Angry Mob Descends on Ohio State House to Protest Obama Mountain Name Change
LGF Ohio News Report from Columbus, Ohio’s capitol city. August 31, 2015 3:00 PM.
Things are out of control in Columbus today. All available local police officers have been called downtown to the area surrounding the State Capitol at Broad and High Streets. Ohio residents are pouring into the Capitol City by the bus load to make a stand against Washington DC and what they see as the United States government taking away a beloved Ohio symbol to one of Ohio’s Greatest Presidents ever.
Since last evening when it was announced President Obama called for Ohio’s largest mountain located in Alaska to be renamed more and more angry Ohio citizens have joined the protest.
What once was known as Mount McKinley in honor of Ohio-born President William McKinley will be given the lowly name of some unknown Alaska natives that originally called it Denali. Ohio citizens, some in their Hoverounds others being pushed in their wheelchairs, were out in force protesting the renaming and the taking of Ohio’s mountain by President Obama.
The protest does seem to be mainly elderly people who most likely are the only people that care that it was named after an Ohio president and watch FOX News. This reporter asked one of the younger attendees why he was joining. “Well, I am here to assist my grandfather who sometimes needs to be steadied when he stands and gets a little too vocal. He tends to hyperventilate and then is prone to pass out. So, I am here to help him not to fall over and hurt himself.”
When asked if he too is upset with the forced name change, the young man said “I never heard of William McKinley and I sure did not know there was a mountain named after him in Alaska. All I know about Alaska is that Bristol Palin lives there and I think she is pretty hot!”
Things turned ugly when Ohio Governor John Kasich inflamed the protesters by telling them this was all caused by President Obama overstepping his boundaries and going over the top of Ohio’s citizens in his latest power grab. Kasich added that if Ohio can help him get the Republican nomination and then be elected President he will reverse this ugly decision and make sure that in the future it would be named after an Ohio President. He has his mind set on changing it to Mount Kasich.
Shouts of “Kenyan Usurper” and “Go Away Hussein Obama” were interspersed with the singing of Beautiful Ohio and God Bless America as protesters threw used depends in a pile on the statehouse grounds and then lighting them into an odorous bonfire that threatened to catch the dry mulch in the flowerbeds on fire and cause hundreds of dollars in damage. Police were forced to don gas masks to be able to hold their positions and keep the extremely agitated crowd under control.
Things have quieted down at the time of this early afternoon report as most of the protesters are now napping peacefully on the lawn in their clean new emergency undergarments. Police suspect there will not be too much protesting today as many in the crowd will need at least a full day to recover from all the angry energy expended last evening when the news broke and the protesters gathered and first started displaying protest signs and chanting.
Local police are not going to leave the area until rumors of outside agitators can be dismissed or if proven, the agitators can be stopped and turned back at Columbus International Airport or one of the many police check points on all major highway entrances to the city.
The agitators in question are from Breitbart News and led by known rabble rouser Ben Shapiro. Breitbartians, as they are often called, inject themselves into government issues just to rile up their readers to keep them driven to read their web site. There is also talk that this may cause FOX News to show up and do their FOX and Friends news show from inside the Capitol’s rotunda tomorrow morning.
Local authorities and Democratic Mayor Michael Coleman, a known friend and supporter of Barack Obama, hoped FOX would decide to stay in New York and not use this as another way to rile an already overheated and aged crowd on a hot summer day.
