The Expensive School Obama’s Daughters Attend Has Nearly a Dozen Armed Guards

When NRA head Wayne Lapierre gave his press conference last week, he called for more guns in schools, not less. Specifically, LapierreMalia-Sasha-2012 called for armed guards in school.

“The only way to answer that question is to face the truth. Politicians pass laws for gun free school zones, they issue press releases bragging about them. They post signs advertising them. And, in doing so, they tell every insane killer in America that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk” said Lapierre.

He continued, saying, “We care about our money, so we protect our banks with armed guards. American airports, office buildings, power plants, court houses, even sports stadiums are all protected by armed security.”

And although most people believe that adding more guns to schools is not the answer to thwarting gun violence, it is important to note that the school President Obama’s daughters attend, Sidwell Friends,  is staffed by 11 armed guards.

Why is the school staffed by armed guards? Mostly because it’s a school where the wealthy and successful send their children.

The question this brings up is whether or not President Obama should call for gun control for the rest of America, while his kids are protected by armed security guards? Is it fair for the rich to protect their kids with weapons, while the rest of America sends their kids to study in “gun free” zones?

    It is a PRIVATE school where not only the Obama girls attend but children of foreign dignateries as well. Children like those whose parents are possibly threatened on a regular basis need extra protection. Send your kids to private school if you want that kind of protection. Public schools should be safe also but parents need to be involved more.

    GEORGEJANSEN,

    Apparently not. But, I am sure if there is a threat of carnage or mayhem at their schools, President Obama will personally protect their children at all cost.

    And, if you believe that, you are a lunatic, an Obama disciple or both!!!

    Boyce, you are the most stupid, and jealous ass n*gger, that has ever lived. Your hatred, and jealousy of President Obama, is obvious, and seems that it is coming from a member of the KKK.You are nothing but a low class bum, that keeps your job at Syracuse university, only because they are afraid of firing you, because they know that you will scream racism, even though you are simply unqualified to even be cleaning the toilets of this school. It would really gratify you, if President Obama, sent his children to a school in the ghetto,where they would be left open to be kidnapped, or murdered, or better yet, get assassinated himself. You are a disgrace to all African Americans, and not qualified to speak on any issues that concern us. The only reason why I even bother to read any of your articles, is to see how much more lower, and stupid you can be. I would never purchase anything that is advertised on this site, and I intend to let the advertisers know about this, and your traitorous articles, that they are supporting.

    “Why is the school staffed by armed guards? Mostly because it’s a school where the wealthy and successful send their children” It’s been said that there are no dumb questions. Maybe not. But there most certainly are DUMB persons that ask questions.

    You simply must stop listening to Cornel and Tavis and probably FOX News. Barack Obama is President of the United States of America. The need for him to take extraordinary measures to protect his children and the rest of his family is clearly understood through the use of common sense. Get some!

    President Obama is President and the first African-American President of course his girls need armed protection. This is a stupid article and one which causes hatred.

    The only point I got from this article is why rich people, not only the President(who is now calling for gun control after 437 homicides in Chicago) children schools have armed guards protecting their schools why other schools do not. Will you folks please not thinking everything is a condemnation of president Obama.

    I now see why you defend Travis and West, you are of the same mindset. Crab barrel folks, whose only job is to keep other crabs from escaping the barrel. If it was left to blacks, with this mentality to help free the slaves, we would all still be in the barrel. Stop hating on President Obama. He didn’t become a magician nor a God when he was elected president. Did you think he could change the way people,who have hated you for centuries, think and behave? We need to stop disrespecting our president, there is enough disrespect without us joining the band.

    I am truly starting to question why i even bother reading anything from this web publication.When i first started reading this publication, i thought i would get consistantly good and insightful points of view from a black perspective. But instead it’s appearing more and more like the national inquirer, with over the top nonsensical BS.Of course the Obama girls attend a school with high security. They’re the daughters of the President of the United States.Anything less would be beyond ridiculous. Come on, be better than this.

    Is there a point to this article

    Thanks again Dr. Watkins!. You have just made public what some Mis-educated or non-educated Kneegrows are saying and thinking. This article makes the point of just how much we lack in basic understanding and reasoning. Keep the discussion going, and hopefully we will learn something through our comments.

    Republicans and John Boehner are responsible for the death of recent 26 people and deaths in people in inner cities. They are racists and selfish. They are ones for years defunded having more police in schools and in inner cities. If there was a police officer at the school this hooligan would have thought twice how to enter the school. His plan would not have been the same. Same as in inner cities. If there are more police cars patrolling inner cities disarranged people with guns would have to think carefully before going to kill others. Remember people who kill others with guns are usually physically weak – they cannot fight physically. That is why they resort to guns. I have said more than once – please don’t vote republican in 2014. John Boehner should go back to run his restaurant and clean the floor once again. Maybe he can do his “Big Cry-BABY” stuff with people eating at his restaurant.

    It’s that school, a private school where a lot of foreign dignitaries and very wealthy people send their children. I would expect them to have armed security.

    Like everyone else that has responded, this is more like comparing apples to oranges. Anytime you have anyone even vaguely connected to the President in a public arena, you’re going to see the armed security. It’s a given and not really open for discussion.

      Some African-Americans are jealous that an African-American, not them, is President of US. Remember what Herman Cain said: “President Obama is African-American-I am a Black American and no label of African”. Look an African-American with a degree in Math (Cain) ever went in public with such a statement. Cornel West said: “President Obama thinks he is on top of mountain”. Did you hear Cornel say that when Clinton was president – No. It is jealous some former Black stars are having now. But they had no choice but to vote for their fellow Black person – President Obama. Otherwise they would be slaves now again. Let’s enjoy and work hard another 4 years with Obama as President.

    I agree! This is a dumb ass article! Obama is the President of the U.S. period. What do you expect in the arena of security? I expect more from this site but everyday I get more and more disappointed. For Dr. Watkins, who constantly brags about his status as scholar, this discourse if pitiful!
