Michelle Malkin: Hussein Obama, Child-Exploiter-in-Chief

The Use and Abuse of Kiddie Human Shields


The president of the United States will release a binder full of new gun-control executive orders on Wednesday. Instead of standing alone, bearing full responsibility for the imperial actions he is about to take, President Obama will surround himself with an audience of kids who wrote to him after the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. This is the most cynical in Beltway theatrical staging — a feckless attempt to invoke “For the Children” immunity by hiding behind them.

What has happened to the deliberative process in this country? Public debate in Washington has deteriorated into Sesame Street sing-a-longs. We are already inundated with logical fallacies: argumentum ad populum (it’s popular, therefore it’s true); argumentum ad nauseam (if you repeat it often enough, it’ll become truth); argumentum ad hominem (sabotage the person, sabotage the truth); and argumentum ad verecundiam (if my favorite authority says it’s true, it’s true).

To that list we can now add “argumentum ad filium”: If politicians appeal to the children, it’s unassailably good and true. The Obama White House has shamelessly employed this kiddie human shield strategy at every turn to blunt substantive criticism and dissent.

Well, Obama’s the Child-Exploiter-in-Chief.

The Ultimate Dumb Blonde Moonbattery

Girls don’t win beauty pageants for their smarts. Even so, Mallory Hytes Hagan really ought to have a brain installed:

If they ever come across an Adam Lanza or Nidal Malik Hasan during a killing spree, rather than screaming for help from someone with a gun, moonbats are encouraged to educate the killer on gun safety. After all, violence is not the proper way to fight violence.

Imagine if people stupid enough to hold opinions like this were in positions of authority. Imagine if there were a whole party of these bubbleheads, and they controlled the two most powerful branches of government: the executive branch and the media branch. We would be living in a nightmare.
