President Barack Obama has become the worst nightmare of the Secret Service.
Despite heartfelt pleas from residents of Roseburg, Oregon to stay away and let them bury their murdered loved ones in peace, the ignorer-in-chief tapped your treasury for millions of dollars, packed up his bodyguards and their tons of paraphernalia and crossed the country to visit with the families of the nine dead and nine injured who got mowed down by serial killer Chris Harper Mercer at Umpqua Community College on October 1.
Obama would not listen. What he faced when his never-leave-home-without-it helicopter, Marine One, arrived at the little timber town 180 miles south of Portland was an absolutely livid armed greeting committee. The crowd was not only bearing “Obama Unwelcome” and “Go Back to Kenya” signs, but holsters filled with firearms.
Organizers of the protest that drew thousands of empathizers on social media had a plea of their own: although you “have the right to carry what you wish,” they advised, better to bring a handgun than a rifle. So even at the risk of driving the Secret Service nuts, many of them did just that.
Bruce Rester, a retired truck driver wearing a holstered handgun strapped across his chest, said, “Everybody should carry a gun. An armed society is a polite society.”
If the president had sent an advance team, as a real politician would, he’d have had a scouting report on the lion’s den he was entering. But listening and thinking are two things this president doesn’t dabble in.
Before responders had finished the body count the day of the shootings, Obama was on TV making excuses for the killer. Putting on his angry mask the president recalled, “As I said just a few months ago, and I said a few months before that, and I said each time we see one of these mass shootings, our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It does not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel. And it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America.”
Yet for all his bluster and executive orders, Obama has not been able to get rid of the Second Amendment — your right to keep and bear arms.
The Los Angeles Times reported how Don Moody, an aircraft machinist, drove five hours from Seattle with a sign that read, “The Second Amendment Protects the First.” Moody said. “We don’t want quantity of guns. We want quality of guns – in the right hands at the right time. I believe the government and the country are going in exactly the wrong direction.”
Warned of Obama’s visit on Friday, protesters of his sacrilege began arriving around sunrise. One business owner said, “It’s our God-given right to protect ourselves.” She wanted the president to understand that.
The funeral corteges were still daily events when Obama thrust himself into the maelstrom to promote national disarmament. Some protesters carried Gadsden (“Don’t Tread on Me”) flags and “Obama Go Home” signs.
Rick Breen, a retired Army veteran, said he was there to support Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin, who resented Obama’s visit. Breen said he wanted “to let Obama know he’s not welcome here.” He added, “I only wish a student had been armed. We could have stopped that murderer in his tracks.”
The cost of Obama’s visit to Roseburg should be reckoned down to the last penny by a House Select Committee on Executive Stupidity. (We can’t afford Michelle’s opulent excursions any more either.) If congress won’t impeach him, the least they can do is keep him under lock and key. They can do that by shutting off his allowance.
The Obama regime has armed itself to the teeth. As watchdog “Open the Books” founder Adam Andrzejewski recently reported, EPA’s 200 “special agents” are not only armed with $75 million a year for criminal enforcement, but millions more just spent for “guns, body armor, camouflage equipment, unmanned aircraft, amphibious assault ships, radar and night-vision gear and other military-style weaponry and surveillance.” The air and water police!
Like any ambitious tyrant, this disarmament president means to confiscate every gun so you can’t defend yourself and your family when his “community organizers” and political goons come calling with their boxcars and AK-47s to transport you to New Auschwitz, where you will be treated to a shower before you are allowed into the crematorium.
Now is the time for all good men to come to the ruination of the despotism thrust upon them — by gunfire or whatever means necessary.
