Local UFC Fighter In Trouble Again For Obama Comments
January 6, 2012 7:29 PM

Reporting Adam Carter

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Jacob Volkmann admits he’s trying to make a name for himself as a fighter. The problem is it’s getting him in trouble at his other job.

Following a fight last Friday, the 31-year old White Bear Lake man was being interviewed by Joe Rogan. Volkmann told Rogan that President Obama should call him to schedule a “glass-ectomy.” Rogan then asked what a “glass-ectomy” is.

“A glass-ectomy is when you cut your bellybutton out and put a piece of glass in there so when you have your head up your butt you can see where you’re going.” Volkmann said.

The White Bear Lake School District apparently was not amused. Volkmann, who’s an assistant wrestling coach for White Bear Lake, said the district put him on paid administrative leave.

“I thought it was kind of a funny joke, it was meant for humor,” Volkmann said. “And the school took it the wrong way.”

If the story sounds familiar, it is.

When asked who he’d like to fight next following a fight in late 2010, Volkmann said “Obama” because “someone’s got to knock some sense into that idiot.”

That comment not only got Volkmann put on leave from the school district, but also caught the attention of the U.S. Secret Service. They questioned him not long after.

So why go there again?

“I’m doing it for a couple reasons,” Volkmann said. “To get my name out there, and I’m trying to get a message across. I don’t think (President Obama) is ever going to pay attention.”

A call was made to the White Bear Lake School District Friday evening, but the call has not yet been returned.

What reporter calls a school district office on Friday evening and expects to talk to anyone but the janitor?

White Bear Lake School District sure doesn't like people who don't support the regime, do they?

They like a company man, toe the line type of guy.

It doesn't even make any sense. Wouldn't a glass-ectomy be the removal of glass, rather than the installation of said glass?

This. A navelectomomy would have made more sense.
