If you wear Republican or Tea Party clothing, the Obama administration considers you a security threat.

A group of college republicans say they were denied entry into President Obama’s speech at the University of Central Missouri on Wednesday for security reasons.

Missouri College Republicans State Treasurer Courtney Scott told Campus Reform on Thursday that an unidentified police officer told the group they were barred from the event for “security reasons and for the president’s protection.”

“You will not be allowed any further,” the officer allegedly told the group of six College Republicans, dressed in republican and tea party clothing, as they attempted to enter the event.

Scott said each member of the group had a ticket to enter the event and that they arrived early complying with all rules.

“Obama was scheduled to speak at around 4 p.m., so around 3:30 pm we gathered our stuff up,” said Scott. “They had announced that there were to be no posters or anything so we dropped our stuff off. We were not carrying anything. We followed all the rules.”

Scott said the officer’s reasoning for stopping them seemed a bit odd.

“I hate to make allegations but it was just very suspicious that we were not allowed in,” she said.

A bit of advice to Republican and Tea Party activists?

If you were wearing "identifiable" clothing, it can be assumed (by security) that you were at an event with the intent to be disruptive. That's left-wing behavior and is juvenile. You are not Code Pink, so don't act like it. Granted, Code Pink and other outfits often find their way into such events, but these are not the tactics you want to emulate. There are plenty of devious, "sub-rosa" lefty tactics you can develop that are much more useful and effective.

Immaterial. The left spent 2001-2009 whining they weren't allowed to throw pies at President Bush; their Fuhrer can at least take some verbal disagreement.

Agreed.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst the wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matt. 10:16

Loudly proclaiming you're against Obama by wearing Tea Party/RNC clothing and holding signs and banners isn't going to get you in the door. Be covert, not overt, and you'll have greater success.

Yet another fine example of bipartisanship on behalf of the President. 1273 days remaining . . . .
