Obama’s scheduled visit on Friday, in conjunction with the memorial services for victims of last week’s shootings at Umpqua Community College, has angered some in the community who do not want the president pushing his gun-control agenda and grandstanding at the funerals.

Obama stepped up to the White House lectern within hours of the killings to shamelessly politicize the tragedy and tout gun control. He admitted that he had no problem politicizing the incident and, in fact, said the issue is “something we should politicize.”

A Facebook page, created by Roseburg residents to organize an effort to protest Obama’s visit, has gone viral in less than 24 hours.

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.

So far, at least 2,800 are planning to protest the president’s visit.

David Jacques, publisher of the Roseburg Beacon, warned Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Monday that the people of Roseburg would not welcome Obama because “he wants to come to our community and stand on the corpses of our loved ones to make some sort of a political point.”

“There’s an effort to keep the families isolated from this.” Jacques said.
