In the wake of the shooting in Roseburg Oregon last week, the president immediately took to his podium and angrily told the nation that such instances had become “routine”, and would stay that way without further gun control laws.
Admitting he has no qualms about politicizing the incident, Obama is scheduled to fly to Oregon in conjunction with the first funerals of the Umpqua College shooting victims.
But not if community leaders and Roseburg residents have any say in the matter.
A Facebook page has been setup in an effort to organise a protest. The page, called Defend Roseburg-Deny Barack Obama, states:
The anointed one his majesty king 0bama and the White House have announced a Friday arrival in Roseburg, Oregon in the wake of Oct 1st’s horrific tragedy at UCC.
Polarizing as usual, Mr 0bama has insisted on politicizing the event as a conduit for increased executive orders on gun control via means of his pen, and his phone.
This blatant disrespect of the victims families, the community and the town of Roseburg, Mr 0bama’s administration is flying not just the 747 that is airforce one to Oregon, but a three helicopter team of Sikorsky’s that make up HMX-1, known as Marine one to travel to Roseburg at the taxpayers expense.
We need a lot of people. Please come show your support for Roseburg, not the little man who has no respect for the constitution.
David Jacques, publisher of the Roseburg Beacon, also told Bill O’Reilly Monday that the people of Roseburg would not welcome Obama.
Jacques said that community leaders, including Douglas County commissioners, the police chief and local sheriff, do not want Obama to come grandstand in Roseburg for political purposes.
“He wants to come to our community and stand on the corpses of our loved one to make some sort of a political point.” said Jacques, noting that Obama was grandstanding before the body count had even been filed.
Jacques also noted that the Westboro Baptist Church was slated to arrive in Roseburg in an effort to disrupt funerals of the victims.
“There’s an effort to keep the families isolated from this.” Jacques said.
