Justice Dept finally finds ‘real’ scandal; looking at Obama outhouse parade float
BizPac Review ^ | July 12, 2014 | Michele Kirk

Posted on 07/12/2014 5:35:56 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The U.S. Department of Justice has finally found something to do.

Since investigating multiple “fake” scandals like the White House Benghazi cover-up and IRS targeting of conservatives seem so petty, Holder’s crew have been itching for something worthy to investigate.

A controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade is just the ground-breaking case they were hoping for.

“One of the floats included a zombie-like mannequin standing near an outhouse labeled ‘Obama Presidential Library,’” Omaha World-Herald reported.

According to the World-Herald :

"The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Odd Fellows."

Dale Remmich said he created the float because he is upset with the president’s handling of the Veterans Affairs Department, and the mannequin was meant to depict himself, not President Obama.

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the group that organized the annual parade, said the float was registered as political satire and was one of the most popular at this year’s event. Remmich maintains the float was never meant to be racist, but rather an expression of free speech.

The state Democrats are outraged and when Democrats are outraged, well, then it’s a real scandal.

What are they going to do, arrest people for making fun of our Pres, because he’s a Negro? Give me a break.
You could make the same joke about Clinton, or quite honestly Bush, and I hope someone did.

Where’s Harry Truman when you need him? Heat, Kitchen - GET OUT!

So it was okay to have a Reagan mask at a rodeo but not an 0bama mask? This whole 0bama worship is downright scary.

I thought it was George Obama's hut from Kenya.

On second thought, it was too big for that.

My great-great-grandfather was a charter member of the I.O.O.F. in a small town in Missouri in the 1850s. Since he died more than 100 years ago, I can’t ask him his opinion on this scandal. Of course in his day there were no “Presidential Libraries.” And Presidents did not enjoy a lifestyle that Louis XIV would have envied.

“What are they going to do, arrest people for making fun of our Pres”

And this is the irony - this is the exact thing that the 1st Amend was made for - the speech part. Criticizing the political figures could be punished in and of itself. Exactly why the speech part of the 1A.

Idiots! There is nothing racist about an outhouse! Truth is every small town parade had one of these years ago and there was always a politicians name on there...I bet there are pictures out there of the same thing with...gasp...white politicians names on them...

It is act of treason to criticize Party Secretary.

It is late afternoon and Erich Honnecker is looking out the window on the west side of his office. “Good evening Mister Sun. Mister Sun? Mister Sun?”

“Screw you, I’m in the West!””

And BTW what law was supposedly broken by putting a float in a parade?

This is obviously using the government’s power to intimidat dissent.

Why hasn’t holder been impeached yet?

I take it this was Norfolk, Virginia. With all the harm this administration has inflicted upon our military which also means the associated support operations that employs civilians I doubt many were angry.

Never mind likely Norfolk, Nebraska with the call letters in the picture. Still I can see why it would be well received there as well LOL.

Heineman demand border children location
Print
3 hours ago • By Don Walton / Lee Enterprises
Loading…

Gov. Dave Heineman expressed outrage Friday that federal officials have refused to inform him where the 200 immigrant children recently sent to Nebraska are located and who is sponsoring them.

So far, he said, his requests for that information have been denied and he finds that “incredible and outrageous.”

“We will treat them humanely while they are here,” the governor said during an interview on KFAB radio.

“But we want to keep track of them,” he said, while they presumably are being processed for likely deportation because they entered the country illegally.

“I’m very, very concerned,” Heineman told KFAB during a telephone interview he initiated from Nashville, Tennessee, where he’s attending a National Governors Association conference.

“I can’t believe the federal government is secretly transporting them to Nebraska,” he said.

“Our taxpayer dollars could end up potentially paying for their education and other benefits.”

The children are among tens of thousands who have crossed the southern U.S. border illegally

I guess this is what the Kenyan meant about having “skin in the game”. You use your skin color to rule over and intimidate whitey. Having the right color “skin in the game” gives you the much feared and much dreaded RACE CARD! Kind of like Dungeons and Dragon only creepier.
