Wednesday marked a day that legends are made of in the annals of American Law Enforcement. President Obama gave a speech at the Oakley Lindsay Civic Center in Quincy, Illinois. World Net Daily’s Chelsea Schilling reports that a group of about 200 Tea Party protesters, many of them grandmotherly types, gathered outside the auditorium. They were carrying signs that had slogans like “Give Us Liberty, Not Debt” written on them. They wore red, white and blue shirts. I know, I know- it is very shocking for you to learn that American grandmas would behave in this fashion.
Not about to allow this kind of dangerous and disruptive behavior with the President, Himself, in town, the Secret Service ordered these radical grandmothers to go across the street. So, across the street they went – and began to sing songs - like “God Bless America” and “The Star Spangled Banner.” I hope your children are not looking over your shoulder as you read all this horror.
Well, that just did it. The Quincy Deputy Chief of Police, Ron Dreyer, ordered a fully armed, helmeted, baton-wielding SWAT Team to march in close order drill formation and place themselves between the Tea Party Grandmas and the auditorium wherein The President was situated. Thank goodness.
“When hundreds of tea-party protesters – including many elderly women – gathered outside a civic center where President Obama was giving a public speech Wednesday, they were surprised to be greeted by police dispatched in full riot gear…
… About 200 protesters peacefully rallied outside the civic center, carrying signs that read “Give Us Liberty Not Debt” and yellow “Don’t Tread On Me” flags, the Quincy Herald-Whig reported. Protesters waved U.S. flags and shouted “Remember in November” and “You work for us.”…
… After Obama’s motorcade arrived, a Secret Service agent instructed protesters to move across the street. The crowd began singing “God Bless, America” and the National Anthem. Quincy Deputy Police Chief Ron Dreyer ordered police in full riot gear to march up the street and stand between the tea partiers and the civic center.
Snipers were also spotted on the rooftop of the building….”
Watching that SWAT Team video comforts me, seeing what a great nation can accomplish under a Dear Leader like President Obama, assisted by police who are fearless in the face of overwhelming odds and the imminent threats to our national security posed by groups such as The Singing Tea Party Grandmas.
Ah, me. We can all sleep well tonight.
