Obama’s inexcusable nomination of Chuck Hagel to head the Department of Defense has made his characteristic liberal dislike of the military more obvious than ever. Apparently, the Moonbat Messiah assumes the Marines feel the same way about him:
Take a close look at the M-14 rifles the Marines where carrying at Obama’s second inauguration. The bolts have been removed from the rifles rendering them unable to fire a round.
Apparently Obama’s Secret Service doesn’t trust the USMC. Simply searching each guy to make sure he didn’t have a live round hidden on him wasn’t enough, they had to make sure the guns were inoperable.
Remember all those times George Bush (miss him yet?) traveled to Iraq to meet the troops? Troops who had working rifles slung on their shoulders, with loaded magazines in pouches on their belt.
Obama must figure the Marines know him a lot better than they did four years ago, when bolts were allowed:
Wondering if this may be an inauguration policy of long standing that transcends administrations, Gun Rights Examiner made a cursory search and found something even more curious. In the 2009 Inaugural Parade, the United States Navy marched with rifles that had not been so disabled (see 1:24 into that video plus the final slide).
Bad enough Obama doesn’t trust American citizens with firearms. If he doesn’t even trust the Marines, then it’s no wonder his DHS has been buying up ammo by the billions of rounds. Obama did promise an ominous “national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the entire US military. He will certainly need it if his fundamental transformation calls for fighting the Marines.
