Anti-Obama demonstrator sexually harasses post office customer in Carlsbad
Today, just after noon, a man who was distributing literature in front of the post office in Carlsbad, and displaying large images of President Obama, harrassed a woman.
A female co-worker of mine was leaving the post office, located at 2772 Roosevelt St., when the demonstrator, one of two 20-something white males, asked her to sign the petition. She refused and kept walking. The man, wearing a white shirt, hat and sunglasses, yelled that she “just wanted to see Obama naked.”
After the incident, I went with another co-worker to confront the man. We refused to sign their petition or take their literature.
The man who had earlier harassed my co-worker said that we were “in love with Obama” and that he was “just like Bush” because they both “have big ears.”
He also claimed that we are “blocked dupes of the New World Order.”
He further contended that “Obama is worse than Hitler.”
When I told him that I was a Jew with relatives who died in the Holocaust, and that I found his rhetoric particularly offensive, he claimed that Holocaust survivors and Jews have told him that they agree Obama is just like Hitler, and that his organization—supporters of ex-convict and alleged cult leader and anti-Semite Lyndon LaRouche—has many Jewish leaders, but when pressed to name any of them or provide evidence that Jews support LaRouche, he refused. He said it would be “stupid” to provide evidence and insisted that I “go away” and “go back to Facebook and Twitter.”
He also refused to give me his name but did say that he was from Los Angeles.
When reminded that he had sexually harassed our co-worker and owed her an apology, he ignored us and told us to go away.
At that point, as if on cue, a birther arrived.
A middle-aged woman with a clipboard approached and stood between us and the LaRoucheites and asked us to sign her petition to impeach the president since he was not really a U.S. citizen.
When we laughed, she called us “liberal assholes.”
She then asked the LaRoucheites to sign her petition, but they refused, and she walked away.
At that moment, a man leaving the post office parking lot in a minivan rolled down his window and asked the LaRoucheites, incredulously: “You think the president is like Hitler, who murdered 6 million Jews?” He drove off without waiting for an answer, but added, “You’re fucking idiots!” as he pulled out onto Roosevelt Street.
Then we went back to work.
