Hi!
Im currently in Nebraska and I would like to point out how ridiculous this claim is.
In a recent Omaha World Herald or Lincoln Journal article, the maker of said float elaborated to the fact that the "zombie" was meant to depict himself waiting for the VA.

How it got construed that it was a depiction of Obama, no one is really sure. But the media keeps spewing that claim.

My opinion is that this was free speech and the float was registered political sattire. So wheres the fire!?!

Really though, that zombie looks nothing like Obama and the whole story confused me and wreaks of PC.

Should also note that the article mentioned that most of the floats opposers hail from Omaha and Lincoln and the majority of us here couldnt care less....


Former bugeater here.
Yeah...I love it how all of the usual crowd slather over this yet in the Unicameral state of Common Sense we take it as it is.
And the further extrapolation of those ATS disturbers...

It's an article in a publication of known political slant...to give it the thumbs up just screams the rest of your fingers are in your ears.

So are they going to investigate every lowbrow depiction of the President? If so, they have their work cut for them. I guess nothing else important is going on if they're focusing on this.

Sigh.

Well there is one thing that can be stated:

Where was the DOJ when Bush was made fun of, effigies of him burnt, hung and other items like that?

Bush was no panty-waist and had much thicker skin.

Some of these critters seem to have skin sooooo thin, it's a wonder their guts aren't dragging the sidewalk.

I am surprised with all of these "investigations" that someone has not only started the proceedings in court, but also started the process to sue Obama.

Holder can't be bothered to bring the New Black Panthers to justice .... can't be bothered to deal with the IRS and Rosengate scandals .. but he makes time to get all uptight about some folks in Nebraska using their free speech to make fun of his buddy Obama. yeah, that's a really well run justice dept .... /sarcasm.

Thank you President Obama for making the term "racist" a lampoon that has been so overused that it no longer has any real meaning.

Sincerely,

American victims of racism.

I think folks are toooooooo stressed out over toooooooooooo many outrageous things. Something has to fall off the priority list.

But some of this nonsensical absurdly stupid stuff needs to appear in court and have a judge throw the book at the officials and at the stupidity.

I wonder . . . the globalist oligarchy really is racist.

Some have claimed that they've even worked on bio-engineered plagues to exterminate other races/ genetic groups.

It would be a Neuro-Linguistic Programming strategy to propagandize the term so outrageously and persistently that it DID lose all its meaning . . . all its power to instantly trigger intense emotions.

It appears that they are playing both sides of that coin. They love to use and manipulate the intense emotions playing the race card triggers.

And, evidently they love to obliterate the term from useful meaning in the lives of many others.

It's kind of an interesting social phenomenon.

And a sad one on both counts.

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.



Your headline and the facts you provide seem to contradict one another? It looks like the DOJ sent a "Community Relations" team member? It's PR, not an "Investigation".

Kind of feel misled on clicking through to this thread?

'Walking-dead Americans'

anyone have a pic of the float maker? I wonder how much they look alike.

Do the Moonies still own the Times?
It's still about as good as the Daily Mail. And as reliable, too...
But I know no one will care about the money that these people make in advertising off of you (and remember to enter in your "special" code with their app (dont bother reading the terms and restrictions) for a chance at a hundred dollar Amazon gift card...

quote from Owlbear

Do you have any thoughts on the DOJ targeting an expression of free speech, which is the thread topic? or do you just want to be snarky about the source? do you work for the Post maybe?
