Gun-Control Activist Posts ‘F*** Police Officers,’ ‘F*** The NRA’ Rant. One Week Later, She Gets Invited To Meet President Obama

In late December, a gun-control activist, Amanda Gailey, who’s Facebook page lists her as, ‘director of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence and associated professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’, posted an F-word-laden rant directed at the NRA, lawmakers and police — and about a week later was invited by the White House to meet President Barack Obama.

The Blaze Reports:

In late December, a gun-control activist posted an F-word-laden rant directed at the NRA, lawmakers and police — and about a week later was invited by the White House to meet President Barack Obama.

A Facebook page belonging to Amanda Gailey lists her as director of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence and associate professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. On Dec. 28, the following was posted on the Facebook page (profanities redacted):

KETV-TV reported that the White House last week called Gailey to personally invite her to meet Obama as part of his speech in Lincoln Wednesday.

The station added that nine other members of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence were slated to attend the event as well.

Omaha.com — which indicated Gailey teaches English at the University and is president of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence — said she got to speak to Obama in Baxter Arena.

“I got to shake his hand and thank him for the work he was doing on gun control,” Gailey told Omaha.com. “That was really exciting.”

It’s unclear if the White House knew of Gailey’s Facebook post in question before inviting her to meet Obama.

The White House press office on Thursday didn’t immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment on the matter.

Earlier Gailey told KETV-TV — which also reported that she’s founder of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence — that “Obama’s executive actions are an important first step.”

Other posts on her Facebook page strike a similar tone. One screenshot shows a November post — apparently removed Thursday — that pokes fun at “Christianists” who are described as “people we should distinguish from Christianity the way we distinguish Islamists from Islam.” It then turns attention to Ted Cruz and offers an image that underscores gun control:
