That very funny depiction of Donald Trump executing Hillary Clinton, presumably for treason, has raised the hackles of some white women.
The women are outraged (faux outrage?) over that depiction and a depiction of a “racist” Obama head. They are claiming that it sets a bad example for children who were present for the parade.
As you read the story, bear in mind that these women probably support aborting children. They also would probably support Gay Pride parades that have real live naked or nearly naked men simulating anal copulation.
If I were a reporter I would ask these women tough questions about what they think is OK concerning children. The fact that I would ask such questions is why I am banned from being a reporter.
The creator of a polarizing float at an Indiana fair that depicted Donald Trump executing Hillary Clinton in an electric chair has now apologized, after the effigy sparked protests.
The 2016 Aurora Farmer’s Fair parade took place on Saturday in the southeastern Indiana town of roughly 3,750 people.
Frank Linkemeyer and his brother have created floats each year ‘spoofing’ a variety of subjects, however it was their controversial decision to have a man dressed as Trump and a woman as Clinton that raised eyebrows, WCPO reported.
It depicted Clinton in an electric chair with Trump ready to pull the switch.
The float also featured an Easter Island head painted black with a black face and a sign that identified it as President Obama.
There was also a preacher and a person in a ‘Death’ costume carrying a scythe.
Aurora mom Penny Britton slammed the float as racist and sexist.
‘Who thinks this is appropriate for a fair parade where children, some of them minorities and girls, are marching and playing instruments and watching?’: Britton wrote on Facebook.
‘Who thinks this is something to laugh at or be proud of? This is disgusting.This makes me embarrassed to say I live here.’
However, Linkemeyer, who is a Democrat, dismissed the outrage.
‘Could have had Donald Trump in the electric chair. It was a tossup,’ Linkemeyer told WCPO.
‘It’s all in fun. Laughter is the best medicine in life and this country needs more laughter — and the people that are offended by it, I’m sorry. Don’t come to the parade next time.’
Plenty of locals did not share these sentiments.
‘My initial reaction was I’m just appalled,’ Jackie Reynolds said.
‘For us to be in 2016 and have our President depicted as an Easter Island statue in black face doesn’t even make any sense, but it’s as racist as can be.’
Racist? No it’s not. Obama misuse of power against white people is racist. That Easter Island head is satire, which I admit I don’t understand.
