Four Chicago Gun Deaths While Obama Advocates for Gay Marriage at Swanky $50,000 Donor Dinner
While Barack Obama visited his rich donors at a swanky Chicago dinner where tickets cost $50,000, the common rabble were dying in the streets without protection against criminal gun violence because of Chicago’s stringent gun laws:
President Barack Obama came home to Chicago on Wednesday to raise money for House Democrats — and he used the occasion to give a key boost to a state bill that would legalize gay marriage.
“Here in Illinois, we’ve got a vote on same-sex marriage that’s going to be coming up in the Legislature,” Obama told donors at his second fund-raiser of the night. “ I just want to say for the record it’s something that I deeply support.”
Let’s hope that all the grieving families of the dead are consoled by the thought that Obama is tackling the issue of gay marriage head on!!
Also, eleven others were wounded by gun violence.
Much like Benghazi, while Americans died, Obama slept warmly in his bed. Here’s a map of his house and the deaths which occurred while he made his campaign visit:
Too bad those poor people couldn’t have found shelter at his donor dinners, but I doubt they could have afforded to:
At the Hilton, about 100 supporters were on hand at a reception where tickets started at $1,000 each and topped out at $5,000 for two tickets and a photo.
From there, Obama headed to the Streeterville home of longtime supporters Bettylu and Paul Saltzman. Tickets there ran from $10,000 for dinner and photo to $50,000 for a table, photo and preferred seating.
What a great advocate for the poor people of Chicago!
If only we could extend his incredible community organizing skills out to the rest of America and to the world!
