VIA| David Jacques, publisher of the conservative newspaper Roseburg Beacon, had a very clear message to Obama after his speech about the terrible murders in Roseburg, Oregon.
Jacques was extremely disappointed to see Obama push an agenda in response to the event, instead of being mindful of the grieving families.
He went on to tell the President that he was not welcome in Roseburg.
Bizpac Review reported on the powerful statement:
David Jacques said that because Obama “has no connection with this community”, it would be “very inappropriate and … disrespectful to the families” of the victims to make an appearance there to further politicize the event.
While authorities were still in the process of containing the scene and identifying the bodies, the president implied “he single-handedly could have prevented this if Congress would have listened to him,” Jacques told a reporter.
Any appearance there would be nothing more than a “campaign stop” to push an agenda “to take away Americans’ right to own firearms.”
“It shows not only a total disdain and disregard for our Constitution, but our very citizens, but especially those of us right here in Douglas county,” he said, adding, “We believe in the Second Amendment. We believe in the whole Constitution.”
I don’t understand how we can get behind President Obama who turns the murders of several innocent young people into a political stepping stone.
David Jacques, we stand with you.
We hope politicians never use tragedies like this to further their own agenda. This is a time of grieving – not for political gain.
