Eric Holder to investigate “racist” parade float (bye bye 1st amendment)
America's Watchtower ^ | july 13

Posted on 07/13/2014 6:05:32 PM PDT by Cubs Fan

During an Independence Day parade in Nebraska there was a parade float with a caricature of Barack Obama standing in front of an out-house. The out-house was labeled as Barack Obama’s presidential library...

...Eric Holder...has announced he will be sending a team to Nebraska to investigate the parade float.

Normally I would oppose nazi comparisons, but here we have a president whose attorney general is using the force of government to silence 1st amendment protected opposition to Obama.

So I ask is Obama behaving more like a president or more like fuhrer? Is Holder behaving more like an attorney general or more like an SS enforcer?

You decide.

As Obama sinks further into the morass, its clear who his Goebbels and Himmler are - Jarrett and Holder. Others may come and go - but those two will be around to the bitter end.

The SOB won’t investigate Fast and Furious or the IRS scandal O the VA scandal, but he thinks a parade float in NE is a threat to the nation. He should be impeached.

Do people not understand they are racists and they are trying to shove their racism down everyone’s throat?

This is how American blacks have now been educated, that everything said about them is “racist” unless it’s completely complimentary.

Maybe Obama is just a crap president.

"Eric Holder to investigate “racist” parade float (bye bye 1st amendment)..."

... Well .... I guess this president must have quite an amazing and squeaky clean track record if this is the only controversy deemed important enough for the Attorney General to investigate. Heck ... I bet after his presidency is completed .... he will be considered to be the greatest President in the history of the United States of America! ( And to consider him otherwise will result in a lifetime prison or death sentence for disagreeing with his place in history )

Yep, seems like it. I saw this at American Thinker earlier today.

excerpt:

"There are only a finite number of resources at Eric Holder’s Department of Justice, so there's no time or manpower available to look into trivial matters such as NSA spying on Americans, IRS targeting political enemies, or the Veterans Administration allegedly killing thousands of vets and covering it up.

What kind of paranoid, insecure presidential administration reacts to an insult to their honor with a federal investigation, particularly when there are so many urgent critical threats to Americans that they have refused to investigate? Even Nixon wasn't this Nixonian. This is Kim Jong-un territory."

The whole meme about NAZI comparisons was nothing but a way for libs to stop people from making accurate comparisons.

How thin skinned can you get? He’s going to be rated the worst president ever, he should get used to it.

Holder doesn't believe blacks can be resist...which is as you describe it, his racism.

What is racist about that float? It’s no difference than calling Clinton’s “lie-barry” a mo-bile home.

Didn’t they also have an investigation of the Obama mask rodeo clown incident?

If I recall correctly, the rodeo clown was fired, and the other rodeo clowns were sent to a reeducation seminar, at which they learned about how to me more sensitive in what clown masks they use.

So even if there was a racial component that animated the builders...so what? Are you going to charge them with a hate crime? Bring it Holder, you;re nothing but a domestic terrorist.

I am free to not like anyone, for any reason (including race) for reasons that are wholly my own, and they are not subject to negotiation or government coercion.

According to that story, Holder sent the “Community Relations Team;” if I recall correctly, the “Community Relations Team” was established to help rabel-rouse, not to investigate.

Also IIRC, the “Community Relations Team” participated in the legal minuet that took place down in Sanford, FL immediately after the death of Trayvon Martin.

What is there to investigate, everyone knows, and only a few refuse to admit, that this administration is in the toilet. Their priorities are scattered! Obviously there is no one leading. Could it be they are too busy counting their $$$$ behind the closed doors of Government to be bothered about leading? If they did this to Bush in a parade, it would be front page news, and the subject of jokes on the late night shows. Now we have to contend with the thought police? Amerika, what a country.

Just what law was broken. I don’t remember it being against the constitution to insult someone. The first amendment was drafted to protect political speech.
