Flashback: Obama ridicules the GOP for worrying about women and children refugees:
President Obama is lashing out at Republican politicians who oppose allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S., accusing them of being “scared of widows and orphans.”
Speaking to reporters Wednesday morning in the Philippines, Obama scoffed at attempts to block refugees following the Paris terror attacks as “political posturing” that “needs to stop.”
“Apparently they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America,” Obama said of Republicans. “At first, they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of three year old orphans. That doesn’t seem so tough to me.”
Who’s afraid of women? I mean, really.
Obama defended the screening for Syrian refugees as the “most rigorous process conceivable,” hours after White House officials held a conference call with governors to reassure them about the security procedures for refugees.
Tashfeen Malik passed a Department of Homeland Security Counterterrorism background check.
And you know who greased the skids for Malik’s entry into the US?
That would be one Barack Obama, who relaxed the rules for fiancée waivers.
Orphans? Did someone say orphans?
Did someone say kids?
How long before we see this?
How long before the mother of a six month old who was willing to go on a suicide mission and abandon the baby uses a baby in a suicide mission?
We seem not to have learned. The biggest lesson from 9-11 was to be prepared to expect the unexpected. No one would ever have imagined anyone could use a loaded civilian passenger jet as a missile. No one could expect a woman suicide bomber. No one could imagine a woman going on a mission and leaving behind a six month old baby.
So who could imagine a child suicide bomber or a using a child as a killer?
Who could possibly fear women and children immigrants, eh, Barack?
Obama still hasn’t learned the single most important lesson from 9-11. His arrogance and hubris prevent it. That’s scary.
