Oregon Town Blasts Obama's "Inappropriate," "Disrespectful" Visit After College Shooting

Residents of Roseberg, Oregon are blasting President Barack Obama’s trip to the city a week after an anti-Christian misfit* killed nine students and injured  nine more in a writing class at Umpqua Community College before committing suicide when police arrived.


Numerous survivors of the attack and the family of one of the victims have already blasted President Obama’s immediate grandstanding for gun control just hours after the shooting took place and before facts were known.

This divisive President’s opportunism has clearly angered local residents.

President Barack Obama will travel to Oregon this week to visit privately with families of the victims of last week’s shooting at a community college.

However the trip has angered locals in Roseburg who say Obama is ‘not welcome’ in the town because the visit will be nothing but a ‘grandstand for political purposes’.

Leading the chorus is David Jaques, the publisher of conservative newspaper the Roseburg Beacon.

‘I think that’s very inappropriate, and I think it’s disrespectful to the families,’ Jaques told Breitbart News.

Jaques believes Obama held a press conference straight after the shooting, in which nine people were killed, with another nine injures.

In Jaques’ opinion, the press conference was too soon.

‘We haven’t even identified bodies, we’ve still got incident command trying to contain the scene, and he’s holding a press conference 3,000 miles away from here, telling — almost implying that he could have single-handedly prevented this if the Congress would have listened to him.’

‘I think he admitted it himself.

‘His visit here isn’t a re-election campaign stop, but it is a campaign stop for an agenda that he and his associates believe is important.

‘And that is to take away Americans right to own firearms.’

‘It shows not only a total disdain, a disregard for Constitution, but our very citizens, especially those of us right here in Douglas County.

‘We believe in the Second Amendment. We believe in the whole Constitution.’

In a separate interview with Mediaite, Jaques accused Obama of wanting to ‘stand on the corpses of our loved ones and make some kind of political point’.


Obama will swing through Roseberg on Friday, as part of a four day West Coast trip.
