The extent to which the current administration considers things racist is getting out of hand lately as now, even a float driven through a parade has been deemed as such. The ridiculousness of the claim however has raised new heights most recently as Attorney General Eric Holder has announced that he’d be looking into the Americans who were responsible for such an atrocity.
The float depicted an outhouse on the back of a pickup truck with the words, “Obama’s Presidential Library” inscribed on the side. Since the picture of the hilarious joke went viral however, Holder has announced that he’s sent out a member of the Community Relations Service (CRS) to investigate.
According to the Washington Times:
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.”
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.”
The Omaha World-Herald reported Friday that the Department of Justice sent a CRS member who handles discrimination disputes to a Thursday meeting about the issue.
Oh the times we live in which racism is claimed when offense is taken therefore trampling upon our First Amendment rights. Come to think of it though, I don’t think it says we have the right to say what we want so long as it doesn’t offend anyone – or does it? Silly me.
Let us know what you think of Holder’s ludicrous waste of time and money in the comments below.
