Philly Mayor’s bizarre reaction to ISIS inspired police shooter

CBS 3 Philly carries the report including the graphic photo of a gunman wearing what was described as Islamic garb brazenly attempting to assassinate a Philadelphia police officer in his squad car. The self-admitted ISIS inspired shooter has confessed to the act of depravity as the lone officer was making late night routine rounds.  

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney‘s response is mind-boggling. “There are just too many guns on the streets and I think our national government needs to do something about that,” he said.

The newly elected Democrat obviously missed the fact that the armed officer was able to save his own life and shoot his would-be murderer due to the fact that he was armed. It’s not “too many guns” that’s the problem. Gun violence is perpetrated by criminals not gun-owning, law-abiding citizens who are guaranteed their rights under the Second Amendment.

Kenney’s statement supports the skewed overreaches of Barack Obama, who announced yet another executive action earlier this week —bypassing Congress — to increase restrictions on gun owners and sales of firearms. Anyone “in the business” of selling guns also applies to a private citizen selling a firearm to his sister. Under current law, federally licensed firearms dealers are required to conduct background checks on potential firearm purchasers, but the executive action expands the definition of gun dealers.

In office less than a week, Mayor Kenney, who is assigned his own security detail, spent his first day reinstating dangerous sanctuary city policies which shelter illegal criminals from federal enforcement. Emulating Obama, Kenney signed inane executive orders, including one establishing the politically correct position of Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer — despite the astronomical rise in the violent crime rate in the Democrat run city once known as the City of Brotherly Love.

According to  this ABC 6 Action News coverage, the 2015 citywide murder and violence rate continued to skyrocket, with 692 people shot and 161 murdered by August.

Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying  the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That’s a message the voters of Philadelphia should take to heart.

    While running for office, Kenney consistently reached out to the Muslim community for support.

    In July, he signed a “pledge to combat bigotry” at the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society. The pledge was created by the Arab American Institute, an anti-Israel organization that seeks to promote Arab politicians for higher office. In signing the pledge, Kenney, agreed to combat criticism of Islam, and to “speak out” against ‘Islamophobia.’

    This man should be kicked out of office for covering up the truth. This is political correctness gone over the edge. We’ll never deal with this horrific problem if we don’t confront it. He’s a dangerous cross between Obama and NYC’s mayor de Blasio. He is an enemy of the people of the United States.

    I don’t believe emperor Obama has yet commented on this horrific act by a crazed Islamist terrorist. Josh Ernest didn’t even admit to knowing about it an hour and a half after it happened. I don’t know about you, but I feel like the walls are closing in on this country.

      Jim Kenney sounds like a real piece of work..He’s obviously the ideal mayor for a left wing city that’s become a war zone. I agree with your statement that the walls are closing in on our country and fear for my children.

      Two Iraqi born Palestinian Muslim men who came to the United States as “refugees” and were granted legal permanent resident status, were also arrested yesterday in connection with terrorism investigations. One was in Houston and the other in Sacramento, although one of them lived for a time in Arizona — just like a couple of the 9/11 Twin Towers Islamic terrorists who took flight training at an aviation school in Arizona.

    Having spent my teen-age years in SouthJersey, I can factually tell you that th’ bruthaz ova in killadelphia LOVE dat crack cocaine…as is PLAINLY evidenced by the good mayor’s response…

    Isn’t it time to call a halt to the refugee scam? Are we so intent on our own destruction that political correctness is allowed to supersede national security?

    • Ellsworth says:

      That would be a reasonable assumption If we had a President who put the United States first. Obama is a committed Marxist who was indoctrinated with Islamic teachings while enrolled in school as Barry Soetoro as a Muslim child in Indonesia when his mother was married to her second Muslim husband.

    Disclosure: Another 41 Foreign-Born Individuals Snagged On Terror Charges

    From the article: “Since August, however, the Obama administration has stonewalled Congressional efforts to obtain more detailed immigration histories of these individuals, prompting frustration on Capitol Hill and accusation that the administration is covering up these histories to avoid exposing flaws in the U.S. screening process.”

    This is putting a strain on the FBI and Obama is still letting them in without vetting. We can thank the Omnibus Bill that Paul Ryan aka Eddie Munster and Mitch McConnell passed. We’re doomed with the help of the Republican elite. Their actions betray their words.

    Yesterday, on FOX News, the articulate and common sense lawman
    Sheriff Clarke said this:

    Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (D) argued the attempted murderer of a Philadelphia police officer “should be charged with treason…charged as an enemy combatant, held at Gitmo and he should not have access to American courts” on Friday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

    Clarke argued, “these individuals should be charged with treason. They — if he’s an American citizen, he forfeits his citizenship. He should be charged as an enemy combatant, held at Gitmo and he should not have access to American courts, he should be tried in a military court, and if convicted, he should be executed.”

    Earlier, Clarke stated, “President Obama’s JV team has struck again. This is not the first time that Islamic terror or Islamic-inspired terror has struck at home here in the United States. This president is not only unwilling to face the fact that we are being targeted here on the homeland, he is incapable of protecting Americans.”

    Clarke added, “that’s the thing about the president. He’ll find a way — he’s probably huddling with his aides right now, trying to figure out how he can punish the gun owner, punish the American people, or try to blame the cops for what happened here. This has gone beyond the things like we saw in San Bernardino, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Garland, Texas, we are under attack here in the United States, and it is time for the president to put down the ideology, and put down all the other nonsense, and start protecting Americans here at home.”
