LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --Does a fork or dinner knife pose an unacceptable danger to President Barack Obama?
One wouldnt think so, given the hundreds of lunches and dinners hes attended ranging from state dinners to political fundraisers to run-of-the-mill stops on the rubber-chicken circuit.
However, at one such lunch Friday afternoon, guests heard an unusual announcement that they needed to hand over their silverware for security reasons.
Its very important that you use your utensils as soon as possible, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials board member Raquel Regalado told about 1000 delegates at the groups annual conference.
Regalado hurried the diners to finish up their salads and pre-cut chicken breasts, saying that the Secret Service required that there be no knives at the tables and that the forks be rounded up before Obama entered the room.
As you know, were having another speaker and there is some Secret Service involved. So theres a reason why theres no knives at your table and the forks will be collected ..And Im not joking, Regalado told the audience in a ballroom at Disneys Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. So, like the good Hispanic mother Im here to tell you to please, eat your lunch.
A Secret Service spokesman confirmed that the agency made the request, but said such requirements are common at large events where the president speaks at about the same time people are dining....

OBAMA DOESN’T TRUST LATINOS!!! RACISM!!!! RACISM!!!!!
One commenter at the link says....
“Stick a fork in him, he’s done!”.
WOW, JUST WOW, if bush did this we wouldn;t hear an end to it,....
Without apologies, or even explanation
Don't these idiots know they are being treated as "tolerated" inferiors?
” - - - such requirements are common at large events where the president speaks at about the same time people are dining - - - “
Is this SS code for “with Obama in Office, we will all be eating from hand to mouth?”
It may be true but the dialog sounds like satire.
Racist! Mexico isn’t real happy with Obamy for Fast and Furious. He might just tick all the ‘hispanics’ off before he’s done.
Cue “Paranoid” by Black Sabbath!
Did this ever happen during the Bush Years, either one? or even the Clintoon Years? I dare say, “NOT!”
WTFIGO? Is this the New Dictator? the new Stalin? the new Chairman Mao?, no, the dirt ball couldn’t shine their shoes, but he can expect to be the new Hugo Chavez, the Mentor of his “DREAMS” Fictional bullshit book, Mr. William Ayers, self confessed Pentagon Bomber and Terrorist Extrodinaire! When are Americans going to rise up and throw this fraud out on his skinny gay ass???
I've been hoping to live long enough to say the equivalent about 0bama's dear friend, Bernardine Dohrn.
The Spork Prez
He associates with murderous scum. The left tend to project their worst drives and behaviors on others.
Fork you, Obama
"...my guess is he had a premonition about forks, just like the coconuts....by the time he gets up to the G's..H's..I's...and J K's....he'll be fun to watch"
He wants their vote but doesn’t trust them enough to have dinner with them. You said it...Priceless!
20 years ago, I attended a Pavarotti concert ... in DC. There was a slightly higher than I expected security presence, but they weren't searching people or doing anything I thought was onerous. I had a knife in my pocket (as always), a fact of which officialdom was completely unaware and unconcerned. I cannot have been the only person so equipped.
Turns out GHW Bush and the Prime Minister of Japan were both in attendance.
0bama's paranoid arrogance is astonishing.
I wonder how many of these Hispanics actually realize the incredible disrespect shown them?
chain the witch to Jane Fonda first, it’d be a twofer. :)
The truly frightening part is this : in his mind, and the mind of his army of flying monkeys, the requirement was both reasonable and justified.
He must assume that most of us know more about his hidden agendas than we actually do!
Think about it.
In the hands of the right person, yes
I’m so stealing that.
OK ... So what is there that we don't know, but that Bam-Bam thinks we might know ... or is afraid we might know ...
Is there something even worse than his complete hiding of his past? Worse than his past claims to be Kenyan? His association with communist terrorists? Larry Sinclair? Choom Gang? Worse than "Fast and Furious"? Worse than 0bamacare?
Oh, my, I didn’t know spoons, forks, and case knives were weapons. I went to visit a friend in the Texas hill country over the weekend. How do I know she wasn’t going to kill me with a spoon? I survived with my life even though we used knives, forks, spoons.
Beware of these weapons in your houseand watch for anyone coming in the door with a plastic spoon - don’t be a statistic! Maybe put a sign on your front door - DANGEROUS SPOONS, FORKS, CASE KNIFES, METAL OR PLASTIC, MUST BE LEFT OUTSIDE! THIS MEANS YOU!
I can understand the SS wanted the knives used to be collected before our king enters the room...
Seriously how much damage can a fork do to a person...even if they got close enough to lunge at the dork...
I can only imagine how much the threat level has gone up with the antics of this asshat president...but forks...come on..
How could they have confiscated forks and there not be a word about drinking straws? What if someone blew a pea from the salad through a straw aimed at the President and it killed or maimed him?
“Cowards die many times, heroes die but once..” - or something like that.
"Were the forks and knives taken away from the Hollywood elite at their $30,000 meals?"
Did they drink from paper cups? Obviously no one thought that a glass, coffee cup or bottle of taco sauce could be broken and used like a straight razor? DUH !!
That one question, driven hard, could end this. There it is...not only racist overtones but class warfare.
Obama rode the OWS crap and here he is not only kissing their tail, but showing them blatant preference over security? I hope the Superpacs are paying attention.
Wow, well said.
about the coconuts...
that time he was in Hawaii didnt they have to strip the trees of cocnutgs along the route he took..
or am I wrong ???
something like that ...
Some years ago, my husband and I were having lunch at a Pizza Hut. Midway through our meal, some guy comes rushing in the door, obviously upset and angry, yelling and making a scene towards the cashier and cooks behind the counter. The restaurant was semi-full, and as you can imagine, everyone had stopped eating and talking to watch what was clearly a tense (and possibly dangerous) situation.
After a minute or so of yelling and cursing, the "intruder" rushes behind the counter and grabs a utensil out of a canister sitting near the pick-up station. There's an audible gasp from everyone in the restaurant! Oh my gosh... what's he gonna do?!? Then, from the cashier's stand comes a sarcastic voice: "Dude... it's a spatula!"
Moments later, the angry guy exits the restaurant. Needless to say, hubby and I have not returned.
trip to India
Sad doesn’t quite cover it. Washington must be spinning.
Hey Diddle Diddle,
The Cat and the fiddle,
The Coward jumped over the moon,
The little Dog laughed to see such fun,
And the Dish ran away with the SSpoon!
All of the above has been laying the groundwork for the REAL change.
If you believe it can't get any worse, that is truly scary.
The Great Uniter is continuing to stonewall the Congress, the Supreme Court and the American people and getting away with it!
OK ... so what do you think the "REAL change" is supposed to be?
yeah , but they were all white latinos.
Next event, they’ll just serve “disciplinary loaf.”
Dictator's do not trust anyone with even the most basic implements. They are constantly paranoid and do everything in their power to control their environment. Obama is starting to show his colors. He KNOWS the jig is up.
Let this serve as a warning, folks. When someone with narcissistic personality disorder starts to become paranoid, you run the risk of violence. Obama is going to start getting violent. He's going to start casting aspersions at large groups of people in the country, labeling them as dangerous "fringe groups."
I predict another Waco or Ruby Ridge. He's becoming very unstable, and it should be a concern for Americans.
