Another attempt to keep the flames of hatred and division going...especially with elections coming up.

Is this the same USPS that photographs every piece of mail? They don't have security cameras throughout the facility? Here in little ole Broussard, LA our post office is bristling with cameras. If they were machine guns, the building would look like a B-17 on its way to Berlin....

You can bet the feds will put more effort into investigating the noose hoax then they put into Benghazi, the IRS or Fast & Furious.

The Luftwaffe called the B-17 the Stechelschwein (porcupine).

Have ANY of these “nooses” ever been shown to be by a hater and not a liberal trying to stir up talk of “hate crimes”?

Well, I mean except for the genuine HATE expressed by these liberal moonbats who hung Sarah Palin by a noose on the eve of the 2008 election.

They also act like no whites were ever hanged. It is more commie propaganda about “lynching.” Meanwhile, for decades there has been a silent epidemic of black on white crime, including rape and murder, with nary a peep from DC. Yet a piece of rope is a federal issue?

Time to get the base fired up again. Hopefully they find the black man that hung the noose, though.

Unions lynched “scabs” and there is no mention of it today.

Postal Union may have a designated position of Postal Facility Noose Remover.

Thus, if that is not in ‘your’ official position duties, ‘you’ have no authorization to remove such.

I remember back in the 50’s it was popular to play with a plastic material called gimp. The girls would weave it into bracelets and necklaces and the boys would make tiny swords with gimp, beads and straight pins. We also made nooses. Nobody thought of them as indicating lynching’s. We were into westerns.

Yeah, they will make a Federal case out of this which will mysteriously disappear when it turns out the noose was planted by one of Holders people.

How to tie a hangman’s noose is in the Ashley Book of Knots, published in 1944. It describes nearly 4000 different knots and how to tie them. Barnes and Noble sells it, along with Amazon.

Instead of a stress ball at my old job I had a length of paracord I use to practice my knots. I made a noose and hung it from my desk lamp. NO ONE CARED!!!

Now it warrants the full force and power of the federal government? What the hell? We have a literal invasion on our border and THIS is what’s important to these clowns?

Until it is found to have been placed by a member of an aggrieved minority group, at which point it will fade into oblivion.

“They also act like no whites were ever hanged. It is more commie propaganda about “lynching.” Meanwhile, for decades there has been a silent epidemic of black on white crime, including rape and murder, with nary a peep from DC. Yet a piece of rope is a federal issue?”

They also vastly overstate the number of lynching that have occurred over hundreds of years, by simply retreating to “nobody bothered reporting them”. Libs are solving this problem with abortion and contraception...

The last time a white person used a noose as a symbol of hate is when the Democrats used them in the Jim Crow South.

Good historic catch. They called the B-24s “Ronsons” because they lit up every time. The B-24 was a great long range naval patrol aircraft and a horrible heavy bomber for AA rich areas because of its serious vulnerability.

the boys would make tiny swords with gimp, beads and straight pins.


Making those at home, and selling them at school, was my first successful business venture. Profit went mainly to buy .22 shells. Yes, 2nd-4th grade, and I had a rifle.

Haven’t shot anyone yet, but I did once grab a short sword off the wall, and use the flat of the blade to head-bonk, then butt-beat a drunk and belligerent neighbor, who barged through my front door with an imaginary grievance, out of the house. Nice guy sober, so didn’t want to hurt him.

Wonder if the rally is "pro-noose" or "anti-noose" ?

Are they protesting because it didn’t have the requisite 13 wraps? Or because it did?

Well, any port in a storm - when you’ve got to have constant fuel to keep the base inflamed over racism and intolerance, why not assert that a noose is surely a sign of such outrages run amok, even though there’ve been multiples more whites than minorities hung in the history of this country....
