TEXAS, January 15, 2015 – Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Paris to show unity against terrorism and for the freedom of the press. They celebrated the ability of the press to bring truth and light by the written word and also by cartoons, despite putting a target on their back in the process.
This rally erupted after the murder of 17 people by radical terrorists. People just living their lives and caring for their family’s.
The rally began at the place de la pepulique very near the Charlie Hebdo offices where the cartoonists were murdered for expressing their opinion.
The rally was estimated at about 3.7 million, and among these were world leaders who also wanted to show their support for freedom and opposition to the tyranny of terrorism.
Among these world leaders we find French President Francois Hollande, British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. Also among these were Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
This was a chance of a lifetime for these leaders to express their desire to promote freedom. They wanted to let the world see that they are among those willing to stand up for human dignity, and their right to exercise their religion without the dread of murderous terrorist with their quest for World dominion.
This would also been a ideal time for President Obama to rally on behalf of the United States of America. Unfortunately, he apparently had other irons int he fire because he was nowhere to be found.
The world was perplexed. How was the leader of the free world so unconcerned about freedom and terrorism?
Where was our President?
His minions claim that the security of the president would have been in grave danger, because there just wasn’t enough time to arrange things to their perfection, so the president thought it best to stay home and watch it on TV.
It’s quite possible that he was studying his latest golf manual, or possibly he was working on a puzzle and only need one more day to finish.
Or it is possible that he was sharpening his pen for the future possibility of scraping more of the Constitution.
We have all had to cancel appointments and meetings at some point in life, this is to be expected, but, for the most of us these events are not something that effects world opinion toward freedom, and the basic right of expression. In my humble opinion this would have been one of those rare moments in time to walk hand in hand with the leaders of the free world, and stand up for the dignity of mankind, and his or her right to life and freedom.
But with the president MIA at Paris, it makes one wonder: What could have been more important than showing unity with the human race?Click here for reuse options!
