But suppose, seized with a desire to tell more of the truth, he gave the following speech instead:
“Hi, folks, this is your President, making the clubhouse turn in my two-terms as your esteemed leader. I’ve decided I want some props for what I’ve really been doing in office, as opposed to what some of you think I’ve been doing. Therefore, let’s go to the subject of guns.
“This Planned Parenthood shooting? Do you actually believe this is the only recent event I could have seized on to promote my agenda? Wow. Come on. What’s wrong with you folks? For example, I’ve got a story right here from Reuters, dated November 28, about the arrest of a suspect in a New Orleans blow-up. Let me read a few lines.
‘A suspect in a shooting at a New Orleans park last Sunday that wounded 17 people is in police custody, authorities said on Saturday. The suspect, Joseph “Moe” Allen, 32, has declined to give detectives a statement, the New Orleans Police Department said in a Twitter post. Police on Friday named Allen a suspect in the shooting at the Bunny Friend Playground. Police have said gunfire erupted on Sunday between two groups when hundreds of people gathered at an unauthorized block party and for the filming of an impromptu music video. Police have said the shooting appeared to be gang-related. One of the victims is 10 years old and most of those injured were young, they said. Authorities plan to charge Allen with 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder. Police said on Friday he is believed to be one of several suspects involved in the shoot-out.’
“That’s a good one, right? Seventeen counts of attempted first-degree murder. Why haven’t I mentioned that one? Now, I know what some of you are going to say—the suspect is black, some of the victims are gang members, and I don’t want to publicize black crime.
“But you’re missing the subtle point. Screw in your brains real tight to understand this. The official narrative about black crime is that it’s caused by, let’s call it the environmentin inner cities—and of course, racism. Right? Well, if I highlighted the suspect in the New Orleans shooting, I’d be disturbing that narrative, see? Suddenly I’d be changing it to: this guy is horrible and let’s take away all the guns, including those in the inner cities. I’m not about to do that.
“Let me go over that again, for those of you who are dim bulbs. Let me boil it down. Crazy lone white guy with a gun spraying bullets around? That equals blame, guilt, mental illness, and therefore, take all the guns away. Black guy with a gun spraying bullets all around? That equals ‘we have to do something about conditions in the inner cities’ and racism. Does that make things a little clearer?
[pullquote align=”left|center|right” textalign=”left|center|right” width=”30%”]“There are different narratives for different situations. It’s nothing personal, it’s just business. So don’t get your panties in a twist. Relax.[/pullquote]
“Instead of the shooter at Planned Parenthood, I could have given a speech about yet another situation. Can you guess what it is? Chicago. Do you know that the tally of gunshot victims in Chicago, so far in 2015, is 2,724? Wow. Pretty wild, right? Can you guess that most of these victims are black, and that most of the shooters are black? But all those folks fit into a different narrative on a national level. They don’t become the poster children for ‘take away all the guns from everybody.’ They just don’t. For that message, I need one white shooter going nuts in Colorado.
“This is how the game works. Why can’t you see that? Plus, and this is something you should keep quiet, I don’t want to draw too much attention to the inner cities and their problems, because then it would come out that all these Globalist trade treaties gutted jobs in those areas—and of course I’m the number one proponent in the world for trade treaties, like the TPP, the one that’s coming up for a vote now.
“Oops. But again, this is all about the cost of doing business. In this case, I mean my business, because I was put in office to move Globalism forward. Can’t you grasp that? Why is this such a mystery? How naïve can you people be?
“I certainly wasn’t put in office to ‘extend equality,’ whatever that’s supposed to mean. That was just the cover story. Come on, get with it. Look at the American landscape these days. Do you see more equality?
“I know this may be hard to swallow, but things are worse in the inner cities…and wait for it, I’ve given up on the inner cities. They’re good for one thing: creating unrest and violence. That’s it. So regardless of what I’m saying about black lives, how much do they really matter to me? I mean, look, I could have forwarded just one item for the past seven years—the growing of food in vast empty lots, urban food gardens and farms, and with that one program I could have done more good for those folks than anything I’ve been generalizing about. Don’t you think I know that? I’m a smart guy. Think of it—three thousand, four thousand flourishing food gardens in the inner cities of America. I could have done that. It would have been a real revolution called self-sufficiency. Good clean food for all. But I didn’t do that. Why not?
“Like every other American President, I’m an agenda guy. I have my agendas on a silver platter that’s handed to me and I go with that. Different narratives for different agendas. It’s actually pretty simple.
“We, the people who run the day-to-day stuff for the real power players…we don’t want self-sufficiency. We want dependence on the government. That’s our job, to foster that. I can give away cell phones like there’s no tomorrow, but I can’t promote, with vigor, one urban farm in an inner city. That’s just the way it is. And to be frank, guns and shootings in inner cities do, in fact, promote dependency, because what else do those residents have to fall back on, in their dreams, when bullets are whistling around their heads?
“This isn’t rocket science. This is Clinton, Bush, me, and every other President. We’re in the political party which, if it had a name, would be called: the screw-things-up-worse party. On purpose. Make chaos, then bring in tighter order. Everybody should know that by now.
“And as far as guns are concerned, we need enough of them on the streets in the hands of people who want to fire them, so we can keep the pot boiling. Honestly, isn’t that as obvious as the nose on your face?
“Anyhow, that’s all for the moment, I have to get back to the Climate Change summit. Or as I call it, the Spare Change Summit, about 50 trillion dollars of it, diverted from some to others, and in the process making regular folks all over the planet worse off than they are now, because total energy production will drop like a stone when we have our way. This isn’t an accident or a miscalculation, in case you’re laboring under yet another delusion. This is an agenda designed to do what it does. Get it? I hope so. For once, I’d like to be recognized for what I’m actually doing, instead of for my public persona.
“But maybe that’s too much to ask for. By the way, stop writing me asking for winter coats. It’s warm, warm, warm everywhere, even when it’s cold.
“—Wait. I thought I was done, but one more thing occurred to me. It has to do with those smart alecks who say I should give up my guns …meaning I shouldn’t have all those heavily armed Secret Service people around wherever I go. I don’t mind the sentiment, but again, it’s the naïve presumption that gets under my skin. How stupid are you people? I and others like me have to be the last people with guns when all other guns are taken away. That’s the whole goal of gun confiscation: the people in charge have the firepower. And of course, the criminals get to keep their weapons because you can’t stop them from finding sources of supply. And like I said, we need criminals with guns because they’ll shoot them whenever they want to—and this promotes a desirable climate of fear.
“One last confession: I have dreams at night, glorious dreams, in which all sorts of ‘liberals’ who want to disarm the populace are in a bad situation, on streets where bad guys are coming toward them with guns, and the liberals are out of luck. And in those dreams, I ask myself, How far can I push those liberals before they turn into advocates for guns? And the answer seems to be: there is no limit. They’ll die on the street. And do you know why? This is the wonderful thing. They’ll die because they’re too scared to shout: ‘I want a gun!’ That’s all. That’s their bottom line. They’d rather die than shout, ‘Give me a gun!’ This is how low the survival instinct will sink just to avoid public criticism. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. I wake up from those dreams laughing. I really do. I mean, you have to laugh. It’s unavoidable. If you were in my position, with all that firepower guarding you, wouldn’t you see the joke? I think you would. I hope so. Because if you couldn’t see the joke, you’d be so stupid you wouldn’t have understood anything I’ve been saying in this speech. Bye for now.”
