, falsely blaming the attack on “disaffection, racism, and misogyny.”
Before the full details of the attack were even widely known, the former president issued a statement on Tuesday seemingly blaming the attack on everything he accused former President Donald Trump of promoting.
“It is long past time for those with the power to fight this epidemic of gun violence to do so,” Obama said in the statement.
“It will take time to root out the disaffection, racism and misogyny that fuels so many of these senseless acts of violence,” he added.

In a tweet that accompanied the statement, Obama said that it was time for political leaders to “listen to the American people” on the issue of guns.
The problem? Most Americans don’t support his radical anti-Second Amendment agenda, and nor do politicians in the Senate.
Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham slammed President Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats for using the tragic shooting, which turned out to be an ISIS-inspired attack by a Syrian immigrant, and insisted that a policy of banning AR-15 guns would not pass the Senate.
“I would encourage Senator Schumer to bring up the assault weapons ban being proposed by President Biden and let us vote on it,” Graham said this week. “I think you’d get a majority of senators saying that banning the weapon is not going to solve the problem. I own an AR-15, I own it responsibly.”
But President Obama won’t let a good tragedy go to waste when he has policy to sell.
The horrific shooting in a Boulder supermarket on Monday prompted outrage among left-wing commentators and Democrats, with photographs of 21-year-old Ahmad Al-Issa being widely shared online alongside derogatory comments about white men. It soon turned out, however, that the man was not a white European but a Syrian.
The shooter has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder.
