Recently there has been a lot of hype around it so you can imagine how it could make anyone feel

Umm, no, I can't.

And, I suppose car tires remind people of......

“You known that this reminds African-Americans of lynchings that were done in the South,” said Griffin to the homeowner.

I would’ve responded. “Um, ok....how’s that my problem?”

This is soooooooooo stupid. I’ve been hanging dummies from flagpoles at holloween since I was 12 years old. No one ever complained here in CT before.

Speaking of nooses, I enjoyed watching Clint Eastwood and Inger Stevens in “Hang ‘em High” last night.

What if the person being suspended is a white coal mine worker?

I see the OSM (old stream media) talking points emails have went out and they involve nooses.

As a history, in 2000 if anyone recalls it was James Byrd and Churches being burned in the South and Midwest..as a way to gin up the African American vote for Dhimmis, well, the Dhimmis are no longer infavor of churches, so they have to find something to keep the story line alive...and here we have nonsensical Halloween noose refernces in place of Burnt Churches...

The template, unlike the subject, never changes....

Come on, Jimmie...get on the ball! This was for a Halloween display, and you’re only just now getting around to complaining about it? Usually you can sniff out those racist white devils almost instantaneously.

  • "It brings back some bad memories about our history in this country," said Griffin.
  • You known that this reminds African-Americans of lynchings that were done in the South," said Griffin to the homeowner.
  • Griffin says ... symbolism of the noose is extremely sensitive and others should be aware of that.
  • "It seems to me that lately it's hard for people to not know that nooses are an embarrassment to hang anymore," Griffin said.

Get over it mr perpetually offended Jimmie Griffin and NAACP. And if I was the homeowner I'd have two words for you and here's a hint -- they ain't 'Happy Kwanzaa'.

I remember seeing nooses at Halloween beginning many years ago. I think it’s stupid, ghoulish, ridiculous and a total waste of time and money. But it’s not racist. In the past few months the race-baiters decided that they would add one more thing to the huge list of things that are automatically called racist: ropes. Now the FBI investigates ropes. Why didn’t it investigate ropes last year and the year before? Because NO ONE considered ropes racist!

Why we could all guess that if an abortion suction aspirator machine was depicted as Halloween decor, that folks would be up in arms about that, too.

I wonder if this is more “frightening” then when people leave the downtown office late to walk to their cars, or when they get onto the mass transit and realize they’re the only white person there?

I wonder if the author of this report has ever been so “frightened” and whether he/she chose to editorialize on that experience?

I collapse and break into tears at the sight of a knife because of the history of scalping settlers by “Native Americans”. My lawsuits against any store with a housewares section have been very lucrative.

Not to mention how the sight of a box of saltines puts me in a suicidal depression because of the decades of abuse by “African Americans” calling us “crackers”.

I had a hanging man in my front tree also, probably purchased from the same internet merchant. I was waiting for someone to complain but it never happened. In fact, I always get compliments on my halloween decorations..........

I have a former neighbor (Caucasian) that would also be a bit sensitive to it:

He’s served/serving (not sure about his release date) time in the Wyoming state pen for cattle rustling.

Considering some of his other local dealings, including with us before we found out what a shady character he is, I wouldn't be surprised to find out he was related to Mr. Haney, and had stolen & eaten Arnold.
