Breaking: Public Advocate To "Meet" President Obama In Morning
Public Advocate volunteers will "meet" President Barack Obama on Tuesday morning September 8 prior to his speech at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia in a traditional, for Public Advocate, and peaceful manner.
Students at area schools are being given free stickers with the Gadsen flag emblem and the words "Dont Tread on Me" for students to wear for the President's speech at Wakefield High School. Folded up Gadsen flags are being given free to students to unfurl or hold up during the speech.
The gadsen flag has become a symbol for Public Advocate, a non-profit group, after Kenneth Glatney was beaten for distributing them in St. Louis, Mo. during a healthcare townhall meeting.
Public Advocate volunteers have installed small signs at various locations with the words printed "Mr. President, Stay Away from our kids" in the Northern Virginia area.
Public Advocate volunteers will distribute large Gadsen flags, and hold banners that state "Mr. President, Stay Away from our kids" at Wakefield High School.
Public Advocate volunteers will obey all traffic laws, remove all signs and discarded materials to avoid litter or abandoned property laws, respect any security precautions by any uniformed law enforcement and not impede pedestrians or students or any School officials. There is no sound equipment or use of machinery involved.
Our message at Wakefield High School: Public Advocate is opposing the use of federal powers to interfere with local school systems throughout the country contrary to federal law.
Citation: Federal law expressly forbids the Secretary of Education or any officer from exercising "any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system." 20 U.S.C. § 3403.
Eugene Delgaudio, President of Public Advocate stated the following: "The President or his agents or agencies must cease this illegal activity. Of course speaking at one school is traditional. Expecting all schools to broadcast it and using the Department of Education to provide instructions on "how to assist President Obama to carry out his programs" directed to children is expressly forbidden."
