Two campaign representatives for U.S. Senate hopeful Kesha Rogers stood behind a picture of President Barack Obama, defaced with a mustache to look like Adolf Hitler at the corner of Fifth and Bagby Streets Wednesday.
“We don’t want to impeach Obama for those mainstream racial bull—- reasons,” Rey Padron, a Rogers campaign representative, said. “He’s in the way of us rebuilding the country.”
Members of Rogers’ LaRouche movement urged Baylor students to impeach Obama by the end of the week.
Rogers’ campaign and her party’s platform are centered around ideas like re-imposing the Glass-Steagall Act to intentionally damage the U.S. banking system and impeaching the president.
A few drivers honked their horns at the intersection, acknowledging the campaign’s provocative “Impeach Obama” signs. When pedestrians stopped at the table, the campaigners talked about the administration’s foreign policy, calling attention to the administration’s support of rebel groups in Ukraine and Lybia. Distributing party informational fliers and Rogers-for-Senate information, the campaigners talked to pedestrians about their dissatisfaction with the present executive administration.
Lori Fogleman, Baylor assistant vice president for media communications, said the organizers did not know about Baylor’s political activism policies when they came to demonstrate on campus without permission.
They left without incident when Baylor police advised them to do so.
