RedState broke the news Thursday that Shinzo Abe (the Japanese Prime Minister) was shot to death. Shinzo Abe had been a friend in America’s fight against communist forces.
The world responded to the tragedy in the same way. Nearly everyone said something to recall the friend, solid stateman and statesman. Because the White House was absent for some time after this tragedy, I mean “almost everybody”. The White House was silent on this matter as more statements were made by world leaders, one of which came from Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President.

However, Biden finally issued a statement. The statement contained remarks about Abe, which was hollow, despite his personal experiences. It also mentioned how his leadership over the Japanese people was admirable. But, at the end, it became too much for the White House to contain its anger. As is their leftist belief, they couldn’t allow this tragedy to pass and decided to make some political statements on Abe’s behalf.
” While there are many details we don’t yet know, it is clear that violence against civilians and gun violence are not acceptable. This statement was made by Biden.

Abe, Japan’s longest serving Prime Minister, did much good for Japan and the rest of the world during his tenure. Abe deserved more respect than having one side’s agenda put in a statement that would be etched in world history.
This is likely why Biden’s handlers added it to his statement. A statement by Japan’s most trusted ally will be used to discuss the future reaction to Abe’s death. This statement will include a call for gun control.
To be precise, Japan has extremely strict gun control laws. Since 1958, their laws state that “No person shall possess a firearm or firearms or a sword or swords.”
The gun Abe used to assassinate him was made by Abe.

It is disgusting, but it’s typical for the left to be so focused on their agenda that they use an assassination attempt to advance their narrative.
Abe should have gotten better. But when it comes down to radical western left ideology, you shouldn’t expect “better”.
