Oh the Irony: 42 Year Old Omar J. Gonzalez Arrested by Secret Service Inside White House … Scaled the White House Fence (VIDEO)
OK, WHO SEES THE IRONY IN AN INDIVIDUAL WITH A HISPANIC LAST NAME SCALING A FENCE AND BEING ARRESTED?
42 year old Omar J. Gonzalez of Copperas Cove, Texas was arrested Friday night after he climbed over the White House fence and made it through the North Portico doors of the White House. The White House staff members were evacuated; however, the Obama family were not at home. President Obama and his daughters had left via helicopter for the presidential retreat at Camp David, MD, just minutes before the incident. Following Gonzalez’s apprehension, he was taken to George Washington Medical Center for a medical evaluation.
Just curious, why was he arrested, why was this considered a crime? Isn’t this just a microcosm of our Southern border and the fence jumping that occurs every day? For Barack Obama and his administration, the illegals coming into the United States by scaling the Mexico-US border fence are not committing any crime. Barack Obama does not believe in border security, so why does he believe in security for the White House? Oh that’s right, that is different. For illegals who “illegally” scale a fence and cross into America get amnesty, but scale the White House fence and you get arrested.
A Texas man who scaled the White House fence made it through the North Portico doors on Friday night before being apprehended, the Secret Service said.
The intruder, Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, was arrested just inside the doors and taken to George Washington University Hospital after complaining of chest pains, said Ed Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman.
None of the Obamas were home when the security breach occurred about 7:20 p.m., but White House staff members were evacuated as a precaution, officials said. President Obama and his daughters had left for the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md., just minutes before the incident.
Mr. Gonzalez, of Copperas Cove, Tex., was not armed and was not carrying a bag or a backpack when officials spotted him jumping the fence on the Pennsylvania Avenue side, Mr. Donovan said. He ignored several calls for him to stop as officers gave chase.
No shots were fired and the White House guard dogs were not called out to stop him.

Of course then their is the other metaphor that this incident presents, if Obama can’t protect the White House from a 42 year old man, how is he going to protect America against terrorism and ISIS?
