Obama doesn’t waste any opportunity. Even in a eulogy to remember a man murdered because of hate and racism, he pushes his agenda for gun control.
On June 26 President Obama eulogized Rev. Clementa Pinckney praising the frenzied efforts to banish the Confederate flag from public sight, saying, “By taking down that flag we express God’s grace.”
Obama also used the eulogy to call for more gun control laws and to praise Governor Nikki Haley (R) for taking his position on the Confederate flag and calling for its removal from the South Carolina Capitol grounds in the wake of the Charleston attack
According to CNN, Obama said:
Removing the flag from this state’s capital would not be an act of political correctness. It would not an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers. It would simply be an acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought, the cause of slavery, was wrong.
And Fox6Now reports that Obama characterized the flag’s removal as an act of grace, saying, “by taking down that flag we express God’s grace.”
