Why Is a Hangin’ Truck Driving Around NYC With President Obama On a Noose?
The Blaze ^ | May 4 2012 | Mike Opelka

Posted on 05/05/2012 11:12:05 AM PDT by yoe

After two decades of living and working in Manhattan, this average New Yorker believed he had seen everything. Today proved that to be a false assumption.

Walking out of the Blaze headquarters on 6th Avenue in Midtown, I encountered this very strange vehicle driving up the street. (American speaks to "Obama")

View all, if you're not Travon's family, you're not recognized by Obama's people.

what’s a little rope a dope now and then. When it was Bush, it didnt matter, now it’s a big deal? The clown that wrote the article called the not so secret service to complain, what an idiot.

"View all, if you're not Travon's family, you're not recognized by Obama's people."

If you are postin on Free Republic, you are either a troll, or not recognized by Obama's people (perhaps both).

There are thousands of lone kooks like this out there who represent no opinion but their own. The only reason this is being covered is to equivocate with the crazy leftists we’ve seen lately marching with pro communism banners, and advocating all kinds of twisted policies. By highlighting a kook who appears to hate Obama it makes it easy to say, “Well there are plenty of kooks on both sides,” and marginalize the extremists on the left. However the difference is that the left-wing kooks are part of a large segment on the Left that the Democrat party can never bring itself to publicly renounce.

I didn’t see Obama with a noose around his neck. Which video is it, and at what elapsed time?

This man is not necessarily a kook. His brother was killed and an attempt was made to assassinate his father in the mid 1990s by shooting him in the head — but the father lived. The man is fighting local corruption and is trying to draw attention to his case. Sounds like the judge is in cahoots with drug dealers. Apparently the dispute started over a piece of property. I wish Mr. Phipps could explain the injustice his family has suffered a little bit better.

No where in either video or any photo was 0bama hanging from a noose. Is Glenn Beck trying to make The Blaze even more of a joke than WND? This man's entire presentation is about a solicitation of 0bama to initiate a Federal investigation into what he believes to be a murder and coverup by the state officials of NC.

The title of the article is entirely misleading. In fact it is essentially a lie. Beck should be ashamed to publish crapola like this.

He's an idiot alright. 0bama was not hung in effigy on a truck or anywhere else.

I clearly see a Caucasian dummy identified as obama in the truck with a noose around its’ neck.

Part of living in a country with freedom of speech rights.

How could you tell what he/she said? It’s unintelligible gibberish.

You have watched videos of this man in his home state with 6 effigies in the truck.

For whatever reason, he has added 2 more effigies, 1 being labeled as Commander in Chief Obama, and is now driving around New York City.

My apologies. He completely changed the display from either video as well as the message he was sending with them. He also changed the clothes on the 0bama effigy. I could barely read the sign but that’s my mistake.

All you did was read the headline which is a bald-faced lie.

All you did was jump to a conclusion because you disagree with me, creating your own "bald-faced lie." I read the whole freaking story and stand by my comment.

If you are on FR and a friend of Obama, you might be a troll. I don’t know you, but I strongly suspect you are no troll.
