Feds Investigate “Racist” Depiction Of Obama As A Zombie
Zombies are racist. Who knew?
Check it out:
Following complaints by the NAACP, the Department of Justice is investigating a parade float, labeled “racist” by the Nebraska Democratic Party, which featured President Obama depicted as a zombie.
The float, which featured in last week’s July 4th annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Nebraska, depicted a zombie stood outside a hut adorned with the words “Obama Presidential Library.”
The Nebraska Democratic Party responded by describing the float as among the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.”
What makes the controversy even more ludicrous is that the creator of the float, a local farmer, said the zombie wasn’t even supposed to represent Obama, but instead was a depiction of a victim of the recent VA health care scandal.
After the NAACP complained about the float to the Department of Justice, the DOJ demanded a meeting with Mayor Fuchtman and city administrators before the two parties met with NAACP representatives and parade organizers, who “plan to reevaluate the policies for what is allowed in the parade,” according to KTVI.
