Unspecific and Untrue

“This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.” —@POTUS
— The White House (@WhiteHouse) June 18, 2015

The above quote is a tweet from the White House following the Charleston, South Carolina, massacre last week. As is customary with the president's vague, sweeping generalizations, this one is not true.

France, Norway, the Czech Republic, Germany, Serbia, Russia, England, Brazil, and China will be surprised to learn that they do not count as "advanced countries." Because well within the past decade, "mass violence" certainly has happened in each of those nations.

Details, details. Never let the truth get in the way of advancing a progressive agenda. It's the reason I simply cannot listen to President Obama anymore.
