Following the horrific attacks in Paris, France, which were carried out by the Islamic State terror group, landmarks around the world lit themselves up red, white, and blue to show solidarity and honor the victims. The outpouring of support has been unprecedented, but you might want to check out the lights at our very own White House, since it’s interesting what’s going on there, to say the least.
Below are pictures of the various landmarks, and as you can see, they’re lit up to resemble the flag of France.

Anyways, you get the idea. They’re all lit up, and it’s for very good reason – the people of Paris need to know the world stands behind them and against the terrorist scum of ISIS. But with that in mind, why is it that our very own White House has not been lit up once since the attacks?
Now, if you remember correctly, Barack Obama had it lit up like a damn rainbow after the Supreme Court created the right for gays to marry, and it stayed that way for several days. Is that more important than the loss of now 132 lives with another 350 or so injured? Well, the proof is in the pudding, and the pudding says yes, especially after Obama showed up late to the “moment of silence” held at the G20 Summit on Sunday. Yeah, that really happened.

Although, I’m at a complete loss as to why. You would think if his commitment to fighting radical Islam was serious, this would be a no-brainer. You would think that if he really wanted to show unity with our oldest ally, who helped us achieve independence from Great Britain, this would be a no-brainer. You would think that if he was truly disgusted by Friday’s attacks, this would be a no-brainer.
So, I guess the real question now is, are all these things simply a ruse for him? I’ll leave that for you to decide, but I do highly recommend spreading this around so others can see how disrespectful our president is.
