Justice Department enters fray over 4th of July [anti-Obama] parade float in Norfolk
Omaha World-Herald ^ | July 11, 2014 | Emerson Clarridge

Posted on 07/14/2014 10:31:16 PM PDT by grundle

The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade.

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 Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

The Odd Fellows organized the parade. One of the floats included a zombie-like mannequin standing near an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library.”

There was a time back when America was a free country that it was okay to do stuff like this. We had the First Amendment and all that stuff. Freedom, you never really think about it until you lose it.

Gotta use liberal logic..see..when a conservative gets hung it’s deserved because, well, they are conservative so everything is justified..but when someone makes a joke about the precious Obama the left can’t take a joke

This is a horrible shot over the bow for all Americans who would mock Der Fuhrer. Obastard and his evil minions are going to bring the full force of the fedgov down on the Odd Fellows and the chap who created the float, just like they did to D’Souza. The message is simple...”nice life you’ve got there, pal. Would be a shame if something happened to it.”

Gangster government at its finest.

This is a relaxing and therapeutic screen saver.

As you watch this screen saver, if the falling figure gets stuck, all you have to do is drag the figure to the side a bit to avoid the obstacle. You can also grab the figure with the mouse and bash it into things.

Or, you can place the figure between the obstacles and watch it flail helplessly, which may make you feel better.

He won’t be criticized for long. Holder’s goon squads will see to that.

That’s it in the picture...why that’s tame compared to the anti-war Bush effigies.

The guys who put this float together ought to not meet with the bigots from DoJ. But if they do get a big picture of the new black panthers and their baseball bats standing outside a voting station and just hold it up whenever they are questioned.

With all of the redacted documents in the White House and crashed hard drives, an outhouse is big enough to archive Bambi’s presidential travesty.

His executive usurpations (er orders) could supply the toilet paper for years to come.

Would the DOJ have jumped in if a parade in the ‘90s had a truck pulling an old, small travel trailer with signs indicating it was the Clinton Presidential Library?

After all, Clinton’s library does look like a trailer house.

Freedom, you never really think about it until you lose it.

Maybe that accounts for the fact, that I am always thinking about freedom. If we were going to have a communist country, how would it be different from what it is now?

The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team...

I see the Regime has gone all 1984 naming departments the opposite of what they are.
Ministry of Love = torture.
Community Relations Service team = intimidation racket.

This "story" is more deflection. It's the Regime's current "Goldstein" (i.e. the "enemy" to deflect the prols attention).

Perhaps the funniest Sr HS prank was putting an old outhouse on top of the rear of the high school with the name of the asst principal - 'office of Mr .....' The asst principal got a good laugh out of it, but had to show some indignation so as not to encourage such behavior.

An oldie but goodie

"Obastard and his evil minions are going to bring the full force of the fedgov...."

This is accelerating.
Conservatives think they have to the 2016 elections - I think they are wrong.
We will not make it that far, Obozo will see to that, he knows if we get there in one piece we'll start to dismantle his work.

I would agree to talk to the “Community Services” fellow only in the presence of my lawyer and a television camera.

I might just wear my #butthirt t-shirt for good measure.

Oh, so the “Minders” are called the community relations service team?

They should have named them the “thought police” or better yet...the “mind doctors.”

Free speech and freedom of thought are now a crime...especially if the citizen is WHITE.

Perhaps the next parade should include a manure spreader FULL of cow dung and hang a sign on it saying, “Here lies politically correct” or....(I’m looking for suggestions folks, jump on)

Mr. Remmich should refuse to participate in any discussion/investigation of his parade float. Holder and the NAACP can't intimidate you if you don't give them an audience. Let Holder press charges and then Remmich can counter-sue.

Souls do not have color.

Skin color is a poor excuse for blaming one’s shortcomings on others.
