Obama parade parody causes controversy - But Bush bashing and even mock assassination of Bush in a movie was 100% fine....


HUNTSVILLE, Utah — A parade entry portraying President Barack Obama and using the term “Obamanation” has made some angry, and others upset at the negative attention.

It happened in the city’s annual Fourth of July parade.

The float showed a person dressed as President Obama with one sign that read “Huntsville Welcomes Obama’s Farewell Tour?” On the back, another sign said, “Ask about our assault gun plan. Call Eric Holder.”

On one side of the issue, people are saying the float was disrespectful and had no place in a patriotic parade. The other side says it was all in good fun.

Huntsville Mayor Jim Truett and City Council member Laurie Allen say the entry doesn’t reflect the views of the city. They say it was entered at the last minute, not through usual protocol and they would not have approved it if they had seen it.

“I don’t think we would have allowed it, in fact I know we wouldn’t,” said Allen. “We just don’t want that. It’s a family-oriented celebration.”

Weber County Sheriff Chief Deputy Klint Anderson told Fox 13 News his department contacted the Secret Service after some residents expressed concern the float was a threat to the President.

“We don’t decide what’s appropriate. That’s up to the town, the parade organizers and the people who design the float,” Anderson said.

What the Black Extortionist preachers tell us is the way it is. If they tell the White assholes it is wrong then that is it. We have been spoon fed this politically correct bullshit since the 1950's. It still goes on today. Give me a fucking break.

It's POLITICAL SPEECH. You know, the kind of Speech protected by the 1st Amendment that is subject to STRICT scrutiny.

In otherwords, it's perfectly FINE. If some people don't like it, that's even better. That's what makes this country so Great. The fact that you can be exposed to ideas, comments, and thoughts that you may disagree with.

As for it being a "family oriented" event - BULLSHIT! It's the 4th of July - we're celebrating our winning of a bloody war against the British Crown where we broke away from the assholes running the show at the time. We celebrate it every year to NEVER FORGET.

As for not allowing in the float - that's bullshit too. I'd just show the fuck up with it and start driving... Arrest me for my political speech - I dare you.

Obama will soon amend the First Amendment and outlaw any criticism of him.

All you beer swilling south side Catholics would be welcomed with open arms in Utah. At least you would have a new race to hate the drunken Native Americans panhandling all over SLC.
