DOJ investigates Nebraska parade float critical of Obama
WashingtonTimes ^ | 13 Jul 2014 | Jessica Chasmar-

The U.S. Department of Justice has sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to investigate a Nebraska parade float that criticized President Obama. A Fourth of July parade float featured at the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk sparked criticism when it depicted a zombie-like figure resembling Mr. Obama standing outside an outhouse, which was labeled the “Obama Presidential Library.”

All that remains is for Obama to start the Reichstag fire.

:: it depicted a zombie-like figure resembling Mr. Obama ::

So, do I call DOJ about my “figure resembling of Mr. Obama” left behind in my toilet this morning?

Awesome. The Government is investigating an Independence-day float.

This sort of cr*p is why you guys revolted in the first place.

The float’s creator, Dale Remmich, has said the mannequin depicted himself, not President Obama.

I’m sure the FBI agent tasked to that investigation would rather be working on something important than talking to some rednecks to find out who bought the lumber to build an outhouse and an Obama statue. I’m guessing his real goal will be to identify who built it so he can send their info to the IRS for a tax audit and have Holder terrorize some ‘po white folks as part of the Jarrett payback plan.

Those are stock wheels from a newer F150.. the truck in the photo is 80-86 vintage, the wheels are 87-91, honestly he probably needed new tires and those where on a truck in the junk yard.. They are known for rust and the box probably fell off so they bolted on the flat bed.

He’s not only a rebel. he’s a redneck.

we need more of him ;)

Already tried it once.

Did you forget the 2010 attempted car bombing in NYC which they tried to blame on the TEA Party?

I imagine what Holder’s DOJ is pissed off about is that the outhouse wasn’t painted in rainbow colors.

We have zero tolerance policy when it comes to criticizing minority politicians, albeit left wing, and maybe this is a good thing. This is why I am for us getting it right next time, and elect someone like Ben Carson, a man everyone, everywhere can respect and emulate. However, I am sure criticism of him will be tolerated by the media because he’s a conservative, but then again I might be wrong.

The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.”

Emphasis mine. There's that word again. The word that has lost all meaning. But if you look it up:

Pray tell, how does that definition fit this situation?

I believe that those wheels are OEM. Most likely off of a later model Ford of the early to mid 90’s vintage rather than the 1982 wheels that came on the truck.

Poor communication on my part. Though I did use the word “updated”, the “not at all stock” referred to the production of the truck itself, but I now see that those words could easily be construed to indicated that they are not Ford production wheels, which they indeed are.

The problem with the racist card when it comes to Dear Leader, is that most focus on the black half of him, and seem to forget that he is also half-white. It seems that way too many forget that little detail. It isn’t the color of his skin that people despise, but his policies and political leanings.

( United States Department of Justice The Community Relations Service (CRS) helps local communities address community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national ...)

Holder enjects the race card again...criticism of our hyphenated Kenyan/Arab pres. is verboten...apparently. I hope the good folks of Nebraska remember how rancher Bundy was treated and stand up to these non-elected CRC people...this is America for the Lord's sake...Holder is a clueless half black idiot!

(the REAL Uncle Tom) read the entire article, it is surprising how badly rich AND poor Americans are educated and so willing to believe the propaganda or badly researched events in our expensive public school and college text books...even "the Civil War" is misnamed, leading to a fair amount of ignorance as to the real cause of that horrible, unnecessary and costly conflict. Try this for some facts (When in the Course of Human Events - Arguing the case of Southern Secession)...the facts are here and well presented.

Yep. And I winder how much of this would have happened if there had been a white guy standing outside the outhouse.

“Racism” is completely overblown and overused. It doesn’t mean anything to me. Except, when I hear the word I know it’s coming from a liberal :)
