It's the workhorse AR-15 that is in the left's cross hairs at the moment. They called it an "Assault Rifle" for years. Now they are calling it a Weapon of War.
The word "war" gets repeated often by Democrats when they try to disparage conservatives -- let's not forget the "war on women." Banning "weapons of war" sounds so much more palatable than "disarming America," and you know they chose the phrase carefully.
Lefties are masters at manipulating language to get their desired result from those whose votes they seek. And Obama is a good student of that school as he has put their teachings to good use through the years with catch phrases like "hope and change" and "we are the ones we've been waiting for." It would seem to take a certain susceptibility to be so easily persuaded. Yet Obama certainly had his followers.
"Islamic Terrorism" is a phrase that has been excluded from Obama's lexicon. He gave the game away when he tried to claim it doesn't matter. One has to wonder why he is so afraid of those words -- did CAIR bend his ear? He and his fellow leftists have been so careful avoiding those words yet so eager to use clever phrases against conservatives.
Words matter, and he knows it. There is a lot conservatives could learn from him.
