Democrats in Galveston County, Texas are angrily denouncing a decision by one of their commissioner's to host a screening of a film that depicts President Barack Obama as a socialist and the son of a communist author.
County Commissioner Ken Clark, a conservative Republican, plans to screen the film in a public building on Nov. 1, according to the Galveston Daily News
But Democratic County Constable Derreck Rose says he hopes to persuade enough people to buy tickets to the event to disrupt it if Clark can't be convinced to cancel the showing.
He said the film's theme alone, titled "Dreams from my Real Father," is bad enough. But he said showing in a state agriculture building located right next door to a facility named for a local civil rights activist makes it even worse.
“To have a movie that depicts the president as some sort of Nazi in a county building named for a champion of civil rights is just not right,” Rose said.
According to the Daily News, the controversial film, argues that Obama is a socialist who is not really the son of Kenyan-born Barack Hussein Obama Sr. but rather the child of communist author Frank Marshall Davis.
Agriculture extension agent William Johnson, who leased the building to Clark for $255, told the Daily News that he had no idea what Clark planned to do with his three-hour rental. But he said even if he had known about the film, he would have leased the building to him anyway.
"It’s not my role to make an assessment of the event he is paying for," he told the newspaper.
Besides, he added, "This is a First Amendment issue."
