    Justice Department enters fray over 4th of July parade float in Norfolk

    http://www.omaha.com/news/nebraska/j...e48e76c5a.html

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

    The float’s creator, Dale Remmich, has said the mannequin depicted himself, not President Barack Obama. He said he is upset with the president’s handling of the Veterans Affairs Department.

    “Looking at the float, that message absolutely did not come through,” said Betty C. Andrews, the president of NAACP branches in Iowa and Nebraska.

    I'd say I'm disappointed, but that would require me to have had higher expectations at this point in the administration.
    Don't call it a comeback. It's a riposte.

      Oh come now... You still had some expectations, right?

        There's a new scandal every week. There was a point when I thought the administration might be only morally bankrupt, not outright incompetent. Turns out it's both.

          I like the claim that this was "racist" (based on the false idea that the zombie was Obama). Apparently there's a stereotype about black people being zombies that I've never heard of or something.

          Also, even if the zombie was supposed to be Obama, liberals did far worse to various likenesses of Bush (see here for a metric butt-load of examples) and I guarantee you never heard any complaints about any of that from the people complaining about this now, the hypocrites.

            Their hypocrisy abounds!

                Oh, but the criticism that Obama faces is absolutely unprecedented...and stuff. You're just racist, you racist.

                  No, seer, it's a disgusting thing to put in a parade and people have every right to be upset about it. That some people were hypocritical in their responses compared to what others did to Bush's likeness doesn't change that fact. And really, you need to look up what the word "communist" actually means. It has no application here. It's clear that you heard it somewhere and decided to use it as your catch-all insult for everything you dislike, despite the fact that the meaning doesn't fit into any context in which you use it.

                    While I agree that seer is far from conscientious in his use of the terms "communist" or "socialist," I think getting the Justice Department involved in a small town's parade float that is critical of the Obama administration's handling of veterans' affairs is just plain disproportionate.
                    Don't call it a comeback. It's a riposte.

                      Do you also think that mostly naked gay men feigning sexual acts in public parades is equally disgusting? The fact is political satire is as American as apple pie. And when I use Communist or Fascist it is completely appropriate since they too, like the Obama Justice Dept in this case, use the government to attempt to squash political dissent. Just like what they used the IRS in the last election cycle to do.

                            Because your post is the last one on the page and I don't know how to isolate one post to give a link to it.
