It's true the race card is on full display once again as lawmakers on the -- say that those that disagree with the president's new anti gun plans well.
They must be racist Ellison what congressman Hank Johnson told CNN's news yesterday after the president announced his number bypassed congress and put forward 23 executive actions.
Part of the generation through covered it's going to be kind of personal dislike him about the -- what he's.
By doing that is reasonable first -- first.
-- -- And as a person.
The minute and then in the states that -- news you -- America.
It's still connected and -- couldn't get over the first election.
Did you feel -- the second election from his opponent shoots.
Congressman Johnson -- a wild -- perhaps the NRA disagrees with the president's policies because they represented.
An assault on the Second Amendment to the constitution.
And there's more just yesterday New York congressman Charlie Rangel said.
But the race is in the south are to blame for the lack of gun laws in that region are really listen -- us.
Knew you it's a little different and more progressive.
In a lot of areas and some of the states and seven to seven areas have cultures that we have to.
To his house reaction to this the entire gun control showdown author attorney David Limbaugh Fox's political analyst Juan Williams won your reaction.
-- I don't think that this is about the president's race but I think that rays have a lot to do with this conversation that's why I think you see.
Congressman Johnson from Georgia saying hey look if you look across the south higher membership in the NRA high amount of -- ownership.
Principally among whites and in -- mostly Republicans.
And it makes for a huge divide in terms of trying to how -- -- sound reasonable legislation however puts in place reasonable gun control more rural area.
People and I've been brought up with the use of guns -- is more widespread and not many hunters in New York City Juan.
Great so -- it's a little different than another.
Then there are murderous city environment -- -- -- that doesn't that wouldn't stop -- from saying that punters and NRA members don't understand.
That there's a need for reasonable gun control that's not what he said he's what -- what Hank Johnson said they still can't get over that Obama is black.
What I what they said.
-- -- you agree with you shot -- I don't think that that's a legitimate.
Argument to make I don't think it's because I don't know what it is mind a lot of southerners and our region that I -- 60% of white people didn't vote for Obama.
And the south went overwhelmingly for Obama I -- tired of this David Limbaugh I'm getting tired of this country being led by the president.
Being divided along racial lines rich -- for black vs white old vs young.
This president is -- most divisive president in history.
And of course we hear from his party almost daily now it -- -- maybe you don't know the campaigns over.
You know that -- Hank Johnson said he can't get over we can't get over that he's black and I can't get over there is a Marxist you know this constant usage.
Liberals and Obama of the race card is damaging -- race relations it's damaging minorities it's damaging blacks.
I did tick off seventeen examples of Obama's exploitation of -- -- adamant Bob -- but I've got to listed here you want to waste of time going into them.
But this is hurting race relations and Obama is deliberately.
Projecting race on to his political opponents saying it's their racism.
It's not it's up a case of deliberate projection he he's doing at this political advantage it's shameful and wine.
I don't think subscribes to that my wish he would condemn it.
I just did -- by the way did anyone know Hussein is saying Obama's use somebody saying you know unchained and every -- -- had -- -- -- -- -- It's where it would David when it isn't my President Obama say that this was because of race he said that there's too much he's killing in this country and you look up -- can tell he's got to go overwhelmingly white children.
He's got his minions out doing it for -- he went to minorities in the 2010 and 2012 campaigns.
And appealed on the bases of REIS -- to get out there.
Eric Holder said that we are cowards on race.
Obama continues to talk about injecting race into all aspects we talked about bitter cling cleaners he suggested that.
We had antipathy for people who don't look like us he said -- the -- kitty what it would -- he would look like.
-- David mark David.
-- -- -- -- Some of the brain called man of -- -- David you're way up in the -- you -- Touch with this central argument that I'm making to you that you can see the carnage in the black community at a tremendously high rate.
On a nice I -- I got to look at that you and I are black on black crime man.
-- got to get I don't I don't children so what do you say David because -- black on black crime it's tolerable.
Why isn't he had no where you can look at what -- -- people keep focused on it.
You ought to be honest on Matt your let's open a ban -- wearing it plays -- -- Let us hope if they're not putting it plays reasonable gun control they keep guns out of the -- you don't gang -- that are killing the Americans they don't Obey laws -- -- don't Obey them -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Go -- that hasn't opposite affect gun control as -- opposite effect you have these assault weapons -- and you increased crime you can create these gun free zones and that's where the maniacs go.
You most of the weapons most of the murders are committed by handguns only a small percentage by assault weapons which by the way.
Do not exist there's no such things that semi automatic.
That -- -- automatically we gotta keep the guys.
I -- -- it also delighted not a matter of the heart of this argument David you're saying that.
-- somehow the gang bangers that bugs all go to gun free zones David.
They are getting gunned -- I don't have a lax gun laws those -- their final at the places like New York Chicago we use them.
And then they used to kill people and that's why most Americans I would head.
According to Frank Luntz most NRA members think that you can put in place reasonable steps that I -- let's take away your Second Amendment right.
I'm not saying gang bangers go to gun free zones I'm saying he's maniac killers have gone to those sounds and Obama wants to direct all his loss.
-- those incidents and he wants to prescribe the exact wrong solutions and and play on people's emotions because he had something more in mind.
Not just banning assault weapons but getting that -- -- -- go to our weapons we have to the area I got to help clearly David won David Collins both.
A lot -- you guys.
