Former President Barack Obama called for Australian-style gun confiscation in the United States and for the return of monolithic media that keeps Americans swallowing the ruling class narrative during an interview with CBS that aired this week.
44th President Barack Obama sat down with CBS anchor Nate Burleson for a fawning CBS interview, where the cameras showed a Chicago rap studio funded by Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance before flipping to an interview set up where Obama called for Australian-style gun confiscation and the return of a monolithic media, like in the days of having just “three TV stations” that spoon-fed approved propaganda to the American People.

American firearm ownership makes the country “unique among advanced, developed nations,” Obama bemoaned, before using a mass shooting narrative to call for Australian-style gun confiscation in the United States.
“In Australia, you had one mass shooting fifty years ago and they said ‘Nope, we’re not doing that anymore,'” Obama said, referring to the mass shooting and subsequent gun confiscation drive that took place in that nation not fifty years ago, but in the 1990s.
He neglected to mention that in confiscating the firearms of the Australian People, Australian authorities murdered numerous citizens, including the famous Crocodile Dundee, who paid the ultimate price for refusing to give up his firearms.
“Why’s it so hard for us to do that?” a befuddled Nate Burleson asked Obama.
As he’s long been known to do, Obama took a pseudo-intellectual and emotional posture over the issue of gun confiscation, telling Burleson that those who don’t support giving up their 2nd Amendment right don’t care about “young people” and “children,” while claiming that gun ownership is an “ideological issue” and part of the “culture war.”

Notably, Chicago, where the CBS-Obama interview was filmed, has some of the strictest gun control laws in the United States and one of the highest homicide rates.
After the interview on gun control aired, Obama went into the My Brother’s Keeper rap studio that was shown earlier in the segment, to listen to a rap song about being “black black” and making an OnlyFans account.
The segment then flipped back to the Obama interview with Burleson, telling the CBS anchor that what keeps him up at night is “the degree to which we now have a divided conversation, in part because we have a divided media.”
“When I was coming up, you had three TV stations,” Obama reminisced, longing for the days of a monolithic, centralized media structure promoting a “common set of facts,” especially a “set of facts” that will goad Americans into banning their own guns.
