On Friday former Texas Governor and current Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry referred to the racially-motivated domestic terror attack that saw nine innocent men and women gunned down as an “accident” during an interview on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”
“Any time there is an accident like this, the president’s clear. He didn’t like for Americans to have guns and so he uses every opportunity, this being another one, to basically go parrot that message.”
What happened in Charleston, South Carolina was clearly no accident; it was a premeditated, planned attack, and for Gov. Perry to minimize it as nothing more than an “accident” shows how stunningly out of touch he is with the reality the rest of us live in, and it shows just how utterly unqualified he is to serve as our nation’s president.
