From Politistick: Joshua Friedlein is not a political activist. In fact, it doesn’t appear that he is incredibly politically minded at all. At least he’s not vocal about too many things political on his Facebook. What he is, however, is a student at Umpqua Community College in Roseberg, Oregon; the site of the horrific shooting yesterday in which 10 people, including the shooter, died and 7 more were wounded. He’s also president of the Associated Students Umpqua Community College Leadership Team and a Student Success Assistant at the college.
He also happened to be on the campus when the shooting took place and experienced the lockdown and clearing out of everyone on campus. After living through that and listening to Barack Obama’s speech politicizing the shooting, shaming those who defend their Second Amendment rights, and calling for more gun control, Friedlein took to Facebook to let Obama know exactly what he thought about his words.
